Password managers vulnerable to insider hacking

A new study shows that communication channels between different parts and pieces of computer software are prone to security breaches. Anyone with access to a shared computer – co-workers, family members, or guests – can ...

For identical quantum channels, order matters

Physicists have demonstrated that using two quantum channels in different orders can enhance a communication network's ability to transmit information—even, counterintuitively, when the channels are identical. This result ...

US radio giant iHeartMedia files for bankruptcy

Leading US radio company iHeartMedia, which runs some of the country's most popular Top 40 stations, has filed for bankruptcy protection as it struggles to pay $20 billion in debt.

How to outwit noise in quantum communication

How to reliably transfer quantum information when the connecting channels are impacted by detrimental noise? Scientists at the University of Innsbruck and TU Wien (Vienna) have presented new solutions to this problem.

Coding theorem defines decoding error capacity for general scenarios

The rate at which information can be coded so that it can be decoded within a particular error probability constraint is one of the "major research topics in information theory" as Hideki Yagi at the University of Electro-Communications, ...
