The Struggle of Modern Day Intrusion Detection Systems

  • Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are the first line of defense for any system or network.
  • AN IDS can either be rule-based, where traffic of any kind has to be checked by a set of rules in order to pass through, or created using machine learning algorithms, where the algorithm is dynamically creating new rules based on the type of traffic it sees.
  • These systems detect and classify traffic as good or malicious, and are the inherent gatekeepers of the system/network.
  • In this case, an adversarial attack would be an attack against an IDS.
  • There are four cases when traffic attempts to pass through an IDS.
  • Adversarial AI focuses on these last two cases; by fooling the system, the adversarial AI system can choose which traffic can enter and which can be rejected.

Omar: An administration 'that lies about weather maps' can't be trusted on Iran

  • Washington (CNN) - Rep. Ilhan Omar on Monday dismissed President Donald Trump's ability to navigate escalating tensions with Iran, pointing to the controversy over Hurricane Dorian's path and whether it would hit Alabama.
  • Omar's invocation of past Trump administration falsehoods comes after Trump told reporters Monday that "it's looking like" Iran was behind this weekend's attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia but suggested it was too early to say for sure.
  • The freshman Democrat was specifically referencing Trump's multiple false claims that Hurricane Dorian was likely to hit Alabama and a controversy from just after his inauguration in 2017, when then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump's inauguration crowd was the largest ever in contradiction to all available data.
  • As Trump gears up for a 2020 reelection battle, a notable lack of public trust in information coming from the White House -- such as the falsehoods Omar referenced -- continue to dog his administration.

US service member killed in Afghanistan after Trump cancels peace talks

  • Washington (CNN) - Another US service member was killed in action in Afghanistan on Monday, according to the military, the 17th American to be killed in combat there this year.
  • Earlier this month, President Donald Trump said that he canceled secret talks with the Taliban that were to be held at Camp David after the Taliban took credit for an attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed a dozen people, including an American soldier.
  • "I immediately canceled the meeting and called off peace negotiations," the President added at the time.
  • Trump said as recently as late last month that he is planning to withdraw thousands of US forces from Afghanistan but will keep 8,600 troops in the country at least for the time being.
  • It's not clear if his announcement regarding the canceled Camp David meeting will impact that plan.

Most of the Mind Can’t Tell Fact from Fiction

  • That seems like a liability: Philosophers have long concerned themselves with what they call “the paradox of fiction”—why would we find imagined stories emotionally arousing at all?
  • At the same time, very young children “can rationally deal with the make-believe aspects of stories,” distinguishing the actual, the possible, and the fantastical with sophistication, as Denis Dutton has written in The Art Instinct.
  • Just as artificial sweeteners fool our minds into thinking we’re eating sugar, stories—even weird ones like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland—take advantage of our natural tendency to want to learn about real people, and how to treat them.
  • Every time our ancestors saw something that looked like a human face, it probably was one.
  • The rational parts of our minds, particularly in the prefrontal cortex, do indeed know that what we’re looking at, or reading, isn’t real.

Facebook removed a fact-check on anti-abortion video after Ted Cruz complained

  • callbackManager.add(function(){ googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-456245625425492648-1'); if(!document['roadblockable']){ googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[10]], {changeCorrelator: false}); } }); }); The video, posted by campaigner Lila Rose for the anti-abortion organisation Live Action, claimed that abortion is never medically necessary.
  • Live Action also claimed that Facebook had informed it that its content would be restricted due to “repeated sharing of false news.” Read more: “They threw us under the bus at every opportunity”: Facebook fact-checkers say its mission to weed out fake news was a PR stunt if(mobile){ // check if mobile viewport callbackManager.add(function(){ googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-25613-7'); }); if(!document['roadblockable']){ function maybeShowAdMobileInContent(){ if (window.scrollY >= adInContentAlmostVisibleScrollValue && !refreshed_in_content_ad) { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[7]], {changeCorrelator: false}); }); // Refresh the ad only once.
