Russia poses the most acute cybersecurity threat to the United Kingdom.

Fleming, in particular, pointed to the alleged involvement of Russia in cyberattacks on the IT company SolarWinds. Earlier, the media noted that the hacking of SolarWinds software affected several hundred organizations around the world, as well as US government departments.

Another country that threatens UK security is China, Fleming said. And if Russia poses the most acute threat to the kingdom in the current context, its scale is not as significant as that of China. “Russia can influence the weather, but China is able to determine the state of the climate,” said the head of GCHQ. “The threat posed by Russia can be compared to the vulnerability of a specific application on your phone: it’s dangerous, but you can probably take advantage of an alternative. However, there are concerns that China’s size and technological strength gives it the potential to gain control of the entire global operating system, ”he added.

According to Fleming, the center of gravity in the field of technology is shifting to Asia, so the West, and Britain in particular, must be prepared to deal with new challenges. “We have come to a tipping point. It is becoming more and more obvious that if there is no action, the key technologies that we rely on for future prosperity and security will not be formed and controlled by the West, ”he said. According to the head of GCHQ, the transfer of leadership in the field of technology from the West to other countries will allow those not to reckon with the values ​​of freedom or to bypass the norms adopted today. “States that do not share our values ​​will be able to create technologies in accordance with their values,” he added.

Go unnoticed with your Mac: hide it in a WiFi network | Lifestyle

Connecting to a WiFi (or cable) network has become something of the most common and, also, completely necessary, since this is how you normally access the Internet. It is possible that on some occasion you need to go unnoticed in this case, and we will tell you how to get it with a Mac de Apple.

Being visible on a network has many benefits, such as being able to interact with other connected equipment, and in this way from sharing content to other functions. But, at times this is not needed, and therefore it may be that you intend that no one knows that you are connected. This means that you do not leave any trace for the rest of the users.

Hide your computer on a network

If you have a computer with Apple’s macOS operating system, getting this is pretty easy … as long as you know the Steps that you should give. In addition, what you must do does not imply the installation of any calf application, since all the tools you need are included in your computer (whether desktop or laptop). We indicate below the configuration that you must establish on your device:

  • Connect your computer to a network and then access the System preferences that exist in Apple’s operating system.
  • Within the control software that you have opened, you should look for the Share option and use it regularly.
  • Now you will see a window that has a column in the left area full of options. What you have to do here is deselect everything that exists active. Leave absolutely nothing.
  • Possibly a dialog will appear asking for the timeout period for sharing. Set zero minutes for the new configuration to run immediately.
  • Once this is done, your computer will no longer be visible to other users on the network to which it is connected. Everything is that simple.

Things to keep in mind

One of the most important is that by doing this file sharing is disabled on the network, so you will not be able to copy anything from the rest of the existing computers (and they neither from your computer). By the way, there is an element in which a trace of the presence is left: in the router, so the system technicians will be able to know that it has been connected.
