Berlin, Sep 1 (PTI) Researchers have uncovered Italian dictator Benito Mussolinis message to the future – a text hidden underneath a 300-tonne obelisk in Rome that throws new light on his fascist regime and how it wished to be seen by future generations.Written in Latin on parchment, the text is buried along with gold coins at the base of the Mussolini Obelisk in the Foro Italico sports complex in Rome.The existence of the text was uncovered by two scholars, Bettina Reitz-Joosse from University of Groningen in the Netherlands and Han Lamers from Humboldt University Berlin.They are first to translate the Codex Fori Mussolini, which is buried at the base of the 300-tonne monument erected in 1932.The researchers pieced together what they believe to be an accurate version of the text from three obscure sources found in libraries and archives in Rome. The original text remains out of reach in the base of the obelisk.”The obelisk was a major spectacle but the existence of the text wasnt reported at all. It was meant for an audience in the remote future,” Reitz-Joosse, was quoted as saying by the BBC News.The 1,200-word eulogy describes the rise of fascism and Mussolinis feats. It was written by a classical scholar, Aurelio Giuseppe Amatucci in three parts.”The text presents Mussolini as a kind of new Roman emperor, but also, by using biblical language, as the saviour of the Italian people,” Lamers said, who also works with the Catholic University of Leuven.advertisementAccompanying the text is a medal depicting Mussolini wearing a lionskin over his head.

India beat Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs to win the second Test at Colombo.15.00 IST: That is it from us for this match. India have continued their dominance over the Islanders and won what was quite a one-sided series. Whereas the Lankan side have a lot of issues to solve and come up with new plans for the third and final Test which will be played on the 3rd of August at Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo 10:00 local time. 14.45 IST: Another Test which ends inside 4 days. Kohli leads his team of the field and it has been a dominant performance by the visiting side. They took 6 wickets in this session and have clinched the series 2-0. Jadeja is the man of the moment for the Indians as he bagged a brilliant 5-fer. For the Lankans they showed good fight in the second innings but it was never going to be enough.

However they ended the third day well on 209 for two but still needing 230 runs to make India bat again.Mendis was out for 110, his third Test hundred a few overs before close of play caught by wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha off seamer Hardik Pandya. He faced 135 deliveries and hit 17 boundaries.Karunaratne was unbeaten on 92 batting with night watchman Malinda Pushpakumara on two. Karunaratne faced 200 deliveries and hit 12 boundaries in his watchful innings.India declared its first innings on 622 for nine.India reaped early success when fast bowler Umesh Yadav bowled out opener Upul Tharanga (2) with a ball nipping back into the left-hander with the team on seven runs.However both Mendis and Karunaratne made Indian bowlers to toil specially Mendia scoring bulk of his runs with the sweep shot.Niroshan Dickwella who scored Sri Lanka’s only half-century in the first Test said his team came out with a different mindset in the second innings after a long meeting at lunch interval.He said they had plans to use more of the sweep and reverse sweep shots as scoring options.Ravichandran Ashwin, who bagged his 26th five-wicket haul in the first innings, went wicketless having bowled 24 overs.Ashwin said that Indian bowlers were not faulty in the second innings but credited Sri Lanka’s batsmen for good batting.”We beat the bat pretty often even in the sessions we didn’t get the wickets. I thought they batted really well.””I don’t think we did too much wrong, we tried all, reverse swing, we bowled cutters. It (the pitch) is slowing down at a very very quick pace, the edges are not carrying. That means we have to stick our guns out and get a few wickets.”The hosts resumed the third day on 50 for two in their first innings but lost their remaining eight wickets for 133.Ashwin finished with five for 69 while fellow spinner Ravindra Jadeja and fast bowler Mohammed Shami took two wickets each.Jadeja broke through first in the day having Dinesh Chandimal (10) caught by Pandya. Chandimal’s overnight partner Mendis attempted to force Yadav over the infield only to be caught by Indian skipper Virat Kohli.Ashwin forced Angelo Mathews (26) for a close-in catch to Chetenshwar Pujara and Jadeja bowled out Dhananjaya de Silva.Dickwella played an aggressive innings in a bid to break free from pressure. But Shami bowled him out for a 48-ball 51.A win here will seal the three-match series for India after their 304-run win in the first Test.
RCB’s Moeen Ali, who is set to leave for England to prepare for the World Cup, Tuesday said leaving the IPL midway is a shame, especially when there is a slim chance of his team making it into the semi-final if they win all the remaining games.However, he would keep an eye on how RCB is shaping up, Ali said, getting ready for the RCB-Kings XI Punjab clash at the Chinnaswamy stadium here Wednesday.”It’s not ideal. I think it’s worse when there are three games to go. If there were 6, 7 games, it was a little more understandable.And knowing that there could be a chance of going through if we win all our games, then you miss out on a potential semifinal and stuff, but I will definitely keep an eye out and see how they are going, hoping that we are winning all our games,” he told reporters on the eve of the match.Replying to a query, Ali said IPL has helped him prepare well for the world cup as it gave him an opportunity to rub shoulders with foreign players and get enough time at the nets to improve skills.Asked if he preferred batting up the order for RCB, Ali said this would not bother him much.”We tried left and right combination to make it tougher for the bowlers and fielders. … I may prefer to come in as early as possible. I am not to worried until the team is winning and I am doing okay,” he said.advertisementOn RCB depending too much on AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli, Ali said it was very difficult for a team to rely on two batsmen.”… My job is to come and score some runs as quickly as AB and Virat and take the game away from the opposition, if one of them fails to get a start,” he said.Ali said Dale Steyn’s presence has strengthened RCB’s bowling attack as the South African express has picked wickets in the first four overs, which helps a team win most of the time, Ali said.”Dale has been a huge impact. We did not take wickets in the powerplays. If you take four wickets in powerplays, most of the time you win matches.He has been a class act. The way he swings the ball is a brave thing to do. Probably that has been the missing factor, which cost us games,” he said.Asked if he needs to bowl more, Ali said as long as the team was winning, these things did not worry him much.”It is a small ground here. I observed in the last match that seamers were hard to score off.I really did not get the window to bowl against KKR when Andre Russel came in. But, as long as you are winning, you really don’t worry too much,” he said.Also Read | Bowling last over vs KKR reminded me of Ben Stokes in 2016 World T20 final: Moeen AliAlso Read | IPL 2019: Kuldeep Yadav breaks down after Moeen Ali onslaught at Eden Gardens
Ah points per drive, my old friend. The best measure of the health of an offense or defense in college football. Did you get stops on defense? Did you score points on offense? That’s all that really matters, right?My usual spot for getting points per drive numbers, the great BCF Toys, has not posted PPD numbers so far this season so I took things into my own hands without OKC Dave’s help (which is usually not a great idea). I charted every drive that wasn’t a kneel down from the first three games to get some numbers for points per drive allowed and scored for Glenn Spencer’s defense and Mike Yurcich’s offense.Some notes:• The BCF Toys PPD throws out garbage time drives … I did not.• I counted defensive TDs which lowered the PPD on both sides (good for OSU defense, bad for OSU offense) … this seems like a fair way to do it. If you get or give up a bunch of pick-sixes, those should count positively for a defense and negatively for an offense.• I counted TDs worth seven and FGs worth three.• I did nothing with special teams so the fumbled punt return by Madre Harper in Week 1 does not show up anywhere. That’s not offense or defense. It’s actually a punt for the offense. Or that’s how I scored it.Here is a look at OSU’s numbers.Defense45 drives faced9 TDs allowed2 FGs allowed26 punts forced1 TD scored (Ramon!)PPD: 1.37PPD vs. FBS opponents: 2.06This 1.37 overall number would rank in the top 15 in the country based on last year’s numbers. Of course you also don’t get to play SE Louisiana once every three games. The FBS-only number would have ranked No. 61 in the country last year.Offense43 drives15 TDs5 FGs16 punts1 TD given up (Mason!)PPD: 2.63PPD vs. FBS opponents: 2.16The overall number would rank around No. 30 in the country based on last year’s numbers. The FBS-only number would have ranked No. 60. So you can see the offense and defense, at least against Power 5 opponents, have been quite similar (and very average) so far.If you want to even be competitive in Big 12 play, that offensive number needs to be north of 2.5. Last year OSU ranked No. 23 in points per drive (2.70) and No. 73 in points per drive on defense (2.24).This is a fairly small sample size, though, that will get more robust as the season wears on.

Inter 1 Crotone 1: Zenga returns to haunt struggling Nerazzurri Rob Lancaster Last updated 1 year ago 05:47 2/4/18 Emilio Andreoli/Getty Images Andrea Barberis scored a second-half equaliser as Crotone fought back to claim a point against an out-of-sorts Inter. Crotone extended Inter’s winless run in Serie A to eight matches as Andrea Barberis’ second-half equaliser secured Walter Zenga’s side a well-deserved 1-1 draw at San Siro.Playing in place of the injured Mauro Icardi, Eder marked his first league start of the season by heading the Nerazzurri ahead in the 23rd minute, albeit visiting defender Davide Faraoni got the final touch on the ball.Yet the out-of-sorts hosts laboured throughout and Crotone deservedly picked up a valuable point in their battle to beat the drop, Barberis reacting quickly to poke a loose ball beyond Samir Handanovic.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The result will be particularly pleasing for Zenga, a legendary name at Inter who is back coaching in his homeland after an unsuccessful spell at English Championship side Wolves.As for his old employers, a fifth successive draw will see Inter retain fourth place in the table, though Roma can close to within a solitary point with victory away at Verona on Sunday.8 – Inter Milan have equalled their longest winless streak in their Serie A history (eight games), recorded on five occasions – the latest in May 2017. Fasting. #InterCrotone — OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) February 3, 2018 After Inter won 2-0 in the previous meeting of the teams last September, they were riding high in the table having picked up maximum points from their first four outings in the campaign.However, a miserable run of form either side of the mid-season break has emphatically ended talk of an unlikely title challenge and instead left Luciano Spalletti’s side looking nervously over their shoulder in the battle to secure Champions League football next season.There was a collective sigh of relief around the San Siro when Eder opened the scoring, the forward converting Marcelo Brozovic’s corner home via a deflection off Faraoni’s head.Inter had to rely on a set-piece opportunity to break the deadlock though, as they struggled in open play during a lethargic first-half display that highlighted the lack of confidence running through the team.Faraoni made amends for his accidental involvement in the opening goal with a crucial clearance to prevent a second after the break, cutting out Antonio Candeva’s low cross as two Inter players waited to apply the finish in the middle.The interception kept Crotone within touching distance, and the visitors grew in confidence with each minute that ticked by during the second half.Their willingness to push extra bodies forward paid off with an equaliser on the hour mark, Marcello Trotta’s attempted pass rebounding off the knee of Borja Valero to set up Barberis, who kept his composure to convert the one-on-one opportunity.Spalletti responded to conceding by summoning Rafinha from the bench, and the Brazilian was denied a late winner on his home debut when his goal-bound shot was acrobatically kept out by a diving Alex Cordaz.Ivan Perisic failed to even hit the target when well-placed to convert Danilo D’Ambrosio’s cut-back pass from the right in the closing stages, while Inter were relieved to see Trotta’s left-footed drive on the angle fizz narrowly wide during an eventful finish to an otherwise tepid contest.| FT Inter 1-1 CrotoneFinal whistle at the Meazza. #InterCrotone pic.twitter.com/P1NUlfCtTw — Inter (@Inter_en) February 3, 2018 read more

APTN National NewsThursday was the 10th anniversary of the Powley case.It all started when a Metis man from Sault Ste Marie, Ont., was charged with hunting moose without a license.At that time the Ontario government refused to recognize Metis even existed in the province.That all changed on Sept. 19, 2003, when the Supreme Court heard the case and forced Ontario to recognize the Metis as a nation with Aboriginal rights, including the right to hunt.Steve Powley, the man behind the case, died less than a year later. He is remembered as a hero to the Metis.Here’s a look back at that historic day.
Sydney: A vast and powerful cyclone made landfall Saturday along a remote stretch of the northern Australian coast, bringing fierce winds and heavy rains amid safety fears for a small number of residents who’ve stayed in the area. A category 4 storm, with 5 being the strongest, Cyclone Trevor crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria coast at 9:50 a.m. local time (2250 GMT) in the far east of the Northern Territory, near its border with Queensland state.

But with the cyclone bringing wind gusts of up to 250 kilometers per hour (155 miles per hour), and with flash flooding expected as heavy rains meet hard-baked lands recently hit by drought, authorities have issued safety warnings for the small number of people who have stayed put. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Northern Territory Emergency Services spokesman Jason Collins said anyone remaining in Trevor’s path needed to have supplies to last at least three days, to take shelter and stay away from waterways. “Turn around, don’t drown. We may not be there to save you,” he said. “Emergency services are stretched.” Those remaining in the area, mostly farm holders, mine workers and local residents who opted not to leave, are believed to number less than a couple of dozen. Moving in a west-southwest direction, Cyclone Trevor was expected to weaken to category 2 by late Saturday. Meanwhile Cyclone Veronica, another category 4 system, was expected to cross the northwest Australian coast late Saturday night, bringing wind gusts of up to 230 kph (143 mph). Residents of Western Australia state’s coastal Pilbara region, which is also only lightly populated, have been warned to take cover. Cyclones are frequent in Australia’s tropical north and rarely claim lives. But two such large storms as Cyclones Trevor and Veronica crossing land on the same weekend is rare.
“However when they were most recently seen by cattery staff and an experienced independent vet, it was felt they had deteriorated significantly, they were struggling to bear their own weight and hold the weight of their heads up to eat, and sadly they were felt to be suffering.”Any previous veterinary assessment does not reflect the findings at the time this sad decision was made, as a marked deterioration had occurred.””Sadly, in view of the worsening condition in these kittens which resulted in them suffering, the vet who examined them made the difficult decision to put them to sleep.”We would like to thank the foster carer for her dedication and support and are sorry we were unable to get hold of her to explain the vet’s sad decision at the time.”The independent vet who put the kittens down for the RSPCA said in a statement: “When I examined the kittens some were doing well but staff were particularly concerned about two, who were constantly falling over, struggled to get up and appeared to be having difficulty eating.“Sadly they were not coping well. Given they had deteriorated and did not appear to have a good quality of life it was felt the kindest decision was to put them to sleep, with the consent of RSPCA staff. The RSPCA said they were following professional veterinary advice and that the condition had deteriorated to the extent that it was causing suffering to the kittens.An RSPCA spokesman said: “The kittens were assessed by an independent vet who found two had a deteriorating neurological condition which the vet felt was causing them to suffer as they were struggling to stand, hold their heads up and eat.”As animal lovers ourselves, we understand how upsetting this has been for the foster carer however we have to follow the expert advice of qualified veterinary surgeons when it comes to welfare.”Our staff would not go against professional veterinary advice when it comes to an animal’s welfare.”While it was initially suspected that the kittens had cerebellar hypoplasia – a condition which makes them unsteady but usually able to lead happy lives – the deterioration that occurred would not generally be expected with this condition.”When two of the kittens first showed symptoms consistent with cerebellar hypoplasia we wholeheartedly hoped they will be able to rehomed, like we have other cats with this condition. “I have been a vet for many years and decisions such as this are never taken lightly, always with a heavy heart but putting the animal’s welfare first.” Lucy Pauley, a veterinary nurse, with one of her other kittens Alvin and mother cat SophieCredit:Caters News/Caters News “The RSPCA is amazing as whole, one of the best charities in the world in fact, but this particular vet played God with two lives, and it’s not acceptable.”We wouldn’t do it to humans, so why are we doing it to innocent kittens?” The RSPCA has been accused of putting down two kittens without informing the woman who fostered them for a “manageable condition” which can cause a wobbly walk.Lucy Pauley, a veterinary nurse, was heartbroken when the two 12-week-old kittens she had temporarily fostered from the charity were put to sleep, as she claims they could have gone on to enjoy happy lives.They suffered from the neurological disorder cerebellar hypoplasia – also known as “wobbly cat syndrome” – which .Ms Pauley had returned kittens Pumba and Diddy to the RSPCA’s Coventry and District branch on August 8, and they were then due to be re-homed by the charity.But the 24-year-old claims they were put down without her knowledge two days later after they fell down a ramp at the cattery due to their condition.She claims it was a rash decision taken by a locum which went against earlier advice of another vet at the branch.”The result of this miscommunication is that two kittens who I had cared for since their birth had been put down due to a condition the RSPCA themselves had originally said was not life-hindering,” she said.”Unfortunately my kittens are gone but I have to move forward and make sure that awareness is raised about this condition, and how they have handled it.

THERE WILL BE no all-party talks in Belfast today on the contentious parades and flags issues but some meetings will take place between various individuals.Former US diplomat Richard Haass, who is mediating the process, has set a recommencement time for the plenary of 6am Monday. There will then be six hours of talks before the deadline for an agreement is hit.He has said that the current differences between the party are “difficult but not intractable”.Talks finished up at 7.15pm yesterday and asked whether this was the final effort in the process, Haass said that the time had come to “fish or cut bait”.Haass and Harvard Professor Meghan O’Sullivan were asked to lead the discussions as the ministerial executive in Northern Ireland want all parties to strike a deal on how and when parades are conducted, as well as when flags are flown.They both returned to Belfast yesterday for the final round of talks. Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness said it would be a “terrible embarrassment” for politicians in Stormont if the pair left without an agreement.‘Time to fish or cut bait’: Haass talks recommence, with Monday set as deadline
Tuesday, June 4, 2019Top afternoon stories:Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Larry E. Reid Jr.An aerial view of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas, Aug. 31, 2017.Disaster Relief Bill Should Finally Bring $4 Billion To TexasThe U.S. House of Representatives passed a $19.1 billion disaster relief bill Monday evening, which President Donald Trump is expected to sign. A key provision of the bill is a White House “shot clock,” implemented by Texas Senator John Cornyn, which would require the Office of Management and Budget to release more than $4 billion in disaster aid owed to Texas within a 90-day window. After Congress approved more than $16 billion in disaster relief funds in early 2018, efforts by Texas representatives to secure the state’s share have been frustrated by bureaucratic hurdles in OMB and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.U.S. Rep. Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, a Houston Democrat, and U.S. Rep. Randy Weber, a Friendswood Republican, recently introduced a bill with similar language to Cornyn’s provision demanding that HUD release the long overdue $4 billion to Houston-area districts still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.John L. Mone/APCardinal Daniel Dinardo.Woman Accuses Cardinal DiNardo Of Dismissing Sex Abuse CaseA Texas woman has accused Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, head of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, of dismissing a sex abuse case that involved a local highly-ranked clergy member.Laura Pontikes’ first report to the archdiocese about Monsignor Frank Rossi drawing her into a relationship that entailed sexual encounters had occurred in April 2016, according to The Associated Press. In December of that year, Pontikes met with DiNardo in Houston to talk to him about the relationship and says the cardinal declared her a “victim” of the priest.Pontikes says she was assured Rossi would never be a pastor or counsel women again, but subsequently found out that DiNardo had allowed the priest to take a new job as pastor in east Texas.The archdiocese acknowledged an inappropriate physical relationship between Rossi and Pontikes, but asserted that it was consensual and didn’t include sexual intercourse. In a written statement to AP, it defended its handling of the case, saying Rossi was immediately placed on leave and went for counseling after Pontikes reported him.Rossi’s alleged sexual relationship with Pontikes is now the subject of a criminal investigation in Houston.AP Photo/James MacPhersonA protest encampment along the route of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota in 2017.Pipeline Protesters Could Face 20 Years In PrisonProtesters could face up to 20 years in prison for interfering with oil and gas pipelines under a new proposal from the Trump Administration.The plan, if approved by Congress, would go beyond a similar crackdown Texas lawmakers approved during the recent state legislative session.It’s already against federal law to damage or destroy certain pipelines or pipeline facilities, namely those that are used in interstate or international commerce. But a proposal to Congress from the U.S. Department of Transportation would also make it illegal to vandalize or disrupt pipelines.The possible 20-year sentence is tougher than the 10 years protesters could soon face under a Texas bill headed to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk.The Trump Administration’s pitch to Congress is part of a much broader proposal aimed at enhancing pipeline safety across the country. Share
Stay on target Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsRobots to Compete in Underground Challenge in Mining Tunnels European scientists have created tiny robots that can be introduced and accepted into insect societies.The lovechild of Ant-Man and Iron Man, these mobile machines are learning to work with insects (specifically, those of the family Formicidae) to eventually control serve humans.“The idea is to be able to solve [a] problem with a better solution than they [the robots and insects] can produce individually,” according to study lead Bertrand Collignon, of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.AdChoices广告Part of the EU-funded CyBioSys project (a component of the Horizon 2020 EU Research and Innovation program), the ongoing research could be combined with other work teaching robots to communicate with animals.The process is fairly simple: A camera mounted inside the nest alerts the androids when a legion of ants are departing—a sure sign that food has been found.Embedded sensors then allow the bots to follow their creepy-crawly companions to the bounty, at which point the machines take over, using their “superior muscle power” to carry the feast back home.By working together, the robots (re-programmed off-the-shelf Thymio bots running on Raspberry Pi computers) and insects play to their respective strengths, creating a so-called “cyber-biological system” (CBS).Boasting an exceptional sense of smell, ants—as anyone who’s ever had an infestation knows—are pretty darn good at sniffing out dinner. But their miniscule bodies often can’t handle the weight of your crumbs, and some (despite an advanced pheromone system) get lost on the return journey.Robots, on the other hand, can carry a crapload more than the scuttling arthropods, in a fraction of the time.“This synergy will save the energy that should be consumed by the robots for constantly exploring the environment and quicken the collection of the food, making the ants more rapidly available for further exploration,” the project objective said.Infiltrating notoriously aggressive colonies—like ants and bees—is not new: A previous EU-funded venture found that small mobile robots could interact with cockroaches and influence their collective behavior.(A frightening glimpse into our future?)Continued work in the field may eventually lead to applications in search and rescue, exploring environments too dangerous or inaccessible for humans. Integrated artificial systems could also usher in new solutions to controlling animal behavior on farms.
Researchers release DEDA to anonymize laser printer tracking dots by Martin Brinkmann on July 03, 2018 in Linux – 9 commentsDEDA is a new tool for Linux that researchers have created to read and decode the forensic information, and to anonymize information to protect against tracking.The Electronic Frontier Foundation discovered in 2008 that nearly all major color laser printer manufacturers added tracking dots to any printed document. The yellow tracking dots were invisible to the eye and apparently added to printouts on request of the U.S. government.The foundation stopped updating the list in 2017 stating that there is strong evidence that all laser printers use some form of tracking. The organization went on to suggest that there was a strong likelihood that printers who did not use yellow dots used a different system that was not yet identified.A team of researchers from TU Dresden in Germany published a research paper that provides deeper knowledge of laser printer printout tracking methods. The researchers discovered a new tracking pattern, managed to decode information, and developed an algorithm to detect and extract data.The researchers confirm the EFF’s initial discover that color printers add “tiny and systematic yellow dots” to printouts. The information usually includes the serial number of the printer and the data of the printout.The information can be read and encoded automatically using the right tools. The tracking data poses a risk to privacy as the information may be used to link the printout to a particular printer.The German researchers found four tracking dot patterns used by laser printers. The research paper provides an analysis of the code and structure for each.DEDAThe researchers released DEDA — tracking Dots Extraction, Decoding and Anonymisation toolkit — which is available for Linux.You can install the tool using the command pip3 install deda. It supports different options:read tracking data from a scanned image: deda_parse_print INPUTFILEfind a divergent printer using several scanned printouts: deda_compare_prints INPUT1 INPUT2 [INPUT3]try to detect unknown patterns: libdeda/extract_yd.py INPUTFILEanonymize a scanned image: deda_clean_document INPUTFILE OUTPUTFILEanonymize a document for printing:save as PS file using pdf2ps: pdf2ps INPUT.PDF OUTPUT.PSprint testpage file: deda_anonmask_create -wscan document and pass lossless file: deda_anonmask_create -r INPUTFILEapply anonymization mask: deda_anonmask_apply mask.json DOCUMENT.PSThe researchers suggest that you analyze the printouts using a microscope if the masked page covers the tracking dots added to printouts by the laser printer.Probably the best course of action is to use inkjet printers whenever possible but if that is not possible, use DEDA to make sure tracking code is not embedded in printouts.Related articlesHP pushes third-party ink blocking printer firmware update (again)Remove the Microsoft XPS Document Writer printerResearchers Find Security Vulnerability In PrintersSummaryArticle NameResearchers release DEDA to anonymize laser printer tracking dotsDescriptionDEDA is a new tool for Linux that researchers have created to read and decode the forensic information, and to anonymize information to protect against tracking.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
