HC stays interim licence granted to internet firm to broadcast Saregama, T-Series music 14.2.2018 General News
The Delhi High Court has put on hold the interim licence granted by the copyright office to an internet broadcasting firm to communicate online the sound recordings of music labels Saregama and T-Series. Justice Vibhu Bakhru stayed the licence granted by the Deputy Registrar of Copyrights on April 10 last year on Saregama and T-Series' pleas challenging the decision on the ground that the Registrar of Copyrights lacked the jurisdiction to pass such orders. Saregama, represented by advocate Saikrishna Rajagopal, claimed that only the Appellate Board under the Copyright Act has the power to issue an interim licence. The central government also told the court that the Registrar of Copyright does not have the power to issue the interim license. "This Court is, prima facie, of the view that such directions had to be complied in accordance with law and thus, if the Registrar of Copyrights did not have the power to issue a statutory licence, no such license could be granted. "In view of the .

Reverse engineering key to cybersecurity 25.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Opinion
In December 2017, a new variant of the trojan malware DNSChanger, which targets routers, was identified. A malware that was prolific in the last decade, the DNSChanger had been dismantled by an FBI takedown in 2012. Typically disseminated via malvertising, DNSChanger uses steganography to obfuscate its initial actions. Once infected, the routers DNS (domain name service) records are modified to redirect it to a malicious server. When software from the malicious server attacks a system, it cannot be trusted anymore because it is now an impostor, yet to be detected and therefore unpredictable in its behaviour. In such cybersecurity crises, one possible defence strategy is to disassemble the malicious software and analyse its characteristics and workings in detail, a process referred to as reverse engineering (RE). Reverse engineering is superior to other methods of protection, in that it does not only detect or remove the malware, it is also a tool of risk assessment. Malware could be reverse engineered to ...
