cyber attacks software
London: To prevent cyber attack software from capturing vulnerable servers, scientists have developed a free defence software that can inhibit the identification of systems by such programmes.

“TCP Stealth is a free software that requires particular system and computer expertise, for example, use of the GNU/Linux operating system. In order to make broader usage possible in the future, the software will need further development,” said scientists from the Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM) in Germany.

Port scanners are programmes that search the internet for systems that exhibit potential vulnerabilities.

According to a report published in Heise Online, Hacienda is one such port scanning programme. The report says that this programme is being put into service by the “Five Eyes” — a federation of the secret services of the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

“The goal is to identify as many servers as possible in other countries that can be remotely controlled,” explained Christian Grothoff, the research group leader at the TUM’s chair for network architectures and services.

The free software is based on the following concept: There exists a number that is only known to the client computer and the server.

How we work

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, which is a form of electronic cash. This is the first decentralized digital currency: the system was designed to work without a central bank or a single administrator. Many economists and investors consider the Bitcoin market to be a bubble. Bitcoin has also been criticized for its use in illegal transactions, its high power consumption, price instability, and theft from exchanges.

What Is Real Cryptocurrency
Bitcoin is made as a reward for the process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products and services. The research produced by Cambridge University estimates that in 2017, there were 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using cryptocurancency wallet, most of which used bittoine. A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets. Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.

Bitcoin, created in 2009, was the first decentralized cryptocurrency. Since then, numerous cryptocurrencies have been created. These are frequently called altcoins, as a blend of bitcoin alternative. Bitcoin and its derivatives use decentralized control as opposed to centralized electronic money/central banking systems . The decentralized control is related to the use of bitcoin's blockchain transaction database in the role of a distributed ledger
