The Chinese government appears to be abiding by its September pledge to stop supporting the hacking of American trade secrets to help companies there compete, private US security executives and government advisors said on Monday.
FireEye Inc, the US network security company best known for fighting sophisticated Chinese hacking, said in a report released late Monday that breaches attributed to China-based groups had plunged by 90 percent in the past two years. The most dramatic drop came during last summer's run-up to the bilateral agreement, it added.
FireEye's Mandiant unit in 2013 famously blamed a specific unit of China's Peoples Liberation Army for a major campaign of economic espionage.
Kevin Mandia, the Mandiant founder who took over last week as FireEye chief executive, said in an ...
Scientists have combined 3D printed polymers with methane-eating bacteria to create the first reactor that can produce methanol from the greenhouse gas, an advance that may lead to a more efficient energy production.
The researchers removed enzymes from methanotrophs, bacteria that eat methane, and mixed them with polymers that they printed or molded into innovative reactors.
"Remarkably, the enzymes retain up to 100 percent activity in the polymer," said Sarah Baker, from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the US.
"The printed enzyme-embedded polymer is highly flexible for future development and should be useful in a wide range of applications, especially those involving gas-liquid reactions," Baker said.
Advances in oil and gas extraction techniques have made vast new stores ...

It could have been mistaken for any other late afternoon in the expectant days before graduation. Seniors shuttled four years of possessions from the Kappa Alpha fraternity into waiting U-Hauls that would carry them away from Stanford for the last time.
But the students weren't talking just about commencement, or summer, or jobs ahead. Their conversations this week, like so many on this elite campus these days, kept turning to sexual assault.
It was inescapable on their phones and laptops, what happened just a few hundred feet away and its lingering impact: A woman left one of their parties drunk, passed out behind a dumpster and was attacked by a Stanford swimmer.
"We're horrified that this happened here," said Dominick Francks, 22, a Kappa Alpha brother majoring in atmosphere/energy ...
A pro-ISIS hacker group has placed nearly 8,000 Americans on its longest 'kill list' that also includes names of Canadians, Australians and Europeans, a British media report said today.
The pro-ISIS United Cyber Caliphate hacker group released a list of 8,318 people, including their addresses and email contact details, on a secretive messaging app service.
It urged its supporters to "follow" those listed - and "kill them strongly to take revenge for Muslims", Daily Mirror reported.
It is one of the longest kill lists any ISIS-affiliated group has distributed to date and reportedly includes the names of 7,848 Americans, 312 Canadians, 39 Britons and 69 Australians.
The rest of the targets listed are reported to be from a variety of nations including Belgium, Brazil, China, Estonia, Fran...
BJP lawmaker Subramanian Swamy today launched another attack on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, saying he had planted "a time bomb" in the Indian financial system that will explode in December.
Mr Swamy, who had written twice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking that Dr Rajan be dropped for keeping interest rate high, took to Twitter to criticise the RBI Governor.
He did not specify further. The 'f.e' in the tweet apparently refers to foreign exchange.
There was no immediate response to the query sent to RBI spokesperson Alpana Killawala in this regard.
On May 26, Mr Swamy had levelled six allegations against Dr Rajan and asked the Prime Minister to sack him immediately.
He had also claimed that Dr Rajan was "mentally not fully Indian" and alleged that he has "wilfully wrecked the econ...
Facebook on Monday announced that it is getting into the e-Sports game, jumping into the field of video games as spectator sports against Amazon-owned Twitch and Google's YouTube Gaming.
Later this month, people will be able to use Facebook accounts to log in to Blizzard Entertainment computer games such as "World of Warcraft."
The move will pave the way for Blizzard game fans to use the leading social network's Live video service to broadcast play in real time, the companies said in a joint release.
California-based Blizzard, owned by video game publisher Activision, is in the process of creating a "Go Live" feature that would let players stream on-screen action to Facebook timelines, according to the companies.
Blizzard games in line for the Facebook streaming capability included freshl...
