Yes, machine learning can help in the area  different prediction. It can much impact in the area of software engineering.

The usages of mobile application have increased rapidly in recent days. It is also becoming more popular in recent business applications where multiple users are connected through a mobile application to complete the business circle. In this aspect, the demand of quality mobile application is increasing. Usability is the main quality factor for enhancing the quality of application. For this reason, the usability improvement is getting more priority for this kind of application. So, discovering the experiences of the users can lead to improving the usability of mobile application. For this, we introduce Fuzzy Association Rule algorithm (FAR) based on fuzzy association rule mining to discover the experience from the mobile application's users. To validate our approach, we consider a supply change management system where multiple users are linked through the mobile application. In this paper, we examine twelve usability factors that are extracted from ten usability evaluation models to improve the usability. After conducting our experiment, we get knowledge from the users of the mobile application that can be used for the improvement of usability. We get several experiment outcomes and knowledge that can be implemented in practices.

In order to play a larger role in software engineering tools static analysis techniques must take into account the specific needs of this application area in particular in terms of interaction with the user and scalability. This new perspective requires a reexamination of the held of static program analysis both internally and in connection with related areas like theorem proving and debugging.

Experimental software engineering is a part of software engineering that focuses on the experiment of software engineering related to the concept, gathering evidence on the specific domain in software engineering through out the experiment. Sometimes, it is called experimental software engineering. Empirical software engineering emphasizes the use of empirical studies of all kinds to accumulate knowledge. Methods used include experiments, case studies, surveys, and using whatever data is available.

Magne Jørgensen is the man who introduced this area and together with Tore Dyba and Barbara Kitchenham, he has launched a method for systematic review of empiric experiences in the development of ICT projects, called Evidence-based software engineering.

History & Latest Cyber crime / A brief history of internet security
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:10:24 PM »

The 1970s was a timeframe in information security history largely untouched by digital calamity, but marked more so by the exploration of emerging telecommunications technology. The first modern day hackers appeared as they attempted to circumvent the system and make free phone calls, a practice that became known as "phreaking." Perhaps the most publicly well know phreaker was John Draper, a.k.a. Captain Crunch, who helped pioneer the practice. Draper was later arrested and convicted on charges related to his nefarious phreaking activities multiple times.


The 1980s saw the birth of computer clubs. This decade subsequently ushered in the era of malware, marking the first virus, named "Brain", in 1986 as well as the infamous Morris Worm in 1988., The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act was instituted in 1986 and for the first time, a computer hacker, Kevin Poulsen, was featured on America's Most Wanted. Poulsen was finally arrested in 1991, after spending several years as a fugitive. Since his release from prison, however, he has reinvented himself as a journalist and at one point, regularly wrote for the online computer security news portal SecurityFocus, which was purchased by Symantec in 2002.


The 1990's brought with it the dawn of the modern information security industry. Notable threats witnessed during this decade included the Michelangelo virus, Melissa, and Concept. Distributed denial of service attacks and the bots that made them possible were also born, such as Trin00, Tribal Flood network and Stacheldracht.

Beyond malware, AOL suffered through the first real phishing attacks as fraudsters aimed their efforts at stealing users' credentials. Privacy watchdogs called out in concern as tracking cookies were born, allowing ad networks to monitor user surfing behaviors in a rudimentary fashion.


The first decade of the 21st Century saw malicious Internet activity turn into a major criminal enterprise aimed at monetary gain. Adware and spyware entered the scene with such programs as Conducent TimeSink, Aureate/Radiate and Comet Cursor.

History & Latest Cyber crime / Credit Cards Under Attack
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:07:39 PM »
As we moved into the new millennium things changed radically as cyber-attacks became more targeted, most notably with the first serial data breach of credit card numbers. Between 2005 and 2007, Albert Gonzalez masterminded a criminal ring that stole information from at least 45.7 million payment cards used by customers of US retailer TJX, which owns TJ Maxx, and UK outlet TK Maxx. This was a massive compromise of security on a scale which was previously unheard of and underlined the huge impact that such breaches can have, reportedly costing the company some $256 million.

This is where things became more serious. The data involved in these breaches was regulated and therefore incidents required the notification of authorities and for funds to be set aside to compensate victims. Companies found out the hard way the dire consequences of being unprotected and began to arm themselves with more sophisticated security systems specifically designed to cope with this new reality.

History & Latest Cyber crime / The First Viruses (1990s)
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:06:13 PM »
From here on viruses went, well, viral and dominated the headlines. The Melissa and ILOVEYOU viruses infected tens of millions of PCs, causing email systems around the globe to fail, all with little strategic objective or clear financial motivation. These threats led to the development of antivirus technology in order to spot the signature of the virus and prevent it from executing. Equally as important, these threats also played a huge role in driving the awareness of computer users of the risks of reading emails from untrusted sources and opening their attachments. This realization was not lost on companies, as it became clear that if viruses were to spread from corporate email accounts, questions about the security and integrity of the company could be brought into the public eye.

History & Latest Cyber crime / The First Computer Worm
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:05:13 PM »
In 1989, Robert Morris created what is now widely acknowledged as the first computer worm. This self-propagating virus spread so aggressively and rapidly that it succeeded in closing down much of the internet. While other subsequent attacks have gained far more notoriety, the Morris worm was a landmark incident in that it was the first widespread instance of a denial-of-service (DoS) attack. Due to the infancy of the internet at the time, the impact was nowhere near as devastating as it would be today. However, it laid the groundwork for the kinds of security issues that we've seen ever since.

The Morris worm and the early nuisance attacks that followed were early instances of having to deal with, and respond to, cyber-security attacks. They ultimately led to the security industry as we know it – including the establishment of CERTs (Computer Emergency Response Teams) as a central point for co-ordinating responses to these kinds of emergencies. The initial reaction from the industry followed the old adage ‘prevention is better than a cure’, giving rise to what has become a litany of preventative and detective security products.


The issue of computer security first arose in the 1970s as individuals began to break into telephone systems. As technology advanced, computer systems became targets as well. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) made one of its first arrests related to computer hacking in the early 1980s. A group of hackers known as the 414s, named after their area code in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were indicted for attacking 60 different computer systems including the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Computer security breaches like these became increasingly commonplace throughout the 1980s, prompting the passage of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The new legislation allowed more stringent punishments to be levied against individuals caught illegally abusing computer systems. Later in the decade, a 25-year-old hacker named Kevin Mitnick began tapping into the e-mail system used by computer security managers at both Digital Equipment Corp. and MCI Communications Corp. As a result, Mitnick was arrested and sentenced to one year in jail. Although a multitude of other hackers were brought to justice, many continued to operate, including one who successfully pilfered $70 million from the First National Bank of Chicago. Eventually, the Computer Emergency Response Team was established by the U.S. government to research the increasing number of computer security breaches.

Along with growth in hacking activity came the spread of computer viruses. Three of the most well known viruses—Cascade, Friday the 13th, and Stoned—all originated in 1987. When computer companies like IBM Corp. and Symantec Corp. began researching ways to detect and remove viruses from computers, as well as ways to prevent infection in the first place, virus writers began developing more elusive viruses. By 1991, more than 1,000 viruses had been discovered by computer security experts.

Computer security gaps were exposed at many major corporations and governmental bodies—including AT&T Corp., Griffith Air Force Base, NASA, and the Korean Atomic Research Institute—during the early 1990s. For example, an attack on AT&T's network caused the firm's long-distance service to temporarily shut down. During 1995, computers at the U.S. Department of Defense were attacked roughly 250,000 times. A study conducted by the Computer Security Institute that year determined that one in every five Web sites had been hacked. Also that year, Mitnick was arrested for computer fraud and once again sentenced to serve jail time. His offense that time included stealing software, product plans, and data from Motorola Inc., Sun Microsystems Inc., NEC Corp., and Novell Inc., costing the firms a combined total of nearly $80 million. Later in the 1990s, the Web sites of several federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Air Force, NASA, and the CIA, were defaced by hackers. In addition, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics received a deluge of bogus requests for information. In 1998, the U.S. Department of Justice created the National Infrastructure Protection Center, charging it with task of safeguarding domestic technology, telecommunications, and transportation systems from hackers.

As the amount of commerce handled via the Internet grew, so did the number of malicious attacks. Hacking in 2000 increased 79 percent over 1999 figures, according to a report released by the FBI's Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT). Even leading Web sites such as Yahoo!, America Online, eBay, and were exposed as vulnerable, costing the firms millions of dollars and undermining the already tenuous confidence online shoppers had in the security levels of these sites. Eventually, one of the key perpetrators in many of these attacks, a 16-year-old Canadian boy operating under the name Mafiaboy, was arrested, and authorities discovered he also had broken into the computer networks at Harvard and Yale Universities. While on parole, Mafia-boy was prohibited from using the Internet or shopping at stores that sold computers; only when supervised by a teacher at school, could he use a computer.

History & Latest Cyber crime / Going global: worldwide attacks
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:00:11 PM »
When the mid-1990s hit, viruses went international as the first Microsoft Word-based virus using macro commands spread all over the world. In 1998, hackers took control of more than 500 government, military, and private computer systems with the “Solar Sunrise” attacks. Two years later, other hackers were able to crash Amazon, Yahoo and eBay’s websites. In 2001, the Code Red worm ended up causing $2 billion in damage by infecting Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000 server software. The large-scale attacks continued into 2006, when anywhere from 469,000 to one million computers were infected with the Nyxem virus.

History & Latest Cyber crime / The rise of worms and viruses
« on: July 09, 2015, 08:58:07 PM »
By 1979, computer threats took on another form. In that year, the researchers created the first computer worm. Originally intended to help computers, the bug was modified by hackers so it would destroy and alter data. Just a few years later, computer viruses were created. By 1988, damage became widespread as a worm disabled around 6,000 computers connected to the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network. And by 1990, the first self-modifying viruses were created.

One of the first recorded computer security threats actually didn’t come from a human. In 1945, Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper found a moth among the relays of a Navy computer and called it a “bug.” From this, the term “debugging” was born. It wasn’t until the 1960s that humans started exploiting networks. From 1964 to 1970, AT&T caught hundreds of people obtaining free phone calls through the use of tone-producing “blue boxes.” Later in the 1970s, John Draper found another way to make free phone calls by using a blue box and plastic toy whistle that came in Cap’n Crunch cereal boxes. The two items combined to replicate a tone unlocking AT&T’s phone network.
