What to see and do in Armenia

Asia is on the rise as a popular summer vacation destination, and Europe has been a perennial favorite for over a century, but the region in between has been unduly neglected by travelers. Occupying a unique cultural space that isn’t quite European or Asian, the countries of the South Caucasus have flown under many travelers’ radars — particularly Armenia, one of the most picturesque and diverse places in the world. If you want your next vacation to be truly unique, you should start brushing ...

New DNS Hijacking Attacks

DNS hijacking isn't new, but this seems to be an attack of uprecidented scale: Researchers at Cisco's Talos security division on Wednesday revealed that a hacker group it's calling Sea Turtle carried out a broad campaign of espionage via DNS hijacking, hitting 40 different organizations. In the process, they went so far as to compromise multiple country-code top-level domains -- the suffixes like .co.uk or .ru that end a foreign web address -- putting all the traffic of every domain in multiple...

Cyberspies Hijacked the Internet Domains of Entire Countries

Their alarm was heard: FireEye quickly came out with new intelligence warning of a “global” domain name hijacking campaign targeting websites of predominantly Arab governments. The campaign, dubbed “DNSpionage,” rerouted users from a legitimate web address to a malicious server to steal passwords. H...

Digital Georgian.

Monica Ellena reported for Eurasianet (a couple years ago, but I just saw it) on the problems faced by minor alphabets in the digital age: Dato Dolidze’s fingers move slowly on the old handset as he writes a text message to his son. “My phone only has the Latin alphabet, so every time I text I need to translate the Georgian letters into the Latin.

Constantine Orbelian Fired As General Director Of Armenia’s National Opera House

The Armenian-American maestro, a three-time Grammy nominee (he conducted Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s final album, Russia Cast Adrift), was named artistic director of the theater in Yerevan in 2016 and was given the additional job of general director the following year.

PicsArt hits 130 million MAUs as Chinese flock to its photo editing app

If you’re like me, who isn’t big on social media, you’d think that the image filters that come inside most apps will do the job. But for many others, especially the younger crowd, making their photos stand out is a huge deal. The demand is big enough that PicsArt, a rival to filtering companies VSCO and Snapseed, recently hit 130 million monthly active users worldwide, roughly a year after it amassed 100 million MAUs. Like VSCO, PicsArt now offers video overlays though images are still its fo...
