Turla’s watering hole campaign: an updated Firefox Extension abusing Instagram

Some of the tactics used in APT attacks die hard. A good example is provided by Turla’s watering hole campaigns. This group, which has been targeting governments, government officials and diplomats for years, is still using watering hole techniques to redirect potentially interesting victims to their C&C infrastructure. In fact, they have been using them since at least 2014 with very few variations in their modus operandi.

Discover the best of UK science at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition

Discover the best of UK science at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition

4th – 9th July 2017

 Hold a beating robotic heart in your hands; immerse yourself in the world of glow-in-the-dark sea creatures; meet the unsung engineering heroes keeping our infrastructure safe and find out how dinosaurs are helping British police forces fight crime.

The Royal Society is highlighting the UK’s scientific ingenuity and creativity by bringing together some of the country’s best and brightest researchers under one roof. Visit Carlton House Terrace (SW1Y 5AG) for six days of free science fun for all ages at the Summer Science Exhibition, Tuesday 4 to Sunday 9 July 2017. 22 exhibits offer visitors the chance to get hands on with cutting-edge technology and quiz the scientists behind them.

Synchronise your heartbeat to a robotic heart, and find out how scientists are using technology to combat heart disease. Make your own ultra-dirt repellent smart surfaces – which could one day be used in hospitals, reducing the need for antibiotics to fight infection.

Visitors curious about why our voices sound the way they do, will be able to see a real-time MRI scan of a larynx in movement; find out how dinosaurs are helping police forces fight crime and grab a selfie with T-rex; and sport enthusiasts can delve into the engineering behind the success of Team GB’s gold-medal haul in cycling, whilst having a go at breaking a world record.

Space fans can experience a pair of HoloLens and dive into virtual reality to explore Mars and design a spacecraft; or meet one of the teams behind a major scientific discovery of 2016 – gravitational waves.

Nature lovers will be able to make hooked tools from plant materials and extract plastic grubs and insects from wooden logs just like brainy birds that use tools made of twigs; and explore the world of glow in the dark corals and sea creatures which are helping to light up human cells for medical imaging.

On Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July Little House of Science offers a programme full of science activities for younger children. Older children can learn the skills needed to survive a Zombie apocalypse and investigate the science of how superheroes’ superpowers might work; and bookworms can listen to a talk on history’s rebellious scientists by author Dan Green, whose book Rebel Science was shortlisted for the Royal Society Young Person’s book prize in 2016.

You can also stay late on Tuesday evening to drop some science beats with Geek songstress Helen Arney; meet well-known past fellows of the Royal Society as history is brought to life; put your questions to a literature panel with science authors including Gaia Vince, Mark Miodownik, and Lucy Green; or draw out your pencils to sketch artefacts from the Society’s archives in an artist guided workshop.

The special Twilight Summer Science evening is back again this year on Monday 3rd July (6-10pm). Pick your poison from a selection of themed cocktails and dance the night away on the Turing Dancefloor – try to work out the difference between an AI playlist vs a human DJ; and discover how 3D printing is revolutionising biomaterials in medicine by heading to the materials tent for a glimpse into the new materials that will shape the future. Adults-only, entry is free and open to everyone over-18.

Save the date: Journalists are invited to preview the exhibition the morning of Monday 3rd July. Please RSVP to the Royal Society press office (
