    The FBI and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency have issued a warning to healthcare IT leaders about the growing threat of Cuba ransomware. The number of U.S. entities targeted by this ransomware has doubled since December 2021 and the tactics used by attackers have become more sophisticated. The advisory notes that Cuba ransomware actors are gaining access to healthcare and other critical infrastructure systems through known software vulnerabilities, phishing campaigns, compromised credentials, and remote desktop protocol tools. Furthermore, these actors are using "double extortion" techniques in which they encrypt victim data, demand a ransom payment to decrypt it, and threaten to publicly release the data if the ransom is not paid.

    Google Research and DeepMind have created MedPaLM, an open-source large language model that can answer medical questions. It combines HealthSearchQA, a new dataset of medical questions, with six existing datasets covering professional medical exams, research, and consumer queries. The model was developed on PaLM (Pathways Learning Model), a 540 billion parameter large language model, and is intended for use by both medical professionals and non-professionals. The developers of MedPaLM are considering using blockchain technology to secure the data input and generated by the model. They hope that the tool will be successfully used in practice with real patients.

    News Corner
    This is an update on the use of OpenAI's chat GPT technology, which is a deep learning tool that produces human-like text based on a given prompt. The technology has been well-received, attracting over a million users within five days of its release. It has a wide range of capabilities, including the ability to write software code and formulate responses to prompts. In the healthcare industry, chat GPT can potentially be used to streamline communications and train personnel, as well as to retrieve information about drugs, symptoms, and clinical trials when integrated with layers of medical validation. Currently, there is no component of blockchain being used in chat GPT, but the technology has the potential to change society's expectations and may be improved and used in new applications in the future. The fact that it was made available to the public for free is a step towards fair distribution of technology. The host of the show invites listeners to share their experiences with chat GPT and ideas for its use in the Health Unchained Telegram channel.

    Crypto.com, Algorand, Budverse, and other crypto companies are sponsoring the World Cup 2022. Be weary of crypto companies sponsoring popular sporting events and stadiums. As an example, FTX’s sponsorship with the Miami arena (among many other sponsorships) initially brought credibility to the now-fallen exchange. Let’s not take these other crypto sponsorships as validation that they are trustworthy, safe, or sustainable. Maybe they are, but as many in the industry will tell you, not your keys, not your coins. If you have any crypto on centralized exchanges, just be careful and consider moving to a hardware wallet.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mass_shootings_in_the_United_States_in_2022
    https://apnews.com/article/health-dallas-shootings-588b62b3e2420075247482b2e31c1b14
    According to a Wikipedia list, as of October 25, 2022, there have been 582 mass shootings, with 604 individuals killed (including the shooters). A total of 2380 people have been wounded (including the shooters). This year has been a record year for mass shootings in America and it does not seem to be getting any better. Although many attribute shooter motive to serious mental illness, studies have shown personal issues such as a combination of acute life stressors, anger, and nihilism contribute to a shooter’s motive. Gun policies and the criminal justice system, in general, are also factors that play a part in the probability of mass shootings. 
    Although this news corner doesn’t have anything to do with blockchain technology, it has everything to do with social stability, security, and human nature. It’s unlikely that we’ll ever end all violence in our world, but we should be addressing and studying some of the root causes of violence by educating children about the importance of community safety, gun safety, and human morality. Open Public policy and local education regarding gun control can be tools to help mitigate future tragedies and increase trust in our communities.
