Security Vulnerability in Browser Interface Allows Computer Access via Graphics Card
Security Vulnerability in Browser Interface Allows Computer Access via Graphics Card
Researchers at TU Graz were successful with three different side-channel attacks on graphics cards via the WebGPU browser interface. The attacks were fast enough to succeed during normal surfing behaviour. Modern websites place ever greater demands on the computing power of computers. For this reason, web browsers have also had access to the computing capacities of the graphics card (Graphics Processing Unit or GPU) in addition to the CPU of a computer for a number of years.

From the lab to the road: How TU Graz is making driver assistance systems safer
From the lab to the road: How TU Graz is making driver assistance systems safer
In the Christian Doppler Laboratory under his leadership, Franz Wotawa has developed test and monitoring procedures with company partner AVL that make common driver assistance systems safer. Intelligent Speed Assist, Emergency Brake Assist, Emergency Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Drowsiness Assist, Reversing Assist, Low Concentration Warning System or Emergency Brake Lights - from July 2024, a whole range of safety and driver assistance systems will be mandatory for all new cars in the European Union.

Limits for quantum computers: Perfect clocks are impossible
It is becoming increasingly easier to carry out calculations with quantum computers. However, calculations show that there are fundamental limits - namely the quality of the clock used. There are different ideas about how quantum computers could be built. But they all have one thing in common: you use a quantum physical system - for example individual atoms - and change their state by exposing them to very specific forces for a specific time.

New CPU Vulnerability Makes Virtual Machine Environments Vulnerable
New CPU Vulnerability Makes Virtual Machine Environments Vulnerable
By Falko Schoklitsch Researchers at TU Graz and the Helmholtz Centre for Information Security have identified a security vulnerability that could allow data on virtual machines with AMD processors to fall under the control of attackers. In the area of cloud computing, i.e. on-demand access to IT resources via the internet, so-called trusted execution environments (TEEs) play a major role.

Skin cancer diagnoses using AI are as reliable as those made by medical experts
Artificial intelligence (AI) is already widely used in medical diagnostics. An Austrian-Australian research team led by dermatologist Harald Kittler from MedUni Vienna investigated the extent to which diagnosis and therapy of pigmented skin lesions benefit from it in a realistic clinical scenario. In a study published by The Lancet Digital Health, the team compared the accuracy in diagnosis and therapy recommendation of two different algorithms in smartphone applications with that of doctors.

Internet Security: the Danger of Nameless Cookies
Internet Security: the Danger of Nameless Cookies
Important security holes in modern Internet technology have been discovered by TU Wien (Vienna). Now the international IT community is working to close them. The Internet has undergone major technical changes in recent years, which has also led to new security problems. The IT security team at TU Wien (Vienna) analyzed security vulnerabilities that arise from the interaction of cookies and web frameworks - software packages that are often used today by web programmers to create websites.

Understanding Human Behaviour with AI
By Birgit Baustädter Elisabeth Lex's research combines computer science methods with social science approaches, searching for clues to understand framing, polarisation and opinion clusters. More and more often, people are getting the feeling that society is increasingly polarised - regarding measures introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic, the question of vaccinations, elections, or environmental protection.
