Software AG, one of the largest software companies in the world, has suffered a ransomware attack over the last weekend, and the company has not yet fully recovered from the incident.

A ransomware gang going by the name of “Clop” has breached the company’s internal network on Saturday, October 3, encrypted files, and asked for more than $20 million to provide the decryption key.

Earlier today, after negotiations failed, the Clop gang published screenshots of the company’s data on a website the hackers operate on the dark web (a so-called leak site).

The screenshots show employee passport and ID scans, employee emails, financial documents, and directories from the company’s internal network.

The company said that services to customers, including its cloud-based services,

Ford new CEO Farley eyes software, tech stack as differentiator vs. rivals

New Ford CEO Jim Farley’s plan for the automaker includes a heavy dose of software and services for its commercial vehicle business as well as new consumer experiences to drive loyalty.

Ford, which is in the middle of a turnaround of its core business, is trying to navigate a shift to electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles as well as an industry that is increasingly more about software. Farley takes over for Jim Hackett, who streamlined the automaker over the last three years. 

Farley outlined a series of leadership changes and a plan that includes “expanding its commercial vehicle business with a suite of software services that drive loyalty and recurring revenue streams” and “unleashing technology and software in ways that set Ford apart from competitors.”

In addition, Ford is looking to develop connected vehicles and create new businesses from the Argo AI self-driving system.

Black tech organizations grow amid calls for racial justice

Amazon applied science manager Dr. Nashlie Sephus has lived in New York City, Atlanta, Silicon Valley, and Seoul while pursuing her education and work in machine learning. She knows the look of a community that’s thriving from technology and innovation, but she didn’t see that growth happening in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. That’s why last week she concluded an 18-month process by signing contracts to secure 12 acres of land that will be home to the Jackson Tech District.

The Bean Path, a nonprofit organization created by Sephus, will operate a maker and innovation space on the land. There will also be restaurants and residential lofts spread across eight buildings, all located near the historically Black Jackson State University.

The Bean Path’s expansion in Jackson, a city with one of the highest African-American populations per capita of any city in the U.S., is the latest example of a Black

Tech Market Madness: Embedded Programming Languages

Tech Market Madness: Analyst Insights for Engineers, is a new article series from Embedded Computing Design’s Technology Editor, Perry Cohen, where analysts from around the industry provide their insight on various embedded spaces.

 

C has been a stable of embedded systems programming for more than a generation. But today, a new breed of developer is being trained in high schools and universities around the world, and they’re not using C. They’re using Python, JavaScript, Node.js, and Rust. So where does that leave the embedded language landscape?

Citing his company’s annual “Voice of the IoT Engineer” report, a survey of more than 800 IoT and embedded systems engineering professionals, Chris Rommel, executive vice president of technology market intelligence and consulting firm VDC Research, may have an answer. Reviewing historical data from the report, which has been running for 20 years, he relayed that while more than 50 percent of developers

The 10 best tech stocks to buy for 2020.

The 2010s, among other things, were characterized by the rapid rise of “Big Tech,” which brought Wall Street its first trillion-dollar empires. Entering 2020, the five most valuable companies traded on U.S. exchanges were all tech stocks. The specter of antitrust regulation is real, but the idea that regulation will bring Silicon Valley to its knees is a fantasy. In another 10 years, technology will play an even larger role in everyday life and markets than it does today, so investors may as well come along for the ride. Without further ado, here are 10 of the best tech stocks to buy for 2020 – and how those picks have fared in a market marred by volatility.
