Silicon Valley is going to war against disease, cancer, aging, and perhaps even death, with advanced computing, AI and machine learning, genomics, DNA engineering, biotech and nanotech. Tech giants and mega-rich philanthropists are spending billions to permit hacking biology all the way down to DNA, and perhaps we could see breakthroughs in only a few years.
David Jones, a big Australian fashion retailer, has been hacked. Some private details belonging to its customers have been compromised.
The information includes names of the customers, their email addresses, order details, mailing addresses, and other relevant details except the sensitive credit card details of the customers.
