TV Shows In 4K Now Available For Torrenting
A general loophole has been exposed that allows torrenting sites to circumvent copy protection from Amazon and Netflix. It appears that TrollUHD has been able to crack the encryption protocols under the 4K streaming video services' high-bandwidth digital content.
People have been complaining about the lack of good quality 4K videos for streaming. Much like in the land down under -- Australia -- having poor Internet connections, streaming ultra-high-definition videos like Netflix has never really been a possibility. Ultra-HD does look great, but this technology has been a year away for the country ever since 4K television started hitting the stores.
But with every despair, there is always hope. A torrent release group was able to crack encryption codes on Amazon and Netflix ultra-HD videos. Presently, 4K rip-offs from brand new television series are flooding torrenting sites all over the Internet.
According to Torrentfreak, TrollUHD has been releasing shows from Netflix like "Jessica Jones and The Man In The High Castle" from Amazon in just less than a week. Each episode of the released series has massive file size, which scales about 10 gigabytes to 15 gigabytes per one-hour episode. Also, ultra-HD movies like "Looper" was not able to escape the hack.
It appears that a hole within the audiovisual security of the high-bandwidth digital content has been exploited by TrollUHD, rather than a hole on Amazon or Netflix. The 4k leaks from both Internet streaming media have a general loophole that allows pirates to sidestep copy protection.
Despite being an extremely high-quality video running at 32.5 megabytes per second for a 24-frame per second footage, 4K rip-offs are drawing complaints. People say that Marvel's "Jessica Jones" is particularly disappointing as they say that the brains behind Netflix are not that good, according to Torrentfreak.
It could possibly be the inferior security layer on new 4K streaming devices are to blame for the piracy. However, Roku 4 and Amazon Fire TV, which use the HDCP1.4b protocol that was released in November, have not made an announcement with regard to firmware and security updates for their newly released 4K video streaming devices.

Embracing Bioinformatics in Gene Banks
The preservation of plant biodiversity is the task of the roughly 1,750 gene banks that are distributed around the world. So far, they store plant samples, and sometimes additional phenotypic or genetic information, of around 7,4 million accessions of plant species in total. It is expected that with the facilitated access to improved, quicker and cheaper sequencing and other omics technologies, the number of well-characterized accessions and the amount of detailed information that needs to be stored along with the biological material will be growing rapidly and continuously.
