The glitch was reported on deals website Hotukdeals with customers sharing screengrabs of their orders.

One customer said they placed an order for £60 while only paying postage, while another shopper said they ordered £85 worth of clothes.

Separately, one person said the glitch worked on orders up to £200, although another customer said they ordered £214 worth of goods.

But some shoppers were quick to shame other people for taking advantage of the deal when the retail industry is struggling.

The pandemic pushed businesses out of their offices, sending employees to work from home (WFH), and opening up hacking opportunities for cyber criminals. A new report from the industrial cybersecurity company Claroty details how US  IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) security professionals see their organization’s more of a target since early March, when the US pandemic shut down industry. The security pros have also witnessed adversaries hatching new tactics as they target what they perceive as vulnerabilities.

Claroty’s report, “The Critical Convergence of IT and OT Security in a Global Crisis,” revealed that 60% of respondents believe their CISO demonstrated good leadership in the midst of a crisis, but also found that 86% said their organization’s leadership made cybersecurity a priority during

The coronavirus pandemic has radically altered the way we work, and companies of all sizes are experimenting with new ways to manage their far-flung virtual organizations. According to experts, remote work is here to stay and even when the health crisis ends, a good portion of the workforce will remain working from home. The challenge is how to keep employees connected, drive innovation and collaboration, and keep a steady talent pipeline when people are geographically dispersed.

Companies are prototyping new HR models to keep up with this rapid pace of change. Some are embracing artificial intelligence and automation to keep operations on an even keel, gather data-driven insights about their employees, improve the talent search and manage global risk.

It’s a daunting task and it’s happening at a time when business leaders are already wrestling with economic shutdowns, health-care concerns, an upcoming

Britain reported a surge in daily COVID-19 cases to a record 22,961 on Sunday after authorities admitted a technical issue had meant that over 15,000 test results had not been transferred into computer systems on time, including for contact tracers. The technical problem, which was identified on Friday and has now been resolved, led to 15,841 cases not being uploaded into reporting dashboards used by the NHS contact-tracing system.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock is due to give a statement in the Commons later today to explain the blunder amid reports the missing results exceeded the maximum file size.

Political commentator Andrew Neil described the new as a “government shambles”.

News of the glitch was likely to cast further doubt over the robustness of the national test-and-trace system, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson said would be “world-beating” but which has experienced a series of delays and setbacks.

Medical imaging has played an important role in the healthcare industry. The prevalence of various chronic conditions among patients has augmented the need for advanced diagnostics, paving the way for computer-aided detection services for debilitating conditions such as cancers. Due to its precise technology, computer-aided detection services are able to detect anomalies in the fledgling stages, allowing patients to undergo timely treatment and prevent further complications. Technological enhancements in the form of nanomaterials, big data analytics and 3D/4D imaging have largely simplified the entire computer-aided detection process, producing highly accurate results.

However, the onset of COVID-19 has dented growth prospects of the market. Imposition of nationwide lockdowns has generated a reduction in the number of hospital visits for preventive care, leading to a dip in medical imaging services for the

“While Wikipedia’s content has grown rapidly, our interface has not kept pace,” wrote Olga Vasileva, a project manager at the Wikimedia Foundation, in a blog post announcing the changes.

“The design of desktop Wikipedia [has]… not seen any substantive changes for the past 10 years, leaving certain elements of the site’s navigation feeling clunky and overwhelming,” Vasileva said.

Since launching in 2001, the online encyclopedia has published more than 50 million articles and is available in nearly 300 languages. The entries are created, edited and updated by volunteers, and the website is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit organization.

The site states that its “main purpose is to create, learn, and curate content,”
