Many techniques and mechanisms exist today, some COTS, others less mature research products that can be used to deflect, detect, or even recover from specific types of cyber attacks. None of them individually is sufficient to provide an all around defense for a mission critical distributed system. A mission critical system must operate despite sustained(More)
The same network infrastructure that is essential for the operation of today's high valued distributed systems can also be misused by malicious attackers. Experience shows that implementing absolute security or preventing cyber attacks completely is infeasible when systems must be highly interconnected and comprise of COTS components with unknown security(More)
The emergence of the global threat of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis reveals weaknesses in tuberculosis management and diagnostic services. We report the draft genome sequence of the first extensively drug-resistant Myco-bacterium tuberculosis strain isolated in Malaysia. The sequence was also compared against a reference strain(More)
The outbreak of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) has become an increasing problem in many TB-burdened countries. The underlying drug resistance mechanisms, including the genetic variation favored by selective pressure in the resistant population, are partially understood. Recently, the first case of XDR-TB was reported in Malaysia. However,(More)
We report the first case of an immunocompromised adult patient presenting with cervicofacial lymphadenitis due to Mycobacterium haemophilum, confirmed using hsp65 gene sequencing and line-probe assays. In resource-limited settings, especially in developing countries, appropriate culture methods and rapid molecular diagnostic tools such as hsp65 gene(More)
