This paper describes an experimental approach to determine the correlation between port scans and attacks. Discussions in the security community often state that port scans should be considered as precursors to an attack. However, very few studies have been conducted to quantify the validity of this hypothesis. In this paper, attack data were collected(More)
This paper analyzes malicious activity collected from a test-bed, consisting of two target computers dedicated solely to the purpose of being attacked, over a 109 day time period. We separated port scans, ICMP scans, and vulnerability scans from the malicious activity. In the remaining attack data, over 78% (i.e., 3,677 attacks) targeted port 445, which was(More)
BACKGROUND Adult hippocampal neurogenesis has been implicated in the mechanism of antidepressant action, and neurotrophic factors can mediate the neurogenic changes underlying these effects. The neurotrophic factor neuregulin-1 (NRG1) is involved in many aspects of brain development, from cell fate determination to neuronal maturation. However, nothing is(More)
Patients with hemochromatosis require regular surveillance of liver and cardiac iron concentration with liver and cardiac MRI. However, cardiac MRI includes a part of the liver in the field of view. The purpose of this retrospective and prospective study is to determine if liver T2* measured on cardiac MRI may be used as a surrogate for T2* obtained on(More)
PURPOSE Metallic artifacts can result in an artificial thickening of the coronary stent wall which can significantly impair computed tomography (CT) imaging in patients with coronary stents. The objective of this study is to assess in vivo visualization of coronary stent wall and lumen with an edge-enhancing CT reconstruction kernel, as compared to a(More)
