CNN uses screenshot from ‘Fallout 4’ to show how Russians hack things


 The thing about computer hacking is that it’s such a general, far-reaching term that it’s almost impossible to explain to someone who isn’t already familiar with it. So, news networks who need b-roll footage to show while they’re talking about hacking usually just show keyboards or random strings of letters and numbers, while the audience stares blindly at the screen, assuming that whatever they’re looking at is somehow related to the topic. Or, if you’re CNN, you steal footage from one of the most popular video games of the year and hope that nobody watching will recognize it.

Donald Trump: 'I know a lot about hacking'

President-elect Donald Trump says he is knowledgeable in the field of cyber-hacking and "no computer is safe" when it comes to keeping information private.
Trump's statement to reporters during his annual New Year's Eve bash expressed new scepticism about the security of online methods of communication his administration is set to use.
"You know, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way ... because I'll tell you what: no computer is safe," Trump said.
The billionaire businessman has repeatedly cast aside allegations by US intelligence agencies that Russia tried to influence the presidential election through hacking.
President Barack Obama ordered sanctions on Russian spy agencies last week, closed two Russian compounds, and expelled 35 diplomats the US alleged were really spies. The Russian government has denied the allegations.

Naval Soldier Who Refused To Stand For National Anthem Learns Her Fate

           Taking a page from football player Colin Kaepernick’s agenda, a former Navy intelligence specialist has been stripped of her security clearance for refusing to stand for the national anthem during morning colors. According to reports, Janaye Ervin was assigned to menial labor for a few days before being let go.
In mid-September, Ervin refused to stand for the anthem while on duty at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii. Ervin was trying to make a statement about the persecution of blacks in America.
“I just didn’t want to stand at that moment,” Ervin said. “I can’t stand for this song knowing that the song isn’t for me, being black. The song doesn’t represent me at all. To be honest, I never really thought about the flag my entire life, I had no reason to. It’s just a flag.”
The next day, Ervin was read her rights and given a warning about compromising her security clearance. Of course, that clearance was essential for both her civilian and military jobs. Within 24 hours of the incident, she was stripped of her clearance and escorted out.
Though Ervin claimed she did not know what order has been violating, though it has been the 10th general order for centuries. You memorize 11 general orders and a violation of any one of them is subject to Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and is subject to whatever punishment is decided by an assigned court-martial.
In an attempt to play the victim, Ervin posted to Facebook, “The Navy has decided to punish me for defending the Constitution and has taken away my equipment I need to do my Naval job.”

The 11 General Orders are as follows:
  • Take charge of this post and all government property in view
  • Walk the post in a military manner, always keeping alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing
  • Report all violations of orders I am instructed to enforce
  • Repeat all calls from posts more distant from the guardhouse than my own
  • Quit the post only when properly relieved
  • Receive, obey and pass on to the sentry who relieves me all orders from the commanding officer, officer of the day and non-commissioned officers of the guard only
  • Talk to no one except in the line of duty
  • Give the alarm in case of fire or disorder
  • Call the corporal of the guard in any case not covered by instructions
  • Salute all officers and all colors and standards not cased
  • Be especially watchful at night, and during the time for challenging, to challenge all persons on or near my post and to allow no one to pass without proper authority.
Recruits must commit these military security rules to memory.

Net neutrality regulations under threat by Trump's new FCC appointments

 Protesters march past the FCC headquarters before a Commission meeting on a net neutrality proposal on May 15 in Washington, DC. Legislation that assures equal access to high-performance internet – one of the signature achievements of Obama’s administration – could be reversed under President-elect Trump after he appointed two opponents of “net neutrality” to the US communications regulator team.
Jeffrey Eisenach and Mark Jamison have been vocal in their opposition to the policy of net neutrality, which prevents large internet companies from creating fast lanes for high-paying customers. They are both associated with the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative thinktank based in Washington DC which has previously campaigned against net neutrality.
While Trump himself hasn’t said a lot about net neutrality, Eisenach testified before the judiciary committee of the US Senate in 2014, saying the policy used government regulation to unnecessarily advantage small companies and had little to do with protecting consumers.

“Net neutrality regulation cannot be justified on grounds of enhancing consumer welfare or protecting the public interest,” he said. “The potential costs of net neutrality regulation are both sweeping and severe, and extend far beyond a simple transfer of wealth from one group to another. Legitimate policy concerns about the potential use of market power to disadvantage rivals or harm consumers can best be addressed through existing antitrust and consumer protection laws and regulations.”
Mark Jamison took the argument one step further. In an October 2016 opinion piece for Tech Policy Daily, he asked provocatively whether or not the FCC is needed any more.

Trump calls for drug test before debate

Donald Trump took aim at the war on drugs on Saturday — by challenging Hillary Clinton to take a drug test.
"Athletes, they make them take a drug test," Trump said at a Portsmouth, New Hampshire, rally. "We should take a drug test prior to the debate because I don't know what's going on with her. But at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning. And at the end … she could barely reach her car."
"I'm willing to do it," he added.
Clinton is not campaigning this weekend in order to prepare for the third and final debate Wednesday, an aide told NBC News.
Trump tweeted before the New Hampshire rally that he would speak about "the massive drug problem there, and all over the country." The state is in the midst of a drug overdose crisis propelled by the heroin epidemic.

After slamming the latest Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks as proof that "the media collaborates and conspires directly with the Clinton campaign," Trump turned his attention to heroin and other drugs "that are poisoning our youth."

Clown Sightings List: Which States Have Reported Threatening Clowns?

Creepy, threatening clown sightings have been increasing over the last couple months, leading residents of affected states to wonder just what’s going on. Earlier on Friday, some schools in Reading, Ohio were closed after a woman reported being attacked by someone dressed as a clown who threatened the students at her school. But the complaints extend far beyond Ohio. At least 37 states have had strange clown sightings so far, and the number keeps on growing.
Some clown sightings just hoaxes or jokes, and some may have been copycats from earlier news reports. For example, a report of a clown in Agawam, Massachusetts ended up being part of a promotion for the New England Scare Fest. And a report about a clown shot and killed in Indiana was apparently a hoax. (Read more about that in the Indiana section below.) But not all incidents are explained that easily, and a number of arrests have already been made. Some of the social media threats to different schools have caused parents a lot of concerns. And some of these threats, even though they’re sent to different states, are coming from accounts using the same fake clown names.
The affected states so far are Alabama, Arizona,  Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Hackers Infect Army of Cameras, DVRs for Massive Internet Attacks

Hacking shows vulnerability of internet devices, security experts say 



Attackers used an army of hijacked security cameras and video recorders to launch several massive internet attacks last week, prompting fresh concern about the vulnerability of millions of “smart” devices​in homes and businesses connected to the internet.
The assaults raised eyebrows among security experts both for their size and for the machines that made them happen. The attackers used as many as one million Chinese-made security cameras, digital video recorders and other infected devices to generate webpage requests and data that knocked their targets offline, security experts said.
Those affected include French web hosting provider OVH and U.S. security researcher Brian Krebs, whose website was disabled temporarily.
“We need to address this as a clear and present threat not just to censorship but to critical infrastructure,” Mr. Krebs said.
Closely held OVH confirmed the attack, but declined to comment further.
