The FBI says you may need to pay up if hackers infect your computer with ransomware

Submitted by: Mr Jimmy Pop @ 07:24 PM | Monday, October 26, 2015 | (url: http://www.busine...)

If a hacker hijacks your computer with malware and holds your data for ransom, its probably best to just pay up, at least thats the latest advice the FBI is giving out concerning ransomware.

Reported last week by Security Ledger, Joseph Bonavolonta, the Assistant Special Agent who oversees the FBIs CYBER and Counterintelligence Program in Boston, spoke at the 2015 Cyber Security Summit and advised that companies infected with ransomware may want to give in to the criminals demands.

The ransomware is that good, Bonavolonta explained to an audience of business and technology leaders during the Q&A. To be honest, we often advise people just to pay the ransom.

Ransomware is a malicious software that takes over a victims hard drive when they click on an infected advertisement, email, attachment, or website and encrypts the contents of a device and any other connected electronics which the hacker then demands bitcoin or cryptocurrency payments to unlock.

The key to unencrypt data can cost victims anywhere from $200 and $10,000 and affects individuals and businesses alike. Even the police are not immune to the attacks. Cryptowall alone currently the most prevalent malicious software used made hackers over $18 million from April 2014 to June 2015.

The amount of money made by these criminals is enormous and thats because the overwhelming majority of institutions just pay the ransom, Bonavolonta said. Adding that the Bureau and others efforts have yet to yield a solution.

A spokesperson from the Boston Bureau told Business Insider that while the FBI doesn't make recommendations for what businesses should do if they fall vicitm, "instead, the Bureau explains what the options are for businesses that are affected and how its up to individual companies to decide for themselves the best way to proceed. That is, either revert to back up systems, contact a security professional, or pay."

N.F.L. Upholds Tom Bradys Ban

Submitted by: Mr Jimmy Pop @ 09:32 PM | Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | (url: http://www.nytime...)

N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Tuesday after finding that he had destroyed potential evidence about his role in the deflation of game balls to gain competitive advantage in the A.F.C. championship matchup in January.

The league said in a 20-page statement that its decision was based mainly on Bradys asking an assistant to destroy a cellphone that he had used before, during and after the week of the game. The league said the phones destruction, eliminating what league investigators believe were 10,000 texts, came to light in Bradys testimony to the commissioner at an appeal hearing in June, months after league-appointed investigators requested text messages and emails.

get ready for a better world map

Submitted by: Goshin @ 10:06 AM | Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | (url:

LOL! dude! maps are gonna start looking like this in google and stuff

Sentinel-2a is the European equivalent of America's Landsat mission, which has been imaging the surface of the Earth for 40 years.

The US satellite's data is free and open, which has driven a multitude of applications. Most people will probably know it best from the map tools they use on their computers and smartphones. These all incorporate Landsat pictures.

Sentinel's data has been designed to be complementary, but the platform also represents a big jump in capability.

Its imaging instrument will be sensitive across more bands of light (13 versus Landsat's eight), allowing it to discern more information about the land beneath it; and Sentinel-2a will "carpet map" a much wider strip of ground (290km versus 185km).

In addition, its colour images have a best resolution of 10m, versus Landsat's 30m.

Esa will launch Sentinel-3a at the end of 2015. This satellite is dedicated to observing the oceans.

Herpes drug might help control spread of HIV, too

Submitted by: Mr Jimmy Pop @ 06:04 PM | Monday, July 20, 2015 | (url: http://www.hawaii...)

(HealthDay News) -- A widely used herpes drug also seems to help people with the HIV virus, even if those people don't also have herpes, a new small study found.

The researchers said their findings challenge the belief that drug Valtrex (valacyclovir) requires the presence of herpes to benefit people with HIV-1. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.

The study included 18 HIV patients in Peru. When patients took Valtrex twice daily for two weeks, they had decreases in HIV-1 levels. Patients taking a placebo saw their HIV levels go up.

Experts thought that Valtrex worked against HIV by reducing inflammation caused by the herpes virus. This would give the HIV virus fewer active immune cells to attack, reducing the spread of the virus. But the drug doesn't depend on reducing inflammation to work against HIV, said study co-senior author Dr. Michael Lederman, a professor of medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland.

This means that Valtrex can be used in a broader range of people with HIV-1, and also suggests promising new directions for creating new HIV drugs, the researchers said.

That's especially important because some forms of HIV-1 have become resistant to existing drugs.

"The drug might be an agent that can be used safely in some people with HIV infection who have a form of HIV that is highly resistant to other antiretroviral drugs," Lederman said in a university news release.

"Valacyclovir might well augment the cocktail of medications they take for reducing HIV replication. Valacyclovir is a well-tolerated drug, and it doesn't have a lot of side effects," he added.

The findings were published online in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Why We Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Submitted by: Mr Jimmy Pop @ 11:58 AM | Sunday, July 19, 2015 | (url: http://www.king-r...)

[b]Each year a fundamental question arises. Young people especially want to know, "Why do we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? The following is a brief analysis which can be duplicated and shared with schools, churches, organizations and the media.[b]

In 1776, the American Colonies declared their freedom from Great Britain. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote that "all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." That is, Jefferson declared that all citizens have the rights to be free from oppression and have equal opportunities in pursuing their goals. These ideals have been called the American Dream.

Efforts to give black people their rights never stopped, but the changes were not enough. After World War II, many more people felt that new laws were needed. In 1954, the Supreme Court ruled that blacks and whites could go to the same schools, saying that "separate but equal" schools were inherently unequal. However, many people still did not want to change. It took a strong leader, a person who believed in peace and justice, to win more freedom for black Americans. Martin Luther King, Jr. was that man.

Between 1955 and 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. helped change America. He brought to the world's attention how unfairly blacks were treated. He had the help of millions of Americans, but his strong leadership and unprecedented power of speech gave people the faith and courage to keep working peacefully even when others did not. This led to new laws that ended the practice of keeping people of different backgrounds apart, making life fairer for everyone.

The Teeth of the Tiger: Japan's forces have been unfurled

Submitted by: ZooL @ 09:54 PM | Thursday, July 16, 2015 | (url: http://www.nytime...)

TOKYO Defying broad public opposition and large demonstrations, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe won a crucial vote in Parliament on Thursday for legislation that would give Japans military limited powers to fight in foreign conflicts for the first time since World War II.

Mr. Abes party and its allies in the lower house of Parliament approved the package of 11 security-related bills after opposition lawmakers walked out in protest and as demonstrators chanted noisily outside, despite a gathering typhoon. The upper chamber, which Mr. Abes coalition also controls, is all but certain to endorse the legislation as well.

And finally these lazy bastards will get involved instead of acting like a bunch of pre isengard ents playing with their lower limbs

Greece Capitulates to Deutschland as its starving population beg for more welfare mon

Submitted by: ZooL @ 07:16 AM | Monday, July 13, 2015 | (url:

Greece reached a desperately-needed bailout deal with the eurozone on Monday after marathon overnight talks, in a historic agreement to prevent the country crashing out of the European single currency.

Leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras agreed to tough reforms after 17 hours of gruelling negotiations in return for a three-year bailout worth up to 86 billion euros ($96 billion), Greece's third rescue programme in five years.

"EuroSummit has unanimously reached agreement," EU President Donald Tusk said. "All ready to go for ESM (eurozone bailout fund the European Stability Mechanism) programme for Greece with serious reforms and financial support."

The new rescue for Athens is the country's third since 2010 and came after a bitter six-month struggle following Tsipras's election in January that put Greece's membership of the eurozone in the balance.

Greek banks have been closed for nearly two weeks and there were fears they were about to run dry due to a lack of extra funding by the European Central Bank, meaning Athens would have had to print its own currency and effectively leave the single currency.

"Grexit has gone," European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told AFP, ruling out the threat of Greece leaving the single currency, which could potentially destablise not only the euro but the world economy.

Tsipras insisted the deal was good for Greece despite the fact that the harsh terms were near identical to those rejected by Greeks in a referendum just one week ago.

"We fought a righteous battle to the end," a smiling Tsipras said as he left the talks, adding that despite the deal's harshness the "great majority of Greek people will support this effort."

Asian markets rose on news of the debt deal, after a torrid few weeks while traders waited for an accord.

Wallingford police called after Nazi, Confederate merchandise found at flea market...

Submitted by: ZooL @ 07:58 PM | Sunday, July 12, 2015 | (url:

WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) Over the weekend, Wallingford police were dispatched after someone called them to say there was a merchant selling Nazi and Confederate memorabilia at flea market, which some had found deeply offensive. The police chief says no one was arrested because no laws were broken; the items were being sold on private property.

Its not clear if the items that were being sold were authentic, but theyre easy to find in Connecticut. Military Specialties, Inc. in Newington sells a variety of historical military objects, including those produced by the Third Reich and Confederate reproductions.

Its here and youre likely to see it, said co-owner William Moore. If you want, well talk to you about it and give you the history about it.

Moore says he supports the caller who dialed up police and is sympathetic to what they felt. As a dealer of commodities with a controversial past, he can see both sides.

This is America, you can buy and sell whatever you care to, said Moore.

Police say the mayors office is looking into a complaint made over the incident.
