Bank Hackers Steal Millions via Malware
Photo PALO ALTO, Calif. — In late 2013, an A.T.M. in Kiev started dispensing cash at seemingly random times of day. No one had put in a card or touched a button. Cameras showed that the piles of money had been swept up by customers who appeared lucky to be there at the right moment. But when a Russian cybersecurity firm, Kaspersky Lab, was called to Ukraine to investigate, it discovered that the errant machine was the least of the bank’s problems. The bank’s internal computers, used by employees who process daily transfers and conduct bookkeeping, had been penetrated by malware that allowed cybercriminals to record their every move. Then the group impersonated bank officers, not only turning on various cash machines, but also transferring millions of dollars from banks in , , Switzerland, the United States and the Netherlands into dummy accounts set up in other countries.

The Five Biggest Threats to Your Kids’ Privacy, and What You Can Do About Them Remember back in school, when your teachers warned that everything you did would go on your permanent record? It turns out your teachers have become right. That permanent record is the Internet. It’s hard to be a fully functioning adult in 2014 and not leave behind a digital trail. Now imagine how hard it is for your kids, who have never known a world where the net did not exist. From the moment they emerge from the womb, they’re generating data, which is then eagerly absorbed and stored by Internet companies, government agencies and some evil no-goodniks. Despite federal laws prohibiting the collection of data from children under the age of 13, dossiers are constantly being created about your kids, whether it’s Google capturing their search histories, advertisers creating profiles of their interests, or their grandparents tagging photos of them on Facebook.

astrologie védique Découvrez cette présentation magistrale de John Hagelin, ici en compagnie de Charlie Heath grand spécialiste du Jyotish (astrologie védique)! John Hagelin, qui incarne magnifiquement bien cette fusion entre science moderne et science védique, explique notamment comment la nature, la création, l'astrologie, les sciences et arts divinatoires, etc. fonctionnent et comment tout est corrélé avec tout. La pensée et l'action deviennent réellement puissantes, utiles et efficaces quand le "praticien" reste connecté avec la transcendance. "Au commencement était le verbe" et ça continue et c'est la raison pour laquelle tout peut se réparer avec cette "chimie du son" utilisant ces récitations appelées Yagyas en sanskrit. Le programme de Yagya National Maharishi est l'utilisation de cette connaissance ancestrale et de ce pouvoir revivifié et pleinement restauré durant ces dernières décennies, au même titre que d'autres branches de la science védique, par Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

How to Protect Your Computer from Hackers, Spyware and Viruses This article has been inspired by a situation I ran into while visiting a cousin in India. Since I’m in the IT field, she asked me to take a look at her computer since it was acting “funny”. The “funny” part was that the computer would automatically restart whenever you tried to install ANY software onto it or download any program from the Internet. The first thing I noticed was that there was no anti-virus software installed on the computer, so my first goal was to install an anti-virus program and check for viruses. Most of the viruses on the computer were hidden in files that had been downloaded off the Internet: songs, videos, and movies. This is by no means a comprehensive list, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment and I’ll add them on! 1. Avira – Avira has a free version that was ranked #3 in 2014 for detecting viruses. Bitdefender – Bitdefender had the second highest detection rate and they also have a free edition. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

BJFP- Base de données juridique de la fonction publique FTC sees privacy threats in the 'Internet of Things' - Katy Bachman - POLITICO As consumers buy up fitness trackers, Internet-connected thermostats and even Web-enabled cars and toothbrushes, the Federal Trade Commission has a message: It’s watching. The agency is warning that as millions of new smart devices make people’s daily lives more convenient, they’re also collecting reams of personal information that raise new privacy and data security concerns. Story Continued Below The nascent sector — known as the “Internet of Things” and embraced by companies from Google to Intel — is still largely unregulated, and the FTC is hoping a set of recommendations it released Tuesday will goad companies into building consumer data protections into their systems. “The only way for the Internet of Things to reach its full potential for innovation is with the trust of American consumers,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. Not all the commission members are on board with her campaign.

Blog de François Cornut-Gentille Après les tremblements de terre et autres cyclones, la population d’Haïti est confrontée à une grave épidémie de choléra. Selon l’organisation mondiale de la santé et plusieurs experts internationaux, cette épidémie a eu pour foyer infectieux un régiment népalais de casques bleus. Malgré ce constat, le secrétaire général de l’ONU refuse de donner suite aux demandes d’indemnisation des victimes de l’épidémie, suscitant l’incompréhension et la colère des populations locales. Membre permanent du conseil de sécurité, la France ne peut rester indifférente. Dans sa réponse publiée au journal officiel du 26 mars , Laurent Fabius confirme que « la communauté internationale avec l’adoption par le conseil de sécurité des Nations unies de la résolution 2070 le 20 octobre dernier qui mentionne pour la première fois l’épidémie de choléra, a reconnu la gravité du problème. »

Net Threats Experts say liberty online is challenged by nation-state crackdowns, surveillance, and pressures of commercialization of the Internet As Internet experts look to the future of the Web, they have a number of concerns. This is not to say they are pessimistic: The majority of respondents to this 2014 Future of the Internet canvassing say they hope that by 2025 there will not be significant changes for the worse and hindrances to the ways in which people get and share content online today. Still, some express wide levels of concern that this yearning for an open Internet will be challenged by trends that could sharply disrupt the way the Internet works for many users today as a source of largely unfettered content flows. The Net Threats These Experts Fear We call this research study a canvassing because it is not a representative, randomized survey. More than 1,400 people responded to the following yes-or-no question: A share of these experts express new urgency about surveillance. Peter S.

Arianna Huffington Says New York Times Paywall "Isn't Working" Arianna Huffington has made yet another public jab at The New York Times—this time going after the paywall. During a luncheon address at a Gilt Groupe conference in New York, Huffington, according to Women's Wear Daily, said, “The New York Times paywall isn’t working. It is so hedged and has so many exceptions that it should be called a hedge wall, not a paywall.” She added that a site like the Times’ cannot successfully shift from free to paid content. “The truth is, people are used to having that information for free,” she said. Huffington also defended the HuffPo’s practice of not paying its bloggers, claiming that these writers blog as a leisure activity, and comparing it to TV watching.
