    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A company that performs background checks for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said on Wednesday it was the victim of a cyber attack, adding in a statement that "it has all the markings of a state-sponsored attack."

DHS has suspended all work with the company amid an investigation by the FBI, the Post reported. A U.S. government official confirmed to Reuters that the FBI is...

    More than two years after her upstart Senate campaign rocked the Delaware political world, Christine O'Donnell got an unexpected contact from a U.S. Treasury Department agent warning that her private tax records may have been breached. The phone message earlier this year shocked the battled-scarred candidate, a tea party favorite who knocked off Republican mainstay Michael Castle in the primary before losing in a bid to win Vice President Joseph R.

    The Indiana attorney general’s office confirmed Monday it is investigating a security breach in which Social Security numbers and other personal information were posted online for roughly 44,000 low-income Americans who applied for a federal program that provides discount Internet and phone service. The program was nicknamed the “Obamaphone” during the 2012 election, though it actually started long before President Obama took office. Indiana reportedly has the highest number of applicants, roughly 17,400, who were signed up by TerraCom Inc. and the affiliated YourTel America Inc. Applicants from at least 26 states were exposed to the security breach,

    “It’s good to be king!” is an oft-quoted line from Mel Brooks’ “History of the World, Part I.” In America, every man is supposed to be king, every woman queen, and members of Congress are supposed to be our servants. We sometimes forget that last part. Three people in Orlando have not. On Aug. 15, Charles Klein, Sally Baptiste and Theresa Kajkowski filed a lawsuit in Florida's Middle District Federal Court. Nothing unusual in that -- lawsuits are filed every day, especially in litigation-prone America. What’s unusual is that the plaintiffs name the entire membership of the U.S. House and...

    Palestinian youths on Friday hurled stones at Israeli security forces near the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem and tried to breach a barrier to gain entry to the area, which has been sealed off amid concerns over violence. Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen on Friday discussed the increased police presence in the area saying, "The deployment of police and extra security forces in Jerusalem at this hour is in line with the situation." Police forces managed to prevent the youths from breaching the Ras el-Amoud checkpoint near East Jerusalem, and one Palestinian was arrested after he assaulted a police officer.

The passenger failed to stop about 7:45 a.m. at the McNamara Terminal, the Transportation Security Administration said. The man was arrested by airport police and was being questioned, airport spokesman Mike Conway said. "The Transportation Security Administration asked him to stop and he didn't comply," Conway said.

    The Department of Homeland Security has initiated unspecified personnel actions against individuals involved in the bungled online posting this spring of a government document that revealed airport screening secrets, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told senators Wednesday morning. A contract employee was responsible for failing to properly redact a 93-page Transportation Security Administration operating manual onto a government procurement Web site, allowing computer users to recover blacked-out information by copying and pasting them into other documents, Napolitano said. TSA supervisors were also involved, Napolitano said. "The security of the traveling public has never been put at risk," Napolitano assured the...

How can we be so sure? Government policy mandates the creation, editing and publication of classified reports on systems cleared for that type of information. Typically, a "confidential" report would be produced on a SECRET-level system, and published on an intranet cleared for that level of data. In the Department of Defense, the intranet for SECRET information is called SIPRNET. Other government agencies also have access to SIPRNET, or utilize...

The images were removed by Berger Devine Yaeger Inc. shortly after the company was contacted by the State Department.

    When the history of personal privacy is written--and there are persons who monitor this sort of thing--they will call this "The Year of the Stolen Laptop." The number of incidents has been astounding, topped by the theft of a laptop computer last May from the residence of a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs staff person; the computer contained millions of names, birth dates and Social Security numbers. Law enforcement officers actually recovered the stolen laptop and arrested two suspects, and they have found no evidence that the data inside was used to compromise anybody's privacy. But up to 26 million...

    The US state of Georgia has allowed a remote attacker to access a database containing the details of 570,000 members of the state’s pension scheme. The cause of the breach has been blamed on an unpatched flaw in one of the state’s security programs, although the supplier of the software has not been disclosed. The attacker is said to have breached the system towards the end of February, using a variety of hacking tools to access the server hosting the database. Georgia said it was in the process of fixing the security flaw in the system, before the hacker got...

    NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Rita's wind and rain breached two of New Orleans' battered levees Friday and sent water gushing into already-devastated neighborhoods just days after they had been pumped dry. In the impoverished Ninth Ward, water streamed through gaps at least 100 feet wide in a levee and was soon waist-deep on a nearby street. It began covering buckled homes, piles of rubble and mud-caked cars that Katrina had swamped with up to 20 feet of water nearly a month ago. Officials with the Army Corps of Engineers said other levees appeared secure, including those breached during Katrina, but...

    In their rush to collect cash from taxpayers, school districts around the state have been using Proposition 39 to ram through bonds with an easily attainable 55% vote. While replacing the traditional two-thirds vote for bonds that are repaid exclusively by property owners, Prop. 39 also compelled the districts to establish a citizen oversight committee to monitor spending of bond proceeds. Unfortunately, the bond committees were added to the package as a public relations ploy designed to make bond passage easier, while giving the oversight committees no real power. Now that Prop. 39 has been in effect for nearly five...

    The European Commission has warned Germany that it could face the imposition of radical restrictions on its domestic fiscal policymaking as early as next year if it looks set to exceed the stability pact's deficit limit in 2004. "If Germany breaches the stability pact's 3 per cent ceiling next year, we will present [the] ecofin [group of ministers] with a new recommendation. It is our duty," said Pedro Solbes, the European Unions's monetary affairs commissioner in an interview with FT Deutschland. Mr Solbes' warning puts greater pressure on the German government to bring its fiscal system under control. Mr Solbes...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush is likely this week to declare Iraq in "material breach" of a U.N. Security Council resolution on disarmament, but is not expected to cite it as an immediate case for war, U.S. officials said early on Wednesday. Bush's national security advisers are to meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation after concluding that Iraq's declaration of its weapons of mass destruction required by the resolution falls short of the U.N. demand that it list all of its weapons, a senior administration official said. "The president at some point has to decide on material breach," one...

The United States has said that Iraqi fire on its jets over the "no fly" zones may constitute a breach of this month's U.N. resolution 1441, under which Iraq must cooperate with the inspections or face the threat of war. Other...
