    Cybercrooks have put together a new scam that falls halfway between ransomware and old school browser lockup ruses. The new class of “tech support lockers” rely on tricking users into installing either a fake PC optimiser or bogus Adobe Flash update. Once loaded the malware mimicks ransomware and locks users out of their computers. Unlike Locky, CryptoWall and their ilk it doesn’t actually encrypt files on compromised Windows PCs, however. Jérôme Segura, a senior security researcher at Malwarebytes, said “tech support lockers" represent a class of malware more advanced than browser locks and fake anti-virus alerts of the pre-ransomware past....

    Fourteen survivors and victims of the Oklahoma City bombing in April 1995 filed suit against Iraq in federal district court in Washington, D.C., last week, claiming that Iraqi officials gave money and training to Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols. McVeigh was executed last April. Nichols, convicted of manslaughter and given a life sentence in federal court, is awaiting trial in Oklahoma state court, where survivors are determined that he get a death sentence. Nearly a year after McVeigh's execution, the case remains controversial. Families of victims have accused the federal government of shoddy detective work, and some even have claimed...

    NEW ORLEANS – San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII. Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team. "I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here...

    Time magazine called "The Hurt Locker" "a near-perfect war film," but Ryan Gallucci, an Iraq war veteran, had to turn the movie off three times, he says, "or else I would have thrown my remote through the television." Critics adore the film and it has been nominated for nine Oscars -- a feat matched only by "Avatar," the top-grossing movie of all time -- but Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, says that's "nine more Oscar nominations than it deserves. I don't know why critics love this silly, inaccurate film so much," he wrote on his...

    Her senior year was just a month old at Newfield High School in Selden when Tiana Rapp, 17, opened her gym locker and discovered someone had pilfered a whopping $150 from it. Police have arrested a hall monitor, Linda Cubano, and charged her with three counts of petty larceny in connection with the thefts. Rapp said she had reported the missing money to school officials, who suspected a student was responsible. But something didn't add up, she said, because the girls' lockers were patrolled by an adult hall monitor. The criminal struck again a couple of weeks later: That time,...

    Movie Review: The Hurt Locker by: Brandon Friedman Tue Jul 21, 2009 at 08:45:00 AM EDT And now for something not-so-serious. I don't typically write book or movie reviews, but after this weekend, I really felt compelled to. This movie just stuck in my craw. But take heed: This is a review for military people. So if you've never been in the military or never been to Iraq, just stop reading this. Because if you keep reading, I'll probably ruin what could be a pretty good action flick for you. The Hurt Locker is a high-tension, well-made, action movie that...

    A CONVICTED murderer at the centre of Queensland's biggest police corruption scandal in 20 years had a personal locker in the Rockhampton police station. Lee Owen Henderson, a career criminal and discredited police informant, kept an extensive wardrobe of clothes, personal items and a false birth certificate in locker 46. The locker affectionately bore Henderson's nickname "The General", and highlights the close and alleged improper relationship detectives had with him. A damning Crime and Misconduct Commission report released on Wednesday details the special treatment Henderson received in return for information, including trips outside jail. The report has implicated 25 police...

    STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. (NNS) -- Hurricane Kartrina victims at one Navy command here have a place to shop without cost thanks to an outpouring of donations across the naval service. Davy Jones Locker is a volunteer-run store serving Navy and civilian personnel and their family members at Stennis Space Center near the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Now a makeshift store inside the Matthew Fontaine Maury Oceanographic Library, it has a bevy of items, from soup to soap, and from clothing to cat food. The Stennis-based Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command and the Naval Oceanographic Office have 441 employees who lost...
