    Forbes ^ | 9/30/18 | Thomas Brewster
    It finally happened. The feds forced an Apple iPhone X owner to unlock their device with their face. A child abuse investigation unearthed by Forbes includes the first known case in which law enforcement used Apple Face ID facial recognition technology to open a suspect's iPhone. That's by any police agency anywhere in the world, not just in America. It happened on August 10, when the FBI searched the house of 28-year-old Grant Michalski, a Columbus, Ohio, resident who would later that month be charged with receiving and possessing child pornography. With a search warrant in hand, a federal investigator...
  • Problem when FreeRepublic.com password changed

    I changed my password. When I entered by new password for logging in, it rejected it. What happened is that my password was too long, and it truncated when I changed. But it did not warn me. I use a 'robot' for passwords, so I can have 'long passwords'. I figured out how the password was truncated (the length it needed to be). When I truncated the password, the new password worked. It is my opinion that the 'focus' software should have warned me that the password was too long.

    SEATTLE - An African-American woman says Puget Sound Energy emailed her a racial slur to use as the temporary password to her online account. Erica Conway believes the insult was deliberate and wants the company to get to the bottom of it. “I clicked “forgot password” and got a temporary password from PSE and it was capitol N-I-G-G-A and I was quite shocked.” “It was like an emotional roller coaster. Shock, disbelief, disgusted, angry. It was just yeah, even now I'm just kind of like I cannot believe this. I just can't believe it.” Conway is a longtime volunteer of...

    WASHINGTON — The email landed in John Podesta’s crowded inbox around March 19, 2016, during the height of the presidential primaries, and it appeared to be a standard security request from Google for Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman to change his password. Doing so ultimately led to a political firestorm that is still raging. The email was actually from Aleksey Lukashev, a senior lieutenant in Russian military intelligence, using the account “john356gh” to mask his purpose, U.S. officials say. The email contained an embedded link that secretly opened Podesta’s account to a hacking team at 20 Komsomolskiy Prospekt, near Moscow’s Red...

Mid Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries claimed the behaviour was standard practice around Parliament despite being a breach of IT security rules.

    There is a major probe going on into the breach of Congressional computer security, surrounding three Pakistani brothers who served as IT staff for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Oh, you haven’t heard about this in the media? The three brothers were locked out of U.S. House computer networks as part of the probe, but now we’re learning that one of the staffers allegedly had the user name and password for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s iPad, and by extension had access to her DNC emails. If you recall, Wasserman-Schultz was the Chair of the Democratic National Committee whose...

  • WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 Password Is A Nod to Anti-CIA JFK Quote

    Conservative Tribune ^ | 3-8-17 | None given
    On Tuesday WikiLeaks began releasing a series of encrypted documents dubbed “Vault 7,” detailing the surveillance activities of the CIA. As part of the release, the organization posted to Twitter a password for “Vault 7” that read as follows: “SplinterItIntoAThousandPiecesAndScatterItIntoTheWinds.” That password was a subset of words spoken by President John F. Kennedy 54 years ago, only a month before he was assassinated: “I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind,” were his exact words, according to a Kennedy administration official who spoke with The New York Times for a report published three...

    No One Cared About Hacking until We found Out How Corrupt Liberals Are By S. Noble - January 6, 2017 US major government and military organizations are hacked all the time by endless numbers of foreign and domestic actors. Nothing was done to fix our cybersecurity. But let a privates organization like the DNC get hacked or careless John Podesta’s emails get hacked and all hell breaks loose. John Podesta left his smart phone in a cab, he fell for a phishing incident and his password was ‘passwŘrd”. Hillary put our state secrets on a personal server she kept in...

    A Clinton campaign aide says that a typo in a March 19 email sent to John Podesta is to blame for opening the campaign chairman’s Gmail account up to Russian cyber hackers. The IT aide, Charles Delavan, tells The New York Times that his error — typing the word “legitimate” instead of “illegitimate” to describe a hacker’s email — continues to haunt him. “This is a legitimate email,” Delavan wrote to Clinton campaign aide Sara Latham after she forwarded him an spear phishing email designed to look like official correspondence from Google. “John needs to change his password immediately,” Delavan...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- New evidence appears to show how hackers earlier this year stole more than 50,000 emails of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, an audacious electronic attack blamed on Russia's government and one that has resulted in embarrassing political disclosures about Democrats in the final weeks before the U.S. presidential election. The hackers sent John Podesta an official-looking email on Saturday, March 19, that appeared to come from Google. It warned that someone in Ukraine had obtained Podesta's personal Gmail password and tried unsuccessfully to log in, and it directed him to a website where he should "change your password...

    The Russians didn’t hack into Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, as others have reported, according to a very reliable source of mine who has connections with US intelligence agencies. They didn’t have to. Clinton was so careless when using her BlackBerry that the Russians stole her password. All Russian President Vladimir Putin’s gang had to do was log into Clinton’s account and read whatever they wanted. They had to be laughing their butts off. So you can add the Russians to the list of people who know bad and personal things about Clinton that the Democrats will wish remain hidden....

    'Idiotic' doesn't even come close to describing this Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts were hacked over the weekend. The breach apparently happened after the Facebook boss’s login details were exposed via the recent LinkedIn password dump. This implies Zuckerberg reused passwords across multiple sites or perhaps that the format of the password he chose for other sites was guessable after breaking his LinkedIn login credentials. Zuckerberg’s Facebook account was not affected. A previously unknown prankster hacking group called Ourmine boasted about the alleged hacks, The hackers claimed that they found his password – dadada – in the LinkedIn dump....

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The Justice Department moved to cancel a Tuesday hearing over whether Apple should be forced to help investigators break into an iPhone used by a gunman in last year’s San Bernardino, Calif., mass shooting, saying it might no longer need Apple’s assistance to extract data from the device. In a new court filing on Monday, Justice Department lawyers wrote that as of Sunday, an outside party had demonstrated a way for the F.B.I. to possibly unlock the phone used by Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the San Bernardino gunmen. “Testing is required to determine whether it is...

    Having trouble coming up with the perfect password for Facebook or Windows 10? You are not alone since many people will resort to easily memorable passwords like “password” or “12345678” so they will not be forgotten. Unfortunately, such easy passwords are also simple to hack, and thus, they are completely insecure. In a related report by the Inquisitr, Bill Gates has long predicted the death of the password, and so, the Windows 10 password system incorporated new technology in order to give conventional passwords a shove off the proverbial cliff.

"Nonetheless, we are taking additional measures to ensure that your data remains secure." LastPass stores multiple passwords for users' various online logins and uses one master password to access them. Users most in danger of being personally hacked as a result of the breach, first detected Friday, are those...

Green, 14, who was released the day of his arrest, said that he broke into the computer of teacher he didn’t like after realizing that faculty members’ passwords were simply their last names, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Green, who previously faced a three-day suspension for a similar prank, said that many students got in trouble for breaking into teachers’ computers.
