    03/16/2017 12:47:41 AM PDT · by Peter ODonnell · 15 replies
    The top story on the news in Canada today is either the blizzard in Quebec or this story about the arrest of four men in several countries, one of whom is a 22-year-old computer whiz and recent graduate living in Canada (near Hamilton, Ontario) and originally from Kazakhstan. Basically, the story is that he was hacking into e-mail accounts as an extension of the big Yahoo breach, and was in the pay of the Russian security service FSB. He was arrested and extradited to the U.S.A. on Wednesday. This link will provide more details. Other than the fact that I...

    The Justice Department is set to announce Wednesday the indictments of two Russian spies and two criminal hackers in connection with the heist of 500 million Yahoo user accounts in 2014, marking the first U.S. criminal cyber charges ever against Russian government officials. The indictments target two members of the Russian intelligence agency FSB, and two hackers hired by the Russians. The charges include hacking, wire fraud, trade secret theft and economic espionage, according to officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the charges have not yet been announced. The indictments are part of the largest hacking case...
  • Yahoo to be named Altaba, Mayer to leave board after Verizon deal

    Yahoo Inc. said Monday that it would rename itself Altaba Inc. and Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer would step down from the board after the closing of its deal with Verizon Communications Inc. Yahoo has a deal to sell its core internet business, which includes its digital advertising, email and media assets, to Verizon for $4.83 billion. The terms of that deal could be amended — or the transaction may even be called off — after Yahoo last year disclosed two separate data breaches; one involving some 500 million customer accounts and the second involving over a billion. …

    A social media administrator at Yahoo Finance needs a copy editor — badly. The news site's Twitter account shared an inconspicuous news story Thursday evening about President-elect Donald Trump wanting to expand the U.S. navy — but a misplaced "n" in the tweet's caption turned the whole thing on its head in a disastrous manner.

    They're warning Yahoo "subscribers." Subscribers are cautioned to change passwords, etc. Could someone explain what that means? What's the benefit of having a Yahoo account? Does that mean that someone uses a Yahoo home page to log onto sensitive personal data?

    Ivanka Trump recently appeared alongside her father, President-elect Donald J. Trump, and surrounding family members in their first postelection interview, in New York City. The 35-year-old businesswoman wore a nude short-sleeved dress and opted for gold accessories, including a $10,800, 18K yellow gold diamond bangle from her eponymous jewelry line. Soon after the interview it was revealed that one of the fashion maven’s employees sent an email to journalists offering style details on the expensive bangle. Seeing as Trump’s eldest daughter is heavily scrutinized by the press and media alike, for the conflict of interest that lies in promoting her...

    Yahoo.com holds the key to determining just how severely Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton may have violated national-security laws with emails that Huma forwarded to herself at humamabedin@yahoo.com, which ended up on a laptop owned by her husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The FBI has the legal authority to force Yahoo to disclose whether IPs belonging to third parties, including foreign third parties, had access to read in real time – and in non-redacted form – emails that Abedin forwarded to humamabedin@yahoo.com that ended up on Wiener’s laptop.

    European privacy watchdogs warned WhatsApp on Friday over sharing user information with parent company Facebook, and cautioned Yahoo over a 2014 data breach and scanning of customer emails for U.S. intelligence purposes. The popular messaging service's recent change in privacy policy to start sharing users' phone numbers with Facebook - the first policy change since WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook in 2014 - has attracted regulatory scrutiny in Europe. The Italian antitrust watchdog on Friday also announced a separate probe into whether WhatsApp obliged users to agree to sharing personal data with Facebook. (emphasis mine) The European Union's 28 data...

    Yahoo! News ^ | October 14, 2016 | Hunter Walker, National Correspondent
    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump plans to fight fire with fire, as he sees it, in the last 25 days of his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton. Facing a barrage of separate sexual assault allegations, Trump has responded by waging an intense war against the media, the “power structure” and the Clintons. In a pair of interviews with Yahoo News, a high-level Trump campaign source detailed the aggressive strategy, including the “suppression of votes” by Democratic-leaning groups, for the home stretch of the presidential race. “We’re bringing out tactical nukes now, with thermo nukes later,” the source said. Trump’s epic...

    There’s no good reason to have a Yahoo account these days. But after Tuesday’s bombshell report by Reuters, indicating the enormous, faltering web company designed a bespoke email-wiretap service for the U.S. government, we now know that a Yahoo account is a toxic surveillance liability. Reuters’s Joseph Menn is reporting that just last year, Yahoo chose to comply with a classified “directive” to build “a custom software program to search all of its customers’ incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials” — the NSA in particular. [UPDATE at 10:08 a.m., Oct. 5, 2016: Yahoo has issued a...

    Yahoo Inc last year secretly built a custom software program to search all of its customers' incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials, according to people familiar with the matter. The company complied with a classified U.S. government demand, scanning hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI, said three former employees and a fourth person apprised of the events. Some surveillance experts said this represents the first case to surface of a U.S. Internet company agreeing to an intelligence agency's request by searching all arriving messages, as...

    Yahoo scanned hundreds of millions of incoming emails at the behest of U.S. intelligence or law enforcement, according to a report published Tuesday. The internet company conducted the surveillance last year after receiving a classified demand from the National Security Agency or the FBI, Reuters said in its story. The report cited three former Yahoo employees and another unidentified person familiar with the matter. Those individuals told Reuters that the government pushed Yahoo to search for a string of letters, numbers or other characters. That meant the fishing expedition could have involved finding a specific phrase or code in the...

    Following Ted Cruz's endorsement of Donald Trump and president Obama's veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, aka the "Sept 11" bill allowing victims to sue Saudi Arabia in US court, the trifecta of Friday afternoon data dumps was completed by the FBI, when the agency released 189 pages of notes from its investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server, just three days before she squares off against Donald Trump in the first presidential debate. The notes are from FBI's interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials;...

    Top executives at social media giants Facebook and Yahoo have helped "bundle" $113 million for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to newly released campaign donations. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg were part of over 1,100 "elite bundlers" that also include actor Ben Affleck and the chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China. The analysis done by the Center for Public Integrity also found several lawmakers on the Clinton bundler list. CPI's Michael Beckel explained, "A 'bundler' is someone who collects checks from friends or associates and gives them to the...
