Revelations from European leaders on Monday that the National Security Agency bugged European Union offices in Washington and hacked into its computer network bring to light hypocrisy on the part of the U.S. government.

In 2011, the Pentagon released its first formal cyber strategy, which called computer hacking from other nations an "act of war," according to the Wall Street Journal. In late June of this year, WSJ reported that Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, released information alleging the U.S. government was hacking Chinese targets "that include the nation's mobile-phone companies and one of the country's most prestigious universities." Now that EU offices have been hacked by the U.S. government as well, one must wonder if that was an "act of war" on the part of the United States.

Hacked Ad Seen on MySpace Served Spyware to a Million An online banner advertisement that ran on MySpace.com and other sites over the past week used a Windows security flaw to infect more than a million users with spyware when people merely browsed the si

Michael La Pilla, an iDefense "malcode" analyst, said he first spotted the attack Sunday while browsing MySpace on a Linux-based machine. When he browsed a page headed with an ad for DeckOutYourDeck.com, his browser asked him whether he wanted to open a file called exp.wmf. Microsoft released a patch in January to fix a serious security flaw in the way Windows renders WMF (Windows Metafile) images, and online criminal groups have been using the flaw to install adware, keystroke loggers and all manner of invasive software for the past seven months. The Deckoutyourdeck ad launching the WMF exploit.

Guidance Software -- the leading provider of software used to diagnose hacker break-ins -- has itself been hacked, resulting in the exposure of financial and personal data connected to thousands of law enforcement officials and network-security profession

Guidance alerted customers to the incident in a letter sent last week, saying it discovered on Dec. 7 that hackers had broken into a company database and made off with approximately 3,800 customer credit card numbers. The Pasadena, Calif.-based company said the incident occurred sometime in November and that it is working with the U.S. Secret Service on a more detailed investigation. Michael G. Kessler, president of New York City-based computer-forensics investigative firm Kessler International, received a letter notifying him that the company's American Express card was among those compromised by the attackers. Kessler received the notice from Guidance at the same time that a company credit-bill arrived with what he said were $20,000 in unauthorized charges for pay-per-click advertising at Google.com.

Hackers co-opted several popular Web sites including comedycentral.com over the weekend, using them to infect thousands of computers with a virus that can be used to steal passwords, bank accounts and other personal information.

Displaying an increasingly sophisticated approach to online theft, the hackers gained control of a German online advertising services firm and served up thousands of Internet ads designed to send visitors to one of several Web sites where the hackers had installed the virus. Hackers also can use the virus to plant programs on victims' computers that send out spam, flood monitors with pop-up advertising or attack other Web sites, said security researchers who analyzed the code.

Now that spring has arrived (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), it is an excellent time to clean up and decruft your WordPress site. In this post I will show you a number of plugins and techniques that you can use to do just that.

Not only do inactive plugins and themes waste disk space, they also clutter your database with unused settings and other metadata. Remember: most plugins won’t delete their DB options and tables until you completely uninstall them. You will also continue to receive update notifications, which can be a distraction. Remove any plugins and themes you’re not using any more.

Adobe has issued a security advisory warning users to patch a flaw in its popular Acrobat and Reader software.

The bug lies within the Adobe Reader control and potentially allows a hacker to find files held locally on a PC. An XML script would need to be designed and inserted into a Javascript file which could then be used to open access to local files.

App.net cofounder Bryan Berg noticed that LinkedIn was DNS-hijacked tonight and that traffic was rerouted to a shady India-based site. That's bad for LinkedIn, but there's worse news for you.

According to Berg, that site does not require SSL (secure sockets layer), which means that anyone who visited in the last hour or so sent it their long-lived session cookies in plain text ... a potential security risk. DNS hijacking is the process of redirecting a domain name to a different IP address. IP addresses are strings of numbers that identify a server, but they're long and hard to remember. The DNS system allows us to use simple, easy-to-remember names like linkedin.com, and it then translates them to IP address like 216.52.242.86.

On January 15, 2014, Mr. John Sanders was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of his 12 week-old baby daughter, Ja'Nayjah, who died just 24 days after receiving eight vaccinations in one day.

Ja'Nayjah Sanders was born a healthy, normal baby and received routine vaccinations, along with her mother, Marrie, before leaving the hospital. Two days later, at a routine checkup, the doctor told Marrie that her daughter had lost a couple of pounds since her birth and asked her to bring the baby back the next day for tests. However, the doctor appeared unconcerned and told Marrie that Ja'Nayjah was probably 'eating too much.' Instead of checking the baby over thoroughly, as one would expect, the doctor proceeded to ignore the warning signs that something could be very wrong regarding the health of this child and instead vaccinated the sick baby with the eight vaccinations listed on her vaccination card. These were the triple vaccine, the DTaP; polio; Rotavirus; hepatitis B, meningitis; and the Hib vaccination.

Dir. Clapper says a response to the Intelligence Committee in March was 'clearly erroneous.'

The director of National Intelligence apologized in June to the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee for lying during a hearing, according to a letter published on the DNI website on Tuesday. Director James Clapper appeared before the committee in March, where Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked him specifically if NSA spies on millions of Americans. Clapper answered, "No." Since then, Edward Snowden reportedly leaked government documents that unveiled a secretive government program that did precisely what Wyden suggested in collecting meta data for cell phone and internet records of hundreds of millions of Americans.

NSA found vulnerabilities including "viewing sexually explicit material online" and "using sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls," HuffPo reports

The National Security Agency collected evidence of online sexual activity and visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of six people the agency considered "radicalizers," the Huffington Post reported, citing documents released by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The targets, all Muslims, are described in the document as examples of how "personal vulnerabilities" can be learned through electronic surveillance, and then exploited to undermine a target's credibility, reputation and authority, HuffPo said in its report. Among the vulnerabilities are "viewing sexually explicit material online" and "using sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls," according to the NSA document, dated Oct. 3, 2012.
