Hacking/Cyberwarfare

'Hackers' give orders to German missile battery:

"German-owned Patriot missiles stationed in Turkey were briefly taken over by
hackers, according to media reports on Tuesday.

The attack took place on anti-aircraft ‘Patriot’ missiles on the Syrian border. The
American-made weapons had been stationed there by the Bundeswehr (German
army) to protect Nato ally Turkey.

According to the civil service magazine, the missile system carried out “unexplained”
orders. It was not immediately clear when these orders were carried out and what
they were."

The Largest Government Hack Ever Is Way Bigger Than We Thought:

"When the Office of Personnel Management began investigating a data breach, it
was already a dire situation, with 4.2 million federal workers’ information stolen.
Then things got worse. And worse.

During the investigation of the hack, the OPM found a second theft, the existence of
which was first reported back in June. But today, we learned that this second data
theft hijacked personal information from between 21 million and 25 million federal
workers and contractors. That’s larger than the population of New York State!"

===========================================


Second OPM Hack Stole Data of 21.5M People, Including Biometric:

"The breach affects nearly everyone that underwent a background check through
OPM in 2000 or later."

===========================================


Senator Sasse: The OPM Hack May Have Given China a Spy Recruiting
Database:


"When applying for a security clearance with the SF-86, applicants list their family
members, neighbors, co-workers, foreign contacts, and even college roommates.

What this means is that not only do the hackers know lots of sensitive
information about millions of government employees, they also know a great deal
about many of the people they know and love. The implications for threats,
intimidation, and blackmail are chilling. “Oh, you don’t want to sell out your
country? OK, we get it. By the way, your parents still live at 2911 Rainbow Drive,
right?”"

Pretty much all user data at Yahoo was hacked:

"Yahoo on Wednesday disclosed a breach that took place in August of 2013 which may
have resulted in data associated with more than one billion user accounts being stolen.

This new, 1-billion-account breach is separate from a 500-million-account breach the
company disclosed in September.

At the time, the 500-million-account breach was the largest on record."

The hack occurred in 2013, but was only discovered and revealed a couple days ago. There was another hack (500M account PWs stolen, instead of 1B) that took place in 2014 (suspected to be the work of China or Russia) and got disclosed in September of this year.

Yahoo! should've already asked you in September to change your PW, delete your security questions and whatnot. So if you already did that back then, you should be in the clear now.

Of course, you can still once again change your PW if you want.

A hacker has leaked 10 stolen episodes of 'Orange Is
the New Black’ season 5 after Netflix allegedly refused
to pay ransom:


"An anonymous hacker has carried through on a threat to release “Orange Is the New
Black” season five episodes online — after Netflix allegedly failed to respond to the
cybercriminal’s shakedown demands.

Variety was unable to verify the authenticity of the “OITNB” episodes the hacker claimed
to have shared on popular file-sharing site the Pirate Bay.

The first 10 episodes of season 5 were apparently shared shortly before 6 a.m. ET
Saturday, with the 10 files comprising a total of 11.46 gigabytes. The hacker, who uses
the handle “thedarkoverlord,” published the premiere episode from the upcoming season
of “Orange Is the New Black” on Friday to the Pirate Bay."

That Orange Is the New Black Leak Was Never Going to Pay Off:

"It must have seemed like a safe bet, as extortion plots go: Steal a prized original
series from Netflix and shake the company down with the threat of releasing it months
before it airs. But the sudden appearance of season five of Orange Is the New Black on
torrenting site The Pirate Bay shows the crime was destined to failure, because the
people behind it misunderstand how streaming, and the internet, work today."

"It’s been a dizzying few days for news about hackers demanding ransom. It’s hard to tell which events
are connected. But according to multiple reports, hackers are threatening to leak a major film owned by
Disney, and sources tell Deadline that the movie is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales."
