Uber Admits It Hid Massive Cyberattack For Over A Year, Paid Hackers To Keep Quiet

In a somewhat stunning – even for Uber – series of events, Bloomberg reports that the ride-hailing service concealed a massive cyberattack – in which hackers stole personal data from 57 million customers – for more than a year… and paid the hackers $100,000 to keep quiet about the cyberattack.

This week, the ride-hailing company ousted Joe Sullivan, chief security officer, and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps.

Compromised data from the October 2016 attack included names, email addresses and phone numbers of over 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company told Bloomberg on Tuesday.


The driverless revolution may exact a political price

In its race to embrace driverless vehicles, Washington has cleared away regulatory hurdles for auto companies and brushed aside consumer warnings about the risk of crashes and hacking.

But at a recent hearing, lawmakers absorbed an economic argument that illustrated how the driverless revolution they are encouraging could backfire politically, particularly in Trump country.

It was the tale of a successful, long-distance beer run.


Thousands of Haitians living in the U.S. could come to Canada, but feds say they’ll be ready

They may come in waves, all at once, or not at all.

But government officials in Canada say that regardless of how Haitians living in the United States under temporary protection status (TPS) react to losing that status, they’ll be ready.

The American government confirmed on Monday that as of July 2019, it will end TPS for around 60,000 Haitians who took up residence in the U.S. after a deadly earthquake rocked their island home in 2010.


The Islamic State calls on Muslims to murder Barron Trump

Pro-ISIS internet channels are calling for the assassination of President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and have shared personal details of the child’s life on its social media networks, including the address of his school, according to a media monitoring organization.

ISIS supporters, on a well-known Telegram channel, shared the name and address of Barron Trump’s school and are calling for backers of the terrorist organization to assassinate him, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.

The initial message, sent on Nov. 21 by an ISIS supporter on Telegram, “called for the assassination of Barron Trump, and shared the name of the school that Barron attends along with a Google map pinpointing its location,” according to MEMRI, which shares images of this messages with reporters.


Liberal government backs bill that demands full implementation of UN Indigenous rights declaration

Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould says the Liberal government will back a bill that calls for the full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), a move that could have wide-ranging consequences in Canadian law.

Speaking in Gatineau, Que., late Monday at an event commemorating UNDRIP, the Vancouver-area minister said the Liberals are now prepared to support an NDP private member’s bill that would force the government’s hand to implement all provisions of the declaration — something the government has been loath to do in the past.

    Great news for Canadians! The wax statue of Trudeau is done. Now millions of his adoring fans can flock to that wax museum to worship at his feet. According to the media, the hardest part was getting his perfect hair just right. And I hope everyone saw his speech for the arrival of the Grey Cup, where he ranted about diversity. In other news, the Sun is reporting that Wynne lost only a billion dollars selling green energy. What a bargain!! And it seems if your a leftist, you can get away with sexual assault. The moral conscience of America, Saturday Night Live, has issued a letter by over 36 former members and writers of the cast, that are supporting Franken. .

    I hope everyone saw the heart breaking story on the CBC’s National last night. A Syrian muslim family isn’t getting enough free stuff. But they should not worry, little Justin is announcing billions of dollars today, for low income housing. That will help with the thousands of muslims and Haitians flocking in. The CBC is also showing the heart breaking story this morning, of a muslim terrorist back in Canada, getting ready to sue the government. He better hurry and get that cheque, because little Justin is heading for China to sell out Canada.

      Canada will welcome those Haitians with open arms – after all, they are Black & they speak French. Too bad they aren’t Muslims or they’d have hit the Trifecta.

    Great Expectations, or Entitlement Deferred

    Faiz Siddiqui alleges “inadequate” teaching on his modern history course at Oxford University resulted in him getting only an upper second class honours degree in June 2000.
    He blames staff being absent on sabbatical leave and is now, seventeen years later, suing the university for £1m. He also alleges medical information about him was not submitted to examiners by a tutor.

    Whilst a 2:1 degree from Oxford might rightly seem like a tremendous achievement to most, it fell significantly short of Mr Siddiqui’s expectations and was, to him, a huge disappointment.
    His employment history in legal and tax roles was “frankly poor” and he was now unemployed, rather than having a career at the tax bar in England or a major US law firm. Mr Siddiqui also said his clinical depression and insomnia have been significantly exacerbated by his “inexplicable failure”.

      It would be in line with the Shame culture of the muslim community where all bad things that befall you are never your fault, never due to you being lazy, never due to you just not being good enough: it all must be the fault of those people around you (this is called an ‘external locus of control’ in psychology). When you are regularly told that you are a member of a group of superior beings, then the reality of not being superior is treated as a deliberate attempt to discriminate against you.

    You can see the muslim areas in Calgary shining through.

    • Linda1000

      There are whole areas of the city I never go to anymore. Don’t even feel safe driving through them. When I moved to Calgary in 1985 it was a sleepy big town
      Have to get out of this place now.
