Federal authorities last week launched a probe of a suspected cyberattack that targeted the private Gmail account of a White House staffer.

The latest dump involves the private account of White House staffer Ian Mellul, whose emails were published with the claim that they represented just part of a trove of correspondence from February 2015 through June of this year.

Project Shield Has Krebs on Security’s Back

Filed under: Latest News — admintech @ 6:24 pm

The website of prominent security blogger Brian Krebs is back online this week after sustaining one of the largest distributed denial of service attacks in Internet history.

Gadget Ogling: Driving Partner, Hydration Station, and Flying Grabbers

Filed under: Latest News — admintech @ 5:35 pm

Her wish eventually might turn true with a device that grants vehicles more autonomy. It isn’t a device that will give a car full self-driving powers — you’d need to add sensors everywhere, for starters — nor does it work with every model.
