Exclusive: Microsoft to warn email users of suspected hacking by governments


Microsoft Corp said on Wednesday it will begin warning users of its Outlook.com email service when the company suspects that a government has been trying to hack into their accounts.

Microsoft told Reuters about the plan in a statement. It comes nine days after Reuters asked the company why it had decided not tell victims of a hacking campaign, discovered in 2011, that had targeted international leaders of China's Tibetan and Uighur minorities in particular.

According to two former employees of Microsoft, the company's own experts had concluded several years ago that Chinese authorities had been behind the campaign but the company did not pass on that information to users of its Hotmail service, which is now called Outlook.com.

In its statement, Microsoft said neither it nor the U.S. government could pinpoint the sources of the hacking attacks and that they didn't come from a single country.
For two years, Microsoft has offered alerts about potential security breaches without specifying the likely suspect. In the statement, Microsoft said: "As the threat landscape has evolved our approach has too, and weíll now go beyond notification and guidance to specify if we reasonably believe the attacker is 'state-sponsored'."

Russell Brand said it perfectly: You'd think if Jesus was that concerned about homosexuality

You'd think if Jesus was that concerned about homosexuality he had the perfect opportunity to address the issue in his top ten dos and don'ts.

Martin Shkreli's former company KaloBios Pharmaceuticals files for bankruptcy

Yesterday it said it would appeal its financial issues, today, not so much.

From Breaking News site.

I hope the creditors sue the hell out of Shkreli.

Nasdaq to delist Bay Area company run by drug price gouger Shkreli

This is fantastic....greedy self entitled Shkreli is to blame for his own company crashing and burning in the public eye.



TRENTON, N.J. -- KaloBios, the Bay Area biotech company run by Martin Shkreli, the reviled drug price-gouger charged with securities fraud last week, was informed Wednesday that its stock will be delisted by Nasdaq because of Shkreli's arrest and other issues.

KaloBios Pharmaceuticals also is dealing with the abrupt resignation of its accounting firm and a void left by its firing of Shkreli.

KaloBios was running out of money and planning to suspend its research programs and shut down operations in November. That's when Shkreli, the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, swooped in and gained controlling interest of KaloBios stock. Shkreli was immediately named chief executive officer and chairman of the board of the South San Francisco drug developer.

In a statement Wednesday, KaloBios said that Nasdaq wrote that it will be removed from trading on Dec. 30 if KaloBios doesn't appeal. The company has not yet decided whether it will appeal.

Nasdaq cited reasons for the delisting including the indictment and arrest of both Shkreli and an outside attorney for KaloBios, Evan Greebel, plus the company's noncompliance with Nasdaq financial reporting rules. KaloBios has not filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission a report on its financial results for the three months ended Sept. 30, as publicly traded companies are required to do every three months.

Now HERE'S a thought.......

Preliminary count indicates 11 tornadoes hit Dallas area Saturday evening,

according to National Weather Service.

That was just the Dallas area.
Weather officials also confirmed tornadoes striking the Texas towns Ovilla, Farmersville and Rowlett - which neighbors Garland. Images uploaded to social media showed a massive tornado near Rowlett and at least one destroyed structure.

sadly, 7 people were killed on this Christmas holiday weekend there.

The tornadoes also killed six people in Tennessee and one each in Arkansas and Alabama, bringing the three-state total to 18.

this is in addition to the people killed by the previous tornadoes a couple days ago.

I hope everyone can see Bridge of Spies.

Did not realize till the end that it was directed by Spielberg and written by the Coen brothers.
Tom Hanks did a wonderful low key acting job, the story is true, and the spirit of the cold war is really captured well.

Best of all, IMHO, it has Mark Rylance, of Wolf Hall fame, as one of the leading characters.
I have a serious crush in his mind and those marvelous soulful eyes.

Someone replaced Donald Trumpís voice with a British accent, and itís disturbingly genius
