‘It was a shock to see that she had announced it on social media hours later.’ 

He insists that he is now content to remain single and will not be signing up to online dating platforms anytime soon.

The TV personality added: ‘I’m very old-fashioned. I don’t actually like talking to people over a mobile phone or laptop. I’m a very sociable person. I like to be with somebody and talk to them.’

But it comes after Maura herself said that she would consider going back onto Love Island because she ‘needs a man’.

The 29-year-old took to Instagram last month to discuss her love life with fans. 

She rubbished claims linking her to Dancing on Ice partner Alexander Demetriou after he separated from his wife of four years, Carlotta Edwards, last month.

Maura said during the Q and A: ‘It doesn’t bother me. We’re in 2020 and a man and woman cannot just be friends…’ 

She then zoomed in on her face and said: ‘Pure sh*** you know.’

Maura also revealed that she has struggled with adjusting to fame since leaving the Love Island villa but assured fans that she is still single. 

Asked if she would ever return to Love Island, the Irish beauty replied: ‘Well, to be honest, I need a man. So maybe I’ll go back in next year, you never know.’

Last month, Alexander, 28, took to Instagram stories to confirm he had split from Carlotta amid reports that he became ‘besotted’ with Love Island beauty Maura. 

In a statement posted on Instagram stories, Alexander said: ‘I’m sorry I have been quiet on social media recently but it’s been a tough time for me personally. 

‘Carlotta and I have separated. Although it saddens me that we can no longer be together, I feel this is best for both of us.

‘I’m looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let’s all say home and stay safe.’

A friend of the former couple recently told their marriage troubles ‘came as a shock’, as they were so close before the last Dancing On Ice series.

Former NY Hospital Employee Admits to Stealing …

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Richard Liriano pleads guilty to compromising hospital computers and co-workers’ email accounts, as well as stealing personal files and photos.

The former IT employee of a New York City-area hospital has pled guilty to stealing colleagues’ credentials and logging into various accounts to steal private and confidential files, the Department of Justice reports. He used this access to view photos, videos, and other data.

Between 2013 and 2018, the allegations state, Richard Liriano abused his administrative access to log into employee accounts and copy his colleagues’ personal documents, including tax records and personal photographs, onto his own machine. To do this, he installed malicious programs, including a keylogger, onto victims’ machines so he could capture their credentials.

Over the course of this time frame, Liriano stole the usernames and passwords of about 70 or more email accounts belonging to hospital employees or people associated with them. He then obtained unauthorized access to password-protected email, social media, photography, and other online accounts where the victims were registered.

“Liriano’s disturbing crimes not only invaded the privacy of his coworkers; he also intruded into computers housing vital healthcare and patient information, costing his former employer hundreds of thousands of dollars to remediate,” US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. Liriano’s intrusions into the hospital networks caused more than $350,000 in losses.

#cyberfraud | #cybercriminals | Twitter Admits User Phone Numbers, Email Data Used For Ads

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Email addresses and phone numbers might have been misused

No personal data was shared externally by Twitter

No reports on the number of people impacted have come out yet

In a recent incident of a data breach, Twitter has confirmed that user data like email addresses and phone numbers provided by users for security purposes may have been unintentionally used for advertising purposes. 

According to a news report, currently, Twitter is unable to share with certainty the number of people impacted by the breach. However, the US-based company also asserted that no personal data was ever shared externally with their partners or any other third parties.  

In a statement, Twitter highlighted that the personal data, which were provided for safety or security purposes (for example, two-factor authentication) may have been inadvertently used for advertising purposes, specifically in their Tailored Audiences and Partner Audiences advertising system, which helps in creating relevant remarketing campaigns. 

While explaining how the breach occurred, Twitter is a statement said, “When an advertiser uploaded their marketing list, it may have matched people on our platform to that list based on the email or phone number that the user had provided for safety and security purposes.”

As of September 17, Twitter has acknowledged the problem and claimed that it has stopped using numbers or email addresses collected for safety or security purposes, for advertising. 

Although Twitter apologised for this error, it also shared that they have no idea how many people were impacted by this. “We’re very sorry this happened and are taking steps to make sure we don’t make a mistake like this again,” the microblogging site added in the statement. 

Twitter’s average monetisable daily active usage (mDAU) has grown from 122 million in 2018 June quarter to 139 million (29 Mn in the US and 110 Mn from international markets) in 2019 June quarter. Even in the previous quarter, it had a mDAU of 134 million.  

Data Breach On Rise: How Is India Protecting Itself? 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has touted data as the new oil and new gold and rightly so as it has become very lucrative for hackers to steal and sell the same. Earlier, online food delivery startups Zomato, and FreshMenu, fintech startup EarlySalary, McDonald’s India, Oyo, Ashley Madison, Sony, and many others have been the victims of data breaches.

Social media sites like Instagram and Facebook have also been affected by a data breach by advertisers. Recently, Instagram Ad partner was banned for scraping user data without consent. Even Facebook-linked phone numbers of over 419 Mn users were found on unsecured servers.

Whatsapp, which was planning to introduce its payments feature WhatsApp Payments by the end of this year, is also facing difficulties because of the government’s concerns over the messaging platform’s data localisation compliance. In September, National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) had asked WhatsApp to make changes in its policy to get the final approval for the launch of payments in India. NPCI had asked the instant messaging app to make changes in its data-compliance framework that prohibits storing payment data outside of India.

In May, India was reported as the second most cyberattacks affected country between the years 2016 to 2018. With the average cost for a data breach in India increased to 7.9% since 2017, the average cost per breached record has mounted to INR 4,552 ($64).

The Reserve Bank of India too recorded a total of 2,059 cases of cyber fraud in 2017-18 as compared to 1,372 cyber fraud cases in 2016-17.

Under Armour #admits 150 #million #MyFitnessPal #accounts were #hacked

Under Armour said on Thursday that data from some 150 million MyFitnessPal diet and fitness app accounts was compromised in February, in one of the biggest hacks in history, sending shares of the athletic apparel maker down 3 percent in after-hours trade.

The stolen data includes account user names, email addresses and scrambled passwords for the popular MyFitnessPal mobile app and website, Under Armour said in a statement. Social Security numbers, driver license numbers and payment card data were not compromised, it said.

It is the largest data breach this year and one of the top five to date, based on the number of records compromised, according to SecurityScorecard.

Larger hacks include 3 billion Yahoo accounts compromised in a 2013 incident and credentials for more than 412 million users of adult websites run by California-based FriendFinder Networks Inc in 2016, according to breach notification website LeakedSource.com.

Under Armour said it is working with data security firms and law enforcement, but did not provide details on how the hackers got into its network or pulled out the data without getting caught in the act.

While the breach did not include financial data, large troves of stolen email addresses can be valuable to cyber criminals.

Email addresses retrieved in a 2014 attack that compromised data on some 83 million JPMorgan Chase customers was later used in pump-and-dump schemes to boost stock prices, according to U.S. federal indictments in the case in 2015.

Under Armor said in an alert on its website that it will require MyFitnessPal users to change their passwords, and it urged users to do so immediately.

“We continue to monitor for suspicious activity and to coordinate with law enforcement authorities,” the company said, adding that it was bolstering systems that detect and prevent unauthorized access to user information.

Under Armour said it started notifying users of the breach on Thursday, four days after it first learned of the incident.

Under Armour bought MyFitnessPal in 2015 for $475 million. It is part of the company’s connected fitness division, whose revenue last year accounted for 1.8 percent of Under Armour’s $5 billion in total sales.

A retired teacher who abused children for decades both in the UK and abroad has admitted 45 sex offences in one of the worst cases to come to court.

Mark Frost, known as Andrew Tracey, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to a catalogue of abuse against nine children in Thailand between 2009 and 2012.

After the allegations emerged in Asia, two former pupils of a school in Worcestershire came forward claiming they too were sexually assaulted by the English teacher in the 1990s.

Frost, now 70, had sex with one of the boys in a school store room, at his home where he lived with his adopted son, and in a car park in Woking.
