It’s an astonishing state of affairs, when the Public Internet Registry (PIR) can sell itself, without clear oversight and scrutiny as the sole administrator of the .ORG TLD (efectively meaning the conveyance of ownership of the .ORG TLD) to a private equity firm… Read Jon Brodkins’ take at Ars Technica on this…

Digital #billboards in the #UK will today start #showing #hacking #attempts

Source: National Cyber Security News

The campaign, sponsored by an insurance company, intends to demonstrate how often hacking attempts are made on a typical small business site.

A variety of recent campaigns have employed digital billboards to show imagery in response to data from weather, traffic conditions, social posts from passersby and commute times.

Today, a new week-long campaign launches in the UK: Dozens of digital displays will demonstrate the frequency of hacking attempts on a typical small business’s website.

Called the Honeypot Poster by campaign sponsor Hiscox insurance, the displays show dots that demonstrate live hacking attempts on custom, “honeypot” proxy servers of the sort that might host a typical small business website, except there was no virus or firewall protection. The servers hold some data but no personal or sensitive info.

The displays show changing dots inside the words “Cyber Attack,” with each dot representing a hacking attempt and a numerical counter showing the daily attacks thus far. During the trial period for the campaign, the hacking attempts averaged 23,000 daily, sometimes peaking as high as 60,000, from Russia, Vietnam, the UK and elsewhere around the world.

The point, Hiscox Head of Marketing and Partnerships Olivia Hendrick said in a statement, is to make “small businesses more aware of the very real threat that cybercrime poses and challenging the belief that cyber criminals only target larger organisations.

He made the statement during a meeting with Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner. Stefanovic met with Mikl-Leitner late on Wednesday to brief her on the current situation in the field of illegal migrations. He said that the number of attempted illegal border crossings has dropped, while the number of criminal charges filed for people smuggling has risen significantly, the Serbian Ministry of Interior said in a statement. Mikl-Leitner thanked Stefanovic for the quick reaction regarding illegal migration from Kosovo, informing him of her ministry’s efforts aimed at introducing a quick procedure for processing asylum requests. The two officials also discussed improvement of cooperation in the field of high-technology crime and the fight against terrorism. Mikl-Leitner invited Stefanovic to attend a March meeting “on fighting terrorists and foreign mercenaries,” and noted that a safer Serbia means a safer European Union. She also offered unreserved support to Serbia’s efforts to become a full EU member state. source: http://www.b92.net/eng/news/crimes.php?yyyy=2015&mm=02&dd=19&nav_id=93234

The “perfect victim” myth: How attempts to discredit rape survivors stand in the way of real change

Following the lead of a December piece in the New York Times, the Daily Beast and writer Cathy Young on Tuesday profiled Paul Nungesser, the man Emma Sulkowicz says raped her and is the reason she’s carrying her dorm mattress in a performance art and protest piece called “Carry That Weight.” There is nothing in Young’s story that the Times didn’t already cover, and both make essentially the same case: Nungesser believes he is a nice guy who was wrongly accused of rape and is now being bullied off campus by an avenging woman and her network of powerful supporters, including New York Sen.
