Porn raid on former social worker uncovers stolen case files on abused children

STOLEN case files on abused children were found during a police raid on a former social worker.

Officers swooped on Anthony O’Donoghue’s home as part of a probe into a child porn ring.

But they also found official documents providing details of sex abuse victims.

The confidential files involved youngsters who were under supervision of the now-defunct Strathclyde Regional Council social work department and dated back to the 80s and early 90s.

O’Donoghue, 62, stole the paperwork while he was a temporary care officer between 1988 and 2006.

Police also discovered a stash of illegal images during the search at his home in Renfrew in March.

How your washing machine can steal computer files

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Imagine hackers stealing top secret files from a military base. Except they don’t need the Internet to pull data out of the facility’s computers. Instead, they can just infect an office printer and — with software alone — turn it into a radio. This sounds like sci-fi, but it’s now possible. Security researchers at a Manhattan startup have discovered how to make any modern device — printer, washing machine, air conditioner — broadcast invisible, inaudible signals for miles. That’s a game changer — and a huge step forward for hackers. The rapidly expanding $77 billion cybersecurity industry is all about guarding computer networks. Companies and governments buy products to stay protected. But they keep running out of effective defensive options. Keep out the hackers! Wait, they got in? Limit access! Wait, they grabbed the files? Don’t let them escape! That’s where Ang Cui and his team of bright researchers come in. They found a way to sneak data out of a computer network without setting off any alarms. It’s groundbreaking research, because it also hints at the ability to steal data from computers that aren’t even connected to the Internet, like those at nuclear facilities. Last week, the team at […]
