Hackers #leak song #Nicki Minaj didn’t want to be part of

Rapper Nicki Minaj has been away from the limelight for a few months now and the last time she posted on social media was in December 2017. She is reportedly keeping herself busy with her upcoming album. But she is in news now after a song she didn’t want to be a part of surfaced online.

It seems Nicki Minaj originally featured in Canadian rapper Tory Lanez’s song Shooters but she decided to back out after the latter’s comment about her verse. The Bang Bang singer told him to delete her portion of the song and that was it.

“She (Nicki Minaj) was on Shooters originally. She was on the record first and I had like…I was telling her something about the verse. I wasn’t saying it was bad or anything, her verse was incredible and I’m also like a super-Nicki fan. But I was telling her something the verse I think maybe …It may have come cloud texting her, so it may have come off just like in a different way..she might have read it differently than i said it,” Tory told HotNewHipHop in an interview.

“I shouldn’t have said about her verse and she was like well, it’s just not that serious, take my verse off the thing,” he added.

Verizon #shareholders want #executive #pay tied to how well it #improves its #cybersecurity

With data breaches at Yahoo, Equifax, and seemingly every other company plugged into the internet, who hasn’t had their personal information compromised? If fines, lawsuits, and the stock market aren’t enough to compel companies to improve security, activist stockholders have another idea—hitting executives in their wallets. Today, shareholders in Verizon filed a proposal for the company’s May 3 annual meeting requesting the board to consider tying the compensation of “senior executives” to the company’s security performance.

The effort is led by social- and environmental-oriented investment management firm Trillium Asset Management, and by the New York State Common Retirement Fund, a behemoth with about $192 billion in assets.

The proposal cites some of the more recent Verizon data breaches: info on 1.5 million customers in 2016 and 6 million in 2017. But it also notes the elephant in the mergers and acquisitions room: Verizon’s recent purchase of both AOL and Yahoo—the latter company infamous for hackers compromising the data of a billion users. Rolling these companies together, Verizon plans to massively extend its digital advertising business to reach up to 2 billion additional people, the proposal states. And advertising partnerships will mean sharing information with more third parties.

Fight #cyber threats by understanding why #hackers want your info

 Understanding what intruders want is the first step in planning to prevent cyber threats from exploiting business and organization online operations, said panelists Thursday at the 2017 Wyoming Broadband Summit.

Experts in dealing with cyber security threats in Wyoming presented their views as members of a panel on “Cybersecurity – Investing, Growing, Planning and Understanding.” Panelists said not all cyber attackers were looking for the same information.

For a hospital, it might be personal information tied to treatments; for a business, it could be transactions that are needed to keep that business running; for an individual, it may be credit card or bank account access.

“You have to understand what data you have that they want,” said Sean Sanchez, of Optiv Solutions, a cybersecurity firm.

Phishing scams are the most common cybersecurity threats facing enterprise, panelists said. Lack of a cybersecurity plan, or not following one, was another problem.

James Drever, a regional director for the Wyoming Small Business Development Center, said bad password management was a problem he often finds when helping clients with less than 50 employees that have suffered a cyber-attack.

“It’s common for people to use the same password everywhere,” Drever said. “I’ll have them check a website called haveibeenpwned.com to find out if their email password has been ‘owned.’ Most of the time I can go to that website and find that they’ve been owned. And those are just the ones we know about.”

Failure to have an adequate back up system is another common issue for small businesses, he said. Backing up data is essential to recovering from a cyber-attack or even a fire that may destroy a business. But that backup can’t be on the same premises as the business. If not using a cloud-based backup, then use an external drive but take the business drive home and take your home backup drive to work after updating.

Robert Pettigrew, director of Information Services/Clinical Engineering for the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, outlined how a cyber security plan helped the hospital work through the aftermath of an email phishing scam that only hit two computers but left the system down for 10 minutes. Security protocols helped prevent the spread of invasive software, but it was discovered that information connected to 2,000 patients might have been compromised. That triggered a federal review of the hospital’s cyber security operations, but thanks to a management and recovery plan that it was in place, the hospital was cleared of any violations. It still cost the hospital several hundred thousand dollars over a couple of years to satisfy federal reviewers.

Because of the phishing scam, Pettigrew said the hospital convinced employees to use two-factor authentication for their email accounts to reduce the possible of a repeat incident. Cyber security training has also been stepped up.

Sanchez and Mike Borowczak, University of Wyoming Cybersecurity Education and Research director, said researchers at higher educational Institutions can be reluctant to place security protocols on their research because it slows down work.

“The federal government is requiring cyber security protocols as part of grants,” Borowczak said.

Asked by moderator Dave Ritz, U.S. Department of Homeland Security in Cheyenne, what the federal government could to help improve response to cyber threats, the panelists responded that more timely information would help.

“Vulnerability and exploit information should be shared faster,” Sanchez said

Ritz agreed, but said that national security considerations and bureaucracy can slow down the information flow.

An integrated architecture can help service providers get the upper hand over the ever-increasing range of cyber security threats I’ve visited RSA, the world’s biggest internet security conference in San Francisco, for the past few years.

Never choose your own dating profile picture if you want to find romance, say scientists

Daters are being warned not to choose their own profile picture if they want to find romance online. New research has found that strangers are far better at picking the most flattering images to give a more favourable first impression to prospective suitors. The findings appear to contradict previous research which showed that people tend to portray themselves more favorably than others. “Our findings suggest that people make poor choices when selecting flattering images of themselves for online profile pictures, which affects other people’s perception of them,” said Dr David White, lead author from the University of New South Wales in Sydney.

Swiping for love in a hopeless place? Just 4% of millennial Tinder users want a relationship

We bring bad news for anyone using the Tinder dating app to actually look for a new relationship – and even those after a no-strings hookup are going to be disappointed, as the majority of users are swiping right to boost their own self-confidence, or procrastinate. In fact, of almost 10,000 millennial college students asked, just 4% – fewer than one in 20 people – said they use Tinder to look for a relationship. And while 22% are after a hookup, almost 45% are procrastinating with no intent to meet anyone they talk to, and 29% are there for mysterious ‘other reasons’, a new survey has found. Read More….

Swiping Right: What do men want?

Have you ever interviewed your dating app match? Like sat down, had a face-to-face conversation, and asked them what they’re looking for in a partner and are they having trouble finding one? I decided to have a chat with mine, Jeffrey, a pretty chill guy who didn’t look creepy in his Bumble profile picture. Thanks to a string of dating app disappointments, my swipe right standards are so low, if a guy’s not half naked pushing a CrossFit tire, I’ll likely give him a chance. Read More….
