BACKSTORY -- “Why Eric Cantor really resigned,” by Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan: “In his decision to quit Congress altogether [on Aug. 18], Eric Cantor gave only one reason: so his successor could get a head start and 'have a voice in what will be a very consequential lame-duck session.' But several GOP lawmakers and aides suggested to POLITICO that there was more to this move. The last thing he wanted, they said, was to endure the humbling shift from 11 years in the leadership to being a back bencher, even if only for four months. … Although members can explore new job opportunities while still in office, his departure from Congress means that Cantor won’t have to disclose any companies or firms with whom he may be negotiating … Cantor never moved to the small Capitol office space he was scheduled to take over as a consolation prize for losing his sprawling majority leader suite. “Several Republicans said that as soon as … [Read more...] about POLITICO Playbook, presented by the National Retail Federation — FANCY FARM EDITION — 94 DAYS TO MIDTERMS — CANTOR LEAVES CAPITOL WITHOUT CASTING FINAL VOTE
(AP) LONDON - A massive, data-slurping cyberweapon is circulating in the Middle East, and computers in Iran appear to have been particularly affected, according to a Russian Internet security firm.Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab ZAO said the "Flame" virus was unprecedented both in terms of its size and complexity, possessing the ability to turn infected computers into all-purpose spying machines that can even suck information out of nearby cell phones."This is on a completely different level," Kaspersky researcher Roel Schouwenberg said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "It can be used to spy on everything that a user is doing." The announcement sent a ripple of excitement across the computer security sector. Flame is the third major cyberweapon discovered in the past two years, and Kaspersky's conclusion that it was crafted at the behest of a national government fueled speculation that the virus could be part of an Israeli-backed campaign of electronic sabotage aimed at archrival … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo “Flame” computer virus strikes Middle East; Israel speculation continues
(AP) Cybersecurity researchers said Monday that they'd found a link between the infrastructure-wrecking cyberweapon known as Stuxnet and the recently-discovered Flame virus - possibly offering a new clue about the latter's origins. Kaspersky Labs expert Alexander Gostev said in a blog post that his company had identified a similarity between a subset of the code used in Flame and another set of code used in an early version of Stuxnet, which is believed to have been aimed at Iran's disputed nuclear program.Kaspersky had previously said that while Flame and Stuxnet spread in similar ways, the two worked off of different coding platforms. "It turns out we were wrong," Gostev said. "Wrong, in that we believed Flame and Stuxnet were two unrelated projects." Alan Woodward, a cybersecurity researcher at the University of Surrey in southern England, backed Kaspersky's analysis, saying that the similarity they identified "does suggest that very early on there was some sharing" between the … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Cybersleuths see link between Flame, Stuxnet virus
"We live in a beautiful city," said Lynn, one of my relentlessly perky friends in Minneapolis. As she said this, we were engaged in certain behavior observed only among native Midwesterners: We were taking a pre-dawn run around Lake Calhoun on a bone-chilling January morning. Among other things, I was wearing a hat, a muffler, two pairs of gloves, a "base layer" of Dri-Fit tights, and a pair of winter running pants that cost $130. What on earth was Lynn talking about? As we rounded the lake's southern edge, I managed to wrest the ice-encrusted muffler from my face and finally saw it: the twinkling lights of downtown Minneapolis, radiant against the city's unpolluted, subzero skies. I turned my head. I rolled my eyes. I saw nothing beautiful about this winter scene. In this moment, I only wanted to escape this miserable and antiseptic icebox. Lucky me. Within the month, I would accept a new job and move cross-country to Boston, where at least it's somewhat warmer. Unlucky me. Exhausted … [Read more...] about Winter 2011: Why the @#$% do we live here?
LONDON (AP) — Britain has given Moscow until midnight Tuesday to explain how a Russian-made nerve agent came to poison a former spy in Britain. If no explanation is given, Prime Minister Theresa May says Russia will be hit by “extensive” retaliatory measures. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said U.K. officials are speaking to allies in the European Union and beyond to draw up a “commensurate but robust” response to the attack, which has left Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in critical condition.Britain has faced a similar crisis before. After former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko was killed in London with radioactive poison in 2006, London expelled several Russian diplomats, imposed visa restrictions, broke off intelligence cooperation and froze assets of the two prime suspects. Critics say that response was too weak, and claim Britain was reluctant to act because London’s property market and financial sector are magnets for billions in … [Read more...] about Sanctions, Cyberattack Among Possible UK Moves on Russia After Nerve Agent Attack
