Selco: Who Survives and Who Dies When the SHTF?

Did you ever wonder about the differences in how people behave in a crisis? Why some people survive and some people die? Are there characteristics that we can nurture now in good times that could help see us through bad times?

I'd talked with Selco previously about who lives and who doesn't in a long-term emergency, and a great determiner is a flexible mindset. In this interview, we go deeper into who can withstand the stress of an SHTF event and who crumbles. Today he shares his insights from the Balkan War.

If you get this message, do NOT open it: Devastating Apple ChaiOS 'text bomb' can crash your iPhone or Mac with a single link

A devastating 'text bomb' that crashes Apple devices has been uncovered by researchers.

It works by sending iPhones, iPads and Macs into a frenzy after a malicious web address is opened in Apple's Message app.

The ChaiOS hack, which causes devices to crash and can delete all your messages, affects any device running iOS and Mac OS.

A fix for the issue, which is not the first text bomb to hit Apple, has not yet been created but is expected in future updates.

A password for the Hawaii emergency agency was hiding in a public photo, written on a Post-it note

On Saturday, people in Hawaii were awakened by a terrifying false alert about an inbound missile. Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency has said a worker clicked the wrong item in a drop-down menu and sent it, and that its system was not hacked.

"It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the changeover of a shift, and an employee pushed the wrong button," Gov. David Ige said.

But an Associated Press photo from July that recently resurfaced on Twitter has raised questions about the agency's cybersecurity practices.

In it, the agency's operations officer poses in front of a battery of screens. Attached to one is a password written on a Post-it note.

Hospital injects $60,000 into crims' coffers to cure malware infection

A US hospital paid extortionists roughly $60,000 to end a ransomware outbreak that forced staff to use pencil-and-paper records.

The crooks had infected the network of Hancock Health, in Indiana, with the Samsam software nasty, which scrambled files and demanded payment to recover the documents. The criminals broke in around 9.30pm on January 11 after finding a box with an exploitable Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) server, and inject their ransomware into connected computers.

Medical IT teams were alerted in early 2016 that hospitals were being targeted by Samsam, although it appears the warnings weren’t heeded in this case.

According to the hospital, the malware spread over the network and was able to encrypt “a number of the hospital’s information systems,” reducing staff to scratching out patient notes on pieces of dead tree.

Another round of click-fraud extensions pulled from Chrome Store

A security researcher has claimed that half a million Chrome users have been hit by four malicious browser extensions pushing click and SEO fraud.

Icebrg's Justin Warner and Mario De Tore spotted the extensions while investigating a spike in outbound traffic from a workstation in a customer's network. The company claims the four extensions had more than 500,000 downloads in all.

The extensions were Change HTTP Request Header (a legitimate capability is to hide browser type from trackers) and three apparently related to it: Nyoogle - Custom Logo for Google, Lite Bookmarks, and Stickies - Chrome's Post-it Notes.

Skygofree — Powerful Android Spyware Discovered

Security researchers have unveiled one of the most powerful and highly advanced Android spyware tools that give hackers full control of infected devices remotely.

Dubbed Skygofree, the Android spyware has been designed for targeted surveillance, and it is believed to have been targeting a large number of users for the past four years.

Since 2014, the Skygofree implant has gained several novel features previously unseen in the wild, according to a new report published by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Labs.

The 'remarkable new features' include location-based audio recording using device's microphone, the use of Android Accessibility Services to steal WhatsApp messages, and the ability to connect infected devices to malicious Wi-Fi networks controlled by attackers.

EXCLUSIVE - China prepares to deploy nuclear submarines at Pakistan's Gwadar Port: True face of CPEC?

China has already begun work on infrastructure required to station nuclear submarines at the Gwadar Port in southwestern Pakistan. This vindicates India's long-standing discomfort over the possibility that the true purpose of China's involvement in Gwadar is strategic more than trade.

Beijing blasts ‘illegal’ US & Canada-led summit for evoking Korean War ghosts

China has criticized the US and Canada for holding a summit of nations, most of which supported Seoul during the 1950s war on the Korean Peninsula, saying evoking Cold War ghosts has no place in the world today.

The summit in Vancouver brought together foreign ministers and top officials from 20 nations, who agreed to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang through additional economic sanctions on top of those imposed by the UN Security Council. China and Russia, which both border North Korea and are major players in the ongoing crisis, were not invited.

Commenting on the results of the event, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang dismissed the summit, saying it “has not the slightest legality and representativeness to speak of.”

Iran Arrests Leaders of Recent Riots in Isfahan

Four females who endeavored to provoke the recent economic protests into riots and received orders from the anti-revolutionary forces outside the country were arrested by security forces in the Central city of Isfahan.

security and law enforcement police officials said that the four women had played a role in provoking the protestors during the recent riots in Isfahan and were detained.

They added that preliminary investigations disclosed that they had links with an online movement named 'My Stealthy Freedom' that was commenced in 2014 by Masih Alinejad, an Iran-born anti-revolutionary journalist and activist based in Britain and the US, as well as a the West-based Telegram channel, Sedaei Mardom (formerly known as Amad News), which released fake reports on continued protests in Tehran.

Tehran's Public and Revolution Courts Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi announced last week that hundreds of detainees arrested by the security forces during the recent riots have been released.

HOW YOUR CAR IS SPYING ON YOU: EXPERTS REVEAL HOW AUTOMAKERS CAN TRACK EVERYTHING FROM YOUR WEIGHT TO THE FOOD YOU EAT USING IN-BUILT SENSORS

Experts have revealed the myriad ways that your car can spy on your personal habits. Automakers track your vehicle’s location, how fast you drive, what entertainment you listen to, through internet-connected systems in modern cars. Newer cars can even record a driver’s eye movements, the weight of people in the front seats, the weather on your street, and where you prefer to eat.

Flashback: Dr Joel Hayward in the Firing Line Again

In 1993, Joel Hayward completed an MA thesis on the literature of holocaust revisionism. Hayward was of Jewish descent, was a member of the New Zealand Friends of Israel, and a co-founder of Opposition to Anti-Semitism. Yet in the course of his studies, he had come to regard holocaust revisionist literature as making some valid points. It was a controversial conclusion that nonetheless garnered Hayward First Class Honors. When in the year 2000 a University “embargo” on public release had expired, the NZ Jewish Council, and Professor Dov Bing of Waikato University launched a campaign to have Hayward’s Masterate revoked. The matter was made public by Bing, presumably on the safe assumption that the news media could be relied upon to mindlessly smear Hayward, which it duly did.
Hayward was harassed, threatened, and had several nervous breakdowns. He had to resign from his position as lecturer of defense at Massey University, Palmerton North, and became unemployable in New Zealand.

THE GREATEST MURDERER IN HISTORY

Stalin was the biggest murderer of modern history - and maybe in of all mankind's past. His number of victims was only rivaled by Genghis Khan and, in our era, Mao Zedong ... While the world remembers the Jewish Holocaust, it has almost totally forgotten the other Holocausts.... No one knows the exact figure of deaths in the Soviet Union. But it far exceeded in numbers and scope Hitler's killings. Yet these epic Soviet crimes have all but vanished from our collective memories. No should have a monopoly on suffering. Almost equally disturbing, the US, Canada and Britain have never squarely faced the ugly fact that their close wartime ally, Stalin, was a far worse mass murderer than enemy Adolf Hitler ... Ever since, Hitler has been relentlessly demonized while Stalin has faded from our understanding.

These Are the Real Causes of the Iran Protests

... Even though protests appear to have fizzled out over the past two days, the population's anger and frustration will remain until the Rouhani government takes concrete steps to address the protesters' legitimate grievances. While Rouhani can - and should - make changes to the budget, he has less control over the deeper problem of unemployment and the absence of foreign investment ... Precisely because Trump doesn't care about the protesters and is more interested in destabilizing Iran and undoing anything and everything with Barack Obama's name on it, he may well use the protests as a pretext to do what he has always intended to do: Kill the nuclear deal. The only deviation from Trump's original plan is that he could now pretend to do it out of love for the people of Iran.

The Case Against Iraqing Iran

The case against Iraqing Iran includes the following points: Threatening war is a violation of the U.N. Charter. Waging war is a violation of the U.N. Charter and of the Kellogg-Briand Pact. Waging war without Congress is a violation of the U.S. Constitution ... War supporters said the U.S. urgently needed to attack Iran in 2007. It did not attack. The claims turned out to be lies. Even a National Intelligence Estimate in 2007 pushed back and admitted that Iran had no nuclear weapons program. Having a nuclear weapons program is not a justification for war, legally, morally, or practically ... In the Gallup poll, people within the U.S. chose Iran as the top threat to peace on earth - Iran which had not attacked another nation in centuries and spent less than one percent of what the U.S. spent on militarism.

What Is America’s Mission Now?

Informing Iran, "The U.S. is watching what you do," Amb. Nikki Haley called an emergency meeting Friday of the Security Council regarding the riots in Iran. The session left her and us looking ridiculous. France's ambassador tutored Haley that how nations deal with internal disorders is not the council's concern. Russia's ambassador suggested the United Nations should have looked into our Occupy Wall Street clashes and how the Missouri cops handled Ferguson ... The episode exposes a malady of American foreign policy. It lacks consistency, coherence and moral clarity, treats friends and adversaries by separate standards, and is reflexively interventionist.
