4 Male youths, 1 female dead. Stabbings in Calgary Alberta
Apr 15, 2014 - 4:35 PM - by blackbear
According to neighbours, the youths had been celebrating the last day of university classes with a fire in a home's backyard. Bermuda Shorts Day festivities to mark the end of the University of Calgary’s winter semester have been a campus tradition since 1960. Four males and one female in their late teens to early 20s — died following early-morning stabbings in northwest Calgary.Three pronounced dead at the scene,two others were taken to hospital in critical, life-threatening condition, and later died.The suspect fled on foot but police arrested him about 40 minutes later with assistance from the K-9 unit.Several witnesses were taken to the police station to be interviewed.There was never any problems there before.It’s pretty shocking, it just goes to show it can happen anywhere.

WoW !!! The Heartbleed Bug,Revenue Canada had 900 SINs stolen
Apr 15, 2014 - 2:56 AM - by blackbear
Around 900 Canadians had their SINs stolen.Canada Revenue Agency said early Monday it became aware of the breach while repairing the bug, and that the theft happened over a six-hour period.Approximately 900 taxpayers were removed from CRA systems by someone exploiting the Heartbleed vulnerability," the CRA said.The loss of a social insurance number is among the most serious and dangerous forms of identity theft. "Along with other personal information, someone may be able to use your SIN to apply for a credit card or open a bank account, rent vehicles, equipment, or accommodation in your name, leaving you responsible for the bills, charges, bad cheques, and taxes.The CRA shut down the public access portion of its website last week.The website was reopened over the weekend, but the CRA alerted police that it had confirmed a breach on Friday.The Heartbleed bug is caused by a flaw in OpenSSL software, which is commonly used on the internet to provide security and privacy.In that six-hour window between when the bug was disclosed publicly and they shut down their servers … it could have been the 900 people who accessed the server in that window.Not sure how the CRA came up with 900 [but] if there were some nefarious hackers using it to steal info there could still be repercussions to come.

Smith & Wesson, Ruger quit California over stamping requirement
Jan 26, 2014 - 3:28 AM - by gone

A new gun law proponents say helps law enforcement has driven Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger out of California, and affirmed the suspicions of firearms rights advocates that the measure is really about making handguns obsolete.

The two companies have announced they will stop selling their wares in the nation's most populous state rather than try to comply with a law that requires some handguns to have technology that imprints a tiny stamp on the bullet so it can be traced back to the gun. The companies, and many gun enthusiasts, say so-called "microstamping" technology is unworkable in its present form and can actually impair a gun's performance.

“Smith & Wesson does not and will not include microstamping in its firearms,” the Springfield, Mass.,-based manufacturer said in a statement. “A number of studies have indicated that microstamping is unreliable, serves no safety purpose, is cost prohibitive and, most importantly, is not proven to aid in preventing or solving crimes.”

“The microstamping mandate and the company’s unwillingness to adopt this so-called technology will result in a diminishing number of Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistols available for purchase by California residents.”

Southport, Conn.-based Sturm Ruger also announced this month that they will also stop selling their guns in California due to the microstamping law.

Firearm microstamping, or ballistic imprinting, works by engraving a microscoping marking onto the tip of the firing pin. When the gun is fired, it leaves an imprint, usually of a serial number, on the bullet casings. The telltale mark theoretically allows law enforcement investigators to trace the bullet to the registered gun owner. California’s law is the first in the nation to be implemented and was originally signed into effect in October 2007, but not implemented until recently. Several other states are considering similar measures.

Law-enforcement is exempt from microstamping requirements.

Critics say tracing a bullet to a registered gun owner does little to fight crime, since criminals often kill with stolen handguns. Many believe tracing bullets was never the real intent of the law in the first place.

"This is the latest attempt to undermine the Second Amendment in California by politicians with little to no knowledge of firearms, who seek to impose their liberal values upon those who choose to protect their families with the constitutional right to own a handgun," said Chuck Michel, West Coast Counsel for the National Rifle Association, an Adjunct Professor at Chapman University and author of the book

Starbucks Execs: Storing Unsecured Logins on Phones is OK
Jan 17, 2014 - 12:53 PM - by US_Cybernaut
The Starbucks Card app (the most widely used mobile-payment app in the U.S., with an estimated 10 million users) displays a bar-code that baristas can scan to identify the customer and charge a purchase to their pre-paid Starbucks Card stored-value accounts. It also stores all the customer’s pertinent information on the phone itself, in clear text, with no additional security requirement, meaning anyone who steals a phone (or even grabs one left on a table while the owner is in line or in the restroom) can read the login data without entering a PIN, password, or any other form of authentication data, according to an Computerworld story Jan. 15.
