‘Political stunt?’: CNN accuses Russia of infiltrating Trump campaign through his advisers

Russian special services tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the US presidential elections. That's according to the latest revelation by CNN. Citing anonymous officials, the channel suggested Page didn't know he'd been used by Moscow's agents. Page says the allegations are groundless, and even calls the initial report on alleged Russian meddling "a political stunt."

Federal 'Witch Hunt' Against Trump Twitter Critic Sparks Investigation

Inspector General John Roth informed Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) in a letter Friday that his office is conducting a probe to determine whether behavior by federal officials concerning the Twitter account was “improper in any way” or if there was an “abuse of authority.”  U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which is overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, last month served Twitter with a summons demanding the identity of the operator of the account for “Alt Immigration” – @ALT_uscis (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is part of CPB). The account is one of dozens that sprang up after Donald Trump’s inauguration purporting to be the rebellious voice of truth from within various federal agencies or from agency supporters. Twitter in turn sued CBP and DHS to block the action, and the demand was dropped.  We're glad Twitter is pushing back. We'll be going to court to defend this user's right to anonymous speech. https://t.co/tqj5XrNvgn— ACLU National (@ACLU) April 6, 2017 Wyden, who called the action against Twitter a “witch hunt,” complained in a letter to the CBP commissioner that he was concerned the summons represented a “disturbing threat to free speech and whistleblower protections” — and he called for an investigation. Roth, who received a copy of Wyden’s letter, wrote to the senator that DHS had determined, at CBP’s request, that no classified information was released via [email protected]_uscis Twitter account. Roth said his own office was unaware of the effort to unmask the identity of the Twitter account holder until officials read about it in the media. “We strive to ensure that our work does not have a chilling effect on individuals’ free speech rights,” wrote Roth, who emphasized that his office “is not ... and will not investigate, any alleged misconduct on the part of the @ALT_uscis account owner relating to his or her use of the Twitter account.” His office is, however, investigating whether CBP’s conduct concerning the Twitter account was “improper in any way, including whether CBP abused its authority in issuing the .... summons to Twitter.” Roth added that his office is “also reviewing potential broader misuse of summons authority.” Wyden could not immediately be reached for comment. We want to thank @twitter and @aclu for standing up for the right of free anonymous speech. Thank you resistance for standing up for us. https://t.co/6PdwZIJ2xP— ALT Immigration (@ALT_uscis) April 7, 2017 type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=58e6a5a9e4b0585892c9c5ab,58eabbdee4b058f0a0300ae5 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

If You Have This Name, You May Be Three Times Less Likely To Get A Job Interview

A few days after Riyadh Mohammed arrived in America in 2011, an acquaintance pulled him aside and told him, “You might be offended by what I say, but I’m giving you this advice to help you.’” The advice given was this: Don’t use Mohammed in your legal name in the United States. Mohammed is an Iraqi-American investigative journalist who came to the United States as a refugee. He had used the name “Riyadh Mohammed” as his byline since 2008, and was hesitant about changing it.  But looking back years later, Mohammed says he wishes he had taken the friend’s advice.  “If it was up to me, I would have never kept that name, because of all the complications,” Mohammed said. “It’s affected my dating life, my possibilities of finding an apartment, my career, everything.” The name Mohammed, which translates to “the most praised one,” is a popular name for Muslim families. It honors the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Parents give it to their children as a blessing, or to continue family tradition. It can be a first, last or middle name. The global spread of Islam has produced various spellings, like Mohammed and Muhammad. A number of famous people have the name ― from the boxing legend Muhammad Ali to the Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad. But, due to the rise of anti-Muslim sentiment in Western countries, Mohammed is not always an easy name to live with. In an effort to dispel some of the stigma around the name, Riyadh and 14 other Mohammeds from different walks of life are participating in a photo project. Titled, “I am Mohammed,” the project shares the stories of people of different ages, genders and nationalities who bear the prophet’s name. The three curators of the exhibit ― Aanjalie Collure, a Sri Lankan-Canadian global health and human rights advocate, Jeffrey Ingold, a British-Canadian working in corporate PR, and Narmeen Haider, a Muslim Pakistani-American currently working in global health and development ― were all interested in tackling anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment in the West.  “Like many other Muslims in America, I was devastated after [President Donald Trump’s] election. It resurfaced all this anxiety I had about my family’s safety and security,” Haider told The Huffington Post. “With almost two decades of Islamophobic rhetoric in [America], people automatically think of the T word when they see a Muslim.”  Several academic studies and social experiments have helped shed light on what it’s like to apply for jobs with a Muslim-sounding name. As part of an experiment earlier this year, the BBC responded to 100 job opportunities with resumes from two fake candidates ― one named Adam Henton and the other named Mohammed Allam. Although the two candidates had the similar levels of skills and experience, Adam got 12 interviews, while Mohammed got four.  The results suggested that a person with a Muslim-sounding name on his or her resume is three times less likely to be called for an interview.  A 2015 report from the U.K. think tank Demos found that British Muslims are “less proportionately represented in the managerial and professional occupations than any other religious group,” and also “disproportionately likely to be unemployed and economically inactive.” The researchers attributed this to differences in demographics, educational attainment, socioeconomic characteristics, and other factors. But part of it was also due to “discrimination in recruitment processes.” The think tank recommended having larger employers move towards accepting anonymous resumes.  In the United States, researchers have found that identifying as Muslim on resumes may lead to fewer job opportunities. In studies published in 2013 and 2014, researchers at the University of Connecticut sent out fake resumes for entry-level jobs posted on Career Builder, some of which included religious mentions. They found that the resumes that identified the applicant as Muslim in some way ― by suggesting the job seeker was part of a Muslim campus club, for example ― were much less likely than other religious groups to elicit a response from potential employers. For Riyadh, stereotypes about people with the name “Mohammed” reflect a lack of understanding and education. “There are a little more than 3 million American Muslims. And probably a lot of them with the name Muhammad. They can’t all be terrorists, or suspected of terrorism,” he said. “There must be a campaign in the education system, in the media, to explain [that] to Americans.” The curators of the exhibit hope that sharing the stories of these Mohammeds will provide a counter-narrative to the Islamophobia prevalent in the United States. “My hope is that through this exhibition, we can show that Muslims are just like other people – they have complicated lives, exciting careers, and everyday challenges,” Haider said. Scroll down to view images and stories from “I am Mohammed.” The exhibit opens in New York City on Saturday.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

A moment that changed me: when the doctor told me I was psychotic | Anonymous

After my diagnosis, I faced the stigma of a condition wrongly associated with serial killers and film villains. But understanding psychosis helped me manage itI was sitting in my living room along with a social worker, mental health nurse and my baffled parents the day the doctor told me I was “psychotic”. It felt like a dream. Just a week before, suffering from anxiety and depression, I had taken leave from the training course I was on. A week of shuffling around the house followed.Like many people, I was determined to “escape” my unhappiness in any way possible, but thankfully lacked the conviction to do anything about it. Soon I became convinced I had committed some sort of sin that I could never articulate: TV programmes and songs fed a narrative in my mind which was impossible to write down now – it simply made no sense. It involved God, the devil, my boss and the professionals around me, all of whom were part of some major conspiracy reminiscent of The Truman Show. These delusions were common signs of psychosis, a condition that can stem from deep depression. Continue reading...

Trump Intervention Helps Free American Aid Worker Detained For 3 Years In Egypt

WASHINGTON, April 20 (Reuters) - An Egyptian-American woman detained in Egypt for nearly three years on human trafficking charges was flown back to the United States on Thursday on a U.S. military plane, accompanied by a top White House official, a senior administration official said. Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian who holds U.S. citizenship, was acquitted by a Cairo court on Sunday along with seven others who had worked with street children. Hijazi was released from jail on Tuesday, having been held for nearly three years. She was flown to Joint Base Andrews, the U.S. military airfield on the outskirts of Washington. President Donald Trump had privately asked Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to help out in the case when Sisi visited the White House on April 3, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump did not mention the case publicly when he met with Sisi.  U.S. officials had raised Hijazi’s case with the Egyptians soon after Trump took office on Jan. 20, the official said. Hijazi was accompanied on the flight by Dina Powell, the deputy White House national security adviser for strategy. Powell had been in the region traveling with U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis. Hijazi, 30, founded Belady, a non-governmental organization that promotes a better life for street children. She had been in custody for 33 months in violation of Egyptian law, which states that the maximum period for pretrial detention is 24 months. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Strange Carter Page Saga: More Heat Than Light

Daniel McCarthy Politics, Americas Were it not for the violent emotions that Trump excites among his critics, this would hardly be a topic of hot coverage. Imagine a country where the internal security service uses a dossier compiled by a foreign spy to justify an investigation into a controversial political figure. It sounds un-American—like the Stasi, perhaps, using dirt dug up by some KGB agent to embarrass a dissident. But today, the spy is British, the security service is the FBI and the target is an associate of Donald Trump. As in the old days, however, investigative innuendo has a funny way of leaking into the press—convicting in the court of appearances individuals who have yet to be so much as charged with anything in a court of law. The dossier in question was compiled by Christopher Steele, a former MI6 operative, as part of an opposition research campaign begun by anti-Trump Republicans and later carried on by Democrats. It accuses Trump and several other figures connected with him of having improper dealings with Moscow and being compromised by Russian intelligence. According to a CNN report this week, the FBI used Steele’s material late last year in asking a FISA court for permission to wiretap one former Trump adviser, Carter Page. Anonymous “officials familiar with the process” told CNN that the dossier could only have been employed if the bureau “had corroborated the information through its own investigation,” though the same unnamed officials “would not say what or how much was corroborated.” Page, for his part, told the network, “I look forward to the Privacy Act of 1974 lawsuit that I plan to file in response to the civil rights violations by Obama administration appointees last year.” The facts are worth reviewing. Page has not been charged with a crime. He has only been monitored as part of an ongoing FBI investigation. That investigation may ultimately find that wrongdoing took place—or it may conclude that there are no grounds to indict anyone. Whenever a trial becomes a press sensation, it’s usually clear that a crime was committed: there’s a body, for example. Not here: there’s no body, and no trial, just a search for evidence. A FISA authorization requires that there already be some material to justify the bureau’s suspicion—but that’s as far as it goes. Read full article

Bill O'Reilly Is Out At Fox News

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Bill O’Reilly will no longer be employed at Fox News, the network’s parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement Wednesday. The decision comes after allegations of him sexually harassing female colleagues prompted protests outside network headquarters and a mass exodus from advertisers. “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox New Channel,” the statement read.  O’Reilly had said mid-April that he was taking a vacation. The official departure from Fox is an unceremonious end for the host, who had anchored the top-rated cable news show “The O’Reilly Factor” since its inception more than 20 years ago. His stunning exit mirrors that of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who launched Fox News in 1996 and abruptly left the network last summer amid widespread sexual harassment allegations.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson will take over O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot next Monday, Fox confirmed. “The O’Reilly Factor” will continue this week with guest hosts Dana Perino on Wednesday and Thursday, and Greg Gutfeld on Friday. Following a bombshell New York Times report earlier this month indicating O’Reilly and Fox News have paid around $13 million in settlements to address complaints brought by five of his former female colleagues, advertisers began fleeing the show. Within days, more than 50 companies announced they would no longer air spots during the show.  New York magazine reported that Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, had advocated for keeping O’Reilly on board, while sons James and Lachlan had pushed for his departure.  Though 21st Century Fox had pledged to clean up Fox News following the Ailes scandal, the Times revealed that the company continued to privately settle lawsuits with O’Reilly accusers and even renewed the host’s contract, reportedly at more than $20 million a year.  The entertainment and media giant presumably stuck with O’Reilly because he has been a cash cow for Fox News. He’s the linchpin of the network’s primetime lineup and his top-rated show is major draw when it comes to negotiating fees to carry the channel with cable and satellite providers. And “The O’Reilly Factor” brought in around $111 million in advertising dollars over a three-year period.  But advertisers quickly began to feel the pressure from consumers following the Times report and allegations from a sixth woman, Wendy Walsh, who held a press conference two days after the story was published online.  Mercedes-Benz was the first to announce its departure from the show’s ad schedule. “The allegations are disturbing and, given the importance of women in every aspect of our business, we don’t feel this is a good environment in which to advertise our products right now,” spokeswoman Donna Boland said.  “Fox News was forced to act,” Angelo Carusone, president of progressive watchdog Media Matters and lead organizer behind the @StopOReilly Twitter campaign, said Wednesday. “Without advertisers, Bill O’Reilly’s show was no longer commercially viable. Fox News had no choice but to fire O’Reilly. Accountability came from the outside, not from within. Fox News deserves no accolades, only scorn for the industrial-scale harassment they have forced their employees to endure.” In initial responses to the Times’ report that O’Reilly inappropriately propositioned women and retaliated against them when they turned him down, both he and the network issued statements saying no accusers ever called Fox’s internal hotline, an 800 number employees can use to anonymously report concerns.  Following the Times’ report, 21st Century Fox announced Sunday that law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison would conduct an investigation into the claims of Walsh, a former guest on O’Reilly’s show who accused him of reneging on a promise to get her a contributor deal after she rebuffed his advances.  On Tuesday, civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom said that an African-American former clerical worker at Fox News, who remains anonymous, had claimed O’Reilly leered at her and called her “hot chocolate.” Bloom, who also represents Walsh, submitted a request for a second, independent probe to the New York State Division of Human Rights. That request comes as the U.S. attorney’s office in New York is already investigating 21st Century Fox over whether the company properly notified investors about payments made to Ailes’ accusers.  The recent allegations against O’Reilly aren’t the first time he was dogged by claims of sexual harassment. In 2004, O’Reilly settled a lawsuit filed by former Fox News producer Andrea Mackris, which contended that he spoke to her about sexual fantasies and masturbation.   And Fox News has faced an advertiser boycott before. In a campaign led by the racial justice organization Color of Change in 2009, advertisers began leaving former host Glenn Beck’s show after he called then-President Barack Obama a “racist” with a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”  But O’Reilly and Fox News weren’t able to weather this latest scandal, which occurred in a different media environment.  “We weren’t in the same type of social media climate that we are in now,” Rashad Robinson, the executive director of Color of Change, told The Huffington Post earlier this month. “The speed and pace of people’s interest is different because of the participation age ... Companies are hearing from their consumers directly through Twitter.”   But Robinson is skeptical of O’Reilly’s ousting indicating any culture change at Fox News. “While today is an important victory, it hardly absolves Fox News of its decades of racism and sexism,” he said in a statement Wednesday. “Fox News didn’t clean up its act after Roger Ailes was fired, and it won’t just because O’Reilly was fired. We’ll continue to demand accountability from the Murdochs.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Nasal tampons, black alerts and Peppa Pig: junior doctors confess all

Ahead of a Channel 4 documentary on the lives of the UK’s 60,000 junior doctors, four of them tell us about the fear, joy and exhaustion of life on the NHS frontlineFrom as young as 23, junior doctors work in every department of a hospital, from the corridors of A&E to the operating theatres. A new Channel 4 series, Confessions of a Junior Doctor, explores the story of these NHS frontliners as they deal with unprecedented difficulties for public healthcare. Four of them, writing anonymously, describe these early years. Related: 'I don't think anything can prepare you for seeing a patient die' Continue reading...

Women Dominate College Majors That Lead to Lower-Paying Work

The pay gap between men and women in the U.S. — the 80-ish cents on the dollar that the average woman earns for every dollar the average man does — has narrowed at such a slow pace that it would be unfair to glaciers to call it glacial. When people talk about the pay gap, what this phrase typically means is that a woman is being paid less than a man for doing the same work. A well-known example is Lilly Ledbetter, who had worked in a tire factory for almost 20 years when a colleague left her an anonymous note revealing she’d been earning thousands of dollars less than men in the same position. But these kinds of pay gaps — same role, same experience, same firm — account for only a portion of the 20% pay gap between men and women, a gap that’s much worse for women of color. Large chunks of the gap can be accounted for by differences like industry and role. And at the root of these differences, according to a new research report by Glassdoor, could be college majors. Examining 46,934 resumes shared on Glassdoor by people who graduated between 2010 and 2017, the researchers looked at each person’s college major and their post-college jobs in the five years after graduation. They then estimated the median pay for each of those jobs (also using Glassdoor data) for employees with five years of experience or less. Their key finding: “Many college majors that lead to high-paying roles in tech and engineering are male dominated, while majors that lead to lower-paying roles in social sciences and liberal arts tend to be female dominated, placing men in higher-paying career pathways, on average.” When I spoke with Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, he explained that one of his hopes with this research was to give all college students more insight into which majors pay the most, so that they can make informed decisions about which major they choose. He’s also hoping that “by showing young women the facts about what they could potentially earn, more of them might choose a physics or engineering major,” and that more of them will persist in those majors even if they’re the only woman in some of their courses.  That is a noble goal, but it’s one that I was skeptical would work. In our society, maleness and prestige often go together. Jobs that are unconsciously coded male have more prestige and pay than jobs that are coded female. This is why a custodian or a janitor (usually a man) gets paid more than a maid or a “cleaning lady” (categorically female — have you ever heard of a “cleaning gentleman”?). And it’s one of many reasons that male factory workers who get laid off don’t rush into “pink-collar” jobs — not only do these jobs pay less, but they also are inescapably lower prestige. Corporate America is not immune to these trends: HR, once considered the most glamorous department to work in, has since become highly feminized, and must now fight for respect at the C-suite table. A series of studies have shown just how tightly gender, prestige, and pay are tangled. Researchers have found that the pay gap is not as simple as women being pushed into lower-paying jobs. In effect, it is the other way around: Certain jobs pay less because women take them. Wages in biology and design were higher when the fields were predominantly male; as more women became biologists and designers, pay dropped. The opposite happened in computing, where early programmers were female. Today, that field is one of the most predominantly male — and one of the highest paying. The wage gap remains the widest at the top of the income ladder, where jobs tend to be male dominated. I suspect that our assumptions about what type of work is skilled or specialized is also subtly gendered, although I’m not aware of any research examining this specific question. But why do we assume that STEM subjects are “harder” than subjects that are more person- or language-oriented? Aren’t human beings just as complex as code? When I posed my hypothesis to Chamberlain, he was skeptical. He pointed out that if you write bad code, the program probably just won’t work. Human beings are less rigid, or just have lower standards. When it comes to writing, for example, “many people are willing to accept mediocre work.” (Sigh.) There’s also the pesky issue of market forces and the skills that society values. Music may be a highly technical field, but it’s a low-paying one. Nonetheless, the Glassdoor data does show that even when women and men study the same subject, women sort into lower-paying jobs when they get out of school. For example, among female biology majors, the top post-college jobs are lab technician, pharmacy technician, and sales associate. Among the male graduates, the most common jobs are lab tech, data analyst, and manager. Since the latter jobs are higher paying, the pay gap persists even among people who majored in biology. The data shows similar gaps for mathematics majors: Among both genders, data analyst and generic analyst roles were popular. But men were much more likely to be found in sexy data scientist roles, and so the average male math major earns $60,000 a year in his first five years out of school, while the average female math major earns only $49,182. Other research has shown that more of the gender wage gap comes from within-industry gaps than between-industry gaps. When I asked Chamberlain why women aren’t getting those higher-paying industry jobs, despite their qualifications, he said his data didn’t indicate a reason. It could be driven by the behavior of the job seeker. Perhaps men feel pressured to find and take the highest-paying job they can get, while women think holistically about work-life balance and flexibility. Perhaps companies are fast-tracking men into prestigious, higher-paying roles. Or perhaps companies are being too narrow in what they’re looking for. For instance, if you’re trying to hire a data scientist and you tell your recruiter to look only at statistics majors, you’ve immediately narrowed your pool of applicants to mostly men. If companies looked at skills rather than credentials, they might find that there are women trained in sociology, biology, or anthropology who are just as handy with a spreadsheet. One curious wrinkle in the data is in the areas where people aren’t doing anything with their major. Many of these people seem to be earning less than the people who are making use of their degree. Take kinesiology majors. Despite these students studying a somewhat scientific topic (the movement of the human body), which ought to lead to remunerative work in the booming health care industry, what Glassdoor’s data shows is that a significant proportion of them aren’t going on to become physical therapists. They’re becoming low-paid personal trainers, coaches, or waiters. This leads to a small reverse pay gap: Women who major in kinesiology make, on average, $2,000 more a year than men do, because they are more likely to take the physical therapy jobs that make use of the skills they learned in school. Music majors show a similar pattern. “Most women go into music in some way — the most common job was audio engineer and music teacher,” said Chamberlain. “[But] the men who majored in music often did nothing related to music. They worked as low-paid landscapers, or sales associates.” Why would these men opt to not use their degree? Perhaps because “music teacher” has a stereotype of being female, Chamberlain speculated. Male music majors earn less than their female counterparts, in large part because they’re not using their knowledge. (Depressingly, one reason the gap has narrowed or reversed at the low end of the income spectrum is not only that some women are earning more than their mothers did; it’s also that men are earning less, on average, than their fathers did.) It’s nice to think that some young woman out there will seize on these findings and decide to persist in her dream of majoring in physics, math, or engineering. But I am pessimistic about that. I suspect that if we suddenly found ourselves in a world where 90% of mechanical engineers were female, that work would then be looked down on as low creativity and low prestige, much as software engineering was perceived when it was heavily female. While I find research about the wage gap endlessly fascinating, I also find it frustrating. So much of the debate has descended into a muddle of details: It’s really a motherhood penalty. It’s driven by women working fewer hours. It’s the result of personal choices. It’s because women don’t negotiate. I don’t mean to sound dismissive; the details do matter. But focusing on them is like focusing on the swarm of gnats in front of your face and missing the huge, ugly alligator lurking just beyond. The nasty truth that underlies all these details is very simple: We just don’t value women as much as we value men. And until that changes, women will never get paid equally for their work.

Украинские хакеры выложили в сеть переписку представителей партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина"

БРЮССЕЛЬ, 16 марта. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Денис Дубровин/. Украинская ячейка международной сети Anonymous и группа хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", выложили в интернет электронную переписку представителей руководства украинских партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина". Архивы с перепиской содержат сообщения, которыми обменивались региональные лидеры партий в Киеве, Львове, Донецке, Харькове и Луганске. В сообщениях, в частности, обсуждается организация силовых провокаций на Восточной Украине с участием активистов "Правого сектора". Никаких независимых подтверждений этой информации, добытой незаконным путем, не существует. Группа украинских хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", в ночь с субботы на воскресенье обрушила основные информационные ресурсы НАТО, которые более 12 часов работали с серьезными перебоями. Их функционирование восстановилось в полной мере только после того, как хакеры распространили заявление "о прекращении DDoS-атаки на ресурсы НАТО". Пока неизвестно, смогли ли эксперты по киберобороне НАТО установить источник атаки и будет ли альянс выдвигать судебные претензии хакерам. Распределенный отказ в обслуживании, известный под английской аббревиатурой DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), - это один из наиболее распространенных методов хакерского нападения, цель которого - перегрузить системы огромным количеством запросов, автоматически направляемых одновременно с большого числа компьютеров.

Хакеры Anonymous напали на Израиль

Сайты правительственных организаций Израиля подвергаются кибератакам хакеров, передает Associated Press со ссылкой на израильские СМИ.Представители организации Anonymous сообщили в социальной сети Twitter о начале "операции Израиль". Как стало известно, атакам подверглись сайты министерства обороны и министерства образования Израиля, а также целый ряд сайтов израильских банков.Утверждается, что ни один сайт не прекратил своей работы, и все атаки были до сих пор успешно отражены.По словам представителей Anonymous, атаки на сайты правительства Израиля являются ответом на авиаудар, нанесенный израильскими военно-воздушными силами по сектору Газа 3 апреля 2013г.Напомним, в ноябре 2012г. Израиль провел в секторе Газа, находящемся под контролем палестинского движения "Хамас", восьмидневную военную операцию "Облачный столп". Конфликт завершился перемирием, достигнутым при посредничестве Египта.Источник: РБК.руИ в дополнение:«Anonymous» раскрыли сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов Моссада: вычислить израильского террориста теперь может каждыйХакерская организация Anonymous взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада»Несколько дней назад хакерская организация «Anonymous», использующая в качестве своего символа знаменитую «маску Гая Фокса», взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада», раскрыв сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов, часть из которых отнесены к категории «киллеров».
