  1. According to a report on Tuesday morning from ZDNet, Amazon has informed some customers that their account passwords may have been compromised. The company has yet to confirm any details to the media, but it said in an email that users’ passwords may have been stored or transmitted insecurely, potentially allowing hackers to intercept the data....https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/amazon-suffers-potential-password-leak-unknown-number-accounts-144013657.html


  2. If you go on Facebook talking about how you got trashed last weekend, you might be trashing your credit score. Credit rating agency FICO is adding new ways to assess creditworthiness, including looking at smartphone records and information volunteered on social sites such as Facebook.

    Although it doesn't use data from social sites, TransUnion is also using new alternative sources such as payday lending information and club memberships to expand its data pool... http://news.investors.com/business/101615-775779-credit-agencies-scout-facebook-other-social-sites.htm?ven=yahoocp,yahoo&src=aurlled






  3.  

    Had a Schwann's acct years ago and they had some decent selections. It worked great at the time since I was working two jobs, my better half had a tough schedule and we were dealing with 3 kid sport schedules. They also offered flexible drop off times and we had a chest freezer in the garage so the driver could stock it if we were not home.

     

    OT: Every year at Christmas they would sell Currier and Ives tins filled with a pretty decent French Vanilla ice cream. Much better than fruitcake...

     

    This is a long shot but is there a personal chef service type of business offering in their town?

    Thanks for the comments.

     

    Schwan's doesn't even deliver in this town, so I'm paying about $20 shipping per order (items totaling > $100), which is perfectly fine.

     

    There are a couple of people in their town who cook meals for others, but not in people's homes and they don't deliver (customers pick up their meals themselves).

     

    CV a group i work with has used local taxi & car service's to deliver holiday meals to elderly vets. That might be a option for you if this type business is in there town.


  4. The FBI posted an online advisory about vulnerabilities with new chip-enabled credit cards, but then removed the message on Friday, less than a day later, following concerns from U.S. bankers that back chip cards.

    The original online post was headlined, "New microchip-enabled credit cards may still be vulnerable to exploitation by fraudsters," and was replaced by a "page not found" message as of mid-day Friday. The American Bankers Association contacted the FBI on Thursday urging it to revise and clarify its original post, which was in the form of a public service announcement (PSA), to reduce confusion over the use of PINs with chip cards, an ABA official told Computerworld on Friday.....http://www.computerworld.com/article/2991473/financial-it/fbi-takes-down-alert-on-chip-credit-cards-after-bankers-complain.html http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/the-fbi-warns-of-weaknesses-in-chip-and-sign-credit-card-systems/ar-AAfhog7


  5. T-Mobile Customers’ Information Compromised by Data Breach at Credit Agency Experian says 15 million U.S. consumers may have had their information compromised A data breach at credit-reporting agency Experian PLC compromised the personal information of millions of T-Mobile US Inc. customers, the latest major leak of confidential data to hit corporate America.

    The breach, disclosed by the companies Thursday, covered about 15 million people. It included information on T-Mobile subscribers, former customers as well as consumers that applied for service or device financing at the wireless carrier in roughly the last two years.
    The exposed data included names, addresses and birth dates as well as encrypted Social Security numbers, driver’s license or passport numbers. The companies said credit card or banking information wasn’t compromised.....http://www.wsj.com/articles/experian-data-breach-may-have-compromised-roughly-15-million-consumers-1443732359

  6. The New York State Department of Financial Services took possession of the $178 million Montauk Credit Union in New York City Friday 9/18/2015 and appointed the NCUA as conservator, according to a prepared statement.

     

    Montauk CU, one of the four New York cooperatives that serves the taxi medallion industry, posted a net income loss of $2 million at the end of the second quarter of 2015, according to NCUA financial performance reports. At the end of the second quarter of 2014, the credit union showed a net income gain of $1.6 million. In addition to Montauk CU, three other New York-based credit unions – the $271 million, 3,000-member LOMTO Federal Credit Union in Woodside; the $2.1 billion, 24,000-member Melrose Credit Union in Briarwood and the $692 million, 3,800-member Progressive Credit Union in New York City – have seen their income decrease and provisions for loan losses increase in 2015 as the transportation industry they serve has struggled to survive economic and technological changes...http://www.cutimes.com/2015/09/18/montauk-credit-union-conserved

  8. It's too bad the Master Key isn't better because it's really the best shotgun breaching option. Gives the breacher immediate engagement options.

     

    The problem with a shotgun breach is the breacher is always exposed to the cone of death on an inward swinging door(which most are). Hence the reason we switched to sledges, det cord or water bags.

    Kman these are being tested by Socom its called the SIX12 by Crye PrecisionIMG_9217.jpg
