Cyber firms say Bangladesh hackers have attacked other Asian banks

By Dustin Volz and Jeremy Wagstaff WASHINGTON/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Hackers who stole $81 million from Bangladesh's central bank have been linked to an attack on a bank in the Philippines, in addition to the 2014 hack on Sony Pictures, cybersecurity company Symantec Corp said in a blog post. The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has blamed North Korea for the attack on Sony's Hollywood studio. A senior executive at Mandiant, the cybersecurity company investigating the Bank Bangladesh heist, also told Reuters the hackers had recently penetrated banks in Southeast Asia.



Push for encryption law falters despite Apple case spotlight

By Dustin Volz, Mark Hosenball and Joseph Menn WASHINGTON/ SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - After a rampage that left 14 people dead in San Bernardino, key U.S. lawmakers pledged to seek a law requiring technology companies to give law enforcement agencies a "back door" to encrypted communications and electronic devices, such as the iPhone used by one of the shooters. Draft legislation that Senators Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein, the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Intelligence Committee, had circulated weeks ago likely will not be introduced this year and, even if it were, would stand no chance of advancing, the sources said. Key among the problems was the lack of White House support for legislation in spite of a high-profile court showdown between the Justice Department and Apple Inc over the suspect iPhone, according to Congressional and Obama Administration officials and outside observers.



Facebook expands ads on third-party apps, websites to beyond users

(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said its customers' ads would now be visible on third-party apps and websites to everyone who has ever visited its website, and not just to users logged into its social networking service. In the first quarter, Facebook generated more than 80 percent of its $5.20 billion ad revenue from mobile ads.



Chinese users criticize Microsoft's push for Windows 10 upgrade: Xinhua

Chinese users of Microsoft products are criticizing the software company's push to get them to mandatorily upgrade their Windows operating systems, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Friday. Posts critical of Microsoft on microblog site Weibo relating to the Windows 10 upgrade, which Microsoft users must switch to, have grown to over 1.2 million in number, it said. "The company has abused its dominant market position and broken the market order for fair play," Xinhua quoted Zhao Zhanling, a legal adviser with the Internet Society of China, as saying.



'Replica' bottle from 'flipping' video fetches over $15,000 on eBay
A plastic water bottle touted as a replica of the one in a "bottle-flipping" video that went viral has fetched a closing bid of more than $15,000 on internet auction platform eBay. Videos posted to social media on Tuesday showed North Carolina teenager Mike Senatore flipping a partially full bottle of water onto a table during a school talent show. The video turned Senatore into a social media sensation.
Kuka's CEO says Chinese bidder could be a growth driver

By Jens Hack AUGSBURG, Germany (Reuters) - The chief executive of German industrial robot maker Kuka said on Friday he welcomed an impending 4.5 billion- euro ($5 bln) takeover bid from Chinese home appliance maker Midea . Asked at Kuka's annual meeting whether another prospective buyer might emerge with an alternative offer, Reuter said: "We have not actively looked for a partner until now, so the question of a white knight does not arise." Kuka is the latest and biggest German industrial technology group to be targeted by Chinese buyers as the world's second-largest economy makes the transition from a low-cost factory location into a high-tech industrial hub. China is the world's biggest market for industrial robots and robot sales in China rose 16 percent last year, driving global sales up 8 percent.



Bank hackers linked to wider campaign: researchers

The hackers behind the $81 million heist from the Bangladesh central bank have likely been involved in a series of attacks on the financial system, a US security firm has concluded. Researchers at the security firm Symantec also found that the malware used in the bank hacks shares code with that used in the massive 2014 cyberattack against Sony Pictures. Symantec said a bank in the Philippines has been attacked by the group that hit the Bangladesh central bank and attempted a heist from the Tien Phong Bank in Vietnam.

Jon Snow came back to life wearing UGG boots

The scene in which Jon Snow came back to life on Game of Thrones seemed to last six years, and turns out, it did! Based on Kit Harington's footwear in this set image, I'm going to assume that this scene began filming in 2010, the height of popularity for UGGs (according to Google Trends). How crazy is it that Kit Harington successfully kept the secret of Jon Snow's death and resurrection for six years? He didn't even blow it right near the end or anything.



These are the U.S. airlines most likely to lose or damage your luggage
One of the more frustrating aspects of air travel is when an airline loses or damages your luggage. Even in instances when an airline misplaces your luggage and successfully tracks it down to another city, retrieving it can often be an exercise in frustration. All the more so if your luggage contains items that you need immediately or if you're only on a short vacation and don't have the luxury of waiting a few days for your luggage to finally reach you. DON'T MISS:  The iPhone 7 might actually be in trouble In an effort to help you plan your next trip a bit better, TheActiveTimes recently directed us to an interesting list detailing which U.S. airlines are most likely to mishandle your luggage, which is to say lose or damage it. The data was initially reported in the May 2016 issue of the Air Travel Consumer Report which was put together by the Aviation Consumer Protection Division. So without further ado, below are the airlines that are most likely to cause you some luggage-related frustration. As evidenced via the chart below, ExpressJet Airlines, American Airlines, Skywest Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and Southwest are the top 5 offenders. For those curious, the methodology used in tabulating the data reads as follows: This section gives the rate of mishandled-baggage reports per 1,000 passengers by carrier and for the industry. The rate is based on the total number of reports each carrier received from passengers concerning lost, damaged, delayed or pilfered baggage... These baggage statistics are filed with DOT?s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (Office of Airline Information) on a monthly basis by U.S. airlines that have at least one percent of total domestic scheduled-service passenger revenues, plus any other airline that voluntarily submits the data. And while we're on the topic of luggage, if you've ever been curious as to what happens to your luggage once you check it in, the video below is a must-watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MBWZWyvMng

NASA's first expandable habitat failed to inflate on the ISS because of friction

NASA's attempt at deploying the first inflatable habitat on the International Space Station failed yesterday because the habitat hit some higher-than-expected forces during its expansion, NASA officials said during a press briefing today. NASA ended the attempt after two hours because the habitat, known as the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), failed to expand fully. Despite successfully completing the first three steps of the expansion, NASA hit a snag when it initiated manual expansion of the BEAM.



Asteroid mining company Planetary Resources kills 'space selfie' project

Space exploration company Planetary Resources is scuttling a Kickstarter-backed project that would let backers take "selfies" via space telescope, after getting funding for a separate project. It has offered a full refund to the over 17,600 people who pledged a total of $1.5 million during the campaign. "When we closed the campaign in June of 2013, we were confident that the tremendous enthusiasm from around the world would translate into continued financial support outside of the Kickstarter community to move our idea forward," wrote Planetary Resources president and CEO Chris Lewicki.

Senate sleuths focus on ex-State Department aide in Clinton email ?cover-up?

As Hillary Clinton seeks to rebound from a highly critical report from the State Department?s inspector general, Senate investigators and a conservative group are zeroing in on newly revealed evidence about the activities of a now retired State Department computer specialist in orchestrating what they charge was a ?cover-up? of the former secretary of state?s email practices. The role of John Bentel, whose identity as a key figure in the email probes was first reported by Yahoo News on Wednesday, is expected to be one focus of questioning today when Clinton?s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, is deposed in a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch over the State Department?s handling of Freedom of Information Act requests relating to Clinton?s emails, according to a source close to the case.

G7 told to act on antibiotics as dreaded superbug hits U.S.

By Kylie MacLellan and Ben Hirschler ISE-SHIMA, Japan/LONDON (Reuters) - Britain told the G7 industrial powers on Friday to do more to fight killer superbugs as the United States reported the first case in the country of a patient with bacteria resistant to a last-resort antibiotic. U.S. scientists said the infection in a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman "heralds the emergence of truly pan-drug resistant bacteria" because it could not be controlled even by colistin, an antibiotic reserved for "nightmare" bugs. In Japan, British Prime Minister David Cameron said leading countries needed to tackle resistance by reducing the use of antibiotics and rewarding drug companies for developing new medicines.

Obama uses Hiroshima visit as opportunity to urge no nukes

With an unflinching look back at a painful history, President Barack Obama stood on the hallowed ground of Hiroshima on Friday and declared it a fitting place to summon people everywhere to embrace the vision of a world without nuclear weapons. As the first American president to visit the city where the U.S. dropped the first atomic bomb, Obama came to acknowledge ? but not apologize for ? an act many Americans see as a justified end to a brutal war that Japan started with a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor. Some 140,000 people died after a U.S. warplane targeted wartime Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and 70,000 more perished in Nagasaki, where a second bomb was dropped three days later.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination.
