The congregants and the #rabbi edited the building in an orderly fashion and sang #defiantly out in the parking lot while the police did their thing.

Such actions, like those emails, need to be denounced. There is never a justified reason to show #hate or to send a #threat to a human being.

UK's Floating Migrant Prison

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHbBlS9fao4&ab_channel=red.

The UK is using increasingly inhumane policies against migrants. The most recent example is a floating barge called Bibby Stockholm which has been compared to a floating prison and is being used as a detention facility for migrants. We spoke to the volunteer-run migrant charity Care4Calais, putting the migrant barge in the context of the UK's anti-migration offensive. Joe Cullinane of Care4Calais argues that the UK government's demonization of migrants is being used to distract attention from larger domestic crises.

Pentagon investigating Air Force engineer’s ‘critical compromise’ of Air Force, FBI, state & local law enforcement communications

The Pentagon is investigating a “critical compromise” of communications within the Air Force, after an engineer at Arnold Air Force Base in Tennessee allegedly gained unauthorized access to radio communications technology affecting 17 Air Force facilities from home, Forbes reported.

The 48-year-old engineer, whose name Forbes did not disclose, reportedly took home nearly $90,000 worth of government radio technologies and gained “#unauthorized #administrator #access” to the Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command (AETC).

In a raid on the engineer’s home, law enforcement also found a computer running a software that “contained the entire Arnold Air Force Base (AAFB) communications system,” as well as evidence of possible access to the #FBI’s and several #Tennessee #state #agencies’ communications, according to a search warrant obtained by Forbes.

The engineer also had flash drives containing “administrative #passwords and electronic system #keys” for the #AETC radio network, “local #law #enforcement #radio programming files,” and files that warned they were government property and confidential.

A co-worker had reported the engineer on two occasions over “#insider #threat indicators” and his unauthorized possession of equipment, according to Forbes.

Tennessee Speaker appoints conspiracy theorist to develop state social studies standards

#Laurie #Cardoza-#Moore, known for holding extremist views and promoting conspiracy theories, has called "U.S. history #textbooks" currently used in classrooms the "#greatest #national #security #threat to the United States."

Last week, #Tennessee #House #Speaker Cameron #Sexton (R) announced that he had appointed Cardoza-Moore to serve on the Tennessee #Standards #Recommendation Committee to oversee “#Social #Studies materials being reviewed for use in classrooms #statewide.”

With her new appointment, Cardoza-Moore will have the power to “submit final recommendations for [Social Studies] standards to the State Board.”

“Who is this guy threatening to execute me? & how does he have so many followers?” #Swalwell tweeted, posting DM..acct that appears to belong to former 49ers/Jaguars Bruce Miller.

Message read, “Almost time!!! Would you rather Guantanamo or just execution,” followed by several laughing emojis & ending w “f—– traitor.”

Um, NO👇

"The acct that sent the original message responded, claiming that the message was a “harmless game of ‘would you rather.’” #terrorism #threat

@quikkie Somehow VMWare Hub is linked in as a ?container? to the Knox Security service that is on Samsung. The Factory Reset using the ADB didn't get rid of the Hub software. It is a pretty good #Infosec #Andriod #Persistent #Threat. I certainly hope that #VMWare has thoroughly tested their Work Profile software, seems like a good entry point for #Redteam or #Blackhat #Cyberattack (or third party compromise). People have been looking at holes in the software and have found some already (may have been patched)

DevOps threat matrix

At Microsoft, we have conducted extensive research into the techniques that malicious adversaries may use to attack DevOps environments. We categorized these techniques into their related tactics and mapped these into a threat matrix. This mapping aims to help defenders to better understand the landscape and possible attacker actions, so defenders are better equipped to defend against each technique and protect DevOps environments.

As in previous years, our dataset consists of 50 significant #vulnerabilities that were disclosed and/or exploited in 2022. The majority of these (56%) were widely exploited by a range of #threat actors, from #ransomware groups and #botnet operators to low-skilled internet attackers.

You might be a victim of inadvertent denial of service attack from Mastodon?

Blocking the Mastodon user agent is a workaround ...

Anyone out there on #InfoSec #Mastodon who I should be following?

I work in #EDR and #network #threat detection #software focused on #Apple’s platforms primarily.

I want to follow anyone furthering work on security within Apple platforms but also the wider community.

This is a legitimate concern and issue. A 230kV #substation is probably a #transmission substation which is why it took out so many customers (40k approx).

This was a huge concern for us when I was at Southern Company.

Transformers that are the size and capacity to handle transmission voltages are usually manufactured in Europe and there could be a year or more lead time on getting a new one from when you order one.

Most #electric #utilities don't have spare transformers of these sizes just sitting around in their supply lots. That's a LOT of capital just sitting around doing nothing (and deteriorating).

There are mutual assistance #agreements in-place at most utilities. This is why you'll see a caravan of trucks heading north from utilities in the South after there's been a huge blizzard and a lot of power has been knocked out, and that mutual assistance agreement extends to "loaning" any compatible hardware and infrastructure if there's any available.

I'm sure #Duke has already been in contact with #GeorgiaPower, #TVA, and other nearby electric utilities to see if anyone has a spare (if Duke doesn't). Then, when Duke orders a replacement, they'll just have the transformer shipped directly to the #utility that loaned them the original replacement substation.

#Physical #threats to our electric #infrastructure are much more scary than any #cyber #threat from some #NationState.

Those transformers are filled with mineral oil and when that oil drains out the transformer overheats and fails.

I hope they catch the fuckers!

@TheRaDR - Rabbi, this is a critical fact. For first gen Americans whose parents entered the US during the 1940s, against a tide of #antisemitism, #racialbias remained a factor in #employment, #housing, and other aspects of society, for many decades. Even today, being called a #dirtyjew is not #verboten. #Hatred remains a #threat to #democracy #justice #civilliberties - #brothersandsisters cannot #succumb to the #manipulation of #media and #power that is used to #divide rather than #unite.
