    Snips from excerpt only website: His body was found in an extra-large North Face bag, a type which is favoured by explorers because of its 140 litres of storage capacity, durable material, double stitching, twin haul handles and locking zips.  Erotic asphyxiation is defined as the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. There were also rumours that Mr Williams was the victim of a professional ‘hit’.

    North Korea is so isolated that rather than bring the Internet to its hackers, it brings them to it—in a swank hotel in China. The luxury hotel that has been called a command post for North Korean hackers would make for a unique holiday getaway and give you lots to talk about back home. “Surprisingly Great Hotel - Clean, Tasteful.... and North Korean!” says a trip advisor review for the Chilbosan Hotel in Shenyang, China. For just $53, you get “a deluxe twin room,” including a North Korean breakfast considerably more substantial than those enjoyed by the vast majority of...

    PARIS — France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from the United States over new spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel said in separate reports published Monday that the US National Security Agency (NSA) secretly monitored tens of millions of phone communications in France and hacked into former Mexican president Felipe Calderon’s email account. The allegations come on top of revelations already leaked by Snowden and published in June that the US had a vast, secret program called PRISM to monitor Internet users, which French prosecutors...

    A lone hacker, referring to himself as Guccifer 2.0, is claiming responsibility for hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers.  While the DNC confirmed Tuesday its servers had indeed been breached, they and cyber security firm CrowdStrike indicated the Russian government was the likely culprit. The declaration by CrowdStrike, who is used to maintain the security of government servers, seems to have spurred the hacker known only as Guccifer 2.0 to reveal via the website Guccifer2.wordpress.com, that he/she was the source of the hack and not the Russians. In a blog post dated June 15th, Guccifer 2.0 states: I’m very...

A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words: "Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would...

    Though former Homeland Security Secretary and "voice of the plight of Muslims" Jeh Johnson didn't set up an illegal private email server like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did, he did use private, unsecured email to conduct official business and discuss sensitive matters, according to watchdog Judicial Watch. According to 216 pages of documents, Johnson was not the only one who used unsecured emails to conduct official business and disclose sensitive material.  Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Chief of Staff Christian Marrone, and General Counsel Stevan Bunnell were the other three employees of DHS who did the same thing....

    WASHINGTON -- Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email server, which stored some 55,000 pages of emails from her time as secretary of state, was the subject of attempted cyberattacks originating in China, South Korea and Germany after she left office in early 2013, according to a congressional document obtained by The Associated Press. While the attempts were apparently blocked by a "threat monitoring" product that Clinton's employees connected to her network in October 2013, there was a period of more than three months from June to October 2013 when that protection had not been installed, according to a letter from Sen....

Merkel said she did not know who was behind the strike, but added that “such cyber attacks, or hybrid conflicts as they are known in Russian doctrine, are now part of daily life and we must learn to cope with them”. “We...
