The Brazilian Beef Scandal and the Future of US Grass Fed Beef

By Dr. Mercola
Story at-a-glance

  • On June 22, 2017, the U.S. suspended imports of fresh beef from Brazil. Among the problems discovered during inspections were abscesses in the meat, thought to be due to infected vaccination sites
  • For the past two years, Brazil’s Federal Police have investigated corruption charges within the beef industry. Dozens of food inspectors have been arrested, and one meatpacker has been fined $3.2 billion
  • While traceability is key for food safety, country of origin labeling (COOL) was rejected by the World Trade Organization in 2014 for being “discriminatory.” Ranchers are now suing the USDA to reintroduce COOL

Millions of people lose their identities every year

Don’t be one of them.

Identity theft has been the top consumer complaint filed with the FTC for 15 years straight. Victims are spending an exorbitant amount of time and money dealing with it. The criminals are getting smarter. And they’re not going away. That’s why you need a company that’s more than a website. You need an established institution that understands all the potential threats, how to prevent them and how to restore any damage done.

This Dark Web Site Creates Robocalls to Steal People’s Credit Card PINs

A new service offers cybercriminals automated social engineering as a service.

In the internet underground, cybercriminals regularly exchange stolen credit card and debit card numbers and people’s personal information—data they usually refer to as “dumps.” But having someone’s credit card number isn’t great if you just want to get some cash. For that you’d need their ATM pin too.

That’s where a relatively new dark web service comes in. It claims to offer a simple, automated way to trick targets into giving up their PINs or other data such as mother’s maiden name. With this information, malicious hackers could access the target’s online banking accounts or other sensitive accounts.

GoFundMe “misuse” scams skyrocketing

By Kevin Downey, Komando.com – July 1, 2017

If you’re like most people, you’re compassionate and kind. Your heart aches when you see people suffering, especially children, veterans or families who are desperately trying to help save a loved one’s life or give them a proper burial.

You’ve probably handed over a few dollars when you’ve seen families collecting money on the side of the road. You’ve probably shed a tear when you saw people suffering after natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina.

It’s understandable that you want to help. Whether you’re donating thousands of dollars every year or the spare change you can scrounge up, you help as much as you can.

The internet has become an incredible resource for people like you. You can scan crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe for issues that touch your heart.

GoFundMe has helped millions of people raise money. More than 25 million people like you have donated $3 billion since the site launched seven years ago.

The site does not charge to donate. However, it collects 7.9 percent of the donations from the person raising the money.

Unfortunately, for every person like you who’s genuinely trying to help other people, there’s a person trying to steal your money. That includes GoFundMe scams. You may have heard about people, for instance, falsely claiming to have cancer just to raise some money.

Facebook gives moderators “full access” to user accounts suspected of terror links

Big problem: Facebook and others have refused to define what “terrorism” is.
By Zack Whittaker for Zero Day | June 29, 2017 — 18:15 GMT (11:15 PDT) | Topic: Security

Facebook has a fleet of low-paid contractors who are tasked with investigating possible connections with terrorism on it site.

The key takeaway: Moderators are granted “full access” to any account once it’s been flagged by the social network’s algorithms, which are looking for details or connections that might suggest a terror link. Moderators can track track a person’s location and read their private messages.

The news comes from The Guardian, just days after Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg announced the social network now has two billion users.

“The counter-terrorism unit has special clearance to carry out investigations into user accounts if they are suspected of having links to terrorist groups identified by the US State Department,” says the report. “Moderators will then access the individual’s private messages, see who they are talking to and what they are saying, and view where they have been.”

The move appears to go far above and beyond the company’s recently outlined efforts to use its artificial intelligence and human resources to counter terrorism on the platform. It’s in response to growing pressure from several countries to act and to battle terrorism on their platforms, in the wake of several terror attacks in the UK and Europe.

We’ve been warning you that ransomware attacks have been getting worse for quite some time now. In May, the nastiest variant ever discovered, dubbed WannaCry, infected hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide.

Another massive global cyberattack is happening right now. And this one seems to be much worse than WannaCry.

What’s the latest global cyberattack?
The latest massive cyberattack started spreading across the globe on Tuesday. It’s a ransomware attack being dubbed GoldenEye, which is thought to be a variant of Petya ransomware.

GoldenEye was first discovered in Ukraine, but it has since spread to countries around the world. Companies in the U.S., U.K., France, Norway and Denmark have all been affected. A radiation monitoring system was even affected in Chernobyl. Scary!

The attack has hit Ukraine extremely hard. Its power grid, airport, and national bank have all been compromised. Flight delays are expected because of the attack.

Ukraine’s deputy prime minister said on Twitter that, “all computers of the government had fallen victim to the virus.” He also posted a picture of his locked computer.
