As I am sure you have seen, Hurricane Harvey has come on shore in Texas and totally nailed part of the coast.
If you want to see something crazy, watch the live streams from the hurricane hunters that were in the eyewall in Rockport. Yesterday I shared some hotels that were offering discounted rates to hurricane evacuees, though I bet some of those are full by now.
Despite promising customers to delete their user data from the site for a fee, the company actually retained the data on ALM’s servers, the hackers claimed.
"Too bad for those men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion,” the hackers wrote.
"I love it when I'm called and told I have 15 minutes to get to someplace where I'll be greeted at the door with a surprise—maybe lingerie, nakedness. I like lots of foreplay and stamina, fun, discretion, oral, even willingness to experiment—*smile*"Passwords released in the data dump appear to have been hashed using the bcrypt algorithm for PHP, but Robert Graham, CEO of Erratasec, says that despite this being one of the most secure ways to store passwords, "hackers are still likely to be able to 'crack' many of these hashes in order to discover the account holder's original password." If the accounts are still online, this means hackers will be able to grab any private correspondence associated with the accounts.
It's notable, however, that the cheating site, in using the secure hashing algorithm, surpassed many other victims of breaches we've seen over the years who never bothered to encrypt customer passwords."We’re so used to seeing cleartext and MD5 hashes," Graham says.
Any increased security would be too little too late for them.
If this continues for days, as they say it might, it will become quite problematic for many in the area.
If you haven’t already taken the airlines up on their offer to change your flights for free, I would highly recommend doing that well into next week to avoid this part of Texas.
sensitive customer information from the cheating site Ashley appear to have made good on their threat to post the data online.
"It’s refreshing to see bcrypt actually being used."Here's how the hackers introduced the new data dump: Following the intrusion last month, the hackers, who called themselves the Impact Team, demanded that Avid Life Media, owner of Ashley and its companion site Established Men, take down the two sites.
Established promises to connect beautiful young women with rich sugar daddies "to fulfill their lifestyle needs." The hackers didn't target Cougar Life, a sister site run by ALM that promises to connect older women with younger men."Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison and Established Men offline permanently in all forms, or we will release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails," the hackers wrote in a statement following the breach.
However, if you are in a Texas hotel, the disaster proclamation has led to a suspension of the collection of state and local hotel taxes to victims of the hurricane until September 6, 2017.
