Sturgeon has ‘no intention of publishing listening exercise’ after data protection breach

The entire episode was shut down on November 30 and now the findings will be kept secret.

At the time of the launch of the SNP and First Minister were criticised for their strategy.

Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said: “If Nicola Sturgeon was listening to the people of Scotland she would know they don’t want to be dragged back to another divisive referendum. 

“What people in Scotland want is for the Government to do the job they were elected to do which is help improve our hospitals and our schools, keep their eye on the day job and not drag us back to a referendum.”

MSU to spend $2.9 million in wake of data breach

MSU will spend an estimated $2.9 million on identity theft protection in the wake of the data breach that exposed university records of about 400,000 people.

According to a statement from MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon, MSU will provide credit monitoring and identity theft protection free of charge to everyone affected.

“We have a reserve fund that we have set aside that is used to pay deductibles for insurance claims and general liability claims and the money will come from that reserve fund,” university spokesperson Jason Cody said.

The $2.9 million will be used to pay AllClear ID and for any costs from the investigation, Cody said.

The fund will have $6.5 million left in it after the costs from the breach are paid.

“It’s a flat rate fee,” Cody said. “It doesn’t matter if 20,000 people or 200,000 people sign up for the credit monitoring because you’re paying a flat rate.”

A letter explaining the data breach and the identity protection program has been sent to all 400,000 people, Cody said.

“As an added precaution, we have arranged to have AllClear ID protect your identity for 24 months at no cost to you,” the letter said.

MSU is offering two services through AllClear ID: identity repair and credit monitoring.

More than 1M Google Android accounts hacked in massive data breach

More than one million Google users had their accounts breached by malicious software designed to hit Android smartphones, Check Point Software Technologies reported.

Another 13,000 devices are breached each day, the company reported. The malware, called Gooligan, has impacted a million users throughout the world. About 19 percent of the breaches have happened in the Americas, the company reported. 

An infected app gets installed and then sends data from the device to the malware’s main server, according to Check Point. The devices impacted include Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Android 4.4 KitKat and the Android 5.0 Lollipop.  

 

 

Those with Androids can check to see if they are impacted by clicking here

A Google spokesperson told thenextweb.com that an internal investigation showed the hackers were not targeting sensitive information, but rather promoting apps that can be profitable.
