    GMAIL users have been left alarmed after a bug caused them to receive emails from Google warning their accounts are about to be shut down. The users were concerned about a possible phishing attempt as the emails claim the accounts will be shut down due to being "inactive," although many claim they use the account on a daily basis. 1Many users were worried their accounts would be terminated, but this ended up just being a bugCredit: Getty But it appears the the messages are simply a Google feature that is misfiring, ScreenRant reported. A trending thread on Google's support forum shows many users complaining that they were prompted to log in to their account after being told: "your Google Account will soon be considered inactive." The original poster on the thread wrote, "How is this possible. I use this account at least once a day. It says it will be considered 18 months inactive if I don't log in ASAP, which I did. Have I been compromised?" Many other users took to the thread to describe a similar experience happening...
    TWITTER and Facebook users will be given new rights to block anonymous accounts from seeing their posts in a crackdown on online trolls. The move is one of a number of tough new curbs being imposed by ministers to stop cyber bullies spreading hate and bile online. 1Facebook and Twitter users will be given new rights to block anonymous accounts from seeing their posts in a crackdown on online trollsCredit: Alamy Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries - who has been mocked online - wants to make it easier to stop Twitter trolls hiding behind the cloak of anonymity.  Under the radical shake-up, social media bosses will be given new abilities to track which accounts are anonymous. Social media users will then be able to prevent anonymous accounts from engaging with them online. There will also be a crackdown on ‘phoenix accounts’ - trolls who get shut down for posting sick abuse online but spring up under another name. And tech bosses will be told they must hand over information quicker to cops who are investigating anonymous accounts suspected of breaking the...
    The selfie is taken on a mobile device and then uploaded ID.me, a third-party identity verification company that will use its own facial recognition to verify the individual US taxpayers will have to submit a video selfie to access certain Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tools and applications starting this summer. The selfie is taken on a mobile device and then uploaded to ID.me, a third-party identity verification company that will use its own facial recognition to verify the individual. Once verified, the taxpayer will be asked to upload their government ID and copies of bills. Users can access basic information on the IRS without logging into ID.me, but the unique sign in will be required to make and view payments, access tax records, view or create payment plans, manage communications preference or view tax professional authorizations. However, this process is not a requirement to file taxes. 'The IRS emphasizes taxpayers can pay or file their taxes without submitting a selfie or other information to a third-party identity verification company,' the agency said in a statement.

    Microsoft has announced that all users can now go 'passwordless' — logging in to their accounts using other methods like fingerprints or authenticator apps instead. The move by the Redmond, Washington-based firm follows an initial rollout of the feature to Microsoft's business customers back in the March of this year.  According to the firm, nearly all of their employees are already taking advantage themselves of the passwordless login features.  The problem with passwords, they argued, is that they can be guessed or stolen — and, when elaborate enough to be secure are generally hard to remember.  In contrast, they said, only the correct users can provide their fingerprint or respond using the authenticator app on their phone. It is unclear, however, how safe one's account would be in the event that the phone containing the authenticator app was hacked, either remotely or after a theft. MailOnline has approached Microsoft for comment on this issue. The passwordless feature will not work with some older devices and platforms, however — including Xbox 360 consoles, Office 2010 and Windows 8.1 or earlier.  Scroll down...

    Fox News’ Aishah Hasnie said Friday that her friends in Afghanistan were “waiting on their death sentence” after the Taliban’s takeover. Hasnie — a dual citizen of the United States and Pakistan — said the country had become frenetic as residents attempt to to flee or prepare for Taliban rule by burning books and raiding grocery stores. “I have three good friends and … each of their families are in hiding right now, essentially, as they put it, waiting for their death sentence,” she said in a morning segment on Fox. “A few days ago … one of my friends’ relatives was shot on his way to work,” Hasnie said. “He worked for the Afghani government.

    Despite the controversy surrounding Polish-based facial recognition software PimEyes, an extensive test of the search engine shows that it has trouble identifying ordinary people.   Of the more than 25 searches performed by DailyMail.com, the AI-powered system had varying levels of trouble with 70 percent of photos, including rotated images or those that are slightly blurred. Journalists and celebrities seemed to be fairly accurate, but only 26 percent of results were entirely accurate for the average person. However, this is why security experts deem PimEyes a 'serious security risk' - the site provides information to social media accounts. Some of the matches included URL's to the individual's Instagram, TikTok, Tumblr and Facebook, along with personal blogs.  Those looking to 'stalk' someone using PimEyes may be able to find their target, but will have to sift through a trove of pornographic images.  Approximately 15 percent of search results popped up with explicit images that link back to the original adult content site.   Scroll down for video   Despite the controversy surrounding Polish-based facial recognition software PimEyes, an extensive test of the search...
    Facebook Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.Erin Scott | Reuters A coalition of 12 state attorneys general on Wednesday called on Facebook and Twitter to enforce their community guidelines and rid their services of misinformation being spread by accounts promoting anti-vaxxing ideas. "Misinformation disseminated via your platforms has increased vaccine hesitancy, which will slow economic recovery and, more importantly, ultimately cause even more unnecessary deaths," the coalition of attorneys general wrote in a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The coalition highlights that just 12 accounts and their associated organizations are responsible for 65% of the public anti-vaccine content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. In particular, the accounts target people of color to discourage them from getting the Covid-19 vaccines, the letter said. The letter comes a day before Zuckerberg, Dorsey and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai are set to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the topic of misinformation on their services.VIDEO18:5818:58The big, messy business of content moderation on Facebook, Twitter, YoutubeTech

    VIDEO2:4902:49Covid-19 is still weighing on consumer confidence, says The Conference Board's Steve OdlandThe Exchange Despite widespread job losses and financial uncertainty, Americans are faring well by most measures during the coronavirus pandemic. Federal relief, such as stimulus checks, expanded unemployment benefits and an extended pause in loan repayments, have even given some a boost. Consumers are paying down debt and saving more than they have in decades. Many are leveraging low interest rates to refinance and lower their monthly bills or catch up on past-due payments. As a result, credit scores, a general measure of credit worthiness, have improved across the board. In July, the average national credit score hit a record 711, according to FICO, the developer of one of the most commonly used scores by lenders. But that's not the whole story.

I do not commit crimes. Dark.fail believe that this fact is related to the constant criticism he has made against Chainalysis and its KYT (or Know Your Transaction) blockchain monitoring system. In a text written on the social network he adds: «last year I expressed strong opposition to the analysis system of this blockchain. In return, my address was dialed. This is pure evil. dark.fail maintains that the blocks were in retaliation for its opposition to some blockchain analytics methods.

    Some Twitter employees have set their accounts to private and scrubbed their online biographies over concerns they may be targeted by supporters of President Trump, the New York Times reported. In addition, some Twitter executives have been assigned personal security as the company reckons with its decision to bar one of its loudest voices. Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account was permanently suspended from Twitter January 8th, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in its statement. The president told supporters at a rally just before an attack on the Capitol January 6th they would “have to show strength,” and “fight much harder,” encouraging them to walk down to the Capitol. Trump tweeted that Vice President Mike Pence “didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done,” and later — while the attack was still ongoing— tweeted “we love you” to his supporters. The House of Representatives impeached Trump a second time on January 13th for “incitement of insurrection.” According to the Times, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who was working remotely from a private island the...
    The 'Twitter hack' in July, that let criminals access famous accounts, was caused after home working employees were tricked into handing over their login details.   Verified accounts belonging to users such as Elon Musk, Apple and Joe Biden were used to share scam posts promoting the virtual currency Bitcoin during the hack. Home working Twitter staff logged into the company network using a virtual private network (VPN) that lets you access work systems securely when out of the office.   Hackers got hold of the phone numbers of Twitter staff and pretended to be from the company IT department - telling them to enter their VPN login to a fake page. The criminals were then able to use these login details to get access to the real VPN site and finally into the full Twitter network where they could post as a verified user.  Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is seen above. He said a small number of employees were targeted with a phishing attack that led to the infamous hack. Criminals posting Bitcoin details from 130 accounts, including verified profile...

    The Internal Revenue Service announced on Friday more Americans will be able to withdraw money from their retirement accounts if they were affected by the coronavirus, either financially or physically. As part of the response to the coronavirus crisis, which has burdened the economy and taken millions of Americans out of work, the government said in April retirement savers could take qualified distributions of up to $100,000 in retirement assets, including 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts. In normal circumstances, individuals could distribute a maximum of $50,000. Investors could also take up to $100,000 as a loan from a 401(k), up from the usual $50,000 limit.

Under the expansion, the IRS said people who had a job offer rescinded or a delayed start date are now eligible as well. The new rules also allow spouses or household members to take these distributions if someone in the home was affected....
    It sounds a full-time job, and then some. “Pretty much all my time is dedicated to this,” one of the reporters behind the NYC Protest Updates 2020 (@protest_nyc) Twitter account told The Daily Beast. “I wake up and open my laptop. If I’m on the streets that day, I eat and then fall asleep as soon as I get home. If I’m not, I’m on the scanner, doing research or organizing logistics pretty much all day.”  Since its creation last week, over 11,000 people have followed NYC Protest Updates for fast, on-the-ground reporting conducted by self-described “young, independent journalists.” These reporters, who requested to remain anonymous to protect their jobs and safety, face no shortage of competition from mainstream and local media.

One is a man recently laid off from a Brooklyn paper due to coronavirus-related cuts and another is a woman currently employed by local television news in New York. They are both in...
