The Mohave County Board of Supervisors in Arizona is scheduled to vote today on an agenda item to, “approve and direct the Mohave County Elections Department to carry out hand tabulation of ballots for the 2024 elections.”
The agenda item packet includes a letter from Kari Lake attorney Bryan Blehm vowing to defend the decision and cover all legal expenses, a letter from Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli, and a notification that the County has received “written commitment” covering the volunteers required to carry this out.
However, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, who stole her election by 280 votes, sent a letter to the Board yesterday, threatening prosecution, “for conducting an illegal hand count” and labeling people advising this hand count as, “bad-faith actors.”
The Lumma information-stealing malware is now using an interesting tactic to evade detection by security software - the measuring of mouse movements using trigonometry to determine if the malware is running on a real machine or an antivirus sandbox.
Lumma (or LummaC2) is a malware-as-a-service information stealer rented to cybercriminals for a subscription between $250 and $1,000. The malware allows the attacks to steal data from web browsers and applications running on Windows 7-11, including passwords, cookies, credit cards, and information from cryptocurrency wallets.
The Kinsing malware operator is actively exploiting the CVE-2023-46604 critical vulnerability in the Apache ActiveMQ open-source message broker to compromise Linux systems.
The flaw allows remote code execution and was fixed in late October. Apache’s disclosure explains that the issue allows running arbitrary shell commands leveraging serialized class types in the OpenWire protocol.
Researchers found that thousands of servers remained exposed to attacks after the release of the patch and ransomware gangs like HelloKitty and TellYouThePass started to take advantage of the opportunity.
To mitigate the threat, system administrators are recommended to upgrade Apache Active MQ to versions 5.15.16, 5.16.7, 5.17.6, or 5.18.3, which address the security issue.
Facepalm: While Western Digital is facing a class action lawsuit over failing SanDisk SSDs, a new report coming from a data recovery company has seemingly discovered the real issue within the defective drives. According to Attingo, the entire hardware design is flawed and no firmware update will solve this kind of problem alone.
Joe Biden’s poll numbers are so bad that NBC’s hosts were stunned as they reported on a new left-leaning NBC poll that shows Biden’s approval rating is just 40% – the lowest Biden “has ever measured in our poll.”
City officials who just a week ago had outlined exactly what they would allow for Christmas decorations – “non-religious” snowflakes, greenery and northern lights – abruptly now are claiming that was not intended to be a ban on religious items.
The statistics are overwhelming when it comes to fentanyl seized at the border. In one week’s time, border patrol seized about 300 pounds of fentanyl in Tucson alone. The southern border has nine sectors which means a lot more fentanyl is getting through the border. We can’t forget to mention 14,300 illegals crossing into the U.S. in Tucson alone this past week.
In 1988, in an elevator at a film festival in Havana, the director Oliver Stone was handed a copy of On the Trail of the Assassins, a newly published account of the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Stone admired Kennedy with an almost spiritual intensity and viewed his death on November 22, 1963 — 60 years ago this month — as a hard line in American history: the “before” hopeful and good; the “after” catastrophic. Yet he had never given much thought to the particulars of the assassination. “I believed that Lee Oswald shot the president,” he said. “I had no problem with that.” On the Trail of the Assassins, written by the Louisiana appellate judge Jim Garrison, proposed something darker. In 1963, Garrison had been district attorney of New Orleans, Oswald’s home in the months before the killing. He began an investigation and had soon traced the contours of a vast government conspiracy orchestrated by the CIA; Oswald was the “patsy” he famously claimed to be. Stone read Garrison’s book three times, bought the film rights, and took them to Warner Bros. “I was hot at the time,” Stone told me. “I could write my own ticket, within reason.” The studio gave him $40 million to make a movie.
The resulting film, JFK, was a scandal well before it came anywhere near a theater. “Some insults to intelligence and decency rise (sink?) far enough to warrant objection,” the Chicago Tribune columnist Jon Margolis wrote just as shooting began. “Such an insult now looms. It is JFK.” Newsweek called the film “a work of propaganda,” as did Jack Valenti, the head of the Motion Picture Association of America, who specifically likened Stone to the Nazi filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl. “It could spoil a generation of American politics,”Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote in theWashington Post.
MSNBC’s Al Sharpton pushed the panic button on Monday over black voters ditching Democrats, warning the Biden Administration to take it more seriously.
The massive lack of enthusiasm among black voters, specifically young minority voters for the Biden Administration has become more apparent in the wake of indictments against Donald Trump.
“How do you see it, and what do you see can be the remedy?” MSNBC’s Jonathan Lemire asked Al Sharpton.
“I think that the fact that there is a lack of enthusiasm among young voters, particularly young black voters, the Biden campaign needs to take seriously because you need to really build a ground game movement from the bottom-up, rather than just poo-poo it and be in denial,” Sharpton said.
