U.S. panel launches trade secret theft probe into China steel

A labourer welds steel frames at a steel factory in Huaibei The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Thursday it launched an investigation into complaints by United States Steel Corp that Chinese competitors stole its trade secrets, fixed prices and misrepresented the origin of their exports to the United States. U.S. Steel, in its complaint under section 337 of the main U.S. tariff law, is seeking to halt nearly all imports from China's largest steel producers and trading houses. The commission identified 40 Chinese steel makers and distribution subsidiaries as respondents, including Baosteel , Hebei Iron and Steel Group , Wuhan Iron and Steel Co Ltd , Anshan Iron and Steel Group and Jiangsu Shagang Group.


Symantec says SWIFT heist linked to Philippines attack, Sony hack

Photo illustration of the SWIFT logo By Dustin Volz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hackers who stole $81 million from Bangladesh's central bank have been linked to another cyber attack, this time on a bank in the Philippines, in addition to the 2014 hack on Sony Pictures Entertainment, cyber security company Symantec Corp said in a blog post on Thursday. If confirmed, the Philippines incident would represent the fourth known cyber attack against a bank involving fraudulent SWIFT messages. SWIFT, as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication is known, this week urged banks to bolster their security, saying it was aware of multiple attacks.


Watch right here as SpaceX attempts a difficult rocket landing

SpaceX is ramping up the number of launches of its Falcon 9 rocket, which is good for the company, and great for fans of large explosions. Tonight, Elon Musk's rocket company is shooting a commercial communications satellite to geostationary orbit. The first stage will once again try and land on a barge in the ocean, but the trajectory of the launch means that the landing will be "challenging." DON'T MISS:  Microsoft just turned Windows 10 into malware Tonight's payload is THAICOM 8, a commercial comms satellite that needs to get to a high orbit above Southeast Asia. Getting a satellite that high means going faster and higher, which creates problems for the landing. The Falcon 9 first stage uses whatever leftover fuel it has to decelerate and land, so the higher and faster the rocket has to go for launch, the less fuel it has to slow down before hitting the barge. With those caveats in mind, SpaceX is describing this landing as "challenging." But it said the same thing about the last landing it attempted, and that went more or less perfectly to plan. The launch window opens at 5.40 pm E.T, with a backup launch window tomorrow if needed. SpaceX will be streaming the entire thing, landing included, on the YouTube channel below. https://youtu.be/zBYC4f79iXc

'Game on': Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders say they're willing to debate each other

Dust off the lawn chairs and get the popcorn ready: Donald Trump says he’s willing to debate Bernie Sanders before the June 7 California primary. During a Wednesday night appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Trump said he would accept the Vermont senator’s challenge to a one-on-one debate as long money raised for the event goes to charity. Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee and Sanders is facing increasingly daunting odds in the Democratic primary.

Brazilian companies rank worst among major economies on cyber security: report

A hand is silhouetted in front of a computer screen in this picture illustration taken in Berlin By Dustin Volz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Companies based in Brazil scored “significantly poorer” in aggregate on a variety of cyber security indicators than those based in other major world economies, such as the United States and China, according to a report released on Thursday. The study, from Massachusetts-based security ratings company BitSight, found that Brazilian companies underperformed on metrics such as machine compromise rates, email security and file-sharing practices in an analysis conducted over the past year. "Brazil has significantly poorer performance than the other countries included in the study," the study said.


What Obama should do on torture

What Obama should do on torture Like a lot of two-term presidents nearing the last bend in the road, Barack Obama seems guided by equal parts conviction and whimsy these days, without much regard for political consequence. The president has expounded publicly on race and political civility, shaken hands with a Cuban Castro, commuted a slew of sentences for drug offenders, plunged the federal government into the debate over transgender Americans in restrooms. Obama clearly isn’t going to declassify the full text of the Senate’s mammoth, landmark report on torture, and maybe that’s the right call — I don’t know.

Guess which movie people want to see even more than ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘Civil War’

Disney has been on a roll for the past 12 months, having released not one but two huge blockbusters including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War . As big as those two movies were, the company also has plenty of other highly anticipated titles in the making and it looks like there's one trailer that people wanted to watch even more than The Force Awakens or Civil War . DON’T MISS: Microsoft’s just turned Windows 10 into malware You’ve probably seen the first teaser for the Beauty and the Beast live-action film that’s due March 17, 2017. It’s a 90-second video that will immediately remind you of the animated version of the story, also a Disney favorite. How excited are people for this movie? The teaser generated 91.8 million views in its first 24 hours, beating The Force Awakens (88 million views for the second trailer), Civil War (61 million) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (55 million), The Hollywood Reporter notes. The teaser trailer debuted on ABC’s Good Morning America  this past Monday morning, before appearing online and airing around the world. If that first 24 hours is any indication of box office performance, then Disney has likely locked down yet another blockbuster title and potential cash cow. Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. The entire cast is spectacular — we’re looking at Kevin Kline, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. That alone should guarantee an incredible film.

Exclusive: In Ecuador cyber heist, thieves moved $9 million to 23 Hong Kong firms

A branch of the Banco del Austro is seen in Quito By Clare Baldwin and Nathan Layne HONG KONG/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Cyber thieves who stole $12 million from an Ecuadorian bank in 2015 routed the funds through 23 companies registered in Hong Kong, some of them with no clear business activity, according to previously unreported court filings and judicial rulings. The court papers offer a first glimpse into where some of the money was moved after it reached accounts in Hong Kong. The filings stem from a lawsuit filed in early 2015 by Ecuador's Banco del Austro (BDA) in Hong Kong against the web of companies that received or handled more than $9 million in stolen funds, bank records submitted to the territory's Court of First Instance show.


Don text and drive in Canada, or cops will bust you with this camera rig

Texting and driving is a menace that's up there with chugging vodka while at the wheel, and cops the world over are slowly cracking down on it. But how do you catch errant texters? With a DSLR and some serious glass, if you're Canada's Mounties. DON'T MISS:  Microsoft’s just turned Windows 10 into malware A  CBC News  report spotted by  PetaPixel   shows RCMP officers in British Columbia using a new set-up to catch drivers who are texting and driving at intersections. The rig consists of a DSLR, a 50mm lens, and a target-shooting spotting scope. It's a reasonably affordable set of kit -- certainly cheaper than a 500mm zoom lens -- but it should be good enough to capture photos of offenders from three-quarters of a mile away. That's bad news for anyone who likes to drive distracted. Even if you think it's reasonable to check your phone at a red light, it's illegal under Canadian law, and the Mounties are coming for your texts. The good news for distracted drivers is that due to the limitations of the rig (and in general, limitations of trying to photograph a car going at 70mph), it's only going to work at intersections for now. To catch highway phone users, cops are going to be relying on the old-fashioned Mk. 1 eyeball for now. Canada's set-up is the lastest in a list of technology to catch distracted drivers. Legislation was recently introduced in New York state to give cops "textalyzers," devices that could be used on driver's phones after a crash to see if they had been using it in the run-up to an accident. A spotting scope is a little more old-school, but nonetheless effective in issuing tickets.

Kyle, a former Navy SEAL who was murdered by a disturbed fellow veteran in 2013, wrote that he had received two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars. The Silver Star, the third-highest combat decoration, is awarded for gallantry in action.

Exclusive: Bangladesh probes 2013 hack for links to central bank heist

bangladesh By Krishna N. Das and Ruma Paul DHAKA (Reuters) - Bangladesh police are reviewing a nearly forgotten 2013 cyber heist at the nation’s largest commercial bank for connections to February's $81 million heist at the country's central bank, a senior law enforcement official said on Wednesday. The unsolved theft of $250,000 at Sonali Bank involved fraudulent transfer requests sent over the SWIFT international payments network. It is not widely known outside of Bangladesh, and in fact was treated as a cold case until Bangladesh police revived the investigation after thieves in February also used the SWIFT network to steal $81 million from Bangladesh Bank.


State Department email probe slams Hillary Clinton

Report: Upgraded Xbox One with 4K, Oculus Rift support will launch in 2017

With less than a month to go until E3 2016 , the rumor mill has begun to kick into high gear. On Wednesday, Kotaku published a report claiming that Microsoft will release a cheaper, smaller Xbox One before the end of the year while an upgraded Xbox One console with upgraded specs will launch in 2017. DON'T MISS:  Microsoft’s just turned Windows 10 into malware According to Kotaku's sources, the upgraded Xbox carries the codename Scorpio, and will have a more powerful GPU than the current model. Sources also say that the new console will be able to support the Oculus Rift , which is why Microsoft is currently working to partner with Oculus in the months leading up to launch. As for the smaller Xbox One, there's a chance it will come equipped with a 2TB hard drive, although Kotaku couldn't offer many more details regarding the 2016 console. Providing the smaller Xbox One is real, we'll probably see it at E3 . Together, these two consoles make up a new strategy that sources are calling "Project Helix." This strategy will see the companies two major platforms, Windows and Xbox, come together as one. Developer sources tell Kotaku that Microsoft is going to require games to be made available for both platforms in the future. Finally, it appears that both of these consoles are part of a new iterative approach to console releases that will continue throughout the hardware generation. Sources say that Microsoft will continue to release new hardware on a more consistent basis than ever before, while keeping its games compatible with as much of the available hardware as it possibly can at once. We'll likely hear more about these plans when Microsoft takes the stage at E3 2016 on Monday, June 13th at 9:30 a.m. PDT. You can read all about the company's currently announced plans for E3 right here .

Clinton faulted on emails by State Department audit

Clinton email use broke federal rules: inspector's report Hillary Clinton and her team ignored clear guidance from the State Department that her email setup broke federal standards and could leave sensitive material vulnerable to hackers, an independent audit has found. The inspector general’s review also revealed that hacking attempts forced then-Secretary of State Clinton off email at one point in 2011, though she insists the personal server she used was never breached. Clinton and several of her senior staff declined to be interviewed for the State Department investigation.


Paul Ryan ally doubts speaker will ever fully endorse Trump

He has been called an “intellectual prodigy” and is one of the most influential thinkers and writers in conservative Republican politics. Yuval Levin, founding editor of National Affairs magazine, is also an informal adviser to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the most prominent Republican national leader to decline — at least so far — to endorse presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Levin also worked as a White House policy adviser to former President George W. Bush and has since been part of a movement within Republican politics to move the party toward a solutions-oriented disposition, in contrast to many in the party whose main goal has been to block the agenda of President Obama and the Democrats.

Microsoft just turned Windows 10 into malware

For months now, Microsoft has done everything in its power to shove  Windows 10 down your throat. The free update is mandatory at this point, and we’ve heard from many Windows users who discovered their computers updated to the newest version automatically , without their knowledge or explicit permission. Microsoft kept offering excuses for these annoying occurrences, and even said it will stop pushing upgrades to Windows users refuse to hope aboard the Windows 10 train. Now, the company has come up with its most evil trick yet to get you to update your PC to Windows 10, and it's based on the same methodology hackers use to trick people into installing malware. DON'T MISS:  New free app and site makes watching online videos like regular TV channels Pop-ups often appear when you visit malicious websites and when you click the "X" to close them, malware is installed on your computer. Well, Microsoft just tweaked its Windows 10 upgrade alert pop-up so that the update is triggered when clicking the X, PC World explains . The Get Windows X app that pushes the update prompt has recently changed the behavior of the “X” button. Earlier, users would have been able to dismiss the pop-up by pressing the button, as you would expect. But you can’t do that anymore. Pressing the X now has a different function. It tells the company you’re happy to have your computer updated at the time shown inside the pop-up. The only way to get rid of it is to change the update time manually. But of course, that’s not intuitive at all and many people are about to be tricked into upgrading. The trick is disingenuous at best, since Microsoft isn’t technically doing anything wrong. It’s just turning the function of the X button from “close and do nothing” to “close and upgrade later.” You know, without explaining this tiny change to anyone. Come July 29th, Microsoft will stop prompting users to upgrade, Business Insider reminds us, so make sure you change your Windows 10 upgrade time to August or later!

TOKYO (AP) — Leaders of the Group of Seven rich nations will undoubtedly voice unity over fighting terrorism, pandemics and tax evasion at their summit in Japan this week. Finding a consensus on how to breathe life into their sluggish economies is proving more elusive. Aging workforces, sagging productivity and lingering damage from the 2008 financial crisis are complicating efforts to spur growth while the effects of the slowdown in China and the other big developing economies ripple across the globe. At a pre-summit meeting in northern Japan's Sendai, finance ministers and central bank governors of the G7 failed to concur on a coordinated approach to fighting what Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph E.

China's Huawei files patent suits against Samsung Elec

People walk past a sign board of Huawei at CES Asia 2016 in Shanghai By Yimou Lee and Anne Marie Roantree HONG KONG (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] on Wednesday said it sued Samsung Electronics Co Ltd claiming infringement of smartphone patents, the Chinese firm's first intellectual property challenge against the world's top mobile maker. Huawei has filed lawsuits in the United States and China seeking compensation for what it said was unlicensed use of fourth-generation (4G) cellular communications technology, operating systems and user interface software in Samsung phones. "We hope Samsung will ... stop infringing our patents and get the necessary license from Huawei, and work together with Huawei to jointly drive the industry forward," Ding Jianxing, president of Huawei's Intellectual Property Rights Department, said in a statement.
