South Asia's worst flooding in a decade kill thousands and decimates millions of hectares of crops

Millions of hectares of crops have been destroyed across south Asia following the worst flooding in a decade, prompting aid agencies to warn of a looming food and financial crisis.

As floodwaters receded, one aid executive said: "The scale of the devastation is hard to comprehend".

More than 1,400 people died in the floods, which swept the region over a period of two months.

The squalid conditions created after two major rivers broke their banks in northern Bangladesh have left around 13,000 of people suffering from an outbreak of diarrhoea and other conditions.

Quorn changes labelling to reveal mould is main ingredient

The makers of the meat substitute Quorn are changing their labelling in the US to highlight its main ingredient is a type of mould linked to the death of an 11-year-old boy.

Quorn Foods Inc., which makes substitutes for products including mince and sausages, has agreed to clearly label Mycoprotein which can cause an allergic reaction in rare cases. Mycoprotein is made using the Fusarium venenatum fungus in vats, similarly to yoghurt and beer.

The US campaign group the Centre for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) claimed that around 2,500 consumers have complained of experiencing adverse reactions after eating Quorn products, including anaphylactic shock and vomiting, according to the Daily Mail.

Equifax Faces Multibillion-Dollar Lawsuit Over Hack

A proposed class-action lawsuit was filed against Equifax Inc. late Thursday evening, shortly after the company reported that an unprecedented hack had compromised the private information of about 143 million people.

In the complaint filed in Portland, Ore., federal court, users alleged Equifax was negligent in failing to protect consumer data, choosing to save money instead of spending on technical safeguards that could have stopped the attack.

Bug in Windows Kernel Could Prevent Security Software From Identifying Malware

Malware developers can abuse a programming error in the Windows kernel to prevent security software from identifying if, and when, malicious modules have been loaded at runtime.

The bug affects PsSetLoadImageNotifyRoutine, one of the low-level mechanisms some security solutions use to identify when code has been loaded into the kernel or user space.

The problem is that an attacker can exploit this bug in a way that PsSetLoadImageNotifyRoutine returns an invalid module name, allowing an attacker to disguise malware as a legitimate operation.

Why the Equifax breach is very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever

The breach Equifax reported Thursday, however, very possibly is the most severe of all for a simple reason: the breath-taking amount of highly sensitive data it handed over to criminals. By providing full names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and, in some cases, driver license numbers, it provided most of the information banks, insurance companies, and other businesses use to confirm consumers are who they claim to be. The theft, by criminals who exploited a security flaw on the Equifax website, opens the troubling prospect the data is now in the hands of hostile governments, criminal gangs, or both and will remain so indefinitely.

Hacks hitting Yahoo and other sites, by contrast, may have breached more accounts, but the severity of the personal data was generally more limited. And in most cases the damage could be contained by changing a password or getting a new credit card number.
