Nukeware: New malware deletes files and zaps system settings

Lazy but sneaky cybercrooks are slinging a new ransomware variant that falsely claims to have encrypted files when in reality it has deleted them.

Ranscam tricks victims by falsely claiming that files have been moved onto an hidden, encrypted partition.

In reality the malware has deleted files and comprehensively messed with system settings (removing executables associated with System Restores, deleting shadow copies, hobbling Safe Mode etc.) such that it is difficult or impossible to recover from an infection.

Victims are encouraged to pay a 0.2BTC ($125) ransom but in reality the crooks have no mechanism to restore compromised files. The attackers provided the same wallet address for all payments and for all samples identified by Cisco’s Talos security division.

Move over Pluto! Astronomers find tiny new dwarf planet on edge of our solar system orbiting up to 11 billion miles from the sun

In the icy depths of our solar system a tiny new rocky planet has been discovered orbiting up to 120 times further out from the sun than the Earth.

The new dwarf planet, which has not yet been officially named, has a width just half the length of Britain and its orbit swings up to twice as far out as Pluto.

It takes the miniature world, which will be extremely cold due to the extreme distance from the sun, 700 years to complete just one loop around the solar system.

Police Are Using The Dallas Shooting To Go After Legal Open Carry

By Kory Watkins

Why would law enforcement want to attack legally open carrying individuals? Freedom and control.

Texas was one of five states to not have legal open carry of a modern-day handgun — this was until people grew frustrated and did something about it.

Not too long ago, there were dozens of marches each month all across Texas to further gun freedoms. They would call them “open carry rallies.” People from all over would march with long guns, signs, flags, and some even passing out Constitutions...
