Attorneys for the Justice Department have revealed documents connected to their search warrant for Donald Trump’s Twitter account, indicating that prosecutors collected a massive collection of data about the former President’s social media activity—including information on every account that liked, followed, or retweeted him.

The extensively redacted search warrant was revealed as a result of a judge’s ruling on November 17, which came after a consortium of media organizations filed an application in August for the warrant and other data to be made public.

A Deutsche Bank executive may have just wrecked New York Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against former President Donald Trump.

James’ lawsuit has turned on framing the German bank lender as Trump’s ‘victim’ in an alleged scheme to inflate his assets in order to get better terms from banks and insurers.

It turns out that she has a problem with her alleged ‘victim.’ The bank seems to have approved of Trump’s asset valuation.

David Williams, who worked directly on at least one of Trump’s loans over several decades, testified on Tuesday in Manhattan that it’s “atypical, but not entirely unusual” for a bank to internally slash a client’s stated asset values by 50% and still approve a loan, as they did with Trump, according to Bloomberg.

This is the first time this winter that the Demand Flexibility Service (DFS) will be used to manage the nation’s energy use.

The DFS works by paying households to cut use by turning off washing machines, dishwashers, ovens, TVs and even lights during the evening peak.

National Grid ESO insisted that while the gap between electricity demand and supply will be ‘tight’, there is no risk of blackouts.

Cybersecurity researchers have detailed a "severe design flaw" in Google Workspace's domain-wide delegation (DWD) feature that could be exploited by threat actors to facilitate privilege escalation and obtain unauthorized access to Workspace APIs without super admin privileges.

"Such exploitation could result in theft of emails from Gmail, data exfiltration from Google Drive, or other unauthorized actions within Google Workspace APIs on all of the identities in the target domain," cybersecurity firm Hunters said in a technical report shared with The Hacker News.

The design weakness – which remains active to this date – has been codenamed DeleFriend for its ability to manipulate existing delegations in the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Google Workspace without possessing super admin privileges.

DJVU, in itself a variant of the STOP ransomware, typically arrives on the scene masquerading as legitimate services or applications. It's also delivered as a payload of SmokeLoader.

A significant aspect of DJVU attacks is the deployment of additional malware, such as information stealers (e.g., RedLine Stealer and Vidar), making them more damaging in nature.

In the latest attack chain documented by Cybereason, Xaro is propagated as an archive file from a dubious source that masquerades as a site offering legitimate freeware.

Opening the archive file leads to the execution of a supposed installer binary for a PDF writing software called CutePDF that, in reality, is a pay-per-install malware downloader service known as PrivateLoader.

The campaign first came to light in late July 2023 when Sophos detailed a cluster of 40 credential-harvesting apps targeting customers of Bank Mellat, Bank Saderat, Resalat Bank, and Central Bank of Iran.

The primary goal of the bogus apps is to trick victims into granting them extensive permissions as well as harvest banking login credentials and credit card details by abusing Android's accessibility services.

"The corresponding legitimate versions of the malicious apps are available at Cafe Bazaar, an Iranian Android marketplace, and have millions of downloads," Sophos researcher Pankaj Kohli said at the time.

So a few months back, this was causing bond yields to rise high enough that the market started a downtrend again from the summer until October.  Too many bonds being sold. Then the Treasury did Yellen’s Yolo, selling more bills instead of bonds, driving yields down. This contributed greatly to the November rally along with future expectations of lower Fed fund rates.

It sounds too crazy to be true, but can a tiny elementary particle really be God? Surely you've heard of the "God particle" that scientists in Switzerland have been able to locate. These scientists now announced a puzzling discovery at the Lage Hadron Collider in Geneva. The particles suddenly exhibited unexpected behavior that calls everything into question and shows in a shocking way that we can never know everything.

Some insiders believe that Israeli fire was responsible for a portion of the Israeli body count that day, including a retired Israeli army major. The veteran, who goes by the name “Major Graeme,” was born in South Africa but settled in Israel at 18 and served in its army for 29 years, participating in numerous major operations.

In a video posted online, he theorized that Israelis who were being taken hostage by Hamas were “possibly killed by Israeli airstrikes when the Israeli Air Force attacked vehicles that were returning into Gaza.”

This is backed up by an Israeli police source, who told Haaretz that an Israeli military helicopter shot some civilians who attended the Supernova rave where 364 people died that day.

The paper, which did not specify how many Israelis died at the hands of their own military, admitted: “According to a police source, the investigation also shows that an IDF combat helicopter that arrived to the scene and fired at terrorists there apparently also hit some festival participants.”

The media's recurring pattern of dishonestly depicting individuals as bigots, from Covington Catholic students to Kyle Rittenhouse and now a child at a football game, underscores a troubling trend. It's a playbook we can now challenge, revealing the media's unwarranted attacks, particularly on innocent children, making them, in essence, enemies of the people.
