    President Biden said Wednesday that it is clear Vladimir Putin is targeting civilians in Ukraine and insisted that 'nothing is off the table' with banning Russian gas imports, a drastic move that would send energy prices soaring further.  'It’s clear they are,' Biden said, when asked by a reporter if Russia is targeting civilians as he left the White House for Wisconsin.  Ukraine estimates that 2,000 civilians have been killed so far.   However Biden said it was too early to say whether Russia had committed war crimes. 'We are following it very closely. It’s early to say that.'  Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., shot back on Twitter: 'I don’t understand why Biden says it’s too early to say #Putin is committing war crimes If he says #Russia is using banned weapons, intentionally killing civilians & unnecessarily destroying civilian property then it’s clear he is committing war crimes.'  'Are you considering banning Russian oil imports?' Biden was also asked. 'Nothing is off the table,' he said.   Republicans have long called for Biden to start pumping more oil in America and stop buying Russian gas,...
    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel said Wednesday that it had broken up an Iranian spy ring that recruited Israeli women via social media. The women agreed to photograph sensitive sites, gather intelligence and in at least two cases, to encourage their sons to join Israeli military intelligence. Israel views Iran as its greatest threat, and the two nations have been waging a shadow war for years. Israel has repeatedly threatened to take military action against Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons. Iran denies it is seeking such weapons and has vowed a harsh response to any aggression. Israel’s Shin Bet internal security service said a suspected Iranian intelligence operative identified himself as Rambod Namdar on Facebook and claimed to be a Jewish man living in Israel. He appears to have targeted Israelis of Iranian descent. It said a 40-year-old Israeli woman was in touch with him for several years and agreed to photograph the U.S. Embassy when it was in Tel Aviv, as well as an Israeli government office and a shopping mall. The recruiter asked her to...
    Doctor Immanuel Hardtmann holds a syringe with the vaccine Moderna in a temporary vaccination center inside the Excursion boat Alexander von Humboldt on the first day of the #HierWirdGeimpft (Get Vaccinated Here) Covid-19 vaccination campaign on September 13, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.Carsten Koall | Getty Images News | Getty Images Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel on Monday said it will take months to develop and ship a vaccine that specifically targets the omicron variant of the virus that causes Covid-19. However, a higher 100-microgram dose of the company's booster shot could be ready much sooner. "The higher dose could be done right away but it will be months before the omicron specific variant is ready to ship in massive quantities," Bancel told CNBC's "Squawk Box." Bancel said Moderna believes the omicron variant is highly infectious, but it will take at least two weeks determine how much the mutations have impacted the efficacy of the vaccines currently on the market. "Depending on how much it dropped, we might decide on the one hand to give a higher dose of the current vaccine...
    Microsoft on Monday warned that the same Russian group behind the SolarWinds cyber attack in 2020 has been attempting to "replicate" that approach, now targeting organizations "integral" to the global IT supply chain—specifically, resellers and technology service providers. Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Customer Security & Trust Tom Burt shared the "latest activity" the company has observed from Russian nation-state actor Nobelium. Burt, in a blog post, said Nobelium was identified by the U.S. government and others as being part of Russia’s foreign intelligence service, known as the SVR. US COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WARN OF THREATS FROM CHINA, RUSSIA TO EMERGING TECHNOLOGY "Nobelium has been attempting to replicate the approach it has used in past attacks by targeting organizations integral to the global IT supply chain," Burt wrote. "This time, it is attacking a different part of the supply chain: resellers and other technology service providers that customize, deploy and manage cloud services and other technologies on behalf of their customers."  Burt added that Microsoft believes Nobelium "ultimately hopes to piggyback on any direct access that resellers may have to their...
    Annette Riedl | Picture Alliance | Getty Images The Russian-linked hacking group that's been blamed for an attack on the U.S. government and a significant number of private U.S. companies last year is targeting key players in the global technology supply chain, according to cybersecurity experts at Microsoft. Nobelium, as the hacking group is known, is infamous for the SolarWinds hack. On Monday, Tom Burt, Microsoft corporate vice president of customer security and trust, said Nobelium has "been attempting to replicate the approach it has used in past attacks by targeting organizations integral to the global IT supply chain." "This time, it is attacking a different part of the supply chain: resellers and other technology service providers that customize, deploy and manage cloud services and other technologies on behalf of their customers," Burt wrote in a blog Monday. Nobelium, which could not be reached for comment, is hoping to "piggyback" on any direct access that resellers may have to their customers' IT systems, Burt said. He added that this would allow the group to "more easily impersonate an organization's trusted technology...
    Twitter is refusing to judge a LeBron James tweet that some believe contained a veiled threat against the Ohio police officer who shot a 16-year-old black girl, saying the NBA superstar's decision to delete the post left its hands tied. “Our teams are unable to evaluate Tweets that have been deleted since they no longer exist on our service,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. James tweeted a photo Wednesday of Ohio police officer Nicholas Reardon, who shot Ma’Khia Bryant after she charged at two people with a knife, with the caption, "YOU'RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY." Although a video of the incident appears to show that Reardon stopped Bryant moments before she stabbed an unidentified female, James and others have questioned his actions. James was hit with an eruption of criticism for “inciting violence" at a time when riots have reached a powder-keg situation across the country and questions on whether Twitter would take action. James subsequently deleted the tweet. MAXINE WATERS ASKING BLM TO AMP UP 'CONFRONTATIONS' AMID CHAUVIN TRIAL, STILL ACTIVE ON FACEBOOK...

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel said Wednesday it foiled a cyberattack targeting its defense industry by a shadowy group that the U.S. has linked to North Korea. The Israeli Defense Ministry said hackers with the Lazarus Group built fake profiles on the LinkedIn social network and posed as the CEOs and senior officials of international companies. They then offered job opportunities to employees at major Israeli defense firms in an attempt to gain access to their computers and networks to steal sensitive information. The ministry says the attacks were detected “in real time” and thwarted. It said there was no “harm or disruption” to the targeted networks. The ministry said the Lazarus Group is “backed by a foreign country,” without elaborating. It did not immediately respond to a request for further comment. The U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions against the Lazarus Group last September, saying it was controlled by the North Korean government. It said the Lazarus Group was behind the devastating WannaCry ransomware, which froze 300,000 computers across 150 countries in 2017, and the destructive cyber attack against Sony Pictures...
