    Anne Heche's son is arguing that the 2011 email his mother sent to ex James Tupper naming him executor of her estate is not a valid will.  Earlier this month, DailyMail.com revealed a prescient email Heche sent to Tupper in 2011 naming him executor of her estate. The email was included in Tupper's legal filing as he battles Heche's son Homer Laffoon, 20, for control of her estate. 'FYI in case I die tomorrow and anyone asks,' Heche's cut and dry email begins. 'My wishes are that all of my assets go to the control of Mr. James Tupper to be used to raise my children and then given to the children.' But Laffoon is now fighting back in a new filing obtained by DailyMail.com, claiming that the email is not a legally recognized will because Heche did not sign the document. 'Mr. Tupper repeatedly refers to the email as a ''will'' however – as a matter of law – the email does not qualify as either a holographic will or formal witnessed will,' Laffoon's filing states.  'The email was not signed...
    Bad actors are taking advantage of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) popularity by hiding malware in the first public image shared by President Biden in July that shows a glowing galaxy that formed 4.6 billion years ago. The image is being used in a phishing email campaign, in which attackers are hiding a malicious code in the photo that is released into victim's computer systems when downloaded. The attack, dubbed GO#WEBBFUSCATOR, was discovered by security experts at Securonix who said the malicious file 'is undetectable by all antivirus systems.' Securonix VP Augusto Barros told Popular Science that this specific JWST image may have been chosen because even if antivirus software does flag users, they may be more inclined to ignore the warning because this image has been shared around the world.

    Governor Ron DeSantis had his office issue a scathing response to ABC’s The View after the talk show asked him to appear as a guest. The daytime show reached out to the Republican governor of Florida to invite him on the show. The governor declined the invitation in a blistering email that detailed at least four occasions that the woke show hosts and guests, including Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behard and Sunny Hostin, had openly slammed the governor and his policies.  DeSantis' team declined to allow him to go into the lions den with the liberal ladies, instead opting to take the row to Twitter.  DeSantis' deputy press secretary Bryan Griffin claimed that he received the request on Friday asking to arrange the appearance, with the show saying they ‘would be honored’ to have the governor. Posting his email online, Griffin wrote: ‘Thanks for the invite. I understand that you are sending this request on behalf of your team. ‘But are the hosts of the View really interested in hearing from Governor DeSantis about all of the important work he is doing on...

And the victims apparently include Contra Costa County supervisors Karen Mitchoff and John Gioia, as well as Mitchoff’s mother.

    A federal grand jury has returned charges to a Hanover man who allegedly sent top secret information to another person using his personal email, the US Attorney's Office for Maryland reports. Mark Unkenholz, 60, "willfully transmitted" National Defense Information (NDI) to someone who was not entitled to receive it 13 times from February 14, 2018 to June 1, 2020, the office reports.   As an employee of the National Security Agency (NSA), Unkenholz had access to NDI, which is  typically classified as "Top Secret," "Secret" or "Confidential."  In addition, only certain individuals have access to NDI and all information is stored in an approved facility and container.

    PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — Cyber Monday is here, and while millions of Americans will be looking for the best deals the internet has to offer, cyber criminals will be hard at work looking to target online shoppers. The holiday shopping season is a prime opportunity for bad actors to take advantage of unsuspecting shoppers through fake websites, malicious links, and even fake charities. Their goal is simple: get a hold of your personal and financial information to compromise your data, insert malicious software, steal your identity and take your money. And if you think you’re not worth being the target of such bad actors, think again. Criminals don’t need to know how much is in your bank account to want to get into it. Your identity, your financial data, what’s in your email — it’s all valuable, and cyber criminals will cast as wide a net as possible to get to anyone they can. In fact, they’re counting on you to think thinking you’re not a target. READ MORE: Temple Fires Rod Carey As Head Football Coach After 3 SeasonsAt the...

    When signing up for an Instagram account, the service promises that your email and birthday won’t be publicly visible. A bug discovered by security researcher Saugat Pokharel, however, made it so that an attacker could easily get that private information. The bug, which was patched after being reported to Facebook, was exploitable by business accounts that were given access to an experimental feature the company was testing. The attack worked on private accounts, and ones that don’t accept public DMs The attack used Facebook’s Business Suite tool, available to any Facebook business account. The experimental upgrade meant that if the Facebook business account was linked to an Instagram account, the Business Suite tool would show additional information about a person alongside any direct message — including their supposedly private email address and birthday. All business users had to do was send a direct message on Instagram to call up the information. Pokharel found that the attack worked on accounts that were set to private and accounts that were set to not accept DMs from the public. If an account...

Khanna told the businessman that he “refused to comment on the details of your allegations because I don’t have personal knowledge about that, but have said I respect your service to our country and that you...
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s wife, Susan, instructed State Department staff to complete personal tasks while their son asked if he or the software company he worked for could be involved in an event planned by the federal agency, reports NBC News. Pompeo is already under investigation for alleged misdeeds at the State Department and is also facing a probe into whether he violated federal ethics law by delivering prerecorded remarks to the Republican National Convention while on official diplomatic travel in Israel. According to emails obtained by NBC News as part of a Freedom of Information Act request, Susan Pompeo routinely gave instructions to State Department officials from her personal email address about travel plans, restaurant reservations and maintenance requests for the house the family rents on a military base outside Washington, D.C. Mike Pompeo in 2015 criticized Hillary Clinton for using her personal email to conduct government business. Nick Pompeo, in an email to State Department officials less than three months after his father was sworn in, expressed his gratitude for a private tour he and his mother...

According to Huffington Post, scam artists are posing as political action committees (PAC) in emails in an effort to steal people’s personal information. Citizens have been regularly receiving warnings from cybersecurity experts. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Better Business Bureau have warned that several fraudulent sources are targeting voters with sophisticated email messages to steal phone numbers, addresses and bank account information. Sam Small, chief security officer of digital security firm ZeroFox, says that these scammers often use important occasions such as elections, disaster relief, and health crises to lure their targets.

    Indie-pop singer-songwriter Finn O'Sullivan's songs are so dreamy, they could score a wedding or a rom-com. Take her latest, "Every Time," a slow, romantic ballad she recorded with her friend Jamie Lammers, written about a relationship she wanted to work out. The track begins with the drawn-out echoes of an electric guitar and O'Sullivan's soft voice. She and Lammers might as well be sitting next to you in your living room, singing by your side; the effect is almost uncomfortably intimate, and shows how O'Sullivan draws audiences into her personal life through music. The eighteen-year-old, in her first year at Metropolitan State University, has been making music since she was a kid. Idolizing Taylor Swift, O'Sullivan picked up a guitar at twelve, and her parents, both musicians, taught her to play. It took a few years for the songwriter to take her music outside of her bedroom, though; she broke into the Colorado music scene a few years ago, performing at coffee shops like La Vita Bella and the Roost in Longmont.
