With the recent ransomware attack taking its toll on nearly a quarter of a million computers and affecting millions of users and their customers around the world, the question in the minds of many right now is, “How do I protect myself from something like this?” Fortunately, the solutions are simple, even if some of the biggest names in business around the globe missed them or were unable to use them.
A massive cyberattack on computers around the world on Friday could — and should — have been prevented. The blame for the cyberattack — a “ransomware” attack — rests on the NSA and Microsoft.
In a joint statement released on Monday, oil ministers from Russia and Saudi Arabia said the present crude oil production reduction agreement reached last November — put in place to raise crude prices — should be extended for another year, even though it is unlikely to work.
Hello, Bakken. Goodbye, OPEC. The latest report from North Dakota’s state oil and gas division showed that crude oil production for March is back up over a million barrels a day, an increase of nearly nine percent since December and almost double what the state produced five years ago, dooming OPEC's clout in the oil industry.
You might have heard about social-media and search engine censorship of conservative news sources: Twitter’s “shadowbanning,” Facebook’s news “curators,” and Google’s nine different blacklists. Well, The New American has some firsthand experience.
Bill Nye the Science Guy has transmuted into a screechy, preachy ubiquitous presence who wants to penalize you if you have more than two children, jail you if you disagree with his global-warming alarmism, and stigmatize you if you don’t adopt his transgender/pansexual views.
The latest release from WikiLeaks on the CIA’s hacking program — published Friday — reveals a tool CIA hackers use to attack a computer that is part of a Local Area Network (LAN). LANs are usually used to tie all of the computers in an office into a single network for the purposes of sharing resources including those used for security. This newly revealed CIA tool — codenamed Archimedes — turns the strength of a LAN against itself by leveraging any compromised computers against all others on the network.
On May 25, OPEC oil ministers will meet in Vienna to decide whether or not its present oil-output-cut agreement should be extended. Either way, OPEC’s doom as the prime determiner of world crude oil prices is likely sealed.
Former Vice President and self-styled inventor of the Internet Al Gore, infamous primarily for his many debunked prophecies about global-warming doom, is demanding another $15 trillion from humanity to supposedly save the planet from alleged man-made “climate change.” In a report produced by his new group of crony capitalists and tax-funded climate alarmists, dubbed the “Energy Transitions Commission” (ETC), Gore and his allies demand as much as $600 billion annually in tax money to help meet the goals laid out in the collapsing United Nations pseudo-treaty on climate known as the Paris Agreement. Critics, though, ridiculed Gore and his cronies, suggesting this was merely their latest scam to fleece taxpayers around the globe.
Hillary Clinton’s allegations that Russian hackers attempted to help President Trump’s campaign were dealt another in a series of setbacks based on facts when NASS (National Association of Secretaries of State) issued a report on the matter last month.
The surveillance hawks — it would appear — are never satisfied. When it comes to harvesting the data of American citizens, their mantra seems to be “too much is never enough.” The most recently revealed tool in the considerable arsenal of the surveillance state is a three-engine blimp equipped with eavesdropping apparatus.
