UK Parliament Suffers Sustained Cyber-Attack As All MPs Targeted By Hackers, Sources Tell HuffPost

Source: Huffington Post

But Friday’s incident was unprecedented because it appears to have targeted all Parliamentary addresses.

An email passed to HuffPost UK reveals the seriousness of the incident as hackers were found to have been “carrying out a sustained and determined attack on all Parliamentary user accounts in attempt to identify weak passwords”.

A former US intelligence expert told the Guardian recently that a British political party could soon be the victim of a hack similar to those suffered by the Clinton and Macron presidential campaigns.

James Norton, a former official at the US Department of Homeland Security and head of the security consultancy Play-Action Strategies, told the paper: “It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s already been some emails stolen … it would surprise me if it didn’t happen.”

Flowering Caladium

When I bought these Caladium last week at the nursery they appeared to have extra leaves that had not yet opened. This morning I woke to a nice surprise: Flowers that looked, to me, like Jack in the Pulpit. Not sure what to call this type of flower but they are so cool!

APNewsBreak: Gianforte to plead guilty to assault charge

Source: Associated Press

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — U.S. Rep.-elect Greg Gianforte of Montana will plead guilty to assaulting a reporter the day before being elected the state's only congressman last month, a prosecutor said Friday.

The Republican technology entrepreneur will enter his plea in court on Monday, when he is scheduled to be arraigned and sentenced on the misdemeanor charge, Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert told The Associated Press.

Gianforte requested the court hearing after reaching a civil settlement this week.

Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs over claims that Gianforte knocked Jacobs to the ground when the reporter asked him a question May 24.

As part of the settlement, Jacobs said he would not object to Gianforte entering a plea of no contest, or nolo contendere, meaning Gianforte would concede to the charge without admitting guilt.

But Lambert said Gianforte will plead guilty.

"He is not going to be entering a nolo contendere plea," Lambert said. "He's going to be pleading guilty."

Gianforte spokesman Shane Scanlon did not return telephone and text messages seeking comment.

Misdemeanor assault convictions in Montana carry a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a $500 fine.
