Time to change your #passwords again, thanks Yahoo. But are #passwordmanagers safe to use? http://bit.ly/2cXe1es
Creating and remembering a plethora of strong, unique passwords can be a challenge, even for security experts. Here’s why they say password managers’ “benefits outweigh the risks.”

Goodbye Yahoo.Recent flood of spam porn was enough to make Yahoo a vile place to log onto and it has always caused the most problems in the past. Reducing sites which require more passwords increases quality of life.

Just as many companies use strategic tactics to increase brand awareness, the cybercriminals behind Petya and Mischa #ransomware use their own set of tricks to make their malware stand out from the rest. http://bit.ly/2cRlBve
Avast takes a deeper look into how Petya and Mischa authors market the double ransomware on the darknet

Hacker doing good: #EpiPencil hack costs a fraction of #EpiPen (exclusive) http://bit.ly/2cCvbyq

This is not an equivalent to a commercial epinephrine auto-injector.
Point 1: The Autoinject 2 used in the instructions is made to inject at a different depth than the epinephrine injectors (subcutaneous vs intramuscular). This will change the effect of the medication administered.
Point 2: Epinephrine solution cannot be drawn up manually into a syringe and left for use at an indefinite future date. Nursing team advice recommends discarding manually pre-loaded syringes within 12-24 hours.
And finally, Point 3 (which was a red flag to me): "Doctor" Michael Laufer is not an MD. His PhD is in mathematics. He says as much on the site where the "Epipencil" instructions are hosted (fourthievesvinegar.org/faq) and admits it freely on Twitter as well. He does not have the health care experience to advise use of this device.

Can you trust your employees to keep company data secure? http://bit.ly/2cS3Rjd #smallbusinesssaturday #smb
Do you trust employees with corporate data? If so, it's time to see how they put you in danger with just a simple public wi-fi connection.

Petulant or not, it's important to keep talking of the disastrous conditions in which north Koreans are forced to leave, unable to chose their own life. Approximately 20mln people are kept prisoners in their own house, not to mention all of the families in South Korea who had relatives in the north and were unable to meet each other forever after they closed the borders. It's a shame that in 2016 still a closed absolute and tyrannical dictatorship that don't care about the well being of their citizenship is going on almost undisturbed.
