Reports are in that Russian hackers from the government have broken into the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) servers🗄 in search of material to use against Republican nominee Donald Trump. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz acknowledged the breach and said have sought assistance from the security firm CrowdStrike to rid themselves of the hackers. Wasserman said, “When we discovered the intrusion, we treated this like the serious incident it is and reached out to CrowdStrike immediately.”
The anonymous hackers are being called Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear by CrowdStrike. One group was reading emails and going through files. Both groups, though they operate independently, have been known to engage in political espionage🕵 and are believed to be linked with Russia’s secret services. CrowdStrike said, “Our team considers them some of the best adversaries out of all the numerous nation-state, criminal and hacktivist/terrorist groups we encounter on a daily basis.”
Recently, reports of smartphones exploding have been on the increase. This is mainly due to Samsung’s latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which has a faulty battery and has led to many explosions of the device.
According to ADH Xiaomi Mi Max and Mi 4c has just joined the list of exploding devices in China.
The two smartphones in question are the Xiaomi Mi Max and the Xiaomi Mi 4c, both of which were only recently launched by the Chinese company. The first case of explosion occurred earlier this month and involved the 6.44-inch Mi Max phablet. In the incident, the device was being charged with the official charger in a home and it exploded, which caused a fire and also damaged the home. The device was bought from Xiaomi’s official online store. In the second case, a man had his Mi 4c in his back pocket and it exploded, which caused him to suffer third-degree burns to his hips. It is still unclear what caused the explosion. The Mi 4c was also purchased directly from Xiaomi’s website.
Reports by the Central News Agency, Xiaomi has appointed a third-party organization to investigate both cases of explosion. It has also been reported that the company has said that both incidents are accidents and will be offering compensation to all affected victims. However, this is not the first time the Chinese smartphone maker has been linked to cases of smartphone explosions. Back in early August, it was reported that a Xiaomi Mi 5, which is the company’s current flagship device, exploded, with images of the aftermath surfacing on Weibo, a popular social media platform in China. A Xiaomi Mi 4i was also reported to have exploded, a week before the Xiaomi Mi 5 incident surfaced.

Donald Trump’s Personal Info Hacked and Leaked Online By Anonymous.
Don’t like Donald Trump? Neither does the hacktivist group, ‘Anonymous’ In fact, they don’t like him so much that they’ve gone out of their way to threaten Trump and have distributed Trump’s personal information online. They’ve allegedly posted his home address, social security number, birth certificate and phone numbers onto Pastebin.
WHAT IS PASTEBIN?
Pastebin is a site that ‘hackers’ usually use to distribute information which is stolen from Sony’s film studio, but it’s everywhere now, even Twitter.
Trump’s spokesperson said that the police are seeking to arrest those responsible for the hack, but hasn’t provided any further details.
There may also be a connection between Anonymous and a letter received by Trump’s son, Eric, which has threatened to harm his children if his father continues to contest.
