Trump-Russia Hysteria Holding Back Sensible Cyber Defense

The surface web consists of the stuff you see every day through your browser on your Internet connection, yet it only represents about 1 percent of what’s going on in the true world-wide web. Beyond the surface web lies the deep web. The deep web consists of content that cannot be found or accessed via your common surface web search engines and is intended to keep search crawlers out.

This where most of the cyber-criminals hang out in forums, obtain exploit kits and tools for hacking and trade credit card data, fake IDs, weapons, drugs and other banned substances on a variety of black markets in exchange for some form of BitCoin.

To give you a sense of scale, it is estimated that for every billion pages indexed on the surface web, there are 900 billion on the deep web.

But if you go below the deep web, you will find an even

Melania Trump mocked online after anti-bullying speech – BBC News

Media captionMelania Trump: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’

Melania Trump has found herself being relentlessly mocked online – after giving a speech on the dangers of cyber-bullying.

The US First Lady had set out combating cyber-bullying as one of her main priorities before entering the White House – although she is not believed to have set up a defined programme as yet.

Wednesday’s speech to the spouses of dozens of world leaders during the UN General Assembly was another chance to set out her agenda and focus for the next few years.

“No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorised, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn,” she said, urging others to heed her call for action.

Unfortunately, that message was lost somewhat as social media’s

Russian hackers feel the heat as Trump seeks … – News VietNamNet

When Alexander Vinnik was arrested on money-laundering charges at a Greek hotel in late July, the status of his Jabber secure online messaging account was set to “away”.

Russian hackers, money-laundering charges, President Donald Trump, improve relations

“He often takes some time to reply, so at first I didn’t think anything of it,” said one person who knew the Russian as an administrator of a digital currency exchange which U.S. prosecutors say was used to launder criminal funds.

“Then when I saw his picture on the news, I knew he would be ’away’ for a long time,” said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump seeks warmer ties with Russia, hackers rattled

When Alexander Vinnik was arrested on money-laundering charges at a Greek hotel in late July, the status of his Jabber secure online messaging account was set to “away”.

“He often takes some time to reply, so at first I didn’t think anything of it,” said one person who knew the Russian as an administrator of a digital currency exchange which US prosecutors say was used to launder criminal funds.

“Then when I saw his picture on the news, I knew he would be ‘away’ for a long time,” said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The US Justice Department says Vinnik facilitated crimes including computer hacking, fraud, and drug trafficking by laundering at least $4 billion through BTC-e, an exchange used to trade Bitcoin and other digital currencies, since 2011.

The 37-year-old faces up to 55 years in prison if extradited to the United States. He denies the allegations against him, according to

Russian Hackers Feel the Heat as Trump Seeks Warmer Moscow Ties

Vinnik is now one of seven Russians arrested or indicted on U.S. cyber crime charges this year. On average, just two Russian cyber criminals were extradited to the United States each year between 2010 and the start of this year, according to a Reuters review of U.S. Justice Department filings, Russian government statements and sources briefed on the matter.

The increase to a record level shows that although President Donald Trump is trying to improve relations with Moscow, the United States has not shied away from pursuing Russians suspected of cyber crime.

The prosecutions coincide with intensified scrutiny of Russian hackers since U.S. intelligence officials determined that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election using cyber warfare methods to help Trump.

The Kremlin has denied accusations it interfered in elections in the United States or elsewhere.

But U.S. opposition lawmakers have
