    Hacker gangs show few signs of slowing after pipeline attack

    Many of the world’s largest cybercrime gangs are still actively hacking and extorting victims, undeterred by the international spotlight after one of their peers hacked a U.S. fuel pipeline. A Russian-affiliated hacker gang, DarkSide, disappeared last week after it hacked Colonial Pipeline, which provides fuel for much of the U.S. East Coast. That prompted the company to shut down operations for five days, leading to gas shortages in the U.S. and condemnation from President Joe Biden. Seemingly spooked, DarkSide, which had collected around $5 million in ransom from the company, claimed that it was “apolitical” on its main website, which […] More

    Airfare Data Firm ATPCO Recalibrates for Post-Pandemic Flying

However, coronavirus and other factors have upended the storefront’s priorities. A New Chapter “There’s been a bit of a pause on the development,” said Seth Anagnostis, Routehappy’s head of retailing. “When we set out, our intent […] More

    It’s been more than a year since the majority of the global workforce were relegated to their home offices. As more people receive the Covid-19 vaccine, companies have been slowly planning on bringing workers back to offices.

The announcement said that those who have received the vaccine don’t have to wear masks or adhere to social distancing requirements under certain conditions. These relaxed rules now have companies in the US wondering whether they should bring workers in earlier […] More

    Great Scott! 5 Must See Terrible Time Travel Movies

    Let me stipulate up front: Time travel is science fiction, not science. When NASA says, “Humans can’t hop into a time machine and go back in time,” that’s good enough for me. Of all the movies I’ve seen, the 2004 indie-film Primer does the best job of making time travel sound like a real thing. Still, since there is literally no real science to time travel, you have to wonder why we label such films “science fiction.” Chalk it up to tradition. It’s been that way for a century and a quarter, ever since H.G. Wells wrote The Time Machine […] More

    More evidence that the demand for travel is going through the roof – though not exactly what you want to hear if you happen to work for Hawaiian Airlines. An abundance of phone calls, as well as visits to Hawaiian’s website, proved to be overwhelming last week, as the volume simply swamped the airline and knocked its reservation systems off-line, according to the Honolulu Civil Beat. ADVERTISING Hawaiian was forced to apologize to all customers unable to book flights either online or by phone.
