The incident affected the internal systems of TTC, in particular the mail server and the TTC Vision communication system for drivers.
The ransomware attack disrupted Toronto’s public transit department and shut down several systems used by drivers and passengers.
How reported The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), the attack was discovered last week by a TTC employee who noted “unusual network activity.” The impact of the attack was minimal at first, but then intensified as “hackers extended their attack on network servers.”
The incident affected the internal systems of TTC, in particular the mail server and the TTC Vision communication system for drivers. In this regard, the drivers of public transport had to temporarily switch to the classical radio communication system.
In addition to the TTC backup system, the incident also affected the servers serving passengers, including the Wheel-Trans portal for people with disabilities.
In addition, the attack affected the ability to display real-time public transport traffic information on station platform screens, travel planning apps and the TTC website.
Despite the attack, public transport was not disrupted, and buses, trams and metro operated as usual.
To date, none of the cyber ransomware groups have claimed responsibility for the incident. …
Nvidia lost. LHR mining protection is also hacked under Linux. This was done by NBMiner developers
Two days have passed since the NiceHash developers cracked the Nvidia LHR protection, as the NBMiner team also pleased their users with the same news. Only this time we are talking about software for Linux.
Thus, Nvidia’s protection completely fell for both Windows and Linux. Unfortunately, both programs are closed source, so it’s not clear what mechanisms the developers used to hack.
Whether the loss of Nvidia will affect the availability and prices of video cards is still difficult to say. At the moment, the cryptocurrency market continues to fall, but sooner or later it will turn around, and gamers may again face shortages and overpriced graphics cards.

“These are machines for sucking out personal data.” Prayer and mental health apps have poor security
Mental health apps have worse privacy protection than most other types of apps, according to a new analysis by Mozilla. We are talking about the entire category as a whole. In addition, things are also bad for prayer applications.
The vast majority of mental health and prayer apps are exceptionally creepy. They track a variety of data, share and capitalize on users’ most intimate personal thoughts and feelings, such as mood, mental state, and biometric data.
The team analyzed 32 mental health and prayer apps. Of these apps, 29 received a Privacy not included warning, indicating that the team is concerned about how the app manages user data.
These applications collect large amounts of personal data in accordance with vague privacy policies. Most applications have also been found to have poor security practices that allow users to create accounts with weak passwords. Considering how much personal information such programs can contain, this is a bad feature.
The list of the worst programs according to the specified criteria included Better Help, Youper, Woebot, Better Stop Suicide, Pray.com and Talkspace. In particular, the Woebot chatbot claims to collect information about users and shares this data for advertising purposes, and Talkspace collects transcripts of user chats.
They work like data-sucking machines with the look and feel of a mental health app. In other words: wolves in sheep’s clothing
