In 2017, two of the largest epidemics of cryptographers have already been recorded - we are talking about the notoriously sensational WannaCry and ExPetr (also Petya and NotPetya at the same time) - and now it looks like the third one is starting. This time the cryptographer is called Bad Rabbit - at least this name is written on the page in the darknet, on which its creators send for clarifying the details.
So far, several Russian media have been affected by this encryptor, including Interfax and Fontanka . Also about the hacker attack - possibly connected with the same Bad Rabbit, - the airport of Odessa informs.
For the decryption of files, attackers require 0.05 bitokoya, which is at the current rate approximately equivalent to 283 dollars or 15 700 rubles.

A Clark County judge granted a temporary restraining order Thursday to prevent MGM Resorts International from destroying any evidence related to the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
Lawyers for a California woman who was shot and critically wounded during the Oct. 1 concert filed a lawsuit last week, asking for a judge to stop MGM from destroying video surveillance or any information the casino operator may have related to gunman Stephen Paddock, who authorities have said frequented gambling establishments and fired on the festival crowd from a suite at Mandalay Bay.
The order was sought by attorneys who represent Rachel Sheppard, a California woman who survived the attack, despite being shot in the chest three times.

Social media can be an invaluable source of information for police when managing major disruptive events, new research from Cardiff University has shown.
An analysis of data taken from the London riots in 2011 showed that computer systems could automatically scan through Twitter and detect serious incidents, such as shops being broken in to and cars being set alight, before they were reported to the Metropolitan Police Service.
The computer system could also discern information about where the riots were rumoured to take place and where groups of youths were gathering. The new research, published in the peer-review journal ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, showed that on average the computer systems could pick up on disruptive events several minutes before officials and over an

A lawyer has pointed out that Theresa May’s demand for a public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire is suspicious. She’s also claiming that residents should be demanding an inquest, not a public inquiry, if they truly want justice.
People want answers
May visited the Grenfell Tower site in West London on Thursday 15 June to meet with firefighters. While not meeting with residents themselves, she made the following statement:
Right now people want answers, and it’s absolutely right, and that’s why I am today ordering a full public inquiry into this disaster. We need to know what happened; we need to have an explanation of this, we owe that to the families. To the people who have lost loved ones, friends, and the homes in which they lived.
These demands for a public inquiry have been it
