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. The details of

BERLIN police said Wednesday its officers were “only human” after they were kicked off the security force for next week’s G20 summit over hardcore partying that earned them hero status from the German capital’s clubbing scene. Around 220 officers from Berlin were unceremoniously released from duty by the Hamburg authorities hosting the July 7-8 summit after they threw a wild party that involved public sex, brawling, urinating in a group and a bathrobe-clad female officer strip-dancing with her service weapon. “Yes, we partied,” the Berlin police force acknowledged in a statement on Facebook. Two officers were celebrating their birthdays, and their colleagues decided to throw a party inside the fenced-off grounds of their temporary container accommodation, the police departme

The country's very first "liberal" mosque is set to open its doors on Friday in the capital - and inside a Protestant church. The brainchild behind the mosque is feminist, peace activist and lawyer Seyran Ates, who moved to Germany from Turkey at the age of six. It will allow men and women to pray and preach together rather than separately. “Fundamentally, the mosque’s door is open for everyone, with one exception: No one will come in with a niqab or burqa,” Ates told Spiegel Online. “This is for security reasons, and also it is our belief that full-face veils have nothing to do with religion, but rather are a political statement.” Lesbians, gay men, and transgender believers will also be welcome. Ates explained that she felt it was “ultimately irresponsible” as a progressive

German scientists from the Technical University of Munich have developed an imaging technology that uses Wi-Fi signals to construct 3D hologram images. This could be used to assist in search and rescue operations after disasters. A WHOLE NEW VIEW If you’ve played any of the recent Batman video games, you’re probably already familiar with his ability to scan through walls using one of the many gadgets he has at his disposal. In real life, German scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) may have developed a technology that could give you a similar Batman-esque skill. What makes it even cooler? Basically all it takes is a Wi-Fi signal. “It can basically scan a room with someone’s Wi-Fi transmission,” Philipp Holl said, speaking to Business Insider. Holl and TUM pr

100 Years Ago Today: Woodrow Wilson Urges Congress to Declare War on Germany Beginning World War 1

Military, Whom It May
A hundred years ago today Woodrow Wilson addressed congress to suggest that we were needed in the fight against Germany. Gentlemen of the Congress: I have called the Congress into extraordinary session because there are serious, very serious, choices of policy to be made, and made immediately, which it was neither right nor constitutionally permissible that I should assume the responsibility of making. On the third of February last I officially laid before you the extraordinary announcement of the Imperial German Government that on and after the first day of February it was its purpose to put aside all restraints of law or of humanity and use its submarines to sink every vessel that sought to approach either the ports of Great Britain and Ireland or the western coasts of Europe or a...

Germany demands repetition of Kiev Maidan, Germany to run Greece’s tourist airports

Economy, Latest News
The debt problem continues to erode the European Union from within – it is already impossible to hide, and Greek tragedy, for example, is growing. Against this background, Germany seems to have a consensus about how to get rid of Greece with its debts and inefficient economy. The scheme of this careless schoolboy by the ear from the class, it seems, differs only in details: either to expel or allow suffering - to provoke the Maidan in Athens, and then to expel in any case. Bavaria’s 50-year-old finance minister and CSU politician Markus Soeder became the declarant of this ‘plan B’, who stated about the necessity of ‘a plan B’. “New billions should only flow when Athens implemented all the reforms. Even then, however, aid should only be given against a pledge "in the form of cash,

What Do Europeans Really Think About Muslim Immigration?

Europe, Latest News, Mainstream Headline News
New research points to significant and widespread levels of public anxiety over immigration from mainly Muslim states. President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban citizens of seven Muslim-majority states from entering the US for 90 days, and temporarily freeze all refugee arrivals (including Syrians indefinitely), has been interpreted widely as an attempt to curtail the inward migration of Muslims, which Trump and his supporters argue pose a threat to national security. Trump’s policy has generated a backlash among some of Europe’s leaders. Angela Merkel’s spokesman said the chancellor had ‘explained’ the UN Refugee Convention to the president in a phone call discussing the order, while London Mayor Sadiq Khan argued that the invitation to the president for a state visit to Bri

Police under fire for racial profiling in Germany after telling refugees to stay away from Carnival

Europe, Latest News, Mainstream Headline News
Law enforcement in North Rhine-Westphalia have come in for strong criticism after they sent a letter to refugee homes, telling them to keep refugees away from Karneval celebrations. In the incendiary letter, police told refugee home administrators that they should not organize trips for their residents to the Karneval celebrations, since these could lead to “undesired interactions” with the general public. Last year various groups last year had organized outings with refugees and Germans to introduce newcomers to the tradition. The letter further told refugee home workers to tell their residents to allow themselves to "undergo police searches without complaint.”   Police have confirmed the existence of the letter.
