That attack technique has been used in the past to exploit Zero-Day vulnerabilities. It would also add weight to a claim by Kevin Mandia founder and head of Mandiant, the security firm hired to investigate the breach that the attack was one for which neither Sony nor other companies could have been fully prepared. Sony suffered the worst corporate hack attack in history last fall when a group of attackers going by the name Guardians of Peace first crippled itsnetwork andthen released sensitive corporate data on public file-sharing sites, including four unreleased featurefilms, business plans, contracts and the personal emails of top executives. Mandiant, the corporate parent of the security firm FireEye,declined to comment, as didSony and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Council wrestles with outdoor display zoning issue for Rockland Cargo Equipment | Rockdale Citizen

“Re-establishing bear hunting would not squarely address the issue of human food-habituated bears, which is the predominant reason bears and people are having negative interaction,” said Manley Fuller, president of the Florida Wildlife Federation. Besides, he pointed out, any hunting that might occur wouldn’t take place in the suburbs where the most bear complaints originate. Instead, it would be confined to the wilder parts of the state the forests and swamps where bears remain the largest predator. One place would still remain off-limits to hunters, Wiley said.

Virginia Beach helps Chesapeake replace traffic signs after major fire | WTKR.com

The church occupies the former movie theater next to Ayers business and that fronts Ga. 138. I am here tonight to ask you to give Mr. Ayers the opportunity you gave us, Lehman said, referring to the churchs move from Parker Road to the abandoned movie theater that most recently was the location of Crusade Dominion Church. The council appeared to favor Ayers request but was concerned that approving the change would set a problematic precedent. We need to find a way to allow this to happen but not open the door to problems down the road, Fountain said.

(WTKR) After a massive fire destroyed a Chesapeake storage building, the City of Virginia Beach Public Works Department took action to help replace lost trafficsigns. TheNovember 19th fire off Executive Blvd.destroyed theChesapeakePublic Works storage building. That building stored more than 80% of Chesapeakes new sign inventory. After the fire, Chesapeake Public Works rented some signs and also purchased a large number from Virginia Beach through the Regional Resource Sharing Program. We got an email from one of the gentlemen over in their traffic management shop asking if we could mass produce hundreds of signs that were lost in the fire, explained Frank Hickman with Virginia Beach Public Works. Since Virginia Beach has a full-fledged sign-shop capable of making just about any sign, Chesapeakes standard order was no problem.
