    Separating eggs can be a fiddly business with the potential to ruin dishes such as meringues or carbonara if you don't get it right.  But now a home cook has revealed a clever hack for easily separating eggs, by rubbing your fingers on brown bread and lifting the yolk up.

    Christopher Krebs' tenure as director of the agency in charge of cybersecurity is drawing new scrutiny after this week's revelation of a wide-ranging cyber attack on the US government.    The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) wrote in an alert this week that 'U.S. government agencies, critical infrastructure entities, and private sector organizations' were compromised, beginning as early as March 2020, with all signs pointing to Russia.  The attack appears to have targeted at least the Departments of Energy, State, Defense, Homeland Security, Treasury and Commerce and began during Krebs' tenure as director of CISA.   Fox News slammed Krebs and noted that the hack began on Krebs' watch, though his name hasn't come up often in relation to the incident. Krebs was fired by Trump last month after he publicly dismissed the president's claims of fraud in the presidential election. Former CISA director Christopher Krebs is drawing new scrutiny with the hack...

    (CNN)An attack on Twitter this past week exposed an alarming reality less than four months before the United States' presidential election: social media companies, the government and American citizens are all dangerously unprepared for the "black swan" events that could throw the election into chaos. On Wednesday, about 130 Twitter accounts of prominent people, including Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Elon Musk, were hacked. The hackers sent out tweets from the compromised accounts asking people for Bitcoin payments. While it was fixing the problem, Twitter temporarily suspended all verified accounts. Kara Alaimo The incident revealed that, four years after Americans learned how easily an election can be manipulated via social media, the country is still not close to safeguarding the 2020 election. A big part of the problem is that, as Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote in his book "The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable," when...
    Twitter appears to have completely disabled the ability for some accounts to send new tweets following a massive hack on the social media website, which has seen numerous popular accounts, including Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, and others, tweet out a bitcoin scam. While Twitter hasn’t confirmed how the block works, it appears to only apply to accounts that have been verified by Twitter. Unverified accounts appear to still be able to tweet normally, and verified accounts appear to be able to retweet existing tweets. It’s unclear how broadly Twitter has disabled the ability to send new tweets, or how long it will be before verified users are able to tweet again. A Tweet from Twitter confirming that some users may be unable to Tweet also notes that password resets may be disabled while Twitter works to correct the situation. You may be unable to Tweet...

    In early 2017, WikiLeaks began publishing details of top-secret CIA hacking tools that researchers soon confirmed were part of a large tranche of confidential documents stolen from one of the agency's isolated, high-security networks. The leak—comprising as much as 34 terabytes of information and representing the CIA's biggest data loss in history—was the result of "woefully lax" practices, according to portions of a report that were published on Tuesday. Vault 7, as WikiLeaks named its leak series, exposed a trove of the CIA's most closely guarded secrets. They included a simple command line that agency officers used to hack network switches from Cisco and attacks that compromised Macs, in one case using a tool called Sonic Screwdriver, which exploited vulnerabilities in the extensible firmware interface that Apple used to boot devices. The data allowed researchers from security firm Symantec to definitively tie the CIA to a hacking group they had...
    Sog be gone. When eating leftover pizza, lazy consumers face a choice: Eat a slice cold or have it hot but soggy after reheating in the microwave. Domino’s has revealed a quick hack for pizza lovers to reheat their slice quickly while maintaining some of its crispy texture. “For those feeling next level hangry, who are keen to get stuck into their leftovers but want to step it up from the fridge, this hack goes down as the easiest (but not necessarily the most reliable) in history,” reads a blog posted to the Domino’s Australia website on May 18. “To prevent a soggy slice, add a half-full cup of water to the microwave with your pizza and heat for around 30 seconds.” The chain warns that the trick, while worth trying, has mixed results. “Crispiness not guaranteed, but worth a shot,” the explainer, titled “Microwave magic,” concludes. Some pizza aficionados...
    Chinese and Iranian actors attempted to hack the Biden and Trump campaigns, a Google official announced Thursday. The attempts were apparently unsuccessful, and the campaigns have been briefed.  Google Threat Analysis Group official Shane Huntley tweeted that his group recently "saw China APT [advanced persistent threat] group targeting Biden campaign staff & Iran APT targeting Trump campaign staff with phishing. No sign of compromise. We sent users our govt attack warning and we referred to fed law enforcement." The reported hack attempts are a reminder that foreign actors continue to try to interfere in U.S. politics, as the nation heads into what promises to be a bitter presidential election. In 2016, successful hacks on the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta led to troves of emails that were released just before Election Day.  "We are aware of reports from Google that a foreign actor has made unsuccessful...
    The death of George Floyd sparked Rangers prospect K’Andre Miller to speak out Monday for the first time about being the target of hundreds of racial slurs while conducting an online Q&A with fans after signing his NHL contract. “I’ve struggled for months to find the words to express my frustration and anger over the Zoom conference call incident when I was to be introduced after signing my NHL contract,” the 20-year-old black defenseman wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “It’s something that I won’t ever forget.” Miller waited to address the April chat hacking because “it seemed like there were so many other priorities in the world, that it wasn’t my place to speak out,” he said, referencing the coronavirus. But the death of Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was killed by a white police officer last week in Minneapolis, and the protests that followed, prompted Miller,...
