Two days ago Notepad++ website was taken down by muslim hackers and replaced content of website with some kind of "message" about how muslim are victims, because creator of Notepad++ created version "Je Suis Charlie". Now, everything's back to normal, but I managed to save copy.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis filed for bankruptcy protection in the wake of yet another clergy sexual abuse scandal, becoming the 12th US diocese to do so. It's funny how the right wing keeps telling us how we could have prevented the killings in the schools if only we had kept God in them. How many child molestation/rape cases did God prevent in his churches?

The US healthprovider Anthem lost personal data (including social security numbers) of 38 million clients to hackers. All it takes is the name and social security number of a person for a thief to e-file a fraudulent tax rebate claim. The tax authorities simply pay out even though thousands of these claims go to the same address. The victim is the real person who is told that a rebate has already been paid when a legitimate claim is filed.

It something like this happens to you, a credit freeze is better than credit monitoring, at least in the US. This stops any new attempts to access your credit report, so unless a lending institution issues credit cards or loans without checking, nothing can be obtained in your name.

From http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0497-credit-freeze-faqs

Contact each of the nationwide credit reporting companies:
Equifax — 1‑800‑525‑6285
Experian —1‑888‑397‑3742
TransUnion — 1‑800‑680‑7289

You'll need to supply your name, address, date of birth, Social Security number and other personal information. Fees vary based on where you live, but commonly range from $5 to $10.

After receiving your freeze request, each credit reporting company will send you a confirmation letter containing a unique PIN (personal identification number) or password. Keep the PIN or password in a safe place. You will need it if you choose to lift the freeze.

Anthem has just upped the count to 80 million personal information records. Phishing e-mail to obtain credit card numbers and bank accounts is already in full swing using the stolen info.

Calls for a safer internet protocol are getting louder, something along the line of bitcoin.

Information like your name, birthday and social security number will be with you for the rest of your life, and if stolen can also be abused by criminals for the same length of time. A sobering fact that should convince these thoughtless companies to keep records more secure.
