Seeing as how Russians just learned about gravity, they might be curious what viruses do.
Russian cyber actors are targeting organizations involved in coronavirus vaccine development, according to a new warning by US, UK and Canadian security officials on Thursday that details activity by a Russian hacking group called APT29, which also goes by the name “the Dukes” or “Cozy Bear.”
An advisory published by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) details activity by the Russian hacking group and explicitly calls out efforts to target US, UK and Canadian vaccine research and development organizations.
“APT29’s campaign of malicious activity is ongoing, predominantly against government, diplomatic, think tank, healthcare and energy targets to steal valuable intellectual property,” a press release on the advisory said.
Cozy Bear is one of two hacking groups linked to Russian intelligence that is believed to have accessed the Democratic National Committee’s internal systems in the lead-up to the 2016 US election, but Thursday’s announcement is the first time this group has been named in connection to cyberattacks related to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s possible that is just her heart beating again.
I’m in shock.
Trump just declared he raised $141 MILLION last month.
And he just touched down in Atlanta for a massive event to rile up his base and raise even more.
I cannot overstate the importance of what I’m about to ask:
Can you rush in $5 before midnight to make Trump’s stunt completely BACKFIRE, overpower his haul, and replace every last Republican with a Democrat?
I need 10,000 gifts before midnight to prove to Trump:
Democrats will stop at NOTHING to defeat him, and anyone who stands in the way.
Can I count on your $5 before midnight?
The buy-cott is utterly stomping the boycott.

The Goya Foods boycott is an insult to Hispanics, America’s largest minority group. Politicians and pundits — some Hispanic, many others painfully woke-white — are calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic food manufacturer and distributor in the nation, a company that employs more than 4,000 people.
The Bodega and Small Business Association, which represents thousands of New York City bodegas, is not taking this lying down. We are urging our stores and customers to stock up on all of Goya’s great products.
We are calling for a Goya buycott.
It all began after Bob Unanue, Goya’s CEO, committed the grave sin this month of praising President Trump. As The New York Times reported, the backlash surged following Unanue’s recent visit to the White House, where he dared to suggest that America was “blessed” to have Trump as its leader. Cue the Twitter hysterics.
Multiple celebrities and politicians are having their accounts compromised and are Tweeting gibberish or links to send Bitcoin.
Can’t say I care too much. But it is funny as hell to see @jack tweeting links to porn.
The woman on the bullhorn is Danialle Inez James, she’s a fixture in Portland and Seattle protests. A paid protester and a radical Communist. She is one of the regional leaders of BLM and Antifa in the Pacific Northwest.
Add this to the long list of reasons he won’t win.
At least someone is doing well?

BANKS WILL MAKE out with $18 billion in fees for processing small business Paycheck Protection Program relief loans during the pandemic, according to calculations by Amanda Fischer, policy director at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, a progressive economic think tank.
That’s money taken directly out of the overall $640 billion pot of funding Congress allocated to the program it created as part of the CARES Act. “If we did it through a public institution, there would be [more than] $140 billion left,” Fischer noted, as opposed to the $130 billion still up for grabs. The Washington Center for Equitable Growth is releasing an analysis of the government response to the pandemic as soon as this week.
Combine this with the fact that 20% of Democrats last month polled said they believe Biden is demented (medically).
A New York Times columnist has urged likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden not to debate President Trump in the fall. Most voters think that’s a bad idea, although only just over half believe Biden is even up to debating Trump given ongoing questions about his mental health.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden is capable of debating the president. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree and say he is not capable of such a debate. Another 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
