Sally Beauty Breach: Link to Target?

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Tracy KittenNow that Sally Beauty Holdings Inc. has acknowledged payment card data was exposed during a recent cyber-attack, security experts are debating whether the incident is connected to the Target Corp. and Neiman Marcus malware-related breaches.On March 17, the cosmetics supplies retailer and distributor noted in a statement that details on fewer than 25,000 credit and debit accounts were illegally accessed and “may have been removed.” Track 2 data on cards was exposed, the company says. That includes the cardholder’s name, account number and encrypted PIN, as well as card value verification three-digit security codes.“We do not believe that sensitive information, (other than card numbers) such as Social Security numbers or dates of birth, was compromised as part of this issue,” the retailer states in an updated FAQ posted to its site March 17. “In addition, Sally Beauty does not collect PIN data and, therefore, it should not be at risk.”Sally Beauty’s InvestigationSally Beauty on March 5 said its systems detected a possible network intrusion. An investigation was then launched. Then, after news of a possible breach broke, the company responded by saying it had no reason to believe that any payment data or consumer information had been exposed, based on its investigation into the security incident. continue reading »last_img read more

The Bucks traded two future second-round draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets, where Kidd had been coach, as compensation. He inherited a team that won 15 games in 2013-14. Under Kidd, the Bucks had a regular-season record of 139-152.Milwaukee is 9-12 since going a season-high five games over .500 on Dec. 9.Asked whether he believed Kidd should have been fired, Antetokounmpo, who reportedly offered to go to the team’s owners to try to save Kidd’s job, said: “It’s in the front office’s hands. Whatever they can do to make this team a championship level team, it can happen. If it’s me being traded, or the coach being fired.”Kidd is the second coach to be fired since the Bucks selected Antetokounmpo with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 draft. Antetokounpmo played one season under Larry Drew, who was dismissed in June 2014.“I was only 18,” Antetokoummpo said. “I didn’t even know how the NBA worked. (Kidd’s firing) hurts a little bit more because he was here for 3 1/2 years. He trusted me. He put the ball in my hands. He pushed me to be great.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments PH military to look into China’s possible security threat to power grid Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘We cannot afford to fail’ as SEA Games host – Duterte Madrid stunned by Leganes at home, eliminated from Copa SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais Jordan delivers on promise: 2 Cobra choppers now in PH BeautyMNL open its first mall pop-up packed with freebies, discounts, and other exclusives Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next ‘A complete lie:’ Drilon refutes ‘blabbermouth’ Salo’s claims Antetokounmpo is expected to return to action when the Bucks take on Brooklyn in Milwaukee on Friday.

I’m ready to go,” he said. “I feel energized.”Prunty said his players “gave good energy” in the first full practice since he took the reins.“These are a tough few days,” Prunty said. “We need to focus on whether we are getting better.”The Bucks have said that Prunty will be considered for the permanent job after the season. The hire will be especially crucial as the Bucks prepare to move into a new arena.“It’s hard to talk about that aspect of it right now,” Prunty said. “This isn’t about me, especially under these circumstances.”Malcolm Brogdon, last season’s NBA Rookie of the Year, praised Prunty’s positive demeanor.“In times of struggle, we tend to pout and take our foot off the gas.

After Missouri President Resigns, Ben Shapiro Says It’s Time To End All College Football

first_imgA general view of Missouri's football field.COLUMBIA, MO – OCTOBER 19: A general view of Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium during the game between the Florida Gators and the Missouri Tigers on October 19, 2013 in Columbia, Missouri. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)Monday morning, University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned amid student protests – namely one by the football team – regarding inaction despite mounting racial tension on campus. Some have criticized the team. Others are focusing on how powerful football players, collectively, have become. One person – political commentator Ben Shapiro – has a completely different take.Shapiro, who is the editor-in-chief at The Daily Wire (among other responsibilities/titles) penned a piece Monday afternoon, calling for the end of college football. He believes that the loyalty to universities is now “centered” around loyalty to sports performance. Here’s more:College sports are a relic of a time when students actually engaged in being, you know, students. As in studying things. Studying, perhaps, to gain a skill set besides kicking a football or tackling another man or tossing a sphere through a hoop.It soon became clear, however, that loyalty to universities centered around loyalty to sports performance. Donors began giving cash to football programs in order to generate enthusiasm about the university more broadly. And in order to boost those football programs, universities began recruiting the best players without the best academics.Shapiro goes on to discuss his views on the financials of college athletics, recruiting practices, and academics. You can read the whole column here.Clearly, this isn’t going to happen anytime soon – college football is far too important to too many people. What do you think, college football fans? Are any of Shapiro’s points valid?last_img read more

Indias oil imports from Iran slide by 57 during April

first_imgNEW DELHI: India’s oil imports from Iran fell about 57 percent year-on-year in April, according to tanker arrival data seen by Reuters, the last month when New Delhi was allowed to load Iranian oil ahead of U.S. sanctions stopping purchases of oil from the OPEC member. India, Iran’s top oil client after China, shipped in about 277,600 barrels per day (bpd) of oil from Tehran in April, down about 31.5 percent from the previous month, preliminary tanker arrival data from shipping and industry sources showed. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThe United States introduced sanctions in November but gave a six-month waiver to eight nations, including India, which allowed them to import some Iranian oil. India was allowed to buy an average 300,000 bpd of oil during November-April, but actual volumes varied from month to month due to lack of ships after foreign shipping lines backed out of Iranian deals under pressure from U.S. sanctions. In April, Washington asked buyers of Iranian oil, mostly in Asia, to halt purchases or face sanctions.

The two vessels were loaded in April. Since November, when India received the sanctions waiver, only state-run Indian Oil Corp, Bharat Petroleum Corp, Hindustan Petroleum and Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals have been buying Iranian oil. India’s overall imports from Iran in January to April 2019 fell nearly 45 percent to 304,500 bpd compared with 552,000 bpd a year ago, the data showed. The sources declined to be identified as they were not authorised to speak with media.last_img read more
