Pentagon to focus more on hack-proofing weapons

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 04:23
By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cyber attacks on U.S. weapons programs and manufacturers are a "pervasive" problem that requires greater attention, the top U.S. arms buyer said Thursday, saying that he would add cybersecurity to the Pentagon's guidelines for buying weapons. "It’s about the security of our weapons systems themselves and everything that touches them. It’s a pervasive problem and I think we have to pay a lot more attention to it," Defense Undersecretary Frank Kendall told Reuters after a speech to the American Society of Naval Engineers in Washington. Kendall said he planned to add cybersecurity to the next phase of his "better buying power" initiative, and was also working on a special section on cybersecurity requirements to be added to the Pentagon's guidelines for buying weapons.

Portland woman sues restaurant over treatment during solo Valentine's dinner

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 04:17
By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - A Portland woman is suing a local restaurant owner and business manager for $100,000, saying she was booted out of the establishment on Valentine's Day because of her race and for dining alone, the woman said on Thursday.  Kathleen Hampton, who filed the lawsuit in Multnomah County Circuit Court last week, said she made reservations for two at Enzo’s Caffe Italiano on Valentine's Day in northeast Portland but ended up going alone when her husband was not hungry.  Hampton said she was seated at a table and given a complimentary glass of wine because she had to wait. Hampton also said she believes she was treated rudely because she is African-American.  “I was just in tears. I’ve never had anything like this happen to me before, especially in my community.”  Restaurant owner Enzo Lanzadoro, who is named in the suit along with business manager Nick Lanzadoro, said that is not what happened.  “Whatever she’s saying is totally fabricated and not true at all,” he told Reuters, adding that he established a policy for Valentine’s Day that the restaurant could have no open seats and so she was asked to move to the bar or outside seating.
