Senior U.S. Homeland Security cyber official Larry Zelvin to retire

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 06:37
Larry Zelvin, the head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's center for countering cyber threats, is retiring next month after a government career of nearly 30 years during which he advised U.S. businesses on fighting hostile hackers. Zelvin helped coordinate efforts to advise U.S. banks as they responded to denial of service attacks believed to have originated from Iran, which disrupted their websites in recent years. He also assisted U.S. retailers looking to prevent cyber attacks on their point of sales systems after last year's unprecedented breach at Target Corp. A spokesman said a successor has not been named to run the agency's National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) in suburban Maryland, which helps government agencies and private firms identify and respond to cyber attacks.

Kennedy cousin tries to stop tapes being played in murder retrial

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 06:13

Skakel reacts to being granted bail during his hearing at Stamford Superior Court, in Stamford, ConnecticutBy Richard Weizel STAMFORD Conn. (Reuters) - Michael Skakel, a Kennedy cousin awaiting retrial after serving 11 years in prison for the murder of a teenage girl in Connecticut, wants to stop incriminating audiotapes from being used again as evidence, according to court filings on Wednesday. One of Skakel's attorneys, Stephan Seegar, filed two motions in Stamford's superior court to keep recordings of a 1997 interview with writer Richard Hoffman from being presented as evidence, as they were during Skakel's first trial in 2002. The tapes include Skakel describing how he masturbated in a tree outside the home of 15-year-old neighbor Martha Moxley the night before she was beaten to death with a golf club in October 1975. Skakel says on the recording he "drank rum and tonics" at a local club, then climbed a tree outside Moxley's house while drunk and feeling "horny." He states on the recording: "I remember thinking, 'Oh my God, if I tell anybody that I was out that night, they're gonna say I did it." Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy, the widow of slain U.S. Senator Robert Kennedy, was convicted of Moxley's murder in 2002 as an adult in a highly publicized trial.
