Couple’s sexless marriage is ‘weird, weird, weird’ says Yahoo Newsroom

Couple’s sexless marriage is ‘weird, weird, weird’ says Yahoo Newsroom“People can do what they want. But the marriage is a joke.” “Huh? Am I missing something here?” Two friends of Tiffany Trump’s are in the spotlight after exchanging “unconditional, unconventional” vows for a sexless marriage. The story jumped to the “top-trending” category on Yahoo Newsroom, sparking thousands of skeptical comments.
New York socialites Quentin Esme Brown and Peter Cary Peterson tied the knot in Las Vegas (where first daughter Tiffany served as flower girl). On social media, the best friends turned husband and wife made clear that theirs will be a sexless, open marriage. Brown explained on Instagram, “Peter and I are not romantically involved — in fact we are still dating others and will continue to seek love in all forms — we are just each other’s hearts and wish to begin our journey towards evolution.” Their nontraditional relationship status raised one question over and over in the Yahoo comments: Why bother? One especially suspicious reader guessed that it’s a “business partnership and fraud.”

House of horrors for 13 siblings: Yahoo Newsroom reacts

House of horrors for 13 siblings: Yahoo Newsroom reacts“No punishment in the world will make up for the damage done to these children.” “This sounds like something out of a horror movie.” The chilling details of 13 siblings who suffered alleged torture in their home and the news of their parents’ arrest have rattled Yahoo Newsroom and the world.
An investigation is underway after 13 siblings — ages 2 to 29 — were allegedly held captive in their Perris, Calif. home by parents David Allen and Louisa Anna Turpin. According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, some were "shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks," malnourished and abused. One of the siblings, a 17-year-old girl so frail that officials say she looked 10 years old, escaped to lead authorities to a home where they were discovered living in foul-smelling conditions. Among the many questions, some perhaps never to be answered: How could this go undetected for so long? One reader writes, “This is why we need nosey neighbors, people paying attention to their neighborhood.”

American families embracing pot as never before, Yahoo News/Marist Poll finds

American families embracing pot as never before, Yahoo News/Marist Poll findsAn exclusive new Yahoo News/Marist Poll shows that as the legal landscape evolves — and as social attitudes evolve along with it — more and more Americans are overcoming old taboos and accepting marijuana into their family lives. Getting high has lost its stigma in the majority of homes where adults use marijuana, according to the survey of 1,122 Americans 18 or older. Sixty percent of parents who use marijuana at least once or twice a year say their children are aware that they use it, and a majority (54 percent) of them have spoken directly to their kids about their use.

Russian hackers targeted just one Yahoo employee in order to breach 500M accounts

Russian hackers targeted just one Yahoo employee in order to breach 500M accounts

More details about the activities that led to one of the biggest data breaches in history are coming to light now that the Department of Justice has indicted four suspects for the 2014 Yahoo hack that affected more than 500 million accounts. An early report revealed how Russian spy operatives and hackers were able to access user accounts without actually stealing passwords. The attackers were able to get their hands on two critical Yahoo resources that they used to trick Yahoo servers into thinking that they were the genuine account owners.

A second report now reveals that in order to actually breach the accounts they were targeting, the hackers first needed to hack just one single Yahoo employee.

FBI special agent Malcom Palmore told ArsTechnica in an interview that the hack likely started with an attack on a “semi-privileged” Yahoo employee rather than a top executive. Social engineering or spear fishing “was the likely avenue of infiltration" for hackers to gain the credentials they needed to infiltrate Yahoo’s server.

The direct result of this attack was access to Yahoo’s internal networks. That’s where one of the hackers conducted reconnaissance work and discovered the key assets the attackers needed to be able to break into specific user accounts. The hackers obtained a large database that helped them create forged cookies, which were enough to access a Yahoo Mail account without the owner’s knowledge and without any login credentials.

Yahoo disclosed the 2014 security breach that affected more than 500 million accounts only a few months ago. Since then, it confirmed that the company suffered two similar data breaches that affected more than one billion users in total.

The FBI agent did not say whether the government or Yahoo discovered the 2014 breach, and he did not reveal more details about the initial attack on the unnamed Yahoo employee. Furthermore, Palmore did not say how long the intrusion lasted.

FBI special agent John Bennett said during a news conference in San Francisco that Yahoo was a great partner during the investigation, and that the company was under no obligation to tell customers about the breach. Yahoo apparently withheld the disclosure for nearly two years, he said.
