In the news today, it happened last month… but the effects of the Citi group hack can still be felt by the business and its customers.  Monday, the banking group announced that nearly 3 million dollars had been funneled by hackers in the cyber crime that compromised customers’ data.


Also, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ran a test this year to see how hard it was for hackers to corrupt workers and gain access to computer systems. It ended up being not too hard at all.  Staff secretly dropped computer discs and USB thumb drives in the parking lots of government buildings and private contractors. 


And the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive task force is offering a reward for information leading to the capture of fugitive Mustaffa Shabazz.  He is wanted by the U.S. marshals, and the U.S. postal inspectors on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud/credit card fraud and identity theft. 


And always, we will have the job of the day.  Make sure you tune in.
