The world's largest cruise operator Carnival has revealed that it suffered a ransomware attack and security breach that could affect customer and employee data. The company disclosed the information in a US Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) 8-K filing (via ZDNet), saying that it occurred on last weekend on August 15th. "We expect that the security event included unauthorized access to personal data of guests and employees, which may result in potential claims," the form states. Carnival added that attackers "accessed and encrypted a portion of one brand's information technology systems," without providing further details like the type of ransomware. The company suffered a separate breach last year which also potentially involved stolen customer data. The massive cruise company owns a fleet of 600 ships with 150,000 employees and brands including Princess Cruises, Holland America, Costa Cruises and others.
If there's one thing Donald Trump really doesn't like, it's being called out. British journalist Selina Scott found that out the hard way when she challenged his false claim that he wholly owned the Empire State Building. In 1995, Scott interviewed Trump for a British television documentary. Scott and her producer, Ted Brocklebank, used the song "It Ain't Necessarily So" in the background of the film to highlight how Trump's claims "'didn't stand up,'" Brocklebank told journalist Michael D'Antonio in his book The Truth About Trump. One of those claims occurred during a helicopter ride over Manhattan.
