Sites subjected to a DMCA takedown notice should consider removing the content in question or contesting the claim. But consider this scenario. To reduce piracy, Google accepts DMCA takedown notices for URLs that don't yet exist in its indexes. So what happens if you receive a 'future piracy' notice that's clearly bogus? A DMCA counter notice won't work; they're talking about things you haven't even done yet.

Pizza Hut's Australian outpost has suffered a data breach.

The baked goods purveyor has delivered bitter news to around 190,000 customers: that their name, delivery address, email address, and phone numbers have been accessed by unautorised entities.

Even more seriously, pizza order histories have also leaked.

Yes, dear reader – that means the bad guys have seen a database of people who like pineapple on their pizzas.

We can only hope that whoever lifted the data doesn't devise some horrible extortion scheme, threatening to reveal that shameful secret to the victims' loved ones and employers.

AI-generated and self-published books sold on Amazon have not earned a reputation for quality.

One such volume, which Amazon rated as a bestseller, claimed to detail the full story behind the wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui before the blazes were doused and while hundreds of residents were missing. The book was “written” by an author who has left no trace on the digital world other than his books for sale on Amazon, the texts of which include grammatical oddities and other hallmarks of being generated by AI.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has proposed rules for commercial space launch companies to address orbital debris, a growing threat to spacecraft and satellites.

Detailed this week in a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) [PDF], the FAA wants commercial space operators to take responsibility for disposing of the upper stages of their launch vehicles, and offers them five options to implement this.

The options include conducting a controlled re-entry; an uncontrolled atmospheric disposal; moving the upper stage to a storage or graveyard orbit; retrieving the upper stage within five years; or pushing it into an Earth-escape orbit.

However, the FAA proposes that operators should be allowed up to 25 years in which the upper stage is removed from orbit using the uncontrolled or natural decay method.

The reason a US Marine Corps pilot ejected from his F-35B stealth fighter jet last weekend remains unknown, but a government agency report on the dismal state of the F-35 fleet's maintenance provides a few clues.

According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), which coincidentally released its report the same week the search for the now-recovered crashed F-35 was happening, found that the DoD's fleet of the fighter craft "face costly maintenance issues" that have led to an average of just 55 percent of them being ready for action at any given time.

For reference, the DoD's goals for the F-35A is a mission capable rate of 90 percent, while it wants the B and C variants of the F-35, with their more complicated short takeoff and landing and carrier launch configurations, to have an 85 percent rate.

Security researchers with the Citizen Lab and Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) revealed today that three zero-days patched by Apple on Thursday were abused as part of an exploit chain to install Cytrox's Predator spyware.

Between May and September 2023, the attackers exploited the bugs (CVE-2023-41991, CVE-2023-41992, and CVE-2023-41993) in attacks using decoy SMS and WhatsApp messages to target former Egyptian MP Ahmed Eltantawy after announcing plans to join the Egyptian presidential election in 2024.

"In August and September 2023, Eltantawy's Vodafone Egypt mobile connection was persistently selected for targeting via network injection," Citizen Lab explained.

"When Eltantawy visited certain websites not using HTTPS, a device installed at the border of Vodafone Egypt's network automatically redirected him to a malicious website to infect his phone with Cytrox's Predator spyware."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claims the public anti-grooming protests show “hate” towards people who are gay or transgender.

“Let me make one thing very clear: Transphobia, homophobia, and biphobia have no place in this country,” Trudeau wrote Wednesday on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“We strongly condemn this hate and its manifestations, and we stand united in support of 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians across the country — you are valid and you are valued,” the Canadian prime minister added.
