2 million Facebook, Gmail and Twitter accounts and passwords hacked and stolen (Including mine)

Some of you are well aware of the struggle I found myself in since yesterday when I lost my Twitter account (@franksdonald) and this my blog to hackers. Graciously I have been able to retrieve the Blogger but I can't say the same about the twitter.

Unfortunately, I am among the 2 million people who's accounts got hacked and this is really turning into an ugly trend.

Hackers have stolen usernames and passwords for nearly two million accounts at Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo and others, according to a report released this week.

The massive data breach was a result of keylogging software maliciously installed on an untold number of computers around the world, researchers at cybersecurity firm Trustwave said. The virus was capturing log-in credentials for key websites over the past month and sending those usernames and passwords to a server controlled by the hackers. 

On Nov. 24, Trustwave researchers tracked that server, located in the Netherlands. They discovered compromised credentials for more than 93,000 websites, including: 
  • 318,000 Facebook (FB, Fortune 500) accounts
  • 70,000 Gmail, Google+ and YouTube accounts
  • 60,000 Yahoo (YHOO, Fortune 500) accounts
  • 22,000 Twitter (TWTR) accounts
  • 9,000 Odnoklassniki accounts (a Russian social network)
  • 8,000 ADP (ADP, Fortune 500) accounts (ADP says it counted 2,400)
  • 8,000 LinkedIn (LNKD)accounts
Trustwave notified these companies of the breach. They posted their findings publicly on Tuesday. 

"We don't have evidence they logged into these accounts, but they probably did," said John Miller, a security research manager at Trustwave. 

Here's hoping I can get my twitter back before the close of today.

VIDEO: Nelson Mandela's Life Story (All the Details and History)

Freedom fighter, prisoner, moral compass and South Africa's symbol of the struggle against racial oppression.
 
That was Nelson Mandela, who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead his country out of decades of apartheid.

He died Thursday night at age 95.

His message of reconciliation, not vengeance, inspired the world after he negotiated a peaceful end to segregation and urged forgiveness for the white government that imprisoned him.

"As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison," Mandela said after he was freed in 1990.
Mandela, a former president, battled health issues in recent years, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations.

Despite rare public appearances, he held a special place in the consciousness of the nation and the world.

"Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father," South African President Jacob Zuma said. "What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."

His U.S. counterpart, Barack Obama, echoed the same sentiment.

"We've lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this Earth," Obama said. "He no longer belongs to us -- he belongs to the ages."

Train Crashes In New York Leaving 4 Dead and 67 Injured


A train hurtled off the tracks in a New York suburb yesterday killing at least four people, injuring 67 and coming perilously close to plunging into a freezing river.

Chris Okotie Explodes: Catholics Members Will Go To Hell, Tb Joshua Is Fake And The Pope Is An Anti-Christ

All Catholics in the world will go to hell because they worship Satan and are led by an Anti-Christ Pope who is a friend to the devil, Nigeria’s controversial preacher and former presidential candidate, Chris Okotie, told his congregation on Sunday, leaving members bewildered.

Fifty-five year old Okotie, while preaching in his Household of God Church in Ikeja area of Lagos, western Nigeria, said the Catholic church is “a counterfeit church set up by Satan” and that Catholics “bow to idols and crucify Jesus every Sunday when they eat bread claiming they are eating Jesus’ body.”

“They are not Christians and have never been,” Okotie told a stunned congregation.
 
“They don’t know Jesus. They believe that when they eat bread on Sundays, they are eating the body of Jesus. It’s ritual,” Okotie said. More after the jump.............

Khloe Kardashian Breaks Down in Tears Over Lamar Odom In KUWTK


It all happened when the reality stars got together for the Kardashian holiday special that aired on Dec. 1st and Kanye West and Lamar Odom were both absent. Kim Kardashian said Kanye was busy touring but Khloe didn’t say too much. She rolled her eyes, shrugged, and looked down at the floor, it’s clear things are not going well. 
 
After playing some Christmas videos from Kim, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner‘s childhood, the family decides to play white elephant. It’s a game where you pick a number, then you grab a gift from the center and you can steal someone’s gift.

Then Khloe gets really upset and everyone starts asking her what’s wrong! She says that the number she happened to pick was seven, Lamar’s NBA number. She gets teary eyed and then kisses the card.

In the preview for the upcoming episodes, Khloe breaks down crying and says she doesn’t know what to do.

Here's hoping that Khloe and Lamar can mend their lives as they were a very cute couple together.

President Jonathan Tries To Justify Wednesday’s Planned Sack Of Thousands Of Striking University Teachers


The face off between the FG and ASUU is really getting out of hand and we are the victims of their politics irrespective of the end-game. I received a BC a few days back from a credible source in my school and the content of the BC clearly stated that we are to resume today 2nd December 2013 which means it was the beginning of a new academic year since we weren't really affected by the strike action as we had finished our 2nd semenster exams just in the brink of time before the strike.

President Goodluck Jonathan has today attempted to justify his government’s plan to sack lecturers in 61 universities, citing the refusal of the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off the five-month old action even after 42 of its chapters had opted out.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doting Okupe, warned in Abuja at a press briefing that if the lecturers are now sacked, nobody should blame the government or accuse it of being dictatorial.

"The ASUU leadership refused to accede to the wishes of 42 of its 61 chapters nationwide, who voted in favour of the agreement with the President and the calling off of the strike; but in a surprise volte face presented government again with a new set of demands and considerations outside the terms agreed at the presidential intervention," Okupe said.

The reality star and mom to Mason, 3, and Penelope, 13 months, is once and for all putting an end to speculation about her son's genetic line, telling Us Weekly in a statement she can prove that her boyfriend of seven years, Scott Disick, is definitely Mason's dad.

KERRY WASHINGTON's life-threatening health problem

Pregnant “Scandal” star KERRY WASHINGTON is harboring a life-threatening health problem – and she’s terrified it could en­danger her unborn baby, a source says.

The 36-year-old beauty, who plays Capitol Hill scandal “fixer” Olive Pope on the hit ABC political thriller, lives in constant fear of her severe food allergies.

In a desperate attempt to avoid al­lergy attacks, she maintains a highly restrictive diet. She also never leaves home without an EpiPen, which is a syringe of epineph­rine used to reverse sudden, possibly fatal, allergic reac­tions.

Her condition has cast a pall over what should be a joyous time as the star and her new husband, pro football player Nnamdi Asomugha, look forward to their first child.

“Kerry is petrified she’ll die after having a severe allergic reaction to a particular food,” disclosed an insider. “It’s a big, dark cloud hanging over her life. She knows that allergy symptoms can increase during pregnancy, so she’s being hypervigilant. She won’t eat at restaurants now and sticks to a bland diet.”

Kim Kardashian and Mom Kris Popularity falls by a devastating 50 Percent and 66 Percent Respectively In Influential Poll

It's true that the Kardashian empire is crumbling slowly but surely and now they’ve gone from heroes to near zeroes.

In less than two years, Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner‘s “likability” have both plummeted more than 50 percent, according to the Q Scores, a closely watched measure of recognition and popularity that marketers use to evaluate celebrities’ appeal.

Mother-of-one Kim’s attraction to the general public has plunged from a 9 score in 2011 — right after she married ex-husband Kris Humphries — to a disappointing 4 in September, the latest poll results of women over the age of 18 — obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com — reveal.

Momager Kris, who last week announced her split from husband Bruce Jenner after 22 years, was a 12 in 2011.

Today, she is a lowly 4, despite having her own talk show on FOX!

The shocking Q Score — also used by companies and advertisers to help make major endorsement decisions — comes on the heels of a series of scandals to plague reality television’s first family, most notably Kim’s 72-day marriage

The Kardashian empire is slowly but surely crumbling and the last thing the Kardashians need right now is bad press.

Madonna Raped At Knifepoint in New York

In Harper’s BAZAAR magazine, the icon herself penned an essay revealing her struggles of making it in the harsh music business and the criticism that is still surrounding the artist.

In the magazine which will be available on newsstands on Oct. 22, Madonna shocked the world as she reveals a picture of her first time in the’big city’ alone.

“This wasn’t anything I prepared for in Rochester, Michigan. Trying to be a professional dancer, paying my rent by posing nude for art classes, staring at people staring at me naked. Daring them to think of me as anything but a form they were trying to capture with their pencils and charcoal. I was defiant. Hell-bent on surviving. On making it. But it was hard and it was lonely, and I had to dare myself every day to keep going,” she writes of her time in NYC.

She also explains in her article just how much of herself she had to “give up.” “New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and
