What You Need To Know

On 17 occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security matters. Most pressing for this update, beginning Monday AlertsUSA subscribers were informed of reports of a car explosion on the Champs Elysees in Paris. In this incident, a man carrying guns and explosives died when he rammed a car into a police van on the famed Paris avenue in what officials characterize as a deliberate attack on a convoy of police vehicles. Fortunately for the police and those in the vicinity, upon collision, the attackers’ car burst into flames. The man died even though police were able to extricate him from the burning car. Police sources indicate the weapons included handguns and an AK47 assault rifle.

Authorities also speculate that the suspect may have intended to target the area around the Eiffel Tower based on CCTV footage of the individual tracking police vehicles at the site.

 

Brussels Attack

Next up, on Tuesday AlertsUSA subscribers were informed of reports of an explosion at the Central Train Station in Brussels, Belgium. In this incident, a 36-year-old Moroccan national, identified as Oussama Zariouh, entered the station, passed through the ticket hall and approached a group of passengers below the main concourse. There, the suspect grabbed his suitcase, began shouting and his suitcase violently burst into flames, but did not initially explode. As the attacker moved away from the from the burning bag, a smaller explosion did take place, at which point the attacker charged an armed Belgian soldier while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and was immediately shot dead.

Belgian police state that the bomb, which obviously failed to properly detonate, was packed with nails and the powerful explosive TATP, or Triacetone Triperoxide. Had the device operated correctly, the impact would have been catastrophic.

Readers are reminded that in March of last year, three coordinated suicide bombings occurred in Belgium: two at Brussels Airport in Zaventem, and one at Maalbeek metro station in central Brussels. In those incidents, a total of thirty-two civilians and three perpetrators were killed, and more than 300 people injured.

 

More Calls for Attacks

Also this week, AlertsUSA subscribers were informed twice of new calls by the Islamic State for followers to carry out even more attacks on western nations and disbelievers, or kufars, in general. Their encouragement includes stressing the use of vehicles to plow into groups as well as the use of guns and knives in these attacks.

 

Caution Moving Forward

Readers are urged to bear in mind that despite the increasing losses of the Islamic State on battlefields in the Middle East and N. Africa, this does not signal an imminent reduction in the number of terror attacks that will be occurring in western nations. Far from it. It is estimated that tens of thousands of foreign fighters from the west have already traveled to battlefields in the Middle East and N. Africa, received training in bombmaking and other forms of mayhem, and then returned to their home countries waiting for the right motivation, sympathetic reaction, or intentional call to action to launch attacks. Add to this the influx of millions of migrants and refugees (mostly military-aged males) which have already streamed (or have been invited) into the Americas and Europe from Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. While clearly not all of these individuals are prone to violence and fanaticism, even single digit percentages of these groups, so motivated, pose a grave risk to safety and security, particularly if devout followers of Islam.

The Quran states unequivocally the triumph of Islam over all religions (see the free report Deadly Verses below). Jihad, terrorism and violence against unbelievers are absolute foundational concepts of Islam and hallmarks of the life and words of Mohammad.

At present, European nations clearly face the greater threat due to simple geography, growing divisions among its member states, the comparative ease of migrant / refugee entry, and significant challenges faced in assimilation. Nonetheless, the threat of additional attacks in N. North America is still very significant, as evidenced by near weekly arrests and convictions of individuals in some stage of planning and execution of strikes or providing material support to those who would do so.

Continued security awareness and vigilance are urged.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

What You Need To Know

On 16 occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security matters. Most pressing for this report, on Wednesday morning AlertsUSA subscribers were informed of reports of the shooting of House Majority Whip Representative Steve Scaliseduring practice for a charitable sporting event. In this incident, a man opened fire on several Republican members of Congress, their staffers and a lobbyist who were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, scheduled for the following day. The incident took place at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.

Prior to the attack, two other representatives were approached by a man who asked whether it was Republicans or Democrats on the field. One of the Representatives later told reporters that they believe that the man was the same individual police have identified as the assailant, James Thomas Hodgkinson.

During the practice session, Hodgkinson began firing from the vicinity of the third-base dugout. According to the Capitol Police, the shooter was armed with a 7.62 mm semi-automatic rifle and a 9 mm handgun. Representative Scalise, who is the third-ranking Republican in the House, was standing at second base when he was struck in the left hip by a rifle shot. Three Capitol Police who were present as Scalise’s security detail immediately began returning fire, ultimately being joined by local police before successfully bringing the gunman down.

In total, five individuals were injured in the attack, including Representative Scalis, Matt Mike, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, congressional staffer Zack Barth, and two Capital Hill police officers, Crystal Griner and David Baily.

As of the preparation of this report late Friday, Representative Scalise remains in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center having already undergone three surgeries to repair extensive traumatic damage to his hip and internal organs.

While the shooter ultimately died of his injuries, unnamed sources have revealed to the media that the FBI recovered a handwritten list of Republican politician names in his pocket, suggesting this was a premeditated political assassination.

Considering the unending vitriolic anger and rage being expressed by the Left at President Trump’s election victory, to include near daily confrontations and attacks against any expression of conservatism on college campuses, regular protests at conservative events and around the clock anti-Trump hysteria with mainstream news outlets, AlertsUSA cautions readers to expect tensions to increase in the weeks and months ahead, which will likely result in increasing violence. If you are a conservative (typically the most targeted group), now is the time to get armed, acquire your concealed carry permit if you have not already done so, and get extra training on how and when to employ your weapon if the need arises.

It is unlikely the political discourse in this country will become any calmer, particularly with the approach of mid-term elections, and you will need the ability to defend yourself if the vitriol and rage of the Left put you or your family members in danger. It is unlikely this attack will result in a sudden bi-partisan gathering around the proverbial campfire with everyone holding hands and singing Kumbaya. The exact opposite is true, particularly as political losses mount and domestic policies are realigned.

 

ISIS Calls for More Ramadan Attacks

 

AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of the release of a new audio message issued by the Islamic State yet again calling on followers to launch attacks in the U.S. Europe, Russia, AUS and the Philippines during Ramadan.

“To the brethren of faith and belief in Europe, America, Russia, Australia, and others,” he said, “your brothers in your land have done well, so take them as role models and do as they have done.”

 

As AlertsUSA has repeatedly warned, we are now in the midst of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan which began Friday, May 26 and runs through to the evening of Saturday, June 24. Last year, Ramadan was particularly brutal and this year the number of attacks and those killed and injured are climbing fast.

 

Readers are urged to maintain a high level of vigilance and increased security awareness when out an about, and in particular, when present at large public gatherings and other soft targets.

 

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

6/3 – AlertsUSA monitoring parallel attacks happening in London: Vehicular attack on/near London Bridge, gunfire /stabbings @ Borough Market. More info forthcoming.

What You Need To Know

On 19 occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security matters. Most pressing for this issue, last Saturday evening subscribers were informed of reports of a vehicular attack and gunfire on the London Bridge and Borough Market area of central London. In this incident, a rented utility van was used to intentionally plough into pedestrians on the famed bridge. Once the van crashed to a stop, three men jumped out, ran down the street and began attacking random revelers with knives and other edged weapons in pubs and restaurants in the Borough Market area. Within minutes all three were shot dead by police.

Multiple witnesses report that the three assailants were screaming “This is for Allah” during the attack and all three were wearing belts with canisters attached, having the appearance of suicide vests. London Metropolitan police report the bombs were fake, though homemade petrol bombs were found inside of the utility van. In total, seven people were killed and 48 injured in the attack.

London Metropolitan Police report the leader of the trio, Khuram Butt, age 27, of east London, was a Pakistani refugee and well known to law enforcement and intelligence agencies for his radical ideology. His two cohorts were of Moroccan descent, one of whom was arrested in Italy approximately one year ago on his way to Syria, but still managed to gain entry into Britain.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the incident via their Aamaq news agency, stating that “A detachment of fighters from the Islamic State carried out the London attacks.”

Notre-Dam Attack

On Tuesday AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of reports of shots fired near the Notre-Dam cathedral in Paris. In this incident, a 40 year old Algerian doctorate student named Farid Ikken walked up to a police officer, pulled out a hammer and struck the officer in the head while yelling “This is for Syria” in French. He was immediately shot in the chest by a second police officer. French media outlets report that after being shot, the assailant told police he was “a soldier of the caliphate.” A search of his backpack revealed multiple long kitchen knives.

New Threats

On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of a range of new threats issued by the Islamic State via various social media outlets. Targets of these threats include Australia, the UK, and France (see related graphics here and here). Of particular note, on Wednesday, the Islamic State broadcast a warning to all Muslims in America, Russia, France, Britain, Canada, Belgium, Italy, Australia and elsewhere outside of the Caliphate to stay clear of Crusader gathering places as they are targeted for attacks.

Also this week, new Islamic State propaganda widely circulating through social media outlets clearly encourages the targeting of police.

As AlertsUSA / Threat Journal warned last week, 2016’s month of daytime fasting and prayer was the bloodiest in recent history. Attacks included a massive suicide bombing in Baghdad that killed nearly 300 people, an Istanbul airport attack that killed 45, and a shooting massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando that killed 49.

Readers are again urged to maintain a high level of vigilance and increased security awareness when out an about, and in particular, when present at large public gatherings and other soft targets.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

TSA MAY EXTEND BAN ON LAPTOPS TO DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

‘The Department of Homeland Security is currently considering the possible expansion of that laptop ban,’ says TSA spox.

The rash of terror attacks in Great Britain come as the summer travel season is beginning. That means security measures, especially at airports, will see increased work loads, and passengers longer waits.

Finding and removing the everyday items that terrorists have turned into threats is a huge challenge, WJZ’s Alex DeMetrick reports.

And between now and Labor Day, a lot of Americans will spend time coming and going by air.

Since 9/11, passenger planes have been a high priority target for terrorists, with bombs bringing down a Russian airliner in Egypt, and blowing a hole in a Somali jet last year.

Thousands Drop off Food Stamp Rolls in Georgia After State Implements Work Requirements

Thousands of people have dropped off the food stamp rolls in Georgia as a result of the state implementing work requirements for food stamp recipients.

More than half of the 11,779 people enrolled for food stamps in 21 counties, an estimated 7,251 people, have dropped out of the food stamp program—a drop of 62 percent, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Georgia first rolled out its work requirements for the food stamp program in three counties in January 2016. Since then, the state has expanded work requirements in an additional 21 counties, giving people in those 21 counties until April 1, 2017 to find a job or lose food stamp benefits.

Those who receive benefits must work at least 20 hours a week, be enrolled in state-approved job training, or volunteer for a state-approved non-profit or charity.

State officials say the plan is to extend the work requirements to all 159 counties in Georgia by 2019 and implement work requirements in 60 more counties, starting in 2018.

“The greater good is people being employed, being productive and contributing to the state,” said Bobby Cagle, director of Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services.

Views on the work mandate are mixed in the state, with some seeing the requirement as a way to get more people into the workforce and less dependent on government handouts, while others say it is an unfair measure that targets the disabled who cannot hold down a job due to their impairments.

Brandon Hanick, who represents the progressive advocacy group Better Georgia, says people with mental health problems, limited education, and the physically disabled would have trouble trying to provide proof of their inability to meet the work requirements.

“It’s cruel,” Hanick said. “We’re talking about one of the most basic needs — the need for food.”

State Rep. Greg Morris (R-Vidalia), on the other hand, says that the decrease in food stamp recipients means that the work requirements are helping people become less dependent on government handouts.

“This is about protecting taxpayer dollars from abuse, and taking people off the cycle of dependency,” Morris said. The big drop in numbers, he added, “shows how tax dollars are abused when it comes to entitlements.”

Over the past year, the number of able-bodied food stamp recipients without children in Georgia decreased from 111,000 to 89,500, a 19 percent decrease, the AJC reported.

According to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics for FY 2017, 42,906,253 Americans are enrolled in the food stamp program—a 2.9 percent decrease from FY 2016, when 44,219,363 Americans received food stamps.

Islamic State claims responsibility for Manila Attack - ALLOW IMAGES

Islamic State Claims Responsibility for Manila Attack

 

June 3, 2017

 

On June 1st, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

6/1 – US Embassy Manila urges increased vigilance and security awareness following Islamist attack on Resorts World Manila near the International Airport.

What You Need To Know

On seven occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security matters. Most pressing for this report, on Thursday subscribers were informed of a warning issued by the US Embassy in Manila urging increased vigilance and security awareness following an attack on Resorts World casino near the International Airport.

While it proved impossible to acquire accurate information from official sources in the Philippines during the incident, the death toll now stands at 37, with another 70 wounded. Initial reports indicated most of the dead were due to trampling during the panic, then gunshot wounds, then smoke inhalation. In a most bizarre explanation, local police and government officials insist a gunman carrying an assault rifle broke into Resorts World Manila from a parking lot entrance, fired at a TV screen, doused a gaming table with gasoline and set it on fire. He then proceeded to steal the equivalent of $2.3 million dollars in casino chips, break into the adjoining Maxims Hotel, and then burned himself alive.

While the Philippine National Police and government officials continue to attempt to downplay the terrorism angle, it is interesting to note that the Islamic State has formally claimed responsibility for the attack through their official news agency.

Readers are reminded that the Philippine government has been waging a violent battle with radical Muslims in the southern portion of the country for decades. Most recently, the Islamic State has threatened to carry to battle to the capital of Manila, with the Philippine president threatening to impose martial law countrywide.

Readers are also reminded that on April 6th, AlertsUSA warned of the release of an issue of the Islamic State’s monthly internet publication known as Rumiyah, within which followers are encouraged to steal money from unbelievers and their businesses.

“Just as the blood of the kafir is halal to shed, so too is the kafir’s wealth halal to take.

Whether the financial damage is on an individual kafir or the cause of perpetual loss to a business, the Muslim in Dar al-Kufr (the Land of Disbelief) has the opportunity to follow this blessed sunnah, striking terror by stalking the kuffar and causing them economic harm. There should be no misunderstanding about the excellence of this deed, as taking this wealth is in accordance with the command of Allah.”

Beware of Ramadan

AlertsUSA reminds subscribers that we are now in the midst of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which began Friday, May 26 and runs through to the evening of Saturday, June 24. To make this year’s special month, the Islamic State is urging followers to wage all out war on the West.

For a little historical context:

With early 7th century Muslims, acts of war during Ramadan were strictly forbidden. That all changed with Muhammad, who supposedly received revelations from above indicating that it was those carrying out attacks during Ramadan that were the real victims, because the non-Muslims, by their sheer presence and sinful lifestyles, were denying true followers the ability to follow the straight path of Sharia.

Fast forwarding to modern times, readers should bear in mind that 2016’s month of daytime fasting and prayer was the bloodiest in recent history. Attacks included a massive suicide bombing in Baghdad that killed nearly 300 people, an Istanbul airport attack that killed 45, and a shooting massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando that killed 49.

Readers are urged to maintain a high level of vigilance and increased security awareness when out an about, and in particular, when present at large public gatherings and other soft targets.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

5/25 (l) – Islamic State releases new call for attacks on the infidels in West and Gulf regions during the holy month of Ramadan (5/26 – 6/24). Add’l alerts as warranted.

What You Need To Know

On 15 occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security threats. Most pressing for this report, beginning Monday, AlertsUSA subscribers were some of the first in the nation to learn of reports of explosions at Manchester Arena in Britain. In this incident, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device he carried in a backpack filled with nails and other shrapnel in the foyer of the venue just as a sold-out pop singer’s concert was concluding and the audience was exiting. 22 people were killed and 64 seriously injured in the attack. This death toll expected to climb as more than a dozen are still hospitalized in grave condition.

Crime scene forensics have identified the explosive used in the attack as T.A.T.P., or triacetone triperoxide, which takes the form of a white crystalline powder and has a detonation velocity in excess of fifteen thousand feet per second. Highly unstable, the substance can explode if subjected to heat, friction, or shock, earning it the nickname “Mother of Satan. (Watch this short video demo) As a non-nitrogenous explosive, TATP is difficult to detect and can be prepared from common chemicals. Given these key features, the Islamic State, al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations have used TATP in terror attacks around the globe for years. In addition, both the Islamic State and al Qaeda have openly published the recipe, and designs for bombs based on the substance.

According to Congressman Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, this is the same explosive used in both the March 2016 attack in Brussels and the November 2015 attacks in Paris.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Manchester incident, saying that a “soldier of the caliphate” carried out the attack at a gathering of “crusaders.”

British security services have raised the nation’s terror threat level to CRITICAL, indicating a belief that additional attacks are imminent. Thousands of heavily-armed British soldiers have been deployed across the country to supplement regular law enforcement. For the first time in history, British Special Operations Forces are actively carrying out raids alongside regular police in an effort to rapidly roll up the Manchester bomber’s support network.

It is important to note that British authorities do not believe that the bomber was the actual bomb maker and that more explosive devices may be in play.

Few mainstream media outlets are reporting an increase in security at British nuclear power facilities, which may be the result of the fact that the Manchester bomber’s mother is a nuclear scientist who graduated at the top of her class at Tripoli University.

The State Department is reminding American citizens of the Europe-wide travel alert issued May 1st and of the absolute need to maintain a high level vigilance and increase security awareness when traveling anywhere in Europe this summer.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday said the terror threat is worse than most realize, saying some people would “never leave the house” if they knew the truth.

The Department of Homeland Security is warning Americans in the U.S. to remain vigilant and to maintain increased security awareness in and around public venues and events over the Memorial Day weekend.

In related news, federal, state and local authorities are also keeping a close eye on Las Vegas following last week’s release of a 44-minute video by the Islamic State showing footage of the strip, along with images from other cities, including New York and Washington, D.C..

Additionally, late this week, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of a new call by the Islamic State for followers to wage all out war on the infidels in West and Gulf regions during the holy month of Ramadan, which began Friday at sundown and runs through the 24th of June.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

Attempted Hijacking
Threats to Aviation Sector Mounting

 

On May 19, AlertsUSA issued the following
Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

5/19 – Attempted hijacking of American Airlines Flight 31, LAX to Honolulu. One indiv subdued after attempting to breach cockpit, aircraft has safely landed.

What You Need To Know

On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of security threats. Most pressing for this report, subscribers were informed on Friday of an attempted hijacking of American Airlines Flight 31 from Los Angeles International Airport to Honolulu.The suspect, 25-year-old Anil Uskanil, is a Turkish national who attempted to force entry into the cockpit while carrying a laptop computer. He was subdued by a mix of passengers and crew members. In response to the incident, U.S. Pacific Command scrambled two F-22 Raptors attached to the Hawaii Air National Guard to intercept and escort the flight to it’s intended destination of Honolulu International Airport (Note that these flights are not sent to protect the aircraft, but to protect those on the ground should the aircraft depart from it’s normal flight route…).

A strange twist to this story are reports that prior to the flight, the suspect had been arrested and cited for breaching a secure area at Los Angeles International Airport. Despite this arrest, the suspect was still allowed to board the American Airlines flight.

Readers are reminded that on multiple occasions over the last few years, AlertsUSA has been reporting on increasing threats to the aviation sector which have led U.S. authorities to implement the new ban on electronic devices in the cabins of U.S. bound flights from 10 airports across the Middle East, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Cairo and Istanbul, Turkey.

Just last week AlertsUSA informed subscribers these restrictions were likely to be expanded to include ALL U.S. bound flights from ALL international points of departure. And during the preparation of this report, news stories surfaced that Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly had hinted to lawmakers on Capital Hill that the seriousness of the threat may lead to the ban on electronic devices in the cabin of flights departing the United States for destinations abroad. With that mention, the only angle yet to have a trial balloon sent up is a similar ban on domestic flights.

It should be apparent that the incident at LAX, and the flight to Honolulu, will likely hasten this process.

On May 18, AlertsUSA issued the following
Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

5/18 – AlertsUSA monitoring possible vehicular attack, NY Times Square. At least 10 injured. Add’l alerts as warranted.

What You Need To Know

On Thursday AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of a possible vehicular attack in Times Square. In this incident, Bronx resident Richard Rojas, 26, intentionally swerved his passenger vehicle over a curb and onto the sidewalk at W. 42nd and 7th Ave. He then mowed down pedestrians for a distance of three blocks before striking security bollards.

At the time of this report’s preparation, at least one person had died and more than 20 others were severely injured in the attack. Although this incident is currently believed to be unrelated to terrorism, the Islamic State celebrated the tragedy and called on lone wolves to carry out similar attacks in New York.

AlertsUSA cautions readers that turmoil in Washington and the intentional jamming up of the system has many people charged with the defense of the nation distracted, which directly translates into increased vulnerability. This domestic turmoil also emboldens our enemies. Now is the time to maintain a mindset of increased situational and security awareness when out and about.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

100+ Nations Impacted by Ransomware Attack


DNI Warns of Expanding Terror Threat

 

May 13, 2017

 

Between May 11-12, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

5/12 – Dept. of Homeland Security statement regarding ongoing global ransomware attack has been sent to AlertsUSA subscribers via email.

5/12 – Security services rpt ransomware attack has spread to ~70 countries, incl US. Best defense: Do not open unknown links or email atts.., update AV software.

5/12 – Expanding malware / ransom-ware attack underway on gov & private entities in UK & Spain. Large portions of UK Nat’l Health Service impacted. Monitoring…

5/11 – Dir. of Nat’l Intelligence warns Islamic State “will continue to be an active terrorist threat to the U.S…. proven ability to direct and inspire attacks.”

What You Need To Know

On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of security threats. Most pressing for this report, on Friday, subscribers were notified of a rapidly expanding ransomware attack initially impacting computers the United Kingdom and Spain. The malicious software locks up the machine and flashes a message demanding payment in exchange for an unlock code to release the user’s data. In this case, ransom demands are reported to begin at $300 and increase after two hours to $400, $500 and then $600. The only method of payment is via the digital currency known as Bitcoin. The malware behind the onslaught appears to exploit a known vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. Although this vulnerability has been patched, an untold number of government, business and personal computer users do not bother to keep their operating system and antivirus software up to date.

At the time of this report’s preparation late Friday, the attack was reported to have infected tens of thousands of computers across more than 100 countries, though the spread is reported to have been temporarily halted after computer security experts effectively blocked a URL referenced in the program code.

It is extremely important for readers to understand that those who originally released this ransomware can very easily change this line of code, then begin the onslaught anew.

According to the a statement issued by the Dept. of Homeland Security, Microsoft released a patch in March that addresses this specific vulnerability, and installing this patch will help secure your systems from the threat.

The Department of Homeland Security and AlertsUSA both strongly encourage those using Windows-based computers at you home or place of employment to update your systems to include the latest security patches and virus definitions for your antiviral software. Secondly, do not click on or download unfamiliar links or files in emails. If your not expecting it or it comes from any unknown source, delete it. Finally, backing up your core file collection is crucial.

DNI Worldwide Threat Assessment

On Thursday of this week Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats delivered the annual Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. intelligence community to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI). Despite this being an unclassified briefing (with closed sessions revealing significantly more unsettling detail), the report still paints a sobering outlook of the dangers facing the U.S.:

Terrorism

  • US-based homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) will remain the most frequent and unpredictable Sunni violent extremist threat to the US homeland. They will be spurred on by terrorist groups’ public calls to carry out attacks in the West. The threat of HVE attacks will persist, and some attacks will probably occur with little or no warning. In 2016, 16 HVEs were arrested, and three died in attacks against civilian soft targets. Those detained were arrested for a variety of reasons, including attempting travel overseas for jihad and plotting attacks in the United States. In addition to the HVE threat, a small number of foreign based Sunni violent extremist groups will also pose a threat to the US homeland and continue publishing multilingual propaganda that calls for attacks against US and Western interests in the US homeland and abroad.
  • The Islamic State of Iraq and ash-Sham (ISIS) continues to pose an active terrorist threat to the United States and its allies because of its ideological appeal, media presence, control of territory in Iraq and Syria, its branches and networks in other countries, and its proven ability to direct and inspire attacks against a wide range of targets around the world.
  • Outside Iraq and Syria, ISIS is seeking to foster interconnectedness among its global branches and networks, align their efforts to ISIS’s strategy, and withstand counter-ISIS efforts. We assess that ISIS maintains the intent and capability to direct, enable, assist, and inspire transnational attacks. The number of foreign fighters traveling to join ISIS in Iraq and Syria will probably continue to decline as potential recruits face increasing difficulties attempting to travel there. The number of ISIS foreign fighters leaving Iraq and Syria might increase. Increasing departures would very likely prompt additional would-be fighters to look for new battlefields or return to their home countries to conduct or support external operations.

North Korea

  • North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile programs will continue to pose a serious threat to US interests and to the security environment in East Asia in 2017. North Korea’s export of ballistic missiles and associated materials to several countries, including Iran and Syria, and its assistance to Syria’s construction of a nuclear reactor, destroyed in 2007, illustrate its willingness to proliferate dangerous technologies.
  • North Korea has also expanded the size and sophistication of its ballistic missile forces—from close range ballistic missiles (CRBMs) to ICBMs—and continues to conduct test launches. In 2016, North Korea conducted an unprecedented number of ballistic missile tests. Pyongyang is committed to developing a long-range, nuclear-armed missile that is capable of posing a direct threat to the United States; it has publicly displayed its road-mobile ICBMs on multiple occasions. We assess that North Korea has taken steps toward fielding an ICBM but has not flight-tested it.

Laptop / Tablet Ban Looming

In March of this year AlertsUSA reported on new restrictions surrounding the different types of electronic devices allowed in the cabins of non-stop US-bound flights from eight Muslim-majority countries.

Last week we reported that sources within DHS/TSA informed AlertsUSA the ban would likely be expanded to some U.S.-bound flights from Europe in the coming months.

This week, the story appeared in the broader media indicating DHS may be announcing an expansion of the ban to include laptops/tablets in the cabins of ALL flights from Europe to the United States. It is also reported federal officials have already met with major U.S. airlines and at least one trade group to discuss the ban.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
