A hacker going by the name L&M says he has hacked into more than thousands of accounts belonging to users of GPS tracking apps, giving him the ability to monitor tens of thousands of vehicles – and even turn off the engines for some of them, while they’re in motion, according to Motherboard

He has admitted to hacking into more than 7,000 iTrack accounts and more than 20,000 ProTrack accounts, two apps that companies use to monitor and manage fleets of vehicles through GPS tracking devices. He has tracked vehicles worldwide, even in countries like South Africa, Morocco, India, and the Philippines. The software on some cars can be used to turn off the engines of vehicles moving at 12 miles per hour or less.

L&M reverse engineered the ProTrack and iTrack Android apps to find out that all customers are given a default password of 123456 when they sign up. After finding “millions of usernames” the hacker then blasted them all with the default password. He wound up getting access to thousands of accounts as a result. 

According to a sample of user data L&M shared, he has scraped information from ProTrack and iTrack customers, including: name and model of the GPS tracking devices they use, the devices’ unique ID numbers, usernames, real names, phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses. Four users included in the sample L&M shared confirmed the breach. 

The hacker said: “My target was the company, not the customers. Customers are at risk because of the company. They need to make money, and don’t want to secure their customers.”

He continued: “I can absolutely make a big traffic problem all over the world. I have fully [sic] control hundred of thousands of vehicles, and by one touch, I can stop these vehicles engines.”

The apps have a feature to “stop engine,” according to a screenshot provided by the hacker – although he says he never has killed a car’s engine because it would “be too dangerous”. A representative for the makers of one of the hardware GPS tracking devices used by some of the users of ProTrack GPS and iTrack, confirmed that customers can turn off the engines remotely if the vehicles are going under 12 miles per hour.

Glyphosate Found in 19 of 20 Beers and Wines Tested – Global Research

glyphosate-found-in-19-of-20-beers-and-wines-tested-8211-global-research

Glyphosate—the active ingredient in Monsanto‘s Roundup weedkiller that some studies have linked to cancer—is also a secret ingredient in nearly 20 popular beers and wines.

That’s the finding of a new study from the education group U.S. PIRG, which found glyphosate in 19 of 20 wine and beer brands tested, including organic labels and brews.

BREAKING: Glyphosate, a key ingredient in #Roundup, has been found in wine and beer…even in organic brands. #BanRoundup https://t.co/PApgrpNFuV

— U.S. PIRG (@uspirg) February 25, 2019

The release of the study coincides with the beginning of the first federal trial against Monsanto and its new parent company Bayer over whether Roundup use caused a plaintiff’s cancer, USA Today reported Monday.

“With a federal court looking at the connection between Roundup and cancer today, we believe this is the perfect time to shine a spotlight on glyphosate,” study author and U.S. PIRG Toxic’s Director Kara Cook-Schultz told USA Today. “This chemical could prove a true risk to so many Americans’ health, and they should know that it is everywhere – including in many of their favorite drinks.”

The drink with the highest glyphosate concentration was Sutter Home Merlot, at 51.4 parts per billion (ppb). Popular beer brands like Coors Light, Miller Lite and Budweiser all had concentrations above 25 ppb. The full results of the study, from highest to lowest glyphosate concentration in ppb, are listed below.

Wines

  1. Sutter Home Merlot: 51.4 ppb
  2. Beringer Founders Estates Moscato: 42.6 ppb
  3. Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon: 36.3 ppb
  4. Inkarri Malbec, Certified Organic: 5.3 ppb
  5. Frey Organic Natural White: 4.8 ppb

Beers

  1. Tsingtao Beer: 49.7 ppb
  2. Coors Light: 31.1 ppb
  3. Miller Lite: 29.8 ppb
  4. Budweiser: 27.0 ppb
  5. Corona Extra: 25.1 ppb
  6. Heineken: 20.9 ppb
  7. Guinness Draught: 20.3 ppb
  8. Stella Artois: 18.7 ppb
  9. Ace Perry Hard Cider: 14.5 ppb
  10. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale: 11.8 ppb
  11. New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale: 11.2 ppb
  12. Sam Adams New England IPA: 11.0 ppb
  13. Stella Artois Cidre: 9.1 ppb
  14. Samuel Smith’s Organic Lager: 5.7 ppb

The only beverage tested that contained no glyphosate was Peak Beer Organic IPA.

Asbestos Found in Baby Powder. You’ll Never Guess How J&J Respond!… #PropagandaWatch : The Corbett Report

    I am pleasantly amazed that Reuters actually ran the article.

    My hat off to the journalist.

    I have long detested Johnsons and Johnsons baby powder because of its synthetic chemical perfumes and dust like nature. I think it is insane to sprinkle it on a baby. If you can smell it, it is going in your lungs (i.e. the very toxic synthetic chemical fragrances along with mineral talc particulates). Lung inhalation is a direct line to the blood stream, (as any pot smoker knows). Mineral particulates (whether talc or other types of minerals) in the lungs can cause all kinds of issues.

    Even J&J’s baby powder gives a warning “Keep powder away from baby’s face to avoid inhalation, which can cause breathing problems.”

    To me, it has always seemed like common sense NOT to sprinkle this dusty stuff on infants. My god! The baby is bound to breathe it. It is easily airborne.

    I just can’t get over how corporations can dupe the common sense out of people.

    I mean…look…Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Oil (mineral oil and fragrance). Mineral oil is typically a distillate of petroleum. Might as well just get some motor oil and put it on an infant.

    Corn Starch has long been used in the south by both guys and gals to help keep the private parts and feet dry, especially in the summer. It actually feels pretty good.

    “It’s a conspiracy theory”

    I think the media and corporations are starting to lose the impact of their denigration with the use of the supposed ‘insult’: “It’s a conspiracy theory”. Pretty soon, like on this Corbett Episode, the public will laugh at them for making such a silly statement.
