Israeli soldiers duped by Hamas 'fake women' phone ruse

Dozens of Israeli soldiers have had their smartphones hacked by the Hamas militant group posing as women seeking attention, Israel's military says.
A spokesman said the soldiers were sent fake photos of young females and lured into downloading an app without knowing it could access their handsets.
He said there was no "significant breach of information" before the scam was foiled.
Hamas, which controls Gaza, and Israel view each other as mortal enemies.
It is the third such attempt in recent years by Hamas to infiltrate Israeli soldiers' phones, but was the most sophisticated yet, according to Lt Col Jonathan Conricus.
"We see that they're of course learning and upping their game," he said.
Col Conricus said the hackers had masqueraded as young women with imperfect Hebrew, claiming to be immigrants or to have visual or hearing impairments, in order to appear convincing.
After striking up friendships, the "women" would send links which they said would enable them to exchange photos, but which in reality caused the soldiers to download malware - programmes that can attack smartphones or computer devices.
Once the link was opened, the programme would install a virus which would give the hacker access to the phone's data, including location, pictures and contacts.
It could also remotely manipulate the phone, using it to take photos and recordings without the owner's knowledge.
Col Conricus said the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had uncovered the plot several months ago but had let it continue under surveillance until they shut it down.
The IDF has previously warned soldiers about the need for vigilance when using smartphones and issued guidelines to try to prevent hacking attempts.
Israel and Hamas are in a permanent state of conflict and both are engaged in intelligence gathering against one another as part of their ongoing hostilities.

Shehbaz meets London lawyers to discuss defamation case

Shehbaz meets London lawyers to discuss defamation case


The Daily Mail had accused former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif of stealing British taxpayers' money
LONDON: The Daily Mail newspaper has not provided a “substantive reply” to the three letters sent by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif’s lawyers at the defamation law firm Carter Ruck, it has been learnt.
Sources have told that Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT) - publishers of The Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail and Mail Online – are communicating with the legal team of Shehbaz and they have exchanged correspondence three times so far but a “substantive reply” has not been provided.
Since his arrival in London around two months ago, Shehbaz Sharif has held three meetings with his lawyers in central London to discuss various aspects of the case. A source said Shehbaz Sharif explained the full background of the case to his lawyers and helped them prepare the skeleton arguments.
PTI leaders and Daily Mail’s reporter David Rose has repeatedly asked Shehbaz Sharif to issue legal proceedings but it's understood that lawyers issue legal notices when all other options exhaust and the judges encourage lawyers to exhaust all means and approach courts as a last resort to settle civil cases.
Shehbaz had served a legal notice to the newspaper on July 26, alleging that David Rose’s report was “politically motivated”.
Sharif had said that the British news publisher and the journalist associated with them, i.e. David Rose, had failed to respond to his legal notice sent prior citing defamation and libel.
The politician wrote on the micro-blogging website: “Daily Mail stated last month that they would respond to our legal notice on or before 22 Aug & journalist David Rose tweeted on 17Aug that it would be “shortly”. My lawyers, however, still have not received a substantive response from DailyMail in defence of their claims against me.”
David Rose tweeted two weeks ago: “Hello friends in Pakistan. Some of you have been asking for an update about the 25 July press statement by former CM Sharif that he was going to issue a legal notice to sue me and the Mail on Sunday over this article. Still nothing has happened.”
Daily Mail had accused Shehbaz and his family of corruption in 2005 earthquake funds provided by the Department for International Department (DFID). The Daily Mail has not made a public comment but its journalist has routinely taken to twitter to comment on the case.
The Daily Mail had alleged that Shehbaz Sharif and his family stole British taxpayers’ money given to Pakistan’s Earthquake Relief and Reconstruction Authority (ERRA) set up to help the victims of the 2005 Pakistan earthquake.
The DFID refuted claims made by The Mail on Sunday of aid money being embezzled and laundered by Shehbaz and his family. Rejecting the assumption that UK taxpayers’ cash meant for earthquake victims was stolen by Shehbaz, DFID maintained that “our robust systems protected UK taxpayers from fraud”.
In a statement, a DFID spokesperson said, “The UK’s financial support to ERRA over this period was for payment by results – which means we only gave money once the agreed work, which was primarily focused on building schools, was completed, and the work audited and verified.”
The DMGT was formerly known as Associated Newspapers.

The eclipse will come to an end at 2:12 am and the moon will emerge from the shadow of the earth.

Did PTI's screams turn out?

If the tone of Chairman NAB Justice Javed Iqbal has changed, then change is in the air. They even said that the winds were changing and no one thought that the ruling party was evil. It is also reported that others are heading towards the front (ie, the government and the party).

Chairman NAB also hoped that the unilateral accountability would be removed. Yesterday, he was speaking at a function as if a politician was speaking. The chairman was upset that more than a hundred billion dollars was borrowed but where the money was spent, no news.

He says that one class is not available for treatment here and there are two patients with one bed in the hospitals, whereas one class who has a cold, goes out of the country for treatment. What Javed Iqbal has said, it is clear that the turn of the government of the PTI leaders and Imran Khan is coming.

There will be no deals, deals or NROs: Chairman NAB
I am afraid that the same is going to happen to Imran Khan and the PTI, which happened to the rulers of the past, and repeatedly warned the current government that if reforms were not implemented in the NAB and no check on this institution. And if the system of balance was not created, then the NAB would be used against the government of PTI and Imran Khan as it was against the PML-N and the PPP.

'Fear that the same is going to happen to Imran Khan and PTI, which happened to the rulers of the past'
Until now, the PTI government was enjoying the screams of the opposition at the hands of the NAB, but now there is danger that screams are being prepared to expel the government and the party leaders, which will certainly be a condemnable step.

Noon League and PPP refrained from reforming NAB law and are now running away. The PTI also made the same mistake and will have to pay. If, in the past, hollow cases against Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Muftiah Ismail, Sheikh Imranul Haq, Fawad Hasan Fawad and many others were made and they were jailed, then the same will happen to PTI leaders tomorrow. Which has been pointed out by Justice Javed Iqbal.

This whole affair was yesterday regretted and condemned, and it will remain regretful and condemnable in the future. I do not know whether it is possible to do so now or not, but if the PTI government still understands, then the NAB's law could try to bring about fundamental reforms so that the institution is not mistakenly used against politicians and bureaucracy. Could do.

Then, when the time comes, the PTI leaders and the Prime Minister will also know how hollow and false cases are made, how people's turbans are made, how people are charged for many months, depending on the allegations. Is jailed for years.

'Within a week the coffee league changed, MQM started to see flaws in government'
Cases are halted year after year, and when the accused are acquitted, the NAB does not even ask why the innocent were kept in jail for months, years, and their honor, based on false and hollow cases. What.

The cause is not yet known whether the NAB chairman changed his mood or whether he had given him a new task. Within a week the Coffee League changed, MQM began to see flaws in the government until the GDA expressed dissatisfaction with the government's performance.

If this happened, if this change is self-made, then what can anyone object to, but if the wind is running, there is no undemocratic force behind the change, then my vote will be with Imran Khan, even as he is. Why and why I came to the government with such great rigging.
