Facebook Hacked; No User Data Compromised (So They Say)

ABC News
Facebook has revealed that it was "targeted in a sophisticated attack" by hackers last month -- this not long after Twitter and The New York Times reported that hackers got into their computers.

Facebook does not say specifically when the attack happened, but it does assure users in a blog post that it has found "no evidence that Facebook user data was compromised." That means that Facebook does not believe that usernames or passwords from the site were obtained by the hackers. Facebook does not reveal, however, what the attackers were able to see.

When reached by ABC News, Facebook declined to comment on who it believes was responsible for the attack.

Facebook's security team has traced the attack to a website that was visited by Facebook employees. The website installed malware on the employees' laptops, even though they were protected by anti-virus software.

"As soon as we discovered the presence of the malware, we remediated all infected machines, informed law enforcement, and began a significant investigation that continues to this day," Facebook says in its blog post.

Given that the attack came through employee laptops, it is possible that the information compromised was simply what was on their personal computers.

Facebook says the compromise began with a vulnerability in Java, the software used to show much of the content on Web browsers. As a result, the Department of Homeland Security released a statement last month urging computer users to disable the software in browsers.

"We don't know much yet about what was compromised, but Java is used with so many applications the vulnerabilities are designed to take advantage of that," Robert Siciliano, a security expert at the anti-malware firm McAfee, told ABC News. "In this case it was a zero-day vulnerability -- it was a brand-new virus -- that they couldn't protect against."

Facebook's announcement comes after Twitter's announcement on Feb. 1 that 250,000 accounts were compromised in an attack. Twitter required affected users to reset their passwords. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal's computer systems were infiltrated by Chinese hackers in late January.

Although Facebook user data seems to be safe at this point, this is a good time to make sure you are following basic online safety tips -- reset your passwords regularly, keep your anti-virus software up to date, and stay away from websites that seem questionable.

Legislative Updates By Delegate Mike McDermott


February 15, 2013

‘HB 104 - Promoting a More Business Friendly State ’

(Annapolis) -- “If the governor is serious about growing business, let’s start by saving the ones that are here. HB-104 provides for penalty forgiveness on first time offenses of minor violations of the code.  After all, the point is to make the corrections, not tax our hard working business owners through a system of petty  fines and overregulation” said Delegate Mike McDermott (R- Worcester & Wicomico) when discussing his proposed bill, HB-104.

HB - 104, entitled ‘Occupational Safety and Health - Good Faith Actions by Business Owners - Penalty Forgiveness,’ prevents the Commissioner of Labor from charging a civil penalty, or fine, against an employer who unintentionally violates the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Act.   Penalty forgiveness will only be given to employers for non-serious violations.  Under this bill, the employer will still receive a citation regarding the violation, but will not receive a civil penalty when the violation is not willful or repetitive, the violation is not serious, and the employer corrects the violation within the timeframe set in the citation.

“It’s tough being a business owner in Maryland, and it is getting tougher to recruit new businesses into our state.  The restrictions imposed on both small businesses and major manufacturing giants bring Red tape that costs business owners precious capital they need to maintain their viability during tough financial times. Penalizing and fining these hard working folks for minor violations that can be immediately corrected does not make us a very  business friendly state” concluded Delegate McDermott.

Delegate McDermott’s bill, HB 104, was heard in the Economic Matters Committee on February 12th.

Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby: Federal Criminal Complaints Filed Charging 4 Men

Tony Lamont Mills
4 Men Face Federal Gun and Drug Charges In Maryland

BALTIMORE — Federal criminal complaints filed in the District of Maryland charge four men, initially arrested and charged in Worcester County, Md., with gun and drug violations. The charges follow an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Maryland State Police (MSP), Worcester County Sheriff's Office, the Berlin Police Department and the Ocean City Police Department with the assistance of the Worcester County State's Attorney Office.

Tony Lamont Mills, 32, of Berlin, Md., has been charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and possession of a firearm by a felon. The second criminal complaint charges Ramon M. Diamos, 47, and Arlon J. Macatangay, 51, both of Jersey City, N.J., and Ricky Ibanga, 38, of Bayonne, N.J., with conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute in excess of 50 grams of crystal methamphetamine.

The State's Attorney for Worcester County Beau Oglesby said, "I applaud the combined efforts of Worcester County Sheriff's Office, the Maryland State Police, the Ocean City Police Department, the Berlin Police Department, ATF and HSI for their investigations in these cases. The adoption of these cases by the United States Attorney's Office demonstrates the strength of the relationship between local and federal authorities as we work together to pursue the eradication of controlled dangerous substances from our streets and to remove the criminals who are armed with illegal firearms from our communities."

According to Mills' criminal complaint, on at least two occasions in August 2012, an undercover police detective conducted two hand to hand purchases of heroin from Mills after meeting Mills in his vehicle. On Aug. 31, 2012, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Mills' residence and discovered Mills hiding in a bedroom closet, where officers also located a loaded .32 caliber revolver and a box of .32 caliber ammunition. During the search, officers also recovered heroin, marijuana and drug packaging material.

Mills faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute heroin and up to life in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Mills also had an initial appearance Feb. 13 in U.S. District Court in Baltimore and is detained.

According to the statement of facts filed in support of the arrest of Diamos, Macatangay and Ibanga, the three were pulled over by a MSP trooper on Route 13, near the Virginia state line for a traffic stop. The trooper learned that Diamos was wanted on a New Jersey warrant and he was subsequently arrested. A clear glass pipe and a small amount of methamphetamine were recovered from Diamos' front pants pocket. During a subsequent search of the car, the trooper discovered a manilla envelope that contained 240 grams of crystal methamphetamine and a receipt in Macatangay's name.

Macatangay and Ibanga were then arrested and additional methamphetamine was recovered from Macatangay's jacket pocket.

Diamos, Macatangay and Ibanga face a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Diamos, Macatangay and Ibanga had an initial appearance Feb. 13 in U.S. District Court in Baltimore and are detained. Ibanga is scheduled for a detention hearing Feb. 15.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael C. Hanlon and Christopher J. Romano.

REWARD Increased and HOT LINE Has Been Set UP


The Accomack County Sheriff’s Office is putting forth funds to increase the reward related to the Accomack County arsons. As of Thursday, persons coming forward with information that leads to an arrest and conviction in these cases could be eligible for a reward of up to $25,000.
To notify the Eastern Shore community about the reward increase and a new Accomack County Arson Tip Line number, state police and the sheriff’s office are also distributing and posting new printed fliers throughout the Eastern Shore. Anyone with information about the arsons and/or individual(s) responsible is encouraged to contact law enforcement via a new Tip Line dedicated to these investigations. Text, call or email at 757-655-1437.

“The sheriff’s office and state police have received an overwhelming response from the public with tips and information, but there are still residents out there who know something about the persons involved in setting the fires,” Accomack County Sheriff Todd Godwin said. “I hope the increase in the reward will help persuade these residents to now come forward. These fires must be stopped – for the safety of our property owners, for the safety of our volunteer firefighters, and for the safety and wellbeing of our close-knit community.”

From Nov. 12, 2012, through Feb. 11, 2013, there have been 48 structure and debris fires intentionally set in Accomack County. On Feb. 13, 2013, it was discovered that someone tried to burn down the Leatherbury United Methodist Church in Onancock, Va. The church building suffered only minor damage. No one, to date, has been injured in any of the arsons.

“As we have stated before, state police are aggressively pursuing all leads related to these arsons,” Capt. T.A. Reibel, Commander of the BCI Chesapeake Field Office. “We are also confident, based on the evidence collected at the scenes, that the majority of the arsons are the work of a collaboration of individuals. The information needed to put a stop to these fires and effect an arrest is out there – we just need the right people to text us, call us or email us with what they know.”

Initially, a $5,000 reward was made available through the International Association of Arson Investigators ( The Sheriff’s Office is allocating the additional $20,000.

This statement is issued in response to inquiries regarding the status and scope of the Maryland State Police investigation into the shooting that occurred February 12, 2013 in Owings Mills, during a Baltimore Police Academy training exercise.

This criminal investigation is being conducted by the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit, which also conducts criminal investigations into all police shootings involving Maryland state troopers and allied police departments when requested. Homicide Unit investigators are being assisted by State Police investigators from the Criminal Investigation Bureau and crime scene technicians and scientists from the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division.

State Police investigators have conducted and are continuing to conduct interviews with persons who were at the shooting scene, as well as anyone who may have information related to what occurred. In addition, evidence collected from the scene will be analyzed and reviewed in an effort to corroborate witness information. State Police investigators are receiving full cooperation from Baltimore Police Department personnel.

The Maryland State Police investigation is being conducted as a criminal investigation with the purpose of determining if a crime occurred and who was responsible for that crime. The Maryland State Police is not conducting an administrative investigation. An administrative investigation examines the adherence of personnel to department policies and procedures.

Maryland State Police investigators will conduct a thorough, detailed, and appropriate criminal investigation. As a result, a prediction of when the criminal investigation will be complete cannot be made. Based on the circumstances known at this point, there is no doubt the criminal investigation will take at least weeks.

When the State Police criminal investigation is complete, it will be forwarded to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office for review. That office will determine any action taken based on the results of the criminal investigation.

To maintain the integrity of this criminal investigation, the Maryland State Police will not make further public comment or provide developing details as the investigation progresses. This is State Police policy regarding ongoing criminal investigations.

You Didn't Ask But I'm Going To Tell You Anyway...

Current fire investigation news in Accomack County yesterday afternoon and this morning stated that there was an attempted arson at the Leatherbury United Methodist Church in Onancock, Va.

The report continues to say that Va. State Police were alerted about the incident shortly before 2 pm on Wednesday. Investigators determined that the incident had occurred within the past 24 hours.  Damages are minimal and include the social hall of this small country church.

Key word- Minimal.  Minimal compared to what?  The Leatherbury United Methodist Church is a small country church, like many in Accomack County.  It sits among the trees with a church parking lot being its nearest neighbor.  But on Sunday and holidays along with special occasions the tiny country church comes alive with a closely-knit congregation NOW faced with repairs for damages done at the hands of those who needed the satisfaction and enjoyment of creating more harm and fear into a community that has long ago had enough!

The attack on this small quiet church is probably the icing on the cake for most residents of Accomack County. We have exhausted fire departments and investigators.  And just like the residents of the community they are frustrated yet, at the sound of the tones from the 911 center are still eager to man the trucks and fight fires, giving it their best as they always have.

Yet, in spite of it all Accomack County continues to allow control burns.  Just early this morning fire departments, with the assistance of a Worcester County department, were called to to a rekindle of a control burn from Wednesday afternoon.  Under the circumstances this seems mindless and further wastes rescourses of the fire departments and all others that must attend the scene regardless of the time. 

Accomack County residents MUST keep in mind that once arrests are made the arson cases will not end.  Perhaps the fires will cease but there will be days in court for those charged and the FULL support of the community will be needed.  It will then be OUR time to report to court to show our continued support for ALL forces that has fought so diligently within the past months to protect US and our community.  A CLEAR message needs to be sent and that can be done simply by showing up at the court house. 

Anyone with information about fires is asked to call the Virginia State Police toll-free at 1-800-582-8350 or (757) 424-6820; or call the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office at (757) 787-1131.

There is a $5,000 reward.

Change Maryland on Offshore Wind Proposal Being Considered in General Assembly

note: Marylanders are already paying more for electricity than the U.S. average.   At nearly 11 cents a kilowatt hour, Marylanders are paying more for their electricity than residents and businesses in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. 

Annapolis - Change Maryland Chairman Larry Hogan released the following statement today as Gov. Martin O'Malley attempted to revise his offshore wind energy proposal in a key legislative committee today.

"It seems Martin O'Malley's priority is to make electricity and gas more expensive. He is pushing an increase in the gas tax and pushing a wind energy policy that is not cost effective and guarantees that electricity will be more expensive for rate payers.

"At the close of the last session, the governor ignored the budgeting process which resulted in a train wreck.  Instead he was out on the steps of the capital, leading wind energy activists in chant that said 'all we re saying is give wind a chance.'

"There are no assurances that this offshore wind proposal will not devolve into crony-capitalism that reward friends of the governor and political donors.

"While there may be political support for offshore wind among narrow special interest groups, 96% of Marylanders are opposed to higher taxes.  And make no mistake, the Governor's offshore wind proposal is simply a tax by another name.  

"This governor has raised taxes and fees 24 times, taking $2.4 billion out of the economy.  Maybe instead of giving wind a chance, it's time to give hard-working families a chance."

Legislative Updates By Delegate Mike McDermott

Press Release
February 12, 2013
  • ‘The Intersection of US 113 and MD 12
  •  Will Finally Receive a Traffic Signal’
    (Annapolis) -- “The Maryland Department of Transportation has finally recognized the dire need for a traffic signal at the US 113 MD 12 intersection.  Snow Hill residents and travelers can now rest assure that their travels through that area will be much safer.

    Delegate McDermott received a letter today from the Maryland Department of Transportation stating its plans of installing a traffic signal at the intersection of Us 113 and MD 12  by mid-summer.

    (NEW YORK, NY) – An Anne Arundel County man was arrested early this morning at a New York airport after a warrant was issued charging him with the murder of a Frederick County man whose body was found in the trunk of his car late last year.

    The suspect is identified as Michael A. Stahlnecker, 51, of the 1700-block of Fallsway Drive, Crofton, Md. He is charged on a warrant from the District Court of Maryland for Anne Arundel County with first degree murder, second degree murder, first degree assault, second degree assault, reckless endangerment, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime.

    Stahlnecker was arrested shortly before 6:00 a.m. today by New York/New Jersey Port Authority Police, special agents from ICE Homeland Security Investigations, and the US Marshals Service, as he prepared to board a flight at the JFK International Airport. Investigators from the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit, the State Apprehension Team, and the Frederick County Narcotics Task Force were with federal agents and Port Authority Police when the arrest was made. Stahlnecker is currently held on a fugitive warrant in New York pending extradition proceedings to return him to Maryland.

    The victim is identified as John P. Ryan, 37, of Frederick, Md. His body was found in his 2007 Lexus in a parking lot in the 15000-block of Somerville Drive, Derwood, Md., on the afternoon of December 3, 2012. Police had been searching for Ryan since his wife reported him missing to the Frederick Police Department on November 29, 2012.

    Since the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit became involved with this investigation, investigators have worked closely with the Frederick County Narcotics Task Force. Task force investigators had initiated an investigation in the summer of 2012 into allegations that Ryan and associates were involved in the importation and distribution of marijuana. Stahlnecker was identified as a close associate of Ryan’s in this operation.

    State Police homicide investigators believe Ryan had a meeting scheduled with Stahlnecker on the morning of November 28, 2012, at a warehouse leased by the suspect in the 3300-block of Laurel Fort Meade Road, Laurel, Md. A search warrant served at the address resulted in the recovery of Ryan’s blood near the rear loading dock and on the bristles of a broom outside the rear of the business.
    Investigators believe evidence indicates Ryan was shot at the warehouse location and then driven in his car to the address in Montgomery County where his body was found in the trunk. A motive has not been confirmed at this time, however investigators determined Stahlnecker owed large amounts of money to several persons.

    The investigation is continuing.

    Worcester County Library ~ Story Time


    (CUMBERLAND, MD) – Maryland State Police are continuing the investigation into the murder of an inmate who died from injuries sustained in an assault late last year at a state prison in Allegany County.

    The victim is identified as Jerod Pridget, 19, who was an inmate at the Western Correctional Institution. Pridget was assaulted in his cell on November 26, 2012. He was pronounced dead at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center on November 28, 2012.

    A suspect has been identified and is an inmate at the same correctional facility. Charges against him are pending a presentation to an Allegany County Grand Jury. He will be identified publicly when charges are filed.

    The investigation into the initial assault on Pridget was conducted by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services Internal Investigations Unit. After the victim’s death and autopsy results concluding the manner of death was homicide, the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit continued the investigation, with continued assistance from the Internal Investigations Unit.

    The investigation indicates that shortly before noon on November 26, 2012, an inmate contacted correctional officers and said his cell mate, identified as Pridget, had ‘an accident.’ Correctional officers responded to the cell and found Pridget unresponsive, with what appeared to be injuries to his head.

    Medical staff at the hospital provided emergency care and Pridget was transported to Western Maryland Health System in Cumberland. On November 27, 2012, he was transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead a day later.

    Forensic evidence was collected from the victim’s cell the day of the assault by Maryland State Police crime scene technicians, whose assistance had been requested by Internal Investigation Unit investigators. The examination of that evidence at the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division laboratory is continuing. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore determined Pridget died from blunt force trauma.
