A 19-year-old Southern California computer student is facing federal prison for hacking the webcams of Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf and a dozen other young women worldwide and trying to blackmail them by going public with naked photos he secretly took.
Jared James Abrahams of Temecula pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts of extortion and one count of unauthorized access of a computer.
Court records show the victims ranged from their late teens to early 20s, including some minors, and were located in Southern California, Maryland, Ireland, Canada, Russia and Moldova. The plot lasted from early 2012 until June 2013.
Abrahams threatened to post the illegally obtained photos if his targets did not send him more nude images or strip for him on camera. At least two complied with his demands.
“I hacked several girls’ computers and, using their webcams, took photos of them when they weren’t aware,” Abrahams said in court, admitting that he was aware that he was extorting them.
UNREAL … HHS Sec. Sebelius Admits to Senate Panel that Obamacare Navigators Don’t Need Criminal Background Checks … A Convicted Felon Could be a Navigator
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … THIS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A CRIME AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
The Obamacare “Navigators,” the very people who Americans give their person information to and are supposed to help navigate individuals through Obamacare are not required under federal guidelines are not required to undergo criminal background checks. How on earth could the government open Americans up to such identity theft and fraud? Isn’t there enough fraud in healthcare without Obama and his minions opening up more individuals to more? How could this possibly be considered HIPAA compliant?
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admits in a Senate hearing on Obamacare that a felon could be a navigator. And you think the worst part of Obamacare is the website. It would appear your biggest problems may occur once you log on. Good grief, is there any aspect of Obama care that is worth a damn! How could anything this poorly constructed ever get out of the planing stage of project management?
“So I want to ask you about the navigators,” said Senator John Cornyn at a hearing today on Capitol Hill. “The president is in Dallas, Texas today, touting the navigator program, which, as you know, are people who are hired to help people navigate the Affordable Care Act. But I would just like to ask you this question, if you would answer it: Isn’t it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal — sensitive personal — information from the individuals they help to sign-up for the Affordable Care Act?”
“That is true,” said Sebelius. “States could add an additional background checks and other features, but it is not part of the federal requirement”
“So a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them?”
“That is possible,” said Sebelius.
This must be a part of Obama’s felon jobs program.

What else could this disastrous web site possibly do wrong?
Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov website discloses eligibility letters written to other applicants. Hmm, thanks for the break of privacy of unsuspecting individuals who signed onto Healthcare.gov. The security flaw disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state. Just curious, was a data disclosure made to HHS in compliance with HIPAA privacy rules like many healthcare government contractors are supposed to do within a specified amount of time? Or do your own rules not apply to yourself?
As reported at The Weekly Standard, below is a screen shot of one of the “eligibility letters” he wasn’t supposed to receive.
Justin Hadley logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state.
“I was in complete shock,” said Hadley, who contacted Heritage after becoming alarmed at the breach of privacy.
Hadley, a North Carolina father, buys his insurance on the individual market. His insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, directed him to HealthCare.gov in a cancellation letter he received in September.
After multiple attempts to access the problem-plagued website, Hadley finally made it past the registration page Thursday. That’s when he was greeted with downloadable letters about eligibility — for two people in South Carolina.
The document shows that administration officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services were concerned that a lack of testing posed a potentially “high” security risk for the HealthCare.gov website serving 36 states.
Last week, the Associated Press disclosed a government memo revealing the “high” security risk for HealthCare.gov. Those concerns surfaced at Wednesday’s hearing with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who claimed the system was secure.
HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters told the AP, “When consumers fill out their online … applications, they can trust that the information they’re providing is protected by stringent security standards and that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure.”
However, that didn’t stop members of Congress from voicing alarm.
“You accepted a risk on behalf of every user … that put their personal financial information at risk,” Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI) told Sebelius. “Amazon would never do this. ProFlowers would never do this. Kayak would never do this. This is completely an unacceptable level of security.”
NSA Collecting Hundreds of Millions of Contact Lists from Personal E-mail & IM Accounts, Including Americans
The government may be shut down, but the NSA is not …
Nothing is off limits to the NSA and so much for anything personal privacy. According to the NSA and their collection techniques, we are guilty until proven innocent. According to the WAPO, “Each day, the presentation said, the NSA collects contacts from an estimated 500,000 buddy lists on live-chat services as well as from the inbox displays of Web-based e-mail accounts.” But don’t worry, President Barack Obama previously stated that the NSA’s email collecting program “does not apply to U.S. citizens.” Of course this is the same individual who says that the Obamacare website is a success, it is just “glitchy”.
The National Security Agency is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world, many of them belonging to Americans, according to senior intelligence officials and top-secret documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
The collection program, which has not been disclosed before, intercepts e-mail address books and “buddy lists” from instant messaging services as they move across global data links. Online services often transmit those contacts when a user logs on, composes a message, or synchronizes a computer or mobile device with information stored on remote servers.
Rather than targeting individual users, the NSA is gathering contact lists in large numbers that amount to a sizable fraction of the world’s e-mail and instant messaging accounts. Analysis of that data enables the agency to search for hidden connections and to map relationships within a much smaller universe of foreign intelligence targets.
During a single day last year, the NSA’s Special Source Operations branch collected 444,743 e-mail address books from Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from Gmail and 22,881 from unspecified other providers, according to an internal NSA PowerPoint presentation. Those figures, described as a typical daily intake in the document, correspond to a rate of more than 250?million a year.
From The Hill … Maybe some one might want to define and quantify what “required to minimize the ‘acquisition, use and dissemination’ of contacts of U.S. citizens” is!
Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said the program is aimed at “valid foreign intelligence targets,” including terrorists, drug smugglers and human traffickers. He added that the NSA is required to minimize the “acquisition, use and dissemination” of contacts of U.S. citizens.
But of course because of media bias, we hear really nothing of this invasion of privacy. However, as the Lonely Conservative states, image if a Republican was in the White House?
Does this give those that need to sign up for Obamacare a warm fuzzy …
As reported at the The Weekly Standard, a portion of the website of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), an agency of HHS, was apparently hacked as long as two months ago. Makes you want to trust the Healthcare.gov web page and give the government your personal information, doesn’t it?
A portion of the website of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) was apparently hacked as long as two months ago. SAMHSA is an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS also runs the new Obamacare insurance marketplace, Healthcare.gov.
Dozens of pages hawking retail merchandise have been uploaded to the SAMHSA site, ranging from NFL jerseys to Ugg shoes to Armani fragrances. Screen captures of the various pages are shown here:
UPDATE: Shortly after this story was posted, the site nace.samhsa.gov returned an error message saying that the site could not be found. Later, the following message appeared on the site (misspelling included): “This site is undgoing maintenance. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.” Here’s a current screen capture:
