Greece: Political uncertainty is the key in protracted debt crisis

Political uncertainty and what appears to be a "perennial confrontation" between Greece and its international creditors are the main reasons the debt-laden country has been unable to exit its protracted financial crisis, according to a study carried out by Greek lender Eurobank, local newspaper "Kathimerini" (Daily) reported on Thursday.

Hackers like to steal you mobile phone number

Hackers have discovered that one of the most central elements of online security, the mobile phone number, is also one of the easiest to steal; and it's is an increasingly growing problem, the New York Times reports. In a growing number of online attacks, hackers have been calling up Verizon, T-Mobile U.S., Sprint and AT&T and asking them to transfer control of a victim’s phone number to a device under the control of the hackers.
