Conservatives’ on-campus flyers maligning ‘left-wing’ professors anger academics, faculty representatives - The Globe and Mail

Joe Friesen writing for The Globe and Mail

The party flyers were spotted on the York University campus in Toronto this week. The flyers bear an image of Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and the words, “Because you can only hear the same left-wing talking points from your professors so many times.”

These Chrome and Firefox extensions put your privacy at risk - The Washington Post

Geoffrey A. Fowler writing for The Washington Post

What he showed me made my jaw drop. Three examples:

  • From DrChrono, a medical records service, we saw the names of patients, doctors, and even medications. From another service, called Kareo, we saw patient names.
  • From Southwest, we saw the first and last names, as well as confirmation numbers, of people checking into flights. From United, we saw last names and passenger record numbers.
  • From OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service, we saw a hundred documents named “tax.” We didn’t click on any of these links to avoid further exposing sensitive data.

Be careful which browser extensions you install and use.
