A performer at former President Barack Obama’s birthday party managed to take stealth pictures of the opulent Martha’s Vineyard event and share them with Instagram followers.

Rapper Trap Beckham and manager TJ Chapman discreetly snapped pics of the event’s high-end food, drink and swag offerings and talked to their followers as the party unfolded, according to screenshots of the posts, which were later deleted under the event’s photography ban.

I guess because it was too big for the current rules, maskless, and non-vegan.

Guess the hypocritical socialist elite can’t have the bourgeoisie and the peasants see the opulence of today’s Marie Antoinettes!

Argh!

SECURITY: STUPID secondary identification

How Hackers Reportedly Side-Stepped Google’s Two-Factor Authentication

Writing on Ello, Blakeman describes how hackers gained access to his Instagram account through his Gmail. Even though he had two-factor turned on, the hackers were able to reset his Instagram password through Gmail and take control of his account (which has since been restored). So how did they do it? Blakeman says that Wired’s Mat Honan, himself a veteran of an epic hack, helped him by suggesting he check with his cellphone provider.

It turns out his number had been forwarded to a different number—which is how the hackers gained access:

“The attack actually started with my cell phone provider, which somehow allowed some level of access or social engineering into my Google account, which then allowed the hackers to receive a password reset email from Instagram, giving them control of the account.”

I suspect it’s those STUPID secondary identification authenticators!

Once again, if your mother’s maiden name isn’t “R2D2GMAIL” at Google and “R2D2AMAZON” at Amazon, then you are asking to be hacked.

Sorry, but, I use LASTPASS and just keep the secondaries in the notes. 

AND, I never reuse a password anywhere!

YMMV.
