SEC Says Cybercriminals Hacked Its Files, May Have Used Secret Data For Trading

The Securities and Exchange Commission says cybercriminals got into the agency's files last year and accessed information that might have been used to give them a secret edge in trading. The SEC says it had known about the intrusion in 2016 into its Edgar filing system, but learned this month that "nonpublic information" accessed may have been used for "illicit gain." "Edgar houses millions of filings that companies are required to submit to the SEC so that they can be perused by investors," as noted by Bloomberg. The agency says the "software vulnerability ... was patched promptly after discovery," and didn't reveal any personally identifiable information. A statement by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton notes that potential damage done by cybercrime increases all the time, and that "a large portion of the costs ... are borne by investors, consumers and other important constituents." Politico reports that Congress has questioned the SEC about Edgar's security: "In May 2015, Sen. Chuck Grassley

Obama Argues Against Dark Worldview, Defends Health Care Law

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDU_9Ms9-Sw Former President Barack Obama delivered a rebuke of President Trump's "America First" worldview Wednesday in New York, the same city where Trump is meeting with world leaders on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. "You have to start with a premise and believe that multilateral institutions and efforts are important," Obama said, "and you don't have to cede all your sovereignty and it doesn't make you less patriotic to believe that. You just have to have some sense — and read." He also offered a vigorous defense of his signature health care law, the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as Senate Republicans in Washington, D.C., try to corral the final votes needed to pass their latest effort to repeal and replace it. "It is aggravating," the former president said of watching yet another repeal effort, "and all of this being done without any ... rationale, it frustrates. And it is certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every

St. Louis On Edge As Protesters Expected To Gather Again

Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit AILSA CHANG, HOST: Protesters are planning to gather again this evening in St. Louis, as they have most nights since Friday. That's when a judge found a white police officer not guilty of murder in the fatal shooting of a black motorist six years ago. NPR's David Schaper is in St. Louis. He reports that many there are criticizing some of the police tactics during the protests, accusing them of further aggravating tensions while making mass arrests. DAVID SCHAPER, BYLINE: Landy Fort says he was not a part of the massive demonstration downtown St. Louis Sunday night. The 22-year-old from north St. Louis says he was just riding his bike around to see what was going on when police officers asked him to leave. LANDY FORT: And you know, I was like, OK, I'm on my way. So you know, I was getting ready to make my turn. And they approach me again. And when they approach me again, they got out. They got out with their sticks, with their batons, all of that.

Hurricane Maria Hits Puerto Rico At Time When The Island Is Already Struggling

Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: Puerto Rico has been battered by Hurricane Maria all day. The hurricane's 140 mph winds have torn off roofs and blown out windows in hospitals and government buildings. Twenty inches of rain have been recorded in some areas, causing rivers to overflow and flooding neighborhoods across the island. NPR's Greg Allen reports that Hurricane Maria presents a new challenge for Puerto Rico at a time when it is already in deep financial trouble. GREG ALLEN, BYLINE: In Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz says it's hard for her to process the neighborhoods that have been flooded and the number of homes destroyed by Hurricane Maria. But at a news conference today, she said Puerto Ricans are resilient. (SOUNDBITE OF PRESS CONFERENCE) CARMEN YULIN CRUZ: (Through interpreter) Maria will not defeat us. And as soon as our crews can safely hit the streets, we'll start to rebuild, I guarantee you. We are a country filled with

Puerto Rico And U.S. Virgin Islands Hit By Hurricane Maria

Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: The Caribbean is hurting today. Hurricane Maria has hit the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The storm is being called the strongest to have hit Puerto Rico in more than 80 years. What's worse is these islands were still recovering from Hurricane Irma, which hit only two weeks ago. AILSA CHANG, HOST: Earlier today I spoke with David Mapp. He's the executive director of the Virgin Islands Port Authority. He oversees the airports and public seaports in the U.S. islands of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. I reached him on St. Croix and asked him what the last 24 hours have been like for him. DAVID MAPP: I spent the night in the airport. What I normally do with a team of staffers - we stay in the airport when hurricanes come through so that we can get it ready for receiving relief aircraft, military aircraft coming in and FEMA as soon as possible. CHANG: And when you're holed up in the airport for hours and hours, what did
