Chipotle Hacked In Massive Breach – Customer Payment Data Stolen From Thousands Of Restaurants $CMG

Chipotle announced late Friday that Hackers used malware to infiltrate Chipotle Mexigan Grill Inc’s ($CMG) payment system over a three week period beginning in late March – stealing sensitive customer banking information, including account numbers and internal verification codes that could be used to drain debit-card linked bank accounts.

The announcement was made following an investigation into an incident first reported on April 25th of “unauthorized activity” detected in some of their Canadian restaurants.

The malware searched for track data (which sometimes has cardholder name in addition to card number, expiration date, and internal verification code) read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card as it was being routed through the POS device.

No word on how many customers are affected, however Chipotle said most of their 2,250 or so restaurants were hit between March 24th and April 18th. Click here to see the list of affected restaurants by state.

Chipotle refused to upgrade to chip readers in 2015

The malware used in the attack steals data found within the magnetic stripe of payment cards. Although it is not clear if EMV (chipped) payment cards would have been susceptible to the hack, Chipotle notably declined to use them in 2015 – citing inefficiencies caused by delays in the authentication process in a fast paced food service environment.

The breach could mean big trouble for shares of Chipotle, which have only partially recovered from an E.coli outbreak in late 2015. According to Reuters, security analysts say Chipotle will likely face a fine based on the size of the breach and number of records compromised.

“If your data was stolen through a data breach that means you were somewhere out of compliance” with payment industry data security standards, Julie Conroy, research director at Aite Group, a research and advisory firm.

“In this case, the card companies will fine Chipotle and also hold them liable for any fraud that results directly from their breach,” said Avivah Litan, a vice president at Gartner Inc (IT.N) specializing in security and privacy.

It is uncertain if and how Chipotle’s decision not to adopt chipped card payments will factor into fines levied against the company by credit card companies.

Poor $CMG just can’t catch a break!

Rex Tillerson Kicks Ramadan Celebration To The Curb At State Dept

Less than a week after Rex Tillerson and President Trump engaged in Saudi swordplay, the Secretary of State has declined to honor the religion of peace during Ramadan – breaking with nearly 20 years of tradition.

The State Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs sent Tillerson a request to hold an Eid al-Fitr reception to honor Ramadan. I’m guessing Rex took one look at ‘Eid al Fitr’ and read no further.

His rejection of the request suggests there are no plans this year for any high-profile Ramadan function at the State Department. The month of fasting and prayer for Muslims gets under way in many countries on Saturday.

When asked by Reuters to comment on Tillerson declining a request to host an Eid al-Fitr event in July for Ramadan, a State Department spokesperson said:

We are still exploring possible options for observance of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the month of Ramadan. U.S. ambassadors are encouraged to celebrate Ramadan through a variety of activities, which are held annually at missions around the world.” –Reuters

In other words if public backlash is loud enough and/or someone lawyers up, the State Dept. might cobble something together.

Evil White Chicks Shutter Portland Burrito Stand After ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Witch Hunt

Two enterprising Portland women who opened up a Burrito stand have been run out of business after being mercilessly witch-hunted for ‘cultural appropriation,’ according to the Daily Wire. Friends Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly traveled as far as Mexico to learn how to make a perfect burrito.

“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” said Connelly. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins.” –Daily Wire

After they cracked the code and created a menu, Kali and LC opened a tiny weekend business – Kook’s Burritos. Reviews were fantastic, until local liberal news outlets got whiff of the white women’s little research expedition to Mexico. Several articles were published by SJW’s losing their shit over two white women daring to serve ‘non-white’ food.

“Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly. These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise,” accused The Portland Mercury.

“People of color are nothing more than an afterthought when the white perpetrators of this tradition continue to do this on a regular basis. While Portland is supposedly a progressive place, super liberal white people usually only have other super white liberal people to answer to — which means this cycle of cultural appropriation will never end until people of color call attention to it”

Aaaaand they’re closed.

This is why you should just make food named after yourself like Jeff Goldblum.

Former Navy Seal To Katy Perry: ‘Go To Hell – Hold One Of Your Concerts In Syria And See How It Goes’

Katy Perry, a woman so crazy Russell Brand divorced her over text message, broke down in tears Saturday night at a concert and urged the crowd ‘not to let terrorists win’ in response to the Manchester bombing. Tuesday morning, she went on the radio to tell everyone all we need is open borders, hugs, and love in response to horrific acts of mass murder. Basically this.

Paul Joseph Watson can bring you fully up to speed:

And today on Fox, former Navy Seal Carl Higbie who was responsible for triggering an entire CNN panel last week, had a few choice words for Ms. Perry – daring her to hold a concert in Syria if she thinks peace and love is all it’ll take to conquer ISIS:

“We don’t have people who respect the culture of the United States of America. You have people like Katy Perry, for instance. I mean, this woman has said ‘oh we need to give them hugs, hug it out. Go to hell Katy Perry.

“Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how it goes.”

WND News Suspended By Twitter For Seth Rich Tweet

What makes the Seth Rich murder highly suspicious isn’t so much the evidence – it’s the response; from the DC Police’s unwillingness to clear up some of the murky details of the story, to the MSM chastising anyone questioning the official report, to a David Brock-linked DNC crisis management firm representing / muzzling the Rich family.

Earlier this week, WorldNetDaily (WND) – the 434th most popular website in the USA, published an article entitled


“Ex-DNC chairwoman reportedly asked cops why investigator is ‘snooping’ into mysterious case”

The article details private detective Rich Wheeler’s revelation that Donna Brazille, the DNC’s former interim chairwoman, allegedly called police to find out why Wheeler was ‘snooping’ into the Seth Rich case.

The detective, Rod Wheeler, told WND: “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile. Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?” –WND

To promote the story, WND sent this tweet on Tuesday:

On Wednesday WND received a twitter message instructing WND to delete the tweet – with the note “If you feel that your account has been locked in error, you can appeal by contacting our support team here.”

WND proceeded to ignore Twitter’s request – only to find that their account had been suspended for 12 hours!

Twitter declined to comment when contacted by WND.

As ZeroHedge reports, it is unclear which of Twitter’s rules WND violated:

Of course, Twitter refused to highlight which of their rules (which can be found here) had been violated when asked by WND.  After a quick review, we must admit that we would have a hard time identifying which rule was ‘violated’ as well.  Here is a list of Twitter’s “Abusive Behavior” rules…see if you can figure out which of them was violated.

  • Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.
  • Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:
    • if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;
    • if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;
    • if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and
    • if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.
  • Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
  • Multiple account abuse: Creating multiple accounts with overlapping uses or in order to evade the temporary or permanent suspension of a separate account is not allowed.
  • Private information: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address, or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission. In addition, you may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent. Read more about our private information policy here.
  • Impersonation: You may not impersonate others through the Twitter service in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others. Read more about our impersonation policy here.
  • Self-harm: You may encounter someone considering suicide or self harm on Twitter. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person expressing our concern and the concern of other users on Twitter or providing resources such as contact information for our mental health partners.

So – does Twitter consider the Seth Rich story to be Fake News? Do they have the luxury of absolute knowledge that the Seth Rich murder was 1nothing more than a botched robbery? If so, can we please see how Twitter was able to discount the growing pile of evidence that at minimum warrants an official disclosure of the investigation from DC Police – if not the federal investigation that one GOP lawmaker has called for?

If this is all just Twitter’s opinion, it sets a very dangerous precedent.

Trump Scolds Smug NATO Members Over Paying Fair Share

Trump loves pouring molten silver over people’s heads, doesn’t he? Remember when he eviscerated the elites at the Al Smith charity dinner?

Speaking at a ceremony Thursday dedicated to NATO’s resolve to fight terrorism, Trump stood about 10 feet from a vicious pack of fidgeting globalists and delivered a decisive scolding over how cheap they are. The President mentioned that while the world faces a massive threat from terrorism, 23 of the 28 member nations aren’t paying their fair share into the alliance, and just 2% of each country’s GDP would go far to shore up the imbalances.

Leaders of NATO member nations did not take well to the scolding – folding their arms, awkwardly smirking, and whispering sweet globalist nothings to each other.

Kill the losers!

All people who cherish life must unite in finding, exposing, and removing these killers and extremists. And yes, losers. They are losers. Wherever they exist in our societies, we must drive them out – and never, ever let them back in.

You have thousands and thousands of people pouring into our various countries and spreading throughout, and in many cases we have no idea who they are. We must be tough, we must be strong, and we must be vigilant.

These grave security concerns are the same reason that I have been very very direct with sec. Stoltenberg and members of the alliance in saying Nato members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations.

Trump Visits 14 Year Old Cancer Patient In Israel – MSM Refuses To Cover

During Donald Trump’s whirlwind 27 hour stop in Israel this week, he took the time to visit a young cancer patient whose dream it was to meet the President.

14 year old Emilee Imbar has been battling cancer for the past seven years at the Rachashei Lev center for pediatric cancer. Director Shimi Geshayed reached out through long time supporter Benjamin Netanyahu in order to arrange the visit – a dream of Emilee’s, who said she would be “glad to sit with you for a business metting [sic].

Was it just a gratuitous photo op?

Maybe, but this wouldn’t be the first time Trump has been there for an ill child. Nearly thirty years ago he came to the rescue of a desperate family in need.

Back in 1988, Rabbi Harold “Hershy” Ten and his wife Judy were at their wits end. They needed to get their then three-year-old son Andrew to New York City from Los Angeles for medical treatment. The toddler suffered from a rare and undiagnosed breathing illness.

But commercial airlines declined to fly Andrew, who couldn’t leave home without several pieces of medical equipment including a portable oxygen tank and suction machine, according to an archived Jewish Telegraphic Agency story.

Desperate for help, the family called on Trump, who agreed to provide his private Boeing 727. Once the plane landed in LaGuardia, Andrew was whisked to the Schneider Children’s Hospital of Long Island Jewish Medical Center. –TimesOfIsrael

Even the degenerate partisan shills at Snopes say it’s true.

Trump wasn’t pandering for votes, mind you – and though the MSM would never tell you, he’s known for random acts of kindness – from paying off a good Samaritan’s mortgage, to sending $10k to a bus driver who talked a woman out of suicide, to taking care of Jennifer Hudson right after her family was murdered, to saving a Georgia farm from foreclosure in 1986, to stopping a mugger actively beating a guy with a bat. He also helped a lost child find the lobby of the Plaza hotel.

Over the years, the President has also given nearly a half million dollars through his foundation to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Operation Smile – which offers free surgeries to children in developing countries born with cleft palates. –Forbes

Yet, the MSM failed to cover Trump’s recent visit with cancer patient Emilee Imbar

It seems as though the MSM’s disdain for all things Trump has resulted in a media blackout. Perhaps the optics of an act of kindness by the President would have forced liberals to confront two narrative-destroying facts: Donald Trump is a friend of Israel, and he isn’t a monster.

Considering the MSM’s deep ties to Judaism, the media must hate Trump more than they care about reporting a feel-good story they would have fallen all over had it been any other President. Sad!

Manchester Attack May Be Used To Justify Massive Orwellian Internet Crackdown In UK

Britain – arguably the most surveilled country in the world, is wasting no time capitalizing on tragedy and death to advance their Orwellian grip on UK society.

According to The Independent, if Theresa May is reelected on June 8th, the UK government is considering using the deadly Manchester bombing to implement advanced tools to filter, monitor and otherwise go full nanny-state on individual privacy – including a mandate that ISPs provide backdoors into personal communications devices – making them legally defensible.

“We will do this as soon as we can after the election, as long as we get back in,” The Sun said it was told by a government minister. “The level of threat clearly proves there is no more time to waste now.

“The social media companies have been laughing in our faces for too long.”

This comes 6 days after The Independent reported that Theresa May’s conservative party is planning a host of new internet regulations in order to ensure that there is no “safe space for terrorists to be able to communicate online.”

“Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet,” it states. “We disagree.”

The plans will allow Britain to become “the global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the internet”, the manifesto claims. –The Independent

May’s rules would also grant greater powers for the government to punish internet service providers (ISPs) who don’t comply with the new mandates.

Legislation would be introduced to protect the public from abuse and offensive material online, while everyone would have the right to wipe material that was posted when they were under 18. Internet companies would also be asked to help promote counter-extremism narratives – potentially echoing the government’s Prevent programme. There would be new rules requiring companies to make it ever harder for people to access pornography and violent images, with all content creators forced to justify their policies to the government. –Buzzfeed

Thinking about a mid-afternoon unemployed wank to some interracial midget porn? Nope.

The new rules would include laws that make it harder than ever to access pornographic and other websites. The government will be able to place restrictions on seeing adult content and any exceptions would have to be justified to ministers, the manifesto suggests.

And this is exactly why half of China connects to the internet through a VPN.

Once again the self destructive nanny-state caves to deadly political correctness – where alternative viewpoints are attacked and branded for presenting opinions that challenge carefully crafted state narratives, and offensive traditions are eradicated to make room for things like liberating hijabs.

Maybe this huge crackdown on hate speech and porn is designed to cater to the sensibilities of a growing population of easily offended Muslims in the UK?

And people wonder why nationalism is sweeping Europe.
