itwbennett writes "The FBI issued a warning Wednesday about a new twist on a long-running computer fraud technique, known as Automated Clearing House fraud. With ACH fraud, criminals install malware on a small business' computer and use it to log into the company's online bank account. In this latest twist on the scam, the criminals are apparently looking for companies that are hiring online and then sending malicious software programs that are doctored to look like job applications. One unnamed company recently lost $150,000 in this way, according to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center. 'The malware was embedded in an e-mail response to a job posting the business placed on an employment website,' the FBI said in a press release. The malware, a variant of the Bredolab Trojan, 'allowed the attacker to obtain the online banking credentials of the person who was authorized to conduct financial transactions within the company.'"

It is known that some bacteria only need 0.3 micromolar fosfor to multiply. NASA has not responded yet to the claim.

Oracle had asked for a payout of $1.7bn, which SAP had countered to $140m. SAP are considering post trial motions / appeal. Could this leave SAP in a weakened position / ripe for takeover? What will the eventual consequences be for SAP?
