Prison video visitation systems are sometimes the only way family and lawyers can talk to inmates, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the security of those systems recently suffered a major lapse. Researcher Bob Diachenko told TechCrunch that video visitation provider HomeWAV left a database dashboard publicly accessible without a password since April, exposing “thousands” of calls between inmates and their attorneys. Anyone could read call logs and transcripts.

HomeWAV shut down the dashboard shortly after TC reported the issue. Company chief John Best confirmed the incident and said that a third-party vendor inadvertently removed the password restriction that kept the server private. He also promised to notify inmates, their families and lawyers.

It’s a particularly serious violation. While many US prisons record calls, they’re not supposed to monitor calls with lawyers due to attorney-client privilege — this suggests the calls were recorded in spite of that rule. And when

Lawyers Set For $88 Million Windfall

October 8, 2020 | technology | No Comments

The lawyers who pursued the Apple Batterygate case are set for a massive $88 million payout.

Owners of various iPhone models had until this week to enter a claim for compensation from Apple for the Batterygate scandal, in which Apple admitted to hampering iPhone performance to improve battery life on its devices. Apple has never admitted any wrongdoing, but has agreed to pay a settlement of up to $500 million.

The Fairness Hearing is set to be heard in the District Court for the Northern District of California on December 4, where it should be decided how much each claimant will receive. Consumers with affected iPhones may be awarded up to $500 per handset, although the payout is likely to be much lower.

The hearing will also hear any objections to the

Attorneys for a Montana real estate agent are eyeing the assets of a neo-Nazi website operator to collect a $14 million court judgment against the man for an anti-Semitic online “troll storm” that he orchestrated against the Jewish woman and her family, court filings show.

More than a year has passed since a federal judge in Montana entered a default judgment against Andrew Anglin, the Daily Stormer’s founder and publisher. Plaintiffs’ lawyers say the Ohio native has failed to pay any of the monetary award to Tanya Gersh.

Gersh’s attorneys from the Southern Poverty Law Center say they intend to identify any of Anglin’s assets that could be used to satisfy the judgment.
