WASHINGTON — General Dynamics Land Systems has secured a $1.2 billion contract at the close of the fiscal year to build and deliver the U.S. Army’s Interim Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (IM-SHORAD) system.

The Stryker combat vehicle-based system includes a mission equipment package designed by Leonardo DRS. That mission equipment package includes Raytheon’s Stinger vehicle missile launcher.

The estimated completion date of the contract is Sept. 30, 2025, according to a Defense Department contract announcement.

Work locations and funding will be determined with each order.

GDLS officials told Defense News on Oct. 1 that the initial order for the contract is for 28 vehicles and the company has begun ordering material and laying out production for those vehicles.

The first vehicle under this contract will roll off the line in roughly 18 months, but the first platoon will be fielded in March 2021 and the first battalion (of 32 vehicles)

TORONTO — A shadowy group of cyber criminals that attacked a prominent nursing organization and Canadian Tire store has successfully targeted other companies with clients in governments, health care, insurance and other sectors.

Posts on their NetWalker “blog” indicate the recent infiltration of cloud-services company Accreon and document company Xpertdoc, although only the College of Nurses of Ontario has publicly acknowledged being victimized.

Experts say NetWalker surfaced about a year ago but its attacks took off in March as the criminals exploited fears of COVID and people working remotely. The ransomware, like similar malware, often infiltrates computer networks via phishing emails. Such messages masquerade as genuine, prompting users to provide log-in information or inadvertently download malware.

Earlier ransomware attacks focused on encrypting a target’s files — putting them and even backups out of reach. Increasingly, attackers also threaten to publish data stolen during their

We were tested in the past week.

The newsroom staff learned a new computer system for the third time in five years. That came a few weeks after we moved into a new email system. And then a new website.

At the same time staff members were doing hours of training for all of the new systems, they also were doing their best to keep their eyes on the ball by covering their assignments to bring you the news.

No one is complaining too loudly. Change is a fact of life in virtually every business, but even in a business as full of change as this one, it’s rare that so many changes come all at once. I commend these dedicated journalists for their diligence and dedication to working through challenges to bring you the news.

Thank you for your patience as we move quickly to master

Microsoft has had to contend with quite a number of major leaks over the last few years, including everything from parts of the Windows 10 source code in 2017 to a Bing app server that recently leaked multiple terabytes of GPS data and user searches for more than week. On top of all that, it appears that a ~43GB archive of Microsoft source code, including the Windows XP (with Service Pack 1) and Windows Server 2003 operating systems, has reportedly leaked, along with a array of older OSes, including a few versions of Windows CE and MS-DOS.

Both Windows XP SP1 and Windows Server 2003 have been EOL for quite some time now. Current estimates put Windows XP’s market share at about 1.26% (and falling). Windows Server 2003’s share among connected servers is even lower and is estimated to be approximately .57% as of today. The

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Medicine will resume normal operations “in days” following a cyberattack that shut down computer systems early Sunday, health system officials said.

Officials described the outage in a statement Thursday as a “significant information technology system downtime event. It led to the postponement of appointments for patients with elective procedures or other non-critical health concerns, The Omaha World-Herald reported.


The statement, which was provided by Dr. James Linder, Nebraska Medicine’s chief executive officer, said that the system’s emergency rooms have remained open, and no patients were diverted to other hospitals.

“People have done a yeoman’s job in making sure we deliver good patient care,” Linder told the newspaper.



No patients’ electronic medical records were deleted or destroyed, thanks to the system’s back-up and recovery processes.

The statement did not include any further information about the attack’s nature, extent
