    Golocal247.com news

The Russian president had given specific instructions on the operation’s objectives to defeat Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton, and help get her opponent elected, the Washington Post revealed in a special report. Citing interviews with current and former senior US officials, the newspaper detailed how the Obama administration allegedly considered retaliating against Putin by releasing intelligence on him, and planting “cyber weapons” in Russia’s infrastructure to destroy its economy.

  • Which is the best Haribo candy?

    Golocal247.com news

    It's not just the bears. Friends, let us repeat: it's not just the bears. The (wonderful) world of Haribo is rife with unimaginably delicious, squishy, delightful candies ... and a few duds. Such is the world of the sweet treat. So we grabbed a bunch of Haribo candies available in the U.S. — FYI, some of the labels are in German because that was the deal at Economy Candy — tasted each, then judged away.  SEE ALSO: Dogs, ranked You may disagree with these rankings. That's okay! It's subjective. But if you catch yourself feeling angry, please promise us you'll get yourself a packet of Haribo to make yourself feel better. And now: The embarrassing Berries: Berries are aesthetically pleasing, but they do not taste good. In fact, they taste bad — far too sugary with no flavor payoff — and leave a sweater-y film on your teeth. Just put them in a clear jar and leave them there. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Gummi Frogs: Taste like plastic. Impossible to chew. And the frog speaking German on our bag reminded us of Pepe, which is frankly a real bummer. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Mini Rainbow Frogs: Unfortunately, the white marshmallow-y section has ruined what was otherwise a perfectly good gummy. Also, Rainbow Frogs are so small that popping one in your mouth isn't super satisfying. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Tropifruitti: Oh my god, these suck so much! They taste like a hospital smells. Bad! Give these to your enemies. Image: Mashable/Lili SamsThe fine Dinosaurs: Cool shapes, but the flavors are not particularly distinguishable. Said one staffer, "I would never want to eat more than three of these." Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Smurfs: Smurfs are strawberry and raspberry flavored, which are generally great flavors anyway, so it works out fine. They do get stuck in your teeth easily and are maybe too chewy. Smurfs are fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Fizzy Cola: Sadly, Fizzy Cola is inferior to Happy Cola because of whatever lemon-lime business it is attempting. Verdict: fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Alphabet Letters: Fun to spell with, but it's hard to remember anything else about them. Fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams The good Rattle-Snakes: Here, some flavors are clearly better than others. Take it from us: the white and red gummies are bright and fruity without being overly saccharine — a delightful experience. The other ones are a little more ... whatever. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Happy Cherries: A classic fave in a lovely shape. Highly Instagrammable. However, it must be said: Happy Cherries are polarizing. Said one staffer, "They taste like bad breath to me." Surprising! Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Fruit Salad: The way these candies rattle around in the bag is unnerving. The grapefruit ones are the best. Image: Mashable/Lili SamsThe *chef's kiss* Sour S'ghetti: This tart, delicate masterpiece is the perfect candy to eat when you're watching TV alone in bed. Just shovel it into your mouth by the palmful. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Happy Cola: A cola flavored gummy sounds weird, but the flavor here is surprisingly subtle and nice. Good for people who like Coke Icees. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Gold-Bears: These little friends are classic, and the red ones are objectively the best. FYI, Gold-Bears taste even better when they're a little old and a little chewy — or after they've been in the fridge for a while. (You should also try this with Australian-style licorice, by the way.) Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Sour Gold-Bears: The green apple Sour Gold-Bear alone is enough to catapult these guys over their classic counterparts. If you'd like to exfoliate the inside of your mouth, eat a whole bag. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Ginger-Lemon: Very refreshing and not super sweet — like if cough drops tasted good. Gift these to your favorite adult. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Twin Snakes: Two snakes diverge in a distant wood. Just kidding! They stay together forever and become delicious Twin Snakes: one sour, one sweet. The sour doesn't involve a coating of sugar, either — those sneks are tangy and fruity all on their own.  Image: Mashable/Martha TesemaThe #1 best Peaches: Peaches are as close as a gummy can get to an actual slice of peach (which is not very close, but still). Friends, they are so good — sugary on the outside and delightfully gooey on the inside. You will exclaim when you eat them. Image: Mashable/Lili SamsIn conclusion,  .

    By Maher Chmaytelli BAGHDAD (Reuters) - If Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is confirmed dead, he is likely to be succeeded by one of his top two lieutenants, both of whom were Iraqi army officers under late dictator Saddam Hussein. Experts on Islamist groups see no clear successor but regard Iyad al-Obaidi and Ayad al-Jumaili as the leading contenders, though neither would be likely to assume Baghdadi's title of "caliph", or overall commander of Muslims. Russia's defense ministry said last week Baghdadi may have been killed in an air strike in Syria and Interfax news agency quoted a senior Russian parliamentarian on Friday as saying the likelihood that he had been killed was close to 100 percent.

  • How the CIA hacks computers that aren’t even connected to the internet

    Golocal247.com news

    Air-gapped computers are supposed to be ultra-secure PCs that can’t be infected with malware that spreads with the help of the internet. That’s because of these computers, often connected to sensitive machines, aren’t also connected to the internet. You’d think these systems would be impenetrable by remote attacks and would require a hacker to be in the same room with the PC. But, unsurprisingly, the CIA developed tools that can infect air-gapped computers. Wikileaks on Thursday published more than 150 pages of materials that explain how the CIA used USB drives to sneak malware to the air-gapped machines. After all, even these computers need to exchange data, and the only way to do it is using USB drives or external hard drives. A platform called Brutal Kangaroo contains tools that can be used to target computer systems not connected to the internet, Ars Technica explains. Drifting Deadline is a tool installed on a computer of interest. When a USB drive is connected to it, the tool will infect it with malware that would then be passed to the air-gapped computer. These advanced malware versions would be able to infect air-gapped computer immediately after the USB drive is plugged in. Some of them required no user interaction and could be activated by default behaviors in Windows, such as Windows Explorer displaying icons, or the letter corresponding to the thumb drive that was just inserted. Microsoft said it patched some of these vulnerabilities, and they don’t work on any of the supported versions of Windows. The documentation says that the first infection — the deployment of Drifting Deadline — might need manual access to a computer, but Ars argues that intrepid hackers could find ways to deliver the malware to the computer that would be used to transmit it to a USB stick.
