From: <afcc@rsa.com>

Dear Sirs:

RSA , an anti-fraud and security company, is under contract to assist

Royal Bank of Canada and its related entities (“RBC”) – A leading

Canadian bank – in preventing or terminating online activity that

targets RBC’s clients as potential fraud victims.

RSA has been made aware that*you appear to be providing Internet

Services to a fraudulent Web site*, which is part of a “phishing scam”*.

This activity violatesRBC’s copyright, trademark and other intellectual

property rights and may violate the criminal laws ofCanada, the United

States and other nations.

E-mail messages have been broadly distributed to individuals by a person

or entity pretending to beRBC. These e-mails useRBC’s name and identity

(including trademarks) without authorization. The e-mails request

recipients to verify and submit sensitive details related to theirRBC

accounts.

*Within the fraudulent e-mail message, there is a link that leads the

recipients to a fraudulent website displaying****RBC’s**copyrighted

materials and trademarks. The fraudulent website is located at the

following URL address

*_*http://let.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/www1.royalbank.com/index.html*_***to

which you provide services and which is under your control.*

The fraudulent website not only represents a misuse ofRBC’s intellectual

property; its purpose is to improperly obtain personal information ofRBC

customers in order to fraudulently access their bank accounts. The

people behind those websites typically perpetrate identity-theft related

activities, such as using customer’s credit cards or bank accounts

without authorization. In addition, since the vast majority of all of

the e-mails are not being sent to actualRBC customers, the actions serve

to damage the reputation and image of RBC.

*Please take all necessary steps to immediately shut down the fraudulent

website, terminate its availability to the Internet and discontinue

the****transmission of any e-mails associated with this website.*

*We understand that you may not be aware of this improper use of your

services and we appreciate your cooperation. We specifically would ask

that you also take the following actions:*

• Please provide us with a tar/zip file of the source code for this

site, so that we may analyze it to help prevent further attacks.

• If any customer data has been captured that is stored on your systems

or equipment, please send us that data so that the customers to whom

that data relates can be notified and take steps to protect their credit.

• Please provide a copy of any records you maintain that indicate the

name, contact information, method of payment or similar information that

may be useful in helping learn the identity and location of the customer

for whom the website has been operated.

Thank you for your cooperation to prevent and terminate this fraudulent

activity.

 

Sincerely,

RSA Anti Fraud Command Center

Unglaublicher Wahlerfolg: Piratenpartei zieht mit 8,9% in Berliner Abgeordnetenhaus ein
September 19, 2011, 2:09 am

via netzpolitik

Es hatte sich ja schon irgendwie angedeutet, aber dass es nun tatsächlich so kam und sie im Endspurt nochmal so stark zugelegt haben, ist doch eine ziemliche Sensation:Mit unglaublichen 8,9% ziehen die Berliner PIRATEN im ersten Anlauf ins Abgeordnetenhaus ein. 15 Sitze konnten sie damit gewinnen und zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte der Partei weltweit überhaupt ein Landesparlament entern. Hier die Liste aller gewählten Abgeordneten.

Das vorläufige, amtliche Endergebnis gibt es bei der Landeswahlleiterin. Demnach kommt die SPD bisher auf 28,3% (-2,5%), die CDU auf 23,4% (+2,1%), die GRÜNEN auf 17,6% (+4,5%), die LINKE auf 11,7% (-1,7%) und die PIRATEN auf 8,9%. Die FDP verpasst mit nur 1,8% (-5,8%) den Wiedereinzug ins Parlament.

 


(Grafik: Screenshot Wahlmonitor tagesschau)Die INFO GmbH hatte mit ihren Umfragewerten von 9% eine sehr genaue Schätzung abgegeben, während Infratest dimap (5,5%) und Forschungsgruppe Wahlen (6,5%) das Phänomen wohl nicht richtig einschätzen konnten. Neben dem Landesparlament haben die PIRATEN im Übrigen auch in alle Bezirksverordnetenversammlungen Einzug gehalten – und zwar gleich mit so vielen Kandidaten, dass jetzt wegen Überschneidungen mit dem Abgeordnetenhaus sogar das Personal knapp werden könnte.

Beim RBB gibt es viele Informationen rund um die Wahl. Die Tagesschau hat die Ergebnisse schön dargestellt. In Sachen Open Data hat die Wahlleiterbehörde einigen Nachholbedarf. So wurden die Ergebnisse offenbar nicht z.B. als CSV zum Download, sondern lediglich in aggregierter Form und in selbst aufbereiteten Grafiken angeboten.

In den nächsten Tagen wird es sicher viele spannende Analysen, Kommentare und vieles mehr geben. Für den Moment bleibt daher nicht mehr zu sagen als: Herzlichen Glückwunsch und viel Spaß bei der wohlverdienten Wahlparty! 😉
