Runner's foot impaled by nail purposely placed on trail, 40 total found in park

SYLVA, N.C. — The 1,100-acre Pinnacle Park west of Asheville remains closed after a runner's foot was impaled by a nail purposely placed on a popular trail that leads to the Black Rock Summit.

Brian Barwatt, an engineer with the Department of Transportation, and the race director of the Assault on Black Rock, a trail race in Pinnacle Park in March, was at the park Monday with the Sylva police chief Davis Woodard, town maintenance workers and other volunteers scouting out more nails.

Since Saturday, 40 nails hammered into tree roots and logs have been found, Barwatt said.

"Someone hammered 4-inch long galvanized nails and left them sticking out a half- to 1 inch, and at an angle so they’re like spikes.”

One person was hurt and another stepped on a nail that went through his shoe but didn’t hurt his foot.

Adjusting his position and looking out, Cassian sees what, at first, he swears must be a mirage. A disheveled mirage with blood tracking down her arms.

"Jyn?" he rasps.

Here’s a morsel of what I learned about Web security at this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco. It’s just another tale of the good, the bad, and the ugly 1.Security in Windows 10 is better than any version before it. That’s because unlike previous versions which had user customizable settings to control how your PC received updates and patches, updates in Windows 10 are by default automatic. Ostensibly this means that Microsoft is staying one step ahead of malware hackers. There’s just one problem with this assumption. Unlike the dozens and dozens of anti-malware/virus software companies which update their malware definitions 24/7, Microsoft offers its updates just once a month on its Patch Tuesday which means any Windows 10 is vulnerable to new malware for possibly a month in between. So installing third party anti-malware/virus software is probably still advisable. 2.Nothing is necessarily safe on the Web even if you have anti-malware installed because the hackers are changing their sinister codes virtually every few seconds. You read that right: every few seconds in a lousy game of digital whack-a-mole. And the bad guys are ever finding new ways to infect your system. 3. Then there’s the increasing rise of … Read More »

How to Protect Your WordPress Sites

Posted by Susan Bradley

Recently a WordPress attack led to defaced web sites. WordPress is an easy web platform to use and one used in many attacks. Here’s why — and what you can do to protect a WordPress site. Why WordPress Is Attacked WordPress is a very powerful platform. It makes it easy for novices and non web developers to build their own customizable web sites that are easily updated and very social. But that ease of use can also mean ease of being used in attacks. The core of WordPress is augmented by any number of third party plug ins and thus to patch and maintain WordPress sites can be pretty tricky. Recently, several security issues caused many sites to be defaced. The update, released on January 26th, fixed several issues the worst of which caused an “unauthenticated privilege escalation vulnerability was discovered in a REST API endpoint.” The bottom line? Attackers could take control of a site and post whatever content they wanted. As soon as the patch was released, sites came under attack. So why didn’t all of us running WordPress sites immediately update? Well, for the same reason we don’t immediately update Windows patches – we fear new releases will … Read More »

Watch for a Possible Flash Update

Posted by Susan Bradley

All other Microsoft updates are still on hold at this time, but we may see some non security preview updates for next month. While Microsoft isn’t saying anything public at this time, several reputable sources have informed me that Microsoft will release the overdue Adobe flash update for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. I will recommend that you go ahead and install this as soon as possible due to the potential for web based attacks from Flash. While Chrome is deemphasizing Chrome in recent browser releases as noted in the Chrome blog, Windows 10 and 8.1 still have flash as part of the operating system. In the creators release expected this spring, Flash will become of less importance in the operating system. Until then we need to update our browsers with any Flash update as soon as we can. It’s unclear if we’ll see any other non security preview updates for the Windows operating system on Tuesday. If you do I’ll recommend you do not install these updates at this time. Microsoft is still not releasing any security updates that we expected in February and will wait until March to do so. Keep in mind … Read More »

:: This story takes place at the beginning of events in “Connecting Family,” from the viewpoint of the person Elisabeth Finn called for help. ::

Liborio hung up the phone, wearing a deep frown. “Oly, we need to get in touch with the boss, right away.”

Olypmia eyed the number still visible on his cell phone screen and checked her watch. “He's not exactly easy to reach at the moment. Is there trouble in Mercedes?”

“Different trouble, in the Maldives,” Leo corrected. “Doctor Finn actually asked me to come bodyguard. She wants to talk the others into joining in, at least for a while.”
