No details on hotel data hack impact

The Westin Dragonara, one of the hotels impacted by the massive Marriot International personal data hack, will not say how many guests were affected. Questions sent to the hotel were directed to the company’s communications department for Europe, with a spokeswoman telling the Times of Malta that an identification process is still under way. “We have not finished identifying duplicate information in the database but we believe it contains information on up to 500 million guests who made a reservation at a Starwood property,” the spokeswoman said, without supplying any specific information on the Westin Dragonara. Marriott International announced on Friday that hackers had illegally accessed its Starwood Hotels brand’s reservation database since 2014, potentially exposing personal information on about 500 million guests. A spokeswoman for the St Julian’s hotel, which forms part of the Starwood brand, had confirmed that all guests that had made reservations at any of the brand’s properties before September 10 “may be impacted”. Apart from seeking information on the number of affected guests, Times of Malta also wanted to know how many people had been contacted since the data...

Do not become inured to the sight of blood - Roberta Metsola

Habitual exposure to anything, however unpleasant it may be, renders one to become accustomed to it, as is the case with casualty personnel and the sight of blood. Our society is now facing the same situation.  We are fast becoming immune to daily revelations of corruption, government handouts to party loyalists, including handing over public land worth millions for peanuts, multiple jobs to the same individuals and an in-your-face ‘we shall because we can’ attitude, which has no respect for any norms and laws. It is an established practice worldwide that ministers and politically exposed persons (PEPs) accept that they must live according to strict codes of conduct, and submit themselves to intrusive and uncomfortable levels of scrutiny. And yet, five years of constant, escalating scandals, of standards slipping so far and so fast that you can’t even see them anymore, have seemingly numbed our sensibilities, so that what was once unacceptable, is now fatalistically shrugged away by far too many. Since Labour took over power, their actions were never casual. They were always casual. The civil service was decapitated the morning after the election, with many permanent secretaries...

Trust in electronic vote counting

Malta’s electoral system is complex and depends on an elaborate vote counting process that usually takes days to declare the winners of an election. So, when both main political parties agreed to introduce an electronic vote-scanning system as from the next European Parliament and local council elections in May 2019, many had hoped the tense few days after the election would become a thing of the past. Election results should be known within six hours of the start of vote counting. However, doubts have now been expressed on how well the Electoral Commission has overseen the project, whereby two international IT companies would provide the e-counting technology and security systems. When the new system was stress-tested, a staggering 40 per cent of the ballot sheets were rejected and had to be scrutinised manually to determine the voting intentions of voters. A second test was conducted following some software changes made by the technology companies. The failure rate of the vote scanners fell but was still considered high, at about 20 per cent. Nationalist Party secretary general Clyde Puli expressed concern on some issues relating to project. He said there were various...

Car sharing fleet sponsors Gozo team

Malta’s new green transport initiative, GoTo, has been announced as an official sponsor of popular Gozo football club, Victoria Hotspurs. With more than 1,000 motorists already registered with GoTo across Malta, the newly-launched initiative offers an increasingly popular, environmentally-friendly alternative to private petrol-fuelled cars. The car-sharing initiative, which is currently rolling out a fleet of 150 electric cars nationwide, provides easy, convenient and green transport for its registered users across the island, as well as designated, strategically-positioned parking spaces at each destination. GoTo’s rapidly-growing success has now led it to become an official sponsor of one of Gozo’s most historic football clubs, Victoria Hotspurs. “Victoria Hotspurs FC is extremely thankful to GoTo Malta for becoming the team’s official sponsor,” Victoria Hotspurs president Anton Tabone said. “I think this may be a first for football in Gozo, to have an international company sponsoring a local football team. It is also a matter of pride for our ambitious club to be associated with such a company. At Victoria Hotspurs FC wish GoTo Malta all the possible success in its...

Twitter CEO defends controversial Myanmar tweets

YANGON, Myanmar--- Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday defended a series of tweets about his recent meditation retreat in Myanmar that were pilloried on his own platform for failing to mention the persecution of Rohingya Muslims. Dorsey's gushing thread on Sunday came after a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation retreat near Mandalay in which he praised the country's food, beauty and its people, whom he said were «full of joy». The comments drew heat online for leaving out any discussion of atrocities committed against Myanmar's Rohingya minority during a military crackdown last year that drove more than 720,000 people into Bangladesh camps.
