DallasMorningNews:Jason’s Deli in Texas Data Breach

Have you eaten at one of these Jason’s Deli locations? You might want to check your bank account!

About 2 million card numbers may have been affected from sales at 164 Jason’s Deli locations, including 31 stores in North Texas, the company said in a Thursday release about the data breach.

An investigation revealed RAM-scraping malware on the point-of-sales terminals at some Jason’s Deli locations beginning June 8. The malware was located and disabled, the company said.

Fox Business:US military members receive biggest pay bump since 2010

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.

ZeroHedge:As No One Watched, Trump Pardoned 5 Megabanks For Corruption Charges

The use of the word pardon is technically incorrect. And the signature might not be Trump’s. I didn’t have enough time to read the whole register note.

The short version is that during Christmas week the administration granted waivers the banks were involved in the LIBOR Scandal, in which they colluded to deliberately depress the rate at which they paid out on investments. By suppressing the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) at the beginning of an economic crisis in 2007, the megabanks were able to boost their earnings and to give their customers a false sense of security.

Too big to be legal or what?
