MOLLY K. HOOPER (Staff Writer at The Hill) HILLARY CLINTON STARTS TAKING SOME RISKS - AND LANDING SOME PUNCHES The Democratic front-runner is taking some risks and is landing some punches against GOP rivals. After months of remaining largely above the partisan fray - and often appearing cautious to a fault - Hillary Rodham Clinton has begun taking more risks and landing some punches against Republicans. The more aggressive posture comes as Clinton has suffered an erosion in her public image, with more potential voters saying they view her unfavorably than at any point since she entered the 2016 race and fewer people saying they find her trustworthy. Clinton's stepped-up tempo has included almost daily attacks on the better-known contenders among the wide Republican field, particularly billionaire front-runner Donald Trump and former Florida governor Jeb Bush.

BRIAN KRALLIS (Cybersecurity Expert with SurMD) HACKING FOR CAUSE: TODAY'S GROWING CYBER SECURITY TREND What do the following data-breach headlines from the past year have in common? The Sony Pictures hack: Everything we know so far; Anonymous hackers release emails ordering bear cubs be killed; Hackers threaten to release names from adultery website; How Latest Snowden Leak Is Headache for White House; How DID hackers steal celebrities' private iCloud photos? Connecting the dots yet? If not, here are a two more headlines to tip you off: Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway - With Me in It and Hacktivists taking aim at Dallas-Fort Worth police departments. Many Answers, But One Scary Trend. No doubt, there are several similarities to these data-breach headlines. The sophistication of these cyber attackers and the lack of an adequate cyberdefense are common themes in these stories. But there is one overriding theme. This new trend: "Hacking for a cause." The reason? The hacker motive for these data breaches is not (primarily) financial gain. No doubt, someone, somewhere, may have made money in the process - especially if a hired hacker was doing the hacking actions for someone else. The past decade of data breaches has been dominated by the conventional wisdom and this public perception: "Follow the money." Specifically, organized bad-guy hacker criminals are looking to rob banks, steal intellectual property, get your social security number, steal credit card numbers or gain your logon credentials to ultimately get to your cash - or better yet, your organization's cash. Why is the motive of the hacker a significant issue? Is "white hat" hacking a trend that's good for cyber security?
