U.S. nuclear site in South Carolina on lockdown after potential security threat

US | Mon Aug 17, 2015 5:31pm EDT

The U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site in South Carolina is on lockdown and experiencing a "potential security event," according to a statement from the nuclear facility and an internal memo sent to workers.

"Site barricades are currently closed to incoming traffic," according to a Facebook post, also issued by the DoE. "There is no indication of a consequence beyond the Savannah River Site boundaries."

The Savannah River Site has placed its H Area on a "phase II" security alert, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters. The H Area is where highly enriched uranium is blended down to produce low enriched uranium for use in commercial reactors.

The exact nature of the threat was unclear.

"All personnel should remain in their offices or labs and standby for further instructions via the Site public address system or instruction via email," the memo said.

The government-run site was constructed in the 1950s to produce basic materials for nuclear weapons, according to a DoE website, and produced one third of U.S. weapons grade plutonium from 1953 to 1988.

Two of the Savannah River Site's 5 reactors have been deactivated. It now blends down enriched uranium for use in commercial reactors. It also is used to store spent fuel. About 36 million gallons of radioactive liquid are stored there in 49 underground tanks.

IRS Admits Breach May Have Compromised Over 300,000 Taxpayer Accounts 

1 Share
The Internal Revenue Service admitted Monday that an additional 220,000 taxpayer accounts were potentially compromised by a computer database breach that occurred earlier this year, bringing the total of those affected to almost three times its original estimate.
According to the Wall Street Journalthe government agency said a review turned up 220,000 additional U.S. households “where there were instances of possible or potential access” to prior year tax returns and 170,000 instances of “suspected attempts that failed to clear the authentication processes.”
The IRS originally claimed that 114,000 taxpayer accounts were compromised in the breach in addition to 111,000 unsuccessful attempts.
The announcement Monday indicates that the number of those that had information stolen now stands at 334,000, nearly three times the IRS’ original estimate of 114,000.
Hackers between February and the middle of May used stolen Social Security numbers and other personal data to breach IRS accounts and obtain tax return information from prior years.
The computer breaches occurred in an online service called “Get Transcript,” an application that helps taxpayers get their return information from prior years. It has since been shut down.
The IRS plans to notify the taxpayers potentially affected as soon as possible and provide them with support, such as free credit protection.
“The IRS takes the security of taxpayer data extremely seriously, and we are working to continue to strengthen security for ‘Get Transcript,’ including by enhancing taxpayer-identity authentication protocols,” the agency explained.
The news comes just over a month after the Office of Personnel Management admitted that Chinese-origin cyber attacks on its computer networks compromised the personal data of 22.1 million Americans.
Moreover, defense officials said earlier this month that Russia launched a “sophisticated cyber attack” on the Pentagon’s unclassified email system used by the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the end of July. The breach affected approximately 4,000 military and civilian employees, including Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey.

TSA Spent $160 Million On Failed Body Scanners, ‘Naked’ X-Rays 

1 Share
The Transportation Security Administration spent $160 million on body scanners that have largely failed to detect airport security threats.
Politico reported that the government agency paid $120 million for the body scanners currently in place at airport checkpoints across the country in addition to another $40 million on the “naked” X-ray scanners removed from airports two years ago amid health and privacy concerns.
The TSA, which recently disclosed the costs to members of Congress probing the agency, on average spent over $150,000 per unit of body imaging technology since it first began purchasing the scanners in 2008.
The acting TSA head was reassigned in June after a security audit revealed that the agency’s devices failed to detect fake weapons and explosives 96 percent of the time in secret tests.
Members of Congress from both parties who have been probing the government agency are concerned with the costly but largely insufficient TSA body imaging equipment.
Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) said that the scanners are so unsuccessful–“These things weren’t even catching metal,” he warned–that they should be preceded by metal detectors.
“If you really want to keep using those, and I’m not saying we shouldn’t, at a minimum we should put a metal detector on the other side,” Johnson said. “Why not go through two? You’ve just gotta use common sense.”
Ranking member of House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.) described himself as “troubled about their capability to detect and prevent dangerous materials from passing through security checkpoints.”
Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.), the ranking member of Senate Homeland Security Committee, suggested that the agency might be better trying to find ways beyond technology to overhaul its security measures.
“In a situation like this, if one bad person gets through and they have a bomb or a weapon, it could be a terrible tragedy for hundreds of people,” Carper explained. “So I think we have an obligation to look around the world and to look at technology here and to find better ways, on an ongoing basis, to protect our safety and security.”
The TSA in a statement voiced its commitment “to improve screening effectiveness, including new training for all TSA officers, improvements in alarm resolution procedures, and, in partnership with private sector partners, a range of measures to increase detection standards of our screening equipment.”
The government agency has spent tens of millions of dollars on other types of failed equipment.

Half of Younger Brits Don’t Identify as ‘Completely Heterosexual’ 

1 Share
A new poll found over half of younger Britons said they were not 100% heterosexual when asked to rank their sexual orientation on a scale.
In a poll conducted by YouGov, 1,632 British adults were asked place themselves on the Kinsey scale, which measures sexual orientation on a range from 0 (completely heterosexual) to 6 (completely homosexual). Out of the general public some 72% chose 0; but in the 18 to 24 age range, only 46% said they were completely heterosexual.
While only 2% of respondents identified themselves as bisexual, it appears that many acknowledge some sexual fluidity outside such labels. Six in 10 respondents overall and 74% in the 18 to 24 range agreed that “sexuality is a scale—it is possible to be somewhere near the middle.”
