A recently fixed vulnerability in WhatsApp allowed attackers to spread spyware to mobile devices with just a phone call. The attacker exploited a vulnerability known as buffer overflow, a type of exploit that's existed for decades. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.  Earlier this week, it was reported that a vulnerability in Facebook's popular WhatsApp messaging service made it possible for attackers to spread spyware to smartphones via phone calls made through the app.  To d...

Murder victims’ families criticize California’s moratorium on executions

Family members of murder victims whose killers were sentenced to death in California often took solace knowing that one day those prisoners could be executed. But Gov. Gavin Newsom’s March 13 executive order placing a moratorium on carrying out the death penalty has taken away that consolation. Thursday, May 9, some of those survivors spoke out against the moratorium during a news conference in Riverside attended by district attorneys Mike Hestrin of Riverside County and Todd Spitzer of Orange C...

Dodgers’ Ross Stripling, who tipped all his pitches last year, believes he is a mystery again

LOS ANGELES — Ross Stripling began chewing gum on the mound, appropriately, when the Dodgers visited Wrigley Field on April 25. He allowed two hits in the first inning that afternoon, but the Cubs didn’t score. He gave up two more hits without consequence in the second inning. By the third inning, Stripling decided he’d had enough. “I had to spit it out because literally, I couldn’t breathe normal for whatever reason,” he said. “I’d be like” – Stripling paused to make an exaggerated panting soun...

School Resource Officer’s Gun Accidentally Fired During Florida Middle School’s Lunch Period

News from Florida: An experienced deputy accidentally discharged his firearm in a middle school cafeteria, which — thankfully — resulted in zero injuries.

Corey Seager still ‘searching’ for his post-surgery swing

SAN DIEGO — Corey Seager has not been himself this year. That much is obvious. Since he made his big league debut in September 2015, Seager’s offensive production has been remarkably steady. Before hip and elbow surgeries last year, he had only one calendar month during which he hit less than .250 — the last month of 2017 when he was dealing with elbow and back woes (that would keep him off the Dodgers’ roster for the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs). But he finished April this year batting .236 a...

David Moyes claims Man United haven’t improved much since his sacking

Have Man United actually progressed? Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has claimed that the Red Devils have not improved all that much since his sacking just under six years ago. Moyes joined Manchester United from Everton when fellow Scotsman Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire. While Moyes was expected to be the second coming of Ferguson, he was very much the opposite. The former Everton boss soon found himself under pressure and was sacked just eight months into his tenure. His or...

Dodgers’ A.J. Pollock will have surgery on elbow, out indefinitely

SAN FRANCISCO — Dodgers outfielder A.J. Pollock will have surgery on his right elbow on Thursday and be sidelined indefinitely. An examination Tuesday found that the bursa sac in his elbow was the site of the bacterial infection Pollock has been dealing with since last week. But the hardware from his 2016 injury is no longer needed and will be removed during the procedure. “The reason they’re taking out the hardware where at times you just leave it in if it doesn’t bother the athlete – with the ...

As A.J. Pollock slumps, Dodgers find more playing time for Alex Verdugo

SAN FRANCISCO — The numbers mean something. Alex Verdugo has started the past three games (including two in center field) and four of the past five. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged Verdugo’s performance in the first month has forced him to re-assess the rookie outfielder’s playing time. But it does not represent a status change, he said. “It has (evolved),” Roberts said Monday. “Could I have forecast him playing as much as he has right now? Probably not. And that’s a reflection of how ...

Dodgers’ A.J. Pollock has unspecified infection in elbow, likely headed to Injured List

SAN FRANCISCO — A.J. Pollock’s right elbow has a long medical history all its own. It’s going to get longer. Pollock was unavailable to play for the Dodgers on Monday night against the San Francisco Giants due to an infection in that elbow – a condition Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did not share with the media until after Pollock’s absence as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of a one-run loss made it obvious something was wrong.

Caleb Ferguson goes to Dodgers’ Injured List as Rich Hill returns

LOS ANGELES – With Rich Hill ready to come off the Injured List on Sunday, something had to give. It was Caleb Ferguson’s oblique. Ferguson was placed on the IL Sunday, clearing a roster spot, after apparently injuring an oblique muscle in his left side. Ferguson faced three batters in Saturday’s game, failing to retire any of them. He walked two and gave up a single to load the bases in the eighth inning. “He felt something in his left side.

NFL Draft: Possible targets for the Rams on Day 2

After trading out of the draft’s first round Friday, the Rams roll into Day 2 armed with four top-100 picks, the most they’ve had to work with since 2015. Only two teams, the Colts and Patriots, have more draft capital between Rounds 2 and 3. And according to Les Snead, the Rams general manager, there are plenty of the team’s targets still left on the board. “If there weren’t,” Snead said, “I don’t think we would’ve done the trade-back.” So who might those targets be?

MILWAUKEE — When fans buy a ticket for a game at Miller Park, there’s really only one thing on their minds. Will Christian Yelich homer before or after the Sausage Race?

The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the Dodgers. Yelich leads the majors with 13 home runs — one short of the record for home runs before May 1 shared by Alber...
