BRUSSELS: ‘ EU LEADERS PLANNING TO IMPOSE MORE SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA ‘

#AceWorldNews – BRUSSELS – Nov.14 – The decision on whether to impose more economic sanctions against Russia will likely be made by EU leaders in mid-December, rather than by foreign ministers who are meeting in Brussels on Monday, Reuters quoted diplomats as saying.

The foreign ministers may produce a list of Ukrainian rebel figures and possibly some Russians to be added to the list of personal sanctions already in place, according to an internal paper seen by the news agency.

They will be required to keep in mind “that the main separatist leaders are already listed…and the fact that the targeted separatists could be at some point agents in the implementation of the peace plan.”

‘ US POSTAL SERVICE SAYS EMPLOYEES PERSONAL DATA COULD HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED ‘

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES – Nov.10 – The US Postal Service says employees’ personal data, including Social Security numbers, may have been compromised. Dow Jones reported the total number of staff potentially affected at more than 500,000 CNBC reported.   

In a statement Monday, the USPS said the FBI was leading an investigation. It also said customer credit card data did not appear to be at risk.

“The intrusion is limited in scope and all operations of the Postal Service are functioning normally,” the statement said. “Postal Service transactional revenue systems in post offices as well as on usps.com where customers pay for services with credit and debit cards have not been affected by this incident.”

Customers who contacted the postal service customer care center with an inquiry via telephone or e-mail between Jan. 1, 2014, and Aug. 16, 2014 are also at risk.

The intrusion compromised names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and other information for those customers who may have provided this information, according to the statement.

“At this time, we do not believe that potentially affected customers need to take any action as a result of this incident,” USPS said.
