July 19, 2016: CLEVELAND, USA:

Chicago-based wealthy industrialist and Founder of Republican Hindu Coalition Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar has emerged as a mega-donor to Donald Trump campaign. Last week, he flew directly from India and met Trump at a mansion in Hamptons.

After meeting the Republican Presidential nominee, Kumar said that he was greatly impressed with Mr. Trump and particularly his tough stand on Pakistan, a country notoriously prominent as a major hub for Islamic terrorism.

 Soon after Kumar donated USD 449, 400 to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,  the maximum amount permissible by an individual donor. Not only that, Kumar announced that his wife will donate the equal amount, thus raising the total to 898,000- called “Double Max’ in fundraising circle. This puts Kumar as one of the biggest financial patrons to the Republican nominee.

Several months ago, Mr. Kumar had  founded the Republican Hindu Coalition.

Later Kumar hosted a breakfast reception for Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the US House of Representatives and a close aide of Trump.

Shalabh Kumar believes that this is just the beginning. He said: “This is just the beginning. This is the seed money.” Kumar plans to donate $2 Millions to Trump’s campaign from his personal kitty.

“That’s just a start. That’s the seed money,” Kumar said.

Kumar applauded Trump for his policies on Pakistan and his views on Muslim profiling. During their meeting, Kumar was especially won over by Trump’s tough words for Pakistan, India’s neighbor and nemesis; and the businessman praised Trump’s views on Muslim profiling.

“The way the Muslim religion is being practiced today — it’s not the religion but the way it is being practiced today — there’s something wrong,” Kumar observed.

“The policy setting is that we need to have a lot of scrutiny. I totally agree with [former Speaker] Newt Gingrich [R-Ga.]: Mosques should be monitored completely, vetting should be taking place. … I am totally for profiling. If you need to profile, what is the fuss?

“He has to do whatever [it takes] and he is the strongest that has come about in the last 45 years. … On national defense, he will be stronger than Reagan,” Kumar added.

According to a news published in US-based The Hill, Trump told Kumar in their meeting that Pakistan cannot be trusted as a U.S. ally, and he talked about how Osama bin Laden was housed on Pakistani soil when he was found and killed by U.S. forces.

Trump impressed Kumar further by telling him he wanted to strengthen the U.S.-India relationship and improve trade between the countries to counteract the rise of China.

“He has to do whatever [it takes] and he is the strongest that has come about in the last 45 years. On national defence, he will be stronger than Reagan (former president Ronald Wilson Reagan),” Kumar said.

Kumar owns AVG Advanced Technologies that manufactures electronic products. He thinks that the 21 century belongs to India and USA.

Geert Wilders – a prominent Dutch Parliamentarian and a right wing activist had all the praise for Shalabh Kumar.

Amid growing crypto-jacking episodes, a North Korean hacking group called Lazarus has stolen cryptocurrencies worth more than half a billion dollars.

According to The Next Web that cited findings from the annual report of cybersecurity vendor Group-IB late on Friday, Lazarus was behind 14 hacking attacks on cryptocurrent exchanges since January 2017 — stealing $571 million.

Lazarus is a hacking group which has been linked to a string of attacks against everything from banks to government agencies across the world.

Hackers targeted cryptocurrency exchanges with spear phishing, social engineering, and malware.

“Spear phishing remains the major vector of attack on corporate networks. For instance, fraudsters deliver malware under the cover of CV spam [with an attachment] that has a malware embedded in the document,” the findings showed.

Group-IB expects the number of targeted attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges to rise, and not just the ones from Lazarus.

Nearly 10 per cent of the total funds raised by Initial Coin Offering (ICO) platforms over the past year and a half have been stolen.

According to the report, large phishing groups are capable of stealing $1 million a month.

Fraudsters are even building fake websites using stolen cryptocurrency project descriptions and plagiarized white papers.

“Fraudulent phishing-schemes involving crypto-brands will only get more complex as well as cybercriminals’ level of preparation for phishing attacks,” the group warned.

Security researchers have claimed that North Korea-based advanced persistent threat (APT) groups are increasingly attacking financial institutions and Bitcoin exchanges.

There were on average five new threat samples every second that resulted in a massive 629 per cent growth in cryptojacking and other cryptocurrency mining malware in the first quarter of 2018.

The coin miner malware grew a stunning 629 per cent to 2.9 million in the first quarter of 2018, from around 400,000 total known samples in Q4 2017, said a recent report from global cyber security firm McAfee.
