45 minutes ago

Jimmy Kimmel expressed his appreciation on Monday after Sen. Susan Collins said she does not plan to vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act. “Thank you @SenatorCollins for putting people ahead of party,” Kimmel tweeted. “We are all in your debt.” Collins joins Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rand Paul, R-Ky., as Republican “no” votes against the bill that would repeal Obamacare.

Showtime’s Streaming Service May Have Been Hacked, Browsers Used to Mine for Cryptocurrency

1 hour ago

Was Showtime the latest Hollywood juggernaut to get hacked? It looks like that’s the case, after Showtime.com and its instant-streaming site ShowtimeAnytime.com leveraged browsers to “mine” for Monero coins — a Bitcoin knockoff — over the week.

The mining code — first spotted by U.K. tech site The Register  — can take up more than 50 percent of a computer’s processor.
