The head of one of the world's top security companies quoted Putin, and it strengthens explosive allegations

In 2009, Eugene Kaspersky, cofounder of one of the world's top security companies, told some of his lieutenants that they should attack rival antivirus-software maker AVG Technologies N.V. by "rubbing them out in the outhouse," one of several previously undisclosed emails shows.
He was quoting from Vladimir Putin's famous threat a decade earlier to pursue Chechen rebels wherever they were: "If we catch them in the toilet, then we will rub them out in the outhouse."
Former employees say that the reprisal Kaspersky was pushing for was to trick AVG's antivirus software into producing false positives — that is, misclassifying clean computer files as infected.
As previously reported by Reuters, the plan involved creating fake virus samples and malware identifications to fool competitors into disabling or deleting important files, thereby creating problems for their customers.

These animations of cities from space reveal a troubling new trend

Astronauts on ISS

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station are snapping photos of Earth at night, and the images are telling a troubling story.
Using the photos, a citizen science project called Cities at Night has discovered that most light-emitting diodes (LEDs) — which are touted for their energy-saving properties — actually make light pollution worse. The changes in some cities are so intense that space station crew members can tell the difference from orbit.
Tech Insider previously reported on Milan, Italy's LED light pollution, and have since received other before-and-after images of major metropolitan cities that have made the switch. We've turned astronauts' photos into animations, below. The results are as astonishing as they are mesmerizing.

'Blood oozed through the soil at grave sites. You could see the pits move, some of them were still alive': The secrets of Ukraine's shameful 'Holocaust of Bullets' killing centre where 1.6million Jews were executed (WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT)

Violence: A Jewish man is kicked to the ground during a pogrom in the Ukrainian city of Lviv in 1941 
Seventy years on from the end of the Second World War the full, shocking scale of the Nazi-inspired Holocaust in Ukraine is finally being revealed - thanks to pioneering work by a French Catholic priest to research the truth of the industrial-scale killing.
Around 2,000 mass graves of Jewish victims have been located where men, women and children were shot and buried by the Germans and their collaborators.
But there maybe up to 6,000 more sites to uncover, with victims of this 'Holocaust of bullets' - so called because unlike in Poland and Germany where gas chambers were used as the means of slaughter - here most were summarily shot and buried nearby.
In many cases, the Jews were ordered to dig pits and then to strip naked before they were mown down by their murderers.
Some were buried in the unmarked plots while still alive.
