Hackers hijacked nearly half of the NFL’s Twitter accounts, as well as ESPN and UFC

NFL logo

The social media accounts of almost half of the teams in the National Football League, as well as the official NFL account, were hacked, the NFL said in a statement today. Some ESPN social media accounts were also “briefly compromised,” ESPN said today in a statement to The Verge.

The NFL accounts were hacked on Sunday and Monday. Many of the hacked NFL tweets promoted the hacker group OurMine, announcing that the hacking collective is “back” and that “everything is hackable.” OurMine has, perhaps predictably, taken responsibility for the hacks, according to the BBC. OurMine also took credit for hacking ESPN’s accounts on Tuesday afternoon.

NFL reporter Dov Kleiman collected many screenshots of the hacked pages in this Twitter thread.

Apple is limiting China travel and has closed one retail store due to coronavirus outbreak

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

Apple CEO Tim Cook said on Tuesday that the company began limiting employee travel to China last week amid the coronavirus outbreak, and that Apple has closed one store in mainland China and reduced operating hours for other retail locations.

The announcement is yet more evidence that the virus is affecting the tech industry’s presence in one of its most vital markets, both for sales and manufacturing operations. Numerous other tech companies, including Facebook and LG, are also restricting employee travel to only business critical operations.

Foxconn, one of Apple’s lead supplier, said on Tuesday it did not expect the coronavirus to affect its manufacturing timelines. Yet it was not clear at the time whether Apple had been…

NASA’s next big space observatory will likely miss its target launch date — again

NASA’s next big space observatory — the James Webb Space Telescope — probably won’t launch in March 2021, potentially creating added costs for the long-delayed and over-budget program. Unforeseen technical problems are prolonging the process of finishing up the telescope, making it increasingly likely that the spacecraft will have to launch at a later date.

The grim news is detailed in the latest report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), which performs audits of federally run programs. The GAO, which has been keeping a watchful eye on the telescope’s development for years, claims that there is only a 12 percent chance the agency will meet its March 2021 goal, thanks to a recent analysis done in October by those working on…

Google aims to unify its workplace tools and messaging apps into one service

Google is working on another communications application, this one for workplaces, that will combine several different platforms it already operates, according to a new report from The Information. This new product is designed to unify different Google services the company sells to businesses, including parts of its G Suite like corporate-grade Gmail and Google Drive.

It would also bundle together the various, somewhat confusing variants of Hangouts. Once a consumer-focused communications platform, Hangouts is now geared toward enterprise customers. It has since been split into Hangouts Meet, a video chat app, and Hangouts Chat, a real-time text-based successor to Gchat. But that means Google may be introducing yet another communications…

US colleges are trying to install location tracking apps on students’ phones

Barely over a year ago, we pointed out how dystopian it seemed when Chinese schools added “smart uniforms” to track their students’ attendance. But US colleges are already testing out a similar tactic with a location tracking app, which students are now apparently expected to install on their phones.

I say “apparently” because there’s some confusion over whether the schools are actually forcing this on their students. The Kansas City Star reported that at the University of Missouri, new students “won’t be given a choice” of whether to install the SpotterEDU app, which uses Apple’s iBeacons to broadcast a Bluetooth signal that can help the phone figure out whether a student is actually in a room.

But a university spokesperson told Campus…
