Prep football star charged in dispute

A Zephyrhills High football standout was charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief after a dispute with his landlord Saturday. Police accused Sean Gray of swinging a 21/2-foot long metal pipe at a man during an argument at a mobile home in the 39200 block of Lizabeth Circle. Gray told deputies he threatened the landlord because the man was damaging the inside of his rental home. At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, Gray starred as a lineman this past season. He recently signed with North Carolina Tech.

  2. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts


    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
