Lockheed Martin is target of cyberattack

WASHINGTON

Lockheed is target of Cyberattack

The Defense Department said Sunday that it does not expect "any adverse effect" on the department's weapons programs as a result of a recent breach of Lockheed Martin's computer network. "Impact to DOD is minimal," Lt. Col. April Cunningham, a department spokeswoman, said in an e-mail. The breach was acknowledged Saturday by the contracting giant, based in Bethesda, Md. The company said that its systems "remain secure" and that "no customer, program or employee personal data has been compromised." Lockheed officials have not publicly said who they believe launched the attack.

Obama settles on envoy for Russia

President Barack Obama's pick for the next U.S. ambassador to Moscow is a trusted adviser who helped engineer the "reset" in U.S.-Russia relations three years ago, the Washington Post reported Sunday, citing an unnamed administration official. The official said Michael McFaul, 47, will be nominated for the key diplomatic post, replacing John Beyrle, who has held the job since July 2008. If confirmed by the Senate, McFaul would be the first nondiplomat in three decades to serve as the chief U.S. representative in Moscow.

NEW YORK

Lawmaker blames hacker for photo

A lewd photograph of a crotch sent from the Twitter account of U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner is just "a distraction" perpetrated by a hacker, his spokesman said Sunday. Dave Arnold told the Associated Press in an e-mail that the tweet, directed at a woman, was "a distraction" from the married New York Democrat's "important work representing his constituents." The photo showed a man's bulging underpants. It first was reported Saturday by BigGovernment.com, a website run by conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart. The site said the photo was tweeted to a Seattle woman.

Shuttle astronauts are heading home

The astronauts on NASA's next-to-last shuttle flight floated out of the International Space Station on Sunday and then closed the hatch behind them, after one final round of warm wishes and embraces. All that remained was space shuttle Endeavour's undocking late Sunday and its two-day trip home. Shuttle commander Mark Kelly said the 1½ weeks of joint flight went well.

FRANCE

Minister quits over rape allegations

A minister accused of sexually assaulting two women he once worked with resigned Sunday in an apparent bid to spare the French government the kind of notoriety the opposition has faced since its leading man, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was charged with attempting to rape a Manhattan hotel maid. A preliminary investigation was opened last week against George Tron, who served as a junior civil service minister, after two women alleged that he had attacked them between 2007 and 2010.

Elsewhere

Nepal: Nepal's political parties averted a crisis Sunday by reaching a last-minute deal that extended the deadline for a new constitution. Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal agreed to step down as part of the deal.

Malta: The Mediterranean island became the last remaining European Union nation to vote in favor of legalizing divorce.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — Nikita Kucherov is piling up the goals. Steven Stamkos is an assist machine. They make for an impressive pairing in a league that favors scoring pairs over the more traditional three-player scoring lines.

    Bucs

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Hard to believe, but this was only the second time in their history that the Bucs played a regular-season game in Buffalo. After Sunday loss, they wouldn't mind going another 40 years without playing here again.

    Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter, seen during the first half, had a heck of a day calling plays, Tom Jones writes. [LOREN ELLIOTT   |   Times]
