Hilton says some payment systems hit by malware
(Reuters) - Hotel chain operator Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc said on Tuesday it identified unauthorized malware in some payment systems that targeted payment card information.

FBI has lead in probe of 1.2 billion stolen Web credentials: documents
By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - A hacker who once advertised having access to user account information for websites like Facebook and Twitter has been linked through a Russian email address to the theft of a record 1.2 billion Internet credentials, the FBI said in court documents. The papers, made public last week by a federal court in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, provide a window into the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe of what would amount to the largest collection of stolen user names and passwords. The court papers were filed in support of a search warrant the FBI sought in December 2014 and that was executed a month later related to email records.

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators are delaying rules that would require electric and hybrid cars to alert sight-impaired pedestrians and bicyclists until at least mid-March, according to a recent government filing. The decision is the latest setback for a government plan that has been in the works since 2013 to require ?quiet cars? - vehicles that operate at low speeds without an internal combustion engine running - to add new audio alerts at low speeds. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates the odds of a hybrid vehicle being involved in a pedestrian crash are 19 percent higher compared with a traditional gas-powered vehicle.

Preliminary government statistics, released during a Thanksgiving holiday week known for heavy traffic congestion, showed deaths rising to 16,225 in the January-June period at a rate more than double an increase in overall driving spawned by falling gasoline prices and a growing economy.

Exclusive: EMC to keep majority stake in Virtustream - sources
EMC Corp, in a bid to boost shareholder support for its sale to Dell Inc, will retain a majority stake in Virtustream and abandon a plan to place the loss-making cloud services provider in a joint venture with VMware Inc, people familiar with the matter said. The move is aimed at lifting VMware's shares, which have lost about a quarter of their value since Dell's $60 billion deal to buy EMC was announced on Oct. 12. The decline puts the acquisition at risk because Dell was set to pay EMC shareholders $24.05 per share in cash and a special stock that tracks the common shares of VMware.
