US agency responsible for Trump's secure communication suffered data breach

The U.S. defense agency responsible for secure White House communications said Social Security numbers and other personal data in its network may have been compromised, according to a letter seen by Reuters on Thursday that was sent to individuals whose data may have been taken.

The letter, dated Feb. 11, 2020, says that between May and July 2019, personal data may have been compromised “in a data breach” on a system hosted by the Defense Information Systems Agency.

The White House did not immediately answer a request for comment and the letter provided few further details. For example, it did not indicate what specific part of DISA’s network had been breached or identify which other individuals may have had their data compromised.

The Defense Information Systems Agency, which calls itself a combat support agency of the Defense Department on its website, employs 8,000 military and civilian employees.

The agency says it “provides direct telecommunications and IT support to the president, vice president, their staff, and the U.S. Secret Service.”

The site also says the agency provides “direct support” to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and senior members of the U.S. armed forces. Its field offices support U.S. military commanders abroad.

The agency’s letter said that it had no evidence any personal data possibly taken was misused but that it was required to notify individuals who may have had data taken.

Asia stocks set to rise as Wall Street shrugs off virus fears and touches record highs

Meanwhile, stocks in Australia rose in early trade, with the S&P/ASX 200 gaining about 0.4%.

Shares on Japanese conglomerate Softbank Group will be watched on Wednesday after a judge stateside approved a merger between T-Mobile and Sprint . Softbank is a majority shareholder of Sprint.

Futures pointed to gains for Japanese stocks at the open, as markets returned from a Tuesday holiday. The Nikkei futures contract in Chicago was at 23,925 while its counterpart in Osaka was at 23,690. That compared against the Nikkei 225’s last close at 23,685.98.

Stocks in Asia were set to trade higher on Wednesday following overnight momentum from Wall Street as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite touched fresh record closing highs.

Overnight on Wall Street, the S&P 500 closed 0.2% higher at 3,357.75 while the Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.1% to end its trading day stateside at 9,638.94. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose as much as 138 points before closing flat at 29,276.34.

The moves came after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank is “closely monitoring” the situation surrounding the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and its potential impact to China and the global economy, though he noted that it is “too early to say” how the disease could hit the U.S. economy.

Powell’s comments come as investors continue to grapple with uncertainty surrounding the virus that has already taken more than 1,000 lives, with most of them coming from China, where the outbreak was first reported.

“Based on (Powell’s) comments, it is clear that the Fed is unfazed because China has taken strong measures to contain the virus and provide liquidity. There are very few cases in the US and so far, the impact on the US economy is limited,” Kathy Lien, managing director of foreign exchange strategy at BK Asset Management, wrote in a note dated Feb. 11.

Lien warned, however, that “many factories supplying US business in China remain shut and flights to China remain canceled.”

The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of its peers, was last at 98.749 after declining from levels above 98.8 seen earlier.

The Japanese yen traded at 109.81 against the dollar after seeing levels around 109.9 yesterday. The Australian dollar was at $0.6715 after spiking to levels above $0.672 yesterday.

Law enforcement officials fired shots at a vehicle that breached two security checkpoints Friday at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, police said.

Two people were taken into custody after the incident at the Palm Beach resort, which Trump is scheduled to visit later Friday, police said.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that officers from the Florida Highway Patrol had been pursuing a black SUV that was headed toward checkpoints at Mar-a-Lago at around 11:40 a.m. ET.

“The SUV breached both security check points heading towards the main entrance,” the sheriff’s office said.

“Officials … discharged their firearms at the vehicle.”

The SUV then fled, while being chased by the highway patrol and by a sheriff’s office helicopter.

The vehicle was later located, and two people were taken into custody.

Officials have scheduled a news conference for 3 p.m. ET.

How the coronavirus outbreak in China could hit manufacturing

How the coronavirus outbreak in China could hit manufacturing

People wait in a queue to buy masks at a pharmacy in Hong Kong on January 30, 2020, as a preventative measure after a virus outbreak which began in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

Expect supply disruptions as China takes measures to contain an ongoing coronavirus outbreak, says REYL Singapore’s Daryl Liew.

“The sharp action taken by the Chinese government to basically delay workers going back to work is definitely going to cause some supply disruptions,” Liew, who is chief investment officer at REYL Singapore, told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on Thursday.

With the virus infecting at least 7,700 and killing 170 in China, authorities have taken measures to curb the disease’s spread. At least three provinces have declared that businesses, other than some essential industries, are barred from resuming work before Feb. 10. In Hubei province, where the majority of cases have been found, resumption of local business has been delayed till at least Feb. 14.

A “big question mark” remains over how long the disruptions could last, Liew said, as it depends on whether the situation can be contained.

That comes as manufacturing numbers were showing “some normalization,” he added.

“It’s a bit of a lagging indicator but the December ISM numbers have all been broadly positive, especially for Asian economies … which suggest essentially that global trade is normalizing. It’s not bouncing back significantly but it is rebounding,” Liew said, adding that that has translated to better manufacturing numbers.

“The current virus … and the extended shutdown in China will definitely put a crimp to that,” Liew said.

More US service members diagnosed with brain injury after Iran missile attack

More US service members diagnosed with brain injury after Iran missile attack

A picture taken on January 13, 2020 during a press tour organised by the US-led coalition fighting the remnants of the Islamic State group, shows a view of the damage at Ain al-Asad military airbase housing US and other foreign troops in the western Iraqi province of Anbar.

A total of 50 U.S. service members suffered traumatic brain injury from this month’s Iranian missile attack on Iraqi bases hosting American troops, the Pentagon said Tuesday.

Of those TBI cases, which can include concussions, 31 were treated in Iraq and have returned to duty, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Campbell said in a statement.

Last week, the Pentagon said there were 34 service members diagnosed with concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

Of the 16 new diagnosed cases, 15 service members have returned to duty in Iraq, Campbell said.

Iran launched ballistic missiles at two bases in Iraq housing American troops on Jan. 8 local time. The strike was in retaliation for the U.S. killing of Iran’s Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was commander of its elite Quds Force, in a drone attack outside Baghdad’s airport less than a week before.

No one was killed in Iran’s strikes, and a day after targeting U.S. forces, President Donald Trump said that no one was hurt or killed.

Chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman has said that a lot of TBI symptoms are late developing and manifest themselves over a period of time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says on its website that some symptoms of concussions and other traumatic brain injury can appear right away, but other symptoms may not be noticed for days or months after the injury.

One of those new cases involved a service member transported to Germany for further evaluation and treatment, bringing the total taken there to 18. That person had been taken to Germany “for other health reasons and has since been diagnosed with a TBI,” Campbell said.

Last week, another Pentagon spokesman said that eight U.S. service members who were sent to Germany were then taken to the United States.

Campbell’s statement Tuesday said that there was no information as to whether anyone else has returned to the U.S.

A service member that had been taken to Kuwait for treatment has since returned to duty, Campbell said.

Hours after Iran launched missiles against U.S. forces, Iran’s armed forces shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane that departed from Tehran’s airport, in an incident that Iranian officials blamed on “human error” and which Iran’s president has called an “unforgivable mistake.”

All 176 people aboard Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 were killed, including many Iranians and Canadians.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan again calls for Trump to mediate on Kashmir dispute

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan once again called for U.S. President Donald Trump and the United Nations to play mediator between his country and neighbor India over disputed territory in Kashmir.

Speaking to CNBC’s Hadley Gamble, Khan claimed India has been taken over by “extremist ideology” that could potentially spill over into armed conflict between the two nuclear rivals.

“Kashmir is, you know, it’s a far more serious problem than people realize, (than) the world realizes. The problem is that India has been taken over by an extremist ideology, which is called Hindutva or the RSS,” he said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Khan was referring to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist group affiliated with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.

“This is serious because there are two nuclear-armed countries,” Khan said. “That’s why I want President Trump, head of the most powerful country in the world — he should intervene right now. United Nations, or President Trump through the U.N. at least.”

Last year, fresh off a landslide re-election victory in Parliament, Modi’s government revoked the state of Jammu & Kashmir’s special status that allowed it to make its own laws. As a result, people from outside the state can potentially move in to settle there, buy land, and take government jobs or scholarships.

US service members treated for concussions after Iranian missile strikes

Several U.S. service members were treated for concussions after Iran launched ballistic missiles earlier this month in Iraq in retaliation for the U.S. killing of a top Iranian commander, the Pentagon said Thursday. “While no U.S. service members were killed in the Jan. 8 Iranian attack … several were treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are still being assessed,” Capt.

US service members treated for concussions after Iranian missile strikes

A picture taken on January 13, 2020 during a press tour organised by the US-led coalition fighting the remnants of the Islamic State group, shows a view of the damage at Ain al-Asad military airbase housing US and other foreign troops in the western Iraqi province of Anbar.

Several U.S. service members were treated for concussions after Iran launched ballistic missiles earlier this month in Iraq in retaliation for the U.S. killing of a top Iranian commander, the Pentagon said Thursday.

“While no U.S. service members were killed in the Jan. 8 Iranian attack … several were treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are still being assessed,” Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, said in a statement.

“All personnel in the vicinity of a blast are screened for traumatic brain injury, and if deemed appropriate are transported to a higher level of care,” Urban said.

In the days after the attack, 11 service members have been transported to two hospitals, in Germany and Kuwait, for follow-up screening, Urban said.

He said that the service members were expected to return to Iraq following screening.

The day after the missile strikes, President Donald Trump said that no American or Iraqi lives were lost because of precautions that had been taken, the dispersal of forces “and an early warning system that worked very well.” The president also said then that no Americans were harmed.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that while some symptoms of traumatic brain injury, which include concussions, can appear right away, others may not be noticed for days or months after the injury.

Iran launched ballistic missiles against two bases in Iraq that house U.S. forces, including the Ain al-Asad base about 110 miles northwest of Baghdad, on Jan. 8 as retaliation for a drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s secretive Quds Force, and another man who is said to be the deputy of militias in Iraq.

Hours after the ballistic missile launch in Iraq, Iran’s military unintentionally shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet that had taken off from Tehran’s airport.

All 176 people aboard Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 were killed, including many Iranians and Canadians.

Iranian officials blamed “human error,” and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has called it a “disastrous mistake.”

Initially, Iranian officials soon said that mechanical failure was suspected. Iran’s foreign minister this week acknowledged that people “were lied to” for days.

The shootdown sparked protests in Iran.

Iran’s judiciary said this week that an undisclosed number of suspects involved in the accidental downing of the plane had been arrested.
