Now your car is spying on you – Security fears spark crackdown on Chinese tech – Attackers Use Microsoft Office Vulnerabilities to Spread Malware

 

Craig Peterson: We have a few things to talk about. Did you hear about Apple with their new HomePod. You know we talked about this before, their speaker. Is it worth it? Has it been worth the wait? We’re definitely going to talk about it, compare with the Amazon Echo, the Google Home and Sonos as well. Hey great news, your car is now officially spying on you. And we’ve got some major security fears as the Chinese technology vendors are apparently using those computers that we’ve been buying, and the State Department has been spying and the FBI and the NSA using them to spy on us. Twitter started this week. I have a tweet here from Senator John Cornyn that we’ll discuss. But all about Russian election meddling with Twitter. There’s so much health records firm badly hit by ransomware here. If you are not protecting yourself, wow, you could really get nailed here. Bitcoin fluctuation speaking of ransomware they’re too volatile even for cyber criminals. And attackers are using Microsoft Office vulnerabilities. Yes indeed. There are still major vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office and using those to spread some new malware. Stick around. Here we go. You’re listening to Craig Peterson

Craig: Hey we’ve got to just think, just absolutely thank congress for HIPAA right. They put it in place, they said hey this is all for your security and your privacy. And it’s done anything but provide us with security and privacy. HIPAA has been just nasty. It has been a real problem when we’re talking about your records because remember back in the day the doctor may or may not have had your records electronically, right? They may or may not have had a network connection to the outside world. And they would fax things back and forth. Whatever information was really rather secure. And HIPAA required those doctors to now go the next step and automate everything. Tie it all in. Use these new health codes that narrow down the treatment. I mean just incredibly tight. And now we’re at the point where every hour a doctor spends with a patient they spend two hours doing paperwork. Now we could we could use technology to make everything quick and easy. The doctor has his iPad and takes a picture or the doctor might just put some notes and she just dictates to it. It goes into your file and it’s all kept locally. It’s all secure. But no they have to send it upstream. Thanks to Obamacare, many private practice doctors have closed their shops and they’re now working with large health care organizations so they don’t have to do all of the paperwork right. Why did they go into medicine? It wasn’t so that they could do paperwork, right? Push papers around. Figure out what the right code is for something. Deal with all the insurance overhead and headaches and believe me it doesn’t get any better when we’re talking about single payer. I’ve seen that in Canada. It’s incredible. Operations, well even just exams getting to see a specialist in Canada now takes over 40 weeks on average for an average specialist visit. And it’s been up in the U.S. the amount of time you have to wait for a specialist is up 50 percent since Obamacare went in place.

 

So we have all of these medical records that the doctors are having to fill out. They’re having to transfer them up to various databases. So where did Willie Sutton, right? Why did he rob banks? Because that’s where the money was or how many times have we said that here on the show. That’s where the money was. So now we’re talking about having all of the medical records in one place, a very simple place to get to. And even if they’re not trying to go after the hospital, even if the hospital and the clinics and the federal government and everybody else. Even if they keep all of that information safe, we’re ending up with an attack against the local doctor’s office. And what do they know about security? Right. You know we have doctors as clients in my company. And we help their offices stay clean, stay safe, stay HIPAA compliant which is a nightmare for these small doctor’s offices who are going out of business all the time. We could have something where it was just very simple. Why don’t we make it easy for the doctors? Why do we have to have all of these bureaucratic rules in place. All of this paperwork in place. You know we got a health care maintenance organization, HMOs and PPOs, because of the federal government. Why don’t we let the free market decide? Why don’t we let technology innovate? That’s why I was so against the so-called net neutrality. There is no way to innovate when you have to go to the federal government to get permission to try a new business model that was just utter insanity utter insanity. So why do we push on top of all of our doctors and medical professionals who really care, who really would love to help you? Why do we push on them all of this bureaucratic nonsense? Why don’t we deal directly with the doctors? Why don’t we pay for the services we use? Why don’t we have health savings account? Why don’t we have charitable organizations? Well we do. There are some of these out there that you can be a member of. And I’m a member of one of them. And we donate money every month to help cover other people’s medical bills.

 

Now right now those are limited to religious organizations but it could be broadened. There are so many ways we could solve these problems so the doctors and nurses and all of these health care professionals can get back to helping you with health care and move away from this huge problem that they have of having to comply with all of this bureaucratic paperwork. And it creates things like we have today. Here’s an article talking about Allscripts. They were hit just this Thursday, just this Thursday, with an attack that came through their data centers in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina. OK. The company has 1800 doctors across 4500 ambulatory facilities. 2500 hospitals. 1700 post-acute organizations on its client register. That’s this week. Is that nuts? Am I crazy here or is this nuts, right? What makes the most sense? Having all of this in one place? A report from CSO online where the company’s director of information security told customers on Saturday that its electronic prescriptions for controlled substances services were the worst affected. So let’s talk about controlled substances. Why do thieves want to know who is using controlled substances? Well we’ll talk about that when we get back because this is a very, very big deal and people are getting hurt in a major way over this. Well stick around. We’ll be right back. Of course, you’re listening to Craig Peterson.

 

Craig: Hey welcome back. Craig Peterson here. For those watching on Facebook right now, the Facebook Live. You probably noticed my face got a little bit brighter when I came back here from the commercial break. That’s because there is a light right in front of me that tells me I’m on the air so the AM and FM radio stations that are carrying this are now actually carrying it. So if the light’s off I guess I’m kind of safe although you should never say anything unsafe when you’re in front of a microphone. It doesn’t matter what the microphone is so it was interesting seeing the camera pick up the extra light from the On Air light that’s sitting in front of me.

 

So we were talking about these health care records and Allscripts being hit and the fact that they really seemed to have gone after the information on controlled substances. Now New Hampshire, what was it Karen, six or eight weeks ago we had a doctor up in the north country who was taking care of patients. Now she was taking people kind of like an old country doctor. She was taking people in who were paying her with the chickens. Now that’s sort of a country doctor. And she’s older, she’s just trying to help out people. And the state shut her down. Pulled the medical license because she would not automate her records. She said listen I can’t afford to. I’m taking care of indigent patients. Patients that can’t afford to pay for their healthcare any other way. So how am I going to be able to comply with these new electronic medical records that you want and take care of patients? Until the state said fine we’re taking your license away. And she had to report because she might provide some controlled substances to her patients who needed them. And the state was saying hey, listen. If you’re providing controlled substances you have to track it all. It’s just like now if you have a cold. I had this nasty flu for about two and a half weeks. I still I’m still not quite over it going on three weeks. And you go into the local pharmacy and you want the stuff that’s going to give you the, you know the energy. It’s going to stop the nasal drip. It’s going to stop the headache and the muscle pain and all the other wonderful stuff that comes along with the flu. But I still have work to do. So I need that extra bump. Guess what you can’t get that anymore. That’s all controlled now. Well it’s not totally controlled. There’s different levels of government control. Right. So you have to go to the pharmacist and you can only buy a certain amount. Well, we have 8 kids. So there’s 10 of us. But the federal government rules don’t allow for us to buy enough medication for all of us because it turns out, this is really weird. If one person in a household gets sick often more than one person will get sick. So you have 5, 6, 8, 10 people sick in the household and you can’t even buy it if you want to buy it. Thanks Federal Government. Thanks. It makes a whole lot of sense right.

 

So now we have the records about opioid prescriptions. And those records are being kept in computers and those computers are being hacked. So Allscripts again attacked Thursday. Allscripts lost their controlled substances record. So why are bad guys targeting controlled substances records? Because they’re having people break into the homes of people that have controlled substances and they’re stealing them. They’re approaching them as well in some cases to say hey listen if you have a few extra pills we’ll buy them from you because they have an incredible value on the street because of the people that are addicted to opioids. So now we’re publishing essentially we’re providing a list of people who have these controlled prescriptions for controlled substances being stolen and being sold to local criminals and being sold of course to gangs. Right. So they can make a few extra bucks isn’t this great. Right. This was predicted. I predicted this when the HIPAA rules first started going in place years and years and decades ago actually. It’s just incredible.

 

Well this attack on Allscripts came a few days after a Hancock Health Hospital in Greenfield, Indiana and Adams Memorial Hospital in Decatur, Indiana. They were hit by a variant of Samsung. Hancock ended up paying about 55,000 dollars to recover its files. And Hancock said, well you know it’s cheaper and easier for us just to pay the hackers for their ransomware attack than it is for us to try and restore all the files from back-up. You know what I think the reality is and I’m reading between the lines here. Right. This is my opinion but I bet you they did not have good backups. Because nowadays you don’t back up to tape you backup disk. So from my clients for instance we can restore a whole machine in a matter of minutes, literally minutes. It doesn’t take hours. And so if they had good backups and if they were modern backups they would be able to restore all of the machines and it costs them a lot less than 55 grand. But you know what’s even, another part here that I think a little bit worse? Less than half the time. This is from, these stats are from an FBI briefing that I had. Less than half the time according to the FBI. Less than half the time even if you pay the ransom, you don’t get your data back. So I think that’s probably a bad thing right? Well Hancock paid up. Brilliant on their part isn’t it?

 

Alright. Let’s talk a little bit about our friends the Russians and what’s been going on with Twitter. Now you know there’s been all of this stuff back and forth about oh the Russians, the Russians hacked our election and then they turned to… well they tried to hack our election and then it turned to. Well they tried to influence our election and then it turned to well President Trump’s team was involved with the Russians and they were trying to, you know take over and make sure they won. And Hillary would lose. Right. Of this narratives. They keep shifting, they keep changing as data changes right. As we find out more. You know without getting too political on this.

 

So Twitter who by the way has turned out to be very political, very left wing along with Facebook. Twitter has begun emailing Americans who apparently took the Russian election bait. Now it’s interesting that they’re calling this Russian election bait because almost all of this occurred after the election. Somebody in Russia must have messed up right. They got the dates wrong. So they bought ads that ran on Twitter and apparently ran on Facebook as well. But they ran after the election and they were supposed to help turn the tides of the election. And there’s a bunch of fake news right now too about the Russians kind of doing something similar right now where they’re supposedly what we’re talking about release the memo which is this memo on the Russian involvement that was produced by a congressional committee. And they’re saying no, no the Russians are involved in this too. They’re trying to make this hashtag trend and they’re using bots which are pieces of software that kind of pretend they are people just making a very, very simple.

 

Well it turned out that even some of the left news organizations are reporting now that none of that is true. So we don’t know the truth from the fiction when it comes to some of this Russian meddling. We will know we will get down to it. But Twitter now took an end of week opportunity here to dump some news onto its user base. And this is kind of a better late than never sort of news where Twitter is telling people that there was fake information. And that the Russians, and you know the Russians isn’t that kind of a loose term. Whether it was like a Russian mafia or as Putin himself, or if it was their intelligence services they messed around a little bit with ads on Twitter to try and make a mess of our elections kind of a bottom line. If they wanted a kind of a repeat of the hanging chads back in Florida in 2000. Did that happen? Well yes to a degree it did. So when we get back we’re going to talk about what Twitter is doing here. They’re mailing about three quarters of a million Americans emailing them this week. So if you engaged with any of these you know alleged Russian ads on Twitter they didn’t track that. And they do track what you engage with because they use that and they sell that, right? Just normally speaking. But they sent out an e-mail we’ll tell you about that e-mail. We’ll tell you about what Senator John Cornyn had to say about the e-mail that he received from Twitter and talk a little bit about you know the future. Does this matter? How much is that going to affect the elections in the U.S.? We have some elections of course this year. Every two years we have elections. Every four years, those elections include the president. Every six years senators have to be reelected. So how does that affect it and how does the technology we’re using for elections affect it all? So we’ll be talking about that and a whole lot more when we get back. You’re listening to Craig Peterson. Stick around because we’ll be right back.

 

Craig: CraigRadio.com by the way will take you to my main web site. And once you’re there you’ll see all of the articles I’m talking about this week. The articles we don’t get to. If you have not subscribed to my e-mail list please do. You’ll get one weekly e-mail from me. I don’t harass you. I don’t harass people. But that one weekly email will tell you basically everything you need to know right. I curate a list of articles that I find out on the internet that I think are of interest to everyone. And I send those out around 9 o’clock every Saturday morning before the show so you have a chance to review them. And then many of them I end up discussing during the show. So you can subscribe pretty darn easily and there’s a couple of ways to do it. But if you are on your computer right now you can just go ahead and go to http://CraigPeterson.com/subscribe.

 

Now if you are out and about you can pull out your phone and just open up the texting app on your phone and you can text me directly. Just text me your e-mail address, I’ll add you to my weekly e-mail list. Just text me 855-385-5553. We’re at almost 700 subscribers to my weekly text alerts which remind you about the show that it’s going live, that you can watch it. So those text alerts you can get by again just texting me 855-385-5553. If you text the word Craig to that I’ll automatically add you to my weekly show notes, texts, and reminders. 855-385-5553. And if you want me to send you my newsletter which is probably a good idea for you just text your e-mail address as well. Makes it pretty darn simple.

 

Alright. So here we go. We are moving on our Twitter, a little Russian propaganda stuff. They sent out e-mails. If you had interacted with the Russian propaganda. If you’re kind of wondering if you got nailed by it you will have already received an email from Twitter and we’ll talk about that email in a minute. It was actually 677,000 user accounts and that account includes those who interacted with almost 4,000 accounts that Twitter has directly linked to the internet research agency over in Russia. This is a troll farm. There are a lot of them. There was a, what was it Karen? Was it Homeland that had the troll farm? I think it was. Where they had all of these people in the building and they were all pretending to be multiple people and trying to change public opinion by what they posted. Well that’s what this is. This is a Russian troll farm. We have troll farms. Some businesses hire troll farms in order to get people to buy their products. I don’t think that’s very ethical if you ask me but we do it, the Russians do it. There are almost 4,000 accounts apparently the Russians were using for election related meddling. This was exposed last year. And this is a jump from the about 3,000 IRA or Internet Research Agency trolls that had been announced in October in the hearing in Congress. So they found a thousand others they think. Of course you never really know if it’s a troll. Right. This whole I’m a real person banter that you see out there.

 

So by the way there are an additional apparently 13,000 accounts. A total of about 50,000 automated accounts. That Twitter knows about and has suspended out there.

 

So Senator John Cornyn this week posted saying, “Finally his social media is waking up to manipulation of public opinion by our adversaries. All of us need to step up to meet this challenge especially the press.” Now how is this new? The only thing new about it is they’re using social media for it. They’re not using just the regular old ways. Think back to Ben Franklin. Right. And his publication that came out weekly. It’s been around far before that. This is nothing new. It’s harder and harder to police. The press don’t have the budgets they used to have. But here’s the tweet that came out from our friends over at Twitter. “As part of our recent work to understand Russian linked activities on Twitter during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, we identified and suspended a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government linked organization known as the Internet Research Agency.” Well that’s kind of long winded eh? “Consistent with our commitment to transparency. We are emailing you because we have reason to believe that you either followed or interacted with one of these accounts.” So looks like John Cornyn got sucked in by the Russians. And he’s upset about it. Now I guess that’s not too surprising. I’d probably be upset about it too if I was a U.S. senator.

 

Let’s talk about something a little bit different right now. Apple. Apple has been trying for what, two years, to come up with a competitor to the Amazon Echo. Google came out with their own competitor called Google Home Max. Sonos has had something out for a while. Beautiful sounding equipment. We’ve had them on the show before as well. We’ve had to the CEO over at Sonos on talking about her product. And we also had their CTO on talking a little bit about it as well. The Sonos stuff sounds really good. They’ve got some great stuff out there. So how does this all stack up? A really great article came out just yesterday from Serenity Caldwell. Now she was restricted in when she could release this information. I’m assuming Serenity is a she. I don’t know. Who knows nowadays? But her article came out and I read through it and it fits in with what a lot of other people are saying about this new Apple HomePod. So you’ll see that on my website as well. Http://CraigPeterson.com.

 

Now it’s kind of interesting because it fits with the rumors. So first of all you can buy an Amazon Echo plus a Google Home Max for the same price as you can buy an Apple HomePod. This thing is not cheap. This is a $350 speaker. It’s a smart speaker. So where you see the Amazon Echo is kind of aiming at being kind of a smart assistant. And the same thing is true for Google’s Home Max. They’re both trying to be kind of smart assistant. In the case of the Apple HomePod it really is a smart speaker. And the technology and the speaker is astounding. The type of technology that they have built right into this thing is the type of technology that previously had only really been available in speaker systems that cost fifteen thousand dollars or more. Isn’t that just amazing? It’s just crazy how much technology Apple has built into this. So Apple is using their smart chip technology that Apple developed themselves in this speaker in order to give you the best experience possible, OK? It’s incredible. It has a whole array of speakers around it. It has basically two built-in subwoofers all in a very, very small package that you can easily hold in your hands. And it’s using the computational power from the AA chip that’s built into it to figure out where it is in the room.

 

So you put the speaker down you start to place something and the chip is listening using the microphones that are built into it because it has multiple microphones as well. So listens to all of the microphones. Listens to whatever you’re playing like the music and listens to the echo. It figures out the dimensions of your room. It figures out the acoustics of your room and it pulls all of that together to manipulate the sound coming out of all of these internal speakers. And it sounds absolutely phenomenal. And it’s even smart enough it has an accelerometer built into it so we can tell when it is moved. So when you move the speaker to a different location that accelerometer informs the AA chip hey, listen. You’ve been moved. And then it uses its beamforming microphone array to listen to the sound in its new location and it read tunes itself so that you get beautiful sound. And in fact the sound can be all the way up to 90 percent volume, which by the way the HomePod will warn you saying that’s awfully loud. Are you sure you want it that loud? When you turn it up. And even at 90 percent volume you can still say Hey Siri and it will still activate and you can still talk to it and tell it to play music.

 

Now I can tell you from personal experience that that Amazon Alexa you have any real background noise even not even music gets played. And it’s really hard to get it to respond. So here’s kind of a bottom line on this thing. Not only will it say hey that’s very loud are you sure, but it’s using Siri. Siri is designed for security from day one, from square one. So what happens is when you say Hey Siri it’s the local speaker, it’s your local iPad or your iPhone that’s listening and hears Hey Siri. At that point it grabs the next however long, based on your talking. So if you’re talking to it for ten seconds like what’s the weather outside which is like a few seconds, it records that few seconds. It sends it up to the cloud. Now it sends it up anonymously. Apple does not track and it has no way to track what you’ve asked Siri. That is absolutely not true when you’re talking about the Amazon Echo or the Google Home Max. They are listening to you. And all of that information can be recovered. And we’ve heard about that before. In fact the HomePod,  I keep saying in fact, but the HomePod is so designed with security in mind that if you take it from your house over to your friend’s house, it will not allow any commands that might compromise your security. How’s that for performance. Not true with any of these others. Now Sonos has very good sound. It’s not quite as good or as clear as the sound from the Apple HomePod, but the Sonos speakers do have good sound. But they are using the Amazon Alexa technology in it. So again it’s not so great when it comes to listening for you to call it out to say hey Alexa and get rid of the background sound out there. If you want to read the whole article on the comparison. I think Serenity Caldwell did a great job. You will find a link to it right there on my home page, http://CraigPeterson.com.

 

When we come back we’ve got a couple more security things. Your car spying on you. We knew the day was coming. We’re going to talk about security fears now are sparking a crackdown not just on Russian software like that Kaspersky stuff, but also on Chinese computers. So stick around. We will be right back. You’re listening to Craig Peterson.

 

Craig: Hey welcome back. Tech Talk with Craig Peterson or Craig Peterson’s Tech Talk. We do it both ways. Well, do you remember that 80s band in that song? It still feel like someone’s always watching me. Well that might not be because you’re paranoid but the odds are nowadays that someone probably is watching you. I yesterday went on to Amazon. I wanted to get another you know a big clock because my old one broke down. An atomic clock that I can set so, you know, when you wake up in the middle of the night or when you wake up in the morning you can see the time. Nice big letters so you don’t need glasses or big digits. And then it’s also nice down the bottom you have kind of the weather forecast or at least the current temperature for the day. Well I would say two thirds of all of these clocks had cameras built into them. They had spy cams built in them. 1080p spy cams which is high def right? High def spy cams. And the units were 60, 70 bucks. So you could see the time. You could see today’s weather, you know the temperature outside and the temperature in your room. Plus you can download an app for your phone. And now you can spy on people from your phone. What? Really? I don’t get it. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense.

 

Thanks. Karen just brought me some water. Oh, that’s much better.

 

So spying is becoming just common. Police cars now have cameras built into them that are reading your license plates as you’re driving by. They’re putting cameras up at stoplights not just to catch people running spotlights but to track people as they move through the city. Now there’s an interesting article from The Washington Post, which I’m not a Washington Post fan, but talking about the extent of data collection and the distribution of the data. And that we know has been a big problem as we found out more and more about what the NSA has been doing and how they’re making all of the data available to pretty much anybody out there.

 

So they’re focusing on this guy named Daniel Dunn who leased a Honda in California. Now this was last year and he noticed in his contract that it said that Honda could track the location of his vehicle using the onboard GPS system and he agreed to it. He just made peace with the idea. But the data of that Honda collects about his leased vehicle is also sold on the open market. And that’s the part that’s more concerning here.

 

So the article says though drivers may not realize that tens of millions of American cars are being monitored and the number increases with nearly every new vehicle that is leased or sold. The result is that carmakers have turned on a powerful bigot of pressures personal data, often without the owner’s knowledge, transforming the automobile from a machine that helps us get from here to there to a sophisticated computer on wheels it offers even more access to our personal habits and behaviors than smartphones do. The thing that car manufacturers realize now is they’re not only hardware companies anymore, they’re software companies. The first space shuttle contain 500,000 lines of source code. Today Ford is projecting that by 2020 their vehicles will contain 100 million lines of code. So we’re going from 500,000 lines of code to over 100 million lines. So these vehicles are being coming turbo charged. The data is there. They hone in on your driving habits, how often you exceed the speed limit. You know and exceeding the speed limit can be safer than going the speed limit of everyone zooming around you on your right on your left. Coming up right behind you on your bumper.

 

But we’re not talking about possible data collection. We’re talking about real stuff now. I mentioned a few years ago a case up in Montreal, Quebec in Canada where someone was accused of speeding down Sherbrooke Avenue and was pulled over by the cops who hooked up a reader to the car’s data port and issued him a citation based on that reader. And we know in Mass. right now they’ve tried multiple times to get a law passed where as part of your annual vehicle inspection they’re tracking how many miles you drive within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And then they will tax you based on that. And they will also, by the way, issue you tickets if at any time they think you did anything that was dangerous. So even not just speeding but even coming to a stop quickly can be a dangerous thing and they can issue a ticket for that. So you know revenue enhancement and selling all of this data about us to marketers providing it to the government. And now we have even more data. It’s scary. What is it? As of the first of the year or the first of February, the Federal Government is not going to allow you to travel on airlines based on a driver’s license that’s issued from a state that doesn’t provide the federal government with your social security number and your photo. So these new secure IDs are also keeping all of this data which is already been stolen and it’s already being sold to marketers. It is very, very scary. How about we go back to society where our personal information’s personal. It’s private. We have a reasonable expectation of privacy, even just walking around the streets. I love to go back to those days.

 

Security right now, AT&T scrapped a deal with the Chinese phone maker Huawei because of concerns that U.S. lawmakers have and the federal government has about what the Chinese hardware could be doing. National security concerns have been raised here. Reuters this week has reported that the lawmakers are now pressing AT&T to sever all of its commercial ties with Huawei. Now do you have a laptop? Is it a Windows laptop? Is it a Windows laptop that’s made in China? By Chinese manufacturer? Because remember IBM sold their entire laptop division to a Chinese manufacturer out there. And so this is just going on and on. There’s been a federal ban on antivirus software produced by Kaspersky Labs. And that means that one might be legit as it turns out. I’ve always been impressed with Kaspersky. They continue to come out with great software. They have a great research lab. But now the federal government is cutting them off from government contracts. I have more information out on my website. And I saw a couple of people texted in. Again, if you’d like to get my weekly curated show notes, you can just text me your email address just text me at 855-385-5553. I’ll put that up right now my Facebook Live as well. 855-385-5553. There we go. You can just text me your email address. I will send you my weekly email. You can also, if you want, you can also get my weekly text alerts so you know when I’m going live on the air on terrestrial radio AM and FM here in the northeast as well as doing a Facebook Live. We’re going to try and do this every week now. You can get all of that information as well.

 

Again just text me your e-mail address. Just text it to 855-385-5553. That goes straight to me and I will send you a little reminder when the show starts every week. And if you text your email address, I’ll also send you my weekly show notes.

 

Have a great week. Thanks to those people signed up today. We are really close to 700 people on our weekly SMS list.
