Facebook users who downloaded the “Unfriend Alert” application should be on alert because the app could have access to your login and password, according to Pieter Arntz of Malwarebytes Labs.

The app promises to send you an alert when someone unfriends you on Facebook. However, instead of sending unfriend notifications, it sends your login information to yougotunfriended.com.

Malwarebytes writes:

“But if you provide your login credentials, which seems a bad idea in the first place, the program is able to see whether one of your Facebook friends decided they had enough of you. Also the application does not show up in the list of Apps on your Facebook page, so you might easily forget that something or someone could be monitoring or even be using your Facebook account.”

If you have downloaded the app, it’s recommended you change your Facebook password as soon as possible. Here are the steps to…

Humane Society says Costco egg supplier in Gettysburg mistreats hens

WPMT FOX43

CHICAGO (Reuters) — An undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States found unsanitary and “inhumane” conditions at a Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, farm that supplies eggs to retailer Costco Wholesale Corp, the animal welfare group said Tuesday.

Footage collected at a Hillandale Farms facility in April and May by someone “associated with” the Humane Society showed hens laying eggs in cramped cages with deceased birds. Broken eggs and dead chickens were on the floor.

“This is the type of inhumane, unhygienic and unsustainable practice that has no place in Costco’s egg supply chain,” Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection, said during a media conference call.

Hillandale Farms said the employee that gathered the footage was to blame for the lapse in production standards and that he has since been fired. The company said it brought in two independent food safety and veterinary experts to review its operations…

Hero service dog jumps between blind owner and bus

WPMT FOX43

BREWSTER, NY –  A blind woman and her dog Figo were walking home Monday morning when the dog spotted a mini school bus heading their way.

The golden retriever’s protective instincts kicked in to save his owner, 62-year-old Audrey stone.  Figo threw himself at the closest part of the vehicle, putting himself between Stone and the bus.

Stone still suffered a fractured right elbow, three broken ribs, a fractured ankle and a cut to her head.  Figo injured his front right leg, witnesses say it was cut down to the bone.

Police say the bus wasn’t traveling fast, but the dog, “took a lot of the blow.”

The driver of the school bus, carrying two kindergarteners, told police  he didn’t see the pair crossing the road.  An investigation is underway, and the driver was taken for a routine drug test.

Witness, Paul Schwartz, said the dog appeared to only be…

Washington Breaks Ground on First Animal Overpass | Ecorazzi

Life or Lunch?

shutterstock_142899463This week will mark a first for Washington, as the state breaks ground in construction for their inaugural animal overpass.

Interstate 90 in the Northwest cuts through the forests and mountains of the region, having long proved dangerous and fatal for wildlife. Now, the Department of Transportation will begin building a 150 foot-long structure freeway overpass designed specifically for all animals to endure safe passage, set to open in 2019.

“This is really a remarkable effort,” said Patricia Garvey-Darda, a biologist for the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. “The goal is to connect all the species and all the habitat.”

This is only the beginning in creating animal-friendly land in the high traffic area.  A 15-mile stretch of interstate is part of a project that all told, will feature more than 20 underpasses and overpasses to facilitate the movement of local wildlife.

While this is the first overpass, four underpasses are already…
