Several of the Westchester.gov Web sites run by the County seem to be back up–at least sporadically– after being hacked Friday. The hacker’s message poked fun at the county’s computer security, saying “Security is a joke! Your box owned by Mr.XHat Greets To: All Underground Hackers & Mafia Bands.”
The sites were those of Several of Westchester County’s offices, including those for the district attorney, the county clerk and the Board of Legislators. Did this shutdown affect you? Did it get in the way of your doing business with the County, finding directions, or anything else?
Robert Redford’s Sundance Cinemas has signed a lease to build and operate an 8-screen cinema at the new “luxury retail center” called Rivertowns Square, to be developed on the Saw Mill River Parkway in Dobbs Ferry. According to the PR Newswire, it will be Sundance Cinemas first theatre on the East Coast. Robert Redford, Sundance Group President is quoted as saying “I’m so pleased that Sundance Cinemas will be building our first theatre in the Northeast in such a vibrant corridor in the state of New York.
