Capital One hackThere’s a huge data breach to tell you about this morning, and it might be one of the biggest. A hacker gained access this year to 100 million Capital One credit card accounts and applications. Paige Thompson was arrested yesterday and charged in connection with the hack, the Justice Department said. Thompson, 33, once worked as a software engineer for the cloud-hosting company that Capital One used. The personal information accessed — which the feds say Thompson tried to share online — included 140,000 Social Security numbers, 1 million Canadian Social Insurance numbers and 80,000 bank account numbers, as well as people’s names, addresses, credit scores and other info. Capital One says it has fixed the problem, will notify those affected and will offer victims free credit monitoring.Watch a hacked ATM spew cashWatch a hacked ATM spew cashblack hat ATM hack cnnmoney_00022302JUST WATCHEDWatch a hacked ATM spew cashReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

They were all so young. Trevor Irby, 25, had moved to California from New York to be with his fiancée, whom he was with at the Garlic Festival in Gilroy when he was shot and killed. Keyla Salazar was 13 and about to celebrate her birthday. She had spent the morning of the shooting cleaning and doing chores to convince her parents to buy her a puppy. The youngest victim was just 6. Stephen Romero was playing in a bounce house when he was hit by gunfire. His mom was shot in the hand and stomach.The shooter, who was killed by police about a minute after he opened fire, referenced a white supremacist text on social media. Investigators have also figured out that the AK-47-style rifle used in the attack was bought legally in Nevada, although it was illegal to take it to neighboring California.Police: Shooting suspect legally purchased riflePolice: Shooting suspect legally purchased riflePolice: Shooting suspect legally purchased rifleJUST WATCHEDPolice: Shooting suspect legally purchased rifleReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Pakistan plane crashAt least 17 people were killed early this morning after a military plane crashed into a residential neighborhood in the city of Rawalpindi. Witnesses said they heard a loud explosion after seeing the army plane flying low over the city, just south of the capital of Islamabad. Twelve of those killed were on the ground, according to the military’s news agency, while five crew members died on the plane. Among the dead were two high-ranking officers in Pakistan’s army.4. Italy stabbingThe knife used to kill an Italian police officer was taken to the country from the United States. The officer, Mario Cerciello Rega, was stabbed 11 times with the knife, according to police. Two teenage American tourists have been arrested and charged in the slaying. Rega, 35, was killed late last week in Rome after returning to work after his honeymoon. Police said Rega was trying to recover a backpack allegedly stolen by the two suspects after a botched drug deal. One of the teens has confessed to the killing, police said. Rega’s funeral was held yesterday in his hometown of Somma Vesuviana, near Naples.Photo leaked of US teen in custody over officer's killingPhoto leaked of US teen in custody over officer's killingPhoto leaked of US teen in custody over officer's killingJUST WATCHEDPhoto leaked of US teen in custody over officer’s killingReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Philadelphia hospital closureDid a group of rich investors let a downtown Philadelphia hospital go bankrupt so they could profit from the land on which it sits? That’s the accusation being made against a private equity firm that bought Hahnemann University Hospital, which serves Philly’s neediest residents. The equity firm, owned by Joel Freedman, bought the hospital early last year. But last week, it released its last patient, and within a month, all of the hospital’s staff will have been laid off. City and state officials, unions and even presidential candidate Bernie Sanders accuse Freedman of wanting to dump the hospital to free up the land for a potentially lucrative sale. The site, near City Hall and a convention center, is desirable to developers, who could build condos or a high-end hotel there. Freedman declined to comment, noting in an email that he’d “have a lot to say” about the controversy in coming weeks.This is why US health care is so expensiveThis is why US health care is so expensiveThis is why US health care is so expensiveJUST WATCHEDThis is why US health care is so expensiveReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
