As part of Budapest Airport’s strategy to further develop its route network to the east, the Hungarian gateway launched its second link to Russia when it celebrated Wizz Air’s new service to St. Petersburg. Last flown in 2014, the ultra-low-cost carrier’s (ULCC) resumption of the highly demanded link will see Russia become Budapest’s 12th largest country market served.

News broke yesterday that a huge spambot ensnaring 711 million email accounts has been uncovered. A Paris-based security researcher, who goes by the pseudonymous handle Benkow, discovered an open and accessible web server hosted in the Netherlands, which stores dozens of text files containing a huge batch of email addresses, passwords, and email servers used to send spam.
