argentina for the g. twenty summit which is meant to focus on trade and climate change the u.s. mexico and canada have signed a new trade deal as president trump and china's media prepare for their trade talks on saturday. some it's been overshadowed by the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin selma who's appeared to be isolated he's been confronted by some leaders over the murder of saudi journalists. greeted by russia's president vladimir putin to stand up with ukraine is also a contentious issue. and ukraine's president has banned russian men between the ages of sixteen and sixty men from the country for a month ukraine imposed martial law in a number of provinces for thirty days after russia sees three ukrainian ships and twenty four sailors on sunday. now it's emerging as one of the largest cyber security breaches in history for the past four years hackers have been getting into the marriott hotel empire's guest reservation system and stealing the private data
7:41 am
of as many as five hundred million guests well the hacking attacks brands in the starwood network including hotels sent regis sheraton and the westin all star was acquired by marriott in twenty sixteen no chains which carry marriott branding a threat and where the data that's been compromised includes passport numbers credit card details e-mails and mailing addresses but let's bring in martin libicki he's a visiting professor at the u.s. naval academy and the author of cyber terence and cyber war he joins us via skype from kensington in maryland the numbers of accounts involved in this hack are simply staggering aren't they over five hundred million users how big a breach is this martin. well the five hundred million users it would be just below the yahoo groups which in theory had three billion and it would be larger than the equifax rich which came in at about one hundred fifty million. it's very early in the incident there's a lot we don't know. but i happen to question have five hundred million people
7:42 am
actually stated a starwood hotel. i mean it's it does seem like an extraordinary number but just to go back to the point you were making martyrdom and how does this compare then to other high profile breaches we've seen in recent years like yahoo sony and facebook and you know i mean just how big is this this one is pretty big and it's pretty big because it has a lot of non online data it's got credit cards it cuts it has passport cards it has addresses and phone numbers. this is one of the big ones clearly so so why aren't corporations learning from these attacks to strengthen their cyber defenses or can they in fact never be completely protected i think you know you're vast a very good question it's been five years this christmas and target was hacked. roughly about seventy million people had their credit card stolen and the c.e.o.
7:43 am
lost his job and you would think that corporations would take a lot more care to figure out who's getting the databases apparently from what i understand it was only recently that mary out understood that it was getting an authorized accessors the some of the data that should have been. should have been much better protected than it was so i have to confess a lot of this is a mystery to me. so much that i mean what could the motive be behind this attack and what do the hackers do with all this information that they get. well it's been observed that very little of this information has made a toy in the criminal markets these people have been taking credit card numbers for instance for four years and yet nobody seems to have had their accounts looted as a result and that makes a lot of professionals believe that the folks who are interested in the data were not criminals but they were asked intelligence agencies and they were basically
7:44 am
trying to do correlate the movements of people that they had information or with the hotel arrangements of these people ok try to find out for instance are whether two suspicious characters were in the same place at the same time all right so we have to leave it there martin the bikie thank you very much talking to are just the earth back to help another former bosnian military commander has been acquitted of war crimes during the one nine hundred ninety s. conflict he led the defense of the besieged town of sirte and was accused of killing three prisoners the town held the bosnian serb forces in one thousand nine hundred five who killed more than eight thousand bosnian men and boys all rich was hailed a hero by bosnian muslims but labelled at the butcher of bosnia and many ethnic serbs. now as british prime minister to resign may struggle to sell have brags that plan there's growing evidence that those who voted to leave the e.u. are changing their minds and that's leading to growing support for another referendum lawrence lee has this report from

a swanzy in south wales. when wales voted in favor of leaving the european union it was seen as a protest vote against the british parliament but as an act of revenge it has backfired already a shiver went through south wales when this german car parts company recently announced it was moving to the constant because of bricks it's it will cost five hundred british jobs the workers are exactly the demographic which voted leave it seems many are now having second thoughts you get a feeling that people are. thinking about it more now than it would be for the referendum is the truth i don't think they realize the implications and they currently see in the mess that we're in at the moment trying to deal with the negotiations on the withdrawal agreement. on a totally i would say i think yes people are in second thoughts. the prime minister visited wales this week when she took office she talked about it being an opportunity to build
7:46 am
a new economy that works for everyone somewhere that message got lost bits of south wales are among the poorest parts of the whole of the european union and when people here voted leave many said they expected the british government to step in and offer the same sort of financial support to them that the e.u. had previously done not only has that not happened it hasn't played any part at all in the debate about what post bracks it britain should look like. small as he had pinned its hopes on a hugely ambitious billion dollars scheme for a vast renewable energy projects in the bay it could have been a perfect example of a new economy for a poor part of the country but the government blocked it saying it didn't offer value for money local business groups say they've been offered no design no blueprint for how this will benefit them i think it's clear that their government in london very little intention of continuing the levels of investment that we've seen from. in this region or any other region around the way down here. in
7:47 am
southwest wales we feel a long way from london a long way from her priorities this sense of bricks it betraying the people who voted for it is leading to polling suggesting that wales and other places like it's changing their minds those who want another referendum are delighted there's one thing we've learned over the last two years is that the european union are going to bend at the knees for the wishes of the british i think people in that they've been led down the garden path and they have the right to express their view if they do the right thing actually is to a more sensible. all the talk in westminster of staying in the customs union or ambitious trade deals with america means little in places like this they expected it to rebalance the british economy and they still waiting for someone to tell them how it will lawrence lee al-jazeera in south wales italy's foreign minister has some of the egyptian ambassador to demand justice for those behind the murder of
