Trump's intel chat with Russians, and a North Korea link to cyberattack

Picture posted to Russian social media account shows President Trump flanked by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (L) and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak (R) as they share a laugh during a closed-door Oval Office meeting on Wed., May 10, 2017.


"Something inappropriate"

Sources tell CBS News that President Trump may have exposed highly-classified information to Russia, as first reported by The Washington Post. A former intelligence official says Mr. Trump discussed "something inappropriate" during his Oval Office meeting with two senior Russian officials. The White House denies the damning allegations, but not that sensitive information came up in the private meeting.

Kim's hackers

Technology experts say the threat of another global cyberattack continues this morning, and they say there's evidence North Korean hackers could be behind the massive ransomware assault that paralyzed computer systems world-wide last week. While there's no smoking gun, there is a clue buried deep in the code of the program used by the still-anonymous cybercriminals.

Cyberattack losses

Global losses from the "WannaCry" attack that crippled computers in at least 150 countries could swell into the billions of dollars, making it one of the most damaging incidents involving so-called ransomware. As affected organizations work to recover their seized data and assess their losses, we estimate the financial and economic impact of the hack.

"Anxiety all the time"

Since learning in 2016 that their 24-year-old son was being held by Venezuela on espionage charges, the Holt family have spent more than $30,000 in lawyer fees, made repeated trips to Washington to meet U.S. government officials and thought of little other than his release. We find out why they have some measure of new hope, in spite of Venezuela's downward spiral into chaos.

Evicted by Assad

Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces are consolidating control of major cities. An agreement has allowed some rebel fighters to leave their former enclave in Homs -- a neighborhood reduced to rubble. As opposition forces are ushered into buses, they don't use the word "surrender" -- but that's what it is.


Every year, millions of U.S. employees are paid less than they are legally entitled to under state and federal minimum wage laws. Labor advocates say it amounts to wage theft, with some analyses putting the withheld amount in the billions of dollars. We look at why so many workers are being shortchanged.

Cosby speaks out

Bill Cosby is publicly addressing his sexual assault scandal for the first time in more than two years. Radio host Michael Smerconish says he interviewed Cosby for 30 minutes. In clips released yesterday, Cosby appears to suggest racism and revenge motivated the allegations against him.

Musk's multitasking

Tesla founder Elon Musk makes electric cars and solar roof panels for the mass market, launches rockets to resupply the International Space Station, and is working to build a machine that can read human thoughts. Some wonder if the ambitious entrepreneur could be spreading himself too thin.
