5:32 pm
people. >> reporter: the community has held vigils for milton who was praised for living in the community she wrote about east of the anacostia river. this video although grainy is giving those to those who knew and loved her that her killer will be caught. perhaps a passenger on one of those dirt bikes will break their silence. >> the hope that i have is that one of the young ladies who is riding with these men will really have a crisis of conscience and, you know she'll come forward and she'll say something. >> reporter: coming up on news4 at 6, i'll have more on what d.c. police are planning to do to deal with these illegal dirt bikes and atvs on the streets of washington. wendy, back to you. >> darcy spencer. thank you, darcy. the high-profile jesse matthew case starts next monday in fairfax county. matthew is charged with attempt attempted murder and sexual assault in a 2005 case. the victim just returned from india.

5:35 pm
struggle and the story of their families, the story of the struggle to try to find a handle on these very severe forms of epilepsy and them reaching out to see if there's something beyond the traditional medical community that they might be able to get their hands on that could make a difference. so it's a story you know well, but you see it in a way that maybe hasn't been seen yet because the story is a cliff-hanger right up until you see the vote take place. >> and hopefully it will give other mothers who have other alternative medicines out there that might help their children that they're struggling with, it might give them hope as well. we look forward to that. harry smith from new york. thank you so much. you can see his full story this sunday night on nbc 4. our coverage of the largest security breach of the federal government continues this hour. up next, we'll tell you why this is so different from some of the other major credit card breaches. plus, news tonight for

the massive government data breach is prolting mpting questions and few answers. erika gonzalez joins us with a cyber security expert to get more insight into the scope of this breach and its impact. >> joining me here is cyber security expert wade baker with threat connect. wade, we've been talking about this all day. how is this different than the breaches that we've discussed as it pertains to target, home depot? >> it all boils down to motive. when you steal a bunch of information, you have one of three basic motives you want to convert that into stolen cash by fraud, steal military trade industrial secrets to gain some kind of advantage or you have some kind of secondary downstream or future purpose in
5:40 pm
mind, you're building up a repository for additional attacks. this has all the hallmarks ever the latter. >> because we have not seen people complaining about fraudulent charges on their accounts or money missing. we're not seeing the financial implications immediately like we saw with target, with home depot. >> that's exactly right. >> so this is a very different ball game. tell me about why these hackers want our information to begin with. you talked about the latter amassing this large amount of data. what do they want that for? >> if you think for just a minute about the kind of information that opm would xr. they have financial records, trade information, your business contacts, your friends and family, maybe your employment history. and then you think, on the other hand, what they could do with that information in terms of blackmailing you recruiting you, sebding you something to trick you, to coerce you, kind of those things. if you put those two pieces of information together you kind of get the sense of what's going on. it's a much larger story and they're definitely going to use
5:41 pm
it to target individuals at some point in the future. >> especially because a lot of these individuals we're talking about have security clearance. >> absolutely, yeah. >> so anybody that's watching this over the next couple of days that has a security clearance, an elevated security clearance, should really be wary. >> you nailed it there, wariness is the issue there. be ready. any kind of suspicious contacts coming from someone, even if you think you know them this could be someone you had contact with a few years ago, could be contacting you all of a sudden. they might send you something hey, check out this information, you might enjoy reading it over the weeb kepd. that's the kind thf thing i think will happen here. >> wade thanks so much. >> thank you. >> we'll have more on news4 at 6. >> good ideas there and tip for ul us all. stay with us for continuing y. we'll have much more on this breach ahead on news4 at 6, including more ways you can protect yourself. a burglar broke in and took gold medals from a paralympian. >> that's not all they took. we'll tell you why the star athlete says those medical as

5:45 pm
some drivers think they're able to escape speed traps out there, slowing down for the camera and taking off. >> we all know that trick. but prince george's county police have a new way to catch those who speed through school zones. >> reporter: we know this trick because we've seen people do it. prince george's county police have as well. the problem is in areas like this one, after you get past the speed camera and really start to go fast, they have a plan to stop it. >> a lot of them know that the cameras are on. >> people always are reckless. >> reporter: drivers who take off after the school speed camera zone, we experienced it ourselves while covering the story. it was uncomfortable for me so just imagine little kids at this school. >> i think that the kids are not as aware you know, that cars do
5:46 pm
speed. >> once you've had a couple of these tickets you know you slow down. >> reporter: prince george's county is rolling out a photo laser camera. it's a hybrid between a radar and photo camera and it's small enough to be handheld. >> we just can't have an officer pull people over all day long in a particular school zone when we can cover our bases much better. >> reporter: the cameras will only be used in school zones approved for radar. there are 146 of them. so if the big cameras don't get you -- >> this makes its point. it may not do it that minute but it makes its point. >> reporter: -- the officer down the road will. >> my son goes to that school up there, kenmore middle school. as soon as that flashing light comes on, i go right back. i don't want no ticket. >> reporter: they're going to practice with these for about a month and violators will get warning tickets. then the violations for $40 will start to go out for folks who
5:47 pm
violate them. tracee wilkins back to you. >> thank you, tracee. montgomery county schools are celebrating a great year for senior seniors, including $335 million in college scholarships. 133 seniors were named national merit finalists, and there were also more than 200 ivy league acceptances, the highest number in five years. the school system also haws both of mareyland u.s. presidential scholars. 5-year-old boy from howard county made quite a find. he spotted a noaa weather balloon in a tree in his family's front yard. check it out. the balloons are launched daily, usually from major airports, and they typically come back down near airports. but this one drifted quite a ways. possibly because of our recent storms. noaa sent a self-addressed stamped envelope to the boy to send the device back so it can be used again. i think will he'll do it. >> i think he'll become a
5:48 pm
meteorologist. >> he might. look out! >> all from that weather balloon. >> is that weather balloon going to again? the sun is coming but way too slow for most of us. let's talk about what's going on outside. we're looking for some sunshine. the clouds very slowly thinning, temperatures have at least crept up a little built. we're at 73 degrees right now reagan national, the wind light but it has been the easterly wind that has had us socked in for the last couple of days, that weather system off the coast finally moving slowly to the east and northeast. if you're going out this evening, we'll see our temperatures come down just below 70 degrees around rate 8:00. we'll have more clearing taking place. partly cloudy, mid-60s, comfortable for us 10:00 11:00. over the last couple of hours, there's the storm system. you can see a little bit of rain left with it, but again nudging just off the coast where we're
5:49 pm
