Chick-fil-A Inc. may be the latest victim of a major credit card breach. Krebs on Security, a cyber crime and Internet security website, reported this week that "sources at several U.S. financial institutions say they have traced a pattern of credit card fraud back to accounts that all were used at different Chick-fil-A fast food restaurants around the country."

Former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo -- who rose from the Depression-era streets of Queens to serve three times as governor, from 1983 to 1995, and whose passionate keynote address at the 1984 Democratic political convention vaulted him onto the national political scene -- died Thursday. He was 82. Cuomo had been hospitalized recently to treat a heart condition. His family said he passed away, at home, from "natural causes due to heart failure."

A cargo vessel carrying hundreds of migrants is being towed to Italy after it was abandoned by smugglers and left drifting without a crew. Children and pregnant women were among an estimated 450 migrants on board, most of who were believed to be Syrian. The latest high-seas drama came two days after Italian sailors intercepted a freighter carrying more than 700 mostly Syrian migrants which had been heading for the rocks of Italy's southeastern shore.

Twitter users piled on Thursday following Jameis Winston's horrible Rose Bowl stumble-fumble. Trailing Oregon 39-20 in the third quarter in the 2015 Rose Bowl, Florida State decided to go for it on 4th-and-5 from the Ducks' 30-yard line. The play could not have gone any worse for the Seminoles, as Winston fell backward, fumbled the football and had it returned for a touchdown. Even fast food chain Arby's went in, tweeting "If you're loving this game, we've got a few desserts you might enjoy. #Turnovers #OREvsFSU"
