NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on a widespread cyberattack that is affecting companies and government systems (all times EDT): 5:15 p.m. A series of tweets issued by Ukraine's cyberpolice unit says the ransomware that has caused global havoc may have first spread through a rogue update to a piece of Ukrainian accounting software called MEDoc. Several vendors — including Kaspersky Lab and Cisco — have already identified MEDoc as a likely vector for the initial infections. Ukraine's cyberpolice said Tuesday that the rogue update occurred around 10:30 a.m. local time, seeding the infection to an undisclosed number of organizations across the country. Then, just as a few dropped matches can feed a forest fire, the ransomware spread rapidly from there. In a lengthy statement posted to Facebook, MEDoc acknowledged having been hacked but said it was not responsible for having seeded the rogue program. Ukraine's cyberpolice unit acknowledged the company's statement but stood by its analysis. It stressed that it was not attributing blame to the company.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the Republican legislation overhauling the Obama health care law (all times EDT): 5:55 p.m. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says "good progress" was made during a White House meeting between President Donald Trump and Republican senators. Trump invited them to meet after McConnell decided to delay a vote on a Senate health care bill because there aren't enough votes to pass it. McConnell said after the meeting there's a "really good chance" of passing the bill, but it won't happen before July Fourth as he originally planned. McConnell says Republicans must come up with a solution because that's why the American people elected them. He says negotiating with Senate Democrats won't produce any of the changes sought by Republicans, including to the health markets and Medicaid.
SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil's president dismissed corruption allegations against him as a "soap opera plot" Tuesday and sought to cast doubt on the motivations of the country's top prosecutor a day after a scathing indictment was issued against the leader. President Michel Temer is fighting to hold onto his job after Attorney General Rodrigo Janot filed an indictment with the Supreme Federal Tribunal on Monday. The charge sheet accuses Temer of corruption for allegedly accepting bribes from an executive at a major meatpacker in exchange for help influencing the decisions of state bodies.
BRUSSELS (AP) — European regulators fined Google a record 2.42 billion euros ($2.72 billion) for abusing its dominance of the online search market in a case that could be just the opening salvo in Europe's attempt to curb the company's clout on that continent. The decision announced Tuesday by the European Commission punished Google for unfairly favoring its own online shopping recommendations in its search results. The commission is also conducting at least two other probes into the company's business practices that could force Google to make even more changes in the way it bundles services on mobile devices and sells digital advertising.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a bruising setback, Senate Republican leaders shelved a vote on their prized health care bill Tuesday until at least next month, forced to retreat by a GOP rebellion that left them lacking enough votes to even begin debate. "We will not be on the bill this week," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters in what was a remarkable reversal of plans to push one of President Donald Trump's and the GOP's top priorities through the chamber this week.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's campaign promise to repeal and replace "Obamacare" is now in the hands of a key group of GOP senators who are opposing —or not yet supporting — legislation Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pushing. These lawmakers range from moderate to conservative Republicans, and include senators who were just re-elected and a couple facing tough re-election fights. Their concerns about the legislation vary along with their ideology, from those who say it's overly punitive in ejecting people from the insurance rolls, to others who say it doesn't go far enough in dismantling former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. Satisfying one group risks alienating another.
PARIS (AP) — A new and highly virulent outbreak of data-scrambling software caused disruption across the world Tuesday.

CHICAGO (AP) — Three Chicago police officers were indicted Tuesday on felony charges that they conspired to cover up the actions of a white police officer who shot and killed 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, saying the officers lied when they alleged the teenager "aggressively" swung a knife at officers and attempted to get up from the ground still armed with the knife after he was shot. In an indictment approved Monday and announced Tuesday, a Cook County grand jury alleges that one current and two former officers lied about the events of Oct. 20, 2014 when Officer Jason Van Dyke shot the black teenager 16 times.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration expects to launch a limited version of its travel ban on six mostly Muslim countries on Thursday, but has yet to say how it will be implemented or what it will do to avoid the chaos that accompanied the initial ban. Government lawyers were working on guidelines Tuesday, one day after the Supreme Court partially reinstated the ban ahead of hearing arguments in October. The court said the administration can block travelers from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen unless they can prove a "bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration threatened Tuesday that Syria will pay "a heavy price" if it follows through on what the U.S. says are preparations for another chemical weapons attack — warning of action that could plunge America deeper into a civil war alongside the fight against Islamic State militants. The chemical threat and sudden White House warning illustrate the challenging complexities of the fighting in Syria, a country whose territory was used by IS to march into Iraq in 2014 and prompt a U.S. return to the Middle East's battlefield. Washington now has more than 5,000 troops in Iraq and about 1,000 in Syria.
