The infosec handbook has left the fediverse:

I joined the fediverse thanks to them. Understandable decision, but still - what a loss... 💔

Amazon just went live in Sweden and, wow, the degree or translation errors is HILARIOUS. Some products are translated to the letter (the game "watchdogs" became "looking at dogs") and some products were described with våldtäkt (rape) in their description. This is machine learning going, like, REALLY sideways.

Well, I guess AI isn't so scary after all... 😁

Good on the EU Parliament!

"The European Parliament rejected a proposal to ban terms such as “burger” and “sausage” to describe plant-based food. Europe’s farming lobby had claimed that using meat-like names could confuse consumers".

Out of all the risks of 5G, there is one that I'm really afraid of. That is the web becoming even more bloated than it is today thanks to higher bandwith in the 5G network.

The web needs to be saved from the current "track everything" paradigm 😕

There's one kind of party that I hope will be wipe off the earth's face, that is recent and that belongs to the medieval times...

"Gender reveal party".

Urgh.

Since when did external full-size keyboards require the fn-key to be pressed in order to use F1-F12?! *rants shockingly*

Stupid question: if I host a webside over itty.bitty.site without SSL certificate, but with a hash at the end of the website, then the end-user could check the websites integrity and authentication against my GPG public key to prove that it hasn't been tampered with and was written by me.

What the end-user won't get is the TLS-encrypted connection and transfer of the website.

Am I getting it right?

Swedish Consumers Association did not show mercy to Amazon in their open letter, in regards to them establishing their presence in the next few weeks: sverigeskonsumenter.se/media/4

I used to be excited for Amazon coming to Sweden, but I rather spend my money on a company that is *slighty* more ethical in their business practices.

Third time I'm deleting Facebook over course of its inception - and now for good.

It is a disease to modern society. A plague of privacy abuse and desinformation that causes deadly outcomes from anti-vaxxers and insane conspiracies. It has gone from being a tool of communication to being a weaponised platform for destabilisation and propaganda.

Fuck Facebook. The less people using it - the better.

To all Swedish speakers: säg hej till @itsakerhetspodden som just anlände till Mastodon! En informativ och underhållande podd om IT-säkerhet.

What happened to co-location offerings for raspberry pi, did they die off? 😐

Imagine a world where setting a "Do Not Track" setting in your browser would be a (legally) effective way to opt out of tracking and you would never have to see those "Cookie settings" / "We value your privacy" layers anymore, because you've already made your choice.

Once again an authoritarian regime pulls the kill switch on internet access almost widespread protests. This calls for the need of a mesh network with a longer range than common WiFi and Bluetooth adapters.

However, I also see a risk for disinformation becoming widespread on a decentralised, unmoderated platform.

Both are different types of problems that can be solved, but the technological problem is easier to deal with than increasing critical thinking on a societal scale.

I've decided to take on a few challenges. Do mind that while I'm semi-technically proficient, I'm very new to .

Therefore I wonder if there is anyone or a community who could take the time to answer some of my questions that might arise? I don't want solutions, but rather understand the inner workings behind some of the mechanisms.

A mysterious group has hijacked Tor exit nodes to perform SSL stripping attacks

The group ran almost a quarter of all Tor exit nodes. Group still controls 10% of all Tor exit nodes today.

@protonmail Could this explain the attack I reported you ?
