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... 😁
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: https://www.sverigeskonsumenter.se/media/40ydnrpm/letter-to-amazon-270820.pdf

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.

Sifting through my old tweets, I found this Goldie: tainted love played by a bunch of 3,5" floppy drives:
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.
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 ?
