"The compromised PII consisted of information of individuals who had recently registered for our virtual DFIR Summit"

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.

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 ?

I love WSL2. I love and been using it since redhat 5.2, but having *does* make my life easier.

Now I don't have to choose between either, and don't need to deal with cumbersome VMs. I just install the distro I need and get all the underlying awesome tools.

This may be the closest we get "year of Linux desktop" (unless you count Chromebooks). But spreading ideals of should extend to more than desktops - it need to encompass cloud services, algorithms and more...

#keyoxide 2.0.0 is here and I couldn't be more excited about this one: the entire backend has been rewritten in #nodejs 🎉 this will make it much easier to develop new features and tools all using a unified backend

Sigh. Imagine if you could get a technical manual for your kids...

Fumbling around the net, I stumbled on the (and LoRaWAN) standard - which sounds pretty cool way for long-distance communication. Maybe it can even power networks?

Even if the bandwith is slim, information can be shared lo-fi style, like BBS or WEP.

What's up with and their tolerance of trootube? It's an instance filled with disinformation. I suppose peertube instances isn't moderated like Mastodon?

Kudos to defcon for making all the talks easily available to stream and even torrent to your own device. Streaming conferences should take note and follow them as a good example.

I found a dilemma when providing training in cyberselfdefence, and that is how it could be abused for hide malicious activity.

Knowledge is power, but power can be abused for evil instead of for good.

I'm curious if anyone else have faced the same situation, and how they go about it?

I've read a few criticisms of Tor regarding its capabilities of providing anonymity (due to factual, technical vulnerabilities) and having connections with US military (conspiratorial ideas?).

I'm curious what people think of - would you recommended it as a tool for anonymity and protection against surveillance?
