Leaks of the Conti group’s comms & data indicates they’re interested in firmware-based attacks, which is pretty damn frightening https://thehackernews.com/2022/06/conti-leaks-reveal-ransomware-gangs.html?m=1
I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.
We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.
This seems to be organized and well-resourced.
Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.
Scotland’s Linguistic Landscape - Scots and Gaelic | Ashley Douglas
Centuries before we had American Sign Language (#ASL), Native "Hand Talk" was thriving across North America. Plains Indian Sign Language (#PISL) was used so widely across the Great Plains that it became a universal language for both deaf and hearing people to communicate between tribes. At one point, tens of thousands of indigenous people used PISL for trade, hunting, conflict, storytelling and rituals. It formed the basis for ASL and has largely been lost to history. https://youtu.be/s1-StAlw3aE
