Controlling your smart phone's ability to leak information is a high priority for me. That's why I was so pleased to find Bouncer. Have a look.
Now if I could only get my contacts to stop using Whatsapp and use Signal instead. 😑

Edge goes Chromium, and open source wins the browser wars | ZDNet
Decades after starting the web browser wars, Microsoft has given up its proprietary Edge web browser in favor of its open-source based rival Chromium.
US Pol, Downfall II Show more
Individual-1's Twitter has been becoming increasingly unhinged for days now, but this is pretty startlingly messed up even for him. People have been openly surprised that it isn't a parody account.
My money is on him sleeping even more poorly than he reportedly does, and that takes a pretty big toll on a dude with only a vague relationship with reality in the first place.
FireHOL is a language (and a program to run it) which builds secure, stateful firewalls from easy to understand, human-readable configurations. The configurations stay readable even for very complex setups.
It's OK Google: nobody will even notice.
Coming soon from your favorite botnet
To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!
Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:
Control Your Platform.
Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.
They all go away. Every one of them.
Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.
Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.
The Hinternet Show more
the Hinternet, unlike the Dark Web/Deep Web, simply consists of the parts of the internet that are far from the beaten paths. The land of personal servers, search-engine pessimization, and the Protocols of the Old Ways (e.g. XMPP, IRC, Gopher, etc.).
The Dark Web is something seen as "edgy" and "exciting" and is often popularized in the media. The Hinternet, on the other hand, is sparse, humble, and often considered primitive, but it's also home to a sense of humanity that is often absent in the central web.
This is quite an interesting cybercrime campaign.
"The ad fraud scheme that utilizes the Kovter botnet runs a hidden Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) browser on the infected machine that the user cannot see. A C2 server tells the infected machine to visit counterfeit websites. When the counterfeit webpage is loaded in the hidden browser, requests are made for ads to be placed on these counterfeit pages. The infected machine receives the ads and loads them into the hidden browser."
