~Open Source Security Tool of the Day~

So what is Frida, exactly?
It’s Greasemonkey for native apps, or, put in more technical terms, it’s a dynamic code instrumentation toolkit. It lets you inject snippets of JavaScript or your own library into native apps on Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux, iOS, Android, and QNX.


Setting up a tunnel took me 1 hour on my first attempt, reading docs included

Got to upgrade a box to buster (it was still a deb stretch, oopsie).

It is incredibly easy, compared to setting up an IPsec tunnel with Strongswan.

On the other hand, everyone was busy blasting Google for a similar plan in Chrome.


If you've not come across Shiva before, check it out on GitHub :) It's an Ansible playbook I put together for provisioning hosts for CTF / bug bounty work: github.com/rastating/shiva

Two of the most popular adblock extensions discovered to stuff tracking cookies into Chrome and generate revenue for the developers. Wouldn't be surprised if this was also present in the Firefox equivalent extensions


I foresee a lot of push back from certain sectors (private and public) like we have seen with the British ISPs who are angry that DoH will thwart their lazy compliance with British law by using DNS filtering.

Notice the use of the tired old "protect the children" canard being used to label DoH as disruptive and dangerous.
