We're at a point in time where any operating system requiring a reboot to change the hostname should be taken out behind the barn and put down.

Yeah but no.

"...would authorize the police department to use non-city-owned security cameras and camera networks to live monitor "significant events with public safety concerns" and ongoing felony or misdemeanor violations."


Back in April I said, one 20hr flight to Vegas for a 4-day stay a year is enough. Apparently it's not.

Just had a call with a $2.5 B customer that has over 6,000 employees.

Critical passwords were stored in an Excel file. 😿

Please, please, please, I beg you, use a proper business password manager for your company.

Is anyone else on iOS 15 seeing their country descend into idiocy

"Is our product meeting your expectations?"

Well, I expect software to be buggy and frustrating, with insufficient documentation and poor customer support.

So, yes, you are meeting my expectations.

Bit surprised I haven’t come across anything like this but are there any neurodiversity-focused hacker/infosec communities with a strong code of conduct? Discord, slack, IRC, Matrix, whatever?

Working in infosec means "can't talk about it" is either referring to something awesome or terrifying. And occasionally both at once.

I doubt this green energy initiative offsets the manufactured e-waste problem Windows 11 caused even slightly 2/2

The first big Windows 11 update (22H2) is out later this year. After this update Windows will try to install updates in the background at times when greater amounts of clean energy sources are available. It is positive, but very green-washy imo when you consider that Windows 11 is only supported on computers with TPM 2+ which means an absolute fuck-ton of computers are heading for landfills when Windows 10 ends support 1/2

I have been looking into yubico keys to have a portable way of taking my ssh keys with me.
It works nicely using PIV.

For "normal" ssh keys, I use a passphrase to protect it. With yubico (and tpms?) you can only set a pin.

Can someone explain to me why a pin is sufficient?
It seems very brute forceable if I drop the usb stick.
