I’ve started publishing my “extension security basics” article series. First article takes apart a very simple extension. Two more are already written, quite a few more are planned.

Monkeypox worrying you?

Do yourselves a favor and don't read all of the hand-wringing, sensaltionalist garbage flying around in the popular media sphere.

Find some real facts to work with.
Don't fall for the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt).
True knowledge is the best preparation.




@jerry lol ep. 267 "you were supposed to think about today's threats yesterday"... uhuh I gots confused, pretty sure I'm thinking of last week's threats tomorrow.

Bit late for but the kids have been having a bit of jubilee fun.

Hey @WPalant , just wanted to give a personal thanks for the screencastify work. Thanks to @gcluley reporting, not only do I know more about the risk our school's use of screencastify (and extensions in general) poses, but I'm armed with some little knowledge to start investigating the other extensions we use.

Understand the difference between @opensuse's distributions. Leap & Tumbleweed are very different. This article explains what they are & the comments about the article also provide some insight. itsfoss.com/opensuse-leap-vs-t

my passwords are so stupid even I could guess them

rtfm... I hate that phrase. It's so rude and obnoxious. Yet sometimes I wish I'd just rtfm... properly, with my glasses on, twice. Without drinking.

Then I wouldn't spend a month of Sundays trying to figure out why docker won't persist volumes. 'Cos it's in the manual, right there.

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

To all my friends, a modified blessing for you all:

May your alerts be few and your incidents be minor for the rest of your days.

Happy New Year everyone. Let's try to do better for ourselves and everyone around us in 2021, okay? This whole isolation stuff is starting to get old, and I'm not just talking about lockdowns and such. Stay healthy, stay sane, and stay happy.

Thank god that’s finally over.

Adobe Flash I mean.

Happy new year everyone.

So if someone made a podcast about security that's aimed at the C-Level, would you listen to it? Not the usual deep, technical, jargon but rather aimed at executives. No news, just best practices.

Please boost for maximum coverage.

Anyone else working on the SANS Holiday Hack Challenge? (link below) I've gotten through 4 of the objectives so far and a handful of terminal challenges but it'd be fun to group up and meet some other people.

Also thanks again to @gangrif for pointing it out to me! I appreciate it!

@gcluley oohh, you got namechecked, Mr 'infosec personality', and by a university research paper, no less! 😉

"It also quotes from infosec personalities such as Troy Hunt, Brian Krebs, and Graham Cluley."

Ah the giddy heights of stardom!
