Hey all, just thought I'd share - Python programming bundle available from No Starch Press, check it out. For $8 I got ten books. I'm going to use Python to decode ciphers! I'm a fan of No Starch and it seems like a good deal

So here's a /fun/ problem I'm having: after reinstalling Windows, the ethernet adapter on this PC doesn't work (well, it sort of does, but its so slow nothing ever loads). And not just the PCI card; I connected a USB adapter and it has the same issue!

Wi-Fi is totally fine (except that it disconnects from the network every once in a while—haven't tried to troubleshoot that yet)

Tell me my Infosec peeps, where do you get your phishing templates from? OSINT research, part of a package (a la KnowBe4, etc.), your Spam folder, or something else? Looking to expand my sources a bit.

Looks like webmin was compromised for a while through a build server. The implanted code was apparently injected during the build process and didn’t exist in the source repository. right?

But if you want to see what far right, white supremacist radicalization looks like, gab.com is a great place to look. Just wear googles or something.

@jerry but gab.com seems to have something the far left on the fediverse doesn’t: an army of radical trolls constantly stirring up shit.

Holy cow. The gab.com timeline is... nutty. But then, there are parallels to what I see in the federated timeline, just on the other end of the political spectrum.

Both are disappointing to see.

If you’re on infosec.exchange, have you noticed any performance changes since I moved media hosting to Wasabi about a week ago?

mobbing? 

In other news this week, a coworker of mine that lives in Florida was our walking her dog. It got off the leash, ran to a pond and was eaten by an alligator. I am not sure why, but this has really gotten to me. I never met the dog, but god damn do I feel horrible for the dog and my coworker.

@jerry it reminds me of the comment someone made to me once: one day a long time ago, my mom picked me up and put me down for the last time.

I moved my oldest son back to college this week. He likely just finished his last significant time at home over the summer and that makes me very sad. 😢
