The NSA were able to break VPN encryption on Russian, Iraqi airlines and associated booking systems along with a Qatari media outlet. Unknown whether they outright cracked improperly configured encryption or whether they targeted hardcoded credential setups.
Sysadmins need a shirt reading: "I survived Patch Tuesday"
So I managed to get IPv6 inside an OpenVPN tunnel working. However, I still need to figure out how to make it dynamic, because currently the prefix inside the tunnel is copied manually from the WAN interface. I mean I could use a private prefix and use NAT, but that seems like a poor solution.
Does anyone have a better idea?

So. My contract with my job came to an end rather unexpectedly. Understandably, I'm seeking out a new job ASAP.
I'd prefer second line support, junior sysadmin, or similar -- but I'm aware I don't necessarily have the right to be picky and as such I'm open to other roles too.
I'm based in Manchester UK, but open to remote.
I'm working on BSc. Computer Science from Open University. Also self-teaching C# and Python && fundamentals of Linux and Networking.

Regarding the Firefox DNS stuff - I recommend you read both Mozilla's blog post as well as the ungleich.ch post criticising it, and then come up with your own conclusions.
Seeing a lot of questioning of the motives of Mozilla and Cloudflare with the recent DNS over HTTP announcement. I primarily dislike it because it complicates how systems work. Next Chrome will send their DNS queries to google, edge to Azure, Safari to Akamai. I’d rather see a move to DNS over HTTP at the OS level and for broader ISP support for it.
Upcoming Firefox release will start sending all your DNS requests to Cloudflare
Looks like this will override local resolvers and therefore break any LAN only domains (as well as sending data to a US company).
Details on how to change this in about:config here https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2018/06/01/improving-dns-privacy-in-firefox/
Enjoy your Sunday, friends.
Reddit user data compromised in sophisticated hack
Question for #InfoSec experts (please boost if you know one).
Compared to the #EFAIL panic and hysterism, where a lot of people were debating about the issues of #GPG, nobody seems interested in the fact that a with a trivial attack, anyone can forge PROOFS on people PC.
Nearly every account registered recently on infosec.exchange appears to be intended to spam 😕
