#Avast disclosed today a security #breach that impacted its #internal #network.
Avast said it believed the attack's purpose was to insert malware into the #CCleaner software, similar to the infamous CCleaner 2017 incident.
The worst part of the #NordVPN breach is having to read the absolutely awful 8Chan posts where it apparently originated.
@mistaken113 this is my 5th straight week in CT. Nice place, but I’m ready to be home.
@sillystring i gave up on apps a few months ago and have been all browser since. I am using an iphone, though. I’ll try my iPad later.
@sillystring odd. It doesn’t seem to happen to me. You using safari?

@ScottMortimer I would like to believe you, but the ad said “NO hacker”. Clearly they have some form of cyber crystals in the VPN concentrators.
And the #WeAreNameless movie for October 2019 is...
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)!

@superruserr it is my pleasure
Moderating new registrations is pretty effective at combatting spam accounts, but damn there are a LOT of registration attempts. 100 to 200 per day sometimes. Mostly from what appear to be compromised gmail.con addresses.
If I rejected your registration and you are not a spammer, please try again but enter something sensible in the justification box.
@vantablack do you need it? Is there something better to spend the money on?
Thinkpads are worth it, IMO.
@synfinner snacks are good too. Some even have full menus, but not the one I’m at today.
@jjbaumgartner I feel that.
