It appears I'm the only person in my immediate friend circle that rearranges my phone home screen when I travel

I'm told it's odd to put the apps I need for travel on home or dock only to move them when I return…

tbh, I don't understand why it's weird to make use of a devices features

"What the Fax?"
media.ccc.de/v/35c3-9462-what_

A pretty great talk from #35C3 on fax security. Contains actual reverse engineering of an all-in-one printer formware to find vulns to exploit and gain access to LAN by sending a malicious fax.

I'm on the fence between ZorinOS and ElementaryOS for my aunt's first Linux distro (her Windows10 was beyond saving, imagine ass-cancer levels of infection)

Which one would you recommend? She's been on Windows all her life, so I thought Zorin, but ElementaryOS looks so damn nice. I'd like something Debian-based and simple enough for a noobie to use. Windows looks are just icing on the cake.

I've been lurking here a while, and realized I never did a proper .

I'm primarily a software developer, and have had a passion for AppSec and InfoSec since writing my first robust login page.

I was a Solo dev, writing line-of-business apps for my family's farm business for years before transitioning to development in a more professional context. After "going pro", I found the get-it-done attitude I picked up working solo lands me a lot of work at the intersection of Dev and Ops.

Researcher pulls Black hat Asia talk on hacking apple's saying he was only able to reproduce hacks on iPhone X under certain conditions, but it did not work with iPhone XS and XS Max. Good PR for Apple, shitty PR for his company.

Big thing...

Does anyone know of a hardware module (pi hat, arduino shield, usb dongle) that interfaces with Quectel basebands or other basebands AND provides voice/sms (VoLTE or similar).

Sixfab shields are great, but they don't take advantage of voice functionality.

I've heard people kicking around ideas that would put people in charge of their data by effectively letting them rent it out to other companies, but this is the first time I've seen anyone actually try and build it.
It's an interesting concept, but I wonder if it would gain any adoption from the major players in surveillance capitalism.

My : After a few years as a security executive in the private sector, I’m now in risk management & information assurance in the gov world. I got my start in networking on a help desk, and raised my hand when my company at the time needed to start dealing with PCI. I love blue team, wish I was better at red, and usually just feel like I have so much to learn and not enough time to do it.

In the final few stages of preparing for oscp/crest certifications, after years of (serious) playing with/studying a broader range of relevant computer tech than seems to be needed for the oscp at least.

I'm not a fan of mainstream social media, or the direction the web generally seems to have headed in over the last several years, so hoping for something a bit different here!
