Donald Trump’s website briefly defaced by cryptomining scammers
Guys in programming:
Flapping your degrees around and randomly *demanding* the programming credentials NOW of someone who dares to make a thing you notice while not being another guy... is NOT a good look.
Don't be this fucking guy.
Pursuant to RFC-FU-RIAA, I am making youtube-dl source code available at a .well-known location on this domain.
This is a symlink to the latest version, which you can also download directly....
If you are an instance admin, I thoroughly recommend you join me by making youtube-dl source available at the same locations on your domain, too!
I have brought up an RSS-to-ActivityPub server. It can convert any RSS feed into a ActivityPub actor, so that one can follow them from Mastodon, Misskey or other ActivityPub compatible platforms to receive updates of the feed.
It's still under development so please do not abuse.
I have modified the code so that it should be compatible with latest version of Mastodon, Pleroma and Misskey.
Feel free to report any issues on GitHub:
OMG, am dying!!!
Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.
I'm seeing a lot of people getting mad at Github for a DMCA takedown.
DMCA is US law. Github is a US company. youtube-dl can be acquired elsewhere. Github cannot be expected to engage in civil disobedience or court action over this.
Here are some reasonable choices of people to get upset with:
- The US legislators who put the DMCA in place or refuse to change it
- The RIAA for filing this particular DMCA claim
What happened to #youtubedl is nothing new, really. Maybe some people remember this...
"I reverse engineered McDonald's internal ordering API and I'm currently placing an order for a McSundae every minute at every McDonald's location in the US to figure out which ones have a broken ice cream machine."
Donald Trump’s Twitter password is “maga2020!”, and there’s no 2FA, claims hacker.
You don't need an IQ of 197 to know that's pretty dumb...
