I definitely trust my DNS provider - NextDNS - more than my ISP. This is because I willfully chose them after doing research and I also pay for the service to support them and keep them providing me with the tools to filter out crap and transparently show me what is happening on my networks.

VirusTotal and ThreatConnect is good for the community availability. Also passive Dns offerings, and a couple more that is paid/enterprise solutions.

Good luck with the threat hunting

Thank you @kde for all your work on KDE & Plasma. Thank you @mozilla for Firefox. Thank you to all the kernel hackers for their restless work on the Linux kernel. Thank you to everyone involved working on the GNU tools! Thank you to all the devs working on libraries and the backend, who clearly get to little love!

Interesting item to think about, knowing your 'enemy'...

does 'knowing your enemy' involve ...
- a list of bad IPs
- a set of event ids
- different entropy (ie when obscuring potentially malicious powershell commands like disabling an etw provider)

"In fact, many observations of past badness — the indicators — may in fact be essentially random and present no useful knowledge about the future badness or about the nature of the enemy, their intents and capabilities."

Life before Google:

You’d think of something, ask your friends, and they would be like “Gosh, I don’t know” and then you’d be like “Oh, well, guess that’s a thing I’ll never know” and then everyone just proceeds with their fucking day.

I’ve taken up “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman again, while I wait for my next software book to arrive. I started reading it last year but found it slow going as it took a lot of brain power to process. It’s not so much the text itself that is hard to read, it’s that it leads you to re-evaluate your own biases, which can be very difficult.

There's a very cool exhibit at the Met right now that includes two 16-17th C encryption devices. The book-like device is surprisingly complex, the second uses a simple substitution system that translates letters into distances.
