Looks like at least one country is realising the reality of the *Infosec skills shortage* - only after the actual Parliament was attacked though! - You may be interested in this one too @jerry abc.net.au/news/2019-02-20/cyb

I bought a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition from Dell last month. A few days ago someone called Dell pretending to be me, said the laptop wouldn't turn on, and successfully ordered a replacement to a forwarding address in California. 😐

Now that the discourse around #Facebook begins to implicitly accept that it's declining or collapsing, it's become a sure thing. To help accelerate the decline, remind your friends and family of the services that Facebook owns that they should avoid along with the social network: #Instagram, #Whatsapp.
Remind them that #Google are just a more powerful Facebook.
Before they migrate to a new silo, and a new master.. let them know something new is growing over here on the Fediverse.

@whonose123 Yeah, it just made Landfall as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale which is equivelent to Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Typhoon on the JMA Scale, Severe Cyclonic Storm on the Indian Scale, or Intense Tropical Cyclone on the Meteo France Scale for comparison of various Tropical Cyclone Scales.

This is the first named storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season that was named in the region (Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was in the Australian Region but reached naming intensity within Meteo France La Reunion's Area of Responsibility before entering tde Australian Tropical Cyclone Basin)

@HackerRadioShow
Great show this week! It is possible to deliberately "confuse" search history across multiple engines with a simple plugin called "trackmenot" addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef that simply creates search terms and constantly searches for weird and random stuff (you can block certain terms, thank goodness)

This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.

Facebook is the least trusted tech company, for handling personal data: fortune.com/2018/11/08/mark-zu

I have been wondering: how quickly could a site like Facebook die? I think it could happen very quickly, if there were an alternative platform. Once the network effect shifts from Facebook to something else, it's basically Myspace city. The challenge is establishing that network effect somewhere else.

It looks like I will be spending my Saturday doing some SD card forensics. That’s now what I had in mind for this weekend, but well, looks like the landlord of a friends friend installed a surveillance cam without them knowing...

@HackerRadioShow BOO!!! Missed the show for the last month! - Good to see you on Mastodon, but I think the way you introduced it on the show would confuse some people.
Maybe explain how they can "sign up" and then follow you?

Is there a good guide to setting up an IPv6 home network (including DHCP, DNS, etc) for moderately savvy users? Trying to teach it to someone and realizing I don’t understand it well enough to simplify it usefully…

I breached a company through a newly constructed branch location.

I slipped in in that short moment between them implementing the network and them implementing the security to protect that network.
