Q was a skilled LARPer who fed the audience’s beliefs back to them; recycled ideas from earlier LARPs; and had help early on from a small but clever band of fans who spread word about the drops outside of #4chan.

Leider gibt die Meldung bei Heise wenig her aber mit der gleichen Argumentation könnte man Google lahm legen weil man über Google strafbare Inhalte finden und tauschen kann. Ich habe sogar mal gehört, dass Hacker Google zur Suche nach Schwachstellen im Internet nutzen.

Moin Mitnanner,

da ich mit der üblichen Internetrecherche in einem vertretbaren Zeitrahmen noch keine befriedigende Antwort gefunden habe, folgende #Frage an die IT-Spezialisten hier. #Cyber und so:

Ist das Schützen zB. einer Office- oder PDF-Datei mittels Passwort der gleiche technische Vorgang wie das Verschlüsseln der gleichen Dateien mittels VeraCrypt oder ähnlichen Tools?

Wir haben hier unterschiedliche Meinungen, die auf Basis knallharter Ahnungslosigkeit gebildet wurden und wären so gerne fundiert auskunftsfähig. Dass die "Verschlüsselungstiefe" verschieden sein kann bzw. ist (AES 128 vs. 256) und dass es verschiedene Verfahren bzw. Algorithmen gibt (AES, Twofish, Serpent ...), ist uns einigermaßen klar, aber wird beim Passwortschutz wirklich die komplette Datei verschlüsselt oder wird nur der Zugang zu den Informationen innerhalb der Datei irgendwie beschränkt?

Danke Euch herzlich vorab!

W O W !!! Oh boy... what a guy !

I made a free alternative to Photoshop, that is used by 7 million people. Ask me Anything!


Hi, my name is Ivan Kutskir, I am 29 y.o. and I live in Prague, the Czech Republic. I created Photopea , an advanced image editor which works in a web browser. There were 7 million visitors in July.

I started to work on it in 2012, the first version was published in 2013, it was just my hobby until 2016, when I graduated and started to work on it full-time. I did not fully "believe" in Photopea until 2017, when I started to monetize it (with ads) and was able to make $400 a month :)

I had an AMA on Reddit over a year ago and I would like to tell you what happened since then :)
  • the number of users doubled (again)
  • my income doubled
  • I added the support for text on a curve, smarter selections, opening Figma files, puppet warp, content-aware scale, improved PDF support and more
  • I reached 2,300 solved issues on Github!
  • Photopea still wasn't acquired by anyone, even though I received several offers of an investment
I still work on Photopea alone, but I would like to hire more people. I would like to start making a video editor, too, at some point. Ask me Anything! :)

You can follow Photopea on Facebook or Twitter! Proof: I put a link to this AMA here!

Photopea is an advanced editor and it is hard to learn simply by using it. I wrote a manual here: www.Photopea.com/learn .
btw, there's a #podcast on Ivan Kutskir and Photopea...

INFOSEC: FUCK YOUR '"BLACK/WHITE NEUTRALITY"!

By Catalin Cimpanu for Zero Day | July 4, 2020

The information security (infosec) community has angrily reacted today to calls to abandon the use of the 'black hat' and 'white hat' terms, citing that the two, and especially 'black hat,' have nothing to do with racial stereotyping.



Discussions about the topic started late last night after David Kleidermacher, VP of Engineering at Google, and in charge of Android Security and the Google Play Store, withdrew from a scheduled talk he was set to give in August at the Black Hat USA 2020 security conference.

In his withdrawal announcement, Kleidermacher asked the infosec industry to consider replacing terms like black hat, white hat, and man-in-the-middle with neutral alternatives.

These changes remove harmful associations, promote inclusion, and help us break down walls of unconscious bias. Not everyone agrees which terms to change, but I feel strongly our language needs to (this one in particular).

— David Kleidermacher (@DaveKSecure) July 3, 2020

While Kleidermacher only asked the industry to consider changing these terms, several members mistook his statement as a direct request to the Black Hat conference to change its name.

With Black Hat being the biggest event in cyber-security, online discussions on the topic quickly became widespread among cyber-security experts, dominating the July 4th weekend.

While a part of the infosec community agreed with Kledermacher, the vast majority did not, and called it virtue signaling taken to the extreme.

Most security researchers pointed to the fact that the terms had nothing to do with racism or skin color, and had their origins in classic western movies, where the villain usually wore a black hat, while the good guy wore a white hat.

Others pointed to the dualism between black and white as representing evil and good, concepts that have been around since the dawn of civilizations, long before racial divides even existed between humans.

Right now, the infosec community doesn't seem to be willing to abandon the two terms, which they don't see as a problem when used in infosec-related writings.

In den sozialen Netzwerken - und insbesondere auf #YouTube - findet man unzählige Accounts bzw. Kanäle von Esoteriker(inne)n, die sich nicht nur mit Meditation, Seelenwanderung und Ähnlichem beschäftigen, sondern gleichzeitig auch mit großem Eifer eindeutig rechtsradikales Gedankengut verbreiten. Diese auch "braune #Esoterik" genannte Szene ist in den letzten Jahren erheblich gewachsen - und wird bisher von Behörden und der Öffentlichkeit weitgehend ignoriert. (Wobei man durchaus streiten kann, ob man den hier im Bericht genannten Ivo Sasek wirklich als Esoteriker bezeichnen kann…)

USA und China: RISC-V zieht wegen Handelsstreit in die Schweiz - Golem.de

Da werden auch andere noch folgen.

Man muss sich das auf der Zunge zergehen lassen: Die amerikanische Administration wird deutlich als willfähriger und unsicherer Kantonist wahrgenommen.

Vor einigen Monaten habe sie die Einreise von UN Diplomaten verweigert. Dazu gibt es feste Absprachen und Regeln. Die USA hat fest zugesagt, das sie UN Diplomaten die Einreise nicht verweigern wird und das der UN Hauptsitz dann auch in New York sein kann.

Aber was interessiert mich das Geschwätz von gestern…

Jeder der meint, die USA wäre ein verlässlicher Partner, kann sich die Blutspur dieser Nation ja mal genauer anschauen. Irak ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür.

Aus Angst vor einem künftigen US-Embargo zieht die RISC-V-Foundation aus den USA in die Schweiz. Das soll Probleme wie in anderen Konsortien und bei Herstellern wie Huawei #RISCV #Huawei #Internet #PolitikRecht

Im Jubiläumsjahr des Internets behandelten wir schon die Geburt des ARPANET und die Geschichte von CompuServe. Heute geht es um einen anderen Online-Dienst: AOL. Es war einst das größte Netzportal der Welt; im Jahr 2000 hatte es 35 Millionen Nutzer. Boris Becker machte für AOL Reklame, und die CDs des Unternehmens überschwemmten die westliche Welt.
AOL CDs, kennte heute auch kein Mensch mehr von den Jüngeren.
Gabs wie Sand am Meer. Gibt's AOL eigentlich noch=?

Not entirely sure yet what it does and how it works, but I've just joined wt.social, which might be the future. Or not. You can join me here (there might be a waiting list, took me 4 days until I was in).

I've created a subwiki (whatever that is) for Islay, to share Islay related posts. Let's see what happens.

"We have noticed that you are using adblocker"

This is what another website said to me a minute ago. Then it asked to whitelist them.

Dear website, you are wrong. I am not using ad blocker. I use some anti-tracking functionality in my browser. I don't even have control on most part of it unless I want to pop up the hood and go really deep in there. Also I use some blacklisting of especially abusive ads and trackers on my router. Sorry, I can't whitelist you, there is simply no easy click of a button to do so.

And you know, website, it took years and years, decades even to develop this sort of environment you find yourself running in. At first I was even glad to see banners. They were fun to see. Then as years went by I installed ad blocker. It was really simple back then. Then it just went on and on - and here we are. You are not whitelistable. Most likely your ads won't display even on unfiltered direct connection and clean Firefox install with default settings.

So what can I do? Ask yourself, dear website, how have you driven all of us to this. Sure as hell it wasn't me.

Now when we have this cleared I am going to look for an easy way to bypass your "anti-adblock" shield. I won't even bother using any dedicated tools for that. If in about 30 seconds I won't see the content I want I will close the page and move on. Also I'll make a mental note not to click on your links again because of this.

How to fix this, you ask me? I don't know. Maybe accept the fact that ads are so last century? How about dropping these user tracking annoyingly contextual ads altogether and try something else? Like, you know, conscious advertising? Like old school magazines (the ones on paper) did?

And DoubleClick and friends can go fuck themselves. Ad banners are dinosaurs and the business feels chilly because the asteroid already hit.

Café Internet | HNF Blog

In den 1990er-Jahren entstand eine neue Form der Kommunikation: das Surfen im Netz, genauer gesagt, im World Wide Web. Die Computer dafür gab es in den Internetcafés; dort saßen alle, die keinen Anschluss besaßen und auch keinen Zugang am Arbeitsplatz oder in der Hochschule hatten. Das erste deutsche Internetcafé öffnete vor 25 Jahren in Fürth.
