CVE-2024-6387: RCE in OpenSSH's server, on glibc-based Linux systems
  • You can read them as separate statements with the middle repeated and a logical AND between them:

    If (8.5p1 <= your OpenSSH version) AND (your OpenSSH version < 9.8p1) Then you are vulnerable

    It’s the same as saying if your OpenSSH version is between these two versions (including 8.5p1, but not 9.8p1), then you are vulnerable

  • Day 0 - Get Your Own Server
  • Oracle suck, and the omission of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure may be intentional here, but they offer 2 indefinitely free servers which only required a linked card iirc. Could be worth adding to the list?

    If you sign up for a PAYG account (which requires a $100 charge to your card, which is then refunded), you can actually get he ARM servers they advertise as always free. They’re a bit beefier (4 Ampere cores, 24gb ram).

    And they give 200gb of storage you divvy up between your instances.

    But Oracle deeply suck as a company, so maybe not mentioning them is the right choise

  • This timeline is wild...
  • Others have given the rap beef context, but nobody has mentioned why a blood would have been on stage or why that was significant. At the end of the concert, Kendrick got a bunch of people from a bunch of LA gangs on stage and made a big show of unity.

    TMZ article - mainly as a source, the article itself isn’t fantastic

  • Airport security be like
  • Scanners have gotten better recently, meaning they can tell the difference between water and explosives, but these restrictions weren’t pulled out of thin air like many others.

    There was a thwarted terrorist plot to use drink bottles to hold explosives.

  • Court Bans Use of 'AI-Enhanced' Video Evidence Because That's Not How AI Works
  • It’s not just the media who uses this term. According to this study which I’ve had a very brief skim of, the term “hallucination” was used in literature as early as 2000, and in Table 1, you can see hundreds of studies from various databases which they then go on to analyse the use of “hallucination” in.

    It’s worth saying that this study is focused on showing how vague the term is, and how many different and conflicting definitions of “hallucination” there are in the literature, so I for sure agree it’s a confusing term. Just it is used by researchers as well as laypeople.

  • Jellyfin (+ARR+RD) What’s the next step?
  • Other comments seem not to mention the Real Debrid bit, so I’ll focus on that here:

    Personally, I use my preferred debrid service to reduce the amount of stuff I need to store. You can mount the files you’ve got saved in your debrid using rclone with the webDAV creds that Real Debrid gives you.

    You should probably use rogerfar’s rdt-client, even if you only use real Debrid to download torrents without using your own ip. It implements the qBittorrent API so you can point *arts at it as a download client. It’s got a couple of modes, so you can either have the files downloaded or symlinked from the mount discussed above.

    Zerg from DebridMediaManager is something I've heard good things about, but i haven't been able to try it as its source-available for a fee, which i disagree with.

  • Cunk on bodies
  • Slightly confused by your last point, about the org itself, could you expand?

    The Organisation? No, it’s not paid work.

    This seems to imply to me that the organisation could never be “hurt” because it’s volunteer run, which I doubt is what you were saying.

  • ditch discord!
  • I don’t think people hate discord as a host for some communities, but there definitely is a growing rejection of it among FOSS contributors.

    It sucks as a place to store knowledge. The search sucks, it’s not indexable by search engines, and requires an account to use. As another commenter on this post said, it combines the worst parts of IRC and webforums.

    There are better ways to organise a FOSS project, and people are unhappy that some projects still choose discord.

  • Bankruptcy is lifesaving
  • Whilst it would be lovely if us Englishmen didn’t have student loans, they could be a whole lot worse. We only pay them once we earn over a certain threshold, and they’ll disappear after 30 years. Plus our unis are funded in large part by international students (which has its own issues), so Brits’ course fees are slightly subsidised.

    Not good, but hey at least it’s not the US(!)

  • For the first time in nearly 50 years, a Pennsylvania animal shelter doesn’t have any dogs left after hundreds of adoptions
  • I dont know what it’s like where you live, but in the UK, we get a decent number of ads around Christmas from the Dogs Trust telling people a dog is not just for Christmas. I don’t think it’s that weird that people make the association between dogs being adopted near Christmas and dogs being abandoned shortly after.

  • Sharing RealDebrid Account with Family?
  • Yep, those are 2 different ways to turn media requests from users into something oldx/jellyfin can use.

    Might be worth noting that real debrid’s webDAV implementation (the protocol that lets you access the files in your mount) is a little funky, and might get very slow for large libraries (over 1k links), so itsToggle (author of plex_debrid) has a fork of rclone to fix this. There’s also a new project called zurg from the debrid-media-manager people, but it’s closed source, and the devs don’t intend on making it open source.

  • Sharing RealDebrid Account with Family?
  • One way is to use rclone to mount your Real Debrid link onto your server and run plex/Jellyfin using the remote media. That way all your clients talk to the server, so you’ve only got one connection to RD

    RDT-client implements the qBittirrent api so you can point radar/sonar at it, and it will make symlinks from your mount to a structured media directory

    Plex_debrid is a python script which is a standalone method to get media onto RD. It can take requests from your plex watchlist or ombi/overseerr and will search trackers to grab the release. As plex is less fussy about the file structure of your media, you can just point plex straight at your mount.
