I2P 2.6.0 Release - Blog - I2P
  • That’s because you’re using it for a purpose it wasn’t intended. I2P isn’t designed to be used to browse the regular internet, for that it’s better to use TOR. However for anonymous torrenting or accessing i2p-sites, it’s quite fast imho.

    Okay, good.

  • Today I'm grateful I'm using Linux - Global IT issues caused by Crowdstrike update causes BSOD on Windows
  • Windows does have a fallback mode called safe mode and that’s exactly what’s being used to fix this utter mess.

    The other fix was reboot your Windows computer at least 15 times.

    Package management isn’t going to save you from this as it didn’t save the Linux systems affected last time. It didn’t stop Arch Linux from failing to boot after a Grub update either.

    Not everyone was affected though :

    How come not everyone was impacted?

    Prior to the most recent version, grub only registered the fwsetup if detected support. If your machine detected support, you would have had the fwsetup command registered and the failure wouldn’t occur.

  • Global IT outage shows dangers of cashless society, campaigners say
  • There's more to it. The mono-culture is one thing, but rolling out the update to millions of computers on the same days sounds like a bad idea.

    Fun fact in 2008, with nuclear submarines, the mono-culture was not that bad yet.

    It's interesting to note the UK went with a Windows XP variant and not Windows Vista, which is marketed as the more reliable OS. The USA never made the same calculations: The American Navy runs on Linux.

  • [Question] Font fingerprinting -- even tor browser is vulnerable!?
  • Disable javascript, trying to get around fingerprinting with javascript enabled is an exercise in futility, and is especially risky with something as heavily monitored as tor.

    I like disabling JS myself for some web browsing but this can make fingerprinting easier because most people do enable JS, and I've read that with JS disabled certain things still can be detected through CSS files.

  • CrowdStrike broke Debian and Rocky Linux months ago, but no one noticed
  • RHEL, Ubuntu, & Debian cover the vast majority of enterprise installs I imagine, and provide a solid testing base for developers in the Linux business software space.

    Enterprises I imagine are using RHEL, Ubuntu, SUSE's SLES and Oracle Linux and probably not Debian. But that's a guess. Where can statistics and numbers be found ?

  • Mounting Folders VS Symlinks?
  • Also how to mount folders to other folders (option 2) ? (I would really appreciate a GUI way)

    The CLI way syntax : ln -s source target

    For example : ln -s /media/username/NTFS-folder-Downloads ~/Downloads/NTFS-folder-Downloads (Make sure to omit a trailing / if you are using command line auto suggestion completion).

    If you want an answer from other readers about the GUI way : it would useful which file manager (Nautilus, Dolphin, Nemo, Caja etc.) you are using.

  • [SOLVED] I seem to have nuked my Debian DE (Gnome)... Could someone help me with this?
  • EDIT: I kinda forgot to actually mention my problem. When booting nornall, I get stuck at a lonely white blinking cursor on a black screen, so startx seems to make some problems. I enter a TTY and run startx and this is what I get when running startx:

    output of startx

    What was the output ? It is not visible for me here.

    • Were you using startx successfully before ?
    • Or are you reverting to trying startx and you did use some graphical display manager like gdm, sddm or lightdm before ?
    • Could it be a disk space problem ? If you run out of space trouble can happen with various applications.
    • Can you boot from a previous kernel (At the GRUB or systemd boot menu) and see what happens ?

    Jailbreaking RabbitOS: Uncovering Secret Logs, and GPL Violations

    cross-posted from: https://infosec.pub/post/14981035

    But as I and others looked closer, and thought about it more deeply, things became concerning.

    These logs include:

    Your precise GPS locations (which are also sent to their servers). Your WiFi network name. The IDs of nearby cell towers (even with no SIM card inserted, also sent to their servers). Your internet-facing IP address. The user token used by the device to authenticate with Rabbit's back-end API. Base64-encoded MP3s of everything the Rabbit has ever spoken to you (and the text transcript thereof).

    [SOLVED] First time installing linux (Debian). Got this error. Please help
  • Is this a desktop computer ? Two hard disks can make things more difficult. How about taking the power cord temporarily off from the larger disk, then install, and if it's successful then turn it off and give the 2nd disk power again, and add that 2nd disk manually to the fstab as e.g. /opt/ as mount point.

    "I have Linus to thank for a long career using FreeBSD" | comment on HN

    Comment by drewg123 on July 25, 2019

    > I met Linus at the Linux BOF at the 1994 Boston USENIX. Very ironically, I have Linus to thank for a long career using FreeBSD. It sounds like a cheap shot, but please hear me out: > >I was sysadmin'ing a university stats department at the time, and NFS use was very important. I had been trying to use Linux on 486's, but performance of xdvi (with NFS mounted fonts) was abysmal. A 486 would take minutes to render the same page that a wimpy DECStation could render in a second. From tcpdump, I figured out it was because Linux did not do any sort of NFS caching at the time, and xdvi wandered around font files one byte at a time. > >I asked Linus at the BOF when they planned to implement NFS. He told me NFS was unimportant, nobody used it, and so on. > >I then attended the FreeBSD BOF where a clean shaven guy in a collared shirt was giving a power point presentation. I asked about NFS there, and was told it should work fine. When I got home from the conference, I switched the 486 to FreeBSD, and it worked just fine. > >I eventually did OS research on FreeBSD, was one of a few people to port FreeBSD to the DEC Alpha, and I now do kernel performance work for a large CDN, where we run FreeBSD.

I was exploiting a blind XXE vulnerability that required an external HTTP server to smuggle out files, so I spun up an AWS box and ran a simple Python webserver to receive the traffic from the vulnerable server.
