Yesterday tried to answer to an email from Microsoft's Hotmail/outlook.com. And of course my email was rejected because "part of [my provider's] network is on [Microsoft's] block list". So they are blocking emails from subnets when they notice there are any suspicious activities. Not based on my host's reputation that didn't change for the past 2 years.
Just if you search for a reason to switch to a another email provider.
If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:
You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.
Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).
“Schengen-Informationssystems: Großbritannien kopierte Daten” https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Missbrauch-des-Schengen-Informationssystems-Grossbritannien-kopierte-Daten-4481596.html Ob die britische Regierung annähernd versteht, welche Gefahr das für den britischen Wunsch darstellt, auch nach Brexit Flugpassagierdaten aus der EU übermittelt zu bekommen? #Datenmissbrauch
Yesterday I started to deploy SSO through my private infrastructure using keycloak. And after deploying Nextcloud and CodiMD with it, I start to question this decision.
Because it's nice to have a central place and only a single login for all services, but except of me, no one is using all services and I don't see an easy way, to restrict people from using certain services.
What to do…
Watching one of my favourite projects slowly dying is painful.
I'm reminded again how the best #FOSS software isn't made by the most skilful coder, or by the most advanced language... but by the most engaged community.
Don't forget to update our synapse instance. Version 1.2.1 is a critical security update which can lead to downgrade attacks on rooms, spoofed read recipients, people being pushed out of rooms, and more.
In order to keep rooms and your servers safe, please upgrade.
After reading another conflict about #contradictions about what people say and what people do, I decided to write a little note about it on my pad:
With some reasoning why I think you shouldn't try to judge people before you understand their intentions and stop nailing people down to a few statements they made at some point.
All this would prevent a lot of drama and scandals and without anyone giving up any of their freedom.
I just searched for something completely different but got across this article. It sounded like an interesting problem to solve and as it turns out, wow, I never realized that this problem exists, even when it makes a lot of sense.
TL;DR: People don't enter coordinates to describe an area in order, which causes some confusion on your
The lovely folks at Pimoroni messaged me on birdsite to say they’re sending me the official Raspberry Pi power adapter for free and wouldn’t budge when I tried to convince them that I was happy to pay for it (just didn’t want to pay for shipping again).
Please support them: they’re an independent shop in the UK and they have lots of yummy things for tinkering with electronics and computers and awesome customer service:
The only reason machine learning an AI is even considered in various places as a possible solution is because computer's got people's trust by being *computers*, means machines that calculate results based on algorithms. Where the algorithms were written by humans.
Nowadays we use "AI" to throw data in and getting some results out. And just because it's done by computers people don't question the results. Computers have an image of being correct.
Schon allein das Abspielen eines Videos reicht aus, um jedes Android-Gerät zu übernehmen, das nicht die Security-Updates von Juli 2019 eingespielt hat. Banking-Apps und Co. prüfen das Sicherheitspatch-Level allerdings nicht - die Verantwortung liegt allein beim Nutzer.
Looking ahead in my calendar… I think it's time to write a blog post. Went for a responsible disclosure and didn't head back within the past 2 months. Want have things prepared for the day I told them I would disclose things.
Quite annoying when people don't respond on their contact email addresses.
This whole aging-app disaster brings out what's wrong with the end-user software market:
It's a market that pretends to be for their customers but is almost completely about the vendors.
It's on us to change that.
I guess one of the biggest threats to peertube could be pirated videos. Not because you can't ban bad guys, but because every viewer immediately becomes part of the peer-to-peer network sharing/uploading this content.
And at least for Germany we all know how that works out…
And if you wonder how I came up with the topic: I just saw a video on #peertube and the suggestions where full of music videos which probably originate to youtube, but aren't uploaded by their original authors…
