Cloudflare made public dashboard for their TLS interception monitor.


TLS interception is a process when your protected connection to some website is broken up to examine the content and then forwarded again - transparently for you. This can be legitimate (e.g antivirus check or enterprise compliance) or malicious (surveillance and hacking). Basically it is like opening a letter, peeking (or messing with) the contents, closing it up again and sending on its way.

It looks like 25-30% of all protected traffic is being snooped on.

Since Cloudflare processes around 10% of entire Internet traffic the global picture should look similar. Of course absolute majority of it is made up by enterprise proxies that legitimately inspect employees traffic for malware scanning and other compliance... but still. So much for that green lock being security and privacy panacea 😀

"I didn't have control": A 14-year-old on why she quit social media

Then, several months ago, when I turned 13, my mom gave me the green light and I joined Twitter and Facebook. The first place I went, of course, was my mom’s profiles. That’s when I realized that while this might have been the first time I was allowed on social media, it was far from the first time my photos and stories had appeared online. When I saw the pictures that she had been posting on Facebook for years, I felt utterly embarrassed, and deeply betrayed.

NetworkManager-1.16: Add support for WireGuard VPN tunnels and Wi-Fi Direct connections (Wi-Fi P2P).

=============================================
NetworkManager-1.16
Overview of changes since NetworkManager-1.14
=============================================

This is a new stable release of NetworkManager.  Notable changes include:

* Check connectivity per address family.
* Support "main.systemd-resolved" to let NetworkManager configure DNS settings
  in systemd-resolved without making it the main DNS plugin of NetworkManager.
* Write "/var/run/NetworkManager/no-stub-resolv.conf" with original nameservers.
  That is useful with caching DNS plugins like "systemd-resolved" or "dnsmasq" where
  "/var/run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf" refers to localhost.
* Change default "ipv4.dhcp-client-id" setting for the internal DHCP plugin from
  "duid" to "mac". This is a change in behavior on upgrade when using the internal

EU government websites infested with third-party adtech scripts | ZDNet



A total of 112 commercial companies are systematically harvesting this information and tracking us through EU government portals and public services. Ten of these companies have masked their identities, too, which could suggest the problem is deeper than we think.

Once this data is collected, it may end up in the possession of data brokers both in and outside of the ad network industry.

An examination of public sector websites across the EU performed by Cookiebot found that 89 percent of official government websites of EU member states contain third-party ad tracking -- despite these websites not requiring ad support to run.

Just Saying


Everything we post online or over the phone can be used to track our whereabouts, sell us things or otherwise be used against us. Edward Snowden risked his life to tell us how intelligence agencies are spying on us without constraint. Their FISA warrants are merely a rubber-stamped formality. They use the ’national security’ excuse as a shield and it forbids us from knowing what they’re doing. Whistleblowers are harassed and jailed. Most politicians are compromised and blackmailed. The Fourth Amendment is dead

My personal computer is used for my business and contains confidential data about my clients. As part of the regulatory and supervisory function of the company I work through, I am being asked to install a piece of software - OPSWAT Hosted Service - to monitor and report that my computer has various safeguards in place (updated AV, OS, JS, etc.) Before I allow the software to be installed, I asked for the Terms of Service so I could see the permissions being granted. However, I am a novice about these matters.

Would anyone here offer to quickly review the ToS and give me their opinion? Does this company have any bad reputation issues? Thank you in advance.

Mode
  • IKEv2 - Default connection mode, usually the fastest, but can be easily blocked.
  • UDP - This mode uses OpenVPN protocol. UDP is usually the fastest protocol to run OpenVPN on, but can also be blocked quite easily.
  • TCP - Use this if UDP fails to connect. Much more resilient to bad network conditions, but could be slower.
  • Stealth - Encapsulates OpenVPN in a TLS tunnel via Stunnel. Only use this if all other methods fail. May be handy in China.
  • Wstunnel - Encapsulates OpenVPN in a WebSock

Hier, le #WWW a célébré son 30è anniversaire!


J'aurais dû le dire hier, mais j'étais un peu trop occupée, alors, c'est pour aujourd'hui! Bref, mieux vaut tard que jamais! La toute première page web de l'histoire se trouve ici! Vous pourrez notamment y lire la déclaration de Tim Berners-Lee au sujet de son invention, résumant la philosophie qui la sous-tend et la motive. Ça ne nous rajeunit pas, mais ça reste pleinement d'actualité! D'autant plus que ce qui a commencé comme un idéal de partage universel de l'information, de manière #libre, a été littéralement piraté par les intérêts privés et des modèles économiques qui transforment les données privées des usagers du Web en "pétrole" du 21è siècle! #privacy #GAFAM

PS: L'image est de Robert Cailliau, le collègue et complice de Tim Berners-Lee au CERN lors de l'invention du world wide web.
