Zu Schade, ich verstehe nichts von derartigen Dingen.
Aber es ist ein lesenswerter Artikel!!! 😀)
I think this is a good deed by a hacker and good deeds could find imitators. ;)
Too bad, I don't know anything about such things.
But it's an article worth reading!!! 😀)

Further more we would like to inform you that we do not run a "proxy" for email, all necessary outgoing ports are blocked to prevent running an SMTP server via this Tor-Exit server. If you received emails from our IP you must check your mail server setup, most likely you permit transmission on non standard ports.
Seems there is a lot of mail server out there that allow transmission on C2S ports too, sorry for not being sorry.

Permission prompts are a common sight on the web today. They allow websites to prompt for access to powerful features when needed, giving users granular and contextual choice about what to allow. The permission model has allowed browsers to ship features that would have presented risks to privacy and security otherwise.
However, over the last few years the ecosystem has seen a rise in unsolicited, out-of-context permission prompts being put in front of users, particularly ones that ask for permission to send push notifications.
In the interest of protecting our users and the web platform from this, we plan to experiment with restricting how and when websites can ask for notification permissions.
Rationalizing Push Notification Permission Spam
Push notifications are a powerful capability that enables new kinds of interactions with sites. It is hard to imagine a modern chat or social networking app that doesn’t send notifications. Since notifications can be sent after you leave a site, it is only natural that a site would need to ask for permission to show them.
A Notification Permission Prompt
But anecdotal evidence tells us that there is an issue with notification permission prompts among our user base. As we browse the web, we regularly encounter these prompts and more often than not we become annoyed at them or don’t understand the intent of the website requesting the permission.
According to our telemetry data, the notifications prompt is by far the most frequently shown permission prompt, with about 18 million prompts shown on Firefox Beta in the month from Dec 25 2018 to Jan 24 2019. Not even 3% of these prompts got accepted by users. Most prompts are dismissed, while almost 19% of prompts caused users to leave the site immediately after being confronted with them. This is in stark contrast to the camera/microphone prompt, which has an acceptance rate of about 85%!
This leads us to believe that
1. There are websites that show the notification prompt without the intent of using it to enhance the user experience, or that fail to convey this UX enhancement when prompting.
2. There are websites that prompt for notification permission “too early”, without giving users enough context or time to decide if they want them, even if push notifications would significantly enhance the user experience on that site.
Last year Firefox introduced a new setting that allows users to entirely opt out of receiving new push notification permission prompts. This feature was well received, among users that discovered it and understood the implications. But we still fail to protect the large part of our users that do not explore their notification settings or don’t want to enforce such drastic measures. Thus, we are starting to explore other methods of preventing “permission spam” with two new experiments.
Experiment 1: Requiring User Interaction for Notification Permission Prompts in Nightly 68
A frequently discussed mitigation for this problem is requiring a user gesture, like a click or a keystroke, to trigger the code that requests permission. User interaction is a popular measure because it is often seen as a proxy for user consent and engagement with the website.
Firefox Telemetry from pre-release channels shows that very few websites request push notifications from a user gesture, indicating that this may be too drastic of a measure.
We suspect that these numbers might not paint a full picture of the resulting user experience, and we would like to get a real world impression of how requiring user interaction for notification permission prompts affects sites in the wild.
Hence, we will temporarily deny requests for permission to use Notifications unless they follow a click or keystroke in Firefox Nightly from April 1st to April 29th.
In the first two weeks of this experiment, Firefox will not show any user-facing notifications when the restriction is applied to a website. In the last two weeks of this experiment, Firefox will show an animated icon in the address bar (where our notification prompt normally would appear) when this restriction is applied. If the user clicks on the icon, they will be presented with the prompt at that time.
Prototype of new prompt without user interaction

During this time, we ask our Nightly audience to watch out for any sites that might want to show notifications, but are unable to do so. In such a case, you can file a new bug on Bugzilla, blocking bug 1536413.
Experiment 2: Collecting Interaction and Environment Data around Permission Prompts from Release Users
We suspect that requiring user interaction is not a perfect solution to this problem. To get to a better approach, we need to find out more about how our release user population interacts with permission prompts.
Hence, we are planning to launch a short-running experiment in Firefox Release 67 to gather information about the circumstances in which users interact with permission prompts. Have they been on the site for a long time? Have they rejected a lot of permission prompts before? The goal is to collect a set of possible heuristics for future permission prompt restrictions.
At Mozilla, this sort of data collection on a release channel is an exception to the rule, and requires strict data review. The experiment will run for a limited time, with a small percentage of our release user population.
Implications on Developers and User Experience
Web developers should anticipate that Firefox and other browsers may in the future decide to reject a website’s permission request based on automatically determined heuristics.
When such an automatic rejection happens, users may be able to revert this decision retroactively. The Permissions API offers an opportunity to monitor changes in permission state to handle this case.
As a general principle, prompting for permissions should be done based on user interaction. Offering your users additional context, and delaying the prompt until the user chooses to show it, will not only future-proof your site, but likely also increase your user engagement and prompt acceptance rates.

The first script,
find-fakes.pywill search the diaspora database for users that have no content and only a single log-in and write out the user ids to a file. You may specify
--interval <days>to omit newly-created accounts.
The second script,
purge-accounts.pywill read in the list of user ids and either close (delete) or lock (disable) the accounts in bulk.
If you have no idea what this is all about, see this post.

So der Pod sollte wieder reibunsfrei laufen. Ich hatte gestern Abend versucht was gegen die Spam-Accounts zu machen und das hat zu sporadischen Server-Fehlern (HTTP Code 500) geführt.
Habe die Änderung erstmal wieder rückgängig gemacht.
Fragean die #diaspora #profis: In der Tabelle "Users" gibt es Spalten, die auf die Möglichkeit einer Email-Validierung hindeuten. In der Config konnte ich aber nix entsprechendes finden. Gibt/Gab/Wird es die Funktion geben ???
We're not sure what the purpose of these accounts is, but they are wasteful of pod resources and clutter up the user lists. As a preventative measure, we have decided to block new signups from the two countries noted above until further notice. We have replaced the signup screen with a page explaining the situation and referring the user to https://podupti.me to choose a different pod.
To be clear, existing users from these countries are welcome and can continue to use our pod, and federation with pods hosted in these countries will still work. This only affects new user registration.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Over the past week, I have locked 5 or 6 new #spam accounts created on my pod, and I have deleted the spam posts created by those accounts. I lock the accounts so that I can keep track of details like IP address and (fake) email address provided at account creation. Closing the account causes these details to be lost.
I wish #diaspora had a better mechanism for detecting andndealing with these nusiances. I don’t know if there is an increase in spam activity on diaspora* in general or if I am just getting hit with higher than normal amounts of it.
I will continue to deal with spam accounts on my pod as I become aware of them. If you happen to see any spam (particularly comment spam) coming from social.antisthenes.org, please report it to me or @Antisthenes* HQ by posting a link in a comment to this post or sending a private message to either account. At a minimum I will continue to lock accounts and delete the spam content. I may also start blocking IP addresses if a discernible pattern emerges.
In the meanwhile, I would appreciate any suggestions you all might have.

And I mean, geez, stuff like this with Facebook just isn’t a surprise anymore, is it? For years social media Big Brother had been pestering its users to secure their account with two-factor authentication (2FA) by prompting them to enter their phone number so they could get a text with a security code login when logging into their account from a new device for the first time.
HINT: Don't give your phone number to any business, they will sell it for a penny.

- Click "Empty Junk" for #spam folder in #Thunderbird while at the same time seeing an #email there that clearly is not.
- All mails disappear.
- Panic 😱
- Grab phone
- Put it in flight mode
- Email still there 😅
- Copy email to inbox
- Profit. Or at least no lost sleep over an email that wasn't after all that important 😁
It makes diaspora pretty much unusable to someone who hasn't spent hours subjecting themselves to the advertising and methodically clicking ignore over and over again. But a few people on diaspora said that they barely ever saw any posts like that at all. So what am I doing wrong, that they send all those posts to my personal pod, but diasp.eu gets none of it?
I also get tons of posts in foreign languages. No idea why they're sending them to me. I only have a few people who were announced as "sharing" with me, all of whom speak English, or uh... got ignored, since I'm looking for more local friends.

Wie fühlt es sich an, tagtäglich als „Bedrohung“ wahrgenommen zu werden? Wie viel Vertrauen besteht nach dem #NSU - Skandal noch in die #Sicherheitsbehörden? Was bedeutet es, sich bei jeder Krise im Namen des gesamten Heimatlandes oder der #Religionszugehörigkeit der Eltern rechtfertigen zu müssen? Und wie wirkt sich #Rassismus auf die #Sexualität aus?
Dieses Buch ist ein #Manifest gegen #Heimat – einem #völkisch verklärten #Konzept, gegen dessen #Normalisierung sich 14 deutschsprachige Autor_innen wehren. Zum einjährigen Bestehen des sogenannten „Heimatministeriums“ sammeln Fatma Aydemir und Hengameh Yaghoobifarah schonungslose Perspektiven auf eine rassistische und antisemitische #Gesellschaft. In persönlichen #Essays geben sie Einblick in ihren Alltag und halten #Deutschland den #Spiegel vor: einem Land, das sich als vorbildliche #Demokratie begreift und gleichzeitig einen Teil seiner Mitglieder als »anders« markiert, kaum schützt oder wertschätzt.
