Hey @diaspora* HQ, I am wondering if this is a temporary issue and I just have poor timing, or is this an ongoing “to be added” feature for sometime in the future? Is this an issue just with this specific Pod, or is it a broader issue throughout the Diaspora fediverse? Thanks for your help.
500 Internal server error. Our bad! Sorry about that. :(

Wer oft über obige Links stolpert: Da betreibt niemand eine blöde Art von Spam, sondern das scheint ein Bug zu sein (Statt Inhalt der Nachricht, wird dieser quarkige Link angezeigt)
Friendica post got mirrored to Twitter here:
Following the link in the Tweet back to Friendica throws a 404 when opening link and not being logged into friendica. This is reproducible.
To me this feels like a bug, as the friendica post is public and to my knowledge unrestricted. Does anybody have an idea, why this is not working? Is it a known problem?
To those whose comments to me, in a post of mine, or anyhow else:
I today was bothered by a bug that automatically created a #newhere - post including all the tags I follow, and didn't mark the recognised notifications as read, as supposed. This went on for the entire day, until a few minutes ago, up to an hour at most. I shortly switched over to my Pluspora-account (you find it in my biography, it's my backup account in case I should permanently leave this account here), to share some of the news I read in the meantime. Now, I'm back here again, but as it seems, some of my comments have disappeared, putting me back to a status quo ante. I don't know in which form it also affected my posts, but I am sorry to anyone who will inadvertently be ignored by me regarding the comments or whatever. It's not my intention, nor my fault, but since it would endure too much time which I am not ready to reinvest just because of technical difficulties, but I hope that henceforth, it will all work properly as before.
Thanks for your understanding.
PS: If you are looking for the posts you may have missed, check out my Telegram channels or my Pluspora backup account. I will not share them here again, since I am too lazy, tired, and annoyed by things I don't understand due to a lack of understanding of IT-affiliated concerns. 😁

Teen hacker Santiago Lopez from Argentina has become the world’s first white-hat hacker to earn a million dollars from bug bounties.
Lopez a.k.a @try_to_hack (his online moniker) started flagging up security weaknesses to companies via vulnerability coordination and bug bounty platform, HackerOne.
Since embarking on his legal hacking career in 2015, he has reported more than 1,600 security flaws to organisations, including social media platform Twitter and Verizon Media Company, as well as private corporate and government entities.
Inspired by the movie Hackers, Lopez taught himself how to hack watching free online tutorials and reading popular blogs.
At the age of 16 he earned his first bounty of $50 and was motivated to continued hacking after school. He now hacks full-time earning nearly 40 times the average software engineer salary in Buenos Aires.

White-hat hackers like Lopez can earn funds through bug bounties, which is a cash reward given to a hacker who reports a valid security weakness to a company. Offering bug bounties is rapidly becoming a popular way for organisations to identify vulnerabilities that expose them to cyber attacks.
Numerous global companies including the US Department of Defense, General Motors, Google, Twitter, GitHub, Nintendo, Lufthansa, Panasonic Avionics, Qualcomm, Starbucks, Dropbox, and Intel have partnered with HackerOne to discover more than 100,000 vulnerabilities and award more than $45m (£34m) in bug bounties.
Luta Security CEO and cybersecurity expert, Katie Moussouris, said that bug bounties although useful weren’t a “silver bullet”. Moussouris, who created the bug bounty at Microsoft, warned that if badly implemented such programmes could see talent leaving organisations in favour of pursuing bug bounties, and thus damage the talent pipeline.
Commenting on his success, Lopez said, “to me, this achievement represents that companies and the people that trust them are becoming more secure than they were before, and that is incredible. This is what motivates me to continue to push myself and inspires me to get my hacking to the next level.”

HackerOne CEO Marten Mickos, said of Lopez, “the entire HackerOne community stands in awe of Santiago’s work. Curious, self-taught and creative, Santiago is a role model for hundreds of thousands of aspiring hackers around the world.
“The hacker community is the most powerful defence we have against cybercrime. This is a fantastic milestone for Santiago, but much greater are the improvements in security that companies have achieved and keep achieving thanks to Santiago’s relentless work.”
HackerOne’s latest report revealed that it has now paid out more than $42m (£31.7m) to hackers for 93,000 bug bounties, and that white-hat hacker earnings in 2018 totalled $19m (£14.3), up from $9.3m (£7m) in 2017.
Luke Tucker, senior director of community and content at HackerOne, said of this growth: “With the frequency of cyber attacks swelling to new highs, companies and government organisations are realising that to protect themselves online, they need an army of highly skilled and creative individuals on their side – hackers. As more organisations embrace the hacker community, the safer customers and citizens become.”

A bug in Comcast’s router and modem activation process potentially exposed the private data of millions of customers who rented hardware from the company.

#HackerNews #activation #bug #comcasts #customers #data #exposed #potentially #private #process
Millions of consumers continue to pay cable companies like Comcast a monthly fee to rent a modem or gateway (a combination modem and WiFi router)—and Comcast keeps proving thatʼs a really bad idea.
From the company’s arbitrary and unnecessary broadband caps and overage fees to all manner of sneaky below-the-line surcharges, Comcast has made an art form of advertising one price, then socking consumers with significantly higher rates once the bill comes due. As a result, the company is facing several ongoing lawsuits for misleading billing.
One of the most profitable surcharges for America’s biggest cable provider is the fee it charges users to rent a modem, router, or gateway. Comcast has slowly but surely jacked up this rental fee over the years. After yet another price hike at the beginning of 2018, Comcast now charges customers $11 a month to rent both modems and gateways.
Over time, users wind up paying Comcast significantly more money than the modem or router is worth. One analyst estimated that Comcast makes between $275 million and $300 million each and every quarter just from these rental fees. And given that Comcast buys hardware in bulk, it’s estimated the company pays as little as $40 for each modem.
Those turned off by Comcast’s reputation as one of the least liked companies in America should do themselves (or a loved one) a favor and stop unnecessarily padding the company’s bottom line.
While the company doesn’t like to advertise the option, users have the ability to buy their own modem or router, provided it’s on the company’s list of acceptable devices known to play nice with the Comcast network (the same is true for Charter Spectrum.) Many of these devices can be bought for a pittance via online retailers, and even less if acquired second hand.
Unsurprisingly, Comcast’s historically abysmal customer service can sometimes make this more challenging than it should be. For example, the company has long had a nasty habit of charging users the rental fee even if they own their own modem, requiring users keep an eye on their bill.

Apple has a serious, apparently unresolved bug that causes issues with all audio performance with external devices across all its latest Macs, thanks to the company’s own software and custom security chip. The only good news: there is a workaround.
Following bug reports online, the impacted machines are all the newest computers – those with Apple’s own T2 security chip:
* iMac Pro * Mac mini models introduced in 2018 * MacBook Air models introduced in 2018 * MacBook Pro models introduced in 2018
The T2 in Apple’s words “is Apple’s second-generation, custom silicon for Mac. By redesigning and integrating several controllers found in other Mac computers—such as the System Management Controller, image signal processor, audio controller, and SSD controller—the T2 chip delivers new capabilities to your Mac.”
The problem is, it appears that this new chip has introduced glitches on a wide variety of external audio hardware from across the pro audio industry, thanks to a bug in Apple’s software. When your Mac updates its system clock, dropouts and glitches appear in the audio stream. (Any hardware with a non-default clock source appears to be impacted. It’s a good bet that any popular external audio interface may exhibit the problem.)
The workaround is fairly easy: switch off “Set date and time automatically” in System Preferences.
But more alarming is that this is another serious quality control fumble from Apple. The value proposition with Apple always been that the company’s control over its own hardware, software, and industrial engineering meant a more predictable product. But when Apple botches the quality of its own products and doesn’t test creative audio and video use cases, that value case quickly flips. You’re sacrificing choice and paying a higher price for a product that’s actually worse.
It’s also a cause for concern that here it appears Apple may have lacked a test regimen that would have uncovered the problem with their code.
Apple’s recent Mac line have also come under fire for charging a premium price while sacrificing things users want (like NVIDIA graphics cards, affordable internal storage, or extra ports). And on the new thin MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, keyboard reliability issues.
Before Windows users start gloating, of course, PCs can have reliability issues of their own. They’re just distributed across a wider range of vendors – which is part of the reason some musicians sought out Apple in the first place.
But it’s also a cause for concern that here it appears Apple may have lacked a test regimen that would have uncovered the problem with their code. Some of those mainstream PC vendors do now test with third-party pro audio hardware (I’ve talked to Razer about this, for instance). And that’s to say nothing of vendors like pcaudiolabs who custom-configure each machine for the actual DAWs. Apple clearly has the resources to do the same, and they make a DAW of their own (Logic Pro). This appears to be an issue they could possibly have reproduced and corrected before shipping.
Updated: The 2018 iPad Pro also suffered from audio issues, which appear to be software related. This seems not to have any direct relation to the issue with the Mac line, but is further evidence of some quality control and testing issues involving real-time audio performance and Apple firmware and software.
Regardless, Apple needs to test and address these kinds of issues. Apple’s iPad Pro line is strong and essentially unchallenged because of its unique software ecosystem and poor low-cost PC or Android tablet options. But the Mac has to compete with increasingly impressive PC laptops and desktop machines at low costs, and a Windows operating system that has improved its audio plumbing (to say nothing of the fact that Linux now lets you run tools like Bitwig Studio and VCV Rack). And that’s why competition is a good thing – you might be happier with a different choice.
Anyway, if you do have one of these machines, let us know if you’ve been having trouble with this issue and if this workaround (hopefully) solves your problem.

(Reuters) - Apple Inc on Thursday rolled out software updates to iPhones to fix a privacy issue in its FaceTime video calling service, and said it would contribute toward the education of the Arizona teenager who discovered the problem.
The software bug, which had let users hear audio from people who had not yet answered a video call, was discovered by a Tucson, Arizona high school student Grant Thompson, who with his mother Michele led Apple to turn off FaceTime group chat as its engineers investigated the issue.
The technology giant said it would compensate the Thompson family and make an additional gift toward 14-year-old Grant’s education.
Apple also formally credited Thompson and Daven Morris from Arlington, Texas in the release notes to its latest iPhone software update.
“In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security,” Apple said in a statement.
Two key U.S. House of Representatives Democrats on Tuesday asked Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook to answer questions about the bug, saying they were “deeply troubled” over how long it took Apple to address the security flaw.
The company said last week it was planning to improve how it handles reports of software bugs.
