Ex-student records himself using USB Killer to fry college computers....A USB Killer isn’t your granddad’s USB thumb drive. It is an adapted device that can fry an entire computer. Instead of a flash memory chip, its innards contain capacitors and a DC-DC converter that alters the voltage level of a direct current. This is a deadly combination for your average USB port, along with anything attached to it.

FBI agent explains how Julian Assange may escape prosecution. And Chelsea Manning is key. | The Canary

An FBI agent has made it clear that, regarding charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, further testimony from whistleblower Chelsea Manning will be critical to achieving a successful prosecution. Because if Manning keeps refusing to testify to the courts, the US prosecution against Assange would be seriously harmed, if not jeopardised. The agent also questioned the viability of key evidence that could be raised against Assange.

French government releases in-house IM app named Tchap to replace WhatsApp and Telegram use - the app is based on Riot a well-known open-source, self-hostable, and secure instant messaging client-server package


The French government has developed its own end-to-end encrypted instant messenger (IM) app to replace government employee use of Telegram, WhatsApp, and other third-party IM clients.

The app, named Tchap, was launched yesterday, April 18, and is available on the official iOS and Android app stores. A web dashboard is also in the works.

Only official French government employees can sign-up for an account; however, the French government also open-sourced Tchap's source code on GitHub so other organizations can roll out their own versions of Tchap for internal use as well.

The app was officially developed by DINSIC (Interministerial Directorate of Digital and Information System and Communication of the State), under the supervision of ANSSI, France's National Cybersecurity Agency.

The French government plans to enforce Tchap use for any informal communications between government employees, agencies, and some (carefully selected) non-government entities and civilians. The general idea is to keep government communications flowing through internal servers, and... show more

We need to choose either #security or #surveillance.
Fuck surveillance.

Quoting a recent post from Bruce Schneier:
Either everyone gets to spy, or no one gets to spy. And I believe we must choose security over surveillance, and implement a defense-dominant strategy.

Users may also switch to uBlock Origin. It does not support the $rewrite filter option and it is not vulnerable to the described attack.

A new version of Adblock Plus was released on July 17, 2018. Version 3.2 introduced a new filter option for rewriting requests. A day later AdBlock followed suit and released support for the new filter option. uBlock, being owned by AdBlock, also implemented the feature.

Under certain conditions the $rewrite filter option enables filter list maintainers to inject arbitrary code in web pages.

The affected extensions have more than 100 million active users, and the feature is trivial to exploit in order to attack any sufficiently complex web serv
