two step wordpress security farce

Filed under: 900-pri-vacy — Sagacious Himself @ 12:51 am

Nothing says secure like sms, huh?

#deleteSMS

WordPress offers jabber notifications. Why is there no jabber 2FA?

There is no sms facility on my phones. All other frippery removed as well.

When will you cease being technology ingrates?

step 1 tell us your mobile number so we can correlate your id to your account for your mafia style protection

no

step 2 is now irrelevant

 

why cannot step 1 be tOTP token configuration? Github gets this right.

Little Bins for Little Hands.com  is written by someone either in need of medication or extended time in a grammer re-education center.  Aside from the irksome, easily circumvented adblock-blocking it is otherwise irritating to find a succint article having been overloaded with self referrential linkspam.

Eventually the site offers a FREE ebook with popular recipies.  Being skeptical I usually feed such things Disposable Email Addresses from free services – to protect myself from spam and the unethical.  The vast majority of people blocking DEA domains are the very people from which people need safeguarding!  I digress.  You’ll notice the generate credit card tab.  It’s used for those sites offering something free which ‘only need a credit card that won’t be charged’.  Yeah, right.

at long last, a tool to help onboard sheeple into Jabber Texting: XMPP compliance tester (accepts user submissions without github pull fun)

Filed under: 170914,bookmarkified,CIO — Sagacious Himself @ 7:45 am
Tags: ,

https://compliance.conversations.im/ [github project]

Have them pick a server near the top with an all-green row.  Tolerance can be extended to

  • servers with a red mark in the XEP-0398 column (far right)
  • XEP-0368 deficiency (third from right) can be overcome with manual client hostname specification

Any other red marks renders it an unacceptable social selection.

And now there are some excellent forks of Conversations with superb enhancements

aTalk ambitiously folds in Jitsi (libjitsi;WebRTC) secure video calling, and SIP.  Pix-Art Messenger [renaming it github discussion] is mostly inline with the UI aesthetic but focuses on sociability ‘out of the box’.  Jabber Texting without presence whatnots is of little value.  InputMice is destroying ‘status’ through feature erosion.  Pix-Art Messenger is preserving automatic status.  Other than LONG extended away I see little use for manual status as few will know to seek the text from the colorized availability.  I do miss mood PEP.  Plug-in?

Additionally a Conversations-Jitsi hybrid to watch evolve.

Give some kudos , suggestions, solicit features, or ask questions in the Conversations MUC:

conversations@conference.siacs.eu

Conversations recommends Gajim for windows.  I recommend Psi+ for windows.  For MacOS I plan to recommend Dino.  Monal has some OMEMO capability now.  ZOM is still an adventure few sheeple with enjoy.  ChatSecure has created numerous problems for friends with older iPhones.

If only Jabber Texting apps would cease offering substandard servers for onboarding registration. Ugh.

“Hey, I installed that app you like”

“Oh, my, that’s a horrible server choice”

don’t drown in wordpress  notifications. A mere decade after requesting better Jabber Texting functionality wordpress adds a bit more Jabber Texting integration

https://en.support.wordpress.com/jabber/

Will it pass XMPP compliance testing? Let’s create a new account for submission [todo]

https://compliance.conversations.im

replaces

https://conversations.im/compliance

 

the new instance accepts user test requests submissions once provided with credentials. Now if only the conversations forks (most notably Pix-Art Messenger) could be convinced to offer ONLY 100% green servers we could be happy letting Jabber Texting converts pick any fqdn they fancied.

ZOM gets an F minus for its suggested server list.  Home.zom.im is nearly the worstest [sic].

mastodon is infested with the TWITer mindset: intellectual tyranny

Filed under: backtardwards — Sagacious Himself @ 8:37 pm

mastdon: the twitter killer?

Not so much it appears.

Twitter is the one ‘instance’ in mastodon parlance.

Any cretinous fop can setup an instance for his island utopia safe space allowing the public to register so long as they keep their head down not running afoul of boilerplate ToS language typically including PCBS.  Yeah, big improvement over twitter.  Same secret trial [shadow] banning.

This intellectual tyranny has been extended into retaliatory blacklisting.  I kid you not, the first category for the blacklist was “allows free speech”.

There are two realms of Mastodon:

  • those who are not mentally impaired who understand the role of free expression and can wield their local app tools to ignore undesirables
  • those who delusionally invest in “safe” spaces, echo chambers, and lockstep ideological instances who block an entire instance for failing to delete a single user who gives offense to any user in their little hegemony.

Find an instance of the former like

FreeSpeech.host

keeping in mind their adult-minded policies will leave your posts unseen by the majority, those trapped on instances run by Magical Thinkers (like mastodon.host, birb.site, toot.cat, chinwag.org) or radical Moralphobes (like cybre.space, nulled.red, dragon.style).

freespeech.host rational rules are unpopular with magical thinkers

I have run dozens of puppet accounts each with a unique persona to test a wide variety of public servers from naively popular to niche.  Like twitter people can post into the public sphere.  They can post to their followers, to followers and the mentioned, or unlisted (not shown in feeds). However a follower can boost (rt) a toot allowing that account’s respective followers to view a toot.  This is problematic as that toot can be from a cretinous fop, magical thinker, or radical moralphobe, or worse.  One or two interactions with that person is oft deemed harassment by both that user and that user’s instance-admin.  One is left with having feces rubbed in one’s face through a feed and unable to respond civilly or satirically without high risk of account deletion.  Block them you say?  Sure, but a boosted toot from a user one has blocked is shown nonetheless.

Mastodon is buggy.

Mastodon attracts intolerant, close minded, hate-spewing bigots:  the hypocrites who incorrectly wield these words.

If you want civil discourse with people different from yourself perhaps the best course is to find them in coffee shops and grocery stores where there is no anonymous report button that removes you from existence by secret trial.

If I use mastodon again it will be from my own instance.  I will have an autoresponder to re-educate people mashing report from their instance.  “Dude, learn how to adult.  Block people yourself.” or somesuch.  I will be less forgiving of their fake-phobia claims.  No, I will not pretend a man is a woman.  This is antiscience.  This is not any kind of phobia.  Yes, this is intolerance. I am intolerant of grave evil masquerading as the truth.  I am intolerant of Brown Shirt behavior.

My instance will rapidly find it on all the blacklists popular with magical thinkers.

If you don’t much care for truth, justice, or righteousness mastodon might be a good fit for you.

Not going to charge me? You’re right because the numbers will be fictitious.  Trust AFTER verifying

https://names.igopaygo.com/credit-card

For the dim: this isn’t fraud.

Find a site that generates a card, csv, date, and validates bin (NII+2)

If the site is checking only validity and NOT running any transaction this will work.

TWITter is NOT-federated wall.  No.

Join us in this millennium with federated blathering:  mastodon.  Run your own instance to be as tyrannical as mastodon.social, or as open minded as mastodon.blue or as open minded as FreeSpeech.host, or as cutting edge as chinwag.org

Stop dumping your sole into a single platform as profitable chattel.

Grow up. Demand group end-to-end encryption from your mastodon client application!

Jabber Texting is federated. you won’t have your account deleted for offending a mental wuss.

Mastodon is federated.  You are likely to have your account deleted for any reason whatsoever.  Do run your own instance.

Merry Holy Christmas: the end of third party interweb ads forever

Filed under: 170914 — Sagacious Himself @ 12:26 pm

I have been keeping this to myself for some time.  Blocking ads.  It is a right by extension from privacy itself derived from dignity — granted by God.

  • reduce data costs
  • speed page load
  • sacrosanct privacy

FDQN.

problem: Sneaky platforms use wildcards or psuedo-random domains.

solution:  RegEx DNSMASQ

IP addresses

problem: seemingly innumerable

solution: netblock

 

The final solution: ASN

If an IP address is like a house, then ASN is like a plot of land in which neighborhoods of houses may be built.  I can eliminate ads before/as an ad platform builds out sneaky architecture.

bad guy SHORT term solution:  create one-off IP addresses outside know ASN

arms race solution:  by attrition a new ASN is identified and blocked

I win.  I win again.  More winning for everyone.

worse charity than clinton foundation?

humble bundle happy hour? Unhappy malware

Filed under: Antibargain,Geeky goodness — Sagacious Himself @ 6:02 pm
Tags: ,

humble bundle employs GameSessions DRM for its “happy” hour, the exact opposite of what we have come to expect from the Humble Bundle experience.

 whilst the DRM ensures publishers are happy to let us supply gamers with their latest and greatest games for free.

Take a moment to flood-ask them about their evil drm then submit these malware samples to helpers like avast.

Keep an eye out for “special offers” inside the game.  This smacks of the “open” candy malware fiasco.

overlays will appear during the trial

During the trial, we use in-game messaging to show hints and tips to help you get the most out of the game, as well as the chance to provide feedback [which break screen capture]

GameSessions is less than forthcoming about how this strong drm works, at what non-monetary cost to the user, or the sketchy malware seeming inclusions in trials.  Beware: GameSessions uses blink links as affiliate URLs [to humble bundle].  Be sure to wipe cookies prior to HB purchase.  Death to affiliate urls.

good fun with fingerprint scanner on my Note4 developer edition — removing backup password

Filed under: circumvention,Geeky goodness — Sagacious Himself @ 1:19 am

I still run 4.4.4 because all the tools I want play nicely on it; I’m not missing out on “updates” with ota crippled and #PrivacyRape removed.

Last night the phone inexplicably didn’t show fingerprint option on lock screen after sitting on about a week which is nothing unusual instead prompting for a ‘backup password’ that while I remembered it the phone did not agree I was correct.

Short version fix assumes root and adb enabled

while booted to recovery

remove from /data/system

*.key

lock*.*

reboot

 

Long version fix involves explanations, reading lists, backups.

I immediately thought of REM on hearing the show’s theme song.  With a bit of time I won’t invest the theme could be monkeyed down to the timing of the rem song for a fun harmonic overlay.

Since it was aired on a public channel feel free to download from usenet without moral- or legal detriment.
