>he isn't Marxist - Leninist - Maoist - Stallmanist ngmi You know that Stallman is basically essential to understand if you want to liberate the working class of today. He teaches us to take our digital means of production, and it can be taken a step further when applying his thought to Free and Open Source hardware designs. Read Free Software, Free Society Then to take it to the hardware level, check out the Open Source Ecology project: https://www.ted.com/talks/marcin_jakubowski_open_sourced_blueprints_for_civilization?utm_source=tedcomshare&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=tedspread THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT PROJECT FOR THE REVOLUTION but it's never being talked about >The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts. We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made at a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free.

>>3863 >He was however kicked out at this time not because of his controversial statements, which he has a ton of him, but because of his views in regards to tech and law. obviously this why do people have such a hard time wrapping their head around the concept that people use sex-stuff as pretext for persecuting people for their political views.

>>3746 Wrong (primary) question; the first question is "which support E2E encryption" - this and other such details can be toggled here: https://matrix.org/clients-matrix/ With this in mind >which has the least bloat I'd assume weechat-matrix
>>3747 why does only Riot support voip?
>>3748 Because its definition in the Matrix standard is still experimental. Also because it's currently reliant on WebRTC, which relies on web bloat. There is currently an early effort by nheko Reborn (the only truly native client that [mostly] supports E2EE) to implement VOIP without WebRTC, probably using GStreamer: https://github.com/Nheko-Reborn/nheko/issues/109#issuecomment-610607467
>>3746 I use gomuks. Encryption isn't currently supported, though. Unfortunately.
I'll just keep using Element/Riot until Fractal enters beta/stable (has E2EE & VoIP support).

Federated Imageboard Technology Comrade 07/29/2020 (Wed) 03:30:07 No. 3680 [Reply] [Last]
I've been thinking of Mastodon lately and the idea of federation. I've also been thinking of gochan and the efforts here on /tech/ to develop a new chan based on golang. One thing that is learn is that the chaniverse, the 'alt chan' community is declining. Instead of writing yet another chan, something new needs to happen: A common protocol or interface which defines server to server and frontend-to-server operates. This protocol would be defined as JSON endpoints, possibly extended off the already existing 4chan api which is read only. Normal federation is based off of following individual users (see activitypub protocol), whereas this would be based off following boards/topics. The frontend-to server api definition would be there so that mobile clients etc can be made that are standardized, allows SPAs and mobile clients to use it while also providing an optional server-side rendered version for browsers, in case people don't want the javascript of an SPA. Also it would allow everyone to write their own chan software while having it all interoperate with a wider universe of alt chans. The same restrictions of mastodon (ex: blocking certain other instances) could also apply. The only think I think would be needed was individual accounts/registrations so that individual users could follow boards on other sites and it wouldn't have to replicate more than necessary what does everyone think? I am i missing any details? is this a good idea?

>>3680 I haven't kept up with any of this, but just wondering why golang? What is inadequate about the other languages in which imageboards are implemented and why would an implementation in golang improve on them? Sorry for the only very tangentially related question.
>>3688 golang is a compiled language so presumably performance will be better. most imageboards were historically written in php although obviously lynxchan was written in javascript In reality it's not that big of a difference imo

>>3753 nntpchan is based on the nntp protocol which was a usenet protocol from the 90s. Modern architectural practices should be used instead through standard (restful JSON endpoints) like every other web app made after 2010 and mastodon >inb4 "nntp is better than modern architecture" >inb4 "oh, so you want it to be less secure and less anon then?". This is the fucking problem with imageboard /tech/ and /g/ boards its full of fucking pseuds. Yes obviously JSON based microservices are bad which is why every multi billion dollar FAANG company and startup, what with their world level technology and advanced engineering degrees, are wrong, but you, some rando on /g/ who sells belts at the mall for a living knows that the REAL solution is NNTP protocol and scheme and whatever Richard Stallman thought was cool in the 90s. The problem with imageboards and the internet in general is it falsely equalizes pseuds to non pseuds from the perspective of bystanders who don't know enough to tell who's full of shit
>>3754 man what point is there in being this aggressive? this is such a bizarrely hotheaded reaction that I wonder if the creator of NNTPchan stole your girlfriend in high school or something. just chill dude, and quit making fun of my belt-selling business it has really picked up on aliexpress lately.

GRUB2 pwned through UEFI exploit Comrade 07/30/2020 (Thu) 07:02:03 No. 3737 [Reply] [Last]
Yet another gaping security flaw has been found in the Microsoft Trojan Horse replacement for BIOS known as UEFI. This one affects GRUB2 bootloaders in particular. https://eclypsium.com/2020/07/29/theres-a-hole-in-the-boot/ Eclypsium researchers have discovered a vulnerability — dubbed “BootHole” — in the GRUB2 bootloader utilized by most Linux systems that can be used to gain arbitrary code execution during the boot process, even when Secure Boot is enabled. Attackers exploiting this vulnerability can install persistent and stealthy bootkits or malicious bootloaders that could give them near-total control over the victim device. The vulnerability affects systems using Secure Boot, even if they are not using GRUB2. Almost all signed versions of GRUB2 are vulnerable, meaning virtually every Linux distribution is affected. In addition, GRUB2 supports other operating systems, kernels and hypervisors such as Xen. The problem also extends to any Windows device that uses Secure Boot with the standard Microsoft Third Party UEFI Certificate Authority. Thus the majority of laptops, desktops, servers and workstations are affected, as well as network appliances and other special purpose equipment used in industrial, healthcare, financial and other industries. This vulnerability makes these devices susceptible to attackers such as the threat actors recently discovered using malicious UEFI bootloaders.
can you give a practical summary for us jocks? half the time i hear about such vulnerabilities it turns out the attacker needs physical access to your machine and 3 inches of his dick in your mouth as a prerequisite to the exploit. do normies actually need to worry about this?
>>3738 Basically this vulnerability requires root / admin access to access the grub.cfg file located in the EFI System Partition, which means the attacker must first gain a foothold on the system and escalate privileges (physical access also works). The vuln only helps with persistence across system reboots, so it’s unnecessary — and perilously noisy — for attackers to employ this if they already have root on a system that never reboots. In other words, protect your system from privilege escalation attacks and prevent evil maids in hotel rooms from physically accessing your machine and you protect yourself from this. Also you should laugh at anyone who has ever relied upon Secure Boot to protect themselves, a "feature" that has been broken by design since its inception.
>>3738 it has a catchy name and a logo that means it is scary
>>3739 >Basically this vulnerability requires root / admin access You're already beyond fucked at that point anyway. There are more important vuls discovered all the time that either escalate the privileges or gain access to the system over network in the first place. But most of them are so specific that there's very little chance you'll get hit if you update your system, even if takes a month for the fix to arrive in your repos.

can't block twitter Comrade 07/29/2020 (Wed) 17:28:18 No. 3707 [Reply] [Last]
I'm trying to block websites using the Windows 10 hosts.txt so I can focus on my schoolwork but it doesn't work. I'm able to block bunkerchan and 4chan, but not twitter. when I type twitter.com into the address bar it just opens the page, even when I have DNS over HTTPS turned off. what the fuck is up? pic related, it's my current hosts.txt
Have you tried to flush your dns?
Win10 is fucked, this must be some built in safety "feature" to prevent DNS hijacking of normie websites. Fuck microsoft.
>>3707 Remember to add both twitter.com and www.twitter.com, and flush your dns and browser caches W10 is ass fucked anyway, you could do a pihole or something to block twitter there but maybe if you're serious about avoiding time syncs like twitter this shit is easier in Linux :^)
