A non-technical article about Bluetooth tracking everywhere:


– tracking relies on BT beacons and certain apps on your phone
– NYT recommends the Beacon Scanner app to detect beacons around you and using tracking-free apps from app stores like F-Droid

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

Big props to @omgubuntu and @protonmail for putting Mastodon links on their website templates alongside their centralised social media links (see attachments) :blobcheer:

This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍

If you have a Fediverse account, please do mention it on your website! The more people see these icons, the more comfortable they will be finding out more.

Interessanter Ansatz zum Thema Algorithmen in den grossen sozialen Netzen.


Hat auch Bezug zur Diskussion hier im Fediverse, ob die Zahl der Likes/Favs erkennbar sein soll oder nicht...

“Biometrie: Hacker kopieren Zehntausende Fotos von USA-Reisenden - SPIEGEL ONLINE” spiegel.de/netzwelt/web/hacker Daten, die erhoben werden, können auch gehackt werden. Deswegen IT-Security by Design PLUS Durchsetzung Datenminimierung PLUS Zurückhaltung bei gesetzlichen Vorgaben

@thomasfuchs Makes me think: do Win95 and Win98 still get infected a few minutes after being on the net without patches or have people finally left them behind? 😀

Auf Betreiben von #FinTech und @GCHQ@twitter.com hat @ETSI_STANDARDS@twitter.com versucht, in die Transportverschlüsselung TLS 1.3 eine Hintertür einzubauen. Als das nicht gelang, machte #ETSI daraus einen eigenen Standard: #ETS. Das ist der #BBA19-Jury 1 #BigBrotherAward wert.

Vermutlich war es nur eine Frage der Zeit...

(Gleichzeitig schöne Werbung für Mozilla's deepvoice. Hat das schonmal jemand mit openhab kombiniert?)

Amazons "Alexa" als Zeugin?. Staat will "Smart Home"-Daten abgreifen.

Mit der Beschneidung der Chrome-API für Werbeblocker nutzt Google seine quasi Monopolstellung auf dem Browser-Markt aus. Die Antwort kann nur sein: Weg von Chrome und weg von Google. Deren Produkte existieren nur, um die Nutzer zu melken.

@fribbledom So the day has finally come...

Really makes you wonder what this is supposed to be useful for. Let's assume it is not to check whether individuals are dangerous or involved in crimes because no one would be moronic enough to provide such incriminating info in an online visa form.

Also, assuming that the US govt isn't paying an army of people reading social media feeds of applicants, we can assume they just match it against an existing database of ranked user profiles...

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled is how JavaScript got 100x more complex from 2009 to 2019 and yet web apps look exactly the same, except that they’re often slower now.

– obviously, the Nitrokey Start wasn't protected
– owners should update their firmware to release RTM.7 or above
