Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence
“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”
Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…
Toot 1.1 is finally out! It is, as usual, available on the App Store.
If you have it already, you should see an update soon!
Additionally to the vulnerabilities discussed here , there are two other vulnerabilities fixed in Mastodon 2.5.2:
– nokogiri (1.8.5)
– XSS vulnerability
The remaining question: How many instances are vulnerable this time and remain vulnerable for weeks/months?
It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!
For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!
It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!
In August, Mastodon 2.4.4 was released which contains two fixes for security vulnerabilities.
Today, 39.5% of all Mastodon instances which show their version number are still running vulnerable Mastodon < 2.4.4.
We already checked this twice:
– 10/1/18: 42% vulnerable
– 8/23/18: 38.6% vulnerable
Either the remaining instances are all unmaintained or admins refuse to update.
...at least it's consistent. 2 out of 2! Again the display in the ICE gets stuck. 227km/h displayed while we are waiting in a station 🤦🏻♂️ #deutschebahn https://social.bankmann.name/media/DYOEfi1FkRu0PUE55Zo
Google translate and lockers apparently became self aware and are now fighting money-making schemes at museums! 🤣 https://social.bankmann.name/media/7O7tbRyBomhVRmMa9ug
And of course why should the order of the trains on the sign match the order or the trains on the tracks... 🤷♂️
Ahh, nothing like Deutsche Bahn...
One display shows nothing, the other the wrong train number and 156km/h while sitting in a train station. 👍 https://social.bankmann.name/media/o2Ch1NP9WKJngkq72wI

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.
We're going to live in a very weird world man.
Our golden age ended on September 11th, 2001. The day we decided to make fear our ultimate ruler, when we succumbed to the false promises of safety in exchange for liberty, when we chose to rate our believes higher than our knowledge, when we started to reject the stranger instead of welcoming him and when we turned our eyes from the future towards the past.

This is a private Mastodon instance. Federates with anyone but does not accept new users.
