And i think this is a good option to do this

To format your "Ãusb", use dd:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx

change sdx to your interface.
If you are paranoid about your system being infected, you should reinstall your system and reflash your BIOS...
But since you don't know how to use dd to format a disk, you probably have many other security problems that doesn't include your friend's software. Encrypt your disk if you want more security/privacy.

How difficult would it be to archive clearweb webpages onto an onion website?Zeronet? I2P? Not using or from tor rather making a tor-based clearweb archive? That would be ideal for the archival of information to diversify.It is a natural response to the increasing allowence to censor news based on subjective standards of credibility.

that's not such a bad idea actually, but you'd have to specify which websites you want to archive, because you can't just scrap the whole clearnet and put it in an onion archive

Can Foreign Governments Hack Americans With Impunity?

Posted by: DividedBy0 February 21, 2017

A lawsuit being heard by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit seeks to answer the question of whether foreign governments can hack Americans with impunity. In the case of Kidane v. Ethiopia, lawyers for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the law firm of Jones Day and Robins Kaplan are representing a man from Maryland, who is going by the pseudonym of Mr. Kidane, in a lawsuit where Mr. Kidane alleges the government of Ethiopia infected his computer with spyware. The lawsuit alleges that the secret malware, known as FinSpy, allowed the government of Ethiopia to conduct wiretaps on his Skype calls and monitor everything he and his family did on the computer for a period that lasted months. The court has allowed the man to use a pseudonym that he had used in the Ethiopian community, because the Ethiopian government has a history of punishing the family members of people who dare to oppose it. Mr. Kidane was born in Ethiopia and moved to the United States 20 years ago, where he sought asylum and became an American citizen. Kidane became infected with the spyware after he opened a Word document that was sent to him by agents of the Ethiopian government. After opening the document, FinSpy was secretly downloaded onto his computer from a server with an IP address located in Ethiopia. All activities, including Skype calls, keystrokes, passwords, e-mails, chats, and web browsing was monitored, recorded, and uploaded to a command and control server with an IP address located in Ethiopia and controlled by the Ethiopian government. FinSpy is developed and marketed by FinFisher, formerly known as Gamma International, a company based in the United Kingdom. It is part of a line of “IT intrusion” software made by FinFisher, which are only sold to government agencies. Their software is frequently used to spy on activists around the world. Kidane continues his lawsuit, which is being appealed. Recently, attorneys for Mr. Kidane argued before a 3 judge panel that the lawsuit should be allowed to continue. Under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, foreign governments are only liable for acts committed within the United States. Kidane’s attorneys argued that his computer was located in Maryland and remained there the entire time it was being spied upon. Attorneys for Ethiopia argued that they should not be held liable because they did not have a human agent who was physically located within the United States. One of the judges on the panel asked the attorneys representing Ethiopia if they believed that they could be held liable for mailing a letter bomb to the United States, or for remotely hacking a self driving car in the United States and causing it to crash. The attorneys for Ethiopia responded to the judge’s question by saying that they believed they could not be sued for such actions. Kidane was spied on from at least late October of 2012 until March of 2013. The lawsuit was originally filed in February of 2014. Previously in the case, a federal court ruled that foreign governments could not be held liable for wiretapping American citizens within the United States. The DC Circuit Court is expected to rule on the appeal within a few months.

If you are an American, you can thank these two senators (John Mccain and Fritz Hollings) for censoring a large portion of the internet and preventing people from gaining knowledge and learning.

>"Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program unless they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures. The protection measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). Before adopting this Internet safety policy, schools and libraries must provide reasonable notice and hold at least one public hearing or meeting to address the proposal."

It is because of them that filtering software such as IBoss exists and why schools have google integrated within their computers to force students to use their services and to use a filtered search.

I'm not for censorship but i get what he's saying, school networks are for school and not for playing games, watching porn etc. And the reason why they force students to use Chrome is likely that the lazy admin isn't foolish enough to require users to use IE, and makes use of Windows GPO to set up stuff like proxies and custom certificates (Chrome uses Windows' settings, Firefox doesn't trust Windows and has its own way of configuring this).

Endware is a suite of programs geared towards internet privacy, security, and anonymity.

Endwall: is an iptables based firewall script designed to be implemented on any linux distribution shipped with iptables. is based on default drop policies, coupled with a novel strategy of passing packets on local host ports only for those enabled by the enduser. It comes with a variety of well used ports enabled with several additional port passing configurations available by uncommenting the script. It provides essential security to a new user.

Endsets: is a script that adds blacklisting and whitelisting functionality to It depends on the program ipset. It is persistent on reboot if you enable ipset as a service. This is the recommended blacklisting tool for endwall if you are running a server or planning on opening up ports and services to the public and will require daily blacklisting of new incomming IPs.

Endlists: is a traditional text file list based blacklisting and whitelisting script. It has slow performance, and can't be updated on the fly. Good for <1000 ip subnets, very tedious and slow to run for more than that. Blocks the IPs by adding them as individual rules to the iptables ruleset. Works but not recommended for heavy duty on a server. May be useful for workstation use to block ip ranges if you are not opening up ports and services to public clients.

Endtools: endtools are a collection of scripts including,, and These scripts will help to service an enduser of endwall in adminstering endsets/endlists. is a geoiplookup script written in python and requires python and pygeoip. It has simmilar functionality to maxmind's geoiplookup program and uses the maxmind *.dat files. is a script that searches through log files to find flagged log entries flagged in, and is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of an apache http server's log output. is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of a postfix smtp server's log output.

can you make a batch renaming script that replaces `\|, characters into _ or - to also become an integral part of Some of the crappy file names that I save lots of images into tend to break somehow. Also, if there's more than one . in the filename, it ignores any other . after the first . so I manually find that one and change it and run again. I have so much files these days that Thunar's batch renaming function fails to work when I load it up. so I can't use search and replace to change the problematic characters myself. Also, every time I use, I think I lose one file.

ENDSTREAM version 0.04

This is not a security product. It currently opperates in clearnet, but I'll advertize this here as well.

This is a live streaming application using mpv and youtube-dl but operates in the Clearnet (No Tor). This can be modified to do so if you think that streaming is fast enough behind tor, which I have found to be tedious and unuseable. You can use this on a media center computer connected to a large screen tv, or for personal desktop use. Currently it is only grabbing streams from youtube, However if you make some suggestions of other live streams that work with mpv and youtube-dl, I will add them in later releases.

I have added more channels. Some of these streams go dead after a day. But I'm sure some of these will stabalized over time. Go ahead and add your own streams from 121-140. If you know any other sources or good streams post below. Thanks.

So my second hand x220 just arrived and all works fine except the backlight adjustment buttons. No biggie. Just set up some aliases that change /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness.

Thing is I noticed a power folder in intel_backlight. Do I manually need to change power usage depending on the value of brightness or is it done automatically ?

/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/power/control is set to auto but ../power/runtime_enabled is set to disabled.

That kernel flag from the archwiki x220 page doesn't work.

Anonymous 02/22/2017 (Wed) 07:47:04 [Preview] No. 8070 del
I'm trying my best to remeber dealing with power when I was working at Intel, so bear with me.

The 'power' directory is for runtime power management and coresponds to a device going into a sleep state when it is idle (this is *not* the same as suspend to RAM). This directory exists for most devices (I was mostly fiddling with USB devices). In this case a sleep state makes sense for a device such as USB keyboard or mouse, since the device may not be being used and should enter a sleep state (but it's usually fucky and misses the first keypress or motion so it's usually disabled), but I have no idea what it would mean for a monitor. I'm guessing that changing that brightness doesn't count as entering a different *state*, so any power savings from changing the brightness is automatically done by the component; the only time runtime power management states may come into play is when your monitor shuts off due to inactivity (this is my guess, not confirmed).

See Documentation/power/runtime_pm.txt for more.

Hope that helps.

Is there any more news on the Jacob Appelbaum situation? It seems like he's disappeared off of the face of the Earth after the allegations. I find the fact that multiple witnesses have come out against the stories that were told on their behalf disturbing.

>Website comes out with a bunch of rape allegations
>Appelbaum denounces the allegations
>Appelbaum is effectively exiled from the free software community despite the lack of a trial
>multiple witnesses come out saying that the allegations made in their name were false, or at best heavily misinterpreted
>Even if all of the witnesses declare that Jake is innocent, his reputation is forever destroyed

Scary stuff.

I use a Librebooted laptop with Debian that has FDE enabled. I also have a GRUB password set up. Works well enough.

If you're going full tinfoil, then use a Librebooted machine with an OS you've made yourself and remove the networking hardware. Encrypt with Twofish to make brute forcing harder for the attacker.

I didn't use GRUB because of the claims behind being easily accessible through hitting backspace a specific number of times to being the password. I don't have 100% FDE also because of that claim. I'm also worried that if I update to a newer version of GRUB some time in the future that it won't be compatible with Libreboot. To ease my paranoia, I made myself use syslinux instead, but of course, it's no real solution either.

You are welcome to mail Walrus <> and ask why he misconfigured the donate page.

reCAPTCHA is effective, easy for end users, has a good noscript fallback, and has a good API. Naturally not everyone has the same captcha preference as me and that is why I've made it as easy as possible (technically and license-wise) for you to fork tokumei-recaptcha and make it use a different captcha implementation.

no. fuck off with this shit. your site was completely broken shit when you spammed it on 8ch/tech/, with beliefs like this no wonder. since you can't even stray from coding "user friendly" bullshit like HN UX hipsters do, your site will never be useful to anyone who cares about privacy or security

Anonymous 02/21/2017 (Tue) 04:44:05 [Preview] No. 8059 del
Once again, I am not Walrus. My site was not broken, and I did not spam /tech/.

reCAPTCHA *is* effective enough. Google offers a difficulty slider when you generate an API keypair and the maximum difficulty is enough for nearly any site (I can barely solve them as a human). The minimum is quite good too; in practice even a dumb captcha whose answer is always the same keeps out nearly all spam.

reCAPTCHA *is* easy for end users. Many just need to click on a check box.

Obviously a captcha can't be perfectly effective and easy for end users at the same time, but reCAPTCHA's difficulty slider lets individual Tokumei sites decide what balance they want.

Regarding privacy and security, reCAPTCHA is very good. With the minimum difficulty settings we recommend, it can be solved without JavaScript using the Tor Browser Bundle. If you'd read the Tokumei site instead of just skimming and assuming Walrus is responsible for everything, you would know we shill Tor hard. Tokumei's site index recommends privacy-conscious sites that support Tor. We will index any sites that configure reCAPTCHA to be unusable with Tor with a 0/5 free speech rating.

I write user-friendly software with good UX not because I am a hipster (I personally hate material design) but because I am selling my software to users. For most users, material design is friendly. For the rest, I provide an excellent API so you can post from the command line or write your own interface. The material web interface also provides an easy way to install custom CSS to strip material bits you don't like. I don't know what else you want.

If you think Tokumei is HN hipstershit, you have not read a line of code.

So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough (and unless someone goes after spamming your very specific site it holds true)? Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does? I dislike how exactly captcha is implemented here (see lynxchan thread, >>7569), but it is many times better than privacy-invading Google's "service".

>So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google

Unless users ignore our recommendation to use TBB, we are not giving any useful info to either the Tokumei site host or to Google.

In the edge case that a user trusts a Tokumei host enough to access a site over the clearnet (either the site is served over the clearnet directly or they use a gateway) but does not trust Google, you have a point.

>if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough

For Tokumei sites where this is enough, indeed this should be used over the tokumei-recaptcha apps.

>Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does?

Because captcha is complex and Tokumei is not HN shit. This nodeshit website depends on fucking ImageMagick.

But for clearnet hosts that want to avoid pinging Google and don't care about back end complexity, sure, a local captcha app would be good.

It's not real. I've seen terrible things on the internet, but stuff that's truly important is kept hidden extremely well. If the US military for example were to have something similar to Tor but more secure and someone like you found out about it, they'd burn it to the ground and use whatever backup technology they had in case of such an event. If there are super secret organizations or sites out there, you will never find them. I've been digging for years, and I've found some really spoopy shit, but still nothing that truly shocked me.

I'm a little foggy on AMD PSP but it's pretty similar to the IntelME. The ME (short for management engine) is a micro controller inside of the CPU. Firmware for the IntelME is stored in the same EEPROM chip as the BIOS firmware. The frontend of the ME is called AMT, which does a couple of other things too but mostly allows for configuration. The IntelME is officially advertised as a remote management tool. You can do stuff like update the OS or even the BIOS of a bunch of PCs in a closet somewhere and you don't have to touch a single one. The ME also runs below (or I should say independently) of the BIOS, bootloaders, and OS. Fantastic for large companies and frightening for home users. The ME has full system memory and TCP/IP stack access. It can control the CPU cores and I think it's safe to assume that it can also record keystrokes and circumvent your OS firewall. The ME can also send and receive network packets. Most models depend on an Intel wireless card to do this but IIRC some models don't. There's absolutely no reason why it should be present in consumer CPUs, as the average user has no uses for it. If you tried to plysically destroy the ME, your computer would shut off every 30 minutes because the ME manages the CPU cores and interacts with the hardware in such a way that it keeps the CPU cores running. Nobody outside of Intel fully understands how it works. It can now be neutralized with software called ME Cleaner that modifies the ME firmware. You need a Raspberry Pi 3, GPIO cables, and a clip to do it. It requires removing the motherboard of your PC. If you fuck it up, the computer will cease to function.

I was using a Thinkpad T400 for a really long time with Libreboot because I was able to disable the ME. ME Cleaner came out late last year. I've since switched to a Thinkpad T420 with an i5 that uses Coreboot as the BIOS and all is well.

LynxChan 1.8 Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 12:40:15 [Preview] No. 7535 [Reply]
What is LynxChan?
LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( ).
It offers a number of features, including:
-File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them.
-Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily.
-Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards.
-Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users.
-Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork.
-Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.

LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support.
This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them.
When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.

This version brings some other minor features so far:
-More granular and specific verbose modes.
-A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.

Static thread page with posting form, no captcha displayed. Form POSTs to /replyThread.js. What happens to text if it is not embedded into another form in reply page or saved at server? Discarded. Please don't rely on certain browser's ability to store form data. In replyThread.js, if user presented valid bypass cookie or is not subject to captcha check, just store form data as thread reply, put your "post added" in response and do your redirect to thread. If user have to fill captcha ("banned" IP and no cookie), put form data in replyThread.js response page as another form that features captcha. Storing post temporarily in DB and presenting only captcha text plus hidden form field with reference to stored post is fine too. Is that simple enough to implement?

Most web browsers (at least Webkit and Gecko based ones) use hardware acceleration for scrolling and rendering oddly enough. While you can still use them without hardware acceleration, it is far from ideal.

MPD is nice because there are a few terminal frontends for it and you can use them to access MPD remotely (for a headless media server for instance). Personally I use VLC for most video things and only switch to MPV if VLC fails at something (which does happen from time to time).

As for image viewers, I have tried at least half a dozen of them for Linux and not a single one I have tried so far does everything well enough to be usable. Some still think its the early 2000's (when the relevant patents expired) and will not open animated gifs properly, and others will simply hang on extremely large images and/or use massive amounts of memory (not everyone has 16GB of ram to throw around). For some images I have no choice but to use a web browser of all things to look at them. My only hope is that one day Irfanview is ported to Linux so there is at least one image viewer worth a damn.

>why are mplayer and mpv better then vlc?
well, there are rendering options such as vdpau and vaapi but that's a pretty muddy area to draw comparison. There isn't really any difference for image or sound quality unless you are streaming, which is where vlc got its' bad reputation, mostly in the bad old days as a mozilla plugin.

>why is MPD better then, lets say, VLC, when it comes to music?
this is purely an interface thing, nothing to do with sound quality. I personally use deadbeef for music and the interface, keymappings, ability to display track name on desktop and etc. make it more comfy as a music player. Options are also simpler and its' easier to configure than the options in vlc.

>If anyone can recommend any software for viewing images then that would be nice.
I use the standard one that comes with mate "eye of mate" but to be fair, they are all pretty lame. There are no "advanced" image viewers.

>None of them can open certain files that lets say VLC can't?
Actually most use the same backend libs such as gstreamer and xine, so they can all pretty much play the same stuff.

linux kernel code's quality VARIES.

For portion where linus himself and experienced devs invest most of their time tend to be high quality software with lots of technical gems.

It's just vendor specific parts where codes of rather questionable quality get introduced.

Small companies throwing in whatever crap that happens to compile and hipsters who wants title of 'linux developer' spoils community and ultimately, kernel itself.

Sure, Linux has reasons to be larger while sticking to the same philosophy, but not to this extent. It's also much larger because it's so filled with features. Its size is also the result of its very different design philosophy. And I don't think that's a bad thing, but I do think that it invalidates arguments that are just "this one other part of the system doesn't follow the unix philosophy either, therefore it's shit".
