CCleanup: A Vast Number of Machines at Risk Anonymous 09/18/2017 (Mon) 12:59:11 [Preview] No. 11173 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The article points as Periform/Avast had no idea about this malware... I don't think so. I don't think it's impossivel that this is an malware sponsored by agencies, since CCleaner is used on so many normie computers today:

Who's agencies?
Microsoft certainly already share everything with the agencies.
Windows 10 is the biggest malware ever.

All I see is that they maybe tried to hide their own backdoor, or maybe it's a CCleaner dev who tried to push his own malware in the back of his team.

Avast's antivirus was already malware. It will miss your actual virus email attachments but identify anything downloaded from a domain registered less than three months ago as a virus. Avast's logic is that if a domain is newly registered, then it must be distributing viruses. Avast does serve as an example of something that harms because it's worse than useless though.

NSA trying to push bad standards Anonymous 09/22/2017 (Fri) 19:10:41 [Preview] No. 11265 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Oh, hey, look the NSA doing it again. First Clipper chip, then IPsec, now the "Simon and Speck":

>An international group of cryptography experts has forced the U.S. National Security Agency to back down over two data encryption techniques it wanted set as global industry standards, reflecting deep mistrust among close U.S. allies.
>More than a dozen of the experts involved in the approval process for Simon and Speck feared that if the NSA was able to crack the encryption techniques, it would gain a "back door" into coded transmissions, according to the interviews and emails and other documents seen by Reuters.

You are a waste of flesh.

Anyway, I'll answer the question for you. No, although NSA Suite B cryptography is an NSA recommendation, the NSA did not have "a massive part" in developing the algorithms in it, as your fellow retard suggested re: RSA.

AES, for example, which is the recommended symmetric cipher in the suite, uses an algorithm called Rijndael, which was developed by two European cryptographers, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen. Rijndael was submitted to the Advanced Encryption Standard contest (and won), which was sponsored by NIST, but it was not created by the NSA.

For a waste of flesh, your clarity to respond the individual that questioned is endearing.

Still, would you trust NIST standards to save a life? I'm sure Edward Snowden values their time preaching how Apple will save privacy with GPG 2.

In an discussion community what matters is not if you're more intelligence or how important you are. What matters is the discussion and the possible conclusions from it. Else, you just fall in an eristic dialectics (as Schopenhauer would say), as we are doing now, it seems.

>What transaction isn't? Are you talking about conning people out of some pocket money, (((anon)))?

You can't have any anonymity if you don't have any way to make anonymous exchanges. You can do anonymous exchange right now, with paper money. Paper money allow "black" market, markets out of any state control. For exemple, you buying something for you friend is anonymous, and is de facto in the "black market". It allows anyone to work without the need of any contract.
It's the most basic need. With every transaction being traceable, you're done. You're just done. If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. The whole economy will be controlled and monitored. But I guess that you trust your government and you bank to not do any arm against you, isn't it ((((((((anon))))))))?
Saying that it profits the criminals is monstrously retarded, since the biggest criminals are the banks, and the companies not paying taxes by using tax heavens. It's not the little faggot drug dealer. Moreover, since it's the state that control the drug traffic, don't count on the fact that they'll track them through bitcoin transaction. Police don't have enough people anyway to do this job. That's why it's actually the banks who try to detect credit card fraud (under ~1000/2000 euros), and not the police.

>The only thing that does is prevent hoarding and even more egregious speculation.
What? You're talking about monetary creation? That's the process that build paper money, that makes it remain on pure debt. The dollars paper money you have in your pocket is a debt upon the central bank. The money who's on your bank account is a debt on the bank. Nothing have any value, and it allows bank to create money out of nowhere. Well, not from nowhere, but from continuous inflation. Bitcoin will not solve anything. I pretty much think that it'll worsten the problem. I highly think that today's crypto will not be the future crypto used in global market (when the world will have only one global market). Maybe the blockchain will be private. Maybe they want a decentralised money to make it detached from any nation (since every nation will disapear, it's pretty logic) in apparence, but totaly controlled by the one setting it up.
The whole economy is immoral. Bitcoin will not, but confirm everything that has been destroyed since the founding of modernity.
You truly must be a redditor level faggot using his little mac to think that bictoin is a good thing. That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace. They're the one finding totaly normal to buy modern car which are connected to the manufacturer, manufacturer that can control the car, lock it, stop it etc...

"I" expected more of you. Don't tell me you're the common hn user, not risking to go in any direction that is not approved by the official good thinking institution.
About the RFID, no, I don't think that it's particulary what is reffered to be the mark of the beast. I think that it's nearly nothing, especially when you look at the neurolace, and what are the tech possibilities that would be available in the close future. Honestly, the private corps already know everything about everyone. All i'm saying is that it's a very very dark future that is being releaved as the days advance. And it's certainly technology which is the conductor. It's like always: a trade between yourself, a piece of your soul and your privacy, for more comfort, social acceptance etc..

Moreover, you haven't read my post to the end: I'm saying that the future crypto currency will be far more controlled than what it is now. Every bank are testing their own crypto.
Don't think that banks will diseapear with the founding of a global market based on an unique cryptocurrency.


Anonymous 09/22/2017 (Fri) 16:06:36 [Preview] No. 11260 del
Cryptocurrency does amaze me, I think it has potential (that is, *IF* continually allowed to).

However, I do see in the near future one of two things playing out on a global scale: either 1) governments will step in, intervene and take full control over it with new regulations and laws, thus undermining the whole freedom/anonymous concept ... OR 2) governments will just shut it all down, like they have begun to in China. And this will lead to arrests and raids if exchanges don't conform.

That being said, invest wisely and DO diversify! Do not hold all your eggs in one basket. Make sure you have plenty of basic essentials needed to survive stocked up (the prepper mindset), have some physical gold or silver coins to barter with, guns/ammo/mags won't hurt for self-defense (if you can get them), if you can buy some property away from a major city I highly recommend it if you are up to that line of work, make sure you minimize your debts too. Try to become as self-sufficient as possible.

We all know that governments are planning to steal our wealth via the banks. We need to be planning ahead of time, to mitigate how much they can steal. And it is possible but you have to diversify your investments and holdings. Don't just trust one entity to protect your wealth - it is mostly up to you. When SHTF you have what you can physically hold onto and that's pretty much it.

So why don't you, like fucking everyone since the night of times, purpose a paid subscription?
You know what internet is like? A free to play. First to make it extremly accessible, while taking money from the customer who don't even know they's one. It's a shit economical system, based on ignorance.
People still think that google, facebook is free. Just ask anyone how they win billions and are at the top of tech industry, most people will not even be able to answer (or something vague like "ads?").

We need to stop with this. "If it's free, then you're the product."
All I see is that a lot of people actually started their blog for fun, to share with people, then they discovered that they could make a shit tone of money on it, so greed came on, and they try to only live on that. That's not how reality works. You can't live only on your shit little blog, or on a little youtube video. Just look at how newspaper use to work in the past. It's the same thing. It's not because I share some good inside with peoples that I'm gonna create an entire newpaper on this idea, and only live on that.
I need something serious. A team of writers, a shit tone of work, talent. Not just random internet luck of fame.

That's the root of the problem. Too easy for random people to get too much money. Just look who're at the top of youtube, or other medias. That's ridiculous. It's certainly, certainly not a meritocracy. Even the top youtuber agree with that, that they're were they are with only luck, and that people with less success have more talent than them.

I don't think it's an internet issue, I think it's an human issues. Nikola Tesla, Kurt Godel and many others, died poor and fucked, for example, before the internet existed. The people that really constructed computing, like Konrad Zuze, never appear on mainstream, just the fancy Steve Jobs that did nothing of good.
It's how our primitive thinking always end up with the same patterns. People don't like to extend their thoughts, therefore, shit content will be produced to keep the circus running.
People like to think how things "might look like" and not how it really is, therefore they numb themselves with myths.

Internet is a human construct, so it's pretty normal that it was designed with ideology in mind. That's why it's the support of the worste surveillance technology ever. That's why it's so hard to access privacy, because it was made to be public in the first place.
