F-Droid bans Gab for being a “free speech zone” that will “tolerate all opinions”

The free and open-source software (FOSS) Android repository F-Droid has issued a statement saying that it won’t distribute any apps that promote free speech social network Gab because it’s a “free speech zone” that will “tolerate all opinions.” The decision comes after other apps and websites in the Fediverse, a decentralized collection of blogging and social networking projects, have attempted to censor Gab and goes against the very nature of FOSS.

F-Droid posted a statement about its decision to block Gab apps titled “Public Statement on Neutrality of Free Software” which ironically explains why F-Droid is going against its longstanding principle of staying neutral. The statement also strangely never mentions Gab by name, even though the entire statement is clearly about Gab, and instead refers to it as “a website.”

The statement starts by positioning Gab’s commitment to free speech and diverse opinions as a bad thing:

“To recap the situation: a website joined the fediverse only half a month ago that is well known to be a “free speech zone”, meaning it claims to tolerate all opinions. While in theory this might seem to be a good concept, it has serious consequences: things like racism, sexism, verbal abuse, violent nationalist propaganda, discrimination against gender and sexual minorities, antisemitism and a lot more things become popular on such instances.”

Further on in the statement, F-Droid says that as its ninth birthday approaches, it will be abandoning its history of staying neutral in order to censor Gab:

“F-Droid as a project soon celebrates its 9th birthday. In these 9 years, F-Droid’s mission was and is to create a place where people could download software they can trust – meaning only free, libre and open source software is available on its flagship repository. As a project, it tried to stay neutral all the time. But sometimes, staying neutral isn’t an option but instead will lead to the uprise of previously mentioned oppression and harassment against marginalized groups. We don’t want and won’t support that. F-Droid is taking a political stance here. F-Droid won’t tolerate oppression or harassment against marginalized groups. Because of this, it won’t package nor distribute apps that promote any of these things. This includes that it won’t distribute an app that promotes the usage of previously mentioned website, by either its branding, its pre-filled instance domain or any other direct promotion.”

F-Droid then goes on to say that “moderation” is necessary to prevent “oppression and harassment” from flourishing. This decision by F-Droid is the latest example of censorship that Gab has faced since joining the Fediverse. Prior to the F-Droid ban, numerous Fediverse apps have blocked connections to Gab servers and Google has also said that Gab’s app will be banned from the Google Play Store on July 19 unless it complies with an impossible list of demands.

The censorship Gab has faced from those in the Fediverse directly conflicts with the Four Essential Freedoms of Free Software which people in this community supposedly uphold. Most notably, censoring Gab goes against the first of these freedoms – “the freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose.”

Since Gab is the largest node in the Fediverse and recently passed 1 million users, welcoming Gab would likely have provided F-Droid and other developers in the Fediverse with a huge boost in new users. However, they seem willing to sacrifice both the freedoms of free software and potential user growth in order to censor Gab.

Despite this wave of censorship from F-Droid and others, some app developers are staying true to the freedoms of free software and supporting connections to Gab’s servers.

Gab has responded to F-Droid’s decision by branding them as cowards and announcing plans to fork F-Droid’s repository.

Where do we bitch about 5g

5g is USA's Credit System a la China. The 5g installations near traffic lights bomb nearby cars with a certain RF frequency to program a 'stop and go' response to anyone around. This can be used later.

I mean it's really simple programming that starts with the fundamental 'stop and go' of a traffic light.

Now imagine they don't like you. They hit you with the same 'stop' signal outside of some bar where you might pick up chicks to keep you segregated from society.

Imagine now not using a VPN and them tracking your internet usage and blasting you RF accordingly. You show an interest in guns and they hit you with positive RF signals whenever you're looking at guns online.

How much money can they steal from you using this shit? How many shootings will this shit cause? It's not just the Gov't with control of these towers. Google and Verizon both have direct control of this shit.

NordVPN

With the absurd amount of shilling that this gets from (((influencers))) I can't help to believe that NordVPN is some kind of honeypot and/or botnet. There is no way that they can be shilling to so many influencers and have so many organic "how do I use this service" posts on the net.

Pale Moon says hackers added malware to older browser versions

Hackers have breached the archive server of the Pale Moon browser project and tainted older browser versions with malware.

The hack went undetected for more than 18 months, according to a breach notice published today by M.C. Straver, the Pale Moon lead developer.

The Pale Moon "archive server" is used to host older versions of the Pale Moon browser, in case users want to downgrade from the current stable version.

"A malicious party gained access to the at the time Windows-based archive server (archive.palemoon.org) which we've been renting from Frantech/BuyVM, and ran a script to selectively infect all archived Pale Moon .exe files stored on it (installers and portable self-extracting archives) with a variant of Win32/ClipBanker.DY (ESET designation)," Straver said today.

The Pale Moon dev said he learned of the incident yesterday, July 9, and immediately took down the compromised archive server.

Hack took place way back in 2017

"According to the date/time stamps of the infected files, [the hack] happened on 27 December 2017 at around 15:30," Straver said, following a subsequent investigation.

"It is possible that these date/time stamps were forged, but considering the backups taken from the files, it is likely that this is the actual date and time of the breach."

The Pale Moon dev said all Pale Moon 27.6.2 and earlier were infected. Curiously, archived older versions of the Basilisk web browsers were not tainted, despite being hosted on the same server.

Ironically, the Pale Moon project missed a chance to detect the intrusion in May this year, when the original archive server encountered a data corruption issue and went down.

"Unfortunately, after the incident that rendered the server inoperable, the files transferred to the new system were taken from a backup made earlier that was already in an infected state due to the passage of time that this breach has gone undetected, so the infected binaries were carried over to the new (CentOS) solution," Straver said.

Going after cryptocurrency users

Users who downloaded files from the archive server are advised to scan their systems or wipe and reinstalls their workstations, to be on the safe side.

The Win32/ClipBanker.DY trojan is a what security researchers call a clipboard hijacker. After it infects victims it sits in an operating system's background, watching the OS clipboard. This particular variant would watch for text snippets that looked like Bitcoin addresses, and would replace them with a pre-configured address, in the hopes of hijacking transactions towards a hacker's own wallet.

The trojan had been previously analyzed in an ESET report dated March 2018. Other versions of this same malware family also had support for replacing Monero addresses.

Beware the Social Score

What will YOU do when the Chinese Social Score comes to your nation?

Don't think for one minute that it won't. Generation Z has been raised to rate everything, from the products they buy, to the sellers they buy from, the restaurants they visit, their teachers, and even the doctors they visit. They rate their uber driver and the uber driver rates them. You have a large generation very used to the concept of rating.

The social media phenomenon has inculcated a narcissistic driven behavioural reinforcement system, by which people are nudged into group pleasing actions in return for high scores. Whether the motivation is purely rooted in vanity, or for monetary award corresponding to subscriber counts, it becomes clear that people are intimately vested in a gamification existence.

This combination of ratings and points is the underbelly for a "Social Score" system that is actually being realized in China today. Fail a test, litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits. Naturally, governments will issue rewards to nudge people into 'correct' behaviour. Those with low scores will be restricted from many services ranging from communications to travel; perhaps dissidents won't even have any freedom of movement! I'm sure you can imagine how such a scheme could also be tied into Universal Income.

(((They))) have primed the younger generation to accept this system, and you're kidding yourself if you think it will be met with but a handful of resistors. The question is then, how do we prevent this dystopian nightmare from emerging before it is too late?

In the past several years, i realized i have a heart for logos. Probably because the nature of logo's simplicity, and often geometrical elegance, and my personal penchant toward these qualities.

Purpose of Logos

Logos, is a graphical representation of a entity. It is the visual analog of names. Logos are particularly important in our modern, capitalistic, corporate environment. Look around you, you can find tens of logos in your immediate surrounding, and recognize each of them or the company, without conscious thinking.

Logo is not a fashion statement. It has strong ties with marketing and public perception, which is a general property to anything representative, such as book covers, corporation's names, your attire.

OK so hear me out.

Our modern transitors work by etching a specific serires of shapes onto scilicon and the patterns of those shapes make transitors. IT is a uniform pattern. However there is no particular reason why we have to use 1 bit transitors. For example we could use a ternary design.

What I propose is that you have an AI have complete control of how it would be etched and reward the ai when the etching produces the proper output and punish the ai when it is the improper output. Also reward the ai when the output speeds up and uses less power etc. And I propose to you that Ai will not resort to transistors. Depending on the chip you are trying to design the ai will choose an amorphous blob/shape that is optimized precicely to move the electrons how you want without any logic gates and that it will be supra ultra low power

General Forgotten Technology Thread

Anyone old enough to have used this? Anyone old enough to have used this and ACTUALLY used this?

QUBE was an experimental two-way, multi-programmed cable television system that played a significant role in the history of American interactive television. It was launched in Columbus, Ohio, on December 1, 1977. Highly publicized as a revolutionary advancement, the QUBE experiment introduced viewers to several concepts that became central to the future development of TV technology: pay-per-view programs, special-interest cable television networks, and interactive services.

TL;DR it was an early Cable Service owned by Warner that introduced a lot of the concepts of contemporary cable and though an example of Pay TV, they seem to have not developed the push for it.

Hackers breach FSB contractor, expose Tor deanonymization,etc

Hackers have breached SyTech, a contractor for FSB, Russia's national intelligence service, from where they stole information about internal projects the company was working on behalf of the agency – including one for deanonymizing Tor traffic.

The breach took place last weekend, on July 13, when a group of hackers going by the name of 0v1ru$ hacked into SyTech's Active Directory server from where they gained access to the company's entire IT network, including a JIRA instance.

Hackers stole 7.5TB of data from the contractor's network, and they defaced the company's website with a "yoba face," an emoji popular with Russian users that stands for "trolling."

Hackers posted screenshots of the company's servers on Twitter and later shared the stolen data with Digital Revolution, another hacking group who last year breached Quantum, another FSB contractor.

FSB's secret projects

Per the different reports in Russian media, the files indicate that SyTech had worked since 2009 on a multitude of projects since 2009 for FSB unit 71330 and for fellow contractor Quantum. Projects include:

Nautilus - a project for collecting data about social media users (such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn).

Nautilus-S - a project for deanonymizing Tor traffic with the help of rogue Tor servers.

Reward - a project to covertly penetrate P2P networks, like the one used for torrents.

Mentor - a project to monitor and search email communications on the servers of Russian companies.

Hope - a project to investigate the topology of the Russian internet and how it connects to other countries' network.

Tax-3 - a project for the creation of a closed intranet to store the information of highly-sensitive state figures, judges, and local administration officials, separate from the rest of the state's IT networks.

BBC Russia, who received the full trove of documents, claims there were other older projects for researching other network protocols such as Jabber (instant messaging), ED2K (eDonkey), and OpenFT (enterprise file transfer).

Other files posted on the Digital Revolution Twitter account claimed that the FSB was also tracking students and pensioners.

Some projects came to be, were tested

But while most of the projects look to be just research into modern technology – which all intelligence services carry out – there are two that appear to have been tested in the real world.

The first was Nautilus-S, the one for deanonymizing Tor traffic. BBC Russia pointed out that work on Nautilus-S started in 2012. Two years later, in 2014, academics from Karlstad University in Sweden, published a paper detailing the use of hostile Tor exit nodes that were attempting to decrypt Tor traffic.

Researchers identified 25 malicious servers, 18 of which were located in Russia, and running Tor version 0.2.2.37, the same one detailed in the leaked files.

The second project is Hope, the one which analyzed the structure and make-up of the Russian segment of the internet.

Earlier this year, Russia ran tests during which it disconnected its national segment from the rest of the internet.

SyTech, the hacked company, has taken down its website since the hack and refused media inquiries.

What's a scripting language that doesn't suck?

>lua

90% of the stdlib is unusable, the syntax is sensible, it's completely useless for anything other than its logical operators which literally anything can do better. For instance sh has a large amount of different kinds of expansion you can use to augment your logic.

Because at least it can get you there with logical operators and whatever you should be using it for will be providing you with nonstandard functions, at least it can be a garbage (but less so than the alternatives) extension language which was its original goal.

Also one of those things that are basically undocumented, and no the horrible manuals on the website or the cashgrab books (thank fuck I pirated them) don't count.

>sh

Best syntax except for the fact that even in POSIX builtins it's completely ignored by half the commands (look at getopts syntax for instance). Otherwise you can literally just say "do thing" and it does thing, WOOOOOOOW. No idea how everything else screwed this up so bad.

The ksh manual for instance is 2000~ lines and after that you already know POSIX shell + some bourne/korn extensions, and how limited it all is sadly.

Can't even fucking do argument splitting without requiring you to write an incomprehensible dirty hack, specially if you want to have long opts and will turn into a dirty hack one way or another if your script does anything but run commands in series.

Intel announces new /dev/null Chip

Intel has announced a new version of its /dev/null/ chip to be released the first quarter of 2021. The chip is an improvement on the former chip, the last major revision of was in 2006.

The device, named "E-Devie", is designed to "more effectively" remove the data from the machine more effectively, via an LED to flash to dispose of the data securely.

The chip itself is a standard 8 rail computer chip (replacing the four-rail technology from 2006) functioning with an inductance of the low 4 ohms. It is said that the chip will be compatible with all currently released chipsets by Intel, including IA_64.

How to get a solid foundation in compsci mathematics

This guide assumes you forgot everything from highschool. No you don't have to learn any of this in order to program you can just start hacking around every .c file in your kernel.org git source clone and see what happens. Why would you want to learn math? Because it will change your thinking. You won't be easily fooled by bullshit, you will have tools to sort through obvious logical fallacies. You will be able to optimize programs and create your own algorithms. You will be able to estimate. Above all, you will be able to solve problems using computation which is what computer science is all about. And least of all, you will get paid more than anybody else without this knowledge so if your goal is shekels then read on. Note: DO THE EXERCISES. You won't learn otherwise. Books instead of video lectures were chosen because they've lasted 30+ years some of them in relevancy in the field, also lectures disappear all the time like when MIT nuked all one prof's Physics OCW lectures because he tried to pickup a student, setting a precedent that at anytime this information can disappear. Read a book nigga.

what should i research in order to know what to do?

Ubuntu will drop 32-bit x86 arch entirely. If you ever needed an excuse to ditch this absolute joke of a disto in favor of the one they've been copying for years, now would be a good time.

Is it possible to get burnt out on computers?

Is it possible to get burnt out on computers? Im 34 and I have no motivation to learn to code. I want to get outdoors but getting outdoors doesnt pay.

There's a website called "AI Portraits" which is being shilled on multiple boards (including at the bare minimum, /b2/ and /v/) and even cuckchan.

Does this website glow-in-the-dark? I believe it could be to archive who uses the chans or maybe just what they look like.

Adblockers block 8ch from loading

Hi guys. All of the adblockers are now blocking this site from loading. Do you know what list(s) the site has been added to?

How do we defeat this latest attempt?

Is Gab Social Safe?

Since their has been quite a controversy around this site. Is it possible that the government has gotten involved and Gab social is now secretly giving away all our information to the government? And this some front-ploy. If not, is the site even worth using anyway? I don't like signing up for shit

Static/Dynamic Linking and the Administrator and User

So there’s this sort of debate in GNU/Linux between Static and Dynamic linking. Really this is also framed as a debate between musl, which lists static linking as a selling point, and the popular glibc, which afaik dropped static support and only does dynamic linking.

So different C koders have different views on this, but I wanted to see what this might mean for the recipients of the compiled binaries. What would this mean for the end user or an admin in handling their systems. How would performance change? Would anyone have to do anything different? What about compiling a program that’s not in the repos and has no packaged version? Does that change?

Which one is truly better for everyone in the long run?

Why does Tor posting break every other day?

I realize it's not the fault of anyone on /tech/, but why can't they impose the Tor image and captcha restrictions on the regular server and let us post through there?

Is the .onion server just an excuse to break Tor posting every other damn day of the week? Seriously, I legitimately never seen a website that breaks as often, not even for sites hosted in somebody's old Pentium in a moldy garage.

All computers since 2003 can read your keystrokes, screen, files

Full remote backdoor available in all Intel and AMD computers since 2003

All your keystrokes, screens, files can be remotely read or modified on demand at any time by MOSSAD, even if your PC is turned off. That includes your encryption password.

Pre-PSP and pre-ME cpu's are not safe. ASF and DASH are previous versions of PSP/ME botnet. ASF --> DASH --> ME/PSP

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alert_Standard_Format

Alert Standard Format (ASF) (also sometimes referred to as Alert Standard Forum, Alerting Specifications Forum, Alert Specification Function, etc.) is a DMTF standard for remote monitoring, management and control of computer systems in both OS-present and OS-absent environments.

https://www.dmtf.org/standards/dash

>DASH provides support for the redirection of KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) and text consoles, as well as USB and media, and supports the management of software updates, BIOS (Basic Input Output System), batteries, NIC (Network Interface Card), MAC and IP addresses, as well as DNS and DHCP configuration. DASH specifications also address operating system status, opaque data management, and more.

they can access your keyboard, video, mouse over the internet

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_and_mobile_Architecture_for_System_Hardware

Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) is a Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) standard.

>Intel Active Management Technology is a compliant implementation of DASH.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Active_Management_Technology

>Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) is hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band management of personal computers,[1][2][3][4][5] running on the Intel Management Engine, a separate microprocessor not exposed to the user, in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair them.

>Intel confirmed a Remote Elevation of Privilege bug (CVE-2017-5689, SA-00075) in its Management Technology on May 1, 2017.[12] Every Intel platform with either Intel Standard Manageability, Active Management Technology, or Small Business Technology, from Nehalem in 2008 to Kaby Lake in 2017 has a remotely exploitable security hole in the ME. [13][14] Some manufacturers, like Purism[15] and System76[16] are already selling hardware with Intel Management Engine disabled to prevent the remote exploit. Additional major security flaws in the ME affecting a very large number of computers incorporating Management Engine, Trusted Execution Engine, and Server Platform Services firmware, from Skylake in 2015 to Coffee Lake in 2017, were confirmed by Intel on November 20, 2017 (SA-00086).

>AMD PRO A-Series platforms utilizing DASH manageability enable manageability features you need and want. These affordable, easy-to-use management tools and features enable remote management of client systems, whether they are powered on (in-band) with a responsive operating system (in-service), or when the clients are powered off (out-of-band) or have a non-responsive operating system (out-of-service). Our powerful management tools also offer remote diagnostics and troubleshooting, asset management, automated system startup and shut down.

>Client systems that support out-of-band management help IT administrators perform tasks independent of the power state of the machine or the state of the operating system. Examples of out-of-band management tasks include: 1) Securely starting up a system remotely, even if it is currently powered off; 2) Viewing asset inventory information for a system that is powered off; 3) Retrieving health information about system components even if the OS is unavailable.

Creating an AI?

I've heard of tensorflow and shit, but I'm too much of a fucking brainlet to actually try. I just wonder if it's possible. I know it'll take a while to actually develop a personality, but I figure it should be able to grow with proper interaction.
