Should I be concerned that Trend is flagging the official Mastodon app on Android as suspect? Or is it just Trend being a goofball again? #mastodon #android #malware #trendmicro #security

Mastodon Has A Serious SPAM Problem

"Over the past week or so there has been a serious spam problem hitting mastodon and rest of the fediverse especially misskey over on the japanese side of things and the story behind it is absolutely wild."

To users worried about the recently published #security issues: the ownCloud (now Kiteworks) problems do not affect Nextcloud.

We have strict security rules around not shipping test data from libraries to avoid such risks. Find out more in our statement.

Celebrating the Beauty of Open Source!

@techlore shares their experience at #NextcloudConf with a glowing review of the Nextcloud community.

Thanks for joining us Henry!

While all software has security issues, the irresponsible behavior of Microsoft shows why anti-trust action is needed to reduce the stranglehold the big tech firms have over the cloud computing market. Without external pressure, companies tend to hide rather than fix problems. #security #bigtech #oversight

BEWARE of a most likely MALICIOUS Liblast "fork":

This person has faked "evidence" to support a ridiculous claim about Liblast (which is verifiably false).

The person has also created fake issue tickets and tried to pull developer's attention to a supposed vulnerability (which makes no sense either and had no substance provided).

Don't let this person deceive you. We don't know what their agenda is yet, but they are certainly malicious.

Fuck it. #YOLO

#Bluesky continues to be entirely non-responsive to the numerous security vulnerabilities I've reported to them, so I spent the evening writing up a nice README and a framework with exploit modules, and just made it all public.

Have fun.

Downfall is a new 'severe' flaw in Intel CPUs, while AMD deal with INCEPTION #AMD #Intel #Security

Concerned about the safety of your Google Docs when it comes to AI training? Check out this informative article on #ZDNet that explores the potential risks and safeguards. Stay informed and protect your data! #DataPrivacy #Security

I've always questioned how much more secure this is than emailing files, for outbound documents. It limits the opportunity window of an attacker when the first document is sent, rather than the file sitting on various mail servers. But if an attacker can intercept the email, then that attacker can sign in to Nextcloud and access the file. Ideally, you would do some sort of identity proofing or non-email communication of initial credentials before exchanging files.

File Drop enables your customers, partners or anyone outside your organization to upload files to a secure cloud folder.

First #RaspberryPi earned a shitstorm by hiring an ex-cop specialized in hidden surveillance.

Now they accept an investment by Sony for their propr. AI engine to be included in the next Pi. Which "only sends metadata to the cloud".

Here's a fine list of alternatives to that now-garbage company:

Excellent story on Wired about Telegram's problems with supposedly being "private" and secure, and how Russia is exploiting it

IMO Telegram should be treated like Facebook: if you're registered there, don't leave any details, configure all chats to self-delete (especially non-private ones), and FFS do not use it for group chats, whether they're open or closed, as they're not encrypted at all.

New #blog: Autodetecting and Announcing #Mastodon Scrapers and Crawlers

There've been quite a few #fedisearch issues recently, but the common thread is that there's usually a gap in reporting - they're often live for weeks before people are made aware.

It's not just people's pet projects either, there are other #scrapers active, quietly consuming posts

So, I built a bot to detect and out them so that fedi admins can block as necessary

For those who need a formal, guided approach for their #privacy & #security journey, I'll be working with them individually to help reach their goals - big or small. I've worked with business execs, public figures, & privacy enthusiasts via the program, and it's a blast to see the progress people make in such a short time!

Go Incognito is a #privacy #security course I spent two years developing, totaling over 4 hours of video content. It has now had thousands of people go through it, most absolutely loving it! Best of all, there is both a free and paid variant to make it accessible ๐Ÿ’ฏ

But, like most tech, things need to be updated:

Go Incognito v2 is officially a project I will be developing, and all premium v1 peeps will be grandfathered into v2 and any future iterations.
