*nicer than mint.

I like the idea it is cooler than a 4chan android app which you figure would be called Clover. I have a feeling that redditors will like this more than the users.Now the problem is reddit adopting this model.The next thing you know all of the respectable developers and shit have moved to Narwhal OS
The trendies would turn open source into liberal acceptance. Postulating cucks that downgrade packages that are not libraries because they are hatespeach. Shitheads just breaking their system by only having libraries installed because they think it means liberal.

For this though in the spirit of shitposting a cool mod would be a launcher with keybindings. The goal would be pressing F5 to trigger the package manager update/upgrade.

For a start, they need to drop KDE, it's just a fucking mess now, this isn't 2004 any more, KDE and QT a shit. They need a proper GTK theme package that will give them a consistent feel through all desktops. For instance, that mate theme is just the default Menta, the gtk colour scheme is putrid and the icons are the decades old defaults. Again same issue with the fonts used. #! used to have a package that kept defaults in an /opt folder and then copied them into a users home and assign ownership with a simple script.

Also, it looks like two different KDE desktops there. I thought the one with the "kde" filename was lxde for a moment.

Wikipedia May Be Coming to the Darknet
Posted by: DividedBy0 June 26, 2017
A proposal recently made by Cristian Consonni, who was previously the Vice President of Wikimedia Italy, calls for bringing Wikipedia to the darknet by hosting the online encyclopedia as a hidden service on the Tor network. The proposal calls for the Wikimedia Foundation to host the hidden service proxy. Wikipedia has faced censorship of its site from governments around the world, including Russia, China, Iran, the United Kingdom, and France, among others. Cosonni hopes that by bringing Wikipedia to Tor, the Wikimedia Foundation can help raise awareness about the Tor Project and spread the use of Tor to more average internet users. Previously, Wikimedia enabled HTTPS for all of its projects in 2014. Making Wikipedia available through a Tor hidden service would allow Tor users to avoid having to access the site through a Tor exit node. Exit nodes are one of the weakest links in Tor, as a malicious exit node can interfere and manipulate certain sites accessed through it. Fortunately, Wikipedia is already mitigating that problem through the use of HTTP Strict Transport Security. Sites which do not implement HTTP Strict Transport Security are vulnerable to downgrade attacks, allowing exit nodes to force users to receive the insecure HTTP version of a site. With HTTP Strict Transport Security and browser add-ons such as HTTPS Everywhere (which is already bundled with the Tor Browser), downgrade attacks can be prevented... Consonni’s proposal notes that Wikimedia’s servers have been subjected to mass surveillance by the NSA’s Upstream bulk collection of traffic from the internet backbone. Wikimedia is currently a party to a lawsuit against the NSA’s Upstream program in the case of Wikimedia Foundation vs. NSA, which was originally filed in 2015. In May of this year, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Wikimedia Foundation does have standing to sue the NSA and the Department of Justice...."It can be argued that the privacy gain of having an onion service over visiting Wikipedia with HTTPS over Tor is minimal, but I think it is worth having this option. I think that all major websites should serve a version over Tor,” Cosonni told Motherboard in a message over Twitter. Users connecting to hidden services never leave the Tor network, and so do not access the site through an exit node connected to the clearnet. On the Wikimedia-l listserv many editors agreed with Cosonni’s proposal. “I think that’s an excellent idea and very much aligned with our commitment to provide free information also for those who are living under unfavorable conditions. I personally endorse it,” editor David Cuenca Tudela replied to Cosonni’s post revealing the hidden services proposal. If the proposal is accepted, Wikipedia would join other mainstream websites in offering the option of accessing the site through a Tor hidden service. In 2014, Facebook launched its own hidden service on Tor. The Internet Archive is currently experimenting with offering their site through a Tor hidden service, and have launched a public beta version of their onion site. Cosonni mentions that Wikimedia could use some of the software created for The Internet Archive’s hidden service. HackerFactor, who has been assisting The Internet Archive in moving to Tor, is also listed as an adviser on the Wikimedia proposal.

PETYA Crypto-ransomware Overwrites MBR to Lock Users Out of Their Computers
Posted on:March 25, 2016 at 2:17 am

As if encrypting files and holding them hostage is not enough, cybercriminals who create and spread crypto-ransomware are now resorting to causing blue screen of death (BSoD) and putting their ransom notes at system startup—as in, even before the operating system loads. Imagine turning on your computer and instead of the usual Windows icon loading, you get a flashing red and white screen with a skull-and-crossbones instead.
igure 1. Petya’s red skulls-and-crossbones warning This is the routine of a new crypto-ransomware variant dubbed “Petya” (detected by Trend Micro as RANSOM_PETYA.A). Not only does this malware have the ability to overwrite the affected system’s master boot record (MBR) in order to lock users out, it is also interesting to note that it is delivered to victims via a legitimate cloud storage service (in this case, via Dropbox). We do note that this isn’t the first time that malware has abused a legitimate service for its own gain; however, this is the first time (in a long time) that leads to crypto-ransomware infection. It is also a departure from the typical infection chain, wherein the malicious files are attached to emails or hosted in malicious sites and delivered by exploit kits. Infection Routine Reportedly, Petya is still distributed via email. Victims would receive an email tailored to look and read like a business-related missive from an “applicant” seeking a position in a company. It would present users with a hyperlink to a Dropbox storage location, which supposedly would let the user download said applicant’s curriculum vitae (CV)...Infection Symptoms Once executed, Petya overwrites the MBR of the entire hard drive, causing Windows to crash and display a blue screen. This is also Petya’s way of getting around security products. Should the user try to reboot his PC, the modified MBR will prevent him from loading Windows normally and instead greet him with an ASCII skull and an ultimatum: pay up with a certain amount of bitcoins or lose access to your files and computer. Another thing to point out here is that the edited MBR also disallows restarting in Safe Mode. The user is then given explicit instructions on how to do this, just like any crypto-ransomware currently making the rounds: a list of demands, a link to the Tor Project and how to get to the payment page using it, and a personal decryption code.

The Verge
The Petya ransomware is starting to look like a cyberattack in disguise

The haze of yesterday’s massive ransomware attack is clearing, and Ukraine has already emerged as the epicenter of the damage. Kaspersky Labs reports that as many as 60 percent of the systems infected by the Petya ransomware were located within Ukraine, far more than anywhere else. The hack’s reach touched some of the country’s most crucial infrastructure including its central bank, airport, metro transport, and even the Chernobyl power plant, which was forced to move radiation-sensing systems to manual. The ostensible purpose of all that damage was to make money — and yet there’s very little money to be found. Most ransomware flies under the radar, quietly collecting payouts from companies eager to get their data back and decrypting systems as payments come in. But Petya seems to have been incapable of decrypting infected machines, and its payout method was bizarrely complex, hinging on a single email address that was shut down almost as soon as the malware made headlines. As of this morning, the Bitcoin wallet associated with the attack had received just $10,000, a relatively meager payout by ransomware standards. “There’s no fucking way this was criminals.” It leads to an uncomfortable question: what if money wasn’t the point? What if the attackers just wanted to cause damage to Ukraine? It’s not the first time the country has come under cyberattack. (These attacks have typically been attributed to Russia.) But it would be the first time such an attack has come in the guise of ransomware, and has spilled over so heavily onto other countries and corporations. Because the virus has proven unusually destructive in Ukraine, a number of researchers have come to suspect more sinister motives at work. Peeling apart the program’s decryption failure in a post today, Comae’s Matthieu Suiche concluded a nation state attack was the only plausible explanation. “Pretending to be a ransomware while being in fact a nation state attack,” Suiche wrote, “ is in our opinion a very subtle way from the attacker to control the narrative of the attack.” Another prominent infosec figure put it more bluntly: “There’s no fucking way this was criminals.” There’s already mounting evidence that Petya’s focus on Ukraine was deliberate. The Petya virus is very good at moving within networks, but initial attacks were limited to just a few specific infections, all of which seem to have been targeted at Ukraine. The highest-profile one was a Ukrainian accounting program called MeDoc, which sent out a suspicious software update Tuesday morning that many researchers blame for the initial Petya infections...

Ars Technica
Tuesday’s massive ransomware outbreak was, in fact, something much worse Payload delivered in mass attack destroys data, with no hope of recovery.
Dan Goodin - Jun 28, 2017 8:30 pm UTC
Tuesday's massive outbreak of malware that shut down computers around the world has been almost universally blamed on ransomware, which by definition seeks to make money by unlocking data held hostage only if victims pay a hefty fee. Now, some researchers are drawing an even bleaker assessment—that the malware was a wiper with the objective of permanently destroying data. Further Reading A new ransomware outbreak similar to WCry is shutting down computers worldwide Initially, researchers said the malware was a new version of the Petya ransomware that first struck in early 2016. Later, researchers said it was a new, never-before-seen ransomware package that mimicked some of Petya's behaviors. With more time to analyze the malware, researchers on Wednesday are highlighting some curious behavior for a piece of malware that was nearly perfect in almost all other respects: its code is so aggressive that it's impossible for victims to recover their data. In other words, the researchers said, the payload delivered in Tuesday's outbreak wasn't ransomware at all. Instead, its true objective was to permanently wipe as many hard drives as possible on infected networks.... Researchers analyzing Tuesday's malware—alternatively dubbed PetyaWrap, NotPetya, and ExPetr—are speculating the ransom note left behind in Tuesday's attack was, in fact, a hoax intended to capitalize on media interest sparked by last month's massive WCry outbreak. "The ransomware was a lure for the media,"...Suiche provided the above side-by-side code comparison contrasting Tuesday's payload with a Petya version from last year.... while the earlier Petya encrypts the master boot record and saves the value for later decryption, Tuesday's payload, by contrast, was rewritten to overwrite the master boot record. This means that,even if victims obtain the decryption key, restoring their infected disks is impossible. "Petya 2016 modifies the disk in a way where it can actually revert its modification," Suiche told Ars. "Whereas yesterday's one does some permanent damage to the disk." Asked if the recovery made possible by Petya 2016 was related to the master boot record tampering, Suiche pointed to this analysis of the ransomware from researchers at Check Point Software.... Tuesday's malware, by contrast, destroys the 25 first sector blocks of the disk. In Wednesday's blog post, Suiche wrote: The first sector block is being reversibly encoded by XORed with the 0x7 key and saved later in the 34th block....That would mean that 24 sector blocks following the first sector block are being purposely overwritten, they are not read or saved anywhere. Whereas the original 2016 Petya version correctly reads each sector block and reversibly encode them. Researchers at antivirus provider Kaspersky Lab, in their own blog post published Wednesday, also labeled the previous day's malware a wiper. They confirmed Suiche's finding that the damage was irreversible. In an e-mail, they wrote: Our analysis indicates there is little hope for victims to recover their data. We have analyzed the high-level code of the encryption routine, and we have figured out that, after disk encryption, the threat actor could not decrypt victims' disks. To decrypt a victim's disk, threat actors need the installation ID. In previous versions of "similar" ransomware like Petya/Mischa/GoldenEye, this installation ID contained the information necessary for key recovery. ExPetr does not have that, which means that the threat actor could not extract the necessary information needed for decryption. In short, victims could not recover their data. Definitely not designed to make money.

We all knew it. Now Linus said it.

In a mailing list discussion about GPL enforcement, Torvalds touches on the pitfalls of involving lawyers in GPL disputes and argues for the superiority of the open source approach, stating: "the people who have created open source and made it a success have been the developers doing work - and the companies that we could get involved by showing that we are not all insane crazy people like the FSF."

Thoughts? Butthurt?

This is not true, merely using the GPL does not give the FSF any rights over your code, or what anyone does with it. It's only if your programme becomes part of GNU that they request you delegate rights.

>All he wants is a way to make the Linux kernel proprietary
He just wants to stick with the GPLv2 because of feuds with some free software people (and not even the FSF staff).
When tivoization appeared people proposed a new draft of the GPL (v3) the license wasn't even a year old draft and Torvalds read it and immediately removed the + of the GPLv2 license that was at that time the license (most of the drivers are still GPLv2+ tho).
What happened are actually linux kernel developers who protested to Torvalds.
Torvalds told them to BTFO because the "draft" GPLv3 license was horrible.
And shit discussions stacked itself for at least two or three weeks until we got the actual State of things where Torvalds don't want to talk about or with free software people.

But he's right about one thing the two or three SJWs in the FSF are crazy and should be impeached for the shit they might steer.

nah he's just a stubborn idiot guy who holds a decade old grudge because of a draft license.

Linus is right. It's stupid to waste so much time on license political shit. It's not only a distraction but outright demoralizing. One reason (but not the only one) I left Debian for OpenBSD is that the mailing list is actually focussed on technical stuff, and not so much political garbage. Politics attracts the worst class of people, the ones with an agenda to push and the brainwashed useful idiots. In OpenBSD they don't get any traction, they will be told to fuck off unless they have actual solid code or other real contribution.

Open source goes back a lot farther than FSF. In the 70's there was an organization called People's Computer Company that started publishing free (PD) software in source code form. They're the same ones who are responsible for Dr. Dobb's Journal, the longest-running most technical journal in the history of computing, with lots of free code for anyone to use as they wish.

How is this even possible?

I can load the full size image in my browser, so it is in the memory, but when I try to download it to disk, it just creates a ~5.5kB broken file. Is this some new Firefox browser feature? How can the server owner have the right what I do with data that's already in my RAM? Is this some kind of new DRM? Please enlighten me. You can be as technical as you want to be, I'm a gentooman, I'm just not up to date about browser technology.

I await your answers with interest and a held beck REE if my worst fears prove to be right.

p.s.: on a second thought is this a Cloudlare-wide thing?

p.s.2: I can still download images from other Cloudflared sites like 4chan, 8ch

Illumos-based OSes Anonymous 10/31/2016 (Mon) 18:30:36 [Preview] No. 7226 [Reply]
Anyone using or dabbling in an Illumos-based OS like OpenIndiana?

After 10 years of using Linux (though I used OpenSolaris a little here and there before Oracle killed it), I've been using OpenIndiana as my daily driver.

On the surface, it's a lot like using any Linux distro with MATE. I have access to most* of the tools I'm accustomed to like gcc, TeXLive, Firefox, and VLC.

I'm really not familiar with the under-the-hood features of the OS that come from Solaris, like DTrace and Zones. On the other hand, I never used systemtap or LXC on Linux, either.

OpenIndiana will be putting out updated installation .isos in the near future. In the meantime, you can install with one of the currently available isos and update. If you want to try OI in a virtual machine, be sure to allocate plenty of RAM. 2048MB minimum.


*With the exception of Tor Browser Bundle, which I'd love to have on OI.

Ok, let's just get into it for a moment:

"The first part of the Solaris code base to be open sourced was the Solaris Dynamic Tracing facility (commonly known as DTrace), a tool that aids in the analysis, debugging, and tuning of applications and systems. DTrace was released under the CDDL on January 25, 2005 on the newly launched opensolaris.org website.[15] The bulk of the Solaris system code was released on June 14, 2005. There remains some system code that is not open sourced, and is available only as pre-compiled binary files."


So, the point is: the original code is not on Illumos. Part of the code has been released, but many parts has been re-engineered, that's what Indiana Project is, to reconstruct Solaris, open source.
What's your point?
I was wrong in some parts, yes. And you are wrong too.

>I knew exactly who you were.
Of course you knew, I'm the only one fag that still post in here! I don't bother hidding my typing style from you people, I know you know it's me when I type.

>over and over and over.
actually I only discuss openbsd here with you, it seems. Most part of the threads here I don't even mention openbsd.
But, yeah, I really support the project because: FSF take hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. OpenBSD guys can't even pay for the energy, and they contributed for computing security equally or more than linux dudes in many areas. Redhat and Cisco, for example, use OpenSSH on their systems and don't even donate some coins. Don't you think it's ridiculous? FSF deffend transgender fags and take mountains of money, OpenBSD do hard on security community and can't even pay for the fucking energy.

at least he posted the original link. half the archive.is using fuckers just post a shortlink. Archive.is can even use long links like what >>7259 posted. But yeah they need to get rid of cuntflare (maybe switch to a real anti-ddos solution, and save half their money) so their service can actually be useful.

This isn't even a problem for most users since they already run everything as the same user, in which case we can just use WriteProcessMemory and CreateRemoteThread for the same functionality (or one of the million other ways to do the same thing). BTW this situation is no differeent than Linux or any other mainstream OS.

Firstly the article is completely retarded, so let's talk about the actual "disclosure" instead:

Well no, there are millions of ways to communicate with the rest of the OS and you cannot enumerate them all, and even if you did, it would mean your stupid Application Firewall gives obscure meaningless warnings (with a 99.999% false positive rate) for every possible action a program takes. This reminds me of Comodo's Application Firewall crap, which did exactly this.

First, get a radeon card with Graphics Core Next. The new AMDGPU drivers that replace the old proprietary drivers are fantastic.
Second, get a motherboard that supports overclocking from the bios/uefi.
Third, if you want wireless you need an atheros chip. Check out thinkpenguin.
Last, aim a little high on the PSU, I have heard linux drivers have higher power consumption on pcie devices.

Also, if you are using wine, check out gallium nine.

ffmpeg help Anonymous 06/17/2017 (Sat) 12:24:13 [Preview] No. 8561 [Reply]
Hey guys, with Adventure Time coming to an end I would like to create a web-dl complete torrent of all seasons.

I like what tinymp4 did here: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/10387424/Adventure_Time_Complete_Season_1_2_3_4_5_720p_-_TinyMP4
These are the 720p episodes with the intro and outtro cut out.

What I want to do is maybe write a script or use bash tools to rename the episodes in a uniform way to cut out the extra stuff in file names, then use something like ffmpeg to cut the beginning and the end off each file but leave the rest as is.

Any ideas how I should go about this?

Anonymous 06/19/2017 (Mon) 01:17:09 [Preview] No. 8562 del
ffmpeg stuff isn't so hard.
You would probably need something like ffprobe to get the length of the episode

 flen=$( ffprobe -i "$filename" -show_entries format=duration -v quiet -of csv="p=0" ) 

Then just work out the start and stop times from that.

 ffmpeg -ss [start] -i in.mp4 -t [duration] 

I think a few episodes of that show had cold opens would need to work out what those are and give them special treatment.

Original creator fucked off years ago.

So I'm sure it's all of above.

Anonymous 06/19/2017 (Mon) 10:15:00 [Preview] No. 8565 del
The original creator didn't fuck off, he stepped down to become one of the writers. Apparently he couldn't write under all the pressure. That said, season 5/6 which was the transition was a little bloated. However they have wrapped everything together in seasons 7, 8 & 9 quite nicely. I particularly liked Finns origin story in the "Islands" mini series which harks back to previous plot development surround Finns dad Martin.
The real problem it seems is that it became far more popular than any other Cartoon Network show. So they deliberately fucked the schedule for episodes to release new episodes as a surprise to force viewers to watch the channel. This negatively affected the ratings. To be fair though the show has had a rough end date since its' creation, because they chose a child actor to voice Finn, eventually he would out grow the role. Anyway, I am clearly a little biased since I like it so much I am making a complete archive of episodes but I think it's being killed off earlier than necessary. There was talk about a Warner Bros. film, maybe now it has ended they will finally make it. Any remaining plot holes can be filled then, but it's mostly complete.

I know the intro and outtro are the same length every time , also the show stopped doing cold opens, so for the remaining seasons (6,7,8,9) that won't be a problem. This is a much better way of handling it than I was thinking to be honest, I was looking for a way to cut off the beginning then cut off the end forcing me to process each file twice.

Any ideas on renaming the files? Every file should have the "s01e01" indicator in its' name, if I could just cut out the rest, that would be ideal. I don't even need to keep the file extension, I can just add a ".mp4" in the ffmpeg output. I am looking this up, would it be sed to find the "s0" the cut everything an additional 4 characters after that and move the file to that new name?

No, the real cancer is Teen Titans GO!, not Cartoon Network's schedule. DC comics got CN by the balls with that show that is the epitome of Gen Z sterile canned humor. If that show just fucked off, everything would be more tolerable.

lobste.rs was originally spreaded by openbsd developers. For example, beck@ , tedu@ , mark@ , all of then use lobste.rs.
It's not the "openbsd-like version of hacker news" in the sense of good code, correctiness, but it has some collaboration from openbsd guys.

>battlestation are neutral
it's ridiculous. No one gives a shit about your consumerism. I don't want to know about what window manager you use and how "riced" it is. I don't want to see your brown switch keyboard with fucking backlight.
Battlestation and desktop threads are the maximum signal of a tech-community degeneracy. When you reach this point you stop and go back, or you die... or, you transform yourself in a hipster. Imageboards are the last place without the retarded and reductionist mentality of hipsters, let's keep this way.

Good catch. OK thats definite masonic lingo there. Not sure about the logo, it looks like the doppler effect. Just because the website has masonic references doesn't mean that the software doesn't work. I haven't tried it personally, but I liked the advertised anti-systemd approach.

Heads tells you they are insiders in the first sentence. This could prove to make it not compromised as it could be using the reputation of this proffesional mens club to vet itself.
