Quad9 is moving to Switzerland:
“The Swiss government produced findings of law that Quad9 is exempt from both law enforcement and intelligence data-collection and retention requirements, as well as KYC.”

Blocklist for ScamClub domains:
FYI Mozilla / Firefox shares user data with Google, Leanplum, and Adjust  by default except on Klar  . Learn how to opt-out here . Also doesn't hurt to search for "telemetry" in `about:config` (not available on Firefox iOS) and toggle the entries to `false`.
Watching this video  comparing the malware blocking effectiveness of 3rd party DNS resolvers got me thinking...
For some security focused use cases wouldn't it be valuable if there were a way to leverage multiple DNS resolvers with a strategy where DNS requests are sent to multiple resolvers in parallel and responses are returned only once it's determined that no resolver blocked the request? 🤔
Looks like the dev also made an app for AdGuard Home 😯
Playing with Pi-hole  and PiVPN  on a VPS and learned about the Pi-hole Remote iOS app  on the subreddit . Wow, it’s really nice! 😍
TIL reading CitizenLab's "Great iPwn" report from last month  that Turkey’s Government-run Computer Emergency Response Team (USOM)  maintains a public filterlist of malicious hosts they observe.
Hosts: https://www.usom.gov.tr/url-list.txt (~90k domains, ~2 MB)
“Signal Is A Good Start, But Beware”
Good to see: Mullvad had Cure53 audit the security of their infrastructure.
“The security awareness and overall security posture should be regarded as rather good, as expected Cure53 were not able to discover any Personally-Identifiable-Information attached to Mullvad's end-users.”
Proton's blog posts   don't state details on the filter lists being used, only that it's a "massive database of sites known to host malware, spyware, or any other malicious software."
But it looks like they mentioned on Reddit , "We have both public and proprietary lists that we maintain." 😕
Added several more interesting encrypted DNS providers I recently learned about to https://encrypted-dns.party for Apple devices:
- https://ahadns.com (previously pi-dns)
Signal team needs to address this.
“Signal should warn users who are likely using insecure IME apps”
