Last year, we discovered a vulnerability in iOS that causes connections to bypass VPN encryption. This is a bug in iOS that impacts all VPNs. We have informed Apple, and we are now sharing details so you can stay safe.

@aral I wonder how this will impact Cryptee ( since it’s built as a progressive web app (PWA).

It’d be great if Mozilla took the same approach with Firefox. I think Firefox only blocks 3rd-party cookies based on their block lists so not all are blocked by default.

We won't be bundling with Electron any more, instead we'll ship the html/js files themselves.

As for the menu, I will write a library file that will exist across all of our tools and draw an interactive menu in the application view.

To do this properly, I don't want to use npm, I wrote a little dependencies manager to make sure all our lib files are in sync across the applications.

Let's see how that works out.

hold the fuck on. you're saying that google, the advertising company that pioneered the current wave of extracting as much "harmless" data from everyone as possible in order to more effectively market toothpaste to people based on racial profiling, and exists solely due to profits from said advertising... doesn't value my privacy

I wonder if this bot can receive SMS short codes for account verification 🤔

I want to make Linux more accessible to everyone, but also make the complicated and ever growing field of distros easier to understand.

That's the goal or my new project, Try Linux.

Heh, Verizon wants a piece of the privacy action with their new "private" search engine, Note Verizon keeps logs of your IP address for 4 days and also shares it with Microsoft since Bing powers OneSearch.

And Microsoft "removes the entirety of the IP address after 6 months, and cookie IDs and other cross-session identifiers that are used to identify a particular account or device after 18 months."

Oh cool, Qualys SSL Labs has a "dev" instance. Useful now that the main site is down:

While we're all focused on the Corona crisis the US government is quietly pushing an internet #surveillance bill that is aimed at abolishing message encryption:

We should probably pay attention to this and spread awareness even if we are not American:
