Does anyone celebrate (or on any other way mark) 28. January ? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Pri

I was wondering what would be the top 3 or top 5 themes for this event in my community. So far, thinking of:
1. password management
2. email security (spam/phishing/viruses)
3. web browsers and adblockers (cookies, trackers, ...)
4. VPNs

I was also planing on talking only about solutions.

What do you think?

I've switched from Signal to Molly on my phone. Molly is a drop-in fork that offers database protection with a passphrase, automatic locking and secure RAM shredding: github.com/mollyim/mollyim-and

It fits decent in my workflow, especially in combination with signal-cli on my desktop :flan_cool:

The Privacy Analyzer from Privacy.net is a good, comprehensive way to check what kind of data your browser is leaking to the ad-tech industry:

privacy.net/analyzer/

It steps through five separate tests:

I. Basic info (IP address, OS, etc)

II. Autofill leaks (does your browser allow malicious scripts to capture sensitive info with "autofill" capture?)

Malicious JavaScript in image metadata used to steal data; then, images are used again to exfiltrate data:

blog.malwarebytes.com/threat-a

– Malware uses Exif metadata to inject JavaScript that steals data.
– Afterward, the data is exfiltrated as an image via GET/POST to another server.
– As a server admin, frequently update the server software, and monitor file integrity + network traffic. Moreover, set a strict Content Security Policy.

New blog post: How to use the Zoom malware safely on Linux if you absolutely have to

“When I agreed to speak at Creative Mornings Istanbul tomorrow, I didn’t know they were holding the event over Zoom. I guess it’s fitting that the series I’m speaking at is called Insecure.“
