Mastodon#infosec

@Elizafox I'm amazed at the number of people who work in #infosec that don't know Tor's origin.

#infosec question: what do you think of the recommendation "implement the dropdown-click-some-characters-of-password-thing" to mitigate a "no controls against keyloggers"?

I know I asked this before, but didn't get any concrete answers (or perhaps missed them?): dear #InfoSec, what do we think about Firechat: opengarden.com/firechat.html

Hipchat has suffered an #infosec incident

They're blaming a "third party library" but, -extremely- annoyingly, have neglected to state which library it is - so be prepared to keep an eye out for other services having incidents in the future, if this isn't a case of hipchat having used something catastrophically out of date.

I never did an #introductions post, so here's mine.

I'm Ella. I'm #autistic #queer #trans #woman #disabled #spoonie with #mitochondrialdisease #depression #anxiety

I have worked as a sysadmin and computer repairs, though I can't work any more.

I like #cats #games #scifi #tech #gadgets #infosec and might be obsessed with #overwatch

Looking for good #InfoSec people to follow on Mastodon to make my move over from the birbsite complete. #wollyweek

SquirrelMail Remote Code Execution PoC Exploit in Bash (CVE-2017-7692) : exploit-db.com/exploits/41910/ #cve #exploit #infosec

I am trying to casually pick up some #infosec knowledge. Current plan:

Step 1. Find the infosec.exchange #mastodon node.
Step 2. Follow infosec peeps
Step 3. Go to DEF CON 2017

DoublePulsar, as the NSA implant is code-named, was detected on more than 107,000 computers in one Internet scan. That scan was performed over the past few days by researchers from Binary Edge, a security firm headquartered in Switzerland.
