Please include a subject and a summary when posting links to news/opinions/lists et cetera.

Please don't just post a link, and one sentence.

Please don't post "is this cyberpunk?". Either assume it is, or give your thread some substance.

If your question can be answered with yes/no, try harder.

There's a lot of media pumping for bitcoin that came out of nowhere recently. Someone obviously bought some ads. this also happens to coincide with a bullish market trend that's primed to take prices into 600s territory.

How is Turing completeness a security risk?

The real problem is that people used a language modeled after python, a language with pretty much no concern for safety or correct code, to build extremely critical infrastructure for handling money. That problem has already been solved. There is an Idris to EVM compiler along with a paper detailing how it works: http://publications.lib.chalmers.se/records/fulltext/234939/234939.pdf


>How is Turing completeness a security risk?

it allows for infinite loops. Not really a risk in a managed language though.

I've hovered this board for a while but never really participated in much. Although I would like your opinions on something like this.

If you're familiar with Mirrors Edge, you'd know what I'm talking about purely by the subject. More or less, do you know of any "real life" runners or if it's even possible to do? That is, people delivering high importance items/documents/illegal shit to a client via, well, running, more or less? It's just an interesting thought. The world as we know it is becoming more under watch, cameras watching us from every angle, our phones being hacked to listen to our conversations, collecting our meta data. Would it work to have such a simple method of local delivery, if things truly did become... as /cyb/ as things seem to be going? Not necessarily a strictly following Mirrors Edge thread, just the idea of "running" a job. Thoughts?

i guess you are kidding, but if not then fyi "tor is a virus" is a ~2012 meme created by antivirus companies in the name of NSA and KGB. kaspersky were probably even the first to do this.
and they don't call it a virus, they call it a potentially unwanted application, because it could have a vulnerability and therefore could allow malware to enter your system.
if you don't think this is retarded then you need to RTFM.

It isn't as retarded as you might think. Lots of botnets host their command and control servers as hidden services and use Tor to phone home. Tor activity on a normies computer might very well be an indication of malware.

I think the best tool for defeating authoritarian overlords (like Erdogan) is strong encryption.

I know whatsapp has been having run-ins with the Brazilian gov because bra opposition has been using it for comms. They have end-to-end encryption and weren't storing peoples' conversations so they could never comply with subpoenas for info.

If there widespread apps like that, that didn't have access to user data people could and didn't do all the nasty tracking stuff, maybe it would be easier to organize opposition.

As it is now it would probly make the most sense to record the violence that the gov and its supporters are carrying out against innocent people. Anything to humanize the situation for Western spectators increases the chances of some sort of humanitarian intervention. Otherwise, people in other countries have their own shit to deal with and they'll leave you to figure shit out (see based tribalism gods above). Maybe make a collective of anonymous people that document and report on nastiness they see.

It's possibly because youtube generally sounds like shit, and most people only use it to check something out whereas people torrent something as a means to acquire a quality version for keeps. In theory, at least... of course there are people who only listen to music via youtube but let's be honest, anyone who does that is probably such a passive listener that it's not likely they would ever spend much money on buying music.

That's different. A TV show is something most people only watch once anyway. Not that I care if people steal from AMC (I do it), but the lack of logic there is astounding.

Has anybody ever made an augmented reality based larping platform?

So someone could make a quest by deploying NPCs with lines, quest items and bosses to different real-life locations via a gui and have them, and their interactions (conversations, battles etc.) rendered by the engine, as well as random encounters, with perhaps the density and nature of said random encounters dictated again by the quest-maker. These quests, and the assets used to make them could be published through an official online platform as free software/public domain assets, with donations available to motivate content creation; or as proprietary assets (perfectly acceptable for art and dialogue) by commercial developers. With the engine and creation tools released and developed as free-software (copyleft) to allow for the development as whole commercial packages.

Is this already in existence? And if not, how would one go about gathering free-software developers to make it?

Autism-free zone edition.

The last thread had little to no discussion on the events in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Let's try to keep things on topic this time, because I'm interested to hear what mah comrades on Lainchan have to say about the recent acts of direct action against the State, and having a rational discussion about it on any other imageboard is pretty much impossible.

Also, while this is a general thread, I'm posting William Gillis' critique of anarcho-primitivism. Gillis kind of sucks, but his critique is spot-on and it segues into a general problem with anarchists today: Too many anarchists are either ignorant of tech and especially cyber-security - often to their detriment - or are outright against it. So I want to open up the discussion on technology and anarchism as well.

so the basic argument against anarchism seems to be "as it has been, so it always shall be", which is

b) trying to paint this picture that human pre-historical society was uniform, which flies in the face of almost all research.

Would text randomization help protect even a little aganinst tracking? What im talk1ng aboout is writing a prgrm to randomiz3 text aubmitted to chans, forumz, etc.. replacing regular words with 1337 speek or random misspellings as well as lack or presence of punctiation, spacing, and using synonyms. in theory this could help protect people who may be tracked based upon their syntax and method of writing (formality, commonly used words, commonly misspelled words.....) by randomizing all of their text.,
Of course, this could certainly identify users of the script/sofware, but perhaps if the majority of people (say, it was bundled with Tails Tor Browser) were using it that would become useless? thoughts

That would be one /dimensionality/ in the statistics spectrum. Think cadence, think punctuation, lead in articles or prepositions.


Isn't it better to be identified as someone trying to hide their identity than as who you actually irl directly. Some perfect writing style transformation algorithm that is indistinguishable from a normal human from a random location with random personal quirks might be best, but I'm not sure that it's strictly necessary for being anonymous.
Is this not analogous to how it's better to be caught 'suspiciously' using tor than to be caught sending your incriminating information in clear text?

Following the recent introduction of internet data retention, this year the Australian Census has changed; for the first time, data will be linked to names and addresses. There is something especially creepy about the government coming to your door demanding your correct information or else you can be fined (possibly exorbitantly via endless repetition of denied requests worth $180 each, although this hasn't actually been implemented before as far as I know).

Some political parties are calling for concerned citizens to boycott, namely the Pirate Party. Many people online say they plan to put nonsense answers or just incorrect ones. Lack of anonymity certainly makes people less likely to answer truthfully to potentially embarrassing questions such as sexual preference.

What would you do? Boycott? My main issue with doing that is that it will probably provide especially golden data: a succinct list of many who distrust the government and care about privacy. And also that it would flag me personally. It would be so nice to have a relatively successful boycott though... but I doubt it will happen... the country is full of state-loving imbeciles, even more so than the US.

I'm actually pro-census for the purpose of collecting statistical data and was looking forward to putting Greco-Roman pagan under religion. However, I cannot, in good conscience, allow myself to be part of data collection of this kind that retains name and address information. Even if the ABS had any measure of security, Australia's data retention laws and co-operation with global information control make it worthless when it comes to protecting individuals.


I plan to not participate. Others in my household plan to do it, but haven't yet because the site was down on the census night.

acceptable. been doing this for most of my conscious life. i focus on a few particular things but i'd call myself a generalist.

i built a career of being a programmer for the last 15+ years. i write clean, effective code when i want to. good is subjective. i build my own stuff to my liking and things for my employer to their liking. i am also a frothing free software zealot.

>Or you're really good at building and soldering?

i solder quite well and assemble electronic things with relative ease. it's been a few years since i've designed and built something myself, though. most everything recently has been kit based.


i've organized a couple of events but i don't have the time to keep up with it.


i make a little extra income off pentesting. mostly skidiot stuff with some breaking and entering but it pays the bills. i'm not out discovering exploits but i'm no dummy, either.


i don't really care about ricing things.

>Or fixing broken stuff?

i fix stuff pretty well and i try to fix everything i can. it's getting harder to do that with all this disposable tech, though.

Quit pretending to be a badass. If you want to actually provide badass insight, you gotta know what the fuck you're talking about.

If you seriously believe this imageboard wasn't on the 3-letter agency radar by now, you're retarded. Sure, the userbase is not entirely well-versed in Computer Science and Engineering, but there are some members that probably are, and there are threads that encourage people to improve these skills. These people are 'potential targets', kept on a list to be examined further. Everything posted here is loud, but he's not announcing his SSN or anything related to his identity. Only Lainchan admins and whomever might have backdoors have access to the site logs. As it stands though, things would be different if he claimed he were associated with ISIS or the Taliban. It is very unlikely that we are being seriously considered for terrorism surveillance by the US Govt.

Good evening, dear /cyb/.

Right at the beginning I would like to mention that I am a complete novice in this field.
Nevertheless, I would be very interested if there is someone who can tell me or us something about the group called "Cicada 3301".
A few years ago I became aware of it and have been trying to solve this mystery/puzzle. Unfortunately without success.

What fascinated me personally, is that belief system of these people and how technological knowledge is connected with occultism and "spirituality" (especially of Aleister Crowley and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky).
On various websites ("absurd") theories have been proposed, such as that behind this group stuck intelligence agencies (Mossad, GCHQ, MI5, MI6, NSA, and other) or "secret societies", who want to recruit in this way new offspring.

Even though I have not solved the puzzle, I believe that behind this group are a handful of MIT students who care about privacy, data security, cryptography and steganography. Throughout against mass surveillance.
But that's just a guess on my part. Maybe I'm completely wrong.

I have recently found a person named "Nox Populi" on YouTube.
He has made some videos on this topic, which I find very interesting and informative.
If anyone is interested:

2013 Cicada winner's overview of 3301 - First in new Cicada 3301 series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0z03ntMJio

2012 Cicada 3301 Solutions Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad_DNgdc35A

2012 Cicada 3301 Solutions Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSvwuaVm23E

Unfortunately, there is no video, that explains what happened to the people who have solved the puzzle.
For this reason I write this message to ask if there are one or more graduates who could perhaps tell me or us something about the group and their objectives.

I would appreciate answers and thank you in advance.

Not having enough sleep affects on your mind in (somehow) funny way. For examle, when i don't sleep for just one night, i can hear voices in riding train's noise. They usually are like my friends' voices, but not always. Also, sometimes you can even hear music this way (i once did, it was some pretty good hardrock or industrial, but i couldn't hear voices clearly). However, hearing non-existing sounds is usually bad thing, so if it happens to you, check your condition and fix it, if possible.

Here's a list of content I find to be cyber-culturally relevant and worthy of being backed up / mirrored so it's preserved for further generations of lainons/cyberpunks.

Another reason for backing up this stuff would be to keep it for personal access, even when shit/TTIP/gov take downs hit the fan (or when the content disappears for any other reason).

The lists is far from complete and I'd love it if you check it out, contribute links / content / whatever or backup (part of) the stuff on the list.

I've also backed up some sites of lainons I know personally (and of some others I don't), but I've removed those links from the version I uploaded here.

tldr; this is a list of cool cyber stuff; I want your input on other cool stuf; you might wanna backup some of it

no, it doesn't. They have to know that the Russians and Chinese are constantly trying to breach their networks, they'd just have to set up an easy honeypot and wait for them to find it.

I heard it at the presentation at cccamp15.
It's also in the whitepaper in the repo: https://github.com/maidsafe/Whitepapers/blob/master/Project-Safe.md

> Five percent of the safecoin issue will be laid aside for these investors and as safecoin is increasing in value, current investors will be able to swap their shareholding in MaidSafe.net for the coins.

It also seems like there'll be a crowdsale of "premined" coins by the company: https://github.com/maidsafe/Whitepapers/blob/master/Project-Safe.md#b-crowd-sale-participants
>A crowd sale will enable everyone worldwide to seed and be a part of the SAFE project. This will last until MaidSafeCoin are sold out (circa $8million). If the all coins are not sold the event will end after 30 days. The crowd sale will enable a direct purchase up to ten percent of MaidSafeCoin.

Sounds pretty ponzi to me but you're of course free to sink your money into it still.

>The thing is that most of this things are "what if" and hipothetical situations.
Again, the data the NSA collects has already been abused and now that every federal agency has access to it that will happen more often. Private companies are collecting this information so they can more effectively try to manipulate your opinions and views of the world for their monetary benefit and you should therefore be concerned about giving them anything (and no longer is that done by just blocking cookies in your browser). Furthermore, there is no not worrying about this information collection until they start doing something bad with it because by then it will be to late. We no longer live in a time where all you have to worry about are wiretaps or other snooping in real time, now it's completely possible for them to look back at what websites you were going to or who you were texting and what you were talking about a year ago (or possibly even further back as the NSA's capability's have expanded since the Snowden leaks). Companies that do background checks already collect fucktons of information from various places, what's to keep them from getting some of the other data that's already out there on people's private lives so that companies can know whether a person could make them look bad or for other reasons (Riot Games already asks for any accounts you have on their servers so they can check your chat logs for that purpose)? I've already lived to see low paying entry level jobs require you to do personality checks to make sure you line up with what they want.

The LainWiki is now online at http://0xa484e61f/~lainwiki

Maybe I will buy a domain name or register a .tk.

The purpose of this wiki is to store and share knowledge.

It is freely editable.

Share your opinion and conseils.

I'm not sure which board this belongs in, but I guess it's pretty /cyb/ so this one is as good as any

I came across this website, skullcode.com, I'm sure some of you lains already know it.

Did you guys ever figure out it's mysteries? The skull is thinking to itself "00005fe4" and I don't know what it means. I feel like there is some sort of code I must enter but I can't figure out what it would be.

So, now that it is clear that Tor got rid of Appelbaum not because he did something wrong, but because a handful others wanted him gone (and get his job); and seeing that after the allegations collapsed, the initiators of the smear campaign are still in charge in the Foundation:

As an operator of a Tor node, should I still run it or stop supporting Tor?

Pro running:
It helps people, that's what's important
Foundation is independent of nodes

Con running:
We can't trust the Foundation anymore
Don't want to support intrigues and scheming, this has nothing to do with Tor's core idea
Disapprove of Steele, Isis and Alison still being in charge
