If this is as bad as they claim we are very lucky that all wifi routers in the world are regularly upgraded and everyone will patch this in no time....

KRACK Attacks: Breaking WPA2

Bild/Foto

This website presents the Key Reinstallation Attack (KRACK). It breaks the WPA2 protocol by forcing nonce reuse in encryption algorithms used by Wi-Fi.


Severe flaw in WPA2 protocol leaves Wi-Fi traffic open to eavesdropping
KRACK attack allows other nasties, including connection hijacking and malicious injection.

My router is so old I should probably have replaced it long ago. The advantage is it has no wifi...

Our main attack is against the 4-way handshake, and does not exploit access points, but instead targets clients. So it might be that your router does not require security updates. We strongly advise you to contact your vendor for more details. In general though, you can try to mitigate attacks against routers and access points by disabling client functionality (which is for example used in repeater modes) and disabling 802.11r (fast roaming). For ordinary home users, your priority should be updating clients such as laptops and smartphones.

@Michael thanks for pointing this out, I read this too, after my post.

I spotted this post on Mastodon just this moment: https://mastodon.social/@stsp/98837563531323569

I started reading this book. It's postapocalyptic fiction about a world were cars don't work anymore and messages are delivered by bicycle messengers. Sounds like the perfect book for me. There are some things that appear very constructed and not quite logical but all in all I quite enjoy it.

Sounds interesting:-)

yes and I tried to read a bit, unfortunately there are quite a high percentage of words I cannot sense the right meaning, so it is not that much fun it could be. Story abstract sounds interesting!

@groovehunter what are these words?

The Open Source ecosystem: the forgotten victim of EU copyright reform - OpenForum Europe

Bild/Foto

EU copyright reform is on track to inadvertently undermine Europe’s open source ecosystem. As European lawmakers in Brussels prepare to vote, Open Forum Europe and the Free Software Foundation Europe call for developers and internet users to action. We need to draw attention to a proposal that will undermine the fundamentals of Open Source and collaborative development. Today we are launching our SAVE CODE SHARE platform and are calling for lawmakers to fundamentally rethink  Article 13 of the EU Copyright Reform to protect  Free and Open Source Software. KDE, GitHub, OpenUK, Open Knowledge International and 4000 more companies, organisations and Read More

From the amount of music that comes from Iceland, I think the whole population is in at least two bands.
Beni Grind
  
@elmussol I think that's pretty close to the truth.

Listening to #YTCracker on the the train home. Honestly I don't think it's healthy to to listen to too much hip hop. I might need some cleansing #Grindcore after this...

IProbably nobody noticed this but grindcore.ch was IPv6 only for one night. Somehow the PF rules didn't come up cleanly after the upgrade to #FreeBSD 11.1.
Beni Grind
  
Does it? It's probably because it's running on a (mostly) dedicated box and I'm pretty much the only user on it.

Oh Yeah!
Just visited your profile. Smokin' hot fast. The fastest Hubzilla I have ever seen so far.
Beni Grind
  
@tobias to me it usually feels quite sluggish. Maybe that's only because I never post anything. I never do any server maintenance apart from upgrading the system.

@grmpyoldman I tried to follow you from my #Hubzilla instance. I see your posts. Apparently the exchange is one-directional as you ask for @notnavigium

Just discovered another reason to use my Fairphone 2 googfree:


An Android 6 factory reset performed through recovery mode will NOT delete any Google account login information stored on the phone.
This is a safety measure Google implemented with Android 6 to add an extra layer of security. As soon as you reboot the phone you will be asked to log into the Google account which was registered on the phone at the time of the reset.


I hate these "security measures" which only give the goog more control over your phone.

Extra layer of security? For Google maybe, not for the user.

@Hubzilla Support Forum+

Hey all,

I've got a channel which I manage with someone else. I gave them permission to manage said channel. It works flawlessely for them to switch to this channel, but then two things seem weird:
  • In the top left avatar menu they see all my channels to select from, not only the one I delegated. Then of course they have no permission to use one of the other listed channels.
  • I wasn't able to find a way to switch back to their usual channel. When they try to access the channel manager it says "permission denied". The only way to switch is to log out and log in again.


It this my Hub malfunctioning or is this the intended behaviour?

Thanks,

Beni

#1 is a #bug
#2 IIRC is a known limitation

Thanks @Mario Vavti ! As a workaround of #1 I disabled the menu channel selection.

#1 should be fixed now

Hey all,

A few questions regarding 2.6RC and CardDav integration in core:

Where did the documentation of the correct caldav/carddav end point go? I remember looking this up on the plugin page.

Secondly, where do I activate caldav access for a certain channel. The Android app doesn't accept any of the possible end points I tried.

Thanks!

Beni

Haha, okay. Is it possible for use to run another hubchart site or mirror it someone? I never looked into how that actually works.

Hey all,

Is the CardDAV address book import supposed to work? I tried to import a vcf export from my Nextcloud instance and it didn't do anything. Clicking the upload button didn't showed absolutely no reaction.

When I look at the http requests Hubzilla sends, there is no request being sent when clicking. Furthermore the Javascript console also doesn't show any error.
