Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #christianity, #linux, and #starwars.


 
I missed good old #Winamp. Lucky for me, Linux and #Audacious solved this problem just fine. Brilliant! 😜

Haiku OS - an open-source operating system that isn't GNU/Linux or BSD!


I've watched the Haiku OS project (http://www.haiku-os.org/) from afar for years now, and I'm excited to see that the latest release (https://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku/release-notes/) seems to show quite a lot of activity and progress! It's definitely worth keeping an eye on. While I don't really see myself going for a bare-metal install, just yet, I'm going to attempt a VM install this evening, if time permits - so stay tuned, as I'll be reporting back with my experience and initial take on it in the coming days!

If you've used Haiku OS I'd love to hear what you have to say about the experience!

I'd also love to learn about any other less-mainstream OSes. Not so much GNU/Linux distros, but novel and less derivative OSes that you may have come across, particularly projects that are under the radar with active repos!

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora*


We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

#Linux Testwoche Tag 21


Huch? Ich wollte doch nur eine Woche testen. Jetzt sind es schon 3!

Um ehrlich zu sein, ich habe auch bei weiten nicht alles ausprobiert was ich ausprobieren wollte. Da ich beruflich in den letzten 2 Wochen aufgrund hoher Ausfälle stark in Anspruch genommen wurde, lag es mir fern abends noch viel am Rechner zu basteln. Ich habe also einfach nur benutzt - das klappt erstaunlich gut und ohne Murren. Die wichtigsten Programme laufen: bei #Thunderbird habe ich es endlich geschafft die Optik nach meinen Wünschen anzupassen und Filter anzulegen, die Browser funktionieren sowieso und der Grund weswegen mein Rechner unter #Windows damals nicht in den #Energiesparmodus wollte, konnte ich hier reproduzieren und die Ursache herausfinden. Ein angeschlossenes #Gamepad war der Verursacher.

Jetzt heißt es erstmal entspannen

Jetzt steht bei mir eine Woche #Urlaub an, wo ich natürlich etwas mehr Zeit am Rechner verbringe als normal. Da wird das eine oder andere doch endlich ausprobiert: #Videoschnitt steht da oben auf der Liste. Doch wie es so ist mit Urlaub, man nimmt sich so viel vor und am Ende lag man doch wieder nur auf dem Sofa und hat seine Lieblingsserie durchgeschaut - zum 4. Male 😄

Man kann ja zumindest mal was kleines testen

Aber da wir gerade vom #Videoschnitt unter #Linux reden: Ich habe die letzten 6 Jahre unter #Windows mit #Magix gearbeitet, kann mir jemand ein #Programm für den #Schnitt auf #Linux empfehlen, welches zumindest in der Bedienbarkeit und Stabilität an Magix herankommt? Dann hab ich schonmal den ersten Schritt abgeschlossen mich durch die #Wikis zu lesen und 12 #Programme zu installieren und 11 wieder zu deinstallieren, vielen Dank!

#Windows starten? Wenigstens Updates zu installieren?

So langsam hat sich bei mir inzwischen das Gefühl eingestellt, dass ich #Windows gar nicht mehr brauche und #Linux schon ewig nutze. Alles scheint dort zu sein, wo ich es schon immer haben wollte, nichts geht mir auf die Nerven, und das Problem mit dem #VLC das ich vor kurzem hatte, schien sich in Luft aufzulösen, trat es seit ich um Hilfe bat nicht mehr auf.

Jetzt bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass der Pod auf dem ich das schreibe, das in Zukunft herausfiltern muss, weil ich urheberrechtlich geschützte Programmnamen genutzt habe :D #Artikel13 #Vossisdoof #NeulandNeulandüberalles

Hello, I'm #newhere to #Diaspora pod Diasp.org.


* I first heard about #Diaspora six months ago, but I finally decided to get involved and see what it's all about. I've been on here for a short time before deciding to create my first post of engagement and see what this website and #community has to offer me and what I can offer it.* I'm hoping to inject some positivity and leave something meaningful throughout the #Diaspora #community if nothing else.
  • If you have upvoted, liked, followed, shared this introduction, much is appreciated!

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Should we ensure the website is safe before linking to it?


Actually some do. Posts that don’t feature a website’s images (with the OEmbed box unchecked as below) can actually protect Federation users from a serious amount of surveillance.

Some thoughtful users actually reproduce the article’s main points in their post, to protect their readers from visiting the site itself. They usually supply a link to the original content if one wants more detail and perhaps is protected with tracker blockers. So how do we know a site we recommend is safe?

Here are some privacy tips:


• Consider checking the page’s security/privacy before linking to it.

Using Tor, or a beefed-up Firefox fork or version (for detecting digital fingerprinting), and/or Disconnect, NoScript or Ublock Origin add-ons to reveal a multitude of trackers.




[:]

• There is usually more than one website featuring the same story. Consider picking the website with the least trackers and digital fingerprinting.

• Issue a warning in your post about any of the site’s surveillance methods and privacy issues you’ve detected.

• Embedding a picture/video could also make users vulnerable. Consider unchecking the OEmbed box.




In the next post I’ll give examples of a number of websites with low privacy and excessive trackers, commonly featured in the public feeds.

Then we'll get into some actual #news with some changes to #Flathub, new releases for #Geary, #Digikam, #RiotIM, #KaliLinux, BackBox, and much more. We'll also check out some interesting views about #ARM shared by #LinusTorvalds. All that and much more!

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora\*


We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora\* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.

better safe than sorry - CheckPoint Security found security problems in OpenSource and closed source rdp clients/servers - mstsc microsoft remote desktop rdp client - how to disable clipboard sharing

CheckPoint Security found security problems in OpenSource and closed source rdp clients/servers – the product vendors including MS have been informed and everybody except MS will update their products. X-D

a hacked rdp server can „attack“ the client – in the moment – the client pastes content from server (files or other stuff) – at this moment a malicious/compromised server running outside of corporate LAN could place a file at any path of the client (autostart folder) and run it next time the system boots. not cool.

proposed solution: disable clipboard sharing

Image/photo

… obviously sharing other resources with the server then is also unsafe. folders of course but maybe even printers?

more research would have to be conducted in this field.

my proposed solution: internet access from within the corporate LAN can not be done anymore.

set your router/firewall to only accept connections from certain IPs or even better: pull the plug.

All internet access needs to be done from computers that are NOT connected to the corporate LAN, e.g. via demilitarized WIFI only.

Microsoft’s Response:

During the responsible disclosure process, we sent the details of the path traversal in mstsc.exe to Microsoft.

This is Microsoft’s official response:

“Thank you for your submission. We determined your finding is valid but does not meet our bar for servicing. For more information, please see the Microsoft Security Servicing Criteria for Windows (https://aka.ms/windowscriteria).”

As a result, this path traversal has no CVE-ID, and there is no patch to address it.

Any of the !Friendica Admins using this:

It worked pretty well for the backup part, but I did not test to restore.

@Gargron So if my profile bio had #Linux, a person could click that and see the rest of my toots with that hashtag?


 
#linux #mint

So... I've failed at step 1 of installing Linux Mint. Or maybe it's step 2. Anyhow, I cannot verify the ISO image. I have to do it on Windows, not Linux.

Attempt 1: I've tried installing cygwin, as the Linux site proposes, but I couldn't get it to find the right directory to do the check.

Attempt 2: I tried through the command line, but I couldn't find the right command.

Attempt 3: I'm now trying something called Gpg4win using Kleopatra, following the instructions on howtogeek.com and I can't get it to work so far. This has been a fun afternoon.

Any suggestions welcome, but I'm not in the mood for sarcasm just now (other than my own, obviously).
