X Chromosome Study in Mice Hints at Why Women Get More Autoimmune Issues (by Carly Cassella) http://bit.ly/2smfzK8

Comment

"New research on mice has found a possible explanation for why autoimmune diseases are more common in females, and it has to do with their extra X chromosome."

Linux Bug Opens Most VPNs to Hijacking "In a coffee-shop scenario, attackers can hijack "secure" VPN sessions of those working remotely, injecting data into their TCP streams." http://bit.ly/2PijGyV

Comment

The bug affects macOS, iOS and Android, most Linux distributions including Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian, as well as Unix-like OS such as FreeBSD and OpenBSD. At particular risk are those Linux distros that use a version of systemd pulled after November 28 of last year, which turned reverse path filtering off, researchers warned. The IPv4 version of CentOS has been confirmed as unaffected.

Comment

As for VPN technology, researchers found that a proof-of-concept exploit works against OpenVPN, WireGuard and IKEv2/IPSec, and they’re in the process of testing Tor.

 ‎· silpol
Comment

“The VPN technology used does not seem to matter and we are able to make all of our inferences even though the responses from the victim are encrypted, using the size of the packets and number of packets sent (in the case of challenge ACKs, for example) to determine what kind of packets are being sent through the encrypted VPN tunnel,” according to the advisory.

 ‎· silpol
Comment

The bug has been reported to distros and the Linux kernel security team, as well as to others impacted such as Systemd, Google, Apple, OpenVPN, and WireGuard.

Note: not Linux-specific, works on FreeBSD and Darwin, too, iirc. When encrypting a connection, it's hard to obfuscate packet lengths, for instance, acks and stuff remains short. Sequence numbers are also vulnerable. That's why something like ZeroTier should be much harder to break.

Comment

Бендер — комический антигерой, сквернослов, алкоголик, заядлый курильщик сигар, почитатель порнографии для роботов (в виде электрических схем), клептоман, повар (его еда в большинстве случаев по меньшей мере несъедобна, часто опасна для жизни). В критической ситуации зачастую единственный, кто впадает в панику. В серии Benderama он был полным лентяем. Обычно Бендер ведёт себя как законченный эгоист, циник, мизантроп, однако изредка в нём просыпается сочувствие (например, к черепахе в эпизоде «Crimes of the Hot») и дружеская привязанность к Фраю. В некоторых эпизодах Футурамы Бендер является главным действующим лицом.

Comment

“What’s particularly troubling is that products like KRAIT are designed to silently infect and invisibly surveil even ‘paranoid targets’ who might have a high level of digital security awareness,” says Bill Marczak, a researcher at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab who led early research into Hacking Team.

What Swiss Watch Exports Tell Us About The State Of The Global Economy http://bit.ly/2psi3Wg

Comment

"We can think of no other market than high-end Swiss watches that better exemplifies the changes in the global economy since 2000."

 ‎· silpol
Comment

well, there is a major confusion when Rolex and Patek are considered to be in the same niche.

 ‎· machine does not surrender 4
Comment

This is just another PR piece of Swiss watch industry, designed to give an impression that things are relatively OK (which is why Patek and Rolex are aggregated), and to shift the blame to “changes in global economy”. This is wrong: Swiss watch industry is currently in a deep crisis (once again), and things are getting worse year after year. Unless a radical solution (like introducing Swatch in the epoch of quartz boom) will be proposed, Swiss watches will rapidly become a thing of the past :(

Last time in Switzerland I've seen huge silly ads all over the airport dedicated to bullshit like "swiss watch with a crypto wallet" etc etc. How pathetic.

@sorhed : I have soft spot for EBEL. And few Japanese names (not brands). And I don't care about epochs and quartz. The only thing which actually stops me to buy - I'm not sure I can adjust back to watch on my hand.
