It's not real. I've seen terrible things on the internet, but stuff that's truly important is kept hidden extremely well. If the US military for example were to have something similar to Tor but more secure and someone like you found out about it, they'd burn it to the ground and use whatever backup technology they had in case of such an event. If there are super secret organizations or sites out there, you will never find them. I've been digging for years, and I've found some really spoopy shit, but still nothing that truly shocked me.

Why the fuck does this stupid filter even exist? On work provided computers, this shit is integrated into the computer and tracks your location constantly and you can't end it's process in the task manager/monitor.

At the same time, it is always using your network regardless of your internet browser being opened or not.

How it's "integrated"? I bet you can boot alternative operating system on that computer to bypass all botnet crap. Just don't write to main HDD if you gonna use that computer like that. Don't do anything non-work-related on spyware-d (by employer and Microsoft) operating system.

First, be straight and talk about it with your boss. You can take his/her hand and ask him/her to read iboss's AUP together at iboss.com/acceptable-use-policy , which contains the following text:
"Customer understands and agrees that: (i) the Company Property may be used for legal purposes only; (ii) Customer is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary and appropriate consents from End-Users to access, monitor, modify and use the Registered Devices via the Company Property; (iii) Customer shall not access, monitor, modify or use such Registered Devices via the Company Property without obtaining the prior written consent from each applicable End-User; and (iv) Customer shall not use the Company Property in any manner which exceeds the scope of any consents obtained pursuant to subparts “ii” and “iii”."

If you (the End-User) don't consent, and your boss/employer/IT department (Company) doesn't voluntarily turn the service off, please contact iboss technical support team at iboss.com/support

Can someone actually explain to a tech beginner anon what exactly is this chip and what does it do? Some sources are also welcome.

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:47:42 [Preview] No. 9220 del
I actually learned about it watching defcon videos, so I can't quote any links, but I am sure another anon will step forward with some.

Basically it's a separate processor which has a security level which exceeds your operating system. It's to create a secure boot process, apparently.

I'm a little foggy on AMD PSP but it's pretty similar to the IntelME. The ME (short for management engine) is a micro controller inside of the CPU. Firmware for the IntelME is stored in the same EEPROM chip as the BIOS firmware. The frontend of the ME is called AMT, which does a couple of other things too but mostly allows for configuration. The IntelME is officially advertised as a remote management tool. You can do stuff like update the OS or even the BIOS of a bunch of PCs in a closet somewhere and you don't have to touch a single one. The ME also runs below (or I should say independently) of the BIOS, bootloaders, and OS. Fantastic for large companies and frightening for home users. The ME has full system memory and TCP/IP stack access. It can control the CPU cores and I think it's safe to assume that it can also record keystrokes and circumvent your OS firewall. The ME can also send and receive network packets. Most models depend on an Intel wireless card to do this but IIRC some models don't. There's absolutely no reason why it should be present in consumer CPUs, as the average user has no uses for it. If you tried to plysically destroy the ME, your computer would shut off every 30 minutes because the ME manages the CPU cores and interacts with the hardware in such a way that it keeps the CPU cores running. Nobody outside of Intel fully understands how it works. It can now be neutralized with software called ME Cleaner that modifies the ME firmware. You need a Raspberry Pi 3, GPIO cables, and a clip to do it. It requires removing the motherboard of your PC. If you fuck it up, the computer will cease to function.

I was using a Thinkpad T400 for a really long time with Libreboot because I was able to disable the ME. ME Cleaner came out late last year. I've since switched to a Thinkpad T420 with an i5 that uses Coreboot as the BIOS and all is well.

It shouldn't be too hard. Just make some aliases, add some environment variables for pass and you're pretty much done.

This is a great browser because when you press escape it opens another window.It has a detailed list of privacy settings.You cant change anything but it lists what is out of your hands. It tells me who I am.I've got nothing to hide. The fake news blocker is crutial for staying informed. What more do you need? This is evolution.

Deleting Old Accounts Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:37:43 [Preview] No. 9169 [Reply]
What's the best way to go about deleting old accounts on websites I no longer use? I don't want my info available if these websites get hacked. A lot of sites don't have the option to delete your account yourself. Should I email their support and ask them to delete my account? That will leave an email record if their email ever gets hacked. Should I just leave these sites alone and hope for the best?

If you decide to delete an account that belongs to you on a website, know that the data that is linked to your account may still exist on the host's databases. It is a good idea to read the website's Terms Of Service to know what will happen when you use their services. On websites that allow you to delete your account with a few steps, you should delete all your data on the account and then delete the account without attempting to log into it again. If the website does not allow you to delete your account, then you should attempt to delete all the data linked with the account, change the password to a long string of random letters, numbers, and symbols, and never log in to the account again.

From this point forward, it is recommended that you should learn about the website hosting the services you plan to use and remembering that you should NOT upload your personal information onto the internet.

I couldn't delete my Stormfront account as well and mods refuse to do so.
Just click on username, slam your keyboard, change your email to 10minutemail.net address, slam the keyboard in the url bar, copy it in password field and click save.
Remove all unwanted posts if you can.

A few of my posts on other imageboards were strangely deleted for "breaking the rules", so I am afraid that they may be compromised.

But listen to this advice:
Unless you can fully Audit software yourself, you should assume that it is doing work behind your back. Many audits on the can be faked, and what is the chance that you will attempt to confirm that it is fake? 99% of people do not have the time or knowledge to audit something as large as a linux system.

If you are truly paranoid, you should drop computers completely or start coding your own programs.

Dude, in future, lead with an image like that. It's really good.

The 8ch/tech mods are the same as here but it's much slower here so not as much gets deleted. They tend to be a little twitchy on the delete button because that's the way the BO wants it, and many agree they don't want another /g which slid badly under zero moderation for years on 4chan.

>This board is badly moderated in my opinion.

Your opinion + $3 will get you a cup of coffee.

Besides, what you go on to describe isn't shitty moderation, but a shitty userbase. And the userbase of every imageboard I'm aware of at the moment is fucking garbage. I suppose a moderator could delete posts by shitty users, but if they did that, the board would be left with nothing but a handful of posts I made months ago before I stopped coming here regularly. Unfortunately, there were only ever 2-3 good posters here. I was, by far, the best, and I'm not even that great.

As for your OP, what you're saying is mostly true, but it's not particularly interesting. Yes, you have to audit programs or write them yourself in order to trust that there's no malicious intent in them. But, as the poster who posted the pdf on the "Trusting Trust" attack points out, that's not enough. Here's where it gets even more fucked up: there is a mitigation for the "Trusting Trust" attack. It's called "diverse double compiling". You can look up the guy who came up with it for his Ph.D. dissertation. Name's Wheeler.

The thing is, it doesn't matter. So you know your compiler isn't compromised. Fine. What about the silicon you're running it on? Who audited that? Got an electron microscope and the semiconductor engineering chops to do it yourself?

You can stop using computers, personally, if you want. You're still in them. Unless you go up to the Canadian north and live a primitive, subsistence hunter-gatherer lifestyle, you're in the Black Iron Prison, baby.

Relax. WWIII is coming soon, then it'll all be over.
