HP keylogger Anonymous 12/10/2017 (Sun) 20:13:39 [Preview] No. 11897 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
>TL;DR: HP had a keylogger in the keyboard driver. The keylogger saved scan codes to a WPP trace. The logging was disabled by default but could be enabled by setting a registry value (UAC required).

Because most of them are dumb fucks that don't see a point about that, since they see it as "conspiracy theory".

You know what sucks about discord is you can't use TOR to register a username anonymously. Sure you can use it, but as soon as you change IPs once they send an e-mail verification and then demand mobile verification before you can continue to use discord.

OK, I'll never use this service then.

Medically speaking red fluorescent lightning. Green if you need shades, blue for the blind. Dark on low light: keeps eyes calm non-stressed. Other things include raised desktop to stand and walk, split ortholinear keyboard, small desktop or window to leaves the eyes still as possible. Treadmill on monitor with a pad keyboard is best.

Newb programming question Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:13:10 [Preview] No. 11858 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Hey guys, I wanted to write a script that will halve hex colour values and add together all possible combinations from 16 colours, making 256 colours. I suppose I could just halve the values to begin with, so really all I need to do is add hex value together to create all possible combinations. I have some python experience but still muddling through. Rare pepe for troubles.

Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:25:42 [Preview] No.11859 del
I don't think there is a library to do hex math directly in python. I think I need to define a hex converter, convert to int, do the sum, convert back.

Anonymous 12/08/2017 (Fri) 15:18:26 [Preview] No.11878 del
That's cool, but it's not really what I'm after. The way I think this should be handled is with 16 lists, each containing the red, green and blue value. eg:
rgb0 = [21, 21, 21]
rgb1 = [32, 32, 32]
rgb2 = [48, 48, 48]

I want to find all possible combinations of adding the values in those lists one to each other at a time. I can do one on one with numpy:
import numpy as np
np.add(rgb0, rgb0)
np.add(rgb0, rgb1)
np.add(rgb0, rgb2)
np.add(rgb1, rgb1)
np.add(rgb1, rgb2)
np.add(rgb2, rgb2)

What I think I need now is some logic to do it in sequence. I know there will be duplicates but thankfully the total combination will be 256 which is the exact number of colours in a palette. Then just to output to file.

I could not register. Anyway, ssh being able to disclose stuff like client ciphers and version, terminal options including size, "anonymous" user's PUBLIC KEY or connect username are bad things for anonymous messaging.

Any alternative? We did some research here in the past (see >>10507 ), but we could only find Ricochet (weak cyphers), Briar (still in beta and don't seem have desktop support yet, just mobile) and Jitsi (weak for instant messaging, but uses ZRTP for video). Other clients have good security but bad sides, such as Signal (require phone number) and others.
The more "advanced" solutions (irssi + OMEMO or OTR) is too complicated for normies to set up, so it's not actually usable outside of our imageboard leet culture.
I still think that Briar is good, but laks some vulnerability mitigation that Signal Protocol employ today. A version of Signal that reduces to the maximum the metadata and has a command optional command line interface would be the ideal, but this solution doesn't seem to be done as of today.

Modernized $CRT/$ Terminal Anonymous 12/01/2017 (Fri) 11:15:36 [Preview] No. 11825 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Has anyone here used a monochrome phosphor CRT with a modern machine? Say, a monitor with a 9-pin serial/re9/rs232 cable with a more modern PC. Also, this will just be a terminal screen. Possibly with w3m images. Here are some options I've thought up. I haven't picked out a monitor yet.

VGA/serial adaptor
These adapters are common. Don't know if they would work.
CGA video card output or other period correct, oem matched card
Don't know how the fuck I would use this on a modern board.
Some other 9 pin display video output
''Maybe there is an old PC with Core Duo or Pentium with serial display? I was born in '96, so I'm not too savvy on 20 year old graphics hardware'

I know that the green Macintosh CRT's are pretty cheap and use a 9-pin, but the pin out is proprietary. Chime in if you have experience with these things! Am I over thinking this?

They tend to have smoother/cleaner looking images projected onto the screen due to the fact that they use an electron gun to illuminate a phosphorous coating towards the front of the tube instead of electronic pixels which can be clearly distinguished if one places their face closely to the screen. Of course, cathode ray tubes would not be ideal in other applications due to their high rate of energy consumption and radiation output.

I personally like them, you can fix it yourself with some electronic engineering knowledge and the proper tools, and they are interesting to use.

You could always use an old machine as a serial terminal to a Linux box. Serial-to-USB adapters also exist, which would make it a bit more accessible hardware-wise. You would lose the benefits of UTF-8 but probably far easier than nigger rigging a pre-vga monitor to a modern machine. You could even set up your own dial-up interface if you are brave.

Personally I have an old Pentium 1 era machine with an old CRT (has ISA slots so I could feasibly do monochrome/cga if I had the card + monitor) running FreeDOS for something like that. It uses 10base ethernet and Telnet to a 15+ year old headless Linux box though because I am lazy and have the hardware laying around. I mostly use it for writing since I really like the capacitive switch AT keyboard I have for it. A friend of mine does the same with a 486 and a raspi.

I'm really liking the DEC terminals. The VT520 is still being made by Boundless. Think I'll just drop a little extra money for the 520. I have an Rpi2b. FreeBSD works with all the hardware before rpi3. I'm running OpenBSD (I know, de raadt is giant dickhead) on a librebooted x60, so this terminal is mainly for kicks. Plus I don't think I've actually seen mono in person. I remember seeing color terminals in the library as a little kid, but never mono.

Any comments are welcome.
Let's wait for "Endwall" to update. If you want to spread it to other communities, please post it here too, so we can keep following the criticism and improving it.

As for the other thread ( >>11660 ), I'll share my 'research' (nothing big, really) on this thread, but there's too many information to put on the list, so I thought it would be better to just discuss it here first.
