I have a Playstation 3, but I don't really know what to do with it. Jailbreaking it is impossible, and this sucks. Right now it is hooked up to my CRT tv, since it is the only thing i had in house that had an analogue vudeo output, and i use it to watch netflix, Youtube, Chrunchyroll, and some old cartoons, like Rugrats, Griffin, things like that. But I feel like I've never used it at its full potential. I own it since 2013, unfortunately, before i did not own enough money to buy it by myself, so I was able to get one only by then. And I feel like I've never used too much, in the first time, I've used it a lot, but after some time, i got myself a gaming pc, so now what can I do with this ps3? I think it could be do more than just streaming movies, should I buy some games? Even if I can buy the same game on pc at less price and have it with better graphics only for the sake of having a disc?

>Jailbreaking it is impossible
Are you certain? I know Sony removed the OtherOS feature and has attempted to patch the firmware against exploits that allow jailbreaking, but if you don't have the latest firmware, you may be able to find an exploit.

Also, I don't believe that Sony has achieved firmware with zero security flaws, so there might be some new flaw that could be exploited. I don't know if people are still working on that, though.

If you can't jailbreak it, I think you're probably already exploiting it to the fullest, unless you haven't already set up something like MediaTomb.

Certainly, you could pick up a ton of games for the PS3, probably at bargain prices. That would be enough to keep you busy for quite some time.

Yeah, unless you can get GNU/Linux on that thing it's essentially an over priced brick that only plays certain discs.

I think there is some hard modding you can do but unless you can soft mod that to play pirate games it's a waste of time.

Everything is tied to technology.
If you chose to ignore politics, then you're either condemned to not understand shit ever, or maybe is that because you already know most of the schemes, and so you chose to elevate yourself upon it.
I think that's the first choice, since the second ask for a hell of a lot of studying and book reading. And luck, whatever you call god's providence.

There is no impact of politics in a /diy/ board for exemple based on technology.
But when you're talking about companies, that have or had money from in-q-tel, and are today profiting from industrial spying, that are inserting backdoor according to a political decision of spying on everyone, not even talking about today's ultra materialist philosophy that direct everything, you know, it's pretty hard to not talk about politics/ideology. Even the FSF is promoting an ideology in itself.

You see, that is the problem with depopulation, cognitive dissonance takes place in most individuals, they desire a less populated planet, but themselves want to procreate and have a family.

Just because we have the capabilities to feed 10 billion humans doesn't mean we should, and what happens when that 10 billion turns into a 15 billion which turns into a 30 billion because population grows logarithmically? You will see the population growth primarily occurring in 3rd world countries, most notably by Muslims who's religion allows for polygamy and encourages multiple children, and a population as large as 10 billion would only survive because of our advanced technology, it is highly unlikely for this number to be reached normally, and the technology to allow it to reach this point requires massive amounts of resources.

But I digress, attempting to grasp concepts such as this when it incorporates so much information and requires great knowledge is difficult and leads to failure.

Ok, all your wall of text can be simplified on these arguments:

1- Moral principles. Human life has a essential value and we should protect it.

2- Everything is made to be sold in contemporary society. Therefore the future will be the distopy of comercialisation of life by itself.

3- Intelligence cannot be quantified.

Now, my counter-arguments:

1- Humans are different from other animals that we already use as objects? On what exacly is based your ideas of "moral"? Your philosophical principles seems to be based on some kind of metaphysical essentialism, am I right?

2- Yes. That's the point of capitalism. If you refuse to accept this reality you'll soon be defending communism ideals. Unfortunately we can't give a hug on everyone and start to sing as in Wonderland.

3- I haven't even mentioned IQ. I do not agree with the current model of intelligence quantification. Actually, most of the scientists don't agree with this too, but use it as an intermediary method of research (like the Big Five, on psychology). Inteligence can't be quantified in an precise number, no, but it's clear that there's difference between people reasoning.

The cat's out of the bag. Pandora's Box is opened. You can do stuff with CRISPR at home now with kits you can order online. Granted, the at-home kits don't allow you to modify human genes (it's yeast, actually), but it's a sign of how accessible and widespread this technology is becoming.

There will be (if there aren't already) clandestine labs doing human genetic engineering in places like China, Hong Kong and India. There will be mistakes; horrible monstrosities will be created along with those who have extra intelligence or athletic ability. Genetic plagues, spread by specially-engineered viruses, will become the new biowarfare.

The drug market will change a great deal. CRISPR has already allowed researchers to genetically engineer yeast to produce opioids and opioid precursors. When the technology escapes the lab, high-purity opioids will be ubiquitous and cheap. Any idiot who can brew beer will be able to brew opioids with a self-replicating organism. Rates of opioid addiction will skyrocket, but it won't matter, because people will have access to essentially unlimited quantities of high-purity dope.

CRISPR will also be used by the likes of ELF/ALF and anarcho-primitivists in an attempt to drastically reduce the human population of the earth. They'll engineer pathogens with heretofore-unseen levels of virulence and antibiotic/antiviral resistance. Billions will die, but drastic and draconian quarantine measures will still preserve a significant portion of the human population.

Enjoy yourself. It is later than you think.

Who is "we"? What right have you on anyone on this planet? If you're the president of you country, then you should decide according to your land. You have nothing to say about your neighbor. You're just pointing out how this is mainly a globalist propaganda. A global problem, "we", are the people no this earth, should do something.
At the end, you only have a right on yourself. If you think that it's a good idea to sterilise, or more brutally, create a third world war to massacre the entire world, then you should be interned.

The government is rogue, and only want us enslave. I say it clear and loud, you are a debil, if you think that anything that can produce modernity have any value, and is harmless.

>2- Everything is made to be sold in contemporary society. Therefore the future will be the distopy of comercialisation of life by itself.
I repeated two time my point, and you still ignore it. If you think that capitalism has flaws but is a "good enough" system, because everything else is worste, then seriously, I don't know what to do.
>3- Intelligence cannot be quantified.
I never said so. Intelligence, by its modern meaning, is purely material. Everything in modernity is taken by its material, quantified side, so logically the current understanding of intelligence is only tied to a quantifiable definition. What I'm saying is you can't measure the value of any human being, since he's not only material. I'm not even going with metaphysics in mind, but can you, at least, recognize rationalism?

New FinFisher surveillance campaigns: Internet providers involved? Anonymous 09/27/2017 (Wed) 02:39:51 [Preview] No. 11358 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
New surveillance campaigns utilizing FinFisher, infamous spyware known also as FinSpy and sold to governments and their agencies worldwide, are in the wild. Besides featuring technical improvements, some of these variants have been using a cunning, previously-unseen infection vector with strong indicators of major internet service provider (ISP) involvement.

FinFisher has extensive spying capabilities, such as live surveillance through webcams and microphones, keylogging, and exfiltration of files. What sets FinFisher apart from other surveillance tools, however, are the controversies around its deployments. FinFisher is marketed as a law enforcement tool and is believed to have been used also by oppressive regimes.

We discovered these latest FinFisher variants in seven countries; unfortunately, we cannot name them so as not to put anyone in danger.


tl;dr Finfisher is back, is more resilient than before, and is being deployed via ISP MITM in some countries via redirecting downloads of popular software like WhatsApp, Skype, Avast, WinRAR, VLC Player (list not exhaustive).

>FinFisher spyware masqueraded as an executable file named “Threema”. Such a file could be used to target privacy-concerned users, as the legitimate Threema application provides secure instant messaging with end-to-end encryption. Ironically, getting tricked into downloading and running the infected file would result in the privacy-seeking user being spied upon.
ha ha ha oh wow
Privacy concerned users don't use proprietary crap that cooperates with foreign oppressive regimes upon phone call.
ISP can't mitm you without bribing a legit certificate for most download sites. It only occurs in rare situations when CIA niggers do targeted attacks on users, because widespread attack would immediately result in banning this CA from all browsers on next update.
And if you happen to download exe files through plain http without verifying signatures obtained through reliable third party, well shit on yee.

>The 307 response from the Web server should always include an alternative URL to which redirection should occur. If it does, a Web browser will immediately retry the alternative URL. So you never actually see a 307 error in a Web browser, unless perhaps you have a corrupt redirection chain e.g. URL A redirects to URL B which in turn redirects back to URL A. If your client is not a Web browser, it should behave in the same way as a Web browser i.e. immediately retry the alternative URL.

So, if your user is retarded enough download executables through insecure channel and not from developer's repository, then he is not qualified to use computer anyways.

Unprecedented: World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Moves To Destroy Our Current Open Internet, Greenlights DRM for the Web Anonymous 09/26/2017 (Tue) 15:36:22 [Preview] No. 11320 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Unprecedented: World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Moves To Destroy Our Current Open Internet, Greenlights DRM for the Web


Early today, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards body publicly announced its intention to publish Encrypted Media Extensions (EME)—a DRM standard for web video—with no safeguards whatsoever for accessibility, security research or competition, despite an unprecedented internal controversy among its staff and members over this issue.

EME is a standardized way for web video platforms to control users' browsers, so that we can only watch the videos under rules they set. This kind of technology, commonly called Digital Rights Management (DRM), is backed up by laws like the United States DMCA Section 1201 (most other countries also have laws like this).

Under these laws, people who bypass DRM to do legal things (like investigate code defects that create dangerous security vulnerabilities) can face civil and criminal penalties. Practically speaking, bypassing DRM isn't hard (Google's version of DRM was broken for six years before anyone noticed), but that doesn't matter. Even low-quality DRM gets the copyright owner the extremely profitable right to stop their customers and competitors from using their products except in the ways that the rightsholder specifies.

EFF objects to DRM: it's a bad idea to make technology that treats the owner of a computer as an adversary to be controlled, and DRM wrecks the fairness of the copyright bargain by preventing you from exercising the rights the law gives you when you lawfully acquire a copyrighted work (like the rights to make fair uses like remix or repair, or to resell or lend your copy).

On March 12, the final vote for publishing EME closed, and members ranging from the German National Library to the UK Royal National Institute for Blind People to the cryptocurrency startup Ethereum, to Brave, a new entrant to the browser market -- along with dozens more—rejected the idea of publishing EME without some protections for these equities (the numbers in the vote are confidential by W3C's own membership requirements, but all the members mentioned here have given permission to have their votes revealed.)

It was the most controversial vote in W3C history. As weeks and then months stretched out without a decision, another W3C member, the Center for Democracy and Technology, proposed a very, very narrow version of the covenant, one that would only protect security researchers who revealed accidental or deliberate leaks of data marked as private and sensitive by EME. Netflix's representative dismissed the idea out of hand, and then the W3C's CEO effectively killed the proposal.

Anonymous 09/26/2017 (Tue) 15:36:49 [Preview] No. 11321 del
Today, the W3C announced that it would publish its DRM standard with no protections and no compromises at all, stating that W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee had concluded that the objections raised "had already been addressed" or that they were "overruled."

In its statement, the W3C said that publishing a DRM standard without protections for core open web activities was better than not doing so, because its DRM had better support for privacy, accessibility, and competition than a non-W3C version of DRM would have.

We disagree. Even by the W3C's own measures, EME represents no improvement upon a non-standards approach, and in some important ways, the W3C's DRM is worse than an ad-hoc, industry approach.

At root is the way that DRM interacts with the law. Take security: the W3C's specification says that users' computers should be protected from privacy-invading activities by DRM vendors, but without a covenant, it's impossible to check whether this is happening. Recall that Netflix, one of the principal advocates for DRM at W3C, categorically rejected the narrowest of covenants, one that would protect solely the activity of revealing DRM flaws that compromised user privacy.

On the question of accessibility, the W3C has simply ignored the substantial formal and informal objections raised by its members, including members with deep expertise in accessibility, such as Vision Australia, Media Access Australia, Benetech, and the RNIB. These organizations pointed out that having a place for assistive data was nice, but to make video accessible, it was necessary to use computers to generate that data.

At EFF, we've spent decades defending people engaged in legitimate activities that companies or governments disliked: researchers who go public with defects in products whose users are blithely unaware of them; new entrants to monopolized markets who offer better products with features the cozy old guard don't like; public spirited archivists and accessibility workers who want to preserve digital culture and make sure everyone gets to use it.

We're dismayed to see the W3C literally overrule the concerns of its public interest members, security experts, accessibility members and innovative startup members, putting the institution's thumb on the scales for the large incumbents that dominate the web, ensuring that dominance lasts forever.

This will break people, companies, and projects, and it will be technologists and their lawyers, including the EFF, who will be the ones who'll have to pick up the pieces. We've seen what happens when people and small startups face the wrath of giant corporations whose ire they've aroused. We've seen those people bankrupted, jailed, and personally destroyed.

Avast's antivirus was already malware. It will miss your actual virus email attachments but identify anything downloaded from a domain registered less than three months ago as a virus. Avast's logic is that if a domain is newly registered, then it must be distributing viruses. Avast does serve as an example of something that harms because it's worse than useless though.
