Literally conducting genocide. And the WaPo Beijing bureau chief doesn't think that even merits a mention.

I completely agree and would love to see this for all development. Now if we'd only apply it to cryptography too.

If you block MS tracking in hosts, Defender will now specifically identify that as malicious, and re-enable the spying. Yes, the product once called "Microsoft AntiSpyware" is now pro-spyware. Do the MS engineers here ever take a hard look in the mirror?

How Apple uses anti-competitive practices to extort developers and support authoritarian regimes. Kudos to proton mail for speaking up protonmail.com/blog/blog/apple

OnionShare

onionshare.org/

"Securely and anonymously share files of any size. A web server is started, making OnionShare accessible as a Tor Onion Service, potentially temporarily or in a stealthy manner, over the Internet. An unguessable address is generated and is shared for the recipient to open in the Tor Browser to download the files. No separate server or third party file-sharing service required. You host the files on your own computer."

There's a GUI, but the CLI is so good, just `onionshare somestuff.bin` and you get a temporary onion service serving a static password protected website with the file made available. By default once the file has been downloaded, everything shuts down.

After buying TikTok , Microsoft immediately rebrands it to bring this exciting new market segment they have acquired in line with corporate identity guidelines.

Cert instructions nearly always include

openssl req -new -key my.key -out my.csr

openssl req -new -key my.key -out my.csr -subj /C=US/O=myco/CN=Me

"You shouldn't implement this security measure for your site's logins because it will only protect your site's logins and not other sites you have no control or influence over" is definitely the most head scratching hot take today.

Hm, bad news in terms of information sharing since a lot of nice articles have been written.

Hopefully people will consider moving on to their own writing platforms aka not Medium.

I don't know what they're doing to game the @googlenews algorithm, but Motley Fool is basically an endless series of pump and dump scams so this probably shouldn't happen. This section is supposedly not personalized, can anyone else confirm?

These two are fundamentally different questions and treating them as equivalent assumes away half the debate

"not in the hands of government experts" Like OPM, CIA, and NSA were? I swear this faith assumption is so unshakeable no contact with reality will change it. The organization DT runs is not more competent or better incentivized than you are.
