  2. The repeal of net neutrality rules officially took effect on Monday, opening up the possibility that internet service providers could now throttle, block or otherwise tamper with consumers’ access to the internet. With the U.S. Congress failing to block the repeal, states have now been taking up the mantle to uphold net neutrality rules. Twenty-three state attorneys general filed a lawsuit in February attempting to block the repeal, while state lawmakers are taking action through both legislation and executive orders. “We know that when D.C. fails to act, Washington state has to do so,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said when the state passed legislation upholding net neutrality, according to the Associated Press. “We know how important this is.” “The states have a full right to protect their citizens,” Inslee added. The legislative push Twenty-nine states have introduced legislation to address net neutrality thus far, according to the National Regulatory Research Institute. An additional nine states have introduced resolutions that support net neutrality principles. While many states’ legislation is still pending, there have already been some successes. Washington became the first state to pass its own net neutrality requirements in March, with legislation that prohibits ISPs from blocking content, impairing traffic or engaging in paid prioritization. The second state to adopt legislation was Oregon, which passed a net neutrality law in April. Unlike the Washington legislation, however, the Oregon bill does not impose requirements on ISPs; rather, it blocks the state from doing business with providers who offer preferential treatment to certain web content and applications. The legislation will take effect in 2019.

  4. Microsoft has patched a vulnerability in the Cortana smart assistant that could have allowed an attacker with access to a locked computer to use the smart assistant and access data on the device, execute malicious code, or even change the PC's password to access the device in its entirety. The issue was discovered by Cedric Cochin, Cyber Security Architect and Senior Principle Engineer at McAfee. Cochin privately reported the problems he discovered to Microsoft in April. The vulnerability is CVE-2018-8140, which Microsoft classified as an elevation of privilege, and patched yesterday during the company's monthly Patch Tuesday security updates. Cochin says the issue was present because of different quirks in how Cortana allows users to interact with the underlying Windows 10 OS, while in a locked state. The researchers discovered several features that could be combined into one larger attack: Users can start typing after they say "Hey Cortana" and issue a voice command. This brings up a special search popup with various features and capabilities. Users can type text in this popup, which searches the laptop's application index and its filesystem. By typing certain words, like "pas" (as in password), this search can bring up files containing this string in their file paths or inside the file itself. Hovering the mouse over one of these search results can reveal the file's location on disk, or the content of the file itself (big issue if the disclosed detail is a password).
  5. Google today announced that Chrome will no longer support inline installation of extensions. New extensions lose inline installation starting today, existing extensions will lose the ability in three months, and in early December the inline install API will be removed from the browser with the release of Chrome 71. Disabling inline installation, which lets users install extensions directly from websites, will affect Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS users. Unlike Firefox, Chrome still does support extensions on mobile platforms. Google regularly cracks down on apps and extensions that cause a poor experience for Chrome users. In April, for example, the company outlined its ban for cryptocurrency mining extensions. But this change, which ensures the Chrome Web Store is the only way users of the browser can install extensions, is really an evolution of a shift that started three years ago. In May 2015, Google began blocking extensions not listed in the Chrome Web Store, and in September 2015, the company disabled inline installation of some Chrome extensions. Both moves were made in the interest of control and security: Google wanted to block extensions that didn’t adhere to its rules or that were tricking users into installing unwanted tools. Critics have pointed out such moves make the Chrome Web Store a walled garden, while Google insists pushing users to the store ultimately protects them. That thinking has only cemented itself further over the years. Here is Google’s stance now, as articulated by Extensions Platform product manager James Wagner: "We continue to receive large volumes of complaints from users about unwanted extensions causing their Chrome experience to change unexpectedly — and the majority of these complaints are attributed to confusing or deceptive uses of inline installation on websites. As we’ve attempted to address this problem over the past few years, we’ve learned that the information displayed alongside extensions in the Chrome Web Store plays a critical role in ensuring that users can make informed decisions about whether to install an extension. When installed through the Chrome Web Store, extensions are significantly less likely to be uninstalled or cause user complaints, compared to extensions installed through inline installation."

  6. The controversial repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections is officially set to take effect on Monday, despite ongoing efforts from members of Congress, state officials, tech companies and advocacy groups to save the rules. The Republican-led Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines in December to repeal the rules, which were intended to prevent internet providers from blocking, speeding up, or slowing down access to specific online services. The order required the approval of the Office of Management and Budget, which the FCC announced receiving last month. In a statement at the time, FCC chairman Ajit Pai framed the upcoming repeal as removing burdensome regulations. "Now, on June 11, these unnecessary and harmful internet regulations will be repealed and the bipartisan, light-touch approach that served the online world well for nearly 20 years will be restored," Pai said in a statement last month. An FCC spokesperson confirmed to CNN this week that the timetable is proceeding as previously announced. "June 11 is significant because it will be the first time in the over 15 year battle over net neutrality that the FCC will have essentially no role in preserving an open Internet and overseeing the broadband market," Gigi Sohn, a counselor to former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler and a staunch supporter of net neutrality, told CNNMoney. The concern among net neutrality advocates is that the repeal could give internet providers too much control over how online content is delivered. It may also make it harder for the next generation of online services to compete if they have to pay up to be placed in a so-called internet fast lane. "Those 'fast lanes' will put those who won't or cannot pay in the slow lane, making the internet look a lot like cable TV," Sohn says. But even those who oppose the repeal say very little is likely to change right away given pending litigation and possible legislation to settle the issue. "Nothing will change the next day," says Kevin Werbach, an associate professor of legal studies at Wharton and former FCC adviser. "Companies are not going to take any major action to change their policies until it's resolved."
  7. Microsoft, fully embracing a model it once saw as a threat, said on Monday that it was buying GitHub, an open software platform used by 28 million programmers, for $7.5 billion. The deal is a bid by Microsoft to gain ground in the internet era of software development, where applications increasingly run on remote data centers — on so-called cloud computing. Amazon is the leader in the cloud market so far, but Microsoft has transformed itself in recent years to become a strong No. 2 as a supplier of cloud computing services. Its vital Office productivity applications and database software are available in cloud versions. Microsoft also competes with Google, IBM, Salesforce and others in the cloud marketplace. All of them are trying to lure software engineers to use their cloud tools and services. The more programmers on a company’s platform, the more software applications are created, attracting customers and still more developers — a flywheel of growth and profit. “The strategic battle in the tech world is for developers,” said Frank Gens, chief analyst for IDC, a research firm. “For Microsoft, the GitHub deal is about strengthening and widening its relationships with developers.” Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s chief executive, said the deal would advance Microsoft’s ambitions in cloud computing and bring smarter software to every industry, on any digital device.

    glad you got it to work.. however if you are saving it as SEC®™>f50c1f06247234890016d83d0a5685e3=Owner and using my alias then it wouldn't work that way. f50c1f06247234890016d83d0a5685e3=Owner is how it would work.

    i will take a look at it but i wonder why you use an ini file to do this when mirc has built in levels. Looking over the file i see you are using $ial($nick,1) . You should not use this for any reason. IALs will change on ircwx networks. For example here is mine "err0r!1.1cd66d0.6492d38d732122c58b44e3fdc3e9e9f3@BuzzenPassport" The 1.1cd66d0. part will change per connection. The 6492d38d732122c58b44e3fdc3e9e9f3@BuzzenPassport part is what you want to use. I created an alias you can use instead. You can get the alias @ https://www.tg007.net/snippets/id-76 basically anywhere you are using $ial($nick,1) replace that with $gaddy($nick) Just make sure you are adding it to your ini file in the same format. ( though i would use levels instead of ini )
  10. Google just released Chrome 67 for desktop, as spotted by ZDNet. This version of Chrome will allow password-free sign-ins for most websites, meaning you can avoid hunting through a password manager for specific credentials. Password-free sign-ins come from the Web Authentication standard, which was launched in March by the FIDO Alliance and the W3C. It lets you sign in to any virtually any online service through unique credentials that you don’t have to memorize, such as fingerprint readers, USB keys like YubiKeys, etc. The standard is also meant to make it less likely a bad actor can obtain your most commonly used passwords by making it easier to give each service different login credentials. Mozilla’s Firefox was the first to get the standard, while plans for Chrome and Microsoft Edge to adopt the standard later were hinted at. Chrome 67 is also increasing its use of site isolation, keeping each browser tab separate so that a site can’t easily access data from other open tabs, which is a fix it initially rolled out to address Spectre-style attacks. Chrome will also be more compatible with VR through the Generic Sensor API, which is a standard used among fitness trackers and VR headsets, and it should pave the way for more integrations between desktop and gadgets to come.

  11. Americans are becoming increasingly frustrated with their internet service providers, new figures have confirmed. According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), just 62 percent of U.S. residents are satisfied with their ISP. It represents a two percent drop on the previous year’s survey. ACSI questions around 250,000 consumers each year and quizzes them on all things digital, including:     Internet service provider;     Video streaming service; and     Wireless telephone service. Every one of the 12 major ISPs in the U.S. saw a decrease in consumer satisfaction. The most significant was Mediacom, which fell by 9 percent between 2017 and 2018. In order of the most satisfied customers (with the score ranking out of 100), the list of ISP rankings: Fios (Verizon Communications). 70AT&T Internet. 68Optimum (Altice USA). 64All others. 63Suddenlink (Altice USA). 61Spectrum (Charter Communications). 60Xfinity (Comcast). 60Cox Communications. 59CenturyLink. 58Windstream. 56Frontier Communications. 54Mediacom. 53"Internet service providers are down 3.1 percent to 62 percent—an all-time low for the industry that along with subscription TV already had the poorest customer satisfaction among all industries tracked by the ACSI,” the report says.

  12. The EU’s data privacy law went into force on Friday and U.S. companies leapt into action—by turning off their websites. Sites like the Chicago Tribune or A&E Networks, for instance, decided to show the digital version of a “closed” sign to European visitors rather than risk violating the law. Other U.S. sites, however, chose to comply with the famous (or infamous) data directive known as the GDPR. But that doesn’t change the fact the Internet is smaller and different in Europe than it was last Thursday. This isn’t the first time chunks of the Internet vanished for the hundreds of millions of people who live in Europe. In recent years, a growing number of web pages are also dropping out of site due to “right to be forgotten” laws, which let people scrub Google search results about themselves. And it’s not only in Europe this is happening. The Supreme Court of Canada last year blessed a judge’s ruling in an intellectual property case that ordered Google to delete listings worldwide—meaning the content also disappeared for Internet users outside of Canada. Call it the Balkanization of the Internet. Just as the Ottoman Empire and Yugoslavia fractured into a series of smaller states, the same thing is happening to what we once dubbed the “world wide web.” Instead of a common cyber space, the online world is starting to mirror the political and commercial contours of the physical world. In the case of dictatorships, the divisions are especially stark. Think of the “Great Firewall of China” that blots out sites like the New York Times, or the religious tyrants in Iran who are trying to crush popular messaging apps like Telegram and hope to construct a “halal Internet.” These attempts to ring-fence the Internet have been going on for years. The striking thing of late, though, is how this trend is being embraced by democratic nations like France and Canada. This isn’t entirely a bad thing. The Internet we grew up with reflects certain distinctly American values—such as aggressive capitalism and a cavalier attitude to privacy—that many people find objectionable. Just as the people of Poland and Lithuania didn’t want to live under the Soviet empire, it’s no surprise Europeans don’t want to live under the thumb of Facebook and Google. A little Balkanization of the web, in the other words, can be a healthy exercise of democratic power and pluralism. The trouble is deciding where to stop. In the near future, will there be one Internet for Americans who live in blue states and another for those in red states? (Alas, this is already the case in many respects given how sites like Facebook and Twitter create so-called “filter bubbles” that serve up news and opinions we already agree with). More broadly, the latest fracturing of the web under the GDPR is a time to take stock of what we have lost. Read full article @ http://fortune.com/2018/05/26/gdpr-internet/
  13. The FBI has issued a dire warning to everyone who has a router in their home. The Internet Crime Complaint Center sent a rare Public Service Announcement declaring: "Foreign cyber actors have compromised hundreds of thousands of home and office routers and other networked devices worldwide." The hackers are using VPNFilter malware to target small office and home office routers, the FBI said. "VPNFilter is able to render small office and home office routers inoperable," the FBI warns. "The malware can potentially also collect information passing through the router. Detection and analysis of the malware’s network activity is complicated by its use of encryption." The feds recommends "any owner of small office and home office routers reboot the devices to temporarily disrupt the malware and aid the potential identification of infected devices." They also advise to consider disabling remote management settings on devices, use encryption, upgrade firmer and choose new and different passwords, which is pretty much best practice anyway. The IC3, formerly known as the Internet Fraud Complaint Center was renamed in October 2003 to include this kind of attack. Their stated mission "is to provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity and to develop effective alliances with law enforcement and industry partners." Today, that means telling you to reboot your router, so hop to it. Read full article @ https://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/security/a20918611/vpnfilter-malware-reboot-router/
