Parler is back online now by routing 100% of its user traffic through servers located within the Russian Federation.

Raise your hand if you understand the very significant impact this has on the ability to surveil and target insurrectionists who organize on Parler.

@ewenmcneill unfortunately it decided to discharge the lithium cell down below its minimum point after a couple of days and tripped the protection circuit

@aurynn would it be possible to look at the blocklist? I don’t doubt your judgement but it would be a nice “transparency” measure maybe? Mainly I’m just curious how much moderation actually needs doing

@ewenmcneill “Bugtraq has been a valuable institution within the Cyber Security community for almost 30 years. Many of our own people entered the industry by subscribing to it and learning from it. So, based on the feedback we’ve received both from the community-at-large and internally, we’ve decided to keep the Bugtraq list running.
We’ll be working in the coming weeks to ensure that it can remain a valuable asset to the community for years to come. - Accenture Security”

@ewenmcneill yeah they’ve decided to keep it going. And I agree, I haven’t actually looked at it in years. Still would’ve been sad to see it go, though.

For extra points here is the program. Can you tell where I made the error?

There is nothing more sci-fi than the way a classic HP calculator looks when it’s running a user entered program.

BugTraq is shutting down! Wait, BugTraq isn’t shutting down!

Yesterday was my 20th blogging anniversary. I admit it carried more emotional freight than I expected. 20 years is a long time to do anything, let alone something that's so personal and yet so public.

As it happens, an anonymous reader gave me a hell of a blogiversary gift: my first-ever FBI investigation! I've spoken to FBI agents before (Agent: Does your Tor exit node keep logs by any chance? Me: Nope. Agent: Dang), but I've never actually been *investigated*.
