New tool album Comrade 08/30/2019 (Fri) 05:43:45 No. 149 [Reply] [Last]
New tool album is out.
Thoughts? Sounds good to me.
But, it feels like their swan song. They seem to agree. Anyone else listening?

In some respects it really sounds like they are pushing their boundaries in other it sounds very cookie cutter (not a bad thing for tool)

(41.78 KB 800x800 1553146055798.jpg)
It's boring as fuck. Sounds like the band had some riffs left over from 10K days and used some Kraftwerk techniques to stretch them into 10 minute long songs. Record company wanted a longer album so they stuck in some 3 minute "songs" consisting of random noises. Nothing in particular is outright bad, but it's just so painfully mediocre, especially coming form a band that was known for being cutting edge(y).
Yeah chocolate chip trip was pretty fucking disappointing. There will be faggots that will fawn over this album and unscrupulously praise it for years to come though,

Revolutionary tech work Comrade 08/25/2019 (Sun) 14:58:45 No. 573 [Reply] [Last]
I have knowledge for FreeBSD/Linux system administration and programming skills in C, C++ and Lisp. What's the best way to use these for revolutionary work?

I thought of making an application useful for punks, bums and people living an anarchist lifestyle but these people usually either can't afford or choose not to use this kind of technology. I thought of an application that could help anarchists organize but I'm thinking it could also be used against us, because it could help fascist groups identify and find us as much as it could help anarchists find and help each other. This is dangerous because it's as useful for fascist missions as it is for anti-fascist/anarchist ones. Otherwise, hosting something like an IRC platform and creating an application to ease its use could be nice but it's already being done by IRC channels, Facebook/Messenger groups and Discord groups, and it still excludes people who don't have access to this kind of technology. The goal in making a new application would thus be to help people help others, or to make the use of the application by indoctrinated people useful to anarchists without them having to use the application. I can't find any interesting idea fitting one of these descriptions.

Right now the only thing I can see is contributing to open source software that's already being used as backbones for other revolutionary software, like news sites, blogs, applications, etc. to contribute indirectly to these while having as big an impact as possible (contributing to a library used by many platforms helps more platforms than directly contributing to one). That would be low-level stuff like nginx, widely used libraries, an IRC daemon used by IRC networks hosting leftist channels, etc.

About the FSF, contributing to software of theirs that interest me like emacs would only be useful for other programmers, who, by that fact, should already have enough talent to take care of their own and thus should be helping others. This goes for many projects by GNU and the FSF, which are often aimed at corporations and corporate pawns to make them dependent on their software and leech for donations to the foundation. In other words, the software is made to help capitalists who have money to give to the FSF. Also, contributing to GNU projects would force me to voluntarily give the copyright of my contribution to the FSF, thus alienating me of my own work. Maintaining intellectual ownership over my contribution is important to me, because even though I'm using a free license, I want to be recognized for it. The fruit of my labour is mine, made for others, and the way the FSF does things goes against that. Contributing to FreeBSD, on the other hand, would give me this, even though it has the same issue of being aimed at capitalists who have money to give to the FreeBSD Foundation.

What does /tech/ do to help people with their tech skills?

I work with Backend for a lot of different Systems, if the project goes open source i would be happy to help with some backend coding.
>Some other considerations:
>- Could attract right wing terrorists and allow them to organize (not probable, but possible)
>- Bosses could infiltrate syndicates
You could have syndicates be on invitation basis (Where you write the moderator of the board why you want to join) as well as encouraging moderation of each syndicate (as you said something along the lines of reddit? that's your choice i guess)
Having a back-end you also have to take into consideration where you want to host it. I am setting a server up for personal use, if the application requires not too much load i could be swayed to help hosting it.
Good luck if you go forward with this idea Anon
there's now a thread dedicated to this idea, >>638
Write a malicious worm that targets the computer systems of banks and stock trading companies.
Create something to help people commit financial fraud. Fraud is a huge multi-billion dollar industry and many poor people actually depend on stuff like cards to get free food delivery and stuff. I used to do this kind of stuff everyday for over a year to fill my kitchen up with as much food as I could.

Privacy general Comrade 05/08/2016 (Sun) 16:12:51 No. 517 [Reply] [Last]
Comrades, we need a thread on privacy. Any decent activist should try ways of staying anonymous on the web and prevent being tracked by governments and corporations.

General tips

* Use free software as much as you can.

* Use GNU/Linux and keep it up-to-date, to be sure that you don't have unpatched security exploits

* Don't use Flash Player, use youtube-dl instead for watching streaming videos online

* Do not use Google, use DuckDuckGo or StartPage instead

* Use a password manager like Keepass or for GNU/Linux users keepassx. Create new passwords for every site that you visit and use a strong password as a master password. A tip for easy remembering of your master password is to use a sentence. "i fucking love cookies and tits!" with extra capital characters etc. is easier to remember than some random characters and long enough to prevent brute force attacks of any kind.

* Use the Tor Browser Bundle if you really want to stay anonymous.


* Go to Preferences -> History and set History to "Never remember history".

* See for additional tweaks: https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat and https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-security


* Use uBlock Origin for preventing tracking etc. Bonus: use hard-mode to manually whitelist external domains on sites. Don't use uBlock but be sure to use uBlock Origin https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Blocking-mode:-hard-mode

* HTTPS Everywhere

* DecentralEyes: prevents CDN hosting from tracking you (Google for Jquery etc.)

* Self Destructing Cookies: only allow cookies that you choose to allow


* Encrypt your hard drive or home partition at least

* If you use GNU/Linux, you can try to restrict systemd or syslog from logging.

* Use a distribution which takes security seriously. Also, be sure that you don't install a lot of things outside the repository. It will cover most of your needs.

Real life tips

* Pay with cash if you can

Feel free to provide tips to each other comrades!

You mean activities like posting on different topics on different sites under different pseudonyms and not presenting a full picture of your various interests all bundled in one place, but the point is that it isn't really up to you how much of you shows up online.

Here's the kind of story that happens every day: You are a member of a party. Of course, those members elected to important positions aren't anonymous, but there is no public database of all party members and you like it that way. At a small non-public meeting, a fellow party member takes a photo of you. You politely but firmly ask that person to not publish it. The person promises not to do that. A few minutes later the picture is online (but you don't know that immediately, you only get to know it with a delay, as it makes the rounds. The comrade is an old fart who lives off a pension. You still have most working years ahead of you. This information about you is now online forever. Any neonazi or potential employer can enter your name into a search engine and see that you are in a hard-left party.

There needs to be a cultural shift so that the people around you IRL don't fuck up your life.
It's true, we need a professional and disciplined attitude about security in our organizations. I think that's different from saying we can't have security if our family and co-workers aren't all disciplined.
This is what I get on https://searx.me after a few searches.

It's a shitty website. https://duckduckgo.com/ is superior to https://searx.me
>I get rate limit exceeded after a few searches on https://searx.me
Anyone can host a searx instance, even in your basement, the owners of the main instance put rate limiting to encourage you to host your own (which increases privacy, so long a small community uses it) and to avoid having to pay for it.
I prefer not having to go through the trouble of hosting my own search engine. I want user friendliness, which is exactly what DuckDuckGo gives me. On top of that, DuckDuckGo doesn't censor the results I receive.

Google has censored The Daily Stormer and 8chan, which is disgusting. I hate politically motivated search engines. Search engines should be just what they are: a program that searches the Internet for you for the content you requested.

Packet sniffing and interception via PAU06 Panda wireless Comrade 08/21/2019 (Wed) 00:32:36 No. 510 [Reply] [Last]
So I bought this pandawireless wifi card for packet sniffing.
i managed too get it running and in monitor mode on my computer, but, my machine keeps yelling at me about airmon-ng already being installed under "iw" which is what I used to put my dongle into monitor mode, but, I am not seeing any applications with iw loike airdump that allows me to monitor traffic in the area.

Can anyone help me actually make use of my wifi cards monitor mode?
1 post omitted.

[email protected]:~$ airmon-ng

Command 'airmon-ng' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install aircrack-ng

[email protected]~$ sudo apt install aircrack-ng
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package aircrack-ng is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Package 'aircrack-ng' has no installation candidate

That's what happens when I try and install airmon.

All I want to do is monitor my network traffic and see who is using my network and what they are doing and, if possible, rate limit people/ deny them service all together.
Lmfao, i'm stupid. My repository needed updating. That being said I still don't know what to do with monitor mode.

crude monitoring capability should be provided by even the most gimped router's http frontend provided by ISPs. if you are serious about regulating your own wireless network, you should get router that allows custom firmware/openwrt from get go. Right now I would suggest you to just go wardriving and find any useful throwaway AP. keep in mind most ISPs of the world use few digits of hexadecimal number as WPA key so bruteforcing them is feasible
Yeah but how exactly do I go about monitoring and analyzing my network traffic?
Switch the card to monitor mode and run airodump on it, you lazy faggot. There's a lab session on their aircrack website about capturing a 4 way WPA-PSK handshake. Try that.

Labor time anon here, I am practicing the Rust Actix + Diesel + Yew stack with another project right now, plus schoolwork. It will be a while before I post more progress.
rustanon, whats wrong with the rocket framework? seems more intuitive than actix
(270.29 KB plan_with_AIT.pdf)
Cockshott's plan, also detailed here in this (PDF), is a bit confusing in the sense that hes using a neural net for something non typical. Neural nets under capitalism are typically used for machine learning tasks like classification, regression etc. Wheras he is using it for a very atypical purpose (tractable solution to an LP problem).
As far as I can tell, Rocket and Actix-web have mostly the same layout for projects. Rocket just has a few more nice macros. On the other hand, Actix is much faster at the moment due to having async capability. Rocket says they're implementing the capability right now, but it's not there yet.

I don't know if I am the only person here who knows what lokinet is, but, basically lokinet is an encryption service provider that acts like tor; tor in the sense that it encrypts your packets with multi-layer encryption and bounces them around through a series of relays.

What makes it different is that it also acts like i2p in the sense that it also encrypts the encrypted packets in a secure SSL tunnel while bouncing them around making it truly anonymous.

It's also a decentralized network of relays and nodes of which anyone can spring one up and become a part of and on top of that you can use it as your default DNS provider meaning you can use this network as a vpn with out having to go through shady capitalistic datamines claiming to protect your data.

The down side is it's small right now and not a lot of people use it. It's fast though.

Furthermore, I can't seem to get the relays you need when you try to use lokinet as a VPN to work. I spoke with the staff on their IRC network and they told me the relays are down for those specifically.

I don't know if they ever got them up.

Does anyone else fuck around with lokinet on /tech/?

Here's their IRC:

No you CAN connect to the outernet which is why it's so amazing, because, it also uses secure tunneling on top of onion routing; all ontop of a decentralized network.

I just can't get the fucking thing to work as my fucking VPN so I can stop sending all my data to a random database.

It's good shit though, anon.
well let us know how it goes
it goes like ass. it wont play nice with my DNS for some fucking reason.
