This is a great debate between DHH and Matt Mullenweg about open source, power, and whether it would be a good thing for WordPress to have 85% market share. rework.fm/open-source-and-powe

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

VeraCrypt 1.24 available:

veracrypt.fr/en/Release%20Note

– The maximum length of passwords is 128 bytes in UTF-8 encoding for non-system volumes now (previously limited to 64 bytes).
– Many new features are for Windows only, e.g. optional RAM encryption of keys/passwords (using ChaCha12), or erasing encryption keys from memory to prevent cold boot attacks.

It may be worth running Go64 on any Macs updating to macOS Catalina. 32-bit apps will no longer work and will have to be updated.

Simjacker – abusing the [email protected] Browser to track phones:

adaptivemobile.com/blog/simjac

– it requires the [email protected] Browser on the targeted phone, and a mobile operator allowing special SMS
– many details are missing
– mobile operators can remotely uninstall [email protected] Browser; so this perfectly shows that you can't "take back control" of your phone by just installing some LineageOS on it

If you haven't heard of KaiOS before, you probably think Firefox OS is entirely dead. But actually, as a fork of B2G, KaiOS has silently grown to a user base of more than 100 million people on devices from more than 10 manufacturers, making it the third most-popular mobile OS after Android and iOS now.

They just launched proper developer docs, as well as an app store:

* kaiostech.com/meet-the-devices
* developer.kaiostech.com/

Mastodon client for KaiOS, when? All JS/Web clients should work.

Wow…

So electron improved their security features with the recent version 5, but by doing this broke tons of applications because they either need User Namespaces or an SUID executeable (to launch proper isolated subprocesses).

#Signal Desktop noticed this problem and as well and "fixed" it in the worst way possible:

github.com/signalapp/Signal-De

On the other hand #Riot Desktop did a proper fix, which enables an SUID bit on this binary: github.com/vector-im/riot-web/
