~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

Thanks all for the messages. I've deleted a few accounts which should have been deleted years ago.

Will be looking to just take the bare necessities to get the job done. No need to take extra tech I suppose.

I am a noob and I can use Linux easily, solely because every issue I come across has been asked/resolved by someone else. My Vaio keyboard backlight didn't work, and after 5 minutes of reading Q&A posts I found the solution.

As of this afternoon I'm on a jump list for working in the USA at short notice over a number of stints.

Does anyone have any security or other advice for things I should prep beforehand or whilst I'm there?

It's been a while since I've been over there and have heard stories of people being required to unlock devices and hand over encryption keys etc.

So you were wondering how to put @Ubports #UbuntuTouch or @kdecommunity #PlasmaMobile on unsupported #Android devices? Fear not! Dalton and Marius walk you through the process of porting #Halium to the #Fairphone2: youtu.be/nShXVDXM50A

Can anyone recommend a good, google services free, 2fa application for android.

Preferably it will have a backup option but not needed.

Only FreeOTP+ & andOTP from this list have been updated recently:

Hey so I'm going to make this post now that Gargron won't reply to it with some horseshit

Has anyone added or started the process of adding the ability to see another instance's local timeline without leaving your own?

In particular I want to replace my local timeline with one that can target other instances, seeing as this one is single user,,

No longer happy, GPS isn't working.
Happiness will be restored when maps work 😣

Well, I managed to get setup. If I can get davx working for cal/contacts I'll be happy

If you're currently using #GoogleAnalytics, you are helping Google spy on your own site's visitors.

To protect your visitors' privacy, try switching to an independent free open source alternative like #Matomo:


The self-hosted version is FLOSS and (of course) free of charge, while the managed hosting version is a paid account.

It's GDPR compliant and by default respects "Do Not Track".
