Hello, Fediverse! I'm Taggart. I'm a threat hunter by day. At night, I do infosec and programming education on Twitch. I'm a serious open source advocate dedicated to social justice. Glad to be here!

Folks who have to handle chain of custody for sensitive operations like , what sort of solutions are you using?

Sometimes you find a malware sample so wacky you just have to applaud the ingenuity.

Then nuke it from orbit.

Need some electronics help. I'm designing a sign that uses an array of 5mm leds. I'm not keen solder 200 leds to 200 resistors, I'm also not keen to re-learn PCB design. Very lazy. The LED layout is in a pdf.

What's the lowest friction option for bringing this into the world?

So! If you're trying to set up a packet capture interface in a Proxmox environment using openVSwitch as your networking layer, here's a catch:

Your PCAP NIC can NOT have the firewall option enabled in Proxmox. Doing so creates the tap interface as a Linux bridge, not an OVS port, meaning you won't be able to use that port as an output for the mirror.

Hey , does anyone here know of a beginning developer, in need, that could use a laptop gratis? I have a Starlabs Laptop IV that I don't use. Please boost for visibility.

Nobody should code. Computers were a mistake.

But if we're gonna, I want a whole lot more people who don't look like me doing it.

FOSS elitism 

I've seen some criticisms of proprietary software in Flathub/Snap/etc.

I get it- I prefer to use FOSS when possible, too. But if making popular tools available increases adoption, in my opinion, that only helps the community grow in the long run.

I can't tell you how many comments I've read saying "I'd use Linux if not for Adobe". If Adobe joined Flathub, it'd bring **some** folks in. They could discover FOSS alternatives after a bit. Linux would grow! That's good!

On today's , we continue with the IDS/IPS setup in our lab, getting Suricata/Zeek playing ball with Wazuh. Join the lab build live at 10 AM Pacific!

It's time for Friday wins and gratitudes! If you had a big success, or were grateful to someone/something this week, call it out!

Today at 5PM Pacific, our Discord is playing our monthly
game! This is a great way to learn the blue team ropes and enjoy a little infosec-flavored tabletop gaming. It's not streamed for privacy, but you're invited!

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.
