Upgraded my #openwrt home router box (which intentionally only does VDSL + DHCP and not much more, to lower attack surface) to OpenWRT 18.06.2 today. More recent kernel and packages, various security fixes, etc. etc.
Went pretty smoothly, other than that I had to clear the browser cache to be able to log in again, and I had to re-install/re-enable luci-ssl.
Please reshare widely and **take action**. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.
Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.
Please help. This is important.

...this is the first work to use the Rowhammer effect in a positive context: to design a novel PUF
I never really worried much about performance (even before, when PHP and MySQL was involved; much less so now with just a bunch of HTML+CSS files).
I've been hosting my site at some random webhoster since basically forever, never really needed or cared about CDNs or virtual/root servers for just a blog (I use a #debian based root server for other stuff, though).
@politicalcustard Personally, I'm trying to keep the number of addons relatively small, also ideally it should only be popular, actively-maintained ones. Usually HTTPS Everywhere, NoScript, uBlock Origin. Sometimes uMatrix, haven't really decided yet whether I'll replace NoScript with this or not.
Also a bunch of about:config changes are in order to get some slightly more sane and more privacy-friendly settings.

Some popular iPhone apps are secretly recording your screen:
– apps include Air Canada, Hollister, Expedia, Hotels.com
– these and other apps use a "session replay" feature of Glassbox
– Glassbox session replays are essentially real-time videos of how you interact with the app
Turns out the current German federal data protection commissioner, @ulrichkelber, has an active Mastodon account!
It's really great to see that Mr. Kelber is active where much of the IT - and especially privacy - community are, instead of only on the big, privacy-violating social networks.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
