            Fortunately, there’s no conceivable way this can be used for data mining or any form of surveillance! /s

              Is this going to be “Windows RT (pt. 2)”?

              1. 2

                I get an “Error 526: The origin web server does not have a valid SSL certificate.”

                1. 2

                  Web server issue… shouldn’t have errors now

                1. 2

                  Is the page “Coming soon” what there is to see?

                  1. 1

                    fixed

                  1. 1

                    Wouldn’t this also be a security issue? If free calls aren’t encrypted can’t anyone get whatever data is being transferred?

                    1. 3

                      I scrolled through the replies a bit on Twitter and it seemed like they were talking spcifically about end-to-end encryption; so maybe free calls would still be encrypted between Zoom’s severs and the clients.

                    1. 1

                      imo, Google should’ve expected such a suit sooner or later with such practices

                      1. 2

                        Windows has a bug that leaks credentials? What’s new?

                        1. 2

                          so now I know more about javascript’s flaws - where’s the fault of per-user web directories at exactly?

                          Would this even be a problem on smaller/restricted (as in invite-only) servers where it’ll be a lot easier for the machine admins to watch for vulnerabilities and stuff in user web dirs?

                          1. 1

                            in the article, they claimed that even if all the users are trusted, they cannot be trusted/expected to check for new vulnerabilities in the things they put in their userdir, which would still have javascript making the whole thing insecure.

                            Good read. The fact the google home page needs 2mb for a search bar and a couple buttons tho

                            1. 2

                              Isn’t the title of this article “The reckless, infinite scope of web browsers”?

                              1. 2

                                That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.

                                All joking aside, this is a continuation of a discussion on Tilde.town IRC. I did a poor job of supporting my argument (SEE: title of this post) and I felt that the author of the article did a better job of defending my argument than I did myself. I hope that the folks I was discussing this with take a look at this article and see why I came to the conclusion I did.

                              1. 2

                                If you’re interested, I’d be ok ceding tildepi.tilde to you in the .tilde DNS system.

                                1. 1

                                  what about pi.tilde

                                  1. 2

                                    Or pilde.tilde

                                  2. 1

                                    Do you think it’d be possible to have pi.tilde? :)

                                    1. 1

                                      Sure. Hit up #.tilde on tilde.chat :)

                                  1. 1

                                    Maybe I missed it, but I don’t think Anton answer the question. Or if he did, he didn’t answer it well.

                                    Maybe that’s because the answer is, “It’s worth it if it’s worth it to you.”

                                    1. 1

                                      The answer is basically that DNSSEC is worth it if security is important.

                                    1. 1

                                      This really looks interseting.

                                      1. 1

                                        It looks like you changed the name of this project and now all your links are broken. I dug around to your github to find https://github.com/AntonMcClure/nix-py0x0. You may want to update your build zip, issue links, and so on.

                                        1. 1

                                          Fixed the link issues

                                        1. 1

                                          So, Oracle hosts a walk, and gets a tax break doing so, thereby lowering their tax bill.

                                          I mean, cool, I guess? They could also take some of the gobs of money they extract, and use that to actually just fund research?

                                          1. 1

                                            Did anyone say they aren’t doing anything to fund research? Are they not donating large amounts of money do foundations that do research on it?

                                            1. 1

                                              I don’t know. Are they performing research on it, or just doing stuff to cut their tax bills?

                                              I mean, the size of their annual profits says they could be doing a whole lot more.
