2020.09.26 14:59 Frosty_Preference_33 Home cybersecurity setup - advice

Hello Reddit!
I have created my account solely for this post. I have reasons to believe i am being targeted by a hacker (my ex, she works in cybersecurity....) - started receiving very professional phishing emails, AV started blocking port scans (before that i never detected one), my instagram account was hacked (received login message from another country). All this in a matter of 3-4 days. I immediately started to read a lot about cybersecurity and improved my home setup (PC) with the following measures:
  1. Installed the paid version of one of the top AV on the market with included firewall.
  2. Installed a reputable VPN provider.
  3. Updated all software and drivers. (mostly the drivers were out of date)
  4. Installed a privacy oriented web browser with maximum security settings.
  5. Changed name and password of router. I even changed IP of the router though i am not sure if it matters.
  6. Installed password manager and created different email aliases and very complex randomly generated password for every account i have. Turned on 2FA everywhere where it wasn't turned as well.
  7. Tweaked all the security/privacy settings on every account, app and PC.
I didn't know where to ask for help so i turned to Reddit. I would really appreciate advice from this community about the following:
  1. I know a lot of cybersecurity "tips" on the internet are for protecting against random hacking but what about targeted hacking from a pro - are the abovementioned measures enough/strong?
  2. Is there anything else i can do to protect myself? Something i missed? What would you've done in my place?
  3. I scanned my ports using an online scanner and i consistently receive port 1025 opened, which i don't know how to close or if i should close at all. Is this something of concern? Can i get hacked through that port?
  4. What is my weakest link in the system (excluding phishing ofc.) - my router, web browsing or something else? I have tweaked its security settings from what i have read on the internet. I don't really see what more i can do.
  5. I consider installing CCleaner but i am not sure if it will help for security?
English is not my native language so excuse my mistakes :)

2020.09.25 23:35 MusicDrafts Fantasy Music Drafts... An Explanation

I figured that I'd share something with this group that my friends and I started in late 2016...
We are all big sports fans, and naturally we like fantasy sports. Our group is also REALLY into music. Real junkies.
I, myself, always used to take my iTunes library and work to pare down "greatest hits" albums for each of my favorite artists. What would an album look like? Single/Double Album? How many songs should be included? What was the order? Catalog sequential or more topical?
One night, two of us were having a beer watching a game and we started arguing about Smashing Pumpkins songs and which ones were the best. And it got us thinking...
As everyone knows, the best part of the fantasy season is the draft. You get the chance to craft your team with the best players available. You feel like a real GM.
That's when I had the stupid idea to "draft" 10 songs each and see who's was better.
We shared the two lists and they voted on which was better, and slowly this morphed into us starting a FANTASY MUSIC DRAFT LEAGUE.
Yes, we are a bunch of junkies and losers.
But...
We also follow through with an idea.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's the basic logistics of how this works...
We have 5 guys in the league, and we started a group chat on our iPhones.
For season 1, I created a group of 10 bands to draft (subsequent "seasons" we would have a "band" pre-draft...)
We create a random draft order using a fantasy draft randomizer online, then we have a 10-round snake draft picking songs along the way.
We then have a short drop/add time to round out our 10 songs, then work to reorder those songs to make the 10-song playlist.
We create the playlist on Spotify and then share with the rest of the group. All of the picks and playlists are saved on shared Google Docs file to keep us organized.
Then, we each score the playlists with two criteria: "Draft Performance & Song Quality" and "Playlist Construction & Theme Quality". (By the way, this is the inherent flaw in our league, as music is incredibly subjective. We've refined the scoring system several times, still not sold on our methodology...)
The scores from the individual weeks add up over the course of the season and we declare a winner.
We are now in the middle of season 8. To date, we've done 87 official drafts, and probably another 10 side drafts. As you could imagine, our wives think this is the dumbest thing ever, but we persist...
Here are the bands that we have done thus far...
SEASON 1 Week 1 - Radiohead Week 2 - Incubus Week 3 - Coldplay Week 4 - Pearl Jam Week 5 - Pink Floyd Week 6 - Kings of Leon Week 7 - Red Hot Chili Peppers Week 8 - Led Zeppelin Week 9 - Smashing Pumpkins Week 10 - Beatles - Double Album

SEASON 6 Week 1 - Beach/Chill Summer Medley Week 2 - John Mayer Week 3 - 311 Week 4 - 1974 Week 5 - Bob Seger Week 6 - Nas Week 7 - Beach House Week 8 - Chon/Ronald Jenkees/Tauk Week 9 - Kendrick Lamar Week 10 - 2005 Week 11 - Genesis Medley Week 12 - Grateful Dead Week 13 - 2004 NOLA Jazz Festival - Double Album

I'd like to start sharing the results of the already completed drafts somewhere here in the community. Maybe post them week by week, with links to the Spotify lists, and let the group at large vote on the playlists.
Wanted to get feedback from this group to see how to best make that happen.
Thought you'd appreciate the music nerd-dom...

2020.09.25 23:02 NeedToBeSpoiled Back in the Game!

Woohoo! I took a few days to lick my wounds, eat some Phish Food ice cream(yummmmm), and yesterday I hit the POT jackpot!
I got three new POTs, one I saw today, one is tomorrow, and one is 'next week'. That one we were supposed to meet yesterday, but his kid threw up.
I'm excited!!
The POT I met today was super funny and sweet. He complimented me the moment he saw me, and when it was time to go I asked if he wanted a hug--he said I felt soooo good against him ;) Hehe.
He does live an hour and a half away from me, but I'm not opposed to the drive.
Tomorrow's POT is sexy as fuck and hilarious and a gentleman to boot. Plus he's ex-military 🤤 I've always had a thing for military men.
Next week's POT was a total surprise. He isn't listed in the search, which is an immediate plus for me because it means he knows what he's doing and he's a serious contender. He actually lives in my small town, which is a SHOCK. And he's wealthy 😳 Like whoa wealthy.
I actually also have a 4th, but we haven't been able to set a date yet because he's been going through hell at work, but he said he's desperate to meet me, lol. We've been texting for two weeks now, and he's a really amazing and supportive guy.
Sugar gods, please bless me!

2020.09.24 21:39 chuckEsIeaze Report: Gov. Dunleavy’s phony advertising campaign was used to collect Alaskans' info

Turns out the supposed "sign a petition for full PFD" campaign was nothing but a phishing scheme.
"The office of Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy spent thousands of dollars on an advertising campaign last year that urged Alaskans to sign petitions for a larger Permanent Fund dividend, to cap state spending and repeal criminal justice reform, but those petitions never existed, an ethics investigator has concluded.
Instead, the ad campaign was used to collect Alaskans' names and contact information for the governor’s office, wrote attorney John Tiemessen.
Tiemessen worked under contract for the State Personnel Board, which investigates ethics complaints against the executive branch. His report, dated Sept. 10, concluded an investigation that began in July 2019.
One ad said, “Lawmakers are once again trying to take your PFD. Sign Governor Dunleavy’s petition to support a full PFD.”
At the time, legislators were debating the size of the 2019 Permanent Fund dividend. Dunleavy had proposed a dividend of about $4,000; legislators set it at $1,606.
“On initial review, these ads appear to communicate the governor’s policy and allow individuals an opportunity to petition their government and offer their own opinions,” Tiemessen wrote. “However, the governor’s attorney’s correspondence with independent counsel indicates that these ‘petitions’ were only used to gather constituent information and were not used to directly petition the Legislature or to advocate for the subject policies in any manner.”
“It’s entirely possible that if the petitions had existed that would have been problematic,” he said by phone.
In that hypothetical case, the administration could have been using state money for “partisan political purposes,” something forbidden by law. As long as the state was only collecting personal information — and not sharing that information with anyone — those ads were legal, he concluded.
Tiemessen’s 22-page report was first reported Wednesday by Alaska Public Media, which obtained it through a public records request.
The governor’s office referred questions about the ads to Dunleavy attorney Brewster Jamieson, who said that all petitioners collect information.
“I don’t see how anyone is harmed or fooled or aggrieved by that process,” he said.
Jamieson said Alaskans were petitioning the governor, not lawmakers, and that each Facebook click was delivered to the administration.
“It’s submitted directly to the governor’s office,” he said.
Even though the governor’s office never presented the names of supporters to lawmakers in a traditional written petition, Jamieson speculated that the governor’s office could have cited the number of supporters when talking to individual legislators.
Other ads paid for by the governor’s office did send state residents' complaints to legislators. Those, labeled “contact your representative” ads by Tiemessen, provided a form that sent emails to several lawmakers when filled out.
A staffer for Rep. Zack Fields, D-Anchorage, sent a test message using the unique title “Full PFD MEOW.”
That email ended up in the inboxes of the House majority leader, the two co-chairs of the House Finance Committee, and two other Democratic lawmakers, all opponents of the governor’s PFD approach.
Neither the petition-related ads nor the contact-your-legislator ads were illegal, Tiemessen concluded, but other ads did violate state law, he said. Dunleavy agreed earlier this month to pay $2,800 to settle the ethics complaint that spawned Tiemessen’s investigation.
According to the report, a Seldovia woman filed the complaint in July 2019, citing Facebook ads being run by the governor’s office. The three-member Alaska Personnel Board appointed Tiemessen as independent counsel to investigate.
In addition to the Facebook ads soliciting petition signatures, the governor’s office commissioned online and mailed ads instructing voters to thank lawmakers who supported his position on state spending.
Rep. Josh Revak, R-Anchorage, and Rep. Sara Rasmussen, R-Anchorage, were among the beneficiaries of those ads, and Tiemessen concluded that because they had already signed letters of intent for the 2020 election, the ads at least partially had a partisan political purpose and violated state law. (Until the publication of Tiemessen’s report, the two lawmakers had been identified as Revak and Sen. Mia Costello, R-Anchorage.)
The governor and his attorney dispute Tiemessen’s conclusions, saying that the governor was unaware of the ads and therefore should not be liable.
Fields questioned the legality of the governor’s advertising campaign last year. One of the ads featured Senate President Cathy Giessel, R-Anchorage. How, Fields asked, could a governor be unaware of ads targeting a Senate president from his own party?
“The notion that a governor would be unaware of that is preposterous,” he said."

2020.09.23 03:53 DetlaS119MissesUGuys AWTAs for seeing Phishing links going around on XBOX Live, creating our own website to see how many people really fall for that BS. Then my friend getting greedy, and us making him think he'd be arrested for credit card fraud... of 4.99 U.S Dollars?

Obligatory moblie, and grammar apologies.
I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, and since it's been well past the statue of limitations on what this petty theft was. I feel it's appropriate to share here since I listen often and have fingers crossed this once upon a time buddy does too.
Cast, there is me (Delta), Juggalo, Willy, Flaming, Dilly Dilly's Mom
It's been years so this may not be totally the way it happened. Anyway, the year was 2009, my friend willy and I were probably ripping it up in halo 3 we had recently been merging or adding friends to the online group circle. Juggalo was was more recently added, also younger. Flaming was being introduced by people not in the story. Well one day, before Flaming joined, we had been talking about those BS phishing links getting sent around. Joking who could fall for that and all that jazz.
Well, I decided to make a website. It was one of those .weebly.com things, and it was how to get free microsoft points. Now being a freshman in highschool at the time I was impressed with how well I felt I did on the site. It was detailed. Many a fake testimonials with dates, ratings, with a modest 3.8 stars 32 reviews. I had a whole story, how we could do it, how we gave back, how we were given to. I had put real gamecodes, used, but real. So when people tried, already claimed.
Posted it up, sent to a few friends, and was like damnnnnn sonnnn check itttt!!!!
Flaming was one of these guys, well I thought it was funny and changed his info. He was suppose to send an email with his gamer tag/email/password for the account. I changed it, told the guys, made him get on a second account and made jokes about not giving it back for an hour or more. Willy was laughing his butt off and telling me not too. Juggalo was like nah he's dumb don't give it to man. Well he got it back in the end, he was a nice guy and I wasn't trying to be a dick. But like bro. You gave me the log in.
Now Juggalo, Willy, and Flaming are pumped to see how many people we can find that are this dumb. We sent it around a bit. I think one of them made a youtube video or something. Now I sent the email info to jugglo so he could check and see if anyone was sending the log in. Well Dilly, he sent one in. Juggalo hopped up in on this changed the info, and started using the account for shoots and giggles. He was using it one day and got a party intive, so he joined. Well guess who was on the mic. Dilly, we was 8 years old and crying, Juggalo said he left and was like peace.
He kept coming back and begging for his account and Juggalo said no. Well one day all of us friends are together and dilly invites him.
Juggalo: Dilly just invited me guys. What do I do?
Me: you should invite him
Willy: yeah dude, invite him
Juggalo: dude last time he cried and told me his mom would find me.
Me: no way that's ridiculous man
Willy: how could she find you?
Juggalo: you're right. Hold on
Dilly: hello?
Juggalo: this is my account now kid.
Dilly: give it back!
Juggalo: no. Hahaha haha
Willy: dude that's kind of mean..
Me: yeah maybe a little.
Dilly: I'm going to get my mom.
Juggalo: go ahead
Dillys mom: who the fuck do you think you are you little punk bitch?! I swear if you don't give my kid his account back right now I'm going to find you and kick your fucking ass you little snot nos...
Willy: did you just kick her?
Juggalo: (nervous laugh) yeah..
Me: dude you need to get off that account.
Juggalo: but how can I play this game I just bought?
Willy: on your account?
Juggalo: I bought it on Dillys account with the card on here.
Me: you did what?
Willy: dude you just committed identity theft. The fbi is coming for you bro. You just talked to her. She could find you. She could trace you.
Juggalo: what..
Disconnects.
Reconnects on his real account
Juggalo: she can't find me now right?
Ensue the relentless torment of telling him he will go to jail.
Juggalo. Miss you. Let's play xbox and wow again bb.

2020.09.22 01:57 Carrier555 96 and 2004 are the most underrated years (?)

Pretty sure this is fact but maybe not, especially if there's some gems with Holdsworth on guitar but idk.
My introductions to these years have been pretty impressive, I've stayed away from The C Word so all these years have given me is some of my favorite Phish of all time. I can't name dates but Lexington Kentucky, the Coral Sky show with I think Santanas percussionist and Clifford Ball (from 96) as well as Brooklyn and that one where they played on the building in NY (from 04) have stood out so far as being very high level Phish. Maybe you disagree but I feel like there's more treasures from these years than just those examples.
Please assist me in my search
Or tell me why those years are stupid and I'm wrong I want to hear both sides

2020.09.22 00:04 missinmee11 Anyone else had phishing scam attempts on them and shocked at the lack of interest from POF about this?

So i'm pretty new on the plentyoffish dating site. Like 4 or 5 days new. Within this time I've had 2 identical phishing scams attempted against me. These are not merely "the cast a wide net " mass message type of scam. This is an active one on one targeted attack type of scam. Which, in my book, takes the seriousness and the danger to a much higher level. I'm happy to provide the details, but that in itself is not the reason for my post, and I'm sure many are familiar anyway.
My big concern, and what I'm curious about is other users experience in these situations, and what sort of help or information or communication have you had with POF about an incident?
I've been very thorough and proactive in my due diligence in attempting to report and provide as much information as possible. Specifically, I've kept copies of the conversation between myself and the offenders. I've reported the users profile, twice each, and was very descriptive in the comments section offering to provide copies of the messages, links to the fake URLs that the offenders used. DNS site information for hosted fake pages. I've even filed a scam report with the website where the pages are hosted. I've even curled the server and retrieved the entire sites raw code and looked it over for clues which could be helpful.
So far, I haven't even received an automated response acknowledging my complaint, let alone a concerned individual member of the sites security staff making a personal inquiry. Which is what i would expect, and what should happen.
Consider your a valued paying customer at a local store, and while in the store someone attempted to rob you. Ok, so maybe it wasn't within the stores power to prevent the attempted robbery, but you would expect them to listen when you reported it. You would also expect them to listen when you came back the next day and pointed out the robber was there again probably attempting to rob someone else. This is basically what's happening, and if this is how POF handles these issues they are walking a fine line between complacency and outright conspiracy as for their level of neglegence.
Regardless, I've attempted to be as helpful as I could in my encotoures with these scammers. Probably more so than most. I'm just disappointed that POF staff has not even acknowledged that I've even reported a user, and an incident.
It almost seems as if POF is allowing this to go on. I understand how not everything is controllable, but the safety of its paying customers while using the site should be a top priority. Of course it's a constant fight, but good security is active and evolving, and if it was competent it would have made it a much more difficult environment for these criminals to operate.
I'm left wondering how many poor suckers have had their bank account drained, or maybe even worse. This scammer, was very smooth, and I can see how easy it would have been to fall into the trap, and most likely not even have realized it till it was too late.
So, I'd really like hear if anyone else has had any involvement or concern from POF after reporting any similar robbery or attempted robbery. Thanks for reading!

2020.09.21 11:18 emailout How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

Do you know how to prevent your emails from being spoofed, improve your email deliverability and ensure that people who signed up to your email lists continue to receive your marketing emails?

If you are using your domain name to send emails then email authentication is crucial to your email deliverability. It’s like the digital signature for your domain designed to protect your brand’s identity, content and reputation.

“If you spend more time on making your coffee than on securing your email communications, you’ll be hacked.” – EmailOut
Email authentication is an unnerving subject. More often than not, as an email marketer, you’ll come across an alphabet soup of different abbreviations and acronyms that will make your head spin. With the increasing number of spam and phishing emails, implementing email authentication has become essential. As daunting as the topic might be, the basic concepts are not as complex as one might think. Do you know which are the top email authentication methods that will help you ensure the security of your email marketing messages?

In this article, we’ll cover the following topics on email authentication:

  1. What is email authentication?
  2. How does it work?
  3. Email authentication methods
  4. How to set up your email authentication in EmailOut?
Ready to dive in?
The foundation of successful email marketing is for email campaigns to reach the subscribers’ inbox. You can devote hours upon hours on crafting the most highly-personalised, perfectly designed email campaign but… how will your subscribers see it if it ends up in the spam folder?
Most email providers (like Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook, etc.) are always on the lookout for ways to make sure the emails they deliver to the users’ inbox are relevant and secure. However, with the increased distribution of unsolicited and harmful phishing emails, email servers have placed numerous security protocols to help verify the authenticity of an email message, and it’s sender, before it reaches the intended recipient. If the email does not pass the required email authentication process, it’s highly likely your email campaign will experience deliverability issues like ending in the spam folder or not being delivered at all.
To prevent your marketing emails from going to spam, you need to follow four essential email deliverability best practice –
1) only email people who’ve asked you to; 2) ensure your content is relevant, well-designed, engaging and avoid spam words/phrases (for example, free, best, download now, etc.); 3) never send emails with hard-to-read or unexpected content; and 4) don’t bombard your subscribers with tons of email campaigns or send so infrequently that they forget about you.

Five factors can have an impact on your email deliverability (aside from not having email authentication) –

a) spam complaints – when a recipient marks your email as ‘spam’; b) bounces – when an email address is invalid or doesn’t even exist; c) spam traps – email addresses created for the sole purpose of catching fraudulent emails; d) IP address reputation – it measures the reputation of your IP address based on the quality and type of the emails you’re sending; and e) domain reputation – it measures the reputation of your email address based on the quality and type of emails you’re sending.
With these factors and best practice covered, you need to move your focus on how to improve your emails’ performance. Cue, implementing email authentication. But, before I give you details on the four main email authentication methods, let’s first find out what email authentication is and how it works.

The Nature Of Email Authentication

In technical terms, email authentication is a process that helps identify the sending source (for example, sending domain or IP) of an email so that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can route the email accordingly.
Simply put, email authentication is a process set to help you, the sender, prove you are who you say you are (not that [email protected] D0e from M1cr0s0ft urgently requesting users to update credit card details) and that the email you’re sending is not forged/spoofed. In other words, email authentication allows email marketing tools to send emails on your behalf AND as your domain.
Every email you send to a recipient gets processed by the recipient’s email client incoming server. It gets analysed and based on your email authentication method, it either passes or fails the authentication process. Once the email server has this information, it will determine if your email should be delivered to the recipient’s inbox (pass), flagged as spam (fail) or completely disregarded from the server (fail-filtered). If you have no email authentication in place, the chances of your email being considered as spam and rejected are very high which will subsequently lead to decreased email deliverability.

The Way Email Authentication Works

Email marketers can approach email authentication in several different ways. However, as much as the implementation of each approach comes with its specific technicalities, this is how the general email authentication process works –
1) the sender establishes a policy defining the rules by which emails from their domain name can be authenticated; 2) the sender configures its email servers to implement and publish the rules; 3) the email server receiving the email authenticates the message by verifying the details of the incoming email against the rules defined by the domain owner; and 4) the receiving email server takes action based on the results from the authentication process to either deliver, flag as spam or disregard the email.
When the receiving email server gets your message it looks for specific information in your email and the Domain Name System (DNS) records of your domain to determine the legitimacy and security of your message and whether it is safe for the recipient to receive, and, consequently, if the email came from an authorised source.
It is important to note that even if you’ve set up one or more email authentication methods but they failed the authentication process, your email can still end up being flagged as spam or rejected by the mail servers. Hence, rather than quickly setting up only one email authentication method, ensure you have multiple email authentication methods in place and regularly monitor the effect they have on your emails and your deliverability.

Email Authentication Methods

To set up an email authentication method, you have to create a few DNS records (or upload a file) to your domain hosting provider using the information rendered by your email marketing platform.
Beyond just looking at the sender’s email address, there are four email authentication methods (or standards) ISPs use that email marketers can take advantage of to ensure their emails will not end up in the spam folder or be rejected by the mail servers.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF)

Sender Policy Framework or SPF is an email authentication method whose purpose is to detect falsification of the sender address (return-path header) during the delivery of the email. It’s a DNS record that specifies which IP addresses and/or servers are allowed to send email communications from that particular domain.

When implementing SPF, always keep in mind that each domain can have a maximum of only one SPF record.
When an SPF record is checked, there are five possible results –
a) None – no SPF record exists; b) Neutral – an SPF record was found. Yet, neither a positive nor negative assertion was made about the sender; c) Pass – the sender is authorised to send email communications on behalf of the domain; d) Fail – the sender is not authorised and the mail server may disregard the email; e) Soft fail – the sender is not authorised but the mail server may not disregard the email only based on this.
The disadvantage of SPF email authentication is that this method alone cannot authenticate the original author of the email. Instead, it authenticates only the source of it (return-path). The best course of action to prevent email spoofing is to combine SPF with DMARC and DKIM.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

DomainKeys Identified Mail or DKIM is an email authentication method focused on detecting fake/fraudulent sender addresses in emails (email spoofing). Just like an SPF record, DKIM is a TXT record added to a domain’s DNS. It allows the email’s recipient to check if the email message has been indeed authorised by the owner of the domain.
https://preview.redd.it/q78uub8kxgo51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=479283ba7dbd17aded550d9027385c3ce056c992
This email authentication method is done by adding a digital signature linked to a specific domain name to each outgoing email and affixed to the email as a header. By checking the sender’s public key published in the DNS, the email can be verified.
Unlike SPF, DKIM uses an encryption algorithm to create a pair of electronic keys – public and private. The public key is placed in the DNS record, whilst the private key remains on the servers it was created on (i.e. your mail server).
To implement DKIM, you are required to update your DNS – just like with SPF. However, it’s a bit more involved than setting up SPF since you’ll need to –
1) choose a DKIM selector – it can be anything – word, number or a combination of both (see an example below, the selector is highlighted);
DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; d=example.net; s=brisbane; c=relaxed/simple; q=dns/txt; t=1117574938; x=1118006938; h=from:to:subject:date:keywords:keywords; bh=MTIzNDU2Nzg5MDEyMzQ1Njc4OTAxMjM0NTY3ODkwMTI=; b=dzdVyOfAKCdLXdJOc9G2q8LoXSlEniSbav+yuU4zGeeruD00lszZ VoG4ZHRNiYzR
2) generate both public and private keys; 3) publish your selector and public key; and 4) attach the token to each one of your outgoing emails.
This tool can be particularly useful for generating a DKIM public and private key.

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC)

Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance or DMARC is an email authentication method focused on handling the problem of email spoofing by protecting both the sender and the recipient. Your DMARC record instructs the receiving server not to accept an email if it fails DKIM and SPF checks.
https://preview.redd.it/tn7i8wklxgo51.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=d6fc7ad1471f5fde1d41289a9a35a44843e1e288
Is DMARC enough for email authentication? On its own – no. DMARC needs SPF to work.

Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI)

Brand Indicators for Message Identification or BIMI is an open standard allowing businesses to verify their identity and be easily recognised in recipients’ inboxes. Similar to SPF, DKIM and DMARC, BIMI is a text record which lives on your servers. It works alongside all the other three authentication methods to show email clients you are you. Some even call this email authentication method DMARC 2.0.
https://preview.redd.it/u031j8nmxgo51.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=5bb9709ebcdb3b6a627017af2ed746d9f45be92b
What differentiates BIMI from the other three methods is that it allows businesses to display their logo in supported inboxes.

Email Authentication Methods Review

1) SPF – to authenticate the sender’s identity this standard performs a check similar to verifying a return address. Simply put, the sender can define which IP addresses are allowed to send an email for a particular domain;
2) DKIM – this standard is also used to authenticate the sender’s identity, however, it looks beyond just the sender’s email address to ensure the content of the email is not altered by utilising an encryption key and digital signature which verify the email is authentic and not spoofed;
3) DMARC – think of this standard as a courier. It ensures emails meet SPF and DKIM requirements before they are even delivered; and
4) BIMI – this standard focuses on improving the sender’s credibility and legitimacy by displaying the sender’s logo in the inbox next to the email. If a brand has set up a BIMI record, once the receiving email servers receive the email it’ll run the usual DNS checks for the sender domain and if a BIMI record is found, it’ll ‘fetch it’ and show it.

Setting Up Email Authentication In EmailOut

By updating your Domain Name System (DNS) settings, you will benefit from DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) authentication.
Before you even begin with EmailOut’s DNS settings set up, make sure the email address you plan to send from is set up correctly. (N.B. EmailOut allows users to add as many ‘alternative email addresses’ as they’d like.)
Your next step is to access the dedicated DNS tool. There you will see three CNAME records that you’ll need to update your DNS settings –
https://preview.redd.it/3m92dy3oxgo51.png?width=618&format=png&auto=webp&s=67e00b56206bf4f9ae6d2acedcfd4faeaf967137
With these CNAME records at hand, head to your hosting service provider and search for a feature called ‘Manage DNS’ (or something similar), select your domain, then ‘Add New’ record and set the ‘Type’ to CNAME and ‘TTL’ to default. Afterwards, enter one record at a time like the example below:
https://preview.redd.it/kan5ewcpxgo51.png?width=597&format=png&auto=webp&s=b93266db80dbe930e2a10cc4b0bb8c1265f1da3d
If the DNS set up is successful, EmailOut’s DNS tool will have three green status ticks –
https://preview.redd.it/esd9bjaqxgo51.png?width=956&format=png&auto=webp&s=65aad69ba31c78ba49170c69ffbe7a4bba81c799
How long will the DNS set up take? The TTL (Time-To-Live) determines the time the records will take to propagate. This will vary for each domain hosting provider and may display as ‘1 Hour’ or ‘3600 seconds’ for example. Most providers will tell you it can take up to 48 hours but it’s usually a lot faster than this. The average time is 2 hours.

Final Thoughts

Email authentication is like a digital ID. It protects your brand’s integrity, identity and reputation. Implementing the proper email authentications methods like SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI, will help you improve your email deliverability, email engagement and also, reassure your subscribers that you are who you say you are. Thus, creating a trusting relationship between you and the recipient.
To ensure everything with your email authentication is going smoothly, I recommend keeping an eye on email security metrics such as bounce and deliverability rates. If you notice a spike in bounces and a decrease in email deliverability, there might be something wrong with your email authentication. Ah, and remember, it’s always better to have more than one email authentication method in place.

How To: Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC and BIMI

Do you know how to prevent your emails from being spoofed, improve your email deliverability and ensure that people who signed up to your email lists continue to receive your marketing emails?

If you are using your domain name to send emails then email authentication is crucial to your email deliverability. It’s like the digital signature for your domain designed to protect your brand’s identity, content and reputation.

“If you spend more time on making your coffee than on securing your email communications, you’ll be hacked.” – EmailOut
Email authentication is an unnerving subject. More often than not, as an email marketer, you’ll come across an alphabet soup of different abbreviations and acronyms that will make your head spin. With the increasing number of spam and phishing emails, implementing email authentication has become essential. As daunting as the topic might be, the basic concepts are not as complex as one might think. Do you know which are the top email authentication methods that will help you ensure the security of your email marketing messages?

In this article, we’ll cover the following topics on email authentication:

  1. What is email authentication?
  2. How does it work?
  3. Email authentication methods
  4. How to set up your email authentication in EmailOut?
Ready to dive in?
The foundation of successful email marketing is for email campaigns to reach the subscribers’ inbox. You can devote hours upon hours on crafting the most highly-personalised, perfectly designed email campaign but… how will your subscribers see it if it ends up in the spam folder?
Most email providers (like Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook, etc.) are always on the lookout for ways to make sure the emails they deliver to the users’ inbox are relevant and secure. However, with the increased distribution of unsolicited and harmful phishing emails, email servers have placed numerous security protocols to help verify the authenticity of an email message, and it’s sender, before it reaches the intended recipient. If the email does not pass the required email authentication process, it’s highly likely your email campaign will experience deliverability issues like ending in the spam folder or not being delivered at all.
To prevent your marketing emails from going to spam, you need to follow four essential email deliverability best practice –
1) only email people who’ve asked you to; 2) ensure your content is relevant, well-designed, engaging and avoid spam words/phrases (for example, free, best, download now, etc.); 3) never send emails with hard-to-read or unexpected content; and 4) don’t bombard your subscribers with tons of email campaigns or send so infrequently that they forget about you.

Five factors can have an impact on your email deliverability (aside from not having email authentication) –

a) spam complaints – when a recipient marks your email as ‘spam’; b) bounces – when an email address is invalid or doesn’t even exist; c) spam traps – email addresses created for the sole purpose of catching fraudulent emails; d) IP address reputation – it measures the reputation of your IP address based on the quality and type of the emails you’re sending; and e) domain reputation – it measures the reputation of your email address based on the quality and type of emails you’re sending.
With these factors and best practice covered, you need to move your focus on how to improve your emails’ performance. Cue, implementing email authentication. But, before I give you details on the four main email authentication methods, let’s first find out what email authentication is and how it works.

The Nature Of Email Authentication

In technical terms, email authentication is a process that helps identify the sending source (for example, sending domain or IP) of an email so that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can route the email accordingly.
Simply put, email authentication is a process set to help you, the sender, prove you are who you say you are (not that [email protected] D0e from M1cr0s0ft urgently requesting users to update credit card details) and that the email you’re sending is not forged/spoofed. In other words, email authentication allows email marketing tools to send emails on your behalf AND as your domain.
Every email you send to a recipient gets processed by the recipient’s email client incoming server. It gets analysed and based on your email authentication method, it either passes or fails the authentication process. Once the email server has this information, it will determine if your email should be delivered to the recipient’s inbox (pass), flagged as spam (fail) or completely disregarded from the server (fail-filtered). If you have no email authentication in place, the chances of your email being considered as spam and rejected are very high which will subsequently lead to decreased email deliverability.

The Way Email Authentication Works

Email marketers can approach email authentication in several different ways. However, as much as the implementation of each approach comes with its specific technicalities, this is how the general email authentication process works –
1) the sender establishes a policy defining the rules by which emails from their domain name can be authenticated; 2) the sender configures its email servers to implement and publish the rules; 3) the email server receiving the email authenticates the message by verifying the details of the incoming email against the rules defined by the domain owner; and 4) the receiving email server takes action based on the results from the authentication process to either deliver, flag as spam or disregard the email.
When the receiving email server gets your message it looks for specific information in your email and the Domain Name System (DNS) records of your domain to determine the legitimacy and security of your message and whether it is safe for the recipient to receive, and, consequently, if the email came from an authorised source.
It is important to note that even if you’ve set up one or more email authentication methods but they failed the authentication process, your email can still end up being flagged as spam or rejected by the mail servers. Hence, rather than quickly setting up only one email authentication method, ensure you have multiple email authentication methods in place and regularly monitor the effect they have on your emails and your deliverability.

Email Authentication Methods

To set up an email authentication method, you have to create a few DNS records (or upload a file) to your domain hosting provider using the information rendered by your email marketing platform.
Beyond just looking at the sender’s email address, there are four email authentication methods (or standards) ISPs use that email marketers can take advantage of to ensure their emails will not end up in the spam folder or be rejected by the mail servers.

2020.09.19 20:26 xeffyr [README] Frequently Asked Questions

A list of Frequently Asked Questions. As Reddit doesn't like very long posts, this one will cover only basics useful for Termux newcomers. Full version can be found in https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/FAQ.
If you have something that you think is important for adding to FAQ, please send a direct message to me.

What is Termux?

Termux is a terminal emulator for Android OS with own package ecosystem. For now we have more than 1000 packages which allows to create a Linux-like environment and perform a wide range of tasks.
Please note that Termux is neither a virtual machine or operating system. Packages are compiled with Android NDK toolchain and are executed natively.

What can I do with Termux? What do you use Termux for?

You can do anything. Termux is a general purpose tool and does not push any specific limit on user. Limits come from the operating system (e.g. no root permissions) and lack of user skills.
Here are just a few things for which Termux can be used: * Device automation with scripting and Termux Tasker plug-in. * Programming. * SSH client. * File transfer & synchronization.

Are there any Termux tutorials? Where I can learn about Termux?

As Termux use-cases are determined by user, we do not provide step-by-step tutorials on our own. Maintaining up-to-date information about usage of even 30% of the available package is impossible task for us.
Application-specific information can be found on Termux Wiki - https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Main_Page. For beginners it may be worth to start with this page: https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Getting_started.

Will Termux work on Android 10 or newer?

It will work on most Android 10/11 devices.
As application is not being compiled with target Android SDK level 29, it is not subject for execve() system call restrictions described in issue https://github.com/termux/termux-app/issues/1072.
The target SDK level eventually will be changed in future, at least for being able to publish application updates to Google Play. When this happen, new Termux version (will have version number 1.x) will use a different solution for package management and support for apt/dpkg will be dropped. Older versions (v0.x) which use apt as package manager will continue to be functional.
All relevant information on this topic is available in https://github.com/termux/termux-packages/wiki/Termux-and-Android-10.

Can I root my device with Termux?

In general, yes rooting device from Termux is possible. But there no and never be a straightforward way to perform rooting successfully.
If device can be rooted easily by unprivileged application, then it has poor security. But as no one is interested in data leaks or device damage due to security holes, Android is being hardened more and more with each release making rooting possibility from the application nearly impossible.
Remember: we do not help you with rooting in any way and our community is not place for seeking help regarding such activity.

What are advantages of root in Termux?

Once you get root (superuser) privileges, you will be able to read/write files in any location including system. Also you will be able to manipulate state of the operating system (e.g. networking or mounted file systems) and hardware.
If you do not know which benefits you can get by acquiring these capabilities, then root is not needed for you.
Note that utilities working only with root are moved to the separate repository. In order to use it, execute command pkg install root-repo.
To use root shell, it is recommended to execute command tsu instead of su. This will properly setup environment variables, so shell will be able to pick Termux utilities.

Is there any Termux build for Android KitKat (4.4.x)?

No, it was never available for 4.x and never be. We even have dropped the support of Android 6 since 2020.01.01. We do not have enough people for maintaining different sets of packages and do not want to keep our devices on outdated Android versions.
Packages compiled for Android 7 are not working on Android 5.x - 6.x.

Can I hack Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Telegram, Mail, etc with Termux?

In theory, everything is possible as systems are not absolutely secure and human factor always take a place. The one thinking he can do it, does it or at least tries. But if you ask "can you", the answer is: no, you can't.
Asking for help with hacking, phishing, DoS, spamming, related activity and tools usage, is not allowed here. All such posts on this subreddit will be removed and their posters will get a ban. No matter whether you are asking for educational purposes or not. And we do not care which color of hat you have (red/white/grey/black).
Why we do not like questions on this topic? - We do not like them because received lots of them from people who have big trouble with understanding Computer Science basics. Keeping discussion with these people (script kiddies) is waste of time as they just do not understand your answers.
A little note on terminology: * Phishing - kind of fraud for obtaining usernames and passwords. This is not hacking, just pure crime. Phishing skills do not give you any value in IT security world. * DoS/DDoS - attack causing denial of service. Can be done from single device (DoS) or from device network (botnet) - DDoS. It is not possible to DoS a website with packet flooding from single Android device because you will need lots of bandwidth (1.5 - 500 Gbps). DoS through exploiting vulnerabilities still possible.
Also see https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Hacking.

How can I access device storage with Termux?

You need to grant a Storage access permission to application. We recommend to do that through command termux-setup-storage. It will ask for permission and once it was granted, it will setup a symlinks in directory ~/storage to standard directories like DCIM, Download, etc.
Storage (shared) is usually accessible through: * /storage/emulated/0 * /storage/self/primary * $HOME/storage/shared
External storage is restricted by Android OS. You can read files but cannot write them, except ones located in Termux private directory accessible through $HOME/storage/external-1. Termux cannot have write access to external storage like file manager applications do.
See https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Internal_and_external_storage for more information about symlinks and storage use in Termux.
On Android 11, you may observe issues with accessing shared (internal) and external storage. This issue cannot be solved. Proposed solution with using MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission didn't worked.

How to open failsafe shell?

There are 2 variants how to do that: 1. Open drawer by swiping rightwards -> long tap on "new session" -> tap "failsafe". 2. Close Termux app -> long tap on icon -> tap "failsafe".
See https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Recover_a_broken_environment for more information on Termux recovery topic.

I use outlook (website not the app version) and I wanna block all these spam and phishing emails like the fake ones from netflix by blocking specific names etc, but even with rules THEY still come in my mail. It's been always been like this dating for like a year now. How do I actually block phishing and spam mail by name properly with outlook? This is ridiculous. I would've switched over to g-mail if wasn't such a hassle to get all my stuff over there.

McAfee refreshes its infection definitions in any event once per day. It can refresh its product like clockwork if a genuine danger rises.
Like all sellers, McAfee will alarm you before your month to month or yearly permit lapses with sufficient opportunity to reestablish.

2020.09.18 22:48 Jacobus1205 Returned to OSRS and can't access account?

Hope this falls under the rules and am hoping to gain some attention from a mod or insight from others who have faced the same situation. I took a break from OSRS when I got busy with work over the last several months. The last time I played was with the release of Darkmeyer and SOTF to keep the quest cape I got early this year. I've been playing on the same account on and off since the early 2000s and rebuilt the account after EOC and the release of Old School. I tried to log back in earlier this week and get back to it to find that the password I had was invalid and that my recovery email had been changed. I had 2FA on the account and am baffled that I no longer have access. Checked my email for any password reset requests and found one from 6/12/2020 - my understanding was there was a data leak somewhere around this time and that many phishing emails went out. I did not change the password or click the email or any links from that email.
Over the last several days, I have appealed multiple times - all have been denied. I've entered credit card info, passwords, ISPs and locations I've played over the last 5+ years of moving around, and as much info as I can provide. The security questions have all been changed. After reading the appeals rules it seems that without a creation date, it automatically gets denied? I can't pinpoint a month or year I would have created it as I had made several well over a decade ago. I have pictures of achievements on the account, bank, the PIN, I can even describe the 1 mute that was on the account from early on in playing and being a dumb child.
If anyone can provide some insight or help, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for reading.

If you are wondering how they do it they are two techniques
The first technique is used to phish dead base it's simple they easily report to the support team that they has lost their account and they want it back and supercell asks questions about the account(I will tell you what kind of questions are below)
The second technique is used against active people and it's done by the phisher reporting losing his phone with its account to the support team and if he answers the question right he will steal your account I will explain everything below.....
Questions supercell asks👇
  1. Name
2.Th level
  1. Xp level
  2. Player tag
This questions are to identify the account they are not the main concern here But the main determining questions are listed below from 1-6 You should avoid sharing them.

2020.09.17 02:27 Chocokat1 What to do about suspicious car accident claim?

Hi. Sorry not sure which flair is most suitable. I live in England.
The police force from another area to where I live, randomly sent me a letter wanting information about who was driving my car as they believe it was involved in a car accident on a certain date, time and place - but neither me nor my car where ever there!! Now I discover that my car insurer has also contacted me (via email) about this, saying that someone claims to have been involved in a car accident and they say its my fault! Even sent me a claims form. I had spent a couple days trying to verify the authenticity of the police letter and the officer in question, as it was totally out of the blue and a shock to the system. Was worried it was a new phishing scam. My work can verify where I was, and I had someone with me the entire day.
Can anyone advise me please? I'm really stressed out about this.
Edit: missed this out as typed this post late last night. The cover letter is dated 16.08.2020, yet the officer didn't date and sign it off until the 07.09.2020.

2020.09.16 06:55 HeavyArmsJin Private data gone public: Razer leaks 100,000+ gamers’ personal info

Private data gone public: Razer leaks 100,000+ gamers’ personal info
https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2020/09/100000-razer-users-data-leaked-due-to-misconfigured-elasticsearch/
COPY AND PASTED (Full Article in link):
In August, security researcher Volodymyr Diachenko discovered a misconfigured Elasticsearch cluster, owned by gaming hardware vendor Razer, exposing customers' PII (Personal Identifiable Information).
The cluster contained records of customer orders and included information such as item purchased, customer email, customer (physical) address, phone number, and so forth—basically, everything you'd expect to see from a credit card transaction, although not the credit card numbers themselves. The Elasticseach cluster was not only exposed to the public, it was indexed by public search engines.
Diachenko reported the misconfigured cluster—which contained roughly 100,000 users' data—to Razer immediately, but the report bounced from support rep to support rep for over three weeks before being fixed.

This redacted sample record from the leaked Elasticsearch data shows someone's June 24 purchase of a $2,600 gaming laptop.
Razer offered the following public statement concerning the leak:
We were made aware by Mr. Volodymyr of a server misconfiguration that potentially exposed order details, customer and shipping information. No other sensitive data such as credit card numbers or passwords was exposed.
The server misconfiguration has been fixed on 9 Sept, prior to the lapse being made public.
We would like to thank you, sincerely apologize for the lapse and have taken all necessary steps to fix the issue as well as conduct a thorough review of our IT security and systems. We remain committed to ensure the digital safety and security of all our customers.

Why leaks like this matter:
It's easy to respond dismissively to data leaks like this. The information exposed by Razer's misconfigured Elastisearch cluster is private—but unlike similar data exposed in the Ashley Madison breach five years ago, the purchases involved are probably not going to end anyone's marriage. There are no passwords in the transaction data leaked, either.
But leaks like this do matter. Attackers can and do use data like that leaked here to heighten the effectiveness of phishing scams. Armed with accurate details of customers' recent orders and physical and email addresses, attackers have a good shot at impersonating Razer employees and social engineering those customers into giving up passwords and/or credit card details.
In addition to the usual email phishing scenario—a message that looks like official communication from Razer, along with a link to a fake login page—attackers might cherry-pick the leaked database for high-value transactions and call those customers by phone. "Hello, $your_name, I'm calling from Razer. You ordered a Razer Blade 15 Base Edition at $2,599.99 on $order_date..." is an effective lead-in to fraudulently getting the customer's actual credit card number on the same call.

2020.09.14 14:27 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: GOP source has been a Russian agent for a decade

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

GOP source is Russian agent

The Treasury Department announced new sanctions against Andriy Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker, accusing him of being an "active Russian agent" who is part of Moscow's interference in the 2020 campaign. Derkach has been actively promoting discredited anti-Biden materials for many months, including meeting with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to hand over disinformation (picture).
Between May and July 2020, Derkach released edited audio tapes and other unsupported information with the intent to discredit U.S. officials, and he levied unsubstantiated allegations against U.S. and international political figures
These tapes were laundered through Giuliani to OANN, the Senate Homeland Security Committee (via Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson), Don Jr., and the president himself.
Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) called out Sen. Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley (Chair of Senate Finance Cmte.) for collaborating with Derkach:
Derkach has been central in advancing the Russian disinformation that underpins Senate Republicans’ effort to smear Vice President Biden. For example, in April, the Republican chairmen of the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and Finance Committees requested information about purported calls between Vice President Biden and Ukrainian officials. Then in May edited excerpts of those same calls involving Biden were leaked by Derkach and Andrii Telizhenko, the Senate Republicans’ star witness.
...Senate investigations should not parrot conspiracy theories pushed by Russian agents under U.S. sanctions, and Senate Republicans should immediately abandon this blatantly political effort.

DHS Whistleblower

Last week, the House Intelligence Committee released a whistleblower complaint made by former acting Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy. Chairman Adam Schiff released a statement saying the complaint “outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically.”

On Russia

Page 10: Mr. Murphy made several protected disclosures between March 2018 and August 2020 regarding a repeated pattern of abuse of authority, attempted censorship of intelligence analysis and improper administration of an intelligence program related to Russian efforts to influence and undermine United States interests. The relevant officials at issue were Secretary Nielsen and Messrs. Wolf, Cuccinelli, Taylor, and Acting Deputy Director for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Kash Patel (“Mr. Patel”).
In May 2020, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told Murphy to “cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the United States, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Wolf told Murphy those instructions came directly from White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien, according to Murphy, who said he refused to comply because “doing so would put the country in substantial and specific danger.”
In July 2020, DHS chief of staff John Gountanis intervened to stop publication of an intelligence bulletin warning about a Russian disinformation plot to “denigrate” the mental health of Joe Biden. On July 8, Murphy said, he met with Wolf, who told him that the intelligence notification should be “held” because it “made the President look bad.” After Murphy protested, Wolf excluded him from meetings about the notification, a draft of which was ultimately produced that Murphy felt minimized the actions of Russia.
The complaint details dozens of instances in which Murphy told his superiors about the abuses of power and political interference. The complaints either went nowhere or resulted in perceived retaliatory actions against Murphy. Many of these complaints were given to Kash Patel, former staffer to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who played a key role in a Republican effort to discredit Mueller’s and the FBI’s Russia probes.
  • Related: NSC’s top legislative affairs official, Virginia Boney, was removed and sent to the Commerce Department earlier this year because she kept pressing the White House to prioritize election security efforts — and specifically the threat posed by Russia. To date, there have been no traditional NSC Principals Committee meetings — with senior Cabinet officials and the president — on the subject of Russian interference this year.

On white supremacy

Page 14: During multiple meetings between the end of May 2020 and July 31, 2020, Mr. Murphy made protected disclosures to Messrs. Wolf and Cuccinelli regarding abuse of authority and improper administration of an intelligence program with respect to intelligence information on ANTIFA and “anarchist” groups operating throughout the United States.
Murphy alleges that Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli ordered him to modify intelligence assessments to make the threat of white supremacy “appear less severe” and include information on violent “left-wing” groups and Antifa. The reason given was “to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups.”
After Murphy refused to change a draft report warning of the threat posed by White supremacists, Wolf and Cuccinelli reportedly stopped the report from being finished.

On immigration and asylum

In Dec. 2019, Cuccinelli expressed frustration with intelligence reports detailing conditions in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and accused "deep-state intelligence analysts" of compiling the information to undermine Trump's objectives regarding asylum.
Page 9: The intelligence reports were designed to help asylum officers render better determinations regarding their legal standards… Mr. Murphy defended the work in the reports, but Mr. Cuccinelli stated he wanted changes to the information outlining high levels of corruption, violence, and poor economic conditions in the three respective countries...
Mr. Cuccinelli ordered Messrs. Murphy and [former I&A Under Secretary David] Glawe to identify the names of the “deep state” individuals who compiled the intelligence reports and to either fire or reassign them immediately.
Murphy also alleges that DHS gave false information to Congress last year about the numbers of suspected terrorists crossing the southern border. At the time, administration officials were repeating a 4,000 figure in an effort to justify the government shutdown over Trump's border wall. The true number was actually six. A DHS spokeswoman pressured NBC to take down a story exposing the lie last year.

Response

Chairman Schiff has subpoenaed Murphy to testify before the Intelligence Cmte. on September 21. The Cmte. also seeks to interview high-level DHS officials including Matthew Hanna, chief of staff in Murphy's former post at DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis; the office's top official, Horace Jen; DHS chief of staff John Gountanis; and his deputy, Tyler Houlton.
The Senate Intelligence Cmte. issued a bipartisan request for all of the intelligence analyses that Murphy referenced in his complaint, as well as any notes and materials that fed into them. The House Homeland Security Cmte. issued a subpoena for testimony from Wolf at a hearing on Sept. 17, but DHS says that Wolf will not comply and offers Cuccinelli to testify instead. Also scheduled to be at the hearing: FBI Director Christopher Wray and Christopher Miller of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Russia still interfering

Facebook recently took down accounts and pages associated with a Russian influence operation posing as an independent news outlet. The operation published content described as “an attempt to build a left-wing audience and steer it away from Biden’s campaign, in the same way that the original IRA [Internet Research Agency] tried to depress progressive and minority support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
  • The same Russian operation tried and failed to infiltrate left-wing media outlets such as Jacobin, Truthout, and In These Times.
Bob Woodward reported that“the NSA and CIA have classified evidence the Russians had placed malware in the election registration systems of at least two Florida counties, St. Lucie and Washington. While there was no evidence the malware had been activated, Woodward writes, it was sophisticated and could erase voters in specific districts.”
  • Woodward’s book also notes that former director of national intelligence Dan Coats has "deep suspicions" that Russian President Vladimir Putin "had something" on President Trump, seeing "no other explanation" for the president's behavior.
Microsoft alerted SKDKnickerbocker, one of Biden’s main election campaign advisory firms, that suspected Russian state-backed hackers had gone after the company with a failed phishing attack.

DOJ, politicization, and resignations

A top aide to Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, federal prosecutor Nora Dennehy, resigned from the Justice Department and Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. Dannehy reportedly resigned “at least partly out of concern” that Trump and AG Barr were exerting improper political pressure on the team to release results before the November election.
Several officials said expectations had been growing in the White House and Congress that Mr. Barr would make public, ahead of the election, some kind of interim report or list of findings from Mr. Durham before he completed the investigation. Mr. Barr had wanted Mr. Durham’s team to move quickly, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Trump has publicly expressed impatience with the Durham investigation, saying there should be more prosecutions and disclosures of information that would damage his political rivals. “Bill Barr has the chance to be the greatest of all time, but if he wants to be politically correct, he’ll be just another guy, because he knows all the answers, he knows what they have, and it goes right to Obama and it goes right to Biden,” Trump said (clip).
Last month, Barr predicted “significant developments in the probe before the election” (clip) and he indicated the DOJ would not respect an informal policy against taking investigative steps 60 days before Election Day. It was for this exact reason that the Trump administration claimed it fired former FBI Director James Comey.
On Tuesday’s Fox News, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows appeared to claim that he has seen documents—relevant to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe of the origins of the Russia investigation—which implicate several Trump and Obama administration officials in potentially illegal conduct.
  • Further reading: “Dannehy Resignation Confirms Barr’s Intent to Use Durham Probe for Political Ends,” Just Security.
Two other DOJ officials resigned last week:
Prosecutor John Choi resigned from Trump's law enforcement commission after expressing "serious" concerns that the intention of the commission was not to bridge the gap between communities of color and law enforcement.
Choi, a Democrat, said in his resignation letter that "it is now patently obvious ... that this process had no intention of engaging in a thoughtful and open analysis, but was intent on providing cover for a predetermined agenda that ignores the lessons of the past, furthering failed tough-on-crime policies that led to our current mass incarceration crisis and fueling divisions between our communities and our police officers."
Deputy Assistant AG David Morrell resigned on Friday, withdrawing from cases defending the government’s position on issues including the Census and the Portland protests.

The courts

A three-judge panel blocked the Trump administration from excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census for apportionment. Trump’s order violates a statue saying apportionment must be based on everyone who is a resident of the United States.
District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the Trump admin. to produce internal documents connected to its sudden decision to end the 2020 Census count a month earlier. Two weeks ago, Koh temporarily blocked the bureau from winding down the count until a hearing set for Sept. 17.
Court-appointed adviser and retired judge John Gleeson slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Michael Flynn, calling it a "corrupt and politically motivated favor.” A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 29.
"In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty -- twice, before two different judges -- and whose guilt is obvious," Gleeson wrote.
"Yet that is exactly what has unfolded here," he added.
A judge denied a bid to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that Trump's inaugural committee and the Trump Organization misused nonprofit funds to enrich the president's family business. The suit, brought by Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine in January, alleges that the president's inaugural committee was aware that it was being overcharged for services at Trump's Washington hotel in 2017 and still spent over $1 million at the hotel.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced two settlements totaling $583,100 with Deutsche Bank to resolve investigations into violations of Ukraine-related sanctions. The resolution came as the bank hired “an old friend” of AG Barr to “help the bank navigate the political waters in Washington.”

Trump profiting

Federal spending records show that taxpayers have paid Trump’s businesses more than $900,000 since he took office. At least $570,000 came as a result of the president’s travel.
In addition to the rentals at Mar-a-Lago, the documents show that the Trump Organization charged daily “resort fees” to Secret Service agents guarding Vice President Pence in Las Vegas and in another instance asked agents to pay a $1,300 “furniture removal charge” during a presidential visit to a Trump resort in Scotland.
Additionally, the Trump Organization has received at least $3.8 million in fees from GOP groups for headlining a political event at one of his properties.
Last month, the Trump Organization received approval for a new trademark in Argentina, the third one in the country. Last November, Trump may have altered U.S. foreign policy to assist his company in obtaining approval for the two previous trademarks. “Shortly after the trademark opposition period ended in April 2018, the Trump administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum in Argentina. Once the trademarks were officially granted to his company in November of last year, Trump announced that he would reinstate the tariffs.”
Somehow, Ivanka Trump’s fashion business is still making money despite being shutdown. According to her latest financial disclosures, “All operations of the business ceased on July 31, 2018.” Also according to her latest financial disclosures, she made at least six figures from the trust holding that business in 2019.
We - American taxpayers - footed the bill for “anti-scale fencing” along the perimeter of the White House this summer. The wall, ostensibly to protect Trump from protesters, cost over $1 million. Trump has a history of charging taxpayers for barriers around his properties, including $17,000 for fencing around Mar-a-Lago and $12,000 for “privacy fencing” around Trump International golf resort.

Immigration news

About 8,800 unaccompanied children have been quickly expelled from the United States along the Mexico border under a pandemic-related measure that effectively ended asylum. In total, the Trump administration has expelled more than 159,000 people since March.
ICE officers on the West Coast wanted to suppress Black Lives Matter protests in DC. But they aren't allowed to travel on charter flights without detainees on board. So they brought some detainees with them. In the process, they fueled a massive, deadly COVID outbreak at the Virginia facility that infected over 300 detainees, killing one.
The Pentagon is restarting many domestic projects that were plundered by Trump for money to pay for his border wall. The decision to revive these domestic projects has provided cover for Republican senators who were criticized when their home states lost military construction projects to the president’s wall.

Miscellaneous

Corruption: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is bringing back his extravagant, taxpayer-funded "Madison Dinners."
Corruption: Medicaid chief Seema Verma has charged taxpayers $6 million in less than two years for expensive consultants, organizers, and events. The Republican consultants were paid by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to work on Verma’s personal image, obtain profiles and coverage from friendly reporters, escort her during travel, write opinion articles, and even draft her Twitter posts.
Corruption: The Trump administration secretly withheld millions of dollars from a program for 9/11 first responders.
Corruption: “Ukraine gas company to add Rick Perry pick to board” and “Rick Perry’s Ukrainian Dream
Protests: Trump endorsed the extrajudicial killing of the suspect in a deadly Portland, Oregon, shooting. . “This guy was a violent criminal, and the US Marshals killed him,” Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. “And I will tell you something, that’s the way it has to be. There has to be retribution” (clip).
Protests: A witness claims that the Portland suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, was not armed and was shot by officers without any warning.
Rightwing: “QAnon fans spread fake claims about real fires in Oregon” and “'Do not take action yourselves': Multnomah Co. Sheriff's Office warns of illegal 'checkpoints' ”
Rightwing: Mark Zuckerberg says it's "just wrong" to consider Facebook a right-wing echo chamber driven by conservative voices. But data from his own company shows that’s exactly what Facebook is.
Environment: David Legates, a University of Delaware professor of climatology who has spent much of his career questioning basic tenets of climate science, has been hired for a top position at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Environment: How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled. Your plastic will not be recycled.
Environment: Trump’s Fire Sale of Public Lands for Oil and Gas Drillers: The Bureau of Land Management is rushing to auction off sites ahead of a potential Biden presidency.
World: The Iranian government is considering assassinating the US ambassador to South Africa in response to the killing earlier this year of Qassem Soleimani, according to highly classified intel reports. The plot against the ambassador, Lana Marks, is one of several options US officials believe Iran is considering for retaliation over Soleimani’s death.
  • Woodward reported that Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Trump not to assassinate Suleimani while on the golf course with the president. Graham warned Trump he would be raising the stakes from “playing $10 blackjack to $10,000-a-hand blackjack”. “This is over the top,” the senator said. “How about hitting someone a level below Suleimani, which would be much easier for everyone to absorb?”
World: Read some of the “love letters” Kim Jong Un sent to Trump.
World: Woodward also reported that Trump boasted that he protected Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Jamal Khashoggi's brutal murder. "I saved his ass,” Trump said. “I was able to get Congress to leave him alone. I was able to get them to stop.”

2020.09.13 21:18 BloodyPassion Apple devices are being hacked

I'm telling right away - TL;DR - I,m facing unprecedented hacking attack on Apple family of devices and need help. I'm in San Francisco and need someone who can do forensics of my mac mini and help to protect myself from people attacking me.
I'm the owner of 2 Macbooks pro, mac mini, Ipad, Iphone and iwatch, 1 apple id and 3 gmail accounts.
Everything was fine till August 3. Well I was dumb enough to use 3 variants of the same password with all my accounts. Implementing 1password or another password manager I was delaying for quite some time out of laziness I guess. We use lastpass at work and I silently hate it so didn't want to deal with something like that at home. It was an introduction. I'lll try to be as brief and as detailed as I can now.
Some details became a blur because I'm literally on a verge of a nervous breakdown at the moment.
On August 3 all my email accounts including apple id were hacked. Taken over by someone for at least several hours. Among those only 1 account is main, others are secondary, for job search, another for facebook and ebay, and the last one - apple id - for dating sites.
I was able to restore access to my accounts using my phone number within several hours. I work in big tech and our company was attacked by some people who used texting phishing tactics. First I thought it was connected to work and even filed a ticket telling them that my phone is hacked (there was some weird behavior on the phone) but work stuff seemed unaffected and ticket was closed. Hackers also got to my NAS where I has some old movies and frankly lots of porn collected since 2007. NAS wasn't connected, I mean I didn't have access to it because my wifi point went offline and I didn't bother to go to landlords and set it up (we have internet from landlords, one ISP but 2 different networks) but they somehow were able to take the porn library out, not the files but links to them. The stuff was from torrents so I decided ti get rid of the NAS and its contents, moreover I watch porn legally online now, torrents were in the past.
For several weeks it was quiet. Meanwhile I got a membership from Lookout and Lifelock because I had pics of my documents in icloud library: ssn, driver's license, medical insurance cards, Russian passport etc. It was literally an identity theft. Meanwhile Lookout informed me that my credentials were on dark web monthly since January 2020 and my SSN is public information.
As I said, 3 week were quiet. And then it started. All my emails were taken over again. First I found hidden backups of my machines with some video files on my macbook. Tried to delete them using sudo - didn't work, not enough rights. WTF. Then I pulled all the needed info to the cloud and decided to wipe the macbook and install the OS from scratch. Laptop started acting weird fast and I wasn't able to shut it down. Force quit didn't work, fan sounded as if it's a plain and it's going to take off. I had an impression someone controls my machine and erased if from icloud. Well, that's what I thought. Next time when I turned it on, there was a password on a disk. Password that I didn't add. Attempt to log in recovery mode led to grey screen with a passcode which I didn't implement either. After next reboot I discovered firmware password which was removed by Mobile Kangaroo but as for disk they told me to change it, thank god ssd are cheap now. Machine became a brick without a new disk. Apple mac genius bar was able to remove the lost passcode and install the OS only today. Then I had an awful Saturday on September 6th - they almost induced hysteria by taking over my accounts many times during the day. I changed the passwords numerous times before it. I have 2FA, mixed, with sms and authenticator app. But still they were able bypass these steps and changed the passwords to my accounts. I was barely able to take the accounts back but then started thinking that they know what I type as new password and somehow know the 2FA code. It didn't feel right, Apple is so secure. So I switched to iphone - allegedly the most secure device and changed the passwords from it. It seemed to help.Meanwhile it turned out they downloaded the whole archive from my gmail account since 2009 - there is such functionality. And also all my icloud. I have no idea what emails they send and where and what they deleted when they controlled my account. I know nothing about hacking but I had an impression they used safari to go to some websites - such as datadog, howtogeek, appletoolbox and lookout/legal and trendmicro/legal. Btw I have 4 antivirus apps, none of them found anything. Then I installed Little snitch, saw some incoming connections, not sure what it was, and then noticed tht my chrome started having hundreds and then thousands of outgoing connections to different Ipv4 addresses. Packets were rather small though.
Nightmare just started. IT turned out they knew my gmail passwords that I set up from the phone - they just sat quietly and waited for something. My mac mini started showing strange file with extension .prefPane in recents and different system folders in history where I haven't been. Then I finally intalled Google Wifi app and discovered unknown machine with the same name as my mac mini and almost the same mac address. It was sitting on our wifi for a week and downloaded 46gb of data. I have a screenshot, not on this machine unfortunately. I shut down my mac mini and didn't turn it on since then. I started checking my devices and discovered that my work laptop laptop also had some .prefPane files in history and bunch of system folders which I didn't touch. I know almost nothing about macOS structure and can just look at hidden files, that's it. I was more than concerned, told InfoSec at work that something is happenning, had 3 hours conversation with 2 serious men who told me that according to the logs my work machine is safe but personal stuff is probably breached. Judging by the recent files showing up in dropbox, icloud and google drive. Files which I didn't touch t all and many of them have sensitive and confidential information, health-related for example. Right there I decided to implement 1password but with all the craziness and password changing everywhere I saw that it didn't help - they still were able to change the password and take account back to them. Or after I changed the password I saw 4 different devices having access to my gmail account. I changed my laster password several time and after 1password had 21 most important logins and vault with pretty valuable documents - I finally forgot my masterpassword. I remember the words but specil characters in the end are a blur - I was tired and couldn't focus and forgot to write it down. So farewell my stuff in 1 password - unless I find the right combination 1 day. I made a conclusion that they were able to see my screen. Btw they bought apowersoft from my account, I found 1 email they apparently forgot to delete but I didn't find the software on my machines.... Apple support said everything what I say happening is highly unlikely especially on ios devices since they have government level of protection. But I see that with my own eyes... Also there is an army of bluetooth beacons around me, in very residential neighborhood. Many of them are literally near according to BLE Scanner. There is also BlueZ 5.44 device which connected to my Iphone bluetooth without any permission from me. I have no idea for how long. I think that's how hacking started... Then I discovered that my calls and messages were forwarded to bunch of devices which has the same names as mine but there are several mac minis there etc. My google voice had 2 or 3 extra devices to forward to.... Btw who am I - mid level QA engineer who is just studying programming and trying to do some automation at work. My technical level is pretty low. I saved some money since I moved to America. Not a lot, San Francisco is expensive city. I was born and raised in Russia but never had access to any secret info or high ranking persons, no one can be influenced by pressure on me, I'm a regular gay guy who fled from difficult life and persecution of gays in Russia and been living here in SFBA for the last 7 years.... So I'm nobody but I had a feeling there is team with 24/7 surveillance on me - I even thought it's government but government can silently spy on you and the come with subpoena or arrest order. These guys literally torture. Later - more. I definitely notice my ios devices went rogue. Face id stopped working and I had to reset it every time. Today passcode stopped working and I couldn't unlock the phone - had to wipe it using recovery mode. Created 2 wifi networks at home, one already had 2 unknown apple devices, one of the mac addresses is again very similar to mine. The biggest torture of this weekend - untransferable authenticator app where I keep 2FA codes for work and personal stuff. I spent bunch of time on ipad, freshly wiped via roommates mac, adding the codes to new transferrable app and when was about to transfer, they used the encryption function of the app with the password which can't be reset. Authy, I hate you as much as 1password. So all my codes turned out to be locked and useless. I wiped my ipad clean and started from scratch with 2 different apps - one for work, another or personal stuff. You not gonna believe it - they suppressed internet on ipad. It's connected to wifi or mobile spot but there is no internet icon on the upper right and it's not connecting. How is it possible on ios? Then my passcode on apple watch changed by itself before that showing keyboard on my phone 3 times. Then face id stopped working and passcode on my iphone changed. I'm not kidding. It's after I finished collecting 2FA accounts again. So I can't open my phone! The work of a half day went to shit. Then I tried to turn off the passcode on ipad and it didn't work. Some items disappeared from ios menu, for example Siri and Search... I talked to Lifelock - they said they gonna monitor my ssn, name, etc, like they always do. Wrote to Lookout, they answered with phone number where I need to call. Also need to call FTC, number was given by Lifelock. No money disappeared from my accounts, my saving account is restricted, credit bureaus are frozen. I'm afraid with all that info they have about me they want to take over my apple id or just commit cyber crimes on my behalf. I'm scared and don't know what to do, how to protect myself and my devices from everything happening. I can't live normal life for the last 2 weeks. Thank god people were sympathetic at work but my friends din't really believe me saying Apple has high class protection from such shit. But I saw all that with my own eyes. It takes them about couple of days to hack a freshly wiped phone or ipad, and less than several hours - freshly wiped mac. My roomie's apple devices seem to be unaffected despite the fact he downloads tons of torrents. Btw one more thing - on August 13 Lookout informed me that sim card is taken out of my phon despite the phone was in my pocket. On August 22 Lookout sent notification that sim went online. There were couple of calls to ATT on my behalf that I didn't do. All in all I live in hell last 2 weeks and need to get out of this crazy situation. I looked for some cybersecurity firms but they all work with prevention and with corporations, not individuals. Also my facebook was taken over but I announced it hacked and it's blocked now and neither of us can regain access because I have the email and hackers added their phone where they get 2FA which I ned to log in. No one contacted me asking for ransom or anything. I don't understand what's going on. Please help.

2020.09.13 13:53 BloodyPassion Attack on apple family of devices happening

I'm telling right away - TL;DR - I,m facing unprecedented hacking attack on Apple family of devices and need help. I'm in San Francisco and need someone who can do forensics of my mac mini and help to protect myself from people attacking me.
I'm the owner of 2 Macbooks pro, mac mini, Ipad, Iphone and iwatch, 1 apple id and 3 gmail accounts.
Everything was fine till August 3. Well I was dumb enough to use 3 variants of the same password with all my accounts. Implementing 1password or another password manager I was delaying for quite some time out of laziness I guess. We use lastpass at work and I silently hate it so didn't want to deal with something like that at home. It was an introduction. I'lll try to be as brief and as detailed as I can now.
Some details became a blur because I'm literally on a verge of a nervous breakdown at the moment.
On August 3 all my email accounts including apple id were hacked. Taken over by someone for at least several hours. Among those only 1 account is main, others are secondary, for job search, another for facebook and ebay, and the last one - apple id - for dating sites.
I was able to restore access to my accounts using my phone number within several hours. I work in big tech and our company was attacked by some people who used texting phishing tactics. First I thought it was connected to work and even filed a ticket telling them that my phone is hacked (there was some weird behavior on the phone) but work stuff seemed unaffected and ticket was closed. Hackers also got to my NAS where I has some old movies and frankly lots of porn collected since 2007. NAS wasn't connected, I mean I didn't have access to it because my wifi point went offline and I didn't bother to go to landlords and set it up (we have internet from landlords, one ISP but 2 different networks) but they somehow were able to take the porn library out, not the files but links to them. The stuff was from torrents so I decided ti get rid of the NAS and its contents, moreover I watch porn legally online now, torrents were in the past.
For several weeks it was quiet. Meanwhile I got a membership from Lookout and Lifelock because I had pics of my documents in icloud library: ssn, driver's license, medical insurance cards, Russian passport etc. It was literally an identity theft. Meanwhile Lookout informed me that my credentials were on dark web monthly since January 2020 and my SSN is public information.
As I said, 3 week were quiet. And then it started. All my emails were taken over again. First I found hidden backups of my machines with some video files on my macbook. Tried to delete them using sudo - didn't work, not enough rights. WTF. Then I pulled all the needed info to the cloud and decided to wipe the macbook and install the OS from scratch. Laptop started acting weird fast and I wasn't able to shut it down. Force quit didn't work, fan sounded as if it's a plain and it's going to take off. I had an impression someone controls my machine and erased if from icloud. Well, that's what I thought. Next time when I turned it on, there was a password on a disk. Password that I didn't add. Attempt to log in recovery mode led to grey screen with a passcode which I didn't implement either. After next reboot I discovered firmware password which was removed by Mobile Kangaroo but as for disk they told me to change it, thank god ssd are cheap now. Machine became a brick without a new disk. Apple mac genius bar was able to remove the lost passcode and install the OS only today. Then I had an awful Saturday on September 6th - they almost induced hysteria by taking over my accounts many times during the day. I changed the passwords numerous times before it. I have 2FA, mixed, with sms and authenticator app. But still they were able bypass these steps and changed the passwords to my accounts.

Never married, no kids. Been out of the dating scene for a bit and not entirely interested in anything beyond an activity partner with similar interests.
I don’t know a whole slew of people in the area and these days without concerts or random street fests etc it’s kinda hard to meet new people.
Not a heavy drinker but enjoy a good mead, bourbon or microbrew. Into jazz, indie, psychedelic, classic rock (Phish, Talking Heads, old school Blue Note, Phoebe Bridgers, KEXP and NPR sessions).
