Imperfect Forward Secrecy

While you are fixing your OpenVPN and SSL for SWEET32 don't forget to update settings for weak Diffie Helman Primes.

Diffie-Helman Key Exchange isn't as secure as you thought.

Primes below 1024 bits are insecure. Disable DHEXPORT and configure key exchange to use primes longer than 2048 bits.

Paper: https://weakdh.org/imperfect-forward-secrecy-ccs15.pdf

DES, Triple-DES considered harmful: SWEET32
(This also includes other eight byte block cyphers like Blowfish and IDEA)

As the OpenSSL Blog put it: "Because DES and Triple-DES use only a 64-bit block size, birthday attacks are a real concern. With the ability to run Javascript in a browser, it is possible to send enough traffic to cause a collision, and then use that information to recover something like a session Cookie. Their experiments have been able to recover a cookie in under two days. More details are available at their website. But the take-away is this: triple-DES should now be considered as “bad” as RC4."

As we discussed in an earlier post, most defenses focus on the post-exploitation stage of the attack, by which point it is too late and the attacker will always maintain the advantage. Instead of focusing on the post-exploitation stage, we leverage the enforcement of coarse-grained Control Flow Integrity (CFI) to enhance detection at the exploitation stage.

Muslims Kill More Muslims & Jews combined period!

A Religious Genocide is being perpuatred through senseless acts of terror and brutal violence that have been committed by young vulnerable radicialized islamic suicide bombers driven by Islam secularists. So ... I'm calling Bullshit.

I believe it's time that we arrest and put on trial every police officer that uses violence against anyone, especially those that shoot people. they are welcome to enjoy justice system the same as the rest of us and they should be held accountable for murder the same as the rest of us.
 
Witnesses say it's likely Harris was trying to communicate with the officer in sign language just before his death.

and they must be prosecuted by an objective, third party, civilian board. this "thin blue line" BS where they always protect their own needs to be fed into a freaking wood chipper.

If you carry an EpiPen in case of a deadly allergic reaction, you’ve probably noticed the price skyrocket over the last decade. The injectors now cost over $600 and still expire after a year, so it may be tempting to carry an expired EpiPen, or none at all. There’s an alternative, though: the Adrenaclick is a different device that delivers the same drug.

Lousy passw0rds strike again!
Most criminals don’t need to target software to infiltrate a network and get at sensitive data: getting credentials will do the job just fine.
