I think it's safe to assume that if your DVR has "cloud"
capabilities, the Bad People are using it to spy on you.  At the
very least, "lawful intercept" (which is now "whenever they feel like

it intercept") would have access.

I don't have security cameras.  I think about it once in a while. 

I suppose the analog systems are secure if you don't attach the DVR
to the Internet, or perhaps to an isolated segment that doesn't have

outbound access, but then you have to run cables to every camera
instead of just hooking into the nearest available ethernet (or
wifi).  For a truly secure IP-based system, you probably have to
roll your own to keep Winnie Xi Pooh away from it.

Of course, my wife still has the damn Facebook app on her phone, so
the Bad People are
already listening in on our conversations anyway.


I remember thinking about placing some cameras in my horse fields in order to check on them while I am away. In the end of the day it becaoe obvious that the only way to guarantee the horseEs' privacy against the United States of China was rolling my own cameras. There are some cool camera projects for rpis out there.

The main issue is that then you have to run wires everywhere, and I don't like wires in the horse area. Specially nearly the haystacks.

Great so about 1030 i started getting undeliverable messages.  1000s of them.  Someone has decided to use my domain to spoof spam from. 

Lesson learned: SPF is not optional ( actually i thought they had it on by default.  but im a legacy account for nearly 2 decades so i guess it never happened on its own ).  With luck i wasn't black listed first.

Yeah, if you are running your own domain/email server - definitely implement SPF because some domains will classify everything you send as spam otherwise

Well, potential spam. But same difference.

I'm with a commercial hosting service, they run the server. 

I just assumed they would be doing things like that for their clients.

Many providers don't, even if they happen to manage the domains themselves, which is lazy on tyheir part.

However, I have noticed it in medium sized providers and it looks like they can get away with it. Maybe they have a deal with the big oners so they don't get blacklisted anyway?

May not be the right place for this, but this is uncool. 

1 - security ramifications.

2 - its MY bandwidth, i paid for it. Go buy your own.

3 - if you are on a plan that has data caps, you are screwed.

Sorta depends... if you have full control over your DNS records, maybe the responsibility is on you to set it up.

Maybe if it was just your personal-use email, you might not know the difference beyond the occasional need to tell one of your contacts to "check your spam folder."

But I have worked at 2 or 3 corporations that send large amounts of customer email--not quite spam, but definitely bulk--and I can tell you that at these places, it was Received Wisdom that we had to implement SPF. Otherwise our bulk sends would miss a significant percentage of recipients.

I do have full control, but they setup all the defaults for the domain ( ssh, ftp, bla bla ), including mail.   I could change them, and  i can of course add new records.

 

Either way, its there now and i know to check it now if i ever move again.
