Hundreds of Millions of Dell Users at Risk from Kernel-Privilege Bugs
https://threatpost.com/dell-kernel-privilege-bugs/165843/


For a moment I was fearing I'd have to replace my ancient del servers. The I realized they are so ancient they predate this bug.

I'm going to have to research this. I don't think I've got push firmware enabled on the Dells I own. They don't make it clear in the article if a remote attack can be initiated against the firmware - or if you need physical access.

Threats of this kind are not even new. Insecure BIOS-flash drivers have been a known vector for quite some time now. I'll bet that this was quietly known and exploited in certain circles for years.

If I were to make another attempt at I2P, is it safe to say you're not using it and I won't break your workflow?  I think the answer is yes but I wanted to make sure.

Even if you dont have it enabled, with Vpro, dont be surprised if you actually do anyway :) 

Amazing how they snuck that into pretty much everything modern and no one really noticed the HUGE hole it was until it was too late...Putting effectively another computer at a lower level that has access to *everything* and never turns off, cant be a good idea to anyone, other than those wanting the control.

Tho it did quietly make minix the most used OS on the planet for non-mobile devices.

I am using it, but not with Uncensored. SOme other people and I tried your i2p interface after you migrated it but it didn't work so we fell back to Tor.

Ok then I'm going to delete it, and I'll try again at some future date.

Been reading about this.  not good.  

I guess you can scan for it ( and i think others ) by using some tool funded by people like Amnesty international.

Evidently India has been fucking with the Dahli Lama because China is trying to control who the next one selected will be... because... politics. Bunch of Monks running around with compromised iPhones and Android devices.

gross, the way China wants to stamp out organized religion. They justify their takeover of Tibet on the rationale that the monks were spiritual charlatans, exploiting the population.


Guess what? Now there's just a different set of exploiters.

Sure. I have heard there is a list of "acceptable" religions to follow in China, such as Taoism (follow the events and don't fight your circumpstances, of TAO WILL CRUSH YOU). Stepping out of the allowed list is bad for you.

The Tao doesn't exactly teach "go with the flow." I mean, it teaches that the flow is there, and that the counterflow is there too - and both are necessary and that a harmonious balance is ideal. 

For example - without China and North Korea and Cuba to measure ourselves again, how would we know if we were doing better or worse? You could claim that we would implicitly know we were doing better because we are better - but without a benchmark to measure against - if we were doing terrible - it would be VERY difficult to determine. It would just be "what we knew".
