VPN/proxy/TOR general thread Anonymous 04/15/2016 (Fri) 22:12:39 [Preview] No. 2 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Cool board idea.

What's the safest possible way to browse the internet anonymously and safely? There's a thread on /tech/ with the endwall developer talking about proxychains, and that seems pretty cool. Some of the links to proxy lists seem dead, and I have found some online but why should I trust these random 'free' proxies?

What about proxychains over VPN? I'm currently using Mullvad which is alright, and I'm curious about more security if need be. Does a VPN -> proxychain -> TOR connection work? Sounds horribly slow in theory, but I think we all know that privacy comes at a cost in our current world.

I suppose I could call this a 'VPN/proxy/TOR general thread.'

Use Digital Research DR DOS if you don't like Microsoft. I have reatail copies of MS DOS 5.0 on 5" floppies from 1988, and MS DOS 6.22 on 3.25" floppies retail from 1994. NSA\CIA\FBI etc don't have a time machine and can't retroactivley time travel and insert malware into the base system.

DOS is a Single Tasking 16 bit with OS programmed in x86 assembly; only 1 process on the top of the stack at a time. No keyloggers, runs in 384 KB .

You'll have to audit 2-3 pieces of software ( a driver for a 3com or Intel NIC, and links 2 browser ) and compile using Borland Turbo C, or get a GCC compiler for DOS.

Get a 486, or 386 with 16MB RAM install DR DOS or MS DOS, a NIC, a packet driver and the binary for Links, or compile it your self, set it to route through port 9050 on your tor router (running on linux/unix). With that you'll be free to post whatever you want, no one will know what you're doing on your computer, and if tor (or whatever comes next) works properly, then you'll be anonymous.

Free to read what you want from the internet, and post what you want to the internet.

>But but it's not FREE software,
> It's not GNU.
Precisley, I don't get copyright (legal) freedom, but I get actual (physical) freedom in the real world.
> But you could download an exploit your system isn't secure.

Don't download and run anything from the internet on the DOS computer if you want it to remain with integrity. Just text reading and posting, a communications tool. Build a different computer for DOS gamming or use DOS Box.

The ultimate step is to build an 8-bit computer with a soldering iron (RC2014), launch a browser in a community audited version of CP/M, connect by socks 5 proxy to a unix computer running tor with 12-15 hops, and use a text browser for the web and and irc client in text mode. Proxy out to Tor or I2P or whatever the next super duper anonymity router is. In the mean time do this with DOS. This won't be a solution for the everyman or for the newbie, but it will be a solution for the serious thinking man.

Anything you can do to isolate the tor daemon from the system or its running processes will help. I'm running it as a user with a custom torrc. If you can first run firejail or bubble wrap, or chroot it and get the tor daemon to still function it might help. I consider the linux/unix environment potentially hostile to the user and a potential source of packet inspection. Basically linux can be used to keylog the users and destroy the anonimity factor in real time or in post analysis. If there is key logging with an output beacon on your machine, you don't have privacy, and Tor Browser isn't going to help you with anonymity. If there is malware that can mess with the tor daemon as it's running, then it might be wise to try to isolate the process, so yeah probably a good idea. I'll try running it with firejail it probably won't work. If you get a setup like that and find it beneficial, please post the steps and instructions here. Thanks.

Welp, I'm really scratching my head on this one.

1) The Mac gives me "Select CD-ROM Boot Type" error and while I keep reading 'lol, just hold 1 and press enter at the exact right time bro' I can't seem to press return at the correct time, the 1 bit works because it shows as the selection so at least in theory it should work. Will probably try this a hundred more times.
2) I can't seem to make a bootable usb from the guix iso, so installing on another system and just inserting the drive is a no. UNetbootin is normally a sure win but I'm getting nowhere.

I am using Trisquel currently. It actually stalls for like 3-5 minutes every time I shutdown whilst it waits for all the systemd networking to hang itself. Not a comfy OS at all. Thankfully they switched to MATE though, because current GNOME is a fucking joke.

Nah, it's a fairly common bug with no solutions. Besides, I hope to be transferring to the mac with guix and repurposing my desktop as an HTPC.

I'm at a stand still currently. The Mac must be in worse shape than I thought. I tried just using my current drive which is efi but no good. So I thought of trying a Mac osx install DVD, no good, still gives the bug. Basically, unless I can figure a way around this fucking bug, this thing is never going to boot anything.

Does anyone happen to know, is there anything different or special about the efi a Mac needs versus PC? I don't think so myself so I'm wondering if there is a problem with the drive cable in the Mac.
My other option is libreboot which would solve the disc bug but I need a r-pi or something to flash the board.

A quick note to readers of 'high-speed' network attached storage providers. You're probably (hopefully) using NFS to export your file systems to remote hosts. Plz take the time to understand how NFS works over the network and what the constraints are. This (NFS) extends to include the behaviors of TCP/UDP too!

A few milli or nano seconds of latency may seem insignificant but when you're working with large volumes of sequential read/writes they start to add up!

The rules are linked right below the post box area (above Max file size tag). They are simple and fairly standard: no-cp like stuff, off-topic threads, low-effort posts...

You can still use x86 stuff, just don't make it your primary, Internet connected machines. ARM, MIPS, Power, RISC-V will have better options. Even some of those will have issues, but if you research them, you can find which ones are likely to be more secure. Non-integrated NICs/WiFI is a good idea, firmware has to be programmed specifically to use peripherals so it will likely not have included drivers for anything that isn't integrated directly into the board unless it can load external firmware in add-on cards (like some PCI(e) NICs/videocards can do). Intel Management Engine can use integrated NIC and WiFi, it can be provisioned to do so and the hardware is known to it. Integrated is not some random USB dongle device. Many of those listed architectures are minimalist and targeted for embedded type devices, not typically used in desktops, laptops, or workstations. They can be used for thin clients or ultra-portable netbook like machines for which heavy processing power is not needed or beneficial.

Then what is your alternative? The only thing you seemed to suggest was that one person should write projects, which seems even worse for anything that’s not a small project.
>quality, effective, lasting software that you use every day and that makes up 90% of the Internet infrastructure was actually developed and how it was maintained for decades.
Why specifically internet infrastructure and what is the way to write stuff? This is a nitpick, but I’d imagine stuff like developing self-driving cars or AAA game development might require a different form of organization. Sure a lot of people on tech might view those things as botnet or cancer, but saying “don’t make it” doesn’t really answer the question “how should you best organize a team to make it”. I’m not saying that agile/scrum is the solution, but a small group of programmers with little organization would be either.

It's free software and it doesn't interfere with any of the computing I do, I never had problems with it and it does what it's supposed to well. If there is a piece of software I'd dislike Poettering over, it's pulseaudio. I remember a few times that it broke my sound, but those issues have been resolved nowadays so there's no reason not to use it. I don't understand all of the whining about "UNIX philosophy" and "modularization." GNU's Not UNIX and GNU programs have always been robust (or "bloated," if you want to be rude) rather than minimalistic, look at EMACS for Christ's sake.

I don't.

I actually don't have much of a problem with the "bloatedness" but the ever-expanding scope is just cancerous thinking and I don't even know why it is allowed. We want to add some additional semantics to how we run binaries and we want to write declarative configuration files - fine, do it, but you have to stop somewhere, like, there should be a place where we design things and where we decide what to do and what not to do. Honestly it just makes me think that the bazaar model fails here instead of the cathedral one.
>b-but it werks
It doesn't. Look at all the "features" systemd provides. I'm guessing more than half of them just don't work (if you want an example, my beef was with wake-on-lan preparation of network adapters) and it works for your paticular use case because you don't stray off the beaten path too far.
>but it still provides a way to add shell initscripts and whatnot
It does, but why would I use the systemd then if I can use old and tried initscripts? Why should I double my work on configuration or try to debug some obscure edge-case in a million LOCs work? No thanks.

Saying that though, for an end user it doesn't really matter as long as they don't do anything and stick with the distro default. Nice fucking new Windows we got here, I actually cannot wait for Linux to crumble already. There are tons of bugs in the kernel nobody fixes because not enough manpower and because it's actually hard, way harder than even 10 years ago. I would go to *BSD but using unix-like systems made me realize I don't like Unix that much. Time to look for a meme OS or to write one myself.

Pulse audio is risky. One it uses a cookie. And pipes audio everywhere. Everything on a computer can osculate. Much like your headphones can be turned into a headphone. Or your key board strokes could be key logged. This may be tin foil but Pulse is less secure. Also dependencies. remove libpulse0 and see what happens.

systemd is great. I like to get cycked in the long run.

There's better async serial solutions for Amigas.
Modern and old.

Anonymous 01/09/2020 (Thu) 00:12:10 [Preview] No.14001 del
yeah I know. If I'm up to date, I think the fastest you could go right now with an FASTRammed A600 would be a PCMCIA network card with the roadshow TCP/IP stack but I want a computer thing without TCP/IP in my house. I also don't really like the layers of abstraction it adds. Not that it would be a computational problem, it's more of a philosophical and nostalgic one. Amiga for me personally when I got my first one back in the day was the time before LANs or even computerized things everywhere and it just doesn't "feel right" to me. Just don't want it, don't need it.

If I want fast I have plenty of silicone around that goes a lot faster without much of an effort. I've used faster Amigas with some really fast acceleration cards and somehow it's like putting a Porsche engine into a Lada beyond some point. It just doesn't make a lot of sense except for dick-measuring contests. A very moderate 020 expansion that doubles or triples the system clock so the CPU can get a few extra cycles between the chipset is where I see the Amiga at the very fastest. Everything else is diminishing returns and IMHO, kinda nonsense in this day and age. I don't understand why you'd want to invite the bloatedness and shittiness of the modern IT world into such a simple and elegant system.

Back to topic - Then you also could use the parallel port for file transfer, you could even use the external disk port to implement a faster serial port with some glue logic, most of all though a serial port that doesn't strain the CPU as much. I once had a SPI interface implemented on the disk drive port, it was a while ago. You can generally get a lot of speed out of that port if you put the effort in, the CIAs are not that slow. For a computer from 1987 that is. Kids nowadays would say the parallel port and disk drive port can be used as GPIO.

Then you could also install the various patches and implementations of the serial.device that are less CPU-heavy than the Commodore-supplied one. I like artser most there as it's the one that breaks the least from my tests.

I did none of the above and instead found a 16 bit RS232 card for the PCMCIA port for five bucks. That's a lot cheaper&easier than whipping sth. up. I can max it out pretty much and functionally it's more or less the same than what I was planning. There was even already a driver with source code included on aminet, which is always nice.

I had so much fun with this little setup in the last few days, more than I had with IT in general for a long time, which made me ignore all my other projects for the time being. I did some writing/organizing/journaling (yea gay) and some pixel art stuff. I like to just turn everything electronic off, sit down at the Amiga with a cup of coffee and go at what I want to do. The only sound is the disk clicking the gotek's speaker makes. (yes I can turn that off, I don't wanna) I imported the old narrator.device from 2.05 into 3.1 and have the Amiga occasionally drone some information at me with the robotic voice. That was the future world we dreamed about until it turned into well.. this.

I pulled an old Mitsubishi FDD with black bezel out of my computer piles and I plan to modify it for the use with the Amiga, it should fit very well with the smoked acrylic case. While the Flash-Floppy Gotek is practical, I have a metric ton of old floppy disks. I kinda wanna use them and want the tactility of them back. I even found one of my old disk boxes. Dunno.. seemed like an interesting idea.

Next step after that is higher integration with a fast ARM linux machine via arexx and a gcc environment for 68k. Compared to the Amiga, every ARM is a supercomputer and some of that processing power could be harnessed to expand some functionality or just to speed up some number crunching. I also wanted to look for a good Amiga forth interpreter/compiler.

I have to use this for school and for my part time job. It uses AES-256 bit in ECB mode. And was generating the session keys on servers in China. I've added a picture from zoom 5.0 on windows 10.



"The report points out that Zoom may be legally obligated to share encryption keys with Chinese authorities if the keys are generated on a key management server hosted in China. If the Chinese authorities or any other hypothetical attacker with access to a key wants to spy on a Zoom meeting, they also need to either monitor the internet access of a participant in the meeting, or monitor the network inside the Zoom cloud. Once they collect the encrypted meeting traffic, they can use the key to decrypt it and recover the video and audio."

Post any other relevant information here or in the security news section. I feel that this is a massive error that people are making using this software.

Preventing Windows 10 and untrusted software from having full access to the internet using OpenBSD


Whilst setting up one of my development laptops to port some software to Windows I noticed Windows 10 doing crazy things like installing or updating apps and games by default after initial setup. The one I noticed in particular was Candy Crush Soda Saga which for those who don’t know of it is some cheesy little puzzle game originally for consumer devices. I honestly did not want software like this near to a development machine. It has also been reported that Windows 10 now also updates core system software without notifying the user. Surely this destroys any vaguely deterministic behaviour, in my opinion making Windows 10 by default almost useless for development testbeds. Deciding instead to start from scratch but this time to set the inbuilt Windows Firewall to be very restrictive and only allow a few select programs to communicate. In this case all I really needed to be online was Firefox, Subversion and Putty. To my amusement (and astonishment) I found out that the Windows firewall could be modified to give access very easily by programs during installation (usually because this task needs to be done with admin privileges). It also seems that Windows store Apps can change the windows firewall settings at any point. One way to get around this issue could be to install a 3rd party firewall that most software will not have knowledge about and thus not attempt to break through. However the only decent firewall I have used was Sygate Pro which unfortunately is no longer supported by recent operating systems....

Drive Encryption
I'm currently encrypting my 2TB files drive on D:\ and my 500GB C:\ Drive on windows 10 using Bitlocker. This is for if you have to work from home with "Sensitive Documents" or files from work, or if you travel with a laptop that must have windows 10 due to applications needs or other factors. If you encrypt your device, the damage from theft or loss is much smaller than if left unencrypted. I will post some links to show how to enable Bitlocker without a "Trusted Platform Module" hardware unit. You will use a password. Select a strong password using passgen with around 20-40 characters and write it down and store it in a safe until you can memorize the sequence. Bear in mind that nothing that you do on windows 7,8,10 etc is private. Use this only for work files and documents that you need to protect from physical interdiction, theft or accidental loss that you must use with or in conjunction with Windows or Windows applications.

Windows Defender Firewall

Go to the search tab and type firewall. Select windows defender firewall. Click on advanced settings. Block all incoming and outgoing traffic by default. Then wipe out all of the policies or click disable, better to click delete and remove them. Then add the policies that you need. Lock them down by application if need be. Play around with the detailed rules and use filters for programs, ports and ip addresses to get the desired effects for your network applications to work. Adding new programs magically changes your firewall settings, but go back and fix them after each new application install. Wipe out and delete all inbound rules. If you need to let inbound come in, then you should know enough about the application to configure it.
Block everything and only let out/in what you need to go out/in, specific programs, ports and ip addresses.

Then you can install programs that work in Xorg server and call them from the command line and they'll pop up in windows on the desktop.

Bear in mind all of this is for convenience while you work on Windows, you can also access Linux tools in the shell and some GUI programs as well. Alternatively try Cygwin and CygwinX:

"Many times I've heard 'This is fixed in the last Linux kernel, and in OpenBSD 3.2.'" – Michael Warren Lucas

You either want Qubes OS, OpenBSD, or TAILS. Qubes OS would better suit for a desktop use, especially with faster graphics and more packages.

You probably want OpenBSD for a secure-by-default server, that you would update every 6 months, provided that parallelism isn't what you need most.

TAILS is useful as a desktop OS again, if you're an activist. It's what I'm using right now.

Sure, Fedora or Ubuntu would be more secure than Windows. Keep in mind that Fedora is maintained by Red Hat (NSA) and Ubuntu is maintained by Canonical (Five Eyes, GCHQ).

I don't trust any other "security-focused" distro because I don't see why it would be more secure than Debian or RHEL, and I don't see how they are innovative, either.

Western Digital used to make their own tools and utilities for their products, but now they're doing the third-party marketing-partnership fail dance with this sorry sack of shit. Instead of writing a basic utility to clone data from a competitor's drive to theirs, Western Digital puts a download link to this trial-version network-activation Acronis bullshit with a "30 day grace period" and whatnot, and then it doesn't even see the drive that is right there.

Instead of doing work, it's become all too common to look for a "win-win" partnership of some kind. If I adopted this line of thinking, then maybe instead of writing a couple paragraphs of text to post to an imageboard, I could "partner" with someone else to write them for me, and in exchange they could casually mention that if you're not quite up to typing something today, you can always swing by http://too-fucking-lame.to-do-it-yourself.com and we can work out a mutually beneficial deal!

Solid choice on avoiding license-cuck software. I'd recommend clonezilla as a general use "cloning" util (aka sparse imaging) since it is filesystem aware and won't take as long for drives that aren't completely full and probably work better for inexactly matching drives.

Just hope your new drive isn't SMR since WD and Seagate are sneaking these fake drives into lots of product lines including the raid marketed WD reds.
