Anyone here interested in a new version of 2ch for us gaijins?

So someone on /jp/ created a Western version of Ayashii World (sadly offline - RIP) and it got me wondering - we haven't had a true Western equivalent to 2ch ever since world2ch imploded all those years ago, and it's high time we got one. So what do you think? Would you post on a new Western version of 2ch?

Australia's Tactic

In NSW last year, I was made stupider by the Australian Federal Government, and I would like to warn others about this tactic as it is used by Australia. If you have an enemy, or in this case, a perceived enemy, you can't beat them up without an investigation, you can't kill them without an investigation, but if you were to make them 20% less intelligent you completely remove their ability to do what they intend to do, and that is what Australia did to me. I have no idea about their motivations, but that's what they did. Keep in mind, even something as simple as lead powder bought from your local hardware or online for $20 can make someone less intelligent and act out violently as well, so this tactic can be done by anyone at all on earth.

I contacted the CIA, FBI, consulate, embassy, and drove over 7,000kms to Pine Gap to whine in person, all to no avail. I have not even been contacted about this, despite complaining 24/7, sending over 100k emails, and going to everyone including giving letters to the Chinese consulate etc. Therefore as this tactic is 100% effective, and there is no chance of ever being caught, I want to warn others to watch out for Australia using this tactic on them, as they will have no recourse once the attack is carried out, therefore prevention is the only way.

Keep in mind, if there is a criminal group being investigated they could easily make the investigators stupider as a tactic, or if there is a trail then they could make the prosecutor stupider, and it would be undetectable and set them free more effectively than killing the person. That's one reason why some of the thousands of people I reported this to should have cared, but when you have Australia blocking and spoofing and lying it's impossible to get attention.

As it is, it's been over a year since I originally started doing all I can to get attention to this issue. I spent 6 months being tortured in NSW, and the last 6 months in NT being kept broke, I have only recently been allowed to get a job, and this Friday my last financial link to the USA was cut off, I was hit with a fradulent charge and forced to cancel my only US debit card. I am now completely exposed in every way to the very people who lowered my IQ and tortured me for 6 months in NSW, and the people who kept me broke or busy for 6 months here in the NT (as if I want anything besides to be able to move the fuck on!!!!) perhaps operating under the assumption that if I am busy or broke I will be less likely to be believed or get help. It's quite the opposite, all I have been begging for every day is to be allowed to achieve a middle class income so I can start to heal from the trauma.

There's a lot more than this, I live at Unit 22, 3 Larapinta Drive, Gillen, NT, 0870, and my name is Max Freedom Moussa Pollard. Please do not contact Australia, they will use it as an excuse to hurt me further. It's been a very very very long time and believe me. Please note I am totally fine now, merely annoyed and as you can imagine it's not the kind of thing you will ever get over, so I'm mad. Once I have a middle class income I will be able to start the healing process, but until then I am very much PTSD. Totally safe, secure and happy at the moment besides the fact I have been kept completely broke, and I'm now cut off from all US finance on top of that.

It goes without saying that nobody will complain as much as me about this, and I doubt anyone besides me would notice, therefore taking my case as an example, this is a crime nobody will ever be caught for. This is a crime with no chance of being caught for, ever. It can be done on anyone 1000x ways, it's evil.

Software guru McAfee found DEAD in Spanish prison

>Former antivirus magnate John McAfee was found dead in his prison cell in Barcelona just hours after a Spanish court approved his extradition to the US on tax evasion charges, authorities in Madrid have told national media.
>McAfee, 75, was found in his cell at the Sant Esteve Sesrovires jail on Wednesday evening, Spanish media reported, citing an official statement from the Ministry of Justice. Guards and prison medical staff intervened and attempted resuscitation, but to no avail, the ministry said.
>Investigators have been dispatched to the jail to probe the cause of death, but “everything indicates it could be a suicide,” the ministry added.
>Earlier Wednesday, a Spanish court ruled to allow his extradition to the US on charges of evading taxes between 2014 and 2018, which could have landed him in prison for up to 30 years. US authorities also had civil charges pending against McAfee for an estimated $13 million in profits from cryptocurrency schemes. McAfee was arrested in Spain in October 2020 and held in jail as a “flight risk” pending his extradition hearing.

CPU/hardware backdoors, coming up with solutions ....

usually, it would require to externally/internally flash a libreboot bios and/or remove Intel ME with me_cleaner then install a fully free system such as parabola, so in this way the CIA can't glow on that computer.

fsf's ryf approved notebooks meet the requirements of freedom in hardware. sadly those resources aren't so accessible.. buying a ThinkPad made before intel ME and internally flashing libreboot (specifically X60) seems to be the easiest way to replicate what fsf did. in which sadly I couldn't find any X60 out there.

RISC-V powered computers are also an alternative, though I don't know any computer/notebook that has a RISC-V CPU .

ARM powered computers such as raspberry pi 4 seems to be a safe alternative since I haven't seen anyone whistleblowing about backdoors nor spyware on their hardware nor software, is it safe though ? what are your thoughts on this matter ?

Literally No Reason To Not Use Windows 10

>IT'S B-BLOATED!!!!1!
And you're telling me you can't afford a $200 PC from the past 5 years that will run it seamlessly? Sell your 15 year old Thinkpads that can't even into AVX or non-fixed pipeline GPUs.
>SECURITY RISK!1!!!!1!
Have you anything to hide? No one cares about you. You aren't developing anything significant. You aren't a threat to the current ecosystem. You aren't a terrorist/spy/lone-wolf actor. FVEY has better places to spend its resources on. You're already being watched with facial recognition, Low-Earth orbit imagery satellites, and backbone-level deep-packet inspection.
You can disable the telemetry in settings. Go a step further too and get the Enterprise edition with minimal software preinstalled.
>BROKEN AND BUGGY1!!1!
In the beginning? Sure, but now its quite stable, and you'll be hardpressed to come across any problems. Linux, on the other hand, presents you with hours of work, ranging from broken audio to missing files to a lack of hardware and application support.
>NON-FREE!11!!1!
You're paying for consistent updates and almost full support for any and every application in existence. The user experience and interface is only beaten by Mac OS from Apple, and is lightyears ahead of anything Linux could bring to the table.
You don't take advantage of FOSS. You've never looked into the software to determine how it works.
>MICROSOFT IS SHITTY COMPANY11!!!!!1!
And Stallman is a foot-eating pedophile. Separate the art from the artist.
>NON-CUSTOMIZABLE!1!!1!
Windows is utilitarian with a focus on getting shit done. It won't waste your time with hundreds of customizable options and features. It just works. Imagine spending 10 minutes writing assembly code every time you wanted to use your microwave. The people who use windows only care about the applications inside of it, not stupid crap like sub-pixel rendering and kernel parameters.
>NORMALFAG1!!!!!11!
Your elitism is nothing. "Normal" people are happy, fulfilled, and have their heads on straight. You on the other hand have spent countless hours behind a screen, posting on strictly anonymous websites, angry about the state of the world and how you're so much better than everyone else.
>FUCK YOU!1!!!1!
No.

There is literally no reason to use Linux. It had its purpose, but the functions it can perform are now but a subset of the functions Windows can perform.

Make the switch.

Tesla’s Autopilot is ‘easily’ tricked into working without anyone in the driver’s seat

Consumer Reports said Thursday it was “easily” able to trick Tesla’s Autopilot system to operate without anyone in the driver’s seat. The publication’s test came amid questions about the safety of the company’s advanced driver assist system in the aftermath of a fatal crash in Texas in which authorities said there was no one behind the steering wheel.

Using a weighted chain attached to the steering wheel to simulate the pressure of the driver’s hands, two Consumer Reports researchers were able to use the steering wheel dial on a Tesla Model Y to accelerate from a full stop, and then “drive” around on a closed-course test track for several miles — all while sitting in the passenger seat and backseat. They stopped the vehicle by again using the dial to bring the speed back down to zero.

Tricking the Tesla to operate without someone behind the wheel was as simple as keeping the driver’s seatbelt buckled, not opening the driver’s side door during the test, and using the weight to simulate hands on the steering wheel.

“The car drove up and down the half-mile lane of our track, repeatedly, never noting that no one was in the driver’s seat, never noting that there was no one touching the steering wheel, never noting there was no weight on the seat,” Jake Fisher, CR’s senior director of auto testing, said in a statement. “It was a bit frightening when we realized how easy it was to defeat the safeguards, which we proved were clearly insufficient.”

Darkweb Intro

Alright, could anyone give me a basic bitch primer on dark web for little babbies? My knowledge at the moment is limited to Tor, and the onion addresses for the hidden wiki, and the onion address for Endchan. I'm starting to realize given how every site I liked has been shut down, switched domains, DDOSed, put on watchlists, or made 'registration only' on clearnet channels (a sidenote: I would have thought this would have happen to the porn sites I visit, but oddly enough, those are A-OK on clearnet) that I need to go ahead and plan for the future and just move whole-hog to Dark Web. To those who wil say I'm a little late to figuring this out: you're right. Here's what I would like if anyone can supply it:

- What are all the darkweb channels? Tor, I2P, Zeronet, Freenet....am I missing any?
- Any basic tips on general usage/quickstarts for each channel. Pros/cons of each.
- Good starter websites for each. I'm particularly interested in news/forums, and any libertarian websites.

Thank you very much m(_ _)m

All v3 Onion Addresses Down After Attack On The Tor Network

>You will currently not be able to access any v3 onion addresses, what is happening is unknown, but it is potentially a huge attack on the entire network. Earlier today I made a post outlining consequences I would be putting into place to deter markets from funding DDoS attacks against each other, as the potential to scale and completely kill every node on the network is a very real potential outcome. Now everything is down and I have no idea if this has sped up the process of this occurring or if it is even an attack at all, all I know is, this is big.

>This attack began after Dread forum owner, HugBunter made a post stating the consequences for market owners who continue to attack rival markets.

All AMD Processors Since Phenom II Have BadBIOS Circuitry That Leaks to the Military

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

The same way AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can also be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS vastly nastier than Stuxnet.

American military made a grave mistake to partner with the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

Dozens of arrests after "secure" messaging app cracked

During a national police action from the police in the Netherlands and Belgium, 75 house searches were carried out and 30 people were arrested after investigation services had managed to crack encrypted messages via the "Sky ECC" message service from various criminal organizations.

28 firearms have been seized in Rotterdam, says the OM. According to the OM, thousands of kilos of drugs were seized, drug labs dismantled and 43 people arrested in previous actions in the context of the same investigation.

Since February of this year, investigative services have been able to monitor -likely via a server that they had taken over- the messages that suspects sent via Sky ECC. As a result, “dozens of planned serious violent crimes, including kidnappings, liquidations and shootings,” said the National Prosecutor’s Office in a press release.

Human Rights Don't Exist in Brazil

There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.

Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.

As the subject says. It's been entered into their custom "bitch at the user with a popup until they disable it" database. To be fair to the developer, he has solid reasons for his stance. I'll try to summarize as there is a lot of misinformation and emotion out there fogging the issue.

1) The Palemoon project does not have enough developer juice to debug other software and addons.
2) Various users: "[website] does not work with Palemoon. Fix your shit, Moonman!"
3) Moonman: "Known issue. Stop being morons and disable NoScript. Thank you, and have a nice day."
4) Various users: "We did. Same problem. Fix your shit."
5) Moonman: "Oh. That's an actual issue with Palemoon then. I'm on it!"
6) Much hacking and cracking and time and talent are expended to no effect. Surprise! NoScript does not follow the standard of letting go of the browser when disabled. It lingers on. It has to be completely uninstalled with an added cache clearing operation on top of that.
7) Moonman: "It's NoScript. Get rid of it. Have a nice day."
8) Various users: "No. FIX YOUR SHIT!"
9) Moonman: "Crush. Kill. DESTROY!"

If you roll with my simplification you can see his point.

I have two observations. First, quite a few sites have a technical support checklist that runs like this: "What browser are you using? Palemoon? Oh good! We have two fixes you may choose from. One, use another browser. Two, go away and do not come back."

My irony sense is tingling.

Second observation. While understandable, M.C. Straver's hissyfit behavior is stunningly reminiscent of none other than the creator of NoScript, Giorgio Maone. I am speaking of the legendary extension war between Adblock Plus and NoScript. Mr. Maone learned his lesson and humbly carried on, much to his credit. The impression I get from Mr. Straver is not so favorable. In any event, I do not have the time to await some developer's philosophical enlightenment, nor the fortitude to scale the wall Mr. Straver threw up against public user feedback, be that feedback soberly measured or otherwise.

So, I would like to hear from the community. There are a few options I am not willing to entertain, although I do not mind people discussing them in thread.

1) Tor bundle. I already use it and am happy with it, but not for all my web traffic.
2) Just replace NoScript with uMatrix and keep Palemoon. Not a bad idea, but not going to happen.
3) IE. Lawl. Last time I used IE by choice was at version 4.
4) Firefox. Today, I view FF versus IE as a distinction without difference. Which is why I moved to Palemoon.
5) Chrome. No. Just ... no.

What browser would you recommend as a replacement?

And now, the current contender list.

1) 64 bit systems: Waterfox.
2) 32 bit systems: Dunno. This is going to be a problem for me.
