This is an survey of Instructional Design Professionals in Latin America and the Caribbean (must be an ID professional residing in the region) from one of my former professors: https://utampa.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1zdZSUgGG5U2mO1?fbclid=IwAR3sMpGbHuQypY6Kj2HE3ZP1GABMu2FeDmogeLMHK95_cAsX7w8kSej1ke4
If you could fill this out, it'd be most appreciated.
PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.
Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.
There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.
Neat, just got an email from DO about the latest CPU flaws, don't recall getting any for issues like L1TF and I think it was Foreshadow in particular? The reason I've had SMT disabled on all the machines I work with and protect for the past few MONTHS.
Thank you #OpenBSD, #DragonFlyBSD, and #HardenedBSD in particular for being proactive in providing mitigations for the vulnerabilities Theo speculated about last year and many others, making security easier for the rest of us to implement well.
I think platform biases are interesting, two people in a chat have issues on a BSD system they aren't willing to troubleshoot? Must be an instable platform. Try several different methods to clone a Linux install to a testing instance? Must be user error.
I just hope the irony isn't lost on them when someone complains to them that Linux is broken because it's not Windows.
"The safest workaround to prevent this extremely powerful attack is running trusted and untrusted applications on different physical machines"
It seems Theo is right after all! https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=119318909016582
I'm thinking I'll look into writing a simple disk monitoring daemon, just something that can accept messages from a client and respond with the relevant disk info.
Probably going to be in way over my head, but it'd be nice to have a way to query drive info so it can be part of my status bar, and I'm sure I'll learn things.
