"Facebook is asking some new users to provide the password to their email account.
The move has alarmed security experts, who warn it could encourage users to engage in "risky" behaviour and increase their chances of being hacked.
The social network also appears to be accessing these users' contacts without asking for permission.
The company now says it is discontinuing this login tool, though it didn't give a timeframe."
IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, this is similar to the original aims of the Web, but IPFS is actually more similar to a single bittorrent swarm exchanging git objects. IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP. It could complement or replace even more. It sounds crazy. It is crazy.
F/LOSS is probably the single best discovery in my life. As you understand more about various technologies, you get pessimistic about the ability to fix shitty situations like youtube/google.
However, seeing how people have become fed up with their lack of control in systems like Windows, and created ReactOS, as imperfect as it is, is a great thing.
It really shows that if you piss off hackers enough they'll replace systems, even if it's imperfect, because they took back control.
"The pilot project called 'Light Pole as a Platform' will enable the government to 'conduct crowd analyzes' and support anti-terrorist operations through 'various types of sensors on poles, including cameras that can support back-end facial recognition capabilities. "
"France is working hard to avoid becoming a digital colony of the US or China. Last month, both the French National Assembly and the French Army Ministry declared that their digital devices would stop using Google as their default search engines. Instead, they will use Qwant, a French and German search engine that prides itself for not tracking its users. "
A backdoor is a vulnerability by definition. When Politicians demand backdoors to encryption, they are not asking us to choose between security and privacy. They are asking us to choose no security: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-backdoor-is-a-security-risk
"You Gave Facebook Your Number For Security. They Used It For Ads."
"Add “a phone number I never gave Facebook for targeted advertising” to the list of deceptive and invasive ways Facebook makes money off your personal information. [...]the company has been using contact information that users explicitly provided for security purposes—or that users never provided at all—for targeted advertising. "
"Glyphosate – the most used pesticide ever – damages the good bacteria in honeybee guts, making them more prone to deadly infections"
"Facebook hacked – Attackers exploited a vulnerability in the “View As” feature that allowed them to steal Facebook access tokens of 50 Million Users."
Web pages are using your phone's sensors to spy you.
"...a web page can only access these sensors if we are browsing through it , and not if it is in the background. However, through the changes in the luminosity sensor and the movement sensor, it is possible to deduce the PIN that the user may be entering on the screen. In addition, they can know what parts of the screen they are viewing through algorithms."
"Targeting job ads by sex is unlawful under federal, state, and local civil rights laws. In a landmark US supreme court ruling in 1973, the court held that the government can forbid job advertising that discriminates based on sex."
"The U.S. government is trying to force Facebook Inc (FB.O) to break the encryption in its popular Messenger app so law enforcement may listen to a suspect’s voice conversations in a criminal probe, three people briefed on the case said, resurrecting the issue of whether companies can be compelled to alter their products to enable surveillance.

Using keepass with mono to integration of the user's desktop is not good, so this shortcut is meant to say "when you lock the screen of kde it will closes the open databases of keepass".
You can add the ctrl + L command to it by overwriting the default system.
Using this shortcut:
$ mono /usr/lib/keepass/KeePass.exe --lock-all && loginctl lock-session
