Encryption has greatly enhanced privacy and security in the past few years. But in 2019, law enforcement officials in the US, UK, and Australia launched an all-out attack on encrypted messaging, to users鈥 detriment.

People I admire: Scatman John.

His birth name is John Paul Larkin.

Did you know he suffered from a severe stutter? Before singing, he hid behind pianos because he was afraid to talk to others.

In 1995, at age 53, he became a worlwide star with his hit "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)". He passed away at age 57, merely four years after becoming incredibly famous.

This looks neat! A visual, browser-based frontend to GDB

Should serve as a gentle introduction to debuggers for beginners. Will check it out later tomorrow.

Quit my first, very exploitative PhD position. Felt great afterwards and the free time gave me the chance to dive into generative art. I found my passion and now have a new PhD position in that field.

Plundervolt 鈥 the latest security vulnerability in Intel CPUs:

鈥 Paper: (PDF file)
鈥 Plundervolt exploits privileged software interfaces that are used to adjust frequency and voltage of CPUs.
鈥 They corrupted the integrity of Intel SGX by controlling the voltage when executing enclave computations.
鈥 SGX cannot protect against Plundervolt.

Hey interesting tool. I haven't came across it before, I mean I typically figure this stuff out manually...

Malicious Python libraries stealing OpenPGP and SSH keys:

鈥 Look for python3-dateutil, and jeIlyfish.
鈥 Both modules try to exfiltrate SSH/OpenPGP keys and send them to an IP address.
鈥 This is the third time the PyPI team intervenes to remove typo-squatted malicious Python libraries from the official repository.

on and on...

Sooo many other great netizens... The instant I post this I will regret many I didn't list.

Love language and compiler design? So do I!

I'm designing my own programming language as my Computer Science and Engineering Bachelor thesis! Super, super excited.

I present you with... The XYZ language

Ideas, suggestions, and constructive criticism are welcome.

My blog is now CDN free, and thanks to the use of aggressive local and server caching, it should feel just as fast as it was before!

I liked this article on the failures of the Boeing 737 Max. Very well written and detailed technical and administrative explanations on what went wrong.
