“Protecting Your Privacy With a Virtual Machine While Using Zoom” by @dngray is live and explores all sorts of privacy flaws with the communications software businesses seem to love! Read more on the blog:

Zoom's encryption has some major flaws, is "not suited for secrets", and Zoom has servers in China generating meeting encryption keys for users in other countries, Citizen Lab researchers discover (by me)

Looking further, if you click on one of the links below, like the security link, it will bring to you to the official github security page.

Then, if you fill in anything for a name and password, like shown below, it will just forward you to githubs own homepage (were you can notice that your still not logged in)

Sure "github", ill click on your link, this is obviously not a phishing attempt /s

@micahflee question, have you ever considered to add a functionality to Onionshare where you can just paste the link into their own onion share, and let it download the file on its own, so people dont have download and open the link in tor browser?

If you want to share a file with a friend or colleague, you don't have to trust a third party service. You can use OnionShare.

The newest version even lets you publish static websites as onion services. #onionizetheweb

The work on opening up the privacytools organizations continues, we are now busy creating a draft for sub teams. These will be focus groups meant to improve specific aspects of out project and community. It will make use able to easily coordinate other members as part of the Core-team, and lets us do proper rights management as well. (For example, the Artwork Sub-team does not need moderation rights on our subreddit)

Have a look!

P.S. keep in mind, this is a draft.

I (Dan Arel) - work in the health care industry so if I have been MIA the last few weeks, it's because my day job has kept me buried with all that's happening with COVID-19.

Just know, the site is up, active, and we care deeply about your privacy still!

“Tech rights” can’t even figure out how to use an SSL certificate. But sure, pretend he’s a news source for privacy.

⚠️ PSA to all Germans ⚠️

Starting tomorrow, Telekom and Telefonica will hand over your phone's movement data to the government and other authorities.

It is opt-out, not opt-in!

Deactivate ASAP.

While everybody is talking about #COVID19, US Congress was sneaking a bill through aimed at destroying end-to-end encryption. #earnit #Fight4Privacy

Our prime minister just addressed the nation about the coronacrisis. These are some weird times i tell ya.

Say, @micahflee has the intercept ever considered running an .onion mirror of their website? (Or does it already have one that i am unaware of?)

We've made some changes to the way we present Tor exit lists. The new system is up and running and behaves closer to a typical DNS-based list service, and so it may be easier to integrate without requiring custom code implementation.

And here we go: A little article about federated ecosystems like the :fediverse: #Fediverse and :matrix: #Matrix. And guess who is missing out on it? #Fedora! I want to change that and it would be great if you could help. Therefore I ask:

:fedora: Fedora, where are you?

Help us to get Fedora on board with all these awesome, new technologies we use every day already. :blobfoxwink:
