00:58:56 pete_dushenski: e-mail from private internet access : ""Dear Valued Customer, On November 17, we were privately notified of an IP address leak vulnerability affecting the port forwarding feature of our service. Essentially, anyone connecting to a forwarded port on any of our VPN gateways could have their real IP address leaked to an attacker specifically targeting a PIA user."

00:59:44 pete_dushenski: " The vulnerability relies on the fact that a direct route exists between the VPN client and server. If the client accesses a forwarded port on the VPN server that is maliciously set up by an attacker, the client will use the direct route using the user's default route, bypassing the VPN entirely."

01:01:42 pete_dushenski: "Protecting your privacy is our top priority and although exploiting this vulnerability is difficult and requires an attacker to specifically target you, we feel like we let you down with our initial response. Please accept our apologies, we are sorry."

22:54:50 mircea_popescu: he allows them to parasitize.

22:57:39 mircea_popescu: "According to the SEC?s civil complaint, Homero Joshua Garza and his companies, GAW Miners and ZenMiner, sold more than 10,000 "investment contracts representing shares in the profits they claimed would be generated from using their purported computing power to ?mine? for virtual currency.""

22:57:42 mircea_popescu: aka, he sold 10k shares.

22:58:56 BingoBoingo: ascii_field: His crumbs largely consist of travel he could not otherwise undertake as miser to said "hackathons" it seems

23:00:19 ascii_field: BingoBoingo: if this is really a worthy price to him for selling soul - he oughta hurry up and eat his nagant

23:00:21 jurov: yup kakobrekla

23:00:38 BingoBoingo: ascii_field: Are Canadians allowed to have Nagants?

23:00:46 ascii_field: let's ask pete_dushenski ?

23:01:11 pete_dushenski: "Zuckerberg, 31, and Chan said they plan to give away 99 percent of their Facebook shares over their lifetimes to advance the initiative, which was formed as a limited liability company controlled by the two. It will begin by focusing on personalized learning, curing disease, Internet connectivity and community building." << hurry! quick like bunnies! while the shares are still worth even a dollar a piece! must! d0n4

23:01:17 mircea_popescu: ascii_field is yours ?

23:01:27 ascii_field: is my which

23:01:31 pete_dushenski: ascii_field: BingoBoingo good q. lemme research.

23:01:36 mircea_popescu: is THIS a worthy price for you to sell you soul.

23:02:29 pete_dushenski: ascii_field: BingoBoingo looks like yes to nagant.

23:02:44 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: what's the 'blue book' value of a soul with my mileage, anyway

23:03:13 pete_dushenski: pretty sure shurikens are illegal here, but no reason for nagant not to be, i guess.

23:03:45 ascii_field: pete_dushenski: 'nagant' in question is a 7-shot revolver, circa 1890s

23:03:49 pete_dushenski: iirc nunchaku are also illegal here.

23:04:05 jurov: as for eyebleeding hacks news, naive tx deallocation from bitcoind mempool indeed has little effect on RSS due to fragmentation. currently retrying with "libumem"...

23:04:16 jurov: but in the end it's really got to be rewritten with fixed arrays.

23:04:26 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski the truth behind that lol is that none of these schmucks, ie, "smart kids that made it", nor those other schmucks, ie inheritors that obama convocated to tell them how he's gonna spend their money, actually have what it takes.

23:04:37 mircea_popescu: they're the pointlessly rich, they have absolutely nothing to say to the world,

23:04:43 ascii_field: jurov: seems like you have replicated my experiment with same conclusion ?

23:04:45 mircea_popescu: and so a lectern's the last thing they could use.

23:06:01 ascii_field: jurov: and also this is imho an important result, and you really oughta post it to ml

23:06:01 jurov: ascii_field: yes, except you did not write about the details

23:06:23 pete_dushenski: ascii_field: 7-shot eh. how... unorthodox. aren't most 6 ?
