sooo....I've seen "Mad Max: Fury Road" last night. I expected nothing good, because already "Thunderdome" was horrible, and Mad Max without Mel Gibson? smelled a lot like "let's grab some big bucks by abusing the fame of the first 2 movies".

and I was totally right: "Fury road" IS absolute garbage. don't get me wrong, as standalone movie it wouldn't be THAT horrible (maybe 4/10 in my book), but advertising it as a Mad Max movie...what a joke.

I had a huge "um, what?" moment already after the silly pseudo-"Road Warrior" prelude, when Max stands besides his car. sooo....he went to one of the numerous "Mad Max car kit" shops which obviously exist in George "Greedy" Miller's dystopia and bought a new one? I mean, he must, because the car was blown into pieces in "Road Warrior".

but ok, logic doesn't mean much when all you are out for is the cash I guess.

the "new Max", after long years in the outback, also seems to suffer from severe psychological problems now, because his personality totally changed. in the prelude it is said that it's about "survival", but no, Max was never about that, he always was just running away from his demons of the past, and he also was not able to build relationships with other people anymore leave alone falling in love again after what happened in the first movie (remember how he didn't care about that blonde amazon hottie in "Road Warrior?).

but what happens? he falls in love, protects damsels in distress for no personal gain, fires out silly punchlines like a 80's action movie hero and he also fights like one now. of course his knee, which was blown with a shotgun by Bubba Zanetti in the first movie, and which was still the same years later in "Road Warrior" healed because of the healthy outback air in the meantime...I guess. and because of a lizard diet he also looks pretty chunky now, after all post-nuclear apokalypse days in the hot desert seem to be not bad for your health at all...good to know.

 

so yeah, as I said at the start, for a standalone movie I would give it a 4(maybe 5) out of 10, but for a "Mad Max" movie it is a total 0. George Miller should have called Kevin Costner instead and asked how much it is to call a movie "Reverse Waterworld", because that title would have fit SO much better.

and if Miller makes his threats true and REALLY comes out with 2 more movies (big glass of Star Wars anyone?) I will not bother anymore watching one of them. fuck you George Miller, go back to making kid's movies again.

DNR 2015 http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/46-dnr-2015 http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/46-dnr-2015

Somethings change, somethings will never change. Life is circumstance and how we react to it. Smarter people develop foresight and try to control what happens next. Either way, you have to be flexible and adapt to change quickly.

I know I have been busy else where, but that means I have come back with new things to share ; ) I am sure many of you will like discussing personal drones and building them.

Give me a while to catch up to the forum, I may pass over threads that are too old. If you have anything you want me to look over, bump it. I should also update the DNR's Suggested Reading thread soon.

I don't like the idea that I am not in control of my life. http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/45-i-dont-like-the-idea-that-i-am-not-in-control-of-my-life http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/45-i-dont-like-the-idea-that-i-am-not-in-control-of-my-life

 

Morpheus: [to Neo who is choosing the red pill] Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.


Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?


Neo: No.


Morpheus: Why not?


Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.


Morpheus: I know *exactly* what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?


Neo: The Matrix.


Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?


Neo: Yes.


Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.


Neo: What truth?


Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.


Morpheus: I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.


-The Matrix

 

I don't like the idea that I am not in control of my life.

It is not about laws or rules, it is about being lied to and not being able to make the right choices for your life. We woke up and realized that everyone is trying to sell us something, trying to get us to buy into their dreams. We brought it at first, we paid the high prices to peek at the dreams. We put it on credit, and we work because we owe.

The first part of being free is owning your own dreams. Live the life you aspire to, do not pay to watch someone else live for you.

The second part of being free is knowing. Your failures in life up to this point was not your fault. You were unable to make the right choices because you were denied access to the answers you needed. The answers exist. They do not want you to have the answers, they do not want you to choose. They want Fear, Uncertainty, and despair -because it makes people do nothing, it makes them fail, and gives right to others to manage your life for you.

Those who know are responsible to protect others who do not know. The next neo is waiting and searching for the answer, waiting for the next Morpheus...

Multiple Web2py Instances with uWSGI Emperor and NginX http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/44-multiple-web2py-instances-with-uwsgi-emperor-and-nginx http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/44-multiple-web2py-instances-with-uwsgi-emperor-and-nginx

 

I figured out how to run multiple instances of web2py. In case I ever wanted to offer hosting for this service. Here is how I did it. Step 1: Setup up Web2py NginX uWSGI (in emperor mode) using this setup script for ubuntu: https://raw.github.com/web2py/web2py/master/scripts/setup-web2py-nginx-uwsgi-ubuntu.sh This will pretty much do everything you need for the main server/hostname setup. To create separate instances of web2py we will repeat the steps as follows in /etc/nginx/sites-available you should have a file called web2py which looks close to this.

 

please see http://www.techshinobi.com/index.php/multiple-web2py-instances-with-uwsgi-emperor-and-nginx/ for the proper formatted version.

Thank you Maboroshi!

PyBass [Bass Audio API] on Android Trials http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/43-pybass-bass-audio-api-on-android-trials http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/43-pybass-bass-audio-api-on-android-trials

This is the Bass Audio Library, suggested by my friend Adam a while ago http://www.un4seen.com/. This is Pybass http://sourceforge.net/projects/pybass/ the ctypes implementation of Bass Audio I contributed in the past to various developments on the Pybass scripts such as VST implementation. This is my initial tests in working with PyBass on Android. I am using a rooted phone to copy over the libbass.so file to /data/data on the internal storage. Please be sure you download the bass library for Android. The only line you will need to change in your pybass.py file is the path to libbass.so. Keep in mind a shared object file will not execute from your sdcard it has to be on the internal storage. This has to do with Android security. The test python script I ran was:


from pybass import *

@SYNCPROC
def onEndPlay(handle, buffer, length, user):
    print("playing finished.")

if __name__ == "__main__":
    BASS_Init(1, 44100, 0, 0, 0)
    handle = BASS_StreamCreateFile(False, b'/sdcard/test.mp3', 0, 0, 0)
    BASS_ChannelSetSync(handle, BASS_SYNC_END, 0, onEndPlay, 0)
    play_handle(handle, False)
    BASS_Free()

I ran this from the sdcard using a shell script (see below) the shell script allows me to execute python from the adb shell terminal window standalone_python.sh


#! /system/bin/sh
PW=`pwd`
export EXTERNAL_STORAGE=/mnt/sdcard
export LANG=en
export PYTHONPATH=/mnt/sdcard/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/extras/python:
/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload:
/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python/lib/python2.6
export TEMP=/mnt/storage/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/extras/python/tmp
export PYTHON_EGG_CACHE=$TEMP
export PYTHONHOME=/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python/lib:
/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload:
/mnt/sdcard/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/extras/python
cd $PW
/data/data/com.googlecode.pythonforandroid/files/python/bin/python "$@"

the command was

sh standalone_python.sh test.py

Here is the result and yes there was audio playing off of my phone. Enjoy! Resources http://www.un4seen.com/ http://sourceforge.net/projects/pybass/ http://code.google.com/p/python-for-android/wiki/RunPythonFromShell http://code.google.com/p/python-for-android/

DNR 2014

 

Well I have been watching you while I was away. Work related, personal time and studies kept me away for almost 2 years. For all of my friends that were here, thanks for waiting, for all my new followers from the past 2 years - welcome to my home.

People reacted to the snowden news about PRISM like USA was some kind of demon spying on every person in the whole world as they go about their no-nothing lives. NSA gives two shits about how drunk you got last night, or who's sister you are fucking. Get over it. You are just a number, not history.

It was a loud reminder to those of us here, reading this - that not all hacker's dens are created equal. A social forum on facebook is not as nearly a good place to learn and meet 'real people'. Its a social network, at best you will meet people who hack social networks. They are good at googling for tools to DDoS or SQL dump, they think that being an activist using hacking tools makes them a hacker. I disagree.

New generation of neophytes, damn I am sad. You may never get a chance to build your own box, you'll never figure out how a memory card pops in, or what a PCI/AGP port is. Tablets, shit you type with your thumbs. If you want to learn hacking, learn where it began, and follow hands-on with the studies your fore-founders did. Google, cut and paste is not going to give you wisdom. Here at suck-o, you got enough old schoolers that will help you stay real to your roots.

OSint - the news has gotten so sensational, repackaged, and opinion seems to serve as knowledge - the news is really a social engineering tool. I plan to provide members here with real news and skills to collect their own real news.

DNR's Suggested Readings - in the Hacking/Wardriving forum will be continued - I have collected many hard to find, some now redacted, documents on tactics, tools, and real research on OSint/Gint, pen testing, hacking crimes and tactics. This is the only high level research library I have seen on the net - most get brought out by other security companies, some close and move on - so I hope you only find the docs here ; )

2014 - The year that will define who you are - prey or predator..

2600 - the dumbfuck collective http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/41-2600-the-dumbfuck-collective http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/41-2600-the-dumbfuck-collective 2600 - the dumbfuck collective

I had the great "pleasure" of wasting some time on an extremely silly and even more pointless group on FB: the 2600 one, so here is my judgement.

first of all, on Facebook? really? how much of a hacking mindset can you have when getting on your knees and sucking the smelly cock of FB TOS and therefore having to censor your oh-so-high-valued free speech on every single thread just to avoid getting your lame asses banned by one of those faceless corporations you all hate so much (and obviously can't stop talking about HOW MUCH you hate those evil evil eviiiiil corporate capitalists)? and no, please don't come up with silly arguments like "rocking the cardbox from the inside, that's why we use FB"...the truth is: none of you has the balls, money and skills to run a community website. and again, don't come up with silly arguments like "but 2600 has a website!", because: no, it hasn't. what is has is a ugly pile of 90's-looking crapcode that is all about wanking money out of people by selling your retarded zine. I could set up that site in Wordpress within 30 minutes with even more and up to date features. btw, one thing that REALLY made me laugh on this "site" was the announcement of a meeting at...now fasten your seatbelts: Burger King. holy shanizzlez...being on FB and meeting at Burger King...oh you subversive rebels!

 

next point, let's have a look at the topics on this valuable FB group (as valuable as a fart under a blanket I mean). what obviously moves the mind of the modern "hackers" (see that as placeholder term for now, I will define the average 2600 FB member later) nowadays is: 3D printing guns, Bradley Manning, and, of course, as biggest part, the Adrian Lamo show. concept of the Adrian Lamo show is to brag and brag and brag endlessly about yourself and how famous you are (10 cent for each of his threads that starts with "people often ask me..." and I would be Jon Lajoie rich) without actually having done ANYTHING valuable except maybe for a silly hack more than 10 years ago. I don't go into that "snitch" thing, because I don't give a rat's ass about the cult of Lamo OR Annoymuch.

 

aaand next: the users. oh my gawd. where am I supposed to start. let's hit this in a mathematical way, ok?

- females 15-20%, females that are NOT there for being Lamo groupies: 0.1% (of those 15-20%)

- people that can actually code (I am generous and would even count the ability to do "Hello World!" in Bash): 5%

- plain bullshitters: 95%

- people with a politically correct mindset (which is quite the exact opposite of the hacker's mindset because those people are locked inside their self-censored self-righteous thought ghetto and are not capable to think outside the box): 90%

- PC mindset people that actively want to indoctrinate and teach others because they feel superior: 70% (of the 90%). a great example is Zachary Drummond who provided some mindblowing...erm...facepalming I mean...insights into his biogas inflated ego by posting "my IQ is 165 but I work at Subway making sandwiches" on his FB wall. on his LinkedIn page he also shows off with his "MS Office skills"...wow..I wonder why NASA didn't call him yet. or the "Pirateparty" boy Raymond Johansen who thinks writing like a 13 year old 4chan addict with down syndrome is hacky and cyber-hip: IT knowledge on the other hand: nada.

 

I have to admit being a member of the 2600 FB group can cause some self-running dynamics because you think you are getting real feedback when posting something, but when you look at the quality of feedbacks (content or people) I prefer to talk to the underarm fungus of the next homeless guy I meet, I am sure it's way more interesting...and out of the box.

How to evade gmail and facebook phone verification http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/40-how-to-evade-gmail-and-facebook-phone-verification http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/40-how-to-evade-gmail-and-facebook-phone-verification

Well, no big blahblah, I come straight to the point.  You will have to set your location to USA when signing up, simply because the number you will provide to FB/gmail will be a US one.

 

  • call (206) 376-1000
  • when you have reached the "set up a greeeting message" part wait 2 seconds, then finish it (you need the time to enter the security code later)
  • enter the provided number in gmail/facebook
  • call your voicemail box after some minutes
  • the first time the verification number is announced the first 1-2 numbers are missing, but the 2nd time you will get it

 

After the verification you can use any kind of IP you like (through Tor for example), after too many IP changes you might have to repeat the procedure, so give your voicemail box a call once a week so the account is not deleted.

When Karma pays http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/39-when-karma-pays http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/39-when-karma-pays

Had the first of the computer lessons now for the older children up to 19 years old and have a perfect class of 12. The arena we have been using we got 30 of the children and payed them all to help clean it all up, We mopped it all and swept it all and taught the children about recycling.

When ya do good things karma does shine down on ya, but it has been one hard month. Opened a bank account for the funding which i will have the details for tomorrow and got our first donation off a French bloke who really liked what we are doing and couldnt believe it when he asked who was funding it and we told him no one, he gave us $20 which gave us a lift.

We have now got a small house rent free which was the biggest of our expenditures and all we have to pay towards is the electric water and internet. The bed cost me a months rent but now we have everything and this i can stay in anytime i am here, home sweet home.

The children are lovely and the locals treat me like im one of them, no more tourist prices now, its local prices for us and this just makes me want to stay longer and longer.

Extended my visa now for the second month so i can do this once more, need to keep going and hopefully get that 6 month visa stamped if we can find a sponsor. Crowd funding will be launched soon, it will cost £26,000 to build a school on the and we have and it ill have 3 floors, a farm, a sports area, a natural compost toilet and free electricity.

If someone asked me whats my dream, all i can say is im living it :)

Children dont half wear you out, wish Saturday was a day off for tomorrow but here school is every day....except for Monday lol, well its no good trying to teach english for one day a week.

The community is hearing lots about what we are doing here and many people are coming just to look and then the word is spreading quicker and quicker. The more that people hear we are doing this for free the more children are turning up. We started with 12 children 3 days ago and tomorrow we are now looking at around 40 that will be coming tomorrow and Sunday.

With help and support i will be continuing this for one year then il be looking at coming to England for a holiday...... sounds crazy lol.

These children are making so much progress so fast it goes to show, all they needed was a chance. I am thankful that i got chances in my life which i took, now its good to repay the favor and give them to chances to those who otherwise would never be given it, a chance to LIVE!!!

Just another day in Bali? http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/37-just-another-day-in-bali? http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/37-just-another-day-in-bali?

Well its 8:50am and i have just woke up, went to bed at 1am and this is the longest I have slept since i got here.Did a 3 hour class yesterday with 12 children and having lots of fun while teaching is very satisfying in deed. Class starts at 2pm today again and really looking forward to it. 

After school I was invited to a babys 3 month ceremony, these people are Hindu and it is their equivalent to our christening / baptism but here the ceremony lasts 4 days, 3 days for the preparation then the last day is the main event, that is today and il be joining them again after class has finished. Its a honor to be invited to these events it really is.

After this i was invited to where one of the local bands were playing and invited to sit and chat with them when finished. They were all asking me plenty of questions and asking why i come to teach children for free when it costs me to do these lessons daily. I explain to them that my gratification comes from making these children happy and knowing that I am giving something back to these communities which is only going to make them stronger. I told them that if i was offered a million for doing a job that it would never give me as much satisfaction as what i am doing now for free.

The guys then asked me what i would like to gain for myself while being in Bali.... the only thing i would like for myself is to maybe learn to meditate properly and maybe learn Yoga. They told me that i was already doing a form of the highest yoga you could do, giving love to these children, I listened intently and explained what i thought yoga was, they told me i may have a lot to learn about myself but i definitely am practicing one of the highest forms possible.

Both these guys are a little younger than myself and what i saw next was amazing if not unbelievable unless you saw this with your own eyes. They asked me what i knew about energy etc and we had a little discussion and they both told me about their own energy which although similar was not the same.

One of them asked for a coin, not one they had but one that they had not touched. The coin was metal and i checked the coin and this was definitely not a trick of the mind. He proceeded to meditate with the coin in his hand and seemed to transfer his energy to the coin before placing it on the table in front of me, They then told me to pick up the coin, the coin was HOT. On the table was little bits of ash from the coin, this was explainable.

The other person then took hold of my wrist and showed me how he can transfer energy and told me trust him. He took a lit cigarette and held it above his own arm while holding my wrist. Within a few seconds I had to withdraw my hand fast as the heat was so unbearable that i had to take some water and pour it over my wrist. I had 3 marks on my wrist from the burn which he said do not worry they will be gone soon, no doubt i have woken this morning with not a sign of anything at all. 

These people have offered me free lessons in meditation and to teach me properly and to teach me for free in exchange for what i am trying to do here. To say i am gobsmacked is an understatement. 

When i got back to my place of residence i was talking to the locals about the nights events when i learned that they had once visited a good man who was bed ridden and maybe had a day to live, these people sat with this man for over 24 hours in complete silence, although no one knows exactly what happened that night this man still lives 2 years later. 

The locals call these people Holy men, they are probably 2 of the most sincere and humble people i have ever met in my life. 

My life is changing daily and so much for the better, words cannot explain what is happening to me right now but emotional is definitely one of them.

Thank you world for sending these gifts of life to guide me through the light.

When a man/womans work is never done http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/34-when-a-man-womans-work-is-never-done http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/34-when-a-man-womans-work-is-never-done

So its 16.10 here now and its tea time so having 2 hrs rest now. Its been 100 mile an hour since i landed in Lovina, got some video footage today at the rice fields while the crop was being harvested. I go back later to help again as we now plough the fields and sow the seeds all in the same day, not what your thinking though, no tractors here, we plough the fields with pieces of wood with nails in, the spades are pieces of wood that we will be using to make the drainage system and the seeding is all done by hand too.If thats not hard enough its 42 degrees and its scorching. 

Once i have finished there i will be working on the website forPassing Clouds II who kindly asked me to do the work as im relying on bits of work coming in to help support me while i am here. 

Already had a meeting with the local bank manager who helps the community in as many ways as he can already and will be back again on Tuesday to open an account for peoples donations which will help provide pens, pencils etc for the children. As well as already helping set up 2 schools which we start here on wednesday they have a mainstream school which runs in the morning provided by the government but still this is only very basic, and have been invited there to discuss our program and see if we can start implementing it there too as well as the places where there are no schools. 

Its just so amazing the help we can provide but this is no walk in the park by all means, me an Miles Hingston are slogging our guts out here with very little sleep, we knew we could get this to work, we had faith and we believed.....in ourselves. 

Soon the people of Bali will be empowered enough themselves with a good education plan and people to go with it to make Bali Balinese again, Western influence only comes to rape what these people have and its making a mockery of mankind. 

Thanks everyone for making me write about this, Although doing it makes me part of what is happening, the writing about it really drills it home what these people deal with on a daily basis :) 

Peace all

Living the simple life is not always so simple http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/33-living-the-simple-life-is-not-always-so-simple http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/33-living-the-simple-life-is-not-always-so-simple

When you come to a country like Bali you have to live and work with the locals to get a better understanding of their lives. Its Saturday and there is always so much to do. At 6am this morning i was at the rice fields for sunrise to make sure we keep the birds away from the rice fields,its harvest day today so we go back around noon and we get to work.

After We had finished at the rice fields this morning around 8am i went with the locals and taught them how to sharpen and keep sharpen the blades and knives they use for farming and fishing, cooking etc. They were really pleased how sharp i got the knives and once i had shown them i got them to do it while i watched and guided. 

In a few mins i head back to the school for 2 hrs to help a little more there before the harvest. After all this il be working on a few of my own things and then will take it easy for the evening. 

I will be out again at 6am with the locals going fishing, not with nets or fishing rods but the traditional Balinese way. 

After 2 weeks in Lovina i feel like part of the village already and not a tourist, these people really know how to make you feel at home and welcome, they may lead simple lives but their heart is in the right place. Its good to be able to come and help these people and is one of the most satisfying things i have ever done, thank you world!!

Helping mentor-cate the children of the world http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/32-sustainable-schools-and-trade-networks http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/32-sustainable-schools-and-trade-networks

Ok so i havent been as active with my blog as i would have liked to have been so now is the time to change all that. Here is a little bit about me and what has changed over the last 12 months and will now also keep this blog up to date with what i am doing and the progress that we make along the way.... hope you all will follow and hopefully everyone will do something someday that may make a difference to others.

Peace out all.

For those who are wondering what the hell i am doing at the moment i will explain.

 

12 months ago i decided i had enough of people and the system and no longer wanted to be a part of it, i changed the way i wanted to live and decided i was no longer going to work for money but for donations of food and shelter etc. I have lived and worked like this now for 12 months and i am loving how things are going, its not always easy but like anything you take the rough with the smooth.

 

One of the things i started doing a while ago was trying to help set up community projects with people from my home town this gave me the foundations of what i wanted to do in life. I decided that i wanted to help children as this has always been one of my desires.

 

We have pulled together with a few of us that have been working on a few different projects on sustainable living and education. We have an accelerated learning program where we take children that speak no english to learning english it 2 days and will be qualified in 5 days..... hard to believe? well we are already doing it.

 

We will not only use the technique for english but for all other subjects too.

 

I am now with 5 friends and others are joining us in Bali, Indonesia where we can now get this implemented.

 

So how did i get here if i work for no money? Well i have been working for a doctor for a while with a cancer help centre for free and he agreed to fund the flight. He gave me enough money to last a week which is what i asked for, this is nearly run out and was just enough for food, i sleep where i can and have no problem living with nothing as long as we get to implement the system. The only funding we are looking for is for pens, books, and everything else that we need to get this moving at a fast pace.

 

With our man Floody involved we may just be looking at one computer per child in all of these schools too.

Here they have to pay for education and pens etc are expensive, we have had football strips donated and there are plenty more from the same place to be sent over so the help we are getting is unbelievable.

 

We have invites to Nepal, Africa and other countries to implement this too, will have some more info and websites running next couple of days for them who want to follow our progress.

 

To add to all of this we have also just been asked to do a TED Talk too, life is crazy, life is good.

 

Thanks everyone :)

C-T

fetlife.com - the privacy disaster, or: security through lying. http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/31-fetlifecom-the-privacy-disaster-or-security-through-lying http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/31-fetlifecom-the-privacy-disaster-or-security-through-lying

fetlife.com - They claim to be a "safe haven" and even the "facebook for fetishists".

A few weeks ago I had to become member of that site to gather info about a specific user, that user deactivated his/her account after being confronted so I had to take a closer look at the site in order to see how I can retrieve info. And ok, I admit it was also fun to elaborate how bad the site is actually managed and designed (in a technical sense).

 

So, let's begin, first the maybe most severe violation of user rights:

--All your base are belong to us---

As fetlife.com user you can upload pics and videos of you washing your car, how you're knitting a scarf, or how you brutally murder your 90 year old neighbor with a soldering iron...the content is not reviewed. But wait, to view the videos of others you have to pay a monthly fee. Yes, you heard right, they demand money for providing material that is not theirs and share nothing of the gain. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

But ok, many people love to be ripped off, not my problem. But what I see as a big problem is that a user seems to give away any form of ownership for the uploaded material to fetlife without being told. I had a pretty ridiculous email convo with one of the "caretakers" (you can say what you want about the fetlife owners, but they seem to have a nice sense for sarcasm by calling them "caretakers", imo "not-a-shit-givers" would fit much better):

 

  • First I created a profile, uploaded a pic and deleted the pic again. It was gone from the profile but not from their CDN server. After a day the pic was still there, so I asked for an explanation about this.
  • Their reply: "pics are deleted after max. 48 hours, if not please let us know". Erm, what? What kind of answer is that? Either the pics are gone after "max. 48 hours" or not, smelled really fishy for me.
  • Ok, and as expected: 48 hours later the pic is still there. Another mail was send about this issue. answer: none.
  • Aaaand another email was sent by me 1 day later (pic of course still online), this time a little more harsh, reminding them about copyright violation, right of publicity, etc.
  • Got a reply this time: "it is still there because you access it, the timer is set back again every time". Ok, sounded kinda logic, just one problem: The pics are hotlinkable. So if a user deletes his profile but the pic is shown on another page (without permission of course) it would make the pic stay online. Is it just me or is this plain stupid? Anyway, I wanted to check out if they told the truth, so I uploaded another pic again, deleted it, waited 5 days (!) and, well, you guessed it: still there.
  • Sent another email about this, no reply anymore.

 

When reading the "terms of use" I stumbled over a strange paragraph:

"Woldwide 30 day license to distribute, reproduce and transmit"? And erm..."The license shall terminate 30 days after you remove your content"?

Ooook....forget that legal jibberish and name it: All your base are belong to us. Period. Geez. Was it that hard?

But hmm, in a not-so-hidden part (you know, one a user might really read) they show off with their privacy awesomeness:

"Information you provide us

Content: Anything posted on your profile can be removed at any time... it is your profile after all."

Sounds a little different, more "safe haven" like, than it actually is stated in the terms of use, right?

 

---We are secure, no, really!---

This one made me really laugh:

"Steps we take to protect your information

  • We encrypt your password
  • We use SSL to log in
  • We protect you from XSS vulnerabilities"

 

  • W00t! Encrypted passwords! Amazing what is possible today, isn't it? I bet my kinky fetish ass it's MD5, maybe salted. Just a little snack for my rainbow tables or mr. cats' GPU cracker. Ok, I think I take my W00t! back again.
  • SSL! Wow! Like banks? Bite my shiny metal ass, I'm so impressed. Well, ok, after a MITM attack maybe not that impressed anymore. Stop selling flawed standards as "security", geez.
  • No XSS! Really! But if you find one let us know. Duh. What about setting up a nice cookie-grabbing JS script on another server and use tinyurl links? Again: duh.

 

But hey, at least we use the latest techniques to protect the pics on the profiles!

Quiet you. Disabling the rightclick context via JS is not just really 90's it was already ridiculous back then.

But no need to deactivate JS, the direct link to the CDN can of course also be found in the source anyway.

 

Another "really secure" thing are their picture URLs. Want the big version of a pic but you can only see a thumbnail? No problem. Simply open the thumbnail, replace _60.jpg with _720.jpg. Done.

 

---Damn, ok, you're right, that site sucks! I will close my account!---

Not so fast young padavan. There is a 1 week waiting period. But hey, your account is deactivated instantly, all safe until it's deleted (ok, except for the pics and vids, but we own them now anyway).

Hm, ok, sorry, once again: bullshit. When you deactivate your account on a website, what do you expect? "It's not accessible anymore", right? Well, not on faillife..erm..sorry...fetlife.

When the account is deactivated there it still appears in the search results, and the comments you made (or others made about your saucy pics, shown on their profiles) stay online

 

So, you can simply copy the user profile URL from a comment (for example), then add one of the profile sub-pages, like /friends, and voila: Access to the "deactivated" profile.

 

---FFS! I will post this on their site, then they will fix it! HA!---

Dream on n00b. I have reported those issues and got banned for it. Funny thing is that the ones that are actually responsible for the site can not be reached on the site...well, ok, that's what they say (email the "caretakers"!), but when a user was pretty pissed off because he payed money and wasn't able to view the vids (paying money for porn, really?) one of the owners suddenly showed up. Weird huh? But if it's not about money the site is run by the users. Really, I am not kidding: by the users. If you are REALLY bored you can troll the site all day and not get banned until enough pissed off users sent complaint mails about you. New account: 10 seconds, no email validation.

 

---Conclusion---

Yarr!! Safe haven? Looks more like Pearl Harbor to me.

 

---A private note---

Just because you wear leather pants, like to stick needles through a girls skin, or call yourself something like "master" you are not superior to others, quit taking yourself that serious people, else you will only be good for laughs.

It is also no "lifestyle" to swing a whip and to be a member on "facebook for fetishists". May I quote Miss Jen: "I go to work for a living, that's my lifestyle." Amen.

Other ways to think http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/30-ohms-law http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/30-ohms-law

Other ways to think

Ohms law:

A current traveling in a conductor whose impedance is greater than zero, will produce a potential across it.

 

Grounding:

The circuits power supply ground will be closest to 0v. 0V is in fact only a common point that all other points can referenced from.

June 25th 2011

Today I did some rudimentary programming and circuit testing for the security mode of my rover. In the video you can see the various frequencies that the alarm will modulate within. It’s running with 5volts to keep the decibels down. The final version will be much louder in fact ear piercing I am sure. Circuit board is still being delayed because I can’t make up my mind on various details. A peek at the schematic you say…

inoculate it with code http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/28-sick-lab http://www.suck-o.com/index.php/blogs/item/28-sick-lab

 inocluate code

Performing some crude test tonight. Pan, tilt, Battery, and power management were completed.
The pan and tilt was a essential test to extract the “range of mobility”. The sensor deck needs to read analogous data, if that is that the correct word to use in this setting. And in doing so it must track without hitting the deck lid. I will attempt to move the base of the robot as the sensor deck approaches these outer limits.
Battery and power management works flawlessly, nothing went boom! That said and without out getting excessively technical (the ambient is working its subtle yet effective magic) I am pleased with the results so far.
Design update: engineering a circuit to monitor battery levels. Not critical for the robot but may become valuable when I inoculate it with code, bringing it to life…
