#mastoadmin #infosec

I just removed a user account that was created on #iocx for the purpose of being a C2 channel for a piece of malware.

If you have open registrations, I recommend to scan your accounts list for the following IP addresses:

Here is also the email address that was used by that account: tiagogamejardimpiedade02@gmail.com

So, we have actually blocked new registrations for users that is using gmail.com.
This is because, 99% of all spam accounts uses gmail.com
80% gmail.com signups is spam.

ALL the instances I'm trying are on Digital Ocean or Ovh

Shouldn't we be a bit more decentralized ?


Been thinking about moving infosec.exchange to the glitch.social fork of mastodon. Any feedback pro/con?

Linux elitism makes me sick. I'm tired of people screaming at me what I should be doing on my computer. Shouldn't the linux desktop be about freedom, not about basement people with super inflated egos narrowing your choices?

Please don't be a linux elitist. It's not healthy for the community and your social life.

Due to an increased amount of spam-signups - new accounts will recruite admin/moderator approval.

You can still invite your friends with your invite link ofcourse

I would never copy someone else's status word for word, certainly not just to see if they noticed

Does anyone have data on the #Fediverse's reach into #Ukraine or into #Russia?

Esp if there are good instances to support or to be sure we peer to?

Running an operation like @disroot not an easy feat - and it is certainly not free! Both from a financial perspective and time spent.

One of the most frustrating aspect of working from home, is that some of the colleagues does not know how to communicate.

Got some fun with my and build up a telegram bot to forward text to my meshtastics via serial interface. 😁

Got a report regarding one user today, the user was new and has never been reported before.

Apparently the admin of that instance silenced this one and wanted me to reach out when "I have dealt with the user" which I now have.

But I dont give a shit to reach out to that admin to get us "unsilenced" on that instance. We dont need admins and instances that silences and blocks after the first report lol.

So, I would most appreciate boosts on this:

I am looking for a collaborator on creating my company NekoIT. Funds for now are enough to start the service once it is finished, but not to pay an employee. To whoever has sales and/or marketing skills and want to get free courses in programming while getting 30% equity on the company, or remotely agree with this: git.nekoit.xyz/NekoIT/Manifest contact me here on mastodon or at ludovic (at) nekoit.xyz

This looks handy:

> Ventoy creates a bootable USB drive for ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files.
With ventoy, you just copy the image files to the USB drive and boot it. You can copy many iso files at a time and ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them.


We actually miss hosting a public matrix-server, so we are looking into it again lol,

I think I'll quit my job as a student programmer. Working from my student dorm is rough enough (basically working in my bed), but then also doing it on an operating system I hate for tooling I despise takes the cake.

Fuck Microsoft. Fuck Windows. Fuck Powers(hell). Fuck dotnet.
I have gazed into the abyss and the abyss has gazed back.

My co-workers were pretty ok though, hope they'll do fine.
