adventures with keepass

  1. using cubby to sync the kdbx

  2. using the built-in sync with owncloud webdav – syncs everytime the db is saved.

  3. using bittorrent sync to sync kdbx with android phone(not exaxtly sure why i want keepass on phone but nevermind)

  4. using keepasshttp+chromeipass on chrome

  5. using keefox on ff – issue: auto-submit on some(all?) js forms is very bad..i think it submits an empty form. so sites like the nexus forums keep giving me bad login pages. will disable auto submit to see how. nexus forums login just fine in chrome with keepasshttp+chromeipass. not a keepass problem.

For iOS you can while the app is in the foreground, for Android you can all the time, for Firefox or Chrome OS . . . nope, they are explicitly designed to be clients to something else. – https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6622328

on lastpass

from hn :


Did any of you actually expect that you could share an account (a username and password) without one party knowing a piece of the information?

Most technical users would not believe this. But here’s the problem. This is what LastPass says when sharing the password:

password will remain a secret

So it is rational to believe that the majority of users will believe (since they are told this by LastPass) that the password will remain a secret.

And this misses the most important issue. What other claims are LastPass asserting that are easily falsified?


.

it has held up under scrutiny from various infosec professionals (you can find some blog posts from nova hacKer’s)

Thanks for the additional information. I was honestly incredulous that any security professional would recommend LastPass for important things like bank credentials so I did some Googling specifically for the one you mentioned:
https://www.novainfosec.com/2011/11/15/new-multifactor-authe

Although I probably wouldn’t store high value passwords using an online service like this, LastPass provides an simple way to use different strong passwords for every site you need to authenticate to.

This is exactly how I think about it. Online forums? Sure, LastPass is probably great. Online banking? No. Brokerages? No. Web-based email? No.

a future that we didn’t sign up for



They may have the money, but we have the tools of technology.



But I’m also frustrated. We seemed to have been coerced into working for a future that we didn’t sign up for. But hopefully, as anger amongst my generation grows at the world that has been handed to us, maybe more of us will realise that they may have the money, but we have the tools of technology.

the story of the Uber app


http://thegreatdiscontent.com/elle-luna


 


Oh, I forgot to mention that I had a three week gig with Uberbefore I joined the Mailbox team—this is where things get crazy! So I was using Uber all the time in San Francisco, even though I hated the design. And then I went to the Crunchies awards ceremony and at a post-ceremony event, where I was in a ball gown, I saw the CEO of Uber, Travis Kalanick, sitting at the bar. I was three whiskeys deep at this point and I walked up to him and said, “I use Uber all the time and I absolutely hate the app. I think you should bring me in to fix it.” He replied, “Oh, yeah? What are the three things you’d fix about it?” I said, “I’d redo the logo, redo the entire app, and change the rating system.” I think there was something about being in a dress that empowered me to say such things (laughing). And do you know what he said? He said, “Be at the Uber office at 9am on Monday.” I told him I couldn’t do it alone and he said he’d have a team for me.


I thought the offer was bogus, but I went to Uber’s office on Monday at 9am, laughing to myself, and Travis led me back to a project room with two other designers—they were from outside of Uber and he had flown them in from New York!That is the magic of CEOs who get shit done. We took on the Uber app and redesigned it in three weeks. In fact, one of the guys he flew in from New York, Shalin Amin, ended up staying on full-time. The app is gorgeous and last night it won the Fast Company 2013 Innovation By Design Awards for the transportation category, beating out Mars Rover and Tesla. They’re doing some good stuff at Uber.

shit i agree with


 


from http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=139892


 


I registered just so I could reply to this, danielmak.  Though I’m not a Mac user, I hope it’s of some help:

Look for an installed program/process called SearchProtect.

I just got the same thing after updating, and -very sneaky- I was presented with additional steps that hadn’t been shown during previous updates, and I clicked through, only seeing “Accept this offer” at the last second as I clicked it.

Uninstall that useless piece of crap, then your browser settings changes will stay in-place.  After that, I might also recommend that you do what I did, and remove the application that had the temerity to introduce such underhanded software to your machine in the first place.


—-To uTorrent itself:

I trusted you, uTorrent.  You were a regular standby app on my systems because you did the job, and did it well.  I counted you alongside tools like Winamp or Notepad++ as “must-haves” during any new installation.  I put up with the “app” nonsense when it was added, and even accepted the addition of the ad bar as a necessarily evil.  At least it was all unobtrusive enough, and safe to ignore if I didn’t want it.


Now, you’re partnering with a “search company” (HA!) that has resorted to underhanded shady tactics to boost their usage numbers.  I never used Yahoo because I don’t need a “content provider” for my web searches.  Yahoo is floundering so hard because, just like AOL, they sat back on their collective butts, content with the number of legacy users they managed to gather back in their heyday, instead of trying to keep with the times and make themselves attractive to new users.  Looks like they’ve realized how far back they’ve managed to slide, and are willing to resort to any means to make themselves look better to potential buyers.


Meanwhile, uTorrent has resorted to trickery, relying on their users’ trust and acquired expectations/habits to sneak this stupid hijacker past them during an “update”.  It took me just a few minutes to figure out why I couldn’t get my homepage settings to stick, but once I did, I knew EXACTLY who had introduced this malware (and make no mistake, that is EXACTLY what it is) to my machine. Yes, I should have been more aware when the installer threw a full page of text at me (the “agreement”), but it was late and I simply wasn’t expecting this changed behavior from such a trusted program.


So, like so many other companies before it, uTorrent has apparently decided that it’s time to start foisting this crap off onto their loyal users.  Thing is, you don’t have a captive audience here.  You’re not the only fish in the sea, and I can very easily adapt to another program that does the same job, but doesn’t treat its users like delicious marketing numbers to be manipulated and sold.


Rest assured: the people who will be most offended by this behavior are the people who supported your efforts from the very beginning.  The feeling of betrayal is a lot stronger with folks like us, and the reaction will be just as strong as it is quick.


Now, uTorrent is no longer a mainstay of my regular apps, and will not be recommended by name to the many people I talk to in a support capacity every day, as I had been for a few years now.  I suppose I can at least thank you, though, for confirming I was doing the right thing by steering users away from Yahoo, which has apparently decided any tactic is fair game where boosting their numbers is concerned.


Enjoy whatever pennies you got out of my accidental click.  They will be the last you see coming from my direction.

This is a browser built on Chromium. Where is its source code? Is this a closed-source wrapper around Chromium?Later: Answer: Yes. https://twitter.com/jeremiahg/status/392335814048247808

I am doing a double-take as well.It seems like closed-source is antithesis to “designed for the every day person who really values their online security and privacy.”

I think the key word there is ‘every day person’, which for most non-technical people means that they trust someone has looked after the problem, and may actually feel safer by paying someone to do so.reply

Oh there’s no problem paying somebody to do a job. But somehow you’ll need to be able to check that the job is done. Or at least read the opinion of somebody who has no stake in the matter to attest to the job being done.So “the job” here involving making a browser not do things, which you can’t see. How often pray tell do you pay somebody to perform a job you can’t verify the outcome of, but take him by his word that he did it?

If I got an email from george@avoid416scam.com claiming to protect my bank account from 416 scams for free if I give him access to my bank account, I’d be suspicious.Instead I got a website from whitehatsec.com claiming to provide me a more secure web browser for free, claiming it’s perfectly safe to put in my bank account info into it.

How does this make any sense?” As the adage goes, “If you’re not paying for something, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.” Browsers are no different,



WhiteHat Security has no interest or stake in the online advertising industry, so we can offer a browser free of ulterior motives. What you see is what you get. We aren’t interested in tracking you or your browsing history, or in letting anyone else have that information either.”

“And yet not a single browser vendor offers ad blocking, instead relying on optional third-party plugins, because this breaks their business model and how they make money.”.I’m actually happy when browsers keep their core features as lean as possible and instead do the work that enable plugin creators to create functionality. More true for ad-blocking, where you want the plugin to be updated more often than the browser itself (e.g., for newer lists, new techniques for detecting ads).

Adblock plugins slurp down new lists without updating the plugin code itself. Newer techniques, sure, but I don’t think ABP’s release cycle is substantially faster than Firefox’s.reply

It could still make sense to ship an ad blocking plugin with the browser distribution.reply

I find it incredible that someone would publish a web browser claiming to be safer:a) without publishing the source code, and


b) acting surprised when people don’t trust it.

Never heard of this company before, not sure what to think of their blog post announcing the availability of this browser. If I’m not mistaken, one can pretty much configure any browser to do what they have identified done in their browser, unless there’s more.reply

Noticed the same thing.I hope they’re more careful with their software design and monetization plan than they were with that announcement. And at some point they should probably address that it’s still an advertisement–for their services.

I wonder how diligently updates will be handled. Do the authors have access to all the restricted/confidential security chromium bug reports, and will they be able to push out updated binaries the same second chrome does? Otherwise this could quickly end up leaving users visibly exposed to otherwise-well-known future vulns.reply
