Hmm. This whole Google dance doesn’t necessarily sound so bad to me. I wonder if monument building is up next.

Like clockwork every year right after Christmas. Did I say “of-course, Germans”, did not:

The 36th Chaos Communication Congress (36C3) takes places in Leipzig, 27.-30.12.2019, and is the 2019 edition of the annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia organised by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) and volunteers.

Just finished listening to the (live) streaming of a talk by Will Scott:

What’s left for private messaging

Worth it, while at it you can try checking off Safe-properties too. When he takes a question from the audience you see his system actually slowing down just a tiny bit because he meticulously goes through all he seems to know about the subject.

Think of the children, … and the “habitual protesters”.

I just got the following e-mail from Poloniex. I wonder if they’ve been hacked.

A couple of hours ago we discovered that someone leaked a list of email addresses and passwords on Twitter, claiming the information could be used to log in to Poloniex accounts. While almost all of the email addresses listed do not belong to Poloniex accounts, we are forcing a password reset on any email addresses listed that do have an account with us, including yours.

EDIT: I had to change my password when I tried logging in using my own bookmark - not a link from the mail.

I didn’t get that email and I just logged in.

I don’t think they have been hacked. I think the leak has more to do with the whole KYC flop, because angry clients were flooding the Polo FB with complaints, and, needless to say, that FB account was completely fake and asking people for email addresses to their accounts (so the scammers can “look at their case”).

Its almost for sure a phishing attempt. I have recived no such email. Thing is I have an email specifically for between me and polo. You have likely exposed your email elsewhere.

Yep, no email from polo here.

Edit. Looks like someone pulled the same sh!t last February.

Me neither. Phishing attempt maybe?

Sasha said he literally had to change his password using his own bookmark; not any link included in the email. It sounds legit. And the email repost also claims they only required password change from the accounts whose emails were part of the leak.

He was correct to do this, but was there a link in the email too which he ignored?

That’s not the impression I got from what he said. I think there was no link (?)
