so I've inherited my parent's ancient dell inspiron 350s. its really not doing me any good what-so-ever, and i want to get as much use out of it as i can. so far, ive just wiped it clean, and installed YUMI on my external HDD so i can use a decent browser on mint. other than that, i havent installed any of my most used programs, or even changed the wallpaper.

basically, what i want to know is what i should do to get the max use out of this computer. should i be rid of vista, and just run linux on it? should i keep dual booting, so i can play the few games i do play on it? im ignorant to technology this old, ive only owned anything with 7 and up. pls halp.

That's actually what I'm doing with it now (I actually wrote this a while ago on /g/, and got a similar responce). I'm thinking that's the best I can do for now. I have installed VLC on vista, and just play my media through my external. I was just hoping I could do something more. I really just wish I could play minecraft, lol.

Dual booting Windows for games and Linux for everything else is the way to go.

I would simply install win 7 pro on it to start. This will work correctly. The comp is not ancient in any way.

Ok, right click 'computer,' scroll down. Look, is it x32 or x64bit in vista?.

Let s just assume it has 3 gigs of ram installed and is x64 bit, install 64 bit windows.

Get English x86: X17-59183.iso Burn to dvd.

figure out if it is a 64 bit processor or not to start.

no one really knows how cyberwarfare will play out because it's never actually happened (except maybe in simulations in secret DARPA, russian, or chinese labs)

what I'm wondering is what if instead of a total blackout the internet turns into an unreliable network, kind of like utilities in a third world country. some days on, some days off. cuts at random hours of day or night for unknown durations. brownouts and surges all the time.

it wouldn't be unwise of western governments to create redundant networks, separate from and non-reliant on the current internet infrastructure

P.S: I've noticed google on and off a lot lately (the past week or so) and I've wondered if this is related, but I couldn't find anything in the media. it's usually turns off 5 or 10 minutes at the time (not accepting requests according to MS connection diags). it seems to be google.com only, as I can get on google.ca .co.uk .com.au etc.

Even self signed certs should not fail if administrated correctly.
Changes in certificates there should be notice for it's users
to ignore, accept and or add and accept the changes.

Possibility, users computer the time date time zone is incorrect.

DNS issues possible? Malware or other causing redirection.
Expired certificate. If the certificate is correct there should be
a notice that it has expired, but different warnings in different
situations.
-
SSH may say that the certificate has changed, bla bla, and ask do you
want to accept the certificate change. y/n . Email and other services

Like normal certificates it is possible for self signed certificates to expire. If they were offloaded to the trusted root certificate store by the entity who provisioned the workstation (which would prevent the warning from throwing) they simply may have expired.
More likely people just didn't give a shit. It's not like these machines are using certificate pinning anyway.
Also MITM attacks are difficult to pull off if you aren't the NSA. or FEMA.

Kinda yes and no I assume. If one were able to intercept the initial connection
of a so-called target(s,) clients connection to a remote site. They possibly
could hold that MTM status somewhat indefinitely if wanted. It should fail
eventually, sooner or later, admins or otherwise offering warning
messages.

The most easy example to see I guess is using an SSH connection. If client initially reaches server and accepts certificate/authentication without any interference. The accepted ssh key is stored and should be regarded as trusted. I this deviates it could be explained as many possible causes.

Most likely if initial connection was correct, the outdated server cert, server change, pulled
cets, domain (server) change, would be the cause of warnings of mismatched certs.

It's not possible to reconstruct the original image.
Unlike with some hentai that was purposely scrambled with the blocks still containing the parts of the image, just moved to different locations, and you could puzzle them back together.
Here the blocks just contain a solid color.


However in theory it is possible to extrapolate a plausible image using a feed-forward neural network trained with lots and lots of of nude people, it still won't be the original image though, just something that can pass as a photo to the algorithm. If it will pass the eyeball test depends on how good your neural network was trained.

But since that requires some serious work and this is cutting edge stuff unless you are really motivated and learn to do it yourself it won't be done. Or you could just wait a decade or so when this kind of stuff has become unambiguous.

hey /tech/

i suffer from very bad pure OCD and for a long time feared that I was a pedophile or attracted to, I don't even want to say the word

logically I know that I'm not and I'm certain about that

a while back, I was browsing and came across 'non-nude' sites

i didn't access anything which would straight away be considered black and white illegal

i feel repulsed even thinking about it now, but there's also this fear that it will somehow come back to me any day now, with a knock at the door and offender status to my name

how much should I be worrying about this happening to me, because I'm terrified my life is already over and that it's just a matter of time until it's official

I think people here are misunderstanding what OP is saying. He doesn't have pedophilic urges, what he's experiencing is the vicious cycle of constant intrusive thoughts that come with obsessive compulsive disorder. Everyone has intrusive thoughts about doing horrible things, the problem is people with OCD get stuck in this train of thought and obsess over it to the point where they convince themselves that it's going to happen. All I can suggest is talk to your therapist about it, which I understand is easier said than done, but they're not going to judge you and they'll understand what's going on.

So I intend to buy my first 'smartphone,' but with a singular intention: I want to use it just for looking up the prices of things on ebay that I see in thrift stores, pawn shops, yard sales, and so on, meaning the only feature I care about is a good web browser, or ebay app. I don't care about cameras, games, whatever else people do with their phones, I just want to use the internet away from home from time to time, as cheaply as feasible

Which also means I'm interested in a good prepaid data thing; most of what I've looked at is "unlimited data" for a monthly fee, but I think it might be better to get a definite amount to be used at my leisure, but then I don't know, so I'd also like advice on that

thank you in advance, brothers

Check if you have Metro PCS stores in your area. They have a free (cheap model) phone promotion going, but you'll have to ask if you qualify, because it's meant for people switching from another provider, and since this is your first smartphone they may not give it to you. Basically, you sign up for the $50/month plan and the phone is free, then after the first month, you can change to any other plan you want, even their cheapest plan, which is $30/month.

I got the Samsung Galaxy On5, which should suit your needs fine. It runs Android version 6.0, and offers a stock web browser as well as Google Chrome (and you should be able to download others from Google Play, if you want.) The screen is very cheaply made and I find myself having to clean it occasionally due to excessive fingerprints and smudges.

The only reason you might need a better phone than that is if you plan to open up a lot of browser tabs, which uses your phone's RAM, and if you run of RAM then the browser will crash.

As a first-time buyer, make sure you check the data coverage map (not the phone coverage map) of the provider you choose to be sure you can get data in the areas you actually plan to be using the phone.

Also, be aware that most providers will advertise an "unlimited" data plan, but there's no such thing as actually unlimited mobile data. Most of the time, somewhere in the fine print, they'll specify that they throttle your connection if you exceed a set limit of data per month, and the throttled speeds are usually so slow that you may as well not even have a data connection at all at that point. You can still buy an unlimited plan if you want, and you'll still get way more data than any limited plan, you just need to be conscious of what the limits are on your unlimited plan so that you don't find out too late that you're out of 4G data for the month.

Downloading photos can be data intensive, so visiting eBay a lot will use up quite a bit of data. If it's important for you to never run out of data, I'd recommend you start with a higher end plan, perhaps even unlimited, then learn how to check data usage on the phone you buy. At the end of the first month, you'…

I have an old desktop PC that I built primarily for gaming that's finally kicking the bucket. Some of the parts are older than others, the motherboard and power supply I bought less than a year ago for instance, as well as the RAM. But the processor is fairly old (3 years, no problems), the graphics card generally works fine except at high settings on new games where it starts to artifact, and this piece of shit hard drive is dying.

Basically, I don't play games that much anymore and don't need this weight of computer anymore now that I travel a lot. I'm ready to wipe my hands clean of this thing, but I'm fairly sure no one wants to buy a rig that's halfway on death's door.

My question is this: how best to squeeze some profit out of this thing? Should I list it on craigslist and just be forthwith about the problems it has or try to sell the decent parts individually? Anyone have experience with something similar?

If you just want to be rid of it, remove tor replace the hard drive and sell it on Craigslist. If you want to maximize your money, part it out on ebay and reuse the case if you like it. Also, Sapphire does 2 year warranties so you can probably get the card replaced.

Recently I've been looking for a new VPN. I don't care how much it costs, just something that will give me the most protection and anonymity. I don't need anything bulletproof, necessarily.. but as long as a majority of what I do is concealed, it'll be sufficient.

I've looked into Private Internet Access and TorGuard, but am still unsure of who to go with. Any suggestions?

Seems waiting a while for new movies is bet bet. Stick to real PB, .eu ?
If a file of say a movie is newmovie.mpg.exe. Sounds legit, the title, the mpeg is there, the extension in the final part, the .msi. or .exe is always, forget mac
extensions for installs is but if the final .extension can be executed then it should not be even remotely touched, or at least deleted immediately.

Quicktime, has has issues in the past. it's ongoing. The way it is. Other than that
I do not see music, or any other media files that have embedded viruses. Except with QuickTime, that should be fixed by now.

Firefox can have issues. Just set up a limited account with your mac. Use that for everything.

>What happens is that when I sometimes click a link or almost anything on both Firefox and Safari, a new window will open for some shitty advertising, basically a popup..

That's a browser hijack, run HijackThis and delete anything that looks suspicious

So I have been thinking about accessing the deep web but I hear you can get hacked pretty easily down there. I know NOTHING about hacking and was wondering what exactly happens when someone gets hacked? For security/privacy measures, I was going to use a Raspberry Pi 3 running a Linux OS for accessing the deep web exclusively...Meaning that I will only use the computer for accessing the deep web exclusively right out of the box. I will never type personal information into the computer from the time I start using it to the time I stop using it. Am I safe-ish? What exactly happens when someone "gets hacked"? I'm not too much of a noob when it comes to how things work with computers/internet, however, I'm a super noob when it comes to security. I know how to use a browser based proxy and a VPN. That's about it.

Also, make sure you disable WebRTC in your browser because this is the most common way your real IP can get leaked through javascript. I would hope the TOR bundle has it disabled by default but just in case...

It definitely relies on javascript to be enabled with a regular browser. However in tor it seems to be disabled by default in some form or another, with javascript enabled as well.

It could be exploited with a VPN. But if one used say noscript correctly I don't think these would be leaked. Unless the exploit is inherent in the mechanism
vpn service uses.

it's not really an exploit or flaw, but it could be used as an exploit.

Another is html canvasing. just x out the popup when you come across these.
Benign but also not necessary.

K you totally lost me lol. Is it a big deal if hackers find out my IP address? Again, the computer I will be using will just be a Raspberry Pi with a Linux OS on it. I will be opening the box that it came in and will IMMEDIATELY start using it to use the deep web and it will serve no other purpose. It will never contain any personal info on it. What could a hacker do to me or take from me in this scenario? I am super curious now.

>>119912Yea do
If one had your IP address they could
possibly use it to exploit your system.
Not very likely.

Do this go to https://www.grc.com/shieldsup
and test to see if certain 'service' ports are open.

If all is greeen you have no service ports open. That would be stealth and would report that there is no computer or working connection at that address.

The people "getting hacked" on the tor network are admins running insecure web servers; it just happens a lot there because a) most of the regulars browsing the tor network have an interest in things like hacking and computer security in general, and b) lots of criminal businesses sitting on large amounts of bitcoins who have zero legal recourse if someone roots their box and robs them and their users blind


Live distro at work by JackGunnerpurk.lgo - Tue, 04 Oct 2016 15:21:41 EST ID:3VMh2Q98 No.119903 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Sometimes I am at work at night, finnish my work and boot a linux live distro and use my android to do tethering and use my (uncensored) internet.
I always unplug the eth cable because I don't want them to see some host named Mint or Kali.
I don't know if they can see that the cable was unpluged or just turned off the pc.
What is the safest / untrackable way to run my live Linux at work on free times?

Alot of times office admins will have computers set to boot off a network command for updating or whatever, which tends to be done at night. The admin can be present at or it can be run automatically. If you were to unplug the ethernet cable, even if the computer is off, the admin might still be able to detect that the computer is not connected to the the network under these circumstances.

As far as i know, Kali was designed to be undetectable, i bet with alittle linux widardry and minimal effort, you would be able to configure the boot to be undetectable.

If tethering meaning using your phone for your internet connection? Just get a cheap laptop and use that. Just install the system on a laptop. Don't freak about live cds and all that hype. Yes they can tell if a connection is disrupted as it would be assigned a local Ip when plugged back in, as well when disrupted if that is a semi-routine focus.

A factor to consider depending on the business is possible to have cameras right above workstations, ect. They can be right there and you may not see it even if you tried.

Work from your car?

So if tethering means using your phone as a gateway so-too-speak, get a laptop, an older 1996 one can run some distributions of linux flawlessly if it had like a gig of ram and a 1.4 1.7 Mhz processor.


With a cd slow going. Work from a location that you feel comfortable or shield you work enough so if anything above around is lurking it will not see what you are seeing. Very unlikely scenario, but it does happen in certain businesses corporate scenarios where areas are monitored. Stairwells just as well.

Work from you car where nobody would come up on you without you noticing? Just use you own laptop, a cheap say inspiron 1150, $20 bucks, 3o bucks. Ram is expensive, batteries likely need replaced. Best i can think of now. Do use your own equipment and don't connect to their network
or use it in any unsafe manner.
