There's this guy who was caught on surveillance cameras murdering a guy in Mendocino my home county. He and some friends murdered a guy and stole his 120+ pounds of pot. Doing some social media sleuthing has yielded the murderers instagram account.

My question today is what manner of leet hax are required to get someone's IP and physical location based on minimal information such as his instagram account?

Here's the news story in a local paper as well as a pic of his face. His Instagram handle is @wah_boo

I heard about this in the paper and then I come on 420chan and see this.

real shame that this kind of stuff is still happening Did you know the guy? One of my buds was killed by a tweaker and sometimes I'm still in denial about it.

Why do you want to find them before the police? You trying to rob them?

I've been using Dreamhost to host my email and look after my domains (nothing hosted really) for the past few years because there was an offer of free domains at the time of SOPA and it was a good deal back then.

I've been applying for jobs and visas recently and I found out that no one has been able to email me for more than a month, they get a message about the account not existing. I can email out, and check my existing mails but just can't receive. Basically a complete shitshow.

I need a RELIABLE email host that doesn't cost the earth who I also have the option to transfer my domains to, potentially with some light hosting. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

So lately I've been having really slow internet at certain times and I've read that there could be something that causes DDoS's (a rat I believe it's called?) on my computer, so I downloaded GlassWire to keep an eye on my PC. And today I noticed this and I have no idea what is, but it looks pretty strange. Does anyone know if this is something I should be worried about or is it just normal? Thanks.

I'm thinking about upgrading my computer.
At the moment I am using some ancient motherboard, similar in capacity to a raspberry pi or something, except it's x86.
But it's occurred to me that my phone is more powerful than my desktop, as it has four times as many cores and twice as much memory.

I wondered if it's worth looking at replacing my motherboard with some ARM based thing? If there's a computer system that has a many-core ARM processor, 4 gigs or whatever of RAM, and fits where a standard PC motherboard would go then I'd be interested in knowing about that.

I don't care about recompiling my operating system. Just so long as I can run Linux, browse, compile-and-run my software, and play a full-screen video if I choose. Oh, and also: GPIO would be a plus.

Tethering from hotel wi-fi is using data plan on two 2/3 phones by ShitSinningfurk.dun - Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:36:05 EST ID:Bw2TOsl/ No.120020 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

My family of 3 is currently living in a hotel. We use LG G2 running Android 5.0.2 and our carrier is AT&T. We have a shitty 8GB data plan but have access to the hotel's wi-fi and 2 different desktop computers in here. When I tether my phone I don't use up any of the data plan.

I know this because I downloaded a 15GB game (over fucking wi-fi) and the carrier says I've used 200MB. When the other two phones are tethered to the hotel wi-fi they still use the data on our plan. I've checked and rechecked their phone settings, everything is set up exactly the same as mine aside from USB debugging, but I don't think that's relevant. Any ideas?

Try this though, if wanted. Clear you firefox or whatever browser cache and return to the site, bookmak it to go straight there. I have found interesting .exe files that were listed as straight up viruses in the browsers cache. Being in cache is not an issue, if it actually gets executed is though is another. I never actually tried to run these from cache, (sounds fun to try.) My bet if browsing under an admin account these could possibly simply execute themselves. I could be wrong but under certain circumstances could possibly do so I would assume.

If the computer was bought new and still has the default manufacturers software, help, user experence, call computer manufacturers home apps etc, that would be a very likely issue.

Can go to ad remove programs and see what is installed.

Can go to start, type in msconfig go to 'startup' and see what is there which starts at startup.

Call it overkill but reinstalling windows with a clean windows, not a manufacturers windows
version. Use win7 professional if possible. I does perform better. If win10, don't know what to
say.

You can also get super good deals on old Xeon processors that would still knock your socks off.

If you could get a dual xeon mac pro and upgrade it that stands to be one hell of a bitchin' rig.

Generally though CPU computing performance improvements have just slowed down a lot so when facebook upgrades their datacenters a bunch of $80 super high end CPUs from 2012 get dumped on the market and they're not nearly the joke that a 5 year old processor would have been in 2011

The discount you can get for a fast Xeon doesn't make sense over a comparable i7 once you take into account extra expenses. If you're more into core count and server boards than single threaded performance though, you can get some retardedly cheap CPUs. I'm looking on ebay to edify myself and someone paid $5 per core for a pair of Xeons last month.

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.

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
as well.

Possibility, a fake certificate, even with or without self-signing causing the warnings.

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.
