amd fx 8350, 8gb ram, gtx770 i mean it's not the fastest but accordion to specs it shouldn't be slow.
somehow this i7 hp laptop can play bloons td5 on ninjakiwi to highest levels (its a flash game that progressively adds more shit to the screen over time) but on my desktop that shit stutters and sucks from the get-go.
the desktop can mostly deliver on all the other games i have though i've noticed things are still kind of shitty.
is it a problem with flash, did i put shit together wrong i mean wat. all drivers are up to date everything is up to date.

i had been using tails 2.3 on my hp pavilion 17 laptop successfully for a month or so, until i got a message saying i should upgrade it to 2.5 (now 2.6). i tried manually upgrading it, but every time i would try to boot tails, it would boot windows instead.
since then, i have decided to completely reinstall the newest version of tails on my usb drive, and it still won't boot. in my bios settings, i have disabled secure boot, and i have usb key first in the boot order. i have tried to boot tails in every usb port, and it won't boot. what is going on?

If you're successfully booting from the USB drive, you should at a minimum be seeing a screen that says there's a problem. Without any kind of message, this is impossible for anyone else to troubleshoot.

Purchased a stolen Galaxy S6 by accident. Help? by ArchieGorringwodge.mod - Tue, 20 Sep 2016 23:57:31 EST ID:APWfVgdd No.119846 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply
File: 1474430251975.jpg -(9574B / 9.35KB, 160x212) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. 9574
I bought a used Sprint Galaxy S6 (NOT the edge one) and realized when I got it turned on that it is like locked or something. It looks like someone did a factory reset through the bootloader or whatever so that it is showing the Welcome screen and initial set up but after half a minute or so, it goes tot he WiFi setup and shows a tooltip thing saying that "an unauthorized attempt to reset has been made blah blah please connect to wifi to verify your identity".

So, since I paid for it and can't get my money back, I'd like to try to at least get into it to see if I can get the IMEI or some other unique identifying number and look up the owner and return it to them and just eat the money and if I can't get the actual owner, then I'd like to use it.

From what I've read, if the IMEI is blacklisted, I can change it or pay to have it unblocked/unblacklisted. To do that, though, I have to get past the user authentication. It turns on and just goes to the Wifi set up with the unauthorized reset notification and I can't do anything else with it. What do? I'm still looking up shit to the best of my abilities but I'm shit with phones.

So, my firefox browser keeps flickering from black to normal. Couple days ago, got this fake-warning popup with a "WARNING" voice message and all this text. Now the internet browser screen keeps flickering like a dying lightbulb.

I don't have anti-virus because reasons. Will getting one and installing it save my computer, or do I have to reformat or something?

Can I save everything on my computer with my external harddrive, or could I risk fucking it up by transferring the virus there, too?

Thanks in advance. If I broke a rule posting this, I apologize.

Firefox doesn't know or store anything. The way it works is that when you consent, Firefox will take a list of wifi APs that your computer can see along with the reported signal strength and then send that to a location service, e.g. Google Location Services, and return approximate coordinates to the website that made the request. In this case, those coordinates are sufficiently accurate for your home address.

It depends on where you are, but it's generally as accurate as a cheap GPS receiver. Also it's not just Googe. There are a bunch of databases and companies that are in the business of reselling your BSSID information. Mozilla has been building its own proprietary database for years:

So, just recently I did some stuff on Tor. I won't say what specifically in case the authorities somehow do find out what I did (thanks to my poor decisions), as 420chan doesn't allow the use of Tor, but given the context of this site, I'm hoping it should be pretty obvious what I did. Nonetheless, I don't want to even have a small risk of fucking myself over, so that vague statement will have to do.

Anyway, I attempted to use Tails, but the fucking thing wouldn't work on my machine, even after some very intensive and extensive troubleshooting, so I just used the TBB (not my smartest idea, I know, but I had ingested some substances which definitely weren't amphetamines and had been up for around 36-40 hours, which is very unusual for me and most definitely affected my judgement quite negatively). Oh, shit, I almost forgot. I downloaded a few files (public keys, I think I may have saved a few bookmarks, and maybe some other gpg/pgp stuff, I can't quite remember - it was a bit hazy).

So, what are the best ways of securing my system after this? I vaguely remember hearing to never download stuff on Tor, so if that's what fucks me over, I'll be incredibly unhappy. I've taken some steps to try to improve my safety, but I definitely want to do more. First, I went and deleted all of the bookmarks and then encrypted the public keys with TrueCrypt. Next, I "Shredded" the entire TBB and any other similar files I could find with the AVG Shredder thing. After that, I had no idea what other steps I could/should take, so I just downloaded VeraCrypt and am currently encrypting my entire system, with 7 passes to try to secure against that magnetic recovery thing. Should I have done more passes? The options were 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 35, and 7 and is going to take 9-10 hours, so 35 would've taken an incredibly long time. In the next few days to weeks, I will keep an eye out for weird looking postmen, weird vans parked around, and any other shady characters, and I'll keep any packages that I happen to receive on my table, unopened, because if anything illegal arrives, it definitely wouldn't be mine, and I wouldn't want to open anybody e…

TOR is compromised. The best thing you can do is access it WHILE running a good VPN after using a packet sniffer to confirm the VPN itself is secure.

The good news is that literally nobody gives a single fuck that you bought drugs online. That's a joke to us. You are a customer, not a dealer. We don't care about you.

Sorry to (briefly) hi-jack this thread but I was just about to make one about encryption as well.

Are there any cons or dangers using technology like TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt on your HDD/SSD for encryption? Aren't there certain instances in which things can go wrong and you can end up losing all your files? If so, how does that happen?

I don't have anything that could put me in trouble but still, encryption has always fascinated me and on top of that I'm a very private person. I might mess with it if the technology is secure enough.

Or are there other solutions that work just as good?

Thank you.

Well writers of programs, (open source code) as well, can do the opposite of
a programs intent.

Say SSL,TLS. Wireless encryption can be vulnerable as well. ( understand this) If one could write a program, one could make it do the opposite of the original intention with minimal effort.

Run a Linux live cd. Use it to backup files you want and then use dd overwrite your hdd with /dev/urandom. Then repeat once or twice. Then do the same with /dev/zero. Then reinstall all your stuff. Oh sure have a look is a better reply to investigators than good luck I'm behind 7 proxies.

Unless you did something crazy ran a program you downloaded from TOR that modified one of the files you backed up to leave a finger print that lets them know "I did such and such illegal activity." there will be no economically retrievable evidence of you being on TOR on your hdd.

Really though unless you leaked classified documents, saved illegal pizza, or bought drugs you probably did nothing illegal. If you leaked classified documents the best info they have on your identity is a list of people with access to that information. If you saved illegal pizza the best info they'll have of your identity is if you went to a honey pot with java script that leaked your IP etc. over clear net. If you bought drugs the best info they'll have is the name and address you gave to the dealer.

If you're leaking they'll be monitoring the people on the list to see who is sneaking out data on a usb stick. If you're pirating domino's they'll snoop around until you do it again until they have enough proof. They'll probably install a trojan on your computer while you're at work. If you're buying drugs they'll probably ignore you. But if they don't they'll either do a controlled delivery or wait until you open the package and then catch you in possession.

Saving public keys is some trivial stuff. Saving links isn't really bad unless visiting the links is illegal as is the case of domino's pirating. I guess you could make the argument that a bookmark to a murder for hire site would be bad if someone you knew shot themselves in the head 3 times, dismembered themselves, and then climbed in to a piece of luggage and then you somehow became a suspect. Unless you're friends with enemies of Hillary I wouldn't worry about it.

So I am way off. However, you could, possibly, a fix. Point your torrent program to the SD card. DI torrents, through utorrent, it will have options. One I find is encrypt
connections. That is fine, weak encryption.
This will fix your issues,, I used older torrent programs. You I think simply just need create a folder for torrents from within utorrent. Make one for. \temp
one for finished.

Be simple. If needed, restart/reset your phone. More times you do this the
more you know your phone.
