Hierarchal filesystems are nice and all, but we should consider the possibility that other means of organizing information may be useful. When "I can efficiently drive around the filesystem with cd and ls" morphs from a skill into a fetish, that interferes with objective consideration of alternatives.

@tedu @trwnh oh, I think I've got it
there might be a race condition if there are multiple reasons your account may be discovered or refreshed at around the same time (e.g. multiple boosts)
we have a lock to prevent data corruption and errors, but it may still perform more fetches than needed. I will have a look into fixing that!

Sigh. Mastodon can't cache for shit. Everytime an elephant that doesn't follow me sees one of my posts, it fetches the full profile data (plus followers, webfinger, outbox, avatar, etc.). It does this even if it fetched this info one minute ago. Repeatedly. Note the timestamps. Now multiple by 5x for all the other endpoints.

Some tootles about captchas and stopgaps.

https://twitter.com/mattblaze/status/1182730107359846402

@mattblaze: CAPTCHAs were originally conceived as a stopgap; an inconvenience imposed on legitimate users until we find better solutions to automated bots. But now that they're being used to train commercial ML systems, we're likely stuck with them for a lot longer.

@mattblaze: The original idea was that CAPTCHAs force the adversary to do AI-hard research that would be useful on its own. But now they're giving the adversary the option to do something much more insidious: research how to automatically fool life-critical ML into being falsely trained.

@mattblaze: Are there safeguards against this? Maybe. Maybe not. But all the incentives are completely different from what the original CAPTCHA idea envisioned, with potentially much higher stakes.

@mattblaze: Anyway, leave it to the Internet to find creative ways to make bad ideas worse.

Demystifying Bearer Capability URIs

Demystifying Bearer Capability URIs

Historically, there has been a practice of combining URIs with access tokens containing sufficient entropy to make them difficult to brute force. A few different techniques have been implemented to do this, but those techniques can be considered implementation specific. One of the earliest and most notable uses of this technique can be observed in the Second Life backend APIs.

An example of a capability URL being used in the fediverse today would be in the way that Pleroma refers to ActivityPub objects and activities: https://socially.whimsic.al/objects/b05e883b-b66f-421b-ac46-c6018f539533 is a capability URL that allows access to a specific object.

However, while it is difficult for capability URLs to be brute forced due to containing tokens that have sufficient entropy to make guessing them expensive, they are have a serious flaw — since the access token is part of the resource being accessed, they tend to leak the access token in two ways:

  • Browser Referer headers
  • Server access and error logs

Since the usage of capability URLs has become widespread, a wonderful specification has been released by the IETF: OAuth 2.0. OAuth provides a possible solution in the form of bearer tokens, which can be passed around using an Authorization header.

Bearer Capability URIs (aka bearcaps) are essentially a construct which combines a resource with an access token that happens to grant some form of access to that resource, while keeping that access token out of band. Since the access token is out of band, it cannot be leaked in a Referer header or in a server log.

But what does a bearcap URI look like? It's actually quite simple. Let's build on the example URL I gave above — it's bearcap URI would be something like: bearcap:?u=https://socially.whimsic.al/notice/9nnmWVszgTY13FduAS&t=b05e883b-b66f-421b-ac46-c6018f539533.

Let's break this down into parts.

bearcap is the name of the URI scheme, and then that is further broken down into a pair of URI query parameters:

  • u is the URI that the supplied token happens to be able to access in some way
  • t is the access token itself

In this case, a client which wanted to consume this bearcap (say to fetch the object behind it) would make a GET request to the URI specified, with the token specified:

GET /notice/9nnmWVszgTY13FduAS HTTP/1.1
Host: socially.whimsic.al
Authorization: Bearer b05e883b-b66f-421b-ac46-c6018f539533
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
[...]

In a future post, we will go into how bearcap URIs can help to bring some aspects of capability-based security to ActivityPub.

@write_as @matt I noticed some writefreely instances are federating with rather shortened object ids. At first I thought this was one instance misconfiguration, but reviewing some logs it seems to be happening quite a bit.

https://pencil.writefree.ly/api/posts/oz4isl4vah has only "id": "/api/posts/oz4isl4vah". This is of course not globally unique.

(There's some wiggle room in the spec regarding relative URIs, but in general I'd say they aren't very useful. I think this is a bug?)

@DigitalLawyer: Oooof. Was just subjected to the most credible phishing attempt I've experienced to date. Here were the steps: 1) "Hi, this is your bank. There was an attempt to use your card in Miami, Florida. Was this you?" Me: no.

@DigitalLawyer: 2) "Ok. We've blocked the transaction. To verify that I am speaking to Pieter, what is your member number?" Me: <gives member number> (that number, by itself, is useless).

@DigitalLawyer: 3) "We've sent a verification pin to your phone." ~ Gets verification pin text from bank's regular number ~ Me: <reads out the pin>

@DigitalLawyer: 4) "Ok. I am going to read some other transactions, tell me if these are yours. ~ Reads transactions ~" Me: Yes. These are all legitimate transactions I made

@DigitalLawyer: 5) "Thank you! We now want to block the pin on your account, so you get a fraud alert when it is used again. What is your pin?" Me: Are you effing kidding me, no way.

@DigitalLawyer: 6) Ok! But than we can't block your card Me: that is bs. ~ hangs up, calls the fraud department of bank ~

@DigitalLawyer: --> Once I gave my member number, the attacker used the password reset flow to trigger a text message from the bank. --> They used this to gain access to the account. --> Then read some of my transactions to give the call more credibility

@DigitalLawyer: --> Needed the pin to send money, failed at that step. --> Everything before the "what is your pin" seemed totally legitimate. English was perfect. The bank verification code, sent by the expected number, tricked me. --> The asking for my pin over the phone... not so much.

@DigitalLawyer: Stay safe out there people. And now... joyfully resetting all my passwords, filing a police report, getting additional fraud detection in place. Never a dull moment!

I like using a tiling window manager so I can splitscreen my browser and read one medium article eviscerating facebook for not censoring enough and another medium article eviscerating facebook for censoring too much at the same time.

It's 2019 and I keep forgetting that CLI tools can now and regularly do have spying ("analytics") built in.

@grainloom I haven't liked rocket.chat since that time I visited their homepage and their background animation ate all my RAM and/or CPU. That was possibly the first time I heard my 2013 MBP's fans go at full power.

Hrmm, something in pleroma's css makes it display inline img as display: block? And not default inline? But I can't find it.

We have some people on Friend Camp who *almost never* post federated, and that's okay. Their presence here helps keep other people who *do* federate engaged and enjoying their time on Friend Camp!

Does anyone know of a good FOSS alternative to Scrivener? I've heard Scrivener itself is a great tool for writers that are concerned about managing multiple chapters and narratives, but I was curious about whether there were any good alternatives out there.

For example, although the pattern ‘^(.*)\1{14}(.*)\2{13}$’ matches only lines whose lengths can be written as a sum 15x + 14y for nonnegative integers x and y, the pattern matcher does not perform linear Diophantine analysis and instead backtracks through all possible matching strings, using an algorithm that is exponential in the worst case.

I guess "you need to distress" is something you would say to somebody taking things too easy.

Not sure how I achieved this, but the #honk menu is now precisely sized to fit my browser window. Every item added after this means an item must be removed.

the honk menu is a beautiful sight to behold
