If you use Discord, you might wanna know this.

A service called Spy Pet is scraping Discord servers, archiving and tracking users' messages and activity, and then selling access to that data.

Spy Pet scrapes more than 10,000 Discord servers, and besides selling access to anyone with cryptocurrency, it offers the data for training AI models or to assist law enforcement agencies, according to its website.

Spy Pet claims to be tracking more than 14,000 servers, 600 million users, and includes a database of more than 3 billion messages.

It is time to ban Bitcoin and other crypto mining In Iceland. It is a big scandal that Iceland is wasting scarce power resources on Bitcoin mining.

Ross Anderson was an awesome, incisive and wide-ranging brain.

Huge champion of privacy and security.

He was also graciously supportive when I first came to cybersecurity.

Can't believe I won't be seeing him again.

Rest in peace

I had a dream last night about ChaCha20.

I've been putting it together in JavaScript, just because, so it is on my mind.

He has already been preparing his appeal, though I doubt very much he will have any success with it.

He has also been ordered to pay the $11 billion monetary judgment requested by the prosecution. This is on top of assets already seized by the government.

Stop using Brave Browser

The Brave web browser has carved out a niche over the past few years as an alternative to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and other mainstream web browsers. Some of that has come from its marketing as a privacy-preserving web browser, and it has also been repeatedly evangelized by cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
