2018-04-06 @ 07:27: Gnome Connection Manager seems to be dead :( BugsPythonSecurityTools

Looks like the website of the beloved Gnome Connection Manager seems to be dead. I created a clone of the original code and will implement the fix mentioned here as soon as I find the code. It’s somewhere burried in a bunch of data on a pile of harddisks. What a mess!

I don’t like the WordPress plugin directory, so I publish my plugins only on Github. Grab the latest version here. Feel free to fork this. If you find a bug, please create an issue for that. I will have a look on that as soon as I have time.

2014-11-27 @ 19:25: How to recover saved passwords from Gnome Connection Manager BugsSecurity

About two weeks ago I found a bug in Gnome Connection Manager 1.1.0 which allows you to recover saved passwords (e.g. in case you forgot them). To my mind this bug is kinda harmless as long as no one gains access to your gcm.conf file. I informed Renzo Bertuzzi, the author of GCM, and he immediately came up with a fix. Thanks for that! However, since no update is available, yet, I will disclose this bug to the public.

2011-08-04 @ 15:33: major HOSTS file update DownloadsNetworkSecurity

I updated the HOSTS file, added compatibility with Android OS and added a simple install script to control the HOSTS file on Windows. I didn’t create an APK since you need root-access on Android to update the file and I think if you’re already root you won’t install this file using an APK. 😉 Just push it to /system/etc and you’re good to go. No need to reboot. Changes apply immediately.


I tested the script on Windows Seven x32 only and I appreciate to hear your experiences when running on any x64 version of Windows. Anyway, enjoy!

2011-04-21 @ 13:32: important update of HOSTS file DownloadsFacebookSecurity

The HOSTS file has been updated due to massive spam coming from faked invitations, chats and link recommendations by infected friends on Facebook.
 
To block unwanted tags you need to disable the tagging feature temporarily as long as this spam continues.
 
To disable click on “Account” -> “Privacy Settings” -> “Customize settings” -> “Photos and videos you’re tagged in” -> “Edit Settings” and change to “Only Me” via “Custom edit”. Click “Okay” to accept your changes.

2011-04-13 @ 10:58: suggest me a title cause I’m to lazy to type one in here :) FacebookSecurity

Someone told me you cannot delete your own Facebook account, but deactivate it. This is not true. If you try to delete your account, Facebook asks if you want to deactivate it. Well, that is true. It does not say it deletes your account. So, if you really wish to delete your Facebook account instead of just deactivating it, you now find a link in my Downloads section (hence the name) to really fully delete your account. Read more …

2011-03-19 @ 16:22: secure HOSTS file updated AGAIN! DownloadsSecurity

Some minutes ago I got a chat message on Facebook from one of my Ville Helpers¹. This is what she wrote:

OMG: This girl killed herself after her FATHER posted this message on her wall: bit.ly/hiht3w

Sounds like the usual crap, so I opened the link with Chromium 12 in an incognito session. It redirected me to www.aclebite.info and forced me to log in to Facebook. I didn’t check what happened when I log in, so just be careful. The domain is blocked by my latest HOSTS file.
