Fighting back against an unlawful eviction
"There is a new. Order from the CDC which I've talked about briefly on a couple of occasions. That says because of the public health risk. That you have. A right to hold off a foreclosure. Until next year. So, through the remainder of the year, but the process is one that has confused. Individuals who are behind on their rent. And their landlords that have been very aggressive. In a number of jurisdictions. Trying to go ahead and get people evicted. And this is why I wanNA state. Again. This situation. With no winners. landlord's bills to pay. Tenants don't have money to pay their rent and a lot of cases. And so this is a lose lose completely. But. You do have these specific rights based on the CDC guidelines to avoid eviction for the rest of the year. If you jump through the right hoops now, there have been anecdotal situations around the country where judges have made their own decisions ignoring. The CDC. and. Ahead and processing evictions anyway. But I think that's more unusual. The bigger issue is people don't know how the process works. And, you have to go through a series of tests. That you have to answer. On a form that I have linked at Clark, Dot Com as a tenant where you have to validate and verify income. And then you have to go through a series of questions where you have. tried. Other ways to be able to meet your rent obligation but have been unable to do so and so you answer these various questions that people have found confusing and so there are landlords have been very aggressive about trying to get their properties back because they want money right so. There's now free software available that I read about I and Bloomberg. Vet Is available to you. That will help you through the questions so that you properly give the landlord and if necessary before a judge, you give the landlord, the documentation that would forestall an eviction. Till Twenty, one. So the software you want to look for his hello landlord. And it is free, it takes you through nineteen questions. You have to answer. In order to have the defense of the CDC regulations to avoid being evicted. Till next year

"It's rather fantastic. So I've I've spent some considerable time learning the ins-and-outs cuz it's a new thing to me and I didn't know didn't understand the subtleties of it, but I've been learning and yeah, I've launched a Discord server to complement the YouTube videos that I've been doing recently in order to cultivate some Community contribution to the projects that we're working on. Well speaking of communities. Let's get on with the show. And this week on the show. We are going to be talking about building communities.

Linux: Benefits of Open Source Operating Systems
"As with all open source software the the basic source code used to create is not proprietary, is not kept secret, but is open to all, and if you have you know, depends on the level of skill you have, but if you're a coder, you can modify it. You can contribute to it. I think open software is brilliant. I'm a huge fan and I think you're exactly on the right track. Virtually any computer can run a version of Lennox. There are many many versions hundreds of versions they're all based on the Lennox. Colonel created by LAWA's toward falls in one, thousand, nine, hundred ninety s and updated by him and a team of many people the years he is brilliant, and his team is brilliant, and they've made that colonel, a very modern powerful colonel in the entire Lennox, distribution has takes the kernel of the operating system. That line did an ad software generally suffer from the canoe. Project, the Free Software Foundation's project to create versions of software that are free and open source of all the major kinds of suffer, and you mentioned Lebron Office which is a free Microsoft office style sweet, but there's there's all sorts of great stuff for photo editing for music editing pretty much these days. There's nothing. You need windows or Mac

Yes so, this is in fact possible snaps on tied to running on the snap store, though being downloaded from this now, so if people cared about this enough and wanted to be able to run snaps. They could do that and have any number of proposed trees.

I think because of the process in into sometimes packages take like a week to land but because the system seventy six people have their own. Pa They can just Ninja packages straight into that PPA super fast and deliver it arguably faster than us with a whether you prefer that one. Oh yeah some people like the idea of move fast and break things and other people like Qa throwing shade pulp. I'm just having a bit of a joke but yeah it seems relatively popular.

I'm not sure exactly how that process worked. But apparently when canonical stopped developing talk there was some things in unity which runs in to touch. Even though touch was using unique feature branches the happened being merged into master to release and I think it was depending on like technology such as you know mayor and system day and stuff like that malaise features hadn't landed yet a now.

How to produce your own webinar with Glen Aspeslagh
"My guess is a CO founder of the popular all in one lie shooting production platform e Cam live. Please welcome Glen Asper slay. Hello Glen Haven Alley. How's it going? Oh super good now. Here's what's kind of funny is thank you so much for appearing on the show in such short notice I was actually working with the CAM. Live and I making do things that I'm sure you really didn't think of it to be designed for now going from a Mac to a PC I just I literally just push. This thing passed its limit. The maximum is not as powerful. Your tech support is absolutely phenomenal. I shot I shot them a message on a chat and within like ten minutes later they said. Just tell me what you want to accomplish. I wrote down. Here's the answer and within I'd probably say thirty minutes I had a perfect answer and a solution and I called my producer to tell them how exciting that was that often that we have down so anyways I very very excited and for those of you. That are listening. I'm sure a lot of you've watched our webinars on focus and even on Sky Lem and were using e Cam live and a lot of listeners. Been asking us. You know what platform using so who better to answer all of our questions that the CO founder Glen. You actually program too. Don't you Y- Is a small operation. Really my brother and I founded it My brother Ken and I are just Mack guys since birth and Matt Programmers. Ever since we were you know I guess ten years old. Wow so it it. It's like It's just our thing we've always done. We've always done software and we've been doing MAC software fulltime for. I guess ten years now. I loved your interaction with each other when you did the when. He launched the new versions. And you had a you guys got together you did. You did a little interaction I can tell you two brothers nothing I mean we we we love. We love doing that because we used to do. We do live on a cable. Show back when you know. Towns have public access cable studios so wondering when we were in high school we would do a show so you know twenty five years later when our marketing team wanted us to go actually go on camera we were like? Hey you know this is like old times. So so. Who's the older brother? Who's the older? You were a key candidates five minutes older. Oser your wanted twins but he always he always will deadpan. You Know No. We're the same age. That's what twins me someone asks. Well well I'm the youngest of six children in a in a very strong Italian Catholic family. So you can guess all the pranks and stuff were were taken out on. Me's the youngest child of that's awesome. We we love being on camera together when we love. We love this Having all these these numbers in and having a product that is just sorta center centered around. Social media is is just so much fun. Because it's it. It's not just the software in the coding and the technical things We just having a lot of fun. You know building a community and in doing videos and and making content. There's this the whole hoping of suspense such a blast. Great let's get to our topics and Topic is how to produce your own Webinar or stream live to facebook and to youtube and different platforms So what what was the purpose of designing e Cam live pretty excited about live streaming. When it first started to when facebook spurs started to promote their facebook product. We saw this as an opportunity to make a really user friendly Mac out to do live streaming and remember. I said Mac out because we don't do windows APPS We'RE NOT DOING. Iphone is tied right now. This is only on the map and we thought we had this background in audio and visual software. We can make this really slick easy to use APP. That just works really well and does one thing and does it well and that was what we wanted to tackle was this idea of of of live streaming really now a lot about live streaming gumming in like a really really cool thing to do. Well you guys definitely nailed it not ballpark So what are we talked about? Some of the features of Kim live now from my perspective. I can see from a designing phase. It's really simple to use. How did you guys come up with that? We wanted to do this. Sort of what you see is what you get interface. You know what I mean like when you go into can live you see. The main window is just an image of you of you. You know you whatever you see on that man windows exactly what your audience is. GonNa see so. That was the first thing we wanted to approach. We also wanted to have it really tightly integrated with facebook and in and then afterwards we added Youtube. It was originally thought of as a facebook product where with live streaming. I'm sure you're familiar with the concept. The best stream key and what a bit rate is and what you know. Resolutions and stuff. We wanted to sort of abstract that really sort of apple style. You know what I mean and say like we don't want people that need to notice Jim he is or what their bit rate is. We want to ask them questions like like that. We just want us to have a big blue button after you log in the facebook and you can go live on. You definitely definitely accomplished. I came from. I'm trying to think of the the platform now. It's a free software. I had a tip of my tongue. I lost it but so for three. One opiates Oh bs thank you. Yes yes yes. It's yes it's great but again like you just said you have to know your stream key. You have to know a lot of the stuff behind the scenes and that's just a little complicated and once you get the hang of it. It was fine but it looked to me like you took no. Bs Concept and just laid beautiful interface on top of it and said you don't need to know any of this other stuff. Click here if you WANNA go live. Click here if you want to just practice and publish it to yourself. So you know there was a lot of neat things. I've noticed for ease of use the way it was designed that that was a that was a big focus and then but then. I you know it started out really simple. The core feature is going live to facebook. Rolling prerecorded videos adding overlays and And screen sharing so those were the core features and then. Ironically you know when we started you know building a user base week people were were asking for features like crazy and we decided you know. Let's have some fun start having let's try and keep it really simple. You know not not make it into this big overwhelming. Why are cast or obese or something like that keep the interface really simple and yet still make it more and more powerful so now three years later it is has grown into this sort of full featured live streaming studio in. Our hope is that it's still. It's still easy to use and we didn't intimidate anyone no but multiple cameras which I thought was fascinating. I like the idea. You've ever boat gas via skype. So and I know we're using the software where we're using it more like a Webinar base. Where I'm teaching and I know you said in the beginning you ought to use it. So people can show demos and show to Tourelles I'm finding able to use it as a production to where I can't have. A couple of guests would be live from all over the country and they could share their demos so I switched to somebody like Abbas Shapiro. And so you know it's your turn. Show us what you would do with this image and Aiba takes over the screen and now all of us are watching his demo and then control come back to me and that I could switch it off to another person now. Was that stuff that you thought about the beginning or it just evolved into it. That kind of Kennedy came along a just kind of a bald The integration with SKYPE IS NEAT. Because it's it's it's not really it's not a hack at all skype. Has this concept of sending out the video sources of over the over an MD. I connection so we can tie that. They're Li seamlessly and like you said if if someone else's remote and they wanNA share their screen over skype that comes into ECON lab just like a camera. So you know you you plug a camera in Birmingham live at shows. Up this medically the same thing happens for a skype guest orest Guest sharing their screen so while there are kind of moving parts to the setup of doing Escape production once you have it all set at. Its It's pretty seamless and easy to switch around and punt and split screens and determine what we've what you want to be on the screen at any given time
Amir Taaki - (Bitcoin) Revolutionary
"Hey everybody. Welcome to show eighty-six on Kripa voices from Latvia joined by a very special guest from Catalonia. Amir Taki many words can be used to describe a mere a programmer. Entrepreneur Hacker philosopher revolutionary. He was one of the first developers On the BITCOIN network he founded the second implementation software that worked on. bitcoin called La- bitcoin. He created the bibs system in Bitcoin for wider dissemination understanding of bitcoins upgrades. He's fought Isis in Syria and he continues his work on Activism Freedom As mentioned based in Catalonia today a Amir really pleasure to have you thanks a lot for joining and welcome. Thanks for having me so much to talk to you about here as we start the year in twenty twenty but it it would be good maybe just take a couple minutes at the beginning to to step back really curious. I know that obviously you were Doing many things before bitcoin. Many things no perhaps quote unquote after Bitcoin but those early days in Bitcoin. You know you're on a first people looking at the code. It would be really interesting to maybe here just the story to when you first heard about it started working on it and what was kind of the ethos like back then when I started working on Bitcoin yes I was like a a bunch of these undergrounds internet movements to do with technology. You have the Free Software Movement cryptanalysts on a kiss movement. This libertarian fringe. They're they're like really small small groups of people we've really kind of radical visions the kind of very persistent. Bitcoin was kind of confluence of the and I've been linked with these communities as well for a for a long time and when I when I found bitcoin in ause looking for something that was very functional. Wanted see not be able to build. Actually I wanted to be able to build a distributed gaming websites simply because gaming is owned by John Cartels but when I when I found bitcoin it was it had like this already old looking web. Page the might have looked like it was from nineteen ninety-seven the pretty bad designs and It was on source forge dot and saw dot net you. Can you can find all sorts of crazy projects on their back in the day. I remember I once founded video game which was like addressing park video gaming except the hot the computers and you could like punch ensure any war it would have every good dinosaur. Did you could like drive vehicles while that sounds incredible but but that knows no source Scott. Because there's a lot of these projects on sauce for somebody has like a cool sounding idea and they they click may create the project but they never actually write any code or they write some code but they lose interest after two days so bitcoin was like very much in that vein when you look to the websites at Bitcoin is a form of peer to peer currency that can't be controlled by governments Munson central banks. So we're like kind of red dog on a road. My is like hey yeah I'll desperation nation. I guess I kind of see because I was looking for something to build my projects waves so I came back to the big Wayne in website and then I go free that code a then asserted nice and strange things and Being a programmer having worked plus plus time Quite easy for me to start reading the code but then I I saw some things and I was like Oh wait. This is kind of interesting when it clipped that was like a mind blowing moment the this thing actually was cracked and I actually was working big itself. The code was it's very much a prototype. It was I I feel like Sushi. He kind of was it was something that he is working on over for many years and even though he wasn't like a lot of people say that here's a great program. He was actually a a great program but he was. You know a guy that was technical might even have been like a physicist or some kind of academic be was kind of Ed like hacking on the code adding Biz commencing bits. I'll until we have this concept of bitcoin walk and night. She if you look look in the code as well there was actually commented section for poker software which is was trying to create this entire community of of inside of Bitcoin was very you know it was it was very principled and every time you went on the forum at the top of the forum would be opposed about the Fed and how the Fed is evil and central buying Sir tantamount to murder so you know there was some fear. Refreshing about about this community was the poor in all of these fringe. Ideas was something new. It was something unique. I think war is kind of at the root of this crypto culture which is why it makes attractive to people that people have been able to to kind of latch onto this subculture but it was. It was a community driven by narrative a Everybody was constantly talking about like the central banks how to take down government control over the money that was that was what kind of gave it drive and we actually find ourselves in the point now where that narrative has not being able to develop people haven't worked on developing that narrative has been work on in like expanding worldview To account for all of the changes happen or the or the Neutra the trends are happening in the last two years the enable the project to continue to have momentum to continue to develop say.

That's W I X DOT COM in. Stay tuned after the show to here are you can take advantage of whic special offer for talking tech listeners apple's iphone six was insanely popular in two thousand fourteen when it was first released but now apple is essentially killing it. I'm Jefferson Graham with U._S._A.. Today you're listening to talking tech. Let me tell you all about it. Now in September apple's going to release the I._O._S.. Thirteen operating system upgrade and most apple customers will download the free software for such features as enhanced photo in video management and editing tools improved privacy controls and all new look to maps but I._O._S.. Thirteen will only work with iphones going back in time to the iphone six s which I began selling in two thousand fifteen so what to do many iphone owners who now hold onto their devices for longer periods of time I'm than they used to have a choice of self-rule other iphone models going back to the iphone seven which was released in two thousand sixteen it can be bought for four hundred fifty dollars the iphone eight six hundred dollars iphone ten not. Not currently for sale but you could pick it up at third parties like best buy Amazon for between eight hundred nine hundred the iphone ten are which is more affordable at seven hundred and fifty bucks or the top of the line iphone ten s or tenants Max Thousand Bucks or eleven hundred dollars and if not new what about used so I checked around Gazelle Amazon and Ebay looking at the iphone eight the most economical was ebay which had them priced between three hundred twenty. Five dollars and four hundred and twenty eight while Amazon had them for between three seventy two four hundred and Gazelle for four hundred four fifty. The eight is the phone that makes the most sense if you're looking to pick up an older iphone the seven is just is too old. You're going to have the same problem that people are having this year with a six and of course apple would want you to know that you need to have the latest and greatest because since the iphone six the iphones have become water resistant they are better cameras and more power. You're what about just waiting for the new model will that's. What many people do they wait for September? When apple historically releases the new editions and of course apple will tell you better camera? They're supposed to be three of them in this new iphone better power and of course just. The latest and greatest and even if you don't buy the new edition but if you wait you'll get at least one hundred dollars off the older model so if you're looking at eight you get a pretty good deal if you wait but I think if you need a phone just pick up the used one. They're clean clean their refurbished. That's what I would do. It really depends on your situation but I definitely would not buy one of anything older than an eight. What do you think listeners? What's your take on by an iphone at this time of the year? I'd love to hear from you. You look for me on twitter where I'm at Jefferson Graham.

Exim Server Vulnerabilities and Exploits
"Hey It's Justin. We're going to be diving into this one in more on this week's episode of poem. This is Paul on a weekly show about questions I hear. From security professionals security engineers in see SOS in stories about how they're protecting their organizations. This show answers questions about all things information. Security FROM TECHNOLOGY TO SECURITY FRAMEWORKS TO BEST PRACTICES. In how to's so first things first. What is an XM server? Xm Is a mail transfer agent used on the Lennox like operating systems. Xm Is a free software. Used by as much as fifty seven percent of the Internet email servers in over the past couple of weeks in it's been noted that a heavy amount of Xm servers are under attack by two separate hacker groups in potentially more in typical fashion. Anytime a new vulnerabilities is released. There is always a person or group that tries to exploit the vulnerability and a wild in this case on June fourth vulnerability exploits. Cb Two thousand nineteen one zero one. Four nine was a security flaw. That was publicly disclosed. The exploit is remote command execution exploit that allows for improper validation of the recipient address in the deliver underscore message function it estimated today that there are between five hundred thousand. Five point four million ex-emperor's currently installed across the Internet the attacks to date takeover unpacked systems. By way of a worm in the compromise. Host will then scan the Internet for other servers in attempt to infect them as well the infected servers to date have been configured as crypto currency. Minors some organizations have also reported that the attacks have created a back door into the Xm servers by downloading shell script that adds an SSh key to the account so how would one identify signatures of set attack. Well according to many organizations by way of twitter the first wave of attacks began on June. Ninth which makes sense. A couple of days after the vulnerability was first announced. According to those reporting the exploits. There are two command and control servers. One of which is known in one of which is reporting from the dark web and the exact location cannot be found for those of you. Listening to this I will include the known command and Control Server address within the show notes. The second type of attack is a little bit harder to identify but basically goes something like this. The attackers send an email with the local part of the message. Crafted to exploit the accent vulnerability using the are cpt underscore to field the XM will then execute the local part in their own user context when received the part of the envelope from will download the nefarious shell script and then executed since most Xm servers run as root any nefarious script is also runs route than it becomes. Thanks for shopping for fresh. Punish so if you think you've been infected by this Xm worm couple security recommendations that you have or that I would have for. You is patch any exempts over that you currently have today. As of this recording the current version is four point nine two if you have any unfamiliar Krahn jobs in your Krahn Neutron Tab that removed them restore legitimate. Krahn jobs from existing.

How insurers use consumers' "big data"
"Jeffrey help us understand what's done with your tax information. Once you get it prepared by this free software. Yeah. Well, not all free is created equal and the real lesson here is that when a product is free. You might actually beat the product. And that, you know, Silicon Valley companies are doing what we now know they do a lot of which is try to collect data grab our data to make money off of it. One of the fastest growing attack services out there. It's called the credit. Karma tax is the one that I focused in on and sort of pressure really understand what they were doing with our taxes when we filed them, and it turns out they are using them to target advertisements to us for financial products, like credit cards and. Hello. And what you're doing essentially when you fill out this tax information. They get to see every little thing about you financially at least for the past year. Yeah. The thing that's really sorta. Notable to me about what credit karma taxes doing the trend starting with pre tax services. It's trying to bring into the world of marketing and into the world if big data analysis some data that previously was not in it. There was really really really private tax data every Mike we all know that Donald Trump is working very hard to make sure the world does not be his tax returns. Now, Silicon Valley wants to be able to take that data and use it for all of its own purposes, which include things like targeting adds to us on on websites and gaining new insights about about are, you know, the the very intimate details of our financial lots. And it's interesting because I think for a lot of people they just assume things are free, and you bring up this point, you are the product for these companies and not only credit karma. But you also have companies like Facebook and Google services may be free. But you're giving over a lot of information. Yeah. What credit karma do is doing is actually similar in certain ways to Facebook's? It is not actually selling our data to advertisers or two banks that data is actually to what it's doing is selling access to us on its website credit communist popular for it's free service. Also where your credit score and your credit reports. And now it's adding to that this tax information and and into its itself for quite a bit of money for people who put his credit cards or auto loan target consumers on that website in very specific ways. So you might be on the credit card, the website and see an offer for that's tailored to someone who might have your particular income. And if you accept that offer credit karma will get paid a hundred dollars or more. Just because you, but that

"Just a little bit because of the if you don't understand the the difference between good new canoe lynn eggs all this stuff is something i picked up here that was a jsoc well i didn't realize this and it's important because we talk about all the time nineteen ninety eight the free software movement was hit by a cooptations campaign designed to separate our software from our philosophy of freedom right that campaign goes by the name open source now the reason you've heard that term so much is that a lot of companies preferred to talk about open source and they wanted the media to talk about open source precisely because that didn't rock the boat it didn't criticised their proprietary software didn't call it an injustice so the companies have put their at their weight behind the use of the superficial term that doesn't raise ethical issues is very pr friendly to say some get his own resource ripe right and they've talked about our work in connection with their slogan so much that most people think that's what i stand for i refused to go normally to any event the uses the term open source 'cause they don't want to feed that error in nineteen ninety to the new system was almost complete one component was missing and then mr torvalds released a program called lynn oxe which did that job so lynn ox fill the last gap in the new system but lots of people got confused and they thought that the whole combination was this one piece lennox so if people say that they're using lennox there are actually using canoe with lynn ups.
