    We've learned literally nothing from the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020, and we're still dumb as shit as a nation. Which is also why people believe Republicans when they blame this on Biden and the GND, despite like, the GND literally just being an idea right now.

    Sad aside to this, literally had someone sneak into my dads shed and steal his gas can full of gas. Was meant for his lawn mower and they actually went into his garage and stole the gas can.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    And there were plenty of people that won the Darwin awards this past week as well. There was a ton of people that lost their vehicles because they were fucking smoking with those full gas cans and shit. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined, but it is rumored this dumbass in a Hummer, with 20+ gallons of gas in it, was smoking with gas fumes in it.

    I guess Trump supporters don't understand that the liquid gas doesn't catch on fire when gas burns, it is literally the fumes.

    what I was saying is gas stored in a proper container can last 3-6 months without any kind of treatment (sta-bil) With treatment it can last 1-3 years.

    And today in, "Cybersecurity/privacy matters, and people don't quite understand it.", we have Joe Biden's Venmo. Thankfully it's set to private so you couldn't see all the transactions, but after he mentioned it existed it didn't take Buzzfeed long to track it down and get access to his social network through it, which is worrysome. Apparently it's been scrubbed after Buzzfeed reached out to the White House about it, but it's a good lesson in privacy/security even for the President of the United States of America.

    Biden axes two more Trump Executive Times.

    One was the monument garden Trump was planning to fill with statues of Confederate traitors, slavers, and others whose legacy didn't hold up to scrutiny.

    EDIT: I should add, Trump never got funding for the Trump Garden of American Heroes, yes that's what he said he'd call it, and there was never a location chosen.

    The second was Trump's order to review social media protections, which Trump ordered when Trump's tweets that were objective falsehoods were labeled as objective falsehoods.

    Did he do that?

    Darkside ransomware gang says it lost control of its servers & money a day after Biden threat

    A day after US President Joe Biden said the US plans to disrupt the hackers behind the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack, the operator of the Darkside ransomware said the group lost control of its web servers and some of the funds it made from ransom payments.

    “A few hours ago, we lost access to the public part of our infrastructure, namely: Blog. Payment server. CDN servers,” said Darksupp, the operator of the Darkside ransomware, in a post spotted by Recorded Future threat intelligence analyst Dmitry Smilyanets.

    “Now these servers are unavailable via SSH, and the hosting panels are blocked,” said the Darkside operator while also complaining that the web hosting provider refused to cooperate.

    In addition, the Darkside operator also reported that cryptocurrency funds were also withdrawn from the gang’s payment server, which was hosting ransom payments made by victims.

    The funds, which the Darkside gang was supposed to split between itself and its affiliates (the threat actors who breach networks and deploy the ransomware), were transferred to an unknown wallet, Darksupp said.

    This sudden development comes after US authorities announced their intention to go after the gang.

    In two conferences this week, on Monday and Thursday, US President Biden himself came out and said the US would go after the group after one of its attacks crippled a major fuel transport pipeline that impacted half of the US East Coast, leading the US to declare a state of national emergency in order to ensure gasoline was delivered to impacted regions.

    “We have been in direct communication with Moscow about the imperative for responsible countries to take decisive action against these ransomware networks,” President Biden said in a press conference on Thursday.

    “We are also going to pursue a measure to disrupt their ability to operate,” he added.

    President Biden’s statement also came after Bill Evanina, former Director of the US National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), also said last week that the US intelligence community was very likely respond to respond to the brazen Colonial attack in a disruptive manner.

    The news that Darkside lost control of its servers and that a major cybercrime forum was banning ransomware ads, all happening within a span of hours of each other, also had an effect on REvil, arguably considered today’s biggest ransomware operation.

    In a post quoting Darkside’s (now-deleted) statement, REvil spokesperson Unknown made an announcement of their own and said they also plan to stop advertising their Ransomware-as-a-Service platform and “go private”—a term used by cybercrime gangs to describe their intention to work with a small group of known and trusted collaborators only.

    Additionally, the REvil group also said that it plans to stop attacking sensitive social sectors like healthcare, educational institutes, and the government networks of any country, which it believes could draw unwanted attention to its operation, such as the attention Darkside is getting right now.

    In the case of any of such attacks carried out by any of its collaborators, REvil said they plan to provide a free decryption key to victims and stop working with the misbehaving affiliate.

    Furthermore, hours after REvil’s announcement, the operators of the Avaddon ransomware also announced similar updates to their program, with the same clause barring ransomware groups from attacking government entities, healthcare orgs, and educational institutes.

    While we may never know who or what is driving these changes among ransomware gangs, it is pretty clear that the Colonial Pipeline attack and its aftermath appears to have broken the camel’s back, and US authorities have started applying some sort of pressure on these groups.

    umm, most of that information they found, if not all of it is public information you could have found out without venmo.
    what is the security risk?

    Should he give up his paypal account too?



    At a first glance, disclosing connections among people may seem trivial: Who cares if you know whom someone is connected to? But these public connections can be used to expose very private information. Using the public friend list, for example, a motivated fan was able to figure out who won a season of The Bachelor.


    Maybe Biden knows the winner of the voice this season!!!

    It's a very obvious record of whom he may likely be giving money to in some capacity. I'm sticking with the EFF and these folks -

    “If somebody wanted to map out the activities of the first family, they could just look at their activities on the social network and figure out what the family is up to by looking at what the what their associates are doing,” Vahid Behzadan, the director of the Secure and Assured Intellect Learning Lab at the University of New Haven, told BuzzFeed News. “I assume that the extended associates, like friends, grandchildren, don’t enjoy the same level of security as the first family, and so it may be easier to monitor them passively through their network.”

    By finding these accounts, a person could physically stalk the president, his aides, or members of his family, creating a physical risk for the White House. There are also espionage risks. A spy or political opponent could also use this information to find out personal information about those close to the president, or to pose as a member of Biden's inner circle and communicate with the president or others under false pretenses. There are other possible consequences. A connection between a White House official and a journalist, for example, could potentially expose a whistleblower.

    What if the gas station in question is unmanned? Hard to shut it down if it's only pay with card at the pump options.

    well the same can be said for releasing photo's of his extended family, putting them at risk....i just don't see the huge problem here...
    with what information is available on the internet it seems moot that this "hack" would release anything new..

    the only risk is if someone is stupid enough to use it for bad reasons, which we have seen a particular republican was actually that stupid

    Russia would not really benefit from higher gas prices in the US.
    Only oil prices. they don't export gas to us or have any russian owned refineries in the US.

    It would be the exact opposite. Way too high prices would in relation cause lower demand, thus less oil needed.

    So let's set this up. I think honestly if this came out when Trump was in office, which one sorta did a few times I believe, we would cheer this.

    Not to go deep into Trump but again most would agree Trump was of a threat. Yet they found over 100 generals to make this statement.

    I guess in the end we shouldn’t give any credence to these generals. Oh and amazing how political they get after retirement l. Their right but read the article it's Fox News buzz words.
    From the article

    "We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776,” they said. “The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty."

    So yeah, that gives you an idea of the caliber of the people who 'signed' off on this, these people are fucking insane.
    Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
    You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.
