Today is the anniversary of the testimony I and other members of the l0pht gave to the US Senate in 1998. It was the first time the US Govt. publicly referenced “hackers” in a positive context. The coverage was national and even international. Come behind the scenes. /Thread

There’s going to be an algorithmic bias bounty competition at DefCon this year. Happy to see Twitter engage more proactively with META. Computers are only as impartial as the societies and people that program them. Vigilance is key.
It's been hard to keep quiet on this ... excited to announce Twitter META will be hosting the first *ever* algorithmic bias bounty competition @aivillage_dc @defcon. Details of the challenge coming later this week. In the meantime...

Always be hacking! @ghidraninja lands it again Try also: Piping network interfaces to audio on a quiet network as a good DDoS / NIDS. A loud hard drive in a computer client computer makes a good local host IDS. ;)
The binary analysis tool of choice for anything with a speaker :)

It's the end of Pride month, so perhaps it's a good time to hear from some LGBT+ security folks (including me).
Listen to Ep 219 of the #podcast now to hear @LeaKissner, @alissaknight, @webjedi, & @chris_kirsch share their experiences as #queer #cybersecurity professionals in celebration of #Pride. zcu.io/U6KC

Get your shots, people. If you still haven't, they are safe, they are good. I haven't posted about it, but someone I liked very much died *last fucking week* of COVID, with no known comorbids, he just thought vax was bullshit. He had kids.
“Nearly all COVID deaths in the U.S. now are people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been.” Get. Your. Vaccine. apnews.com/article/coronavir…

A good thread on InfoSec careers (or any careers) from my friend (tweet #3) @lcamtuf. Emphasis on tweet #7: “… own the problem rather than merely logging complaints”. Become known by your contributions rather than your critiques. MPH (or km/h) > RPM
Thread: over the years, I had countless infosec newcomers ask me how to build a successful career in the field. I don't have a recipe for success; but there are several things I learned over the years, and they're a bit different from the usual career advice you hear. (Thread)

Folks in LA/Santa Barbara area: if you see a weird streak in the sky at about 1:10 am tonight (0810 UTC), it's the launch of a Pegasus rocket carrying a secret Air Force satellite
From Vandenberg AFB: There will be a hazardous operation on 13 June 2021 with a back-up day of 14 June 2021. The window is 0109L – 0115L. See graphic for local impact areas.

When my daughter recently needed an ambulance, that’s a *need*, not a luxury. Even with insurance for-profit ambulance companies’ cost is obscene ($2k after insurance). I’m aware of how lucky I am to be able to afford/navigate it and of how many other families aren’t so lucky.

May 19th was the anniversary of testimony I, and colleagues, provided to the US Senate in 1998. In it we even described ways to disable satellites. The next day 90% of pager traffic stopped due to a satellite (Galaxy) going offline. Can’t tell that story, but here’s the trip:

Mini thread, with stats(!), showing the impact prompting has on the amplification of (potentially inflammatory, or misleading) conversations.
Sometimes conversations can get intense in the moment. We’ve been experimenting with different solutions & today we are rolling out prompts that encourage people to pause and reconsider a potentially harmful or offensive reply before they hit send. blog.nitter.net/en_us/topic…

I’m thinking about @dakami a lot, as many of us are, and I thought I’d share a story or two. I’ll log back on in 10 or 15 minutes and talk for a bit.

Thank you to everyone who listened. Dan, you’ll never know how much it meant to me when I learned the small role I played at the beginning of your journey. I felt so much pride every time I read your name or saw your work.

Thoroughly endorse.
I dig this philosophy from @balajis: “Win and help win.” In other words, make sure you’re set up for success while also helping others succeed. Zero sum mentalities are toxic. Win for all mentalities are empowering and liberating. We need more of this. open.spotify.com/episode/68P…
