Someone "popular" on the security community on Twitter said to never host your own mail server...

Actually, do the opposite.

-Host your own mail server

-Host your own matrix homeserver

-Host your own mastodon instance

-Host your own DNS server if you can

Just do it securely and follow the good practices

Fight back on the centralization of the web.

A Criminal offered to a tesla
employee $500k to install ransomware their company network - but the employee went to the FBI.

And the criminal(s) got caught.

Amazing story:

Okie doke. Moved my URL shortener linkcho.mp and its associated redirector domain cmp.cx to noc.org for DNS and monitoring.

I have a lot of faith in the guys running that and this is really the only project I have that is critical to people other than myself so it is a good candidate. (to be clear, not involved in any way).

Free 14-day trial. Give it a whirl!

It’s cool that our kids are finally of age that they can start joining our journey @dcid ... our two oldest are starting their internship with @cleanbrowsing, learning about networks, systems and business... 😊

Really happy with the way the NOC.org availability and performance monitoring is working.

See how much #Linux stuff you could learn if you followed the #ManMeBot hashtag?? What are y'all even doing!

ManMeBot has posted 860 Linux commands since he was born. A fun little project I whipped up early in my Fediverse career.

Seeing a few complaints lately about: search.noc.social/

Does anyone else find it useful?

Deciding if I should keep it running or just take it offline, if no on else finds value to look/search for accounts across instances.

Don't be shy, feedback (good or bad) is welcome!

For ISPs and telcos who have had a rubbish day because of the Equinix outage, this should probably be your evening reading.

QT decodedlegal: “Network operators: reporting obligations for reductions in availability”

A quick (but detailed) blogpost on when ISPs and telcos need to notify Ofcom because things have gone badly wrong and stopped working.

"It’s 2 am. Your phone starts to light up like a Christmas tree. PagerDuty is having a meltdown.. your slack notifications are hitting the notification thresholds.. Text messages are pouring in.. And you are sleeping.."

I will have a nightmare today after reading this horror story by @perezbox - happened a few times in the past.

Joking aside, great post showing how you can handle down times via DNS load balancing / failover.

‪Wow, China blocking HTTPS using TLS 1.3 w/ESNI because they can longer read the plain text in SNI fields. Previously used by the GFW for online censorship. What enterprise will be the first to do this? zdnet.com/article/china-is-now

Really good read on how the FBI caught the "twitter hacker".

Bitcoin transactions *might* appear be anonymous, but they can give out enough information & patterns to connect it to someone - specially on a high profile case (well, and bad opsec).

Does your current DNS provider gives you visibility on your DNS traffic?

This is the data for one of our small domains: dnsblacklist[.]org.

Interesting to see that Google is the #1 resolver for it.. or the traffic per hour.. or the full logs..
