"Hackers stuck a 2-inch strip of tape on a 35-mph speed sign and successfully tricked 2 Teslas into accelerating to 85 mph"
It has been interesting to dig into this, the vast #malware body of knowledge has gotten us started, but it isn't the same problem, so similar but different tools are needed.
#TrackingTheTrackers I'm digging into tools these days, #faup provides lookups if a string is a known domain name, and #ipgrep returns all strings that resolve to an IP address. The #ipgrep approach seems much more useful since it doesn't need a pre-prepared list of "known domain names", instead #DNS provides that
One murky area of #FreeSoftware is what the #mirrors do with the all the #metadata they inevitably collect. Big mirrors like https://mirrors.kernel.org/ have no apparent public #privacy #policy.

Our next #BinaryTransparency log is to monitor all the binaries for #Android SDK components that are #FreeSoftware. Those binaries are central to Android development, and #Google has done some strange things with them in the past. Its implemented as a git repo and has a basic JSON API https://gitlab.com/fdroid/android-sdk-transparency-log#readme

The NHS hands over patients data to Telefonica so they can predict mental breakdowns before they happen. We think your mental health should stay between you and your doctor.
The public domain is populated by formerly copyrighted material and material that was never copyrightable in the first place. That second, less glamorous, category—the one of ideas, facts, procedures, laws, etc.—has become highly contested. #CopyrightWeek https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/public-domain-rule-copyright-exception
What if a single parking ticket carried a fine of up to a year's salary? What if there were no way to know consistently how much the fine would be before you got it? Something very close to this scenario is a reality in copyright law. #CopyrightWeek https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/key-fixing-copyright-ending-massive-unpredictable-damages-awards
Some of @google's own findings demonstrate the contempt some manufacturers hold their users privacy and security in
