I’m traveling around at the moment. Today I was at a hacker space in a nice big town at the coast. I met a girl hacker team. They only hack bank accounts of male managers and steal 23% of the money. As you all know 23% is the unadjusted gender pay gap. Now they build up a center with this money, where the managers could win their money back. They have to do a challenge there against women to show that they are 23% better. If they are better than 23% they will get all their money back. If not they will only get the percentage they’re better as the women. The money that’s left over goes into sex changes for poor women, who need a better salary.
|Configuration||Set “Block mode” to “block readout API”.|
The canvas fingerprint of your browser results from your operation system and configuration like installed fonts. It works by exploiting the HTML5 canvas element. When a user visits a website with canvas fingerprinting, their browser is instructed to draw a hidden line of text or 3D graphic that is then converted to a digital token. Little variations in the rendering of the installed graphic drivers and used GPU can be used for the tracking.
Please visit https://browserleaks.com/canvas before you install the add-on.
You can see my setup below, which is analysed from the canvas fingerprint of my browser:
Linux / Fedora / Firefox
Even if I use a user agent switcher, it won’t change anything.
After installing CanvasBlocker you will have a random canvas fingerprint with the default configuration. This isn’t good for your privacy, because an individual unique canvas fingerprint will be like a red light in the log files.
Set the configuration to block readout API. This is the best configuration for your privacy, because you can’t leave a canvas fingerprint. The server log can’t see if you are using no JavaScipt, a text browser or the CanvasBlocker. You can deactivate the checkbox for show messages, too.
This browser is configured correct and don’t have a canvas fingerprint.
I made a liste of some add-ons to increase your security / privacy online: click here for the list!
I will introduce each add-on with an article in my blog and explain how to use it. If you’r missing an important add-on please leave a comment.
Most companies castrate their internet access for their employees with a firewall and proxy. Normally only port 80 and 443 are open, which means no access to the xmpp port 5222. With this instruction you can tunnel through the firewall to use special xmpp servers. The magic feature is called BOSH and some fairy dust.
First of all you need a xmpp account with the BOSH feature. Click on the BOSH-URI before you register an account. If you get a 404 error, then contact the administrator of the server or choose another server. Sometimes the administration of the servers is poor.
You can choose a server from this list:
|trashserver.net||https://trashserver.net/http-bind/||Register here: Web|
|jabberpl.org||https://jabberpl.org/http-bind-xmpp/||Register via client.|
|wiuwiu.de||https://wiuwiu.de/http-bind||Register here: Web|
|patchcord.be||https://patchcord.be/http-bind/||Register here: Web or via client.|
The next thing you need is the xmpp client Gajim. Enter your login data for your account.
At the account configuration choose the tab connection.
The default configuration is here none. Press the button manage on the right of the combo box, which is set to none to configure the BOSH connection.
In the next dialog add a new entry at the bottom. Name it your-server-name + BOSH and choose in the combo box under the name: BOSH. The BOSH-Adress must be set as shown in the table above. Try port 80 or 443.
If only the firewall was your problem, then you are finished now.
If not, you have to set the proxy, too.
There is a checkbox for HTTP-Proxy in the dialog, where you set the BOSH data. Choose this checkpox and enter the proxy data. Enter the autentification, if needed.
If this works, then you are done.
If not, we need a special program to tunnel through the proxy called: cntlm
Install cntlm and enter your data into the cntlm.ini – see here. The default port is 3128. Set the Proxy-Adress in Gajim to 127.0.0.1 / localhost and the Proxy-Port to 3128.
Advanced features for encryption.
Install the plugins called OTR and OMEMO via the Gajim plugin dialog.

If you know more servers with BOSH, please write a comment!
On basic principle of the hacker ethic is decentralization. So please don’t use all the same server. Only one server can easily be monitored or censored, by taking down the server.
Here is a list of XMPP servers, which can be also accessed via the Onion:

If you know more servers, please write a comment!
[UPDATE] 2017-03-19 – Added some new servers to the list. My thanks are going to the readers for their input.
[UPDATE] 2017-03-26 – Added two new servers: metalgamer.eu and jabjab.de. Thanks for the input.
[UPDATE] 2017-05-21 – Added a new servers: evil.im. Thanks for the input.
[UPDATE] 2017-11-13 – Deleted some obsolete servers.
We all know the #zombie #apocalypse movies but forget them for a moment. A zombie is someone, who has wealth and power but is morally underdeveloped. He’s trying to infect others with wealth or power. They exploit people with the prospect of wealth. But they are also stupid, because they destroy their own planet. We know where the meat comes from and how the animals suffer and we eat it anyway. We know the conditions under which our electronics and clothes are made. As long as you benefit from the system you are a zombie 😦
