Causing bad things to happen to Twitter users is going to make the guy more popular than ever.
 
2022-11-27 5:53:00 PM  
Well, all the more reason to be glad I never went for any of the Twitter InfoSec positions.

Golly I can't believe Chad Loder was part of the expozhay and got banned for some ridiculous technicality.

Elmo knows all about this.

I can't believe Elon is selling that much data for a measly $30K.
 
2022-11-28 1:56:16 AM  
The article just summarizes that the stuff that was for sale in August is dumped for free now.

You know why? Because everyone is getting fresher data from inside and is for sale now.

Lol. I clicked on a link about Elon and it failed. On refresh, it was gone.

Some poor modmin was upset about a link that mocked Elon. Oh noes. :(

The breach happened back in January, so just like with prior contractor invoices, Elon's not responsible 'cause it didn't happen on his watch

That's either a bug or they're screwing with some people's accounts. It's still up but I've seen multiple posts intermittently throw an error or display a message saying the post didn't exist. If you keep refreshing it eventually shows up.

i wanted to give a response, but holy f*ck the bullsh*t I had to navigate to get to this point. Fark is A-OK with you posting Nazi bullsh*t. and they'll claim they're not, but they'll leave Nazi b*ullsh*t while removing people criticizing them. I've gotten multiple posts removed for it, but the people posting actual Nazi sh*t, nope, their posts are still there. I'd give links, but then my timeout would increase.

Don't you dare question the Republican Fark hierarchy. That's not allowed here. They'll likely be along shortly to tell you how I'm totally wrong. It's laughably predictable. And because I'm pointing it out, I wouldn't be surprised if nothing happens to me, that way they can claim "See, we doin't do anything!" It's laughable bullsh*t.

He appears to do valuable work but only after Elon Musk have I ever read such a punchable name as Chad Loder.

I know if one of my DB nodes somehow has a sync delay it can cause that behaviour as you bounce around servers that may or may not have the data, and when you know it's wrong you keep hitting refresh.

I wouldn't be surprised if cracks were starting to form across the many Twitter DB nodes.

Could possibly be related to Kurt Loder. Don't hate him simply because of his name.

Now, see, due diligence would have caught something like "we're about to be sued to hell 'cause of a massive hack."
 
2022-11-28 6:50:57 AM  
And Elmo's response? Ban the guy collating the data from the leak.

Look through the approved politics tab headlines. Do it now. How many of them are pro Republican? Normally, it's zero per day.

Uh, can you point to a news story this century that could in any way be construed as "positive" that involves only Republicans?

FTA: The data consists of scraped public information as well as private phone numbers and email addresses that are not meant to be public.

2 factor identification is so secure and snuggly warm!

Yeah, this is weird. Because I've had multiple twitter accounts with burner emails without a problem.

2FA for a non-financial service seems excessive. Maybe blue checks?

Because you could already scrape e-mail addresses using the "forgot pw option", as well as 4 digits of the phone number.

So knowing the area code, and the last 4, you could start to search online for it.

The e-mail would show T****@T****.C**

Someone used it to prove that a government employee was campaigning on the government dime because they were using their government email as the contact information.

This was just identification and authentication failure on the side of Twitter pre-musk.

Speaking of harvesting, I'm pretty sure someone could clone the API/Dev site with some title like "operation dumbshiatvikingmeme" that you could convince people to sign up to get access to an automated reporting script.

Tell them it takes 24 hours after inserting account info and password- like the dev access requests. 

And then just harvest username and passwords of people who were trying to mass report progressives like that list that was floating about. Tell them it only works if they disable 2FA, etc.

Then you know, chaos.

Trespassing at a minimum, the law broken is simply accessing the data and computer crimes are serious business. In the real world, steal a donut or rob an old lady and you get arrested but eventually a slap on the wrist and a forbidden donut. Since this is a computer crime, if you even walk into the room the donut is in it's damn near life in prison and banned from using a computer ever gain even though technically nothing was lost. Data is gold. Ask Edward Snowden, oh wait he's banned from America.

Shruggie, I clicked the link and I understand the idea of who Kurt Loder is, but this is the first time I've ever heard of him in my life.

So not sure if being Kurt's brother is an inside joke, a good thing or a bad thing.

He used to be an MTV DJ person back when MTV was a new thing (1980s).

I don't have any evidence of moderation to present. Although I can assure you there is plenty of moderation against conservative posts as well.

I can show the approved headlines look like they were approved by Mother Jones admins.

I've had several comments deleted for "responding to deleted comments." Only problem is, I did not respond to anyone, I did not quote anyone, they were just stand alone comments. The one thing in common with all those posts? I criticized conservatives.
