i fucked up my dns shit so bad on my pc last night trying to set up a secure dns solution that its now defaulting to the link-layer llmnr protocol to do name resolution whihc is scary and bad, so i jsut ip link set wlan0 down na mean. ill fix it soon its just gonna be a big thing. i dont have cash for a pihole so im going to do something even MORE psycho and set up a dns server inside a chroot jail on one of my computers (tbd).

i kind of just mentally put together how dns works last night for real and i'm very excited to explore the alternate namespaces, such as those provided by the chinese state-funded yeti server, but also, opennic, which provides a ".epic" domain lmfao, so im going to set up two forward zones.. and maybe more.

here's some good news on yeti:

The Yeti-DNS project is supported by Japan’s WIDE project, Vixie’s own collaborative engineering and security project TISF, and the Beijing Internet Institute, a self-proclaimed private research organization affiliated with the Chinese BII Group, which works with Internet governance bodies and many of the largest technology companies in the world on networking. The Yeti Project’s research agenda will explore questions around IPv6-only operation, DNSSEC key rollover, renumbering and scaling issues, and multiple zone file signers.


epic. but also, this rootserver operator dude named vixie sounds like a bad ass

Having reached out to operators in BRICS countries about participating in YETI-DNS, Vixie said, the project reflects his view

…that if some country decides some day that ICANN cannot be trusted, and they want to create their own Internet DNS system, I want them to have the necessary expertise and competence and awareness of tradeoffs, in-country, to pursue their own sovereign course.



Wait a minute. What does it mean, “pursue their own sovereign course”? Is Vixie encouraging a DNS aligned with national territories?


Vixie’s claim that he “consulted” with BRICs turns out to be a bit of an understatement. In 2014, Vixie worked closely with the state-owned registry of China (CNNIC) to promote a new IETF standard that would allow the number of authoritative root servers to increase beyond the current limit of 13. As a matter of technical scalability, that may be a good idea. The problem is its linkage to a country that has long shown a more than passing interest in a sovereign Internet, and in modifying the DNS to help bring about sovereign control of the Internet. For many years, China has wanted its “own” root server. The proposal was not adopted by IETF, and its failure there seems to have prompted the formation and continued work of the YETI-DNS project. We wonder how much of this is being funded by China.

anyways, i just went to buy soda at the liquor store and wehn the toadies- possum kingdom was over it started playing like a 10min ad for cloudflare that was some dude who worked for NATO talking about why they used it. the dnsmen are on to me :(

gussri, do you have any advice on how to detect malicious/snooping programs on a linux machine or router?



it's an art more than a science or anything, because there are so many routes for compromise and a lot of the time you might never have more than a suspicion or very indirect evidence, not to mention the difficulty of then tracking down who you've let in (the truth of security is it's impossible to keep everyone out, or anyone even, it's about who you let in, how, why, and what you do with whatever the intruder's request / info they reveal is). i'm fairly certain i've been pwnd actually but uh, you know? i'm on a lenovo x220 and the most firm evidence i have atm is suspicious traffic i can't seem to get rid of through software following a mysterious reboot and a week-long internet outage. followed by being kicked from my local isp for at least a month. and then a curious new listing for a qualcomm 3g modem device in my ip addr interface listing. by the way, sometimes this modem device is referred to as a huawei gobi and at others, a qualcomm gobi. i hope i'm calling home to where i think i am , at least.

anyways to answer your question, i'd start by checking netstat / ss to see what's connected to your machine via tcp and if there are any listening udp sockets or anything and where they're bound to. if you see anything weird, say, unusual http connections, ps aux / lsof and pipe the pid/port to grep. next step is strace, and possibly a packet sniffer like tcpdump or if you prefer, wireshark. watch the patterns of the connections, whois / google whatever ips / hostnames show up. about:network in firefox config can be useful as well, if you use that browser. if you think your machine's been tampered with, try and do this from live media, because your utilities could have been replaced too- though if it's been fucked with thoroughly enough that won't help you either, lol. there's probably more but that's a pretty good start right there. just keep googling my friend

#308
after some thought i think one of the routers in our network has probably been hit by some kind of dns tampering/arp cache poisoning, repeatedly lol, but i'm not the one in charge of the router security, my roommate is. all i can do probably is configure my own dns stuff

edit: it could not even be the router here of course. could be some other computer somewhere else. im gonna watch closer & query traceroute a bunch

if i install win7 on a sub-200 price point lenovo laptop would you be able to point me in the direction of the malware i need to download and execute from baidu to get xi jinping looped into the system. thanks

I mean it seems like there's 3 answers: 1. have us secrets / military training which you can transfer to the PLA in a more tense environment 2. have conventional training and apply to some chinese job as a citizen or 3. move to china and lean the lanuage/skills/training there. personally my plan is 2.

It seems like the reasonable answer is that you work to build the anti-imperialist movement within the borders of the us and provide support to liberation movements

Anything else is eat pray love wrapped in a red flag

as a first-worlder living in the heart of the empire, the most effective thing one could do is start a cryptocoin that will be tied to a blockchain that calculates its beneficiaries by drawing from the U.S. State Department's list of terrorist organizations and proportions the percentages based on the number of U.S. soldiers each one has killed.
