I recently was in a third world country which is know as a police state with heavy cyber surveillance. I noticed that brand new smartphones came in a box that had a nice holographic seal showing the map of that country. (To be specific, it was a Samsung A8, a legitimate one—not counterfeit.)
Is there a chance that certain smartphones sold in that country could have some built-in hard/soft/firmware to facilitate state surveillance? Is that seal just used for benign branding purposes (akin to the Maple leaf on McDonald’s logos in Canada), or does it betray a more sinister arrangement between the manufacturer and the regime?
Lubuntu 18.04.1 includes the lightweight but surprisingly powerful GUI file manager PCManFM 1.2.5, which can list the files within a .rar, but fails to extract or display them. Error messages (e.g. Huffman coding error) imply an inability to decode the main body of the .rar, though the directory is readable.
I have created an AD group called “Local Admins” which I’ve added to the built-in “Administrators” group of my servers through a GPO. I have verified that on the servers, “Local Admins” is now part of the “Administrators” group as intended. I’ve been able to remote into the servers with the sole user that is part of “Local Admins”.
Fast forward a few days later and I created a new AD user, and added it to the “Local Admins” group. I’m unable to remote into the servers with this user. I get the “not authorized for remote login” error message. It only works if I add the new user directly into the “Administrators” group (shouldn’t it work already through my “Local Admins” group?).
I’m sweating blood to find any product or how-to to make time lapses with my Nikon P900. It seems to me, that my only option is to use the built-in time lapse modes, which sucks. I mean, it shoots in 2MP and the result is horrible. I’ve tried the interval mode as well, but the smallest interval is 30 seconds. I need simply a tool, to remotely shoot a picture like every 3 seconds and I gonna make a video after that from the separate images. The problem is I neither was able to find any shutter release compatible with P900 that can do this job. I’ve contacted a photographer shop and they also said that there is no compatible product for P900. Can you recommend me anything please?
I found out about the problem of our brother in the forum and I was interested in the question: maybe you know what social networks offer a built-in mailbox? How is it in terms of security? A worthy alternative to Gmail? And what these sites specialize in?
