6 platforms in web 2.0?

Hi, a week ago I just bought the GSA SER  and I noticed that in the web 2.0 section, I only have 6 platforms, is that correct?(See image adjunt)

I have seen tutorials on youtube from years for example 2016 and it shows more web 2.0, but it only shows me 6.

Looking for advice on repurposing artwork for multiple social media platforms

Hey guys. I recently took a freelance job as an in-house social media designer and we create new campaigns almost every second day.

I spend a lot of time repurposing campaign artwork for each social media platform. You know – one visual for Instagram, one for Snap, a CRM banner, Facebook, etc. I'm currently making them all separately and it takes so much time. I even need to work late to get them all done on time. I thought maybe someone knows a technique or approach how I could speed it…

Trust in online platforms dealing with virtual goods

I hope this is the right stackexchange for this sort of question. Probably it can be more generalized, but I will explain it using my use-case.
I am implementing an online platform, where third-parties sell virtual goods to clients on a subscription basis. Let’s take for example ebooks as a virtual good in this case.
How can the third-parties trust my platform? How can they know that I don’t cheat with the number of subscriptions I report back to them? Do any solutions exist for this or some papers? I can’t possibly be the first with this kind of problem. The problem is I even don’t know what to search for.
Game theory is also the only tag which I could think of, maybe someone could edit the tags?

Thanks in advance

Cipher suite is different in “client hello” for the same code running on different platforms

I’m facing a “Alert: handshake failure (40)” error when trying to establish a TLS connection. The error only happens when I run the same application on cloud, it works when I run the application on HPG8 server. OS is the same Redhat 7. By checking into the traces, I found that the cipher suite in “client hello” is much less in the error case than the worked case, and the cipher suite that TLS server supported is just missed in the “client hello” of the error case. I want to know what will impact the cipher suite that contains in the “client hello”?

The openssl version is the same (1.1.1d) for both cases, Redhat version has small difference. TLS1.2 is used. The key file and cert file are also the same.

In the code, I’m using SSL_set_cipher_list to set the cipher string as “ALL:!DH:!EXP:!RC4:@STRENGTH”.

SSL_set_cipher_list(ssl, "ALL:!DH:!EXP:!RC4:@STRENGTH"); 

I also checked the source code of openssl, but didn’t find much clue.

Cipher suite in the failure case:

Have ad platforms started surveilling and sharing emails and PII?

I was on a webmastering forum and saw an ad that made a disturbing promise. They claimed that if a person makes a casual visit to your web site, they can obtain that person’s email address, and either send emails on your behalf or supply the email address to you.

I’ve been fighting email spam since ’91 and first sat down at a web browser in ’95. My first thought was “Wow, what a webmaster would do if they could get a visitor’s email address!” But of course web browsers didn’t exactly have a settable HTTP header field of “Email:” (can you imagine!), and in fact, a lot of attention was given to try to preserve user privacy, such as the sandboxing of cookies.

But then, I thought, (using Doubleclick as a paper villain here)

Retailer X gets a banner ad from doubleclick.net. Doubleclick has their own cookie, e.g. DC1234567, and doubleclick also gets a Referer which gives away what page/product you’re browsing, and it’s been tracking your activities this way all over the web, all along.

But then, Retailer X (at DoubleClick’s request) embeds your Retailer X ID number X56789 in the Doubleclick image URL… so DoubleClick is able to tie DC1234567 to X56789. Not too dangerous yet.

As it happens I do business with retailer X and they have my email, mail, phone, credit card etc. Either by gift, sale, or acquisition, Retailer X hands Doubleclick its customer list which links X56789 to harper@example.com, John Doe, 123 Main Street, Anytown USA. Which Doubleclick matches to DC1234567.

It’s been tracking “DC1234567″‘s browsing activity for years, and now boom! It can go back to every site I’ve ever browsed and say “We have the PII of your visitor!” Retailer Y (who I only casually browsed and never gave my info) could literally buy that from DoubleClick and send me a bespoke postal mail with a coupon for the exact things I browsed. Heck, a magazine could just slam me a subscription and start sending me bills.

But then, for 20 years, nothing like that ever happened. I never got one single postal mail. I didn’t even get emails I didn’t sign up for. I couldn’t fathom a technical reason why it wasn’t happening. It seemed to be a gentleman’s agreement or taboo “not to do that”. I figured privacy law like GDPR sealed its fate.

Has something changed?

Now I see this company openly advertising this. And come to think of it, recently I’ve had a couple incidents of getting emails or ticklers I didn’t expect. Has my fear finally become a thing after 25 years?

How does their offering work technically – is it different than I originally surmised back in ’96?

And why only now?

Its been a while! Looking to automate a specific list of websites, not platforms – Any GSA software.

Hello All.

So its been 5 years since i was active on here! 

I am no longer building a quarter of a million links a day, or breaking my brain writing SVM captcha breakers, but am still very much into SEO.

I am now looking for a tool that can be used to automate custom sites, primarily for building business citations.
I raked my brain for the stuff i used back in the blackhat days, but most of the stuff is dead (what happened to sick submitter?).

Then i remembered that Sven was working on a platform trainer back in 2013 – does that exist now?
If it does, is there a tutorial anywhere?

If not is there any other GSA software, or 3rd party, that people can recommend?

I did waste a bit of time trying to write something myself with chrome headless but i would rather just pay for something that works and get on with the job in hand.

A quick note that i am not looking for a service like whitespark, Marketeers centre – i use them already but have a slightly blackhat idea brewing that will require a volume/cost ratio that only software can provide.

Cheers

Where do I find platforms that GSA-SER doesn’t already have engines written for?

I am curious about writing these engine scripts.
If you don’t know, SER has a scripting language GSA developed just for the task.
I’ve had other learning tasks ahead of this, but it seems about time I start exploring the engines.
I guess for my first try, it would be best to create an engine that already exists, and then see how close I came to doing it as it should be, since there is a guide/answer already there to check with!
But, just thinking ahead…once I am familiar with how this works, where do i source new platforms from that require a new engine? What are some methods that work to accomplish this? Thanks…

Dev Stream Platforms?

Twitch is arguably the de-facto platform for streaming game related content. in researching this topic, several developers already proudly share some of their development, and my press releases through that platform.

my question is this: if streaming, and community involvement are going to play a larger role in a game’s development, what are the best platforms to use?

I ask because while Twitch would seem the obvious candidate, and multi-casting is a thing, several active streamers iv’e discussed the topic with have told me that Twitch is not the place to have any kind of constructive feedback, or discussion. While there are certainly exceptions, this is giving me pause from just defaulting to that platform. A center point of the idea is to bring players, users, and other devs, casually into the development sphere, to let the community feel like they helped make the game, and give aspiring devs a peer through the veil in order to better understand development as a process.

Thank you for your time.
