There is nothing wrong with switching from a self-hosted postgresql to a hosted version. Or to host your website on a web space.

But to act as if cloud providers would ride on unicorns and do the impossible, is just utter nonsense.

And looking at IPv6 on major cloud providers make one question the competence of the expert teams…

Kann jemand @rufposten helfen? Sollte möglich sein. Selbst schon gemacht. Mir fehlt leider die Zeit. 😑

"I'm doing research on a app for a news story. Is there any hacker out there who is able to help breaking the custom certificate pinning of an app (e.g. using a custom frida objection script)? You should be able to decompile the app and then find and block/rewrite the custom function doing the pinning by script injection.
I have some (although little) budget."

A few observations about digital vaccination certificates:

* It's really just a static QR code, you can import it into your app, but you can also make a picture of it and save it into your phones gallery. Or carry the original paper copy around.
* This unfortunately means it's easy to "steal" other peoples certificates by just scanning their code when they have it open in their app.
* The certificate will not be for your name but will that *always* be verified?

The Matrix room is bridged to #k9mail on @liberachat; for those of you who still prefer IRC.

See you all there 👋

Protipp zum neuen Android-Firefox: Wenn ihr lange auf den Tabzähler drückt, kommt ein Dropdown-Menü, das es ermöglicht, den Tab sofort zu schließen, ohne nochmal Extrawisch über die Übersicht.
Auch nicht so bekannt: Ihr könnt jetzt durch horizontales Wischen über die URL-Leiste zwischen offenen Tabs wechseln.
