"Detecting the use of "curl | bash" server side" (as opposed to curl & save to a file).

The European Commission has published their Free Software inventory yesterday. It is interesting to see that 99% of desktops have Firefox installed. But the 98% of "Info-Zip" installations are actually even more interesting. They demonstrate exactly what the purpose of the #FOSSA project is: to show how much we rely on Free Software in our #infrastructure. That is why the EU must contribute to Open Source. https://juliareda.eu/fossa/

I just received a free android tablet at a conference in Germany -- every attendee got one.
I went through all the setup screens without entering any personal information. I entered a fake name. No account. I set the language to "English (Germany)". At no point did I explicitly enter anything that shows that I am Portuguese.
I open a Dutch website on the Chrome browser. And guess what, the browser proposes to translate the page to Portuguese.
