    Possible MITM attack on wifi hotspot ?

    So the certificate i accepted is only to ensure the connection is secure between me and the hotspot ? The owner can't use it to decypher my web traffic and play my data again on the website i am trying to reach ?

    Possible MITM attack on wifi hotspot ?

    Ok so at work i have a wifi hotspot, they ask you to auth via web proxy. In order to get it to work i had to install a certificate. One of my coworker told me my https requests made trough this proxy are compromised by this certificate that could allow the hotspot to MITM if it wanted to. Is...

    Debian 10 and Firefox 91.6 ESR VS. The Current Version of Firefox >SOLVED

    You can simply use the flatpak and the flat daemon will look for update 15 min or so after each start. Diff update will happen behind the scenes.

    DNS over HTTPS providers - Firefox ESR

    Honestly all 3 options are fine; - Cloudflare for a straight in replacement of regular DNS - NextDNS seems to have adblock list at the dns level, it can be great but don't forget that it can break some bloated sites - Last but not least you could use any other DOT (Dns Over Tls) provider, maybe...

    Arco linux "Tweak Tool" lets you install and select any and all of the desktop envorments! its awesome!!!

    Yeah the arco project is great, never tested it firsthand but the philosophy is good. I really like to learn so it's really appealing to me but sadly i stopped distrohopping and don't have much time currently. I find that arco is closer to the truth arch is trying to achieve, they pave a way...

    New to Linux which distro to be used for Lenovo ideapad 130-151kb

    Ubuntu might be just the right option for you. Going with a well known distro for the first time really helps other to find solutions to your problems. Take your time to get used to linux and then you can do something a little harder every day if the fun is there to you.

    [Solved] HALP. constant errors when installing vpn via terminal on ubuntu

    Ok so i tried downloading the file from the same place as you and the name of the file is different. It seems they released a new version. The new name is linux_op25_udp_v4_AES256GCM_AU_in_ci.zip so you should run sudo unzip -j linux_op25_udp_v4_AES256GCM_AU_in_ci.zip instead of sudo unzip -j...

    [Solved] HALP. constant errors when installing vpn via terminal on ubuntu

    In the screen you do not download the config file like in the tutorial. Did you run the commands again to show us the error prompt or did you forget to run: sudo wget --content-disposition https://www.perfect-privacy.com/downloads/openvpn/get?system=linux before the unzip command

    Weird problem with almost all bittorrent clients

    Not every distribution of course. Hell some of them are still using replacement for systemd (void, devuan...). But it is way easier for everyone to use flat. Easier for devs, easier for users, easier for distribution maintainer. So it only makes sense that slowly and steadily it will be used...
