MGK: nubbins you interested in a graded MS65 casacius 1BTC coin?
nubbins`: what year and holo?
MGK: I can make a thread on btc talk and post pictures if you like, asking only 1.5
MGK: I believe its on 13
MGK: I have to be honest, Idont know much about them. I bought it off of NightOwl about 2 months ago

cgcardona_: *casascius
nubbins`: not too interested in the 2013 brass -- now if you could find me a 2011 series-2 1btc brass, on the other hand...
cgcardona_: high level summary—there are potentially 25101 unspent out of 65,000 ish
MGK: eh well ill save the time taking pics then.
cgcardona_: and then I ran a script to sort them by denomination as well.
MGK: Only have this one left, just sent out my .5 to blazedout this morning
cgcardona_: 6 1000+ unspent coins still out there.
cgcardona_: prob the gold bars I guess though I'm unsure if those were included in the masterlist
cgcardona_: here's the full list https://www.casascius.com/fulllist.txt

cgcardona_: wow +1 to the old man coin
MGK: The crack on the top is from my recliner , it fell in the it and I didnt notice, I reclined it and chipped the top but the coin is still locked in the case, wasnt damaged.
MGK: I like the old man coin too, I just got back from LV about 3 weeks ago and I had to buy a couple.
steven-__: who is that on the old man coin?
cgcardona_: It's a tough one for me because I've not ordered a casasius from anyone other than the source (and then only aluminum ones for promo material alas) so i'm just not sure what I'd do if it wasn't legit (and I promise I'm not calling you a scammer. Just thinking out loud)
MGK: Thats the old man himself!!
cgcardona_: the one and only old man!
cgcardona_: (from pawn stars the show on the history channel)
steven-__: oh I don
cgcardona_: how do transactions like this work? do people just go off of bitcointalk trust scores?
cgcardona_: i've ordered cold wallet kits in the past and went off of that
cgcardona_: *cold storage
MGK: No problem cgcard. I understand your concern and unfortunately theres not much I can do about that besides tell you I got the coin from NightOwl which is a reputable re-seller and was already graded. Ive never been able to actually touch this coin.
cgcardona_: sure—Caveat emptor and all.

cgcardona_: buyer beware indeed.
asciilifeform: lol at folks taking pre-orders for widgets that aren't baked yet
cgcardona_: yea I guess so.
cgcardona_: all the threads that I read say it's a legit product and that the person who got one was stoked.
cgcardona_: but my experience has been hella poor
cgcardona_: i ordered 500 aluminum casascius and they arrived in like 4 days and I got an email
cgcardona_: i ordered this https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/
cgcardona_: and it arrived in like 3 days and I got a personal email from Canton.
asciilifeform: i still don't get, why collect money unless you're ready to hand a widget over
cgcardona_: nothing.at.all from the piper team
cgcardona_: well to take money from people like me I suppose
cgcardona_: hrm
asciilifeform: cgcardona_: isn't 'piper' just a 'raspberry' with bitcoind loaded?

jborkl: why would you pay for that?
cgcardona_: I think it's pretty cool.
cgcardona_: we'll see if/when it arrives
jborkl: a pi would not even run bitcoind worth a shit

cgcardona_: not if you're trying to create cold storage from an air locked box
jborkl: no
asciilifeform: lol!
cgcardona_: heh
jborkl: but I would not put my wallet on a pi either?

jborkl: I will post up the adress tomorrow
asciilifeform: mike_c: you (and anyone) also have access to analogue rng. open a textbook and pick your favourite...
mircea_popescu: cgcardona_ the more formal objection would be that you're trying to construct a bridge through the process of "here are some bricks i found, i wonder which cool way i could stack them together"
mircea_popescu: whilke this approach often creates half-decent "art" (known in this space as lulz) it neve actually makes a bridge.

jborkl: unless I beat it out of you, but that is a whole other story

asciilifeform: beat it out << this is why any apparatus that doesn't include a scram zapper is sad.
mike_c: open a textbook and pick your favourite... << or wait a month and disassemble a cardano.
asciilifeform: mike_c: no need to disassemble. it comes in a clear chassis, with blueprints/sources
jborkl: what is a scram zapper?
mike_c: even better.
asciilifeform: jborkl: a special little gift for folks who want to take your keys by force.
mike_c: it is a countermeasure for rectothermal cryptoanalysis.
asciilifeform: partial countermeasure. like a rifle, it only works if fired.
asciilifeform: i can envision folks telling tales of adventure: '... and then i took my C off its safety...'
mircea_popescu: cgcardona_ nah, to your raspberi pi wallet

mircea_popescu: well, "your". just this idle example you made up obivously.
danielpbarron: i have a piper
danielpbarron: but i got mine last year
danielpbarron: i have since ordered some more rolls of paper and I also have not recieved a confirmation email or shipment
cgcardona_: ok well I guess that's 'good' to hear that someone else hasn't received any confirmation recently.
cgcardona_: at least I know i'm not the only one left hanging.
danielpbarron: i heard the piper guy was at one of the conferences recently
danielpbarron: maybe he's too busy to fill orders
cgcardona_: supply != demand. I smell an opportunity.
danielpbarron: i use it to print 1 mBit slips to hand out
danielpbarron: i had to hack it a little to make it stop printing the ugly extra private key and url at the bottom
danielpbarron: but i'm almost out of paper :<
danielpbarron: it's more annoying to not have the paper than to be ripped off for a little coin
cgcardona_: i'm just erked cause I've been wanting to get my coins off of web wallets. I trust no one at this point pretty much.
danielpbarron: you shouldn't use piper to store large amounts
cgcardona_: blockchain.info is pretty good of course. Coinbase has been all kinds of screwy lately.
danielpbarron: yeah don't keep it on coinbase
danielpbarron: i have had sketchy stuff happen with coinbase recently too
cgcardona_: yea I've been having transactions just get stuck in 'pending' for hours cause of their off blockchain stuff.
danielpbarron: yeah
cgcardona_: the first time it happened I moved all my coins to blockchain.
cgcardona_: i was like 'sketch balls!'
danielpbarron: i accidently double sent a transaction, luckily to someone I knew irl
cgcardona_: wow. no way.
danielpbarron: it said it didn't go through the first time
danielpbarron: gave me an error
cgcardona_: ah I see
cgcardona_: gotcha
danielpbarron: wasn't showing up on the blockchain
danielpbarron: i sent a test transaction of 1 mBit and it showed up no problem, so i sent the original transaction again

asciilifeform: decimation: (as i will detail at a later time) i am expecting the supply chain to be fucked with
decimation: thus, the encouragement for personal inspection & analysis, I presume?
asciilifeform: that. and we intend to switch part vendors liberally.
asciilifeform: Mats_cd03: how long it will take to go from blueprints to production line is not yet known to me
asciilifeform: three months sounds like a reasonably safe, pessimistic figure
decimation: what made you choose "hu bei gold phoenix" for the pcb house? cheap?
asciilifeform: i used a different house before
asciilifeform: american
asciilifeform: it was 35x the cost.
asciilifeform: for roughly the same quality.
decimation: wow
decimation: surely labor doesn't account for that difference
asciilifeform: it's 'the bezzle' again
asciilifeform: at this point nobody has pcbs made in usa except for military contractors
decimation: chinese bezzle is spent on its production industry
asciilifeform: (even they try to go chinese, when they can get away with it)
asciilifeform: don't believe? visit the web site of any u.s. pcb maker. they're all decorated with pictures of rockets, tanks, etc
decimation: I guess this is why it only costs $1 to ship anything from hong kong
asciilifeform: phoenix ships 'for free' (well, rolled into the price at any rate)
asciilifeform: everything seems to go on the very next flight, straight to where it is supposed to go.
asciilifeform: now, i hesitate to recommend them 'for everyone' - all i've had done there, is very simple boards.
MisterE: hope the delivered quality is acceptable
asciilifeform: nothing in this particular product is the least bit exotic.
decimation: so just like the us is willing to pay "abused" mexicans to live in palo alto, china is willing to pay to host your factory
MisterE: what are you making asciilifeform ?
asciilifeform: MisterE: http://trilema.com/2013/snsa-first-product-the-cardano
asciilifeform: MisterE: little widget, co-authored with mircea_popescu
MisterE: out of credits :/
MisterE: cool
decimation: what was your smallest trace pitch? 8 mil?
asciilifeform: yes
asciilifeform: as is traditional
MisterE: it's the super small micro traces that can be problemetic eh?
asciilifeform: not only
asciilifeform: there's the occasional 'via' that isn't
decimation: most board houses specify minimums
MisterE: some ICs requiretraces so close it looks insane
MisterE: ok
asciilifeform: the real bitch is assembly
MisterE: ahh yea
asciilifeform: one can trivially make boards by hand
MisterE: yep
asciilifeform: (i used to. 8 mil and smaller, easy. same process as b&w photography)
MisterE: component insertion is a bitch
asciilifeform: i'd have baked the rng pcbs personally, but on account of them being analogue devices, you can't really characterize them unless you use the same board materials as the final product.
decimation: well, surface mount is a bitch without solder mask
asciilifeform: that too
decimation: well, yeah and the drilling of the holes and inserting of vias would be very difficult by hand on your own board
asciilifeform: i've done it before, when younger and poorer
asciilifeform: but it isn't a good use of time
MisterE: same
MisterE: it's a bitch
decimation: impossible if it's more than 2 layers
decimation: unless you ghetto-stack the boards :)
decimation: did you use orcad or some free cad to design the board? are you a fan of eagle?

But since putting even more people in jail will be prohibitively expensive, a new, streamlined process of dispensing justice will be put into place: the NSA and the Justice Department will link computer systems, and verdicts of fraud and suspended sentences
asciilifeform: will be issued by a computer program, in absentia. In keeping with current practice, both the charge and the evidence will be kept secret. The newly minted felons will be dropped from voter rolls, their passports cancelled, their bank accounts confiscated, and their employment (if any) terminated. They will receive form letters informing them of their sentence but most of them will be unable to read it because

kakobrekla: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=560733.0;topicseen
ozbot: I am going to build a true random number generator ...
kakobrekla: artifexd , asciilifeform
kakobrekla: a well i might have jumped the gun, nothing particularly interesting except for the fact of recognizing the problem.
artifexd: I've learned that the raspberry pi has a hardware rng. My current plan is to build use that. I'll Von Neumann it if necessary. Regardless, as soon as I get one, I'll use the tools asciilifeform recommended to measure the entropy.
asciilifeform: artifexd: see if you can learn why the raspi rng is unsuitable for cryptography.
asciilifeform: (hint: same reason as intel's)
artifexd: Backdoored?
kakobrekla: i wonder what the numbers will show.
asciilifeform: the numbers will show... beautiful entropy
asciilifeform: just as the digits of pi, if run through 'diehard', would.
asciilifeform: no statistical test will reveal a malicious rng
asciilifeform: unless the malefactor is dumb as a brick
kakobrekla: how do you eval such result correctly then
asciilifeform: exercise: encipher a consecutive stream of nulls, with aes, using whatever you want as init vector
asciilifeform: run the result through 'diehard'
asciilifeform: you'll get 'better' stats than any genuine rng.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: the statistical tests are for determining sources of 'natural' bias, not enemy action.
asciilifeform: e.g. a bit in a register that's stuck on
asciilifeform: or, when testing prng, any periodicity in the output
asciilifeform: this and related topics have been beaten to death elsewhere.
kakobrekla: and the diehard is exempt from this?
asciilifeform: 'diehard' is just a collection of statistical tests
asciilifeform: there is no mathematical test for 'evil'
asciilifeform: i cannot emphasize this enough
kakobrekla: so you are saying diehard will show a nice numbers on rpi as well
asciilifeform: it will!
asciilifeform: and on the digits of pi
asciilifeform: and 'e'
kakobrekla: thats what im asking.
asciilifeform: it will show beautiful numbers
asciilifeform: but rpi is still unsuitable for cryptography
kakobrekla: so how do you know, for the particular case of rpi, that it is indeed fucked?
asciilifeform: because you cannot, except at great expense, determine what is inside.
artifexd: Hence your recommendation to build my own?
kakobrekla: im not using it myself but i am curious
asciilifeform: correct
asciilifeform: i cannot in good conscience recommend anything that is presently available for sale
asciilifeform: (this will change soon)
asciilifeform: building rng is not hard, and is educational
kakobrekla: so as of now there is no direct evidence "look here rpi is fucked" just a general concern over all products on the shelfs
asciilifeform: how do you know ... that it is indeed fucked << all crypto hardware, especially of the single-chip variety, is to be thought of as 'guilty until proven innocent'
kakobrekla: but it is (near?) impossible to prove its good
kakobrekla: you might just not see the bug
asciilifeform: it is indeed impossible to prove, with mathematical rigour, damn near anything
kakobrekla: :D
asciilifeform: we don't even know (to this standard of proof) if a pill against rsa requires factoring
asciilifeform has to sleep
kakobrekla: good night
artifexd: Thanks for your expertise!

mircea_popescu: trilema looks for two things to find bots : whether you've actually loaded the page you're commenting on (which can throw it for a loop if the page you load gets expired while you try to comment, but this is indeed rare) and whether youve loaded it very recently (like a few seconds sort of recently).
mircea_popescu: decimation:
mircea_popescu: the real problem is that it makes it impossible to differentiate talented managers of resources from fools who happen to be friends with the bezzle-kings << HARDLY :)
mircea_popescu: this is like saying it's impossible to use the wot
mircea_popescu: in fact, exactly the same problem.
mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 i imagined that's what you probably meant, but i discarded it because it made 0 sense. you don't care what the channel is like, you encrypt the message not the conduit.
mircea_popescu: i can somehow send you email perfectly safely by pastebining it. do the same, alter the firmware to use gpg signed packets.
mircea_popescu: you don't need new hardware for this in any snese.
punkman: you care what the channel is like, or it might just offer up DMA access to the other end
mircea_popescu: that's not the channel :)
mircea_popescu: but anyway, if the thing actually offers dma to all comers, idun see why you'd buy one
mircea_popescu: just you know, redirect as many as you need.
jurov: kakobrekla yes. if someone is in my machine *and* knows what i'm doing on the ethernet port, i'm having bigger problem that some warm wallet
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform orlov definitely has a point there. bnw style stratification is a definite future available.

Namworld: I can speak french too.
keonne: I think something along the lines of 'the french dont get it yet, they think its a thing for crooks and money launderers, but not believing in bitcoin is like not beliving in social networks a few years ago
keonne: and you cannot say that they are different because social networks too deal with transactions (though of a different kind), and indeed social networks will have a big impact on bitcoin

truffles: ho
Chris_Sabian: i know you can do it in bitcoinQT but I dont have access to it right noww
Chris_Sabian: and i dont know where it find it online
robwhiz22: Does anyone know when Mirceau tends to be online?
mike_c: you need to run with -txindex to get access to transactions not in your wallet
truffles: no
mike_c: and rescan the blockchain.
jurov: blockchain.info shows raw tx in advanced mode, no?
Chris_Sabian: so I need access to my wallet at the moment to do it?
mike_c: jurov: it shows the scripts, yeah. https://blockchain.info/tx/df74678b86bdf78656b92a1fd7da70aa35ecba12847decd684485fb0a79e728c?show_adv=true

truffles: bad idea to pm ppl
keonne: indeed
keonne: he asked first, Mircea said no, and then he complained about it
truffles: oh
truffles: more interesting ppl to pm though :D
Chris_Sabian: ok. so if im trying to manually push the transcation via https://blockchain.info/pushtx , were is the raw hex then??
artifexd: https://blockchain.info/rawtx/df74678b86bdf78656b92a1fd7da70aa35ecba12847decd684485fb0a79e728c?format=hex
truffles: keonne u were supposed to say right, i know ure a blast
mike_c: um. blockchain already saw it :)
mike_c: what is the point?
keonne: oh sorry truffles
keonne: i wouldn't know, i never pm'd you
keonne: unless you are also moiety
truffles: i acept all pms
truffles: dunno who that is
Chris_Sabian: ok then. just saw that. I guess that I was confused that blockchain didnt see it because it didn't confirm. :)
dexX7: blockchain.info tends to be broken for some time now
mike_c: well, it's not confirming because no tx fee.
Chris_Sabian: isn't there some room in blocks for 0 fee transcation though? but it would take a long time to confirm though?
keonne: dexX7: whats broken? besides some charts? anything I need to expedite?
keonne: API should be back, we moved over to bitcoinj, and overall things are a lot quicker now. If there is something specific please let me know
dexX7: transactions were missing. not like an unconfirmed as in this case, but also historical ones
keonne: still? I thought we fixed all those
dexX7: hm
dexX7: not sure, if this is still an issue
dexX7: but it was over the last weeks
keonne: I think it has been resolved.
dexX7: ah nice
keonne: yeah it was a major issue
keonne: not in terms of functionality or people losing btc, but in a scaring the shit out of people way
dexX7: and a strange one ;) blockhashes were all fine, but tx count was wrong and as mentioned, txs missing
keonne: yeah the database corrupted, it was a very bad week
keonne: none of us slept very much
keonne: again if you see anything weird, just ping me here and ill get eyes on it asap
dexX7: good to know
keonne: One good thing out of all that, I didn't realize that android wallet users PIN codes are stored on bchain servers. As a result during the outage people weren't able to get into their android wallet with PIN only password. That is totally incorrect, from now on, your PIN will never be sent to our servers, it is hashed and stored locally instead
keonne: or will be
mike_c: Chris_Sabian: yes. just takes longer.
keonne: with that being said, im off for a bit to grab some coffee, later

benkay: i'm not saying that mental health is purely a function of workout frequency. i've been larned better than that by the DSMi. it's just all too frequent that people resort to drugs without actually putting in the work to get their physical health dialed.

midnightmagic: (and did so in between your wallet passphrase rpc command, and whatever you typed next)
Apocalyptic: right
midnightmagic: the leak is minimal
midnightmagic: (so far as we currently know)
midnightmagic: "we"
Namworld: What kind of bug allows anyone to just read the memory?
midnightmagic: it's not just any memory, it's a specific chunk
Namworld: yes, yes, still
midnightmagic: and the answer is, "One that needs patching immediately. If you're on ubuntu: apt-get update ; apt-get install openssl"
bounce: not all of your assumptions are going to be reasonable, actually. ssl is fairly logical when enabling rpc ("instant security" amirite or amirite), but restricting IPaddresses only so if either you have enough clue or someone in your vicinity does. similarly, plenty reasons why you'd leave the wallet unlocked.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 800 @ 0.00014994 = 0.12 BTC [+]
midnightmagic: You have to specifically turn on rpcbind access to the outside world. You have to have specifically taken an action to expose yourself.
midnightmagic: and even if your wallet is unlocked, your privkeys aren't vulnerable. Only (so far) the last rpc command used in the server.

ThickAsThieves: ugh "Actually, what is needed is to leave it as property but add an exemption for the first $X0,000 of gain, which is what other countries are doing, particularly in Europe. That way it can effectively function as a currency, but investors who go long also get favorable tax treatment."
ThickAsThieves: apply this law to specifically what i want plz
ThickAsThieves: wtf does US care whether people go long on bitcoin
mircea_popescu: actually the us needs people long on bitcoin. many of them.
ThickAsThieves: you mena in the same way that a child needs to be slapped sometimes
mircea_popescu: more like in the way a poor farmer with 13 kids needs one in school.
ThickAsThieves: but encouraging people to go long on it, means it eats away at its own financial system, no?
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: upgrading is the only economically rational form of cannibalism.
ThickAsThieves: well i agree, but i doubt the USG would intentionally do encourage it
mircea_popescu: that system is getting et. best you be doin' most of the etin'.
mircea_popescu: who knows, it's like an earthworm. it sorta slugs away but not as a direct result of any of the ganglions.
ThickAsThieves: i can see that much i guess
mircea_popescu: anyway, just sayin'. who's to know really. in point of fact, you can probably find a *state* senator trying to put in a bill on any given topic.
ThickAsThieves: nonetheless, i doubt any of the intent of these IRS rulings or bills is to get people to go long
mircea_popescu: there's probably some trying to put in bills to make women wear burkas
fluffypony: or give ponies an actual place in office
mircea_popescu: i doubt any of this shit can really HAVe an intent in the first place. people, esp on the forum, keep ascribing intent to large organisational actors
fluffypony: I'd vote for that if I was American
mircea_popescu: if it fucking worked that way...
ThickAsThieves: if there's no intent, wtf is a bill?
mircea_popescu: what's el nino's intent you know ?
mircea_popescu: a bill is a product. of a system. like snail trails.
ThickAsThieves: a bill is built, not shat
ThickAsThieves: more like a web than a trail
mircea_popescu: benkay smart hardworking isn't as bad as you think.
mike_c: the intent of a bill with no chance of passing is PR.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i'd say the converse. a bill is shat, not anything else.
ThickAsThieves: mike_c i can see that
mircea_popescu: that's solid too, yeah.
fluffypony needs to watch more House of Cards
ThickAsThieves: but i think bitcoin bills have chances still
mircea_popescu: maybe someone should talk to him, i guess. anyone in his district ?
ThickAsThieves: Ukyo might be
ThickAsThieves: :)
benkay: mircea_popescu: more of a comment on myself than the world
benkay: but you know, any of the two are great to have around, right?
ThickAsThieves: i could see a bill being passed as being closer to "shat"
ThickAsThieves: maybe bills are more like cumshots
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i guess i was thinking more about "passed"
mircea_popescu: otherwise, we two could write a bill in that sense, right now. what of it.
ThickAsThieves: well we were speaking of intent
mircea_popescu: a but unrelatedly, as the possibility of intent in large institutional actors.
ThickAsThieves: but i'll write a bill with you anytime baby. I'll hold your commas, and you can diddle my phonetic abortions
mircea_popescu: there's no such thing, a government/agency/etc is quite incapable of intent.
ThickAsThieves: yeah it
mircea_popescu: supreme court peering into "the intent of congress" is perhaps the largest inside joke in the us legal profession.
ThickAsThieves: 's frustrating
fluffypony: ok so I have a question that has nothing to do with bills
mircea_popescu: fluffypony shoot
fluffypony: if I'm looking to raise BTC-denominated funds privately as a company (angel investing, really) and don't want to go the IPO route in order to at least somewhat stave off the general discovery of trade secrets (for want of a better term), is there a generally accepted way of doing so? proposal has been drawn up already, just not really sure how one goes about finding BTC angel investor types
ThickAsThieves: coins, bills, what's the difference?
mircea_popescu: fluffypony one first gets into the wot.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: already there
mircea_popescu: then that one establishes his credibility, over time.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: beautiful piece - but the fact that the phoundation will still be revered and fellated in the world media tomorrow tells us how firmly the buggers are still in control.
Naphex: i heard BlockChains.info CoinJoin has been stealthing some BTC's lately

Naphex: i heard it around 'town'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and by bob you mean bruce ?
Naphex: messing up their TX tables and getting bitcoins locked in addresses
mircea_popescu: MisterE that bank shutdown/issue seems by and large unrelated to btc in any sense. just part and parcel of larger fin sector chinese woes.

mircea_popescu: midnightmagic actually, it's pretty much all the memory. in 64k chunks, yes, but trivial to map it all out.
asciilifeform: process memory
asciilifeform: (unless poor chumper ran with 'root' privs)
mircea_popescu: all process memory, yes
mircea_popescu: let's not even go into what exactly "process memory" means on windows
tg2: is it only the process space for the webserver?
mircea_popescu: or into how things such as the vidcard can be leveraged for this purpose./
benkay: cavirtex is sponsoring the caconf
benkay: nice
mircea_popescu: tg2 the process memory for the process running the openssl code
mike_c: it is the process space for whatever is handling ssl connections.. so all ur keyz belong to us
benkay: scamhavior universal
asciilifeform: the basics of priv elevation on common os variants is a subject beaten to death elsewhere on the net
asciilifeform: no need to re-tell it here.
tg2: inb4 noobs not using perfect forward
asciilifeform: unless, of course, someone wants
mircea_popescu: exactly. i just include it by reference.
tg2: out of bounds and native c go hand in hand
mircea_popescu: tg2 afaik pfs is so rare you might as well call it exotic
tg2: pfs is pretty easy to set up
tg2: and it has been around for a while
mircea_popescu: nevertheless.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless.
midnightmagic: mircea_popescu: No; that doesn't appear to be accurate. Ask whoever it is who is telling you that to describe how to target specific memory regions, because I'm fairly sure they're wrong.
mircea_popescu just keeps on pasting "nevertheless"
tg2: i'm sure it's adoption will increase in light recent events ;)
tg2: benkay, what was your site
tg2: candiansomething?
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic "There is no total of 64 kilobytes limitation to the attack, that limit applies only to a single heartbeat. Attacker can either keep reconnecting or during an active TLS connection keep requesting arbitrary number of 64 kilobyte chunks of memory content until enough secrets are revealed."
mircea_popescu: http://heartbleed.com/
ozbot: Heartbleed Bug
mircea_popescu: some of teh doods that reported it.
mircea_popescu: tg2 yeah. or maybe it won't.
midnightmagic: mircea_popescu: That is from the heartbleed site. It implies more information is available, but it's information which is sitting in that specific area. It's a busy area, but it's just that specific area.
bounce: and named it, and registered a domain for the name
midnightmagic: It's an abitrary number of 64k chunks, but it's not arbitrary *locations*.
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic this, ~as far as we know~ is probably true.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless.
bounce: if there's multiple code paths you can get there it gets more interesting still
Naphex: gn o/
mircea_popescu: ^
midnightmagic: mircea_popescu: Well the wording in that section is slippery. My current understanding is to vary the information requires being able to manipulate program execution in other areas of the program.
mircea_popescu: at this stage i don't see how any negative statements can really be made.
midnightmagic: The attack is just a heartbeat with a size modifier different; it's an overrun read-only flaw. Unless the attack is expanded to something else, there is no targetting. It's "whatever's sitting 64k behind the heap."
mircea_popescu: but since you can in principle repeat it indefinitely it's in principle anything.
asciilifeform: i specifically mentioned 'openssl' in 'don't blame the mice.' well, nobody want to read a crackpot blog, they will have to learn the lesson on their own arse.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know you're in the footnotes for that reason :)
asciilifeform: and when people realize the actual root of the problem (as eventually must) they will piss themselves.
fluffypony: before I patched our local server this morning (not behind CloudFlare as CloudFlare don't have a node in South Africa) I played around with it
fluffypony: it bleeds tons of cookies from the httpd's memory space
fluffypony: some of them are broken, but enough weren't
mircea_popescu: fluffypony mike_c was liveircing wowmoments with it earlier too
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: I still maintain that the damage from something like this could be reduced by mitigating session hijacking
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: stumbled across it by accident. << haha mike_c you be famous nao.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony there's many ways to mitigate a known attack, by the very definition of "known".
fluffypony: but locking a session to an IP is also fraught with issues, so that's not a good technique
mircea_popescu: the point here is that this attack spent most of the past two years unknown.
fluffypony: yeah I'm not talking about mitigating the heartbleed attack
fluffypony: just mitigating session hijacking
fluffypony: if POST/GET vars bleed that's one thing
Naphex: mircea_popescu: you can basically sniff whole SSL trafic with Heartbleed.
bounce recalls an irc discussion going on 15 years back, where someone speculated that a nsa backdoor might look like "int foo;" instead of "long foo;". and you just can't tell. well, here we have such an innocuous thingy. and you never can tell. but spectacular, that the effects certainly are.
mircea_popescu: Naphex all the poor souls arguing with me over tor's safety a few months ago. awww.
Naphex: just write some code and point it
asciilifeform: ;;google underhanded c contest

mircea_popescu: bounce indeed.
mircea_popescu: im still trying to discern how they got it in.
fluffypony: on that HIGH note, it's bed time here, well as close to bed time as 1:15am is when the wife is fast asleep next to you
fluffypony: cheers all
mircea_popescu: later.
Naphex: imo, definitely a planted bug.
mircea_popescu: no question about it.
bounce hasn't checked the repo, if any. probably should.
mircea_popescu: question is who were the idiots and who were the patsies.
asciilifeform: still trying to discern how they got it in << this is by far the least surprising part. next, what, ask how the roaches got in the kitchen?
Naphex: i got screwed cause i had to compile from source to get ECDH.
mircea_popescu: bounce maybe you're the last guy on the internet that hasn't made copies.
bounce: there was also that = vs == in a linux syscall a while back
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. i'm exactly that sorta guy.
Naphex: so you go compile from source to get ECDH, to avoid stupid encryption restrictions
Naphex: then you get sniffed for all you have
Naphex: i'm guessing that was the logic behind it
bounce: probably not, but last in this channel, possibly
mircea_popescu: anyway, this suddenly makes tor significantly more useful. at least for a few weeks.
Naphex: until 12.00 GMT+2 mostly everything was vulnerable, and as the sploit went public everyone started sniffing everything.
Naphex: atleast that went right.
bounce: when did they move to git from cvs?
mircea_popescu: 2012 ?
mircea_popescu: whoa.
mircea_popescu: actually... they moved just with 1.0.1 didn't they ?
asciilifeform: herr mole couldn't be bothered to learn cvs.
asciilifeform: so, to be kind to him, git, which he was accustomed to.
mircea_popescu: this is fucking it is it ?!
mircea_popescu: holy cow no way.
bounce: apparently 2012-12-30 last cvs entries says timeline
mircea_popescu: this is promising. ty chan, and let it become part of the permanent record : more has been ruined by convenience than by any other sin.
asciilifeform: like germans who carried captured russian 'limonka' grenades by their rings.
asciilifeform: (german grenade had a convenient, almost identical ring that wasn't attached to the pin)
asciilifeform: very convenient.
Naphex: https://web.archive.org/web/20130202155024/http://www.openssl.org/source/repos.html - move to git
