> Did the #CIA plan to kidnap and assassinate #WikiLeaks founder Julian #Assange during a shootout in London? That is one of the findings by Yahoo News that details how the CIA considered abducting and possibly murdering Assange while he took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. More than 30 former officials say former CIA Director Mike #Pompeo was apparently motivated to get even with WikiLeaks.

Welcome @gitea to the fediverse on their very own instance!

One of the most absurd ideas I've ever seen for trying to cash in on the green hype; this startup thinks that putting a reusable garbage bag in your washing machine is somehow better for the environment than a single-use plastic bag. You really couldn't make this up if you tried:

Yesterday, a new volcano erupted in La Palma, an island of the Canary Islands. These pictures by Abián San Gil Hernández are incredible.

> Microsoft Azure silently install management agents on your Linux VMs, which now have RCE and LPE vulns.

> Microsoft don’t have an auto update mechanism, so now you need to manually upgrade the agents you didn’t know existed as you didn’t install them.

> With a single packet, an attacker can become root on a remote machine by simply removing the authentication header.

Berlin just legalized flat-out discrimination based on personal medical history, blatantly violating article 3 of the German constitution. To prevent being sued to hell, they added some basic exemptions, for only the most basic venues like e.g. supermarkets and public bureaus.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme.
