  218. jonas’

    TIL (and don’t care)

  219. Zash

    They invented ASN.1 ?

  220. karoshi has left

  221. larma

    Zash, how is this related to ASN.1?

  222. karoshi has joined

  223. Zash


  224. jonas’

    they’re not OIDs though?

  225. Zash

    The concept of { oid, hash bitstring } ?

  226. jonas’

    I don’t see OIDs there though

  227. jonas’

    OIDs are hierarchical

  228. larma

    yeah, they're not using OIDs, they are just prefixing the hash with a type and it's length

  229. Zash

    I don't mean OIDs specifically

  230. Zash

    Maybe I've just looked too closely at the whole ASN.1 thing, so to me it looks similar.

  231. MattJ

    It's the same but worse

  232. larma

    Zash, you mean they could have used ASN.1 instead?

  233. Zash

    They could

  234. larma

    but they are blockchainy

  235. jonas’

    why would you though

  236. larma

    so they mind every byte

  237. jonas’

    ASN is odd with it’s different serialisation formats

  325. Kev

    Ah. Has xmpp.org enabled the 'I won't talk to small DH Keys' Prosody thing?

  326. pep.

    gender-neutral singular "they" replacing "it" for things? :P

  330. MattJ

    Kev, yes (but to be clear it's not a Prosody thing, it's system OpenSSL defaults on Debian 10)

  331. Zash

    Pretty sure it's been configured to prefer ECDHE

  332. Kev

    Ah. Any chance that could be turned off, as an easier option that updating my server to a release from the last millenium? :)

  333. pep.

    And actually probably most distributions now, at it's recommended by openssl since.. a vulnerability not so long ago

    It's not Standards Track

    pep., it already delayed the PR. I personally see no reason why this should cause the PR to get vetoed by council, but since it takes only one council member to veto…. In any case you could resubmit without, which would be sad. But we can not add the data form validation later on, without bumping the namespace, so it was important to do it now.

    I found out today that most of the spam that I get through XMPP is coming from my secondary account, on jabber.org, instead of my primary account on igniterealtime.org. What strikes me is that I publish contact details including the latter a lot more than the former.

  404. Zash

    I too get a bunch of spam to my jabber.org account, despite never having written about it anywhere or barely used it for more than occational testing.

    Having something anti spam on jabber.org would obviously be nice, but I wasn't so much calling for action as I was expressing surprise at the source of the spam I get. It would be interesting to find reasons why an infrequently used account gathers more spam than an actively used and shared one.

  451. Guus

    I do now wonder if the recent uptake in spam and the recent instability at jabber.org are related.

  452. Zash

    Guus: I imagine you'd find a ton of legitimate accounts by taking a random list of email addreses and picking out the localparts.

  453. Guus

    That wouldn't get you my jabber.org account.

  454. Zash

    Maybe the reason it seems to be more is that you look at it less often, so the spam waves get buffered up in offline storage

    I receive lots of spam on my personal account on my personal server, but it appears to be fluctuating quite drastically from day to day.

  470. mukt2 has joined

  471. vanitasvitae

    Guess I made it to some spam list...

  472. moparisthebest

    same, it went away almost entirely for almost a year I'd guess, but now it's back up to a few a day

  473. Zash

    But in my case, an account with no contacts that I never use and never mentioned anywhere, still getting spam? They must have guessed.

  474. Guus

    Can we assume that it's mostly one entity that's driving all of this spam?

  475. Guus

    Zash: maybe some kind of way to list accounts on a server or something?

  476. Guus

    Xep 55 with a wildcard?

  477. Zash

    Does jabber.org have that enabled? That'd be scary.

  478. Jeybe has joined

  479. Kev

    No. It supports xep55, but it's opt-in.

  480. pep.

    or.. the db got leaked! :p

  481. Zash

    Or any db got leaked, and they tried every username on every server

  482. pep.

    Kev, opt-in by the client?

  483. Kev

    pep.: Yes.

  484. pep.

    So like MAM? :P

  485. Kev

    Well, by the user through their client.

  486. pep.

    opt-in but every clients uses it

  487. pep.

    opt-in but every client uses it

  488. Kev

    I don't follow.

  489. pep.

    It's a joke. I don't know if it's the case for 0055.

  490. pep.

    MAM was made opt-in on most servers though

  491. pep.

    For GDPR reasons among others

  492. pep.

    But every client uses it anyway

  493. Zash

    Opt-in by using it!

    But for 55 I'd hope it be a thing where you register with it to opt in

  498. Kev

    You don't register with it, you tick the box in your user configuration adhoc.

  499. Kev

    But that's probably equivalent.

  500. Zash


  501. pep.

    You mean your client does that for you, providing whatever UI

  502. pep.

    (maybe not even mentioning the fact that you're enabling it)

  503. Kev

    Do you have any evidence clients are doing this, or are you guessing?

  504. pep.

    No evindence, just saying it's a possibility

  505. Zash

    I highly doubt things will execute random ad-hoc commands
