FBI Says It Will Ignore Court Order If Told To Reveal Its Tor Browser Exploit, Because It Feels It's Above The Law... | Techdirt submitted by Mixplate to technology

djsumdog 0 points 62 points (+62|-0) ago

Despite what you think about the accused and this case, this comes back to a very basic fact: should the government be allowed to withhold known security exploits?

No. Of course not. That makes the world unsafe for everyone. It means they knowingly left an exploit in the wild, one that a criminal hacker can find and use to steal money, an identity, information etc.

The FBI non-compliance is bullshit. They judge should hold individual investigators in contempt of court, charge them and hold them. They should get criminal records! Cops and Feds get away with so much shit that normal people would be destroyed over. It's fucking sick.

Um, the title is horrible misleading. Their DVR box blocks ... probably everything. Why the fuck are you using their DVR? Why do you have cable? Fuck that shit. Get a private seed box, use private torrent trackers and get a real router running something like OpenWRT that you can update and keep secure.

From what I've gathered, most of the comments do not come from devs, sysadmins or infrastructure engineers. I've spent about 20 years in the industry, from the days of hosting websites on Sun stations to scheduling docker containers on a mix of local and aws nodes. I currently work at a shop with an $80k/month AWS bill.

So a couple of things. I have no idea how much Cloudflare cost. It's not cheap though, and their DDOS protection is up there (when they're not spewing other client's random SSL packets into other peoples' sessions .. but that's another story).

Azure is expensive. So is AWS and even Digital Ocean, Rackspace, Vultr, etc. A basic DC/OS cluster on Digital Ocean runs you $600/month minimum. That's without redundancy. Running your own server/co-location seems like a cost saver, and it is, so long as you have the staff to support it. At one point Stackoverflow moved to a single server for everything (not sure what they do now) and I have seen companies move away from "the cloud" to save money. But there are tradeoffs. You need a full team to purchase and maintain that infrastructure. If doesn't matter if you're just running VMs on VMWare or setup a full Kubernetes/Marathon cluster, it's a lot of work.

Hosting providers like AWS, DO, etc offset a lot of this management cost which allows small startups to get up quickly. Microsoft likes to offer things for free and lock people in.

Voat was originally developed in C#. Could it run in docker containers on Linux on .NET core? Potentially. How about you go and try it. Have fun with that. I've worked with people who've deployed apps that were originally for Win/IIS into .NET Core containers and it's very possibly, but it also takes work as is not trivial. Voat also uses SQL server, which has official Linux docker containers (I use one myself) but I don't know if those can be licensed for production.

"Rewriting it to run on Linux" or "getting off SQL Server" or "can't it use Postgres" are NOT at all simple tasks. Those are major operations that take weeks of rewrites and dedicated devs.

Voat has little in the ability to get VC funding. People here need to face the facts: no one is going to hand money to a startup whose primary user base is mostly toxic, racist, homophobic people who've been rejected from other online communities. There is a reason there are not more devs on here.

I like looking at opinions that don't match my own, which is probably why I still look at voat. However, this community is getting more frustrating. Just read the hacker news comments about Voat. All the devs and admins that could help you, left long ago because there's nothing here but toxic hate and sludge. These are devs from all walks of life and all parts of the world, and they left this place long ago.

I'd like to see real open communities with good content, good users and a distributed content delivery system. Voat was a good idea, and it'd be nice to see it stay around, but I don't think people here understands the true cost of running a service like this for a userbase of this size.

I don't see why him being undocumented matters. There are plenty of US citizens with multiple DUIs who've killed people. There are plenty of undocumented workers who never drink and drive and even have insurance (in the states that allow it). It doesn't add anything to the story except show your bias.

That being said, I hope your daughter pulls through and makes a full recovery, and I'm glad he got caught and will have to face a judge.

Dear god, shut the fuck up! Someone just died. The girl was 18. Why does everything have to be about the Arabs/Blacks/Jews/Whites/Hispanics! If a drunk driver kills someone it doesn't really matter what he is, other than a shit head. Just because he's a shithead doesn't mean everyone in his category theory group is a shit head. This is why no one supports Voat!

That girl was someone's friend, maybe someone's girlfriend, someone's daughter .. and now she's gone forever.
