Privacy extension spammed to hell by trolls and shills.
I'm just a regular user. I'm not affiliated with the creator of the extension. It came to my attention while updating my plugins, that one of my favorite plugins, [Block Cloudflare MITM Attack!](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stopcloudflare/), is being reviewed bombed by trolls and shills. I don't have evidence, but this seems coordinated. Every day various "users" give 1 star to the extension. Now if that was just a bad extension or a bug or something, I'd be fine. But all they do is give a star that says nothing or says something vague in multiple languages. I tried contacting Mozilla but they did nothing about it. When it's obviously "downvoted" just because it works as intended. All this extension does is to block Clouflare MITM, as the name says, and pretty reliably. Now, if you think Cloudflare is a good company that deals honestly with private data, that's up for debate. But Cloudflare is a MITM. This is how Cloudflare works and using it gives them (and your website users) sensitive private data. [Cloudflare Privacy Policy](https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/) shows they are in the business of selling personal data, some websites protected with Cloudflare can't be accessed without giving full java-script access and cookies, is hostile to Tor users and also [Crimeflare](https://git.disroot.org/dCF/deCloudflare/src/branch/master/readme/en.md) For those who don't know, this extension is an old fork extension of the [same name](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bcma/) If you guys can help me spread on r/privacy subreddit that would be nice, too. I really hope this gets traction, also would be nice to see more users blocking Cloudflare and (hopefully) Imunify.

It's bullshit that they're getting away with this. A settle out of court is as good as nothing as far as legal punishments are concerned.

> Google has a right to decide which users it wants to host. But it was Google’s incorrect algorithms, and Google’s failed human review process, which caused innocent people to be investigated by the police in these cases. It was also Google’s choice to destroy without warning and without due process these fathers’ email accounts, videos, photos, and in one case, telephone service. The consequences of the company’s error are not trivial.

> The reasons for NOT tracking are myriad: First, you’ll engender goodwill with your supporters. Second, you may not imagine your organization to be the likely target of ransomware or of a data breach, but the less data you collect, and the less you share with outside organizations or companies, the less likely that your supporters will be affected. Third, data privacy laws vary across regions, and we are in a time of rapid change with respect to those laws. Minimizing data collection and retention can help ensure you’re complying with those laws.

Criptomonedas
Ahora que se habla mucho del bitcoin, a través del programa podcasting podcastlinux.com he conocido que hay también faircoins. Pero no doy con una o varias explicaciones exactas de cómo usarlas en el mundo real sobre todo si no tengo cuenta alguna en ningún banco. ¿Cómo podría empezar a adquirir valores de esas criptomonedas y que además de eso pueda canjearlos en Sudamérica, o dónde podría buscar eso e información para el mundo real para al menos empezar a retribuir aunque sea de a poquito lo que varios servicios me han dado de manera gratuita y segura?

AppBrowser.com - see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser on ios
This is a pretty convenient way to check how snoopy the different in-app browser are. Seems like Facebook and TikTok are pretty damn invasive. I hope this makes Apple enforce privacy in the in-app browsers somehow since I'm guessing Facebook and TikTok will just update their code so this can't be checked anymore instead of ensuring their users privacy\security.

> Australian police last month arrested the man, now 24, and identified at least 201 of his Australian customers, in an investigation that began in 2017 and involved a dozen law enforcement agencies in Europe and Australia, and information provided by Palo Alto Networks and the FBI. The case underscores the sheer scope of the market for stalkerware—the app, costing just $35, was sold for seven years before law enforcement shut it down. Tens of thousands of victims were spied on, police said. Its customers included domestic violence perpetrators and even a child sex offender.
