Jbl forced you to? I just bought a Jbl soundbar and wasn't forced to sign anything?

Hiya, just bought a new sound bar for my TV. And with it, as expected, came this "Register your product" pamphlet, and had me wondering how many actually register their products? I've personally never done this before, as in my country we have 2 years of warranty on everything we buy, so not really ever felt the need for registering products. But I am curious, do you register your products? Should I?

While I generally also try to live by that rule and only use Proton for its mail service. Having another Suite option that actually is private. Is what Proton needs to become for "normal" people to adapt to other options outside of Google, Microsoft etc..

Multiple things have the same abbreviation, it's really all about the context it's used it imo. Considering Ngninx Proxy Manager being a very well known tool in the selfhosters toolbelt, I figured it would be familiar enough to use.

Seems quite fair

I've seen others calm this npm, so went along and did the same πŸ™ƒ

Well thank you! And 2Y2 🌻

Hiya, just got NPM installed and working, very happy to finally have SSL certs on all of my serivces and proper URLs to navigate to them, what a breeze! However, as I am still in the learning process: I am curious to know when to enable these three toggles and for what services. I assume the "Block Common Exploits", can always be turned on. But unsure about the two others. Some applications have not worked until I turned on the Websockets Support, but I dont really know what it does, nor do I know what applications need this in order to fully work. Are there any thumb rules for these things?

Appriciate any pointers! 🌻

Hiya!

I've just setup FreshRSS and subscribed to a few feeds I like, and while FreshRSS is great for doing heavy lifting on the backend side of things, I'm not 100% pleased with the frontend side of things. Some articles are loading the full article, while others are loading half or a third, having me to either scroll a lot or click to open more. This left me wondering if there are any good clients that can connect to FreshRSS? I have Read You on Android, but I mostly consume my news on my PC/Laptop. Is it best to try to tweak FreshRSS or do you have any recommendations for frontends?

Lemmy know! 🌻

Interesting findings within a VPN app (self.reverseengineering)
submitted 2 days ago* (last edited 2 days ago) by Sunny to c/reverseengineering@infosec.pub

cross-posted from: https://slrpnk.net/post/8481443

I am currently investigating and reverse engineering free VPNs for a master thesis, and just came across something I thought I'd share. Not sure if I'll name-drop the VPN that this code is from, but it's not the one mentioned within the hardcoded links... Nor do I encourage visiting any of the links in the screenshot.

I'm sharing this as a warning as to never use free vpns! They are most often the opposite of what they promise to be. (by free I do not mean the free versions of premium services). But either way; be careful about your VPN choice, as they have access to a lot of sensitive data. I'm sure most peeps here know of this already, but next time you hear someone using a free vpn, let them know...

This first image/code was sitting inside a file called NetworkModule, with some hella weird external links.

  1. addrDOTcx, seems to have been linked to malware? Comes up flagged as malicious a few times on VirusTotal.
  2. freevpnDOTzone, seems to be another free possible malicious VPN service, might investigate this one later.
  3. bigbrolookDOTcom, seems to longer be a registered domain. But wtf? Was this VPN service linked to p*rn??

IMAGE HERE; Don't visit these links unless you know what you're doing.

Furthermore, there is this interesting find; Now I am no expert coder, frankly quite the amateur. But does the below code really mean what I think it does? Seems like it could be creating a fake connection?

Is used once here;

Stay safe 🌻

This is more-less normal behaviour it seems, considering it is a local address it is probably used for testing purposes or making the app not crash if a connection cant be established.

Recently stumbled upon this note-taking app called SiYuan, but it honestly looks a bit too good to be true(?). Has anyone here used it or got any experience with it? Trying to replace Obsidian is a difficult task, and I've been through almost all note-taking apps there are out there, however this one looks fairly similar.

Backup Game Saves Solutions? (self.linux_gaming)
submitted 4 days ago* (last edited 4 days ago) by Sunny to c/linux_gaming@lemmy.world

Hiya, quick question! Do you have a system for backing up or game save files? I recently discovered GameVault, but the client seems to be a bit unfinished, from first glance, do correct me if I'm wrong. Are there any other similar clients like this? And or simple solutions for easy finding save files and backing them up?

Let me know your solutions!

Hiya,

Simple question really, do you light candles when your cat is around? We've newly got our cat (5 months now), but had never light a candle around here due to the possible dangers. Are your cats curious about candles when lit? I feel like the possibility of them being too curious around them isn't worth the possible risk. We haven't really got a lot of places where the cat cannot reach either. But could maybe get some 'enclosed' candleholders.

Happy to hear what you do guys do regarding this. We quite like having the occasional candle lit.
