#qi-hardware IRC log for Sunday, 2014-09-14

kyakmore details from freenode would've been great.. For instance, since they mentioned network traffic sniffing, those users using SSL might be safe?08:10
ysionnea1it depends if their hub were hit08:11
ysionnea1and if the connexion between hubs and leafs are ciphered or not08:11
kyakyeah, these are details i'm talking about08:13
ysionneauI guess they don't want to go into details, if their security is not optimum08:16
DocScrutinizer05kyak: since heartbleed I'd consider SSL an additional risk rather than a reason to feel safe08:16
ysionneaua risk when you are dealing with professionals, security agencies, governments08:17
ysionneaubut against basic hackers ssl is pretty useful08:17
DocScrutinizer05no, heartbleed showed it's exactly those basic hackers as well who were skimming off all the data buffered in the SSL layer08:18
DocScrutinizer05but aiui they got rooted and they won't discuss any details until they conpletely analysed and fixed that attack vector08:20
DocScrutinizer05would you ask on a public service broking portal about somebody "who can fix my flat's door lock? I can't close my door anymore. Addr: $YOUR_ADDR"08:23
DocScrutinizer05the answer might possibly be "We removed all valuable good, so you don't need to worry anymore about the door not closing"08:26
DocScrutinizer05a nasty sarcastic rogue person might even add "tell us if you want the complete house removed too. This week we offer that service for free to all our customers who booked the basic goods removal package"08:30
