1/5 As many of you here watch family, friends, associates and colleagues living their best lives out there, as #COVID19 surges, please know that many ARE NOT okay.

"Psychoanalyst Judith Alpert theorizes that our culture is terrified of death, illness, and vulnerability."
2/5 "Thus, “[t]hose who have contact with the #chronically #ill . . . do not want to be #reminded of #vulnerability and #ultimate #demise. In turn, the demand placed on the chronically ill is to #control, #hide, and #overcome the #chronic #illness.” (Alpert, 2012)."
3/5 Many of those who appear to be living their best lives are faking wellness to fit in.

In an Invited Editorial in @JAMAOnc today, my colleagues & I call for health systems to develop “Comprehensive #Pandemic Support Programs” for their most vulnerable patients.

These are our Top 10 Tips!

THREAD 🧵
jamanetwork.com/journals/jamao… JAMA Oncology article, "Variability in COVID-19 Vaccine
Tip #1: Health systems should explain to all patients that #COVIDisAirborne and is best avoided through multi-layered mitigation. Swiss Cheese model of COVID mitigation
Tip #2: Health systems should prioritize getting the most vulnerable patients vaccinated & boosted.

Offer #vaccines on-site w/the SAFEST options.

Vulnerable patients want highly-ventilated or outdoor options & high-quality (e.g., N95) masks for safety. Make it happen. Vaccination given while clinician wears an N95 outdoors

Grady Clinic, last week

Me: “That wasn’t my intention. I’m sorry I—”
You: *holding up hand* “Nah I’m good. I don’t want your apology.”

Ooph.

I parted my lips to say more but you spoke again before I could.

You: “Please just leave. Now.”

And you meant it.

The student working with me shifted nervously. I felt thankful for the melanin that masked red heat rushing to my face.

You: “Don’t worry. I ain’t gon’ take this out on you.”

You looked at her & then back to me.

You: “It’s OK. I’ll still see her. Now please leave.”

Whew.

You added something about how I made it harder for my student but since it wasn’t her fault you wouldn’t hold my shortcomings against her learning.

I apologized once more but you were done talking to me. And hearing me talk period.

I gave the student a nod and slipped out.

Another new idea for #PenetrationTesting and #Bug-hunting:

Enhance the force of #vulnerabilities by doing things like
I discovered a free #URL that leads somewhere else.
Put this in my report and move on ?
To the contrary, changing the #payload allowed me to transform it into a reflected #XSS #vulnerability. Is this the final question?
Obviously not if I have any hope of carrying on.
This web app used #JWT tokens that were transmitted in the bearer header, and for some reason, there were three more cookies that also contained this token.
Only two of them were secure with #HTTP Only.
Just a wild guess.

A recent post by Vietnamese cybersecurity company GTSC detailed findings from a #MicrosoftExchange breach that stemmed from CVE-2022-41040 and CVE-2022-41082. @Volexity ties this to a CN threat actor it tracks that targets organizations using #OWA and #Zimbra.
#volexintel 1/7
Specifically the post highlights IP 206.188.196.77, which hosted the domain rkn-redirect[.]net. @Volexity previously identified this domain as a phishing domain targeting #OWA users. Note some subdomains offer clues about the likely targeting.

.@Volexity has linked the rkn-redirect[.]net domain to several others through domain registration patterns & banner data patterns.

"Today, when the left’s political timidity and #authoritarianism has stripped it of all credibility as a democratic political force, it is more significant that the right also finds it very difficult to resist the lure of #vulnerability claims."

"The old imperial myth of Britain standing up to foreign tyrants is once again being wheeled out in respect of Ukraine, but the context has changed. The critical point ... is that the fear-mongering style of politics developed during the Cold War...is all conservatives have left"
"All the old commitments, once proclaimed by conservatives, to traditional virtues, such as faith, family, sacrifice, duty, deference to hierarchy, have decayed in practice into a fear-driven politics in which liberals, socialists and foreigners are constructed as threats ..."

Infra/App monitoring Tools-thread 👇🏻

What is monitoring?

The purpose of IT monitoring is to determine how well your IT infrastructure and the underlying components perform in real time. The resolution gets quicker &smarter

#Linux #Monitoing #Security #infosec #ITJobs #Tools Image
Type of monitoring:

1. Availability monitoring: this is designed to provide users with information about uptime and the performance of whatever is being monitored.

2. Application performance management (APM): Using APM solutions, businesses can monitor
whether their IT environment meets performance standards, identify bugs and potential issues, and provide flawless user experiences via close monitoring of IT resources.

3. Security monitoring: Security monitoring is designed to observe a network for breaches or

9. Hello again, @akgungor_c continues from where he has left :) So, I tend to think of #disasters as systemic “radiographs”. I’m not sure when I first came up with this analogy but I usually associate this idea with my own experience as a search & rescue volunteer.
10. After all, looking around in a disaster-stricken zone, few people don't come to reflect on their own #vulnerability first, then, gradually, about the vulnerability of human societies to massive #disruptions.
11. The greater the impact, the thinner seems the protective bubble provided by our physical and social systems.

Hi #infosec folks, I did promise a #TCC #vulnerability for #macOS blogpost. So, here we are, introducing "Powerdir":

I wanted to add a meme to the blogpost but apparently you simply can't do that...
Apparently @_r3ggi found very similar issues in parallel to my findings, it's interesting to see the different approaches to TCC bypass bughunting.

This week we will be talking all about #vulnerability. A critical concept in disaster studies but one that has generally been used in a limited way!
I think a good place to start this conversation is with the Pressure and Release (PAR) model, from a book most of you probably know, 'At Risk.' This model charts 'the progression of vulnerability' and underpins the vulnerability paradigm that many disaster scholars draw upon. Image
The paradigm has been effective in framing disasters as socially constructed, and locating the creation of risk in political and economic processes that are unjust, privileging some and oppressing others.

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

#TrojanHorse

tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

Why do strong Earthquakes take place in Haiti? Does it have something to do with Plate Tectonics?
What are the factors that put Haiti at risk?

Still, major obstruction efforts slow, stop, or even reverse progress.
