The Sony Walkman TPS-L2 introduced in 1979 is one of those legends. It’s the first Walkman ever made and the first product I’m showcasing that’s older than myself. This was the first time music became truly portable making it historically more significant than even the iPod. The TPS-L2 has become a collector’s favorite so expect to pay a premium for one in good condition. I was lucky and purchased this from a university museum for a reasonable price.
At its heart, Tails is a version of the Linux operating system optimized for anonymity. It comes with several privacy and encryption tools, most notably Tor, an application that anonymizes a user’s internet traffic by routing it through a network of computers run by volunteers around the world.
Most of the attention around the Heartbleed attack has focused on the simplest and most obvious scenario: a malicious client attacking an HTTPS server to steal cookies, private keys, and other secrets. But this isn’t the only attack possible: a malicious server can also send bad heartbeat packets to a client that uses OpenSSL and extract data from that client. The TLS heartbeats used in this attack are symmetric: they can be initiated by either the „client” or the „server” in a TLS connection, and both endpoints use the same vulnerable parsing code.
