iOS/Android Privacy: – see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser · Felix Krause

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/31

Especially on Archive, but also on Android and other mobile operating systems, mobile apps can have their in-app browsers to circumvent the OS provided wrapper around the system browser.

On iOS, the Safari is the only system browser engine whereas on Android you can have other engines too, so less Android applications have in-app browsers.

Most of those in-app browsers are in social media applications that go to great length to keep their users inside a walled garden.

The site [Wayback/Archive] helps checking how severely information is leaked through the in-app browser as those potentially have a lot of control. TikTok is worst capturing all input including credentials like user names and passwords.

Since about 5 months now, there has been a new Chocolatey package maintainer for OpenVPN

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/26

Last winter, I discovered that the OpenVPN version on Chocolatey was really old: it had not been updated since 2019.

Most  Chocolatey maintainers are volunteers and sometimes the burden can become too large. Back then the maintainer was [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software | wget, but luckily [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software | dgalbraith has stepped in and in March 2022 bumped the version from [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software | OpenVPN 2.4.7 to [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software | OpenVPN – Open Source SSL VPN Solution 2.5.4 and kept maintaining (currently there is [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software | OpenVPN – Open Source SSL VPN Solution 2.5.7).
