"Even in its amended version, this proposed directive would require that **websites with large amounts of user uploaded content** add mandatory upload filters. What this means is that websites would be required to have algorithms check **all user uploads** against a database of content and block those that are detected as infringing copyrights from appearing online."

Just had a call from a slightly distraught non-techy friend of a friend. They were burgled and her laptop was stolen. All their family photos gone. No backups. :(. If you're a tech, teach your friends and family. Help them understand the need for backups, please! <3

That way you take out key players without it looking like a political crackdown."

Even when rendering HTML, #Mailpile is not vulnerable as far as I can tell.
We sanitize the content so their malformed snippets get cleaned up and we check the GnuPG error codes so their gadgets will fail.
I need to write a boasting blog about this, this is actually a resounding endorsement of why baking security in from the start matters.
Very nice day in London finalising plans for world domination. Seen a lot of police around, not for me this time, and closed roads.
Apparently there's a Commonwealth meeting tonight to try to make Britain great again after Brexit. https://mastodon.partecipa.digital/media/m531Q-cX2uGONcDCRAQ
