Mac Big Sur is a trojan - Apple, I wish you’d care about privacy more
Apple’s Big Sur is a hidden trojan - — Apple, I wish you’d care about privacy more. — Many of us have been affected by MacOS’s outage today. According to this ArsTechnica article, other services like Apple Pay, Messages, and even Apple TV devices faced slowdowns too. What happened? Bugs like this just reveal what systems actually do under the hood. Usually, apps like Little Snitch help us on a daily basis to see what information is leaving our personal computers.Most voted comment in article But according to some architectural decisions, MacOS Big Sur (version 11.0) allows traffic to bypass usual routing and firewall rules. Which simply means Little Snitch won’t be able to monitor and block this, and neither can a VPN be able to help or hide you. MacOS has now simply forbidden it.A promotional landing page for macOS Big Sur I would say “I could care less — it’s an OS level process and API, why should the user be able to control it?” but.. I would also not agree to it unless implemented properly, because; It’s unencrypted, meaning Apple is sharing some info to some 3rd parties: to your WIFI peers, ISP, CDNs, etc., Information like your library of apps, and your’s IP fingerprint: Date, Time, Computer, ISP, City, State, Application Hash, I believe (or hope) that Apple’s intention is good, and that they only aim to increase our security with this approach by improving notarisation of dev...
The Great Firewall of China is not so great, after all
The Great Firewall of China is not so great, afterall - — We crack open the technology that keeps 1.4 BILLION people walled in. — Most people are familiar with China’s widespread internet censorship. As VPNs are blocked there, it’s hard for people in China to access the “outside world” online. In this article, I share my personal experiences of trying to run a VPN service for users in China, as well as the general quality and speed of the internet there. This is the first in a series of articles that dive deeper into the issues faced by internet users living in digitally oppressed regimes. — Is the Great Firewall of China a Great Myth? - The Golden Shield Project We first launched our flagship desktop and mobile applications MysteriumVPN in 2018. The VPN was available to our Chinese for 2 years following our launch. This led me to the following conclusions: The Great Firewall (GFW), deep packet inspection and “learn, filter and block” for OpenVPN, UDP, or other restricted services don’t really exist. Or, at least, they are not as sophisticated as we‘ve been led to believe., Perhaps the reputation and mystery of the Great Firewall have been overestimated. Developers like to talk about it extensively, as it’s an interesting challenge., If it’s the second point, the topic is likely wrapped up in a lot of rumors. This matters for our team as we build new, anti-censorship tech from sc...
What does geoblocking mean? Is it just a form of censorship?
The true cost of “free” speech to corporations and governments. — — Why does Geoblocking exist? - We’ve all been there; “this content is unavailable in your country.” What is geoblocking? For many, geoblocking is an everyday inconvenience. For others, it’s a disguised form of censorship. This widely accepted practice allows companies to restrict access to their service based purely on your location. While this is generally for the sake of copyright and basic economics, in some extreme cases, it’s a violation of our human rights — such as the right to access information freely. — When the internet turns against you - Just imagine if the next time you went out to see a movie, you and your fellow viewers were each charged different ticket prices depending on your nationality. This is essentially what’s at play with geoblocking — location-based discrimination. And it’s happening to you every time you shop, stream or browse online. From Apple to small ecommerce stores, businesses the world over are varying their prices based on what they expect you to afford. Prices may even change depending on what time of day it is or the temperature outside. The digital economy has made it easy for companies to collect this data, later used to exploit your spending habits or socio-economic status. Even if you’re just a few suburbs apart, what price you pay may be vastly different to someone els...
Tor vs VPN — which is better?
VPN vs Tor — which is better? - — They’re meant to be the best options for protecting your online privacy, but are they really? - The internet was not built to be private and secure by default. Its flexible protocols allow people to build all kinds of software and applications, but these all need to be protected against malware and **cybercriminals**. In this VPN vs Tor vs dVPN comparison (originally published here), we look at how these security tools are both similar and different. Want to skip the read? Check out this video where we sum up the different advantages of using VPN, Tor and dVPNs in a few minutes. medium.com — What is TOR — is TOR a VPN? - Tor is a privacy project that launched in 2002. It’s an open-source and free browser that enables anonymous communication online. It was first developed by Syverson and computer scientists Roger Dingledine and Nick Mathewson, who originally called it The Onion Router (Tor) project, due to its “layers” of encryption. Tor browser and VPNs are similar in their aims but not in their technological approach. While both will hide your identity and ensure your browsing activity is kept private and encrypted, there are certain advantages and disadvantages to each. That’s why using the two systems together is your safest bet for securing your digital privacy. — How Tor works - The Tor network utilises a system that was originally developed ...
Mysterium Network will transition to updated ERC20 token with `permit`: 712-signed token approvals…
Mysterium Network will transition to updated ERC20 token with `permit`: 712-signed token approvals at the end of August - As the Head of Product of Mysterium Network, I am charged with everything from driving micropayments research to delivery of working applications on Android, Windows and Mac. A regular VPN application is hard enough, but it’s even more challenging when we are seeking to decentralize the infrastructure through which the service is provided. Let’s add peer to peer and blockchain payments into the mix of network security, and you’re bound to have multiple shifting pieces that you’re building upon. Here’s an update from me as Mysterium Network transitions into Mainnet. I first want to quickly reiterate the goal of the MYST token migration. We were looking to implement an easy way for consumers to top up their dVPN app accounts using ETH and for node runners to withdraw earned MYST into ETH (and maybe even DAI) automagically using a decentralized exchange. We wanted this to happen in a single transaction, so users would have the best possible experience. Part of our process gearing up for real payments on Ethereum blockchain included the submission of two versions of our token to our security auditors (both ERC777 and ERC20 +ERC2612 versions). Based on feedback from auditors, and our deeper research into current DeFi projects, we are making the decision to par back the scope of our token migration ...
Coronavirus: How internet censorship in one country led to a global health crisis.
I am writing this in transit between Helsinki and Vilnius. I’ve got a mask on, and it’s uncomfortable. But I shouldn’t complain — the mask itself was a godsend — given the nationwide shortage of masks, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes in Singapore. My flight taking me from Singapore to Helsinki may as well have been a private jet for the number of people on board. One of the perks when travelling while the world is gearing up for a pandemic. The coronavirus is quickly spreading through Asia, and onward into the US and Europe.See live updates on the coronavirus global spread — What does this have to do with freedom of speech? Just about everything. - I dive deeper into the death of Dr Li Wenling, what this is doing to sentiment across China, and acts of censorship currently affecting the spread of information on the coronavirus in this article. I will also be discussing the broader context of the state of the internet in China, and what we can do about it. To learn more about how the Chinese government is censoring its people in a moment when openness and transparency could help prevent a pandemic — read the full article on Mysterium Network’s blog. — Take an active role on the internet you use every day.

Lightweight solution for Mysterium Network micropayments
I’d like to share research on micropayments solution which we on Mysterium team are currently building to meet needs of decentralised VPN, CDN or streaming solutions. The ultimate goal of Mysterium Network is to become fully decentralized, peer to peer and anonymous by design. The nature of such networks is that parties (consumers and providers) are anonymous which leads to lack of trust of each other by default, such trust have to be provided by protocol and math. Considering trustless nature of the network, and aiming to reduce any risk of loosing money or providing service without being rewarded, the consumer isn’t going to pay a large amount up-front and the service provider will unlikely offer their services without prepayment. From this above mentioned scenario arises a need to split the service into chunks — provided in exchange for micropayments — meaning that each party risks only tiny amounts.This would mean that a user will pay a node a couple of times a minute, sending a tiny amount of tokens in exchange for the bandwidth they are renting. Blockchain payments are secure, censorship resistant, trustless and have open and permissionless API. Unfortunately they’re also relatively expensive and slow (ethereum transaction may cost up to dollar and took up to couple of hours to be included into block). Situation with centralised payment solutions like PayPal or Stripe isn’t much better. Despite ma...
Introducing the Mysterium Payment System
We are excited to announce we’re drawing closer to launching payments on Mysterium Network. Payments are a crucial element of Mysterium Network. As such, we needed to design a solution which was capable of meeting real world requirements of scalability and affordability. This system also had to comply with the ethos of decentralised ecosystems. These are two opposing forces, with no solution fit for Mysterium Network readily available in the market. There was no easy way around it for us. But we believe we found a solution that fits these requirements. This is more than just an exciting milestone for Mysterium Network We have worked extensively towards this moment for the better part of the year and are almost ready to deploy it. — Core challenges in designing payments for Mysterium Network: - Payments in Mysterium Network need to be lightweight and fast while honouring the core fundamentals of blockchain-systems: transparency, fairness, openness, protection from double-spending and fraud. It has to do all of this without relying on any centralised entity — making it trustless. This trustless element has been the hardest goal to achieve by far, yet the most crucial. Once deployed, payments will ensure that users can transact with one another autonomously, without a need for an intermediary (including us). If our attempt is successful — users won’t have to trust each other either. Instead, they will tru...
Mysterium Network Partners with AVADO
As Mysterium grows, we want to find the many new and exciting ways you can both be a part of our network, and take advantage of the token economy. Check out our article on 14 ways to earn crypto online. There are countless projects out there building the foundation of the decentralised world, and AVADO is one pioneer helping to drive the evolution of the Web3. medium.com — Who is AVADO? - AVADO enables you to be a part of your favourite decentralised projects, like Mysterium. The team created an amazingly simple plug and play hardware device that connects you to many different kinds of blockchains. Using the AVADO Box, anyone can become a node to help power decentralised networks and earn cryptocurrency in the process. [For those who need to know — How does a node work? In a distributed peer-to-peer network, a node represents a single device, such as a computer or hardware device, which helps power and maintain that network. Through these transparent, secure and community-run systems, value can easily be digitised and shared. People are incentivised to contribute their resources, such as bandwidth or processing power, sharing it directly with the entire network without any kind of official host or authority needed. Nodes are paid for contributing their resources.] Running your own node is usually very resource-intensive, requiring complex software as well as a lot of computer storage and bandwidth. AVADO makes...
Earn crypto with exciting new token economies
Decentralising the world economy - The internet redefined business forever, replacing brick and mortar with computer screens. But what’s more important is that it formed entirely new economic systems, such as the sharing and gig economies. Made up of freelancers and temporary workers, the gig economy affords people the freedoms and independence to work in their own way. We can now customise our jobs to fit into our lives, and not the other way around. The success of sharing economy startups-turned-conglomerates signalled that these community-driven businesses had a much-needed model — one which empowered consumers for the first time. These sub-economies show us what our global community is capable of when given an internet connection and a platform to share, collaborate and connect with one another. They break apart the traditional professional landscape and opens up new, fluid streams of income. — Tokens — money of the fourth industrial revolution? - Token economies are the next iteration of finance. Their decentralized systems are designed by and for people, rather than purely commercial profit. For example, with traditional sharing economies, host platforms like Airbnb and Uber take their ‘share’ and turn into conglomerates. In a decentralized sharing economy, these companies become obsolete; you are the user, the host and the network itself. Token economies can create financial opportunities for...
