A keyboard app with >100 million installs that has almost full access to the phone and contains tracking code by 20 companies including Google, FB, Amazon, several smaller data brokers, and myTarget, part of mailru/VK and close to the Russian state.

What could possibly go wrong?

LibreOffice FTW! I was worried because it can be slow and clunky, but I use LO for presentations and figured I'd give it a try. Took a bit of orientation, but it worked great! It was easy to drop the pictures in and edit them on each slide, including cropping, rotation and placement. Setting up simple transitions and looping the slideshow were also easy. I got many compliments on the slideshow from attendees!

Happy to see that @EC_OSPO has published the study about "funding mechanisms for sustaining for public services" in which I have marginally participated.

Lots to read to see if some of my recommendations/comments have been included.

I've seen that at least @libreoffice has been mentioned as critical Open Source software for public services (on which we recently did a bug bounty organised by @EU_Commission).

Very rough though. According to its cookie policy, the 'fr' cookie is "used to deliver, measure and improve the relevancy of ads" (facebook.com/policies/cookies), and FB receives a unique browser-specific 'fr' string across visits to different websites (p112f: cdn.sanity.io/files/btrsclf0/p)

Welcome to the Fediverse, your first step to more independence from big tech giants.

We obviously still have a looooong way to go, when you introduce yourself in a video hosted on YouTube, a Google owned datamine. If you really need to use YouTube, at LEAST link to it via one of the publicly available Invidious instances redirect.invidious.io/ or through piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=1rxT

Best would be, you setup and maintain a PeerTube instance and host your videos there.

There are so many things about this that I don't like. First, I thought it was a joke. Second, this should really be opt-in. I could go on... #dataprivacy

Last month, Microsoft worked with upstream to irresponsibly disclose two security issues in networkd-dispatcher.

Bugs were fixed publicly in git earlier that month, the blog post published on Apr 26, Ubuntu security team prepared and released fixed packages on 27th/28th; the first time I heard about it as Debian maintainer was the 28th.

Thanks for nothing.

2 years ago, we observed Grindr sharing exact location data with 8 data brokers in the 'advertising' space, including MoPub, back then owned by Twitter.

Now the WSJ found that this data has actually been available for sale, via MoPub, since at least 2017:
