OpenSSH is great. I like it. But the version that comes bundled with Windows 10 sucks. Setup is pretty easy and straight forward. But due to the way access is handled in Windows (e.g., by ACLs) and the fact that it (the Linux/Unix version as well for obvious reasons) does not support links which point to resources outside of the chrooted environment, it’s rather useless for my purposes.

I’d like to have an OpenSSH based solution where I’m able to work with virtual file-systems for chrooted environments just like FTP, and without the need to create a bunch of otherwise useless users in the operating system. Oh, I have such wonderful memories of the Gene6 FTP server. That was a truly great product. Unfortunately, it’s development ceased in 2019 and their website is broken.

Well, yes, I know that it’s not the way how SSH works. But for chrooted environments which are mainly used as SFTP it would actually make sense. Like, somehow a portable installation of OpenSSH. That would be pretty nice.

Uninterrupted, good quality mobile phone reception is extremely important to rail passengers. In technical terms, it’s the pièce de résistance for every network provider because the demands on bandwidth increase with data-intensive applications. Swisscom has now successfully achieved a transmission speed of over 1 Gigabit per second on a moving train under test conditions. This result sets a new benchmark for the mobile phone industry.

Chinese hackers have used a zero-day in the Trend Micro OfficeScan antivirus during their attacks on Mitsubishi Electric, ZDNet has learned from sources close to the investigation.

Trend Micro has now patched the vulnerability, but the company did not comment if the zero-day was used in other attacks beyond Mitsubishi Electric.

The more snake-oil you put on something the larger the attack vector gets.

Scanning your computer for malware viruses is important to keep it running smoothly. This also is true for your QLED TV if it’s connected to Wi-Fi! Prevent malicious software attacks on your TV by scanning for viruses on your TV every few weeks.

Why does the TV need Internet access anyway? No Samsung devices for me then. Never ever.

What more to say? Enjoy!

I updated the HOSTS file, added compatibility with Android OS and added a simple install script to control the HOSTS file on Windows. I didn’t create an APK since you need root-access on Android to update the file and I think if you’re already root you won’t install this file using an APK. ;) Just push it to /system/etc and you’re good to go. No need to reboot. Changes apply immediately.

I tested the script on Windows Seven x32 only and I appreciate to hear your experiences when running on any x64 version of Windows. Anyway, enjoy!
