Today iam going offline with any of my Smarthones for Testing.
all current Smartphones based on nonfree Hard and Software
Hackers can remote force install Trojans as Updates (especially Stores by gov order)
non rooted devices are black boxes
rooted Images or Tools as Workarounds are often not published in which way the System OS is broken down, Hackers don’t work nonprofit !
Linux Laptops usage is often easier and much safer, you have full control and can run security tools to monitor
Apps for free do always call home at background
can’t control active background jobs and what they calc
can’t disable the USB Port for attacks or memory access
don’t know possibility about scanning data from active chips thru magnetic fields like RFID
fingerprint or biometric sensors are really nonsense
Smartphones don’t allow to edit the MAC Addresses of your device it’s like a Chassis Number of your CAR!!
.. and much more
When you can’t power down or prevent usage of your Smartphone then:
don’t leave it alone at any places
don’t use public wifi networks, cause attackers can take over wifi requests „man in the middle“
don’t use GPS
don’t use Whatsa. and fb, twitt. and other social media tools
factory reset monthly, better weekly, restore from sdcard by backup tools from first day
disconnect Data Transfer Option after use, safes battery too
blind all camera lenses, can be activated remote
put it into a Metal box to carry it in your Pockets, iron cage against magnetic fields
use often the flight mode to go offline for longer times
stick on a privacy guard on screen
use prepaid cards, change them from time to time
use SFTP with key auth always to sync data to you private internet space
from a other blog destroy the microphone cables inside and phone by a bluetooth headset with microphone
prefer less apps and select apps which the mainstream don’t use cause Attackers prefer Mainstream Apps to hack
DON’T forget to disable/switch Wifi to LTE if BOTH active Google can LOCATE you by LTE and known public WIFI Accesspoints WITHOUT GPS!!!
.. step back use a old mobile phone for seniors 20$.. or use Linux Smartphones..
iam not paranoid but if you read some blogs you will recognize that everything is used to break your privacy daily
security company’s offer services to everybody who pay’s the highest prices against laws in every way too..
If you use a Smartphone or Tablet be sure that the Browser like Firefox, Icecat Opera are not active at „minimize“ mode, if the Website code uses a „auto“ refresh code the Browser will endless load the sites on Background! This burns your Data Limit to zero..
Swipe unused apps to Top of Screen!
Control by tapping onto the Square Button!
Use Data Traffic Control Apps default addon tool of Huawei
After Ubuntu published the latest Kernel Patches for Meltdown and Spectre the Kernel 4.4.0-104/109-generic let Intel Graphics freeze or hang on Compiz with Unity.
Install the latest Kernel 4.4.0-112-generic
sudo apt-get install linux-image-4.4.0-112-generic
sudo apt-get install linux-image-extra-4.4.0-112-generic
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge -y
This removes older kernels and save Space! Do test the PC for hanging again!!!
Thru current IT News you may have heard about the major Security Problem of x86 Technology.
If your Websites current hosted on VM at VM Providers, contact them to get current news about their bug handling of their VM Host Servers. If you get no details, then shutdown your sites temporarily, or look for a other solution which isn’t running on x86 Technology.
Otherwise you can try to switch from php-kits to static HTML Websites. On the Net there are very helpful tools to do this easy. For WordPress is a WP to HTML Plugin available. This dumps your blog to HTML static paket where you can use a raspberry Pi with ligttpd as litte Webserver instance up to the time the x86 Manufacter fixes the nasty problems. Remark Debian runs on other CPUs like Sparc64 Mips too..
If you use a Router with IP Phones you perhaps want to have a Power Storage for up to 60 Minutes to use IP Phone or WIFI on Power Failures??
Check the Router DATASHEETS! the Battery Voltage on loading should never go over maximum!!
Some Trafo wind up to 14Volts and more! This DESTROYS the DSL MODEM CHIP !!!!
The 10 Cell AA Batterholder allow to connect 9 Cells! Connect the Wire to only 9th Connector 9x AA 1,26V let the Router work
The Modem is protected cause the Circut runs under 12 Volts! 11,25 – 11,5V, the 0,5V lost on the Fuses and Diode.
2 Fuses is a MUST HAVE! use always Fuses of 85% of the Router max Power (1,2Amps take 1A), it let the Fuse act faster!
The Trafo is the original Part. 12V 1,2A
If you use a Amazon Fire TV Stick you perhaps want to replace TV Speakers with a Audio System.
To get a 3,5mm Audio Stereo Signal you can take a Ligawo HDMI to DVI Box.
It splits the 2.1 Stereo Audio Signal from digital to 2.1 Analog Signal.
You can plugin:
Headphones use at Office
Active Speaker Audio Systems 2.1
Recorder (for Music Records of Live Concerts)
Laptop to record with free Suite called Audacity free
Download for Win+Linux
If your are a Blogger like me, you perhaps want to earn money with Advertisements. On this point you should know that many things prevent you from being successful.
A lot of Internet Blogs and Clever Pages tell you the „FAIRY TALE“ of getting much „EASY MONEY“ but this is not true.
Why, see here:
First Search Engines like Google prefer Blogs with „https“ on Ranking, if you „iframe“ Affiliate Banners you lost the „closed“ lock, cause iframed Links are „NOT YOUR CONTENT“.
The normal Users only klick on Banners with Images, cause the want to buy what they see, Text Affiliate Links often not touched but needs much work and time.
Most of Users got NO Money, cause they were „BLOCKED“ by „ABUSE“ of Affiliate Codes by the Partner Rules, but this is often NOT TRUE!
Many Affiliate Partner Companys don’t pay after a long time. Cause the Blogs have too „LESS“ Visits.
Setting Affiliate needs much manual work over a long term of time
Affiliate Partner can change the Affiliate Rules monthly
Search Engines like Google RANK DOWN your Blog if the Code offers to much Affiliate!
Users who search content and touch a Text Affiliate Link, which does not offer useful Informations, prevent the visit again and are LOST FOREVER!
Local Tax Laws enforce you to get a full Impressum with Addresses and tax numbers, do you really want to publish your complete privacy ??
Many Lawyers, scan the Internet for Blogs with browen Law Rules to ADMONISH you. This is more expensive that you earn thru Affiliate Links!
Users who follows the Affiliate Links or Banners are lost by „FORGOTTEN“ last pages, you KNOW fast you can LEAVE yourself inside the INTERNET.
No Affiliate Partner Company prepay your work first.
I can go on with much of this points, but you see Affiliate DOES not make ANY SENSE today, the Golden Times are really gone…
