This Hacker Tool Extracts All the Data Collected by Windows’ New Recall AI (www.wired.com)

When Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella revealed the new Windows AI tool that can answer questions about your web browsing and laptop use, he said one of the “magical” things about it was that the data doesn’t leave your laptop; the Windows Recall system takes screenshots of your activity every five seconds and saves them on the...

Who is this 4chan guy anyway?

It requires full disk encryption doesn’t it? If someone already has access to your account then they can access this data the same way you can. The new issue here is that this silos a load of private data in one easy to grab location. Users would have to set up the filters perfectly to prevent recall capturing anything more sensitive than what’s already accessible to their account. This is in a world where many users are probably storing their passwords in a Word document on the desktop.

Right but if I use a hammer to prove the lock I just bought is useless at protecting my shed, I’m not committing theft. This was a few lines of Python to look at data that is explicitly stored for the user to look at later.

So… how does the user actually ®ecall™ anything? Do they have to ask M$ Co-pilot™ AI to get it from The Azu®e™ Cloud? Because I’m pretty sure a hacker could do that just as easily.

It’s just looking in a sqlite file and listing the jpeg directory. The only extra step is running icacls to let the user read the files.

Their solution is to let users filter out websites in compatible browsers. This lets them blame the user for not marking sensitive websites as such. I don’t know if native applications can also be filtered.

Of course they also filter out precious DRM protected content. You wouldn’t steal a series of JPEGs.

Cheers.

I got an overpriced 250×200mm sheet off Amazon, just because it was easy. It’s definitely available cheaper elsewhere. I was trying to get blank black G10 / FR4 board to match the PCB but it doesn’t seem easily available in small quantities (except from China). I just searched for 1.6mm sheet and this stuff came up (it’s 0.06 inch but close enough). It cuts really well with a hacksaw - didn’t chip or crack at all and cleans up with a file or just a craft knife. I roughed it up the surface with sandpaper to CA glue it together and they’re holding together great.

The key cap set I got only had 1 and 1.5U. There are some 1.25U caps available separately online so I may well do that, thanks!

Is there any reason to keep the existing set-up? If it’s just one drive, you could replace it with another and install Alma or something fresh. Then you could copy over whatever config the old system had to get up and running again. You could swap to the old drive if you needed to revert. If you have a spare machine, you could stand up the fresh setup side-by-side with the old one before swapping over.

That’s supposed to be travelling at 153,545 mph, so not even half the speed of Aladdin and Jasmine. Also, the Parker Solar Probe is in space.

I find it odd, because venv is a “Suggested package”, actually. It isn’t in the list of new packages that will be installed with python3 by default.

I think the next major release of apt is supposed to be easier to read. Unless Debian neuter it.

Let’s see Paul Allen’s brain scan.

The pressure in the Apollo 1 capsule was 16.7 PSI or 1.14 atmospheres of pure oxygen. That’s almost 5.5 times the partial pressure of oxygen at sea level. At 5 PSI, the Polaris crew will only be at 1.6 times the partial pressure of oxygen at sea level.

I’d have thought ULA would do more than just turn it off and on again when the problem occurred in the past. Seems like there’s no way they’d mess with the design at this point in time though.
