The financial services firm might soon use a software similar to ChatGPT that will use artificial intelligence to offer investment advice. It has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) to trademark IndexGPT. Here is the filing:

"Foreign tourists who behave inappropriately, do activities that are not allowed in their visa permit, use crypto as a means of payment and violate other provisions will be dealt with firmly," Bali Governor Wayan Koster said at a tourism development press conference. He also reiterated that the use of currencies other than rupiah as a means of payment in Indonesia was prohibited. "Strict actions range from deportation, administrative sanctions, criminal penalties, closure of business premises and other tough sanctions," Mr Koster said.

Lawyer “greatly regrets” use of ChatGPT in court, says he was “unaware of the possibility that its content could be false”
The court dismissed the claim and used the word “bogus” to describe the quotes and citations the US attorney provided, which were sourced from ChatGPT. “Six of the submitted cases appear to be bogus judicial decisions with bogus quotes and bogus internal citations.” The judge further claimed that certain cases referenced in the submissions did not exist, and there was an instance where a docket number on a filing was mixed up with another court filing.

The XSS vulnerability can be leveraged to obtain unauthorized access to a website and can lead to user data theft or a full site takeover.

Related to the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan, a joint report of international security researchers says that the malware by Israeli company NSO Group was used to spy on a former Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia (the Ombudsperson), two Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) Armenian Service journalists, a United Nations official, a former spokesperson of Armenia’s Foreign Ministry (now an NGO worker), and seven other representatives of Armenian civil society.

While the Chinese government and social media companies have denounced racism, it remains pervasive online. News about Black people in China regularly triggers xenophobic comments directed at what some fear to be an influx of Black immigrants. Chinese women who date Black people or have mixed-race children have also drawn sexist attacks online. It’s unclear what has driven the recent spike in racist speech.

Has anyone set up unRAID for their home?
I tend to go overkill when it comes to home networking and server infrastructure. I'm considering replacing my QNap, with what I assert is the world's worst software, with a homebrew and unRAID. I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience doing this or not. For a few years I ran a raid 5 array on an old gaming PC, and then I swapped to qnap for "what if there is a fire, how do I grab and run with a computer that can act as an anchor for a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier". That's worked for the last 5 years, sort of, but I swear they make everything 10x harder than it has any right to be. I was considering 4 x 10tb hdds and 3x2TB Evo 990 Pros, in a cache pool and/or 2x2TB in an SSD pool for docker containers and 1 2TB for the cache pool. I'm just not entirely sure where unRAID itself ends up going; the cache pool? Aside from that question, any other "gotchas" that you've experienced? Any comparisons with qnap would be greatly appreciated, too.

Don't use it any more myself, but my inner graphic designer gets really excited about new logos

"They pay more for such work than in ‘white’ jobs”: Interview with a crypto scam investment spammer
'Krebs on Security' publishes an interview with a Russian hacker responsible for a series of aggressive crypto spam campaigns that recently prompted several large Mastodon communities to temporarily halt new registrations. According to the hacker, their spam software has been in private use until the last few weeks, when it was released as open source code.

A report presented by US Senator Elizabeth Warren shows how Big Tech lobbyists redefine the concept of “digital trade” and use it to protect the profitability of their enterprises and make it impossible for signatory countries in trade deals to use legislative ends to protect other things, like people’s privacy or the rule of law. It largely confirms the revolving-door tech lobbyism investigated by sociologist Wendy Li. Here is Sen. Warren’s report (pdf): REPORT.pdf Here is tve research paper by Wendy Li:

If we lose the right to freely use and enjoy creative works, we open the way for a new world of extreme commercialization where artists must pay for the privilege to create, and people find the costs and barriers to information and culture rising ever upwards. Let’s embrace this opportunity for change presented by Generative AI and transform traditional economic structures to ensure prosperity, and lower the barriers to enjoying the fruits of our diverse and vibrant shared culture.

Anyone can be duped by scammers. This is a huge problem that needs solutions.

I found this new app called Mlem, and its on Alpha on testflight. A lot of things are missing, like comment and posting but they are on the roadmap. Take a look.

The hundreds of millions of dollars invested in Xinjiang surveillance created a system of digital enclosure that is part of the structure of dispossession that confronts Uyghurs, but the regime in Beijing wants the data of the colonized, too, a researcher says. This collection of data has significant consequences for the expansion of dataveillance instruments globally.

Make decryption screen at boot bigger on LM21.1?
cross-posted from: > Can this be done using `sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup` and selecting another font/font size? Really it's just for aesthetic purposes more than anything else.

    We’re a collective of individuals upset with the way social media has been traditionally governed. A severe lack of moderation has led to major platforms like Facebook to turn into political machinery focused on disinformation campaigns as a way to make profit off of users. Websites with ineffective moderation allow hate speech to proliferate and contribute to the erosion of minority rights and safe spaces. Our goal with Beehaw is to demonstrate and promote a healthier environment.

    Some thoughts on our philosophy:

    Operating our server costs money. If you donate, you should know that 100% of the costs will go towards server time, licensing costs, and artwork. In the future if we need to hire developers or other labor, it would be sourced through the Open Collective Foundation, and it would be transparent to the community before any changes were made.

    As a news aggregator and a social media outlet, with a focus on being a safe and accepting space, we strive to create a positive social impact. We will, also, help to connect underprivileged and minority individuals with education and civic participation by promoting a healthier online experience.
