  1. Past hour
  2. Thank you for your kind words @hpwamr, and you too @Mr.Scienceman2000, but I am a ReactOS user too. I don't use mac or ubuntu/linux though.
  3. I think because 1069 people didn't have any of these apps installed (or the apps couldn't be detected)?
  4. So, if I understand this, Zero is good, in that, it didn't detect anything? But, Why was my Serpent52 seen 1069 times? Perhaps I'm not understanding the results. 92.24% Unique.
  5. Aerolight can be activated with Winaero Tweaker ( for example )
  6. Chrome 90 (Windows 10, macOS Big Sur) Ubuntu: Only Firefox and Tor browser.
  7. It didn't work in Pale Moon. See also: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=26860
  8. It is not possible to claim that Linux/Android are a mitigation to the bug. Instead it is correct to say that the test fails. The developer states that the test succeeds with Ubuntu 20.04: https://github.com/fingerprintjs/external-protocol-flooding The mitigations to the bug are those that I have already cited, therefore a script-blocker.
  9. That's probably because Android has a Linux kernel. https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/HEAD/docs/linux/sandboxing.md Type: chrome://sandbox/ in Chrome/Chromium and I saw this:
  10. What PERCENTAGE did it give you? Ignore the detected apps, it is the percentage that is telling you if you are "unique" or not, unless I'm mistaken. It didn't find any of my apps but only listed me at 92.35% I have Word installed (but it is version 2003). If the Adobe icon is for Acrobat Reader, I have it installed (but it is version 9.5.5). But on the other hand, if I have to DISABLE extensions that run by default just to get this thing to work, then I'm being PROTECTED in the wild and this demo was kind of pointless, IMHO.
  11. Today
  12. No surprise. Unfortunately, the bugs are there and always will be. We must do our best to take care of privacy and security, without becoming paranoid.
  13. If for that matter, it doesn't even work in Android. But that's OT in this thread
  14. Their script starts its "job" once you start typing the reCAPTCHA in the input box... On FirefoxESR 52.9.1, they successfully detected an association with the Telegram desktop app (i.e. Fx can handle ".tg" links...); FWIW, I had only tested the app some years ago, currently it doesn't even support Vista (or XP) ...
  15. It doesn't work in Chromium on Linux (it "detected" all 24 apps ,haha)
  16. Vulnerability affects many browsers. P.S. If you like you can put the test to the attention of W members.
  17. @Sampei.Nihira This vulnerability has already been brought to the attention of Firefox developers: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1711084
  18. NM28 + Noscript: Schemeflood.com script allowed temporarily: image hosting
  19. OTOH, it doesn't find anything here in latest Serpent 52.9.0 (portable installation) with uBO-legacy: I've given them more than five minutes...
  20. @nicolaasjan If you change browsers the identifier should remain the same. This is at least the intention of the test developer. We take every precaution possible (Noscript.....etc......) to protect our privacy.
  21. They discovered Teamviewer, even in the Tor browser...
  22. If you told me 20 years ago that in 2021 I'd have a television in almost every room, I wouldn't believe you. At least I don't have a computer in every room. :p
  23. That sounds like a better idea that to have to determine what you want your empty WSUS to be, physical or a VM.
  24. Yes. I posted a screenshot comparing the digital signatures of two servicing stack updates for Windows 6.0 in this September 2019 post. The April 2019 SSU was dual-signed, whereas the September 2019 SSU was signed with sha256 exclusively. SHA-2 support is required to install the second update. Here’s another Microsoft article for inquiring minds.
  25. I gotta give Windows 10 some credit recently, the enablement packages make it really easy to keep one install for more than 6 months unlike builds before 1809. Especially with how 21H1 is also an enablement package, its very easy to rollback, you just uninstall the update. Windows 10 has gotten better in certain scenarios, but in most cases is still a disaster. 21H2 is completely eyecandy changes.
  26. I continue the discussion regarding privacy that I started in the UBO thread. Unfortunately, some websites will try very hard to violate your privacy. And this task of theirs will often be facilitated by using very popular and well-known browsers. This test below shows that: https://schemeflood.com/ With our browsers this task is more difficult, but possible.
