Good morning to everyone who has no fear that a nation-state actor has seized evidence of criminal activities from their parler account.
hmm, wonder if the asshats at parler are going to notify their users that there has been a serious data breach as is required under the GDPR...they only have a few days to comply iirc
@djsundog however they were complying with the request part, it was incredibly easy to download all data they have on a user
@kemonine archiveteam scraped them before they went down and got ~70TB of data, including unredacted exif data and, from what I'm hearing, photo IDs
@kemonine They were booted by their authentication service, and apparently some of their backend wasn't prepared to deal with the failure modes resulting from that. From what I've read, the password reset function just accepted any new password, which was used to gain initial access to an account with admin privileges.
@djsundog that would require possession of a soul and/or a conscience, of which I suspect they have neither
@djsundog GDPR only applies to countries in the EU though, doesn't it?
Btw fun, unrelated fact: I play in a band called Sun Dog
@Schwadoodle I think it applies to EU residents rather than companies, but I am neither and could be wrong.
(and that's awesome! Do y'all have any recordings online?)
@djsundog My impression is that it's companies but I'm not sure either.
We have precisely one recording on Spotify and YouTube. It should appear if you search for "Gnoll's Lament". It's kind of D&D-inspired proto-metal/doom
the way I understand it, if you handle data of data subjects who reside in the EU, the #GDPR applies to you: https://gdpr.eu/compliance-checklist-us-companies/
Omg this Parler downloading thing.
I am just now waking up and reading about it and this is awesome.
