www.qubes-os.org: Agency

As www.qubes-os.org belongs to a somehow popular Agency niche, we tried to snap a short phrase from their website to see what they feature about themselves:

Joanna Rutkowska Qubes OS & Invisible Things Lab

While the sentence above may reveal what this website does, there is a chance its mandate may expand beyond that. Here is a www.qubes-os.org review, below.

www.qubes-os.org Review

The Scam Detector’s algorithm finds www.qubes-os.org having a medium-authoritative rank of 64.2. This rating means that the business could be classified as Known. Standard. Active…

Our Validator gave the rank based on 50 relevant factors. These include, but not limited to, a range of elements from the quality of the customer service to small red flags or third parties affecting the website (even when the owners are not aware). In this case, the Agency niche is irrelevant, as malicious attacks happen easier when the security of a website is weak.

Other factors we usually look at are the IP address, modern/old technology used for the website build, SSL certificate, and - most importantly - presence on blacklisted domains directories. You could see more technical details referring to www.qubes-os.org in the above box.

their reply:

thanks so much for your review, but please try again anytime!! That barely happens and never stays! We have over 100,000 people PER DAY who access our site and we have great servers. We have tons of people thanking us EVERY DAY for our service (exposing the scammers) and I think leaving a 1-star review because you could not access the site for a few seconds is not fair (unless you have other hidden reasons, which sometimes happens). If you feel like giving us a second chance, feel free to check the website. You won’t regret it. THANK YOU!

I thought the error message, which I got once, might be from the current server malware crisis.

I also wondered if the Scam Detector Site was malware in inside. I never tried to see if it left tracking cookies or where it tried to connect to on the internet, or if if it tried to scan my computer.

I thought if more knowledgeable folks here felt Scam Detector site was legitimate, they might want to encourage them to have a higher opinion score of the Qubes sites.

I am thinking of how we decide a site is - not legitimate.

We look at who owns it.
Where the website, company represented gets their money.

In my case, I would guess any website that tries to deliver a ‘Drive By’ bit of software, is evil.
Legitimate websites which we go to are not much better. Such as a website I buy from. Amazon ends up installing cookies to browse their site. Part of being in this world.

I am not the expert in how websites should be categorized.

Insofar as blocking websites. I know our local McDonalds offers a fast WiFi, but blocks, for our own protection, free software. I can look at a Linux website, but I can not download a Linux Distro, or do updates on the McDs connection. Used to refuse to update Firefox.

I get that as a kid friendly place McDonalds prefers some movies not be in sight, like porn or violent. Still they do not stop a VPN from doing whatever. Just makes some things more difficult or detailed.

At one time, I could go the website for Tails, but I could not download it. I wrote to McDonalds and pointed out that Tor, which Tails uses, was developed by the US Navy, and that these kinds of sites received US government funding as it facilitated Whistle Blowers to come forward with what they know. For whatever reason, the last I tried. I could download Tor again at McDs. (They use AT&T)

So my suspicion is that free WiFi use will eventually require we use an OS, software which helps to facilitate spying on us. But I am often wrong.

if possible, they can install software without our permission
but that for future, now they block website is make user safe, however blocking linux and firefox is very abnormal

just a pieces of fake news

ppc, good buddy.

AT&T is the provider of software for McDonalds WiFi, although they say they are doing what their Customers tell them. AT&T is known for close working relationship with the NSA.

Perhaps McDonalds WiFi blocking started because some individuals would spend hours every day at places with free WiFi downloading movies, sharing movies.

Websites like Debian I can look at, post on forums, but not download ISO, or updates, or software.

Two years ago I did download Qubes at McDs, the block did not realize it was something similar to what it usually blocks.

Also Github is blocked for downloads, not reading.

From the Tor wiki. Tor (network) - Wikipedia


The core principle of Tor, Onion routing, was developed in the mid-1990s by United States Naval Research Laboratory employees, mathematician Paul Syverson, and computer scientists Michael G. Reed and David Goldschlag, to protect U.S. intelligence communications online.[8] Onion routing is implemented by encryption in the application layer of the communication protocol stack, nested like the layers of an onion. The alpha version of Tor, developed by Syverson and computer scientists Roger Dingledine and Nick Mathewson[9] and then called The Onion Routing project (which later simply became “Tor”, as an acronym for the former name[10]), was launched on 20 September 2002. The first public release occurred a year later.[11]

In 2004, the Naval Research Laboratory released the code for Tor under a free license, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) began funding Dingledine and Mathewson to continue its development.[9] In 2006, Dingledine, Mathewson, and five others founded The Tor Project, a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) research-education nonprofit organization responsible for maintaining Tor. The EFF acted as The Tor Project’s fiscal sponsor in its early years, and early financial supporters of The Tor Project included the U.S. Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor and International Broadcasting Bureau, Internews, Human Rights Watch, the University of Cambridge, Google, and Netherlands-based Stichting NLnet.[12][13]

Another suggestion of US government funding.

I do not immediately find a source to indicate that ‘Tails Linux’ receives some funding from US Government. Still, some parts of the US government supports whistle blowers, and as ppc surely knows, parts of the US government wants to put all Whistle Blowers in jail.

I believe that McDonalds feels they should, like google, acquire saleable information that allows for targeted marketing as an additional revenue stream.

Good that ppc requires I make clear where I get information from.

umm, what
i’m don’t know much about at&t

just want to make sure that you don’t believe tor is maintained by us naval :slightly_smiling_face:
