TL;DR: HP had a keylogger in the keyboard driver. The keylogger saved scan codes to a WPP trace. The logging was disabled by default but could be enabled by setting a registry value (UAC required). Get the list of affected hardware and patch here: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05827409
UPD: Turns out it’s not HP’s failure. Synaptics released a statement on the issue: https://www.synaptics.com/company/blog/touchpad-security-brief
From the statement I can conclude that other vendors (Lenovo, Dell, …) might be affected too. To check if your driver contains ‘the debug tool’ run “findstr.exe /I ulScanCode SynTP.sys” from the command line: if the driver is clean findstr won’t print anything. Also it worth to note that the “proprietary binary format” mentioned in the statement is easy to decode and is not necessarily “a rolling memory buffer” but might be a persistent file.
Sometime ago someone asked me if I can figure out how to control HP’s laptop keyboard backlit. I asked for the keyboard driver SynTP.sys, opened it in IDA and after some browsing noticed a few interesting strings:
My video overview of the RetroShare Peer-To-Peer Social Network
This open source and privacy focussed social network offers a lot more functionality than most other social networks especially in the P2P space. In this video I explain how to get connected to other peers, I give an overview of all the functions it can perform, and end off touring around the interface and showing how it works.
Functions include Chatrooms, Mail, Channels, Forums, Boards with more to come in the next version.

IPv6 Online Port Scanner
IPv6Scanner is a port scanner that allows you to probe a server for open, closed or filtered ports. You can specify a host name, IPv4 or IPv6 address. The purpose of this tool is to enable the administrators to verify security. Use with the intent to compromise third-party hosts is not allowed. For this reason the number of systems that can be scanned in a period is limited
magnetico is the first autonomous (self-hosted) BitTorrent DHT search engine suite that is designed for end-users. The suite consists of two packages:
magneticod: Autonomous BitTorrent DHT crawler and metadata fetcher.
magneticow: Lightweight web interface for magnetico.
Both programs, combined together, allows anyone with a decent Internet connection to access the vast amount of torrents waiting to be discovered within the BitTorrent DHT space, without relying on any central entity.
magnetico liberates BitTorrent from the yoke of centralised trackers & web-sites and makes it truly decentralised. Finally!
Easy installation & minimal requirements:
Pre-compiled static binaries and Docker images are provided.
Root access is not required to install or to use.
Both programs work out of the box, and magneticow can be used without a web-server too.
Detailed, step-by-step manual to guide you through the installation.
No reliance on any centralised entity:
magneticod trawls the BitTorrent DHT by "going" from one node to another, and fetches the metadata using the nodes without using trackers.
Unlike client-server model that web applications use, P2P networks are chaotic and magneticod is designed to handle all the operational errors accordingly.
Currently on paper, wait for the v1.0!
High performance implementation in Go:
magneticod utilizes every bit of your resources to discover as many infohashes & metadata as possible.
Built-in lightweight web interface:
magneticow features a lightweight web interface to help you access the database without getting on your way.
BitTorrent, being a distributed P2P file sharing protocol, has long suffered because of the centralised entities that people depended on for searching torrents (websites) and for discovering other peers (trackers). Introduction of DHT (distributed hash table) eliminated the need for trackers, allowing peers to discover each other through other peers and to fetch metadata from the leechers & seeders in the network. magnetico is the finishing move that allows users to search for torrents in the network, hence removing the need for centralised torrent websites.
Secondo la mia modestissima opinione Freenet, un progetto che ha origine molti anni fa, ad oggi è concettualmente l’unica e sola overlay network che sia realmente resistente alla censura (oltre a bittorrent che però ha caratteristiche diverse). Oggi ho scoperto che è in fase beta la app per Android per freenet. Da provare.

Libtorrent has just released version 2.0, which is a potential game-changer. The BitTorrent library, which is used by popular clients including uTorrent Web, Deluge, and qBittorrent, adds support for the new BitTorrent v2 protocol specification. This opens the door to various new features and introduces a new torrent format, which creates a separate swarm.
libtorrent-logoMillions of people use BitTorrent every day but only a few know all the ins-and-outs of how it works.
Meanwhile, an even smaller group is actively involved in shaping the future of the file-sharing protocol.
BitTorrent was first made public by inventor Bram Cohen nearly two decades ago. While it was swiftly embraced by the masses, the protocol itself was far from perfect. Over the years many new features were added, including DHT, UDP trackers, peer-exchange, and support for streaming.
Manyverse is a social network mobile app with features you would expect: posts, threads, likes, profiles, etc. But it's not running in the cloud owned by a company, instead, your friends' posts and all your social data live entirely in your phone.
