In Response to Offensive Destruction of Attack Assets

CircleID CircleID: It is certainly true that DDoS and hacking are on the rise; there have been a number of critical hacks in the last few years, including apparent attempts to alter the outcome of elections. The reaction has been a rising tide of fear, and an ever increasing desire to "do something." The something that seems to be emerging is, however, not necessarily the best possible "something." Specifically, governments are now talking about attempting to "wipe out" the equipment used in attacks —

Berlin was studying what legal changes were needed to allow authorities to purge stolen data from third-party servers, and to potentially destroy servers used to carry out cyber attacks. "We believe it is necessary that we are in a position to be able to wipe out these servers if the providers and the owners of the servers are not ready to ensure that they are not used to carry out attacks," Maassen said. — Reuters / 4 May 2017

"Wiping out" (destroying?) a server because the owner cannot ensure the server will be used in a way the government agrees with — sounds like a good idea, right? And how do we make certain such laws are not extended to destroy the servers of those who host "hate speech" and "fake news" at some point in the future? Will we have server burnings to match the printing press burnings of yesteryear (like this, or this, or this).

What if the owner of that server is actually the proud owner of a newly minted "connected" television set or toaster, and who does not know enough about technology to secure the device properly? Is it okay to "wipe out" the server then?

The obvious answer to such objections is that the capability to "wipe out a server" will only be used when authorized through the proper channels. Scope creep, however, is always real, and people who work for the government are still people who have desires and fears, and who make mistakes.

Maybe being able to "wipe out" a server remotely, and break into third party networks to erase data you don't think they should have, is all justified. But there seems to be some dangerous precedent being set here, and this story will not end in a happy place for anyone on the Internet.

Domain Shane Domain Shane: A comprehensive look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the auction list posted on May 9, 2017. 
If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve.  I’m only showing where the price was when the auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

The Ultimate Last-Minute .MOM Day Gift

I Want My Name I Want My Name: For many of us around the world, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, meaning you have just a handful of days to cobble something together for your mom (or wife, if you have kids). Sure, Amazon has two-day shipping, and there’s always the gift card to get a massage at the nearest spa, but I have a gift idea that’s both thoughtful and creative. And you can make it in those hours you’re already burning flipping through tweets and Facebook posts.
(Adapted from our earlier post, The Ultimate Laaaaaaast-Minute Holiday Gift):
Step 1: Get a domain name
And not just any domain name – Mother’s Day calls for a fancy new .MOM domain. Just do it.
Step 2: Pick a simple website building app
There are so many platforms you could use to host and build your site I couldn’t possibly list them all, but for simplicity’s sake, I’d recommend going with something here(https://iwantmyname.com/services/portfolio-hosting/) or here(https://iwantmyname.com/services/website-builder/) because you can add them to your iwantmyname domain in just a couple clicks. Any of the platforms work, but be mindful of a few things: cost (some platforms are free, while some have monthly fees), CMS simplicity (drag-and-drop tools are nice for non-coders), quality support (you’re in a time crunch, so quick answers are necessary).
Step 3: Pick the best photos and build on them
If you’re like me, you probably have 1000+ photos of your kids from the past year to choose from (fuzzy puppy kids also work, if your mom is into that). I tend to like them all, but some are clearly better than others. Or, if you want to get sentimental, find some old photos of your mom/your childhood and scan them in.
To make the best .MOM photo gallery, pick your best 20-50 photos and do a little cleanup. If some pics are crooked, straighten them. If there are obvious issues with color or lighting, most photo editors can correct them with automatic enhance tools.
Then, once your photos are selected, in the CMS you’re using, write up little thoughts next to your favorites. Make some notes funny, some sentimental – don’t be verbose, but those little content nuggets do make a difference.
Step 4: Deliver the site on time
Whatever you do, don’t ship this over via text message at 7pm on Mother’s Day. For this site to work, it has to be buttoned up and in your mom’s inbox before she wakes up. Timing really is the difference between this looking like a thoughtful gift and a last-minute slop job. Don’t mess this up!

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday May 10th

Domain Shane Domain Shane: We’re always looking for ideas of new segments on DomainSherpa.  Is there anything you would like to see/hear about that we’re not covering?   We had some suggestions in the comments of last week’s show that were pretty good and I thought I would ask the same here.  We’re going on hiatus for a few weeks while Mike produces DNSeattle so we’ll have a little time to mix it up.  Save the “drop Shane from the show” and “do anything but the boring shit you do now” comments.  That stuff is obvious.  Looking for something a little more interesting.  While you think about it, here are today’s names.    Click for Current Price.

XSIO.com    Excess IO.  Getting some good bids
ProPackage.com    I think upgrade for anything.   Upgrade to the pro package
