For context, one of my favorite people on the fediverse who I don't understand at all is bot. She's active on http://seal.cafe currently (hosted by friend of the site & cat enjoyer @kroner), and is constantly getting into fights with lots of people about random issues; I enjoy these even without context because I'm a fan of incendiary rhetoric and bot is a world class shit talker who also seems to feel strongly about the things she choses to argue about.
If you don't take my word for it, here's a snapshot of recent box posts
You might have seen that http://poa.st and http://bae.st, two popular instances on the free speech zone of the fediverse got hacked recently. We had a small thread here that didn't get the attention it deserved but there's a lot of rightoid seethe going on. Reminder that http://rdrama.cc is still the best instance that has all the marseys and has never been hacked; shout out @nekobit. If you remember the http://chudbuds.lol hack/leak, you'll know that private messages sent on the fediverse/Activity Pub are not end-to-end encrypted, so naturally lots of alt-tech wannabe e-celebs got their DMs leaked from this. For further context, graf is the admin/owner of http://poa.st who has recently feuded with Null and Crunklord420, over some dumb shit (watch MATI from 3 weeks ago if you want some context); he also defederated http://rdrama.cc over a meme nose emoji that he called doxing his admin (his admin runs a lolicon posting instance and also had a falling out with graf, so the image isn't doxing anymore but http://rdrama.cc is still blocked because he's a bitch)
So here's the meat. Box has been posting about intercourse pests that use http://poa.st for well over a year at this point. As with many posts of someone claiming someone else on the internet is a sex-pest, I was initially credulous, until this leak came out in which graf goes to bat for a guy who he says admitted to raping a minor to him directly. You could potentially get away with just staying silent on this issue, in my eyes, especially if you're wearing the mask of a free speech extremist alt-tech nerd, but graf is not that. He blocked http://rdrama.cc initially from sending any information to his instance, and later blocked both sent and recieved information from our instance to his. He blocked http://kiwifarms.cc under the pretense that http://kf.cc allowed cp on its servers, despite the fact that the 3rd party instance he claimed was the source of this cp had the policy set against it on the http://kf.cc server as it did on http://poa.st. Null sperging on the graf question about a month ago here.
Onion link for anyone who wants to explore more because kiwi farms is powered by a cat on one of those big wheels where they can run if they feel like it
I have done my journ*listic duty and asked bot about this revelation, the response was incredibly keyed
TLDR: Graf is homosexual (bad kind). Bot @ http://seal.cafe is vindicated. I am always right about fediverse tyrants being r-slur autists. Crunklord420 keeps being based and Terrypilled.
@Aevann, IDK if this is enough of a rightoid exposé to qualify for grant marseybux, but I love you
Someone remind me to pin award this in the morning so that people see this because I have to spend some marsey bux and also this is good drama. k thanks
Jump in the discussion.
No email address required.
I initially thought this was social engineering because graf is an oversocialized homo but turns out it was a real exploit in pleroma. rDrama was effected too sadly. https://rdrama.cc/notice/AW29QC8VrV7GjzcT0C
also next time if some fedi drama happens mention me too, someone should make a !fedizens or something,im new and idk how.
I'm more interested from a perspective of digging up dirt on people who are asses. But yeah, from what I've skimmed it seems like a pretty severe security flaw. I, as a very principled actor, have nothing to hide because I don't DM e-thots or anyone, and I will post any incendiary thought that I do have publicly in hope of causing a heck thread.
It costs 10,000 dramacoin to make a ping group, but I'd kick in some virtual points if people are interested, but there's probably like 10 people here that actively follow fediverse drama outside of big happenings like http://mastodon.lol.
It was attempted but not abused. There were no DMs or sensitive emails anyway because dramanauts aren't that r-slurred
i patched it anyway and dropped old oauth tokens
