⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️

There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.

Æ Roadmap

  • Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically)
  • Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
  • Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
  • Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
  • .onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
  • CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
  • Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
  • Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)

  • Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.

    If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.

    You can also email me via [email protected]

    Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.

    Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021! - aediot



    Raven

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Raven Adler is a posturing female whitehat hacker. She had her laptop running OS X taken over at Schmoocon, and pushed forward whitehat vulnerability assessment state-of-the-art by several years when she announced "Zero day can happen to anyone"

    Raven's 10 Minutes of Fame

    Raven earned the attention of retards around the world when she came to the conclusion that her shoddy job of securing her laptop at a convention infested with ex-hackers was somehow Apple's fault. Through endlessly circular logic she deduced that the reason that her laptop was hacked was that "zero day can happen to anyone," not that she was too retarded to make sure that her shit was actually secure.

    It turns out Raven lent her laptop to her boyfriend only to have it destroyed mere minutes later by an elite hacker who managed to somehow wander into the convention. When she complained to Apple about the security flaw, she was apparently laughed off the phone by the person on the other end. Now butthurt she complained to the internet and was thoroughly ignored:


       
     
    I didn't go public with it because I wanted a smoking gun first. Security is very much a 'show me' industry, and I didn't want to make claims that I couldn't substantiate. I did approach Apple, and they pretty much blew me off. I sent them a detailed event report, offered up my system for forensic analysis, and offered to help in any way I could. They went to the press, gave a reporter my name (I had not gone to the press) and dished some crap about how I let my boyfriend use my computer and he probably did something to disable my firewall and cause it to auto-own itself or something. Dude. My boyfriend does not have admin permissions on my machine, for starters. Way to help, Apple.

    Apple's response

    WTF is Zero Day?

    The concept of Zero Day goes all the way back to the beginning of software development. The theory is that evil "black hat" hackers with access to unreleased software can find exploits before the release date, and can then magically bring torrents of ruination upon the heads of the unsuspecting public. Normal people avoid this by:

    1. Avoiding betatests at all costs
    2. Waiting for corporations to iron out all the bugs before updating.
    3. Using common sense.

    It's interesting to note that using the "zero day" argument is a good excuse for those too lazy to properly secure their systems. GOBBLES pointed this out to Raven at SchmooCon, much to the entertainment of people who find this sort of stuff interesting.
