    Bravo on the troll thread. People really took the bait on this one. No 42 year old with the mental capacity to type out a somewhat grammatically correct post in the correct sub-forum on here could possibly be dumb enough to do what you described.

    Networking & Security is the main forum and the only sub forum to that is "Networking Gallery" ?

    Ok this is funny. I can imagine this is a crappy situation, but that will hopefully teach you not to use other people's devices to do questionable stuff, you can never be too sure that you really cleared your tracks properly. This must be so awkward. lmao.

    Keep in mind phones are full of spy stuff, everything you do is tracked in some way or the other. Somehow, something must have come up based on your browsing history. Maybe she got a targeted ad related to porn that hinted towards the phone having been used for that. Could be a cleverly written ad like "next time you search porn, use our service" or w/e. Information what what you do on a device tends to uhh, stick around.

    You may have also forgotten to clear the history in the browser, or forgot to close some tabs etc. Tor won't save you here, because the phone OS itself is what is spying on you, so it sees everything in it's clear text state. Tor will protect you from anyone eavesdropping between you and the end point and will buy you some anonymity at the end point, but it will not protect you at the device itself. (that goes for any encryption really)

    I thought the man (?) has already been exposed as a large green humanoid normally found near bridges collecting toll.

    Depending on what (company) management software is on the phone it can track whatever you are doing including your location. Good luck.

    ROFL!! Is there something you know that we don't?

    That sounds dangerous as anything living where it's that dangerous, so I think the porn on the phone is the last thing to worry about right now. Just don't do it again, and if you need to get a thin client with ewf enabled--that will wipe everything on reboot. ;)

    I'm under a NDA so I can't say anything, other than I work for the IT department of a Canadian medical staffing provider based out of Toronto...

    Does TOR block/reroute DNS requests? I imagine sending a DNS request for porntube.com might raise a few red flags.

    Idiot if not trolling. Substitute laptop for phone and what is the difference? It is a work device, not a personal device. Anyone surfing porn on a work device deserves whatever consequences come their way. "Loaning" it to a family member is not an excuse, having it stolen is.

    I was curious about this myself, so I used TOR and loaded Wireshark, it looks like TOR traffic is just a jumble of TCP data (encrypted data basically) and there is no special request or anything that is separate from these blocks of data. No DNS queries or anything like that.

    Just tested quickly though. I think if you want to be extra safe you would use TOR on a separate VM and then use a VPN. Setup the VM to restrict all outbound traffic except for going to your VPN's IP/port.

    Yeah if you are doing questionable stuff on a device you don't control/own, then there's plenty of other ways what you're doing can be tracked.

    I would have deleted / locked this thread a long time ago.

    I dropped out of computer programming, so I know what's possible on the stealth / programming side of the story. I only took one theoretical data communications course ( 20 years ago ) so I was hoping for more of a technical discussion about security / networking / encryption / Tor but after spending a few days reading, I realised that it was deeply esoteric and I could easily enough research it myself ( I'm lazy ). The Defcon videos were pretty funny:



    As for the Psychology of, "Why would you do ABC" if knew "XYZ might happen?". I was born in 1975 and I knew when I was ~17 ( ~1992 ) from studying Advanced Chemistry that there would be an environmental collapse ( it seemed obvious at the time ). In 2012 ( somewhat unfortunately for me ) I started reading about Climate Change, so I'm acutely aware of how little time we have left on the planet. While on vacation, most recently, I read Exxon ( Exxon Mobile's ) internal documents:

    The book: https://insideclimatenews.org/content/exxon-road-not-taken

    ( You can read a free summary of most of the 66-page book: ) https://insideclimatenews.org/content/exxon-the-road-not-taken


    You can watch the planet destabilizing on a Youtube channel called, "Understanding Climate Change": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo-r5Q-5TWB43oLI8eZ6euA

    For reference materials, Google Guy McPherson. Jennifer Hynes "Methane Monster II ~ Demise of the Arctic" was very down to earth.

    One of the (many) Psychological impacts of Climate Change is "increased risk-taking behaviour". Reference: http://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2017/03/climate-mental-health.aspx

    I’ve never seen a thread provoke those in Genmay to venture outside. Well done.

    I’m awarding this thread a certified Genmay hot dog.

    No. Just No. Every time this has been tried it has gone poorly. In fact I think each time I have seen it done the person who got the GenMay sub ended up being banned.

    Woah..woah..woah. Wait a minute..

    Did you just blame the work-notification generated from 42 year old you looking at porn, on your mother's work phone, while on vacation, in a third world country.. on climate change?

    See.. you couldn't leave your first trolling alone but had to shoot your wad for the stars in a vain attempt to reignite this. Sad.

    Azureth has been abnormally quiet. We’re looking for a replacement and found a viable candidate.

    The My Little Pony movie he was blathering about was out last month. Maybe he got nabbed with a posse of degenerates for being "too wound up" with the release.

    No. It's not trolling. It makes it so much better when you accept it's not a troll and it is 100% real.

    Fuck yea. I'm going to go jerk off at work while watching porn on a company laptop in the conference room. Damn climate change!

    As an aside (and I don't see how this could go any more off topic), this is why people can't take climate change seriously. Some people claim it's the end of days.... then jerk off.
