get on the level of my 6yo who’s google image searching “cute ducks”

just watched a video of someone explicitly denying the anitcapitalist lens of Mother 3 and I think I'm going to turn into the kind of person that leaves essay length YT comments

She is also vaguely paranoid that her phone is listening to all of her conversations because targeted ads for her are so effective, but it is not surpring given that she sends everyone one of her thoughts directly to Google hq.

I'm glad she is utilising the technology in a way that works for her, and I have to respect that sort of chaotic energy.

My sister, rather than using a notes app or a text editor, will type all of her thoughts into a Google search with intentional spelling mistakes to make sure that the results page displays her full paragraph search back to her.

With the enough digging into the decompiled apk, the secondary layer of encryption could probably be determined. If an attacker monitored network traffic, they could still mess with the device. Still, one of the more secure IoT devices on the market.

Cons:
- Everything is done over http. It's the biggest downside. Network sniffing means that requests can still be intercepted and replayed (though modification would be difficult without understanding the proprietary layer of encryption)

Show thread

Pros:
- The Tapo app has worked really hard to prevent mitm attacks. There is custom SSL pinning that's obfuscated which made it difficult to patch the apk.
- Commands to the device require an app token
- Commands to the device are base 64 encoded as well as a second layer of encryption (which seems to be proprietary / i haven't done enough digging)

Did some hacking, and have mixed feelings about the tp-link p100.
