OSINT: Buscador 2.0 Release:
Q: When I was in grade school, my parents signed a release allowing the school to publish my full name, school assignments/awards, and picture on their website. Since then, the websites been archived and cannot be removed. Besides that, the school says they wouldn’t remove it anyway since they have a valid release signed. Now, when I search my true name, pictures of me and the school I went to and my hometown and old friends and such are all readily available. Is this something I should be concerned about? Is there anything that can be done to remove it or bury it under disinformation or something?
Q: I've been using Lastpass for a few years and have recently started looking into non-cloud options like KeePassXC. I just came across a few services, like LessPass, MasterPassword, and getVau.lt, which take contextual data like the site and your login ID along with a master password to calculate passwords for services. Because of this there is no need to store passwords and you can even generate a password directly from the websites by entering the site, login, and your master password. What are your thoughts on something like this?
