Hi, I have created gpg keys with thunderbird 94.0b1. I need to use those keys with GnuPG. How can I achive this? Keys are not stored in .gnupg directory nor visible by gpg. I tried to export private key backup and import it to gpg but the passphrase I need to provide when using keys is different than the one I'm prompt to provide during exporting back up. Does anyone know how to solve that problem? Or maybe I'm doing something wrong? Thanks from advance

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

This email is to warn you that I have had my email address penetrated and all my emails and folders deleted. I have since deleted Thunderbird with the following address from my system. I am running Bitdefender Total Security which did not pickup the intrusion. The email address that was hacked is " brucens@xtra.co.nz ". I hope you have a web site that can be used to alert other users. I have no idea how this occurred. I opened Thunderbird in the normal manner to discover the empty shell.

Thanks and regards Bruce

Thunderbird program password loophole?

Hi. Has anyone noticed that the password you can set within the program doesn't actually do anything to stop someone from reading the e-mails? I noticed this by just clicking "x" to exit the notification of having to enter the password. After pressing "x" 3 times, it didn't ask me again and I can freely look around all the e-mails I have stored.

Is that supposed to happen? I'd rather if the password stopped anyone from being unable to read the e-mails stored. Isn't that the idea of having a password on the program?

Kind regards,

Geo

After updating to Firefox 93.0 , I'm getting this error constantly when trying to access my Ubiquiti wireless equipment:


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 10.1.0.1:8xxx. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.'


Everything worked fine before update, and still works fine on Chrome etc.

I've tried turning off all security settings (I think), but nothing seems to help.

I understand some security changes were included in this update. How do I reverse them, or even better downgrade, without losing all my windows, tabs etc (I run 3 windows and 100's a tabs 24/7, not keen to lose progress, or have to start using a new browser).

Thank you in advance.

How to get the plaintext of a Secret Key Entry in Mozilla NSSDB PKCS11?

I have a mozilla NSSDB PKCS11, it includes one of three things. Certificates, keys, and SecretKeyEntry. I would like to know the content of a SecretKeyEntry with the alias "StoreXKey". Firstly, is extracting the plaintext of a SecretKeyEntry possible? I seem to think so because of links: https://technosock.blogspot.com/2007/12/token-knowledge.html and https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry.html#getSecretKey

First link gives a way to do it ( which doesn't work for me ) the second link gives us a few methods, namely .getEncoded() which can supposedly be called on a SecretKeyEntry to get the byte array information.

Here is my code thus far, all results hit a null pointer exception when using the getEncoded message. I am sure the SecretKeyEntry exists in the NSSDB.

String configFile = "config.cfg"; Provider provider = Security.getProvider("SunPKCS11"); // I am confused on how to incorporate the config file as well. /* provider = provider.configure(configFile); // Does not work */ Security.addProvider(provider);

String defaultPIN = "--.--.--.--.----.-...-.--"; try{

  KeyStore ks = KeyStore.getInstance("PKCS11");
  ks.load(null, defaultPIN.toCharArray());
  KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry skEntry = (KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry) ks.getEntry("StoreXKey",null); // Do I need a password protector here?
  System.out.println(new String(skEntry.getSecretKey().getEncoded())); <-- Error is thrown here. 

}catch (Exception e){

  e.printStackTrace();

} Any help / advice or links are appreciated.

This may be an inexperienced "user error" but I believe that a recent update has removed "options" from the Tools menu thereby removing menu access to Password Manager.

I finally accessed the Password manager from Tools/preferences/privacy/passwords/saved passwords

While Thunderbird help continues to reference "Password Manager", I believe it was renamed "Saved Logins"
