05:32 TimToady just a note: I'm not sure I trust the precompiled binaries from x3nU, since there's more than an even chance that this is the same person as the one logging in from ddosking.org; at least the come from the same server, and there seems a possible name match
05:32 sorear who is that person?
05:33 TimToady allahu aka jakk aka jakky
05:33 sorear do we know anything about them?
05:34 TimToady both coming in from leguin.freenode.net
05:34 TimToady x3nU has an address in .cc
05:34 TimToady name of Konojacki, which fits with jakky
05:36 sorear if you have reason to not trust the binaries, what can we do about it?
05:36 TimToady and jakk is following #python #ruby #lua #perl6 #fedora #debian ##c #bash #tcl #perl ##freebsd #centos #archlinux
05:36 TimToady dunno
05:36 TimToady check 'em to see if they match a real build of the same version, maybe
05:37 sorear is there a wider discussion of who jakk is?
05:37 sorear among those other channels
05:37 TimToady no, didn't want to alert on any of the channels he's following
05:38 TimToady oh, I don't know about the other channels
05:38 sorear anyone with tor handy who can dig?
05:38 TimToady tor?
05:39 sorear tor.eff.org, ip masking tool
05:39 sorear which I keep meaning to install
05:40 TimToady I suppose we could run strings on the compiled binary and see if anything obvious pops out
05:40 sorear what all is ey trying to ship binaries of?
05:40 TimToady http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2012-01-06#i_4940558
05:41 TimToady it just struck me as an odd coincidence that they're both coming from leguin
05:42 sorear *shrug* I don't think there's much information content in server connection
05:43 TimToady we should ask the eurofolk whether anyone knows Tomasz Konojacki personally, and whether they're sure it's him
05:43 sorear I mean, diakopter is on kornbluth (DE), I'm on pratchett (FR), and you're on niven (OR.US)
05:44 TimToady yeah, I know, but I'm naturally paranoid
05:44 sorear ...but we're all connecting from the same IP in VA.US
05:44 sorear hmm, geoip'd the address again to double check and it came up as D.C.
05:45 sorear I wonder if it's really there or if they just went "we're very geographically flexible, let's put in the capital"
05:49 * sorear wonders why it's .at and not .au or .or
05:49 sorear *blink* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_der_Berge,_Land_am_Strome#Use_in_popular_culture
06:36 TimToady for what it's worth, rereading x3nU's contributions over the months, I'm not worried :)
06:36 sorear (link is quite relevant to #perl6)
06:37 * sorear wonders if TimToady means "harmless/incompetent" or "harmless/friendly"
