WordPress 在 Internet 上的情況

WordPress 在 Internet 有很大的佔有率,在「Usage statistics and market share of WordPress for websites」這邊有一直更新的資料,現在是:

WordPress is used by 59.9% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 29.1% of all websites.

這數字可以參考看看。而在「State of the WordPress ecosystem」這邊就看到有人在分析 WordPress 在整個 Internet 上的情況。可以看到裡面有蠻多都是透過 BigQuery 分析出來的...

在分析整個頁面的平均下載量時,可以看到 WordPress 的頁面比較肥:

We get 1590 KB for wordpress=false and 1897 KB for wordpress=true.

但是在 WordPress 上未最佳化的圖片比較少,原文裡猜測是歸功於 plugin 的關係:

@amedina I wonder if this has to do with the availability of tools/plugins in the WordPress ecosystem that optimize images effortlessly, as opposed to other web development pipelines that require manual image optimization or installation of specialized tools.

所以就跑去分析了 WordPress 上使用了哪些 plugin,不過這是看 web request 以及 path 得到的,如果 plugin 是純粹在內部執行的話就看不到了:


新的 DNS Resolver:

看到新的 DNS Resolver 服務,也拿到了還不錯的 IP address,「New “Quad9” DNS service blocks malicious domains for everyone」,服務網站是「Quad 9 | Internet Security and Privacy in a Few Easy Steps」,主打宣稱過濾已知的危險站台...

由政府單位、IBM 以及 Packet Clearing House 成立的:

The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA)—an organization founded by law enforcement and research organizations to help reduce cyber-crime—has partnered with IBM and Packet Clearing House to launch a free public Domain Name Service system.

也就是說,後面三家都不是專門做網路服務的廠商... 於是就會發現連 Client Subnet in DNS Queries (RFC 7871) 都沒提供,於是查出來的地區都不對,這對使用 DNS resolver 位置分配 CDN 節點的服務很傷啊... (或是其他類似服務)

這是 GooglePublic DNS ( 查出來的:

這是 Quad9 ( 查出來的:

再來一點是,在科技領域相信政府單位通常都是一件錯誤的事情,我 pass... XD

IE 與 Edge 推出更新,阻擋 SHA-1 憑證

微軟這幾天推出更新,IEEdge 將不會接受 SHA-1 憑證:「Microsoft Makes it Official, Cuts off SHA-1 Support in IE, Edge」。微軟的公告則是在「Deprecation of SHA-1 for SSL/TLS Certificates in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11」這邊。

根憑證不受影響 (所以企業自己產生的 Root CA 也不受影響):

Beginning May 9, 2017, Microsoft released updates to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 to block sites that are protected with a SHA-1 certificate from loading and to display an invalid certificate warning. This change will only impact SHA-1 certificates that chain to a root in the Microsoft Trusted Root Program where the end-entity certificate or the issuing intermediate uses SHA-1. Enterprise or self-signed SHA-1 certificates will not be impacted, although we recommend that all customers quickly migrate to SHA-2 based certificates.

Internet Archive 收錄早期的 Macintosh 程式

Internet Archive 收錄了早期的 Macintosh 程式:「Early Macintosh Emulation Comes to the Archive」,從 1984 到 1989 的版本:

The first set of emulated Macintosh software is located in this collection. This is a curated presentation of applications, games, and operating systems from 1984-1989.

以現在來看好小 XDDD

While it is a (warning) 40 megabyte download, this compilation of System 7.0.1 includes a large variety of software programs and a rather rich recreation of the MacOS experience of 1991.

伊朗透過 BGP 管制網路的手段影響其他國家網路...

Dyn (之前被 DDoS 打爆,過一陣子被 Oracle 買去的那個 Dyn) 的這篇「Iran Leaks Censorship via BGP Hijacks」講到他們偵測到伊朗透過 BGP hijack 管制網站的問題。

前陣子伊朗透過 private ASN 放了 出來,影響到其他國家:

Last week, Iranian state telecom announced a BGP hijack of address space ( hosting numerous pornographic websites.

由於這段 IP address 在 internet 上是以 在放,就因為 /24 優先權比較高而被蓋過去影響到全世界...

然後過了幾天,開始攻擊蘋果的 iTunes 服務,不過這次是以 /32 放出來。由於大多數收的最小單位是 /24,這次的影響沒有上次大:

In addition, TIC announced BGP hijacks for 20 individual IPs associated with Apple’s iTunes service. These too were carried by Omantel to the outside world, albeit with a smaller footprint due to the fact that BGP routes for /32’s typically don’t propagate very far.

這看得出來 routing 在 internet 上還是非常脆弱...

微軟預定在 2017 年的西洋情人節淘汰 SHA-1 certificate

經過多次改動後,微軟這次宣佈 SHA-1 certificate 將在明年淘汰:「SHA-1 deprecation countdown」。

影響的範圍包括 Internet Explorer 11Microsoft Edge,在 2017 年 2 月 14 日之後不信任 SHA-1 certificate:

Starting on February 14th, 2017, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 will prevent sites that are protected with a SHA-1 certificate from loading and will display an invalid certificate warning.

與其他家類似,還是提供了管道讓企業內部建立的 SHA-1 certificate 可以用:

This will only impact SHA-1 certificates that chain to a Microsoft Trusted Root CA. Manually-installed enterprise or self-signed SHA-1 certificates will not be impacted, although we recommend for all customers to quickly migrate to SHA-256.

電信商對 Zero Rating 與網路中立性的問題

在「AT&T users will be able to stream DirecTV Now without using their data」這邊才看到 FCC 在這個月月初針對電信商對特定服務的 zero rating 發出警告:「The FCC tells AT&T it may be violating net neutrality with its DirecTV plans」:

AT&T is far from the only US carrier to zero rate data. T-Mobile has been ostentatiously offering free data for music and movies for a year now, and Verizon also zero rates video from its Go90 app. But in zero rating DirecTV, the FCC thinks AT&T may have gone too far.

AT&T 說任何人只要付錢都可以參加這個 plan:

AT&T’s argument is that any company that participates in its Sponsored Data program has to pay AT&T for it, and that includes DirecTV.

但問題還是在 AT&T 擁有 DirecTV,所以是左手付到右手:

Except, again, AT&T owns DirecTV, so even if one division is paying another, the overall company still ends up not paying any money.


The situation for other companies is very different — and the FCC believes that the price they’d have to pay is “significant[.]”


英國通過法案要求 ISP 記錄使用者觀看過的網站

英國前幾天通過了最激烈的隱私侵犯法案,要求 ISP 必須記錄使用者觀看過的網站:「Britain has passed the 'most extreme surveillance law ever passed in a democracy'」:

The law forces UK internet providers to store browsing histories -- including domains visited -- for one year, in case of police investigations.

不愧是 George Orwell 生前的國家,居然先實現了他的理想國... 接下來 Let's EncryptTor 的重要性就更高了。
