    Private project, not really security related: Crawling robots.txts to gather some statistics on which bots people are most often excluding - weirdly I couldn’t find any recent/regularly updated stats on this.

        It started with a popular mastodon posts on how to block openai crawlers I think, and I’d like to know whether people are actually implementing it.

          That’s neat. I’m curious about this now. With “normal” search engines that have generally gone to shit, AI chat bots are on trend to give better results. If the robots.txt file is blocked from OpenAI, can I assume it hits other chatbots? And would that extend to Google/bing?

    Project Management crap. It’s the money season in the government, so I get to ask for lots of money to try to do cool things.

    New PSIRT drop from Fortinet last night. Making sure none of our customers are running patched versions of the ask.

    Not strictly teh ciberrz, but upgrading to OpenBSD 7.5. Might rebuild a mail server this weekend.
