Surveillance Detection Scout – Your Lookout on Tesla Autopilot

Surveillance Detection Scout is a hardware and software stack that makes use of your Tesla’s cameras to tell you if you’re being followed in real-time. The name, as you likely gathered, pays homage to the ever-effective “Surveillance Detection Route”. When parked, Scout makes an excellent static surveillance practitioner as well, allowing you to run queries and establish patterns-of-life on detected persons.

Scout currently supports Tesla Models S, 3 and X, running license plate recognition on 3 camera feeds to alert you in real time if you’re being followed. When you park, Scout remains vigilant, implementing familiar face detection as well. By combining timestamped vehicle location data & video, computer vision and an intuitive web interface, it becomes apparent that Scout has just as many offensive as defensive applications. Over time, SDS captures and reports on observed patterns of life, allowing you to quickly gain an overview of your surroundings (or your target) with minimal effort.

Setting up a Shared Mailbox from Office 365 on a mobile device (without using IMAP)

Getting a Shared Mailbox from Office 365 in the desktop Outlook App is quite easy. As long as the user has the right permissions to the mailbox, it will automatically appear to the left in their Outlook sidebar. Getting the Shared Mailbox to work on a mobile device on the other hand, is a whole other story. Especially if you do not want to use the more widely known method of using IMAP. Which makes you lose support for the Calendar and Contacts for instance. Also, it’s way more typing involved with technical server addresses and other non-user friendly settings.

How to turn off System Integrity Protection (SIP) in macOS

OS X El Capitan and later includes security technology that helps protect your Mac from malicious software.

System Integrity Protection is a security technology in OS X El Capitan and later that’s designed to help prevent potentially malicious software from modifying protected files and folders on your Mac. System Integrity Protection restricts the root user account and limits the actions that the root user can perform on protected parts of the Mac operating system.

Before System Integrity Protection, the root user had no permission restrictions, so it could access any system folder or app on your Mac. Software obtained root-level access when you entered your administrator name and password to install the software. That allowed the software to modify or overwrite any system file or app.
