lwfinger.com

Hi guys, can someone tell more about this site lwfinger.com.

I understand that the firmware is being downloaded from it to the BunsenLabs when i update the system (or also probably in Debian, i'm not sure).

Сan trust? https://www.hybrid-analysis.com/sample/ … mentId=100

Re: lwfinger.com

Where and when and how exactly are you seeing lwfinger.com in your BL system?
FWIW, I don't think BL has any business downloading anything from that domain.

Anyhow, it seems to have sth to do with realtek firmware.


BL quote proposals to this thread please.

Manually ran the script "bl-welcome".

And looked at the LXterminal during the system update.

Re: lwfinger.com

lwfinger.com is where Debian gets Broadcom (and maybe Realtek?) drivers from.

Re: lwfinger.com

yes, the Broadcom drivers are updating from there . . . something about the link having permanently changed. Went by too fast and at a glance.

Re: lwfinger.com

Just a reassurance - by default BL doesn't download anything from any origin except the BunsenLabs and Debian repositories.

The only exceptions are with user consent after an explanation, as with Dropbox or Flash.
