I don't understand what this means. You have disabled some events from
the event configuration window and this is not working?

I mean just that. If I go into the event system and turn off IM notifications. If I close the client and relaunch again IM notifications are turned back on. Mean it is not holding the settings that I do not want to recieve a pop-ups when receiving IM's. This happens on both Mac and Windows.

What events are those?

I am not sure what this means either. If you have multiple monitors,
just put Jitsi on the one where you want it. What's the issue here?

How exactly do you do that when you have no ability to select which monitor to put it on? I don't think that starting and stopping a stream hoping it pops up on the monitor is a desired out of the product. Your Mac client does not offer a screen selection options. This is on the Latest nightly build which has not been updated Since Jan.

However I have noticed that the attack piggy backs onto a Jitsi audio / video stream. I have noticed that if I pause the stream the attack no longer is heard. It's been bleeding into the screen sharing feature of Jitsi. I have been looking for a decent pocket sniffer that works with Yosemite so I can submit detailed logs.

I am awfully sorry, but this one also leaves me baffled. Are you saying
that you are worried your computer sends packets as part of a DDoS
attack and those packets are leaving out of the same source ports as the
Jitsi media but are going to a different destination?

No, what I am telling you is that the same folks who are hacking twitch and also hack your streams. I am informing you that streams have been compromised by whomever is hacking Twitch. I'm sure you user community at some point will get hit with this.

I came to this conclusion because I was getting twitch broad casts while screen sharing. If I put a pause on the stream the issue would stop. If I resumed the stream the hacked twitch stream would be injected into my screen sharing stream. This is easily repeatable.

Could you please let us know how you reached this conclusion?

As for the packet sniffer: isn't Wireshark working on Yosemite?

Wireshark has not worked on Mac in ages without a whole to toying around with a bunch of 3rd party libraries.

Please see my question in my previous mail:

monitor to put it on? I don't think that starting and stopping a stream

You can normally just drag it to the desktop you want. Indeed this doesn't seem to work (at least for me) when multiple screens are attached, in which case you can just grab the window with the mouse, then use your keyboard to go to the desktop you want. For me these are Alt+1, Alt+2, etc.

Your
Mac client does not offer a screen selection options.

Indeed, we consider this to be the responsibility of the OS.

This is on the
Latest nightly build which has not been updated Since Jan.

Are you sure you are looking at the nightly builds?

Our latest one is from last Thursday:

If I resumed the stream the hacked twitch stream would be injected into
my screen sharing stream. This is easily repeatable.

It is also extremely perplexing because I have absolutely no idea what you mean technically. What do you mean by a "hacked Twitch stream"? Is that a separate window? A web page? Something that appears within your Jitsi video window? A second video stream in Jitsi that makes your call appear as a conference?

Other than the fact that the two events seem to have occurred simultaneously at certain points, have you any data that links them?

Could you please let us know how you reached this conclusion?

Wireshark has not worked on Mac in ages without a whole to toying around
with a bunch of 3rd party libraries.

Wireshark is the tool we use for all our network debugging and pretty much all of us have (also) been doing it on OS X. The only dependency that I am aware of is a working X server.

I am not aware of any other tools that even remotely compare to Wireshark's abilities on OS X or any other OS for that matter.
