comment When to use SSL ? / When to send passwords via mail?
"If you are in a crochet forum, there will be millions of euros being spent to get your password, even if you are a 90 years old granny with no money." I don't need millions of euros to get at your password if you aren't using SSL. A simple tablet or laptop will do.

comment Security-themed Masters Thesis Topics
@Rook I agree with Mayank. Title definitely changes the question too much. The OP isn't asking about the impact of security on distributed systems... He didn't mention that the thesis has to revolve around distributed computing.. Opting to roll back.

comment SSL vs TLS, which is less vulnerable to DOS attacks?
I think you meant TLS instead of TSL. If you indeed meant TSL, which is an acronym I am unfamiliar with, please feel free to roll back my edit.

comment What are the statistics on how often client form submissions fail CAPTCHAs?
I don't have any statistics so I'm not gonna answer. "Is the likelihood of failure high enough to justify the effort of deploying the CAPTCHA?" This really is a moot point though imo. Most web application frameworks have libraries that make adding captchas as simple as a one or two lines of code. It really is a matter of usability when it comes to deploying captchas.

comment Should I put a potentially insecure program online?
Do you want to release your program as a download/source code for people to run or are you actually hosting your application somewhere for users upload code? If it's the former I'll go ahead and release it with a warning of potential security issues.

comment How can I determine the encryption used by knowing input and result?
I'm not sure what you want... Like the answers on that question you linked to suggest, there is no good way to do it...

comment What is the security purpose behind the “enable editing” of MS Word?
I wonder how many people actually evaluate the contents of the file before clicking enable. I know I certainly don't.

comment Is KeePass a good defense against keyloggers?
I can think of another strong defense against keyloggers. You know... don't get a keylogger in the first place! :)

comment How can I punish a hacker?
@hydroparadise If you live in the USA and a robber robs your house you report it to the local corps. What happens if you live in the USA, host your website using a server located in a datacenter in Japan, was attacked by a French hacker using a compromised machine in China? Who do you report it to? Which law enforcement agency is going to arrest the guy?

comment Why is WPA Enterprise more secure than WPA2?
@Unw0und No, EAP is an authentication protocol while TKIP and CCMP is an encryption protocol.
