comment Chaining VPNs to increase privacy?
I don't get #2, what do you mean a PC/IP combination that is linked to you? The point of the VPN is to hide the IP.

comment Theoretical VPN and Tor Encryption Chain
Your question sounds interesting but can you describe your thinking more? For example in both VPN->Tor and Tor->VPN you say it's more anonymous from hiding logs.

comment Can a rogue .wmv file “hijack” Windows Media Player?
@Compro01 as an interesting side note, a lot of the video streaming architectures are now researching transitioning from a pure client-server model to a hybrid P2P / client-server model

Windows Media Player DRM sounds like a good idea in theory with respect to anti piracy, any idea why it wasn't adopted more?

comment How safe are employee laptops in China against International corporate espionage?
I find this answer written in a very bizarre tone of voice, for example what value would the statement "That may not have helped you at all." ever have?

comment Why is it dangerous for a company to allow employees to connect their own devices to the internet?
I was given the example today that, at my school, students are allowed to connect to the university wi-fi through their own devices. They said this poses a security risk. Though we sign on to the wifi using the same credentials we use to logon to a computer on the the network, I don't believe we're getting any more access to the internal network beyond the internet connection. Is this still a vulnerability? Basically I'm asking "where is the distinction between using a networks internet connection and using the internal network beyond that?"
