comment Booting into Live USB Linux
@oshirowanen Your normal computer might have a virus to alter the USB stick's contents, that's why. Usually not the case I guess, but again, if you're talking about "usually" then much of the advice in my post can be disregarded.

comment Is Apache serving over HTTP vulnerable to Heartbleed?
@David Hmm, I'm not sure heartbleed+ssl/tls is better than no ssl/tls at all... I have first hand experience exploiting both and you're right that they're both awful, but the impact of http is usually much lower. Of course in different situations things might be different, but generally I think you're much better off disabling https altogether if the alternative is to leave it vulnerable.

comment API to change passwords?
@SteveS because then you rely on a central authority that is a single point of failure in availability and can also impersonate you. And as for multifactor: well you're down to one factor if your password leaks. Perhaps the second protects you for a while, but it was two factor for a reason.
