comment One liner to create passwords in linux?
Base64 has 64 possible characters while there are in fact 95 printable characters. Would not recommend.

comment One liner to create passwords in linux?
I would not use this answer because any hash-sum (md5sum, sha256sum, ...) outputs hexadecimals. They contain only 4 bits of randomness per byte while being just as hard to remember as any same-cased alphanumeric string. There are lots of packages and other ways to do this properly, even if you only use tools that are available on almost every Unix-like OS.

comment is there a risk in increasing esmtp header line length against rfc5822 - asa/pix question
Well, if I was sure about an answer I would post it :). But if you test with longer headers to make sure it doesn't crash anything, it is probably okay, at least until you find out more.

How about increasing the limit instead of removing it? I could imagine that a multi-gigabyte header might crash things, so setting a reasonable limit (at least for the moment) might be a good idea.

comment Password recovery flow - Send Password recovery to any email?
So entering a non-registered email address would create an account for them automatically? It's sort of odd and you may want to consider whether users understand what is going on. Also, I could send lots of emails with useless links to people that never signed up for your website. Then again, you can do that with most register forms, but it's something to think about.

comment How does SSL/TLS work?
@MuhammadUmer Wish we'd get something interesting like this at school. We got one lecture with some encryption basics and even there I had to correct the teacher a few times... so that was useless... Keep on googling and never let school interfere with your education :) (Quote from Mark Twain.)
