comment Record IP pseudonymously?
In short, I'd drop the last 8 bits from an IPv4 address (IPv6 is different, I could elaborate in an answer). If under DoS attack, make a note of the exact IP address or addresses and block those.

comment Record IP pseudonymously?
"IP addresses aren't usually considered private information" YMMV. It depends on the country, person and even context. I personally do consider an IP relatively private information. To make them more anonymous, I see no reason why you can't drop the most identifying bits, depending on the context that may be the last 8 or 16 bits of an IPv4 address.

Didn't Bruce Schneier once say that it's mathematically solid, and that if there is a flaw in it then it's in the implementation? Or was that about otr, I don't remember...

comment Is nc -l unexploitable?
People who downvote, explain? Because I thought "wtf" when someone asked about cat, but there were really great answers and in short, yes, that was exploitable. Why downvote asking asking the same about netcat? It could totally be used as internet-facing application (I have). There are close votes for 'unclear' and 'too broad' right now. Especially for the former, you really should leave a comment. It even says in the comment placeholder "Use comments to ask for more information or suggest improvements." You could ask for clarification or try to narrow the scope.
