comment Do any security experts recommend bcrypt for password storage?
As a quick note, I personally take either bcrypt or pbkdf2 (depending on the platform) and benchmark different settings. Depending on what I'm using it for I use settings that cause it to take a given time. Like for a desktop application I'd aim around 80ms (I have a relatively fast laptop), or for a server I'd benchmark on the server and aim depending on what traffic I'm expecting.

comment Is Adblock (Plus) a security risk?
Oh sorry, my mistake. I assumed so since your post is more towards the bottom than the one that originally mentioned it (oftentimes posts are very roughly in chronological order), but of course I should have checked. I stand corrected :)

comment Is Adblock (Plus) a security risk?
"Something no-one has mentioned here is that Adblock plus along almost all other browsers and extensions can be updated remotely." Read again; this has been mentioned.
