@astralbanana What makes you believe Truecrypt is better? The Linux kernel itself had backdooring potential with the RdRand code that Linus Torvalds included.

comment Why aren't application downloads routinely done over HTTPS?
@DamonGant Oh of course, ssl is broken when you don't either type https:// or verify that it's secure (padlock). Still, I think Twitter can be assumed to be a reasonably secure way of distributing checksums. And if you're smart enough to run checksums, you're probably also smart enough to make sure your connection to Twitter is secure.

@coderSam Ah okay, then I misunderstood! That sounds like it's at least on-topic here.

comment A DDOS attack by uploading a few hundred large files - whats stopping anybody?
I think the question if off-topic here. It's a very simple math formula how many clients can upload data to you at the same time, so the question is how to write code (or configure your servers) such that the system throttles clients when there is too much data. I think this question is more fit for StackOverflow (if you want to solve it with code) or Serverfault (if you want to solve it with configuration).

@DamonGant What do you mean "that includes twitter"? Manually going to twitter.com in a private navigation window (no cookies or other cache) automatically redirects me to https (which is TLS, as I guess you know). And the browser checks the certificate's signature. So I don't understand what you mean.

comment Ways to protect source code from theft
I find this question valid (it's being voted to be closed as "unclear what you're asking"), but it sounds very similar to this one: security.stackexchange.com/questions/17276/…. There it's about any data, but source code is also private data really.
