comment Is an 80 bit password good enough for all practical purposes?
@Lighty That's about passphrases vs. passwords and whether XKCD got it right. This question is about the practical strength of an 80-bit password.

comment How to tell if someone else's site is vulnerable to Shellshock without hacking them?
I suspect the downvote is because, though that site may stink of security vulns, this question (title at least) stinks of black hat ;). Reading the question more thoroughly it's probably not the case, but you might want to try to formulate it a bit less like "I see this really old website and want to exploit it" and more like "Someone claims their site to be certified secure, can I prove that it's not (e.g. shellshock?) without really hacking them?"
