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.

comment Is Adblock (Plus) a security risk?
"I've reviewed the source and I can safely say I haven't any idea at all what's going on. Source: I am a JavaScript and Chrome Extension developer." So you are a developer who cannot read code? Either that, or you only looked at the code for 40 seconds without reading it. Either way, good job of trying to scare users, you've successfully made it into the FUD ranks of GMX. Do you also happen to work in the advertisements industry?

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.
