comment Siri DDoS over FM Radio
Welcome! +1 for an interesting question. Still, if you want more upvotes, please edit your question to have a longer and better title. Try to choose a title which itself forms a valid question in the English language; if you do so, end it with a question mark.

comment Does rooting an Android Phone make it Vulnerable?
Indeed. My Android device runs a version of Android less than 5.1, so the GraphicBuffer::unflatten() vulnerability affects it. (CVE-2015-1474; CVSS 10.0). As I wrote in a post elsewhere: I theoretically could root it and replace the insecure binaries; though, in practice, probably either I would do nothing or I would replace the entire "ROM" with something newer.

comment I'm an IT consultant. Should I discourage a client from telling me his password?
@TildalWave: I like billing by the minute. If I get distracted by some interesting webpage, I can stop billing, enjoy the webpage, then resume billing. Billing by the second would be too complicated.

comment I'm an IT consultant. Should I discourage a client from telling me his password?
@TildalWave: As for your first point: Since you misunderstood "IT consultant", you are free to edit your answer if you like. Of course, it's not required. As for your question: If plan B or plan C were clearly unnecessary, then it would be clearly unethical to charge money for the extra minutes required. They aren't clearly unnecessary, but if I ever do them, I think I will still warn my client in advance that they will have to pay for the extra minutes required.

You are both correct. I have downvoted the answer. Dear TildalWave, if you fix your answer, please request me to change my vote.

-1. What does "randomize computer" mean? What does "the browser in a password that is more important" mean? Please edit your answer and make it clearer. Also, if you used Google Translate to translate your answer into English: Please do not use Google Translate.

comment Is it OK to tell your password to your company's sysadmin?
-1. AviD has pointed out that if the sysadmin resets your password, it creates an audit trail, whereas if you change it for the sysadmin, there's no audit trail. Don't share your password: instead, ask your sysadmin to reset it then to diagnose the problem.
