comment Can you say that since one time pad encryption is unbreakable, it is the best if used properly?
Oh, yes, there you go... that's what I was trying to get at. Not having perfect information security means that even the protection of perfect crypto won't perfectly protect your information, so even without breaking the crypto, some information can be gleaned. For some reason, I inferred an implication in your post that wasn't there about a properly implemented OTP equating to perfect information security.

@MSalters And there are already effective attacks (plural, two that I know of off the top of my head) against quantum entanglement (or at the very least, existing crypto systems using quantum entanglement). So that's not a solution either.

comment What makes it difficult to have a hardware antivirus?
The thing that makes computers so useful is that they are inherently instructable. We can program them to do a truly staggering number of things. Of course, the downside of that is that other people can program them to do things we don't want them to do too, and it's not like there's an easy way, or any universal way to decide which programs are bad, and which aren't. I mean, spyware's bad, right? Oh, except it's also used by employers to keep an eye on their employees, and parents to watch their kids online. Anything you do to make computers less programmable makes them less useful.

"The Effects of Different Bayesian oison Methods" Hmm... Bayesian oison. Sounds vaguely like some new kind of cuisine. Or particle physics.

revised Phones broadcast the SSIDs of all networks they have ever connected to. How can these be obtained by an attacker?
Fromatting and minor grammar.

Wow, your boss must love you. I, myself, find the urge to hire you almost overwhelming.
