comment Malicious tracking script being served from google server to circumvent block lists
Why shouldn't you inform Google? If it's as serious as you think it is, I'm pretty sure it'd be better for everyone to inform Google.

comment Can an ip be forced to connect? If so, how is it done, and how can I prevent it?
What do you mean when you say an IP is forced to connect to another IP? The question doesn't really make sense.

comment Can an open Wi-Fi hotspot be considered “secure” when using a VPN connection?
The article isn't saying a VPN is insecure over an open wifi hotspot. It's saying that before you've established a VPN connection, any non-secure connections will be out in the open. An outbound firewall configured to block all connections until a VPN tunnel is established could fix this hole.

comment Can a website identify me if I go in privacy mode with a different IP ? Or should I use a different computer?
Depending on who you're trying to defend against, have a look at the demo for HSTS super-cookies. It's a bit of a dilemma since fixing it involves a trade-off between security and privacy.

Don't forget the latest dilemma in browser security, HSTS tracking.

That won't protect you from something like the USB killer device.

comment Why not create your own encryption?
@user158421 just because you can't break it yourself doesn't mean someone else smarter than you can't either.

comment Is this code javascript vulnerable to DOM based XSS?
Without looking at the rest of the application, I wouldn't be so quick to say it's definitely vulnerable.

comment What kind of attacks do Javascript WebWorkers protect against?
I had a quick look at WebWorker and it doesn't look like a security feature? AFAIK, it's a way to implement background tasks. Possibly related: stackoverflow.com/questions/16600607/…
