comment Effectiveness of Belarc Advisor
I only know Belarc for one thing, indirectly giving free licence keys to everyone, try it yourself in Google: intitle:"Belarc Advisor Current Profile" "Windows XP Professional" key I know those people uploaded the files themselves but I find it very dangerous for them to have included licence keys in their reports.

comment Is ProxyPass more secure than directly hosting PHP site?
Did you really tried to compare vulnerabilities between Apache (2.2.x to be fair, even gentle) with Nginx ? Have a look at this page and compare the number of CVE per year. Apache has such a codebase that it's normal it has more vulnerabilites, Nginx have the advantage of being way much lighter.

comment Is TrueCrypt safe enough to store clear-text-passwords?
Remember you will be using Truecrypt on "any machine" so your password won't be secure at all the first time you decrypt them. Please only use trusted computers with your secret data!

comment Does anti-virus/security software protect against NTFS ADS?
I would hope MS (and Apple) embrace the unix way "Everything is a file", we would gain in compatibility.

comment Knowing Hash Algorithm from Hashed String
Just tried it on OP's hash and I got "Not Found", I tried upper and lowercases to be sure. The list known/recognizable of hashes is here: code.google.com/p/hash-identifier/source/browse/trunk/…

Just a quick note, your reference to facebook is not accurate, what facebook does (github.com/facebook/hiphop-php/wiki) is translating PHP into C++ and then compiling it, thus executing a PHP app as a binary.
