comment Encrypt with private and decrypt with public
the second path seems more like signing in which the encryption / chipher does not create secrecy but make sure that the author is indeed the holder of the private key

comment Are there approaches/mechanism to detect hardware backdoors?
thank you! That holds true for certain types of attack scenarios (i.e. those where you seek to get data access). If the goal was simply (and bad enough) to brick the device upon reception of a series of data bytes not much output communication needs to take place. Also there are surely other attack types.

thanks for the pointing the finger to the more easily detectable hardware backdoors here. I did not expect this but surely a great hint.

comment Is “HTTPS” ~100% secure?
the compromised CA scenario might not be that unlikely after all considering the relatively high number of CAs out there. This scenario even causes some modern browsers to check if the certificate used is from the usual CA or is suddenly from a totally new CA.

comment Linux password changed. Is this an attack or a hardware glitch?
@skytreader thank you! Since you express some reluctance of being attacked, you might consider at least to keep your linux safe from win8 by using encryption. Also another layer of protection by using a linux securtity module to yet again sandbox the browser keeps the worried/paranoid among us happy ;)

also nice to know: in linux wayland or X11? given that X11 might allow a hacked browser to send shit to other X11 windows (i.e a sudo'ed terminal).

has there been some "separation" of the OSes? i.e encrypted partitions, or may we assume a root in your Linux means essentially all control over windows 8 too?

comment Crack Unknown Encryption
at that lenght, sure it's not an OTP? Does somehow encrypted mean that the principle is that there is a key, a message and a algorithm?

comment Can a guest virtual machine be compromised by a virus on the host machine?
Your worry mentioned above is in the case that you rent a vm and the host is not in your control, right?

comment Can a guest virtual machine be compromised by a virus on the host machine?
for curiousity's sake: did you have an idea or logic that would suggest otherwise, that means a concept/case in which a host is secured against its host?
