comment What should you do when you notice weird traffic?
"My personal server gets portscanned, dirbustered, etc., multiple times a day. I don't even blink at those reports, it's just noise at this point." +1 To this statement. This sort of thing happens on a continual basis. You will put yourself into an early grave if you try to proactively investigate and block every person who scans your network.

comment When is it appropriate to provide clickjacking protection one of my websites pages?
Just wanted to add that not all browsers support the X-Frame option. If you're concerned with protecting users with older browsers you need to include frame busting java script on the pages you want to protect.

You need to remember that while it may be "my personal phone" it is your COMPANY'S network. You are using their bandwidth.

I've always liked this explanation. Much easier to grasp than a bunch of math equations.

comment How can clicking a link in a Facebook users news feed compromise their account
Just know this; merely clicking the wrong link can cause you to get completely owned. The internet is a very dangerous place. Zero Day exploits can exist long before the public is aware. The worst of these allow your machine to be compromised simply by clicking a malicious link. Never take candy from a suspicious looking link. Never take a ride with a suspicious looking link. Does this sound familiar? It's the same thing our parents taught us as kids. Links are strangers. Strangers are dangerous. Beware the stranger danger!
