comment Can anyone be hacked?
Wow...dude... you went off the deep end. :) Schroeder's response is obviously coming from a real world corporate background - at least that's what I'm seeing in his response.

comment Is there a good list of all the parts of the Security Chain?
SANS has good lists like this in the form of posters. Search for "SANS Securing Web Application Technologies" or "SANS Critical Security Controls".

comment Internal IP addresses allowed access to all DMZ hosts
Correct. In my opinion, the chance of a workstation being compromised by an outside attacker is exponentially higher than a server being compromised by an outside attacker. Workstations are operated by users who have a propensity to click things, have some form of direct internet access, and tend to use highly vulnerable programs like Flash or AdobePDFs. That attack surface of a workstation is greater than that of a server. This means the internal workstations cannot be assumed trusted from a DMZ point of view and should not have unrestricted / unfiltered access to DMZ assets.

comment Someone used my router to set up their own network
"The router only "broadcasts" a single network". That's not true. Many routers have a guest network, a 2.4ghz network, and a 5ghz network. All can have separate SSIDs.

comment SSL Certificate and IDS\IPS
A general diagram would be helpful. How is it that you don't have access to "an internal web server in our perimeter DMZ"? Why do you need to be routed to a third party to access a host already on your own network?

comment Does encrypting a setting in web.config actually provide security?
The last part Xander mentions in his reply is important. Not all exploits allow an attacker to take complete control of the system. Some exploits allow the attacker to download or access files that they shouldn't normally be able to access, like the web.config.

comment Pentesting an ATM OS upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7
Just an FYI, there is no upgrade path from WindowsXP to Windows7. Meaning, if they went from WindowsXP to Windows7 it's essentially a fresh installation of Windows7.
