comment Force a specific SSL cipher
I just used the method in the answer and it worked great. Often times the ciphers reported by the scanning tool don't align with the cipher name that must be specified in OpenSSL. There is a handy list located at: openssl.org/docs/apps/ciphers.html

comment Is it possible to exploit an image field in which I can upload any file?
You might give this a watch: youtube.com/watch?v=NPqVVhxhqmY "The Little JPEG That Could (Hack Your Organization)" Even it's not susceptible you'll learn something really cool. :)

Heads up, if this is going to be used on an internal server - the use of IP's is going to be deprecated. symantec.com/connect/blogs/transition-non-fqdn-server-names

comment Fiddler show external requests but not initiated by any legitimate process
For the time being, you could add an entry in your hosts file to route www.google.pl to 0.0.0.0 until you can track this thing down.

comment Is there a way my organization can collect clients' sensitive documents without being liable for them?
You're already liable to be GLBA compliant for handling sensitive customer/financial data. (if you're in the US or doing business with a US company) Please review: ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/privacy-and-security/…

comment Penetration testing approach - Is there a better method?
@Atsby It depends on the scope. I've see some network pentesting companies who ran the equivalent of an nmap scan against our external network and collected a fat check. However, I've seen web application pen testing companies that were worth their fee and then some. These tests involved highly skilled and specialized pen testers utilizing human logic and intuition in combination with tools and were highly effective. I actually look forward to reading those reports because the things these people find are amazing. Long story short, you have to shop around till you find the right fit.

comment Are there any two way + two factor authentication systems in use?
@RoryAlsop I modified my out of band statement to be more accurate. However, if the premise is that it's not out of band because it can be compromised, then nothing can be truly out of band.

comment What is risk of having memcache in public interface?
The documentation I've read seems to indicate the application is susceptible to stored cross site scripting versus reflected - in which case social engineering isn't required. Also, please read the article over data ex-filtration. The person was able to extract cached data from mem cache. If any sensitive data was cached (userID's, passwords, connection strings, etc) it could have been compromised.

comment What can I do as a user to minimize the risk of online banking?
To further Andre's (sorry, don't know how to make the special e) point on the first bullet, technology has emerged that allows infosec personal to either A.) Block Tor users from accessing their websites or B.) Limit the functionality of a Tor user while they are logged into a website. The reasoning is that a typical user does not use Tor, however, nefarious types who want to remain anonymous are more likely to use Tor.

comment Monitoring Active Directory Domain Administrator Activities
There are companies that offer Advanced Threat Analytics (hint, hint) solutions that may fit your needs. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a specific vendor.

comment Security benefits to have IP-filter in HttpModule instead of Page-Load in asp.net pipeline?
FWIW, IP address restrictions can be placed on one page specifically.

comment Safety of exposing an internal web application to the internet using a reverse proxy in the DMZ
So would it be out of the question to have this site behind a VPN portal, or restrict access to allowed network segments?

+1 for the Skeletor avatar. Will the users of this system be predefined? In other words, will this application be used by random internet clients, or will it primarily be used by other businesses?
