comment What is the best practice for placing DataBase servers in secure network topologies
putting a sensor on the segment will allow you to monitor it easily plus the log will be clearer. The syslog server could be on a different segment and valuable information could be associated with debugging.

how could you block a service accessing your service if that service is using a service to access your service? if so, you would ending blocking newer ip all the time and it could be long considering ipv6 math. just saying and as a matter of fact there is good open-source project that does just that.

comment How should I safely display my phone number on my Website?
If you feel you can't trust then purchase a sip configuration file and setup your own voip server using asterisk for example. You could then do a redirect with some voip antispam feature to avoid abuse. Sip configuration file cost about 50$ CAN and an asterisk server can run on a 20$ pentium 4 machine. If you wish to get a better encoding you can do so by purchasing a encoding licence to Digium. Those kind of config run smoothly even using 3g vpn as when setup properly the encoding can works great at as low as 100 kb/s. In other words, it could run over 3g in the back of your trunk lol

comment Is possible to know if increased marketshare means more viruses?
Backward compatibility also count. Microsoft Windows operating system vs Apple iOS is a good example. Offering compatibility increase security risk.
