comment Does an exposed XMLRPC API in a web application pose a threat?
I'm thinking the API is there for the developer, as the application in the background already "knows" the protocol. By that reasoning I would think it should be safe to remove? Or have I totally misunderstood the concept?

There are always alternatives. Pentesting firms hire really good hackers, but not (usually at least) convicted criminal hackers.

comment Howto seed the PRNG in OpenSSL properly?
Thanks, this at least worked. If someone has anything to add regarding the strength/entropy of the bytes produced I would apreciate it, as it only seems to be (at least) 20 byte entropy to me (from your statement?)
