@schroeder Why "can this bug be exploited" is not a security question?

comment What is the purpose of the “Password minimum age” setting?
This would only work if passwords are unsalted, or if salt is the same for an user. MS still uses fast unsalted hashes which are unsecure for decades

comment Is Django vulnerable to shellshock?
"The specific problem is in allowing attacker controlled environment variables." +1 for that. Any feature is a security threat in the same time. If it's not needed - it has to be turned off.

Python (among other high-level languages) handles problem you described very well: there is a strict distinguition between byte and a character.

comment Shellshock exploit on Linux Routers/Modems?
@Mark sort of maybe? It uses ash or other shell, so it would be vulnerable only if ash or this other shell would be vulnerable.

comment Shellshock exploit on Linux Routers/Modems?
"Most Linux-based routers are running an OpenWRT/DD-WRT derivative." - lolwut? And busybox is not a shell.

@sep332 your comment is worth converting to an answer or an answer to a separate question.

What CodesInChaos probably meant is that modexp with constant g and N can be fasten up, opposite to hash scrutinizing functions.

comment How common is Perfect Forward Secrecy in HTTPS clients?
@CodesInChaos at least client's parameters are transmitted unprotected. Can the mitmer tell the server the clent doesn't support DHE?
