comment Are clients blocking all incoming connections secure?
@RoryAlsop no, there's a difference between outgoing and incoming connections. I only disallow incoming connections. The firewall knows the difference from NEW / ESTABLISHED as explained here. So once a connection is established (i.e., to this very server serving this page) the firewall knows the incoming traffic is connected to my outgoing request. TCP is a connection-based protocol, as opposed to UDP.

answered Phones broadcast the SSIDs of all networks they have ever connected to. How can these be obtained by an attacker?

comment How to know if firmware is stealing my information?
I don't believe a router can easily steal your information if yon are connecting securely (for example, through https).

comment Hacking an aircraft
@MatthewPeters: Hacking, in the sense of non-authorized intrusion, and taking control of the aircraft, which was a Boeing or Airbus. Plus points for scarier when doing it from the ground (not as a passenger in the plane).

This is not a spammer, but a scammer.
