comment How secure is Windows Auto-Logon?
I find it disturbing because my password is being stored plain text. That means everything/one with read access to this registry location can use this info to log in remotely with these credentials. So a malicious piece of code that only yet has read access, can suddenly turn into a malicious p.o.c. that knows valid credentials for this machine.

@Ramhound - I found the bit about Windows XP storing the password plaintext in the registry especially disturbing. Do you happen to know whether this is different with Win7?

comment How to listen to all ports (UDP and TCP) or make them all appear open (linux)
@Iszi - I can't resist noting that not allowing "... connections to go outside when the port is different than TCP port 22, 80, 443, or UDP port 123" is hardly a security measure of any effect :-) Or is it?

comment How secure is NTFS encryption?
Robert - very long I understand (if it's got more than 14 chars there's guaranteed no LM hash, so brute forcing the pwd would be necessary). Very random - what do you mean by this? I obviously won't take any single word from a dictionary, but I wonder how much randomization is really necessary !Its my DOG SAM has 15 characters and I wonder how "insecure" it really is ...
