comment Hydra giving false negative passwords
I would say that the fact that this question is not salvageable for the following reasons. a) Not a question, but more of a statement b) Bears a striking resemblance to a question asked earlier today c) Ignores all laws of grammar and punctuation

comment Unable to connect to VPN, but can connect to the internet
@Bob make sure there is no egress filtering on the gateway appliance (firewall / router) in addition to his computer. If there was going to be outgoing filtering, unless it was a locked down laptop from a workplace, the firewall is likely your best place to look. This also assumes that your VPN server has the correct input rules to allow the connections from the IP, and that the client has all the necessary credentials (certificates, pre-shared keys, credentials, etc).

comment Is my ISP hacking me?
@obdaldh The "Class" system of IP addressing is largely considered defunct in favour of classless IP addresses. In addition, if it was a "Class A" address your subnet mask would be 255.0.0.0 (or /8) not 255.255.255.0

@ott-- Considering that the lions share of retailers do not take stock of the serial numbers on the bank notes as they arrive and depart, I imagine tying a serial # on bank note to an individual would be a monolithic task at best.

comment I've shared my WiFi with my neighbour. How can I ensure they're not downloading illegal content?
It should be noted, for what it's worth, all of the above measures are easily circumvented by someone who knows what they're doing. I would also note that these methods deal with blocking access to known trackers, but torrent downloads are facilitated by downloading pieces from different peers which is what makes it so difficult to block.

Admittedly, likely not much. Torrent traffic is notoriously difficult to block, even with enterprise firewalls because of the nature of how it operates. Monitoring or detecting it is typically done by monitoring the traffic and connections which, I would imagine, is beyond the capabilities of your router.

Your ability to block torrents will vary depending on your gateway device. See the following question for information on how to block torrent traffic : security.stackexchange.com/questions/42145/…

@Nick My rebuttal is not the same thing at all. I acknowledge that different geographical and networks will be higher risk that others, but anyone who is conscious about security should be prudent with operation security no matter where they reside, it should only be "high risk areas" that you describe. I would employ the same OpSec with my critical data and computers in Australia, Switzerland, Canada as I would in China, North Korea or Nigeria. My point is that you should always assume there is a risk and act accordingly.
