@Celeritas How are you encrypting them locally?

comment Is it secure to have two password managers?
@Celeritas because you've put your passwords in the cloud, you must now trust that LastPass is taking appropriate steps to secure your passwords. IMO this more than doubles the potential attack vector on your information, as you must now trust the data was transmitted and stored securely. You must now also trust that LastPass has sufficient protocols in place to prevent SE attacks to try to steal your info. Last, and not least, if this info is in the States it then becomes subject to the Patriot Act.

comment Best secure way to update back-end servers?
What OS are you talking about? If you're using Windows you could deploy a WSUS server which will essentially act as a proxy to download the updates.

How am I missing any part of that quote? If older OpenSSL libraries are used which do not appear on the advisory, then what's the risk?

Neither the client nor server appear to be vulnerable. If certs were issued with OpenSSL do they need to be revoked and re-issued?

comment Is it illegal to publicly reveal security flaws in a service?
While IT Security and the Law frequently intersect each other, this website is not intended to provide legal counsel or advice for anyone. With that said, if you're really interested in the legality of this, I would hope you wouldn't put your faith in free advice obtained from the internet to keep you out of legal trouble.

comment How can I Bypass ip block mechanism?
@kinunt it's not uncommon to have an IPS blacklist an IP address after it's detected activity that deems to be potentially malicious (ie port scanning).

comment How to check the safety of a link?
Or even better, remove Java all together. I would say that 99% of web users don't need to use Java, and it's existence on their system just opens security holes.
