comment Can spammers enter my website without paying the membership fee?
This largely depends on the programming of the site. It appears your site is vulnerable in at least one way based on your writing.

comment How to disable a trail camera with a laser
I know you don't want to get into a legal argument, but other actions may land you in legal trouble. If the authorities don't care consider talking to an attorney in the US you can probably get a cease and desist, not sure about other countries.

It appears they are still there. I am not sure why they don't resolve for you.

comment Is blacklisting IP addresses a waste of time?
One problem with blacklisting is often IP addresses change. Companies like Comcast will often rotate their customer's IP address. Therefore, if you have a static IP and always use that IP, it would be much more effective to whitelist.

comment What prevents web shop owners from misusing credit card data?
@sweethome That is a good point if they choose that particular compliance level. I'm not familiar with all PCI standards, but I would venture to guess there is something in there for storing cc data on the server. This is just a guess from stores, like Target, being fined after credit card information was stolen.

comment PCI compliance if not storing or transmitting credit card data
You may find the PCI Quick Guide useful. From what I read sounds like you are in the clear and it's the customer's responsibility to firewall their network, but I am not certain.

comment Free second-level domain SSL certificate
As mentioned by the asker. StartSSL does not provide SSLs for subdomains (I've tried). He wants a free one for a subdomain.

comment Can we trust antivirus software?
@user2867314 While you do make a good point I don't see it as something Comodo intended to do (unlike a backdoor) rather neglected to secure. Also note, other articles sate it appears to be an Iranian government attack. I don't use Comodo AV either and stay away from it but have heard tests say it is good at preventing the installation of malware but is horrible at removing it if it is already installed or manages to install itself.

I would point out many of these companies sell other products and therefore have a name to protect. Avast has commercial versions. Comodo states that their best interest is people feeling secure on the web (they make money off companies). My point is if they damage their reputation on the free products it may hurt their bottom line with their paid products.

Google Mac OS X viruses and you will come across some. Some of them are pretty horrifying too.

comment Are antiviruses still useful?
Known sites have been known to spread viruses if they have something not properly sanitized. I think AV is a must.
