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.

comment Can we trust antivirus software?
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.

comment Are antiviruses still useful?
Google Mac OS X viruses and you will come across some. Some of them are pretty horrifying too.

Known sites have been known to spread viruses if they have something not properly sanitized. I think AV is a must.

comment Does cPanel store my login password as plaintext
@YordanPavlov It most likely sends it as plaintext. This is not a security issue as cPanel uses SSL (at least mine does). It also won't be stored on the server for more than an few seconds. Also as I understand it RAM is much harder to extract information from than something on the file system.

comment Has personal computing security gotten better or worse in recent years?
While it is true that the amount of courageous/unaware users is probably higher on Windows, I would take it with a grain of salt since Windows has a market share far greater than OSX or Linux currently at 75% for just XP and 7 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_operating_systems. I would argue that percentage wise they are probably around the same. I've seen some Mac users do some pretty dumb stuff and a lot of them that think "I can't get a virus I'm on a Mac" and take that as I'm safe to do anything. I would say the viruses exist mainly because of the market share 75% vs 6.73%.
