comment Using your full name as your work email address?
As others have said, what is the problem here? This is not a Security issue - company email addresses should not be seen as a part of security - most are a basic variant of real names, and those that aren't typically follow basic rules.

comment Avast attempts to connect to the Internet when I try to download email
It's not a tricky security issue, it's what you have agreed to by using Avast's services.

comment SQL injection using only Scala syntax?
SQLi requires no Java. It doesn't require any importing anything. I'm not sure what examples you mean - can you provide some links.

comment Why aren't ransomware deployers arrested?
Yuriko - Matthew's analogy is spot on. You don't need any identifying information to use ransomware.

comment The best way to prevent ransomware and virus?
Tyler - as an essential part of layered protection, AV blocks tens of thousands of malicious attacks weekly against most organisations. It isn't for zero day protection as other layers cover other gaps (well, AV with heuristics...) But without it your systems are screwed. That simple.

comment Hacked, is my IOS systems safe?Werid things?
Brent - this type of question is not answerable here. There are multiple, possibly unrelated questions, for a start, the post is rambling, with very little useful information. It doesn't matter if the core topic is within our site scope if the question is not, and without being able to conduct forensics, it is not possible to answer why an attacker does anything. (It's also not useful to guess)

comment How easy is it, really, to be hacked as an average user?
The Nessus and nmap READMEs are a good starting point, yes.

Option 7 is absolutely my first guess - distracting you in order to commit theft is simple and common.

Rapli - I'm going to migrate this over to webapps. They have a gmail tag there which may help you out as well.

comment With Ubuntu on Windows 10, could exploits and malware that work on Ubuntu (or related distros) work on Windows?
while it may be in insider builds, their NDA will disallow anything here until it becomes public, at which time this answer may be answeerable or possibly irrelevant (if enough info is provided with the release). Putting on hold.

comment Protecting cellphones from USB attacks (a.k.a. Juice Jacking)
Not for any of my threat scenarios, no. If an attacker has already compromised your phone and the machine you are connecting to, then this hack is irrelevant.
