comment Why do some bank websites use passwords that are not case sensitive?
You're more likely to find that the hardware is new (e.g. IBM Power Systems kit), but the OS is a Unix-like distro such as AS/400 which is technically ancient, but still maintained.

Yup, my money is on it being a frontend for an AS/400 or similar.

comment Malicious Website URL
@CHANist You can, but it can't be blanket blocked for everyone easily if it's just an IP. With a domain it can be killed by the domain provider (e.g. 1and1, Nominet, etc.) based on an abuse report, which means nobody can reach it via that domain any more.

@Stephane Please don't use the close/downvote features for questions where you think the asker is confused or mislead about the situation, when the question itself is on-topic and relatively clear. It's much more constructive to ask for clarifications and provide advice which clears up the confusion than to just dismiss the question.
