comment Is it true that breaking into the https padlock settings on a web page is easy to do?
In that link's case, nothing is cracked, you just don't have a TLS connection from end-to-end - you have a proxy. Your browser will tell you that the certificate that encrypts the channel doesn't match the destination. It's not possible to be a man-in-the-middle without this kind of alert.

I think we need more to go on. Can you show the message? Can you describe your environment?

comment Receiving random numbers in GET request query string. Exploit?
You are going to get a lot of seemingly random garbage being requested. Is there something specific that you are concerned about?

comment How to track who created a fake Gmail account using my name
What you are asking is to "prove a negative", which is impossible. You can show that your main Gmail account is another account, and therefore you would not have created a new one, with your name, just to send this unfortunate email.

comment Is a ZIP file password easy to break?
Good catch on the file size! Yeah - I call BS on the video. Nothing has been cracked. In fact, it might have nothing to do with the particular program he used to zip or to create the self-extractor.

Question is much better. I retracted my votes and Phillip has your answer.

I, too, would have liked to have seen the files actually accessible. The self-extractor may have simply build the directory structure and not decrypted the files.
