comment What happens if an attacker steals my phone's IMEI number?
I think you need to do some reading into how WhatsApp uses the IMEI number for accounts. A quick Google search produces rich results on this topic: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4480695

you should always qualify the word "safe" - you cannot declare "safety" with any certainty, regardless of your math

comment JDK and security for a Windows machine
I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking if the JDK is secure? If the combo of the JDK and Windows 8 is secure? Then the question is, "secure for what?" Are you assuming that the JDK includes malware? Please flesh out your question.

comment How to make sense of, and act on, Snort Rules?
This is where "suppress every alert that you don't understand" comes in to play. Snort feels the responsibility to detect the traffic signature so that admins have the option to deal with it or not, they do not feel the responsibility to determine how to fix it. It is a packet analysis and alert tool, not a diagnostic tool.
