comment Use Nessus or focus on manual testing?
Nessus is not meant to be a comprehensive web application scanner, so I do not know why you are using it as a standard for vulnerabilities.

Spender posted a FAQ: grsecurity.net/rap_announce.php

I'm not sure this adds more than the other answer

comment how to create DMZ on xDSL router
If I understand the question correctly, this looks like a configuration question for the specific router you have and not a security question. Please contact your router vendor's support.

comment Avast attempts to connect to the Internet when I try to download email
@Tomas if that's your real question, then you need to contact Avast support for those technical details. We can' possibly know Avast's internal architecture.

It is my understanding that there are WP plugins that can limit access to wp-login to certain IPs

comment I almost searched my password, but didn't press enter. Is my password at risk, because of autocomplete or anything else?
@BenJunior you are missing the point of the problem with your answer. You state that "it can't be possible". Considering that the question is "has it been logged?" you are stating that the password has not been set to Google because the OP did not hit enter. I think we have shown that to be categorically false. You are now arguing, "it just doesn't matter if it's logged", which is a completely different answer. So, your answer, and arguments, are disconnected, and a little non-sensical.

so, you're saying that auto-suggest is done client-side?

How can the search bar return auto-suggestions without "sending" and "processing" on the server-side? Does it really matter what technologies are used?

comment I almost searched my password, but didn't press enter. Is my password at risk, because of autocomplete or anything else?
how then do you respond to all the answers saying that everything you type in the search bar is sent to Google (re: autocomplete, auto-suggestions)

comment Protect WordPress from brute force attacks?
Without your logs (or content of the alerts) we are really working in the dark here. Clef is just a 2FA app, if someone fails that, how does Wordfence respond? We need lots more data.

comment How to mitigate attacks on mobile phone via mobile network, i.e. imsi catchers and other methods to take into account
This is too broad to answer. You effectively ask: "how can attackers gain access to my device?" There are far too many ways to answer that.

comment Is there a list of currently active botnets?
@Iman that's the problem with this question. Any list we give you will soon be outdated.

Should it be protected? Yes. Are you really asking about https vs srtp/rstps?
