comment How did my network admin identify my iPhone and how can I hide my ID?
Look in the general settings

comment Block a certain services in Windows 7
Block it from what? You want to prevent it from running? Prevent it from accessing the network?

comment Is full disk encryption on a server in a secure data center pointless?
Defence in Depth is a basic security concept. In what way did you use it? In what way do you think it could help the OP?

comment Is TLS v1 really secure for VOIP and video calling?
Which version are you concerned about? Version 1.0? 1.1? 1.2?

comment What items should be on a malware remediation checklist?
Your list is pure forensics, btw. In addition, malware can change accounts, and monitoring network activity can provide insights into things your initial analysis might have missed. If you want to limit your scope simple to OS changes, that's fine, but you might want to specific that limitation to the scope.

comment Anonymous web purchases
@MurphyDanger I think you need to define your scope a little bit. Purchasing physical items will require a shipping address, but a mail drop location could handle that. Pre-paid credit cards or bitcoin can anonymize the money. Tor can hide the location you browse from. Do these things satisfy your requirements? If you redefine your question, it might be reopened.

You might also want to include in the list other forensic analysis outside of the machine (e.g. network activity) and account compromise forensics.

comment What items should be on a malware remediation checklist?
This question might be a little broad, and would require multiple people submitting their contributions to a master list. This forum is not a good fit for that form of question. Also, do you intend to limit the list to just Windows machines?

comment Host Protected Area forensics
@paj28 sure - though the BIOS - but even so, the question is still broad and nebulous to answer

If the question was how to extract, then there might be a security question.

comment Host Protected Area forensics
The problem is that there isn't a security question. The answer is: whatever the bios might put in there. Every bios is different and some might not use it. I don't see this as a forensics question but a bios question.

comment I have iPhone 6 plus - can my boyfriend hack into my accounts?
I'm sorry but there is not much we can do for you. Anything is possible, and it is possible that you kept yourself logged into your email account and that person simply changed your password or other settings.

Hack into your server? Do you mean your phone? Or your iCloud account?

comment What does this snippet of code do exactly? found it inside a number of files on my webserver
There's a lot more to it than that: it has turned the server in to a command and control center for (likely) a botnet. Bots connect and retrieve commands.

Please calm down. First, you assume that I downvoted you, and I did not. Second, I have explained the alternate sites where you could get help and explained the reasons for why this is not the best fit here. It IS a valid question and worthy of an answer. It's just not the best fit here. That's all.

And we started to get a flood of these types, and the community decided to direct folks over to codereview or stackoverflow (meta.security.stackexchange.com/questions/1767/…)

But this is code review. stackoverflow.SE, and even codereview.SE might be a better fit.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because PHP code de-obfuscation is off-topic.

Although de-obfuscating these nuggets are fun, they are unfortunately off-topic here. We could be doing code reviews all day :)
