comment How to display friendly notification about no TLS 1.0 support in browser
It is dependant on your web server. Which one are you using?

comment Router forensics
This is a question for Asus support. This situation is typically why you need to ship your logs to a secure repo.

comment Iphone app not allowing proxy
Are you sure the app is using HTTPS? Maybe they are using another communication method? Inspect using Wireshark to make sure you are using the correct analysis tool for the protocol involved.

comment Limitations of botnets
Are you asking if it is possible for botnets to dynamically change per install? Yes, of course. But, are you asking about a particular variant of cryptolocker?

comment KakaoTalk message encryption
You give us a hashed string and expect us to figure out their scheme? Do you know what the plaintext is? Could it simply be a hashed UID?

comment What Man-made Physical Threat Could Pose Severe Danger to a Server Farm?
@LieRyan I agree, but given that it takes place in the future, it's the idea of acid that is my point.

Why not ask your IT folks? You're hiring them, they'll tell you what they log.

comment How to hide my ip and browsing history from others on my network?
Using someone else's network comes with some responsibilities. They are in charge of the network and its integrity, and therefore have some rights to monitor how it is being used.

comment Security measures and anti-virus on server to mitigate acting as a propagation vector
There is great debate on that fact, and the topic is more complex than you address, but that's besides the point. The OP is in a corporate environment. Users may not have control over which OS they run. Your line sticks out as an oddly unprofessional outlier to an otherwise wonderful answer.

Your Windows/Linux/Mac line needs to be removed. It takes away from the awesome points you make in the rest of your answer.

comment Is it some kind of bug, if same request is being used over and over again to perform a particular update?
This question is unanswerable as it stands. Can you edit it to add the relevant details you talk about in comments?

comment Possibility of Correlating Certain User Groups in low-latency Networks
How does the Adversary's tap and TLS work together? Can A see the unencrypted traffic or only the encrypted traffic?

In a fire, you evacuate. You don't start fiddling with backups.

comment Using my own encryption instead of https in app
Is the purchase of a cert your only concern? What about free certs? Or a self-cert?

comment How to create secure portable firefox?
"is this secure?" That question depends on what you are securing against. Is it simply that you want to prevent the theft of your personal certificate?

comment Fetching remote content in PDF files
I'm not sure how this is a security question. If you have a security angle here, can you edit your question to include that?

comment differences between various screen sharing/remote desktop access softwares
You want us to summarize ALL the screen sharing software that is available? This question is too broad. We can answer the differences between specific packages, but we aren't going to do all the research for you.

comment Do website owners know what keywords a visitor typed in google search to get to their site?
if you meant there to be a security/privacy question here, could you edit your question to include that?

comment Is there scan-me-for-vulnerabilities services?
Testing if your firewall is correctly configured requires custom tests that are designed in respect to your rules. As for services and vulnerability scans, then use metasploit? You are asking for services when you already know what you need to run. Search for vulnerability scanners, if you want other alternatives.

comment Securing Laptop's Wireless
Each device can do this differently. Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, Android, they all have ways of dealing with this. Are you asking about protecting a particular device?
