comment How could online encryption ever work?
@downrep_nation although you were only using SSL as an example, it is actually the best example of the answer to your question and how "online encryption" protects itself from eavesdropping.

comment Scanning private IPs from outside network
I thought your previous question about nmap addressed the issue of scanning only 512 IPs.

comment Company's right to insist on personal info
Name and address would be things that you would already have told the company in order to get service, so it is shared information. I'm not sure why you would have a problem with sharing that info with them. DOB is, potentially, another matter. But if you have already shared that with them in order to set up service, I'm not sure what the issue is with providing it over the phone.

comment Searching encrypted storage
This does not really answer the question. You mention some topic names that might answer the question, but you do not actually delve into those topics. Can you expand your answer?

comment Searching encrypted storage
Please take more care in writing your posts. Your spelling errors make your posts very difficult to read and they are only caused by carelessness in typing.

comment Why do some ATMs not require a PIN when depositing money?
This question has to do with banking processes, and security is only tangental. Getting money into your account needs to be easy (think "direct deposit"), just like getting out of a burning building needs to be easy. Security needs to protect risks. What risks are there in lowering the threshold to add money to your account?

comment Nmap doesn't scan the whole range of IPs
@aurelien75000 if your machine is only attached to 2 class C networks, then nmap might only see the 2 networks and limit the scan to those

comment How can CVE-2016-2324 and -2315 be mitigated on Mac OS X?
If that is your question, you need to edit your title. Secondly, at the time of this writing, there is no higher version than the one you have installed for Macs. The only options are the ones you outlined.

comment Can someone please explain to me how a rainbow table works?
So your question is focused on collisions? If so, can you edit your title? You might get better attention and higher quality answers.

@LucasKauffman no worries - just thought I'd give you a head's up

comment Can an attacker listen to a DSL signal by calling telephone?
Although you are concerned about security, what you are really asking is for technical details on how DSL frequency work, which is off topic here. I also think that you are making some logical leaps that are putting you astray in your thinking.

comment How would one recall a worm?
I don't think this satisfies "silently and inconspicuously recall", but I like the approach

comment Traffic capture on a public server
you are asking a few different questions all at once: 1) yes, it is possible to sniff web traffic at any point between you and your server to discover URLs, 2) if someone has access to the hosting environment, then they can see traffic, 3) there are lots of other ways someone might discover your web directory structure

comment Regarding Mobile Application Penetration Testing
then it looks like you answered your own question: you have "rooted" and "non-rooted" findings

comment Regarding Mobile Application Penetration Testing
it depends on the results you want to achieve - do you want to test the worst-case scenario or the common-case scenario?

comment Getting into pentesting with no experience
This is really something to ask a recruiter. Do some informational interviews to get their sense, and use their guidance.
