comment Can Polygraphs be effectively 'beaten'?
I grant that we often allow non-IT related questions, I've even asked a few myself. But this is not an Info Security question, IT or not.

comment Gmail spam from contacts. How does it work?
@Joe I am now completely confused about what you are looking for. You asked for the steps concerning how this can occur, I provide steps that I have personally seen, and you then ask for the prevalence rate of the particular strain I saw? Why do so many people have these problems? Because many people are uncareful enough to click on things that are infected.

comment Have multiple email addresses on multiple domains
Why do you think it would be more secure? More secure in what way? What threat do you hope to defend against?

Joe, you are quick to discount KnightOfNi's suggestions, but they are along the same lines of my own suggestions and I do know what I'm talking about.

comment Plausible deniability regarding KeepassX files
So, this boils down to a question of how to pass off a 2nd file as the original and how to maintain the 2nd file as the original changes?

comment Is it a bad idea for an information holder to e-mail a user their password?
If a user has 'forgotten' about the site, then offer a password reset option. Doing so means that you do not have to store the user's password in a way that breaks standard password protocols.

It is an answer, and a viable one, it is just very, very short.

comment BYOD - Confirming that Devices are Approved
Why do you want to approve the device along with the user? What problem does that control address? If the user can walk out with the device, (because BYOD), then what is mitigated by limiting what is used?

comment BYOD - Confirming that Devices are Approved
You would seem to require an agent-based solution. You install the agent on the approved devices and only those can connect.

comment Can we trust antivirus software?
Any software could be considered to be a backdoor if they contain certain vulnerabilities. You need to consider the reputation of the vendor and the attack surface of your assets.

comment How to convert http site to full https?
@drjimbob I completely agree with your argument, but this question is far too server/protocol basic. We also don't have enough information to provide the details that would be helpful. If this question could be re-written, then I would vote to re-open.
