comment Suggest a Security Certification
The 3 certs you list are very different from each other. Info Sec is a wide field, and the certifications cover a wide area as well. If you are a DBA, the certifications follow a very narrow track, and a question like this might make sense, but in Info Sec, you need to narrow your scope yourself.

This question is too broad for us to answer. You need tutorials.

comment Scrambling Data and Keywords sent over the internet
You're asking about "encryption". Look at HTTPS, VPN, SSH.

Why would anyone show the hash of the password to anyone?

comment Should I Use Base64 or Unicode for Storing Hashes & Salts?
Why would anyone be showing the users what the password was? The purpose of hashing the password is to convert it to an unreadable state so no one knows what the plaintext version was.

This is the superior answer to mine if confidentiality is not meant to be preserved.

Is this a homework question? What is the context for this question?

comment scanf of backspace (0x08) and EOT(0x04)
Because this is such a detailed request about a very particular language, you will have a better time asking on stackoverflow.com

comment What’s the purpose of this stock trading spam?
You might not have. It's ok to ask and have a question put on hold. It isn't a reflection on you. The fact is that this email simply doesn't have security implications.

comment Can the Windows Schannel vulnerability be exploited by visiting a website?
Yep - you're right, but then you need to highlight that like you did in your final edit.

comment Can the Windows Schannel vulnerability be exploited by visiting a website?
Readers have to do a lot of inferring to understand what you are trying to say. Lay it out for them like you did in the comments. That said, it still doesn't answer the question. The OP isn't looking for defense, but for a direction on how to exploit.

comment Real time application of AES and DES
You're not asking about encryption, but about power consumption. That's not something we will typically have knowledge of. You'd need to ask hardware folks about this sort of thing. "Power consumption" is a function of CPU and memory load. That's where you'll want to look.

comment Can the Windows Schannel vulnerability be exploited by visiting a website?
ok but, how have you demonstrated that with your answer? All I see is steps you've taken and the effect on normal browsing.

comment What’s the purpose of this stock trading spam?
Bayesian training is relevant to the understanding of tuning spam filters, which is Info Sec. This is just an attempt to get people to buy stock. There is no security implication.

Even the article says that you don't have to go to those extremes.

comment Old e-mail text types itself back into PC later by itself?
MS Security Essentials is not a reliable AV solution. Even Microsoft advises to add another AV on top of Essentials. You can get free AV scanners and Live CD's.
