comment How Point-to-Point encryption eliminates PAN storing?
@max make sure you use the correct acronyms and make sure you understand the tags you use. That way, you can avoid confusion.

comment SQL injection using only Scala syntax?
SQL injection requires injecting SQL, not Scala. I'm not sure how one would use Scala (or Java) syntax in this case, unless you mean something different then what you asked. They way you have asked it currently, it's like asking, "How do I speak French when I'm speaking German?" The answer is: you speak French.

@SilverlightFox it looks like a mutual authentication question

comment Could keystroke timing improve security on a password?
@Samthere I named the field and provided how it could be used to increase the security of the password, which is what was asked. 98 people thought my answer was fine, including Moo-Juice. Everyone has an opinion, though.

@Micheal I don't think that's the question

comment How to check out downloaded scripts on backdoor?
Can you rephrase your question? I am not sure what you are asking.

comment Does multiple numbers per button have an effect on security?
@Iszi and I totally get that. BUT, there is a chance that by having universal smudging, that patterns would be harder to discern. Look, I know I'm reaching for a benefit to the scheme, but it is something to comes to mind. There are a lot of coincidental dependencies, but it's in the realm of possibility.

On a keypad with 20 buttons, the oft used buttons will get smudges and the search space would be reduced. With fewer buttons, you increase the chance that all buttons would be smudged, thereby potentially reducing wear/smudge patterns as a way of reducing the search space.

comment Does multiple numbers per button have an effect on security?
But you can't have just one button .... The problem with your assessment is that it only holds if the number of digits is unknown or unknowable. With products like this, it is trivial to know the length, which makes fewer buttons a problem..

comment What other actions can I take to remove malware from an compromised device and how do I do them?
@DreamingAboutJohnCena with a username like yours, I hope you're a good writer :) Tell you what, edit your question with the link, but I will close this question in its current format. If people read the full story, we might be able to salvage the question and put you on another train of thought.

@DreamingAboutJohnCena I agree that your questions of a deep factory wipe or a list of verified processes for your device, they can be answered, but they are for your device vendor. This isn't a security question.

@Ben this is a pretty standard device - there is no complexity like you suggest.

@DreamingAboutJohnCena we get a LOT of people coming here and claiming that a hacker has hacked them and griefing them. 99% of the time, it is a user who is freaking out over nothing or a simple technical issue. We ask about proof that there has been an actual compromise so that we don't waste our time. As to your question, regardless of being hacked, your question is a technical support question for your device vendor. You want a deep factory wipe or a list of verified processes for your device. That's something only the vendor can help you with.

comment UDP flood from my own IP
I'm not sure I believe Symantec about IGMP. I'm not seeing a security question here (at least not yet).

comment My internet is being monitored
@FirstLast how do you know that things are public? How do you know that people know what you watch?

comment Block a website to Other Users, But the router can access it
This is really going to be up to the capabilities of the router (how it blocks). Otherwise, you will need to put a second filtering device between your router and your users. Either way, this really isn't a question that is on-topic here (network/device config) but I'm unsure where it would be on-topic.

comment Are files deleted before encrypting then formatted able to be retrieved?
"encrypting the drive" in the question is a little ambiguous, I guess, In my world, that means FDE.

comment Sniffing WhatsApp chat using Wireshark
Ok, then your question really is: how do I capture wifi traffic with Wireshark. Wireshark has tutorials on this, and many online tutorials from other sources.
