comment Can your iphone be unwittingly jailbroken?
What security perspective? This is purely an iPhone-specific technical question. It requires knowledge of the jailbreaking process, with the potential answers of 'yes' or 'no', which are explained with technical details of the specific device type. This is a product-specific technical question.

Malware is written in a variety of languages. If you want a broad experience, study them all to some extent or focus on the malware you are interested in.

comment How does Network Discovery OFF protect my computer?
The question you need to ask is, "what does this setting protect against?" Does it protect? Yes, it does. Are you fully protected against all threats? No, of course not. No setting does that.

comment Ip tracking of stolen laptop
They could have meant that having an IP alone does not point them to somewhere that they can do anything. If all you have is an IP, they might not try to do anything. Use your Teamviewer connection to gather more data? These types of crimes are very difficult to resolve.

You say it's about security, but you ask performance questions. Please clarify.

comment Ip tracking of stolen laptop
You have really asked 2 different questions: 1) how can I prove my laptop is in my city so I can inform the police, and 2) how can I physically trace my laptop? #1 is easy. #2 is hard. What are you really needing to know?

Are you aware that newer phishing techniques use websites that are only up for a matter of hours? Is your requirement to catch even these?

Why do you need it in real-time? You think you can have coverage of the entire Internet looking for particular files?

comment Can a spoofer intercept my email, insert text and send it on?
Given the highly specific addition, it is unlikely that a 'hacker' made a modification. What do you mean by "he would not be able to send a whole email"? All he needs to do is edit the email and forward it back to you.

comment Log file checksums
Unless the file contains the checksum within itself and the log file is read by a reader that looks for that checksum. Like I said, I don't have all the details.

comment Log file checksums
Look at it this way: a lot of sites that allow you to download their executable also display the MD5 hash of that file. You can see if the file has been modified before you run it. If you don't run the MD5 hash yourself, then you are none-the-wiser if someone had replaced the executable with a malicious one. The same would apply in your scenario. If they don't check, then you can make whatever changes you want.

comment Log file checksums
In that case, it makes no difference whether a checksum was created or not... But I feel like I don't have all the details here .... I also feel like I'm enabling you to do something bad.
