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.

comment Questions on DDoS and IP Addresses
1. Whether a website can survive a DDoS with a small number of attacking hosts will depend on the website. 2. Please do a google search for "what are botnets". 3. Impossible to answer 4. completely off-topic to the rest of your questions - and not a security question (look up DHCP)

comment Scheduled tasks that need domain admin privileges
What you are asking about is the security best practices of "service accounts", in case you are looking for a search term. That you use a service account for task scheduler doesn't matter, in this case.

comment Do banks use anything besides AES encryption?
Your edit doesn't actually address any of the issues in the comments. Are you aware that AES is a symmetric algorithm?

You have not actually asked a question. You have also not provided details. We can't help unless you can be more specific about the details and ask an actual question.

comment What are the alternatives to door passcodes?
Folks, this is why we try to narrow the scope of questions. Securing the authentication of a web service is radically different from securing physical access. It's always important that we are all on the same page, especially when people can use terms that are ambiguous.

comment Do banks use anything besides AES encryption?
A company the size of a bank will have many different types of encryption to encrypt different types of data in different ways. Please narrow your question to what type of encryption you are asking about.

curiosity is perfectly fine, but take a look at the situation from our point of view - we are here to help, but we are not going to take personal risks to satisfy the curiosity of a perfect stranger

comment Sniffing WhatsApp chat using Wireshark
I'm not seeing any difference between what you want and being able to see any 3rd party wifi traffic in Wireshark (especially since you expect the data to be encrypted). Are you simply asking how to capture another device's traffic on another computer? If so, there are numerous Wireshark tutorials for this.

I think the OP is assuming that the communication will be over wifi. I'm not sure this answers the question.

New TRUSTe standards state that sites now must ban certain commonly used password words, like "password" and "123456" and repeating patterns, like "1111111"

We are not a malware analysis site. We will not dissect an unknown file for you. If you want a generic process, you can use a sandbox, like cuckoo, to run the file and analyze its behaviour over time.

And no one here would run Windows? You are a stranger to us, and the file is even stranger. Give us code and we can help.

If you can post the code or relevant sections of text files, we might be able to help you. Otherwise, you are asking to know the basic steps for malware binary analysis.
