comment Can a computer virus be stored somewhere else than on the hard drive?
What is obvious about EICAR as an example? All malware is code that needs to be compiled or interpreted. I am completely confused as to why EICAR is an example. Is it just because it's short enough for the average person to type?

comment What's the worst a person can do if he gets a hold of a photo of my passport?
This question is very, very broad. We can answer specific question, if you can narrow down your question.

They could make a fake passport, travel to another country and commit terrorist acts.

comment Working around SYN flood attack
I would forget about the server and look to the firewalls and ISP, but it is not clear if the question is only a thought exercise about what one can do with CentOS. We need a lot more context.

comment How come I can log in on a random webcam with the password “admin”?
How can what work? How can Shodan work? How can a username/password work? How can a device be connected to the Internet and still have the default credentials in place? What, exactly, are you asking?

comment Printer IP scanning via Nmap
You need to edit your answer with these details. If you read the question, the point is being able to filter out the printer IPs from the full scan list in order to run an nmap scan on the printers alone. Your answer, with these other details, amounts to building that list by hand in Excel (or a custom script).

comment Strange behavior of Nmap
because this is about the behaviour of a specific product, you might want to submit a support request to the vendor: support.hotspotshield.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

comment Hypothetical network design
VPN and FTPS are 2 vastly different technologies solving vastly different problems. I think you need to expand on more of the situation, because this question doesn't make a lot of sense right now.

I think that if the hard drive was removed, then the OS (and any registry entries) would be gone with it.

The official Metasploit community forums might be a better place.

comment Studying to become a ASV, need some guidence
This might be a great question for Nessus support. If they are claiming the report is sufficient for PCI, then they should provide the latest format for that standard.

comment What's the down side of a dynamic numbered radial keypad?
@LamonteCristo Learning Psychologists have been trying to keep track of that, and there is a lot of research. "VAK" or "VARK" should result in some research articles.

comment How can I mitigate scam comments on my YouTube videos?
That question is about the architecture. You are asking about the use of a particular application. The answer to which is actually in a support page. This isn't a general question about comment spam, but specifically about YouTube. Also, I Googled "YouTube comment spam" and that's how I found the links I posted.

Tool recommendations are off-topic on this site. What report will work for your auditor will depend on your auditor. If they are familiar with the Nessus format, it might be fine.
