comment Could I recover the content of file from its checksum/hash?
Dutch Jan Sloot claimed he could compress a complete movie down to 8 kilobytes of data. Perhaps he used these Sha256 checksums. Unfortunately he died before publishing his work.

comment How can I verifiably demonstrate that steganography or hidden partitions do not exist?
Setting all unused data to '0' does not demonstrate that a hidden partition does not exist. With TrueCrypt the partition will seem to hold perfectly random data. With truly random data any outcome is equally possible including all zeros (or all ones, or all digits of pi). It will be extremely unlikely but not impossible.

comment Is it unsafe to keep multiple versions of a KeePass database?
@DominykasMostauskis what version are you using? My version 2.29 keeps a history of every single edit I make. You are probably using the Classic version? When you switch to the professional version (just as free) you get the full history.

comment Is it unsafe to keep multiple versions of a KeePass database?
You do realize KeePass keeps a history of your old passwords inside the database as well? For that purpose there is no need to keep multiple version of the database.

comment Phone calls that listen to you saying hello and then say “goodbye”
If that were true they should at the very least say something more tempting like 'I am calling to tell you that your order is ready to be picked up'. That would make 10 times as many people call back.

comment Is it possible to bypass HTML character reference encoding to inject SQL in this context?
@Mico, how can you tell that replacement is happening at the serverside? Do you have access to the server?

comment Why don't popular web services mask the CVV?
@Gray actually "why doesn't google do it" has probably a factual answer (but we do not know it) and "should we be masking CVVs?" is opinion based.

comment Access token vs. UserID + access token
When you do so you have effectively introduced an userID. You just happen to store it as the last 6 bytes of your expanded token.
