comment Modern, security-conscious, PHP book?
In answer to your final paragraph; PHP security is a great area to be in career-wise. Given that the vast majority of sites out there are PHP and very insecure. People scoff at PHP because it lends itself to being very badly written. It is also a pretty broken language in general, making it often difficult to secure properly. PHP is unlikely to be a technology of choice when implementing a security-focused system for these reasons.

comment To DMZ, or not to DMZ
@Safado what you just explained has nothing to do with a DMZ, and everything to do with network segregation.

comment Can you make a digital signature using the receiver's public key?
@Matthew incorrect. I could tamper with the document and recalculate the 'signature' because the key used to do so is public. A signature of this kind holds no value.

comment How can I see traceroute details in NMAP?
Yeah on linux you would just do traceroute <remote_ip> on windows, tracert <remote_ip> does the same thing.

comment Why does broad based malware use XOR obfuscation?
+1 pretty much this. There is always a trade-off. Sometimes file size/computational complexity is more important than obfuscation. Certainly highly complex obfuscation technologies exist.

@Edwardo yeah there are a number of things you can do. The easiest would be to use unix tools like find, md5sum and diff.
