comment Building's server room is unlocked: What danger is my building in?
"Steal all the networking equipment" is a good reason to tell the building owner if they also own the server equipment. :)

comment Can “cat-ing” a file be a potential security risk?
When I type man cat all I see is that -e is "equivalent to -vE", but no info is given on -vE...

comment Is it legal to hack forum bots?
People could pick at your EULA. For example, assume I "own" a spambot (although ownership of such a thing would be odd... most software is licensed, not sold, so I don't "own" most of my software). Then, if I visit your website and agree to your EULA, then, per your EULA, I have agreed to be hacked even if I never deploy my bot on your site! I would try to make your EULA seem absurd in court, if there was ever legal action taken.

comment okcupid hackable with Hydra?
Probably because 1) there's virtually no legitimate reason to ask this question, and 2) even if there was legitimate reason to know the aforementioned information, if one knew how to handle the information properly, they wouldn't be asking in the first place. Just my guess, not my downvote.

comment What would be a valid approach to store private keys?
Ah! Ok--you're probably right. I was assuming that AES worked similarly to RSA, which, evidently, is a very bad assumption. :)

comment What would be a valid approach to store private keys?
If I understand keyed encryption correctly, don't you want to encrypt the data with the server's public key, and then you can decrypt it on the server with the server's private key?

Are you sure it's a magnetic strip, and not a RFID chip, that activates the lock?
