comment Microsoft OneNote being detected as Malware
Just in case this doesn't get answered and someone comes along looking for information about this, it appears this has been cross-posted on the Avast forums.

In what country is this, if you don't mind me asking?

comment What is the simplest safe way to convey a password to another person?
@Grimmjow We assume that the code that onetimesecret has used on their website is the same as the code that they've published via github. ;) At some point, we do have to trust.

comment (How) Can outsiders discover the pages that are being hosted on my server?
I agree with minitech... It sounds like #4 might easily be followed up with "5) you didn't strap down your tinfoil hat." Unless you can give a citation for Chrome being used on the crawler, don't suggest it is the case.

comment Should I let a user know they have entered an unknown username or email address?
@micb Read the linked message above. An attacker could just attempt to create an account with the username, and easily learn if it has already been used.

comment What are some considerations before moving personal data to Google Drive?
As an aside, regarding deleting search history: it is my understanding from reading "The Google Story" by David Vise that Google never intentionally deletes data, rather just removes it from accessibility, and perhaps overwrites it at a later date. (It's been a while since I read the book, and since the book was published. This has a chance of being outdated and/or inaccurate, so take it with a grain of salt.)

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 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?
