    [lubuntu] Re: TOR Browser

    I disagree completely and here is why:

    [lubuntu] Re: TOR Browser

    TOR will reduce your overall security by a large margin. Why? Well, because it is very easy to set yourself up as an exit node and sniff the traffic. Since SSLStrip is also pretty easy to use, you're...

    That article is semi-correct. It has some facts wrong. The article makes it look like this is a new discovery within a few years time, but this is something people have been researching since 1999....

    [other] WiTopia users beware

    I was once a fan of WiTopia's OpenVPN service because it was stable, the company seemed to live by their claims in regards to end-user privacy, and seemed to take the security of their service...

    [all variants] Re: Need help with cipher for cryptsetup!

    XTS-PLAIN is perfectly fine when encrypting hard drives that are smaller than 2TB's. However, using XTS-PLAIN on hard drives larger than 2TB's will dramatically reduce your security because of...

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Resetting a Forgotten Password - I Have a Problem with This
