Comment Most times SSL is not the problem (Score 2) 223

IMHO SSL is often not the problem. Most websites/webapps are hacked through badly configured and unpatched servers or through programming errors in the site itself. If you're concerned about security, make sure that your website/webapplication/cms is secure. OWASP is a good source for hints and tips. They even have a top-10 for this stuff. So, if SHA-512 is you're only problem, you're doing just fine.

... only to see that these peepz are replaced by the same person with a different name.

Currently I'm not in that killing spree mood even though there are a lot of persons that the world could do without to make it a better place. Why should I assume that killing a bunch of people a couple of years ago would brighten up my day or make my life better is some way.

If I would go kill some for the greater good, I'm not that better than whatever terrorist is running around currently trying to harm others for the greater good.

As 3\/1l as this may seem, this might even be a good thing from a security point of view. The MS-guys have made huge steps the last decade in improving their security processes. We all get a monthly mea culpa and a bunch of fixes. This can only but improve the track record of Adobe.
