Forgot your password?

"into using a password manager that holds -unique to every site- passwords that I can't even remember myself at 25 characters of complete ASCII gibberish. And you know what? It's easier on top of being more secure."

Bingo. Why would anyone want to remember all of their passwords? I wouldn't even recognise 99% of mine if you showed them to me.

But my method of creating passwords myself only takes three screens-worth of text to describe and has a mere three caveats! Wait, no I got that step wrong. Oh that site doesn't work with the method because I skipped a section.

Oh those early sites used my old method of simply creating passwords which wasn't as good. Here I can explain it all to you, it's simple!

Or I just type Win R->password->enter.

Just checked my £30 Timex and it's lost two seconds in about a year. That's what I get for buying cheap. It was worth a bit more retail value - Timex sold me this at wholesale price by way of apology when they couldn't repair my previous Timex. It was 15 years old and they didn't have the parts any more. That cost a whole £40 in 1996.

Trying to get Flash to fall under all of EMET's protections is like trying to hit three moving targets. As soon as Flash gets updated, the executables it uses run under different file names and any specific mitigations are then lost. Thankfully, most applications that are easy meat for EMET's good work are a one-off config.

Cnet chose the wrong guy to mess with when it was found even nmap wasn't safe to such underhanded and dangerous practises. Now it seems SourceForge is following in their footsteps as discovered by this Eset anti-virus user. Unsuspecting users will be suffering the joys of InstallCore if they install a hosted project's program that has been wrapped in the malware-bundling platform."

If you're looking to block access to a given list of domains/host names, Privoxy can be configured to do this and no more. If you're actually looking just to do DNS caching on your grandma's computer, try this from an elevated command prompt:

sc config dnscache start= auto
net start dnscache

Then type out 1000 times: I will not turn off the local DNS caching system.

"The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP." It goes on to list migration instructions. Is this the end for our beloved open source, multi-platform crypto solution? The question is what now? Planned forks? Any recommendations for freely available, open and multi-platform solutions that will allow for moving storage devices from Linux -> Windows -> Mac?"

Despite the fact the linked Windows installer matches the given digital signature and the .exe's integrated digital signature checks out?

Maybe the TrueCrypt developers took all the thanks that we gave them, i.e. nothing but "YOUR CODE QUALITY IS SOMEWHAT UNREADABLE AND USES SOME OLD THINGS!", and have told us to fuck off. Something we rightly deserve.

I clicked on the link of the post's submitter, advised them of the error and a link to this thread, and less than three hours from sending the email it was fixed. I don't pretend to understand the politics between /. and the Linux Foundation or yourself, but it might be worth telling /. directly when they make such an error.
