Re: 1998: "GDPR"

I see that. I feel that this is a good thing. Companies need to be more transparent with what data they use.

You mean "away" like in "in outer space"?

Vacation. Came back to a ton of emails.

Re: 1479: "Troubleshooting"

If it is just a window needing an OK click, I would just Alt-tab and hit enter. Especially if it just opened, since I can just grab it instantly.

Re: Crazy high firewall access count

Port 443 is HTTPS, while port 3306 is... usually MySQL? Weird. The high numbers are probably auto-generated source ports for the other end of the connection, ie the connection is probably from 10.0.0.4 (which I presume is the phone) on port [random large number] to Google on port 443 (HTTPS)... and...

Re: Crazy high firewall access count

UPDATE! Turns out my GF's driod smartphone is the cause. I don't really know how. The count was still climbing, every second. She shuts off her phone and then the count stops. She turns it back on, and the count resumes. Why?? We have a family plan, and each has smartphones here, but it is only her ...

Re: Crazy high firewall access count

does the target port change, or does it stay the same? if it stays the same, what is it? is anything listening on that port on your computer? The port changes. each time I refresh it gives me a random port Target has been 3306 443 63213 Source has been 55440 52320 443 In those orders. Whenever it's...

Crazy high firewall access count

So I'm up late in the morning, just messing about on the computer, when my sleepy mind decides to take a look at my firewall log. Cause you never know. I see this curious sight before me, and I'm not quite 100% sure on what's going on. Keep in mind it's a Comcast standard firewall, so it is rather c...

Re: What should I study to be a white hat?

A lot of schools are hesitant to teach such things because of the possible PR trouble of people thinking they're systematically training up black hat hackers (and to a lesser extent, the possibility that it might actually turn out that way). I remember seeing a news article once about a school that...

Re: What should I study to be a white hat?

The primary thing would be, well, the mechanics of black hat hacking. The knowledge sets required to hack a system with nefarious intent and to prevent other people from doing so have a huge amount of overlap, especially once you get to the level of how and why various techniques work rather than j...

What should I study to be a white hat?

Yes I know that generally every hacker is a grey hat, but to a company where everything is black and white, I want to be a "white hat" hacker I have done courses for network and security, got that fancy A+ cert somewhere, and have a general hatred for malware and spyware. I just want to ge...

Re: "Skins" Discussion

Again, in regard to the user above me: it may be about "creating a new character" for you, maybe, but don't try to speak for everyone else in that respect. For me, it is not inthe slightest bit the way you just described. As I said before anything it's all up to the individual fur on what...

Re: "Skins" Discussion

There are only two things that make you a furrie. 1: An interest in anthromorphic creatures 2: You call yourself one. Everything else is speculation, and up to personal preference of the individual Furrie. It's like saying someone is a sports fan. That really doesn't tell you how far they take it. S...
