comment How to increase delay of ssh root access every time login fails
@Wulfire you are absolutely correct, but that can't be migrated because of the bounty. You will also see that the detailed answer references ServerFault.

comment How to increase delay of ssh root access every time login fails
@Wulfire The question is "how do I protect myself" which is a general question. The answer is general with specific tool mentions. The question is also 2.5 years old and the community has shifted a little since then. Your question is "how do I do this in Linux?"

comment How to increase delay of ssh root access every time login fails
Exactly. Your question has security implications, but the heart of it is a specific configuration/tool question, which is off topic here and better suited for SuperUser.

As this is a specific Linux configuration question, I'm voting to migrate to SuperUser.

comment Extraneus message about security risk when I open a new Chrome tab
Your question is a little confused: it is both a phishing technique and an indication of malware installed (likely in a Chrome extension if it went away when you switch to Firefox). Aside from that, you should have a professional look at your machine to determine if the infection was greater than just the browser. Or just nuke your computer and rebuild (you DO keep backups, right?)

comment What happens to a site that is NOT in trusted sites?
Although this is a privacy question, it might be a better fit over at SuperUser? It's highly specific to the internal workings of Windows.

comment How to check for certain USB disk activities on windows?
This is more of a Windows OS question than an InfoSec question. Although you want to apply the answer to an InfoSec application, the question itself is an OS operational question.

comment How to assign my machine static IP of a different VLAN
Have you researched to see how VLANs operate? It's not the IP that's at issue, but the routing.

comment Restrict Firefox to specific sites
Link-only answers are a problem if the link goes stale. Can you pull out the relevant details from the link to add to your answer? I'm not disagreeing with your answer in general, just that the content is too "light".

comment Restrict Firefox to specific sites
Answers that are basically a link to a resource are considered low quality, but you have the start of a good answer here. You could talk about proxies in general and offer privoxy as a specific option.

This is a Remote Desktop and Windows question, not an InfoSec question.

comment Building a secure virtual machine for penetration testing
I know that you want to use this for security purposes, but this is really a VM networking question and not an InfoSec question.
