comment Is there open source software which is to Process Monitor what ProcessHacker is to Process Explorer?
@cmorse if you want to pre-empt the stallman fanatics taking issue of your use of the term free, or even acknowledge stallman in the topic of open source / libre software then a better phrase to use would be to say it "totally no cost". process explorer isn't libre but it is no cost.

comment Should I just use a PATA/SATA adapter to retrieve data from old disks?
@JCM It's cheap no risk and takes seconds to try. And if you even imagined a risk(without any reason to imagine it) as you did, then you are perhaps overly cautious.. - that said - if you ever find things can plug in two different ways or in different things, and power is involved,then b cautious eg this with usb-ide 2.5" adaptors has taken computer technicians by surprise superuser.com/questions/554540/… it would break it 100% of the time but there aren't many things like that in IT.

@JCM before doing something expensive or time consuming or very risky, yes. But not so much for this

comment Forward HTTP traffic to a server behind gateway
Why can't you use NAPT port forwarding on your gateway? btw, were you planning on running that socat line on an external server? also, socat aside, You could use this line from your internal server to external server 5.6.7.8 ssh -R 8080:127.0.0.1:8080 user@5.6.7.8 (format is PORT1:IP2:PORT2 user@IP1 that'd solve it4you.PORT1 is the port that will open listening on the comp you r calling ur external server.IP2:PORT2 is where2forward once it reaches the internal server i.e. forward it nowhere really(2itself).IP1 is'ext server'.The first but I am interested in other solutions though..!like socat!

comment What happens if you plug an internal SATA disk into an eSATA port?
@defaye do you mean you plugged it in with no adapter? out of interest, did you have to force it? and did you see if it worked?

comment What are the risks of creating a gnupg private key with no passphrase?
your question is 2 part A)How can another user gain access to your private key file or any file B)What can they do with it. Re 'A' Dragonlord gave a great answer, the root user can. Re 'B' of course they can decrypt the files encrypted with your public key, if they have a copy of your private key file and can use it, and they can then use it straight away if you put no passphrase on it.

comment iptables TCP flags
@begueradj it's quite a technical question, he'd be very lucky to get a good answer here. Though I guess if it's unsuitable for security.stackexchange.com then he hasn't got much choice

comment iptables TCP flags
the common advice with iptables is experts (of which i'm not one), deal with specifics of tcp flags in iptables.. and regular techie people use something like inai.de/documents/Perfect_Ruleset.pdf you sound like a hobbyist and newbie, asking a theoretical question and maybe they don't know and don't care.

comment iptables TCP flags
@ott-- any idea why the security.stackexchange people didn't want it? filtering malformed packets seems pretty security related.. the only flaw I see is the questioner seems like a newbie doing something quite technically advanced.

comment Why Windows Firewall does not block outgoing traffic?
@Tetsujin right that sounds like a wise alternative to software that frequently prompts you over outgoing connections, it seems you wouldn't want that on your windows machine. What software are you using on your MAC, and when you say outgoing only, do you mean blocks incoming? it sounds like (understandably) you don't have and don't want frequent prompting on your mac either. That was my point. Not only the average user wouldn't want it but the techie or above average techie, generally wouldn't want it either.

@Tetsujin not just the average user, I think even techie users, if their firewall kept bothering them would click yes yes yes and turn it off altogether.
