There's currently no auto-lockout on failed password attempts on Mac. Bear in mind any brute force attack is limited by how fast someone can type. It's not like they can hit it with 2000 tries a second. See https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/739874/how-many-possible-combinations-in-8-character-password for number of possible combinations.

When I do NSLOOKUP for domains i use, i get a response that ALWAYS states "non-authoritative answer" This is extremely concerning.

Currently any user could SSH in (or via a script) do "ls /home" and see all the accounts on the server. They can't do anything with that information of course, "ls /home/user" would fail, however I'm wondering how "ls /home" could just show the current user's folder. Remove the 'read' permission from /home with chmod go-r. (...

This is an uphill battle. The general solution is to use chroot jails and/or custom shells. Doing this does have limitations though. IMHO, allowing shell access opens up a large can of security worms, and I wonder if you are undereatimating the risks of shell access.

When you are logged in from an administrator account and UAC is enabled, most of the programs are executed with the permission of a standard user. The degree of protection varies according to the UAC level that you choose. The UAC prompt is not an absolute protection, as hackers are pretty good about convincing you to press "Yes". Meaning that the ...

Connect the printer to a Windows computer directly via an USB cable. You can't upgrade via network.

Almost ten years laterXD To show privileges "WhoAmI.exe /Priv" might do it, but "SecEdit.exe" could be worth a look at as well. Hint: If the command "FSUtil" exits with errorlevel 1, you do NOT have admin privileges.

SSH is a comunication protocol meant to be secure. So why the comunication should be secure while the password transmission shouldn't ?

It seems that WDAC doesn't have proper support for code signing certificates or something is just wrong with mine. I generated a self signed code signing certificate following Microsoft official documentation and now I am able to boot windows with my signed policy

The assumption in other answers here is that HTTPS is only used for browsing the web by general consumers. Granted, that a huge majority of HTTPS traffic is the web, but the two are only protocols, and there are edge cases (e.g. a REST based API) where HTTPS could be as specialist as FTP, in which case the argument for and against self-signed certs don't ...

Is there any conceptual reason why we don't use SSCs on HTTPS, but seems to be fine (may be wrong here) for FTP secure? I think you are wrong here, i.e. it is not acceptable. But, FTP is a dying technology as for example shown by the major browsers removing support for it. There only comparably few FTP servers in the first place, at least compared to the ...

It all depends on the threat model, reason for using SSL and user base. In the general/arbitrary case where external users are transferring mildly critical data across the wider Internet both certs should be signed by a 3rd party. On the other extreme if only a handful of devs need it, a self signed cert can simply be accepted as a one off per ftp client ...
