So there's a couple of questions over on the main site that have either been closed or have multiple close votes that essentially (to me) talk about using "offensive" security techniques (as opposed to defensive) in a scenario where the questioner describes their usage as legitimate.
the iPad one got closed at the domain admin password one has three close votes as it stands at the moment.
What I'd be interested to know is a bit more detail on why these are off-topic/bad questions?
Here's my take on it. the iPad one is a scenario that is quite commonly faced and relates to security. A relative dies and you need access to their computing equipment to close accounts/get contact details etc.
Isn't it a valid question to ask whether there is a legitimate way to bypass the security of the device to enable their relatives to achieve this task? The answer may well be "no there's no way of doing that I'm afraid" but that doesn't invalidate the question.
Same with the question on the person saying that they've forgotten their domain password and are looking to get access to the DC. I'm not sure I see why that's not a legitimate query, it seems like a possible scenario (admins do forget passwords) and related to security.
Anyway pointers gratefully received :)
