I would definitely say there is an overlap in terms of what is on topic. I've even found some similar questions on our site : How to identify the presence of rootkits from an image of Linux memory? -> Are there any artifacts for filesystem forensics in memory?, How would one know if they have a rootkit? How can I read data via ADB if an Android device is ...

I don't see a difference in usage. Some questions are even tagged with both. Since ssl is a synonym for tls, and tags are preferably nouns, I'd suggest to merge them withtls-interception as a master and ssl-interception as a synonym.

No, we do not need them. Yes, please remove them. While I (like everybody else) love XKCD, there is no need for it in chat. If I want to read it, I know where to find it. (Plus, it should be read together with the title which is not posted in chat.) The blog feed is at least a bit more on topic, but nine times out of ten it is just promotion of something I ...

On another SE, I would say "no". But on Information Security, I think the answer is "yes". The notion of "deleting information", in a security context, implies - or should imply - securely deleting that information.

It seems like this was more or less a race-condition, as explained by @tim and @TildalWave in the comments. My question was close-voted due to it's sub-par and unclear title. The title was improved by others when close-voting had already started. The edit couldn't prevent the question being closed, so reviewers started the reopening process. The question ...

The key problem here is that 'best' is an opinion, and Stack Exchange is very much not a place to ask questions that will result in opinions. As an example, I may really like tool X. Someone else may hate it and prefer tool Y, which I think is terrible. How would you decide which is correct for you from that info? We already have two great pages for what you ...

The following is a rough draft of the proposed section. As there are many sites in the Stack Exchange network, some questions that are only loosely security-related may be a better fit on a different site. If you're still unsure if you should ask your question on Information Security Stack Exchange, feel free to ask in our chat or on our meta site. Below is ...

I checked Stack Exchange Meta, and the problem has an explanation there: Site icons jumbled up The problem is fixed now, at least for me. I had to clear the cache to get the right ones back, though. So if the problem persists for you, try that. So case closed, I guess.

“POLP” is not a common abbreviation in my experience. I didn't recognize it in your question before I saw the expansion, whereas I'm familiar with the concept under its full name. So I don't see the value of keeping the synonym around. That one question (which had an even worse tag) should just be retagged. Also, since the tag length limit has been raised, ...

We replaced the background image with an updated version: It might take a few days for the change to propagate to new ads because caching.

Whoops. Fixed now, though it will take a bit for the page caching to update to reflect the fix.

Yes - when on the Unanswered questions page, click on newest and that will sort by date.

Sorry about that. A bad image snuck into the deploy, causing this issue.

Thanks again for reporting this issue. Fix is now waiting in repo for build, so it should be live within next couple hours.

It looks like people are using "vulnerabilities" interchangeably with "vulnerability" eg. here, here, and here. Another common usage would be as a synonym for "vulnerability management" as in here, here, or here. This appears along side "known vulnerabilities" for this variant. I think the discussion for "vulnerability management" and "vulnerability" go ...

Yes. This is perfectly valid idea.

We rolled out a new top bar last year, so I doubt very much that this bug still obtains.

Agreed - I have had a read through the 32 questions tagged hacking and it does not add any value. I have replaced that tag on all the questions where it was the only tag, and will request burnination. And done!
