    I wonder, it seems like nobody cares about security issues... or very little.

    what did you do to prevent yourself fraud/hacks/gov...?

    I read a lot of threads where people dropin there skype ID's etc.
    And everybody should know, skype isn't a save platform and specially not in case of grey or black hat topics.

    Why BHW have no Security Forum?

    I see a thread from 2011...

    ...but in terms of sec. things change constantly.

    What do you think?

    I think people have a personal responsibility to protect themselves and that means keeping up with security issues.
    There are plenty of security forums out there where people can learn from security professionals.

    As for a security section on BHW, I think it might have been suggested before, but you might want to request it again here:

    true, I'm just curios and want to start a random sec. talk. At least it is like you said... but a chain is as strong as its weakest link... you know :D

    I sort of agree with you and had previously wanted a Sec section, but since then I have seen some people give terrible advice to others, so I think for it to work it would need to be monitored by a Mod with a security background.
    Anyway, will ask Mods to move this thread to the Suggestions section.

    I'd rather not.

    We're a SEO forum, adding in a security forum will encourage hacking discussion, which we don't allow.

    Just my thoughts :)

    I'm with IKS, I don't like the idea of a security forum because it might prompt hacking discussions.

    As for the lack of security threads, I still have a bunch of notes from a security-based BST I was going to launch here before becoming a moderator, but since I scrapped the BST idea, I can convert it into a website security guide for the forum. However, as you noted, the world of security is constantly changing, so any thread I create for the forum would be more generalised so I don't have to constantly update it. It's also easier for me to moderate a single thread than it is to moderate any entire section, so this eliminates the possibility of any hacking discussions.

    well, there is room for interpretation, but I got your point :)

    I started the tread more for random talk... like what VPN did you use, which messenger you preffer and so on, just kind a crypto talk.

    But its OK, Mods can bury the Thread
