What happens when you press the "history erase" button?

Maybe something good, maybe something bad ...

But you wont know ...

BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PRESS IT, ARE YOU!?

Presumably also, a document originating from anywhere, local or web, should not, by default, have any access to local file:/// resources.

comment Chrome browser: Security implications of "--allow-file-access-from-files"
Ok, so you're saying that, by default, an HTML document opened in the browser, originating from the local file-system, cannot subsequently refer to another local file. Permitting this means potentially a maliciously crafted HTML + JS page dropped somewhere in your filesystem, when opened in a local browser, could submit the contents of a sensitive local file to an external entity.

comment Different UID/GID when using an ext4 formatted USB drive with another computer
@WarrenYoung An internal hard disk is not what would generally be considered "removable media". I think there is a good case for the use of UDF on smaller removable flash devices, if it were needed to be used on different hosts and OSs. tanguy.ortolo.eu/blog/article93/usb-udf

comment Can swap be encrypted per user?
Can these other users gain root access to this host? If they can't, then I think I'm right to say the normal permissions system should prevent them reading the swap files of other users (i.e i think its correct that even on un-encrypted swap, users shouldn't be able to read each others swap files). If they can get root they could probably extract the keys for another users encrypted swap partition anyway?

comment Unrecognized expression node ArrayIndex using linq with predicate
Yes - I was doing pretty much the same thing and Split() was the root of the problem. The DBA had changed the format of data in the field I was using and the char I was splitting on was no longer present.
