Yes yes, I'm well aware of the difference between hackers and crackers. To me, the terms are interchangable. Its not my fault the media decided to call crackers, hackers.
Ok, sorry for misunderstanding you.

I was refering to the network as say your home computer. I was trying to make the point that you should be alot more concerned with someone sniffing passwords other than just your perlmonks password, or with something potentially worse, say using your netbios shares (or any other vulnerability for that matter) to "hijack" your computer.

The point is, that I often use my notebook from other networks(with wireless lan, so no switching) where I don't know everyone. I do know that most of these people there are able to use techniques to get any information that may give some fun, such as account information. I already use other means such as pop3s (and I don't have open netbios shares...) to minimize open vulnerabilities, and I wondered if it was possible to do so with perlmonks.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
