This is the Result Declaration form of our university, It's all good but there is one thing (bug) in this form, you only need to fill the Recaptcha once and you can that same Recaptcha to extract as many results as you want. Though not a Security issue, we can extract results of many students as roll numbers are sequential, we just need a bot to fill roll number and click the button. The only use would be to conduct surveys on results, but, a bug is a bug.8

Rant won't be very readable though.36
Anyone has heard of "Google foobar challenges"?
I found out that it's a secret process of hiring developers and programmers all over the world.
Google triggers it when a user searches for some Programming related stuff.51
I think the fact that even Apple can't unlock your phone if you forget your passcode proves that they use very naive encryption method.
Suppose my data is "Hey This is Some Data" and Passcode is 1234, I could just Jumble this data using that passcode and It will be difficult to decrypt without Passcode. And If data is huge, it will be fairly impossible to do so. But that doesn't make it a good encryption method.
Such encryption, though safe is not practical, Imagine if there was no "Forget Password" Option on any account, I usually forgot my password very often when I was a child.
Apple has been doing such things for years, Using Bad things as a selling point. Apple users are dumb anyways because they don't want to control their phone.
Reset Password is a weak point which might be exploited but in such cases, usability is more important than security. Any service which doesn't allow resetting Password is a shitty service and I would never use such a service, They are too naive.774
So, Recently I had made a short film "Brazen Epiphany" and I added it to IMDB, I discovered that IMDB has a flawed verification system, they don't actually verify edits. So, I credited myself for acting in various films. And, they got approved. Then one day, a writer of one of those movies discovered this and ranted on Twitter about it
I told him about this whole stuff, Then I was contacted by a journalist amd they published a story on this
I know it's pretty lame to give wrong information to a community website, but I enjoyed it5
