How does a company check the password received from your phone keypad during a call?

I had to call customer service recently regarding my 401(k) and robo call in the beginning asked me to enter my social security number using the keypad followed by a # and then asked for my account password using the keypad followed by # where special characters are *.

If the passwords are stored as hashes in their database, how is it possible that they can compare your input and verify it matches the password stored?

Punched in through a keypad, Hunter21 becomes 48683721 which would be indistinguishable from gtmtd7b1. It does not seem reasonable to compare all possible combinations of 48683721 to the hash because when including special characters and capitalization, it becomes more complex.

My only thought would be that they are storing my password as plaintext and comparing my keypad entered value to it and that would be concerning. I suppose when I first create the password they could convert it to the keypad equivalent number and hash/store that.

Is this common practice?

Be Prepared – Caretaker Emergency Phone Number and Call Sheet

In the event that you haven’t done this yet, do it today! Spot all crisis telephone numbers on a piece of paper on your fridge or a conspicuous place where all can see it, as almost a telephone. Keep it in a fixed spot. Try not to let individuals wander off with it. Tape it set up in the event that you should. Numbers you should list: 911 (or your nation’s 911 proportional); poison control; a couple (or your) office and cell numbers; specialist, dental specialist, and veterinarian numbers; a family member, dear companion’s or neighbor’s telephone number; your home or potentially PC telephone numbers; your place of residence.
 
It very well may be unpleasant when there is a crisis so compose on a piece of paper what an individual should tell the administrator when they call 911. Keep this sheet close to the crisis telephone list. Taiwan Mobile Database
 
Test of what to compose for somebody thinking about your kid: This is (really compose, give your name). I am calling in light of the fact that (compose, say why). It includes a kid. The telephone number here is (really compose it in). The location here is (again compose it in). The meds they are taking are (compose it in). They are sensitive to (write in any prescriptions they are hypersensitive to assuming any). Their pediatricians name is (compose it in). What would it be advisable for me to do until you arrive?

Weird phone call [closed]

about a year ago I got a phone call from Africa and when i picked up i could hear weird music in the back, they played in different orders and it just sounded weird it was terrible like they didn’t know how to play. I said hello with no respond back so i hung up. Yesterday i got a weird phone call again but i didn’t pick up. they called a few times and then decided to text me saying that i had to pick up ASAP and that there’s a party. He called me babe like we were dating. Today they decided to keep calling so i picked up and the call was from Sweden (where i live) again no answer so i said hello but no one answered so i hung up.

i’m really confused about what is going on and if somebody have heard of something like this before?

Why do we call the class “Barbarians” instead of “Berserks” or “Berserkers”?

This is a history-of-gaming question, and it has to do with the name choice between Barbarian and Berserkers. Due to the race-and-class mixing and matching of many different gaming systems, you can get combinations of barbarians with very non-barbaric races. Examples could include: “High Elf Barbarian” and “Gnome Barbarian.” On the surface, these combinations seem unusual but otherwise OK. It gets worse when you grab a dictionary.

According to Merriam-Webster:

Barbarian:

1: of or relating to a land, culture, or people alien and usually believed to be inferior to another land, culture, or people

2: lacking refinement, learning, or artistic or literary culture

Berserk:

1: an ancient Scandinavian warrior frenzied in battle and held to be invulnerable

2: one whose actions are recklessly defiant

If you look at the features of a “barbarian” class, in almost any system, you notice that they align better with the definition of a Berserk (or Berserker). This is reinforced when you read about berserkers in norse sagas. Furthermore, if you look at the linguistic roots of barbarians, it was used to refer to anyone who was not of a particular culture.

Why do we call these classes “Barbarians” instead of “Berserks” or “Berserkers”?

Call of duty disk space [closed]

my friends and I have been wondering about the following thing: Let’s say COD:MW takes 180GB of storage space, then has a 20 GB update. Afterwards, the game takes only 190GB of storage space and not 200GB. Do you you know this happens? I thought maybe it’s because some files are replacing older ones instead of just being “added on top”. Thanks !

Looking for a specific Call of Cthulhu scenario

Around a month ago, I’ve read somewhere about a scenario, which right now I can’t seem to find.

All I remember, that it’s setting was either in England or in Scotland, and it has two key antagonists. If I am not mistaken, the hook is that a dilettante asks us to investigate his missing daughter, but that’s not 100% info, maybe I am mixing things up already in my head. The other things I know about it are:

I would be really grateful if anyone could point me to the name or the book of this scenario:)

Ajax call of WordPress function

Can someone show me a good example of how to call a PHP function with Ajax? I’m trying to save an image gallery (with dynamic number of images) to database in the admin settings section. The below code is incomplete or maybe with some errors. Please show me a good example or a better way:

Save Changes

function jsAddSettingsFields(){      var elements = document.getElementsByTagName("img");     var urlsdata = new Array();      for (var i = 0, element; element = elements[i++];) {         if (elements[i].id == "idGalPic") {              urlsdata[i] = elements[i].src;  //now we have all image urls in array, now need to call add_settings_fields               var data = {                     action: 'php_addsettingsfields',                     p_urls: urlsdata //I think i need to JSON this                 };              jQuery.post( "", function( data ) );              //https://api.jquery.com/jQuery.post/         }     }  }//end of js function 

//PHP part:

        function php_addsettingsfields_callback() {              $  pic_urls = $  _POST['p_urls'];  //De-JSON-fy this variable              foreach ($  pic_urls as &$  url) {                 add_settings_field($  url);             }         add_settings_field(             'pic_url_id', // ID - slug name of field             '', // Title              array( $  this, 'pic_gal_callback' ), // Callback             'TestPlugin', // Page             'setting_section_id' // Section ID - slug name of page                  );         public function pic_gal_callback()       {            <input type="hidden" id="idPic" name="idPic" value=$  url>          }           //after all hidden fields(with gallery pic urls) are added to setting section submit the page and save the gallery urls to database 

Call center recording my credit card info

I just made a new contract over the phone with my mobile phone provider and I needed to pay the activation fee. The lady told me that they could accept only credit cards and asked me for the full details (number, expiry date, and security code, the usual stuff) over the phone.

However, she took the details personally (to input them in whatever database they use) and the calls are recorded.

I am now concerned about the security of my information: not only she has full access to my credit card, but also whoever listens to the recording. It’s a big and well-known provider, so I don’t think they could do something shady, but it still bothers me. Is it really acceptable? Should I have refused?

(Note: I live in Switzerland and I don’t know exactly what are the data protection regulations here)
