Heh... can you imagine? Someone calls at 2:00AM with a prank call to ask "Is your refrigerator running?" and when you go to look, the damned thing has taken off down the street because of a bar code on a milk carton?

That's thinking outside the square - even as a developer/SQL-admin, I have to admire his ingenuity.

Security is a little interesting but to learn about it you have to dig by yourself usually. It's not promoted like other types of information. A reason for that I believe is that it's not easy to teach since there so many ways and so much to think about and it's not documented like an API because there is none, security breaches comes from peoples imagination set to practice.

To build security functions is also costly and time consuming to make it good and effective so it does not slow down your application. When you have a time line and a budget security seams to always come last and that is a problem and we know it, but will it be a problem fro your application or your environment? Maybe it wont. So time, money and knowledge limitations seams to put security last, in many cases and thus we wont get rid of most security issues for a long time.

That gives me an idea for a new vanity plate so that the electronic license plate readers on the toll highway won't bill me. Thank you for sharing that picture. It certainly made me laugh... and then think about my data import processes.

Great picture, and what a genius to think of that! Thanks for sharing it!

As evidenced by the recent data theft here on the east coast of the US, where two guys drove through TJX's corporate parking lot and wirelessly stole over 300,000 credit card numbers, I think the greatest danger to any kind of security is our own shortsightedness, ego, and more often than not too much 'intelligence' completely shadowing simple common sense.

Let's face it, throughout history, security is often broken by man's own shortsighted presumptions.

At Troy, a great battle was fought with great heroics and yet not one single person bothered to ask, "Why are they giving us this giant horse?" as they opened the gates to the 'impenetrable' city, and rolled their enemies in, to their own doom.

Those who forget or ignore history are doomed to repeat it - and computer security is well laden with pristine examples of overly-intelligent people failing to use common sense.



There's no such thing as dumb questions, only poorly thought-out answers...

That is pretty hilarious.

I can only imagine being the one troubleshooting the source of the dropped table.

There were a few doubters, Laocoon, who railed against the acceptance of the horse, calling it a Greek trick. He of course was ignored, and then murdered by serpents sent by the gods. Cassandra warned them too, but she was ignored as well.

All too frequently in my career, I've run into a general apathetic attitude from management regarding security. Every time I stand up for it, I always think of Laocoon...
