Myth #1: You know as much as Hackers know

Myth #1: http://weblogs.asp.net/mikeshaw/articles/181173.aspx

Oh dear, well I really am new to this blogging thing, so sorry for posting that last item twice! So, I’ve been sitting on writing my article about this first myth for ages.  I’ve made lots of different attempts at trying to convey the message that it’s not really possible to pre-empt what a hacker will do because they always have the advantage – what Michael Howard calls “The Attacker's Advantage and the Defender's Dilemma” and Tim Sneath blogged about here.  Well here goes, I’m sure you’ll let me know if I came even close to fulfilling my goal and I can try to build your feedback into next week’s myth “The internet is full of nice people”, which perhaps would have made a better first myth, but I was trying to parody Jim McCarthy’s 21 rules, but after thinking about things, that really isn’t going to work....  Anyway, I've posted Myth #1 here.

 

I hope you like it!

Mike 

PS Please let me know if posting it as an Article/Story is best, or should I just post it as a regular Post?
