Web: Six dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

Very interesting article about computer security. Here are the six dumb ideas:
  1. Default Permit
  2. Enumerating Badness
  3. Penetrate and Patch
  4. Hacking is cool
  5. Educating Users
  6. Action is Better Than Inaction
Read the article to understand what it all means. Basically what I got out of it is that white-listing should work better than black-listing.

While you're at it, read the Feynman article as well.
