So are support to try to build a systems that are idiot proof? I would
say not... If someone neglect to lock their front door and is robbed, is
that the builders fault because he didn't install automatic locking
No, it's absurd to say that we should build something idiot proof. My
point is that even when the fixes are in, people just don't apply them.
Firewalls is the best way to deal with network security.... and there
system configuration that we can do to change that fact...
I think we're in violent agreement here...
