10 Immutable Laws of Computer Security

10 Immutable Laws of Computer Security:

Law #1: If a bad guy can persuade you to run his program on your computer, it's not your computer anymore

Law #2: If a bad guy can alter the operating system on your computer, it's not your computer anymore

Law #3: If a bad guy has unrestricted physical access to your computer, it's not your computer anymore

Law #4: If you allow a bad guy to upload programs to your website, it's not your website any more

Law #5: Weak passwords trump strong security

Law #6: A computer is only as secure as the administrator is trustworthy

Law #7: Encrypted data is only as secure as the decryption key

Law #8: An out of date virus scanner is only marginally better than no virus scanner at all

Law #9: Absolute anonymity isn't practical, in real life or on the Web

Law #10: Technology is not a panacea

Sorry KC. Insider techno jargon.
I'll try to be simpler in future.
A good on line dictionary:

Just doing your part to keep the blogosphere safe. And I see it's working. :)

E=MC2 = E=MCsquared
Can't get nothin past me. lol!

Forgive me, I think it's time to turn the computer off.
Goodnight.
