Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

Here is an excellently written article on computer security. It is educating and amusing enough to keep your attention for its entire span. Best of all- we all can relate to and identify all the six dumb ideas:
1. Default Permit
2. Enumerating Badness
3. Penetrate and Patch (knock...knock...is Microsoft listening?)
4. Hacking is Cool
5. Education Users (yes, it is a dumb idea according to the author...read about it)
6. Action is better than Inaction

And there are some minor dumbs that you shouldn't miss also.
