Our Exposed World – How Exposures Translate into Attacks -


One of the questions I am asked often is why am I not more concerned about sophisticated attacks? Why do I not deeply investigate new exploits as they are released? To which I reply “because the old ones still cause more damage.” After 30 years of looking at the security of networks, the main trend I see can be summarized in a stanza from an old poem I used to read, “The Calf Path” by American poet Sam Foss.”

A hundred thousand men were led
By one calf near three centuries dead;
They followed still his crooked way
And lost a hundred years a day;
For thus such reverence is lent
To well-established precedent.

We have protocols and computer code that were created when dial up computers and the move Wargames was in the theatres that have been rolled into newer technology, that then was rolled into other technology, and never did we go back and look at how vulnerable these older protocols and code were because “we’ve always used them and nothing has happened so we must be safe.”
