Isn't that so cute...

The user's going to pick dancing pigs over security every time.
— Bruce Schneier


This in one sentence summarizes how the bad guys penetrate defenses time after time. how can that cute little game be harmful.

This is also why Vista's UAC giving administrator rights to every setup program that is run.

I don't know about you, but dancing pigs are much better than security. Most people don't want to bother with it. Making security easy as dancing pigs is the challenge security administrators have.

Yes tralfaz you are correct. When security is hard or impedes a user in getting their job done, or enjoying their home computer, they will circumvent the security.
