  • You should never trust anyone about Computer Security if they say “Security through obscurity is the best solution” about anything.

    Security through obscurity is never an adequate solution to security. Anyone who thinks differently isn’t competent to work in Network Security.

    Web search this debate, it’s been done to death, and the conclusion is that Security through Obscurity is Not Security At All.

  • This review doesn’t have anything to do with the plugin functionality at all.

    @simbalion : I agree with all opinions that claim that this is not a safe variant. But these people always assume that “Security through obscurity is the best solution” has to be a bulletproof security solution.

    This is a childish approach. “Security through obscurity is the best solution” will certainly not be the only happy solution against hacker attacks. But as part of a comprehensive security concept (and here I include social engineering) it definitely has a raison d’être.

    And IMHO @johndarrel is right: this discussion doesn’t have anything in common with the functionality of this plugin.
