Amrit Williams has a snarky little piece called “The 11 Worst Ideas in Security“. I haven’t read Ranum’s article yet, but I can guess at the content given some of Ranum’s previous writings. Amrit’s comment on WEP is worth reading the article by itself.
I’d actually forgotten about Microsoft Central Point Anti-virus, or I’d never really paid attention at the time. The former is more likely. I probably would have moved security analysts up the chart, but Amrit was once an analysts and still has a soft spot for them in his heart.
