Re: Interesting comment about Garbage

I could not agree with you more Bradley, it sounds like you are not just talking about it but you have dealt with the real world. My buddy has went through the same thing you have gone through wiht a security company located in VA (he found a security bug and issues, point it out and later they walked him to the door, not because he was trying to help, but "how dare he" identify problems in our security solution. 

In addition, we identified the same problem with a security assessment at the US Dept.of Navy, they received a raving score for their security setup and implementation, but again, a friend of mine in Bethesda found issues with the network from HP OpenView scans. He reported the issues to our site in DC and we made changes based on some registry entries, easily done. But when he reported the same thing to the members in Bethesda, they asked him to shutdown the system, leave the lights on and paid him to leave the location.

There are a number of other instances, it is not really going to change anything, it has to come from the top down. It cannot be leadership covering up the truth, they have to embrace it so positive change can come. Sometimes it means bringing light to people (negative incertain instance) and their incompetence, but so be it. It is a political game but in the end, we are all better for it.
