Re: QED
I'd like to think so, but even those who don't have it can help recognize the signs and move others to improve.

QED
I tend to think that by the very fact of people being even every-now-and-then readers of this site, they don't have security fatigue...yet.  ;)

all of us suffer
i think we are all suffering.   we are burned-out trying to fix a problem we can do little about.

two things are needed

1. secure operating software

2. effective message authentication

these requirements can only be provided from the OEM development shops.   Until these shops are properly motivated to do things the right way burn-out will continue to get worse -- every year -- as it has recently.

if you total up the cost for all the band-aids, and staff hours required to administer same -- and then add to that the intangible cost of frustration and worry you'd come up with a pretty big number

it means nothing though as the elements responsible for the problem do not carry the cost of its consequences.

at some point, as a society, we will be forced to re-think this -- or make rather far reaching changes in the way we connect electronic equipment.

VPN as a protection
Whatever the signs are, it's good to use precautions such as using a VPN. I have been using PureVPN for ultimate privacy and protection and it works good.
