A great Murphy’s law site on the Net:
All murphy’s laws, but I want to focus on computers… and specifically Cybersecurity
Compiled the 6 of them on my top10…
First the only “security” mentions
* Law of Anti-security
The best way past a pesky security feature is a 13-year-old.
* Lulled into Security Law
A ‘debugged’ program that crashes will wipe out source files on storage devices when there is the least available backup.
we can change the first one
* The best way past a pesky security feature is a Chinese hacker
Then the classics for computers:
* If a program is useful, it will have to be changed.
Could be changed to
* If Security is effective on a computer it will be changed
Or this one:
* Any given program will expand to fill all the available memory.
how about this?
* Network traffic will fill the available bandwidth (hackers scans and DDOS)
The subtlest bugs cause the greatest damage and problems.
Corollary – A subtle bug will modify storage thereby masquerading as some other problem.
The Corollary can be changed to :
A subtle hacker will modify your system while masquerading as a legitimate program
How about this one?
* Still backing up your files? ask the NSA for restore when your restore fails
