An anonymous reader writes "SecurityFocus published an interview with Marcus Ranum, the inventor of the proxy firewall. It's an interesting reading, and the end is even better:
Truly, the only people who deserve a complete helping of blame are the
hackers. Let's not forget that they're the ones doing this to us. They're the
ones who are annoying an entire planet. They're the ones who are costing us
billions of dollars a year to secure our systems against them. They're the
ones who place their desire for fun ahead of everyone on earth's desire for
peace and the right to privacy."
