I don't know... That right there shows to me that Schneier is dubious about Gibson's claims that XP's raw sockets are the end all be all of the problems he's seeing. Granted, he did say that the analysis, etc., in Gibson's article is good, so I'll give you that. Schneier also isn't the type to flame someone for being wrong.
If you want something more recent, how about the fact that he was totally wrong about what Metasploit does.
I'm not saying Gibson is perfect, But he's nowhere near as bad as these guys are making him out to be.
The Guy isn't the fucking be all and end all of computer security, and I never even implied that he was - literally all I am saying here is that he's not as bad as he's being made out to be by these pricks. That's it and fuck all else. If you're going to provide actual hard evidence of exactly what they're claiming - Ie, that he's essentially the satan of computing - feel free, if you're just going to link to more bollocks, Just don't bother, for fuck's sake.
My issue with him is that he claims to be the be all and end all of security.

Now what kind of evidence would satisfy you that he is not the security expert he claims to be?
I apologize for any misunderstanding. I had assumed that you still thought his claim as to being a security expert was valid. If you feel that he's just a decent guy who knows a fair bit about tech and a little about security (but who is not an expert) who likes to puff up his own ego (with help from his friends and fans) about security, I can agree to that.
I do admit some of the claims against him are full of hyperbole, but that's just the style of the folks who make the claims against him. Can't say I agree with the style, but many of them did bring up valid points.
Oh, and I'm still angry at him over his XP raw socket bullcrap, but that's neither here nor there (and easily rectified by installing winpcap).

I have to ask: why? What has changed in the last 10 years to make this work when it didnÃ¢Â€Â™t in, say, 1999, when many other related systems (including one of my own) were causing similar excitement? Or in the 20 years since the wave before that, in 1990?As far as I can see, nothing.
At any one time, in a privacy preserving way, it would in theory be possible to know who was in the UK.
I basically stop reading. That is laughably easy to take apart.
Tracking users while preserving privacy? How pray is this done?

Marketing pseudo-article. Likely untrue.
Marketing pseudo-article. Likely untrue.Can you write a bit more about this subject?
There's no evidence that anything of the sort is happening, and a lot of jumps to make it seem like it's prevalent in the article.
Apparently the bitcoin market crashed. That's all I need to say about that.
I wish there was some bookie that was taking bets a year ago on whether or not Bitcoin would succeed or fail.
