As strong the weakest link!

A network is "always"... as secure as its weakest link!
...& most of the times, this weakest link is an idiot network admin.

Without even breaking into any server, without sniffing anything, without trying any dictionary/brute-force attack, ***SomeOne*** got into a n/w, went through all the user-names/passwords, n/w policies, admin accts, everything... just because an idiotic "admin", had dumped his mysql database into a "world-readable" directory under his apache document-root, which nikto very easily detected!

What a "super Idiot admin"!!!

This "www-session" at 6:38 pm, is enough proof of my sayings!
