On Valentines Day of this year I posted an entry I called Shattering the crystal and poking holes in the black box in which I discussed open vs closed security. I followed that up in April with some more information on what some other people were saying about Open Source vs. Closed Source Security. I had some interesting discussions in my comments in both of my posts; there was a lot of polarity around the subject. Well over the weekend it seems John posted a great article entitled Open Source Security: Still a Myth . He has the same views that I have on the subject. And his article is a great read. He sums up point for point what I have been saying for years. In the end it doesn't matter if open source systems tend to be more secure than proprietary systems, because on the whole they aren't yet coming close to being "secure enough." I highly suggest you check out his article!...
