What a bitch-fest that article is.  Commercial programmers don't know jack
about security, either.  Maybe one in a thousand will have a professional
come in and have a look.  At least when you're doing it open you know you're
working in front of a window.  I don't know how many times I've seen
insecure commercial code written with the excuse that nobody will guess
where the hole is.
