Comment obscurity (Score 2, Insightful) 375

security by obscurity is still one of the best ways to keep yourself secure. whether it be macintoshes, or just leaving your house's spare key in a really good hiding spot, obscurity is one of the oldest security features around.

obviously, what you need is an obscure anti virus app that's also really protective (as in put your spare key in a safe and hide it).

of course problem with that is that if an antivirus product works well, it doesn't stay obscure for long.

man i'm really stating the obvious here. i'm done now.
