Submission + - Sex and Security

Bitt Faulk writes: "Deborah Palfrey was arrested in October for running a prostitution service. She has since put up a web site asking for legal donations. In it, she says that she is considering selling her phone logs in order to help pay for her legal fees, and has put up an expurgated one-page sample. Ignoring the fact that implying that the phone logs contain something interesting also implies that she is guilty, the log was poorly expurgated. Opening the file in a PDF editor allows anyone to remove the scratch-outs that the log was expurgated with. What does security mean when it's improperly understood?"

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
