Care to say what your references are, what your complaints are of his views on security


Gibson's reputation among actual security professionals is shoddy at best and a joke, or even fraud, at worst.

Funny, because Mark Russinovich was on a recent episode of Security Now as a guest to talk about a sci-fi book he wrote, so apparently Mark must get in contact with Steve and not think he's a total joke like that blog post would like you to believe... and that article specifically mentions Mark as one of the greats to look up to. Ironic.
