Re: makes sense
I appreciate Nate's nuanced and relevant comment. Not every server is multi-tenant, and mitigating sidechannel attacks has significant costs. He didn't say what you claim or in the way you claim it. I will reply from my own experience managing Internet-facing sites.
What exactly does "managing" systems in your opinion mean? I take it to mean that you had nothing to do with firewalls, antivirus, OS and application updates, would I be wrong in this assessment?
What an odd statement. Firewalls and antivirus servers are designed to survive in hostile environments. I've managed a few of these and never saw one compromised. "OS and application updates" is very broad and shouldn't be lumped in with security appliances.
I ask as there have been lots of emails attacks of all kinds over the last 20 years going to all IPs with any email ports open and if you never noticed any of these then...[insults]
Sure, that's Internet Background Radiation. SMTP is some of the less interesting stuff we see. What do you find remarkable about it?
whilst you do not believe that security is something you need to worry about and then when you admit that you have been oblivious to the security problems everyone else has seen for 20 years then I am not going to take your opinion on security very seriously, sorry even if you are running NIX then there have still been enough security issues for you to know that they exists in reality
You grasped the wrong end of the stick. Read again for comprehension. And consider how much we might care whether an anonymous person with incoherent ideas about Internet security will "take [our] opinion very seriously."
