Security quotes of the week

The problem isn't passwords. The problem is people - people writing website code that makes it fairly trivial to get the list of people's passwords, and the people who fall for the social engineering tricks that means they give their password to someone they shouldn't.
It's like the programmers who work to get the computer to make better guesses at what people mean, instead of what they say - instead of society as a whole working to get people to actually mean what they say so that decent communication can take place.
