Insecurity Through Obscurity

Comic Transcript

ALICE: I can’t believe you deleted all those records without even asking us first!

PHIL: I’m not the one who was storing sensitive financial data in an old closet without telling anyone.

ALICE: It was a SECRET. “Security through obscurity” isn’t very effective if you point it out to people.

PHIL: You didn’t have to tell everyone. But I should have known about it.

ALICE: Phil, who was the guy who accidentally emailed one of our most proprietary pieces of intellectual property to a college friend, causing pirated versions of it to be passed all across the internet?

PHIL: That’s not the point!

(Silence)

MARK: That was Phil, right?

PHIL: That’s not the POINT!
