The quieter you become the more you can hear.

As the first ticket on this IT security related blog, I would like you to think about this quote from Mr Baba Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher from Boston, USA.

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear" is a general assumption that could very well be applied to the field of IT related security.

Think twice about it:
- wireless hackers who put their cards in monitoring mode to check for network characteristics, and then perform an appropriate attack
- information stealing malware which create an https tunnel to send found information while the common firewall will think of a legitimate web browsing
