I second that. I remember my first contact with BT and my shock when I started to fully comprehend just the vast amount of improper or weak security measures implemented and relied upon everywhere around us. Everything from WEP encrypted wireless networks, improperly configured PHP servers and firewalls, use of unpatched and exploitable programs, hardly at all restricted guest accounts at public computers or the ability to boot of a CD… I could go on all day and peoples lack of knowledge about, and even complete ignorance of, computer security really is rather scary.
I can't agree with lonewolf enough. The first step is to accept that you don't know everything but you know more than most. I can say this with confidence as the masses aren't aware that Backtrack exists.
