Wait, where did we bury the mines again / was it the red wire or the blue one to disarm the bomb?

'Chaff Bugs' makes for novelty reading but does it actually work in practice? Maybe... But the thing that hits home about software dev after decades of trial & error, is that things have become so multi-faceted / stacked / tiered / complex, that its easy to miss obvious holes elsewhere.

Who will have the last laugh? Hackers / malware writers seem to be winning all the battles right now... Or is it more the result of years of corporation's underfunding IT / underpaying tech workers?!
