Recycled Truism

Strange post here presenting what they probably think is vaguely original: The worst truism in information security

“Attackers just need one vulnerability, defenders need to be perfect”

First time I saw something like this? 1984. That’s 34 years ago.
BBC – IRA bombs Brighton Hotel

The IRA has issued a statement claiming it had placed a 100lb bomb in the hotel.

The statement read: “Today we were unlucky, but remember, we only have to be lucky once; you will have to be lucky always. Give Ireland peace and there will be no war.”

I bet that type of statement is older than the hills.

Note – I’m not picking on that post or the author. He has valid points. What I am saying is this: Nothing is new.
