Comedian John Oliver has recorded a classic rant about net neutrality. Here’s my favorite quote:
The cable companies have figured out the great truth of America: If you want to do something evil, put it inside something boring.
Apple could put the entire text of Mein Kampf inside the iTunes User Agreement and you’d just go “Uh, Agree, Agree, Agree, whatev-, Agree, Agree.
Oliver’s statement has obvious security implications: social engineering attacks can succeed by boring the administrators and security people with lots of apparently pointless false alarms. Then they slip in an attack that causes the same pointless alarm.
