  2. If a bad guy can persuade you to run his program on your computer, it's not your computer anymore
  3. If a bad guy can alter the operating system on your computer, it's not your computer anymore
  4. If a bad guy has unrestricted physical access to your computer, it's not your computer anymore
  5. If you allow a bad guy to upload programs to your website, it's not your website any more
  6. A computer is only as secure as the administrator is trustworthy
  7. Absolute anonymity isn't practical, in real life or on the Web
  8. Nuke it from orbit.
