And in fact, "threat propagation" in a v6 world may actually
be worse than expected, and naiveté may actually contribute to
a larger-scale attack, given the statistical possibility of
potentially more victims.
naivete because folks believe the 'v6 is more secure' propoganda? or
some other reason?
Address space size, and proximity, may well be red herrings in
can you expand on this some?
Someone else mentioned "self-infliction" in this thread, and that's
Over the course of the past year or more, we've seen less & less
"scanning & self-propagating" malware, and more & more self-infliction,
either by being duped via social engineering or just by drive-by
As it stands, now -- and unless the pendulum swings the other way --
the whole "...v6 address space is larger, thus it is much harder to
scan and thus propagation of worms is much harder..." train of thought
is completely misguided.
