On the heels of my amazing discovery of the “PC Mesh Hide Files and Folders“:http://blog.nerdbucket.com/articles/2007/01/15/revolutionary-new-software software, I make yet another Awesome Software Discovery: “jcap”:http://www.archreality.com/jcap/!
Spammers, beware! As long as we have people like Arch Reality working on our side, your days are numbered!
…or are they?
This one blows my mind. PC Mesh has a pretty crappy concept, but these folks really take the cake! Arch Reality’s only saving grace is the disclaimer that came over a year after jcap’s release:
***NOTICE (01.10.2006): The developer assumes no liability with this resource and it is provided as is. This script is referred to as a “security development” because it can provide some minimal level of security. While it does seem to be an effective elementary form of security the developer does not claim that it is an impenetrable solution and thus the developer does not recommend implementing it for the protection of highly sensitive data.
I’ve done a small amount of digging, and sadly there are people out there who use this product, and think it provides some measure of security. This kind of ignorance is so easily avoided if the people who write software would spend the half hour to research the actual problem they’re trying to solve.
If I can reach just one person, and that person keeps from hiring these horribly untalented hacks, I’ll feel this blog post was more than worthwhile.
