the problem with stealth

from very demotivational

stealth: it's all fun and games until someone loses a jeep.

although the disappearance of the army vehicle probably had more to do with theft, the punchline underscores something that actually can be a problem in computer security. when you try to use stealth, when you try to hide things from people, even if it's for a good cause it can still end badly. you may think you're keeping something important out of harm's way by hiding it from unsophisticated users, but things should never be hidden from administrators.
