Agreed, especially (to be annoying ion the use of another analogy as bad
as they are for this purpose) as "rattling a doorknob" is unlikely to
cause a house to collapse (or cause other damage), whereas doing a
vulnerability scan of a system MAY cause damage (intended or not).

I think the many analogies that have been posted demonstrate that
network security and the security/safety of one's family in their home
actually aren't in the least bit analogous.

Best,

Seems to me port scanning is neither picking a lock or seeing a door
hanging wide open but more like rattling a door to see if it is
unlocked. I don't know about you, but if someone comes by my house and

rattles the door to check whether or not it's locked I'm going to
assume he has bad intentions whether he does or not and he'll need to
be prepared for my response.

This is a good thread which begs further discussion.

I guess the crudest part of my question is, was Mathias picking a
lock, or did he see a door hanging wide open?
And at what point is someone going through an open door versus looking

in a window versus admiring someone's architecture from the street?
