As I say, security by obscurity is a bit better than no security at all,
because it stops the less determinate enemies, and eventually diverts them
to easier prey.

Anyone administrating some box attached to the 'net should be a bit
paranoid, and for the paranoid, security by obscurity is never good enough.
Anyone really determinated to invade exactly _your_ box can evade any
