On the legal uncertainty surrounding security education in France

An excellent read, by Cédric Blancher of EADS (in French sorry, automated translation to English here).

Basically it discusses a highly subject to interpretation French law that criminalizes informing people about dangers in Information Technology, and has me pulling my hair out to find interesting yet completely inoffensive stuff to tell you on Information Security...

All I can say is: remember the "I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?" joke? Yeah, the victims won't be the security people.
