    Thats pretty damning. I wonder if PA got mad and sued the employer to make him take it down.

    Tough to say what happened, was familiar with Craig via the nifty "Top Talkers" script he wrote some time ago that was mentioned in my book. The resulting LinkedIn discussion thread referencing the now-404ed blog entry is still there at https://www.linkedin.com/in/craigdod...tivity/shares/. You may need to be signed into Linkedin to see it though...

    Palo Alto Networks' website as a whole is pretty iffy. While not that level of bad, you can edit their downloads page to request files other than the ones you are allowed to download, and they'll happily hand them to you. All you need is the name of the file you want. As an example, software images for their devices follow a predictable naming scheme, so it's easy to get software for devices you don't have under contract.

    I find companies which show that lack of care in one place on their site often show it in others.
