He brings up some interesting points, and in a roundabout (and long winded, but like I can talk) dispels many of the common myths and misunderstandings of Bitcoins...

... but for the most part the entire article is "swing and a miss".

After reading I see that the guy has points. I know that JSON-RPC on port 8332 sometimes segfaults with malformed queries. Of course JSON-RPC is disabled by default and binds to loopback when enabled, so I disagree with the blogger, when he says that the port 8332 is the biggest threat. But if JSON-RPC interface can segfault, who can guarantee that the interface on port 8333 is written properly.

Amusing.  So the blogger can view public information on public websites (yet not even get my name right).

Jeff Garzik, bitcoin core dev team and BitPay engineer; opinions are my own, not my employer.
