So Confident, but SO WRONG!


Watch NextGenHacker101 explain what the command tracert does.

On Windows, he runs the command:
tracert    google.com

He pronounces the command: “tracer T”, calls the colon a “dot dot”. Incredibly, he concludes that there are (only) 10 people looking at the Google.com website at the moment, and that he can see their IP addresses!

This of course, is not what the command, trace route does.

He is so confident of himself. But so incredibly wrong! It’s another example of the Dunning Kruger Effect.

Do you know anyone like this? How would you evaluate the quality of the systems that they produce?
