2. Run unhardened applications
3. Use one admin account, everywhere
4. Open lots of holes in the firewall
5. Allow unrestricted internal traffic
6. Allow all outbound traffic
7. Don’t harden servers
8. Reuse your passwords
9. Use high-level service accounts, in multiple places
10. Assume everything is OK

Go ahead, make my day!
