Steve Gibson is somewhat of a "" charlatan. In some professional security circles, he is not considereda reputable security professional, rather more of a snake oil salesman peddling third-rate software with bold claims. While manyof his claims are a bit outlandish or bold, few, if any, are demonstrably false. However, when asked to speak onsecurity topics, Gibson is getting adept at putting his foot in his mouth. A single amusing quote may be laughable,but a series of them begin to paint a picture of someone who doesn't really understand security. Rather, he seemsto know enough buzzwords and ideas to be dangerous to his clients.

Steve Gibson is the founder, CEO, Chief Cook & Bottle Washer of Gibson Research Corporation, located in Southern California. The bills are paid by the sales of Steve's long-standing hard disk data recovery utility: SpinRite. GRC's website mostly reflects Steve's life-long passion for all-things-technology, and more recently, Internet Security. He began programming early computers in 1970, at the age of 15, and he never stopped. Steve believes in "old School" computing, so he writes all of his many freely available Internet security utilities in 100% pure assembly language... and they're going to have to rip Windows XP (yes, XP) out of his cold dead hands!

      • Funny how the best people I’ve ever seen create anything decent online (never10, spinrite, shieldsup, a.m.o.) always have some jealous unknown freak spouting nonsensical out-of-context stories about him/her on some weird poor-man’s blog. So, you couldn’t even buy and manage your own domain name for this? I’m sorry to have to say it, but as another IT worker with 30+ years experience, paid server admin and infosec auditor, crypto analyst and allround techie, I must say you have no idea how wrong you are and how useful and trustworthy Steve Gibson has been and still is. The guy is one of my very few heroes in the computer world. You did not manage to make any valid arguments in your post here. Nice try though.

    While there is more than one Gibson guitar, and more than one person named Steve Gibson playing them, one and only one Steve Gibson seems to have made all the records. The latter expression describes a tally of all the records featuring country session picker Steve Gibson, but anyone gazing upon this discography would be forgiven for thinking it is actually every record ever made. Putting aside that obvious exaggeration, what remains at hand is the aural residue of activity beginning in the mid-'70s with performers such as B.J. Thomas and Dave Loggins and continuing for decade after decade with a total theoretically based on the maximum number of jobs that could be fit into a six-day week, presuming Gibson took Sundays off.

    A great deal of the material is country & western coming straight out of the Nashville sound. It would be fair to say that the Nashville sound is, indeed, Steve Gibson and other players of his of ilk. Whether he is tearing off twangy honky tonk licks on a Johnny Rodriguez side or providing a set of rhythmic stab marks on an acoustic box for Dolly Parton, this performer has proven remarkably adept at keeping up with commercial trends. Many of rock's most demanding maestros, including at least two Neils, Neil Diamond and Neil Young, have brought Gibson in on recording sessions. The most suitable word to describe the guitarist's aesthetic slant seems to be "available." He is there on a provocative early Guy Clark session, he is there for yet another set of England Dan & John Ford Coley singsong, He runs with Eddie Rabbit, wrinkles with George Strait and most likely agrees with the title of a Ray Stevens album that he of course plays on: I Never Made a Record I Didn't Like. There is only one person breaking this guitarist's lock on Steve Gibson guitar credits. The Steve Gibson who played with the R&B combo the Five Red Tops is a different fellow who was hauling his guitar case to gigs and sessions when the Nashville picker was still in grade school. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, Rovi
