Security By Obscurity Won't Work

It's naive to think that hiding things from prying eyes doesn't buy some amount of time. Let's face it, some of the biggest exploits unveiled in software have been obscured for years. But obscuring information is very different from protecting it. You are relying on the premise that no one will stumble onto your obfuscation. This strategy doesn't work in the long term and has no guarantee of working in the short term.
