"Less than you think. The bad guys are going to optimize their attack strategy as best they can. As defenders, we can do a better or worse job securing ourselves. Doing a better job publicly is more secure than doing a worse job in secret. Think about it. Would you rather have door locks that a burglar can break with ease, or strong door locks that the burglar knows are harder to break? As prey, do you care if the fox knows how you decide to stay or flee? Not really. What you want is to make the best possible security trade-offs."
