I saw a post on slashdot about that a swiss company that is setting up a site to auction cracks and security exploits.
Quite how cracked brained the iduviduals are behind the scheme are i dont know offering a marketplace for hacks is an insane idea. AS i said on slash dot.
Offer money for doing bad things and people will do bad things
- its an open invitation for extortion both by insiders and outsiders
- it will increase the number of hacks and not lead to an improvement in security as the idiots behind this think – don’t they know any thing about human nature for fraks sake.
- various organizations with three-letter acronyms are going get a little intense about this.
- I can see a big company buying a crack and inviting there mates from the FBI,DSG along for the ride when they hand over the dosh.
I was reminded of the Monty Python sketch where some gormless mobsters tried to shake down the British Army down.
I think WabiSabiLabi needs to get back on the special needs bus – to borrow a line from Johathon Ross.
