I think its pathetic the way everyone has handled the whole affair. I
don't blame Cisco for anything. To see these self proclaimed hackers
goto Blackhat and Defcon is a complete joke.
Then we had the self procalimed hackers saying they would target Cisco
products and make a 0-day disclosure to give Cisco Systems Inc a black
eye for pulling their planned coordinated speech with this dude
M.Lynn. What a joke the security community is being right now.
Its a classic case of jumping on the bandwagaon. Before the summer
most hadn't given Cisco any thought, but suddenly their public enemy
I suggest that the majority of those attending these conferences are
indeed script kiddies, not hackers.
The feds held a "meet the feds" gathering at one of these conferences
They asked everyone to stand up. Those who had never accessed a system
illegaly were asked to sit down. The rest left standing, were
instantly photographed by the feds.
Would a hacker really fall for a trick like that?
