    This discussion reminded me of a quote from "Michael Sinz" :

    "Programming is like sex, one mistake and you have to support it for the
    rest of your life."

    Probably the same can be said for blindly using hacking/pentesting tools
    against clients ! Be intelligent and do a lot of RTFM before using these
    tools against anyone. :-) <<happy hacking>>
