“Unix Terrorist” in trouble over TJX ?

Reading time Less than a minute

Anyone who was around for Defcon-10 will have an opinion on the infamous Gobbles-Silvio-UnixTerrorist talk in which mail spools where published and everyone was slammed [1]

According to mumble on the Interwebs (and a comment from RiskyBusiness) it appears as if the Stephen Watt who allegedly “modified and provided a “sniffer” program used by the conspirators to monitor and capture the data crossing corporate computer networks” == Unix Terrorist..

It’s not clear the extent of Watts involvment with the breakin, but it does send a cold shiver down the spine of anyone who puts out tools / software..


[1.] for me it just hurt seeing Silvio trying to make a real point while UT was trying to make a few jokes..
