v3nt3d is deeply sad at the new trend of morally accepted blackmail by
researchers, known better as a web application security awareness day.
sincere researchers are coming forward more frequently to threaten companies
with a web application security awareness day.
because they are known to be sincere they are morally left off the hook from
what is known by v3nt3d to be straight forward blackmail.
blackmail is illegal, for this reason v3nt3d wishes to make the following
web application security awareness day campaigns are blackmail on the
part of the researcher, all should be outlawed by government.
v3nt3d calls on the government to make it highly illegal and morally
unacceptable to threaten a web application security awareness day for a
vendor and its customers
security researchers think its "fun" but all it amounts to is blackmail
all blackmail attempts shouldn't be dressed up as harmless fun
governments need to wake up and swiftly arrest those making web
application security awareness day claims in the future
corporations and its consumers shouldn't be scared mongered and
threatened by individuals
researchers shouldn't use their real name or real place of employment and
expect exclusion from legal action against blackmail
researchers shouldn't be allowed to profit or gain career opportunities
by such claims to action by the researcher
researchers should be taken into custody, questioned and have their
hardware obtained for forensic analysis before a web application security
awareness day is due to start
individuals threatening to carry out a web application security
awareness day shouldn't be labelled as "security researchers" by the media
and security experts
such individuals should be clearly labelled as "criminals", "malicious
attackers" and "blackhats", no matter what other "friendly" or "useful"
research they've carried out in the past.
