He sent a copy to you too? My condolences. He comes up with the most
"interesting" conclusions sometimes.
If this turns out to be the person who hacked your web site, I would
like a cash reward.
"46. > lol xD"
Should we read into this too much?
You just did, Andrew. There's 2 possibilities. Either it's a frikkin *SMILEY*,
or I'm actually a Microsoft hacker that goes by the name 'XP Vista'. Hint - in a few
places, we find the string 'xD xD'. Do you sign your name Andrew Andrew? No?
Then which is more likely, it's 2 smileys in a row, or the person's tag twice
in a row?
Last email I have from him is 23rd December... same kind of grammar as
the Stratfor pastebin.
This is *so* amusing, coming from the person who's *still* threatening legal
action against me for suggesting "n3td3v" to Neal Krawetz, which resulted in
a nice presentation at Black Hat on linguistic analysis. At least Neal actually
measured percentages of words and syllable lengths and tenses and stuff
like that. ;)
It seems he disappeared just as the Stratfor news broke just before
Andrew? Hate to break it to you, but a lot of people go on actual multi-week
vacations around Christmastime. Heck, something like 57% of the entire population
of the town I live in left around Dec 16, and won't be back till next week. The streets
are deserted. Maybe one of those 20,000 people is the *real* hacker and left
just before the news broke, not on Christmas vacation?
lol XP XP
