[PEN-TEST] Implications for "Looking around?" [FBI confiscation of allegely curious student]
From: DA Smith <deb () sandstorm net>

This has been posted to Slashdot and I saw one very good comment on
Nanog about this.  It bothers me, on the PEN-TEST level as many of us
started out by simply looking around.  And, from reading posts here
and on Bug-Traq, still do.  (The person in question details exactly
what he did).

"FBI confiscates computers of "curious" RPI student in aftermath
of the yankees.com hack: Sounds like Operation Sundevil all over
again (that one having gone down under SS direction):" from the Nanog
post.

It also reminds me of Steve Jackson's problems a few years ago.

(Of course it's soley my opinion, and no one else's whom I may work
for or associate with, etc.  Sheesh. Who's opinion could it be?)
