Can You Ever Trust A Hacker? UBS Trial Puts It To A Test
http://www.informationweek.com/security/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=190400435

An interesting article to be sure, but the beef that the defense has with Karl Kasper's testimony is pretty much a straw man. Sure, Kasper works under the name "John Tan" and has been a member of the l0pht. Neither of those facts are show-stoppers when it comes to his credentials.

If anything, trying to discredit Kasper's bona fides on those counts is like trying to dismiss Ehrich Weiss's work in debunking fraud "psychics" simply because his regular job was as an illusionist and he operated under the name of Harry Houdini.
