Within months, some helpful person invested their time into generating a cracker tool. Publicizing the threat was a service to everyone, but I leave it as an exercise for readers to determine what satisfaction is obtained by the authors of tools that turn threat into reality and lay waste to millions of dollars of investments.

I appreciate the joy of success, and the pain of defeat. Hacking is really about learning a technology to a level of understanding that most people can’t reach, and then using that level of understanding in new and interesting ways.
I’m not really into hacking for sushi. I’d much rather hack it for the challenge of doing so. Once I have hacked it, I often become bored with it and move on to something else. This may explain why a lot of the tools I’ve written are not adequately maintained.
I’ve decided that Linux is my only OS love. Windows is too frustrating. OSX is painfully slow to navigate and operate.
I have a bachelor of science degree in information technology from Johnson & Wales University in Providence RI. I started as a marketing student, but I realized quickly that marketing is the overly complex process of labeling large groups of people. I switched to technology, and never looked back. I had wonderful instructors, who believed in me and showed me that I could make a positive impact in the world using computer science. I’ll be forever grateful to them.
I work with a team of wonderfully talented people at Counter Hack doing security consulting and research. I’m very fortunate to work with industry luminaries such as Ed Skoudis, Tim Medin, Tom Hessman, Jeff McJunkin, and Lynn Schifano!
