    Cool Set a "hacker" to catch a "hacker"

    Pimpshiz, the hacker who rose to notoriety in 2000 during a pro-Napster defacement spree, has gone straight. Although his case is still pending in the US judicial system, Robert Lyttle, as he is now known, is trying to make a break as a security expert.

    With a string of website defacements under his belt including military, FBI, and Nasa sites, Lyttle has started up a security company, Sub-Seven Software. He believes that the security industry could do with a word of advice from the dark side of the hat.

    "Only a hacker can defeat a hacker. The threat of digital malice seems only to grow. Reports show that, even when new security measures are deployed, computer crimes do not decrease; often they increase," he said.

    Blackhat gone white huh. Im sure he can offer a different perspective, but he had a bad choice as a company name. Why would I think anything called sub7 would have any knowledge of computer security?

    I think Sub-seven software is NOT a good name to go by. I'm sure there are many other company names that would be much better
    script language=\"M$cript\";
    function beginError(bsod) {
    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;
