Kevin Mitnick has had a long life of ups and downs. He was hunted and jailed by the FBI for his hacking antics. Up until recently I would have considered him to be a trusted white hat hacker. His Mitnick Security company specialized in Pen testing. Now Kevin will be selling Zero-Day Exploits. This is a sad day.

The video below covers much of the Kevin story.\

Late last week, Mitnick revealed a new branch of his security consultancy business he calls Mitnick’s Absolute Zero Day Exploit Exchange. Since its quiet inception six months ago, he says the service has offered to sell corporate and government clients high-end “zero-day” exploits, hacking tools that take advantage of secret bugs in software for which no patch yet exists. Mitnick says he’s offering exploits developed both by his own in-house researchers and by outside hackers, guaranteed to be exclusive and priced at no less than $100,000 each, including his own fee.

    This disapoints you ?
    If the establishment is allowed to dictate what can and can’t be done with the internet then it will go the way of TV to just an advertising mess.

    Presently there is a war going on between hackers and government which the government will win unfortunately unless people like Mintnick and Snowden and Assange and many many noble others can do something to slow their onslaught.

    The government has the upper hand because they can legislate to force compliance . It will be sites like yours that publicise the hackers’ endeavors that will help .

    I hope you don’t fall into the wowsers group who criticise without really thinking it through.

    Good for him. I hope he makes millions and keeps the undernet going strong for decades to come!

    I remember everyone supporting this douche when he was on the run. Now he has turned into a government sellout.

  3. Tony Says:

    I think Ty Tower needs to read the article again to figure out who benefits from Kevin Mitnick’s latest idea.

    (Hint: it ain’t you)

  4. Ty Tower Says:

    Mike -I can assure you someone put in jail by a government will remember them for life. He won’t be doing them any favours unless there is a worthwhile bonus for him.
    Tony – Who benefits is Mitnick and why not ?.If I could help I would for a reward.Wouldn’t you?
    His exploitation of weaknesses only serves to strengthen the net in the long run. Every other B* is in there looking out for themselves as all of us are.
