The Internet is the greatest communication enabler the world has ever known. Its power has been harnessed for research, education, commerce, and unfortunately illicit activities. Hacktivists are seemingly infiltrating companies and governmental bodies at will. Governments appear to be sponsoring extraterritorial hacking to steal intellectual property in an effort to gain a competitive advantage. With the rise of the sun, a software security flaw discovered in Singapore may become proof of concept exploit code in Delhi. Before the software vendor and its customers can react a “security group” in Berlin has published to the world, exploit code, which your average 11-year-old can utilize to gain full access to a system.
