Active Defense: The New Digital Wild West Justice

June 19, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

This will just get out of hand and incredibly stupid. Sure, you can say that you are just going to maybe tarpit those attackers to prevent them from getting in quickly, but, you have to know that there will be (already are) services where blackhat types will hack back against those who “dun you wrong”...

We Don’t Need Cyber-Vigilante Justice

June 15, 2012 Added by:Andy Willingham

You see what made me so mad? It wasn’t the release of the PII of all those innocent people, it was their reason for doing it. They reported a web site vulnerability and it wasn’t fixed, so they decided to post PII of thousands of people on the internet. Who put them in the role of deciding who wins and who loses?

Patriot Hackers: Stand YOUR Ground - Not Mine

April 16, 2012 Added by:Ali-Reza Anghaie

Let’s not replicate the sins of our Governments. Let’s not aggravate the problems Governments face. I don't disregard the threats radicalization online brings. I'm suggesting Cyber Vigilantism is not a movement we want to support by throwing our Western weight behind it...

Moralizing, Anonymous, and Digital Vigilantism

October 30, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

It would seem that Anonymous, Antisec, and LulzSec have already decided to take up the mantle of vigilante’s already. However, the targets have been, for the most part, varied parties that could be seen as hapless victims or as malefactors, it all depends on the point of view really...
