Security Pro Pleads Guilty to USC Breach
So this guy finds a SQL injection attack, verifies it, reports it and gets charged with computer hacking. Not the first time this has happened. But kind of a stark reminder.
I think people who find and publicize vulnerabilities in software products do much more damage.
This so-called researcher (the USC hacker, not Moore), embarrassed the university so they took him down. In the article it says he is responsible for paying back $38k worth of damage.
Wow!
