Another one got bought today, it's all over the Wall Street. "Teenager Floated A Big Secuirty Company ", "Hacker Paid After Ethical Hacking Of A Bank...". Damn kids. They're all money whores.

But did you, in your C Grade Economics Degree and l4am3 technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of this professional hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him whored, what forces lured him, what may have sold him? I am a professional hacker, look at my bank account...

Mine is a world that begins with money... I'm richer than most of the other kids, this crap they buy is so darn cheap... Damn underachiever. They're all money whores.

I'm a junior security consultant. I've listened to senior security professionals about how to be a good hacker. I spit at it. "No, Mr.NiceGuy-CISSP CISA CEH, I didn't show my 0day. I sold it..." Damn kid. Probably leeched it. They're all money whores.

I made a discovery today. I found a Venture Capitalist. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, he doesnt notice because, he is lame. He doesn't understand a crap of security, but he is blinded by that greenish tinge of money. He says it's the real thing, biotech was a fluke. I do BlaBlaBla and he is cashing in on it. Damn kid. All he does is techno babble. They're all money whores.

And then it happened... a door opened to a world...rushing through the phone line like money through ATM wires, an electronic account transfer is done, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... I sold the code.

"This is it... this is where I belong..." I can buy everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I can buy you all... Damn professional hacker. Tying up the server again with his DDos bots. They're all money whores...

You bet your ESOPs we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed security certifications when we hungered for real stuff ... the bits of meat that you gave was old seminar crap, for which you charged $500. We've been dominated by, or taken over by these so called security gurus. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those poor few are like money in their accounts.

This is our world now... the world of the security and hoopla, the beauty of the moolah. We make use of a service already existing without licensing for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us money whores. We sell what you already sold.. and you call us money whores.

Yes, I am a professional hacker. My crime is that of greed. My crime is that of cashing in on this security hype. My crime is that of outsourcing you, something that you will never re-pay me for.

I am a professional hacker, and this is my manifesto* [(c) Please read EULA for further details]. You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all ... after all, we're all are money whores.
