News from TL.
Hi, Me (Int_13h) have been raided by eight(!) authority representants in the morning, Pc equipement seized and on hold or +- 3 weeks. Why ? Well some people whose I.Q I don't want to disclose thaught that I was implied in the making of Barok which has been created by the presumed author of the "I Love you" Worm. After 2 and a half hours of indepth discussion about Barok who went like "hey, it's called barok, it's on your site, it was made your friend spyder and it is a virus", I am back. But beware there will be NO UPDATES for the next 3 weeks as I have to wait until my PC equipement get's shipped back. I did not get them convinced about the fact that FULL Disclosure is a good thing. Who's next ? PacketStorm, Securityfocus ? Note that I have been raided by FRENCH authorities (I don't live there), limited and only limited to the fact that I had Barok avaiable for download. No lawsuits were filed though (I did and do not brake the law), so will be back for sure, except perhaps that other european authority representants do now feel inspired, anyways your welcome, BUT PLEASE ring the bell at least ! ;)
