Cosmo, the Hacker ‘God’ Who Fell to Earth

Following up from the Epic Hack, here’s an interesting piece about the guy who supposedly pioneered some of the new social engineering hacks.

I wonder how much of everything else Cosmo has told me is true. The only thing I am certain of is that online security is an illusion. But I think he is being honest now. I think he’s genuinely remorseful and just wants all these gaping account holes, many of which he found or helped publicize, closed at last before anyone else has their identity stolen, or the SWAT team sent to their door. That’s what I believe, at least.
