If you don't read the comments for this blog you missed the best response of the year, attached to my earlier story on rootkit.com. T. Arthur points out the irony of a Hacking Exposed author pointing the finger at rootkit.com. Apparently Hacking Exposed is "the best selling computer security book ever, with more than 500,000 copies sold."
Does that mean Stu and friends created half a million more threats? Are they responsible for all the script kiddies running attacks they learned about in HE? If you follow McAfee's logic, the answer is yes. If you follow mine, the answer is no.
