MOAB “researchers” install backdoor, complain about leak – nice!

4-pack redbull – $ 7.99

Domino’s anything goes pizza deal $9.99

I’m a jackass t-shirts $24.99

Single handily setting the respectability of security research back about 10 years – priceless!

So not only is MOAB a bust but apparently the “researchers” did some maliciousness and then complain when it leaked – (here) – wow the arrogance is astonishing!

  1. Not that I’m necessarily condoning anything here, but I think you may have missed the exact order. It’s easy to do, the writeup wasn’t exactly clear. I had to read it a few times.

    -Some people were hitting the web server of the MOAB guys, going after the predictable URL for the next day’s vuln.
    -The MOAB guys decide to give them what they want, and hand over the bug early, with the back door.
    -The back door IDs the people who were trying to get the bug early

    I don’t think anyone who waited for the normal release was given the backdoor.
