Both on Twitter and in the comments of this blog have I seen the sentiment, “I hope DEFCON hack these locks.”
I swear these people do more harm than good.
Yes, thete is value in a security company hiring hackers to test their products.
Having hobbiest hackers hacking stuff and then putting videos online, I think does more harm than good.
Everything comes at a price. The more secure something is, the more that security will cost. Everyone has to decide what security they will accept at the price they’re willing to pay.
Perfection is the enemy of good enough.
Putting tips and tricks to compromise security systems online only puts at risk people who can’t afford the highest levels of security as the knowledge of how to hack it goes from esoteric to ubiquitous.
I don’t need DEFCON assholes figuring out how to open every Liberty safe and then posting that where every petty thief can find it.
Liberty or S&G might react by fixing that, but it puts the millions of people who already own Libery safes at risk.
