It's the idea of 'the ultimate hack' that makes the article good. I mean, just thinking about the possibilities of pwning the entire internet and transferring billions into secret bank accounts.

kaminsky was actually a really stand-up guy for the way he tried to handle this imo. ptacek, on the other hand, made himself and his company look like a gang of pompous twits. at the time I was thinking this sucks for dan, no good deed goes unpunished, but hey look who's in wired magazine while the blog at matasano chargen is 404 (kinda like their vaporware app heyo)
