Roger Smith's curator insight, April 13, 10:58 PM

Interesting article - this is why script kiddies are such a dangerous part of the digital world.   They are the vanguard, the scouts, than find out that you can be compromised well before the heavy hitters get involved


“Why would you want to waste your best people, your best techniques, and your most secret sauce on a target that may not be worth because they have no security whatsoever? They actually start always very low with common capabilities, not even Zero Days, and only if they don’t succeed will they elevate their tradecraft.”
