So the latest seems to be Mr Simon Smith, "evestigator", from Australia. Anyone else following this disaster?

Check out http://devestigator.com - also check out twitter. @e_forensic & @devestigator for the 2 main opposing sides. lots more. It seems to be picking up more and more traction lol. 

There's some debate on whether people should be calling him out/harassing him. He's clearly deranged with some sort of mental issues. On the other hand, he has successfully conned the media and others into accepting him as an expert in the field of Hacking/Security. 

Also, check out this fucking website of his - http://evestigator.com.au I mean seriously, aside from the fucking eyesore, look how much he talks about himself. switching from 1st to 3rd person at times.
Honestly i think it's a good idea to call people like that out. It serves as a sort of 'self-moderation' within the InfoSec community and at the end of the day it serves to improve the industry as a whole. Thanks for posting this, i am giving it a thorough read right after i press 'post reply'. Smile
I am self-censoring this post in favor of a user's personal request.
It was just a link to their LinkedIn which can be easily found with a Google search of their name, no problem.

Please don't bother fucking with GreySec, it's a resource hub and a strong-willed community with a mutual interest in hacking. We do not support censorship, and we believe in the freedom of speech, so this is "silly" of me to even remove this post.

I forgot the .au actually. updated.
Excuse me,
Imagine, for a second, somebody posted (and it could easily be arranged) a complete set of defamatory, misleading and deceptive lies about you, and sent it out to your family, stalked you on the Internet, sent it to your colleagues, all because you were successful, and your only crime was that you actually a) Had Qualifications and b) Had experience. There is no factual evidence and the creator of the website is being sued. Everybody that participates in the defamation engages in vicarious liability.

Is it nice to attack a person you don't know without hearing the evidence of the other side? Without a court hearing? Without that right? The site is blocked due to stalking, calls during the night and death threats.

One should never assume. Is it enjoyable hurting people? Does one think that it cannot come back?

Hey, doing some research its easy to see Muddybucket is on the registered sex offenders list.
Disgusting dirty creature. Get off the internet. Stay away from our kids.

Look if it isn't the man himself. Haha, i know you're banned, but just in case you can see this. Who the fuck do you think we are? As opposed to you the majority of people on this forum have actual skills in security. If you honestly believe you can convince us you have even the slightest ability to find out any information at all about Muddybucket. You are even more delusional than the information in this thread makes you out to be.

Perhaps you wouldn't be so fond of accusing people of being sex offenders once actual child abuse images will get into circulation with your spoofed metadata. Funny guy.

It's amusing to see you play the victim. It will be even more amusing once you become an actual victim.
It is one thing calling people out and another validating their claims to recognition. People have natural tendency for recognition as such many tend to focus on that. Unfortunately, one of the attributes includes certifications with social medium platforms fueling this ideology. Example is random forum post to boost reputation.

Some experts have been recognized by their work and others just seek for it. With forums as this, you'd only have prove your worth by what you write about. That has always been the practice in the scene and most who dwell in the trenches will see through the chartalans and call them out! Just validate them first to add some quality to the approach.

I haven't exactly followed strong opsec processes when it comes to this identity. I wouldn't be entirely shocked if he could track me down.

Well that's on you then. Still i have infinitively more respect for anyone on this forum than i do for people like Simon "I'll sue you" Smith.
