The Wheels of Justice Turn Slowly - But Exceedingly Fine

January 09, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

LIGATT (a.k.a. Greg Evans) is about to find out that once again the US government has said: “Hey, whatever happened to all that money he owes us?” Well that day has come and I do hope the government, being in such dire straights, comes after our little charlatan with both barrels...

The Nature of Infosec: A Zero Sum Game

December 08, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Security is a “Zero Sum Game” - no matter what you do, no matter how many policies you have or blinking lights on an appliance that is alleged to keep out APT, in the end you really have not won the day. In fact, if you have not been hacked or abused that day, it was really just a fluke...

Experts, Charlatans, and the Intelligence Committee

October 14, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

We live in “Interesting Times” as the Chinese say, and we certainly do not need to have Congress led further astray by those without experience in the subject matters at hand. Lets hope that the House looks into Evans’ history and decides he is not an expert on any of the topics at hand...

Plagiarism and the State of Infosec Publishing

August 16, 2011 Added by:Tony Campbell

Book publishers need to up their game in terms of their quality assurance processes in order to demonstrate their true worth to their customers, something that the charlatans, such as Gregory Evans and Ali Jahangiri, will always fail to deliver upon – since these guys are not publishers...

Faux Security: BlackBerg Security and Shades of Project Viglio

July 13, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Personally, I had never heard of Joe Black until he started tweeting his craziness. Over time though, he just progressively got crazier and crazier with comments and challenges to the likes of LulzSec, who then allegedly hacked him and showed him just how poor his site security was...

Lessons from LIGATT

July 10, 2011 Added by:Ben Rothke

It is the common opinion of industry experts that Evans and his company have little real knowledge beyond pedestrian hacking techniques found in plagiarized books and beginner hacking texts. LIGATT offers products that are simply bloated version of common tools such as ping and nmap...

The Pastebin posting appears to be from an email sent by Evans on June 5th to a staff member instructing them to produce the LulzSec investigation press release that Evans claims was fraudulent, and to distribute the release through outlets the company does not normally use...

World's Greatest Hacker Sanctioned in World's Worst Lawsuit

April 13, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"If Evans wants to be considered a credible source of information or technical security, he needs to actually work at getting certifications and accrue respect through solid work within the community. Until he does this, he will always have critics that will call him a charlatan..."

Black Hats, White Hats, and LIGATT Security

February 07, 2011 Added by:Sam Bowne

I remain convinced that the world of infosec is really polarized. The "white hats" help protect society, obey the law, and can be trusted; while the "black hats" lie, steal, extort, hurt people, and cannot be trusted. There are exceptions, but that model describes the most common situations...
