Kinda disturbed by an article I just read. #infosec #rant

As most of you know I live on the defense side of infosec. As attack vectors are exposed, I study them to learn how to design systems that can defend against them. There are some biggies, sql injection, cross site scripting, insider threat and encrypted data leaking that burn a lot of my time.

I just read an article giving a detailed technical description on how to use randomized proxy chains to avoid detection. And by using proxies in different countries, it makes it difficult to find out who did the attack. Now of course this article said this should only be used for white hat pen testing and you should not use this for any illegal purposes.

Make no mistake, articles like this are not helping the good guys secure systems. You are only helping the bad guys.
