Yesterday, I saw something really weird (for my standards) on the twitter one of my personally favorite security researchers who asked for information about me. Well, it’s kind of scary that everyone wants desperately to know “who is xorl“. To clarify, you probably don’t know me and never heard of me before, I have never been on IRC (apart from some channels with no more than 5 people which I know really well or I’m friend with in real life, always Greeks in both cases), I’m just some common guy who is interested in security and has no affiliations (at least no direct ones) with either the underground scene or the security industry, thus no allies or enemies. At last, if these are not enough for you, just email me directly instead of asking random people or friends of mine wherever you see them (IRC, forums, in real life etc.). Sorry for this useless post but it seems like this gorlist‘s idea (this blog was his idea) has gained some totally unexpected attention which I couldn’t even imagine when publishing the first post.
My apologies to people that don’t understand what I’m talking about in this post.
