Heh!  Sex sells...   :D

It is a compelling story, in many ways.

For instance, that's how you harden your own website -- attack it yourself.  Just don't run port scanners on shared servers, or your ASP will ban you.

Anyway, yes, hack your own site, fix the vuln, and publish it.  It's all great fun!

Don't know if I'd want to do it for a living, but to each her own...   ;)

Remember this gal, Parisa Tabriz, the computer security expert who works for Google?  Well, I wonder how she, or the members of Google's security team, will address this issue.  :-\

Look at the titles below very carefully.  Notice anything out of the ordinary?  I wonder who thought this scam up.  ::)
