Another wrong use of the pdf document
« on: June 11, 2005, 11:58:54 PM »
Please, note the incredible stupidity in the tratment of this pdf document (the case of the british hacker Gary McKinnon; is the same case of the Top Secret document who revealed the name of the USA soldier who killed our poor Italian Secret Agent Calipari in Iraq after the liberation of the Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena; also this PDF were not well protected and you can simply copy and paste the text on the notepad to see the IP number hidden under a black stripe:

Hi my friend Kamulko,

Yes sometimes one is amazed at the level of security. What a person with a brains, a browser and full google abilities could do, is almost limitless. A well trained searcher can get anythging from the net, that has been put on there once, because it has been archived, it has been copied, it has been served up. Try to get something of the net, that you have posted once, you cannot send it to electronic oblivion. No way.  You should be amazed what one could do with a GET or POST command and an automated series of weak cgi input. Take an alernative browser and a good list-dictionairy, and go to the deep net. Also see the posibilities of a program like Niktoogle, normally used for security purposes.

Have a nice weekend,

friend polonus
