Ex-hacker and alleged "war crimes collaborator" Adrian Lamo has garnered a
great deal of attention lately from his role in outing Wikileaks leaker Bradley
Manning, a young U.S. Military official who was leaking sensitive documents,
including some which Lamo believed endangered national security.
We conducted an extensive interview with Lamo in which he carefully detailed
his motives in the Manning case. Since that interview we’ve kept in close touch
with Lamo and were interested when he contacted concerning the recent harvest of
iPad 3G emails/ICC-IDs by security analysts at Goatse Security. As Lamo is much
more qualified to analyze such security issues than us (our staff certainly
hasn’t conducted exploits as epic as Lamo’s, nor do we have enough time to
devote to properly reading security mailing lists), we contacted him promptly
for an interview.
