A recently published e-book penned by the self-proclaimed “world’s No. 1
hacker” is rocking the security community with back-and-forth allegations of
plagiarism, racism, and even threats against a security podcaster and his family.
How to Become the World’s No. 1 Hacker is purportedly written by Gregory D.
Evans, an animated felon who went on to become CEO of Ligatt Security
International, a publicly traded company worth about 0.0002 cent per share that
bills itself as a full-service computer security firm. Released by the obscure
Cyber Crime Media publishing house, the
342-page PDF is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide for consumers who want
to learn how to harden their networks against attackers. Unix security, Wi-Fi
cracking, and web service configuration are all covered.
