There is SOOOO Much on the internet about him. You should read about it. It reminds me of that movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and the checks. He's kinda the computer hacker version of all that.
And yeah, over all I think the Exposer has good intentions. Here is one of the things the exposer has said:
"What it really does is, quite forcefully, makes sites upgrade their security. They know they can't open again, following the same practices. Plus, we don't do any damage besides having access to information.
At the maximum, I make a news post, to alert the members of the site, that is it. I told the owner of Grophland how I compromised his site, and even told him, upon his inquiry, of a preferred encryption algorithm to use."
So yeah the guy/girl (I keep feeling anti female here because I just keep calling the exposer a guy and I don't really know if they are or not lol) intentions are good. I've seen their messages on here as the pop up. Even though they are deleted and removed pretty quickly. It seems like they made a lot of effort to try to get people to pay attention and they have been really ignored. So they just stepped it up pulled out the information that they warned them was so readily available and posted it for their users to see.
I totally agree btw. I hate that he's posting usernames and passwords even though it's only like 20. I don't agree with it at all. I had heard mystical equine was given more than a week though? As an owner of a site if someone told you they could easily and swiftly take all of your logins,passwords, and e-mails wouldn't you take the site down completely until you could fix it?
I'm thinking this guy/girl isn't a genius. I'm thinking they are just one of those teens who have learned a couple exploits or something and decided to go robin hood. If that's the case then it seems pretty good they are getting there first because at least they aren't trying to use the info maliciously. If they can do it... someone else could easily go in without ANYONE knowing and try to use all of those e-mails passwords and logins... again maybe get bank info and things of that sort through the e-mails if the passwords are the same.
