we should legalize hackback

Should we allow companies to use their offensive security skills to fight back or should companies be careful what they wish for (since the hacker is the more skilled at hacking afterall)?

Hello G:

Attacking is NOT defense.. It's OFFENSE.. They're NOT the same thing.. They're NOT even close..

Not all companies are hackable. I opt for technology that works. When you attack, you expose yourself.. What you leave can be traced back to you. I'd rather operate in stealth mode.. You can't hack me if you can't FIND me.

However, in terms of LEGALIZING it, I didn't know it was ILLEGAL.. Within the bounds of the law, companies should do whatever they have to do to protect their data.. If it's attacking the hackers, then I say go for it.

I think its not realistic.

Its like trying to outsmart someone who's smarter than you.

Hello again, g:

Companies are NOT created equal.. SOME avoid being hacked, and SOME don't.. That's not by chance.. It's because some companies are just better at technology than others..

We shouldn't have global systems. Why do we need the Chinese and Russians on the same net as us? They can get their own.

You should hack yourself (this is not a joke). Think of it like this:

The best liar is automatically going to be in the top 4% of humans at spotting lies.

The best spotter of lies is not at all necessarily better at lying than most, given that they may panic more and have other moral and emotional flaws that disable them to pull it off.

Change lie, to hack and apply it to your company. White hat hackers exist, hire them.
