There seems to be a persistent pattern on this list that results in
the real scriptkids such as Steve "HellnBak" Manzuik, Charles "Core"
Stevenson, Ron DuFresne, and Nuno Fernandes calling people -- people
who are obviously magnitudes above them in skill level -- "script
kids". It's obvious that the aforementioned people are scriptkids
because, being some of the most vocal whitehats on this list,
you'd expect to see some contributions in the form of code or tools
housed on their websites or attributed to their names. But when you
see their blank websites (Manzuik), their fundamental grasp of
a computer architecture that nobody really cares about (Stevenson),
their posts concerning firewalls and Internet "attack vectors"
(DuFresne), and their half-assed security blog servers containing
nothing of value except vulnerabilities that a 4 year old could
exploit (Fernandes), the old "pot calling the kettle black" scenario
immediately springs to mind.
In fact, it's not just on this list, it's everywhere. We're sick and
tired of seeing the "scriptkid" label planted on anyone who's actually
out there doing real hacking. It seems to be the primary form of
character assassination and denigration used by the security industry
to defend their pride -- pride which is obviously at gunpoint when
you have these talented individuals making a point of their dumb asses.
We suggest careful study of the following textfiles:
