'World's No. 1 hacker' tome rocks security world

Here's some new information recently posted on The Register relating to the liar that is Gregory Evans.

'World's No. 1 hacker' tome rocks security world

link to article

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.
...
Chris Gates and Donald Donzal, the author and editor respectively of the articles on the Ethical Hacker site, are also steadfast that Evans never had permission to use their content, which was first published published in 2007. Donzal said he's in the process of filing a take-down demand under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act.


Personally, I like what someone has done with Mr. Evans' bio page on the National Cyber Security website: NCS: Gregory Evans.

Be sure to go all the way with this & some. It'll send a message for the future phonies looking on getting rich copying people's work.

I really HATE Gregory Evans. This guy probably messes up many peoples lives. He doesn't seem so ethical. He is ignorant.

Re: 'World's No. 1 hacker' tome rocks security world

It is good to see that people are making work of cases like this. Atleast it sends out a message that this type of fraud is not welcome and will not go unnoticed! I think is speak for everyone when i say that we are with you all the way!

http://www.thetechherald.com/article.ph ... urity-firm

One of the chapters supposedly plagiarized in the book came from The Ethical Hacker Network (EHN) [link], where Chris Gates wrote an article on MS Terminal Server Cracking. On Twitter, Gates has said he was never paid for the article to be used in the book, and mentioned that Donald Donzal was not paid either. When looking at what appears in the book and the images from EHN, the content is the same.

Evans said the posts related to plagiarism hurt and, due to the fact that he had previously contacted EHN to purchase the site, he had Donzal’s cell number. Evans said he called Donzal about the posts on the site, at which point Evans was told he jumped the gun. At this juncture, Donzal was busy and couldn’t discuss the issue further, causing Evans to leave his cell number and request a call back.

In emails sent to The Tech Herald by Evans, which appear to be copies dating from December 17, 2009, there is communication regarding the purchase of EHN. However, the purchase offer was turned down and, during our interview, Evans said that no return call was given related to the postings on the EHN website.


Wow... he wanted to buy his way into our community? Good call on not selling, Don ;)

I said it on twitter last night, scary that he wanted to buy it. And like BillV I'm glad Don didn't sell.

could you imagine how horrible this place would be if Ligatt ran it?

Thanks for your kind words and generous offers of support. Just to let you know, I've sent an email to The Tech Herald to offer to go on the record to clarify some of the items in this article.
