This back-and-forth with Josh Abrams and every single irrelevant half-wit that attaches to him appears to be winding down (thank God), now that we’ve effectively debunked every single one of his bold-faced lies and talking points several times over. However, I was recently contacted by a group calling themselves “November One4”, who informed me they had been having some “fun” with Josh Abrams and his creepy, toy-loving, masked 41-year old buddy “Bill Daddo” AKA Seth Thurston of Albuquerque, NM who won’t stop threatening to “expose” me because he feels we “doxxed” him (whatever that means.) They identified themselves as what’s called “grey hat hackers”, which according to Wikipedia means:
“A grey hat (greyhat or gray hat) is a computer hacker or computer security expert who may sometimes violate laws or typical ethical standards, but does not have the malicious intent typical of a black hat hacker.
The term began to be used in the late 1990s, derived from the concepts of “white hat” and “black hat” hackers. When a white hat hacker discovers a vulnerability, they will exploit it only with permission and not divulge its existence until it has been fixed, whereas the black hat will illegally exploit it and/or tell others how to do so. The grey hat will neither illegally exploit it, nor tell others how to do so.
A further difference among these types of hacker lies in their methods of discovering vulnerabilities. The white hat breaks into systems and networks at the request of their employer or with explicit permission for the purpose of determining how secure it is against hackers, whereas the black hat will break into any system or network in order to uncover sensitive information and for personal gain. The grey hat generally has the skills and intent of the white hat but will break into any system or network without permission.
According to one definition of a grey-hat hacker, when they discover a vulnerability, instead of telling the vendor how the exploit works, they may offer to repair it for a small fee. When one successfully gains illegal access to a system or network, they may suggest to the system administrator that one of their friends be hired to fix the problem; however, this practice has been declining due to the increasing willingness of businesses to prosecute. Another definition of Grey hat maintains that Grey hat hackers only arguably violate the law in an effort to research and improve security: legality being set according to the particular ramifications of any hacks they participate in.
In the search engine optimization (SEO) community, grey hat hackers are those who manipulate web sites’ search engine rankings using improper or unethical means but that are not considered search engine spam.“
They told me they’d be dropping a “nuclear bomb” on both Seth and Josh….and today I was sent a video that left me with the strangest feeling of amusement, shock, awe and some terror I have experienced in quite some time. These guys/girls are obviously not the ones you want to f*ck with. I know I don’t. I’m just glad that in this instance they have appeared to take our side. Enjoy.
