I mentioned a project HD Moore is working on called Metasploit and questioned weather he had managed to pick up any government contracts. I said in my opinion Metasploit is a script kiddie tool. I can't see any cyberstalking there.
Secondly, I said David Litchfield's research was responsible for the SQL Slammer Worm and its a perfect example of why Responsible Disclosure is needed. Again, I can't see any Cyberstalking there.
All the best,
