World's Most Successful Ethical Hacker Available for Comment on Recent Outburst of Hacks

Jim Stickley, CTO of TraceSecurity, Uncovers Security Vulnerabilities by Hacking into Customer Networks

BATON ROUGE, LA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Ethical hacker Jim Stickley is available this week for comment on the recent outbreak of hacks and data breaches that have hit companies such as Sega Corp., Citigroup Inc., Sony, Google Inc. and Lockheed Martin. Stickley and the TraceSecurity team of security analysts have conducted tens of thousands of sanctioned hacks on customer networks, demonstrating security vulnerabilities.

"The attacks this month demonstrate both an amusing prankster attitude that hackers have shown, while underscoring the potential threat that exists against U.S. businesses, as well as the U.S. infrastructure and economy," said Jim Stickley, CTO, TraceSecurity. "New forms of attack, geared more towards employees rather than home users, underscore the changing landscape of the cyber attack. Criminals are realizing that attacking the home user one at a time is much less efficient than attacking a corporation directly. This is the future of hacking."
