Soooo many ethical questions here: about how to treat foreigners who have been arrested, about questioning suspects, about racism, and of course about hacking.
This was just another FBI “Success” at bringing in a terribly dangerous fugitive.
Only this time they didn’t have to con someone into buying fake bombs.
As I have stated over at TOP… when the response to trying to help is getting arrested or sued by corporations fuck it. Cover your tracks and sell it on the dark net.
Keep in mind that what Hutchins is getting tried for is not what he’s considered a hero for. He’s a hero for killing WannaCry; he got arrested for Kronos.
Oh I am aware. He got picked up not long after fixing WannaCry for his past misdoings.
Mostly just make sure when you do something like that use a burner laptop and public wifi, etc. Anonymize as much as fucking possible.
