Defcon: Poking holes in hacking tools

The Shmoo Group started off Defcon on Friday wanting to make a point. Presenting in a tent packed with hackers on the grounds of the Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas, group members announced that they had found holes in several popular hacking tools.

"Patch management is not just for users anymore," a group member proclaimed. "The general point is setting an example." And that example would be that those who create the hacking tools, should worry about security like any software maker. "
