Experts, Testimony, Charlatans, & Intelligence Committee’s

with 3 comments

Recently, an allegation was made by our favourite plagiarist and wantonly frivolous filer of law suits, Greg Evans, that he was going to be testifying before Congress on Cyber Security and Sino-US relations.

I know… I can’t believe this either…

However, it is entirely possible that Evans has managed to bamboozle the US House of Representatives/Congress into believing that he is in fact an expert on anything to do with cyber security.

“How did this happen?” You ask?

Well, it is possible that they saw him on FOX news or perhaps CNN of late. Perhaps his minions finally reached out to the right people who have access to the government.. Either way, we all know within the security community a couple of things that make this all the more plausible.

  1. Evans always is pimping his “cred” with all those self released PR pieces (Worlds #1 hacker)
  2. Congress Critters aren’t all that tech savvy for the most part and are easily distracted by laser pointers on the floor.

So, we do have a potential situation if indeed Evans is not just blowing smoke up our collective asses here on Twitter.

I would hope that the House Intelligence committee would in fact vet their speakers a bit better. In an effort to insure that they at least get some perspective on Mr. Evans, I have crafted the email shown above and asked Rep. Michael Rogers (Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) to have a look into who he may in fact have planned to speak in the near future. Here is his contact information for you all out there who care to drop him a line and beg the same of him.

We live in “Interesting Times” as the Chinese say and we certainly do not need to have congress led further astray by those without the experience in the subject matters at hand. Lets hope that the House looks into Evans’ history and decides that he is not a subject matter expert on any of the topics at hand.


EDIT: It seems that Evans is not speaking/testifying at a hearing per sources connected to the HPSCI. However, Evans may be speaking to individual congress critters, so, still email the HPSCI to get the message out to them. They then in turn can locate who may be in fact meeting with Evans.. If indeed there is any meeting at all.

They say that imitation is a form of flattery, but what is outright copying & pasting of original content and pretending its your own? That’s called PLAGIARISM and its WRONG Mr Steven Lentz CISSP. As you can see from the picture directly below, this is a blog post that I ALLOWED InfosecIsland to publish because they ASKED me to.

My post


What YOU did as can be seen below, is SCRAPED the content, REMOVED MY NAME and all ATTRIBUTION as to where you purloined the content and posted it as YOUR OWN! This I am pretty sure is AGAINST CISSP CODE OF CONDUCT.


How is it that you or anyone else today feels the need to steal others content and publish it as their own? Trust me, with Google and other means we can tell who is linking what and who is scraping our content for their own! YOU Sir, have crossed the line and you KNOW IT.

ISC as well as have recieved letters about this and the OTHER content that you have PLAGIARISED.

Following CJR’s Cue on Plagiarists

with 2 comments

Following Chris John Riley’s lead, I thought I would also make a comment or two.. Or.. Oh Hell, how about a whole rant on the subject?

So, here I go.

Lately, my blog has become more popular with folks through my affiliation with Infosecisland. Since all of this new found interest in my lunatic ravings, I have noticed that some sites ahem, who’s owners have certain histories with the issue of content theft have been scraping MY content as well either from the aforementioned infosecisland site, or even my own dingy little spot on the internets.

Now, as of today, post filing 6 DMCA violation letters to someone’s Internet provider, I have seen ‘some’ of my content come down. Of course I believe that it was really the efforts of infosecisland and their legal team that really made things happen. That said, the last couple of days have shown true and epic irony on the part of said plagiarist copying content that was clearly negative towards him… Wait, what am I saying.. The Rothke article was all ABOUT him! Yet, he still just scraped the content and put it happily on his own page.


It just goes to show you that someone is not paying attention to what and from whom they are thieving from.

Meanwhile, there are others who I only recently have found doing the same thing… And now, I turn my attentions to you Elyssa.

DMCA’s coming your way via blogspot soon!


Oh, and I truly would love to see this post scraped and on those sites! The LULZ will be epic.
