Jones Withstands Defense Attorneys

I've been covering cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Duronio trial in which my friend Keith Jones is testifying as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 government's star forensic witness. Today's story describes how Keith explained his findings while being attacked by defense attorneys. This excerpt is priceless:

At one point, [defense attoryney] Adams laid out a scenario in which someone could have created a backdoor in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 UBS system, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n deleted it before a backup was done to capture it. When he asked Jones if he, personally, could do such a thing, Jones replied, "I could do a lot of things. That's why I'm hired to do cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 investigation."

Bamm! Nice response Jones.

It has been crucial to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 prosecution's case that Jones is not a self-proclaimed "hacker." This report shows how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 defense pursued Karl Kasper, aka "John Tan," ex-@Stake, ex-L0pht "hacker," for signing official documents as "John Tan" instead of using his real name. UBS hired @Stake to perform forensics before bringing Foundstone onto cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 case, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365reby getting Keith involved.

All cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wanna-be hacker kiddies should remember that grown-ups don't trust cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opinions of "hackers" in courts of law.

Incidentally, I don't think Keith is a CISSP; at least he is not listed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization's member directory.

Update: Keith told me he is a CISSP. He must be a stealth one like me.

I just want to thank you for your continued notes on this event and on Keith Jones. This is giving people like me a chance to see a part of security and information investigation that is not always covered or talked about much.

I totally agree. This is a great opportunity to see how forensics experts should behave in a real lawsuit.
