GameSpy & DMCA Follow-up

A post to the GameSpy Forums by GameSpy chairman Mark Surfas offers their official response to the report from earlier today of security issues and their response (story). The post outlines their side of how contact with the researcher unfolded, saying: "He was doing more than reporting bugs; he was publishing game pirating techniques. He published how to attack our network. This is not the way ethical security researchers operate." Here's a bit more: "When we were first contacted, this person was associated with a small software security company. They asked if GameSpy wanted to pay a 'consulting fee' to fix the hacks. However, these were not bugs; it was information about how our products work. When we brought this to the software security company's attention, they disavowed their relationship with that person and removed him from their servers."

More bull pours from the venomous mouth of yet another CEO.

At least his bull is not killing innocent people like the Firestone and Tobacco company CEO's.

Time to close my GameSpy/FilePlanet Account. I was never happy with their service anyway.
