The world of IT Sneakery can be a dangerous one sometimes. A sinister and murky land where paranoia reigns and no one is safe. There are certain people you do not want to cross, especially in the realm of cyber security, where the line between good and evil is constantly shifting.
Alright, maybe it’s not quite that nefarious. Although, according to the Guardian newspaper, it could be.

No, not really; if only IT security actually was that exciting.
