If any software can contain security vulnerabilities, then hacking tools that are designed to exploit those holes too are at risk of being hacked.
At the Defcon hackers conference in Las Vegas, the Shmoo Group issued a warning to hackers that planned to compete in a wardriving event where hackers attempt to get onto a wireless network.
Kismet, a popular tool for detecting and entering wireless networks, contains several security holes, the group warned.
"Patch management is not just for users anymore," a member of Shmoo said according to a Cnet blog posting.
Now if only the hackers would focus on hacking their peers, that would solve a big problem for the rest of the world.
