David Litchfield talks about the SQL Worm in the Washington Post



Hi,

The following quote from David Litchfield appeared in a front-page
article in today's Washington Post:

   http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A57550-2003Jan28.html

   "You have this ideal vision of doing something 
   for the greater good," said David Litchfield, 
   managing director of Next Generation Security 
   Software Ltd. of London, who acknowledged that 
   a small bit of his code might have been used in 
   the attack. "I will probably no longer publish such code." 

Perhaps David can put together a longer message for Bugtraq and
Full-Disclosure on his changing views of publishing proof-of-concept
code for security vulnerabilities.
