I'm not quite tech/computer illiterate, but I'm not far off, so can anyone run me through the specifics: I think I just about know what an "exploit" is, but I'd like some more info.
Full immediate disclosure is where, when discovering a potentially dangerous security flaw, you announce it to the world along with a demonstration rather than first communicating with the software developer directly.
Naturally, vendors, especially of critical applications, don't really like this. A remote ssh or windows exploit could bring the Internet to its knees in fairly short order.
And, in general, isn't the philosophy for cracker/hackers/e-mischief makers that all information should be free and disseminated as far as possible... this seems to be the opposite of this. A change in philosophy as a whole or just a single movement?
"Information wants to be free" does not necessarily mean shouting to the world "HEY! YOUR FLY IS UNDONE!"
As for the post, I guess someone with a pet peeve managed to hack into Image shack. Elliquiy's wiki is a much smaller target : )
