Re: No thanks

There is way too much politics in most of Infosec today and working on the most interesting parts like IoT and Industrial Systems/SCADA security can get you anything from a stop-n-search at the airport all the way to an extradition order.... Voland's right hand

The flip side of that COIN is one can immediately become a life long fiat currency billionaire whenever one uncovers/discovers/invents an almighty bug/virus/trojan which crushes and crashes All SCADA Systems Administration Defences.

And that payment/virtual wealth transfer can also easily be earned and realised with a simple agreement to Status Quo State Clients not share and develop the attack vector further with right dodgy sector leaders and SMARTR Readers.

And that is a price cheap to pay, given the cost which can be wrought developing shared attack vectors against which there are no defences.
