Spooky Intelligence Servers as a Service

If I write a program to exploit something and it is traced back to me, I,ve broken the law at least twice; at home for providing a hacking tool, and two, the law of the targets home state. That is, unless I have diplomatic immunity - by being a spy, my only protection.

Choose your customers wisely; or pay the price. ........ YetAnotherJoeBlow
