    Looks like she’s a Scorpion Software employee (www.scorpionsoft.com/blog/) and I suspect her “benefit” quote is a thinko given the all the rest of it talks about “danger”.

    Mind you, the quote:

    “Remember that scanning hosts that you don’t own or have permission to should be frowned upon.”

    is also rather amusing.. 🙂

    I had no idea she was at MSFT. We used to chat on IRC regularly.

    That is a great quote, though. It really, really is.
