maximillianos, sure we are reading, so are the hackers and automated bots writers and coders, I have written few security scripts BUT made sure no one wrote them the way I did, it's not like I don't want to share, it's if I share I have to write the whole thing differently all over again. Some Code Breakers and Reverse engineers are some of the most successful software engineers in the world today.
Many had to cut their teeth and learn hands on their dirty trade illegally this way, learn how to break webmasters and sysadmins defenses. They end up with a well sought after expertise, then EITHER work for government/private security firms officially in a legal manner (some are employed to do covert operations with the backing of the law for intelligence requirements etc) OR work for themselves in illegal consultancy work or plain private and highly sensitive info and data brokers....
Brave of you to share, though I know it's not a high risk knowledge, nonetheless that can be added to those people's list of "methods to be aware of" when coding their bots and scamware etc.
