Cyber Security firm hacked

Black & Berg, security "experts" issued a 10 thousand dollar challenge to anyone that could hack their home page:

http://www.blackbergsecurity.us/

just in case the hack gets fixed before you guys can see it:

LulzSec is really making a name for themselves, that's for sure.

Heh... amateurs. Seems like a pretty small-time outfit. The domain has only been registered for a little over a year, and is registered to a residential address in Omaha Nebraska. The only mention of them on Wikipedia is on the Lulz Security page... :lol:

Nothing screams institutional confidence like a .us TLD

I'm with JBI. Color me unimpressed.

If Google Street View is to be believed, the Black and Berg domain name is registered to this location. :D

Edit: On their web site, Mr. Black also lists one of his credentials as "US Citizen with the ability to obtain a Security Clearance". He doesn't say he *has* a Security Clearance, or even that he's *previously* held one; just that he can (allegedly) *get* one.

Oooh. So he's a US citizen. With no felony convictions or ties to known terrorist groups.

More impressive by the minute!

Shodan background is serious street cred. Less so is a degree from ITT.
