Gregory Evan’s Blog Sites Are Ripping Contents from Infosec Blogs

 

Gregory Evans "World's No.1 Hacker"

The self-proclaimed “World’s No.1 Hacker” Gregory Evans has proved to the world how a douche bag he really is. Aside from being the world’s no.1 pawned hacker, he is also using a plugin in his blog sites like amihackerproof.com, hitechcrimesolutions.com, nationalcybersecurity.com, locatepc.net, gregorydevans.com, etc. to rip off contents from other Information Security Blogs like our blog. In fact he also copied my article about his blog’s pawnage.

The guy claims he is the world’s no.1 hacker yet he is just a plagiarist and charlatan and if you want to know more about his bio visit Security Errata.

I have been monitoring the pingbacks made by his blogs since he started ripping off the contents of our community blog and now it’s time to put his name in our wall of shame. His blogs link back to our original articles but Evans is actually doing copyright violation. The guy should be stopped because from what I have seen from his blog, he was ripping a lot of blogs that have contents like Information Security, Cyber Warfare, IT, Hacking, etc.

      If a guy rips off all the content of your certain article even though it has a link back to you, that is still a copyright violation as what I have learned from Security Errata and DMCA.

          Now that sound too apathetic if that is the case. If it is a word for word and image for image that is too much and that the funny part is that one of my paragraph is linked to my blog. It is ok to link back and quote a a portion as long as you don’t get all the contents.

          1. Ok. I’m apathetic. I don’t mind if someone posts something I’ve written verbatim as long as proper attribution is made. I like sharing my thoughts so I don’t really mind.

            I haven’t really seen the actual posts so I can’t tell and I don’t know what license you use for the posts you’ve made.

            And this text is really small.

            First of all, sorry if the text are small…

            Yeah it’s ok for you but it’s not okay if guys from metasploit are telling you that dude, evans is ripping of your content. You know what I mean?

            Isn’t it a slap on the face if the whole content of your article is posted on the blog.. Try to check Evan’s website. He even copied the content of this article.

          3. I’ve seen the post now and it’s pretty funny.

            No, I don’t get what you mean. How does being told by someone from Metasploit make it not okay? So if nobody from Metasploit told you about the incident then that would make it okay? From the looks of that page, it seemed like an aggregator. Question: if it was someone you looked up to and not this Evans, who you have a preconceived bias against, would you still complain about it? Or would you feel honored?

            When it comes to code, if you don’t mention a license, it defaults to a regular copyright which belongs to you. If I’m not mistaken, then it should be the same to blog posts.

            Alright, I may have been too exaggerated about the Metasploit dudes telling me about the stolen post but for me it was really not okay, because a lot of people tweeted about it. I can’t explain more why I have that feeling but our guys from The Projectx had enough dealing with it. About your question that if someone stole our post who we looked up on to, I will still complain because there is no honor on it. An infosec blog then just ripped of? Sounds ironical isn’t it. I mean it’s also our fault because if we were that smart, we should have added an .htacess setting that prevents hot linking on our image.

            “When it comes to code, if you don’t mention a license, it defaults to a regular copyright which belongs to you. If I’m not mistaken, then it should be the same to blog posts.” >> In this case it’s different because it is word for word and img for img. Evans is using wp-robots to steal contents from other infosec blog. But we do have a DMCA protection in our host so I think that should also tell the story why it is a copyright violation..

    I was saying that you MIGHT have a copyright already since you said you don’t own a copyright for the article.

    “About your question that if someone stole our post who we looked up on to, I will still complain because there is no honor on it. An infosec blog then just ripped of? Sounds ironical isn’t it. ”

    If I was in your shoes right now, it would be okay. Considering that there was still a link acknowledging the origin of the post. But that’s just me.
