I'm pretty sure nobody here originally came up with that.

This sparked my curiosity and Google revealed this. I never noticed that phrase before when i've visited the site or that pdf file.

Regardless, its a good motto. Exploiting purely code is more ethical in a sense, generally more difficult, and tends to be lots more elegant as well.

That being said, most major hacks include some form of social engineering or another, but for purely intellectual purposes, I think exploiting computers and code is about a hundred times more satisfying. Sending swarms of infected PDFs to unsuspecting offices is just... eh, boring.
