His software isn't targeting stalking women. You can use Facebook to abuse women too if you want.
edit: according to this thread, the EFF is indeed full of shit. Sad.
He had to clarify his position stating which governments he sold exploits to and why (basically only Five Eyes).
TBH, the infosec industry is full of (vipers) people posturing, trying to protect their secret knowledge and exert control over who has what capabilities (just like traditional government spies do). The author's mistake was open sourcing his RAT and putting it on GitHub.
There is a tweet a few down in the linked thread of the author asking where he said that with no response.
Yes Sr's. In "Hack me if you can" "Hackeame si puedes"
Documentary @DarkCoderSc says that he think Darkcomet can
used for script kiddies (hackers) for spy friends and
GIRLFRIENDS for fun and not for cyberwarfare or spy.
* formatting the quote correctly
He asked "where did you saw / heard me saying “I knew DarkComet would be used for spying on girlfriends and that’s fine”?"
Does he say "an that's fine" (or equivalent) in the documentary? Or just aknowledge that it's possible?
I haven't watched the linked video but that's the answer to the question.
It is worse. Oxygen, a chemical substance, is used by highly immoral human beings, such as Kim Jong-un, to breathe, and continue living and causing havoc on the oppressed North Koreans. These immoral human beings are also eating and drinking. Cars are used to kill people as well. iFixit toolsets could also be used for this purpose. CPUs and other hardware are being used to exploit Chinese citizens via GFW and cameras. Meanwhile, evil girlfriends can abuse RATs to spy on their boyfriends as well.
Instead of these ridiculous narratives we need to look at
1) The main purpose of a tool.
2) The relative abuse of the tool, or collateral damage, and the impact of such abuse and damage.
Which is why the above examples, and OpenSSH Server as well, are each bad examples.
It is a lot more difficult, to be nuanced. I'd like to learn more about the exact software, and where it was advertised back in the days (2012 apparently). Was it legitimately used?
Oh wait, they can be used to abuse anyone.
Oh wait, everyone has a set of knives.
