Hello everyone,

My name is Ewa Dudzic, I have been the chief editor of Hakin9 for the last 15 years. I would like to make a statement concerning the article which you are mentioning in this post. First of all I would like sincerely apologize to everyone of you and all our readers for what has happened. I have to admit that it was the unintentional mistake on our part. It should not have been published but for some reasons, which we are currently investigating internally, it was published causing as I can see a lot of negative opinions. Mentioning that I would like to thank you for all your reactions. As negative as they sound I humbly accept them and take full responsibility for that mistake on our part. I can only wish that this hopefully one-time error will not undermine the general perception of Hakin9 as professional magazine offering the highest standard possible. I would also like to kindly ask you not to pass the judgment on authors collaborating with us (who devote their professionalism and heart to the content of each issue) basing on this example. I can assure you we will investigate the matter to prevent such "accidents" in the future. If you have any other questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me via email: ewa.dudzic@hakin9.org

No idea if that is actually Ewa Dudzic, but this post is similar to past responses to previous hakin9 spam. All useless in stopping them. She also appears to no longer be listed as their chief editor on their website.

Also - hakin9 has only been around for 7 years, not 15. Sigh.

Hakin9 as professional magazine ... well, you have to know somethin, a donkey will never be a stallion :)
