At the end of the PDF there's this statement that sums things up nicely:


That's all it takes to take down a company and stop their human rights abuses. That's the beauty and asymmetry of hacking: with 100 hours of work, one person can undo years of work by a multi-million dollar company. Hacking gives the underdog a chance to fight and win. Hacking guides often end with a disclaimer: this information is for educational purposes only, be an ethical hacker, don't attack systems you don't have permission to, etc. I'll say the same, but with a more rebellious conception of "ethical" hacking. Leaking documents, expropriating money from banks, and working to secure the computers of ordinary people is ethical hacking. However, most people that call themselves "ethical hackers" just work to secure those who pay their high consulting fees, who are often those most deserving to be hacked.




I got the link in a comment posted elsewhere by one of the people who was key in getting all the Parler data when that site fucked up its security. They were cheap bastards and used a free demo version that was cancelled so it left the site wide-open for a few hours, which was enough.
