Last summer when I wrote “Vicious orchestrated assault on MacBook wireless researchers”, it set off a long chain of heated debated and blogs. I had hoped to release the information on who orchestrated the vicious assault but threats of lawsuits and a spineless company that refused to defend itself meant I couldn’t disclose the details. Well a lot has changed since then and researcher David Maynor is no longer working for SecureWorks and he’s finally given me permission to publish the details.
Apple is a mega corporation that nearly smashed the reputation of two individuals with bogus claims of fraud. It didn’t matter they weren’t the one’s pulling the trigger because they were pulling all the strings. David Chartier should be ashamed of himself and his blog. Jim Dalrymple of Macworld and his colleagues that jumped on the bandwagon should be ashamed of their reporting. Frank Hayes was the only one of Dalrymple’s colleagues that had the decency and honor to apologize. Most of all, shame on Apple.
