Episode 41: Dumpster Diving with HD Moore

It’s not everyday you get the chance to chat with a courageous genius like HD Moore. In this episode, we talk about HD’s youth spent dumpster diving for computer parts and how those early days tinkering and building influenced the creation of Metasploit and what HD is up to now with Rumble. We talk about Project Sonar and all of the legal ramifications and threats that came as a result of that project. We also talk about an interesting paper he wrote in 2010 about monetizing Metaspoit and all of the hoops he had to jump through in that adventure. He’s really been one of the courageous architects of what the security industry has become. You can find him @HDMoore on Twitter and @hdm on github. Check out the videocast!
