Perhaps there's something wrong with me...

Ok... so UNDOUBTEDLY there is something wrong with me, but I found this to be particularly funny:

CyberLover.ru, a site out of Russia, is selling a "hot, sexy" chatbot that they claim can trick unsuspecting men into divulging personal information, using any of 10 different personalities.  They claim that their bot is so realistic that it can get victims to hand over phone numbers, addresses, photos, and more.

For years now, I've suspected that several of the ISC Handlers, who I know only via our Sooper Sekret Online Chat Room, are actually cunningly crafted perl scripts-- now I have some circumstantial evidence supporting that theory. 

So.... the next time the Handler's chat starts getting all "frisky," I'm keeping my credit card numbers to myself...

I've often wondered if Ed Skoudis is real... ;-)
