Sarah,

I trust your good intentions and I think the problem was from @AppSecUSA and not from @OWASP.

I think we should have someone more responsible running the @AppSecUSA. This is a major error in judgement and it's not the first time.

I also changed the password to @OWASP and shut down all connections to third party apps. I'll get the password to you very soon.

Aloha,
Jim

LivingSocial is an OWASP sponsor and provides the OWASP Northern Virginia chapter with a physical location for chapter meetings. And even if they were not sponsors, OWASP should never be trying to call our or shame folks who get hacked. It's trashy at best.

They generously give my chapter an awesome space to use every month, and Mike McCabe (promoted to Ken's job after he came to work for me) serves on the NoVa chapter board with me. I have no clue who posted that, but that's a good way to get a solid sponsor to say fuck you to us.
