You cannot reuse creative commons works in a commercial publication without citing the author properly. This is textbook plagiarism, and I'm politely talking to the author to get the IBM citing removed and replaced with OWASP or something in the arena.

So I'm already taking this on. It's a polite discussion I'll keep you posted.

PS: IBM told the author this was all their research, I think there was just a communication issue.
