Hey, I've just thought of a great ATM hacking scam!
Threaten to disclose the vulnerabilities publicly, get paid hush money to go away (hey, I've been bribed, not 'threatened'), then rinse and repeat as necessary.
After the first bucket of hush money, what are they going to do? Call my bluff, and switch to lawsuits, or keep paying every time I have a talk scheduled?
For bonus point, I'd pretend that I'd never even meant to give the vulnerability talk. Dumb Dutchies must have been high when I told them what I was going to present.
I mean, that's what *I'd* do, but then *I'm* a loathesome unethical parasite. I'm *sure* that's Chiesa is *nothing* like that, and his bizarre explanations for the much threatened but never given disclosure are all true, *especially* the crazy sounding and contradictory ones.
