Is this the sort of 'fake news' Facebook is looking to crack down on?
"to help penetration testers" LOL.
Seems to me it is to drum up money for security dudes by creating widely available tools that create the environment necessary for hiring them.
If the objective was to enhance security on the web these so-called testing tools would leave behind some sort of serial number or indelible trace that would lead to the registered purchaser of the 'testing' product.
That is the thing with fake news, genuine media outlets become full of it because so often reporters and journalists either start to personally identify with sources.
