Just a while back while trying to answer some queries for the undergrad security class I teach (actually TA) I was pointed towards a series of comments and a discussion in one of the closed but very popular programmer community, Something very interesting was going on there.

On 27 December, security researcher Victor Gevers came across a MongoDB server that was open to external connections and that lacked a password on its admin account. He also tweeted about it here

And someone in the community just posted that his account was hacked by "0xDUDE", or Victor Gevers....and he even went to twitter to ask him why he had erased his DB. From the related Tweet Trail what I could get was the person didn't even see what was in the post, what he posted or the real threat report. He just blindly thought he was hacked. And it was hilarious to see the twitter conversation, the reactions in the programmer community and even my student. And then somebody just told me "wow he is a GDG member, that must be a pathetic GDG".

This got me interested and I clicked on his profile, and realized I had quite a few mutual friends with him and....all mozillians. Now a became a little cautious and did a google search with his name and realized he is indeed a mozillian and one who actually goes to Engineering Colleges and "teaches" and mentors about technical topics(including the topic this post is about). open source all this representing Mozilla...

This got me thinking. Are we really so desperate to attract and build community? #mozilla
