0x0F. 2012 - Called out on slashdot for his text file manager's extremely poor performance (11 minutes to sort 1.8 million strings). Ironically claims he "chose" Pascal because it performs better than C++. Pasted Python but failed to indent lines, indicating he did not understand even the basics of Python.
0x10. 2014 - Zontar schooled him, doxed him, caught him in several other lies. People chimed in on Slashdot to say they hated him.
0x11. 2014-2015 - Bouldin repeatedly explained why OS hosts files are not suitable security against botnets, but Kowalrus didn't understand the technical aspects. Currently seems very confused about basic networking and how malware works. Doesn't understand basic Python, and believes the hosts file cannot be bypassed even after seeing Python code that does the bypassing. When provided proof that malware with millions of infections (Ramnit, Gameover Zeus) can bypass the hosts file (and other OS protection mechanisms), he called the malware "edge cases."
0x12. Still has not accomplished anything since his long-since-deleted "security guide" from 2007 or his text file manager from 2010. Nevertheless, he declares victory over everyone, on every forum he has ever visited. Has no friends.
