Raul remembers: "On the funny side, I remember a penetration test where we got access to one of the target Unix servers, we found it was previously compromised. The attacker had established it as his basement repository for warez (illegal software) and movies. As soon as we notified the customer about the findings, the first thing he did was to request us a copy of all the movies before proceeding to delete them."
