I worked for a contract shop in Florida, and more than once used "hack" tools to get a job done. Occasionally the rules of engagement get you in a bind and you have to work outside those rules to get your job done. We had a source control machine that crashed, dead, inoperable with quite a bit of source code that we needed to retrieve. Without hack tools, etc, we wouldn't have been able to get the data back out by playing the role of script kiddies and using hack s/w to make the drive accessible. A tool is a tool. Without those tools in particular, my company would have had to face a serious financial set back. mike
