Our “ethical hackers”

This has to be embarrassing. My company hires two ethical hackers (yes, this is what they sold themselves as), who after two days of the network group refusing to add them to the deprecated “white list,” decide it’s in their best interest to escalate the issue to management.

Seemly the fact the site they are targeting is open to the internet already, and there is no concept of a white list, through them off. The fact they are considered hackers and never tried to hit the site has to be encouraging.
