What if the hack was requested by the tester for the sake of defence from
real attack? That what white-hats are for. My sites came under attack by
Windows-based hijacked machines at the beginning of the month. Those
zombies requested what could have been 50 GB of generated on-the-fly pages
in just 1 day. Had I been more familiar with Linux firewalls, I would have
swatted them at a much earlier stage and not after 2 weeks of a
gradually-increasing attack pace. I also would not have served as a 'human
filter' for 2 consecutive days. I couldn't do any work, so it was costly.
...But I agree with the responder who said that it's not free labour and
should hence be paid for...
