This Chet Uber/Project Vigilant thing is pretty odd.
I'll posit 'apocryphal' and 'media-whorism'/busybody/state-sycophant as my own top few adjectives.
Somebody should fully dox this little Chet turd and post on 4chan : )
PS: I don't think that anyone need fear "Project Vigilant" - other than some amateurs are claiming
to have access to raw ISP traffic.
is pretty funny too.

Oh yeah, regarding such things like:
"He [Uber] mentioned the Lamo case at the end of his [DefCon] presentation as an example of Project Vigilants ability to make quick contact with the highest level people in the government.
Well they sound pretty well-connected to me, considering:
Uber said that after speaking with Lamo, he called the Cyber Defense Crime Center, which gave him phone numbers for the Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID), the Office of Special Investigations and a couple of other agencies he didnt recall.
Yep, they sound like they've got direct lines to the top level gov organs right at hand. Or as close as the directory assistance desk of some gov organ.
I'd say to Mr. Uber: Chet, you're a loser and a wanna-be. Go back to being both irrelevant and
And Visiting, seek better sources than "Examiner.com" (a perfect place for disinfo placement) & blogs?!
1) "Project Vigilant" makes little sense - if the alphabet agencies can hoover everything via Carnivore why do they need amateur, wannabe's like Uber to siphon off ISP traffic?
2) It's be funny to have 4chan post a week of plain~text traffic from Uber's net connection. See if he likes the medicine he dispenses.
3) Uber appears nearly naught in news, prior to Lamo/Manning incident. Why the sudden uncloaking? US.mil fighting back at Assange's recent uncloaking? Trying to scare future whistle-blowers into fearing their own ISP's?

He & Lamo seem to be pretty chummy if the prevalence of Chet's comments on Lamo's pics count.
Heh, Lamo on facebook is:
