Exculpated: The Iowa Confusion

Dallas County Iowa Courthouse

via the sagacious Dan Goodin, Security Editor at Ars Technica, comes news of the exoneration of two Coalfire (Coalfire is a security risk management firm with headquarters in the astoundingly-beautiful State of Colorado) Penetration Testers of all charges (see the previously published story and opinion piece) related to contract penetration testing (evidently, both physical and logical) work for the resplendent-yet-down-to-earth State of Iowa’s Judicial Branch. This is great news for both the Information Security Industry and the two Pentesters.

Now, one more thing: Who’s going to take care of expunging their respective police arrest records?
