E2-labs founder and manager, Mr. Zaki Qureshey confesses his dark hacker past in front of Ivory Coast government representatives and key multinational officials, setting the new bar and the highest standard for “colorful marketing”
During this meeting, the India’s renowned hacker and futurologist sets new standards also in history, geography and mathematics.
After each of the two videos, some of our comments and highligts
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 2:25 : “We started this company in year 2002, I was a computer expert, I used to serve the American Embassy in Kuwait, you know Iraq? They are neightbours, they fought a war in year 2001, and I was there in 2003, after the war and I served the American Embassy to get into telecommunication networks of Iraqi telecom and few other works, So this is how I got to security”.
Zone-H : Here Mr. Zaki Qureshey is a bit confused about time-lines. As he got into security in year 2003, a year after opening E2-Labs in 2002. Quite of a time-paradox. So either he was opening up the company in 2002 and working a full year without any knowledge up to when he went into security in 2003 or he is just making up stories on the fly. You know where we stand for. Anyhow we salute Mr. Zaki Qureshey’s braveness in confessing, to have helped the Evil American Empire in hacking their way through Muslim countries and “few other works”. You are a brave man, we hope your life in not in danger now that you came out with such confession.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 4:05 : “Believe me, the biggest security in the world is not FBI, is not CIA, is not Mossad, is not Defense or Military or anything else. The biggest security in the world is Cyber Security. You now why? Because every country has a border (…) Russia has border with China and India and so many other countries”
Zone-H : Mr. Zaki Qureshey, we didn’t know that Russia shared the border with India. Is this kind of geography lessons tought in E2-Labs’ classes? And you can’t really resist to fill your mouth with secret services, CIA,FBI, can you? Remember, those who can, they always stay shut.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 4:57 “You can sit on this computer in Ivory Coast and connect to America, just in seconds”
Zone-H : Perhaps it is time to upgrade your dial-up lines with ADSL?
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 5:30 : Mr. Zaki Qureshey start to ask about the job of the people in front of him and he realizes they are not idiots. He then ask them if they are sure about the security level of their organizazions by asking “Did you check your website security”?
Zone-H : Mr. Zaki Qureshey, security is not only defacements. Word from Zone-H, it counts.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 7:40 : Mr. Zaki Qureshey is referring to the brightness of his slides projected on the wall: “Hackers they have dark presentations, I have a light presentation”
Zone-H : Then you are not a hacker.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 8:05 : “Before, the world, there is something called… the biggest enemy called terrorism. I don’t know, have you heard about terrorism in Ivory Coast?”
Zone-H : No, they never knew what terrorism was in Ivory Coast before you came. Because this is what you were doing in that presentation: terrorism.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 00:30 : Mr. Zaki Qureshey attempts to explain the opensource in numbers and talks about his preferences over Microsoft Operating System: “It’s one of the best operating system in the world (Note: which one!?! You can’t refer to the whole open source world as one single operating system, there are tons). More secure. Seventy percent secure, thirty percent unsecure. If you see Windows, seventy percent, ninety percent vulnerable, ten percent not”.
Zone-H : Thank you Mr. Zaki Qureshey, now everything is more clear. The silence in the room after this phrase is embarassing. You mathematical skills are matching the legendary skills of the best Indian mathematicians. Your statistics over OS security are accurate and updated.
Mr. Zaki Qureshey @ 3:30 — 5:30 : Zaki, you can’t eat like that during that kind of meetings and in front of those people, it’s not polite , next time try not to do it.
Once again, we thank and salute Mr. Zaki Qureshey for his decision to stand up and reveal to the world his dark past, his connections with the evil American empire, his cyberfighters experiences through the telecommunication networks of Iraq “and few other works”. The only award that was missing on E2-labs website is now yours, you worked hard for it. The “ǝʌıʇɐǝɹɔ and colorful marketing” 2009 award.
