Today, David Vincenzetti is a cyberarms dealer who does business with some of the world’s most repressive regimes.


Twenty years ago, he was on the other side of the fight. Vincenzetti was a cypherpunk who built tools to beat hackers and lived in the same nascent online world as Julian Assange, journalist and hacker Jacob Appelbaum, and a group of Internet revolutionaries who continue to change our world today.

Vincenzetti, now 47 years old, is the CEO of Hacking Team, an Italian technology company notorious for selling aggressive cyberweapons to many governments, including those that target journalists, human rights activists, and ordinary citizens.

Hacking Team was itself hacked on Sunday night, and the resulting leaks have laid bare the close business ties Vincenzetti keeps with repressive governments around the world, such as Russia and Sudan, despite international sanctions and moral outcry. The U.S. government is also a customer of Vincenzetti’s along with three dozen other governmental clients, according to documents allegedly obtained from Hacking Team’s systems.


Transparency for the powerfull – Privacy for the weak

that’s how it is supposed to be.
