sackbut (1922510) writes "From the story:"Jean-Pierre Lesueur is in many ways a typical 22-year-old computer geek. He lives outside of Paris, coding Java by day for a European company that processes airline tickets. He likes playing the piano and reading Stephen Hawking. But he’s also the man who built Dark Comet — which was recently used by the Syrian government to steal information from the computers of activists fighting to overthrow it.

Dark Comet is a software application that gives you remote control over another computer, and Lesueur says he wrote it just to prove his programming cred.""
