Anonymous Coward writes "Apparently, Petko D. Petkov, the security researcher and "ethical hacker" behind projects like GNUCITIZEN, as well as the discoverer of several vulnerabilities in software like Quicktime and Adobe Acrobat, has been compromised.

His e-mail communications since 2006 have been released to the public by an anonymous group self-proclaimed the "Great Council of Internet Superheros", who accuse Petkov of selling out with a tongue in cheek humor.
