I wouldn't do it myself, but it's hard to blame anyone but the hacker who got hacked himself. They who live by the sword shall die by the sword.

Sounds
like a great offensive and strategy to gain back your companies
stolen data. Does sound a bit sketchy when discussing the legality of
it, but is it stealing if it is already yours? When does the company
draw the line? What happens when you get the angry IT security guy
who wants to teach the hacker a lesson, and goes to far? If security
is an issue and it is that severe of a threat then maybe I would
invest in other options for information security. So am I
understanding this correctly CERT only intervene after an issue or
data has been stolen or are they making moves based upon who they
believe to be threats. If they do not wait, then what difference are
they compared to the hackers they are seeking out?
