GOBBLES is the greatest group of trolls that have ever existed. Their drama-generating techniques used were truly of far greater magnitude than anything that has been seen since. The skill and grace with which they whipped the entire whitehat security industry into a frothing, hateful rage make even hardened masters of trollery like the GNAA look retarded and inefficient.

GOBBLES was such a master of trollery that songs will be sung of their feats for many generations of trolls to come.

Who is/are GOBBLES?

GOBBLES Security is an off-again on-again group of about 20 hackers who look for exploitable code and security flaws with all sorts of internet related programs. GOBBLES has found critical flaws in many different programs, including:

GOBBLES is infamous for their no-heads up "Vendor Notifications" which serve as a massive "Fuck You" to the company who's product is being worked around:

The professional staff of GOBBLES Security believe that by releasing our advisories without vendor notification of any sort is cute and humorous, so this is also the first time the vendor has been made aware of this problem. We hope that you're as amused with our maturity as we are. ;PpPppPpPpPPPpP

MP3 Hydra

In 2003, GOBBLES caused an internet-wide panic when they announced that they were working with the RIAA to make a hydra that had already propagated to all corners of the internet, infecting some 95% of p2p networks. Furthermore they said that the exploit was totally uncatchable using normal means.

Security Faggots the world over proceeded to shit bricks and delete all their music from their computers, only to have GOBBLES come out a week later saying that it was all an elaborate hoax. They also pointed out a security vulnerability in the file format itself that allowed for the insertion of code to delete things from Unix-based systems.

The only excuse we can offer for our immaturity is that we like the fame


—GOBBLES Security talking to Wired

This has also served to smear GOBBLES name through the muck, so that when they release their next security warning the world will ignore them and pay the penalty.

Trolling the Securifags

First issue of GOBBLES webcomic.

GOBBLES' more infamous troll targets included Theo de Raadt, Alfred Huger, and Michal Zalewski (aka lcamtuf). He asked whitehat 'security expert' Raven what she was doing working in security when she couldn't even keep her own laptop from being pwned at schmoocon.

Weev Gettin' "Tree'd" (though not really...)

On Sept. 15th 2009, weev was semi-dox'd on the notorious Full-Disclosure mailing list.(link)

lol buddy i put my name in my own fuckin' blog its not like youve discovered some big secret

also, i lol that it took the worlds most well funded law enforcement agency working at the behest of the one true arm of satan just to dox me.

you dudes are sad.

lets smoke crack and kill jews.


—weev's responce

In essence, GOBBLES gets their name from what they like to do to boys cocks, just like those faggots in zf0. It's not even really a "tree" because his dox are not in a tree format.
