MELBOURNE, Australia - Nov. 1, 2017 - PRLog -- Australian Computer Society (ACS) failed to act on 'Sockpuppet Cyber Deception'

In the soon to be announced 'ICT Professional of the Year' award (2/11/2017), a nominee has been subject to over a month of cyber-stalking as the ACS would not admit their Twitter account was spoofed by trolls/hackers terrorising the nominee

A 'sockpuppet' is defined as 'an online identity used for purposes of deception'. A highly regarded Cybersecurity expert Simon Smith, also known as eVestigator has been subject to constant stalking, deceit, attacks and false accusations and publications from cyber-criminals over Twitter, what Mr. Smith warns is a "criminal stalkers playground".

"They even go as far as inventing evidence because there is nothing that they can say of fact. They have gone through my personal life, drawn disgusting images over my personal pictures, stolen copyright images, falsified emails, falsified documents, engaged in hate speech, created fake websites, report false information, and more. Their motive? I found a hacker network purporting to be "infosec" and "cybersec" wanting to cash in on the Government's tax incentive – when really, by their actions they have proven to be criminal black hat hackers."

Mr. Smith then went on to say, "However, the concerning part is that the ACS were contacted by two of my prior clients with express concern for my well-being, asking, 'Why are you not making a public statement protecting your nominee?'. One prior client was shocked to hear four promises that they would be addressing the issue were not honoured."

It is advised, another prior client wrote in showing her dissatisfaction and questioned the ethics of the 'professional organisation' was ignored. Mr. Smith said, "I personally wrote to the ACS many times and was ignored or diverted. Having 21 years' experience in the industry and in business, running successful 10 figure Corporations, it is my view that the ACS ethics policy is breached. I put it to them that they had a duty of care to report the Cybercrime instead of brushing the matter under the carpet for reputational purposes."

The incident occurred on the 7th October 2017. "I had to resort to contacting the former CEO of Melbourne IT Simon Smith myself. His secretary was lovely and confirmed with him that he was not at all affiliated with any ACS activity and knew nothing of it."

The day before the awards are announced, after a month of Cyberstalkers having made in excess of 50 retweets and tweets direct to the real ACS Twitter account containing both the image and questions, today the 1st November 2017, Mr. Smith received an email from Stephen Buckman, the CTO of ACS with a record breaking turnaround of less than 24 hour result to Mr. Smith's his official complaint.

In response, it stated, "We have completed a thorough review…there is no record of any activity in the screen images which we can analyse. In the absence of full screenshot and source code from Twitter for these comments, we are unable to take the investigation further, and consider the investigation closed."

To that Mr. Smith says, "Regardless of tomorrow's outcome – 1st, 2nd or 3rd, ACS conduct of hiding a cybercrime is a disgrace. I have morals, and this shows a lack of public disclosure. I do not endorse these business practices. I do this work for Australia, and deserve respect. Any trophy that comes my way will be returned to sender."
