How a ‘NULL’ License Plate Landed One Hacker in Ticket Hell.

(Wired) — Joseph Tartaro never meant to cause this much trouble. Especially for himself.

In late 2016, Tartaro decided to get a vanity license plate. A security researcher by trade, he ticked down possibilities that related to his work: SEGFAULT, maybe, or something to do with vulnerabilities.

"
--George Washington, letter to Benjamin Lincoln, 1788
