    The young researcher said although the White Hat card definitely carries some geek cred, he won’t be flashing it at security conferences to buy drinks for his contemporaries anytime soon.
    “I don’t think I’d want to use card like that at [hacker conventions like] Black Hat or DefCon,” Poole said. “It’d probably get cloned, or I’d feel like if you pulled out the card it you would immediately become a target.”

    I wonder how many black hats are frantically developing a malicious FB app to target all these folks, after perhaps having been issued a Facebook White Hat Debit Card...:p
