comment Is it still unsafe to email credit card number nowadays?
+1 for the sent items folder. An attacker can easily perform a search for numbers that resemble CC conventions.

comment How do researchers “gain control of an attacking PC” and not themselves be considered attackers / criminals?
Also, as a result of the merge, there was a bit of comment confusion. I thought gowenfawr and zedman9091's answers were directly made to mine - which they're not. My question is generic in nature and not specific to the McAfee incident. I was interested in a general sense how security professionals can gain access to an attacking machine.

@Augusto My questions aren't specific to McAfee. They're generic. I just used the McAfee scenario as a real life example to kick the generic questions off.

Excellent answer! That explains a lot.
