Reminds me of Deniro’s line in The Irishman. “3 people can only keep a secret, when 2 of them are dead.”you are the best judge of what is in your best interest in these matters and not anyone else. "best practice" regarding the nature of the internet/forums/IoT's... is you can safely assume wherever you post, write, upload or otherwise reveal information it is not dissimilar to taking out space on the front page of the nyt. with that in mind, see rule 1, i.e. never tell anyone anything you don't want them to know. with that said you might devise an approach that divulges as little specifics and does not reflect on you as an individual. barring that i'd not post. regarding the iop, smart money is they would have probably played the card if they had it. additionally i presume you have taken steps to shore up your defenses and not relied on their better natures.
for my part, a couple of vendors have taken a run at me with not dissimilar malfeasance, public reveal threats etc. coming from essentially drug traffickers i didn't lose sleep. give that some thought and i'm certain you will divine why. then, that's me and not you. i'm not asking you to jeopardize yourself and nobody here should either.
