Ethical Hacker - or Undercover Spy?

Brand Killer Robots reveal::
Mike owns a penetration testing company. Mike agreed to meet us on condition we discuss our work at one of the countries largest media companies.

So we met him at the pub.

He turned up and he began to enquire about the company we worked for.
He wanted to know which other suppliers we dealt with for penetration testing and whether we had any test reports to show him.

We said nothing - and he left.

We never heard from him again.

Does he sound like an ethical hacker?

Or perhaps, he was just an undercover spy?
