Hi Anons. If you could have root on any porkies machine who would it be? >“Hacking gives the underdog a chance to fight and win.” -PhinPhish
I used to work for this fortune 1000 company. They ended up fireing me for stealing from them, but, I always wanted to hack the office computer. it would be so easy to install a rootkit on that thing. The terminal had no password and i had access to it at all times with no cameras. I could have fucked them hard. The IT guy was on his shit though. He knew what he was doing.
>>4288 Why didn't you do it anon? I often wonder this as there are a lot of good people who work for terrible people. It would be the simplest thing for anyone who works in an office to slip a backdoor onto theirs or someone else machine and even make it look like an accident. What is it that it makes you not act on your beliefs?
>>4309 I'm scared of going to prison. Even though I know the chances are slim that I would get caught it was still the fear of it holding me back.
>>4331 A) Know what they can use to detect that you're in their systems B) Know what they can use to link it back to you From these two points you narrow down the chance of being caught. You could hack an old machine, for example, since reconnaissance is the most important part of hacking, and you got access to it all. In case you get caught they wouldn't think it was an insider. But be safe, if you don't master what you are doing, you'll be caught.
>>4331 How do we persuade and/or help you, anon?
>>4331 If you prepare the rootkit beforehand and put it in some kind of simple tool (like an addon for a text editor or something dumb) and then release it anonymously in public, you get plausible deniability for it. So when they ask you "hey, our data got hacked and you unlocked the door when it happened" you can say you just compiled this cool github thing that would've helped your workflow. You might not even get fired for it then, since this shit happens all the time anyways.
>>4410 >>4411 he said that he used to work for the company, he's not going to be able to waltz back in there and get his hands on a company computer. >>4288 half the time, the IT guy actually doesn't know his shit, even in companies with supposedly high security/compliance requirements. speaking from experience.
