Social Engineering - Security Through Education

Social Engineering - Security Through Education
Social Engineering (SE) is both incredibly complex and amazingly simple. What really is social engineering? We define it as the act of manipulating a person to accomplish goals that may or may not be in the “target’s” best interest. This may include obtaining information , gaining access, or getting the target to take certain action. Due to the mystery surrounding this dark art many people are afraid of it, or they feel they will never be able to accomplish a successful social engineering test. However, every time you try to get someone to do something that is in your interest, you are engaging in social engineering.

Compass Module This is a fully integrated compass module that combines the Honeywell HMC6352 2-axis magneto-resistive sensors with the required analog and digital support circuits, microprocessor and algorithms for heading computation. It comes assembled with a 4-pin male header soldered on. The Compass Sensor is fully integrated with the Antipasto Arduino IDE and can provide compass headings in degrees over Arduino serial. Help Us, Hackers, You’re Our Only Hope, NSA Chief Tells DefCon Let's hope he wasn't carrying anything unsecured on his Blackberry. By Kelly Faircloth 7/30/12 8:53am Share this: General Alexander. (Photo: Wikipedia) Les starter kits pour Arduino Un "starter kit" permet de démarrer un projet avec tous les éléments nécessaires afin de ne pas perdre de temps et d’éviter la frustration de manquer d’un composant à 20 centimes pour terminer votre montage. Mais quand on débute, il est difficile d’évaluer ses besoins. Avec plus de sept années d’utilisation de micro-contrôleurs en amateurs, nous vous apportons notre expérience dans le choix d’un kit pour bien débuter, tout en économisant l’achat de composants en grand nombre. Si vous achetez une carte Arduino seule, vous pourrez certes apprendre la programmation en C, et avec la majorité des versions même faire clignoter une led. Mais le but de cette carte est de pouvoir connecter des composants électroniques sur ses entrées et sorties, soit des capteurs, soit des actionneurs, ou même des systèmes complexes (GPS, lecteur mp3, etc...) et il faut donc s’équiper.

Programmable HID USB Keystroke Dongle: Using the Teensy as a pen testing device Programmable HID USB Keystroke Dongle: Using the Teensy as a pen testing device Quick Links To Sections: Introduction So, why would a pen-tester want one? Motion Activated Camera - Day of the New Dan December 20, 2009 I made a relatively simple attachment to my Canon SLR to create a motion activated camera using Arduino. A lot of this was based on and inspired by the intervalometer project at The Honey Jar.

FreedomBox Foundation For those of you who have not heard through the mailing list or in the project's IRC channel (#freedombox on FreedomBox has reached the 0.2 release. This second release is still intended for developers but represents a significant maturation of the components we have discussed here in the past and a big step forward for the project as a whole. 0.2 features Plinth, our user interface tool, is now connected to a number of running systems on the box including PageKite, an XMPP chat server, local network administration if you want to use the FreedomBox as a home router, and some diagnostic and general system configuration tools. Plinth also has support for downloading and installing ownCloud.

Pastenum – Pastebin/pastie enumeration tool Introduction When conducting a pen-test, the process typically starts with the reconnaissance phase, the process of gathering information about your target(s) system, organization or person. Today, we want to present a tool that can be added to your reconnaissance toolkit. Text dump sites such as pastebin and allow users to dump large amounts of text for sharing and storage. As these sites become more popular the amount of sensitive information being posted will inevitably increase. Pastenum is designed to help you find that information and bring it into one easy to read location.

BIOS Password Backdoors in Laptops Synopsis: The mechanics of BIOS password locks present in current generation laptops are briefly outlined. Trivial mechanisms have been put in place by most vendors to bypass such passwords, rendering the protection void. A set of master password generators and hands-on instructions are given to disable BIOS passwords.
