I want to get into penetration testing, and want to use a dedicated PC for the task. I was thinking about getting a cheap second hand machine, but I'm stuck on believing that pre-used computers can no longer be trusted because of possible badUSB firmware infections that are undetectable and unfixable... am I correct in this belief? Thanks in anticipation.
Hey-row to HAK5 this sunny, hot, Michigan day. I got an email (OH NO, AN EMAIL?!) stating that I was the winner of a brand new iPhone. Click this link to CLAIM MY PRIZE... and I delete before it is opened. Now, I know all of you (being on this forum) should know that this is a S.E. trick that is in wide use. We all have gotten over the fact that the internet is not this glorious, clean, and SAFE environment. So, I thought to myself, why not pick apart what makes a GREAT SOCIAL ENGINEER? Consider if you will (FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY), you completely wipe out any human compassion and, well, frankly just not give a good damn about anybody. I think that is the first step to making a great Social Engineer. You must look at nothing with an emotional capacity. That eliminates a good portion of us Technolusters'. I like helping people, and I was raised not to steal and to be kind. BUT, we all know that there are people out there that have this mentality of "GIMME GIMME GIMME", I think once that stigma is aligned right; it is time to look into Social Engineering. What else does one need to become a callous, heartless, Social Engineer?
