This story will again be a little different from my previous stories as I plan to introduce some social engineering techniques. I'm not sure how long this story will run for as yet. This is just a fictitious story and no Windows boxes were harmed during the making of these posts.
As always I welcome any feedback and these posts are just a bit of fun and anyone using techniques described here to access systems should get permission first.
Setting The Scene
"Were sponsored by Hackers On Site, their specialty is hacking people and their technologies. Now, in the past you’ve thought, oh, I would like to hire a hacker, somebody to help me hack a system or root a box. But you’ve wondered, how can I know whether they’re any good or not? And that’s a real problem. That’s why you’re going to love Hackers On Site. All Hackers on Hackers On Site are independent Hackers, but they’re certified, and they have a University of Hackerology. There not hacking for themselves but they are by themselves.
And in fact they’re looking for new Hackers. So if you want to be a Hacker, you can. Hackers On Site is in Canada, U.S., Mexico, England, Australia, South Africa, and Beyond"
I can't believe it, all I do is run a little security website and I get an email asking if I want to join Hackers On Site. I guess I am pretty active in a few forums and on IRC but this is great, it's like my dream come true. The email said I can work as much or as little as I want, they will offer me hacking assignments and if I am available I can do them. What a gig! All I have to do is prove myself on this first job and then pick up further instructions. And the best part is and I get paid for doing what I enjoy most. Okay so there's a risk, but lets face it, theres a risk that i'll get hit by a bus but I still cross the road!
The target in question is Scanned4U. A company that specializes scanning paper archives and archiving them in digital format.
