The Hidden Face of Terrorism: The Dark Side of Social Engineering

The Hidden Face of Terrorism: The Dark Side of Social Engineering, From Antiquity to September 11As the cliché reminds us, information is power. In this age of computer systems and technology, an increasing majority of the world's information is stored electronically. It makes sense then that as an industry we rely on high-tech electronic protection systems to guard that information. As a professional hacker, I get paid to uncover weaknesses in those systems and exploit them. Whether breaking into buildings or slipping past industrial-grade firewalls, my goal has always been the same: extract the informational secrets using any means necessary. After hundreds of jobs, I discovered the secret to bypassing every conceivable high-tech security system. This book reveals those secrets, and as the title suggests, it has nothing to do with high technology. As it turns out, the secret isn't much of a secret at all. Hackers have known about these techniques for years. Presented in a light, accessible style, you'll get to ride shotgun with the authors on successful real-world break-ins as they share photos, videos and stories that prove how vulnerable the high-tech world is to no-tech attacks.

As you browse this book, you'll hear old familiar terms like “dumpster diving”, “social engineering”, and “shoulder surfing”. Some of these terms have drifted into obscurity to the point of becoming industry folklore; the tactics of the pre-dawn information age. But make no mistake; these and other old-school tactics work with amazing effectiveness today. In fact, there's a very good chance that someone in your organization will fall victim to one or more of these attacks this year. Will they be ready?

. Dumpster Diving
Be a good sport and don't read the two “D” words written in big bold letters above, and act surprised when I tell you hackers can accomplish this without relying on a single bit of technology (punny).
. Tailgating
Hackers and ninja both like wearing black, and they do share the ability to slip inside a building and blend with the shadows.
. Shoulder Surfing
If you like having a screen on your laptop so you can see what you're working on, don't read this chapter.
. Physical Security
Locks are serious business and lock technicians are true engineers, most backed with years of hands-on experience. But what happens when you take the age-old respected profession of the locksmith and sprinkle it with hacker ingenuity?
. Social Engineering with Jack Wiles
Jack has trained hundreds of federal agents, corporate attorneys, CEOs and internal auditors on computer crime and security-related topics. His unforgettable presentations are filled with three decades of personal “war stories” from the trenches of Information Security and Physical Security.
. Google Hacking
A hacker doesn't even need his own computer to do the necessary research. If he can make it to a public library, Kinko's or Internet cafe, he can use Google to process all that data into something useful.
. P2P Hacking
Let's assume a guy has no budget, no commercial hacking software, no support from organized crime and no fancy gear. With all those restrictions, is this guy still a threat to you? Have a look at this chapter and judge for yourself.
. People Watching
Skilled people watchers can learn a whole lot in just a few quick glances. In this chapter we'll take a look at a few examples of the types of things that draws a no-tech hacker's eye.
. Kiosks
What happens when a kiosk is more than a kiosk? What happens when the kiosk holds airline passenger information? What if the kiosk holds confidential patient information? What if the kiosk holds cash?
. Vehicle Surveillance
Most people don't realize that some of the most thrilling vehicular espionage happens when the cars aren't moving at all!

Attacking Network Protocols is a deep-dive into network vulnerability discovery from James Forshaw, Microsoft's top bug hunter. This comprehensive guide looks at networking from an attacker's perspective to help you find, exploit, and ultimately protect vulnerabilities.

Part I starts with a rundown of networking basics and traffic capture, as it builds a foundation for analyzing a network. Part II moves on to protocol analysis, both static and dynamic; you'll learn about common protocol structures, cryptography, and protocol security, and how to reverse engineer code with IDA Pro, ILSpy, and Javasnoop. Part III focuses on finding and exploiting vulnerabilities, including an overview of common bug classes, fuzzing, debugging, exhaustion attacks, and how to develop custom tools. Forshaw ends with an overview of the best tools for analyzing and exploiting networks. By the book's end, you'll have a deep understanding of how to analyze network communication and where to look for vulnerabilities. You'll learn how to:Capture, manipulate, and spoof packets both passively and on the wireCreate your own capture frameworkReverse engineer code, brute force passwords, and decrypt traffic Exploit vulnerabilities with denial-of-service attacks, SQL injections, and memory corruptionsUse protocol capture tools like IDA Pro, Wireshark, and CANAPEStrengthen your exploits by rerouting network traffic, exploiting compression, and controlling data flowAttacking Network Protocols is a must-have for any penetration tester, bug hunter, or developer looking to exploit and secure network vulnerabilities.
