That seems to be the latest thread in the world of the internet ... Social engineering will never be out dated because we are humans and we are allowed to make mistakes. The thing is that we have to be aware not to make the same mistake all the time ..

I bought a t-shirt thats says Social Engineering specialist. Because there is not patch for human stupidity ... I am with that quote and i beleive thats the main idea behind Social Engineering and phishing.

well phishing is not just a hotmail scum or yahoo or anything else. Phishing can be used for ANY login screen .. may be a cpanel screen may be a paypal login screen and so on .. Anything that has the following form :

Quote:
username :
password :


Smile emm seems silly but .. its the truth..

ok .. now .. i know waraxe is doing a great job on that .. and thats a nice new section on the forum .. but we need some permitions to open an online scum service Razz

good work waraxe

social engineering is EASY

some tips to get beginners started...

to get his/her birthdate
"when is your birthday? i want to get you a present!"

to get his/her postal code
"can you give me your full address so i can send you a postcard?"

just make it very subtle and dont bombard the victim with questions.

The great thing about social engineering is that if someone is 'free and easy' with information like that, they usually are careless enough to use the same password for several sites / purposes. So once you get their 'just another forum' login, the chances are you've got their work / bank / pc details too Smile

Lol, this is an old post, but I thought this was funny; for many online games, people are not supposed to give out birthdays because it truely is a safety hazard; all you need to steel someone's account and reset their info is their birthday, first name, and their log in name. All of which are easy to get; start a conversation; ask how old they are; then say your the same age; "WOW ME TOO! When were you born?" automatically have their birthday. And you know the year, because of how old they are. Their name is what you get in the beginning, because you say "hi, my name is_____" and they are likely to give you theirs. Login name is somewhat harder; but what's funny, is once you get into a conversation, just look for a few things; ask for an MSN or email address. Guess what; if their in game name (IGN) matches their email address, then chances are that's also their login name. If not, ask if they have a main account. This works for many things other than just online games.

Be creative, and always be smarter than the target.
