For everyone out there that keeps commenting on “How To Hack Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc etc” (MOM), here’s a great article on hacking into a gmail account WITHOUT using fake login screens or any of that pesky hard work. TG Daily has this great article, “Point and click Gmail hacking at Black Hat” that gives you a peek into the latest and greatest way to get into someone else’s email account.
Here’s an excerpt:
[…] The attack is actually quite simple. First Graham needs to be able to sniff data packets and in our case the open Wi-Fi network at the convention fulfilled that requirement. He then ran Ferret to copy all the cookies flying through the air. Finally, Graham cloned those cookies into his browser – in easy point-and-click fashion – with a home-grown tool called Hamster.
[…] But if that wasn’t scary enough, Graham told us that he can even log in the next day or possibly several days later into the Gmail account. “I can just copy the data to a file and replay it later. I’ve been able to log into Gmail accounts one day later,” said Graham.
Since the attack relies on sniffing traffic, using SSL or some type of encryption (like a VPN tunnel) would stop Graham in his tracks. However, many people browsing at public wireless hotspots don’t use such protections.
“You’re an idiot if you use T-Mobile hotspot,” said Graham.
I personally love the last comment there from Graham… just sayin.
One last note, read the friggin article. CLICK THE SOURCE – PLZ kthx.
There, let’s hug it out bitches!!!
After reading 11 Causes and Cures for Procrastination over at johnplaceonline.com, I thought it might be helpful to write a small list of things that seem to piss people off at the office and how to avoid them. I know it may seem unprofessional to say “piss people off” in a fairly professional article on how not to get fired, but its the only phrase that seems to capture the idea with any accuracy. So, please forgive the language, because it was indeed pertinent to the article.
Getting yourself “fired” from an office bureaucracy is actually kind of hard to do these days. No one wants to go through all the paper work and red tape that it takes to get someone terminated with cause, but it can be done with the greatest of ease if you really piss people off. You can be the most worthless employee since that guy who has an IQ of 80 and not get fired, but piss people off and you WILL get fired. You’d be amazed at the extent a company will go in order to get you GONE, just for being a bit of a nuisance to the wrong person.
This list may seem trite or even funny, but its not a joke. All of these “ways to get fired” have been tested and combined with the result of termination. I am making this list as much for some old friends of mine as for myself or anyone. I hope it can help.
16 Ways To Get Fired, And How To Avoid Them:
If your wondering, yes I know the people who did these acts and which combinations got them fired, a few have high paying office jobs right now after recovering from getting fired. You also may notice that I use the phraise “someone is always watching YOU” several times. That’s because its true. Even if you don’t know it, somebody hates you at your office. They hate you and they are watching you ALL THE TIME, just so they can tell “the boss” or a high powered friend about how much YOU piss them off and why.
Its all horribly true. You may feel like you can’t be YOU at the office after reading this, but you can. The key is to stay off everyone’s radar. If your cube is in a high traffic area, try to get moved. If you need to express yourself, do it with office toys and other knick knacks that stay in your cube and don’t offend or bother anyone. If you get bored, that means you need a better challenge, perhaps a bigger assignment or task bosses love people who ask for a bigger chunk of work. It may also be time to move on to a new job. Who knows, your dream job may be just around the corner, but you can’t get that dream job while trying to collect unemployment insurance. Jobs are like houses or girlfriends, you don’t want to lose your current one until you have another one in your grasp or at least in your sights, and you never want to leave the old one in a poor disposition. You never know who you’ll wind up needing in the future.
Playing along with the political games that go on at the office, or “playing ball”, may seem like a waste of energy and time, probably because these games are wastes of time and effort, but they must be paid lip service at the least. “Playing ball” is the equivalent of cleaning your toilet at home, it sucks big time, but it has to be done in order for life to move on.
