You’ve heard of the Sony Hack, right?
Ok, ok, I’m laughin my ass off over here.
I do SO enjoy a good practical joke sometimes!
About two weeks ago, I logged into equipment in Japan where all internet based communication goes through.
All traffic in Asia to the United States goes through Japan.
I had still had administrative access to the equipment I had worked with when I was sent to Hong Kong and Singapore to optimize networks and software systems for both the NSA and for Prudential Real Estate and Relocation which Warren Buffet was in the process of purchasing.
In a relatively simple computer program I placed on the equipment which is used to communicate between Sony and the United States, I created something called a ‘spoofed’ log entry.
A spoofed log entry is a ‘fictionalized’ entry which has not really happened.
Anytime information was grabbed from Sony by legitimate users, I would randomly place a spoofed log entry which would make it appear like information was being sent to North Korea.
In a nutshell what this means is data was never stolen.
It took Sony’s administrators 3 days to figure out what happened.
By then, they were so mired in their lies they could not change course.
In any case.
NOTHING I DID was illegal.
I had legitimate administrative access to the equipment which have had little, if any maintenance since I last did work on them in 2009.
And since the administrators of this equipment have had little, if any, awareness of what’s going on with their equipment let alone how their systems work…….
THAT, my friends, is what a homeless hacker does when he’s bored and penniless.
