Here’s an interesting story about a network admin working for the city of San Francisco who’s refusing to give up a password. He won’t give it up, then why not just crack it? It’s probably a shared password anyway quite possibly stored/used somewhere else on his computer. There are TONS of password cracking tools out there by Elcomsoft and others. This could be an easy task.
Our government at work…
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
