Submission + - Unusual Penetration Testing Situations (net-security.org)

Orome1 writes: SANS Institute author and instructor Raul Siles talks about unusual and interesting situations he encountered while working as a penetration tester, outlines practical tips for those interested in a penetration testing career, lists his favorite tools, and much more. Raul remembers: "On the funny side, I remember a penetration test where we got access to one of the target Unix servers, we found it was previously compromised. The attacker had established it as his basement repository for warez (illegal software) and movies. As soon as we notified the customer about the findings, the first thing he did was to request us a copy of all the movies before proceeding to delete them."

Laindraug writes: "The 'Le Devoir' French canadian Montreal Newspaper had a front page title today ( november 8) that said (once traduced) : 'Pirates can sleep well' : RCMP'S is abandoning the fight against music piracy because 'its just too big to fight against' ` The newspaper also shows the difference between Canada and USA, stating that in october, Jammie Thomas in USA was condemned to a 220 000$ dollar fine for having downloaded 24 mp3's..and in Canada, there will just be no more police to look at this kind of piracy. 'Today, its so simple to copy, everybody is clueless on how to fight this' , as stated by Canadian RCMP's. Canadian Pirates, rejoice."
