One of the best videos on social engineering from one of the best. Security expert and author Johnny Long of “Google Hacking” and “Hackers for Charity” fame, wrote an exceptional book called “No Tech Hacking”. Johnny proves that low tech or “no tech” skills are sometimes all that are needed in a penetration test. “No Tech Hacking” was probably one of the most enjoyable computer security books that I have ever read.
In this YouTube video from DefCon 15, Johnny covers many of the same topics from his book. You will be treated to Johnny’s unique observation skills, humor and whit. But you will also learn about bypassing a multi-million dollar security system with a coat hanger and a wash cloth, how to walk through walls, how to disappear and Jedi mind tricks.
It is definitely worth checking out.
