Pando Daily editor Adam Penenberg recently published a story about my coworkers and I hacking his life entitled “I challenged hackers to investigate me and what they found out is chilling”. If you haven’t already, I strongly recommend that you read it.
Pando Daily also published a follow-up blog post, “A reporter asked us to hack him, and here's how we did it”, explaining our perspective on the project this week.
We thought that some of our friends and readership might appreciate even more technical details about the infiltration. So we've decided to publish a three-part series of posts on the topic.
Parts one and two will detail the malware and phishing aspects of our hack with contributions from myself, Matt Jakubowski and Daniel Chechik. Next week, our colleague Garret Picchioni will publish more technical details about the onsite and wireless portions of the attack.
