My Conversation with a Hacker

I had a fun encounter this morning with a hacked Facebook account that started chatting with me.  Realizing it was a hack, I decided to play along and see how far it would get.  Keep in mind, I knew the entire time that the person that the account belongs to was not in London.  Here’s the transcription:
Me: hey val!

Hacked Account: we are not too good at the moment in a deep mess

Me: what’s going on

Hacked Account: we are currently stuck in London uk,went there on a short vacation unfortunately we got mugged at a gun point last night…scary!

Me: whoa
Me: i had no idea

Hacked Account: i was hurt on my head,writing you in tears now as we speak,all cash and credit card was stolen off including cell phone,it was a brutal experience

Me: oh my
Me: are you guys ok?
Me: hello?

Hacked Account: we are freaked out here,have been to the embassy and the police they are not helping issues at all i was ask to come back in three weeks time

Me: so what are you going to do?

Hacked Account: thank God we still have our life and passport saved with us…Our return flight leaves in few hours…i need your help

    Haha! My wife’s hotmail account was phished in a similar manner before we got married. I was scared she was getting cold feet when I read that she was headed to Europe for an emergency and needed $2700. Being interested in Information Security as I am, and having our entire wedding list contact info in her hotmail contacts, I took matters into my own hand and got the account banned.

    Always, always, always be mindful of who is around you at starbucks, panera, or other free WiFi hotspots using a computer. Man in the middle attacks can easily strip SSL encryption in your wireless transmission showing your username, password, and website currently communicating with in plain text on the attacker’s screen. For $30 anyone can purchase a packet injecting / monitor mode antenna device, and for free download a Hacker’s Toolkit OS complete with all sorts of nasty scripts and programs.
