You Want Us to Do What?

You may have read Adam Penenberg’s PandoDaily article, “I challenged hackers to investigate me and what they found out is chilling,” explaining how we infiltrated Adam’s life in just a couple weeks. http://pandodaily.com/2013/10/31/a-reporter-asked-us-to-hack-him-and-heres-how-we-did-it/

Adam approached Trustwave asking for our advanced research and ethical hacking team, SpiderLabs, to hack him. Since the SpiderLabs team at Trustwave performs thousands of penetration tests every year, we were a natural fit for this project and jumped at the opportunity.

The PandoDaily story gave Adam’s account, but we thought it would be interesting to provide our perspective and follow that with some helpful lessons to be learned from this exercise.

    It was really informative and fun. I agree with Ryan, Jaku and Ricktern did a really good job highlighting their efforts.
