Teenage Hacker Impersonates CIA and FBI Leaders
#1
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01...ghanistan/

"The teenager persuaded call handlers at an internet giant that he was John Brennan, the then director of the CIA, to gain access to his computers and an FBI helpdesk that he was Mark Giuliano, then the agency’s Deputy Director, to re-gain access to an intelligence database."

So he basically call and asked for his password!

I think it's funny how you can add all the physical and software security you want, but humans remain the one thing that's easily exploitable.

I would feel shit calling the secret service and social engineer into getting the chief officers password just to publicly release confidential information.
Why the fuck would anyone do that like, honestly.
