Kevin Mitnick is not a hacker, he's just a cracker who happens to have been caught and did some money on the process, and most probably is just
trying to gather attention as always happens with him.
Yeah we all know everything can be hacked, but this coming from someone like him for me just speaks of the same old need for attention, "look at me,
here i am, hey please look at me!"
"It's a long shot, but it's possible. You'd probably need to be pretty sophisticated, but there's people out there who are,"
This doesn't mean anything at all.
"If I was the attacker, I would look to Obama's close circle of friends, family and associates and try to compromise their machines at home. The
objective would be to get Obama's e-mail address on the BlackBerry,"
And this is just common sense, nothing else, and the same old bag of tricks that has been used since more than 20 or 30 years now.
Got bored, sorry, can Obama's blackberry be hacked, yes, it can be done, humans make mistakes, and there's always a chance for someone to notice
The title of the thread seems misleading, seems you are inviting people to hack obama's blackberry, i can hear moderators coming for you....
Edited to add, what mitnick is describing there, is just the usual game, don't go and try to get the big one, instead, find the weakest link and use
it to get what you need, this doesn't require great knowledge or anything like that, not even a big IQ, you just need to know the tricks, and repeat
them until you find someone who falls for them, as i said, mitnick is not a hacker, this is a crackers game.
