Watch out - you're next.
Right now, as you read this, I am sifting through
the contents of your computer.
Yes, your computer. You.
The one reading this profile.
I am reading your emails, looking at your digital photos and images you have downloaded off the net, opening your most private documents and having a good read, or a good laugh, depending on the content.
To be honest, most of it is utterly boring.
Except for a few files. you know the ones I mean.
I know you don’t believe me, and i prefer it that way, but think about this.
When you opened this profile, your username showed up in a little un-deleteable list on the right of my profile.
It created a record on the little site on the net that is my profile. I might even put a little script that records all IP visits to my profile page onto the Gaia Servers. Yes, the systems they claim are impregnable.
But they are on the net.
And nothing is impregnable on the net.
From there, I have your username or IP.
I could dox you, or I could go straight for your IP.
I could run a vulnerability scan against it, and if I'm lucky, find an exploit and get into your computer.
Or maybe I dox you, find your email, and send you an email.
It might say something like "Hey dude, did you really post this? o-o" with a link. You might click on that link, just being curious.
Little did you know that the second you clicked on that link, a little bit of shellcode invaded your computer through a browser exploit, because you haven't updated your browser yet.
From there, the shellcode may open a port for me to come in through, or maybe install netcat or a remote command shell.
From here, we're back to the beginning - poking around your files.
But like I said in the beginning, most of it is utterly boring, and has no use to me - yet.
But maybe, in the future, if I need something from you - something you don't want to release publicly - I might just step back in, take what I need, and leave again.
Just remember this: NOTHING on the net is impregnable.
