Is this a trolling?

If not, look at the USENIX proceedings/foils/journals:

However, grifting is an old art that predates modern computing.

Hello everyone,

I am currently planning on writting a thesis on social engineering, I have
been fascinated with this subject since I watched Hackers 2/Takedown and
read Kevin Mitnick's book.

Now before I fully take on this idea, what products currently exist to
minimize/prevent social engineering? If anyone saw Hackers 2/Takedown,
Tsutomu Shimomura used a program that could tell him if the person on the
phone actually exists in a company, does this sort of software exist?

Sorry, if this is in the wrong mailing list, but I didn't see a "Social
Engineering" mail list ;)

Thanks

~Davie Elliott
