Today hacking becomes more and more money based. In early ages of
internet, hacking was more like a "show-off" between good and bad guys.
Unfortunatelly, today, hackers can be divided in few categories.
Ethical one (lab hackers) , script kiddies (wich includes scam site
builders, phising sites, piracy and more) and ( most dangerous) those
known as on-command hackers (very good skilled and working for a lot of
money). Every category have their own target(s) .
Knowing what they are targeting and why, realising if the network, OS,
software we protect is one of any category target is a good way to start
protecting and defending.
Latest phising metod(s) ? Simple. Pose as a script kiddie in one or more
underground sites or chat and you'll be "on news" with them.

Dear mailing list members ,

been working on the latest methods of the penetration testing; as part of my
research I have some questions and I would be very thankful if you would
help me find the answers.
I believe in order to provide the required level of security for any
application, network or operating system, we need to look at it from the
hacker's point of view because they have been always one step ahead of us. I
need to know what the hacker's main focuses are. For example, "Subverting
Windows 2003 SP1 Kernel Integrity protection"? or "defeating stack based
overflow prevention mechanism". What are the latest phishing methods? and
And in general, what is the direction of the hacking methods in the near
