People getting into the information security field needs a lot of patience
from thyself. Learn everything they want on their own to get job done.
Hacking your institution is not fair. It is not even where you get that
values either :-).

If you really want to delve into the infosec you have to use your
imagination always. No one is spoon fed here. If you have friends willing to
work and discover the secrets of security then mingle with them. You can
even make a single computer into two or even more it depends to the hardware
specification. Go get some practice at home not at your university.

Hope it helps.

To the community,

            I know this is more than likely uncommon for one to post, but
here we go.. My name is Joe Marinaccio, and I'm in my first year at
Vatterott. I'm working on a B.S. Degree in Network Engineering. I'm very
fascinated by Information Security, and countermeasures to prevent
from within, as well as from the outside. I'm new to a lot of aspects
in your mailings, but I try to do my part in researching to understand
topics discussed. My question is, I would like to do an outside project
relating to security, simulating a real world situation, in the
At school, we are on a windows 2000 professional LAN. The students all
"limited" account privileges. We use a virtual drive ran off the server,
along with our own local drive on our machine. Also, we share a local
printer. If need be, I can give further details of the network.

I would like to get input from the nmap community, maybe some insight, on
different ways I could compromise security, and gain root or admin
That is my goal or "purpose". I plan to record each step I take along the
way, and also, list all resources and utilities I may have used to aid
Then to finish it off, I plan on making a report consisting of
countermeasures an admin could take to prevent this same form of attack.

I feel this would go very well in my personal portfolio, when presenting
a potential employer. I'm not asking for someone to do the work for me,
rather, just to give me some insight. I'm willing to totally do my part,
any help or advice would be greatly appreciated...

Thanking you in advance,

Joe Marinaccio
