Re: Hacking demo - most spectacular techniques

I try to keep it simple. I setup an IIS 5 box and a firewall. configure
the firewall to allow only port 80 in but everything out. Then just use
the null.printer overflow. Simple effective and short. No need to drive
the GUI or anything most people just get it. If you want to get more
elaborate setup a second box running for fav DBMS then "find" the
username and password in some ASP code on the newly hacked IIS box and
use the tools installed on the www server (or upload them to attach to
the DB and make quires. I have run the exact demo numerous times for
both semi-technical and non-technical groups and it seems to work well.

Hi all,

We intend to make a short demonstration of hacking as
part of a longer seminar with more than 100 IT
managers, vice-presindents, and other high-level
morons. The goal is to explain how easy is to hack an
unsecured system or network.

For them to understand and to realize how just only an
unsecured computer could lead to compromise of an
entire business we need to show some hacking examples
real spectacular.

So I need your help to make a top short list. I will
insert here my humble opinion, but I expect more from
all of you experienced pen-testers.

1. Remote VNC install - GUI session on target machine
2. BO2K or Subseven
3. Port redirection with fpipe - a firewall is not
always enough
4. Remote shell with netcat
5. Null session - information gathering with no right
