An eye-opener for many is webspy from the dsniff package.  Point your web
browser to your favorite bank for emphasis.

You may wish to include SNIFFing (e.g., dsniff or sniffit) as an area of
interest. This may help highlight the types of sensitive information that is
floating around the clients network, unencrypted, and that this information
can be obtained unknowingly (i.e., no IDS).

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

Ilici R
