THERE’S SOMETHING “HUMAN”TO

SOCIAL ENGINEERING Aakash Mishra….GIVES US A GLIMPSE AT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SKILL OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING

www. t heha c k er news . c om 01| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


Pretexting Pretextingistheabilityto createafalsescenario thatwouldmakeatargeted victim feel comfortable giving you information.it is more than simple lying.Often it is impersonating an individual that the targeted victim perceives has the right to know the information. it could be a police officer,bank personnel,tax authorities,or insurance investigators.Sometimesallthatisneededisanauthoritativeandearnestsounding voice.

Diversion theft This technique originated in the east end of London and thieves who employ this technique are well rehearsed,and are extremely effective. Basically,itisthejobofthesocialengineerto divertgoodsto adifferentlocation.Theengineermustpersuadetheadministratororpersonnel ofatransportorcouriercompanyto issueinstructionsforthedriverto redirecttheconsignmentorload.

Phishing Phishing is a popular emailscam thatfraudulentlyobtains privateinformation. An emailsentfrom an officiallooking business warning ofsome direconsequenceifthepersonalinformation is notprovided. Phishing can involvecreating websites thatresemblea legitimateorganizations site which convinces the targetitmustbe okayto give financial orpersonalinformation.

ivrorphonephishing This technique uses the phone to recreate a legimate sounding business that the intended target is persuaded to call from an email or letter. One technique uses voice prompts to get password or account information or the person willbe transferred to the socialengineer posing as thecustomerservicerepresentiveforquestioning. phonephishing is also callvishing. www. t heha c k er news . c om 02| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


Baiting This technique requires the engineer to make a malware infected floppy disk,CD rom,orusbflash driveinaplaceanintendedtarget(s)mightpick itup outofcuriosityor greed. the titles maybe corporate information thatwould appearto allow thetargetinformation thatwould givefinancialgain.Howeverpresented,oncethediskisinsertedtheusersinstalls malware giving the engineer unfettered access to the targets pc or a company’s internalcomputernetwork.

Quid pro quo Quid pro quo is simply “something for something,� in other words the social engineer calls the targeted victim and offers something,maybe money,chocolates,merchandiseforpasswordorotherpersonalinformation.Surprisingly,largenumbers ofvictims readilygivethis information believing theyaregetting something in return.

SocialEngineering God Father

Kevin David Mitnick Kevin David Mitnick (born October 6,1963)isacontroversialcomputer hacker and convicted criminalin theUnited States. Mitnick was convicted in the late 1990s of illegally gaining access to computernetworks and stealing intellectual property.Though Mitnick has been convicted ofcomputerrelatedcrimesandpossessionof severalforged identification docu ments,his supporters argue that his punishmentwas excessive. www. t heha c k er news . c om 03| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


Kevin Mitnickbegan socialengineeringorperhapsdiscoveredhisfirstengineerable situation at the age of 12.He realized he could bypass the punchcardsystem usedfortheLosAngelesbussystem:bybuyinghisown punch,he could get free bus rides anywhere in the greater LA area. Social engineering became his primary method of obtaining information, whether it be user names and passwords,modem phone numbers or any numberofotherpieces ofdata. In high school,hewas introduced to phonephreaking,theactivityofmanipulatingtelephoneswhichwasoftenusedtoevadelongdistancecharges forhis benefit. Mitnickbrokeinto hisfirstcomputernetworkin 1979,when afriendgave him thephonenumber for theArk,thecomputer system atDigitalEquipment Corporation (DEC) used for developing their RSTS/E operating system software.Hebrokeinto DEC' scomputernetworkandcopiedDEC' s software,forwhich hewaslaterconvicted.Thiswasthefirstofaseries ofrun-ins with thelaw.

Acts byKevin Mitnick: 1.)Using theLos Angeles bus transfer system to getfreerides Evading theFBI 2.)Hacking into DEC system(s)to view VMS sourcecode(DEC reportedly spent$160,000 in cleanupcosts) 3.)Gaining fulladmin privileges to an IBM minicomputer attheComputer Learning Centerin LA 4.)Hacking Motorola,NEC,Nokia,Sun Microsystemsand Fujitsu Siemens systems Kevin Mitnickis now a professionalcomputer consultant(doing business as MitnickSecurityConsulting,LLC).

Interview with thecreatorofthesocial engineering toolkit,David Kennedy!

THN Editor :First,tellus aboutyourself,your experienceand whatyou haveproduced in thesocialengineering field? David :I' m a Director of Information Security for a Fortune 1000 company.Don' tletthetitlefoolyou,beingaDirectorjustmeansIcan focus on the stuffIlove which is breaking things.Ihave a heavy penetration testing and exploitation background dating back to the military intelligencedaysaswellasasecurityconsultantworkingwithanumberofFortune500 and 1000 companies.As a penetration tester a few years back, Social-Engineeringwasamajorportion ofwhatIneededto do in orderto gain access either physically or through social-engineering attacks againstorganizations.It' sbeen ablastworking in thesecuritycommunity and contributingasmuch asIcan to open source.Myphilosophyin lifeis IlovewhatIdo and whereIworkand mygoalis to giveas much backto thesecuritycommunityandmakethem successfulandhelpifIcan.I' m one of the founders of DerbyCon,a security conference in Louisville Kentucky,creator ofthe Social-Engineer Toolkit,Fast-Track,member ofthe Social-Engineer crew/podcast, and main blog post at http://www.secmaniac.com. THN Editor :Please explain what Social Engineering is and how we use SocialEngineering? David :Social-Engineering simplyputis themanipulation ofhuman behavior to achievesometask.For us as penetration testers,Social-Engineering can beleveraged in multiplecapacities to compromisean organization and gain accesswhich typicallycircumventsthemajorityofsecuritycontrolsin placein an organization.Forme,IleverageSocial-Engineeringon a regular basis to identify weaknesses within my security program and user awareness.Mostorganizations arespending a ton ofmoneyon the latest shiny technology that promises to fix their security problems whileourhumans arefinding theeasiestwayto getin. www. t heha c k er news . c om 05| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


THN Editor:Whatarethebestways to perform SocialEngineering? David:Social-Engineeringtakessometimetolearnandsomethingthatrequirespractice.There' sno easyansweron whatthebestwayto social-engineer a victim.When I' m going after an organization Ilook atwhatthey have on the Internet,who the personnelis,their language,whatcompanies they own,and as much information Ican possibly learn from open source intelligence (osint).I' ll develop a pretext (my attack)based on what Ilearn and practice it before hand to make sure it' s perfect and flawless.A lot of times leveraging social networking sites in order to learn a lotofinformation aboutmytargets is beneficialand leveraging trustwith people theytrustcan always make thatlittle bitofa difference. THN Editor :Whataretherecentusages ofSocialEngineering,such as the,HBgaryhackbyanonymous OR RSA hack? David :Ithinkthemostrecentonewould betheRSA hackwherethedetailsarestillabitvaguebutleveragedspear-phishingin orderto target aselectamountofpeoplewith aFlash zero day.We' veseen theseattacks becomemoreandmoreprevalentandsomethingwehavebeenpreachingon theSocial-Engineer.org podcastfor a largetimethatthesetypes ofattacksarecomingandit' sgoingto besomethingreallydifficultto protect against. THN Editor :How did "SET (SocialEngineering Toolkit)� come about and Whydid you developit? David :When SETwas firstconceived Chris Hadnagyand Iweresitting in achatroom on IRC talkingtogetherandhementionedhewasstartingsocial-engineer.org to try to bring more awareness and education to the community about social-engineering and how it relates directly to security.We started chatting and found that there really was no tool out thereforsocial-engineeringandsomethingthatwasahugegapforusas penetration testers.Outofthattalk,araw version ofSETwas created www. t heha c k er news . c om 06| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


which was reallybasic in nature,ithad a mass mailer,somePDF exploits and thatwas reallyit.Even with its early,earlyrelease itgota ton of positivefeedback and ithas justgrown from there.Inever thoughtfor oneminutethatSETwouldbecometheleadopen sourcetoolin social-engineering and something thatpenetration testers leverageon a regular basis,it' s quiteimpressiveand I' m humbled byit. THN Editor:Is SocialEngineering dangerous ? David:Social-EngineeringisextremelydangerousandTHE largestthreat thatIseein information securityto date.Asmentioned before,wehavea ton of technology in place that is specifically designed to stop buffer overflows (or detect them),catch malware (kind ofa joke at this point), and protect our web applications.Yet our user population is still completelyvulnerableand clueless on thesigns ofabreach.A finebalance between technology and user awareness needs to be accomplished and it' ll never be 100 percent but it' ll be a lot better than an uneducated userpopulation. THN Editor:How does someonemasterSocialEngineering ? David :Social-Engineering requires you to changeyour behavior,remove yourbarriers,and startto manipulatehumans to do yourbidding.Iknow that sounds awful,but use Social-Engineering in a positive way at your organization to seeifyou can affectadecision in yourmanner.Read and learn from studies on behavioralanalysis and how humans interactwith oneanother.Usethesocial-engineer.org framework to help you getthe knowledgeto expand on.Ultimatelyit' sgoing to beyourselflearning the techniques and applying them on a regular basis and be able to manipulateyourown behaviorto getadesired outcomefrom someoneelse. www. t heha c k er news . c om 07| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


THN Editor:Giveusan overview ofthesocialengineeringtoolsandwhat itoffers. David :TheSocial-EngineerToolkit(SET)is an open-sourcepython driven arsenalfor penetration testers aimed at testing how wellan organization can withstand a social-engineer attack.SET has a number ofattack vectors specifically aimed at targeting the user population.SET aids a penetration tester in social-engineer attacks however doesn' tperform it forthem.It' suptothepenetrationtestertoperform intelligencegathering and form their pretextin order to haveasuccessfulattack.SEThas a number oftools and attacks including theSpear Phishing Module,Web AttackVectors,TeensyUSB Hid,WirelessAttackVectors,andanumberof additionalcapabilities and features that make SET unique when it comes to social-engineering and penetration testing.SETis being used internationallybypenetration testersandacriticaltoolto them in everycapacity as social-engineering is a highly important attack vector to leverage during normaltesting. After that great interview with the creator of the social engineering toolkit,David Kennedy,iwondered how many readers really understand thedifferencein socialengineering as opposed to hacking.

Testyourunderstanding On SocialEngineering See ifyou can identify what technique ofsocialengineering was used in thefollowing examples. (Answers atend ofarticle) A)You receive an email where the sender is the manager or someone on behalfofthesupportdepartmentofyour bankand is presenting a problem thatcan beresolved with you giving personalinformation aboutyour account. B)A person representing your company contacts the shipping company thatdelivers your merchandiseand convinces them thattheymustdeliveracertain deliveryto adifferentaddress. C)You getan automated voicecallfrom afamiliarcompanyorbankasking you to key in password information or other pertinent information. You could betransferred from this callto alivecustomerservicerepresentive. D)You arewalking byyour bank and on thesidewalk you find a computer diskthatistitled “accountsover100k.” Thismakesyou curiousand you insertitinto yourcomputerto read theinformation. E)An attacker calls random numbers ata companyclaiming to becalling back from technicalsupport.Eventuallytheywillhitsomeonewith a legitimate problem,grateful that someone is calling them back to help them.Theattackerwill“help”solvetheproblem and in theprocess have theuser givepasswords or accountinformation or typein commands on theircomputerthatgivetheattackeraccess orlaunch malware. www. t heha c k er news . c om 09| Ma y2011| I s s ue02


Facing thefacts Thetruth is socialengineering is rarelydiscussed.Peoplemostlyliketo talkaboutcracking and phreaking. Let’s bring social engineering out of the closet and onto discussion blogs.Sharing information,learning thetechniques and knowing how to protectyourselffrom socialengineering is thebestwayto beskilled in this method ofhacking.
