I took this photo with my phone... No photoshopping. I do hope I haven't posted this before.



This one is a mystery pic... What is going on here and why is it a problem?

I just wanted to congratulate you on passing the Vt. exam without clicking on the "gross thing" LJ-cut. Way to go!

Pic #1: "Body piercing saved my life"? See, I'd have to go to the service just to find out what this was about...oh, wait. I think I just figured it out.

Pic #2: Ummm... Flying Spaghetti Monster?

The second picture is of someone's network router with an unauthorized wireless access point patched in. This allows the hacker access to the network from nearby either for free Internet access or as a portal for accessing network resources (i.e., data).

Data security starts with physical security. The installation shown in the photo was in an unlocked closet; someone thought the gear to complicated to be insecure or didn't realize the possible exploitation.

The other thing is that this sort of hacked installation would go undiscovered for a long time in a place without full-time IT staff that understand the network topology.

...someone's network router with an unauthorized wireless access point patched in.

That would be the box dangling there on the left, correct?

My office's physical security means our networking equipment is under my desk...
