Forensics on an email server
Jeber posted a topic in Security & NetworkingI have a friend (no, really) who has found out that a third party has access to his work emails. This man's a lawyer, so this is a fairly serious issue. The emails were sent from his work server to another attorney. His server is on a privately owned domain and maintained by a friend of his. We don't know what setup the other attorney has for her email. I told him, and I hope I was correct in my advice, that the maintainer of the server should be able to look at the logs for that domain and see which IP addresses logged in during the month in question. Eliminating the IPs that are known should expose the unknown. Turns out the server logs are only kept for 60 days, and these emails were from December of last year. Of course they could have been accessed any time since then, but we'd only be able to find the culpret if the access was within the last 60 days. So without discusiing hacking techniques, what advice can I give him on how best to determine how those emails were obtained? I suspect if the hacks were made more than two months ago he may never find out who did it or how. What are your suggestions for methods to harden their server against future attacks? Obviously, being lawyers, their emails are frequently very sensitive and I believe they would spare no expense to make sure this doesn't happen again.

smartgrid Hacking Expert David Chalk Joins Urgent Call to Halt Smart Grid
Guest posted a topic in Security & NetworkingHacking Expert David Chalk Joins Urgent Call to Halt Smart Grid - MarketWatch SmartGrid 101 Take Back Your Power - ThePowerFilm.org - There is a video with David Chalk on this site. Let me know how it is please. I can't watch it. I am very happy that an expert has come forward to openly not only discuss this but make it understood in no uncertain terms that the 100% that it is an inevitability that in today's world, the SmartGrid being hacked is a foregone conclusion it has no protection AND is on the Internet! It is a cool technology but too dangerous in a terror, malware and more often than not, being part of a very unfair world. A very bad combination.
