We’re often asked, how can I watch or see Social Engineering (SE) in person so I can learn from an expert. The answer is, with difficulty. Until now. In 2010, what appears to be Mossad performed an operation in a foreign country. Most of which were captured on CCTV and published.
We’ve taken the CCTV footage and broken down multiple sections to highlight and show various SE techniques in the wild. These are important, but also simple techniques that really work. They worked so well that they literally got away with murder.
Some key points that will be covered are matching dress styles (to look like a hotel employee), reconnaissance, building your pre-text (and matching outfit to support that pre-text), and interacting with other people (members of the public and hotel staff) to prevent access to areas the attackers wanted to be kept quiet.
All of these are important tools to learn and use, which can help you make a start in social engineering, and are the exact tools I’ve used many times to successfully gain access to places I definitely shouldn’t be.
