of Cyberlaw Today’s CEOs and management not only need to worry about profit margins, market analysis, and mergers and acquisitions; now they also need to step into a world of practicing security with due care, understanding and complying with new government privacy and information security regulations, risking civil and criminal liability for security failures (including the possibility of being held personally liable for certain security breaches), and trying to comprehend and address the myriad

from lunch or with their lunch; the more traffic in the lobby, the lower the chance of being confronted. If the exterior door is locked, the first decoy rings the bell and says she has an appointment with an employee. She can give the name of a real employee, researched from public sources or social engineering, or just a madeup name; the guard will probably let her in while he tries unsuccessfully to verify her appointment. When the door opens, the decoy holds the door open for the team member

mounting them much easier, because if you insert one later, the tool often will not create the block device (/dev/sdb1) necessary to mount it. In this case, the boot device containing Windows is correctly identified by default, so simply press ENTER to proceed. Step Two Next, the tool tries to guess the location of the SAM file. In Figure 6-2, we can see that it is correctly identified as located in WINDOWS/system32/config. Figure 6-1 Selecting the boot device Chapter 6: Insider Attacks 113

far behind border controls and Internet use policy. Beyond recognizing the immediate threat, perhaps the most single useful defense against the attack scenario described in this chapter is to eliminate LM hashes from both the domain and the local SAM files. With LM hashes present on the local workstation and shared local Administrator passwords, an attack such as this can be carried out very quickly. Without the LM hashes, the attack would take much longer and the gray hat penetration testers

(n), make it a primary partition (p), label it partition 1 (1), accept the default start and stop cylinders (press ENTER for both prompts), and write out the partition table (w). 2. With the disk properly partitioned, create a file system and mount the disk. If you want to use the Linux default file system type (ext3), the command to create a file system is mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda1. The disk should then be available for use by creating a mount point (mkdir / mnt/vbox) and mounting the disk (mount
