How do the very best hackers keep themselves secure online? Can we learn to use their security procedures and share them with activists and dissidents who are fighting oppressive governments?
Is This The Girl That Hacked HBGary? – http://blogs.forbes.com/parmyolson/2011/…http://blogs.forbes.com/parmyolson/2011/03/16/is-this-the-girl-that-hack includes an interesting description of how a prominent hacker named Kayla operates online:
… She has no physical hard drive and boots her computer from a microSD card. “I could hide this card anywhere or chew it into a million pieces in a few seconds,” she says by e-mail. She keeps her operating system on a USB stick and uses a virtual machine (VM) to carry out her online shenanigans.
Are clear instructions describing how to construct a bootable microSD card, what operating systems to put on a USB stick and the best VM configurations to use for this posted somewhere?
I tried to use PenDriveLinux on a USB drive but couldn’t get it to work. Still don’t know if it was me, user error, or if the download was intentionally bollixed.
Read http://ReportingWrongdoing.com to understand why.
Simple, clear instructions for doing Super Cyber Security would be a big help to activists and dissidents fighting oppressive governments.
Can you help or point me in the right direction?
