Every single phish we received from the student teams during @CollegiateSectf was better crafted and more sophisticated than this real phish...

...I wonder what happens when you call the number...

Time to spring the trap from the inside!

They wanted me to go to:


That should be fun.
Oops. Typed it wrong.
Oops. Put a space in it. That brought up google search.
Should I press the first link?
No. New tab. Lets try again.
Ok. Typed it wrong. New Tab?

Ok. Care on one tab and support on the other?

Close everything down. Try again.
You didn't want me to shut down my computer? Just the browser?

Ok. Turning the computer back on now.
How is my day?

Oh its good. Gonna hang out with the guys at the VFW.

You know... ever since I retired and my wife passed away...

Hello? Hello?

They hung up.

How am I going to pay this McAfee bill?

To be root is to have power over your entire system.

To control every aspect of it. To turn your system outward with the full force of its capabilities.

To create and destroy and alter any and all aspects of your system, is to be root.

More importantly, to be root is to fully accept and be responsible for the consequences of your own actions.

Failures of your system are your own failures.

The mismanagement, the overextending, the ill used... there is no own else to blame for your own actions...

but yourself.
The failures are your own failures, sure.

And with it, the successes are your own successes as well.

In being root, you weep for your failures & cheer for your successes, feeling each fully and thoroughly.

For what else do we have, but the fruit of our own labor & each other?

Speaking of OT Red Teaming....

It's a bit of a... well... hmm... It can be bit of a thing.

IT systems have been built up to be able to receive non-standard communications. They, ideally, can receive an unexpected communication and respond with a graceful fail.
A big reason for this is that IT environments, and the internet at large, is built on top of many different brands and types of devices.

A big shift happened way back when with the concept of IBM compatible devices and OSes that were not brand specific (eg Windows and *nix)
Different general purpose computers, running different operating systems, running on different brands of hardware...

...all had to talk to each other.

That's a tall order.

So how did we deal with it?

I find myself moving forward in this new phase of my career.

I'm finding that I very much enjoy testing and securing Industrial Control Systems (ISC) & Operational Technology (OT) environments.

I'm finding I very much enjoy growing out internal teams & programs.

Prior to this, I had the opportunity to test the full scope of logical, physical, and social avenues within IT environments.

And that was good.
Prior to this, I had the opportunity to grow out and train teams and build initiatives and programs, both in consulting firms and internal corporate teams.

And that was good as well.
