Shouldn't it be

- found : open SSID LINKSYS with no encryption
- found : ROOT account with 'password' as the password
- found : unpatched server with no AV, etc
- found : network with misconfigured security policy
- found : person with waaaay too much time on their hands

Put a smile on my face nonetheless antdude

Typical rookie mistake lol.

I had someone ask for my help a while ago about his Linux server. He said he was unable to log in to the server root account.

Me: "What was your root password?"
Him: "123456"
Me: "You're the victim of a dictionary attack. Should have picked a better password."
Him: "Shit! What do I do now?"
Me: "Well, you could reset the root password, but you're better off with a nuke-and-pave as you server is compromised."
Him: "..."

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
