If surf the Internet daily for hours, then you surely know that you have to follow a basic rule: Never provoke hackers . However, this guy learned this basic rule from the reverse:
Do not cause a hacker to ruin your life.
You will surely wonder Why? Because it is too easy for them to do so.
So Kevin Roose, the hero of our story, has asked some of the best hackers at DEFCON to do the worst they can. But he did not calculate how hackers would come so hard against him. It took just two weeks to take control of Roose's email accounts, his camera, his bank accounts, his professional and personal details.
The hackers had the opportunity to steal all his wealth and its assets. In addition to the economic aspect of the matter, they could have destroyed Roose completely by locating all his dark secrets using a combination of social engineering, phishing and hacking devices.
The hackers they met at the DefCon hacking conference in Las Vegas said they could even leave him homeless (apparently taking all his money) and created a 13 page folder for himself.
