Security firm attempted burglary with pretext pen testing!

At 12.30 am of 11 September, two men employees the company's Coalfire, based in Colorado, arrested for theft third degree and possession of State Judicial Administration (SCA) burglary tools. They said they were in the pen testing area.

But let's take it from the beginning. SCA hired one cybersecurity company, for pen testing in Dallas County electronic records. Instead, a few days ago, two men, 29 and 43, were discovered by police in the area trying to break into the entrance.

They rushed to tell the police that they were working at company Coalfire and that their presence at SCA was for that pen testing. Still, they claimed that their patrol around the building was part of the deal, as they were tasked with controlling the system alarm and the response time of the police. However, Dallas County officials were unaware.

As the officers later stated, the two men actually worked for the company hired to control the files. In essence, this would be by attempting unauthorized access to court files by various means in order to identify any vulnerabilities. However, SCA did not provide for the forced entry into one of the complex's buildings.

That is why the two alleged pen testers were immediately arrested and are due to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on 23 September.

Coalfire declined to make any statement on the matter, as it is an active legal matter. But he hastened to point out to SC Magazine that 2001 has done over 10.000 pen testing and all employees work diligently to ensure that the commitments are made with complete integrity and faithfully follow the goals of each client.
