Your fairly vulnerable online with the information you divulge and the topic of Social Engineering is something I will be pursuing with interest in future (undergrad Psych). I just ripped this complete stranger apart in 5 minutes with information that is readily available to anyone. How safe do you think you are against someone who might actually want to harm you?
Ok its 06:09am in the morning
california 22:00 pm at the time well say 21:45..pm
So the chances of getting talking to a random male teenager in claifornia are high, you didn't social engineer anything, what you did was guess with the use of a time zone... :roll eyes:
If your going to start some phsy babble first of come, credible information would help. Secondly you used steps which are known as cold reading, and a slightly passive aggressive tone on a younger person, and a curious mind would sit there and listen.
If you turned round and said that to an adult and pulled thats stunt Id tell you togo away. You just got some kid inexperienced enough to listen to you.
Its all true I hear that pedophiles can learn your address through your IP address then get you online and once they see your online they can give you a powerful electric shock through your computer keyboard which will knock you out. They can then unlock your door using their hacking skills on your computer enter your house and take you away to molest you. They can even bring you back before you wake up and you will be none the wiser. It happens to adults too. I know this is true because it happened to a friend of mines friend and is the only possible explanation as to how images of him got up on that gay porn site.
and according to brasseye they also wear tops with the body of a child on it to make them appear younger online
I think you are overestimating your 'skills' a little. How many times did you get it wrong before this attempt?
OMG..............I'm never gonna go on FB chat again
That was waaaaay too scary!!
That's such an internet response
Depends on the mood, I'll agree or disagree with what these chat-roulette randomers.
If someone wanted to harm you, there's easier ways than online chat, such as "random" surveys.
Have a read of Kevin Mitnicks books "The Art of Deception"; it has s a nice read on Social Engineering.
You should be a Superhero, Nulty... Social Engineering Protection Man, fearlessly protecting the youth of today from the dangers of social engineering, with the the tagline... "look after yourself online kids".
social engineering is getting into places or getting confidential information, not "ha ha you're a teenage male you stupid kid BYE"
Leverage a credit card number out of someone in a chat and then I'll be impressed.
