Real Life Planning explained

Arrow Image Giving your ideas, thoughts and deductions some structure. Organizing your information, so when you get in action, you know what you’re doing. Real Life Planning explained.



Planning the crime

Hey, are you back again? Or are you new to my real-life hacking articles? If you didn’t read my first article I suggest you do that, before reading this one. Well, I can’t command you so it’s up to you. If you wish to read it, its located here: http://www.hellboundhackers.org/readarticle.php?article_id=564
If you have the time please add a comment, I really appreciate that.

Time for my newest article, this time, I’m going to write something about planning.
Sounds boring? Maybe. Useful? Defiantly!

Planning should be your first step when you attempt a (serious/big) real-life hack. With planning, I mean the following things:

1) Gather information about your target before attempting anything.

2) If you need someone else to cooperate, make sure he’s reliable.

3) If you want to go somewhere, were your not supposed to go to, be sure to have a map. Always have exit routes, always know where to go, and remember, the more exits, the better.

4) Plan B, and maybe C, or even D. Always keep in mind your first attempt might not succeed. Always have a back-up plan, or three.

5) The environment can be very useful. Tree’s can be used to hide, or spy on people. Dustbins can be used to distract someone. Make sure you know how to react on your environment, and how the environment reacts on you. Always keep in mind how things could be of use to you.

6) If you use tools, practice using them beforehand.

7) If you’re planning to do something serious and you need some help, ask an expert. Best place to do this is on the internet, because then you won’t be spotted as you, you’re just ones and zero’s.

8) MAKE SURE you leave no evidence of any kind. Before you try to do something, think about what evidence you could leave.

9) Tell no one about your plans, except your friend who cooperates in the “hack”. You don’t want to end up in jail because one of your “friends” passed information along to the cops.

10) Get organized. Try to keep your information on one place, a safe place.

There are a few things that help you when you’re planning your hack. I will discuss a few.

Maps
“Where do I need to go?”, is a question you don’t want to be bothered with while your (possibly) breaking the law. You want to have escape-routes and more than one preferably.

If you are planning to do something near you, you might already have a map. You can try and create one of your one, with the things on it you need, like escape-routes, useful environment (aka useful stuff lying around) or even the location of security camera’s.

Example of a map:

If you don’t have a map, and you are unable to create a map of your own, and you still need a map you can do a few things:

1) Use software like google earth, or maybe http://maps.google.com, if you are lucky, you can find something useful.
2) Ask around and possibly use SE’ing to obtain the information you need.
3) The third method (my favorite) is exploring. Bring a digital camera (preferably) and make some pictures of the location/stuff you need. Later on, try to create a map (in paint/photoshop, or actually draw it) and add all the things you need.

Now, you have your (personal?) map. You know all the escape-routes and you know how you can manipulate your situation using your environment.

Get information on ANYTHING that crosses your path. This is VITAL for a GOOD “hack”.



Social Interaction

Maybe you need to SE a bit in order for you to reach your goal. Always keep this in mind:

1) People need to trust you, no trust, no gain.
2) You always must know how to react on different responses from the person you try to SE.

There are three (3) ways to get your info.

Personal contact:
1) Make someone curious about something.
2) Gain access to your information by “exploiting” his/her emotions. Any emotion will do.
3) Scare your victim. Blackmail him or something.
Non personal contact:
1) Send an e-mail or build a website and start phishing for information
Steal stuff
1) Steal garbage, notes and anything else what might contain information about your victim.

I could go on for hours about SE’ing, but I won’t. Visit wikipedia for a general description http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_engineering_%28security%29 – and just google for more info on this.

Tools
If you need to use tools, practise on using them beforehand. If you need tools, just buy something at the local shop. Stuff like wire cutters, screwdrivers, flashlights, masks and gloves can be obtained bought at a local shop. (you can also buy ninja weapons - Blumoose)
If you need something more illegal, google is your friend. You can order anything on the internet: lockpicks, (good) gloves, (good) masks or even fingerprint powder.

The day before the crime
Wear old clothes (and shoes). Put all your stuff (tools) in an old bag. Make sure nobody sees you near your target. (try to) Be invisible for one day. Wear masks, gloves and put your tools in easy-to-reach places. Study the map again. Try to calm down your friend, and yourself. Empty your brain. Double check everything, and just go for it!

GO!

Sorry about the extreme usage of Enter, and sorry lock picking wasn't covered in this article. If you found any errors in this article (that includes grammar & spelling) please PM me.

A spelling mistake: CTRL-F for 'VIABLE', it should be VITABLE
Arto_8000on November 26 2006 - 15:47:47
Tree’s can be used to hide, or spy on people
I'm wondering where you pick that Pfft. Otherwise that's great.
zaliferon November 26 2006 - 18:08:36
are you sure that the viable is not supposed to be vitale? makes more sense. :ninja:
BluMooseon November 26 2006 - 18:35:48
Ehem I belive you forgot the most important of tools: the Ninja Star.
spywareon November 26 2006 - 19:17:11

more a reminder then anything new, but an interesting read, never thought of a physical map before, just mental stuff for me..........:right:

Perhaps instead of co-operate, you should clarify, "Get himself in as deep as you are so he can't narc without going down himself"
spywareon November 30 2006 - 13:46:00
I'll quote that in the article Pfft - thx
mr noobon November 30 2006 - 18:33:04
