Hacking at the Hackathon/Hacktoberfest
So word spread around Scott’s neighborhood that he’s having a “hackathon”. One of his neighbors misinterpreted this and came over on Sunday griping at Scott about how we’re hacking their computer. And says “my boyfriend is turning off our wireless at night!” Heh… Yes, their uber-secure wireless network, wide open with SSID “linksys”, and I would assume the default user/password on it. Of course we can only hack things at night, so they’re safe by unplugging it at night! We haven’t even touched their wireless network of course, we’re all the law abiding type (and we have 4-5 of our own with MUCH better signal than one two houses down).
Then last night, this neighbor comes over again, with a spyware infested laptop, even changed the Windows background to a biohazard symbol, and accuses us of “hacking her computer”. Of course we hadn’t touched it, but to be nice Scott fixed it up. It had way more issues than spyware too, it was fully dismantled before all was said and done.
