"What's It Like Being A Rocket Scientist?"
From the same friend of mine who told me the story of The Inside Job. All names have been changed to protect the guilty.
(10:50:09 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: Hey Cy... do you know how to hack people over battle.net on Star Craft?
(10:50:38 AM) 'Cy': ...You're asking the Security Operations Manager how to hack?
(10:50:46 AM) 'Cy': Please tell me you're high.
(10:52:09 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: A guy named Goblin on Star Craft keeps harrassing me and my buddies, he keeps taking over our private channel too... I want to change his password... hehehe...
(10:52:45 AM) 'Cy': Well in that case. Got Windows XP?
(10:53:00 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: Yes
(10:53:10 AM) 'Cy': All right, know how to get into Command prompt
(10:53:18 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: huh?
(10:53:28 AM) 'Cy': Go to Start, Run, type in command and press ENTER
(10:53:55 AM) 'Cy': Should put you in a black window with white text
(10:54:04 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: got it
(10:54:10 AM) 'Cy': Then put this in. This'll prepare him for whacking
(10:54:15 AM) 'Cy': shutdown -s -t 5
(10:54:20 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: ok
(10:54:26 AM) 'Cy': Press ENTER and watch the fireworks
(10:55:27 AM) Wannabe_Script_Kiddy: ....
(10:55:30 AM) 'Cy': Nighty-night
This is like the classic story where the hacker gets his target's IP address 127.0.0.1 and runs a file deletion tool against that address.
