Cracked! Part 4: The Sniffer

In Part 4 of the "Cracked!" series, Noel continues the story of when some Unix boxes that he helped admin were cracked. This article tells how they found the sniffer that the cracker was running on their network and what they did next.

"We had thousands of logins each day from a large selection of places all over the world. Many of these users then connected to other systems using telnet or FTP. Each time one of our users connected to a system somewhere else the cracker had a new door that he could open. A new system that he could crack or just use to store things. To run his port redirector all he needed was a regular user account on a machine and then he had a new system to cover his tracks with. "

I think that the other one will make it though... I was just trying to reword my submission so that people would take it, didn't mean it as spam. Didn't want to be offensive, yet I wanted to start good conversation...

I really like this series, a good read, but I was left wondering something at the end. Has he just given up on trying to catch this guy? Seemed kind of anti-climactic. Good advice at the end, though.

Well. There are two of these submissions in the waiting line now. I vote +1 for this one, due to the interesting quote that was chosen from the written piece.

Honestly, I have not been keeping up with the 'series' since after the 1st 'installment', but I'm voting +1 for it, because, if I was reading the 'series', I would like to know when the next installment was out.

I'm not sure I need an announcement along the lines of "a new part in series X is out." No doubt the series is interesting, but a single pointer to it is probably better than announcing every segment.
