The Hack is On - Unit Assessment
This is where 'rubber meets the road' or in our case fingers hit the keyboard. The preceding exercise concerned the preparation of a plan and it's time to put that plan into practice.
Your teacher will provide a suitable wireless dongle. You have to break in to the target. Get to the Documents folder and 'capture the flag' all without being detected. The 'flag' may or may not be hidden, though when you see it, it will be obvious.
As this is an ethical hack, remember to record each step as the plan progresses and the result of each stage so that others can:-
- Replicate each step to confirm the results to make sure that it is a genuine lapse in security.
- Demonstrate that the loophole has been secured after changes.
