LordPine : i reckon that security manager is still looking for a new job..

Volvirth : Security Manager: "Huh, what's that, you want to upload the entire source code of our best running mobile device, and you want to send it to an external IP address? SUUURE, JUST TAKE MY PERSONAL CREDENTIALS, HERE, MAKE SURE TO UPLOAD AAALLL OF IT." ... ~Best. Security. Manager. EVER~

Lewis Kelly : Would be nice if you didn't put the annotation boxes over the text at the end

dbsirius : Social engineering at its finest ;)

Heartless : The security manager had ONE job..

Shaun Dreclin : The weakest link in any good security system is the person behind the keyboard

jasperedwin : Would you like to learn??

Finndramere : lmao the title said "How a Hacker Convinced Motorola to Send Him Sour... " i immediately assumed it was sour cream wtf is wrong with me

Pete Smyth : I socially engineered the source code out of them, but it was too easy, so I hacked them to get it again.

piranha031091 : I highly recommend his autobiography, "ghost in the wires". Not often did a book get my heart racing like that!

GogL0L : Humans are the most complex machines, but also the easiest to hack.

Md Shariful Islam 1604064 : 3:41 Totally accurate representation of security breach

Kernels : Remember that the best way to attack is to exploit the human itself.. You don't need these special hacks when you can engineer a person to run your payload. Mainly, this is the reason why people and companies are still being hacked... Just like some people say, best anti virus is common sense.

Max Payne : So. Was avoiding surv and got side tracked hacking motorola mainframes

Mitnick Security Consulting : Hope you enjoyed one of my favorite stories. - KM

Rainbow Dynamix : So uhh, can we get that source code? 😂

UMESH Shridar : This guy should be hired by Motorola

Tomas Tur : This is why milenials with no social skills and short phone calls will be more secure :v

Cyber Infotech : *ILLUSION 100* *SPEECH 100*

Yudi : 3:34 hey, Motherboard. Thanks for the login detail. Can you please send me the link to login too?

JOSE A. G.J : I have been watching science and computer videos for 3 hours now, I can't stop. Someone help me.!!

MegaCaliGrown420 : iPhone 10 of the 1990's? So... Does that mean all those people who owned that phone during that Era thought their shit smelt like fabric softener? Or?

BigBwoyTing : Lmao most of the time the biggest hist are the simplest. Just because people are idiots.

Gabriel Ko : I am still wondering why hackers are imprisoned when they can be so useful

Lawrence Billson : I bet Motorola weren’t using Linux in 1992.

konanoobiemaster : did you get your wig split or cheeks busted?

clout goblin : plead guilty to 3 different felonies and only got 5 years?? i smell a rat 🐀


Ivan Hedz : 3:30 😂🤣"My security manager gave me his personal username and password to the proxy server."

Munden : Kevin Mitnick looks totally different, never would have guessed that was him

over00lord Unknown : Question: Would it have been a crime if he had just stopped after the social engineering? (As in, would it have been illegal if he had just downloaded the file from the FTP server and stopped, instead of hacking into their internal network?)

Abhijeet Mishra : I would totally recommend reading Kevin's Ghost in the Wires

Michael Sangma : Social engineering at its best.

normie x : How come hackers are considered criminals in the US, yet 99% of them spend a few months in jail then get government or private jobs with huge paychecks? Then people complain why there are so many hackers around....really ?!?

Daan : Still love the movie Hackers 2!

Zachary Tyhacz : throughout the whole part of him explaining the phone call - social engineering all i thought was " bruh "

SaltyChip : Lol at all these post I'm reading about how this guy was a boss or genius, yet if you read the ending, then he was neither of those since he got caught and served 5 years in a fed prison. In my book that is called a "Fail."

Some Guy : Colorado, where the greatest American stories come from.

Julião F : Please open the subtitles translation for community contribution.

Adam : Thank you so much for bringing this series back I’ve been waiting since the MySpace episode

rope ropesman : All you gotta do is ask people 😳

Ben C : He sounds like Gabe Newell
