Great article from Krebs on Security

Brian Krebs has a great post on his site about the recent hack of HBGary Federal. There’s a quote from Greg Hoglund that I wanted to call attention to. In describing the hacker’s methodology, Hoglund states: “So it’s a case where the hackers break in on a non-important system…and leveraged lateral movement to get onto systems of interest over time.” The next time you’re told not to worry about a vulnerable system because it is low-impact, has no important data or is otherwise of no interest to an attacker, point them to this article.
