God damnit. We actually have a Goldmine server.

I got to deal with that a couple jobs ago. I was so happy when the Sales VP changed and the first thing he did was go to SalesForce.

Goldmine isn't so bad. Just a SQL backend and it's relatively inexpensive.

Welp, I guess we got Kevin Mitnicked today.

I had just gotten off the phone and a couple of users crept up to me, wide-eyed. One almost in tears. "Mojok, something is wrong with our phone system. A bunch of us are getting calls from some super pissed-off people screaming "STOP CALLING US!"

https://www.drvoip.com/blog/shorete...fun-and-profit/


"So lets put this simple ShoreTel hack together Ė the hackers gained control of a voice mail box, then called into the ShoreTel Voice Mail system with a spoofed Caller ID and the left a brief message. Calling back into the system, this time to check their voice messages and then hit the ďreturn callĒ option key, which then placed a call to an International Middle East location all billed to the the ShoreTel system owner and showing up only as a Call Detail Record owned by the Automated Attendant."

In our case these bad men weren't calling a middle east location, they were... calling and hanging up in some cases? And some of the irate people calling in here said when they picked up someone was on the line trying to sell them insurance or scam them or some poo poo.

I opened the Shoretel trunk test tool and all our trunks were lighting up like Christmas trees as these vermin used their autodialer on us. It was incredible, never experienced anything like that before.

I don't miss administrating ShoreTel at all. Not. One. Bit.

Some of my customers print barcoded credentials on a sticker that they put in their shop floor PCs. One of those stickers, with the plaintext clearly legible, made it into one of my company's marketing videos.

I spotted it before anyone noticed and used them, but the marketing team had the vid on the corporate YouTube channel for two months before they sent it to us. It then took two days after I raised the alarm for them to take the video down.

My experience is getting a quote from them and my boss saying they're too expensive.

He wasn't wrong, their product does way more than what we needed.

Are you trying to accomplish a specific task, or just have a general need for workflow tools in sharepoint?

It was just given to me today. Apparently we purchased it and IT will own it going forward, and I own it in IT. Whee? I have very little SharePoint experience, but that's never stopped me before!

I can't believe I'm going to turn down a job offer because the team I'd be working on is full of tech bros. I met them in the interview and I couldn't get the idea out of my head that everyone has drank soylent at some point or another. The entire team is balls deep in bitcoin, they're obsessed with pubg and fortnite, and although they're allowed to watch Twitch at work, all they watch is Dr. Disrespect. I work with a few guys like that right now and it's obnoxious, I can't imagine an entire team of them. Right now I work with a bunch of middle aged republicans and it's pretty great honestly, as long as we don't talk politics.

It's a good company to work for but I think I'll lose my mind within six months on that team.

From an Exchange rule. We created an exchange rule in an attempt to reduce phishing e-mails masquerading as our executive team. The results have been really positive and I almost cheer when I see a bunch of phishing e-mails that didn't make it to a users inbox.

I am literally implementing something like this tomorrow morning. Mine is really basic, just checking the name field of the email and if it is from an external source, moving it over to Junk Mail. What did you do?

Larchesdanrew update:

Our PR guy had a nervous breakdown and specifically cites the director as the cause.

After nearly 3 years I have finally completed the card access project.

The Director is about two weeks away from accepting a position as superintendent in another city

He has become unbearable and his most likely replacement is the nicest guy I have ever met.

I have been offered a job as technology director for the engineering school at a college. It pays $20k more than I make here with regular raises and bonuses. Word is that itís extremely laid back and they have more money than they know how to spend. Iíll also have employees again

Things are shaping up nicely.

Well, everyone else involved said the email seems really fishy. I told my manager and the director about it. The person who originally got the email and I are doing Symantec full scans and theyíre trying to reach out to the vendor by phone. This isnít how I expected to spend the first half of today.

Yes I know AV is worthless, but thatís what Iíve been told to do so Iím covering my rear end.

Do the headers look legit? Is it a new payment method for this vendor? We've seen some interesting stuff recently, the spoofers are getting better at some parts but still include lines like "Our CFO Mrs Lisa" with a Gmail address...
