18 year old charged with hacking draft kings

Last year,, I posted a Kim Komando article about Draft Kings. Here is the blog post with the news about their hack.

Today, as I continue to catch up on Mastodon and the landscape, we learn that an 18-year-old was recently charged.

The suspect’s name is Joseph Garrison who says that “hacking shit is fun and I won’t get caught.”

He was interviewed last year, and the IP address used was linked to his parent’s home, says the article.

Joseph used a method known in this industry called Credential Stuffing. In short, I could either buy data, or be given data to do a specific job. That data could be a username/password pair in most cases. I could then as an example, try these pairs on other sites to see what I could get in to.

Joseph even had instructions that were made available on how to extract the funds from Draft Kings. That image, for those who can se, are in the article.

The article comes from PC Magaznie. Its titled 18-Year-Old Charged With Hacking 60,000 DraftKings User Accounts and he may in fact be our moron of the podcast. We’ll see.

At the time the notes were done, we didn’t have one, but there could always be a last minute one. As a side note, credential stuffing is linked on our terms section of email host security along with other articles, books, companies and more. This term is one of many actors use to get at your data. There are lots of terms like this one which might need to be familiarized by the reader, so check out the site and see if something peaks your interest.

Happy reading!
