Keeping Your Hacking Identity Secret: How to Become a Ghost Hacker #4
Today its another installment of my series which is something many of you enjoy, so here is part 4.
Many things fall into place when one has to successfully become a ghost hacker, and one of the key things is what you're telling people. When you are communicating online you have two options, either don't say anything at all, or give them completely false information.
Going with option one will most definitely spark interest to people whose intentions are to bring hackers to justice, so you might as well give them what they want, but you didnt guarantee them that would you're giving them will be correct information. That'll be their job to determine, so let's make it very difficult for them
And it's important that you don't reveal anything that can be remotely connected to you in any way what so ever. It's difficult but it's great to take these types of measures if you have to. For example Dead Pirate Roberts did this too I have been informed. Take notes people
This is also very important that you keep it a secret to everybody. Now this is where it can get very complex, because we all have jobs and education probably, and family friends and so on. So in the end you'll only have a few hours a day to come on your secret identity, so to get online at completely random times will be a tough task for some because of that, but for those who have that possibility shouldn't take it for granted.
Your buddies will not be able to determine where in the world you live if you come online at completely random time, with no pattern at all.
To ellaborate, what I mean here is, if the situation should occur, you have to be able to run and leave everything behind. Think of it like you have a bag under your bed in case someone should track you down, you grab it and some money and take off.
Same exact scenario here. Have your depature ready if necessary.
This is something very interesting, and something law enforcement does all the time and it even tricked our old friend Dead Pirate Roberts.
When you have a black market business going or any sort of illegal activity, law enforcement will be watching you and attempt to track you down. But usually you have some buddies to help you run your illegal activity which brings me to the Ultimate Advice.
Don't bring new people close to your business
DPR was approached by a new user on Silk Road and he didnt think any of it and communicated with this individual and forgot that anybody could be sitting on the other end. And Unfortunately for him it was an FBI agent, which is believed to have helped in the arrest of DPR
Regardless, what i'm saying here is, trust the ones you have from the beginning because at some point it'll be dangerous to bring new people in your inner circle.
I don't think I have much more to cover for this series, there might be a some more additional pointers, and i'll put them in the final post.
