this is a peice of an IM convo earlier today.
amy & i were talking, and, ....uh... your hacking activities have been noticed.
what do you mean?
she was saying that she didn't want to pull you in to you office yet, because she hasn't seen you fucking off herself, right? and then she said, but some of the stuff ppl say he's doing is pretty serious.
wha? like what?
how in the fuck would anybody know i was hacking?
I'm like what do you mean? she says, well, some ppl have metioned that he happens to know alot about "hacking". *at this point she starts talking low, like the friggin walls are bugged or some shit* and well, thats serious. he'll get fired for that. I was like: what? i doubt it. she says, well, thats just what ppl are saying.
I'll admit i fuk off alot. I browse the web alot. But hacking at work? Just because i know alot about it dosen't mean i should get in trouble. damnit this pisses me off.
the only info i could have slipped on was when i was talking w/ some ppl about firewalls & stuff i think....

I once let slip my habits to coworkers, and that was a very bad move. Thankfully I was able to 'repair' most of their newfound knowledge (through a series of very clever social engineering interactions) and restore them to their previous clueless state. Safest for me.
One cannot trust anyone these days.

stay cool - if you haven't done anything wrong (that they know about..) and you've been keeping up with your work you should be fine!

That’s a distinct possibility

What would they actually fire you for if you haven't done anything harmful?
So basically you would be fired for the ignorance of other people. Can you imagine some of the conversations around the office now that he's a known "HACKER!!!!" oh man.
Other than general computer stuff what have you been talking about around there that might of caused this crap?

Actually, I shouldn't joke, that is pretty fukked up. I did not "come out" as a hakker until I had worked for this place for about 4 or 5 years. And then, it was only to trusted friends. now, pretty much everyone knows. Now , they have no idea WHAT A HAKKER REALLY IS, but that is another story altogether. When a break-in or damage issue comes up and they make comments like "ask the hakker here" I respond by explaining what a hakker is and is not. They don't completely buy it, but that is their problem, not mine. My actions prove my words.
But back to you...
The 2600 shirts was a stupid move, but you can still play dumb. If they think you are too DUMB to be a hakker (because all hakkers are geniuses, right?), you can fool them. I would be all "I can't hack, I just know about what I read in the papers". I was talking about OTHER HAKKERS...
this one worked for me at one job: "I wasn't hacking, I was trying to CATCH a HACKER who was trying to get US!". It worked for a while, until I did something else to blow my cover.
And I tell people all the time, don't hack where you work! I lookup 411 at work, then take it home for the real fun. Then, when I really don;t want to be caught, I go to a public location like a cybercafe, a library, or a university lab.
Until they actually *DO* something, just hang back, act REALLY FUKKING DUMB, and social engineer yourself into a zombie employee. Hopefully your "other work" will take off and you wont need that place anyway! Or, you could always quit... <_<
Let me know if you need any help.

Just an afterthought.

I just started a new job 2 months ago and after a month I walked in my my 2600 hat on. Oh man was that dumb. It was at a meeting we had, so every employee was there. One of my co-workers happened to "know what it was" (so he thinks) and in front of everyone he yells, "aahh the hack-attack hat!" At this point I'm just blankly staring at him. He kinda let it drop (acting like he's "in" with me now, and everyone else is some outsider that we need to keep out of the know).
Now, admittedly, I was kind of impressed. I thought maybe he was just in shock to run into someone who also had a clue. This wasn't the case. Turns out he's completely clueless.
He makes it a point to talk to me about topics he has absolutely no clue about, yet acts like he does. Then he blew it by explaining a problem he has with "opening certain file types"... *sigh* I'm back to explaining extentions, the Windows registry, and common sense. Apparently WinXP has some feature to search the internet (M$ database?) for popular filetypes, then offer the user to download the appropriate software? So I offer to burn him a cd of the most widely used programs (stuff like Quicktime, Real Player, Acrobat) and the next day he asks, "so, when I stick this in, it just pops up?"
I have no faith in this area anymore. I need to move.
I'm pretty sure he goes home at night thinking about what I do in my off time. Like sit around hand hack government computers, break into banks, and cut the power to small countries.

"come out" as a hacker!
I did not "come out" as a hakker until I had worked for this place for about 4 or 5 years.
