Mr. Traffic Hack

Tor is not like the encryption applications such as GPG, Signal, or WeChat where two people can communicate securely. It has a high level of anonymity. But to achieve this, it requires a network of users to run. These users run Tor nodes which other users can use to send their traffic through. To be specific, it requires at least three nodes to work (though it requires many more to actually achieve anonymity). However, simply proxying traffic through three nodes will not provide anonymity as an attacker could compromise any of the nodes and work their way back to the original user.

Mr. Traffic Hack


An artist in Berlin, Simon Weckert, put his trust into Google Maps as well, that is until he noticed a strange occurrence during a parade. Google Maps showed a traffic jam in the area, despite there being no cars in the road. His first instinct was that the accumulation of people in the roadway had tricked Google into thinking there were vehicles in the road, all based on the locations of the smartphones.

This led Mr. Weckert to do an experiment of his own. He wanted to see if he alone could trick Google Maps into thinking there was a traffic jam on a roadway without any traffic. That is exactly what he did. Mr. Weckert gathered 99 cell phones, borrowed from friends and family or rented. He made sure all of the phones were using Google Maps and had their location services turned on and then he put them in a little red wagon. He then pulled the cell phones around in his wagon on the same street and in random patterns throughout the dya. The goal was to watch for Google to recognize a traffic jam. He said it took about an hour for Googles location services to catch on and show a jam, however once it recognized the traffic jam, its services started diverting traffic as it would in a real traffic jam.

The other potential problem with hackers is once they hack the Google Systems, it gives them access to location information for each and every person in the world who utilize Google Maps. The implications of that are huge. A hacker, with the right skill set, could potentially access information on public officials, celebrities, or lay people. With that information, there is no telling the harms that could be done.

So, is Elliot's hack really technically feasible the way he says he did it? Couldn't it be some kind of counter-propaganda to undermine Tor and its efficiency (especially given that anti-Tor proponents' main argument is that Tor can be used to cover up criminal activities)? Or maybe this is just some kind of simplification for dramatization's sake (which would be a little lame, even though I guess most of the show's viewers are not tech-savvy)? Or maybe I'm missing something about Tor's general flow of operation?

The hack isn't possible the way he described it.First he implied that the guy was using hidden services to hide his servers, then he said that he was able to mess with his traffic at the exit nodes.Hidden services don't have exit nodes; it's encrypted end-to-end, hence the hack is just gibberish.

If he was using regular Tor then it might be possible provided the guy's traffic was unencrypted (e.g. HTTP instead of HTTPS).To do the hack he could do something like insert code into the page that sends back sensitive information such as IP address to the server which the exit node would then be able to see and would use to deanonymise the client, then he would hope that the guy visits illegal websites before he switches exit nodes.But as you said, for this to be possible he would have to have his exit node selected for use by the guy, which is unlikely if he's just running one.

It is true that hidden services don't use exit nodes, but from what was mentioned in the scene, it can be implied that the local traffic from Ron to his servers (where a HS was hosted) is what Elliot must have sniffed. Elliot is physically at the coffee shop and on the same connection (the gigabit connection mentioned) used by Ron. It's rather implied that all he had to do was compromise Ron's local servers regardless of his Tor usage.

By the movie dialogue, Elliot must have compromised into Ron's system and accessed the files. It can also mean he could then have created few exit nodes to monitor further incoming traffic from the servers.

Yes! Tor Makes Anonymity but as he said whoever is in control with the exit node is also in control with the traffic. It means He can Intercept Traffic between the entry node and the client and also between the exit node and the server. which will help him figure out what's happening.

Although there were many elements that made the hack successful, such as Darlene developing a zero-day exploit (I'll showing you how to do that in a future article) that none of the intrusion detection systems, firewalls, or antivirus softwares detected, Elliot also made certain that the hack could not be traced back to him by using proxies.

Early in the last episode, Lenny, the former boyfriend of Elliot's therapist, Krista, reveals to Krista that he had been hacked by Elliot. He points out that Elliot is nearly untraceable as he uses a proxy from Estonia. In this tutorial, I will show how Elliot bounced his attack off an Estonian (or other) proxy in order to make his hacks untraceable.

As you know, whenever you visit (or hack) a website or server over the Internet, your unique Interpret Protocol (IP) address travels with you. It would then be very easy to trace the source of an attack by simply tracing the source IP address.

Hackers, though, often use proxies to hide or obscure their IP address. In this way, they send their traffic to an intermediary proxy, who then sends the traffic on to the destination, replacing the source IP address with its own. In this way, the malicious traffic appears to be coming from the proxy and not the original sender.

Before I start, I want to point out that there are multiple types of proxies. One of the more popular, anonymous proxies is Tor. Although Tor is effective in anonymizing your traffic from Google and other commercial tracking, it is not effective in anonymizing your traffic from law enforcement, especially the NSA.

As Elliot points out in the pilot episode, when he is explaining to the coffee shop owner who is also a child pornographer, "Whoever's in control of the exit nodes is also in control of the traffic, which makes me the one in control." He owns the exit node, owns the traffic, and hence, the identity of the users.

When you do so, it shows you the simple proxychains syntax. Basically, after setting up proxychains, all you need to do is precede the command you want to run with the command "proxychains" and all of your Internet traffic will go through your chosen proxy. As we will see later in this tutorial, if we want to browse the Web with our browser, we can simply start our browser by preceding it with proxychains, such as:

Instead, let's try the list of Russian proxies. Many hackers use Russian proxies as EU and U.S. law enforcement do not have jurisdiction in Russia. This means there is little or no chance of tracing their identity.

By default, proxychains is setup to use Tor. As Elliot expressed in episode one, he who controls the exit node of Tor controls the traffic. Elliot is certainly aware that the NSA and law enforcement know this as well and would not want to use Tor. To disable Tor, simply put a comment mark (#) before line #64.

Hey guys, i was trying to use proxy with this guide. I have edited my .config file.I checked proxy with SamAir's proxy checker and it says its elite :D.But when i type proxychains iceweasel to terminal. An iceweasel browser opens but i cannot surf. It says "Server not found" how can i do?

Although real-life security issues -- hackers finding XSS and blind SQLi vulnerabilities -- surrounded the premier season last year, the show itself actively works to mimic real-life security and hacking scenarios. From accurate computer code, to the realism of using social engineering in getting the information needed for an attack, to the actual tools and slang the characters use, Mr. Robot has been mostly spot-on with the security stuff -- and the InfoSec community has sounded its approval.

And while many of the hack methods are condensed to allow the plot to continue, many of the attacks could actually be done -- if only by the most expert security professionals, as main character Elliot is made out to be.

Reality: While the hacking itself is pretty realistic, the way the cops instantly popped into the picture is far less realistic; just sending in a tip is unlikely to prompt a police throw-down within minutes. The lingo used during this scene is spot on, though, establishing both the show and Elliott as real security experts.

In college, he shied away from parties and instead took refuge in the computer lab. It felt safer to talk to people online than in person, Esmail says. But working in the computer lab sometimes created problems; at one point, he was put on academic probation for hacking. 041b061a72
