Couple of months ago I saw one video from Defcon 18, called “Pwned by the owner”. I really liked the story, also the way the presentation was held. So would like to recomend this video both to security guys and to soft skills guys. In short, presentation is actually a story about stolen computer. But hackers’ stolen computer. So it is a story about getting access to own computer, but in hands of the stealer. Speaker explains how he got access to different type of accounts, how he gathered information, lost data, and how he get known with his victim. In other words how he pwned person who stole his computer. Its funny, and you can learn a lot from it. Check it here:
