WATCH - Kevin Mitnick demonstrates how easy it is for a hacker read your email messages

Kevin Mitnick demonstrates how easy it is for a hacker to tap into your network and read your email messages, even if it’s a fiber optic network.

Kevin Mitnick, famous former black hat hacker, demonstrates just how easy it is for a hacker to tap into your network and read your email. And he’s doing it with a fiber optic network connection, not a simple and very non-secure CAT5x or CAT6x network wire. And he doesn’t have to connect to the Internet, your network, or any outside resources to do this. He clamps onto a fiber optic “wire”, opens Wireshark, and sniffs away your most guarded secrets.

Mitnick demonstrates in under five minutes how he could get near your network, set up a clandestine connection, sniff your network, grab your passwords, email, anything sent “over the wire” unencrypted, and disappear within minutes. And you’d never catch him doing it.
