    Exclamation School I got kicked out of is paying me to hack back into the network

    So I was expelled in December for hacking the wifi and sniffing network traffic and getting the teachers email and online gradebook passwords.
    I changed some grades and a kid snitched so I was kicked out.
    About a week ago I dropped my sister off and ran into the principle who was a former teacher of mine.
    He emailed me and asked if I would like to make some money (I will send people who are willing to help a pm of the message)
    I said yes, and had a meeting with him the next morning and told me he will pay me to hack back into the network and write a report for him, there will be a contract so it will be legit.

    I am asking for your help as I'm fairly new to Backtrack and just fool around a bit, would anyone be willing to guide me/teach me a few basic things?
    ps sorry about the late post this is to be done Tuesday and Wensday, then i go of to study for an Info Sys degree.

    Two ideas that initially came to mind in terms of making things secure:

    1: Find the computer where all the "delicate" information is stored, go behind the desk, crouch down, look for where the Ethernet cable goes into it, and pull out the cable. Just forbid this computer from being on any kind of network. If it has a wireless card then pull it out and burn it (you may need to use petrol because those green boards are pretty stubborn to burn).

    2: Put the computer hosting the "delicate" information on its own special network (e.g. 10.10.69/24), and be VERY VERY VERY particular about how this network can be accessed. Forbid any incoming TCP and UDP connections to this subnet. Note, however, that this doesn't destroy the possibility of client-side attack.

    Personally, I'd go with the first idea... I wouldn't even let the special computer have internet access.

    Also another way of making a network more secure is to forbid any use of Microsoft software on any of its hosts (especially the Microsoft Windows operating system).
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    At the high school in my hometown, they had your first option implemented, but they decided to create a second network, for productivity reasons (teachers need to access the system from their home/other locations). It's much more insecure, yes, but there has to be a balance between security and the company needs.

    well i posted the contract that was emailed to me but i guess it didnt go through
    also i was kicked out because i ran tcpdump and analyzed the wifi traffic and the microsoft exchange webserver did not have ssl enabled so it was broadcasting passwords in plain text

    I could care less whether you believe me or not, I am asking for help because I want to deserve what I am being paid.

    Thats great, thats really great.

    Any Principal that actually did contract out a security assessment of their network to someone they just expelled for hacking it must either have no sense of self preservation or must be looking to get fired.

    What happens if you break something? Im assuming you don't have professional indemnity insurance? I also don't see any reference to limitations of liability in that contract you are to sign. Are you even old enough to legally enter into a contract yet?

    Another thing I love about this is that it teaches other students a great lesson - get caught hacking the network and you get a chance to get paid!
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
