Anatomy of a simple phishing attack

In this post I will discuss a case that I have been meaning to analyze for quite some time: Shaltay-Boltay’s (a.k.a. Anonymous International) hack of a Russian politician’s GMail account.

Unlocking the ESET unlocker

ESET Antivirus (a.k.a. NOD32) in corporate environments is usually extremely annoying, since it pesters the user with useless popups, prevents downloading of useful programs, breaks SSL connections, etc. Its settings are password-protected, accessible only to sysadmins — good luck getting through that wall. Of course, it is possible to simply uninstall the antivirus via some convoluted process (if one has administrative access, which is not a given), but we don’t look for easy paths.
