    Default can anyone REALLY hack a gmail account these days?

    It seems hackers are willing to do this for around $100 or so, maybe more but is it even possible?
    I've seen Hydra used but that could be done with the password entered into the 'wordlist'

    Is is possible?

    Keylogger exploit or human hack would be easy enough. Any brute force or web traffic interception might be more tricky.

    I donít doubt itís possible. Just not sure if people selling the job are legit if im honest.

    yep, I'm thinking of deploying a keylogger stub crypted into doc/jpg or pdf..it has to be something they would open and an image or file containing a logo design would do the trick..
    I've also seen these rubber ducky usbs and you can get far cheaper ones..could be worth a go..

    If itís glong corporate, most companies have half decent a/v that might pick up a bent file. If it even gets through email servers. A lot block or as a minimum mark as spam.

    If u have access to the target, a physical device might be better.

    Just a thought, doesn't 2FA make these things a lot more difficult? My last two companies it's been mandatory to use it and I use it on all my personal accounts where possible.

    Thanks to Brydo666

    this is a small company with no security apart from an antivirus...these lot are useless at online security...the gmail post I am thinking would be a step too far unless I can get the password. I can connect to their wifi from nearby but don't know how I could access machines on the network from there on in..

    Scan the network, youd be surprised how many servers / workstations leave the local administrator account active with no password

    you have made 3 useless posts, the next one hopefully will be a result of you reading your welcome message and the Df rules
