In this video you will witness hackers attempting a social engineering attack. They randomly call people and try and get them to allow remote control to a PC. They then try and show how the customers are infected and charge to fix their PC.

When one called my home, I wanted to see what they were up to so I played along.

This video is both entertaining and informative in seeing how this social engineering hacking works.

    203.169.5185 - Claimed to be calling about my computer "with the Windows operating server on it" and said that "a lot of hacking files had been downloaded recently". I said, "I have more than 100 computers here. This is a business. Which one are you referring to? " "Oh... OK... Um..." CLICK.

    I love how he bluntly installs chrome "because it works better with Windows 8" - coming from a guy from the Windows team... That made my day :)

    Screw the bas***ds before they screw you!
