ok, this is a pretty weird question ;)
how would somone know if they have been 'hacked' (besides the obvious accounts mysertously being craeted.. file being created/going missing) etc
I have only been a net admin for this company for about 8 months and although before then I did read as much as I could on computer security.. but because im not an expert im pretty sure one day if not already this network will be hijacked... but how would I knwo if somone on the outside has already been in the network?
ive never seen anythjing out of the ordinary.. not even in the security logs. Its the same at home.. I dont think my home network has ever been 'hacked', but im not at careful about doing things as I am at work (i.e. I log in as admin and do all my work on that account at home :/ )
but in saying this.. I am not a moron.. I dont go around clicking on suspicious things and I know about social engineering (watich TakeDown and reading Mitnicks book).. so maybe thats why ive never expericenced a 'hacking'
I dunno.. your opinions are most welcome :)
