Meet Melvin Guzman who broke into the hackers apartment and took away his Mac and back up hard drives. Zoz, a craft hacker managed to track down his stolen Mac along with thief’s full identity and reports it back to cops. Watch the video how hacker hacks into his stolen computer and tracks down information of thief. Hilarious indeed!!
Zoz searched for months on eBay and Craigslist to locate his Mac computer but has no luck. His first bit of luck came because he had set up the machine to use a dynamic DNS service, updated via a script. Since the criminal didn’t wipe the hard drive he was able to find the machine online. From there he discovered that he could SSH into it, and even uses VNC to eavesdrop on the new owner. This, along with a keylogger he installed, got him all the information he needed; the name, birth date, login and password information for websites, and most importantly his street address. He passed the information to police to recover his system.
