  • In 2014, Bryan Seely hacked the Secret Service and the FBI, and then turned himself in to alert authorities to the problem. He'll tell you what you can do about it in his very entertaining talk.
    Bryan Seely has garnered a great deal of national attention in the last year. He recognized there were some critical problems with the websites we use most often. He learned that not only is our personal security threatened, but so is our national security. To prove his point, Seely hacked the Secret Service and the FBI last year, and then turned himself in to alert authorities to the problem. He'll tell you what you can do about it in his very entertaining talk.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    A few months ago I was looking for a good deal on a used car. I soon found a Toyota for $800.00. 6 years old and only 60,000 miles. Not a scratch inside or out. I was told "In the military ready to deploy". I knew it was BS, but I played with them. I was able to work the price down to $500.00 and he/she would deliver it to me for free...but time was clicking by and the "ready to deploy" came up again and how I could send money "worry free" threw Facebook. Something I never heard of before. When I tried the very elaborate Google account that person had, came up as non existent. SCAM. I had fun using their carrot and stick. I'm retired with a lot of time on my hands. I play with the phone scammers from India when they call. After about 10 minutes or more and often someone else in their "office", I tell them the joke on them. IRS, Social Security.... Bastards..

    Advertisers pay per click. But they earn per service provided. How hard & legal would it be have an autoclicker/refresher spam & bankrupt the scammers? Or am i missing a few steps?

    So, explain to me how the agent called his DC office and it was intercepted? He would have been calling them from his directory so the authentic number would have been dialed.
    My assumption was the fake listing had a number that simply forwarded the calls to the real number thus opening the intercept. Otherwise, this guy totally lost me. He was not the best speaker...

    • Jason Walker

      He had the guy do a google search and call the number that popped up. The number looked authentic, but it was actually the same number with a different area code. It redirected first to a middleman program that recorded the call, then to its intended destination.

    Most Ted Talks have microphones placed over or pointed at the audience so they can hear audience response. Either they did not have those here, or they were not active. If you really turn up your volume, you can hear the crowd laughing at times; his humor was not that bad, nor was it a tough crowd.

    if "clicking" is what initiates pay sequence can we all not run basic programs to target these links? just rapid fire open and close - hit the company with a bill so high they prefer yahoo to google. maybe im wrong.

    So lesson of the day, just keep clicking the adds with no intent to buy anything. Scams starts losing money paying per click and stops paying google.

    The agent of SS didn't know their phone number and he had to google it and he called your fake number, really? Sounds like BS.

    • Andrew Armstrong

      No, but since this guy was hacking the Secret Service place that he was at, any calls from or to that number would be recorded.

      He's bringing up a serious problem and he's cracking in a few jokes here and there. Most people in that room were probably paying more attention to the problem than the humor.

    YES , USSS has an academy, It is very similar to FBI academy. It, like most good law enforcement training, takes place in many places, takes at least 1/2 year & requires college degree.
