How a lying 'social engineer' hacked Wal-Mart

How a lying 'social engineer' hacked Wal-Mart | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

A Wal-Mart store manager in a small military town in Canada got an urgent phone call last month from "Gary Darnell" in the home office in Bentonville, Ark.Darnell told the manager Wal-Mart had a multi-million-dollar opportunity to win a major government contract, and that he was assigned to visit the handful of Wal-Mart stores picked as likely pilot spots. First, he needed to get a complete picture of the store's operations.

For about 10 minutes, Darnell described who he was (a newly hired manager of government logistics), the outlines of the contract ("all I know is Wal-Mart can make a ton of cash off it") and the plans for his visit.
