Day 1

The naughtiness awakens

Our Elf started life as an ordinary Elf, making use of the internet for everyday tasks and interests. He did enjoy watching the odd cat video here and using InstaElf but he started to wonder whether there was more to do.

He soon discovered that there were many other more interesting (but naughty) things he could get up to…

\

Ransomware-as-service

638m attacks were tracked over 2016 and are easy for Elf to create

\

Denial of service attacks

Another simple and effective way of causing havoc

\

Poor passwords

How many accounts could the Elf get access to?

\

Disgruntled Elf

After quitting work, deleting data on his way out could be a start

Follow our Elf’s journey over the next 12 days to see what he gets up to.
