Alright blades, so no more than 45 minutes ago I was threatened with arrest on the US, and if it was followed through, well I would spend the next few years of my life in jail here.... Story is as follows: Staying at a hotel on vacation, read their TOS for wifi use, says no downloading anything illegally, porn, etc.... Also any malicious attempt are frowned upon as well. So me being a comp security buff, I wanted to poke around this network while downloading movies. Oh boy was this a bad idea. At first I thought these guys didn't take their security seriously, as they had many open ports that could prove critical if exploited. I recently made a thread pondering the idea whether I should tell them about the holes. This morning I woke up fully ready to do that, but wanted to do a little more poking around just to see how serious the flaw was, and whether or not it was worth reporting. SERIOUSLY BAD IDEA #2. So I start poking around, trying to break into some open ports, and this goes on for another 20 minutes or so; This is followed by a knock on the door, I walk over expecting it to be my dad, well I was wrong. It was the mother fucking hotel manager. I was caught. So he beings the questioning, asking what I'm doing why I'm here, etc... I had no real way of explaining the music and movie downloading, so I fessed up to it. I did try to explain away the network poking around, which he wasn't too happy about. Last night they began noticing I was using HEAVY bandwidth, I had downloaded around 8gb worth of data in 24 hours, which is quite a bit at a hotel. So they began monitoring what I was doing, and when they found me running port scans and trying to break into some ports, they decided to come up to my room. Now let it be known, I was 110% going to report everything I found, every last bit of detail. I wasn't going to look at any sensitive information, just confirm that serious flaws existed. But the manager was having none of this, and threatened to call the local police on me. So he says this, and in my head I'm like, "OH FUCK! I'm going to get myself arrested in a country I have no citizenship in, on charges of hacking.... Goodbye the next few years of my life." So I try to convince him that I was doing it out of good intentions. Truth be told, it didn't seem like the manager was believing me, I really doubt he did but for some fucking lucky reason, he decided to let me off with a very SERIOUS warning: "If I ever, EVER catch you on the wifi, trying to get onto a computer here, or using our internet I will call the police the second I find out." He than walks over to the wall, and pulls out the ethernet chord, as if this will stop me. Than walks out of the room and as he is closing the door, stares me straight in the eyes as if he wants to kill me. There you have it, I was nearly arrested while on vacation in the US.
