For a time, all of us were hackers.

I won't tell much about it but due to no IT support our team took to what some may call hacking to get back to work.

Here's the biggest lesson we learned.

-> Without physical security there is no security.

Example. Without exception we've been able to boot most "servers" from some USB stick to add a new account, copy out data and more. Even if we couldn't boot we could always use what is called a Rubber Duck from Hak5.

Look at the prior leaks and attacks and you find that this happened inside the company and for us it was performed directly on the servers.

That seems nice.

Remember your top question is "Have your encountered hackers at your place of work on the network?" to which I responded.

Your example seems off topic to me.
