Avoid social engineering and identity theft

Ever googled your own name? Yes? Then try out the following. It's amazing how much traces people leave on the internet. We need to be careful about the information, we put online. Identity theft and social engineers will abuse it otherwise.



Maltego is a program that can be used to determine the relationships and real world links between:

People
Groups of people (social networks)
Companies
Organizations
Web sites
Internet infrastructure such as:
Domains
DNS names
Netblocks
IP addresses
Phrases
Affiliations
Documents and files

I challenge you to try it out! ;-)
