Did you know that a sister show of "The Real World" was "Road Rules" where
they did challenges on the road.
One of the contestants on one of the seasons had port-scanned the
production company and found an open SMB network share. He managed to get
hold of their documents related to the casting, which had the the types of
psychological profiles they were looking for. He adapted himself to meet
one of them to a tee and managed to get on the show.
On the show he was wearing a hat that said "r00t" which at the time was a
"hacking group" that had released a few zero day vulnerabilities. In IRC
on efnet a few of the people from that group were on there and when I
asked them they said they had never heard of this guy, didn't know him,
but it was crazy their name was on TV. Had made at a mall embroidery
operation it seemed. They never had any hats or real branded merch.
Nothing was said at this point about anything related to computers or
anything from the contestant on the show, just had that hat.
Later in the season he was in a fight with some girl and threatened to
hack into her school and change her grades. That is the first time the
computer thing came out (other than the r00t hat.) Then after the season
more details came out about him getting hold of all their internal docs
and social engineering his way onto their show.
Pretty crazy. Ahh just googled "Abe Ingersoll" was the guy.
