The Modern Ninja

Since 2011, we have heard a lot incident around the world where by confidential information was been stolen , government website was been defaced and big corporation network was been crippled for some reason. The famous will be the anonymous group, but have you ever wonder why they success?. The only reason for it, they think differently. I am
not one of them, but mostly all of the security assessment group will have this on their mind. 

They have been paid to work like a guerrilla attacking the network.
Let me share with you the ancient ninja in Japan which existed since 1800, their nature haven been changed and it seem to be in practice and inherit till now to a different type of users. Ninja practice Shinobi-iri (忍び入り) which are one of the ninjutsu techniques for silent movement. This is since 1800s, look at the now.

Stealth won't work anymore, we have CCTV 24x7 to monitor and a very good monitoring system to log all the auditing logs. What does the modern ninja do, they use technology to stealth them self. Let me share some of it with you like TOR network or proxy.
