    If you aren't used to a command line, or Unix type systems this can be a bit confusing. If you ARE familiar with Unix type systems it is confusing. Access denied? Let me try a sudo - okay, that didn't work.

    You'll want to enter:
    >help xxxx

    where xxxx is a command listed by the first 'help' to find out what each command does. This is a must to see how things are done.

    Remember - Stinger is CaSe SeNsItIvE

    19-1: Trail
    Unlike normal Unix where cd takes us into a directory - stinger uses it more like a combination of 'cd' standard 'ls' - it shows us what is in a given directory without necessarily taking us there.

    >stinger-cd company-1 Desktop

    will show us what is on the desktop, and if there is a .pdf or .txt there...

    >stinger-rd company-1 file.txt

    will show us the file's contents - note that we DON'T have to specify the exact directory. Just the company name.

    Now poke around on the system and file a file that may have what you're looking for.

    Bigger Nudge
    Aconite is an American company. What are some common ISPs in the States?

    19-2 Dirty Secrets:
    Do you know what Social Engineering is? We've done it before with the Watchmen.

    A component of Social Engineering, particularly when targeting one specific person is OSINT -> Open Source Intelligence. This entails gathering information about a person from public available sources.

    The Watchmen have done us one better - we have privately sourced information that we can use with publicly available sources - Try it out.

    Our CFO here seems to be concerned about privacy. He's taken a few measures to remain anonymous online - does he have something to hide?
    If we cut into him will it make us cry?
