Kevin Mitnick preaches social engineering awareness

In a keynote presentation at the Citrix iForum conference in Australia today, hacker Kevin Mitnick : said "social engineering appeals to hackers because the Internet is so widespread, it evades all intrusion detection systems, it's free or very low cost, it's low risk, it works on every operating system, leaves no audit trail, is nearly 100 percent effective, and there is a general lack of awareness of the problem."
