midfr0st had downloaded the website for Meriabeck and was browsing the contents offline, he hardly remembered what it was the company was doing and this knowledge was vital for his plans. There was a lot of material to go through, their website wasn’t too big but there were a lot of pdf reports there. Since it was a publicly traded company there was a lot of information, or rather speculations, to be read in different online forums.
Apparently the company was now creating some sort of RFID chips and there was a lot of talk about a big deal being very close. Backtracking to earlier discussions, midfr0st found out that this had been the situation for the last two years. Perfect, he smiled and inhaled some more smoke from his cigarette. The sun was shining on his balcony and the neighbor’s dog was barking. Business as usual.
midfr0st logged on his Internet bank and signed up for a service which would send a text message to his phone and an email if the stock price for Meriabeck Technologies changed more than 5% in either direction.
Paranoia is good for you, midfr0st mused. He didn’t want it to look suspicious, since he was hardly ever logged on to the bank and hadn’t done any other affairs the last few years, it might look odd if he suddenly managed to sell the stocks during the hours they soared. If the stock crashed a few hours later it would be more suspicious. In reality the amount of stocks he traded would be insignificantly small, but midfr0st prided himself in being careful.
midfr0st obsessed about keeping things organized and had started setting up a project plan for each job he did. At the moment he was using Planner and his task list for the current project contained these entries:
- Create online rumor
- Find a respectable company to use
- Hack Meriabeck
- Send an official statement from Meriabeck
- Shutdown Meriabecks access to the world
- Sell stock
- Watch stock crash and do the monkey dance
His target deadline was seven weeks away.
