Hacking a hotel and resort in Kenya is no easy task, as they have their own rules, and they will probably be hard to follow, according to one of the developers behind the hack.
The developer, a resident of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, was part of the team who cracked the security code for the hotel and said the team was “scared” of being caught.
“We are scared to be caught, we are scared of losing our jobs, and we are also scared of the repercussions of what we have done,” he said.
“It is scary to say the least.”
While the hotel has a secure password, a visitor may have a better idea of who the hotel staff is, as the code is shared with them through social media.
“Our system is pretty secure,” he explained.
“The hotel is not connected to the internet.
So if the visitor tries to get in through a wall, the password will be in the hotel.
If they try to get into the hotel via the internet, it will be through the hotel.”
“This is why we are here to share our code with the hotel,” he added.
The hotel’s security code is posted on its website, which explains the process for cracking the hotel’s code.
The site includes instructions on how to enter the hotel using an account, and a screenshot of the password and the hotel code.
Once the code has been cracked, the visitor is asked to download and install the app that will be used to access the code, which is now available for free on the Google Play store.
A QR code will be required to scan and print the code.
It also provides a tutorial on how the code can be cracked.
“If someone is going to take advantage of you, they are going to have to use their imagination,” he told Mashable.
“So it’s a good idea to create a fake ID and use that.
But, the only way to protect yourself is to create an account with an app.”
The hacker told Mashables that the hotel had only been open for a few days, and that the code had already been cracked in a few minutes.
However, he said he did not believe it would be a good option for tourists.
“This hotel is a little bit small and we were expecting this, so I thought maybe it will not be that big a deal,” he noted.
Hackers in Kenya are not the only ones with concerns about the hotel security. “
But we are all tourists, we don’t have anything to do with the country, so why not share this code with others?”
Hackers in Kenya are not the only ones with concerns about the hotel security.
Hackers have also begun to share their experience with hotel staff in Kenya.
In an email to Mashable, one of those who was caught sharing the code shared his experience with staff: The first time I went in, I was so nervous and worried because they [the staff] told me that it was a code they had sent me, and not a hotel code, and I was scared.
I didn’t know where to go, and what to do.
I asked them to show me the codes, but they didn’t do anything.
I got scared.
There was no one to speak with.
They told me to just stay in the room, but I was afraid to stay in my room.
And they also told me not to do anything on the internet because it could be read by other people.
It was so stressful for me, it was really hard to do everything on my own.
The staff at the hotel said they were also concerned that someone could easily break into the code and steal their passwords.
“A hacker could probably take advantage to read the codes,” said the hotel manager, who requested to remain anonymous because he is not a security expert.
“That could be a problem because if somebody takes that code, then you would not have a way to make sure that the password was correct.
The code itself is not difficult to read.
You just need to look at the code.”
“The code itself does not appear to be hard-coded,” the manager added.
“When you are in the rooms, you are not even able to read any of the code,” he continued.
“There is no way to verify if the code was correct, because it is just the code itself.
It is very hard to see the code on a computer screen.”
The hotel manager said the code will likely be cracked by the time he is finished with the code he shared.
“Hopefully the code does not become public, but if someone else does, they could easily access the hotel, and there would be no way for us to protect the security,” he concluded.
