I was a Jr Infosec Admin in a past, stressful, painful life.
Yes, physical locks can be flimsy aaand I just saw the picture. Tbh it looks like a timed magnetic lock + shitty door lock.
I don't know what uni has such shit locks on their server rooms. We had keypad + badge readers with the doors mag-locked.
Yeah, judging by their physical security fail, they've probably got 0 cameras, but still something I wouldn't fuck with.
Sometimes smart people do dumb shit because they don't have it in them to not sacrifice anything in the name of best practice o r they don't have funding or other reasons.
Then again, there are just some dumb motherfuckers in infosec that are attracted be the "hacker allure." Trust me. My university graduated some people in our Computer Science - Info Security focus bachelors and masters who are literally job security for the rest of us. Great at school, terrible at applying said knowledge.
IMHO, physical security super damn important. Yes, it's a pain in the ass to unlock racks, man traps, blah blah blah, but if you're protecting important information, you simply cannot afford to neglect the fact that digital security can be sometimes circumvented (and forensically analyzed) with physical access if someone RIPS THE UNIT FROM THE RACK AND TAKES IT HOME.>>2211
Toool's $25 pick set is great to get into it. Tbh, I use mine all the time. Check out your local infosec cons. They usually have a physical/lockpicking table/village.>>2224
