Predish Real Estate and Auction (PREA) buys and sells high-end residential and commercial real estate across a multistate region. One of the tools that PREA offers is a sophisticated online website that allows potential buyers to take virtual tours of properties. However, PREA’s site was recently compromised by attackers who defaced the site with malicious messages, causing several customers to threaten to withdraw their listings. PREA’s senior management has demanded a top-to-bottom review of their security by an independent third party. LPCS has been hired to perform the review, and they have contracted with you to work on this project.
