I don't see how exploiting poor security policy and system policy is "old school". Threat Actors use any method in their tool box to subvert security. The majority of these start by re-using tools and concepts already known. Because they still work. Threat Actors will not burn a Zero day exploit and/or hand crafted malware unless absolutely necessary. Especially when organizations in every market/vertical all around the world still ignore security basics.
