#360356 Has everyone been down repped or is it just me?

Posted by Powermaniac7 on 11 February 2012 - 08:01 AM

Hi all,

Been busy for a while and was distracted by other facets of life. Signed in today was reading some of the posts to see if anything major or interesting has happened and not much has changed as I expected (no offence). So it seems no harm there in being temporarily gone.

Now as I was reading some of the posts and a reply to my "Everything is Assumed" thread I noticed I had been down rep to -6 so I checked the Binary Revolution forum index page where it has a list of where you were down repped and which it was in like each thread over a long past with no replies as to why...I in some ways don't care but was wondering has another spam bot got lose or some dumb-ass, or did I make a thread that offended some community and they say it and one of them joined and down repped me for that. Anyway I was also wondering if this had happened to anyone else as well.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

#357224 Dell Laptop Password Issue ???

Posted by heisenbug on 18 February 2011 - 03:47 PM

Truth is i found the Laptop and intend keeping it but can't access the system without the password. In this case whats the best tool to use to hack the password?


After seeing your post #4, I withdrawal my advice.


After reading your comment #4 I also got really annoyed. I agree with Berzerk on this. Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems you don't know the difference between petty theft and hacking.

Here is what I consider the difference:

HACKING -
  • Taking a computer, and figuring out a way to bypass the password.
  • Disseminating the contents of the drive to find the owner's name, address, and pictures of them to identify them.
  • Being nice and installing programs to help them find their PC if they lose it again.
    • VNC - (to view the system)
    • An SSH server - (to help retrieve their files)
    • An IP beacon - (To say when the PC is online and what the IP address is)
  • Returning the laptop to the owner.
  • Occasionally checking in on the PC to make sure the system is ok, and they didn't lose it again. (What a good citizen!!!)

PETTY THEFT -
  • Not using google to find a simple kiddie script.
  • Being an idiot and telling everyone you are committing a crime.

#361501 Understanding the Tandem Network

Posted by ThoughtPhreaker on 07 September 2012 - 04:44 AM

Hey Samo! Good to hear from you again. Sorry to give you a wall of text here, there's really no concise way to explain this.

In short, if you want to explore a long distance tandem, your best bet is to use a PIC code. There's a very simple trick that lets you push any destination you want directly into the tandem. We'll use Worldcom as an example, since it works from basically anywhere in the United States.
Ready? Dial 101-0555. That's it; no zero, nothing. What you get next is a dialtone straight from the tandem. In the case of the ex-Worldcom tandems, it's not quite as fun as it could be; it wants an authorization code a-la 950 calling card.

Here's an example of what you might find - http://thoughtphreak..._800223110.flac

That's from a DMS (500, I think) owned by Integra, one of the local CLECs. Most long distance tandems (AT&T's aside - we'll get into that in a bit) don't like terminating toll-free calls, so you'll end up getting weird messages that you'll never be able to hear normally unless your switch loses it's mind. What's so great about this is you're completely free from the dialing restrictions of a normal end office. Want to dial an NXX starting with 1 or 0? A code starting with #? *? There's nothing standing in your way. Sprint in particular stuck a speed dial function on their tandem for some weird reason in the #xx range. #99+anything seems to be it's own little exception - it'll wait for a very large amount of digits before eventually giving you a generic CBCAE recording. This might indicate they're hiding something else here.

There's one downside to this technique; if you're not subscribed to a carrier, they won't always let you play with the tandem. ex-MCI (0222) and Sprint are a couple good examples of this, but Sprint will give you a cool message as a consolation prize. Depending on your area, you might have better luck too. For example, the Qwest long distance network has a combination of DMS-250 and Sonus switches.

Sonus isn't fond of letting people have fun on the phone, so you'll just get a generic error recording. If you encounter Global Crossing's Sonus switches, you won't even get a custom recording, you'll get the Sonus stock one. It's worth a laugh if you ever hear it. It's under three seconds, and was clearly made last minute by an engineer.

Speaking of Global Crossing, like MCI/0222, they have a number of Alcatel DEX switches floating around. Dialing 101-0444 will just get you an error, though. The solution? 950-1044! What dialplan they're using is absolutely beyond me, though, so you're on your own there. There's suggestions - like 800-223-1104 (but only without a 1) going to an invalid code recording that suggest it might be for calling card use, but most things I can think to try just go to a CBCAD.

And then we come to AT&T's 0288 network. I'll level with you, this is something I haven't figured out at all. Whenever I've been fortunate to get a dialtone back, it's always been from one of their 5ESS toll tandems. If there's such thing as a pushy phone switch, this is it. It'll let you know right away if it thinks you're doing something wrong. And putting a 1 in front of your destination number is wrong. I haven't had time or an opportunity to just sit down and investigate this, but what I do know is it's unique from a lot of other switches. For one, it'll terminate toll-free calls, but only on specific carriers. I believe just AT&T and Global Crossing toll-frees. Sometimes, it gets a little weirder - like, if you dial 800-244-1111, you'll get a recording from a McLeodUSA DMS. What this means I'm not sure exactly, but my guess is since the 5E toll tandems are responsible for lending a hand in connecting toll-frees, they'll store translations for those toll-frees. If it happens to have one - outdated or not, it'll just use that instead of doing an SMS-800 dip.

Also of note on the AT&T tandems is the 600 NPA. Instead of just intercepting it like any invalid NPA, it'll pass this onto the 4ESS. This might indicate AT&T stashed something in there.

As for your question - is SS7 relevant to phreaks?

Absolutely. The very core practice of phreaking - introducing unorthodox input into the phone network - is fair game to everything, in or out of the speech channel. In the past, we've proved ISDN cause codes can trigger calls to take a different route, and it's been demonstrated that originating a ghost call (in short, an ANI fail on steroids - a call originated with no field other than the destination number) can be enough trouble that phone companies would probably scratch their heads as to whom they should send the bill to. It's understandable that figuring these things out is a challenge, but if anything, that should be a motivator. We're phone phreaks, we've got the resourcefulness to identify a piece of telco hardware by nothing more than vague sounds, and have fun in the process. This should be a reminder that there's always more to explore, and always another limit to break.

That's a at89c5131 dev-board, this mcu is pretty much an 8051 with usb hardware. I'm probably going to keep touching up the code a little before I start printing boards.

#349663 Spoofcall/Trapcall

Posted by decoder on 21 January 2010 - 10:02 PM

Not to stir shit up, but I certainly agree that this forum shouldn't be a place where fake accounts come along and post allegations which result in people being terminated from their employment.

If "unlucky" was indeed the victim of a violation of his privacy by an employee of trapcall/spoofcard then he should have contacted them.

Also, if Lucky was fired without any evidence of a particular account being accessed by an employee, then he worked for a piece of shit company.

If I were a mod, i would have deleted this thread because even if the allegations were true, there was not a shred of evidence provided, and I do not believe that this is a place for such things. perhaps if "unlucky" simply voiced a concern over the privacy expectations when dealing with a particular service, but he didn't - he made an accusation directed at one man, without anything to back it up.

That being said, it's probably all true. :laugh: ...seriously.

Every time i needed a channel on my cable tv, the company always ask for more money. Is there a way i could manipulate my cabletv without a hole in my pocket? Oh, i have direct tv.


Stop paying for tv service

Look into "FTA" or "FTA Receivers" Etc.

Just read up on the "Free to Air broadcasts"

You just buy a receiver, point your satellite at the orbiting satellite and you can get over 1,000 channels

Free.

#344337 Apparently SCO owns UNIX again

Posted by Colonel Panic on 28 August 2009 - 03:37 AM

SCO doesn't own UNIX, at least not yet. The actual "ownership" and copyright to UNIX is a very complicated issue. All this court decision did was "reverse material aspects" of the earlier verdict from 2007 that found Novell to be the rightful copyright owner. Now there's going to be yet another trial case to determine whether SCO does in fact own the copyright.

I don't think anybody seriously gives a shit about System V UNIX, UnixWare or any of SCO's other crappy, outdated products.

But a company like SCO, which has been in bankruptcy for over 2 years, has virtually no market share and appears to exist these days only for the purpose of suing other companies, might well gain legal ownership of the original System V UNIX code. In other words: they might gain a legal "leg to stand on" and cause more trouble for OSS creators and vendors.

For years, SCO has been bitching that Linux infringes on a copyright for the original UNIX code that it assumes it holds. They have sued companies like IBM and Novell which produce Linux-based software and distribute Linux as an OEM OS. They have disseminated propaganda to Linux users, accusing them of copyright infringement and alleging they could be liable for damages simply by running Linux. They have sued their own (former) customers who switched from using their products to using Linux. SCO is also known to have received financial backing from other, far more powerful interests whose goal is to ruin the open source software movement by any means possible. At this point, SCO clearly has nothing to lose, and Microsoft doesn't have to dirty their hands or risk hurting their own public image by attacking open source developers in court. Microsoft can just sit back and bash the OSS movement in the press, allege IP infringements, negotiate cross-licensing agreements and provide financial support to companies like SCO to file anti-OSS suits.

This may not be a potent threat to the very existence of Linux, but it could definitely harm Linux in the business market and lead to some very bad precedents regarding OSS and software copyright/patents in general.


BTW, I'm not the one who voted down your post. It's an interesting bit of news on a case I haven't really followed in awhile. Thanks for posting it.

#343963 Postage Machine Hacking

Posted by Phail_Saph on 21 August 2009 - 01:02 AM

Posted Image

The above is the 'offical' Postal Regulation for an IBI or Information Based Indicia. All this information is contained in the 2-D barcode to the upper left of a piece of metered mail. Look at some of your junk mail and it will be very clear what I mean. It's that box that looks like Lattera's avatar. The column that says barcode are all of the data items in that 2-D barcode that I'm talking about and the Human Readable is what you can decipher when you look at it...date, time, etc.

The information is digitally signed so that when the Post Office reads the mail it can be fairly certain that it came from a particular licensed meter.

What's crazy is that the meter internally communicates with 'itself' using an asymetric key system...public/private. That is the meter contains a postal security device which is tamper resistant (of course resistance is a relative term) that sends out commands to create and sign the indicia with all the signals being encrypted. Think of it like an HTTPS setup for internal communications or more appropriately like each command being digitally signed. Digital signatures use the public/private key system so this is closer to what is happening.

The whole postage meter industry is so wacky. What I mean is that to actually attack the meter directly is incredibly hard but not impossible;however, there are far easier ways to 'hack' a meter. The meter itself and access thereof is fairly easy due to primitive security. If you have physical control of a meter and a system that can interface with it you can do pretty much whatever you want. But not to be too much of a worry wort...printing postage is printing money; stamps are a legal form of tender so if you play games with this stuff the penalties are insanely harsh because of that. I know some smartass is saying to himself, "Oh then I can use it to buy my groceries?" Not exactly...unclaimed stamps can and must be refunded by the post office. If you show up with a stamp that is legally yours or if you can 'somehow' prove that that is a stamp of yours the post office refunds the amount on the stamp. Of course it isn't an immediate refund. You can't just show up with a meter label for a hundred bucks and walk away with a c-note.

#340641 New Operating Systems

Posted by Ohm on 12 June 2009 - 11:42 PM

Clearly the best was Windows 95. Don't you miss 3 reboots a day?

As for XP, it was received pretty badly at first. Pre-SP1, XP was quite buggy. Also, for the time it was resource heavy, so a lot of people complained they couldn't run it on their current machines. I always got a chuckle when people bashed Vista, yet praised XP which had similar problems at the start. Of course people were willing to bite the bullet since the alternative was Windows 98 (or for the enlightened few, Windows 2000). Now, you have XP which works and is stable, so you can sit back and poo Vista all you want.

I've also had no problems with Vista. If you have a fast enough machine, there's just not much to complain about. It works, what more do you want?

As long as you're listing future OSs, why not list Ubuntu 9.10?

I think he is referring of your failure to read:

If you had a "home network" in which you wanted to find a way to attach "Two Girls and One Cup" to every outbound email as an attachment called "statistical_survey.mp4" that might have been a different story.

That is legal (weird, but legal) and people could reply to that; however, your request is quite illegal, and no hacker in their right mind would feel comfortable in helping you break any law. Hackers are inquisitive folk, not hooligans that are hell bent on going to jail.

#348101 MAC Address of router banned at university

Posted by dinscurge on 04 December 2009 - 02:28 PM

i would probably just stop messing with the schools network. as even if you were running linux/bsd/osx or w.e. they could still tell you are using a torrent as it totally saturates the network, they will still be able to trace the traffic to your router/ your computer if you are directly hooked up, even if your running linux/bsd or w.e. they can still trace all the traffic to your computer, they all broadcast the mac when your on a network. i guess turn off wireless and just hookup ethernet so they cant sniff your mac through the air when you connect to your router and change the mac addy of the router like everyday but yeah that will only work for some amount of time till they get pissed and start search peoples stuff for the rogue router thats raping their network.

#344476 receive only telephone

Posted by gbppr on 30 August 2009 - 09:48 PM

The easiest way to disable the mechanical ringer on a phone is to run the line through a bridge rectifier. Put your incoming phone line on the two AC inputs and take the + and - outputs to your phone's ring and tip. It may "clang" once during a ring cycle.

Also, there will be a large capacitor in series with the ringer coil for DC blocking. You can just unsolder one side of this capacitor to disable the ringer.

To disable the keypad, no matter which model phone, just unsolder the 3.58 MHz colorburst crystal used for the DTMF generator chip. You can always solder it back in.

#342319 Massive DDoS attack underway

Posted by R4p1d on 10 July 2009 - 01:18 AM


Kevin Mitnick talked about it for 10min on Coast to Coast AM last night - equating it to a script-kiddie attack. I think the N. Korean Government would be a little more advanced. I mean every country that has any nuclear capability should be able to write buffer-over-flows and the like.

Why though? Being a nuisance and preventing communication can be just as useful of a tool for "cyber-warfare" as more 'tactical strikes' with a much lower technical barrier. Also, exploits can be patched (in a perfect world, they would be patched) and then lose their value to the attacker, but a DDoS can be a right bitch to deal with.

North Korea my ass! They're barely building nukes.

Rockafeller's Cyber Security Act of 2009 is right around the corner from being presented in congress. Think out side the box people, it doesn't hurt every once in a while.

http://www.opencongr...bersecurity-Act

In my opinion (and really only there), this is the most likely option. Leaving aside "the crackpot conspiracy theories", there is irrefutable evidence that the US government has, at least, planned false-flag activities in the past to get the public support behind policies it is trying to enact. Now, take this with a grain of salt as I see no real evidence to support this, but it seems as likely as most of the other theories being tossed around.


I agree, they could be trying to set an example.

I don't know why people in this community still use these fraudulent terms, but file-sharing is not piracy, and it certainly isn't stealing. If a friend gives me an old book or cd or dvd, is that stealing? Obviously not.

Those who continue to use these terms are defending companies who rip you off, and rip off the artist.

Anyway, we live in a new world and if you stick to the old ways, you're a dinosaur. File sharing will never stop. If everyone just faced this economic reality, then progress can be made. To continue arguing over the morality of it is fucking stupid. Everyone has different morals. If one were a communist, they would have a different moral stance on this than an anarchist, or someone who thinks they believe in capitalism but actually just likes to get ripped off.

The old business model is dead. Make a new one or die with it.
