    Here's the complete collection of recordings I grabbed of the Odessa 1AESS switch before the cutover. The recordings were made during late may, with the last batch (A-D recordings) made on June 2, 2017 -- days before the cutover. The most interesting recordings I found during the calls to the switch: 1AESS-A.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS intercept sounded like. Allows you to hear the background SIT-tone noise before recordings. 1AESS-D.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS supervision test sounded like. 1AESS-3.wav - Bizarre because the switch cut to busy after intercept, instead of cutting over to reorder like normal. 1AESS-11.wav - Bizarre because the call, without ring, goes to the 1AESS intercept recording for one cycle, then stops for 20 seconds, and returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-14.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 30 seconds, then returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-15.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 40 seconds, then returns a reorder. More descriptions on the other calls are available on the 1A_desc.txt file on the dropbox drive. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xca3wwskn1mzwzt/AABJMpTS0XDL9NQQgiz4LVI4a?dl=0 Enjoy.

    There's another number to that; 3438. If you're hitting a route that gives you g.729 (sorta ruins that catchy song), it's not a bad idea to try both a few times. Interestingly, the transcoding seems to come on after the C5 chirps; those (and sometimes some Australian sounding ring) are always clear as day. So now when I found this - I actually think I found it with radio_phreak, but when I did, I was about as excited as you can expect. But something wasn't quite right. If you do a RESPORG lookup on 3438/7, it comes back as using the MCI/0222 network. If you call the number directly terminating to the Malaysian destination (you'll find it with a bit of searching) over MCI though, it's end to end SS7. After trying a bunch of carriers with no success, the theory we wound up with is that they were re-originating via a third party country; likely Australia, to shave a few cents off termination charges. Interestingly, when you hop on a conference on that access number, it'll allow you the option to contact customer service for the company, which is based out of Denver. The route you get is _definitely_ not C5. For whatever it's worth, there was another number until semi-recently; 3439 that routed a little differently. Usually it was more likely to get a transcoded route, or other weird things - one route had 450 hertz ringback before the call went offhook quite a lot . But anyway, for whatever it's worth, during Hurricane Sandy it gave you an error recording from a Santera OCX. If I remember right, the other numbers worked fine though. One thing I've noticed is during that song they play for hold music, sometimes it likes to disconnect you in weird ways. The hold music in question passes some notes a few times that definitely sound like 2400 hertz, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it (maybe we should pay attention to the supervision status), or if it's just an apathetic operator hanging up on you. Incidentally, when the call tears down with 2600, you'll hear this curious reorder tone from the international gateway that sorta fades in and out. Based on this, I wonder if it's a type 1 EWSD: https://pastebin.com/q1dvEcVw . So this isn't exactly C5, but a while ago, I found some Axtel DMS logs on Scribd. No, seriously. You can see from there they have quite a few R2 trunks provisioned for end users: 142785363-switch-a.pdf . We were playing with this on the bridge a few months ago - something I sorta want to get into again at some point; a few people seemed pretty excited about it. There's one particular number, +52-818-114-1500 (on the AX2P42 trunk group; labeled STA_CATARINA_CALL_CENTER_PBX_R2. If you look at page 224, you'll see the trunk group type configuration for this and many others; there's a bunch of R2 trunks with generic labels) that will send a backwards 4 in MFC (780 + 1140 hertz)to the switch - indicating a network error when it messes up. Which it occasionally does. Dunno how or if these can be seized, but it seemed worth mentioning. Speaking of which, I don't have the number for this; I had the bright idea of putting it on the speed dial for a calling card and then letting it expire, but Russia has some sort of strange signaling - perhaps another R2 variant floating about in their network. This particular call I remember being to Siberia: weirdmfs.flac . A lot of their switches use whatever this is. It enables them to send vacant number conditions and such over their signaling network. All I do here besides try and hit some DTMF is whistle 2600 twice; once to seize the trunk, and another time to make the switch get all angry. The tones you hear are the standard R1 frequency set, but obviously an R1 trunk never barks MFs back at you. EDIT: Crap, I forgot about the Cuba stuff. From what I understand, Havana if no other place has a reasonably modern network of Alcatel gear. As for the fixed GSM terminals, there's some older documents on Cuban telecom infrastructure lying around. All of them seem to point towards the Cuban fixed network being very over capacity. That could have something to do with that particular addition. As for Paraguay, radio_phreak mentioned to me a while back a particular set of numbers that would route to C5 trunks over some carriers. I believe it was +595-528-222-xxx. Back to the C5 stuff though, does anybody know where we can find a protocol spec document for it? That'll probably help us with some of the oddities we've found on some of these trunk groups. Another EDIT: http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-Q.140-Q.180/en Holy shit, another EDIT: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?/topic/47028-portugal/#comment-364799 portugal_c5.flac One (hopefully) last thing - for anybody looking for international credit, I've found http://www.call2.com to be pretty good for the most part. Most of their routes look to be resold MCI, the rates are reasonable, and it tends to be decent quality. It is a callback service though, so it can be a little clunky for a large number of calls like in a scan. DMS-10 loops can be a good way to make this a little less painful. I feel kinda gross giving out a plug like that, but given the relative obscurity of the service and the content of the thread, it seems appropriate.

    0800 890 595 is now a (quite rare) example of the equipment engaged tone. I haven't done much looking for interesting switching/signalling since the early 2000s. It's got more difficult now because most people and businesses in poor countries have jumped straight to GSM (+successors). Back then, it would (as radio_phreak notes) be much more productive to look in the provincial towns and cities of poor countries than in their main cities. My preferred method was to look online for hotels or businesses in those backwater areas, ideally finding their fax numbers, and call those. Much prefer bothering a fax machine than disturbing a person. Now-a-days you need to do this armed with the country's dialling plan (wikipedia usually has these) - and most of the numbers you find will be mobiles. Re Cuba, I can't reach the supposed second dialtone for the US base via +53 99. The state telco is marketing the "fija alternativa" service - ie a GSM-based fixed service - suggesting aged and interesting POTS equipment exists. Calling from here, it's evident that their international gateway is something not outrageously ancient, because it promptly returns an appropriate SS7 code for incorrect prefixes - eg +53 41 000000 returns the usual SIT+"the number you have dialled has not been recognised" from my local exchange. +53 xx 300000 returns a Cuban intercept - in Spanish then English - after about 5 seconds of delay, where XX is any of the 2-digit areacodes listed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_Cuba. Sadly no signalling sounds are evident during the delays - I think I've tried all of them. I had a quick look for hotels in Panama and all the phone numbers I found were +507 6xxx xxxxx - ie mobiles. However, again, I'm hopeful that downstream of the international gateway is something elderly and interesting. +507 900 0000 sometimes gives an intercept - Spanish only - mentioning C&W Panama, again with a significant post-dial delay. +507 800 0000 gives my local telco's equipment engaged tone. +507 811 1111 was answered by a human +507 700 0000 is a different Spanish intercept, with a longer post-dial delay. +507 600 0000 or 500 0000 give my local telco's SIT+number not recognised intercept. +507 400 0000 is the same intercept-after-delay as 900 0000. +507 300 0000 is yet another Spanish intercept, with delay. +507 200 0000 has a very long delay then something times out any my local telco plays SIT+"sorry, there is a fault". +507 210 0000 has a long delay then the 900 0000 intercept +507 220 0000 rings, again after a delay, and is answered by some sort of automated service - in Spanish. No signalling sounds or evident, for me, in any of the above :-(

    I was pretty active back in 2009/2010 with exploration and scanning, this is to the best of my recollection In the UK there was some widely shared numbers that in the 90s were C5 directs as well as being free to call (0800 numbers), by 2009-2010 time only two remained: Bahamas on 0800 890 135 (it had some kind of filter on and you wasn't able to seize at any point during the call) and Paraguay on 0800 890 595, outside of the capital city sometimes numbers in Paraguay would travel over C5 routes too. In addition to this pre-earthquake calls to certain parts of Haiti would travel over C5 lines when you called numbers outside of Port-au-Prince, post earthquake in 2011 they for obvious reasons no longer worked. As far as numbers I'd have to dig through my old notes which are put away goodness knows where. Cuba was a place that I was planning on scanning before I became too busy with life and dropped out, I believe they have (had?) a mixture of the latest Chinese stuff in Havana and some of the older Soviet era crossbar stuff.

    They are referred to as RATs, Remote Access Trojan. Trojan comes from the term Trojan Horse. Back in the AOL (or AO Hell), they were packaged as Punters, Flooders or MailBombs. As mentioned - not really hacking unless you're programming them yourself and finding ways to evade malware scans. Things like Sub7 are little apps that allow for administration operations on a Windows box. Various things like: editing the registry, taking screen shots, logging key strokes, retrieving passwords, sniffing sockets, etc... Then reporting this information by "phoning home". Defining "trojan", Remote Administration Tool, Spyware, Remote Access Tool; is really up to Malware scanning companies and intended use. For a while, the best backdoors were hacked version s of VNC (without an installer) with a few Microsoft remote tools found in Windows Sever Resource Kits. Its best to use things made for legitimate purposes and retool them for what one needs. If an executable is digitally signed by Microsoft it is usually automatically trusted by default in a lot host-based Firewalls and A.V. scanners.

    not sure, again probably depends on os/raid, but objectively don't see a reason why you couldn't repair a 1 in a live setting, other than sever performance degradation during the period its repairing, the read being 1/2 speed the whole time, and having to use read to fill up the other drive, which in 5 or 6 the performance would still degrade but not as much or for as long as they have the data spread among all of the drives. if you were really worried about it there is always the option of more drives, you could have some backup script or something, backup the 1 to a third drive once a week or something, and entirely unuse/power it otherwise, and then in the event of failure would just be to do the file changes from within that week and youd have a working pair again. or the obvious just a triplet used at all times, in which all 3 would have to fail to lose anything. where with 5 just 2 and you would probably lose a significant portion of the pot, depending on how the stripping is set up

    I figured we should start a list of countries that still use CCITT5 for international calls. It would be cool to get a list of country codes and prefixes. For testing this stuff I recommend using Blue Beep on DosBox, which is available from Text Files via the Wikipedia article. Use the one with the source code, as its more up to date. Check out this text file Blue Boxing in the Late 90s for more information on how this stuff works. The CIA World Factbook has information on the phone systems in use in every country in the world. World Factbook Numbers I have found so far that use it in some form: United States Toll Free International Direct Numbers 866-284-3437 - C5 Trunk to Malaysia (maybe) 888-647-6843 - C5 Trunk to Argentina via Sprint 877-655-0054 - C5 Trunk to Argentina via AT&T 877-278-9344 - C5 Trunk to Argenina via MCI

    I know 5ESS is still kicking, but was wondering it it's still supported in anywhich way. I believe Ericsson owns them? Do they still make parts or is it all refurbs? I don't recall Lucent making a gateway (VOIP/rack mount) version of the switch) unlike what Genband has done with the DMS, if I am also right too. Thanks!

    Strange telephone systems (from a westerner's viewpoint anyways) are pretty usual for Russia. The Soviet-era 300 MHz analog cellular system in eastern Russia and Siberia is still sometimes known to get relayed across the Pacific by the aging FLTSATCOM (maybe also UFO?) birds (essentially just simple downconverter-based FM "repeaters" that will happily relay any audio they hear as long as it falls within the transponders' passbands) along with the Brazilians on 250 MHz.

    They put in a couple every year. They don't all (but typically do) replace one when they're installed. Given the sluggish time frame, how many they're going to install is probably a question of how AT&T's politics work out for them in the long term. The current band of executives has been responsible for some borderline irrational decisions in the past, like grandfathering all non-IP services on their CLEC divisions in 2013. No, seriously. Their CLEC network was then and still is, aside from a few Sonuses, pretty much all circuit switches, and much of their voice over IP traffic is hauled to the customer over T1 circuits. It's like a halfbaked version of Apple's decision to remove the floppy drive/audio output/whatever else from their products.

    There is a good deal of wardialing software out there - generally, it just looks for modems. Some have options for voip trunking if you choose to use it. In my experience though, there really is no serious substitute at this time for just doing everything by hand.

    Yes and no. There's a lot of C5 trunks that're still out there. They're by no means the only the only way in and out of the country, though. For example, the island nation of Palau has trunks via Intelsat that use C5 (and g.726 apparently). But they also have another route in and out of the country. Then there's the Genesys meeting center. See, the company (now part of Intercall, actually. I have no idea how you'd sign up specifically for this platform) runs a conference service in the Asia Pacific region of the world, and strangely enough, there's two access numbers that'll terminate there over C5; 866-284-3437 and 3438. You might have to call them a few times to get a good route; it's sort of the luck of the draw. I think that one is a pretty clear case of tromboning. See, a RESPORG lookup shows the number goes over Verizon's ex-MCI/0222 network. The actual access number in Singapore, among other countries like Malaysia and Japan, are all available in random places on the internet. I've called all of them - or at least I think all of them from the exact same network, and not had any luck getting that route. A large conferencing company like this one would likely have the resources in place for this sort of operation too. For whatever it's worth, someone once mentioned to me they found a PIN for the conference (which by itself is pretty harmless; they're given out publicly, and can't be used to start a conference without the moderator PIN), and contacted an operator in the US from the service. At no point did it touch a C5 route. Then there's Argentina. Once again, MCI comes into the picture. Well, sorta. Like with the weird Malaysian thing, this route seems to only come into play in certain scenarios. If you try calling it, for example, over AT&T, you'll hear this; 877-655-0054. One C5 chirp. But over MCI? 877-278-9344. Two C5 chirps! No idea how that's routing exactly, but the really cool bit too is if you get the distant platform to hang up on you, you'll hear the sound of a reorder coming from the international gateway switch on AT&T's route. We think that's an EWSD; one revision of EWSD hardware will have call progress tones that fade sorta in and out like that reorder. There's another that for whatever reason, has completely different sounding call progress tones. Anyway, there's international access numbers for that Argentinan platform if you want them; http://www.telefonica.com.ar/telefoniafija/hogares/tarjetas/accesos_calling.asp . If you're wondering why exactly it is these exist in 2016, the answer is actually pretty simple: capacity. In the T1 standard American/Japanese/Canadian networks use, there's a capability to do what's called bit robbing. Basically, in a mu-Law or a-Law PCM stream, there's 8 bits per sample. If you have no other way of telling the network whether your phone is on or off hook, you can rob the eighth bit of every sample to do that. In the E1 standard (used everywhere else), you can't do this. Most of the time it doesn't matter, because you can dedicate one of the spare call channels to do something like SS7 (there's also some way to send inband tones over a dedicated signaling channel. I'm not sure exactly how that works for supervision). But in this case, they never did that - probably because they felt it was too important to sacrifice an entire call channel when they didn't need to. So since you can't rob any bits in the PCM stream, they have to use tones like on the analog carrier systems to let the network know whether your phone is on-hook or not. Anyway, assuming you're still awake after all that, you can try seizing these if you want. You're kinda on your own, though - the stakes for international telecommunications fraud are pretty damn high, and as such, the people who still use C5 or anything like it tend to be pretty good at making sure their equipment is the only thing that can seize it. My guess is once the seize tone is sent from the transmitting end, they won't let the trunk be seized again until the present call has hung up. This happens when the network sends a burst of 2600 back in your direction (it'll ignore it if it's sent from your direction), which at least in this case, will instantly throw you off the trunk. If you really want to get anywhere with this, you'll have to find some way to keep it from doing that when whatever is on the other end hangs up. EDIT: It also might be possible to seize the call before it goes offhook (makes the 2400 hertz cheep), but you'll have to be fast. That may not even be an option on something that answers instantly like this.

    Haha! As a customer, I look at Comcasts profits, and see that they are operating at less than 30% net profits, I say it's an upgrade needed for operations. Kind of like McDonalds whining that they don't have enough cows to keep up with people ordering Big Mac's. More customers eating more cows, means new farms to raise cattle. Not cry because paying customers are eating all your food. EDIT: don't you think spending billions reinventing in company stock instead of upgrading their network to handle Netflix "demand", shows they are putting assurances in a lot of future profit growth without upgrading to meet consumer demand?

    I don't know much at all about radio equipment. I was given 2 old hand-held radios, both Citizen TC-123's. I can't find anything about them online. About them: They have 3 preset channels (A,B,C), each with a pair of sockets for crystals. They also has a squelch dial. At the moment, it has 27.065 in the TX, 27.061 in the RX socket of channel A. (From what I've found online, this is now used as the emergency channel of modern CB) I've turned it on but haven't heard anything except for static. I can post pics of the inside if needed. 1) What type of radio would this be? Is this considered a ham radio? 2) Do I need a license to use it? 3) I'm assuming the sockets are so I can drop in new crystals to get other frequencies. How high would a unit like this be able to go? What frequency crystals should I try? 4) Would this be compatible with modern CB equipment if set on the same frequency? If so, can I set it to channel 19/whatever is most common? Where can I get new crystals 5) And finally, is it even worth the effort to play around with these, or should I just invest in modern stuff and save myself lots of effort? Thanks!

    We have an entire crate of crystals of all types where I work. They're mostly drop-in radio crystals (both the old wide style and modern small sizes). If you absolutely can't find them elsewhere, I could probably dig through the box and find about any frequency you'd want. I've got two small General Electric single-channel battery CB radios that use the drop-in crystals. They're from the 60's, and do in fact work with modern CB channels. I need to repair one of them, but we use the other in combination with vehicle-mounted CBs for communicating when someone goes hiking or hunting around here.

    From the crystals I think you're right.. it's a hand held CB. As to legality? Probably... most battery operated radios don't kick out too many watts. Hit it up and ask for a Radio Check... See if anyone answers. if you get some crazy cop talking bout this being a emergency only channel... tell him you're fixing to go camping or something.

    http://schoolisland.com/review/login.asp I guess it's so teachers can give their students online take-home tests. A friend of mine says it's tremedously easy to hack if you know what you're doing (which I don't). I figured that there might be people here who would find some fun stuff on there.

    What is microsoft frontpage? Ive heard about it on certain sites. Is it useful? Is it more of a language or software, or can you incorperate HTML or anything with it?

    Its theft. All they can legally do is ask you to hand it over, and if you do then you give up your rights to not have it searched as well. Refuse, and answer any question they ask you with another question. There was a ACLU Video posted a while back, watch that for more tips.

    Nokia owns it now. The ex-Lucent team still treats it like their baby if I understand correctly. They still do support for the switch and sell replacement parts for it. The DMS family (including if I'm not mistaken the CS-2000; the C20 - the product Genband now markets is hardware-wise somewhat different), despite being forsaken by Genband, has ex-Nortel people looking after it: http://www.zttechsol.com/products-supported/switching-systems/dms-100/ .

    Because it is a common occurance in this forum in particular, I thought that I would post a clarification for anyone who may post here that INTENT is a very important part of your post. Intent is a legal term that shows what your goal is and is similar to a confession (in advance) to what you are trying to accomplish. I think an example may clarify... BAD QUESTION: GOOD QUESTION: The reason why these posts are different is the intent of the posts. The first example is a request for assistance in doing something illegal. This is not (necessarily) a statement towards the MORALITY of this action, but more to the LEGALITY of asking here in these forums. By stating your intent, that makes me liable for any actions that may result from the responses posted here. It can be claimed that I not only allowed, but encouraged it by allowing the thread to exist and allow responses to it. This is one of the reasons that we have certain rules. The second post is better because it does not state any intended purpose. It is a simple question and we do not know what your intent it. I trust that anyone posting like this is doing it for reasons of their own and are probably testing out the security on their own box that they control. I give all users the benefit of the doubt. But if you post something that explicitly states some intent, then the moderating team is forced to take action. I also remind our users to LET THE MODERATORS HANDLE THESE. Do not quote the rules at people because ultimately only the moderators are trained (and yes, they do get training) to be able to intepret this. Hacking is about exploring. And breaking/hacking wordpress (or anything else) is a valid topic and very much encouraged for discussion. You just have to be doing it for the right reasons. If you are doing it on your box (or assumed to be doing it on your box) then this is good, healthy curiosity and an educational pursuit. This is great and we welcome that pursuit. All I am saying is "THINK BEFORE YOU POST". Thank you.

    umm I think people understood me wrong, I'm sorry again if I gave the wrong question, like I already said I want to learn more stuff, and my main goal isn't about cracking websites,systems and stuff, I just want to learn hacking in general. And I don't have any problems with my gf, (i got her password for myspace) and I'm sure I wouldn't do anything stupid like that just to check if she is cheating on me. Just Note that I'm not cracker, I want to learn hacking.(Definition is here:http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid14_gci212220,00.html)

    I'm using an SSH tunnel / SOCKS tunnel to proxy my traffic to a VPS somewhere in the world. I'm establishing the connection using the following. ssh -D <port> <hostname> Then I point Firefox to localhost on the declared port number and away I go. From here, I'm under the assumption that my traffic is safe once it enters the tunnel and leaves my computer off into the internet on its way to the proxy server. I guess my questions are: 1. What are the security implications here? Anything I should be aware of? 2. Anything I shouldn't do while routing traffic to the proxy? 3. What about DNS leaks?
