    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :-(

    So I just logged into binrev using this: it automatically generates, stores, and types passwords and looks like a usb-keyboard to your computer. 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.

    I've worked on this project for quite a while, and have discussed it on the conference, but have never officially posted recordings on here. There is a large presence of analog and electromechanical switches still in service in the former Soviet countries. The following are 3 recordings of me successfully boxing some of these switches: East Ukraine, ATSK Crossbar Using SF (in-band 2600 dial pulse) Signaling -- seizing and SFing another number: http://technotite.com/SF-exampUKR1.wav West Russia, Crossbar Using SF (in-band 2600 dial pulse) Signaling -- seizing and SFing another number: http://technotite.com/SF-exampRUS1.wav East Ukraine, Crossbar Using R1.5 (weird bi-directional MF protocol using R1 tones, used in CIS countries) - seizing and MFing another number: http://technotite.com/R1.5-examp1.wav

    If you dial extension 8411-8414 it will make the automated voice say "Lane ""1-4"" Most pharmacies dont have more than two lanes. So if youre there waiting for a script, dial ext 8413 to hear the voice on the loudspeaker say "lane 3" and watch the employees confusion. its hilarious.

    So all credit goes to Ramsaso; he pointed this out on the bridge last night. If you have a T-Mobile phone, try calling 712-451-0011. You should get a recording saying they now charge 1 cent a minute to call it, even if you're on their unlimited plan.

    I got this bag phone last month and was playing around with it to see if there was some tiny chance that it could connect to any network. As I suspected, there aren't any crumbling remains of AMPS networks anywhere near me. An interesting feature about this phone is there's an "Aux Out" which apparently was for sending faxes. Can't imagine lugging all of that around and plugging everything into the 12v jack in your car...

    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.

    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. ...seriously.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    So today, I was thinking about a few people I'd talked to recently - they told me they were into the idea of scanning, but because of their lack of free time/direction, it was hard to find space in their lives for this sort of thing. So I was thinking; should I build a thing with my Dialogic box that automatically dials ranges that look potentially fun, and let people review the recordings/manually make a description of what's actually on the line? There could be a rough level of signal detection using the DSP; enough to let you search by what you'd like to see most; whether it be recordings, VMBs, modems or dialtones or whatever, and let you select by region or operating company. Maybe some more powerful signal detection could be tacked on at a later point that could recognize certain manufacturers or switch types. This would be a pretty significant undertaking, so I'd like to know if anybody is interested before I actually do this. If you don't actively scan and would like to, would this help turn the tide for you a little?

    Yes and no, AMPS was narrowband (+-30 kHz (15 kHz deviation)) FM when TV audio was wideband FM (~200 kHz IIRC) (mono baseband was around 20 kHz BW/10 kHz dev, then stereo difference and SAP was above that, similar to an FM radio station except the subcarrier offsets were different). The frequencies were in former TV channels 70-83 but those were reassigned for telephone and 2-way radio usage back in the mid or late 1980s. This is why many older TV sets and VCRs could monitor AMPS transmissions by playing with the fine-tuning controls when on those channels. (Somebody please feel free to correct me on those bandwidths and deviations!)

    Changes of FCC regulation, lack of market demand and general obsolescence. In 2008 when the FCC modified rules to make AMPS carriage optional, most telcos were really quick to get rid of their AMPS services. There wasn't as much money to be had in SCPC AMPS services as there is in multiplex digital services. Funny thing though, depending where you are, if you are lucky enough you can sometimes find very small private (corporate?) AMPS base stations still in place. Usually corporate internal PBX patches I think. A friend and I came across one on a Moto brick fone a couple years ago that we believe was either at Boeing (Gresham, Ore.) or Wafertech (Camas, Wash.). What you can do with it (if anything) depends how the host PBX is configured, how big the company is and how far abandoned-in-place the base is. You'd probably stand a better chance of finding one at a huge multi/national headquarters or field office than a smaller local or regional-based company.

    Yeah, if you're looking at old scan textfiles then a carrier is a modem carrier. You can identify them by their metal screeching though you should find recordings to differentiate between a fax carrier and a modem carrier signal. You could connect to them over voip, I think, using a terminal program like Term90 or HyperTerminal. Okay, okay, I don't know offhand of any modern dial-up terminal programs. Guess I should research that. Might be a ton of BBSes under my nose and me without a trusty US Robotics.

    I recently purchased a used Foundry/Brocade FastIron 24-port gigabit switch to try out. 24 gigabit ports, 4 of which are SFP (can be various kinds of fiber), an expansion bay that supports 10 gig modules, and switchable 802.3af PoE on all ports. Very nice hardware! The OS is very similar to Cisco IOS, and their documentation/command reference is excellent. I bought it used, I think I paid under $50 shipped -- there may be a thread on it elsewhere on the forums. Overall I'm super happy with it, would recommend Brocade for business/commercial hardware. I've also had very good experiences with Allied Telesis (used to be Allied Telesyn) products. They make a solid line of managed and unmanaged switches. They aren't as feature rich as HP, Brocade, or Cisco, but the price reflects that. Most of the admin is better done through the web interface, I didn't like working with the CLI, whereas I prefer the CLI on my Cisco and Foundy/Brocade hardware. I really like Allied Telesis' smaller workgroup switches (4-8 port units) as you can get them with a built-in power supply -- no wall wart or line lump.

    I just use my POTS line for the most part. Occasionally, calling cards too for international. They're ideal for that sort of thing since a lot of CO numbers don't go offhook. Finding them in the first place might well end up costing you more money then the actual scan.

    Hrmph. DDoS isn't "hacking" and it's lame. Botnets can be interesting, but not for what you want to do (malicious activity). You'd be better off spending your time on better ventures. IE - "real hacking". There's a ton of ways you can get involved which don't involve destruction and disturbance of services. Hardware hacking, System & network security, etc.

    The network is obviously not yours, and you do not have authorized use over it, so yes it is still illegal. I seriously doubt anyone will give you the response you are looking for. I suggest forgetting about the prank and to make out with as many high school chicks as you can while you are young, and that is still legal.

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.

    Has anyone seen this news? I'll paste this article on it below (with link) : Microsoft Cofee leaks onto the web Microsoft Cofee leaks onto the web No use crying over it By Alexandra Pullin Monday, 9 November 2009, 14:18 MICROSOFT'S DIGITAL FORENSICS software has been spotted on a file-sharing site, available for all to download. Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor (COFEE) is a forensics tool that fits on a USB drive for the police to use in PC forensics. The software is free to police forces around the world and helps access details about crimes such as identity theft, online fraud, child pornography and illegal filesharing before criminals can wipe the information. It's reportedly illegal for unauthorised people to download and use the software. According to the Vole it takes the average bobbie "with even minimal computer experience" less than ten minutes to master the program. "This enables the officer to take advantage of the same common digital forensics tools used by experts to gather important volatile evidence, while doing little more than simply inserting a USB device into the computer," said Microsoft. The Vole and police are worried that cyber criminals could analyse COFEE and write code that would identify and intercept it, securely wiping incriminating data from their hard drives. COFEE requires Windows XP but it does have some Windows Vista support. According to company insiders, Microsoft is developing a new version of COFEE that will be released next year for Windows Vista and Windows 7. ยต -------------------------- Microsoft's page on this app : COFEE There are in fact several sites featuring it for download, including a few torrents I found. Anyone have an opinion on this? Edit : I've seen this program on a certain torrent site which has 1 downloader's comment. The comment was a fake, claiming the torrent seems fake because it contains various zips with lots of rar files in it. I happen to know this particular download has none of this in it and was legit, therefore the downloading party is either stoned and was seeing things or more likely someone "concerned" who was trying to discourage people from downloading it (a.k.a. hoping to scare criminals away thinking it's a bad download). Very interesting.

    to make it the most useless peice of shit that waste your time? I can't find a way to make it practical for casual use. :: It's so hard to use, I'm crying with tears ;( It has to be hard because it is so versatile. Slackware makes no assumptions for the user, it is up to the user to dictate the use. Why should someone have to put up with X and that sort of stuff if they're setting up a server? What if the person wants to configure it differently from you? Why should they deal with your cookie cutter defaults? You set it up however you want, everyone else does it their way. As an example, you could either go to McDonald's or you could make your own burger. One is harder, one is easier, but if you're willing to take the time, the homemade burger will more than likely be better. (In this analogy LFS would be like slaughtering the cow with your bare hands ) If you want something preconfigured choose a distro specifically for your use, but if you want to do it yourself be prepared for some difficulties.

    I feel slightly split by this. On the one hand it's nice to see a company with the deep pockets of Google pushing open source software and i hope this will bring more people to Linux, or at least make them aware of it and appreciate it for its strengths. On the other hand i would hate to see Google have such a monopoly. If they control the cloud and they control your computer then they pretty much have everything. Way too much for a single company, especially one who makes so much money from data mining. On top of that i dont see what's so special about this. Isnt this just a linux kernel with a customer window manager and chrome? I havent read the blog yet so maybe someone could elaborate.

    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.

    Dear Superheroes, This is Zearle. I am in graduate school and I am decided to write a paper on the community. I seek to do what I did with the song, tell our story, explain our position, tell them why we do what we do. I do not seek to bring any heat onto the community, expose anyone, twist the truth, or give them the ammunition they need to cause us damage. My brother and I are going to co-write the paper. I am looking for (anonymous) text interviews, audio interviews, and anything you all feel will explain the reason we believe in open source, filesharing, and the uncovering of secrets. I am going to prove that YOU instigated a change in the production of media (movies, video, music, software, websites and a thousand others) historically. I am going to show that the unlocking of software directly related to the explosion of new media in the hands of the people. I love you all and I am taking this to the next level. I'm going to flip the script on the powers that be so hard that in the end we will be celebrated for changing the world and putting our ideology into action. It has been my schoolwork that had stopped my ability to record and release "hackers and crackers 2.0." This has made me feel terrible. I feel eternally indebted to the community and I have been thinking how to tell your story and world view. You show me how to manage this the right way. This is for you my friends. Thank you for your toil and hard work. You and I know what this movement has done for the people. Just to make sure everyone knows I am who I say I am.
