    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.

    Ohm, you obviously get off on policing binrev. Seriously, I've seen you crush countless topics with your sense of superior morality. The only thing that impresses me about you is that you always find some way to condescend. You've got a real talent.

    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?

    There's few things in this world that remain shrouded in secrecy for twenty years, but 711 numbers and their foundation have done an excellent job of exactly that. That all changed though, with a post in the some numbers thread. More specifically, with two numbers: (800) 860 0169 and (800) 860 0867. Don't bother checking, they're both the same. When you call either, crunchy, 20 year old ADPCM crackles to life with "This is the West Interactive audio system. Enter your access code now." The access codes as it turns out, are pretty easy to guess. The passwords, equally so. I'll share a list at the end of this. But assuming you're not lazy or intimidated by phones and actually called, give it 7278 and password 7278. Then, push 3 to test the program. Sound familiar? So what, you may ask, is this thing exactly? The program itself is just a placeholder for unassigned numbers. Nothing special. The rest of the system is something else, though. Explore what I've found, and help continue the hunt if you like it. 0 - Reads back 811-000-0000 + invalid entry recording 1 - Doesn't allow call counter, allows blocked caller list, invalid, but works with password 0, 2 (plays announcement asking you to call 800-366-5588 with password 0) 2 - Invalid 3 - Invalid 4 - Doesn't allow call counter, invalid 5 - Reads back unit ID, line number, ACD test application 6 - Doesn't allow call counter, invalid 7 - Invalid 8 - Invalid? 9 - Reads back unit ID, line number, call time (local), plays fake busy signal 10 - <unassigned or new passcode> 11 - Invalid 12 - Doesn't allow call counter, invalid 13 - Hangs up 14 - Invalid 15 - <unassigned or new passcode> 16 - <unassigned or new passcode> 17 - Invalid 18 - <unassigned or new passcode> 19 - Doesn't allow prompt recording, ShopNBC IVR 20 - Invalid 21 - Invalid 22 - <unassigned or new passcode> 23 - <unassigned or new passcode> 24 - <unassigned or new passcode> 25 - <unassigned or new passcode> 26 - <unassigned or new passcode> 30 - Invalid (old psychic line) 96 - <unassigned or new passcode> 97 - <unassigned or new passcode> 98 - <unassigned or new passcode> 99 - Recorded beeps (x3) 00 - Reads back ? 01 - <unassigned or new passcode> 02 - <unassigned or new passcode> 000 - <unassigned or new passcode> 099 - <unassigned or new passcode> 100 - Doesn't allow prompt recording, invalid 101 - ShopNBC IVR 102 - Invalid 103 - <unassigned or new passcode> 104 - Prompts for APN number 105 - <unassigned or new passcode> 106 - <unassigned or new passcode> 107 - <unassigned or new passcode> 108 - <unassigned or new passcode> 109 - <unassigned or new passcode> 110 - <unassigned or new passcode> 111 - Doesn't allow call counter, invalid 112 - <unassigned or new passcode> 113 - <unassigned or new passcode> 114 - Allows blocked caller updating, Invalid 115 - <unassigned or new passcode> 116 - <unassigned or new passcode> 117 - <unassigned or new passcode> 122 - <unassigned or new passcode> 123 - Invalid 124 - No menu, hangs up promptly 125 - <unassigned or new passcode> 150 - <unassigned or new passcode> 166 - <unassigned or new passcode> 170 - <unassigned or new passcode> 180 - <unassigned or new passcode> 190 - <unassigned or new passcode> 200 - <unassigned or new passcode> 202 - <unassigned or new passcode> 211 - <unassigned or new passcode> 222 - Invalid 300 - <unassigned or new passcode> 303 - <unassigned or new passcode> 311 - <unassigned or new passcode> 322 - <unassigned or new passcode> 333 - No menu, Call accounts facility temporarily unavailable recording 400 - <unassigned or new passcode> 444 - Invalid 499 - <unassigned or new passcode> 500 - No options, immediately reads back 800-404-4890 and transfers 501 - <unassigned or new passcode> 502 - <unassigned or new passcode> 555 - Allows blocked caller update, invalid 599 - <unassigned or new passcode> 600 - <unassigned or new passcode> 611 - <unassigned or new passcode> 666 - Invalid 699 - <unassigned or new passcode> 700 - <unassigned or new passcode> 711 - <unassigned or new passcode> 777 - <unassigned or new passcode> 799 - <unassigned or new passcode> 800 - <unassigned or new passcode> 809 - <unassigned or new passcode> 810 - <unassigned or new passcode> 811 - Allows blocked caller update, <recorded beep tone> 812 - <unassigned or new passcode> 813 - <unassigned or new passcode> 888 - Allows blocked caller update, invalid 899 - <unassigned or new passcode> 900 - Invalid 901 - <unassigned or new passcode> 902 - <unassigned or new passcode> 958 - <unassigned or new passcode> 998 - <unassigned or new passcode> 999 - Same as main IVR on toll-free 000 - <unassigned or new passcode> 080 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0000 - Doesn't allow prompt recording, invalid 0001 - Invalid 0002 - Invalid 0003 - Reads back unit/line #, invalid call time + hangup 0005 - Invalid 0006 - Reads back 3547-179, phone number, caller #, "sorry, you did not ring" 0007 - Gives unit ID, line number, call time, xfers to operator 0008 - <invalid application> 0009 - Taco poll 0010 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0011 - Gives unit ID, line number, call time (local + epoch?), hangs up 0012 - Invalid 0013 - Voice capture thingie 0014 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0015 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0016 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0017 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0018 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0019 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0020 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0022 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0030 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0033 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0044 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0053 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0054 - <unassigned or new passcode> 0055 - Gives unit ID, line number, call time (local), billing test?

    I picked this up in a heap of old computer, radio, and telephone equipment, from a guy who had been an engineer in the Navy, then an engineer/lineman/programmer at Bell Labs in NJ: It's an *actual* milliwatt! I can't find the BSP for it online, but I did find a hardcopy on eBay, so I'll scan that in when I get it. Battery test points, this is the battery (well, the top of an old one): 45V "B batteries" were common in old radios and other higher-than-we're-used-to voltages were common in other types of test gear. For instance, a kick meter uses a different 45V battery (looks like a giant 9V and is still made). Top of the internal circuit subassembly, the battery goes in the space seen at the top of the picture: Here's the circuit: Typical Western Electric, potted networks, switchboard jacks, and expensive resistors and capacitors. Not yet sure if the pot varies pitch or level. You can see there's a single very old GE transistor in a metal can package clipped to the side of the uppermost (4002A) network, presumably the only active component in the circuit.

    So I think I found a bridge that should work great; 510-940-0102. It's a ringout like all the rest, in an urban area so least cost routing won't be an issue, unused, and isn't going through any extra garbage. Barring any problems, this should be the last change.

    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.

    So the title says a lot... I broke down and am getting POTS service to my house via Windstream for funsies. Well, not just for funsies, there's some influence in the name of 'research'. *snicker snicker* So I want to get some software to jan hundred groups with audio (for sure) and call progress detection (would be nice), and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. Yes, I will accept "Don't use Win10" as advice if someone can give me a better solution. Also, I'll need a good modem solution for a laptop so I can do this.

    Unfortunately OpenBTS is GSM only. But there's at least one hobbyist made AMPS basestation. http://www.idesignz.org/AMPS/AMPS_BS.html Some old AMPS cellphone testsets available as surplus can likely also function as a limited basestation. The GSM and NMT one's do that. Now if I could just source one for the NMT450 network that used to be used around here...

    Point of Interconnect. I think the basic idea is like if you have a switch that serves a large number of ratecenters, you'll need a trunk group from it to the tandem switch serving it. So let's say for example you've got a switch in Washington DC or wherever, but you want to plug in a bunch of channel banks and give dialtone to random people in the Blue Ridge mountains. You can totally run some cable down there and do it, but the problem is, your switch homes off the intra-LATA tandem in DC as it should. To accomadate the local calling area of everyone you're going to serve, you also need to get some trunks to the intra-LATA tandem in, say, Culpeper, and establish an exchange for them to be reached on/to reach the other local exchanges. When you're doing that, you're not allocating it to the switch, but to a point of interconnect between you and the Culpeper tandem, and the CLLI code will reflect that. Because regulatory regimes are stupid, you can't legally (to my knowledge) give free local calls from your DC subscribers to the Culpeper area even though you have trunks to it from your switch; they have to use a long distance provider to dial that. Coin and operator calls are a little more of a grey area. I know from Portland, they have trunks from TOPS to the Salem tandem, and you'd hit that trunk group making ACTS calls. I dunno what those trunks were considered legally, but you could theoretically set up an automatic operator IVR to get around that restriction. That's how I understand it anyway. Can someone who has more of a clue about this chime in?

    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.

    http://www.digitalbond.com/blog/2013/10/22/call-yourself-a-hacker-lose-your-4th-amendment-rights/ Apparently saying that you like hacking on things without specifying "things" means you're automatically assumed to be compromising systems and that you're going to destroy evidence so they might as well take all of your equipment preemptively. So I guess hacking together a high water sensor for the basement, since I'm calling it "hacking," means I'll destroy evidence in legal investigations and that I like to break into systems I don't own all the time. Bullshit.

    You've probably been hearing quite a bit about hackers recently. According to the mass media, hackers have been holding Hollywood hostage, are working for the North Korean government, and are basically equivalent to terrorists. Some of this we've heard before and some is just completely out of left field. As one small part of the vast and diverse hacker community, we felt compelled to not only say something, but to do something. First, let's clear one thing up: We have little remaining ill will towards Sony for their part in the MPAA lawsuit against us in 2000, when we were hauled into federal court for publishing a computer program that would allow Linux users to view DVDs. We learned a valuable lesson about corporate America, the government, and the power of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We saw how the media could be so easily manipulated by the powers that be. And, while we lost the case, we became the first actual victims of the DMCA, and had the privilege of being the ones to warn the rest of the country what was ahead. That fight has been going on ever since. And Sony played a valuable role in motivating us. We thank them for that. As hackers, we have a strong commitment to freedom of speech, which we regularly express through our magazine, our radio shows, our conferences, and any other medium we can get our hands on. Most in the hacker world share in these very basic values. We've protested films in the past when they've been unfair to the hacker community. It tends to freak out those in power when they realize hackers are angry at them, but most of those fears are based on paranoia and ignorance as to what the hacker community is really all about. And cutting off speech, silencing unpopular views, and avoiding controversy are not what we're about. As you have undoubtedly heard, Sony has decided to cancel the release of their controversial film "The Interview." They've done this because of a single, vague threat that is tantamount to something we've all seen at one time or another on an IRC channel and not thought twice about. By focusing on this threat, however, Sony can attempt to extricate itself from the controversy and the immensely stupid movie plot it agreed to produce - and blame the whole thing on hackers, albeit North Korean ones. (They might also escape liability for their inadequate computer security by claiming the massive compromise of their systems was equivalent to a terrorist act. But that's another story, or possibly a whole new movie.) In their gross generalization, and with the help of the mass media, the entire hacker community is being painted with a very broad and dark brush. We have decided to call their bluff. To demonstrate that hackers have no interest in suppressing speech, quashing controversy, or being intimidated by vague threats, we ask that Sony allow the hacker community to distribute "The Interview" for them on the 25th of December. Now, we're aware that Sony may refer to this distribution method as piracy, but in this particular case, it may well prove to be the salvation of the motion picture industry. By freely offering the film online, millions of people will get to see it and decide for themselves if it has any redeeming qualities whatsoever - as opposed to nobody seeing it and the studios writing it off as a total loss. Theaters would be free from panic as our servers would become the target of any future vague threats (and we believe Hollywood will be most impressed with how resilient peer-to-peer distribution can be in the face of attacks). Most importantly, we would be defying intimidation, something the motion picture industry doesn't quite have a handle on, which is surprising considering how much they've relied upon it in the past. We sincerely hope Sony doesn't refuse this offer because of the potentially bitter irony of having hackers show them how to run their own industry. Perhaps if they had spent less time in court and more time learning to stand up for the values they allegedly hold (not to mention installing a little security on their systems and protecting the privacy of their employees and associates), this little bit of drama might never have had to happen. But then, where would Hollywood be without drama? Even more vital than ensuring that the public gets to experience (and judge) art for themselves is the need for hackers to show their true colors. These are not the colors of terrorists, bullies, or government agents, but rather those of creative individuals who can cause all kinds of mischief and, in the process, come up with unique solutions and ingenious ways of preserving freedom. We believe it's the latter category that really scares those in power and is likely at the heart of all of the wild fear-mongering we're hearing today. Failure to correct these misconceptions now could easily assure future crackdowns that will affect all of us. We will be preparing a section of our website for screening of "The Interview" on December 25th. If Sony agrees, we will work our asses off to make this happen. If they don't give us permission to do this, then we will point to any sites that have managed to obtain the film. The address to write to for anyone from Sony, North Korean officials, hackers around the world, or the general public is interview@2600.com. Censorship and fear must be fought at every opportunity. We made that point while opposing Sony in the past. Now we must make that point again, this time for their benefit. http://www.2600.com/?q=content/offer-sony-2600

    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.

    I could write lots on this, but Ive just posted some notes I made on reading it the first time. I don't care about the layout and readability, all that is just window dressing to pretty it up, Im interested in the meat of the contents. I think it misses the big elephant in the closet that causes the whole issue of security to arise and be such a shock in the first place. Computers are NOT a black box system. They are a framework which lets you hang what modules you like off them to do various tasks. Modules == software programs. Thats the reason users end up shocked at their first virus, because they missed this after treating them as a switch on and go consumer device. The car and toilet analogies dont work for me either, to change the oil in a car needs some prior understanding of the car, the quantity of oil, the grade of oil, what quality of oil to use, the frequency of changing it, in fact a whole bunch of factors which understanding the need for, bootstraps into a understanding of the car as a system. To change the oil in a car with abstraction, would be to take it to the garage and pay them to do so. The oil still gets changed, but you dont have to know anything that way apart from how to pay for it. People are reading your paper because they want to learn about how to change their computer/network's oil and some of its inner workings, not just take it a garage. "First and foremost, one needs to accept that their information is fundamentally safe, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to worry. " Its not fundamentally safe. Otherwise they wouldnt need to worry would they? We could all go and procreate with stunning playgirl models instead of reading your paper. In fact, its fundementally unsafe, and we must just take our best measures to mitigate our exposure to the risk. the basics of network security :- "Vulnerability assessment is the very first," The very first step is to want to understand and secure it. Vulnerability assessment is how you quantify how secure it is according to some metrics once youve taken that decision. Its a small but important distinction. It puts the first step about securing a network as wanting and caring enough about a networked system to want to secure it. And we're in the caring for things business in a way. Layer 2 The Data Link Layer: Local layer 2 attacks, at the moment are common and more disturbingly, mind numbingly simple. Theyre only mind numbingly simple because script kiddies are using someone elses abstraction without understanding it therefore without the tool its horribly complex so you rely on the tool to deal with all that. Having to rely on a tool that I dont understand how works isnt simple, its complex to me. Im trusting it knows best... You could say "there are automated tools to perform this which do not rely on the attacker having a deep understanding of the attack vector or what is being done." , it'd be more accurate. Even a tool used like that is is not mind numbingly simple, not to 99% of the computer using populace, some of which your hoping to catch with this tutorial in some way. A analogy here would be that you do not have to understand how a gun works to kill someone with it. The script kiddies dont understand the gun/tool but the end results are still devistating. Also I think your fine china udp analogy doesnt work , I thought about it a bit and I'd go with something like "udp is like shouting your message to someone and *hoping* they hear in the manner of a newspaper seller, and tcp is the same, except the seller waits for each person to shout back to say they received and understand what was shouted. If you have a LOT of data which it doesnt matter if a little gets lost on the way (streamed music for eg), the udp is more efficient because you dont have to wait for everyone to shout back they got it." First and foremost, one needs to start thinking of their network as something tangible, something that can be stolen, because make no doubt about it, if it's too vulnerable, it can, and more than likely will be compromised. :- To help you flesh out this bit , the something that can be stolen is the DATA contained therein and the computational resources. Your stopping people stealing your information to use it on their own systems to their gain, or stopping them stealing your network to co-opt it into a scheme under their own control, be it to attack other networks directly, to join a botnet or spam etc. You think the above is bad, you want to see it when I get my red pen out on something I dont like. The intent and effort your putting in is great, I hope the above comments help you think about the contents and concepts your trying to outline.

    As everyone has already heard, Google Chrome OS or Chromium OS source code was released a couple weeks ago. There have already been a few attempts at compiling it and getting it to work on devices. If anyone wants to try out Chromium OS safely and see what's up, you can use VirtualBox. 1.)Download and Install VirtualBox. 2.)Download the compiled Chromium OS in virtual hard drive format. [you can get this off torrents or PM me...I'm not going to get into another pissing war over TPB. The link is legal and the package is legal but out of respect for the board I'm not going to post the link.] 3.)Creat a new VM and during the hard drive set-up select the pre-existing hard drive option and select the downloaded Chromium OS. 4.)Create a bogus Gmail account...your real one, if you have it, will work too. 5.)Log into Chromium OS and hack away! It is very slow running even on my Quad Core...but this isn't even a beta...this is a hack beta:) I took some snapshots of what you would see: Notes: pretty typical. As you can see or actually maybe not, it will autofill @gmail after you enter in a user name. From a security perspective, since Google is making you live in the 'cloud' physical security is now virtually moot as my wireshark run picked up my username in the clear. Although my password was hashed this is not sufficient if people are going be exposed to an attack everytime they open up and use their Chromium OS device. Notes: Here is a screen shot of a failed certificate. This was caused, I think, by my computer having two gmail accounts inadvertantly opened at one time. Although it doesn't lock you out of the OS and hence your device (crazy legal reasons naturally) it does lock you out of Google's 'cloud.' You can still surf the web and access the device through the OS but this is naturally a reduced experience from Google's perspective. Notes: Here is the 'desktop.' Looks very familiar. Notes: Built in apps...all are web based, even the calculator. Notes: The good stuff.

    I'd also like to mention that since the password database was stolen you should consider the password you used on these forums to be compromised. The passwords were hashed of course, but we all know hashes can be reversed. If you use this password anywhere else, change it as soon as possible. I'm not sure how Invision hashes passwords and if rainbow tables will be able to break them, but it's safer to assume they're all compromised.

    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. ( 900! )

    black hats are malicious hackers, whereas white hats are hackers with benign intentions. it's a good vs bad generalization. as far as their stated mission against full disclosure sites, I think they're ridiculous. they don't stand a chance in taking down every single full-disclosure site, and they won't be able to stop the act of full disclosure. to me, it looks like they want to try and make it easier for them to hoard exploits It isn't about hoarding exploits or them personally trying to take down all disclosure sites. What they are fighting for is for people to stop public disclosure (eg. posting to milw0rm) The main purpose is to drive the hacker scene back underground away from the public. From the papers they've written and other information it seems that the main reason for this is to stop people from making money off other people's work (the white hats) which I do agree with. A lot of people basically fuck up, go to jail, and when they come out have enough internet fame that they are able to become "IT Professionals" which is stupid because if you look at the reason they were caught originally, generally it is because they were dumb. You also have all the companies and individuals walking around penetration testing and doing consulting work who are merely using other people's work (exploits from milw0rm, random tools they find, etc.) without any real knowledge of them. They are making money off the work of others. Lastly full disclosure enabled script kiddies to look for a video that shows exactly what to do and provides packaged exploits for them to do it. They can randomly run around owning everything they find running that particular version. So basically every penetration tester needs to write their own exploits and tools or they dont deserve to get paid? That kind of thinking doesnt make any sense. The only reason I can think of for having a non disclosure attitude is to hoard their precious 0days. Ill admit it would be slightly "cooler" if the hacker scene was more underground (have you seen some of those "hacker" videos on youtube :thumbsd: ) but in the long term more public knowledge of security is beneficial for all.

    If you want to use Asterisk, this post explains how to make a diverter, and I'm sure there are other posts here that flat how explain how to set it up for spoofing. Otherwise, use Spoofcard. The Orange box and Vermilion Box are relatively useless, albeit inventive.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a reference on abbreviations on a PCB board? I know R means resistor and TB means terminal block. What are the other letters that can show up on a PCB and what do they stand for? *Edit* Just found this: A = Assembly B = Fan BT = Battery C = Capacitor CB = Circuit Breaker 4-1 CR = Diode D = Diode DL = Delay Line DS = Lamp E = Terminal F = Fuse FL = Filter J = Connector, Recept K = Relay L = Inductor M = Meter P = Connector, Plug Q = Transistor, Semiconductor R = Resistor, Potentiometer RT = Temperature Sensing Element S = Switch T = Transformer TB = Terminal Block TP = Test Point U = Integrated Circuit V = Vacuum Tube, Neon Bulb, Photocell, etc. VR = Zener Diode W = Wire, Cable X = Socket Y = Crystal Unit
