  1. Just coded an XML php application to read email from a POP3 account, and display it on the phone. Download from: More info:
  2. Use the "I've forgotten my password" feature to reset it.
  3. Binrev was hacked this morning (for further details see ) A backup from the 24th July has been restored. Unfortunately any posts from the 24th-29th have been lost. You will need to use the "I've forgotten my password" feature to reset your account password. In the process of restoring the forum files a backdoor was discovered, therefore a decision was taken to only restore the database. This means that custom avatars, attachments, gallery images will not show up until we have had a chance to review them for further backdoors. If you see any non file related issues with the forums (missing posts from before 24th etc) post here. Edit by Ohm: If you have any troubles resetting your password, you can email me at
  4. No further backdoors were found in the files, therefore they have been restored. Post here if you see any broken image tags.
  5. StankDawg has asked me to mention that the site is now being transitioned away from him and over to a new team and that he will no longer by running things.
  6. TSOK now seems to be called sok-media. Defcon recording are available from
  7. I am uploading stream rips to
  8. Looks like they shut down more than the buy page - whole site seems to be down.
  9. Has anyone used the BT Web21C SDK? I only just discovered it - apparently allows you to do stuff like setup conference calls, start calls between regular phone lines / SIP endpoints, and has a VXML type service.
  10. This should interest Dual The Register: Introducing the latest hacker exploit (War Phoning),,t460-s2123677,00.html
  11. In my experience the GPS antenna needs a relatively unobstructed view of the sky to work - however that is slightly odd since apparently the SiRFstarIII chipset (which it uses) is meant to be one of the better ones. Perhaps a different antenna would perform better, e.g. under a car. According to wikipedia:
  12. The only reason?
  13. I just got this on my home servers honeypot: Tue Sep 17 09:31:57 IMAP2 connection from Sep 17 09:31:57 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:32:23 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:36:45 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:36:55 Telnet login attempted from user: admin, password: adminTue Sep 17 09:37:06 Telnet login attempted from user: {filtered}, password: {filtered}Tue Sep 17 09:37:12 Telnet login attempted from user: , password: Tue Sep 17 09:48:59 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:48:59 IMAP2 connection from Sep 17 09:49:25 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:53:16 Telnet connection from Sep 17 09:53:22 Telnet login attempted from user: {filtered}, password: sadasThis is the first attack I have had by an actual person, on my home server and I must say its good to know there are still people out there. Not that I encourage people to hack my home server - which is why i'm not posting its address! My honeypot has been up for about 2 months or so, and apart from a few automatic port scans ive got nothing. Imagine my surprise when I got the above logs. This person was sure thorough! (although they did resort to the use of an automated tool to attack my web server, I forgive them as they at least had a go at my telnet server by hand) Where you see {filtered} is where I have taken out my real name. The full log is also up at
  14. If anyone wishes to digg this article you can do so here:
  15. I have another possible use: To beat speeding tickets. Apparently in the UK (according to this article on the BBC News website) speed cameras use the radio time signal. I am not sure how frequently the cameras check their time, but if it is real time you could drive around broadcasting some date / time years in the future, and likely be able to get the ticket invalidated for having an obviously incorrect date / time.
  16. The pubdate was being changed when a show was edited, therefore it was actually showing the created date initially, then the date of subsequent modifications. From what I can see the pubdate per item is meant to be when the item was first "published" not when it was modified. Therefore I have now changed the feed code so that pubdate is set when a new show is added, and then not changed when a show is modified.
  17. As droops mentioned, I tested it a few days ago and it seemed to be working fine. The server did change IP's - do you have any whitelists setup etc which it needs to be re-added to? Also which subscription option are you using - Delayed / Immediate / Daily / Weekly?
  18. Personally im not too sure what to make of it, I mean no “real hacker” will answer any damn question on it, especially when it starts off by saying “Since hacking is an illegal activity, you will see some self-incriminating questions in this online questionnaire”. It looks to me like they are doing a survey on hacker wanabees - you cant help but ROTFL at some of the questions!
  19. The 23rd Chaos Communication Congress (27th-30th December) currently has live streams available at Talk Schedule:
  20. Not quite all - seems to be missing the same ones that are also missing from the ccc's ftp.
  21. We have been having some server issues lately (last month or so) which have likely caused emails not to show up, and just yesterday we made some further changes - I have now fixed yesterdays issue, and the other stuff was fixed maybe 2 weeks or so ago, so it should all be working now. If it does not work for you now, then you need to wait a day or so for the DNS changes to propagate. If it does not work after that, PM me. Also the way it works, is that there is a catchall account for the domain, and all messages go into there to be processed by a cron job. Unfortunately because of this, there is no reliable way to find out who the message was originally sent to. The "To" field is usually good enough but not all the time, and it should not be relied upon. The problem is that we really need to use the catch all, otherwise we would need to create separate mail accounts accounts all the time. I have been looking into Exim recently (the mail server software on our server), and it looks like we may be able to either get it to add in an "Envelope-To" field which will reliably have the original recipients address by changing the config or pipe messages directly to a script to put in the database. I will look into this if / when I get time.
  22. I raised a ticket regarding this issue, and received the following response from Invision:
  23. See this post for a list of new features:
  24. Umap will be mirroring broadcasts at:
  25. For anyone interested the second round of shmoocon tickets will be on sale at the reduced rate from 12 noon.
