Hello all, nubie alert. I recently was able to setup the war dialer ModemScan on my old Win XP eMachine, and have just been dialing known numbers like my cell phone to see what happens. When I dial out from my PC to my cell, my home phone number appears on my cell, when answered it is empty air with some very very faint beeping in the background. Now, I've never took it into consideration before, but was this always true when war dialing in the past? If you were war dialing from home that was the number that appeared to everyone in the dial list? I guess that's why going to some other location to war dial was the preferable thing to do? Or not calling locally either I suppose? I might be even using the wrong tool for just general old school war dialing, since it seems ModemScan is just that, a scanner for open modems, although it does give a log for BUSY, NO ANSWER, etc. I thought I had seen in some penetration test book that going into the Windows Modem options and putting *67 in the "dial for outside local calls" would hide the caller ID, but I've not had that happen so far in my experiments. Basically my question boils down to is, if you are going to war dial from home, then there's no means of hiding the fact that its your home phone number you are dialing from?
I am coordinating a worldwide volunteer-based exchange scanning project. This ongoing project intends to catalog all telephone numbers in the world, one exchange at a time. Volunteers are needed to manually hand-scan exchanges and input data into publicly-accessible spreadsheets. This is strictly a philanthropic endeavour, and all information acquired will be freely available to the general public, void of any advertisements or hindrances, on a permanent basis. Volunteers are expected to: Call each telephone number within the assigned exchangeAccurately record detailed notes to the provided spreadsheetComplete their exchange survey within one year of assignmentObey all applicable laws For maximum accessibility and compatibility, the Google Docs platform has been chosen for data entry and organization. Because of this, all volunteers are required to have access to a Google Account. To volunteer, please complete the volunteer exchange request form. Volunteers may request any exchange not already assigned. If you would like to volunteer, but are unable to place phone calls yourself, please contact me, as we have technology available that may make it possible to still contribute.
