New phreak terminology

19 posts in this topic

At Defcon, Lucky, myself, Natas, and Kurced were sitting round a table chatting about phones...we were trying to decide if there was a phone phreak equivalent of script kiddies.

I blurted out "Box kiddies!"

We all liked it and decided it was an appropriate term :)

As a little aside, I've started using the term "box-kiddies" and

define it thus:

Box-Kiddie: n. (Derogatory) A person who is unable to build electrical

components used for phreaking, and acquires pre-built electronic

components to perform tasks without understanding how they work.

Though ones definitions aren't always the same.

Though I came up with the phrase independently of anyone else, I believe my intended definition was quite different. As far as I'm concerned, a box kiddie is one who doesn't bother to learn anything about telephones; their interest in telephony is limited to building little electronic projects they can use to harass people or commit toll fraud.

Here in Poland we name such person as 'prejker' or 'friker' because they're even so dumb that have problems with pronuncation 'phreaker' word

Ha... I guess that would work. Although I can't really say too much....I'm in the learning what I can phase right now. Somewhat new in phreaking.

Heh. The PLA is what got me into (real) phone phreaking. However I still highly enjoy the PLA humor. I may be growing older physically but my sense of humor remains at whatever level the PLA's humor is (<1 year old) :)

I think that if you can design your own boxes thats pretty leet. I personally prefer the term "codes kids" , referring to punks who only know how to hack extenders, the term codes kids have been around for a while, since the 80's

I have a new phreak term that I'm gonna start using. "Cone zone", in honour of Conan O' Brien. You could be like "Man, this brige is so leet, we're so totally in the Cone Zone right now"

Back in the 90's old BBS days *sigh* we used to call the kids who traded L/P's for hacked accounts or porn bbs's (since most are pay and for adults only and most of these kids were usually under 21/18) , Code Kids....cos they traded "codes" a local board called code red, was nothing but posts of accounts devled by it's users for local porn sites / warez sites....

Vegas has a surprisingly large Asian population, although being at a hotel on the weekend in that city gives you as much of an idea of what the local population is like as the feel that being in a McDonald's gives you for the local cuisine.
