ok, we decided to skip the forum this month in order to replace it with an interesting article about 'phreaking'... get the next issue for questions and answers here in the 'reader's forum'! everybody already heard about it, but did you know exactly what it is ?? we are talking about 'phreaking', the following article should bring some light into your confusion... (+) phreaking ..... --------------- a lot of dudes know how to cheat the phonecompanies.but the phone- companies are not lazy!they try to make a safe system and if somebody tries to hack out some codes,most of them are able to catch the hacker! southern net has developed a system that allows 'em to catch almost every person using an illegal (hacked) code.in august some dudes got busted in the 201 (n.j.) area for hacking on the southern net (not sure about that) system.they've been visited by the cops and they gotta pay a huge fine... but also in the last few weeks a lot of dudes got billed by using XXXXXXXX codes a lot of dudes are wondering why nobody is hacking rads.that's quite easy:it's possible that most of the rads have ani and that means the risk is too high.i think there ain't a lot of 'safe' systems left. also for most of the europeans life will become harder and harder at&t is almost cracking down,coz too many dudes are using illegal at&t cards! that means:they try to catch some europeans and bill 'em! not a long time ago,stingray/crazy got a phonecall from at&t security and from the ptt (swiss phonecompany) coz of the co-operatoion between at&t and the euro companies,they're able to bust most of the euros!but it'll take 'em a long time to trace your line,but sometimes they're luck and they traced your line within a few minutes! that means:bad luck if at&t doesn't kill you,i am sure the owner of the card will do that, coz your number will be on his bill! and maybe he'll take his shootgun and he'll come to europe to kick your ass.also bad luck for all those americans you're calling! the card owner got their number one his bill,too. for all those europeans who are using some special numbers to call 1-800's only a few words:some of these 1-800 number are able to trace euro peans too pay attention! and last but not something for all these euros who are using credit cards to call out:it can happen that you'll get a special bill 'for using credit cards'.it's almost impossible for 'em to trace you,but they often call up the americans you have called with the card and they try to get your number!they often say things like that:'give the number or he have to pay the whole fine'! and a lot of dudes give out the number! but i my opinion,you should always say 'i don't know the number' and i think they can't do anything with you! maybe next time more facts about that !!!!
