==Phrack Inc.== Volume Four, Issue Forty, File 1 of 14 Issue 40 Index ___________________ P H R A C K 4 0 August 1, 1992 ___________________ ~ Baby's Got Back! ~ Welcome to the special 40th Anniversary issue of Phrack Magazine! A month later, we are just barely recovering from the fun at the amazingly successful SummerCon '92. It was the largest turnout ever seen at a SummerCon and the full details can be found in a special report by Knight Lightning and myself with help from Holistic Hacker and Dr. Williams. Brian Oblivion, whose name is regularly seen in the pages of Phrack returns with part two of his file on Cellular Telephony (part one seen in Phrack 38). Also relating to telephones in this issue is "The Fine Art of Telephony" by Crimson Flash. This equally in depth and detailed file focuses of RC/MAC, FACS, and MARCH. Even though the arrogant bastards at Southwestern Bell and BT Tymnet boast about their great security, it appears that they had almost nothing to do with the tracking down and apprehension of the MOD in New York. As a few of us already know, MOD was brought in by hackers. Gee, imagine that. I'm not going to play politics and make judgments about this, instead I'll let you read all about it in Phrack World News, Part 2 and then you can draw your own conclusions. Since we're on the subject of Tymnet, I felt it appropriate <grin> to include 3 articles on the subject by Toucan Jones. A special "kissy, kissy" to Dale Drew (aka The Dictator aka Blind Faith aka Bartman) for his help and assistance in getting us this valuable information. Could a file on TRW be 'round the corner? Hmmmmmm could be. :-) Starting with this issue, Mind Mage will be assisting with Phrack Loopback as our Technical Advisor. He will handle questions regarding technical problems both for publication or for private response. Feel free to send your questions to email@example.com and they will be forwarded and answered. This issue's Loopback has a very special message from Jester Sluggo as he gives notice of his official retirement from the hacking community. Sluggo remembers the past and give advice about the future; I continue my pursuit on the so-called professionals in the anti-virus community and exposes their real agenda; and, Sarlo takes us on a tour of the 1992 Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago and there is lots more. The Racketeer (Rack of The Hellfire Club) takes the reigns of the continuing Network Miscellany column and Rambone returns with the latest on what is happening in the underground world of computer software traders in Pirates Cove. Taran King is back for a special Phrack Pro-Phile with Lex Luthor, the founder of the Legion of Doom and perhaps the most legendary underground hacker ever. "If it's older than a week, then we won't have it online." You are invited to check out a great new BBS called Planet 10. If you have half a brain, you might even get access. Planet 10 is run by Control C and features messages and xfers that are timed to expire after 1 week maximum. Give it a call at (313)683-9722.
