TTY Spoofing, by SubEthan

TTY SPOOFING
by
SubEthan

I know what you are going to say… “THAT WAS ALREADY COVERED BY VAXBUSTER
IN PHRACK-41!” Yeah, I know, but if you would shut your mouth for long
enough and pay attention you might learn something. This file is meant to
be a follow up of VaxBuster’s very informative article on TTY spoofing.
Vax does a great job in explaining how TTY spoofing works, but falls short
in a few areas. This article will NOT repeat anything said in VaxBuster’s
article so if you haven’t read it go do it now or just be confused.

Manual TTY spoofing is made out to look SOOO easy by VaxBuster, but when
I recieved my issue of Phrack-41 I (of course) immediately tried some TTY
spoofing of my own. Well needless to say I figured it out, but it wasn’t
quite as simple as cating the TTYs and waiting. One of the most
immediate problems is finding out what TTY’s are used for what purposes.
Many machines, especially larger machines, can have HUNDREDS of TTYs.
Some are obviously for devices such as printers and modems, while others
are set aside for “scum” student users, and still others might be for
“special” users. My advise is to take a tour of your /dev direcotry. Get
to know it, because even beyond TTY spoofing there are many things that
can be done in the /dev directory. When you look at all the TTYs in the
/dev directory look for ones whose owner isn’t “root” and don’t just check
it once, check it at different times of the day and keep a log of
patterns, such as where maybe the modem users are and where the CIS lab
terminal TTYs are. Not all computers have different TTYs for different
groups of users, but if you keep your eyes open you may notice things that
will be to your advantage later.

Now once you figure out what TTYs the bulk of users you might want to
spoof are on, then you can start cating terminals and wham, bam, thank you
ma’m you magically get accounts, right? Wrong.

Even after you know the best TTY areas for spoofing, there are still
some problems. One of the biggest problems I had when spoofing was this:
once I catted an unused TTY, that TTY was skipped over by the login
process. If I catted a whole area of TTYs that whole area of TTY was
skipped over and it looks pretty obvious something is up when you look at
a “who” and there is a gap of TTYs about 30 long that don’t have users.
The obvious solution to this problem is, of course to cat ALL the TTYs.
I have a slight problem with that though. There are just TOO many TTYs to
spoof. The normal use TTYs on my machine go from ttyx1 to ttyx255.
That’s right 255 TTYs! And don’t tell me cats don’t show up in a ps -aux
because they do. It would look pretty suspicous if your name were on the
process list with 255 cats running.

Needless to say I needed to find out more about how the TTYs worked. I
found that every once in while when I did cat a large area of TTYs I could
snag a user, but then I would just end up killing all the other process
after five minutes because I noticed that the TTYs I still had catted
started to get skipped. After a while of playing I figured out that the
users I would snag were through PURE LUCK. While catted TTYs are skipped
over, what happens is you can actually cat someones terminal as they are
logging in! This is what happens most of the time. I came up with a
process to better my chances of “snagging” some poor schmuck as he is
logging in.

Now as most people know, (or maybe not so I’m telling you anyway) TTYs
are distributed numerically. ttyx1 (or whatever your first tty?? happens
to be) is given out before ttyx2 and so on down the line. Now if ttyx1
through ttyx10 are used and the person using ttyx2 logs off, then ttyx2 is
the next tty to be given out to the next user who logs in. This I believe
generally holds true on most machines (although I am not positive). Now
in order to optimize getting ttys here is what you can do.

First you log in (to whichever hacked account you prefer, although with
this method I genereally don’t fear using my own) during busy hours and find
which tty you are on by doing a ps. Now most of the time, especially
during VERY busy hours you will tend to slip into the middle of the used
ttys. This is because someone has dropped out of the middle and you have
gotten that tty. Now what you want to do is try to identify a LOW numbered
unused tty. You COULD keep doing whos to see who drops off of a low
numbered tty, but here is what I do to maximize efficiency. Just Telnet to
your own machine and log in again. This guarantees that you will find out the
lowest number open tty on your machine, plus since you are logged in no
one else will be able to take. This TTY is the one you will spoof.
It is very important that the tty number be as low as possible. You will
see why later.

Now say you originally logged on to ttyx55 and then when you Telneted to
your own machine you managed to get ttyx7. What you want to do now is
logout off of ttyx7 putting you back to ttyx55. Now right away cat that
sucker!

cat < /dev/ttyx7 & Alright. Now if you don't get a "permission denied" error you got it. If you do get "permission denied" try the whole process again. Once you get a low tty cated you are in good shape. Now unless, as I said before, someone is logging in at the same time as you cat the terminal then nothing will happen. The tty you catted will be skipped over. Now you want to typ% the cgmlAndq fg2 the "<[email protected]!<sÄâsãL'Á�çÀ���ÄçÀÀ��[email protected]�'ÀÁÁ xxDÀ'à�[email protected] ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������l have to go through the proccess again and heaven forbid you should actually have to work for anything.

How to Hack into CIS

*How to Hack into CIS*

3 = Amex
4 = Visa
5 = Mastercharge

For How to Make CC#’s

For a VISA:
Make the First 4#’s 4019 or 4128 and the last number 0012
like:

4019 0190 1450 0012
4128 0190 1450 0012
4128 4010 1450 0012

Use a lot of zeros mixed with other numbers. These have
already been used but us them for examples on how to
“Create” your own!, GOOD LUCK!

CI$ is a good service to try this on. you dial your
local telenet number, then if your unfamiliar with
Telenet, you hit return twice when you get carrier,
then at the “terminal:” prompt press return. then you
get a “@” prompt, here you type either “C 202 201” or
“C 202 202” with no mistakes. Then after you get
connected, at the “ID Number” (Or what ever) you type
177000,5000, the password is and will always be
PC*Magnet then the a agreement number is and always
will be Z10D8810 then just make up the your info.
ie. Mailing address, Phone number, etc. the last thing
they ask is for your CC# this is where you get to see
if your Card Number works or not, by using the way I
described, It does work, so far We’ve gotten 3 free
accounts and one is active now. The account will
usually remain active for a week or two.

Cable Descrambling

If you have cable TV but are not fortunate enough to have the Premium services,
here is a simple way to steal Cinemax, The Movie Channel, Showtime, the
Disney Channel, and any other service that appears as a bussing fuzzy picture
(that you can ALMOST get clearly by fine tuning). This method also works on
channels that appear as a lined flashing screen that produce a beeping sound.
These channels are not scrambled, but instead a garbage transmission is sent
at the same frequency. Therefore, in order to receive the movie servcices
clearly, you must filter out the garbage.

Here is a simple way to do this:

1) Examine the back of your TV set. Find the VHF antenna terminals (these are
the antenna terminals that the cable service is hooked up to). Get a piece of
antenna wire (about 3 feet long). Strip one end of the wire and and attach it
to the VHF terminals along with the cable. Tune in to one of the movie services
and adjust the fine tuner until you get the cleanest picture. Cut off about 1/4
inch of the antenna wire and adjust the fine tuner. Continue to do this until
you get a nearly perfect picture (you should not have to cut off more than 6
inches of the antenna wire). Get a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it around
the antenna wire slide it up and down until you have a perfect picture. This is
a simple yet effective way to get movies for free.

Pirating Cable Premium Channels
(Written By Exodus)

This is for all of you that have cable but don’t have those
premium channels like HBO, Cinemax, and Playboy because your
parents are too cheap to get them or they think that you’ll
become a stupid moron if you get them. Well, this will tell you
how you can get all those premium channels as a perfect, clear
picture at absolutely no charge.

First of all, you have to have one of those real old cable
boxes that don’t have a remote control but the ones that have the
little buttons that you have to push (I don’t know about the
other kind, but you can go ahead and try.)

What you do is open up your cable box with a small screw
driver or a thin knife. Inside you’ll see some copper thingies (I
forgot what they’re called) but anyways, they’re thin and long.
Each one of these represents a channel. You’ll also see these
little triangular things, which usually touch one of the copper
things. Well, if you haven’t figured out already, when the copper
things are being touched by the triangular things, this means
that you’re getting that channel on the channel number that the
triangular thing (from now on I’ll call the triangular things
“triangles” and the copper things “coppers”) represents.

The thing that you have to do is find all the coppers that
aren’t being touched by any triangles. These are the premium
channels! Now, find a triangle that isn’t touching a copper and
turn it so it touches the copper. That’s all!! Now you have your
premium channels, at no charge. Just make sure that you set them
back if you ever turn your cable box in so that the cable company
doesn’t find out what you’ve been doing.

May all your viewings be pleasant ones!

1 CAN – DUPONT IMR-4227 GUNPOWDER. (OR
ANY SIMILAR FACIMILLE).

5 MODEL ROCKET IGNITERS

10 FT – 12 GUAGE WIRE.

ELECTRICAL TAPE
——-

REMEMBER… EXERCISE -EXTREME- CARE
WHEN HANDLING THESE MATERIALS!!!
MAKE SURE NO ELECTRIC CURRENT OR
HEAT SOURCES ARQrI9 STAY IN A DARK
COOL DRY ROOM, FOR MOST SAFETY.

FIRST, POP THE CAP OF THE POWDER.
TAPE THE WIRES OF EACH SIDE OF THE
IGNITERS TOGETHER. THAT IS – TAPE ALL
THE LEFT-HAND WIRES TOGETHER AND ALL
THE RIGHT-HAND WIRES TOGETHER. MAKE
SURE THE IGNITER HEADS ARE NOT
COVERED AND THAT THERE IS ADEQUATE ROOM
FOR TAPEING THE WIRES ON THE LEADS.

CUT THE 12 GUAGE WIRE IN HALF AND
STRIP THE ENDS. CONNECT THE END OF ONE
WIRE TO ONE OF THE SETS OF LEADS ON
THE IGNITERS. CONNECT THE OTHER WIRE
TO THE OTHER SIDE. FEED THE IGNITERS
INTO THE CAN. MAKE SURE THEY REST ABOUT
3 MM OVER THE POWDER. NOW; CLOSE THE
TOP AS BEST AS POSSIBLE AND TAPE IF
NECESSARY. YOUR BOMB IS NOW READY!

PLACE THE BOMB ANYWHERE ON THE CAR
(OR ANYWHERE ELSE WHERE A 12-VOLT
POWER SUPPLY IS AVAILABE) THAT IS CLOSE
ENOUGH TO THE ENGINE. THERE ARE TWO
POSSIBLE WAYS TO WIRE THE BOMB.
EITHER WIRE IT TO THE IGNITION – MORE
DEPENDABLE, OR PLACE ONE WIRE IN THE
SPARK PLUG CAPS AND THE OTHER ON THE
FRAME OF THE CAR, OR ANY OTHER
GROUNDED PLACE ON THE CAR. THE LATTER
MAY NOT WORK WELL SINCE THE IGNITERS
ARE NOT MADE TO HANDLE SUCH VOLTAGE.
IT SHOULD WORK ANYWAY. USE THIS METHOD
IF YOU CANT FIND SOME IGNITION WIRES.
IF YOU CAN GET IN THE CAR, CONNECT IT
TO A CAR APPLIANCE THAT IS ONLY
“HOT” WHEN THE CAR IS ON.

                           WELCOME TO THE COMPLETE HANDBOOK OF HACKING CIS!

                          1.  Introduction.
Greetings all.  Before I begin, I would like to say a few words about my 
experience to write such a manual.
                              I recently leafed through several manuals of 
how to hack Compuserve.  As a hacker myself, and an abuser, I found the 
manuals no help at all to a veteran.  So I thought to myself:  Since ive 
been hacking Compuserve for 2 years now, why don't I write a complete novel 
for novices and veterans alike?  I decided to write this to completly cover 
every aspect of hacking compuserve.
                               It is a shame how just about everyone calls 
themselves a hacker.  I've seen some people completly botch up Compuserve 
hacking.  True, it is a tough service to hack, but is stupid.  CIS is so stup
id they put ziffnet on their service.  What is ziffnet?  Well, basically its a hackers haven.  This gives you compuserve accounts that will last 11 
ys!  Sign up 1 account every other day and use fake credit cards [if you do
nt know how to get them, call my bbs and ill tell you] and fake info for si-
gnup.  All you need is the latest sign up number.  If you are an advanced
 hacker, you should already know where to get it.  I will provide you with
 the current gateway to ziffnet later in the book. 
                                2. Beginning hacking tips

                                * You should have at least 1 month 
experience with Compuserve legally on a regular account.  This handbook will 
assume that you have a Compuserve account you have owned for at least 1 month.
                                 * Dont be a daredevil:  If you are new to 
hacking, do not attempt stunts like going to the cb forum and calling the 
sysop an asshole, or ordering 5 thousand dollars worth of merchandise from 
the electronic mall, or anything that could give you away.  If you do 
dangerous things, CIS may attempt to trace the call and get you in deep shit.
                                  * CIS is stupid.  Use it to your advantage.
                                  * Use the account in electronic mail, 
forums, and CB Simulator [see cb simulator chapter].  Do NOT use the mall.  
Anything else like stock quotes or phonefile is ok.
                                 3. Getting your first hack account
Now that you have been used to compuserve and know a little of hacking, I 
will tell you how to get your first hack account.  A word of caution on the 
cb simulator before i continue.. if you are going to use the cb, and have a 
regular account, do NOT use the same handle and do NOT go on your typical 
channel.  Thats asking for it.
                                 There is a surefire way to get free 
accounts.  You need to have about half an hour of free time to do this.  
Simply call the Compuserve Idiot Service customer service line at the number 
1-800-848-8990.  Make sure you get to speak with a representative.  DO NOT 
speak to the same one twice.  Now, choose one of these bullshit stories to 
tell the rep.
                               a. I got a modem for my birthday/conformation
etc, and I by mistake threw the CIS start up booklet away.  Can you give me 
a new sign up?
                               b. My serial number wont work on my account 
[give them fake sign up info like 177000,70 star-heart agreeement 177s948a 
serial # 1779027]
                                  The idiot at the other end will give you 
your first hacked account.  Keep in mind this account is real and will last 
11 days with a fake credit card number.
                                  There are other ways to get hacked 
accounts, which I will discuss with you later on.
                                  4. What to do on the account
You have a variety of things you may do on your new account.  Feel free to 
download software for 24 hours straight in a forum, leave horribly 
disgusting messages, send email to people you dont know, etc.  Always give 
fake information when asked.  And if you feel you are going to get caught, 
drop carrier and dont use the account again.  There are numerous ways to get 
an account on CIS, dont worry if you lose one.
                                   5.  Hacking someone elses account
This is not as easy as some people say it is.  There are some tricks to get 
peoples passwords, which I will tell you later on.  The general password 
order is WORD SYMBOL WORD, but some use WORD WORD SYMBOL like exhaleheart.  
The trick is not to try out random numbers, but trick them into giving you 
their password.
                                    There are some smart people on CIS who 
will never fall for these tricks, but you can count on one moron out of 10.  
To do these tricks you need a formal typing style to look official, 
[capitalize all letters, always add ' and , when needed, and capitalize 
Compuserve, Service, and anything else belonging to cis like CB Simulator] 
and a hacked account [perhaps the one you got from calling the dumb-as-shit 
customer reps].  Go onto the CB Simulator, invite people one at a time at 
random, or invite people from channel 2 without a [HELPER] in their handle.  
One good way is to monitor the channel, the people making stupid mistakes 
are new to compuserve, simply invite them and then try out these tricks.
                                   a. Tell them you are from Compuserve 
Security, and you need their password to check out their account for 
possible problems.  Make up bogus trash problems like their Electronic Mail 
box is not functioning right, they are getting overcharged, etc.  [NOTE:  I 
know they tell you NEVER give out your password to anyone when you first 
sign up.  Do you really believe anyone actually reads that shit? -:-)]
                                    b. Tell them you are conducting a 
research assignment, and need their password for this assignment.  If they 
ask, say you have CIS' permission and that you are collecting everyones 
password for a survey of popular passwords.  They'll believe it!
                                    Once you have the persons password, 
leave and change it immediately.  Then reek havoc on it.
                                    6. CB Simulator
This is advertised as a "warm, happy place where wonderful people meet and 
make friends".  Its 100% bullshit.  Half the people there are mentally ill, 
losers, retards, neurotics, men pretending to be girls, etc.  Another 
affliction here is stupidity.  This is where you can try out the tricks in 
chapter 5 above.  Here is where you will get other peoples passwords.  Watch 
the handles also.  A while ago 2 people from Germany logged on using their 
passwords as their handles!  [I told you they are stupid]
                                     7.  Electronic Terrorism
This is as far as I will go in this manual for hacking information for 
novices.  The rest of the book is for advanced hackers.  This is a novice 
electronic terrorism section which will explain how to terrorize the people 
you don't like on Compuserve.  
                                      The most important thing you can get 
on Compuserve, besides a user id, is a name.  Using that name, and where 
they are from [check the NODE, and write down the info given to you by cis] 
type /go phonefile and use the information to possibly obtain addresses and 
phone numbers for these people.  Using these, we can make an effective 
electronic mail message, like "Is this where you live [name]?  [give 
address] Well, im going to go fuck you up tomorrow.  See you later asshole"
                                      Using electronic mail, we can send the 
same message to the same people as many times as you wish.  On your hacked 
account, /go mail and select address book.  Select distribution list, and 
make one or two entitled whatever you want.  When it says member, put a 
non-swear in for the name each time, and same id for the address.  Do it 20 
times.  [NOTE:  Dont enter fuckface or asshole for member.  The system wont 
allow you to use that, use something like prick or cocksucker].  To 
accomplish this, make the threatening mail message, when it says Send to: 
enter the name of your distribution list.  That person recieved 20 messages, 
all the same. Repeat 5 more times and his/her box is jammed with 100 
messages!  [if you do it enough you will destroy his/her compuserve mailbox]
                                    That wraps up this section of the 
handbook for novices.  Using the tricks you now know, practice for a few 
months then read the next section.  Although I know that you will read it 
now anyway, I am saying this for your own sake.  If you do the following 
tricks with little experience you may get caught, and we don't want that 
right?

                                    8.  Second Introduction
This section of the Perfect Handbook to Hacking Compuserve is for anyone 
with a lot of experience with compuserve hacking.  I will provide you first 
with a list of useful information, and then we will discuss new ways to geta 
ccounts, what to do, and people to hurt.
                                    8.1 Useful Info List
73317,1777-User id of Nicholas Seraphin.  He is a 20 year old fat fuck and a 
snitch.  He deserves all the punishment he can get, like sending him 100 
mail messages.  Avoid him with a Ziffnet account or he will report you.
70006,522-User id of CB Manager *LooLoo*.  Very dangerous, avoid at all costs.
76702,643-User id of AX, the cb forum sysop and chief helper.  He has almost 
the same powers as LooLoo.
1-614-764-2302-LooLoos phone number [Leave her alone over cb, but show no 
mercy calling her up and belching, farting, anything annoying.  Shes not 
dangerous over the phone -:-)]
/go mail-gets you to CIS mail
/go cb-1-sends you to general cb band
/go phonefile-gets you to phone+address listing of members
/go directory-gets you user id numbers and names
                                     9. Ziffnet
CIS is stupid.  CIS is so stupid they put ziffnet on their service.  What is 
ziffnet?  Well, basically its a hackers haven.  This gives you compuserve 
accounts that will last 11 days!  Sign up 1 account every other day and use 
fake credit cards [if you dont know how to get them, call my bbs and ill 
tell you] and fake info for signup.  All you need is the latest sign up 
number.  If you are an advanced hacker, you should already know where to get 
it.  I will provide you with the current gateway to ziffnet and instructions 
on using accounts [current as of May 7,1993]
                                     User ID: any 177000 number
                                     Password: usually pcSYMBOLWORD
                                     Agreement: z11dand4numbers
To work on compuserve, sign it up, use fake info, and leave it alone for 24 
hours.  After that period you should be able to access compuserve.  If you 
can, immediately /go member, and choose cancel membership.  Press enter when 
it prompts for name, and choose 13 as reason for cancelling membership.  
Next day it should be cancelled, if it is, choose yes to reinstate it, enter 
the same fake credit card you entered before with same date, and itll let 
you on.  This will allow you to access cb simulator without getting your 
second password [if you used fake info, which you should, you wont be 
getting it anyway -:-)].  Give this new account to your friends also to hack 
and use.  Run up HUGE bills, stay in forums and download, etc.  Have fun!
                                     10. How to use ziffnets
You can use these accounts the same as regular sign up accounts from CIS, 
and terrorize people with them.  Like, remember our old friend Nick 
Seraphin?  Simply go mail and send him a bunch of messages saying fuck you.  
Terrorizing is fun and simple with these accounts, and you don't get caught 
if you play it safe.  CB Simulator is the place to go also, Nicks handle is 
*Eagle*, if you see him, tell him to go fuck himself.  Hes more of a snitch 
then a girl in kindergarten.  After 11 days, the account will die a natural 
death, and if you followed my advice, you should have more accounts to use.
                                     11. Advanced Terrorizing
You want to really get some people mad?  After hacking the account, go to a 
CIS forum and leave messages, saying the person has something free that 
relates to the forum name, and can be reached via email at his user id.  An 
example is going to the ham radio forum and leaving a message saying your 
friend has a radio show and would like to have an interview with some 
members of the forum live, and if interested please send mail to [enter his 
user id] and please send it email, dont leave it in the forum.  Do the same 
format in about 25 other forums, and the bastard will check his mailbox the 
next day to find 1,000 messages [to really piss him/her off, send 200 
messages using the techiniques i told you about in chapter 7.  If the 
bastard is nice, like Nick Seraphin, he/she will be replying to every 
message for the rest of the day! -:-)].  Blow the mailbox whenever you get a 
chance, once you have the persons mail box down a lot of vital information 
may be lost, like user ids in address book, PER area files, and real 
messages from friends.  It is important to some people, so just blow out the 
mailbox of an enemy whenever possible.  It really pisses him/off major.
                                    12. Snitches
No matter how good a hacker you are, you are likely to make mistakes.  Some 
mistakes are little, such as using a handle u used to use before on a 
regular account, then quickly changing it, but some mistakes can lead to 
problems.  There are several snitches on the Compuserve Idiot Service, and I 
will make you aware of who they are and what their ID is.  Feel free to use 
the techniques i've discussed in chapters 7 and 11.  [NOTE:  This applies to 
forums and cb simulator only]
                                    a. Nick Seraphin- You already know about 
him, but he has three accounts: 73317,1777, 70372,327, and 73540,555.
                                    b. Elizabeth Halat.  The user-ID for her 
is not known, however the handle she uses on cb is Rhiannon.  Be careful if 
you see that handle, or you may end up in deep shit with CIS.
                                    c. Any 7000 account.  Whether it is 
70006 or 70004, it is a CIS employee account.  They have the power to knock 
you off cis and suspend you, or possibly end your hacking career for good.  
Be wary of each account.  Ziffnets are easy to detect, since they all start 
with 71414, and every employee knows this.  However, sometimes on cb 
simulator general band on channel 17 their kids come on.  Nows your chance 
to maybe get the password trying out techniques used in chapter 5! -:-)
                                    d. Any [HELPER].  They know ziffnet and 
if you use your usual typing style, handle, and channel, then Im sorry, but 
you deserve to be caught.
                                    13. When you are caught
There is one effective technique to use when you are caught, IF you are 
caught.  Remember, if you used fake information, the morons cannot prove 
anything!  Simply deny the fuck out of whatever they say.  There are at 
least 1 million people in each state in the U.S, how would they be able to 
prove it's you?  Simple but effective.
                                    Another simple technique is to claim 
that someone is impersonating you.  Say the person has hacked your regular 
Compuserve account.  To prove it, occasionally call from wherever this 
person is from [example: texas, new york, oregon] using the access numbers 
that can be found in CIS.  If you wish to use one of the current numbers, 
simply /go help and choose option 9.  Write down the number and use it as a 
node.  This may be the thing that saves your ass if you are caught.  A note 
about this:  Keep the LD calls short.  You don't want a big bill, but you do 
want proof that "somebody else" is using your account.
                                    14. General Things to Keep in Mind
* CIS is not known for being smart.  However, they are not completly 
stupid.  They will catch you if you make big mistakes.
* The more experience on your regular account, the better.  You should 
always learn and gather information about what youa re hacking for maximum 
effeciency.
* Stay away from helpers, 7000 accounts, and anyone who seems overly 
interested in knowing your personal information.  If needed, drop carrier, 
and relog on half an hour later.
* Download as much as you want from the forums.  This is your chance to get 
the latest files for free.  NEVER upload, for your own safety.
* Use the techniques in chapters 7 and 11 on anybody who gives you a hard 
time over the cb simulator.
* Ziffnet accounts last 11 days when made.  If you hack someones account 
remember you are on borrowed time [and money] so do what you have to in the 
first 5 days and then have fun the remaining time.
* Never get any CIS employee extremly upset at you.  The best solution is to 
simply piss off the forum managers with dumb messages or obscene messages 
directed to other users.
* When in doubt of what to do, call my BBS [shameful plug -:-)]
                                  That about wraps it up for the Handbook of 
Hacking Compuserve.  In the future expect more updates and information as 
CIS changes to attempt to keep us hackers out.  They'll never be able to 
obviously.  A few final words:  Everything I have said here works.  The 
information given is current and accurate, and if followed I see no reason 
you cannot continue hackin successfully.  Watch yourself, and you can have a 
lot of fun driving the assholes over in CIS crazy.
                                  Happy Hacking!!

Hacking the Compuserve Information Service

                   Hacking the Compuserve Infomation Service

    Compuserve is a multiuser networked Pay by Hour service. But this can
    be beat. At current rates, CIS (Compuserve) charges $6.50 for 300 baud
    and $12.75 for 1200/2400 baud, 9600 can only be accessed by Hardwired
    clients. Thus you see the need for this file. At the time this was
    written, all information in this file was correct. Enough of this, on
    to the file.

    Logging on to Compuserve
    ------------------------
    In order to logon to CIS you need one of the following.
     1) A Telenet, Tymnet, Or CIS Port
     2) A Credit Card
     3) Above the IQ of a houseplant
    That is all you need, I know for some of you the 3rd one is tough, but
    try. Ok, you have all this, call your local port, logon to CIS, then
    you should get a [User ID:] Prompt, type [177000,5000], this is the Ziff
    PCMagnet User Id. Now, if you entered it correctly, then you should get
    the [Password:] Prompt, at This type [Pc*Magnet]. You will next be given
    a Welcome Message, then, you will get yet another Prompt. It should ask
    you for your Agreement Number, type [Z10D8810]. That is the end of the
    prompts. Here's where the IQ of above a houseplant comes into play.
    You now have to think. It will ask you various questions, ranging from
    your country to your Social Security number. Answer them however you
    want, but I wouldn't use your real info. If you want the second password
    (Needed to access some things), you will have to give an address where
    you can drop by and pick it up. Some ideas are sending to your neighbors,
    but use your last name, it will end up at your house. This is safe, I
    have used it. Or you can rent a Post Office box for about 6 months.
    Once you have done all this, and answer the questions, and read the
    propoganda, you will see [Entering PCMagnet]. You are done.

    So what do I do Now?
    --------------------
    Ok, if you get this far, you have the IQ of above your fern. You can
    go one of two places, CIS or PCMagnet (Where you are now). You can
    stay in PCMagnet, but there isn't much there. So, I would type [Go Cis]
    This will bring you to Compuserve. Once on CIS, you can do many thing,
    ranging from downloading files, to real time chat on forums to online
    games. Next, I will list some interesting places to go.

    Where do I go?
    --------------
    There are alot on interesting places to go on Compuserve. There are
    some places that you can't access without a second password, so that
    must be attained to get on CB. But you can goto the forums, the
    games, and alot of other things. I will list some places that I like
    to go.
     [Go Rocknet] will bring you to a rather nice forum that is populated
                  by some very nice people. It has confrences at 7am till
                  9am (Breakfast Club), at 12pm till 1pm (Lunch Bunch),
                  and from around 10pm till 1am. I can be found in this
                  forum alot.
     [Go Hsx100]  will bring you to the Human Sexuality Forum, but it's
                  not what you think, they are very interesting people
                  that hang around here. The Confrence's there are from
                  around 10pm till about 4am. They last along time.
    These are just my favorites, but if you type [Go Forums], it will
    give you a list of forums that you can Hang around on. There are
    some things to look out for on CIS.

    Some sights you will see
    ------------------------
    There are some things to look out for on CIS. You must be careful
    when you see one of these things. They are on the look out for US.
    If you see a [70000,xxxx] id, that is a Security Officer, they will
    deleate you if you are not careful. If you see a [70006,xxxx] that
    is a Wizard, he can also deleate you. They some times do not deleate
    you they just /gag you, that means you can't be seen, you are not in
    the userlist. This only applys to Confrence and CB. *LooLoo* is a
    person to be careful not to see, she is a mother fucker. She is a
    powerful person, she can /gag you on any forum, but SHE CAN NOT
    deleate you, only a security account can. Her user id is [70006,522]
    so if you see that ID, be careful. I have talked to her voice on
    several occassions, she is fun to call and bother about CIS, if you
    want her number, it is [614/764-2302] Her real name is Patricia
    Phelps. There is also another not so nice person on Compuserve , he
    is Dan Piskur, he is the Head of Security. He uses the Handles,
    [Dan'l or Ghost] he CAN deleate you on sight.

    Misc Info.
    ----------
    Here's come info on Project Numbers. (User Id's)
    70000,xxxx = CIS Security     70003,xxxx = CIS Employe
    70004,xxxx = CIS Employe      70005,xxxx = Radio Shack Demo
    70006,xxxx = Wizard           70007,xxxx = Complementary Account
    76701,xxxx = Forum Sysop      76703,xxxx = Forum Sysop
    76704,xxxx = Forum Sysop      72251,xxxx = Ziff Account (You)
    72261,xxxx = Ziff Account     72271,xxxx = Ziff Account
    72301,xxxx = Ziff Account
    Some things, a Wizard is a very powerful person, they have access
    to /gag you. A Ziff account is an account created by this method.

Free Compuserve Access

FREE COMPUSERVE ACCESS
---- ---------- ------

     There are several ways you can go about getting CIS passwords. The
ones with unlimited access are quite a bit harder but, first of all, the
simplest to get are Radio Shack demo accounts. You can't do much but 
they are still kinda fun. Good for doing research.

     Use a one of the following scams or a variation to obtain Radio Shack
demo accounts.

#1

     Call one of your local Radio Shack stores and say, 'hi, this is 
_______ , i'm your compuserve sales rep., We are doing a update on our
files, on all stores in the ______ area.  Then, ask them a bunch of
questions, like the manager's name, store location, store #, etc...  If
they tell ya this without any hesitation, then you've probably got
yourself a demo account. After they tell ya all that, tell them that you 
will need their present user id that they are using to do demonstrations
of compuserve.  Then, the kicker, ask them the password. If they tell ya, then 
thank them, and tell them if they have any questions to call you at
xxx-xxxx. Where xxx-xxxx is a number that is always busy.  That should
keep them from getting too suspicious.

#2

     I use this one the most, because I started out with the previous 
method, and switched to this one because of all of the info. I had
gathered about the stores in my area.
     Find out a manager's name of a particular store in your area, then
call another store in the same area! Be friendly, and say, "hello, this is
the manager of ______ and we can't seem to get our compuserve demo
password to work and we have a customer here who would like to see a demo
of the service. Would you mind giving us yours until we call our D.M. and
find out what ours was changed to? As long as the two managers don't know
each other, you will have a demo account.  By the way, D.M. is an
abbreviation that they use for district manager.

     Well, enough of this demo account Bullshit, once you have a demo 
account, log on to CIS.  Go to the national user listing.  Look at the
users in your area.  Write them down and then call information and get
their phone numbers.

     Call them up and tell them you are ____ from CIS.  Continue to tell 
them that because of a security breach, you are going to have to change
their password.  Tell them that in order to do so, you will need their
user id and old password.  Take it down, pretend you are typing on a
terminal or something then tell them that it will be changed to _______
make up an official sounding password. Now thank them and again, give them
a busy number to call if they have questions...I find that compuserve's
800 number works good. (It's always busy anyway.)

    The third and final way I will discuss involves something more than
talking on the phone.  Go into your Radio Shack, pull a CIS package off of
the wall. Rip open the pack, read and memorize the password. Walk out. I 
have been busted for shoplifting but never shopreading. When the initial
hour runs out,use a credit card to gain a additional 2hrs. Of service.

Have Fun!

P.S. If all else fails, there is always 77770,101 free-demo or free:demo
but that id is a total waste of time. Logon with it and see what I mean.

password to work and we have a customer here who would like to see a demo
of the service. Would you mind giving us yours until we call our D.M. and
find out what ours was changed to? As long as the two managers don't know
each other, you will have a demo account.  By the way, D.M. is an
abbreviation that they use for district manager.

     Well, enough of this demo account Bullshit, once you have a demo
account, log on to CIS.  Go to the national user listing.  Look at the
users in your area.  Write them down and then call information and get
their phone numbers.

     Call them up and tell them you are ______ from CIS.  Continue to tell
them that because of a security breach, you are going to have to change
their password.  Tell them that in order to do so, you will need their
user ID and old password.  Take it down, pretend you are typing on a
terminal or something then tell them that it will be changed to ______
make up an official sounding password. Now thank them and again, give them
a busy number to call if they have questions...I find that CompuServe's
800 number works good. (It's always busy anyway.)

    The third and final way I will discuss involves something more than
talking on the phone.  Go into your Radio Shack, pull a CIS package off of
the wall. Rip open the pack, read and memorize the password. Walk out. I
have been busted for shoplifting but never shopreading. When the initial
hour runs out, use a credit card to gain additional hrs. of service.

Have Fun!

P.S. If all else fails, there is always ID: 77770,101 Password: FREE-DEMO
but that ID is a total waste of time.  Logon with it and see what I mean.

Free Compuserve Access

FREE COMPUSERVE ACCESS
---- ---------- ------

     There are several ways you can go about getting CIS passwords. The
ones with unlimited access are quite a bit harder but, first of all, the
simplest to get are Radio Shack demo accounts. You can't do much but they
are still kinda fun.  Good for doing research.

     Use one of the following scams or a variation to obtain Radio Shack
demo accounts.

 #1

     Call one of your local Radio Shack stores and say, 'Hi, this is
______, I'm your CompuServe sales rep.  We are doing an update on our
files, on all stores in the ______ area.'  Then, ask them a bunch of
questions, like the manager's name, store location, store #, etc...  If
they tell ya this without any hesitation, then you've probably got
yourself a demo account. After they tell ya all that, tell them that you
will need their present user ID that they are using to do demonstrations
of CompuServe.  Then, the kicker, ask them the password. If they tell ya,
then thank them, and tell them if they have any questions to call you at
xxx-xxxx. Where xxx-xxxx is a number that is always busy.  That should
keep them from getting too suspicious.

 #2

     I use this one the most, because I started out with the previous
method, and switched to this one because of all the info I had gathered
about the stores in my area.
     Find out a manager's name of a particular store in your area, then
call another store in the same area! Be friendly, and say, "hello, this is
the manager of ______ and we can't seem to get our CompuServe demo
password to work and we have a customer here who would like to see a demo
of the service. Would you mind giving us yours until we call our D.M. and
find out what ours was changed to? As long as the two managers don't know
each other, you will have a demo account.  By the way, D.M. is an
