Julla O. Kouppinen (Finland) A long distance thanks very much!

(This is finally getting international.... Where's Hong Kong??)

Interesting, some of the donors who feel thanks enough to reach into their 
pockets and join the drive.  Total donations as of 11/14/93 are $436.50. Got 
a ways to go folks to purchase the (?A4000T?). There is pretty reliable info
that FFish does in fact already own an A4000 (shoot!).  Suggestions???  
Please talk this up with all concerned (Amiga users) and pass the word on to 
your Users Groups. If you haven't joined the effort, slip that hand into the 
pocket and pull out some bucks, put it into any envelope and send it in.  
Let's show what the Amiga community is all about. Check over some of the
programs you have benefitted/are benefitting from.  Register them and/or 
pitch in for FishFund. 

* Reminder to everyone PLEASE!!!  Pass the word at any Users Group meetings y
ou attend.  This should be a group effort on behalf of all the Amiga users
throughout the world. Please donate whatever you can afford - or even better,
what you honestly think FFish's work has been worth to you through the years. 
You think speed kills?  Try apathy!  Let's make this thing happen. Thanks. 
BTW, there have been some very nice comments to/about FFish included in the
envelopes with donations.  As I have been saving these, think I will include 
them along with the donation "pot"/A4000T when the time comes.

*** Subj: HACKER ON THE LOOSE!!!!

I would like to warn all of you of a BAD hacker (there are good ones and I'm
proof of that).  He decided to break into my system (probably using a word
cypher though he won't admit to it).

I got luck and caught him while he was online and here is the excerpt of the
log:


ME>so who guessed my password :)

HIM>hhehe, just your friendly neighbor hacker, oh, and a real hacker doesn't
GUESS passwords

ME>:) So either someone who found it somewhere like where though :)

HIM>oh, a good hacker  doesn't reveal his secrets either, and I hate you dam
amercian sysops, you guys stay home to much, 

ME>?

HIM>ah nothing

ME>So Mr. cracker (hackers are useful :) who are you anyway, not that I'm
upset since I knew that the password would get broken sooner or later... 
Main reason there is nothing but BBS stuff on this machine :)

ME>well, please to term me a cracker, I am not, I go by the name, "The Moz", I
assume you will be hearing a lot about me in the coming days, as I have
figured out a method to infiltrate ANY amiga based BBS, but seeing how nice I
am I haven't destroyed anyting. I have been doing this for about a half year
and just now when an american sysop cauht me a couple of days ago I decided to
go to town, not wrrying my little precious face about when the sysops might be
up

ED: Anyone who breaks into a system that is protected from unlawful entry is a
cracker.  IE Safe CRACKER.

ME>:)  No, wont bother me anyway...  If it is a hole in DLG I can believe it. 
not bothered to see if there is one.  Yea I cought ya two ways... one I don't
log in remote anymore because I don't have that need (I'm here enough to use
the local terminal) and second it is the holidays so I was wondering why it
seemed someone was calling back a few times (like a bad LD connection).

HIM> it is holiday?

ME>Turkey day here in US.  I have paid vacation from Yesterday, today and then
the weekend (4days).

HIM> oh btw it is not a hole as you put it in DLG, this method I have come to
use on DLG E! CNET and my personal favorite Xenolink

ME> OK.  So you have a word cypher or something then?

HIM> oooooh, no no, much simpler he he, but I digress

ED: Only other thing I could think of is a hold in TRAPDOOR.

ME> OK.  Well anyway, I guess I'll have to make it more fun next time.  BTW
there won't be much to find on the BBS cept PD stuff.  I don't get into
cracking preaking or pirating.  Just a good ol' clean BBS.  The A4000 and
the A500 on the next desk are where the goodies are stored (all 700megs not
including two 1.3 gig tapes).

HIM> are you ready to play The Moz's "Let's make a deal?"

ME> ??

HIM>This is the deal, ok, I can get into your system no matter what you do,
this is fact, I do not destroy systems, I take files, look around and
leave. ok got that, this is the deal, you will not mention this to anyone,
as I monitor all DLG/ and sysops echos (yes your echo :), If I find you do,
I will (hate to say it) delete everything on your hd, no prelblem since you
have backups you say, but I will also insall my time-release viruses and
sooner or later you will tire of backing up, so.... you say nothing, and I
promise never to return to your system

ME>I don't take kind to threats.  Since I am clean.  I will simply call FCC,
BELL and INTERPOL and leave it up to them.  As for backups and tapes, well go
ahead.  I have 10 backups of the BBS dated a week apart and I will simply
install a previous one eacy time and the virus will never show up.  Now that
you have warned me.  That is exactly what I will do (for the BBS software).  I
can back up files seperatly and since I'm too busy to bother downliading and
unarching all files in the BBS I will never catch your virus. My users may but
not me.

ME>Sorry.  Had you asked simply for to mess around without me knowing that you
were getting in (that is if you get in and I don't catch you then there is not
much I can do except say, Moz got in again ah well.  But now that you have
threatend me.  I don't think I can take that lightly.

ME> Ah so now I know :)

HIM> no what?

ME> :) Oh I don't know.  Whatever.  I just got my new secure digital phones
for voice now I guess I gotta get rest of stuff secure :)

ED: I forgot to tell him that one of my customers is US Secret service.  They
will love it when I tell them I got a euro hacker breaking into one of my
systems!

HIM>he he, yes I have all your users password, just thought I'd let you know.
Did you hang up on me??

ME>I don't take to threats and if threated I call frends who have power to
hurt those that threaten.  You have their passwords?  How?  I will have to
check the logs again but I don't see any downloads from CLI ...

HIM>I deleted your logs

ME>You did?  Na, I'm not sure about that.  If you did then you left the logs
exactly right from the last time I allowd somone to transfer a file from
CLI :)

ED: he did not know I rewrote XPRTRANSFER and a few other programs to create
their own logs of usage.  He did delete my TRAPDOOR and normal DLG and DLGMAIL
logs.

HIM> hmm, well I'm gonna say how I did it, nut anyways, I will explain to you
why I threaten you, you see, if this method gets out, other hackers will
figure it out as well, I and I know many hundreds of sysops don't want this,
this is why I ask you know to say anything, if you do, the method MAY b
discovered, as of now, I am very sure I am the only one who knows how to do
this

HIM>hello

ME>Sorry got distracted looking at my logs again :)  No, I will not leak such
things.  I don't like to propagate insanity and that is exactly what would
happen... Now if this were how to break into MAXIMUS or some other IBM board
:) nope, only amiga sosrry

ME> :)  I mean then it may pay to get back at the IBM guys :)  Nah, I'm not
that cruel either.  I'm the type that could write a virus but instead try
to do some other clever stuff at the low level (useful)...

HIM>hmm, well anyway, I am glad you understand, but I'm not sure, there are
other systems, that I have hacked, and did not get a chance to clean-up my
work, so the word maybe getting out soon. I will ask if I may finish the
download on the file

ED: check your files guys.

ME> The file?  which file?

HIM> I was downoading the dlg_099 bbs archive, I have mostofit already

ME> I would rather you do not.  It *IS* my BBS minus the security keys.

HIM>I already have manypeoples security keys, I just want the newest version
of DLG, I ru Xenolink, but I like to mess around with DLG

ME>The newest is 1.0 and that is what I'm running now.

HIM>can you give me the archive?

ME> It is not archived.  I installed it from the disks I just got.

HIM>ah, it would be nice to have the  disk archives :)

ME>:)  Yea not sure I want to archive those since I know they will have my
keys in them and they also may be hidden on the disk in other places.  You
know those DLG boys they were veminent about pirating their stuff.

HIM>yeah ok well I understand, I just didn't want to go hack another DLG board
for it, but I guess I will have to eh? Oh by the way, I like your lha.key "For
everyone" haaha

ME>Yea I need to change that.  I got that from someone before I realized that
the keyfile was ripped.  I will probably drop back to 1.38 since it works well
or I will try to get the UNIX version to compile again.  I got close the last
time. 

HIM>well, I guess if you will not give me the dlg disk, I will be leaving, on
to yet another system, maybe DLG HQ
:) 

HIM>:)  If you can get it from there then I guess you deserve to have it in
your posession!  No, I'd rather not distribute the BBS.  If it were some
other application, maybe, but the BBS is kinda vital (same can be said
about my C compiler).

HIM>hehe yes, I've been looking at the c source for your gwterm and I guess
your starting a rIpterm, 

ED: A mistake I had copied the entire dir to the BBS when I transfered an
older version to the BBS.  If he looks closly he will see the executable does
not match the sources.

ME> Yea.  It's been postponed by another program (a more commercial venture),
however this holiday will get me some time to work on it and some of the other
PD/share/free programs I have.

HIM>do you have the bbs number for tpt tech?

ME>Hold.  I know it is in nodelist
403-347-3262 is HST

HIM>this is cannpij pidj dpij

HIM>this is canada??

ME>Yes 403-347-3269 is v32 not sure if it is .bis 14.4 I think it is.

HIM>ah nevermind, let's just say Canada's phone system is a little more
"ambitous" for my taste

ED: Damn.  I was hoping he would try so I could tel TPT to double capture all
logs.

ME>:)  Yea I hear ya.  I'm not sure how much longer ma-bell and all the other
junk (sprint/mci) will finally decide to catch up and attempt to be modern.
 Its a joke to see how bad the security of those systems are.  And living
here in Ft LauderDale I've discovered that a guy down the street has been
listening in on other folks cordless conversations (not that I also do that
:) but he has equipment to also TALK on the same freqs and thus if someone
leaves their hand set off the charger, well then he could make some free
phone calls :)

HIM> he he, well I guess I will be off, I may come and "visit" sometime in the
future

ME> Just leave a note if you get in.  If you are able I cannot really stop
you, but I'd just like to know if you did.  You don't have to say when but
just so I' wont get confused when I see that I dropped to dos when I havent :)

HIM> well, I'll leave your logs alone next time

HIM> OK.  That'll help.  Thanks for being honest about being the one who
did... Of couse if you really have all the passwords how do I know this is
really you :)  ANyway... You never did say how you got in...

HIM> haha and I never will (Actually when all my funis over, I will be
anonymously netmailing all bbs authors and a "fix")

ED: all authors?  so is it a TD thing or a BBS thing?

ME> OK.  That should be adquate.  Sounds like your just having fun.  Just
don't make it too expensive on the phone companies here.  I don't want to see
my phone rates go up! :)

HIM> eh, I pay for my calls. 

ED: Then why was he scared to call canada?

ME> OK.  Well then it is really for the fun of it then eh.  OK.. WIll let you
go find another system.   Thanks for not taking too much from this one.

HIM> :0

So now that you have seen this I wonder how many other systems he has gotten
into.

I have called the FCC and the local BELL (Actually got someone on the
holiday!).  And I will be talking to my friends in some of the other federal
departments (esp Secret Service) as the last thing I need is someone trying to
break into my systems.

To prevent phone phreaking and credit card fraud, I have informed MCI and BELL
of numbers I call, what times and for how long on both data and voice.  I have
frozen my credit cards and all other credit.  Don't need them anymore since I
now have a more steady paycheck :).

I have changed my BBS so that even I do not have SYSOP or drop to dos
capabilities.  This will BITE when I want to change/add/delete menus or
validate files, however I will be writing some utilities to allow me to do
this only on this machine.

This guy has me really pissed.  First he guesses (cracks guesses cyphers all
the same) a really good password, then he tries to rip off my software, then
he threatens me which all causes me to remove my own privledges (remote sysop
accesses) just to protect me from him.

Well I will have to wait and see if he gets in again.  In the mean time I have
protected the BBS by making it so NO-ONE, not even myself, has the right to
drop to dos.  NO-ONE, not even myself has the right to the SYSOP MENUS to
change/edit a user account so they can drop to dos.

As for the VIRUSES, I have a way around that as well.  Even if he gets in, he
will not be able to change any of the BBS's executables (no it is not C:LOCK,
or C:PROTECT since I know you are reading this echo). I'll keep this one
underhat.  All I will say is that only I will be able to protect the
executables this way.

I'm one who likes low level system stuff so I will be writing some special
software to monitor breakins (the XPRTRANSFER and other loggers were written
to monitor some of my co-sysops in IOWA and they just happen to see what was
going on so there will be other tasks I will write to monitor and log
discretely other activities such as dos command execution and what tasks
spawned other tasks and such.

So be warned that there is someone out there trying to crack in and steal your
software!

I'm waiting to see this guy come back and mess with this system.  I love
dealing with law enforcment agencies.
