Hacking GEnie




HACKING GENIE

BY:Silicon Rat
--------------

     I DIDN'T TELL ANYONE TO DO IT, I REALLY DIDN'T EVEN WANT THEM TO
DO IT.  I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHO THEY ARE OR WHAT THEY DID, BUT I HAVE
WITNESSES THAT WILL SAY THAT THEY KNOW THAT I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO DO IT.
     THE RUMORS AREN'T TRUE, THE PICTURES ARE OBVIOUSLY FAKES, MY 
SIGNATURE DOESN'T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THAT, AND THE WITNESSES ARE LIEING. (IN
FACT, I THINK MY LAWYER WAS SLEEPING WITH THE PROSECUTING ATTORNEY!)


     INFORMATION ON GENIE
     --------------------

     ACTUALLY CALLED 'GENIE', WHICH IS AN ACRONYM FOR 'GENERAL ELECTRIC
NETWORK FOR INFORMATION EXCHANGE'.
     GENIE IS GE'S REPLY TO COMPUSERVE. IT'S PRETTY MUCH THE SAME AS
COMPUSERVE; IT HAS SIG'S, BBS'S, A CB SIMULATOR, A MAIL SYSTEM,
VARIOUS NEWSLETTERS, MAGAZINES, AN ONLINE ENCYCLOPEDIA, AND ON-LINE GAMES.
     IT EVEN USES 3 LETTER COMMANDS FOR IT'S MENUES, JUST LIKE CPS.
(LIKE 'CAT' FOR 'CATEGORIES').  IT EVEN DIPLICATES THE 'PAGES' THE CPS OFFERS,
THE FORMAT FOR THE COMMAND ON GENIE IS 'M XXX', WHERE XXX IS THE PAGE
NUMBER.
     THE SIG'S ON GENIE (CALLED ROUNDTABLES), ARE A LOT MORE SPECIFIC
THAN ON COMPU-RIP, BUT THEY STILL SERVE THE SAME PURPOSE.  THERE ARE
ROUNDTABLES FOR GAMES, COMPUTERS, SCIENCE FICTION AND SCIENCE FANTASY
AND FOR BBSES, WHERE YOU CAN TRANSFER PROGRAMS UNDER THAT TOPIC.

     THE LARGEST VARIATION OCCURS IN THE AREA OF CHARGES.  GENIE IS
$ 1.25 CHEAPER DURING NON-PRIME TIME, THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY GENIE CHARGING
$ 35.00 DURING PRIME TIME.

     ALSO, UPLOADING, WHICH IS DONE IN XMODEM, IS FREE. DOWNLOADING WHICH
HAS THE SAME PROTOCALL AS UPLOADING, ALWAYS COSTS.

(SOUNDS LIKE LEACHES GONE CORPORATE TO ME)

     ALTHOUGH SOME PARTS OF GENIE LOOK LIKE THEY WERE SET UP WITH THE
LEAST AMOUNT OF PLANNING POSSIBLE, GENIE ATTEMPTS TO MAKE UP FOR IT BY
LISTENING TO A FEW OF THE COMMENTS THAT PEOPLE MAKE.


     CALLING GENIE
     -------------

     SINCE YOU CANNOT USE GATEWAYS TO ACCESS GENIE, GENIE HAS SET UP THEIR
OWN SET OF PORTS FOR YOU TO ACCESS. (ONCE AGAIN, THE PLANNING THAT WENT
INTO THIS SERVICE DAZZELS ME)
     FIRST, SET YOUR TERMINAL FOR HALF DUPLEX, OR CHAT MODE.
YOU CONNECT THROUGH A GENIE PORTAL BY CONNECTING, AND ENTERING "HHH",
AND A CARRIAGE RETURN.

     THEN THE PROMPT "U#=" WILL COME UP AND YOU ENTER YOUR ID AND PASSWORD.     THE 800 NUMBER IS FOR SIGNING UP ONLY, AND YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU
CANNOT ACTUALLY HACK OUT ANY PASSWORDS FROM THERE.  YOU NEED YOUR LOCAL 
ACCESS NUMBER TO DO THAT.

     THE FOLLOWING ARE ALL THE GENIE DIAL-UPS FOR WASHINGTON, OREGON, AND
CALIFORNIA.
     IF YOU CANNOT FIND A LOCAL DIALUP FOR YOUR AREA, JUST DIAL THE TOLL-
FREE NUMBER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST, AND GET IT FROM GENIE.


     HACKING GENIE
     -------------

     IT SEEMS THAT THE LONGEST PLANNING TIME FOR GENIE WENT INTO THE SECURITY.
     HACKING GENIE IS DEFINITELY A CHORE, AND ANYONE WHO SUCCEEDS
WINS MY INSTANT RESPECT. (ONLY IF YOU SEND ME THE INFO THAT YOU USED)
     HACKING GENIE IS TOUGH BECAUSE ALTHOUGH YOU CAN CALL UP THEIR 800
TRY-OUT LINE, YOU CANNOT JUST LIE ABOUT YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT AND GAIN
ACCESS UNTIL SOMEONE FINDS OUT.  THE REASON IS BECAUSE ALTHOUGH YOU GIVE
ALL YOUR NORMAL INFORMATION (YOUR ADDRESS, YOUR NAME, YOUR
TELEPHONE NUMBER, YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER)...YOU ALSO GIVE YOUR
MOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME, AND HOURS TO CALL YOU.  THEN A FEW DAYS
LATER, A GENIE OPERATOR CALLS YOU AND TELLS YOU YOUR PASSWORD, AND
YOUR MAILBOX NAME. PASSWORDS ARE ENTERED IN THE

ID#,PASS [RETURN]

     FORMAT.  YOUR ID# IS ACTUALLY 8 DIGITS AND LETTERS COMBINED,
EX. 'SEX12345'.  (DOESN'T HAVE TO HAVE A WORD IN IT, I JUST PULLED THAT ONE
OFF THE TIP OF MY TONGUE.)
     AND YOUR PASSWORD IS ANY WORD OR COMBINATION OF DIGITS AND LETTERS
THAT YOU CAN THINK OF. EX. 'SNOWBUNNY' SO THAT THE ENTIRE
CODE LOOKS LIKE THIS:

SEX12345,SNOWBUNNY [RETURN]

     MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO SPACES IN THE ID,PASSWORD COMBO,
(OR BETWEEN THE TWO) BECAUSE IF THERE ARE, THEY WILL BE COUNTED AS PART OF
THE PASSWORD.
     SO GUESSING SOMEONE'S ID&PASSWORD IS GOING TO BE PRETTY TRICKY.
     GENIE HAS AN 800 NUMBER SET UP RIGHT NOW, THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CALL
UP AND SIGN ON.  JUST CALL THE NUMBER, WHICH IS GIVEN AT THE END
OF THE FILE, AND WHEN YOU ARE CONNECTED, ENTER :

"HHH" [RETURN]
"5JM11988,GENIE" [RETURN]

     IT WILL TELL YOU THAT THE SERVICE YOU ARE USING IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE,
AND WILL TELL YOU THAT THE START-UP RATE IS $ 18.00, THEN IT WILL ASK YOU 
IF YOU WANT TO START UP.  ENTER "Y", AND THEN YOU CAN GET A LIST OF
LOCAL NUMBERS TO HACK ON.
