Boca Bandit's Basics of LD Phreaking




       THE BASICS OF LD PHREAKING
 
               VOLUME #2
 
       TYPED BY THE BOCA BANDIT
 
    THE BOCA HARBOUR (305)-487-4130
 
WELL IN THE FIRST VOLUME, WE BRIEFLY
DISCUSSED ALL OF THE NEW INNOVATIONS AND
SOME OTHER TIDY TIDBITS IN MINOR
DETAIL.
 
IN THIS VOLUME WE WILL DEVELOP ON
PICTUREFONE, MA BELL AND ALL HER
ABILITIES, & LAST BUT NOT LEAST "THE
BASICS OF LD PHREAKING".
 
NOW FIRST PICTUREFONE. PICTUREFONE IS A
TELEVISION-VIDEO HOOKUP IN YOUR OFFICE,
HOME ETC. WHICH WILL ENABLE YOU TO
SPEAK AND COMMUNICATE AT THE SAME TIME,
IN OTHERWORDS, YOU CAN SEE WHO YOU ARE
TALKING TO. THIS IS A VERY VERY NEW
ISDN INNOVATION. NOW LETS DISCUSS IT IN
BOTH THE FUNDAMENTALS AND THE
DISADVANTAGES.
 
OF COURSE A DEFINITE PLUS WOULD BE THE
VIDEO, BUT IS THIS REALLY DESIRABLE?
WELL LETS SEE, IF YOU CALL YOU BUDDY ON
THE PHONE AND YOU JUST GOT OUTA THE
SHOWER AND YOU WANNA GET CHANGED OR
YOUR GIRLFRIEND IS ON THE PHONE AND SHE
HAS ONE OF THOSE MASKS ON OR YOU CALL
YOUR WIFE AND SEE IN THE BACKROUND
ANOTHER MAN IT CAN BE VERY
DETRAMENTLE.  WELL, BASICALLY THE SYSTEM
WORKS ON A MICROWAVE STATION JUST AS A
TV STATION EXCEPT YOU ACCESS THESE
WAVES BY USE OF THE SPECIAL TELEPHONE
LINE DESIGNED BY MA BELL. THE SYSTEM IS
KEYED BY WHAT ELSE, A 2600HZ TONE TO
ACTIVATE THE VOICE DIALING SYSTEM, THEN
WHEN A CONNECTION IS ESTABLISHED,
INSTANTANIOUSLY THE CAMERA ON YUR END
ACTIVATES AND TRANSMITS BACK TO MA BELL
SWITCHING INFO AND IS THEN ROUTED ON THE
CORRECT VIDEO LINE CORRESPONDING TO
YOUR PHONE NUMBER.  WHEN THE CONNECTION
IS BROKEN, THE MA BELL SWITCHING OFFICE
AUTOMATICALLY SHUTS OFF THE VIDEO
OUTPUT AND THE LINE VOLTAGE RETURNS TO
NORMAL. THERE IS NO OPTION AS OF YET TO
SHUT ON AND OFF THE VIDEO DISPLAY, THIS
WOULD BE VERY COMPLICATED BECAUSE THE
RECEIVING SCREEN IS NOT A TYPICAL TV
SCREEN BUT A MONITOR AND DOES NOT USE
TYPICAL TRANSISTORS, IT HAS TO WORK IN
CO-OP WITH THE BELL SYSTEM AND
THEREFORE CANNOT JUST BE "SHUT-OFF".
 
A TEST SYSTEM OF PICTURE PHONE AS
MENTIONED IN VOLUME #1, IS IN OPERATION
IN GERMANY. WITH THIS NEW SYSTEM WILL
ALSO BE AVAILABLE THAT NIFTY LITTLE
OPTION TO SEE THE ORIGINATING PHONE
NUMBER FLASH WHEN A PERSON-TO-PERSON
DIRECT CALL IS PLACED. THIS WILL BE
OPTIONAL FOR ABOUT $1000 MORE.
AVAILABLE WITH PICTUREFONE IS A SYSTEM
CALLED PRIVCODE. THIS AWESOME LITTLE
INNOVATION IS A HANDY PRIVACY FEATURE.
IT'S SIMPLE, WHEN THE UNIT IS ON,
NO-ONE CAN GET THROUGH UNLESS THEY
ENTER A 3 DIGIT ACCESS #, CALLERS ARE
GREETED BY A SYTHESIZED VOICE (FEMALE)
AND ASKED FOR THEIR ID#. AT ALL TIMES
YOU CAN SEE WHO IS TRYING TO ACCESS
YOUR PHONE. IF THE RIGHT CODE IS
ENTERED, IT WILL PAGE YOU ASKING YOU IF
YOU WANT TO TALK TO XXXX.
 
ALL IN ALL, PICTUREPHONE SHOULD BE A
VERY NICE CHANGE FROM THE BOREDOM OF
REGULAR PHONES.
 
---------------------------------------
 
     [ THE BASICS OF LD PHERAKING ]
 
 
FOR THE NEXT 5 MINUTES OR SO I WILL
OCCUPY YOUR TIME WITH THE ETHICS AND
HOW TO GET STARTED IN LD (LONG
DISTANCE) FREAKING.
 
FIRST OF ALL THERE ARE MANY MEANS YOU
CAN USE, THE MOST COMMON OF WHICH IS
THE LONG DISTANCE SAVERS, EI: MCI,
TEL-TEC, SPRINT, NEWTORK,
METROFONE, ITT. THE PURPOSE OF THESE
SERVIES IS FOR THE CUSTOMER TO SAVE
MONEY ON LONG DISTANCE CALLING BY
BUYING A CODE FROM THE SELCTED SERVICE
AND USING THAT CODE TO ACCESS THE
COMPANIES PHONE LINES. WELL THE
TCHNOLOGICAL ASSISTANCE GROUP STEPPED
IN AND BEGAN TO "HACK" OR HAVE PROGRAMS
TRY CODES IN SEQUENTIAL ORDER UNTIL ONE
WAS DISCOVERED. THEN THEY WOULD CALL UP
THE PHONE SERVICE AND ENTER THERE NEWLY
DISCOVERED CODE AND BANG! YOU ARE ABLE
TO CALL ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY ON
SOME-ONE ELSES BILL! WELL THE FORMAT
FOR DIALING ONE OF THESE SERVICES IS:
 
THE SERVICE NUMBER, (IE:SPRINT) THEN
THE CODE+AREA CODE+DESTIN NUMBER. NO '1'
IS NEEDED. THIS IS THE NECCESETY OF A
TRUE PHONE PHREAK. IT IS NO LONGER
VERY WISE TO "ABUSE" CERTAIN SERVICES
FOR THEY HAVE SET UP CERTAIN SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS TO CATCH THE FONE FREAKS.
THE ETHICS, OR WAY TO DO IT, IS AS
FOLLOWS:
 
 
THESE STEPS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR
SAFETY AND PROTECTION..
 
1) ALWAYS USE A CODE THAT LOTS OF
   OTHERS USE!
2) IF POSSIBLE PHREAK TO THE SERVICE
   THROUGH ANOTHER SERVICE, IE: SPRINT
   TO TEL-TEC.
3) SWITCH CODES OCCASIONALY.
4) NEVER CALL VOICE UNLESS THE PERSON
   YOU CALL HAS INSTANT AMNESIA.
5) NEVER GIVE INFO LEADING TO THE
   CAPTURE OF OTHER PHONE PHREAKS
   BECAUSE THEY WILL ALWAYS COME BACK
   TO YOU AFTER THEY ARE DONE.
 
FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO STILL INSIST
THAT THE LD SERVICES TRACE, HERE IS
YOUR ANSWER. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO
PUT A TRACE ON CODES ETC. IT IS FAR TOO
EXPENSIVE FOR AN ANR TAP OR A FULL LD
SYSTEM TAP SO THE COMPANIES WILL USE A
DEVICE CALLED A  PEN TAP ON YOUR LINE
IF YOU ARE SUSPECTED OF HEAVY ACTIVITY.
A PEN TAP GIVES A PRINTOUT OF ALL THE
#'S YOU DIAL AND THE NUMBER DIALED.
VERY HANDY BUT NOT SUBMISSABLE AS COURT
EVIDENCE, ONLY USED TO SCARE YOU. IF
YOU ARE EVER CALLED ABOUT PHREAKING AND
YOU KNOW THEY HAVE YOU, CLAIM ONLY 5
CALLS OR SO, THEY CANNOT FORCE YOU OR
PROVE THAT YOU MADE MORE. IF THE
EVIDENCE IS SHAKY DENY EVERYTHING.
 
IF YOU ARE A SYSOP AND HAVE A PHREAK
BOARD, HERE IS YOU POSITION IN THE EYES
OF THE LAW: YOU ARE ENTITLED AS A
PERSON TO POSSESS THE INFO. THEY CANNOT
BUST YOU UNLESS THEY CAN PROVE A PHONE
PHREAK GOT HIS INFO OFF YOUR BBS, USED
THAT CODE AND HAS TO GET A LIST OF ALL
THE PLACES CALLED. ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.
SO DO NOT WORRY.

            [ MOTHER BELL! ]
 
WELL, FROM TECHNICAL JOURNALS FROM MA
BELL LABS AND A FEW INSIDE SOURCES,
HERE IS A RUNDOWN ON HOW POWERFUL MA
BELL IS.
 
MA BELL CAN DETECT ANYTHING, REPEAT
ANYTHING THAT OCCURS ON HER LINE. SHE
CAN DETECT ANY TYPE OF BOX, HOLD
BUTTONS WITHOUT THE RIGHT RESISTOR,
MODEMS, VOICES, CARRIERS ETC. MA BELL
HAS THE MOST FASCINATING POWER OF ALL,
VERIFYING! BUT HERE IS HOW MA BELL CAN
DETECT ALL THIS SHIT. THE SOUTHERN BELL
TELEPHONE PROCESSESING COMPUTER, OR
COSMOS, HAS BEEN PROGRAMMED TO DETECT
ANY ILLEGAL TONES, IRREGULAR CALLS,
EXTENSIVE RINGING, MODEM CARRIERS ETC.
WHEN YOU DO ANYHING COSMOS IS UNHAPPY
WITH, SHE DROPS WHAT IS CALLED A
TROUBLE CARD TO SOUTHER BELL SECURITY
AND ON THE CARD IS PRINTED THIS:
 
 
LINE DEFERRED TROUBLE FOR XXX-XXX-XXXX
ON XXX 1984 OR WHATEVER. PROBLEM:
UNIDENTIFIBALE SERVICE TONE FOR ESS#X
OR SXS OR WHATEVER THE PROBLEM IS.
 
ANALYSIS: TELLS WEATHER IT IS
EXTENSIVE TROUBLE OR NOT.
 
FROM THERE, MA BELL PROCEEDS TO TAKE
ACTION, EITHER BY INVESTIGATION, TAPS
OR PAYING YOU A LITTLE VISIT. FOR MORE
DETAILS ON MA BELL PLEADE READ LEX
LUTHOR'S PHILE, 'THE INVESTIGATIVE
PROCEDURES OF MA BELL.' VERY GOOD.
 
IN THE NEXT VOLUME, LD TAPS WILL BE
DICUSSED,AND FOR ALL YOU PARANOID ONES,
THE REAL TRUTH BEHIND LD TAPPING.
 
WELL BASICALLY, THAT COVERS WHAT NEEDED
TO BE COVERD IN THIS VOLUME. IN THE
NEXT VOLUME WILL BE INFORMATION
CONCERNING TAPS, NEW PHONE LINES, THE
UPCOMING SWITCH BY MA BELL,  AND POLICE
SACNNER FREQUENCIES AND TONES IN
DETAIL. WATCH FOR VOLUME 3 WITHIN A
MONTH OF RELEASE OF THIS.
