:: Despite the MTN Voicemail system now being relatively free of Software   ::
:: bugs, it is still ridden with security flaws caused by MTN's lack of     ::
:: proper explanation of how exactly the Voicemail system works. The        ::
:: following is quoted from an MTN instruction manual...                    ::
::                                                                          ::
:: "You may want to set a password for your mailbox. Make it something easy ::
::  to remember, like the first 4 digits of your phone number."             ::
::                                                                          ::
:: What they *dont* explain is that anyone who knows this password can axs  ::
:: your vmb and that a default password of "1234" will be present if you    ::
:: neglect to set one. The general security on the MTN Voicemail system is  ::
:: incredibly slack, save the MTN employee VMB's.                           ::
::                                                                          ::
:: There are fewer unused VMB's than on the Vodacom system and the VMB's    ::
:: usually have fewer privaleges, but security in general is far inferior   ::
:: to the security on Vodacom VMB's and social engineering is easier too,   ::
:: these guys don't ask why, they just reset the VMB. ;-)                   ::
::                                                                          ::
:: Oh, and one last thing, try as *hard* as you can to hack the VMB of any  ::
:: number that starts with (083) 2121 because these are phones with MTN     ::
:: employee privaleges. Find some-one with a really high status and you     ::
:: could take over MTN comlpletely. =)                                      ::
::                                                                          ::
:: Don't do anything I wouldn't do. (evil fucking grin)                     ::
::                                                                          ::
