WARNING! About bluebox in the UK

TEXT FILE WRITTEN ON: 13.10.92
------------------------------

THIS TEXTFILE IS DIRECTED AT ALL PEOPLE CURRENTLY BLUEBOXING FROM INSIDE 
THE UNITED KINGDOM.

THIS IS ONLY AN INFORMATION TEXT AND IS TO BE USED AS SUCH.
                -----------
AS YOU WILL BE AWARE ON MONDAY THE 12th OCTOBER AT 7.00 pm ALL LINES WHICH
WERE BLUEBOXABLE USING OLD AND 'NEW' METHODS WHICH MOST DO NOT KNOW ABOUT
BECAME ENGAGED AT THE SAME TIME..THEY WERE NOT RETURNED TO A CALLABLE STATE
UNTIL 12.00am ON TUESDAY.

THE NUMBERS WERE NOT JUST ENGAGED VIA THE LOCAL EXCHANGE AS DOES HAPPEN
SOMETIMES... THESE NUMBERS WERE ACTUALLY GIVING OUT THE BUSY TONES FOR EACH
INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES....

OK. YOU MAY THINK THIS IS NO PROBLEM...

WELL LET ME PUT THIS TO YOU... 

FOR BRITISH TELECOM TO AUTHORIZE MAINTENANCE WORK AT THIS KIND OF LEVEL AND
ALSO AT THIS KIND OF TIME.. 

(I.E. LITERALLY 'TURNING OFF' THE DIALUPS TO THE HOME COUNTRY DIRECT NUMBERS)
, THE DECISION MUST HAVE BEEN AT A V-E-R-Y
HIGH LEVEL INDEED... THINK THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY WILL HAVE LOST DUE TO
THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT ABLE TO PLACE CALLS
(Pause)...More(y/n/ns)? 
THROUGH THE HOME COUNTRY NUMBERS....THEY WERE OBVIOUSLY NOT MESSING ABOUT
WHEN THEY DID THIS.. THEY MUST HAVE HAD A VERY GOOD REASON TO DO THIS. 

ANOTHER POINT I HAD BETTER MAKE IS THIS:

DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHERE YOU ARE BOXING OFF ????

SOME PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK IT IS THE M.C.I. SATELLITE.. 
ALTHOUGH THIS SEEMS A GOOD IDEA M.C.I. DO NOT HAVE A SATELLITE... 

BUT ANYWAY..............

YOU ARE BOXING OFF THE: B R I T I S H  T E L E C O M   SATELLITE.....

OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS B.T. HAVE REALISED THE LOOPHOLE (DELIBERATE OR
OTHERWISE) WHICH HAS ENABLED U.K. BLUEBOXERS TO USE ORDINARY ROUTING
SIGNALS TO ENABLE THE FREE CALLING.....

SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THE FOLLOWING:

1. M.F. TONES HEARD WHEN CALLING THE HOME COUNTRY DIRECT NUMBER
2. STRANGE SEIZING CLICKS (MORE LIKE 4 OR 5 BEEPS CONSECUTIVELY)
3. A TONE HEARD BEFORE THE ACTUAL BLUE BOX ANSWER BEEPS...
4. LINES HELD OPEN.

THE FIRST ONE I AM NOT QUITE TOO SURE WHAT IT IS.....
MAYBE SOME KIND OF FEEBLE ATTEMPT AT A TRACE...

THE SECOND, THIRD AND FOURTH HOWEVER ARE THE ONES TO WORRY ABOUT...
THE STRANGE SEIZING CLICKS ARE WHAT FIRST ALERTS THE EXCHANGE A BREAK IS
(Pause)...More(y/n/ns)? 
BEING ATTEMPTED (DETECTS A HANGUP TONE AT THE SUBSCRIBER'S END AND NOTES
THAT THIS IS AN ILLEGAL ACTION AS INWARD SIGNALLING TONES SHOULDNT BE
DETECTED... [NOTE THE EXCHANGE DOESN'T DETECT THE ACTUAL TONES BUT THE
CLICKS THEMSELVES])

THE TONE WHICH IS HEARD BEFORE ANSWERING IS WHERE MANY OF THE LAMERS WHO DO
NOT REALISE HOW THE ACTUAL ECHANGES OPERATE ARE GOING TO BE CAUGHT...

THE TONE IS ACTUALLY A QUITE ADVANCED (FOR B.T.) FORM OF A.N.I. ALL WHO ARE
ON A DIGITAL NETWORK (OLD OR NEW) CAN BE TRACED WITHIN A MATTER OF SECONDS
OF HEARING THIS TONE. I SAY IT IS A NEW A.N.I. FOR B.T. BUT IS STILL NOT AS
GOOD AS THE AMERICAN ONE... REASON BEING YOU CAN HEAR IT....
EXAMPLES OF SAME A.N.I. TONE...

131...144....999 (ALTHOUGH FILTERED)

LINES HELD OPEN IS JUST SO THAT B.T. CAN ACCURATELY DETECT THE NUMBER YOU
ARE CALLING TO AND CALLING FROM.....

MANY OF YOU SUCH LAMERS WILL SAY THIS IS JUST ANOTHER BULLSHIT TEXTFILE BUT
I AM AFRAID THAT YOU ARE WRONG, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SERIOUS THINGS I
COULD WRITE..... THERE WILL BE BUSTS IN THE U.K. AND IF I COULD MAKE A
GUESS AT IT I WOULD SAY WITHIN AT LEAST 1 OR 2 MONTHS DEFINATELY....

REMEMBER IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO CALL OUT OF THE BOX, BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY
SENSE YOU WILL SWITCH TO CALLING CARDS.... AT LEAST THEN THE CALLING CARD
COMPANY WOULD HAVE TO SPEND 20,000 DOLLARS TO EXTRADITE YOU.. 

BUT I AM NOT YOUR RULER: PLEASE YOURSELF AND WHEN THE BUSTS ARE ANNOUNCED
                         ON TELEVISION DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YA !!!...
