241st! Ya know, I am not sure why my RC5 output is increasing so much lately. I actually disabled the client on my main server at home. The server is stuck between two dressers and has a second server sitting on top of it. Needless to say, the air flow isn't so great and the temperature was simply too hot when running the proc at 100% 24/7. Maybe someone else is cracking for me... That would make for a pretty cool trojan/virus. Have it simply install dnetc then attempt to infect other computers. When it was finally discovered, would be shut down, but hopefully not until I had won the $1000 prize.

I just found my new cell phone. I have put off buying one for almost a year now. The pager provided by work is just not enough to keep my in touch with everyone. I have had two instances where people needed to get in touch with me and the pager has failed. The main problem is that the pager is connectionless communication. Someone dails and number or sends an email, but they get zero confirmation that the page was actually received. With a cell phone, you know if you get through instantaneously. Pagers should be banned.

288th! Woohoo!

More exploits and fun. DePaul university has not IP restricted their printers. You can just ftp into any of these IPs and dump a print job:,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and the list goes on.

Well, gotta love the errors of others. Bugtraq was specifically told not to release this code for a telnetd exploit, but now everyone has it. I tested it on one of my servers (FreeBSD 4.3 release) and it worked. It has to send 16 MEGS of data to the target box, but it works. Try it on your friends today!
