HA! Most of the movie makes me cringe, but when the phreak says "28.8kpbs modem" and says all four letters I laugh out loud every time. Oh man is that movie god-awful.

Wow, that's different. As an administrator of your own system, you may want to find out how that actually works. If random groups can make directories etc... that could be insecure.

Out of curiosity, did you upgrade? If so did you install it as the same user as the original install?

AFAIK, software should always be installed as root for security. What are the names of the groups / users corresponding to the UIDs/GIDs you listed for your system.

loading.dat gives read and write permissions to user 990, and no permissions to group 1150 and everyone else. All the other .dat files give read and write permissions to user 990, and read only permissions to group 1150 and other users. If you think the permissions are the problem, use chmod 775 lo...

If you bounce a connection, (example: to InterNIC then to every public access server), click "Save" on the map, then remove them from your view, the connection reappears after you click "Load" on the map screen. The 1.54 version is now saving the connection even when you quit the...

http://guide.modlink.net/section1.php Section 1.4 - last line This implies that a voice mail system does keep logs. So a direct connect to collect a voice sample is not enough to get you caught, but if you route through it, the passive trace will still find a 'routes x.x.x.x to x.x.x.x' log entry?

You may not want to directly connect to that person's voicemail. I'm not a dev, but I've heard rumors that that leaves a log just like a computer hack attempt. Always bounce the call and delete the 'routed to' logs at InterNIC.

Keep in mind there was a nasty little bug in 1.31 that would make the game fail the copy protection check. If you bought the game from Introversion, I highly recommend that you login to the Introversion Store and download the latest full version. (Not the patch, but a full version. No will not send ...

I think that what's going on is you're deleting the wrong set of logs on InterNIC: I then went and deleted ALL logs of internic, except the first login I ever did ( so it showed connect-disconnect ), and i STILL get caught. You wanna delete all your connections prior to the hack and leave one short ...
