    phreaking

    Hi pplz
    i have a question
    i have read several old txts on hacking and such and quite often they come to the subject of phreaking. i know what it is but is it possible to do things like red box still? i am pretty sure that the 2600hz tone wont work but i would like some pretty recent info on the phone systems if someone would be so kind

    thanx for the help antionline-ers

    Phone systems do vary from area to area and company to company. No, I don't think the 2600 thing has worked for a long time now

    If you want some free advise, don't bother with phreaking. Most things on the Internet about it is incredibly dated.

    I agree with jethro,

    with all the broadband users nowadays phreaking is a bit outdated.

    Mobile phreaking will propably catch on soon..
    But the normal "old fashioned" phreaking is not-done anymore..

    I have never used this but i recently read about some different boxes, and whether they still work or not. Apparently, red boxes (used to make free calls like in the movie hackers, or wargames) still work, but only on some phones. It can only be done on ACTS phones, not the newer COCOTs, card phones or Nortel Millenium payphones. If out of curiosity, you just had to try it then nothing i can say will stop you, but i wouldnt do it in a busy place. It looks suspicious walking into a phone booth, with a mp3 player or something and holding playing something into the mouthpiece. anyone who has half a brain will realize what you are doing.

    The article i got this from was written in 2001, so this should still be true

    AFAIK, blue boxing does work in some countries still, however this number is gradually decreasing, and they are generally very poor countries (i.e. those who can't afford to upgrade their phones)

    Also if you blue box a foreign phone via a "country direct" free number, there is a large amount of filtering and/or monitoring hardware/software (on the local high-tech end) on the lines, which increases the difficulty and risk.

    It probably is possible, but few people can risk doing it.

    Also cheaper internet calls and long distance (N. America) and international calls make blue boxing less worthwhile.

    Of course some of the more "low-tech" types of phreaking still work perfectly well (beige boxing or whatever), but obviously these are nasty forms of physical-access hacking which you should be aware of.

    Red boxing I have never heard of anyone doing successfully in my time

    Try your luck with these sites:
    http://www.mobile.box.sk/
    http://www.phonelosers.net
    http://www.phonelosers.org
    http://directory.google.com/Top/Comp...ing/Phreaking/

    I'm not sure what boxes work and what boxes don't, but the best way to find out is "trial and error". Good luck..
