Telenet Courtesy of Exodus Orig. by JR It seems that not many of you know that Telenet is connected to about 80 computer-networks in the world. No, I don't mean 80 nodes, but 80 networks with thousands of unprotected computers. When you call your local Telenet- gateway, you can only call those computers which accept reverse-charging- calls. If you want to call computers in foreign countries or computers in USA which do not accept R-calls, you need a Telenet-ID. Did you ever notice that you can type ID XXXX when being connected to Telenet? You are then asked for the password. If you have such a NUI (Network-User-ID) you can call nearly every host connected to any computer-network in the world. Here are some examples: 026245400090184 :Is a VAX in Germany (Username: DATEXP and leave mail for CHRIS !!!) 0311050500061 :Is the Los Alamos Integrated computing network (One of the hosts connected to it is the DNA (Defense Nuclear Agency)!!!) 0530197000016 :Is a BBS in New Zealand 024050256 :Is the S-E-Bank in Stockholm, Sweden (Login as GAMES !!!) 02284681140541 :CERN in Geneva in Switzerland (one of the biggest nuclear research centers in the world) Login as GUEST 0234212301161 :A Videotex-standard system. Type OPTEL to get in and use the ID 999_ with the password 9_ 0242211000001 :University of Oslo in Norway (Type LOGIN 17,17 to play the Multi-User-Dungeon !) 0425130000215 :Something like ITT Dialcom, but this one is in Israel ! ID HELP with password HELP works fine with security level 3 0310600584401 :Is the Washington Post News Service via Tymnet (Yes, Tymnet is connected to Telenet, too !) ID and Password is: PETER You can read the news of the next day ! The prefixes are as follows: 02624 is Datex-P in Germany 02342 is PSS in England 03110 is Telenet in USA 03106 is Tymnet in USA 02405 is Telepak in Sweden 04251 is Isranet in Israel 02080 is Transpac in France 02284 is Telepac in Switzerland 02724 is Eirpac in Ireland 02704 is Luxpac in Luxembourg 05252 is Telepac in Singapore 04408 is Venus-P in Japan ...and so on... Some of the countries have more than one packet-switching-network (USA has 11, Canada has 3, etc). OK. That should be enough for the moment. As you see most of the passwords are very simple. This is because they must not have any fear of hackers. Only a few German hackers use these networks. Most of the computers are absolutely easy to hack !!! So, try to find out some Telenet-ID's and leave them here. If you need more numbers, leave e-mail. I'm calling from Germany via the German Datex-P network, which is similar to Telenet. We have a lot of those NUI's for the German network, but none for a special Tymnet-outdial-computer in USA, which connects me to any phone #. CUL8R, Mad Max PS: Call 026245621040000 and type ID INF300 with password DATACOM to get more Informations on packet-switching-networks ! PS2: The new password for the Washington Post is KING !!!!
