tblount@mchsi.com

Cracktalk will soon begin it's 8th year. The first issues were onlysent to customers who were on the Cream of the Crop autoship list. Thenewsletter went public a couple months later (12-18-97). I combined allthe back issues and the word count came to about a half million words,over 3 million characters and over 10,000 links... and that's withoutthe hot deals, cool links and a lot of "special services" thatsupporting members have been emailed, ad free! You can download a 1 megzipped file of all back issues through the last one from: http://home.mchsi.com/~tblount/index.htm

Fast-Moving Bagle Worms Open PCs' Backdoors
Two new versions of the venerable Bagle worm are on the loose, infectingPCs and opening backdoors as they go. Once the backdoor is opened onPort 81, the worms listen passively for instructions from a remote host.Experts say that the worm likely will try to upload more files toinfected PCs at some point in the future.http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1696931,00.asp?kc=EWRSS03129TX1K0000614

AN Israeli hacker on October 30 has found a security hole in Google'sGmail web-based e-mail service that would allow remote users to hijackaccounts.
"A remote user can create a specially crafted link that, when loaded bythe target user, will disclose the target user's cookie. With the targetuser's cookie, the remote user can then access the target user'saccount," the website added.
Google has acknowledged the security flaw but reports indicated that theproblem has yet to be fixed. http://news.inq7.net/infotech/index.php?index=1&story_id=16845

Microsoft E-Mail Looks Like Spam
For a year, Microsoft Corp. has extolled the virtues of the Can-SpamAct, which Congress passed in late 2003 to crack down on purveyors ofunwanted bulk e-mail. But some think the software giant is engaged inits own spamming. Chief executive Steven A. Ballmer's mass e-mailpromoting Microsoft products has caused a stir among spam opponents.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A26555-2004Nov4.html?nav%3Drss_technology&sub=AR

15 Year Old Hacker With Quite a Resume'
He is a self-taught hacker going by his Net alias 'Wired'.
'I read about all these things that were happening on the Internet, andI couldn't believe you could do it so I went to find out for myself,'said Wired.
His curiosity led him to scour the Internet for how-to information onhacking. Along the way, he also taught himself programming skills.
Wired spends six to eight hours a day in front of the computer - andthat's just on weekdays.
Wired is now occupied with what he calls 'Internet marketing', fromwhich he gets a stable income to the tune of $10,000 a month. He has 12PCs in his HDB apartment, and sitting next to one is a Sony Aibo, arobotic dog - a gift from a client. http://it.asia1.com.sg/newsdaily/news002_20041103.html

Queen of the Sky Gets the Pink Slip
Air hostess Ellen Simonetti, who was suspended for including photos ofherself in uniform on her personal blog, has been sacked by DeltaAirlines. She was originally suspended without pay in early Octoberwhile an investigation was carried out.http://queenofsky.journalspace.com/ (darn... that site disappeared)
Never fear... Google archived it:http://216.239.39.104/search?q=cache:FaL3SGFIlvgJ:queenofsky.journalspace.com/+delta+%22queen+of+sky%22&hl=en
How ironic it is that an airline would fire a lady for photos on herblog in their uniform (she wasn't nude.) I can remember when theairlines used ads with nice young flight attendants saying "Fly me, I'mJane," or "We really shake our tails for you" or "coffee, tea, or me."
They didn't fire male attendants when it was pointed out that they hadposted photos in their Delta uniforms.
Delta, the company that fired her, has used slogans like "fly Delta fora bucking good time" and "we promise you a good ride."
I think the queen should consider herself lucky http://www.avaruusmies.com/jokes/images/211.html?send=true
Here is a top ten list of Delta's slogans: http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/mattheerat/delta.htm

Some RAW political humor at this site. Don't say I didn't warn you. Itgets real raw under the Regan/Nancy section. http://whitehouse.org/

Not your grandfather's Catholic Church
The Vatican has published a pamphlet called "It's a Sin Not to Do It,"in which the Church sanctions masturbation for married women, and urgesCatholics to have sex more frequently. http://www.ewtn.com/vnews/getstory.asp?number=50987
We have wondered where celibate Catholic Cardinals get such profoundinsight to human sexuality?

Map of the recent US presidential election
This county by county map shows how rural people everywhere voteRepublican while city folk vote Democratic. Note the statistic that Bushwon nearly 5 times as many square miles as Kerry.http://www.usatoday.com/news/politicselections/vote2004/countymap.htm
It's really interesting to save both images to a folder then load themin a viewer and click back and forth and see how little changed...except some noticeably dwindling in the support for the Democraticcandidate.

I was explaining phobias to my son the other night during Monday NightFootball because John Madden - the color commentator - has such a fearof flying (aerophobia) that he travels in a motor home to the events inspite of a LOT of driving.
Then I ran across taphephobia in the news. Anyone know what it is? Here is a hint and what a man did to deal with it: http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1160966.html
Many people who suffer from phobias begin to think that something iswrong with them or that they're crazy. This is simply not true. In fact,in a strange sort of way having a phobia proves that your brain isworking. This article explains more: http://www.healthyplace.com/Communities/Anxiety/phobias_2.asp
There are hundreds of phobias... probably the best known isArachnophobia - fear of spiders - because there was a popular movie bythat title or claustrophobia - fear of close places. http://www.phobialist.com/
Here is a good pickup line: "Hi, I have gynophobia. Can you help me?"
You don't have to worry about this one this month: Paraskavedekatriaphobia
Now close your eyes and spell that.

Spammers get Slammer
A North Carolina man has become the latest example of Virginia'scrackdown on spam, after being found guilty for sending hundreds ofthousands of unwanted advertising e-mails. Jeremy Jaynes, considered oneof the top ten spammers in the world by Spamhaus, was sentenced to nineyears in prison.
For all the talk about how this was an anti-spam case, that's notentirely true. The focus was less on the spamming and more on thescamming of what was in the email -- even if it was brought underVirgina's anti-spam law. It makes you wonder why they used the anti-spamlaw at all, rather than using more time-tested anti-fraud laws. In fact,the defendant, who insists he's "innocent" is vowing to challenge theconviction because he claims the anti-spam law violates his FirstAmendment rights.
