Man banished from PayPal for showing how to hack PayPal

Bob Howard

It's all happened before...

Have a look on here... hackervoice.co.uk...

@ Job by Glynn2

He wasn't a 31337 hacker. He admits that himself!

He wrote a perl script that searched a list of IP's for Window$ systems with the username of Administrator and a blank password. Not exactly a chained exploit there...

He then used PC anywhere to get onto the systems.

Not that I'm railing on Solo, he's a decent bloke and I hope this all works out for him soon!

Mobile fingerprinting heads to another 10 police forces

Bob Howard

It's not that bad... So far...

I've had a play with one of these things. It only searches on the index fingers of the hands, and doesn't record any information of searches, whether successful or not...

Currently, the only times you'll get added to the database is when they arrest you, and either get ya on a Livescan system or take your prints with ink.

The lantern doesn't search the crime-scene marks database either...
