      Distributed by:  The Micro Master
      This file is dedicated to all you phreak/sysops out there who
      run those boards full of Longdistance codes, box plans, etc.
              Intro:  I purpose of this file is to explain to those
              sysops in fear of FEDs that they can safly run a board
              with the above mentioned info.on it.
              The Fear of the Sysop
      The number one fear of a sysop is having a FBI agent get access
      to the stuff on their board that could get them busted.  Today,
      the only thing you can really get busted for is the posting of
      long distance codes.  Therefor, all possible steps must be taken
      to avoid the access of this information.  (Steps will be
      explained latter)
      Due to this fear, Many sysops will NOT have these boards on
      their BBS.  I find it odd that this should be true, but, from
      info from a friend, any users are against having a phreak board
      because they fear losing a BBS to call and getting them selves
      busted (even though a good sysop would delete all user info. as
      soon as he though he was busted.).  I will explain the steps
      taken to stop being busted and perhaps it will bring
      understanding to those who blindly or misinformitly fear these
      The first, easyest, and most inportant step comes at validation.
      Voice validate the aplicant for access and ask these questions:
      #1:  Are you a programer for a company and/or do you sell
      software. #2:  Do you work for the government, have connections
      with it, and share info with it? #3:  Do you agree not to use
      any info. found on the board, or heard about the BBS against it?
      If you receive a no to the first two questions and a yes to the
      next then it is O.k. to validate them Any evasive answers should
      be pursued until a definate yes or no is given. Any untruthful
      answers void the right to use info in court due to illegal
      access to system laws.
      That is step one, if by some chance a FBI agent still gets in,
      you should still be safe if you use the next procedures.
      Give only people that have done the following access to the
      phreak board:
      Admited they are a phreak.
      Given codes.
      Admited that they will use codes for other than educational
      That together with the first security procedure and this one you
      should filter out 99.9% of all FBI attempting access.  And if
      you run a BBS for 1 years you be luck if even one FBI agent
      tries for access.
      The final protection is this, ever time someone accesses the
      board a message should be printed that goes something like this:
      Your useing of any info on this board in anyway, forfits the use
      of this info. angainst the system in anyway or else be subjected
      to presucution in a court of law.
      By having this printed each time a person accesses the phreak
      board no one can say they didn't know.
      Now your system is protected if you use those steps.

I hope to have help yoin your pusiut of phreaking.

      Any coments are well come.
