WIKILEAKS Julian Assange's film Underground

Hi.

Seeing here on T.V. the film Underground that seems to tell the first steps of the guy but like is said on the information it isn't official/authorized by him.

I'm on about half an hour and it already showed him in Melbourne on his some periods where he has a C64 that he first shut off one city Electricity plant, then entered U.S.A. Military,... Now is on intermission for publicity but it already shows that he's in 1989.

Anyone saw the film? Was it possible in 1989/80s with the usual home phone and that modem support really enter on privat and public enterprises, military,...?

 

Yeah, not really A8 but could it be there an 800XL (if was me here back then with mine ;)...) doing the same thing?

Anyone has links to pages talking about hackering back on the 80s and 90s pre-web?

Thanks.

 

 

P.s.- I'll keep you update how things are going on the film?

:grin:

A kid there on his home, seems to be his brother (I didn't saw the film from the begining :() playing International Karate on Sydney screen (with Rob Hubbard's music but not with fighting sounds it seems) about 5mins. ago...

 

P.s.- Humm... and his girlfriend is very nice :P!...

Yeah, C64 is too too slow so he and his two friends had to enter on a place by night to get a P:C. to run a program that goes through all English words that fit for a password.

Now a friend get to his house with an Amiga 500. Lets see the difference/performance from now on ;)...

 

P.s.- And his girlfriend is starting to be upset, very upset with his constant computer and friends with him all the time instead of going out to see if gets a job (she had a baby some scenes ago...).

The End!

Can't say more because it then turned into politics, military,... and that because of the rules here I'm not allowed...

But I invite you to see the film from the begining untill the end (where it has the text passing on with his life after 1991, the born of the Internet, found of WikiLeaks,...).

I you're interested in (mainly US) history I recommend reading through the YIPL/TAP and 2600 magazine archives

http://www.textfiles.com/tap/

https://archive.org/details/2600magazine

 

In the German area "Die Datenschleuder" from CCC is/was the most popular magazine. Partially complete archive is here:

http://ds.ccc.de/download.html

 

Early issues of "Die Datenschleuder" were re-printed in the books "Die Hackerbibel" and there's also a follow-up issue "Die Hackerbibel 2". They are worth a read as well but IIRC they are both long out of print.

 

"Die Bayrische Hackerpost" seems to have been archived, too:

http://bhp.computerarchiv-muenchen.de/

 

so long,

 

Hias

I'm always interested in the "Theater of life" , when People with money look smarter than people with no money ;)

 

Back in those days, it simply would have ruined people to do "brute force" calling a server , until the PW fitted.

Then the "C64" thingy. This has nothing to do here , but some "prestige" for someone. The Atari could have done it better ... I know , why C64 took part there... but, that's another story.

Assange is not what he suggests to be. If you were able to hack some account back then, you had to know the phone number and what's behind it. So the circle is rather small... if you understand.

I have "Die Hackerbibel" in English translation. Fun book to read.

In the 80s, I used my Atari 130XE , 1050 drive and PR:Connection for some simple hacking. Lots of fun I had. I had my own wardialer, and codebreaker program (in BASIC using Hayes modem commands)

 

concerning hackerzines, In the Netherlands we had HackTic - Their old archive is on the web for download - http://www.hacktic.nl/
